As a leftist rule of thumb — once again rendering intellectual debate unnecessary and impossible — white is wrong and bad and non-white is right and good; male is wrong and bad and female is right and good; and the rich are wrong and bad and the poor right and good. (…)
In a more rational and morally clearer world — where people judge ideas by their legitimacy rather than by the race of those who held them — people would be as likely to ask why blacks and ethnic minorities are virtually absent at tea parties as they would ask why whites predominate. They would want to know if this racial imbalance said anything about black and minority views, rather than assume that this imbalance necessarily reflected only on the whites attending those rallies.
They might even conclude — Heaven forbid — that it does not reflect well on the political outlook of blacks and Hispanics that they so overwhelmingly identify with ever-larger government.
