Sadanand Dhume led off his Wall Street Journal op-ed last week with this:
Seven decades after the country first embraced caste-based quotas in education and government jobs, they have become permanent entitlements that cement social divisions, encourage mediocrity and poison political discourse.
Segregationist identity politics. This is the preferred ideology of the Progressive-Democratic Party, also. No less a light than Senator Kamala Harris (D, CA) led off her campaign for President saying she would center her campaign on her potential to be our first black woman President, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D, NY) insists it’s time for a woman to be President (she’s a young mom, you see). And San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro (D) wants to be our first Hispanic President.
Notice the pattern here: none of these Progressive-Democrats want to be President of the United States. Every single one of them want to be the first [ethnic/race/gender-of-choice] President of an identity politics-divided United States.
The Indian example is what we can look forward to if the party of identity politics ideology gets a member elected.
