Opinion: Republicans’ Latest Diversity Train Wreck – Ann Coulter

Republicans’ embrace of “diversity” has been an unmitigated disaster, as illustrated most recently by Sen. Katie Britt, whose response to President Biden’s State of the Union address came with a double dose of diversity.

Why was this first-term senator chosen? To boost her reelection chances? She’s from the reddest state in the Union, won her last election by 30 points, and her term doesn’t end until 2026.

Because she’s an amazing public speaker? Quite obviously, it wasn’t that.

She gave the response because she’s not a white male. The last time Republicans picked a white man to give the GOP response was in 2012, when Gov. Mitch Daniels gave a great speech, despite the glaring absence of any blubbering over the unique suffering of women and minorities.

Which brings us to Katie. Asked to give the GOP response, she delivered it from her kitchen table because she’s a mom just like you, suburban woman who will never vote Republican.

She not only was “diverse” herself, but she made sure to drag a minority into her argument against Biden’s border policy, which is to have no border.

An open border, Britt told us, is bad for the illegals. This was in accordance with the modern rule of etiquette requiring that no policy be criticized unless it can be shown that it harms someone other than whites, men or Americans.

Thus, for example, affirmative action has been actively screwing white people out of college admissions, jobs and promotions since at least 1970. (Allan Bakke found this out in 1973, when he was rejected from the University of California, Davis, medical school in order to make way for hilariously less-qualified minorities.)

Even after decades of this open, egregious race discrimination, Republicans are terrified of stating the obvious: Discriminating against white people is unfair to white people. Instead, the preferred argument is: “It’s not good for black people, either!”

Perhaps, but they’re not complaining. And we’re still stuck with the unfairness to whites.

It is a remarkable fact that, after more than half a century of rank race discrimination against whites, the Supreme Court finally decided affirmative action was unconstitutional only after it was shown that racial preferences harm Asians.

Similarly, Britt’s argument against the Biden policy of dragging millions of illegal aliens into our country was not that it’s unfair to Americans, although it’s their home that’s being wrecked. No, it was that our nonexistent border is bad for Mexicans.

Thus, Britt said:

“I spoke to a woman who shared her story with me. She had been sex-trafficked by the cartels starting at age 12. She told me not just that she was raped every day, but how many times a day she was raped.

“The cartels put her on a mattress in a shoebox of a room, and they sent men through that door, over and over again, for hours and hours on end.

“We wouldn’t be OK with this happening in a third world country. This is the United States of America, and it’s past time we start acting like it.”

Democrats are permanently destroying the greatest country on Earth — which happens to be where we live — but Rosalita’s life has gone from a negative 9, living in Mexico, to a negative 10 being human-trafficked.

As with affirmative action, the GOP can only attack illegal immigration by saying it’s bad for the illegal immigrants, who apparently are driven by some invisible force to stream into our country. Their illegal behavior is something we’re doing to them.

Help! Someone keeps burning down my house!

GOP: Oh my gosh — was the arsonist hurt?

In producing a diverse person to make her case, Britt botched the story six ways from Sunday.

As we now know, the serial rapes didn’t happen in this country, but in Mexico. Even if they had occurred here, who did Britt imagine was doing the raping? As described in my book “Adios, America!”, child rape is rife in Latin America. It’s their culture, having nothing to do with our enticing open border. My idea: Let’s not let that rape culture come here.

The rapes also didn’t happen under Biden, but under President George W. Bush.

So that was great. Britt’s bleating for a diverse person gave Democrats something to talk about other than the thousands of American lives snuffed out by illegals at a rate of about 40 a week.

Britt could have talked about 27-year-old Washington State Trooper Christopher Gadd, killed days before the SOTU by an illegal in a “sanctuary state”; 10-year-old A.J. Wise, killed while walking home from school last month by an illegal alien hit-and-run driver in Midland, Texas; Travis Wolf, killed in Missouri by a boozed-up illegal in December — the night before Travis’ 12th birthday; Diane Hill Luckett, mother of three, who died in March of last year after being smashed into by a drunk illegal alien with a string of criminal convictions to his name (and zero deportations); or David Breaux and Karim Abou Najm, stabbed to death by an illegal alien on a killing spree in Davis, California, last April.

Half of the murdered Americans I just listed were black. But when it comes to immigration, black Americans might as well be white men. “Illegal immigrant” trumps “American” because diversity is our greatest strength.
