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?
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. Todd joins CNN, Politico´s Dylan Byers, and a number of other
Another week, another flimsy attack in Gawker´s years-long crusade against Fox News and its CEO, Roger Ailes. This time, Gawker excited liberal mass media with a scandalized report on legal minutiae related to a settlement between Fox News and a former executive, Brian Lewis, who headed up public relations for the channel. Ailes fired Lewis last July "for cause," the story lending itself to media suggesting the departure exclusively resulted from communications with Soros-backed Ailes biographer Gabriel Sherman. In fact, a Breitbart News report cites a source close to the story then saying
A new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) provided to Breitbart News exclusively ahead of its public release shows that President Barack Obama’s new amnesty for illegal aliens related to members of the U.S. military is a system full of loopholes. On Nov. 15, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a new memo detailing a new policy through which the Obama administration planned to exempt a new category of illegal aliens from deportation and other forms of enforcement of immigration law. CIS’s John Feere, in his report on the topic, detailed what the administration tried to make it
President Barack Obama may be recalling the lessons and story of Nelson Mandela at a memorial in South Africa today, but a series of photographs on the internet suggest another story may be being told. A series of pictures posted on the twitter account of ‘Stun’ show President Obama chatting with the prime minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, as Michelle Obama looks on in a not-so-pleased manner.
Four days before the legal deadline, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said she had not yet signed up for Obamacare, but was still mulling over the plans and what might work best for her family. As of Dec. 9, the deadline for members of Congress, Wasserman’s office had not responded to CNSNews.com’s inquiry on whether the lawmaker had enrolled. In a CNN interview on Dec. 5, host Wolf Blitzer asked Rep. Wasserman Schultz, “Because you’re a member of Congress, you have to go to the healthcare.gov website. Have you done that already?” The congresswoman said, “Yes, I’m in the middle
Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) proposed legislation on Monday that would prevent the federal government from giving bonuses or raises to people who run state-level health insurance exchanges under ObamaCare. Gardner´s bill, H.R. 3679, is a response to a recent effort by Patty Fontneau, who runs Colorado´s health insurance exchange, to get a raise and bonus. Gardner said Fontneau is seeking a raise even though the Colorado exchange is far behind its enrollment target so far this year. The Denver Post reported just 6,000 Coloradans were signed up through mid-November, even though the exchange expected that enrollment of 11,000 people would be a
The 2013 winner of top political player on Capitol Hill is… Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.). The senator stands out as the leader of the Democrats’ historic move to go to the “nuclear option,” ending the paralysis by threat of filibuster that tied the Senate in knots for the last five years. The junior senator from the Beaver State showed a lot of political bite, in the form of persistence, and has become a left-wing hero as a result. Merkley, with a big assist from Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), won the biggest vote of the year on Capitol Hill by convincing Democrats they were
Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday will announce $100 million in government spending on mental health services, trumpeting the investment during a meeting with family members of victims from the massacre in Newtown, Conn. The Department of Health and Human Services will spend $50 million to “establish or expand behavioral health services for people living with mental illness or addiction” and the Department of Agriculture will finance another $50 million “for the construction, expansion or improvement of mental health facilities in rural areas over the next three years,” according to a White House official. The HHS funding is being made available
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, considered the nation´s second-most influential court behind the Supreme Court, now tilts Democratic, thanks to the Senate´s new filibuster rules. The Senate on Tuesday confirmed President Obama nominee Patricia Ann Millett to the appeals court, a long-delayed move that bring the bench´s judicial lineup to nine — with five judges appointed by Democratic presidents and four by Republicans. Millett, who was confirmed by a vote of 56-38, will be just the sixth woman ever to serve on the court in its 120-year history. "Patricia Millett has risen through the ranks of government
Not a single Republican voted for the Affordable Care Act, but they must now help Democrats make the law work, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor Monday. Although the rollout of the Obamacare website was "rocky," many of the major problems have been fixed, he said. "There are still problems with the Affordable Care Act and ways we can make it better. But we can´t improve the law without help from reasonable Republicans. It´s time for my Republican colleagues to give up their fantasy of repealing a law that´s already benefiting tens of millions of Americans and start
A small but growing number of physicians are not accepting government insurance, such as Medicare and Medicaid, and are even refusing to accept patients’ private insurance, according to Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). Orient says the transition to a business model in which patients agree to pay doctors directly for the health care services they provide started before Obamacare was passed, but that the new law has accelerated the trend, especially among AAPS’ 4,000 or so members. AAPS is the conservative alternative to the much larger American Medical Association (AMA), which endorsed Obamacare
Everybody is taking selfies these days, it seems. Even President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron got into the self-portrait act Tuesday at Nelson Mandela´s memorial service. We´re not sure whose smart phone was used, though Obama has said he doesn´t have an iPhone because of security concerns. We´re also not positive who the other person in the snap is -- the AFP photo caption didn´t identify her -- but it looks an awful lot like Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. First lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, appears to be paying attention to the program. "Selfie," which is the Oxford Dictionaries word of the year
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
