Columnist maddeningly inconsistent in supporting conservative causes
I’m experiencing whiplash reading vacillating George F. Will columns. In his “California’s ‘progress’ a warning to all U.S.” (Opinion, Sept. 20), Will cites California’s Proposition-16 attempt to reinstitute racial preferences in public education, employment and contracting—preferences eliminated through a 1996 public referendum. Per Will, Proposition 16 “would repudiate individual rights in favor of group entitlements” as part of California’s “agenda to make everything about race, ethnicity and gender.” California’s push for perpetual preferences along with other actions, such as dictating corporate boards' prescribed numbers of government-favored minorities, illustrate progressivism that’s apt to spread nationally, which Will opposes. Yet Will has used other recent columns to show and encourage support for a Joe Biden presidency – a presidency that may well aid in accomplishing that which Will supposedly abhors. I know there have been concerns about Biden’s current mental fitness. I’m beginning to find Will’s suspect as well.
