State Department Plans Special Representative for Racial Equity and Justice

Beware the Biden Buzzwords

The State Department plans a new position that will be announced on June 17: The Special Representative for Racial Equity and Justice. The position comes from the government wide “Equity Action Plan” announced in April. But there are some serious issues that should require everyone to pay attention.

The position’s holder has not been named, but the Special Representative will have wide-reaching powers, since he or she will be responsible for “institutionaliz[ing] an enterprise-wide approach to integrating racial and ethnic equity.” The email names “advancing equity, addressing systemic racism, and strengthening democracy worldwide” as “national security imperatives and core tenets of President Biden’s foreign policy.”

Although the Special Representative will be responsible for “promoting systems of inclusion that mitigate bias, discrimination, and violence” and “fostering more inclusive societies,” previous U.S. government efforts to promote inclusion and equity have failed. The federal government spent nearly $800 million promoting gender equality in Afghanistan, a project that failed due to “traditional gender norms,” according to the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction.

The Special Representative will also be placed in charge of “countering disinformation and societal violence aimed at… marginalized racial and ethnic communities,” the email reveals. Currently, efforts to combat disinformation are housed in the State Department’s Global Engagement Center, and are primarily aimed at Russia.

Daily Caller

A leaked email obtained by the Daily Caller states that the State Department plans to announce this position on June 17. It is unknown at this time who will hold this position. Once again, however, the mention of “countering disinformation” has reared its ugly head in a position within the US government.

Keep in mind also that DHS Secretary Mayorkas lied through his teeth when he told Congress that the “Government Disinformation Board” would not target American citizens for Constitutionally protected speech. Whistleblower documents given to Congress from the DHS revealed that was exactly what it was designed to do. (American Military News).

Now they appear to want to police the speech of everyone worldwide. And “institutionalize it.”

Biden administration lies

As the Daily Caller mentioned, this plan failed miserably in Afghanistan. The US spent millions working to help women in their society, only to see it crumble totally the moment the US withdrew. The Taliban immediately pulled girls out of schools, banning them from their studies, and demanding that women wear burkas and not leave home without a male family member. That’s entirely on Biden and the Taliban.

The plan to push these types of political viewpoints worldwide is a fool’s errand, not to mention expensive. Cultures are different around the world, so pushing this aberrant equity gig on others is just plain stupid.
