Eric Holder accused of forcing blacks into failing schools for diversity
Remember when Civil Rights activists protested about individuals being denied the right to choose where they went to school? Well, that was then. In this enlightened age, it's okay to prevent folks from attending certain schools as long as it's done in the name of Civil Rights:
Attorney General Eric Holder is pushing black students into schools that are failing just so he can crow about diversity statistics, more than two dozen Republican senators charged Thursday. Republican Sen. Pat Toomey was one GOP member who made the accusation, speaking about the fallout from Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana when needy students in the state received scholarships for private schools. The students hailed from schools that were failing, more than 90 percent of them minorities, the Hill reported. But the Justice Department asked that some of those students stay at their present schools — the failing ones — to ensure the ethnic population contains at least 30 percent blacks, the Hill reported.Think this bothers Eric Holder? Not one bit. This attitude isn't really so much a liberal thing as it is a statist thing. It not only applies to domestic policy, but foreign policy, too. Look at the ongoing horror of Iraq's slow-motion civil war, which was caused by the US overthrowing the autocratic regime that nevertheless kept the peace between Sunnis and Shites. Results don't matter--all that matters are the nobility of the intentions. That's the DC mindset.
