DEI largely killed America’s attempt to create an industry making advanced microchips


“DEI — the identity-obsessed dogma that goes by ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ — has now trained Google’s new AI to refuse to draw white people. What’s even more alarming is that it’s also infected the supply chain that makes the chips powering everything from AI to missiles, endangering national security,” notes an article in The Hill.

DEI requirements contain in the CHIPS Act are thwarting the creation of an advanced microchip industry in the U.S.  America invented the semiconductor, but today produces only 10 percent of the world’s supply—and none of the most advanced chips. 90 percent of the world’s advanced microchips are made in Taiwan, which China is preparing to annex by 2027, perhaps as soon as 2025, creating a threat to our national security.

The CHIPS Act gives the Biden administration $39 billion to hand out to subsidize semiconductor manufacturing. But companies that planned to produce more semiconductor chips are busy canceling planned plants to avoid costly “diversity” requirements in the CHIPS Act.

Chipmakers have figured out that the CHIPS Act creates so many bureaucratic obstacles to building and operating a chip factory that doing so would be prohibitively costly for most of them.
