Intelligence Community Goes PC Thanks to Obama And Biden

It makes us less safe.

In this era of international turmoil, what does the Biden administration, and the Obama administration before that, do to beef up our intelligence capabilities? It goes full PC and obsesses on racial and gender quotas. Tucker Carlson brings us details.

 

Carlson: “There are an awful lot of issues in the news right now. A lot of them are pretty depressing. So on this Friday, we thought we’d start with something pretty amusing.

Back in 2015, our government’s so-called intelligence community, which is not intelligent or a community, announced that it was embarking on a new five-year mission. The goal, according to the Obama administration, was to funnel more resources to every spy agency in the country — the CIA, NSA, FBI, DIA and so forth. Even the Coast Guard’s in-house intelligence operation was slated to get a bigger budget.

Do you think Nancy Pelosi's January 6th commission is just political theatre?

Under normal circumstances, an announcement like that would set off fear trembling among our opponents around the world. They’d be shaking in their caves. The Chinese might think twice before bribing more Harvard professors or sending Eric Swalwell a new secret agent to have sex with. But in this case, they just laughed. Because they knew that money wasn’t going to buy drones, or more sophisticated surveillance equipment, or more agents in the field. Instead, it was earmarked for new platoons of “equity and inclusion” consultants and HR administrators.

The point of the money was to make the intelligence community more “diverse,” meaning less White and male. Finally, America’s spies would look different. Which is essential if you want to… to… to… well, actually we’re not sure why it’s essential. What does the race and gender of intelligence agency employees have to do with keeping America safe? They never told us. Instead, they told us something we’d heard once or twice before: ‘Diversity is our strength.’

Enormous strength. We are now officially much stronger. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has just released the proof: it’s called the ‘Annual Demographic Report for Fiscal Year 2020: Hiring and Retention of Minorities, Women, and Persons with Disabilities in the United States Intelligence Community.’ You’ll want to get a copy in time for Christmas — not to read it. It isn’t meant to be read. In fact, it’s unreadable. But for the pictures. The pictures are amazing. We now have conclusive photographic evidence that our spy agencies employ several people with different color skin. There’s even a woman in a wheelchair, as well as a man who appears to be blind.

How do we know he’s blind? We don’t make assumptions like that. Because he’s got Ray Charles glasses, a cane and a seeing-eye dog. If that seems like a lot, remember: the best spies have a backup plan. Let’s say Russian assassins come after our blind intel agent as he’s picking up a dead drop of microfilm in a park in East Berlin. They somehow manage to take out his seeing-eye dog. Maybe with a net. That’s OK. He can manage. He’s still got both the cane and the glasses. And by the way, we assume the cane shoots curare darts. At the CIA, they think of everything. It’s their job.”
