In The WASHINGTON POST, Conservatism Is “Ideology”, Racial Socialism Is ” Policy”

In minds of Post editors and reporters, only conservatives are ideological, while leftists and government bureaucrats are “policy-oriented” and “pragmatic.” They don’t dabble in “ideology.” They deal with policy.
That isn’t true, of course. Everything HUD does is and always has been as ideological as Ben Carson’s opinions about HUD’s operations.
