  • The DEI industry really isn’t about diversity, equity OR inclusion

    Most Americans are all for diversity, equity and inclusion. But Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programs have proved to be about nothing but rank racism. So Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was pretty on-point last week, in the run-up to announcing his presidential bid, when he defunded DEI programs at public colleges and universities across the Sunshine State, joining Republican legislatures and govs from Ohio to Texas. Just look at how corrosively toxic DEI efforts prove in practice: Faculty at the University of California/San Francisco’s medical school recently produced a journal article endorsing racial segregation in education as “part of a broader...

    "Diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) divides rather than unites our military and society. DEI’s principles derive from critical race theory, which is rooted in cultural Marxism, where people are grouped into identity classes (typically by race), labeled as “oppressed” or “oppressors,” and pitted against each other. ... We respectfully request that Congress, pursuant to its constitutional powers “… to raise and support Armies …” and “… to provide and maintain a Navy …,” take legislative action to remove all diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs from the Department of Defense (DoD). Additionally, we ask that you ensure that no DEI...
  • Elon Musk Hires Ultra Woke Linda Yaccarino as CEO of Twitter – Former Head of NBCUniversal Advertising – WEF Board Member – Pioneer of DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) Wokeism

    Elon Musk has reportedly hired Linda Yaccarino as the CEO of Twitter. Unfortunately, this decision is the exact opposite of what everyone hoped about Musk’s intentions with the platform. Ms. Yaccarino is the head of NBCUniversal Advertising and Partnerships [Example Here], and she is the tip of the spear in the creation of DEI (Diversity Equity and Inclusion) indexing and corporate scoring. You might be familiar with ‘DEI’ as a result of the Bud Light woke advertising campaign to promote beer for transgenders. Well, that’s DEI in action, and Ms. Yaccarino is one of the pioneers in the advertising industry....

    ANALYSIS: Paper latest example of how woke U. Minnesota academics pass off political views as scholarly work A paper on “diversity, equity and inclusion” in health services departments has been retracted for misrepresenting the “authenticity of experiences” cited. But the paper is just the latest example of how woke University of Minnesota academics pass off their political views as scholarly work. “Transactional and transformative diversity, equity, and inclusion activities in health services research departments,” first published on Jan. 8 in Wiley Online Library and then in March in Health Services Research, contained problems acknowledged by the authors. One of the...

    officials The final suspect wanted in a string of nearly 20 roofie robbings at nightclubs across the city — which led to two deaths — has been arrested, police sources said Tuesday. Jayqwan Hamilton, the alleged ringleader of the crew, is expected to face felony murder charges as well as multiple counts of grand larceny, robbery and conspiracy in connection to 17 drugging incidents in the Big Apple between September 2021 and August 2022. The alleged nefarious scheme to drug and rob their victims caused the deaths of two Hells Kitchen clubgoers, John Umberger, 33, and Julio Ramirez, 25, last...

    When George Floyd was murdered, many Americans wanted to do something. Some protested; others pushed to defund the police. The business community, looking to do its part (and receive favorable media attention), went on a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) hiring spree, bringing on highly-paid executives – mostly racial minorities – to create programs to make their workplaces more attractive for minorities. But then the economy began to slow. Want to guess what happened next? According to a recent report from HR consulting firm Revelio Labs, DEI executives were terminated at a much higher rate than all other executives in...

    The medical school at the University of Buffalo earned high marks for its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion from the Association of American Medical Colleges and has incorporated aspects of critical race theory into its curriculum. The University of Buffalo's Jacobs School of Medicine's responses to the AAMC's diversity, inclusion, culture, and equity survey were obtained by the medical watchdog group Do No Harm ... The replies to the survey show the school achieved a score of 90%, indicating "substantial diversity, inclusion, culture, and equity efforts." The medical school affirmed that it ensured a "diverse" student body by implementing...

    New York Post ^ | April 3, 2023 | Glenn H. Reynolds
    The Department of Justice is investigating Big Tech companies for antitrust violations, and it’s basically a case of DOJ vs. DOJ. That’s because in preparation for just this sort of thing, firms have lawyered up — with hundreds of attorneys hired away from DOJ. Big Tech companies — Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and HP — have hired at least 360 lawyers from the Department of Justice since 2011, found government watchdog American Accountability Foundation. That’s 30 dozen lawyers. ... Heck, even judges do it, like Michael Luttig, a federal appeals judge who left the bench to work for Boeing....

    Just in case you’re not celebrating diversity enthusiastically enough yet, here is more reason to start waving those diversity pom-poms: a new bill in Massachusetts would give Muslims privileged status. Here we see it yet again: “diversity, equity and inclusion” efforts are inherently and in always and every case a gateway to the preferential treatment of the Left’s favored groups. “Islam must dominate, and not be dominated,” said Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood ... In line with the fact that Islamic texts and teachings frequently exhort Muslims to subjugate Infidels (who must be made to “pay the...

    I recently wrote how public educators and unions were methodically killing public education. The best example this week comes from New York where a school board committee has solved the dismal math and reading scores for children in the system . . . they lowered the standards. This is not the first system to gut its standards rather than improve its quality of education. As teachers and unions object to school choice, they continue to make the case for private education. Parents are increasingly voting with their feet. The board is simply calling the lack of proficiency “the new normal”...
  • Former 'woke' Latina mom pulls her 13-year-old daughter out of Texas school after she was asked to play 'seducing hooker' game with fellow middle-schoolers as part of 'team building' exercise

    A mother from Texas who describes herself as a former 'woke' liberal pulled her 13-year-old daughter out of school after she found out she had been asked to play the role of a 'seducing hooker' in a game in her seventh-grade classroom. Laura Maria Gruber, 45, had sent her daughter to KIPP Poder Academy in San Antonio. The school's website claims to celebrate 'diversity, equity, and inclusion.' Gruber pulled her teenage daughter out of the school after she found out her teacher got students in her classroom to play a game known as 'Bear-Hooker-Hunter' - a kind of adult version...

    Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | March 11, 2023 | Micaela Burrow
    The U.S. Army’s new brand and ad campaign largely omits reference to woke identity politics and could be just what the service needs to overcome historic recruiting obstacles, experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Prior advertising efforts alienated conservative families that once served as the Army’s primary recruiting base, according to experts. They “forgot that the primary market for Army recruiting is young men from traditional families, looking for a challenge,” Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, told the DCNF. The Army’s new branding campaign, unveiled Wednesday, shied away from social justice and diversity themes as...

    Silicon Valley Bank was closed by the FDIC due to the bank losing over 60% of its value after the company disclosed major losses from security sales. Many political pundits and investors have called for lawmakers to bailout out the failed bank. Those advocating for bailouts have shied away from telling the public that SVB employees and affiliates voted in the leaders responsible for the current economic crisis. Open Secret’s data reveals in the 2020 election cycle Silicon Valley Bank employees and affiliates donated over $188,000 dollars to political candidates. Over 90% of the donations which amounted to $173,434 went...

    In backrooms and dark corners, airline lobbyists, particularly the Regional Airline Association, are scurrying all over Washington, still trying to undo all the hard work that has been done to make air travel the safest form of transportation in human history. They’re doing this for the usual reasons. They want to try to cheapen pilot training and levels of experience for their own financial gain and expedience. They’re trying to do what is easier and cheaper for them, not what is best for passengers or crews, or for their industry. Once again, it is necessary that those of us who...

    An Alabama fifth-grade girls' basketball team have been denied their championship trophy after being forced to join a boys' league - and then beating all their opponents. Spain Park girls' team, from Hoover, Alabama, were reportedly told at the start of the season that they would not be able to train at the local gym facilities unless they joined the boys' league. In response, they did exactly that and went on to win the championship - only to be told that the trophy would instead be handed to the runners-up that they'd just beaten in the final.

    Susan Rice, of Benghazi shame, has allegedly remained under the media radar for the past two years. But Biden, via executive order, has now given Rice the power to enact a "racial equity" makeover of the federal government. In good communist fashion, there will be "Agency Equity Teams" established in a myriad of federal government agencies. When Obama promised to transform America, he truly meant it. Now Biden's embrace of equity will result in the abandonment of the essential American quest for equality. .... In true leftist tradition, the genuine ideals of America are being discarded in the trash bin....

    If you are a parent, you grew up in a “benighted” period when people were assessed and given opportunities on the basis of merit consisting of achievements such as grades, test scores, prizes, etc. That archaic period is now over. People today are assessed according to their race, gender, sexual preferences, disabilities, and minority status. Children of the wrong race, gender, and sexual preference are now often excluded, not admitted to university, not funded, hired, appointed or otherwise benefitted. In the past, minorities—blacks, indigenous natives, Hispanics, Asians, Jews—were discriminated against. Today, it is the majority that is discriminated against, as...

    Diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI, has become a driving force in hiring practices across America. It’s replacing equal employment opportunity, EEO, in today’s discussions when new employees are recruited. Within major corporations, universities, and elsewhere, executives specializing in DEI have become common. As these entities upgrade to the more fashionable DEI officers, EEO managers will become obsolete. Why? They serve the same purpose, right? Wrong! In fact, it’s not even close. When America’s woke progressives successfully snookered the nation into accepting equity (the impractical pursuits of equal outcomes) as a replacement for equality (equal opportunity) the ballgame changed, majorly....

    SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio man who said a hospital failed to sedate him during an outpatient procedure last fall went as far as to get an independent drug screening to prove the powerful drugs were not in his system. “When I never had that moment where I either felt loopy or had any time loss, or anything like that, it was clear to me that that had not been done,” said Ian Chase, describing his visit to University Health’s Robert B. Green Campus on Sept. 27.
