The NDP admits what we've always suspected: They're racists:
The president of the New Democratic Party thinks her party needs to aggressively diversify its ranks in order to better reflect Canadian society.
"I think the party's too white, I think all parties are too white. But so are we, and so let's start doing some better outreach and acknowledging that, so we can change the look of the folks around the table," Rebecca Blaikie said in an interview with host Chris Hall on CBC Radio's The House.
The key word is "look". Not think or act but look. The only diversity that Rebecca Blaikie - daughter of former NDP MP Bill Blaikie - gives a damn about is the kind that's a few millimetres thick. Now you know and I know that black people can be just as economically illiterate as white people. Brown people just as immune to logic as Scandinavians. So from a practical standpoint a less white NDP will still be - you know - the NDP. Leaving aside the irony of people who call everyone else racists admitting that they're racists too, there's the deeper glimpse we're getting of the Dipper soul.
Beyond the rhetorical flourishes the Left's essential message is a return to collectivism, that view of the human race that had dominated history until the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. While they talk about being "progressive" each of their ideas calls for a return to a traditional form of social arrangements that retarded the human race for millennia. Chaps like Edmund Burke are often called "conservatives", yet in the grand sweep of history Burke was a radical defending the comparatively progressive social and political arrangements of Hanoverian Britain. In its proper sense the Rightists are the progressives and the Leftists are the reactionaries trying to fight genuine social progress.
Like Baskin Robbins collectivism comes in more than 31 flavours. There's your old fashion feudal collectivism, theocratic collectivism, Marxist collectivism and the ever popular racial collectivism. That last one Ayn Rand famously described as "barnyard collectivism" as it was based on so non-essential an attribute as people's physical appearance, something obvious to any fool strolling through a barnyard. Even the Marxists - butchering bastards that they were - had the intelligence to sort people by the abstract category of class. With that in mind we can see that the NDP is taking us all back to the barnyard, back to the most primitive type collectivism imaginable. Having failed to convince the world of the necessity of class struggle, the NDP will instead preach a doctrine of racism.
Forget about how the NDP looks. They way they talk is repulsive enough.
