The Left’s dubious diversity

Cuba's new president Miguel Diaz-Canel, left, and former president Raul Castro, salutes, after Diaz-Canel was elected as the island nation's new president, at the National Assembly in Havana, Cuba, Thursday, April 19, 2018.

The left cherishes a peculiar, pernicious concept of “diversity” as the New York Times demonstrated with its reporting on the new president of Cuba. The newspaper’s headline proclaimed “A Transition of Power in Cuba Sends a Signal on Diversity” and a caption to a photo declares “the members of the Council of State are notably diverse.”

Sorry, New York Times, but they aren’t diverse at all: every one of them is a dedicated Communist, with a slavish reverence for the thuggish, murderous Castro regime. The presence of several women and a few dark-skinned Afro-Cuban faces in public positions does nothing to alter the total ideological uniformity-a uniformity required as a point of law during the last 59 years of the Castro Brothers’ tyrannical rule.

The diversity that matters to liberals is merely racial, while they ignore the more meaningful diversity of ideals and values, scorning conservatives and embracing communist Cuban thugs.
