Pat Buchanan charges blacks 'inordinately overrepresented' as federal civil servants (Video)
The Daily Caller ^ | August 30, 2011 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 08/30/2011 11:44:15 AM PDT by Rufus2007

As government cuts loom, one segment of the population could be especially hard hit — the black community — not just because any particular social program is in jeopardy, but because that community makes up a sizable chunk of federal employees.

In an appearance on Tuesday’s Laura Ingraham radio show, MSNBC’s Pat Buchanan elaborated on a case he made in his most recent column, “Obama’s Race-Based Spoils System.” He also questioned why an initiative by the White House to apply affirmative action policies to senior civil service workers is underway.

What government cuts are “looming”? So far all the feds are talking about is reductions in the rate of increase. What departments have been eliminated? What agencies? What programs? Zip Zero Nada.

how much over-represented are they if hiring is based on those with high school or college diplomas compared to other races?

I heard the other day, I think Star Parker on the DANA Radio program (97.1FM talk, EDITOR Big Journalism), that 50% of all Adult Africa America Males are employed by either local, state or federal government. As local government cut jobs, this demographic will be hit the hardest.

I doubt seriously that the Obama administration alone is responsible for the demographic statistics of the ethnic or racial representation among Federal employees - other than possibly some recent politically-induced change in the “Latin-American” representation.

Most of the numbers have been a long time accumulating.

And, it is not so much “race” as it is possibly someone’s own social culture out of which someone comes to prefer the employment security of a government job rather than the rough and tumble of making it in the private sector.

“Fannie=45% black, Freddie=50% black.”

I just refinanced my mortgage online to reap the benefits of the low interest rate.

Because I was online (and just for fun) I checked “black” when it asked my race.

I have a credit credit score (820+) and our mortgage is slightly less than 1/3 of our annual salary (and we have no other debt and good assets), so I knew I would have no problems.

BUT, I got immediate approval from the Freddie (or fannie, I don’t know), and the broker said it should take weeks -— and she credited my racial choice.

“that 50% of all Adult Africa America Males are employed by either local, state or federal government”

And 50% are not employed.

Perhaps 50% of all EMPLOYED AA males are gubmint employees.

African Americans make up 17.4 percent of the federal workforce, as compared to 10.1 percent of the civilian labor force. But the percentage of African Americans drops dramatically with each rise in job grade. They hold 27.6 percent of the lowest positions (GS 1-4), 25.8 percent of GS 5-8, 15.7 percent of GS 9-12, 10.9 percent of GS 13-15 and just 6.9 percent of Senior Pay levels.

“African Americans make up 17.4 percent of the federal workforce”

They are 9.7% of the US population.

So they are 179.38% over-represented. Clearly discrimination against whites.

I seem to recall a certain pResident announcing just before he left on his latest vacation that he was going to push for more diversity in the feral gubbmint workforce.

I suppose this means that more whites will be hired, right?

Federal government hiring policy began with Carter. It was fairly simple, BW, BM, WW, WM, in that order.

I would estimate, conservatively, that where I live is 70-80% white. I have yet to see a white face in any of the three post offices that I frequent.

The affirmative action bean counters tell us if a particular race is not represented in a trade or profession proprtionately to the overall population, it’s because of racism, so there must be racism in federal hiring, as well as the NFL and NBA.

How ironic that the “first black president” will preside over the massive govt job losses and other bennies for africans.
I think it’s great.

Cuts are very unlikely. In history, the only federal agency that has had a major draw-down was DoD, and even then civilian job-loss was kept to a minimum. More often than not, the government just pays people to go away.

LOL. More like a stopped clock is right twice.

Buchanan is a tool, a liar, and an anti-semite of the worst order.

Every single govt job should be scrutinized as to why we need them and explain why they are constitutionally necessary.

Well, let’s see “Jewbacca.”

If Pat Buchanan had been elected in 1996, the border would have been secured when I was a teenager, millions of jobs wouldn’t have been exported overseas, 9/11 would have been avoided, there would be no affirmative action, no multiculturalism, no political correctness, the national debt would be nothing like it is now.

As for calling Pat an “anti-Semite,” it was W. and Barack who “liberated” Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and Iraq. There is no telling how many “friends” Israel has now in its own neighborhood.

Does Israel like its new next door neighbor in post-Mubarak Egypt? Probably not.

Now that the U.S. is broke, there aren’t going to be any foreign wars over there anymore. We can’t afford to go to war over there even if we wanted to.

The only tools around here are the establishment neocons who gave us Poppy Bush, Bob Dole, W., and Juan McCain (now they are trying to give us Mitt Romney) when we could have had a real president a decade ago.

Buchanon is a border-line Shoa-denier who has always aligned himself against Israel and Jewish people.

His anti-semitism is well-documented by many, many, conservative people, most of whom are not Jewish.

Buchanon blamed WWII on Churchill, lied about Hitler’s documented desire to exterminate the Jewish people (blamed the Shoa on Churchill; Hitler just — understandably, to Pat — a Jew-free Germany), and, to paraphrase William F. Buckley, “never met a Nazi he didn’t like.”

I don’t have time to slap-down another recidivist neo-nazi moron today, so, good-bye.

(1) I’ve been reading Buchanan for ten years - please point to me where Buchanan has ever denied the Holocaust. I have never seen this in his writing.

(2) I’m quite sure I remember Buchanan discussing that subject on several occasions.

(3) You’re wrong.

Buchanan is a conservative and a nationalist. He aligns himself with American citizens. That is why Buchanan rejects “entangling alliances.”

(4) Buchanan rejects “entangling alliances” period - with NATO, with East Asia, with Israel, etc. It is self centeredness on your part to interpret Buchanan’s platform as fear and loathing of Israel when it is plainly something else.

If Buchanan were singling out Israel, then he would be for NATO. Israel isn’t a NATO power, but Buchanan wants to dissolve NATO.

(5) Winston Churchill really did play a major role in starting WW2. That is a historical fact. It was Churchill and friends who pushed the British government into WW2.

(6) Where does Buchanan praise Hitler in his book? Buchanan is a historian, not a Neo-Nazi. Do you think WW2 was the best option for Britain and the Jewish people?

I mean ... it looks to me like the Jews lost WW2, right?

(7) Please try your best ... I eat neocons for breakfast and progressives for dinner.

“Please try your best”

I’d have to care about you to try, and you are nothing to me.

Indeed, less than nothing.
