Skip to comments.EPA: Staff-wide Che Guevara email an ‘inadvertent error’
Posted on 09/14/2012 1:05:35 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Environmental Protection Agency staff opened their inboxes Thursday to find an agency-wide Hispanic Heritage Month email featuring a prominent picture of Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, and largely plagiarized from the website Buzzle.com.
According to the EPA, the email which heralded the beginning Hispanic Heritage Month on Saturday and offered cultural details about Hispanics was an accident and the employee responsible has apologized.
The email was drafted and sent by an individual employee, and without official clearance. Shortly after sending the email in question the individual apologized to her colleagues for the inadvertent error, an EPA spokesman emailed TheDC in a statement.
While it was a mistake, the email caught the eye and ire of Foreign Relations Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen who called the image of Guevara insulting.
I am aghast and upset that a federal agency would send an email depicting el Che Guevara in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. This Administration just doesnt seem to get it, Ros-Lehtinen said in a statement.
The image of Che is an insult to countless people who lost family members because of his evil and twisted acts. El Che was a blood thirsty, vengeful, cowardly, sadistic, two bit delinquent who used his position as enforcer in chief of the Castro brothers to send countless innocent persons before the firing squads.
Fox News Latino reported that some Florida state representatives were also upset, saying they were insulted and outraged by the memo.
Che was a cold-blooded murderer who killed so many innocent victims, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, Florida Republican and a Cuban-American, said in an email to Fox Latino. This Administration has granted visas to Mariela Castro and other top Cuban regime officials, offered the Castro brothers unilateral concessions, and now sends an E-mail with a image of an anti-American mass murderer.
Che was a Pussy.
I totally understand.
This happens to me all the time. I think I’m sending a regular email to my work colleagues, and I inadvertantly attach Che Guevara and even Stalin pix...
Even Fidel got tired of him.
are all our bases belong to communist?
that was no error..
Al Armendariz, who oversaw federal environmental enforcement in five states, offered his resignation on Sunday in a letter to Lisa P. Jackson, the E.P.A. administrator, saying he regretted his comments and did not want to jeopardize the agencys mission. Senior agency officials had upbraided Dr. Armendariz, who holds a doctorate in environmental engineering, for what they called his inappropriate and inaccurate comments about the agencys enforcement policy.
Ms. Jackson accepted his resignation on Monday morning. It had become clear in recent days that Republicans intended to continue to use Dr. Armendarizs comments as ammunition in their continuing conflict with the Obama administration over environmental regulation........."
The only error was they got caught sending this.
Yes. Note the photo - these "environmenatlists" want all of us riding in horse drawn carts.
Viva Mission Sucre! Viva Presidente Chavez! Viva La Revolucion Bolivariana! Hasta La Victoria Siempre!
Dreams from Hussein's Ghostwriter--see also Arab Spring
The entire bureaucracy has been turned into a part of the Democrat Party and Obama campaign
They’ve dug in deep, especially in the Justice Department.
“...the employee responsible has apologized” - but was the individual taught the utter evil this man wrought on hispanic citizens especially the Cubans? I doubt the employee was fired since his poster was plastered all over the offices during the emptychairs election.
well we know what kind of mind set is running EPA we need to abolish epa
Wrong. They want us to pull the carts while they ride, as they wield whips to make us go faster. The horses will all be romping on beautiful Agenda 21 pastures, far away from our crowded tenements.
One day I hope history records this entire criminal regime called the Obama Administration as an INADVERTENT ERROR!!!!!!!
oh sure just like the Russian ships at the DNC
“The PJ Tatler has obtained documents from the Justice Department detailing efforts to recruit attorneys and staff who are dwarfs or who have psychiatric disabilities or severe intellectual disabilities. On May 31, 2012, Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez issued a directive to affirmatively recruit people with these targeted disabilities.
This DOJ policy does not merely involve prohibitions against discrimination, but rather the documents reveal deliberate recruitment efforts to hire as attorneys and staff for the Department of Justice people suffering from psychiatric disorders and intellectual disabilities. Moreover, applicants can self-identify their disability by means of the Standard Form 256, Self Identification Disability.
Those with targeted disabilities may be hired through a non-competitive appointment. That means they dont have to endure the regular civil service competition among applicants, but can be plucked from the stack of resumes and hired immediately instead.
According to the documents, those with these targeted disabilities may be hired before the position is advertised and even before the positions closing date. Moreover, lawyers with psychiatric disabilities and severe intellectual disabilities receive a waiver from the requirement that a new DOJ employee have practiced law for one year before being hired.
You can read the detailed Civil Rights Division Hiring of Persons With Targeted Disabilities Policy memo here.”...
I stand corrected.
Abe warned us..
You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas . . . .
MSM quotes the EPA as if they are the smartest people on this planet. In fact they are just “political consultants” hired to rubber stamp approval to a political position.
Then he had every qualification needed for a senior job at the EPA. :)
Weird how the Obamanistas never make these kinds of “errors” in defense of freedom and democracy.
Wasn’t this guy’s face also hanging from the White House Christmas tree recently? Maybe that’s why they thought it would fly.
And now, after all the "apologies", the employee will probably get a promotion.
Personally I’d have related better to Pancho Villa. His early occupation, banditry, relates better to federal agencies. He was economical, lining up his enemies in order that one bullet could be used to kill three or four. He was engaged in forced land acquisition and had no concept of individual rights, trial by jury or rule of law. Unfortunately it’s hard to say if he was actually a communist or not.
Sometimes, I occasionally slip up and send out my Pol Pot-Mao Tse Tung daily double.
Seems like a hundred times a day (and I'm not even on FR that much, too busy) I read articles like this, or freepers' comments about "doesn't get it", "clueless", "weakness", etc.
People need to GET IT that the PLAN IS WORKING!!! This is engineered! The gang in charge are Communists and Muslims!!! Not just clueless idiots!
Hell, if the firing squads were not quick enough to shoot the accused, Che shot the victim himself. A cold blooded murderer.
At least we now know for sure who is RUNNING THE EPA.
Just think, in an Obama second term they won’t have to apologize anymore for stuff like this...
When the bureaucracy is part of a political party and a campaign it is called a one-party state tyranny.
Yea, I’ve slipped up with my Pol Pot poster a number of times.
Hate when that happens.
This was not a mistake; it was a statement and war banner. The EPA is a nest of neo-Nazis and communists whose sole purpose is to destroy property rights. They have left a 40-year long trail of sedition, treason and destroyed lives. The Nazi EPA is a gift from Congress to crush you. Can we finally make the logical connection that the Congress is a criminal fascist organization, and it is not your friend?
Vote conservatives and patriots into your state legislatures, local villages and counties this election. We are about to enter step three of the next civil war.
The four steps to a civil war:
1. Choose sides.
2. Hurl insults.
3. Armed skirmishes.
4. The shooting starts.
All caused by a You-Tube video!
It appears that the Secy of Health & All That Other Crapola is guilty of illegally using her position to illegally campaign for Obama and democrats -
But it is all OK now says the Obama-Rigged White House - she was required to attend ethics training and she has promised to be a good little useful idiot now.
The problem with the USA in such cases is that no sane or half way educated person can imagine let alone believe such insanity, corruption, treachery and in fact TREASON by any person sitting in the Oval office. What’s even worse is the level of the naive IDIOTS who cast their vote for OBAMA. Including some of my friends, who have since openly shown abject regret.
Isn’t that called the “normalcy bias”. IOW - “It can’t happen again/here!” “They don’t mean what they say”. “Their plans are just hot air, will never work”. “We’re too civilized/evolved for that to happen again”. “No one could really mean that”.
After immersing myself in a number of books about Hitler’s camps in the early 1980s (well, mostly about the camps - titles like “Treblinka”, “Sobibor”, “Anus Mundi”, “Dora” and “Babi Yar”, I think some more), my huge black and white bolded realization was this:
IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. IT IS INEVITABLE.
Because people are no better; they are worse.
since there are never any consequences, why even bother to apologize???
Thanks for the ping!
