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.
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." George Orwell
If you have ever read Howard Zinn, you know that this pablum has been taught in our schools for the past 20 years. We are raising a generation who have been taught that the USA is a nation of hate and prejudice.
" ... In sensitivity training, USDA employees recite ‘If we work for a federal agency, we’ve discriminated in the past’..."
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.
Who´d ever believed re-education camps in this country? The indoctrinating style of the ´´recite´´ stuff is downright spooky to watch. I agree with Rush... Not proud of my country, for the first time. More properly, not proud of my gooberment, on a daily,... nay, hourly basis. The steady emanations from Washington and Sacramento play havoc with my BP. What a fresh Hell this is!?
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.
We have already seen video clips of these "employees" in their state-run meetings that 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 have not walked out. Guess that money conquers all and Federal Agencies make certain things mandatory. Who is an employee going to make a grievance to, the DOJ?
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
Twitchy, the conservative Twitter aggregation site, has been sold for an undisclosed amount to Salem Communications, the Christian radio conglomerate and owners of Hotair.com and Townhall.com. Jonathan Garthwaite, general manager and editor-in-chief of Townhall.com, confirmed the news to BuzzFeed Tuesday, saying he was “excited” to be folding Twitchy into existing Salem news properties. “Media Matters types would like to paint conservatives as boring, old white guys,” Garthwaite said. “Twitchy adds more fun and humor to our platform, which will appeal to totally different generation and break that stereotype.” Launched in March 2012, Twitchy was the brainchild of conservative author and
In a visit to NR’s New York office, Senator Ron Johnson said the fight against Obamacare is entering a new phase: “We’ve got to start talking about transitioning.” Johnson won his Senate seat in 2010 based in large part on his fierce opposition to Obamacare, which he still adamantly opposes as an assault on Americans’ liberty and criticizes in the harshest terms (look no further than his recent weekly radio address). But simple repeal is no longer enough, he believes. He says that Republicans have to acknowledge that the law now exists. “How do you repeal?” he asks. “Yeah, you
President Obama´s appointment of Democratic adviser John Podesta, an opponent of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, to the White House could foretell a rejection of the controversial Canada-to-Texas pipeline, environmental groups said Tuesday. Podesta, former President Bill Clinton´s chief of staff and the man who headed Obama´s transition team, is leaving the top post of the Center for American Progress, a left-leaning think tank, for a new White House role focusing on climate change. Obama has vowed to lead an active White House on the issue — the president said in June he would rely on his executive authority to
President Obama is still holding back on firing anyone for the disastrous first two months of the Obamacare roll-out and instead is adding key staff to help steer a smoother course next year. While critics are still calling for heads to roll, some Republicans say Obama´s decision to bring in two well-known Washington players to help right the ship shows he´s serious about shaking up his second-term strategy and execution. Senators on both sides of the aisle are praising the prospect of Obama tapping veteran Democratic strategist John Podesta, a former chief of staff for President Bill Clinton. This week,
MSNBC anchor and NBC News political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd lashed out at Fox News for what he described as "pandering to an audience" over their coverage of President Obama´s enthusiastic handshake with Cuban dictator Raul Castro at Tuesday´s memorial service for Nelson Mandela. Chuck Todd ? @chucktodd Follow Really? An entire segment on a handshake? Good grief; pandering to an audience 10:37 AM - 10 Dec 2013 The irony of an MSNBC anchor accusing another network of pandering to their audience requires no explanation.

New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
