In our society, “Diversity” is a goal pursued above all others, including competency; it is the magic word that makes the lowering of standards okay

… [T]he value of a two year degree was not in question until the [Sarasota, Florida, police] department determined that it was a stumbling block to minority applicants who always seem to need some hand-holding to get over the finish line…

Don’t blame me for saying it, blame Chief [Bernadette DiPino] for implying that minority applicants can’t meet the same standards as everyone else.

Chief DiPino, of course, doesn’t fret over the adverse effects of lower standards. According to Sarasota’s local CBS affiliate, “DiPino says there are other important requirements she looks for such as character, integrity and life experience”…

    I’m convinced that “diversity”, lowering of standards, is the cause of the problems that are appearing with the RCMP today.

      Over Christmas I drove through several roadblocks all of which seemed to be staffed by weedy little beta males and bitchy alpha women, I don’t even think of having alcohol if I am driving and try to be courteous and pleasant but the attitude of these marginal types is outright hostility
      ,One very butch female leaned in so close after I said no alcohol I had to say ‘no further on the first date ” which in hindsight could have gotten me lit up like the seasonal tree.
      Maybe this was a make work project for the unfit for real service I don’t know but the quality of the characters illustrates why there are so many tazer deaths and outright executions committed by the RCMP.

        I know exactly what you mean. On top of this when I see these road checks always with several cops present and then hear how they need more money and more resources to deal with actual crime, I see red.

        • ntt1

          We have one roadblock that is semi permanent on our only access highway, last time I drove through it there were two tow trucks ,an ambulance !!, 4 cop cars and at least 8 men/women officers all to process about a half dozen motorists. I understand that ICBC a BC government mandatory insurance company is paying for these OT feasts rather than reducing our extremely high premiums.

          • Freedom

            In the US they should only have roadblocks for escaped prisoners or fleeing felons or national emergencies etc. Other types of roadblocks are too intrusive to your freedom and remind me of a police state.

          • Freedom

            And the DWI ones are not necessary a police man sitting on the side of the highway can spot who can’t drive safely.

          • Raymond Hietapakka

            …also, use actual felons for the actual road-blocks…

          • ntt1

            What turn them into spike strips? wouldn’t that be unconstitutional?

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        …maybe Staff-Sgt.Butchella is bi-sexual and was homing in for a sniff of your pheremones?

        • ntt1

          now you are frightening me..

    • It can’t hurt! They’ve assured us it’s our strength!

    • Alain

      Very true and unfortunately it has infested and affected more than the RCMP. It is the same all police forces along with correctional officers and the military.

      • disqus_W6sfZCiOd8

        Yikes. And they carry weapons unlike the civilians they promise to protect.

      When I left the army a mate of mine who left at the same time applied to join the RCMP. He was a fluently bilingual captain with an engineering degree from RMC. He was an ammo specialist who commanded an EOD detachment. We was a judo back belt and very athletic, as you would expect from an army captain. On a lark, his wife who was a stay at home mom with two kids and an English degree also applied. She was accepted and he was not (she didn’t join). This is twenty odd years ago now but I bet they still only take white men as an absolute last resort.

      • ntt1

        yes just like the CBC.

      • Surele Surele

        let me guess? a white male?

    How’s this equation: DIVERSITY – ISLAM and ALL MUSLIMS = a healthy MULTICULTURALISM?

    Are we critical of all diversity or just the extra vibrancy from muzzie scumbag immigrants?

    • ntt1

      What does islam as a culture have to really offer? oppression of women? ,animal husbandry ? wipe with the left, eat with the right?

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        What hand do they use to slap the wife?

        • ntt1

          Good point. and what does a left handed muslim do ? he would be forced to dig into the communal casserole with the wrong hand, I bet there is lots of hilarity there..

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Start accepting pot smokers….

  • Edubeat

    Its just the same in the local schoolboards. They hire ANYONE to be a classroom teacher. Diversity not the merit principle rules human remains offices (Present company excluded)

    • Censored_often

      Black males and women in hijabs are the top choice nowadays, most definitely! Nice to learn that merit takes a back seat to political correctness and the misguided notion that “teachers need to reflect the socio-religio-ethnic” character of students in the classes.

      In other words, big muzzie areas of Islamissauga or Scarboristan need many muzzie hijabi teachers and lunch room supervisors and muzzie niqab wearing crossing guards, etc. etc. bus drivers, etc. etc. halal restaurant contracts for the HALAL-ONLY pizza days, etc. etc.

      *sigh*

    “White Males Need Not Apply”
    Sung to the tune of “No Irish Need Apply”

    I’m a decent lad just discharged
    From the Canadian Armed Forces;
    I want a position, yes,
    And want it very bad.

    I have seen employment advertised,
    “It’s just the thing,” says I,
    “But their diversity statement ended with
    “White Males Need Not Apply”.

    “Whoa,” says I, “that’s an insult,
    But get to this place I’ll try,”
    So I went to see these diversity facilitators
    With their “White Males Need Not Apply”

    Some do count it a misfortune
    To be christened a ‘Robert’ or a ‘Dale’,
    But to me it is an honor
    To be born a White Male.

    I started out to find the location,
    I traveled over hill and dale;
    There I found the corpulent diversity facilitator,
    She was reading the Globe and Mail.
    I told her what I came for,
    When she in a rage did fly,
    “No!” she says, “You are a CIS Oppressor,
    And White Males Need Not Apply”

    Forced diversity… it’s beyond stupid.
