Obama’s Race-Based Spoils System

Patrick J. Buchanan, World Net Daily, August 25, 2011

{snip}

In our time, however, Chester Arthur’s achievement [making the U.S. government into a meritocracy] has been undone, as a racial spoils system in federal hiring and promotions has been imposed by Democratic presidents, unresisted by Republicans who rarely exhibit the courage to stand up for their principles when the subject is race.

A week ago, an item buried in the Washington Post reported that Obama had “issued an executive order requiring government agencies to develop plans for improving federal workforce diversity.”

Obama, wrote Isaac Arnsdorf, is targeting “a problem that has been on the administration’s radar. Whites still hold more than 81 percent of senior pay-level positions.”

Now, as white folks are two-thirds of the U.S. population, and perhaps three-fourths of those in the 45 to 65 age group who would normally be at senior federal positions, why is this “a problem”?

As no one has contended otherwise, we have to assume that the men and women who hold these top positions got there because of the longevity of their service and the superiority of their skills.

Why is the color of their skin a “problem” for Barack Obama?

As reported here previously, African-Americans are hardly underrepresented in the U.S. government.

Though only 12 percent to 13 percent of the U.S. population, blacks hold 18 percent of all federal jobs. {snip}

{snip}

The EEOC, where African-Americans are overrepresented by 300 percent, has been asked to oversee the new “government-wide initiative to promote diversity and inclusion in the federal workforce.”

I’m not making this up.

Perhaps, while he is battling for a greater diversity of sacrifice and rewards up there on Martha’s Vineyard, our president might reflect on another example of the overrepresentation of white males–in the caskets coming home to Dover.

{snip}

Does this overrepresentation of white men in the body bags and caskets coming home bother our commander in chief, who wants fewer white men at the top level of his executive branch?

{snip}

Has Obama taken a close look at his hypocritical party on Capitol Hill? Though African-Americans are fully 25 percent of all Democratic voters, in a Senate Democratic Caucus of 53 members, there is not a single black man or black woman.

Well, regretfully, we are told, none was elected.

But if liberals believe in affirmative action, why don’t Democratic senators practice as well as preach it? Why don’t they lead by example rather than by exhortation?

Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer have been around for decades. Why do they not agree to flip a coin, have one resign, and have Gov. Jerry Brown appoint Rep. Barbara Lee, head of the Black Caucus, to the U.S. Senate?

{snip}

Senate liberals applaud affirmative action programs that deny white students and white federal workers admissions and promotions they have earned by their labors. But when, ever, has one of these liberals voluntarily made the sacrifice that he demands be imposed upon others?

    This Barry is no fool. His agenda is to destroy this country in a devious manner playing on white guilt. Most of the whites who voted for barry never bothered to investigate who he was nor his agenda. They were swayed by his skin color, his slogans, and his smooth talking. If they bothered to look, they would found that most of his adult life he hung around with black communist radicals. His wife and his close advisor, Valerie Jarrett are communist. He listened to an American hater for over twenty years, “Rev” Wright but off course, he never heard a thing. Skip Gates (beer summit guy) is another black radical that barry knew very well but never let on they were past friends. The definition of communism is taking from other who earned it and giving it to others with their hands out.

    We lost the right to free association. Then we lost the right to be treated equally (AA and set-asides). Now comes losing the right to government jobs. Soon private industry employment. Then private property. The the Gulags.

    My question is: will the Kennedys, Bushes, etc. really escape the horror or is that reserved soley for the average white?

    If it is all black, is it 100% diverse?

  • THE MAN

    It is interesting how this article started out about race and by the end they politicized it . It started off to be a brave observation in this day and time but you could see the shift when the writer didn’t feel comfortable to bring it all way home. We need for a class action to be filed naming the President and all other unknown officials by federal workers. Quotas are against the law. Don’t think for a minute that if the conservatives in the Republican party could get .0001% of the black vote they wouldn’t be for the President’s order. I challenge all white organizations to make a stand against this .This is the “Last Stand ” or it could be the “Beginning “.

    This is news?

    Kennedy started it when he told federal agencies to get more QUALIFIED blacks into the federal service and more black military officers and more blacks in the ceremonial troops around Washington. Every President including Reagan has made it worse.

    Where has WND been for the last 50 years? The sun rises every morning and sets every evening. Wow! how insightful!

    “Most of the whites who voted for barry never bothered to investigate who he was nor his agenda.”

    It is not the fault of White voters who never bothered to investigate Obama. They were lied to for years by the media.

    Obama was carefully selected and trained from an early age.

    He was purposely brought to Chicago. His non profit community crusader jobs, election to state assembly and senate were carefully arranged by his handlers. Even his marriage was arranged. Michelle’s father never held office, but he was a very powerful operator in the Democratic party structure.

    Obama is like an talentless actor who is spotted and brought along by a smart agent and producers.

    Washington was a platonist. Platonists believe that there is a natural aristocracy that will rise naturally to rule the lumpen proletariat. He did not like the rise of political parties and factions.

    Here is what he said about them and the newspapers that supported one or another party. “if this goes on soon a party will put a coat and breeches on a broom stick and elect him to office”

    That is what Obama is. If anyone, blame the media rather than his agents, stylists, script writers and other handlers. The media fell for it. The media has enormous sources for investigation. They investigate every Republican candidate and their associates and relatives back to first grade.

    But the media just reprinted the press releases given to them by Ayers, Dohrn, and the rest of the liberals who are destroying America.

    Progressive insurance. Please boycott Progressive. It is owned by Peter Lewis, Monica Lewinsky’s step father who arranged for that WH internship job. He is a major donor to anti White liberal causes and all the organizations that put their puppet Obama in office.

    What do ya want to bet that a large % of these White government workers now in fear of their jobs just love “diversity” and gleefully voted for “hope and change” Barry.

    I worked for the Post Office in a big city and I was always alone when a “discussion” of race came up. Not one White would back me up, they either kept quiet or would take THEIR side – ALWAYS! When a black empioyee would have a birthday, the Whites would fall all over themselves to throw them a little party in the break room – for my b-day, nothing. When a black would retire or transfer to another station, a party with gifts – for me, nothing. And a large % of these blacks that were getting these ‘White parties’ were very openly racist! I used to call them “thugs in Postal uniforms”. Even though the P.O. had a “zero tolerance” policy, I was verbally threated on several occations and had my truck keyed in the employee parking lot – twice – and nothing was ever done by the black or White managment. If I had a dollar for every time I saw a cake being carried in by some liberal White woman that had Happy B-day Demonte, Laqueesha, Jamal, Darsell, Deshawn, Ebony, Darnell etc., I could’ve retired acouple years earlier. I could write a book on all the sickening pandering I witnessed almost on a daily basis. Biggest bunch of phoney, naive, diversity loving #$% kissers you’d ever want to meet. I acually think that those Whites at the P.O. led me to my “racial awakening” more so than the blacks did. The double standard was glaringly obvious with them.

    Thankfully, I’m now retired in a nice small White rural area far far away from that madness and no longer need my blood presser medicine.

    P.S. to any of you who have a “friendly” black letter carrier – they may smile in your face at your home, but back at the station most of them hate you to the core and laugh amongst themselves at how they “play” you!

    STOP IT! Stop that paranoid rant. You lost it with “the gulags.”

    Whites (non- liberal, that is) are far too smart, combat- ready- or adaptable, proud, keen, aware and capable to go to ‘gulags. ‘ Anglo- Saxons have a DNA- deep tradition that defies such a fate. Even if Russians gave in…theirs was a VASTLY different history.

    Anybody who is brazenly foolish enough to try and murder or enslave the strong whites would die hard and fast. They would literally drown in a sea of their own stupidity. They can’t tie their shoes.

    Stop the ranting. I understand what brought you to this: knowledge of the horrible truth that most whites want to just ignore.

    But if only ten percent of us come up swinging, we will destroy anything that dares to harm us. NEVER doubt it.

    I know this, in my bones. If I’m 85 when it happens, I will NEVER let any third worlder take me. They can never succeed. And no Liberal Limp white marxist is capable of violence. They are lower than worms.

    Remember. The leftists are incapable of physical force. Just think of who and what they are.

    And the browns are too stupid (and cowardly) to carry out an offensive against even a statistically TINY group of organized whites. I have no doubt.

    You just buck up, mister, and stop all that defeatist talk, because it breeds defeat. If we were in a foxhole, you’d get slapped.

    EXACTLY! I know how you feel! I rarely ever see a White postal worker any longer. I also worked for a government agency. Pandering to blacks and hispanics was a daily occurrence. The White morons who worked there were so brain dead when it came to race, they thought these blacks/browns were really their “friends”. They were all laughed at behind their backs by their so-called “friends”.

    It is very easy to put your life on the line when your 85 but most people have a family they are responsible for. When the white cops come for them, they will not put up much of a fight. Not as long, they have that suv and that ranch home and kids to care for.

    And yes, I said white cops. That is the most cowardly group ever. They have the truth shoved in their face everyday but they bend over backwards to appease the traitors.

    Buchanan’s what 65, 70? In all those decades in DC he never noticed that discrimination against Whites in employment and college admissions and the military and everywhere started back in 1965 when he was probably in college?

    I just can’t stand these conservatives who pontificate in such a breathless, shocked way about things like racial discrimination against Whites or black on White crime when everyone knows these things have been going on for 70 years.

    Paging Mr. Obvious

    Buchanan’s still one of those maudlin snivelling patriots like Glenn Beck isn’t he? I loathe those people. I am a proud extreme White nationalist. I am not a patriot. I could care less about abortion and gay issues. I truly loathe conservatives.

    “My question is: will the Kennedys, Bushes, etc. really escape the horror or is that reserved soley for the average white?”

    NO!!, they will not escape what is coming. Like kidnappers, WHY bother kidnapping poor people, if you want to loot, don’t go to the ghetto, go to the homes of the rich! I suspect most White Americans are armed by now, and the Obamuslim and his cronies know that, so they must immediatly make moves to remove those arms from us. This will be effective initially until the rest of us wake up at which time the police forces are gonna have to make a choice and it will be a difficult one for many, not so difficult for others.

  • Fighting affirmative action since 1972 and lost

    THE MAN

    There have been thousands of anti affirmative action lawsuits since 1968. Most lost in the courts because the Judges ruled in favor of affirmative action. The anti affirmative action rulings were never enforced.

    The anti affirmative state wide California initiative, Prop 209 was actually upheld by both state and federal courts in august 1998. BUT AND THIS IS A BIG BUT there is no enforcement built into Prop 209. There never was. Prop 209 has never, never been enforced. There are fewer Whites in California state and local goverment and quasi goverment such as schools including all the state colleges and universties and hospitals than in 1998 when Prop 209 was upheld by the courts.

    There have been several other anti affirmative action initiatives. I believe each has one. None have any enforcement procedures built in so they can never be enforced even if the courts uphold them.

    Since 1968 numerous police, fire and other White goverment employees filed law suit after law suit. They always lost.

    In the early 1980’s when it became clear that the quota system was turning into a no Whites need apply system White federal goverment emplyees formed a White federal employees pressure group. The feds cracked down hard.

    The Whites took it to court pointing out that the federal goverment allowed all sorts of other pressure groups such as blacks, hispanics, asians, gays, labrordor dog loving redheaded lesbians, handicapped blacks, handicapped hispanics, latin hispanics, chicano (indian) hispanics) on and on a pressure group for every group but Whites.

    The Judge shot the White group down.

    WND is absolutely ridicilous. Where have they been since 1968? Many WND writers and researchers were not even born then, but surely they can do a little research.

    And for all you amremers who are so surprised and shocked where have you been all your lives?

    Never been to a post office or social security office? Never been to a VA hospital or military base? Ever driven past a VA hospital or military base? Anyone work downtown near a big federal building and seen every race on earth but blacks walking in and out at 8/am and 5/pm.

    Ever gone to a federal building for a passport or IRS forms? Ever called the IRS or other federal phones and spoke with some grunting black woman (the only people who they have on the hotlines) who either wouldn’t or couldn’t give you the information?

    I live a block away from the parking lot entrance to one of the big VA hospitals. Every morning from about 6/30 to 8/30 and every evening from about 3/30 to 6/00 pm my block is bumper to bumper traffic with VA employees coming and going to and from work.

    They are about 90 percent black. The rest are hispanics and asains. VA Drs still wear those long White coats with the VA badge on the arm and their name and MD embroidered on the chest pocket. They do errands and eat lunch all over the neighborhood. Every one I have seen is either an Indian, Indian, not hispanic indian male or asian woman.

    If a man from Mars looked out my window just one morning he would not fail to notice that that enormous federal institution employees virtually non Whites.

    So why are all you race realist White nationalist amremers so totally shocked that Obama is doing what the last 8 White presidents have done?

    Whether you were born in 1940 and lived through the beginnings of affirmative action or were born in 1990 and still in college all you shocked amremers must have deaf and blind all these years to not notice how affirmative action went for quota to total exclusion of Whites in 10 years.

    Whites should have started fighting, I mean really fighting in 1968. But we didn’t, mainly because the only effective way for us to fight back would have been illegal. The anti White liberals controlled the courts and the federal goverment by 1960.

    So there was nothing legal we could have done all those years.

    Go ahead and raise millions of dollars and hire the best attorneys and spend the next 8 years in court. There is an 80 percent chance the courts will rule against you. If you should win, any pro White ruling will never be enforced.

    And before you call me a pessimist, do a little research on affirmative action and diversity.

    Chris Matthews is on right now. His entire program is that Whites who do not support Obama in the next election are racist.

    In the 2008 election Matthews says only 43 percent of Whites voted for Obama. That is in and of itself that Whites are racist. Whites should have voted 100 percent for Obama to prover they are not racist.
