Progressives Hate Merit-Based Anything

The Dom Giordano Program
Monday, August 12th
Progressives seemingly want gender to play a larger role in the hiring practices of a new occupation, policing. The Asbury Park Press and the USA Today Network, in a recent expose, exposed a growing gap between men and women working for the country’s police. Back in 2014, the Department of Justice sued the state of Pennsylvania, alleging discrimination against women created by physical fitness tests. It was argued that because of Pennsylvania’s lofty expectations for police fitness, more men were passing the physical fitness test than women. Some have pushed for a ‘more fair’ test, or what Dom refers to as a dumbing down of the test, just so there’s more equality on state police forces and in police departments around the country. Dom argues against this, just another example in a war against merit-based hiring, and explains why he’s against making tests easier based on sex.
