Another Affirmative Action Hire Crashes and Burns?

by Brad Nelson   10/3/14

Ian Tuttle has an article about Julia Pierson, former chief of the Secret Service: ‘Sexism’ at the Secret Service:

Julia Pierson was not a scapegoat for male subordinates, nor was she a victim of her supposed aptitude with a broom. She was a victim of her own incompetence. During her tenure, an armed man jumped the White House fence and made it well inside the White House before being apprehended — by an agent who was not even on duty. A few days earlier, a private security contractor with a gun and a criminal record was allowed to stand beside the president of the United States in an Atlanta elevator. The Secret Service is plagued with problems, many of which precede Pierson’s tenure, but under her supervision, the president was at significant risk on multiple occasions. Her job was to make sure that did not happen. She failed, so she had to go.

By the way, I stole the headline for this article form a comment that followed the article at NRO. I have the feeling that there are a lot of pretend-cops around the country who are women simply in order fill quotas and fulfill multicultural expectations. This is the inevitable result when “equality” is raised over plain competence.

And, yes, of course, there are plenty of incompetent men. But only a blind bat (or a cowardly one) couldn’t notice the drive there has been to put women in all walks of life, whether they are qualified for these jobs or not.

About Brad Nelson

I like books, nature, politics, old movies, Ronald Reagan (you get sort of a three-fer with that one), and the founding ideals of this country. We are the Shining City on the Hill — or ought to be. However, our land has been poisoned by Utopian aspirations and feel-good bromides. Both have replaced wisdom and facts.

    Of course, Barry Zero is himself an affirmative-action hire who has stocked his Gang with other affirmative action hires. Julia Pierson was merely a typical example. It’s appropriate that, for once, the results endangered him instead of the rest of us.

      Great points. And Rush was just noting about this whole Ebola thing that no one in the administration is acting with common sense, with a goal to protecting us from this virus. They’re all driven by political correctness and their Marxist ideology.

      Will it take perhaps thousands of Americans to be infected by this deadly virus for them to wake up and say, “Gee…maybe competence matters more than someone’s bullshit ideology.”

      Could happen.

        As long as the victims are located in Republican areas (such as Dallas), I doubt they’ll care — unless it really turns into Obama’s Katrina. If the reports of an Ebola case in DC turn out to be true, that may change.
