Leftist Groups

To meet the Obama administration’s goal of “implementing a robust diversity strategy” at the Department of Defense (DOD), the agency’s director of diversity violated government rules by distributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to controversial leftist groups. Adding insult to injury, a “consulting” firm gets nearly half a million dollars from the DOD to help distribute the money to groups—even those that don’t qualify—that support the Pentagon’s “diversity strategy and program objectives.”

Among the recipients is the notorious open borders group League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Minority Access Inc., a Maryland-based nonprofit committed to decreasing disparities and reducing incidences of environmental injustices, and the renowned National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Others include the Society of American Indian Government Employees and the Asian American Government Executive Network. In all, the Pentagon’s Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity (ODME) gave these and other groups north of $300,000, according to a DOD Inspector General report released this month. These are considered “affinity” groups involved with networking or professional associations that are often race, ethnic background or gender based, according to the report.

The high-ranking official who violated DOD and government rules by doling out the cash to unqualified “non-federal entities” (NFE) is Clarence Johnson, the DOD’s Director of Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity. In 2010 Johnson, a veteran Pentagon official, was assigned to assist the Army in implementing a robust diversity strategy. The position came with a hefty budget to support diversity outreach functions and Johnson launched a cash giveaway, filling the coffers of groups that should not have received public funds. In its report the DOD watchdog concludes that Johnson “improperly co-sponsored NFEs that he had selected.” Auditors found that Johnson spent $301,000 on NFE sponsorships and recommend “corrective action.” The money flowed through a company called New Concepts Management Solutions (NCMS) that was evidently handpicked by Johnson. In 2012, the Office of Diversity Management hired a consulting firm called Deloitte for $480,554 to handle the diversity outreach allocations.

Here’s a brief breakdown of how some of the money was divided. The Thurgood Marshall College Fund Leadership Institute Conference got $25,000, the Society of American Indian Government Employees got $12,000 for a training conference and a conglomerate called Latina Style Outreach received $20,000. LULAC and the Hispanic Engineer National Achievement Awards Corporation (HENAAC) received $25,000 each. It appears that Johnson knew well that he was violating agency rules when he headed the diversity crusade because the report reveals that the DOD Office of Special Counsel has consistently said that the agency should not “sponsor” non-federal entities like the ones Johnson gave money to. In addition to money, Johnson provided these various groups with logistical manpower compliments of Uncle Sam.

It’s unlikely that Johnson will face any repercussions for his transgressions or, at most, a weak slap on the hand. He certainly appears confident in testimony to investigators probing his violations. “My job is to grow, or focus on growing, the presence of minorities and women” in government jobs with higher pay scales, Johnson told investigators. He added that the mission of his office is diversity outreach, which involves informing the diverse audience. This is why he seeks affinity groups that have a “national reach” and influence.

President Obama has made it his mission to culturally transform government by teaching federal workers about diversity, race and gender, healthcare disparities and cultural competencies. The effort has affected practically every major agency, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Health and Human Services (HHS), among others. It’s been a costly initiative for taxpayers. A few months ago a Judicial Watch investigation found that the Obama administration has paid a Chicago-based firm millions of dollars to strengthen the federal workplace with its brand of diversity consulting. This includes two recent DHS contracts for $24,000 and $10,000 and one for $8,500 from the Department of Energy (DOE).

A middle school in San Francisco threw out student election results because the winners weren’t “diverse” enough.

Now, parents and students alike are up in arms.

The student election at Everett Middle School in downtown San Francisco’s Mission District was held on October 9, but the results have not yet come out yet.

One of the students involved in the election, seventh grader Sebastian Kaplan, explained that the delay was because school administrators were concerned that the student body had elected too many white kids to leadership roles.

“The organizers are saying things like, ‘we want everyone’s voice to be heard,’ but in truth, the voters’ voices are not being heard,” Kaplan explained. “Most kids are in agreement that the results need to come out because kids worked really hard on it.”

“The whole school voted for those people, so it is not like people rigged the game,” he added. “But in a way, now it is kinda being rigged.”

All students in the school voted in the election.

Principal Lena Van Haren, 36, however, justified valuing diversity over democracy by explaining that the student government had to be more “representative.” Apparently, by adding voices that the student body itself has specifically not chosen to represent them.

“It’s not OK for a school that is really, really diverse to have the student representatives majority white,” she said, without justification.

Despite immediate criticism from parents, Van Haren brushed off claims that she was running Everett Middle School elections essentially like a member of the Castro family: “This is middle school. It’s not a presidential election.”

After overwhelming controversy–both from parents and the media–Van Haren agreed to certify the original election results, and let white students like Sebastian Kaplan take the offices that the entire student body had elected them to have. But said she still stood by her effort to increase diversity in student leadership.

Kennedy Affirmative Action

DiversityInc, “the dominant ‘diversity’ publication” announced the opening of their annual competition on Tuesday to pick the 50 “best” diverse corporations.

While diversity extends beyond race and includes gender, sexual preference, disabilities and veterans, the competition appears to be nothing more than a political correctness talent show.

2014’s winner, Novartis Pharmaceuticals prides itself with 40% of its workforce falling into “15 employee resources groups.”

The drug company also touts its performance and goal process that adds 20% weighting to matters of diversity.

To the company’s credit, Novartis stock has increased by 20% in the past year.

Other companies that fell into DiversityInc’s top 50 in 2014 were:

  • Sodexo
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • Master Card
  • Procter & Gamble
  • General Mills
  • Target
  • IBM
  • Coca Cola
  • Walt Disney
  • Time Warner
  • Monsanto

The U.S. government has allowed affirmative action programs since 1961 when President Kennedy signed Executive Order 10925.

As with any government program, an industry has grown around race-based hiring and contracting that is now immense, and wrought with fraud.

The government’s 8(a) program within the Small Business Administration provides preferential contracts and bidding to minority-owned businesses. In 2011, one business alone, Alaska Native Corporation, was caught submitting fraudulent bills to the government totaling more than $20 million.

In addition to government programs that focus on diversity, this political correct movement has infected the private sector, which has now institutionalized diversity in nearly all of America’s large businesses.

This is largely due to legal requirements of companies with more than 100 employees to report the race and ethnic categories of their employees to the EEOC.

Modern companies that place pride in recruiting talent, regardless of race, ethnicity or religious or sexual preferences are recognized annually with awards . . . but most of those companies are not based in the United States.

While many would assume DiversityInc is a group led by Al Sharpton, it’s a company owned by Luke Visconti who publishes a column titled, “Ask the White Guy.”

As with the tactics of Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, many studies have questioned the benefit of affirmative action and the diversity industry. Has it lead to increased diversity or increased division?
