In retrospect, the permanent ban of President Trump from Twitter can be described as a cultural event. Why? Because Trump pretty much lived on Twitter. It was his unique way of expressing his personality by sidestepping the media and perhaps the most powerful method of connecting with his constituents.
But as we contemplate the aftermath of the censorship, looney Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey wasn’t solely responsible for the banishment, although he whole-heartedly supported it. The true architect of Trump’s suspension was Vidaya Gadde, a PR executive at Twitter and, ironically, the daughter of ulra-conservative Indian immigrants, who moved to the U.S. in the late 1970s or early ’80s. She received an Ivy League education at Cornell and went to New York University Law School, before making a beeline to Silicon Valley. Says Dinesh D’Souza, Gadde was probably part of the great Indian diaspora of very conservative Indian families who came to America. “If you look at the way they behave, it’s to the right of Pat Robertson.”
So how did Gadde assume an ideology that was so alien to what her culture believes and thinks. D’Souza says the answer is simple. What happens to these Asian Americans who attend elite schools and plant themselves in progressive American cities, is that they assimilate to progressive culture. “In other words, they want to become American, and becoming American for them is assimilating to the culture of Yale, or the culture of Cornell or the culture of San Francisco.” He adds that part of this assimilation is coming up with made-up stories of gender discrimination or racism. A sad epithet, indeed.
Here’s more from D’Souza, including is own skit of what really happened in the Gadde family.
