Its rhetoric notwithstanding, the left loathes diversity.

Dissent drives it nuts. It's forever scheming to eliminate, co-opt or undercut alternative institutions.

It controls three of the four major networks, but obsesses about Fox News. It has The New York Times and the rest of the dominant print media, but agonizes over talk-radio and conservative websites.

Even though the mainline Protestant churches are safely in its vest-pocket, it's threatened by the success of conservative denominations.
