Obama, Not Arizona, Discriminates Based on Race

Kevin Mooney, The Daily Caller

Despite the anti-discriminatory stipulations included as part of Arizona’s immigration enforcement law, President Obama has repeatedly joined with foreign leaders and ethnic pressure groups to condemn the statute as an affront to human rights that enables and encourages racial profiling.

However, Obama’s criticisms of the Arizona legislature are in direct conflict with the actions of his own administration, which has enshrined preferential policies into new federal laws, civil rights activists point out. By contrast, the state lawmakers who have been on the receiving end of White House rebukes have placed on the ballot for voter approval this November an unheralded anti-quota initiative that explicitly outlaws race and gender preferences, the activists point out.

In a joint White House news conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon this past May, Obama characterized Arizona’s immigration enforcement  law, SB 1070,  as a “misdirected expression of frustration” that would subject law abiding individuals to unfair racially motivated scrutiny.

Other administration officials, such as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder, have also invoked the specter of racial profiling as a way to delegitimize and discredit state efforts to enforce federal immigration law.

Meanwhile, critics note, Team Obama is advancing race conscious policies on the sly.

Government agencies and private contractors must incorporate racial and gender preferences into their employment practices under Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank finance bill, Diana Furchtgott-Roth, a senior fellow with the Hudson Institute, says. This key provision calls for the creation of at least 20 new Offices of Minority and Women inclusion.

The affected agencies include: The Treasury, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the 12 Federal Reserve regional banks, the Board of Governors of the Fed, the National Credit Union Administration, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Federal agents would be responsible for ensuring that an appropriate mix of women and minorities were operating not only in government but also within the workforces of contractors and subcontractors.

“Section 324’s provisions are broad and vague and are certain to increase inefficiency in federal agencies,” Furchtgott-Roth noted. “To comply, federal agencies are likely to find it easier to employ and contract with less-qualified women and minorities, merely in order to avoid regulatory trouble. This would in turn decrease the agencies’ efficiency, productivity and output, while increasing their costs.”

The bill also calls for employment tests to be applied against “financial institutions, investment banking firms, mortgage banking firms, asset management firms, brokers, dealers, financial services entities, underwriters, accountants, investment consultants and providers of legal services.”

Additionally, racial preferences have been incorporated into the health care bill in a section beginning on page 879 that Arizona Civil Rights Initiative (ACRI) blogger Allan Favish has analyzed and exposed.

    I can't see where all these impeach petitions are going any where. Obama is not going to be impeached.The ones
    that can impeach Obama don't have the guts to do it. Obama is destorying the U S A and I think that was the plan
    to start. He will be the imposter president untill his term ends and if there is anything left he will be reelected. I am
    80 years old and I have never seen any one so determand to bring this country to its knees as has this one is doing. I wonder if the ones that can inpeach Obama have been paid a big sum like the US supreme court judge
    that said we the people don't have standing to force Obama to show his B C. You know he retired right after
    Obama was made president and my guess is his bank account was a lot bigger than than it has ever been.
    Make me the impeacher and see how long he lasts, I would send him to the lock up quicker than a cat lick his
    ass……
    can
    was

    • Ernest- Only us old ones seem to see what is going on. There is a lot of noise going on right now concerning Obama's harmful actions but I fear the young and the stupid will get him re-elected. Obama is not flubbing up….every move is carefully planned. It's unbelievable that anti-American traitors are in charge. All we can hope for is a coalition of patriots emerge in November and take control of the Congress. The power of the presidency is excessive and Congress must demand our system of checks and balances be restored.

    • LOL, ERNEST R. BROWN I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU ON A LOT OF YOUR COMMENT. OBAMA IS REALLY DOING A NUMBER ON THIS COUNTRY AND ITS NOT ALL FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY. WHAT HE DID TO ARIZONA WAS WRONG AND HE KNOWS IT. AS FOR THE MEXICAN PRESIDENT, HE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM THIS COUNTRY FOR EVER. WHY SHOULD OUR DUMBD DOWN GOVERNMENT REFORM OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS JUST TO PLEASE MEXICO, WHEN THEY HAVE SOME OF THE STRICTEST LAWS THEMSELVES! HE AS MUCH AS SAID THAT IF SOMEONE IS IN MEXICO W/O PERMISSION, "WE SEND THEM HOME"! SO WHY SHOULDN'T WE?

  2. Obama is an anti-white, Islamic racist.

  3. America truly is the land of opportunity,only in America could a Black Man from Kenya get ellected as President of the United States……….

  4. This hurry up and wait for November is getting harder to do. I can't say how I really feel cause they'd be at my door. But by saying that I think at least ya'll know what I mean. It's not a threat it's a wish. Why couldn't O-bozo be a martyr for his muslim buddies around the world? I wouldn't have to look at his ugly a$$ anymore and there would be one less low life on this planet. I'd even celebrate the day with a special holiday — The day we cured the cancer of America Freedom. For now I'll keep dreaming of that and waiting for November. LETS VOTE!!!
