In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his justly-famous “I Have a Dream Speech” from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in which he spoke the inspirational words, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Widely described as a defining moment in the Civil Rights movement, almost half a century later, America’s first (semi-) black president has re-defined that moment and has made a mockery of King’s speech and those words in the process.
Barack Hussein Obama capped off two and a half years of racially-applied justice, demonstrably black favoritism, and expressions of anti-white sentiments by issuing an executive order convolutely entitled, “Establishing a Coordinated Government-wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce.”
The stated purpose of the order is “to promote the federal workplace as a model of equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion.”
As Kermit the Frog is wont to moan, “It’s not easy being green.” It’s also not easy being white in Barack Hussein Obama’s America. The Washington Times clarified the White House directive in an editorial: “Whites need not apply” when it comes to employment with the nation’s largest employer. (http://bit.ly/qzYpGM)
The Times elaborated by pointing out that the ”diversity the government is seeking is not diversity of ideas, outlooks or work experiences. In contemporary political parlance, ‘diversity’ refers primarily to the color of one’s skin and not the content of one’s character” as evidenced by details in the executive order. It incorporates such language as, the federal government “must create a culture that encourages collaboration, flexibility and fairness to enable individuals to participate to their full potential.”
However, in a bald-faced effort to tilt the playing field, “the government will intensify programs that discriminate against white Americans by extending special privileges to everyone else.” Laughably, ”The order also says that ‘attaining a diverse, qualified workforce is one of the cornerstones of the merit-based civil service,’ ” while abandoning even the semblance of a fair meritocracy.
The executive order was issued in absentia by the president; he was busily conducting the nation’s business from afar in Martha’s Vineyard where he could escape some of the reaction and political brickbats. Nevertheless, it effectively negates the import and spirit of King’s 1963 speech as well as make the feds the nation’s prime agency of discrimination.
Our federal government–virtually the only employer hiring in D.C.–will now hire exclusively on the bases of “diversity and inclusion,” code for skin color, a factor King felt abhorrent. By presidential decree, their character content and qualifications be damned.
The government initiative is all the more startling, and ironic, in that it was announced during the same week a black congressional Democrat who holds office primarily because she is black went on an unholy rant against her (semi-) black, Democrat president.
A racial malcontent always discontented with one thing or another, Waters last week ripped into Obama’s constant bane in her always classy fashion when she blustered to a howlingly-appreciative, union audience, ”And as far as I’m concerned–the tea party can go straight to hell” but she saved her most scathing remarks for the man who wants to reserve government jobs for her minority constituents.
Obama might love diversity but she earlier pointed out in Detroit, “Our people are hurting” and Obama’s non-campaign, taxpayer-funded entourage with its two Canadian-built buses failed to stop in any Midwest, African-American communities!
Poor, Mad Max.
She’s so fixated on re-election and racial agitation that she just can’t comprehend that non-African-Americans are also hurting and that The Anointed One saw no practical need to stop by black neighborhoods since he knows their votes are in his pocket no matter where he stops or what he says.
Maybe, too, Rep. Waters, has other, more pressing issues on her mind than tea partiers and bus stops.
Michelle Malkin has aptly termed Waters, “the swamp queen” due to her deep immersion in the congressional swamp Nancy Pelosi sought to drain and which only became much swampier during her reign as Speaker: Waters and her family are under a (stalled) House Ethics investigation for glomming millions from the same government Maxine also ostensibly serves.

Martin Luther King’s bit about his kids and skin color and content of character may be passe’, null and void in Obama’s Washington but it’s a certainty that white racists are still on the march, at least in the collective mind of this administration.
Maybe all this folderol concerning government discrimination against white people is just more racist tripe? And maybe Rep. Maxine Waters is as ethically pure as a wind-driven, Washington blizzard? And perhaps, just perhaps, Obama isn’t engaged in getting even with nasty whites for whom he admitted a “pervasive animosity” and Maxine isn’t a corrupt politician being persecuted by those white devils?
And maybe the D.C. sky isn’t blue?
