    If "diversity" is a compelling state interest, why not racial preservation?

    The kind of race / gender-based social engineering that Miers seems to think will help society, if legally justified and politically implemented, is, to me, as big a divergence from our founding principles as there is. And beyond that, it has proven a practical failure insomuch as it has granted legitimacy to the notion of identity politics and given power to racial charlatans and feminist social engineers in whose interests it is to keep the country divided into warring factions.

    Of course I agree that the racial engineering Miers appears to champion is a terrifically bad idea (and probably why Reid and the the rest of the liberals will support her). But it hasn't proven a practical failure by granting "legitimacy to the notion of identity politics..."

    What lent legitimacy to 'identity politics' is nature itself, Goldstein. You and your tribe pretty much started the whole thing, if I might mention that. Anyway. You seem to think it's terrible when blacks or whites seek it, but never when Jews seek it. Why, just look at the rest of your links!

    Tip for today: All politics are identity politics.
