According to a recent report in The College Fix, “The University of Washington Department of Psychology violated a non-discrimination policy by putting “inappropriate” emphasis on applicants’ race in a hiring decision earlier this year…”

The article explains that the department’s hiring committee faced intense pressure from the diversity advisory committee to rerank candidates based on their race, rather than the original order that was based on the University’s hiring rubric. The College Fix continues, “The university investigation found hiring committee members felt pressured to do so because of ‘DEI’ efforts and not because they ‘changed their minds about which candidate is most qualified.’” Both university policy and state law prohibit discrimination on the basis of race and sex.

How does DEI create racism?

“DEI” stands for the words “diversity, equity, and inclusion.” All three words represent virtues that many of us support. In Tablet Magazine, Bari Weiss recently published an excellent piece titled “End DEI.” She noted that “DEI” is now a metaphor for a cultural ideology “bent on recategorizing every American not as an individual, but as an avatar of an identity group, his or her behavior prejudged accordingly.”

Weiss stated, “What I saw was a worldview that replaced basic ideas of good and evil with a new rubric: the powerless (good) and the powerful (bad). It replaced lots of things. Color Blindness with race-obsession. Ideas with identity. Debate with denunciation. Persuasion with public shaming. The rule of law with the fury of the mob. People were to be given authority in this new order not in recognition of their gifts, hard work, accomplishments, or contributions to society, but in inverse proportion to the disadvantages their group had suffered, as defined by radical ideologues.” This “inverting worldview” gradually captured all of the crucial sense-making institutions of American life: universities, media companies, museums, philanthropy, medical schools, law schools, corporations. In Washington State, the Democratic majority has created DEI mandates that are imposed from the top down into all of these institutions and local governments, including our schools.

Given that DEI replaces color-blindness with race obsession, it’s no surprise that the implementation of DEI at the University of Washington would result in pressure to focus on race in hiring, resulting in a clear violation of state law and university policy.

Welcome to the Cultural Revolution

Sadly, today’s conservative Americans are woefully unprepared for the cultural revolution that is about to take place in our country. Many Americans are watching with disbelief as it finally becomes blindingly obvious that DEI is the tool being used to corrupt every institution and sweep away our system of “equal justice under the law” in favor of identity politics, race-obsession and religious intolerance.

Radical Marxist-progressives are holding massive demonstrations in major U.S. cities calling for Jewish genocide. A Christian street pastor was shot on a street corner in Las Vegas while preaching. A white high school student was beaten to death by a gang of black classmates. Asian-Americans are being excluded from attending ivy league universities. Everywhere we look, racism and intolerance has grown stronger because of DEI.

Toxic ideology with Marxist roots

DEI is a toxic ideology with Marxist roots which is rapidly becoming a state-approved religion designed to destroy America’s Judeo-Christian culture from within.

Americans of all religions, faiths and creeds must prepare to work to restore and promote the cultural virtues that have made America a great country. America was founded by people who believed in the principles of the Judeo-Christian religions which recognize “that being made in the image of God bestows inviolate sanctity on every human life.”

We must each work in our own way towards these goals: Uplifting individuals (not races or groups); recognizing merit, talent, and hard work; encouraging personal responsibility; restoring the rule of law and public safety; and working to restore fairness in the court systems, elections and all other public institutions.

If we each focus on our local environment — our schools, our local boards and non-profits, as well as our local elected officials — we’ll gradually begin to turn the tide of the Marxist cultural revolution. The current cultural decay didn’t happen overnight. Restoring American greatness won’t happen quickly, either. Recognizing the toxic ideology that threatens us all is only the first step. Do what you can to end DEI.
