In sensitivity training, USDA
employees recite ‘If we work
for a federal agency, we’ve
discriminated in the past’

Daily Caller, by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/21/2013 10:22:52 PM

Additional clips of a United States Department of Agriculture sensitivity training class feature USDA employees being told to recite, “If we work for a federal agency, we’ve discriminated in the past.” The clips, released by the conservative government accountability group Judicial Watch Thursday evening, are the second installation of revealing footage obtained by a Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) request the organization made last May. According to Judicial Watch, the documents reveal the sensitivity training was delivered to USDA employees at least 16 times last year in an attempt to boost employees’ “emotional intelligence.”

Comments:
Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch was on O´Reilly tonight. He said there are more videos to come from this miscreant and he has made over $2 million from these pathetic diversity training classes. The DOD has also participated. It´s no wonder the government is going bankrupt. 0bama and his regime simply don´t care as long as they are getting out their anti-American messages.

I hope I live to see the day when these leftists limosine liberals who have infiltrated so many levels of government and taken so much taxpayer money are thrown out on their butts to have to try and make it in the private sector.

And against Guilt By Association.

This is but one example of the ways the Obama Administration redistributes taxpayer´s money to minority enterprises for work that is of little or no value.

Brainwashing. Are we so cowed by the government that we would refuse to repeat this drivel? It is past time to push back against the re-education that is permeating this country. Progressives will never give up their agenda unless they are forced to do so. It is time to stand up for freedom before we lose the opportunity. What Progressives ask now, they will demand under penalty of death in the future. Force is the only way they will ultimately succeed. Wake up America. Your freedom is at stake.

What is also sick, in my view, is that the audience laughs and goes along with this race-baiting creep. Even in church, I am loathe to participate in such "repeat after me" exercises. There was a time in my life when I would have sat quietly by without saying anything, but now I would raise my hand and let the leader know that I am very uncomfortable letting anyone put words in my mouth and will not participate.

"The birds did not understand Snowball’s long words, but they accepted his explanation, and all the humbler animals set to work to learn the new maxim by heart. FOUR LEGS GOOD, TWO LEGS BAD, was inscribed on the end wall of the barn, above the Seven Commandments and in bigger letters When they had once got it by heart, the sheep developed a great liking for this maxim, and often as they lay in the field they would all start bleating “Four legs good, two legs bad! Four legs good, two legs bad!” and keep it up for hours on end, never growing tired of it."

If there was positive feedback from the employees they must have been in fear of their jobs!

Friends, let´s not forget two critical facts:

1. Every dollar the Federal gov´t spen-- ´scuse me, invests, is indispensable in securing the Republic´s Foundations.

2. Every private business in the nation has similar programs, and others like the Fed employees get-away "conferences."

[Unfortunately, there´s some truth to Point 2.]

Yes you have. Egregiously.

Against law abiding American citizens in their fields, their hatcheries, their feed lots, their food plants. Against farmers, ranchers and growers of every kind.

While failing to properly protect the food chain, consumers and the future of American food production. While taking bribes and spending nearly $100 million on fancy restaurants, trips and ´conferences´.

Yes You Have Discriminated In The Past. And we, the citizens you work for, want you held accountable.

There are gazillions of blacks working in federal agencies. Do they have to repeat this drivel or is it only the whites? How about the Hispanics? The "native Americans"? If it´s only whites then they should get together and file a class action discrimination lawsuit.

Why are many of you so perfectly aghast and surprised by these actions of the feds? This is normal operating procedure for a police state. Some of us have all seen this before but never ever believed it would have happened here.

Think about it the notion of police home inspections was introduced in a bill last week in Olympia. Read it for yourselves (http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020373291_westneat17xml.html). The lawmakers who introduced the bill later claimed that it was a mistake made by an overeager staff, but only after someone actually read the bill and called them on it.

Who would have believed this even possible 10 years ago? Face it our beloved Republic has evolved into a socialist Democracy and millions of Lofos helped create it.

I rarely watch lame stream media TV stars because I start feeling sad for them. And us. I saw this Agriculture charade and when he said the Pilgrims are illegal immigrants my insensitivity had me laughing. These folks must have breezed right through the Indian border and customs agents. Actual I laughed because his repeat after me was utterly ridiculous. And the people that stuck around to listen must have zero self respect not to be able to think for themselves. Teleprompters and zombies is what makes me sad.

I looked up the Dr of Who-Knows-What who leads these Who-Knows-Why seminars and he´s part of a large organization that does this for federal, state and local groups. Glenn Beck had Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch on his show the other day to talk about this. He also had a guy from DC,in silhouette with his voice disguised, describe this surreal seminar. He´s afraid of losing his job, as well as all of the other people who were forced to be there and listen to that pap. What a waste of our taxes! I wish somebody with common sense could eliminate all of these stupid programs from what should be the federal budget. I don´t think we even have a budget anymore.

#7 - I did time, 7 years, working as a program analyst for my county´s social services department. In my first months there was a "diversity training" that followed this same mold, and I walked out. The next day I detailed for my supervisor why I had walked out. She was dumbfounded, but did not pursue the matter.

Several years later, while representing my department at an "all county" meeting there was another "training" led by an Asian woman, a black woman and a Hispanic woman. They complained about the "institutional" racism they had all suffered personally. The racism boiled down to "white people are rude to me." After the presentations there was the usual go-around-the-table where everyone dutifully made observations about the value of the training. I was the last one and stated that I felt this was a good opportunity to recognize the strides in racial relations that this country had accomplished since the 1960´s. All the reps from the other counties clapped loudly and long. The looks the presenters directed to me were deadly.

The next morning my supervisor called me in and told me that I would no longer be representing our county at these meetings. When I asked her who called her, the Asian or the Hispanic or the black, I could tell by her face that someone had but she insisted "Your too valuable in the office to go to the monthly meeting anymore." Ha.

A few months after that she set me up to be the "supervisor" for”diversity training" for our unit. I pushed back against the trainer at that one, too. Formal complaints were filed complete with an investigation into my "racist attitudes" and "anger problems." From then on my work life was hell. About a month after that I went to lunch one day and never went back.

Lefties purge just like Stalin did, only instead of killing you that make work life untenable.

I once worked for a company, the owner forced all employees into an evangelical Monday morning lecture and prayer session- themes on the "Fifty moral seeds of Christ!" They made us recite the bible, chant, throw our arms up in the air- shouting "Praise be to God!" You should have heard the talk and laughter of this brainwashing attempt out in the shop- And, the thing was, the man who stole the most, cheated people of their wages and lied to employees the most was the man who stood at the podium- the Owner and his sons! I figure this is exactly the same type of set-up. Employees will do it, because they fear losing promotions and even their jobs- but, they walk away snickering and ridiculing the people who force them to sit through this scatological substance.

What is even worse since most state and federal agencies are predominantly employed by blacks and hispanics, the sanctified racism against whites spills over to the white people they are employed to serve. Visit the post office, DMV, any federal office like Social Security, the IRS, Homeland Security or any court desk and the intense hatred against whites is so apparent by their attitude they actually gloat at losing files, records or just making people who have no where else to go to get a passport, their SS check, tax refund, etc.

Diversity and sensitivity training is for the sole purpose to intimidate and scare whites into submmission.

reminded us of a Communist china indoctrination class back in the days of
Chairman Mao. Yes, they are disgusting meetings and the attendees are cretins to

mandatory. Who is an employee going to make a grievance to, the DOJ?

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
