The civil rights movement is now about denying people civil rights



John Cornyn is an establishment Republican, who rarely sticks his neck out for any conservative principals. But like a monkey clattering away on a typewriter, he occasionally does something right, albeit in a small way. This is one of those times.

The Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights is now going to be renamed the Senate Subcommitee on the Constitution. What happened to civil rights?
The term civil rights has unfortunately become a code phrase for the left. Civil rights used to be about giving people the same rights that others had--in the case of Blacks, the right to vote, use public accommodations, and be treated the same for job and school applications.

Now it means something completely different. Now civil rights is about giving special rights to certain groups, while at the same time taking away right from everyone else. Here are a few examples:

1) The struggle against voter ID laws. The fight against voter ID laws has been cast as a civil rights struggle, because it is said that poor black and hispanics can't get free ID's from their state, and nor do they already have such IDs which they must have for renting cars and hotel rooms, buying beer, and boarding planes. The fight against voter IDs permits voter fraud, a Democratic Party specialty, and each fraudulent vote that is cast nullifies the vote of a legitimate voter, reducing, not increasing, our civil rights.

2) Rights for the disabled. The Americans With Disabilities Act imposed massive costs on American businesses that were not always cost effective. Just one example: hotels were forced to install giant robot arms so people in wheelchairs could use their swimming pools. The cost of these lifts were tremendous, and small hotels had to raise their rates to pass this cost onto their customers. A Presidential committee estimates that the average employer paid $930 per worker accommodation since the law took effect. There was no real cost/benefit analysis when these regulations were put in place.

3) Right to gay marriage. Now that gays can get married, religious orphanages who oppose gay marriage can be sued for not letting gays adopt children; bakers and wedding organizers can also be sued for not participating in these marriages; and our children are taught in school that this is a healthy alternative lifestyle (it's not). There is a big difference in allowing people to be gay, and forcing everyone else to participate and/or approve of it. This violates freedom of association and reduces our civil rights.

4) Quotas in jobs and education. Quotas, whether formalized or not, permit less qualified minorities to get jobs and enrollment at universities over other more qualified students. This reduces the civil rights of non-minority students (as well as unfavored minority students, like Asians and Jews) who deserve to be judged based on objective criteria. Furthermore, it also stigmatizes minorities, who many people believe succeed because of lower standards, not merit.

5) Rights for confused gendered people. In latest version of "civil rights", we learn of the imperative right of confused gendered people to harass everyone else. If a boy decides he's "a girl", a school has to let him use the girl's locker room or else risk a lawsuit. It doesn't matter that all the other girls feel terribly uncomfortable being nude around the boy; their civil rights don't matter. Only his does.

No wonder they took the name "civil rights" off the name of the committee! I would too. I'd like to see the committee talk about the "

The liberal media tells us that every ethnic group has its own issues based on their ethnicity. There are Black issues for Black people, Native American issues for Native Americans, and of course, Latino issues for Latinos. If you're born into a particular ethnic group, you have certain positions and needs distinct from other groups. There is no such thing as an individual view on taxes or war or welfare or immigration; If you're Latino, you have a Latino view of taxes, if you're Black, you have the Black view on high-speed rail; and if you're Native American, you must have the Native American view on quantitative easing at the Federal Reserve, and so on.

The US Senate has voted almost unanimously (98-1) that climate change is real. What a relief! I thought the change of weather between July and January might be an illusion. Or simply a giant, uncoordinated global error involving all the thermometers in the world. The climate actually changes! Who knew? The Senate should stop passing laws, and become an oracle and answer the most inscrutable questions like these!
