Being a ‘progressive’ these days means 1) calling for the destruction of that which is known to work, in favor of that which is known not to work, and 2) normalizing the abnormal.
What “multiculturalism” boils down to is that you can praise any culture in the world except Western culture — and you cannot blame any culture in the world except Western culture.
