To meet the Obama administration’s goal of “implementing a robust diversity strategy” at the Department of Defense (DOD), the agency’s director of diversity violated government rules by distributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to controversial leftist groups. Adding insult to injury, a “consulting” firm gets nearly half a million dollars from the DOD to help distribute the money to groups—even those that don’t qualify—that support the Pentagon’s “diversity strategy and program objectives.”
Among the recipients is the notorious open borders group League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Minority Access Inc., a Maryland-based nonprofit committed to decreasing disparities and reducing incidences of environmental injustices, and the renowned National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Others include the Society of American Indian Government Employees and the Asian American Government Executive Network. In all, the Pentagon’s Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity (ODME) gave these and other groups north of $300,000, according to a DOD Inspector General report released this month. These are considered “affinity” groups involved with networking or professional associations that are often race, ethnic background or gender based, according to the report.
