K-Lo and Sommers Are Right, Thomas Perez Is Wrong


At K-Lo’s suggestion, I read Christina Hoff Sommers’s excellent discussion of why the feminists are all wrong about today being “Equal Pay Day.” Alas, the head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Thomas Perez, apparently did not get the message in time, and he cites the day favorably in his testimony today before the Senate Judiciary Committee. That’s the least of the testimony’s problems, though, and its themes will not come as any surprise to Corner readers: Perez brags about the disparate-impact lawsuits the Obama administration is bringing, its support for expanding gay rights, its amicus brief supporting the University of Texas’s use of racial preferences in admissions, and so forth.
