Diversity czar takes heat over remarks
Washington Times ^ | 9/22/09 | Amanda Carpenter

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

How exactly does one define or impose diversity? I don't think any man can come to a definitive conclusion. Is Lloyd trying to play G-d?

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.

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.

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.

You can read his essay entitled “Communications Policy is a Civil Rights Issue” from 1998 here....

http://www.ctcnet.org/resources/review/r981lloy.htm

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)

It's a little early in the battle to be worn out, don't you think? The leftists have been waging their revolution for at least 40 years. We've got to be in it for the long haul.

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?

John Halpin, a senior fellow at the center who was the lead author on the study he wrote with Mr. Lloyd, said in a statement to the Washington Times, "Part of the FCC mandate is to promote localism, diversity and competition in the media. ...

"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.

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)
