This isn’t as many spooky. Critical race theory asserts that the only path to the unattainable goal of real social justice is the permanent one-part Kafka, one part Orwell, and three parts identity politics panopticon. On Frank TV earlier, Wayne Allyn Root and I were discussing the entire weaponization of the government. This is yet another illustration of that. The Left is always looking for fresh strategies to completely militarize the government. It never misses an opportunity to expand its fresh Berlin Wall for America by adding another brick, angle, or option. Another illustration of that is provided here. SB 54 will now be on Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk after passing the state Senate by a vote of 32 to 8. The bill orders the disclosure of” gender identity of each member of the founding team”( their race, ethnicity, LGBTQ status, etc. ) and, more menacingly,” any member in the foundering team declined to provide any information described in clauses.” Venture capital firms operating in California are required by the bill to report the diversity breakdown of founders they fund to the state, which includes reporting on the gender and ethnic and cultural background of them as well as the dollar amount given to them. You’ll pay the price if you refuse to reveal anything. You and your small dog as well. The obvious objective here is to put pressure on venture capital firms to compel the businesses they fund to gather in-depth data about the founders and to persuade them to include” tokens” who are merely there to supplement diversity statistics. There won’t be a shortage of Asians, Native Americans, and gay people on these lists, but they aren’re not sufficiently various. As a result, we have witnessed the spectacle of Silicon Valley companies being accused of lacking diversity when 40 % of their workforce is Asian or Indian. California’s identity politics Dems believe that the government should actively monitor the physical interests of tech company founders.
This isn’t creepy. It’s the panopticon of identity politics, Kafka and Orwell that is the constant one-part Kafka-one-part Orwell-three-parts-identity-politics-panopticon that the critical race theory insists is the only path to the unattainable goal of social justice. This is an example. The Left is always looking for new ways to weaponize government. The Left is always looking for new ways to weaponize the government. Here’s another example. SB 54 passed with a vote 32-8 in the state Senate. It will now go to Governor Gavin Newsom. The bill requires that venture capital firms in California report to the state the diversity breakdown of founders they fund. This includes reporting on their gender, ethnicity and racial backgrounds, as well as the dollar amount given to each founder. The goal is to get VCs to make sure that the companies they fund collect detailed information on the founders. This will include a lot of Asians, Indians and gay people, but it’s not enough diversity. Silicon Valley firms have been told they are not diverse because 40% of their staff are Asians or Indians.
