“We Have to Be Smart and Strategic About It”: Marxists and EEOC Collude to Ban “Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity”
The radical gay cause is about to get a boost from President Barack Obama, engineered by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, working in collusion with Marxist activist groups.
On December 6, EEOC Commissioner Chai Felblum told an audience of Tennessee Equality Project members at the Memphis Evergreen Church, that President Obama would definitely be issuing an executive order to ban “discrimination based on Sexual orientation and gender identity in federal contracting jobs.”
“Ultimately what is needed,” Feldblum said, “is a federal law.” “But,” she said, “until we get that, what we need is an executive order.”
According to Raines, Feldblum outlined her approach, saying, “You need three things to create social change: law, policy and practice and social norms.” An executive order from President Obama would represent a crucial change in policy and advance the cause of equality.
Feldblum confided, “I have zero doubt the President will issue this executive order.” She paused, then added, “The question is when…we have to be smart and strategic about it.”
Six days later, Raines attended a rally outside the Federal Courthouse in Memphis, part of a statewide series of demonstrations organized by the Tennessee Equality Project, ”to petition President Obama to sign an executive order barring discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in federal contracting jobs.”
The Memphis rally was addressed by a leading TEP supporter Glenn Ramsey, a history professor at Memphis University and a Communist Party activist, supported by his partner Jim Maynard, a leader of the Memphis organizing committee of Democratic Socialists of America.
This is a classic example of Marxist “pressure from above, pressure from below” tactics.
Obama Administration officials work with street level radicals to create so-called “public pressure” for socialist change.
Responding to this “pressure,” president Obama, who supports every plank of the Communist Party / Democratic Socialists of America agenda, can claim some sort of mandate to issue an “Executive Order,” which, at a later date, will certainly become federal Law.
That’s how policy making works in Obama’s America.
