On February 16, 2023, the White House released a new Executive Order: Executive Order on Further Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through The Federal Government.

For those who have forgotten or never learned about Communism, Section 2 of the Executive Order repeats history by essentially installing Political Commissars in all agencies in the US government:

Sec. 2. Establishing Equity-Focused Leadership Across the Federal Government. (a) Establishment of Agency Equity Teams.

Lists the agency heads of State, Treasury, Defense, Justice, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, HHS, HUD, Transportation, Energy, Education, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, SBA, Social Security, GSA, USAID, EPA, NASA, NSF, and OPM.

Shall, within 30 days of the date of this order, ensure have in place an Agency Equity Team within their respective agencies to coordinate the implementation of equity initiatives and ensure that their respective agencies are delivering equitable outcomes for the American people.

(i) Each Agency Equity Team shall be led by a designated senior official (senior designee) charged with implementing my Administration’s equity initiatives and shall include senior officials from the office of the agency head and the agency’s program, policy, civil rights, regulatory, science, technology, service delivery, financial assistance and grants, data, budget, procurement, public engagement, legal, and evaluation offices, as well as the agency’s Chief Diversity Officer, to the extent applicable.

Agency Equity Teams shall include a combination of competitive service employees, as defined by 5 U.S.C. 2102(a), and appointees, as defined in Executive Order 13989 of January 20, 2021 (Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Personnel), and to the extent practicable, shall build upon and coordinate with the agency’s existing structures and processes, including with the agency’s environmental justice of underrated under Executive Order 14008 of January 27, 2021 (Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad), and with the senior agency official designated to coordinate with the Gender Policy Council pursuant to Executive Order 14020 of March 8, 2021 (Establishment of the White House Gender Policy Council).

(ii) The senior designee at each agency shall be responsible for delivering equitable outcomes to the extent consistent with applicable law and shall report to the agency head.

(iii) Each Agency Equity Team shall support continued equity training and equity leadership development for staff across all agency workforce levels.

(iv) Each agency’s senior designee shall coordinate with the agency head, agency budget officials, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to ensure that the Agency Equity Team has sufficient resources, including staffing and data collection capacity, to advance the agency’s equity goals.

Agency heads shall ensure that their respective Agency Equity Teams serve on priority agency actions in an advisory and coordination role.

We must fight this with all our might. It is time for Patriot Americans to say no to these radical Executive Office actions not supported by the people!
