Last Friday, President Biden signed an Executive Order “to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in the Federal workforce.” Characteristically, the summary Fact Sheet contains language designed to camouflage, rather than illuminate, the purpose of the order. Here is my translation from the Woke.
WH Fact Sheet: “The initiative will advance opportunity for communities that have historically faced employment discrimination and professional barriers, including: people of color; women; first-generation professionals and immigrants; individuals with disabilities; LGBTQ+ individuals; Americans who live in rural areas; older Americans who face age discrimination when seeking employment; parents and caregivers who face employment barriers; people of faith who require religious accommodations at work; individuals who were formerly incarcerated; and veterans and military spouses.”
Translation: The Biden Administration stereotypes certain groups as victims and will give them first dibs on federal jobs. Preferred victim groups include: people with darker skin (except Candace Owens and Clarence Thomas); women (unless you want to protect babies in the womb); immigrants (as long as you don’t believe in hard work and meritocracy); people with disabilities (subjective psychological disorders preferred); people who flaunt sexual practices forbidden by traditional religion; rural Americans (except for Trump voters); leftist Boomers; moms who have been forced into the workplace and told to like it; adherents of any religion except Christianity; criminals; and the military (again, except for Trump voters).
WH Fact Sheet: “Directs agencies to seek opportunities to establish or elevate Chief Diversity Officers within their organizations.”
Translation: Are you fluent in woke propaganda, and nothing else? Uncle Sam wants you to lead an entire government department! Apply today!
WH Fact Sheet: Today’s Executive Order builds on that by directing all Federal agencies to expand the availability of DEIA trainings for their workforce, so that Federal employees are supported in building skillsets to promote respectful and inclusive workplaces and have increased understanding of implicit and unconscious bias.
Translation: Critical Race Theory is back harder than ever, baby! The feds will spend even more of your tax dollars on racist struggle sessions.
WH Fact Sheet: The Executive Order directs key agencies to take steps to reduce the reliance on unpaid internships, fellowships, and apprenticeships to ensure that more Americans can take advantage of these opportunities.
Translation: So many victim groups, so few jobs. But that’s OK, the feds can just pay people for doing nothing! While they undergo race re-education, of course.
WH Fact Sheet: Many workers continue to face racial and gender pay gaps, and pay inequity disproportionately affects women of color. The Order directs the Office of Personnel Management to review Government-wide regulations and guidance that set pay and wage standards for public servants… [and] to consider taking steps to prohibit agencies from seeking or relying on an applicant’s salary history during the hiring process and compensation decisions, an important component of advancing pay equity.
Translation: We don’t care if people make different career choices, they should all be paid the same. Merit-based pay scales are so bourgeoise. In fact, you shouldn’t even be looking at free market indicators like prior salary history. Shame on you.
WH Fact Sheet: The Executive Order also directs a review of Schedule A Hiring Authority for individuals with disabilities to assess opportunities to enhance employment opportunities and financial security for employees with disabilities.
Translation: Disabilities give us all the sads. Don’t worry, Uncle Sam will rescue you. It’s not like your friends and family are going to do anything for you. After all, you’re disabled, remember? Just give us your self-respect and initiative. You didn’t need those anyway.
WH Fact Sheet: the Executive Order directs agencies to ensure that the Federal health benefits system equitably serves LGBTQ+ employees and their dependents by expanding access to comprehensive gender-affirming health care… The Order charges all agencies to ensure that the usage of gender markers and pronouns in the Federal employment process respects transgender, gender non-conforming and non-binary employees, and directs all agencies to take steps to expand access to gender-neutral facilities inside federal workplaces.
Translation: We will use your tax dollars to mutilate and remove perfectly good body parts belonging to federal employees. And punish federal employees who talk as if biological sex is real. Also, we need to see more men in women’s restrooms, immediately.
WH Fact Sheet: Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Minority Serving Institutions, and women’s colleges are engines of opportunity and innovation in our Nation.
Translation: Three cheers for segregation!
WH Fact Sheet: Individuals with prior convictions experience must be supported in accessing employment as they fully re-enter society. The Federal government has an important role to play in supporting formerly incarcerated individuals in fully reintegrating into society and making meaningful contributions to our country. The Executive Order directs the Office of Personnel Management to assess the barriers that formerly incarcerated individuals face when seeking Federal jobs. The Executive Order also tasks the Office of Personnel Management with considering creating new Hiring Authorities to expand job opportunities for individuals with past convictions.
Translation: If you are applying for a federal job, it helps to have criminal experience.
