Exposing Biden’s Radical Government-Wide “Equity” Plans

Equity

AMAC Exclusive – By B.C. Brutus

Earlier this year, President Joe Biden signed another “racial equity” executive order mandating that every federal agency create a so-called “equity action plan” to “remove barriers for underserved communities.” Despite the benign-sounding language, however, the resulting “action plans” have made clear once again that the left’s “equity” agenda is antithetical to the principle of equality and effectively amounts to state-sponsored discrimination.

In short, “promoting equity” is the left’s euphemism for using government or institutional power to manufacture equal outcomes across so-called “underrepresented communities.” Rather than creating equality of opportunity and allowing individuals to achieve success on their own merit, the “equity” doctrine says that everything from jobs to government benefits must be distributed in order to ensure everyone achieves the same outcome.

If the concept sounds radical, that’s because it is – so radical, in fact, that even avowed “democratic-socialist” Senator Bernie Sanders voiced tacit opposition to it during an interview with liberal talk show host Bill Maher last month.

Nonetheless, the Biden administration has been obsessed with equity since day one. Just hours after taking office, President Biden issued an executive order on “advancing racial equity and support for underserved communities through the federal government.” The order specifically mandates, “The head of each agency, or designee,” must “within 6 months of the date of this order… deliver a report to the President describing the best practices” to advance equity.

In total, 92 agencies submitted such a report last year. While it went largely unnoticed by the media, the content of those reports was truly terrifying for Americans who believe that the government should not treat people differently based on race.

Take, for example, the IRS’s report, which was released in October 2021. The document makes reference to “taxation equity,” raising the alarming possibility that the IRS – which just received funding for 87,000 new agents thanks to the “Inflation Reduction Act” – may soon move to make a person’s race, gender, or sexual orientation a determining factor in tax collection and enforcement. Current law does not allow the government to use demographic data from other government agencies in enforcement actions, but there are indications that the Biden IRS may move to change that.

The Department of Transportation went a step further, promising to add “racial equity and barriers to opportunity as a consideration for awarding discretionary grants.” This plainly means that a grant applicant who is a person of color will be given preference over a white applicant purely because of their race. The Government Services Administration similarly pledged to “increase overall contract dollars awarded to underserved and disadvantaged communities.”

The State Department equity plan specifically says that the agency will “prioritize engagements with diplomatic partners and individuals from underrepresented and underserved communities worldwide.” In other words, the Department admits it is conducting diplomacy in accordance with the left’s equity agenda, rather than to advance the best interests of the United States – a fact that should perhaps be unsurprising given the Biden administration’s numerous foreign policy fiascos.

Amid mounting concerns about wokeness in the military driving down recruitment numbers, the Defense Department’s equity plan, released last April, emphasizes a “four-year strategic initiative” to promote equity “in the areas of recruitment and retention, promotion and development, and teaching and learning.”

As yet more evidence of the disastrous consequences of implementing “equity” ideology through government actions, the Biden Department of Education equity plan touts the agency’s complete gutting of Title IX. The changes not only force radical gender ideology on the American public by hijacking the education system, they also reverses hard-won victories for women and girls by destroying female-only spaces and sports.

Despite the path of destruction left in its wake, however, Biden was not content with just one equity executive order, and issued a second order on February 16 of this year. Although billions of taxpayer dollars had already been directed toward overhauling the entire federal bureaucracy in service of the left’s equity agenda, an effort that Biden describes as “embedding a focus on equity into the fabric of Federal policymaking,” the president insisted that it still was not enough.

“Members of underserved communities still confront significant barriers to realizing the full promise of our great Nation,” the order says. Therefore, Biden orders agencies to create an equity action plan every year – a burdensome mandate that will lead to more wasted time and money.

The new executive order also calls on every federal department to create an “agency equity team” that will “coordinate the implementation of equity initiatives and ensure that their respective agencies are delivering equitable outcomes for the American people.” In effect, these teams will act as “equity police” within government agencies, enforcing Biden’s equity mandate in order to advance the left’s mission of radical social transformation.

The sprawling federal bureaucracy was largely ineffective and inefficient long before Joe Biden took office. Now, government agencies aren’t just incompetent, they’re actively working to dismantle core American values like equality – leading to disastrous outcomes for the taxpayers who fund those agencies in the process.

This idea was tried in the 60’s and 70’s and was called “Minority Set Aside.” This meant that minority contractors were to receive a certain percentage of government contracts regardless of their bid, be it the highest or the lowest. What happened was that companies competing for gov’t jobs would hire minority people as figureheads in order to compete. And those real minority companies turned out shoddy work and when it came time to refurbish the jobs, much of their work would not pass electrical inspection. So regular companies could be the winning low bidder, only to lose the job to a minority company that submitted a higher bid. Nor fair? You bet! But that is our government in action.

Ok, which pilot would you rather have flying you to your destination on a commercial jet? A pilot who graduated in the lower half of his class and was a minority classification OR a highly qualified pilot who was at the top of his class, regardless of his race or gender? Same with a heart doctor, general contractor or auto mechanic. I don’t know about you but I want the BEST pilot flying me, regardless of their race or gender!

Until enough Legislators take a stand to reclaim their Constitutional authority to stop the Executive branch from creating laws and rules by fiat, Biden’s EO s will continue to oppress the American taxpayers with Woke agendas and ridiculous schemes to please the Democrat base! This must be stopped by the courts by State lawsuits!

The left in this country is communist without using the term. They have this 15-minute crap of everybody living within 15 minutes of work, shopping, and everything else. Once they get that, they will co to an internal passport restricting people to specific geographical areas and requiring official permission to travel elsewhere. There are two “seconds” that can prevent that, the second amendment and the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.

Racial equity means racism — racism against whites, especially conservative white males. The black population is only about 12% of the American population, but one would never know this from listening to the race hustlers in the Biden administration. Even if one looks at the top officials in the Biden administration — from appearances, one could easily have the mistaken belief that the population of blacks and queers has exploded. However, Biden’s top officials are not even close to being a cross sampling of the population as a whole. Racism and quotas based on preferred types of sexual practices have absolutely nothing to do with fairness and meritocracy. Biden is a cheap hate monger of the worst type. He talks about freedom and justice; however, his policies promote division, hate , and chaos. Placing people in positions of power, because they look or talk a certain way, while ignoring their actual job qualifications to do the job, is not only unconstitutional. It’s plain evil. Biden is purposely destroying our country, because he wants to please the Marxists who have taken over the far left Democrat Party.

Liberals/leftists/Marxists have bastardized the English language. The average person would think that “equity” is like “equality” but, of course it is just the opposite. Also, using “gender” which applies to nouns and adjectives instead of “sex” which anyone with eyes can define. “Democracy” means everyone MUST think alike; the way the Marxists believe!

This is what happens when we allow the government to grow more and more each year. The more the government grows the more the American taxpayer has to shell out for these ridiculous “equity” programs. If the government was really interested in creating equity they would provide competent public school systems which teach a classic education that provides our kids with the education that they need to secure good paying jobs when they graduate. We as taxpayers need to seriously look at ways to reduce the size of the government and get them out of our personal lives. We have too many duplicate agencies that waste taxpayer money. The government is supposed to be serving us, the citizens and not the other way around. All of these “equity” programs are discriminatory and only causes more divisiveness in the country.

Congress needs to repeal or amend whatever law gave US Presidents the ability to issue Executive Orders. My understanding is that they were to be used only in times of emergency. However, they have turned Presidents, Governors and Mayors into dictators, and are similar to Kings decrees of medieval times. They have no place in our Constitutional Republic where only Congress has the authority to make or rescind laws.

The USA is afraid of freedom and cannot handle the responsibility. Deep down most of us want to
be controlled so we don’t have to think in return for enough to stay alive. I daresay that
we really don’t want to vote. Instead we want to be told what to believe. Our soldiers
died for this ? In the end we will get what we deserve and at this point its not much.

Another act/order that promotes SOCIALISM!!! Equality and hard work made this country great. Just look how well socialist policies have worked in all the countries it’s practiced in; poverty, starvation, poor health care, and the worst of all SLAVERY. Forget about the 1st, 2nd, 4th, AMENDMENTS or any other FREEDOMS that anyone enjoys. Anyone who doesn’t believe in American history can look at what happens in any Third World Country or Nation. A prime example is the living conditions in Russia and how their citizens are living and treated. Only TRUTH CAN EXTINGUISH this outrageous act.

Equity, equality of outcome, can be approached with enough government coercion. However, equality of opportunity can never be approached. Does a five-foot, fat, klutz have the same opportunity of becoming a professional basketball center as does a seven-foot, agile, athlete? Does a dimwit have the same opportunity of becoming a doctor or engineer with a Ph.D. as does a genius? The answer to both questions is “no” although proponents of equality of opportunity would have to argue otherwise. For the klutz, their solution is more training though training will not overcome his genetically caused height disadvantage. For the dimwit, their solution is more education although education will not overcome his genetically caused low IQ.

e·qual·i·ty

the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities:
“an organization aiming to promote racial equality”

Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.

The Constitution does not mention “equity”, but the The purpose of the fourteenth amendment was to grant citizenship and equal civil and legal rights to African Americans and former slaves after the Civil War:

Fourteenth Amendment – Section 1
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. 

Joe Biden’s administration is contrary to equal protection of the law, required by the 14th Amendment! His, executive orders and their implementation by federal bureaucracies should be thrown out by the Supreme Court!

These executive orders sound like federal government sponsored quotas to me. How are these orders not a violation of the equal protection clause of the Constitution? Also, the Biden Administration and the rest of the democrats seem more obsessed with equality of outcomes than equality of opportunity. Where’s the fairness in that?
