The Silver Lining in Joe Biden's Failed Economy

Corporate diversity consultants and woke journalists keep losing their jobs

December 7, 2022

President Joe Biden has presided over a failed economic recovery marred by rampant inflation and a Democratic megadonor's multibillion-dollar fraud scheme. Nevertheless, there is a silver lining to the sluggish economy: Corporate diversity consultants and left-wing hack journalists are getting fired at a rapid clip.

Major tech companies such as Meta, Amazon, and Twitter have cut thousands of jobs over the past several weeks. Fortune magazine reports that these layoffs are "decimating human resources and diversity teams." That's great news for America.

Last month, for example, the ride-hailing company Lyft cut 13 percent of its workforce. Hannah Said, the firm's "Diversity and Inclusion Business Partner," announced that she was fired along with the "majority" of her department. In that role, according to her LinkedIn profile, Said "strategically influenced Talent Acquisition/Recruitment through equitable hiring trainings, outreach and engagement activations, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Councils," among other things.

Dalana Brand, the "Chief of People and Diversity" at Twitter, resigned shortly after immigrant billionaire Elon Musk took over the social networking website and started firing people, including several leaders of the company's diversity-focused employee resource groups. Musk also reportedly dissolved "the entire human rights team." Whatever that means.

Media companies are also firing employees. BuzzFeed on Tuesday said it was cutting about 12 percent of its workforce. NPR announced a hiring freeze in an effort to cut $10 million from its annual budget. Newspaper chain Gannett has fired 600 employees since August. CNN has fired a number of partisan hacks, including conference call masturbator Jeffrey Toobin, and announced last week that hundreds more were likely to be terminated in the coming weeks.

Biden's presidency is certainly one of the saddest moments in American history, which is why it is so important to highlight these silver linings. There may be hope yet for our wonderful country.
