Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch released Thursday a confidential video of the mandatory “cultural sensitivity training” that employees of the U.S. Department of Agriculture were required to endure at taxpayer expense.
Judicial Watch reported it filed a Freedom of Information Act request last year for information on the training sessions after being contacted by a USDA whistleblower offended by the compulsory sessions.
According to Judicial Watch, the USDA paid $200,000 to Chicago diversity consultant and motivational speaker Dr. Samuel Betances to lead the trainings.
In what was clearly more of an attempt at brainwashing than training, Betances made these poor adults chant sentences after him and shout “BAM” after his statements.
In one segment from the video, Betances instructed USDA employees to repeat after him:
I want you to say that America was founded by outsiders – say that – who are today’s insiders, who are very nervous about today’s outsiders. I want you to say, ‘The pilgrims were illegal aliens.’ Say, ‘The pilgrims never gave their passports to the Indians.’
“By the way, I don’t like the word ‘minorities.’ How about ‘emerging majorities,’” Betances said in another excerpt.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton summed this “cultural sensitivity training” nonsense up perfectly:
This USDA diversity training video depicts out-of-control political correctness. Can someone please explain how any of this helps USDA employees to better serve the American taxpayer? This video further confirms that politically-correct diversity training programs are both offensive and a waste of taxpayer money. No wonder it took over half a year to obtain this video from the Obama administration.
