Samuel Betances: Race Hustler on the Dole

February 25th, 2013 - 12:42 pm

Samuel Betances.

The Obama administration would have you believe trimming federal fat will cause a calamity.  Here’s a suggestion — stop giving federal money to Samuel Betances.

Betances is the top-shelf race hustler who receives your hard-earned tax dollars to go inside federal agencies in Washington, D.C., and teach government workers that America is a racist country.  Judicial Watch obtained records of one of his looney talks at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  It contained a  creepy call and response that would have made the Symbionese Liberation Army proud.

“I want you to say: ‘If we work for a federal agency.’ Say that. (Audience repeats.) ‘We have discriminated in the past.’ (Audience repeats.) Say: ‘Every federal agency’ (audience repeats) ‘has discriminated against African Americans’ (audience repeats), ‘Hispanics’ (audience repeats), ‘Native American Indians’ (audience repeats) ‘and other groups’ (audience repeats),” Betances preaches.

Kathleen Parker has the full sordid inventory at the Washington Post.

Here’s a bet — one year from today, Betances will still be on the government dole.  He will still be earning hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to provide “diversity training” to federal employees.  Never mind that this training is rancid, wrong, divisive, foul, and creepy, he will still be earning your money to teach it.

How is this possible?  One reason is the racialist left is louder than common-sense Americans tired of racial division.  The bureaucratic inertia cannot be overcome inside places like the USDA, DOJ, and Department of Everything Else in Washington.  See, diversity training is a priority inside the government, across all administrations.  And the only people selling the training, and all those buying the training inside the civil rights offices at each agency, probably see nothing wrong with Betances’ curriculum.

Doubt it?  Then get involved yourself and pick up your phone.  Call any federal agency’s civil rights office and talk to your civil servants about this story.  You’ll hear excuses why they can’t talk on the phone to you.  You’ll hear descriptions of their own program and how it works.  You’ll hear sweet nothings of emptiness.

One thing you will not hear is a single one of these people condemn the spew coming out of Betances’ mouth — because they believe it.

Betances is a small example of a widespread agenda.  It is a poisonous agenda that burns through millions of your tax dollars in training programs to ensure that the federal workforce is, at worst, exposed to Betances’ poison, and, at best, come to believe in it.

And it matters, because the more racial hostility and division that lurk in the minds of your federal employees, the more policies skew toward the aims of the racialists.  They move the narrative on your dime.

About that sequester?  Any chance we can increase civility in the dialog and give Dr. Betances’ his walking papers?  Don’t bet on it.

I am grossly offended that my tax dollars go to support an evil creature like Betance. At least I can turn Al Sharpton off.

Indoctrination of "correct" history. My own chant would be along the lines of "It's 2013." What's the point of this stupid seminar?

I intend to write a short science fiction story based on the transcripts. Title: "200 Minutes of Hate."

I've written Judicial Watch. If anyone knows where I can get a transcript, or, failing that, the most complete video, let me know.

The value of science fiction is that it has the power to strip away identity so that one is forced to look at the principle of a thing. Having done that, even a politically correct liberal will see this is wrong. When one has no dog in the hunt, bias is circumvented, and principle stares you right in the face.

The unfortunate flip side of that is that even a warning novel like Orwell's "1984" can have liberals rooting against Winston Smith because, frankly, Orwell's argument was too subtle for today's liberal, as one can blatantly see in these video excerpts.

The military has been drenched in this PC crap since the 70's. The next phase will include teaching everyone to be welcoming and supportive when women get assigned to infantry units, despite every instinct and experience.

Perhaps this fellow will take a trip to Chicago. I hear it's a toddlin' town of high calibre.

I can recall when being too fat, too short, too ugly, or too lazy and stupid was a reason for any person to be discriminated against. and, americans had homes and cars and college educations and jobs and could pay off their credit cards. accurate assessments makes people "unequal". oh. and civilizations, too. but never mind all that. the anti-merit brigade is marching on. marketed as anti-racist.

The vast majority of ALL public employee training and conferenceing is first a waste of time and money, and, second, a money laundry to funnel tax money to Democrats and their front groups. I've never met a trainer or presenter at any training or conference who could be convicted of being a Republican; the best you get are some that are vaguely neutral.

Back in 2000, shortly after I returned to the executive branch, my boss' boss called me in and said he was tired of being harassed by certain union reps and wanted me to write up the most objective appraisal of the rights and duties of an employer in dealing with union paid staff and stewards. I wrote up my best understanding and there was nothing at all ideological about it; I actually could have been far more agressive and remained on sound legal ground. I passed it up the chain and there was a big pow-wow over it in the commissioner's office including the two union-owned deputy commissioners and my immediate boss, a director. These Democrat fools decided they'd give a copy of the draft to the head of the most offensive union and see what he thought of it. Well, he didn't like it at all, but couldn't actually point out anything about it that violated the law or his contract; said it just didn't set the right tone for the relationship. But the troubles still remained so they turned to a time-honored Democrat way of dealing with things; they sentenced us to talking with our union adversaries about the problems with our relationship. They did this by flying 25 or 30 HR and LR types to Anchorage at $600 a pop, putting us in a hotel in ANC at $100 a pop, then bussing us along with a whole bunch of union reps and stewards 150 miles in mid-winter to a Princess Lodge near Kenai, AK. I don't know what that cost a night since it was normally closed in winter and we had had it to ourselves for the whole three or four day soire, during which we spent all day writing crap on butcher paper on the walls at the direction of two federal mediators from the Federal Mediation and Concilliation Service who couldn't say s**t if they'd had a mouth full of it. The whole thing produced a piece of paper styled the Kenai Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing or the "Kenai Accord", in which we promised to be nice to each other and none of us meant it. I estimate the total cost to the State and Federal governments to have been about a quarter of a million bucks, and that was only the beginning. We then applied to the FMCS for a federal grant to spread the knowlege and wisdom gained at our soire in Kenai throughout the State with joint supervisor and shop steward training. We got a half-million from the federal government and the State spent at least twice that much more in time, travel, and per diem expenses. We hired a former Superior Court judge, a Democrat of course, to be the facilitator and paid her handsomely as well. I'd estimate the whole thing cost the State and federal governments at least $2 million bucks in all. When I became director in early '03, the first thing I did was repudiate the Kenai Covenant and issue the memo that started it all. The memo is still up on the State of Alaska's Labor Relations website and remains State policy. I might have spent two hours writing it at $40-$50/hr. back in those days.

What a bunch of morons who occupy that city and who would tolerate such abuse - but they don't care, because they don't have to pay to be abused - they just have to tolerate it - and they sit there to keep their jobs - absolutely sickening.

$5000/hr per tag team of diversity 'trainers' or get sued again. Nice racket.

To understand his business model, you have to understand the logic of collective action. Betances does not have to convince most of the people. He has to convince 1% that they have an overwhelming interest.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Logic_of_Collective_Action

To overcome that flaw in human reasoning, we have to show people that fiscal death by a thousand cuts is just as bad as a jugular shot. We have to wean ourselves off our 1% fixes as well. Everyone takes a 3% hit so we don't all take a 40% hit.
