Federal Workers Made to Chant: 'The Pilgrims Were Illegal Aliens'

February 15, 2013 - 1:21 PM

Judicial Watch has released videos showing the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) holding required "Cultural Sensitivity Training" sessions created by diversity awareness trainer Samuel Betances - at a cost to taxpayers of $200,000.

Judicial Watch reports:

"The sensitivity training sessions, described as 'a huge expense' by diversity awareness trainer and self-described 'citizen of the world' Samuel Betances, were held on USDA premises. The diversity event is apparently part of what USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack described in a memo sent to all agency employees as a 'new era of Civil Rights' and 'a broader effort towards cultural transformation at USDA.'

"In 2011 and 2012, the USDA paid Betances and his firm nearly $200,000 for their part in the "cultural transformation' program."

Within the videos, Betances has the audience repeat after him in a brainwashing fashion. Among the chants repeated are:

  • "Thank you, black folks,"
  • "The pilgrims were illegal aliens" and
  • "The pilgrims never gave their passport to the Indians."

In another clip, Betances states he doesn't like the word "minorities" and prefers "emerging majorities."

The obvious question is: why is the USDA holding "Cultural Sensitivity Training" sessions on "cultural transformation?"
