The Case Against America’s Racially-Driven ‘Revolution’

In the wake of the George Floyd incident, the United States and the world have embarked on an increasingly fraught conversation on race, history, law enforcement, and the underpinnings of modern civilization. Is America’s ‘progressive’ left really a reactionary movement in disguise? 

“A refugee from Africa, Ayaan Hirsi Ali fled to Europe to escape an arranged marriage, becoming an activist, (now former) member of the Dutch Parliament, and now a research fellow at the Hoover Institution. With a different set of life experiences and perspectives from American-born Blacks, Hirsi Ali discusses how, as a Somalian, she views America as the best place on earth for minorities to grow up and achieve their potential. While acknowledging the hardships and miseries that American Blacks have endured and that racism still exists in many quarters of American society, Hirsi Ali emphatically believes that America is more than capable of solving racial inequalities, provided it preserves the institutions that ultimately ended slavery and empowered the protest movements of the 1960s that birthed the Civil Rights Movement. As she wrote in a recent column for the Wall Street Journal, an opinion she reiterates on this show, “There will be no resolution of America’s . . . problems if free thought and free speech are no longer upheld as sacrosanct. . . . Without them, honest deliberation, mutual learning, and the American ethic of problem-solving are dead.”

Uncommon Knowledge host Peter Robinson talks with Ayaan Hirsi Ali about the politics and race and ‘privilege,’ as well as the ethical failure of the American left. Watch:
