Diversity Thursday

Throughout the greater Tidewater area, Sailors are scrambling to swap out duty schedules, routing leave chits, and otherwise trying to schedule mission critical training events, PQS sessions, and badly needed PCS all on the 27th?

Why? Well good googly moogly man - the Diversity Industry is coming to town to create on of Dante's levels of h311 right here.

When I say "Diversity Industry" - well there is one of the poster children; Samuel Betances.

Yep - him again, and again, and again.

He is a racialist to the core who makes his money through a myopic, regressive, and backward looking concept on race, creed, color, and national origin. Extremely stuck in 1970s era racial theory mixed in with parts patronizing accusation, insult, insecurity, personal grievance, and a pinch Phil Donohue thrown in for extra grit.

Enjoy it taxpayer, you're paying for it in five-figures just for his speaking fee.




The Navy needs just one thing ...

Sal, not American but have lived there. All this shit is a baby boomer construct. I have gay friends, I call them gay. I have black friends, they're black.

We're over it, do your job, do it well and I couldn't give a fat rats arse how much melatonin you have nor who you go home to of an evening. Who cares?

Enforce EO, recruit from all over the US.  If you want to spend a bit more resources to recruit from my old hood, or the barrios, fine.  Statistically, it will be more difficult to pull recruits of high quality from these areas, so you'll need more time and money.  Racist?  Yeah, ok.  I talked to a YN1 who was amazed I was from her old recruiting district.  An MA1 that was her friend stopped me and said, "Good job getting out of there."  YN1 said that she would sign someone and then find out he had a felony conviction.  So, racist or no, the stats say it will take more effort to get good quality recruits.  Now, once they are in, treat us ALL as sailors.  Don't eff around with the money and resources to point out our differences, but treat us equally.  Give us a mission to be proud of, then train and equip us to do it, following on with the latitude for the on-site commanders to do it w/o the 3000 km screwdriver twisting.  THAT will take care of your diversity and recruiting.  And, realizing that some members of Congress want us to bend to the diversity silliness, tell them to rewrite the laws and get rid of EO and run it past the Supreme Court.  We took an oath to support and defend the Constitution, so let's force our civilian counterparts to follow their governing document.

LT B, why should the Navy spend extra money to recruit in areas it knows are less likely to yield acceptable personnel? In case you haven't noticed, America is broke. Shouldn't the Navy focus on more fiscally sane uses of its limited funds, like -- and I'm just spitballing here -- having at least 300 ships?

Sim said...

If someone wants to point out the fact my background of Irish and Scottish means it's more likely to snow in the Sahara than me getting a tan who do I complain to again?

Surfcaster said...

Would be cheaper and more instructive (and a helluva lot more humerous) to watch prerecorded episodes of Calos Mencia.  Yawn.

My reply to the Diversity Crapola will be to offer a study in Leadership that is really more purposeful than these idiots...

I will start with personalities:

Col Harry Albert Flint.

AAA-O  talk amongst yourselves...

DeltaBravo said...

You made me go educate myself.  What a leader!  Set the standard and those around you will work to live up to it  (or down to it... your pick...)   But he did lead from the front.  I'm still waiting for all the Diversity Demagogues to lead from the front and attrition themselves into GOFO ratios that "look like America."

Hey, this guy is a "twofer" checking both the black and Hispanic boxes.  What a racket he has perpetuating his twisted mythical view of society, at great expense to taxpayers.

If the Navy really needs motivataional speakers to talk about success of minorities then there are plenty of other good choices with real world relevant experience. 

Let's see if Representative Allen West (LTC, USA (ret)) could fit in a day to speak to Navy types.
Former Representative, J.C. Watts is an excellent motivational speaker. 
Former SecCtate/CJCS Colin Powell is a motivtional speaker could be much more useful and relevant than some career grievance monger who has never worn the uniform.
Need gender diversity, but still want a "twofer?"  SecState Condi RIce certainly inspires a lot of people and is an outstanding success story.

Need Hispanics? Maybe Senator Marco Rubio would say a few inspiring words about rising from the barrio to leadership.

If economic hardship counts for anything, then Gov. Rick Perry, USAF vet and son of a dirt poor tenant farmer has a remarkable story which can be examplary for others.

There are many retired minority FOGOs and MCPONs and the USMC top enlisted folks who have the background, experience, and subject matter expertise to inspire military members (and side-scuttling beach creatures) to better performance.

But, no, the incestuous Diverstiy Industry has to get some irrelevant, high paid perpetual victim to come in and fan the flames of hatred so that they will be sure to have a job forever.

Anyone who attends this instead of doing "real work" that day is a coward, or a butt kissing idiot.  And those who arranged all this crapola should be ashamed of themselves, but only after being fired, and their billets eliminated instantly.

Thank you, Phib, for continuing to shine the spotlight on the cesspool that is the diversity industry and its corrosive effects on our Navy.  (And nation!)

Interesting.  An anonymous post shows up on my phone, but not on the web version.  I have seen that w/ comments I've made via my droid.  He/She asked why spend the money on  recruitment on areas where we may get a lower quality sailor.  Valid question, but they have Congress-critters too.  Their representation dictates it via the purse strings.  Race is a weird beast anyway.  Think about it, the left complains that the minorities are cannon fodder (they aren't), then they complain we are not working hard enough to bring in the right colored troops.  It is a crazy as my ex, they just need something to complain about.  But the anonymous not posted poster brings up a point we've talked about.  Look at the recruiting stations and success rates.  They send more worker bees down south vice to the NE as the Americans from the southern regions tend to be a bit more patriotic, interested in military service, etc.  But racial politics and control of the purse strings help shape this arguement.  I wish we could just distribute stations relatively evenly (choose the metric of choice) and pull in motivated and skilled troops.  No color or gender "goals" necessary, just the DREAM of bringing in troops on the content of their character (and skill sets), not the color of their skin (or internal plumbing).

I was a two-fer when I met the super model looking nympo that had a thing for Jewish Cowboys.  I told her I was Tex Goldstein.  ;)

That joke is older than CVN-65......

Byron said...

Huh...saw that last Wednesday night at Hooters and as soon as the girls got their picture they left your ugly sailor butt high and dry :)  Sorry about that, Tex 8-)

MR T's Haircut said...

Sactly@

LT B said...

Yes, but simple enough a Marine can understand it!  ;)

LT B said...

BTW, I'm STILL awaiting metrics on this whole diversity makes a better navy, vice working as a team.  Because the diversi-Nazis tend to divide us, not bring us together.  Metrics, metrics, metrics please. 

Oh yeah, due to my training in the scientific method, please define the control group, methods, etc.  I know the hypothesis is that dividing brings us together.

LT B said...

If you also recall, old ship fitter, the girls came back and asked me to take another picture with them. 

MCPO Airdale said...

What happened to the days when we treated all Sailors as, "Blue"?

Bistro said...

zut alors!

I am shocked, shocked that racialism is ongoing here.

Stu said...

If the CNO is reading this...

Can you please be the one who puts an end to this racialist shit?  Can we focus on warfighting again?  Can we focus on simply promting excellence in all we do?  I'm at the end of the my Navy career and I am a 5th generation legacy who tells his four boys that the Navy is no place for them.   

James said...

Because remember far from being about putting the best people in the right place the Military and especialy the Navy is about putting people with mutually hostility and dislike/distrust of eachother and promoting one group over the other. This creates harmoney....

Cap'n Bill said...

I read ADmiral Hrvey's blog from time to time. He writes and "talks" like a straight-shooter.
Have any of you locals considered passing this chain if views on to him.  God Knows that even Admirals must learn new tricks sometime.

Grandpa Bluewater said...

We assume he reads (this and several  other blogs) for himself,  and writes what he wants to be read.

He writes and speaks well, and his actions speak clearly, at least those that are public knowledge.  I, for one, assume he is plenty smart enough to figure out what needs doing for himself.

What he can do about it, in his position, depend on his initiative and ability, and his higher and higher than higher.

As Yukon King said to Sgt  Preston, RNWMP: "If you aren't the lead dog, the view doesn't change much; and if you are, you are left out in the cold more than you like."

Byron said...

Nah, left before you got embarrased and started crying :)

Largebill said...

The failure of Navy leadership to put an end to this nonsense can sadly only be attributed to cowardice.

Largebill said...

Okay, I guess I was being a little harsh saying they could only be cowards. Some may not be cowards but just really stupid. My apologies to any brave idiots who I mistakenly maligned as cowards.
