The speech, "When Diversity Becomes a Problem: The Fascist Nature of Liberalism", spoke mainly of leftist terms that he claims were created to tear apart the foundations of the country, and argued that, with race, those who incorrectly emphasize skin color in regards to diversity are the ones who are truly racist.
