“Identity Politics” – a sacred cause for today’s Democratic Party – is reshaping American life, law, politics, culture and virtually every major institution. Yet most people have little or no idea what it really is – or how dangerous.
Though the term has changed meanings over the years, “identity politics” today has morphed into something so perverse and destructive as to literally promote hatred, conflict and mental illness on the individual level, and on a societal level widespread mistrust, tribalization and ultimate disintegration of the greatest nation in history.
All this is dramatically explored in the October 2018 issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, “IDENTITY POLITICS IS DESTROYING US: How diversity mania is poisoning politics, culture, education and science.
Not long ago, America was almost universally recognized as not just the world’s most powerful and successful nation, but amazingly enough, also the freest, most optimistic and unified, despite its being the most multi-ethnic country in history. That’s why America has long been the No. 1 destination for refugees and other immigrants the world over.
But today – thanks to this mysterious factor called “identity politics” – America’s treasured unity has been replaced by a bizarre national obsession with “systemic racism,” “implicit bias,” “discrimination,” “structural inequality,” “misogyny,” “Islamophobia,” “xenophobia,” “homophobia,” “transphobia” and a never-ending stream of new sins and phobias.
Indeed, it’s all today’s left can talk about, having successfully propagated the myth that the ranks of Republicans and Christian conservatives are full of racists, fascists, Klansmen and Nazis. Meanwhile, college students are drowning in a culture of fear and guilt, pathologically fixated on mysterious new phantom sins like “white privilege,” “toxic masculinity,” “micro-aggressions” and “cultural appropriation.
