    NY Times ^ | 03-14-2019 | Adeel Hassan, Karen Zraick and Alan Blinder
    The Southern Poverty Law Center said Thursday that it had fired its co-founder and chief trial lawyer, Morris Dees, after nearly a half-century, during which he helped build the organization into a fearsome powerhouse that focused on hate crimes and with an endowment that approached half a billion dollars. The group’s president, Richard Cohen, did not give a specific reason for the dismissal of Mr. Dees, 82, on Wednesday. But Mr. Cohen said in a statement that as a civil-rights group, the S.P.L.C. was “committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and...

  • Racism at Department of Treasury

    Racism and illegal personnel practices rife at a U.S. Treasury unit. Recently had an email go out from one executive at a non-treasury regulatory body get sent out to another half dozen regulatory agencies laying out the case in detail about illegal personnel practices by a deputy director of the Office of Financial Research. Now employees are so desperate they're willing to risk careers in hope of attracting someone's attention who can help. Watch the video, forward it widely and get it in front of those who can investigate and put a stop to this cr@p. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nq5KgmJLOU

    Is there a more brain-dead concept than to empower the government to fight "income inequality"? What sane, normal, rational human being thinks that human talent, drive, interests and opportunity can -- or should -- result in equal outcomes? Despite my love of athletics, I knew in third grade that my friend, Keith, could run much faster than I could. For two years I played Little League ball, and I got better at it. But no matter how hard I tried or how many hours I spent, I could not hit, run or throw as well as my friend Benji. Later...

    If we think that everyone has equal opportunity in this country and should take responsibility for their actions, we are “unconsciously biased” and must be aggressively indoctrinated and our negative biases erased The media has lately jammed the air waves with its newest indoctrination tactic driven by various United Nations organizations, the “unconscious bias” and, more specifically the “invisible race bias,” and the “invisible gender bias.” Training workshops in “thought police” are taking place around the country and around the globe to “assist” people overcome such unconscious bias and “nudge” them in the right direction. Who would have thought that...

    Over a year ago, I posted a column here titled “Why Equal Opportunity Is Immoral And Wrong.” http://clashdaily.com/2014/02/equal-opportunity-immoral-wrong/ As I expected, my message sailed over some readers’ heads. Multiple commenters weighed in with the typical, programmed response: “Well, it’s bad to try to force equal outcomes — but guaranteeing equal opportunity is good and right, and what our system is about,” etc. Wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. I had tried to explain that if the doctrine of equal opportunity is really applied in principle, some third-party entity (government, of course) would by necessity always have to step in to...

    America’s Declaration of Independence enshrines the idea that all men are created equal. What it actually means is that everyone has the same rights to enjoy or suffer the consequences of their own decisions under the law, and to freely exist in whatever circumstances earned, given, or legally bequeathed to them. When debating topics like affirmative action, and the more in-vogue topic of “income inequality,” fair-minded and conscientious conservatives are always quick to add the caveat that while they are against socially-engineered mandates to force uniform equality of outcomes, they nonetheless will nobly fight for the supposed equal opportunity of...

    In response to a letter from a coalition of religious liberty advocates concerned about anti-Christian bias in Defense Department “equal opportunity” training materials, the Department of Defense says it is reviewing those materials and will decide this month whether to continue using “private organizations” as resources in developing them. The coalition specifically cited the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a group the military should stop relying upon as a source for equal opportunity training. […] The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, a member of the coalition, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the DOD seeking training...

    Last month, I received an invitation to testify before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission about affirmative action and diversity in U.S. companies. The testimony was scheduled for today, and I was asked to share my written statement to the commission beforehand, last Thursday, which I did. Late Friday afternoon I received a phone call from the commission, telling me that because of what I had to say, my invitation had been withdrawn by its chairman, Cari M. Dominguez. I urged the commission to reconsider this decision because it would put the commission in general and the chairman in particular in...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - A top Interior Ministry official said Wednesday the 173 malnourished prisoners found by U.S. forces included all Iraqi sects, playing down allegations of a campaign by Shiite-led security forces to suppress Sunni Arabs ahead of next month's election. The Shiite-led government sought to dampen Sunni outrage over revelations Tuesday by Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari that the detainees, some showing signs of torture, were found last weekend by U.S. troops at an Interior Ministry lockup in the capital. Most were believed to be Sunni Arabs, the leading group in the insurgency. But the deputy interior minister, Maj....

    WTNH, New Haven ^ | September 29, 2005 | AP
    (Hartford-AP, Sept. 29, 2005 6:02 AM) _ A state group that wants stricter immigration controls is calling for an investigation of whether McDonald's hires a high percentage of Hispanics. But state officials and immigration activists are questioning the study that the group is using to bolster its claim. Connecticut Citizens for Immigration Control yesterday released what co-founder Paul Streitz is calling a study of the ethnic makeup of the workforce at 152 McDonald's. He claims that workers at McDonalds in New Haven and Fairfield counties are nearly 100 percent Hispanic. He says that raises the possibility that equal opportunity laws...

But he has privately grown more frustrated, and now, sources close to Powell tell Time, he has a firm plan for his exit: he will step down at the end of President Bush’s current term. “He will have done a yeoman’s job of contributing over the four years,” says a close aide. “But that’s enough.” The aide says Powell’s view...

    "You better watch what you say, or they'll be calling you a radical…" — Supertramp's Logical Song In the past, women ruled the home, taking primary responsibility for raising the children. In that same past, men ruled the workplace. Every workplace. Without exception. Two distinct spheres, each ruled by one sex. Some seek a return of that past, wanting women completely out of the workforce. This is based upon the premise that these roles, women as caregivers and nothing else, and men as providers and nothing else, were best for society in the first place. That premise is infinitely...
