Reilly noted that tests like the SAT or the mile run were designed to treat participants equally, and at end of the day, “whoever finishes the mile run first, or gets the highest score on the SAT, makes the team or goes to the college.” Egter, the left has made such tests about racial and other “identities.”
Op die ou end, according to Reilly, the results of such tests are not the most important determinants of success.
“The main predictors of success are intelligence, aggression, and so on,” hy het gesê.
While neither Carlson nor Reilly believes the left’s obsession with identity is new, but do agree it has reached a fever pitch.
“The core argument used to target the USA … at least since Marx, the critique has been, ‘You are a capitalist violent predatory country,’ one, en twee, ‘That’s used to exploit minorities because you’re a diverse country,’” said Reilly.
“This idea that we should constantly emphasize race … and that we should recognize the capitalist system as evil, those two things, ek dink, have been the main arguments against America all the time, and I don’t think they have ever been made with much positive intent in mind.”
“Every single argument you notice on the hard left … there are the same two solutions proposed,” Reilly continued. “Een, become less capitalist. And two, as you become less capitalist, divide up your ruling class … by race proportionally.
Reilly cautioned that this kind of appeal will not have long-term positive outcomes: “If we’re now saying, ‘Wel, this is all nonsense, your score depends on your race and sex,’ … what you’re doing is reminding people how to categorize themselves with every single thing you do. En nee, I don’t think that’s a positive outcome.”
