Bestselling Author Fired For Mocking Publisher’s Diversity Policy
FTA: Publishing giant Penguin Random House has announced that its authors are no longer to be chosen on literary merit but according to a politically correct quota system “taking into account ethnicity, gender, sexuality, social mobility and disability”.
Yes, you read it correctly, no longer will new books be chosen on literary merit. No writing skills required, just diversity.
Author Lionel Shriver (pictured above) was fired as a literary judge because she brought up the farcicality of this position.
Gird your loins, people, because that kind of foolishness will be ramping up here in the U.S.A.
