It’s no surprise to see this piece in the New York Post today: Why the Obama administration sees racism everywhere. From the article:
Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, who’s made incendiary — and shamefully disingenuous — statements about race relations in America.
Last month, for instance, Perez told hundreds of black students in Washington, DC, that school authorities in the South recently had black high-schoolers arrested for infractions as innocuous as fashion faux pas and farting.
He made the shocking allegation during a July 15 speech he delivered at Howard University.
Author Paul Sperry shows that’s a complete lie. He goes on:
There’s only one explanation: To rile young African-Americans up about the specter of a still-racist America. (Requests to Perez’s office for comment went unanswered.)
School administrators aren’t the only people Perez has framed as racists. He’s also railroaded dozens of banks, including Bank of America and Wells Fargo, for alleged lending discrimination.
From 2009-2013, he used a discredited civil-rights theory known as “disparate impact,” which relies on statistics to prove racism, to extort huge settlements from bankers and mortgage lenders, whom he’s compared to Klansmen.
We have a big archive on Tom Perez, here. He’s a leftist racist activist from Maryland, deeply involved with CASA of Maryland, the illegal immigrant promotion group. In his previously position a crony of Eric Holder in the Justice Department, he engaged in some nasty activities. From a July 2013 post:
The whistleblowers claim that Perez and his senior staff “began a widespread campaign” of discriminatory treatment against disabled employees as well as other employees “based on race; gender; age; and/or parental status.” The employees who opposed this discrimination were “subjected to an exceptionally hostile work environment and unlawful retaliation.” The whistleblowers include African-American, Hispanic, and female employees.
What is most startling in the allegations is the reason given for the discrimination: “the Perez actions were directed at preserving the positions of political appointees who have ‘burrowed’ into [the] Civil Rights Division through Perez’s patronage.”
“Tom Perez is more than just some left-wing ideologue. He’s a left-wing ideologue who appears perfectly willing to bend the rules to achieve his ends,” Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said before voting against Perez.
