During my 18 years on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights we’ve had innumerable hearings covering nearly every conceivable aspect of equal treatment and equal protection under the law. During such hearings, progressive witnesses and commissioners adamantly maintained that men and women are not just equal, but the same; that there’s no meaningful difference between the two. It was a universal truth, inarguable.
In last week’s commission hearing on women in prison, however, more than one witness proclaimed that men and women are, in fact, different. One expert witness even asserted that men and women are very different. Blasphemy. I felt prompted to duck under my chair.
Yet lightning didn’t strike these witnesses. No progressive commissioner demanded the witnesses’ removal nor was there even the slightest objection.
This momentary descent into reality was immediately overshadowed, however, by witness demands that the United States justice system cease incarcerating women. All female prisoners should be released.
Because men and women are different. When it suits the Left’s agenda. If you want to know the political Left’s plans for America in five to ten years from now, read their statements before the Civil Rights Commission today.
