No Logic

Isn’t it bizarre that the same political party that insists that the concepts of “female” and “black” have no meaning and that all you need to do to be one is say you are is the party that made such a big deal out of nominating a “black female” VP candidate?

There’s got to be some semblance of logic to all this. If anybody can be a woman whenever they feel like it, then what’s the value of nominating a woman?

It’s also starting to seem like Democrats have a problem with non-immigrant blackness. It’s almost as if they thought that blacks who have been in this country for a couple of generations aren’t good enough. When are they going to run somebody black who’s not from one of the highest achieving immigrant groups?

  1. Probably never.
    Even the politicians are pragmatic enough to realize the importance of functionality.
    One way or another they’ll always focus on the “highest achievers”, even if on the sly.

      Who can talk about functionality in the age of Biden?

      Or, did you mean ‘functionality’ as ‘name recognition’ which exists for “highest achievers”?

      Obama? He was seen as African-American.

    I think it’s no so much that they say the concepts have no meaning as the meanings that they ascribe to the words are, not to put too fine a point on it, kind of nutso.
    female – an arbitrary metaphysical category subjectively felt by an individual that bears no relation to anatomy or reproduction
    black – a non-biologicial category created by racists to oppress people with certain characteristics of some nature, it has morphed into a metaphysical category, membership in which is decided by the group (and decidedly not by individuals).
    The thinking in the democratic party is what happens when you abandon religion but not subjective metaphysics…
