Kimmel Suggests DEI Critics Are The New Confederates

An intellectually unsophisticated Jimmy Kimmel reacted to Alabama’s new anti-DEI bill during his Thursday monologue on ABC by claiming that those in favor of it do not like reading and are some sort of Confederate dead ender.

Kimmel began by reporting, “In Alabama, they just passed a bill that will ban Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs at all public schools and universities and it also requires universities to get rid of gender-neutral bathrooms.”

For Kimmel, the idea that you would not teach children that they are responsible for the sins of the past or that meritocracy is racist or sexist is just a cover for not wanting children to read, “The sponsor of the bill is a Republican named Will Barfoot, who has been very anti-reading ever since he realized he had the word ‘Barf’ in his name.” 

Kimmel wrapped up by invoking the not-so glorious aspects of Alabamian history, “The bill was signed into law yesterday by Governor Kay Ivey. She’s terrific. Her motto is, ‘if at first you don’t secede try, try, again.’”

By contrast, Jimmy Kimmel’s motto is “if you can’t win the argument on the merits, just project nasty motives onto Republicans.” At least that motto would be accurate.
