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.

Collective Guilt. Democrats used to be against that.

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.

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Isikoff joined NBC News in 2010 as a Washington, DC-based investigative correspondent, after 16 years with Newsweek.

AP President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview. Mr. Cameron, who became one of the most successful men in

A nine-month-old boy who appeared in Pakistan charged with attempting to murder police officers has been cleared, following a week-long police investigation. Baby Muhammad Mosa Khan was accused of being part of a ruthless gang of gas thieves who tried to kill police by hurling stones at them during a raid. Last week he was pictured at court in Lahore sitting on his grandfather´s lap, contentedly sucking on a bottle of milk as the charges against him were read out. A Pakistani lawyer said the judge announced the decision after Saturday´s court hearing during which police said it had dropped the charge

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

But this Thursday, four presidents – Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter – will stand together at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas. The historical significance of this moment cannot be overstated. The presidents will come together as a powerful symbol of America’s ability, as demonstrated 50 years ago, to

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools. Still reeling from the closure of 50 schools in 2013, embattled Chicago Teachers Union Karen Lewis called the turnaround plan “a slap

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
