US Government Employees Ordered To Chant ‘Pilgrims Were Illegal Aliens’

USDA Portrays Pilgrims As Illegal Aliens

Once again, the battle is raging between those who look on the establishment of the United States as successful nation building and those who would denigrate America’s founders as slave owning racists who murdered the native inhabitants. In keeping with the revisionist view of history, the USDA (The US Department of Agriculture) spent $200,000 of the taxpayer’s money on sensitivity training. As part of the program, lecturer, and “citizen of the world,” Samuel Betances conducted a group session during which he ordered the audience to chant “The Pilgrims were illegal aliens” and “America was founded by outsiders who are today’s insiders.”

Concerned citizens are asking why the Obama Administration is spending large sums of money on sensitivity training when our nation is 16 trillion dollars in debt. They want to know why the training was not intended for public disclosure even though it was funded with public money.

Maintaining the lecture’s secrecy was apparently of great concern to the US Department of Agriculture. When USDA Training Administrator Vincent Loran asked Mr. Betances for a copy of the video, he sent him an email to assure him the lecture would never be made available to the public:

“It will not be used for or show [sic] in any way shape or form.”

Conservative government accountability watchdog Judicial Watch heard about the training and filed a Freedom of Information Act request in May of 2012 to obtain a video of the lecture. They finally received a copy of the information nine months later.

One might wonder what is so unusual about the presentation that our government forced the taxpayers to sue in order to view the material? Did the USDA have concerns about the content of the lecture, or was there something more sinister involved?

The answer to this question is rather interesting. Mr. Betances, according to his own words, received his training from former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley. Michelle Obama worked for Mayor Daley, and many members of the Obama Administration have deep connections to the Daley machine and progressive politics.

Among those Obama officials from Chicago is former White House Chief of Staff William M. Daley, brother of Mayor Richard M. Daley and son of Mayor Richard J. Daley. Curious taxpayers wonder if Mr. Betances’ company was selected to produce the lecture on merit or because of his ties to the Daley family?

Judicial Watch also expressed great concern over the attitude expressed in the lectures, which they see as nothing less than political correctness run amok and an attempt to demonize White males. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton spoke on behalf of his organization:

“This USDA diversity training video depicts out-of-control political correctness. Can someone please explain how any of this helps USDA employees to better serve the American taxpayer? This video further confirms that politically correct diversity-training programs are both offensive and a waste of taxpayer money. No wonder it took over half a year to obtain this video from the Obama administration.”

While Americans are certainly divided on the future direction of our nation, many citizens are highly offended by the relentless attack on our culture. They wonder why the Federal government spends money to deliver a message that is hostile to the accomplishments of our nation and the good works of those who came before us.

As a taxpayer, you must decide if our government should be spending your tax dollars on sensitivity training or if the money would be better spent on feeding the hungry and educating our children. Should we spend our energy sub-dividing America into racial and social groups, or will America become the post-racial nation Obama promised before he was elected in 2008?

Here are some of the comments and videos by Samuel Betances. Read them for yourself and decide if you think our government should spend our dwindling resources on “diversity training.”

“White males founded the USDA! Say ‘Thank you, white males.’ I know it got stuck, some of you couldn’t get it out. I understand. Let’s try that again. Go ahead. Notice I’m not saying, ‘Thank you for slavery, or sexism, or what happened to the indigenous Native American folks.’ I’m saying thank you for what? I’m saying, ‘Thank you for establishing the agency in which those of us that are not white males seek to play a larger role.’ We’ve got grievances! This institution, like all federal institutions, have not been fair.”

“I want you to say that America was founded by outsiders – say that – who are today’s insiders, who are very nervous about today’s outsiders. I want you to say, ‘The Pilgrims were illegal aliens.’ Say, ‘The Pilgrims never gave their passports to the Indians.'”

    Perhaps I'm mistaken but I thought the pilgrims purchased the land from the local tribes? Another aspect of history that's getting getting spun by revisionist historians is the Pequot war. They claim that Thanksgiving was instituted to cover up the massacre of the Pequot tribe.

    While I'm sure some of the pilgrims probably did not always have the moral high ground, if you read a detailed account several things come out. 1. The Pequots were hostile and murderous even to other tribes, taking over territory through war. 2. Other tribes joined the pilgrims in the war against the Pequots. 3. The pilgrims attempted to get the Pequots to surrender and end hostilities. Some 200 stopped fighting, but the rest continued.

    It's getting a little old, hearing my beloved country torn down, and using my taxes to do it.If the so called minorities, other than the American Indians, don't like it here, then leave.We don't need or want you here.

    This video should be on every local news show. Americans need to see this unbelievable display of racism. The country is very divided since it elected a community organizer to it's highest office. God help us.

    Your hard earned taxes are being taken from you—the American people to pander to the illiterate, illegal aliens who are still coming here with the compliments of the morons in Washington. Not just across a poorly supported border, but masquerading as tourists as well? You are being forced by an out-of-touch court judicial system to disburse for all the costs of illegal aliens and their children smuggled here through a mostly poor structure called the Fence and not the previous Presidents two fences that should stretch from Brownville, Texas to the coastal edge of California. Some members purposely underfunded the real 2006 Secure Fence Act, because employers who hire illegal aliens didn’t like it. It cut their corporate profits. In other words it was too good a structure that made it more difficult for criminal illegal aliens to negotiate? A structure similar in comparison to the State of Israel towering barrier to keep murdering insurgence out. What our Congress has to do now is to pass “The Legal Workforce Act”, combined with the provision of mandatory E-Verify to oust illegal workers from the 23 million American jobs.

    Also pass the Birthright Citizenship Bill” that stops smuggled children becoming instant citizens, thus allowing the parent’s of “Foothold Babies” to live of the proceeds of the new citizen entitlements. This has become a lucrative business in the U.S., to the financial detriment of the aggrieved taxpayer. This last above mentioned law leads to in due course Family Chain Migration sponsorship and yet even more Dream Acts that is leading to huge tax hikes. When you pay Uncle Sam in April, you are not only paying for all the agencies of the government, federal, state and municipal revenues, but food stamps for illegal aliens just passed by the Liberal administrations, Medicaid and health care treatment for free, and the bulk of the money going to the children of illegal aliens education. This policy has influenced every American citizen/legal resident of any skin color, religious affiliation or politic party line for decades.

    Guest workers must be given serious consideration as long as the farming industry pays for everything, not the taxpayer. Stem tech and professional jobs must only go to the highest skilled people who will not end up on the entitlement line. I million a year of all categories is enough, but most immigrant visas should go to the talented people and all others must be dealt with severely who break our laws.

    With little or no hesitation by both political parties, except for the overall majority of the TEA PARTY we are going to see this year some form of Amnesty. This is the promise of King Obama and the Imperial Court. American citizens have no other course of action but to petition your Congressman and Senate representatives. This country is going to the dogs under administration that is denying the rights of citizens of their U.S. Constitutional rights. To petition your people in Washington for free, go to NumbersUSA.

    We still have a chance to make ourselves known to that Gang of 8 politicians, as there is access to free faxes at NumbersUSA, to petition Washington. YOU CAN ALSO PHONE YOUR disreputable POLITICIANS THROUGH THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT PHONE SWITCHBOARD AT (202) 224-3121. The Immigration debates are going on now and we should demand no more Paths to Citizenship; that illegal aliens should return to their home country and go through the rigorous process that honest immigrants must take. EVERY CITIZEN HAS A RIGHT TO PETITION HIS STATE OR FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVE AND ESSENTIALLY OFFER HIS GRIEVANCES ABOUT ANYTHING, INCLUDING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

    Samuel Betances was hired to give this same BS diversity training seminar TWICE to the senior enlisted and officer ranks at the United States Naval Academy in both 2008 and 2009. This started before Obama took office, however, I have no doubt that it has been accelerated since his Inauguration in 2009. These seminars were nothing more than brainwashing exercises…..I know because I was there at the Academy and forced (mandatory) to attend both times. I thought at the time what a sham and a complete waste of taxpayer dollars.
