Skip to comments.Diversity czar takes heat over remarks
Posted on 09/22/2009 8:52:09 PM PDT by Nachum
President Obama's diversity czar at the Federal Communications Commission has spoken publicly of getting white media executives to "step down" in favor of minorities, prescribed policies to make liberal talk radio more successful, and described Hugo Chavez's rise to power in Venezuela "an incredible revolution."
Mark Lloyd's provocative comments - most made during a tenure at the liberal Center for American Progress think tank - are giving fodder to critics who say Mr. Obama has appointed too many "czars" to government positions that don't require congressional approval. They are also worrying to some conservatives who fear the FCC might use its powers to remove their competitive advantage on talk radio and television

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
Is that a polite way of saying chief race baiter?
I’ve seriously had it with all this madness.
I know....it’s like we’re living in some kind of time warp....of “madness.”
Ive seriously had it with all this madness.”
Me too. There is SOOOOO MUCH madness, it’s hard to keep track of! and that’s exactly how they want it.
Beck covered this today....Lloyd needs to GO!
Diversity czar at the FCC. Hmmm. This just keeps getting interestinger and interestinger.
OK BECK, Go get’em!
I swear, I think I’m hallucinating when I hear about some of the stuff that’s going on.
Maybe that’s their new trick.
To do so many outrageously unbelievable things out in the open that we refuse to believe our own “lying” eyes and ears.
Just another Obama cuckoo...
Well, the Center For American Progress stood up for him. They’re only slightly to the left of Lenin.
Too many czars??
How about, too many communists?
Let us take blunt a level higher. Asshole.
“How exactly does one define or impose diversity?”
Diversity means “pick any color you want, as long as it’s not white”/s
It’s time we declared two Long Wars:
The Overseas Long War = The War On Terror
The Domestic Long War = The War On Communism
Unfortunately the war doesn’t end when our brave men and women come home.
This guy is worse than Van Jones.
What ever happened to the days when “we” used to go get’em?
I hope this story goes viral. These radical Czars have got to go.
What "competitive advantage" do conservatives have? You mean because more people would rather listen to a real American speaking the truth than a marxist America hater spewing BS? Yes, I guess that is an advantage.
Mark Lloyd, "Variety" Czar. (That is a little more P.C..)
We’ll run this flake outta town just like Van Jones.
This is unfreaking believable.
I agree. I heard a clip of this jacksass on talk radio today. HE IS DEFINITELY A RACIST.
“A time warp of madness” you say?
I agree with this guy. There’s a lot of hate just below the surface.
I don’t think the average democrat understands the ramifications of ‘fundamentally tranforming our country’.
Another Thug from the Center for American Progress ...George Soros commies who were in waiting.
or his other speech from 1997 in which he states...”
“AS PROFESSOR SUNSTEIN REMINDS US, WHILE WE PURPORT TO HONOR FREE SPEECH WE HAVE LEFT IT MOSTLY TO A SYSTEM OF UNREGULATED MARKETS.”
(Yes, that would be his friend from back then, Cass Sustein)
Me too..... it wears me out.
Definition of “Ethnocentrism” is “the tendency to believe that one’s own race or ethnic group is centrally important, and that all other ethnic groups are measured in relation to one’s own.” (Wiki)
Van Jones...Mark Lloyd...Rev. Wright anybody missing?
"When 91 percent of the talk radio programming broadcast each weekday is solely conservative - despite a diversity of opinions among radio audiences and the proven success of progressive shows in key cities - the market has clearly failed to meet audience demand. Our goal has always been clear: We want more free speech and diversity of views in the media, not less."
Sorry Charlie, radio broadcasts what the audience wants, not what you want. Audience demand is for conservative talk radio not juiced up former radicals calling themselves "progressives." And the audience will go where it is served up not to some station that spends every waking hour bashing the US. Besides, in the southwest US it seems like every other station is already Spanish language and those owners broadcast what their listeners want, too. Supply and demand not Chavez dictates.
Just another one of the black extremists, a racist who still fears the white man. That’s why they have thugs intimidating the voters, beating up non-conformists (black cnservative in st louis) biting fingers off, and helping pimps put out non-blacks into child prostitution. They fear outsiders, and exploit govt weakness via organizations like acorn. They’ve had 20+ yrs of practice. 2 20 somethings, breitbart, beck and all the news media outlets have exposed them for what they are. An angry subculture who wants control over territory, like a gang.
Maybe there’s a twofer. Lloyd and Buffy.
Thanks for the link.
It was a good read.
twofers is good . . . our task would be completed more expeditiously if we scored a twofer now and then!
It’s what diversity isn’t. It ISN’T the majority of the country. It ISN’T the backbone of the country. It ISN’T the belief in individual liberty and freedom.
My heels are dug in, your heels are dug in, we’re all in it together. One thing that is good is that all that fuzzy talk of hope and change is being replaced with these more overt statements - their true intentions. I don’t believe it is going to go over well with the average American.
An abundance of Obama's czars mimic Reverend Wright racist ideologies. The choice of each of these czars echos Obama's agenda and personal views. Racial equality is not their goal - it is racial superiority. These czars and these views are radical and do not even remotely reflect the ideals and expectations of Americans in the heartland.
I’ve been a victim of reverse racism twice now. It seems that the color of my skin is a bit too pale to keep MY job, while others, less qualified, with less senority and less experience are kept on due to a certain pigment coloration. I tried my best to get a tan, but alas, the Irish part of me causes it to fade rather quickly.
This is blatant anti-Whitey racism BS. And they are trying to turn America into a larger version of South Africa. Have you checked the crime rate in SA lately?
IMPEACH ZERO!!! (and the jack@sses he rode in on)
