Frank Gaffney, the head of the Center for Security Policy and a former national security adviser to Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, was put off by a speech that White House national security adviser Susan Rice gave in Florida yesterday advocating for greater diversity in national security and foreign policy agencies.
“By now, we should all know the dangers of ‘groupthink,’ where folks who are alike often think alike,” Rice said. “By contrast, groups comprised of different people tend to question one another’s assumptions, draw on divergent perspectives and experiences, and yield better outcomes.”
This was too much for Gaffney to handle, so he dedicated his “ Secure Freedom Minute” broadcast today to blasting Rice’s “racism” against white people and claiming that the Obama administration is launching “racist assaults on the common defense” on top of such ongoing projects as “the sexual and social reengineering of the armed forces.”
The definition of racism is imputing shared qualities to a given population simply because they have a skin color in common. Yesterday in Florida, Obama national security adviser Susan Rice declared that people who are alike, namely white people, often think alike. She went on effectively to suggest that Caucasians should therefore be denied employment opportunities in the national security community so that America is ‘fully reflected’ in its ranks. That’s racism.
Worse yet, the White House press secretary indicated that the president agrees. So add racist assaults on the common defense to such other Obama initiatives as debilitating defense budget cuts, religious persecution against Christians in uniform, a lack of training and new weaponry, crippling environmental restrictions and the sexual and social reengineering of the armed forces. The cumulative effect is to leave them hollowed out and inviting enemy aggression. Some legacy.
