Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “How the woke devour their own”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

See how the revolution devours its children? Last week, Britain’s sole Green Party MP, Caroline Lucas, called for a government of national unity to step in and cancel Brexit. Not just any government of national unity, though. One made up wholly of women.

Lucas, who represents the delightfully louche, ultra-liberal city of Brighton, listed the cross-party ladies whom she wanted to save Britain from itself. And it was here that she incurred the fury of her fellow leftists. Can you guess what her sin was? Of course you can. As she put it in a groveling statement the following day: “An all-white list of women isn’t right. I should have reached out further and thought more deeply about who, and what kind of politics, an all-white list represents. I apologize.”

But why? Seriously, by what possible logic is it acceptable to exclude people on grounds of sex but unforgivable to exclude people on grounds of color?

Think of the ethical gymnastics, the twists and contortions, that you’d have to go through to come up with a coherent worldview that justifies arbitrary rules like that. Yet, for a large and growing chunk of the population, reason and consistency no longer matter.
