Communists are attempting to repeal civil rights. Who could have seen this coming? After all, it isn’t like even the most cursory glance at the history of communism, and other leftist ideologies have a systematic history of doing precisely this. Nor is there an active example currently harvesting organs and forcing people into slave labor in China.
Sarcasm aside — yes, it was fairly obvious we would inevitably reach this point — there is a reason One Angry Gamer has repeatedly warned you about these people and taken every opportunity to call out their antics in Geek Culture. They’re totalitarians who will tolerate no dissension in either their ranks or against their ideology.
Now in historic rhyming fashion, California following a vote in their senate is moving forward with a referendum to repeal civil rights in their state. Why? Why undo decades of progress established by people of all races and walks of life endeavored to establish, suffered to see realized, and even died for? Because it forbids them from giving Black Lives Matters the affirmative action quotas they are demanding.
As Ballotpedia explains,
Proposition 16 would remove the ban on affirmative action involving race-based or sex-based preferences from the California Constitution. Therefore, federal law would define the parameters of affirmative action. The U.S. Supreme Court has held that race-based affirmative action in higher education and government contracting must be reviewed under strict scrutiny. In the U.S., strict scrutiny is a form of judicial review that requires a law, policy, or program to serve a compelling state interest and be narrowly tailored to address that interest. Courts have ruled that strict racial quotas and racial point systems in higher education admissions are unconstitutional but that individualized, holistic reviews that consider race, when tailored to serve a compelling interest (such as educational diversity), are constitutional.
Section 31 of Article 1 of the California Constitution doesn’t merely forbid discrimination based on gender or race. It also establishes the legal framework and enshrines one’s right to seek remediation if one is discriminated against for reasons of race or gender. When it is abolished, California will have the right to mandate quotas, discriminate against whites, and legally nobody will have any recourse against these injustices.
(a) The State shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.
(b) This section shall apply only to action taken after the section’s effective date.
(c) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as prohibiting bona fide qualifications based on sex which are reasonably necessary to the normal operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.
(d) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as invalidating any court order or consent decree which is in force as of the effective date of this section.
(e) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as prohibiting action which must be taken to establish or maintain eligibility for any federal program, where ineligibility would result in a loss of federal funds to the State.
(f) For the purposes of this section, “State” shall include, but not necessarily be limited to, the State itself, any city, county, city and county, public university system, including the University of California, community college district, school district, special district, or any other political subdivision or governmental instrumentality of or within the State.
(g) The remedies available for violations of this section shall be the same, regardless of the injured party’s race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin, as are otherwise available for violations of then-existing California antidiscrimination law.
(h) This section shall be self-executing. If any part or parts of this section are found to be in conflict with federal law or the United States Constitution, the section shall be implemented to the maximum extent that federal law and the United States Constitution permit. Any provision held invalid shall be severable from the remaining portions of this section.
Something to think about: communists and all left-leaning forces have never allowed the useful idiots to survive their ascent to power. Right now, Black Lives Matter, but after the Marxist regime has established power, those Black Lives will be lined up against a wall and shot. Yet, say we manage to avert that from happening. How likely do you think whites will be to reestablish anti-discrimination laws after experience systematic discrimination? How likely do you think Jews will be to do so?
Even if you manage to accomplish its restoration, how long do you think it will take for this to happen? There won’t be another Martin Luthor King Jr to unite people. There will not be another Malcolm X to lead people. You may not have the opportunity to reverse this.
