TUCKER: Democrat Affirmative Action Agenda Embarrasses Us On The World Stage

TUCKER: Democrat Affirmative Action Agenda Embarrasses Us On The World Stage

“If you’ve got a meritocratic society, it’s pretty hard to play race politics because race plays no role in advancement,” Carlson said. “Individual initiative is what matters. Group interests are irrelevant in a meritocracy.”

“Now, that may sound idyllic to you,” Carlson said. “It may sound like the kind of country you’d want to live in, but for the Democratic Party, it was a disaster.  How do you get your voters to the polls if they’re not racially aggrieved? It’s hard.”

Carlson continued, “Democrats introduced a new concept. They called it ‘affirmative action.’ The idea was to punish or reward Americans based on the color of their skin.”

He noted, “Ironically, this was precisely the evil practice that the civil rights movement was designed to abolish. Racial discrimination was unequivocally wrong.”

“Oh, but no, said Democrats slyly repainting the slogans on the barn, actually, racial discrimination can be good,” Carlson said. “It all depends on who’s being discriminated against. That was their argument.”

“That is still their argument more than 50 years later, but even now, after all of this time, most people, if you explain it clearly, don’t really buy it,” Carlson said. “‘Wait, I can’t have a job or get into college or get a federal contract because I was born with the wrong skin color? That sounds wrong.'”

“And of course, they’re right,” Carlson added. “Affirmative action is wrong. It’s totally immoral.”

“Affirmative action is not only the very definition of racism. It’s also highly embarrassing in its particulars,” he continued. “The closer you get to it, the more embarrassing it is. When you elevate people on the basis of their appearance, you tend not to get very impressive people. Why would you? Unless you’re buying sunscreen, skin tone is a totally irrelevant criterion.”

“[Supreme Court Justice Sonia] Sotomayor openly concedes that she got her job because of affirmative action,” Carlson noted. “She was completely and demonstrably unqualified for the position. Obama chose her because of the way she looked. Now, that may sound deranged, but it actually happened. No one disputes it.”

Carlson then noted that during oral arguments over a Supreme Court case on affirmative action, Sotomayor “repeatedly confused the terms ‘de facto’ and ‘de jure’ in a blunder that “no first-year law student would ever make.”

“It doesn’t happen because the terms have entirely different meanings. ‘De facto’ means something that’s not in the law but happens anyway,’ Carlson said. ‘”De jure’ means something that is happening that is sanctioned by the law. See the distinction? Of course, you do, and you’re not even a Supreme Court justice. But Sonia Sotomayor doesn’t see it.”

“We have racial segregation under the law in America? That’s what Justice Sonia Sotomayor just said,” Carlson said. “Why is this woman wearing a robe? Even after Justice Alito corrected her, Sotomayor kept saying it was de jure segregation. She said de jure segregation in 2022. Jim Crow is still on the books.”

Carlson concluded, “This is the society that affirmative action has created. Sonia Sotomayor doesn’t know what ‘de jure’ means. Ketanji Brown Jackson can’t define what a woman is. ”

    A-firn-a teeve action. That’s where a white male collage graduate with a bachelors degree who was a decorated commissioned officer in the US Army who scores 98% on the civil service test for the police department (that’s 113 points with the military points) has a black female with a only a GED and no work history, that soared 68 on the test appointed to the job over him. —- Can’t happen? – Check what happened to the Cleveland Police Department back in 1973. And there were several that were appointed over far more qualified white males.

    BTW,,,,This particular black female never qualified left handed with the pistol which is a requirement that somehow got overlooked,,,,,but she was again promoted over white males who scored higher then her on the Sergent’s exam and them she was again prompted over white males and one black male who scored higher then her on the Lieutenants exam. (I was there and saw it happen)

    Far as I’m concerned her whole (rather undistinguished) career was a first class slap in the face of the fine male Cleveland Coppers that happened to be black that before 1973 went toe to toe against all comers and got on the job,,,,,to say noting abut the both white AND black makes that were rejected because there was a minority female quota to fill and they were tossed in the affirmative action dumpster of history. It’s not getting any better, either. Wounder how long it will be before there has to be some percentage of LBGQRST alphabets hired with each class, What we need is a copper that cant figure out weather they are a boy or a girl deciding weather to shoot or not shoot.

    No matter what the position, Military, Civil Service, or private sector, the only thing to be considered has to be qualifications. ,,,,, Until we start to do that we will continue to have people on the job that wouldn’t make a pimple on a policeman’s ass. This insanity has got to stop!

    If we are going to keep “Affirmative Action” , then it needs to be applied to the NBA and NFL …. both sports do not have enough Hispanics, Asians and Caucasians on their rosters.

      I’d love to see what the compassionate yankees would do to some minority in the NHL. BAM

    Katanji Jackson and Karine Jean-Pierre are also unqualified “affirmative action” picks! They are the “right” color and KJP commits sex in the correct way.

    1858 Jim Crow ruled minorities were 3/5ths a person. In 2003 they were ruled 4/5ths a person. No one complained. “they” know they are inferior, less than, NOT equal. So do I

    Please explain your versions of history and of humanity. From your comment, it seems quite curious to say the least.

    It’s my understanding that it was in 1790 that ENSLAVED blacks were ruled as 3/5th of a person in the Constitution, but not FREE blacks. In 1865 and 1866 the 13th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution ended that.

    It was after the Civil War ended in 1865 that the Jim Crow Laws started in the South in the 1870s. That was due to the Democratic Party. It ended in 1964 under LBJ with overwhelming help from the GOP.

    In 2003 no blacks were ruled 4/5s of a person by any court as far as I know of. Can you cite any court and case otherwise?

    You claim no one complained? From the beginning of America, some people opposed such counting of minorities as legally and genetically inferior. It took some time to catch up with God’s Word though. Or do you mean by “no one” that only referred to true human beings, i.e., Aryan Nordic Caucasians?

    You claim “they”, I assume you mean blacks, know they’re inferior? Please show that and by what standards.

    In the Gospel, blacks were never counted as less than humans, a whole person. Do you prefer otherwise? If so, you’re neither a true American patriot nor a Christian. If the latter, I urge you to seek the Jew, Yeshua Hamashiach.
