Cultural Infection Spreads to USDA

The cultural infection of political correctness has spread to another government agency. This time it's the United States Department of Agriculture.

In an era when common sense in government has become an endangered species and you think you've seen and heard it all, you discover you haven't.

Let me tell you about what the USDA employees were required to chant about the Pilgrims---yes, those pilgrims, and how much it cost you the taxpayer.

I also want to announce that there is a cure for this infection.

But first ...
We begin on the radio today at 9:A.M. We will be on live every week day morning at 9AM. For more information on the station listings and a link to the mobile app, click here. You will note that you can also listen live on your computer.

So, why is the USDA putting so much emphasis on "sensitivity training?"

Cultural Sensitivity trainer, Samuel Betances, a self described "citizen of the world," has been paid $200,000 to conduct a workshop in which USDA employees were made to chant, "The Pilgrims were illegal aliens," among other things.

Judicial Watch discovered all this and made it public last week. Apparently this "sensitivity" training has been going on for some time.

Your thought is probably much like mine, what is the federal government thinking to pay someone $200,000 of taxpayer money to lead the USDA employees to chant that the Pilgrims were illegal aliens?

USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack somewhat explained the purpose in a memo he issued a while back.

He told the USDA employees that we are now in a "new era of Civil Rights" and a "broader effort towards cultural transformation at the USDA."

Got it.

Government is transforming the culture through the spread of political correctness.

Yesterday, Rasmussen published a survey that found that only 11% of people believe Congress is a good reflection of Americans views.

If our elected representatives don't reflect the views of the people who elected them, how much more does government not reflect our views and values.

An injection of common sense is the beginning of the cure for political correctness. And it begins at the ballot box...No, it begins now in preparation for the ballot box.
