The lunacy of celebrating diversity gets even loonier

Phoenix City Council votes for rainbow crosswalks

Since the inception of our nation, America has been enriched by people of various backgrounds coming to our shores to form a bond that celebrated unity. As grade school students, we were given a single dowel and asked to break it. Of course, it snapped easily in our young fingers. Then we were given several dowels corded together and found that the same task was not easily accomplished. This early lesson was intended to clearly illustrate the power of unity, which in the case of populations, needs assimilation to flourish.

But today, the bonds of unity are cast aside for the celebration of diversity — the very thing that separates us.

 Conservative intellectual Thomas Sowell, once wrote, “The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.” His 2013 column,Words that replace thought,” remains relevant.

We veer off into diversityville today to inform our readers that the liberal majority on the Phoenix City Council including Mayor Greg Stanton — also a self-identified “progressive” congressional candidate — voted unanimously to join what the Arizona Republic newspaper has described as a ”nationwide trend of painting crosswalks with a rainbow design to celebrate the local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.”

Heterosexuals, who replenish our earth as God commanded in Genesis 9:7, aren’t worthy of celebration.

Until three years ago when Bruce Jenner revealed himself on the cover of Vanity Fair as “Caitlyn.” few had ever heard the word “transgender.”  Now, thanks to the liberal media, which call homosexuality aculture,” what was previously identified as deviancy, has become so mainstreamed it’s being taught as merely an alternate lifestyle in public elementary schools.

The Seattle Times picked up the crosswalk story, characterizing it as “Phoenix honors gay pride.”

Vastly outnumbered, by leftists, Republican council members Sal DiCiccio and Jim Waring chose to be absent rather than engage in the rainbow crosswalk vote.

    This is of course an absurd virtue signaling gesture to garner votes and attempt to indoctrinate society.
    But
    Let’s take back the rainbow! Long before condoning Sodom and Gomorrah the rainbow was a reminder of Gods love for ALL not just for one segment of society.
    So thank you council members publicly for posting such a beautiful reminder of Gods love for is all.
    God always wins!!!

    American are now supposed to passively accept everything from sexual perversion to to the vile coarseness that was passed off as comedy during the embarrassing monologue by Michelle Wolf at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner last night. I watched the video on the Drudge Report and thought the audience screen shots were interesting. Initially the mostly left leaning audience laughed at the anti-Trumpisms. Then they tittered and looked around the room to see if they were alone. From the panning of the room, it was clear Wolf was losing even this crowd. Then she zoned in on Sarah Huckabee Sanders, President Trump’s spokeswoman. I don’t shock easily but her verbal assault on Sanders was shocking.

    How glad I am that the president snubbed the event. Remember the love fest from the presenters when Obama was president? There’s no denying the double standard from the press that is by no means unbiased.

      We’ve sunken very low and worst of all, our children who miss nothing these days, are negatively impacted by this radicalism that now pervades nearly every segment of society.

      Michele Wolf’s profanity laced routine was disgusting, but so are the liberal teachers who are using incendiary tactics to impose their will, while abandoning our kids who are entrusted to them in the hopes of getting an education. They are instead witnessing a revolution worthy of the Socialist/Communists Lenin, Trotsky and Marc who brought us the Soviet Union, responsible for constricting freedom, denounced private ownership as all under the repressive thumb of the regime worked as robots for the same pay (whether scientists or dogcatchers) and all property was government owned. It was a public manipulation of private money just as the liberal teachers are pushing.

    These crosswalks are an insult to those of us who are faith and Bible based. There is truth and there is political correctness trying to sway public opinion. We need to remember, the devil is in the details.

    • Kent says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the liberal union teachers are the ones who volunteered to maintain these crosswalks in the heavily “gay” areas where they are appearing. They can take their students along to further indoctrinate them on the pride they should have for alternative lifestyles.

    Milo Yiannopoulos driven out of bar by mob**

    **Conservative commentator (and Trump supporter) Milo Yiannopoulos was driven out by an all White crowd associated with the Democratic Socialists of America, who gathered to chant, “Nazi scum, get out.”

    What “diversity?” It doesn’t exist on the Left. There are even more and better examples. This is a very recent one.

    • Realist says:

      This increasingly common misuse of the word ‘Nazi’ is another example of historical illiteracy, The last I read/heard Milo Yiannopoulos didn’t systematically starve, perform gruesome “medical” experiments on, lethally gas or incinerate millions of live human beings….men, women and children.
      If you have your facts wrong, thank a teacher.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        Realist – your last sentence could be made into a new, modern bumper sticker to fit the times.

    The Rainbow crosswalks may seem like a good idea now, but when the mayor runs for the governor’s office it will be a constant reminder what a “kiss-A**” he is to the leftist.

    • D.B. Cooper says:

      Your thought is on target but the office Stanton is running for is Congressional District 9, the seat being vacated by Krysten Sinema, who is now running for the US Senate.We need to work to ensure they both lose, or Arizona will be in the deepest of trouble, with two more far lefties in DC.
