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.
