USDA gay-sensitivity training seeks larger audience
The Washington Time ^ | Friday, June 17, 2011 | Rowan Scarborough

Posted on 06/18/2011 11:18:19 AM PDT by Hunton Peck

U.S. Department of Agriculture activists want to impose their intense brand of homosexual sensitivity training government-wide, including a discussion that compares “heterosexism” — believing marriage can only can be between one man and one woman — to racism.

If accepted by the Obama administration, that move could mean more sessions for military service members already undergoing gay-sensitivity indoctrination. Critics fear additional gay-oriented training would be an unnecessary added burden for combat troops and encourage some to leave.

USDA officials have asked the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which oversees all federal worker policies, to impose its gay-awareness programs on all federal departments, according to an internal newsletter.

The push for the training is coming from Agriculture Secretary Thomas J. Vilsack, former Democratic governor of Iowa. He has launched a department-wide “Cultural Transformation” that includes the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender [LGBT] Special Emphasis Program.”

The USDA’s senior training coordinator, Bill Scaggs, has developed a sensitivity program far more extensive than the Pentagon’s training for the anticipated lifting of the ban on open homosexuals in the ranks. His training program, which OPM calls “groundbreaking [and a] model for other agencies,” delves more into gay issues and terminology. It also justifies pro-homosexual political positions.

Elaine Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness and opposes the repeal of the military’s gay ban, said it would be a mistake for the Obama administration to impose the USDA sensitivity-training program on the Pentagon.

“There are disturbing implications for national defense in the USDA’s development of a ‘groundbreaking’ training program that is to become a model for other federal agencies,” she told The Washington Times.She predicted that, once the ban is lifted, “training programs similar to the USDA’s LGBT Special Emphasis Program will become a growth industry within the Department of Defense.”

Since it's the USDA, can sheep-love sensitivity training be far behind -- so to speak?

Shouldn't the USDA stick to beating meat?

I guess sausages would attract gays.......

If that's the case then the freaks of nature are racist towards heterosexual people.
Sick.

Well. Under Gaybama, the Department of Agriculture is now devoting itself to gay sensitivity training, while NASA has given up on space exploration and has turned to patting Muslims on the back for their great scientific achievements.

What’s next? Impossible to guess.

That lie from start. The goal has always been to use the power of government to force the masses to accept homosexuality and to take away freedom from dissenters.

I have already requested my Congressman—and Senators Udall,and Bennet consider cutting the Govt. WASTE by cutting the AG Dept. When Ag thinks Cultural Reconstruction is what they ought be doing they are growing the WRONG crop. Dont want the drugs that probably motivated this dung heap of an idea. There simply is NO credible Science to suggest a sexual orientation can rationally be equated to race.And No Reasonable person would suggest those Americans who still believe in Marriage as a union of one man and one woman equate to racists.Cut AG save America

a discussion that compares “heterosexism” — believing marriage can only can be between one man and one woman — to racism.

This is one of the left's deadliest weapons: using their dominance of the media to change the language. By creating and using a term, they create the illusion of consensus. From what FReepers who watch network tv post here, most sitcoms and dramas have at least one gay character. Again, illusion.

U.S. Department of Agriculture? This has to be a joke. Bulls don’t make calves by mounting other bulls and the Dept. of Agriculture knows that. Ranchers would be out of business in one season if that were the case. Mother Nature provides for male/female reproduction and we all should know it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.

It seems to me that the best place for these USDA activists is to send them to rural farms and ranches to indoctrinate farmers and ranchers about how they should stop being "heterophiles" and start embracing each other in a gay sort of way.

By themselves. And not being overly judicious about what indoctrinator went where.

Seems like the ultimate goal is to drive all sane people out of government — including the military — while diminishing the private sector as much as possible, so we’re ultimately a society in which only freaks thrive.

They don’t have the “birds and bees” figured out, but they can run the the Ag dept. They need to spend more time outside.
Why are we letting these brainless nitwits run things?

These people will never give up. They will push constantly work like a ratchet. Move things constantly one way, and never go back the other way.

They have time to do this stuff. Most of the workers and producers in the world do not have the time.

We think, if we just give them this one issue; they will be happy. They won’t ever be.

From the USDA:

Therefore, if one believes:

Then I guess that means, in the eyes of at least one agency of the Federal Government, one is a bad person and no better than a member of the Klan. (BTW, you may wish to click on the "ref" links above to see what horrible people made all of those intolerant statements)

So I guess now the next step will be to make the organization that uttered all of the above horrible statements illegal outright.

Well, I'm sure that will be perfectly OK with most people in this country (/sarc)

Does anybody here...ANYBODY...think that our staunch Republican leadership is going to lift even one pinky in complaint about this?

Let’s examine the before and after of so called gay liberation.

Before: Noel Coward, Oscar Wilde, Billy Wilder, Gertrude Stein.
After: Lady GaGa, Allen Ginsburg, Elton John, Rachel Maddox.

Before: Tasteful decorating, Busby Berkley Musicals, Literary Salons, Art Galleries.

After: Act Up, Pride Fest, Rainbow Sash Movement, Lady GaGa.

Before: Two gentleman who owned an antique shop together and raised rare plants and Persian cats.

After: Two leather punks demanding the right to have sex in a public park.

Yep there is a lot to say for the closet.

I mentioned in an earlier post the possibility that the intent is to drive normal people out of the government altogether, while shrinking the private sector into powerlessness.

Another, more specific implication of this perversion-normative (to steal a construction from the freaks) policy is to make sure the military is composed entiirely of loyalists to the regime if a revolution comes.
