Progressives' "Multicultural Sensitivity"

What being "multicultural" means to a progressive:

1) A professor who students were all from countries where it is unthinkable to call a professor by their first name, forced them to call him by his first name. He didn't give a crap about their culture: what was important was to force progressive values on them.

2) A progressive, told that a Muslim woman who he would be meeting would not be comfortable shaking hands with a man, shook her hand anyway. He didn't give a crap about her culture: what was important was to force progressive values on her.

3) A progressive to whom I mentioned that my kids had attended Catholic school: "Yuck!" (Sticking out her tongue.) Tolerance only extends to exotic religions in far off places!

4) A progressive who moved into an Italian Catholic neighborhood: "I hate all of those statues of the Virgin Mary in the front yards!" Mind you, she moved into this neighborhood! The Italian Catholics had been there for 100 years.

  1. Reading a Fairfield County Patch article about a newly established organization that will help refugees get settled in CT.
    As expected, the organization will be settling the refugees in Norwalk and Stamford where they will be "more comfortable", not in the organizations town of origin.
    Raised an eyebrow and drew a smirk on our faces.

to not want to work with someone who smells bad? I have the unfortunate job of telling someone whom I am mentoring that when they return ...
