From the National Review…..
Republicans should be afraid….
In a push for so-called equity so shockingly far-reaching that, not so long ago, a woke diversity officer wouldn’t have attempted it at even the most progressive liberal-arts college, Biden is making the federal government a frank instrument of a racialized radicalism.
Issued late last week, Biden’s latest executive order will empower ideological shock troops to distort federal policy across the board.
Lest there be any mistake, Section 4 of the order is titled, “Embedding Equity into Government-wide Processes.” The administration’s policy, according to the order, is “to advance an ambitious, whole-of-government approach to racial equity and support for underserved communities.”
Biden already handed down Executive Order 13985, or Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government, on his first day in office, but this time he isn’t fooling around.
The new order, like so much of the Left’s projects in 21st-century America, is equally sinister and parodic.
The heads of federal departments and agencies are commanded to establish Agency Equity Teams within 30 days. This edict runs all the way from the most prestigious and powerful departments, such as Treasury and Defense, to NASA and the National Science Foundation.
The teams will “coordinate the implementation of equity initiatives and ensure that their respective agencies are delivering equitable outcomes for the American people” (although not all of them)….
One, if you think the federal government is too incompetent to carry out this project, think again. Anyone who is not on board the Oberlin College–style Jacobinism expressed in the order will be intimidated into staying silent and going along, or will simply leave for another job.
Two, it has to be a priority of every Republican running for president to begin tearing up this ideological infrastructure root and branch on Day One.
Three, and relatedly, it’d be nice if it was only the federal government promoting this poison, but DEI — and an associated gender ideology — is becoming the default setting in American life. The GOP will have to be committed to fighting it, to the extent possible, in all realms. The wishy-washiness of a Larry Hogan won’t do.
It’s bad enough that the federal government is a blundering behemoth, but if Joe Biden gets his way, Leviathan is about to become thoroughly and determinedly woke.
