The Case against Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The more we see of Kamala Harris the more we understand that she is Joe Biden’s insurance policy. Anyone who cringes at Joe Biden’s pathetic attempts to pretend to be compos mentis will quickly see that the alternative, a Harris presidency, would be worse.

At the same time, and the point is rarely noted, Harris is the best living argument against diversity, equity and inclusion. After all, why else does she have her career but for her ethnicity. She brings multiple forms of diversity to the job, job for which she is thoroughly unqualified.

When history is written, we will all pore over the arguments for and against diversity quotas. But, a living, breathing exemplar of the absurdity of hiring people for ethnicity will stand forth-- Kamala Harris.

Anyway, Harris has been in France working to save our diplomatic relationship with that country. As you know, in his effort to restore the relationships that had supposedly been sundered by the Trump administration, Biden cut France out of a nuclear submarine deal with Australia. 

Then again, one will understand that sending a buffoon like Kamala Harris might well be considered to be a major diplomatic insult. Also, most recent American political leaders have hardly been seasoned politicians, people who had worked their way up the political ladder. Name me another leader in another country anywhere in the world who compares with Harris on the incompetence scale.

Anyway, Harris visited the venerable Institut Pasteur laboratory where she affected a faux French accent and then rattled on about science on a third grade level to some very serious scientists . You can’t make this stuff up.

In a short space Harris made herself look like a fool and thoroughly embarrassed the country.

The Daily Mail has the report:

Harris on Tuesday visited the Institut Pasteur science lab, where Americans are working alongside Europeans to tackle COVID-19 and where her Indian-born mother researched breast cancer.

Harris spoke about her love of science, and her dismay at how politics could not be as methodological and logical as their experiments.

'In government, we campaign with 'The Plan,' Harris said, with what some said was a French accent to discuss 'the plan'. 

'And then the environment is such we're expected to defend 'The Plan' even when the first time we roll it out there may be some glitches and it's time to reevaluate and then do it again.' 

Harris also spoke about why she liked scientific approaches.

'One of the things people in politics and government should really take from the approach of scientists - scientists operate with a hypothesis. I love that,' Harris said. 

'A hypothesis - it's well-thought-out, it's well-planned, they start out with a hypothesis and then they test it out knowing invariably, you're trying something for the first time, there will be glitches, there will be mistakes. 

'Then everyone gets together, no one gets beat up about it, you analyze it - what went wrong, reevaluate, update the hypothesis and start again.'

Always good to be lectured by Harris on something she knows nothing about. Now we know why the Biden administration has not allowed her out in public.

And her vagina.

Democrats did this to themselves, but mostly to the people in the cities and the states.

PM Zoolander in Canada might challenge Harris on the incompetençy scale.

memetic, depending on how you look at the question other body parts could be involved, too.
