In the Twilight’s Last Gleaming’s words, “The Left’s worst nightmare: The Truth.”
Herein lies the hypocrisy of the left. They want women and minorities (women are a majority, by the way) to have an extra edge over white males. Any time a woman or a non-white person shows some promise, they become the darlings of the liberal media. Unfortunately, the liberals have caused society to add an asterisk to any such candidate.
Liberals have already assumed that women and minorities have no chance of succeeding without the aid of welfare and Affirmative Action. When one does rise without such assistance, such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas did, the liberals do everything in their power to block that success. Without women and minorities being kept dependent on entitlement programs, the democrats would be out of power.
And thus the “Civil War” mentioned earlier.
