With All Other Issues Resolved, State Department Turns Its Attention to Microaggressions

Now that deliriously hostile and soon-to-be-nuclear Iran, already nuclear North Korea, Russia, and communist China, the Islamic State, al Qaeda, et cetera have been neutralized as threats to the USA, the State Department has nothing else to do but address microaggressions:

According to a newsletter from State Department chief diversity officer John Robinson, employees who commit “microaggressions” may risk violating harassment laws in doing so.

“Harassment” is a crime taken very seriously by the sort of moonbats who run the State Department — far more seriously than they take Islamic maniacs with nuclear weapons.

Robinson published the letter in the November edition of State Magazine with the title “The New Face of Exclusion: Microaggressions.” The magazine is meant to “facilitate communication between management and employees” and “acquaint employees with developments that may affect operations or personnel,” according to the State Department website. In the letter, Robinson explained to employees that microaggressions “are much harder to spot than overt discrimination” and “are often brushed off as lack of tact or an act of nonmalicious ignorance.”

Others brush off microaggressions as groundless excuses to indulge in crybulling. But not the State Department under Hanoi John Kerry.

In his letter, Robinson borrows Columbia professor Derald Wing Sue’s definition of “microaggressions,” which Sue defines as “everyday verbal, nonverbal and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory or negative messages to target persons.”

In his book “Microaggressions In Everyday Life,” Sue claims that saying “Merry Christmas” to a Jewish person is a clear “microaggression.”

Whether saying “Merry Christmas” is a garden variety microaggression or rises to the level of actual harassment in the estimation of the State Department could not be determined. We do know that Robinson considers it a microaggression to ask Asians where they are from. He has also denounced the expressions “holding down the fort” and “rule of thumb” as offensive.

Robinson and Kerry, paragons of uselessness.

    On 20JAN17, the day the new Republican President is inaugurated, he must demand that each and every federal bureaucrat submit their resignation. He can they hire back the VERY VERY VERY FEW that are competent and who actually work to do good for our country.

    The Obama regime is a MACRO-aggression to a majority of decent Americans. I feel harassed every day they are in office. Who is going to penalize them?

    Just another effort to silence speech they disagree with. Saying, “I am a conservative”, “You are a liberal”, “I don’t like socialism”, will get you arrested for violating harassment laws in our brave new world. Our future leaders at Harvard and Columbia scream, cry and need counseling if they hear a conservative thought.

    One of the first, if not the first, acts of a Cruz administration: abolish (and fire the PoS in charge) the “Office of Thought Policing” this fascist office represents.

    Look at it this way: After the collapse these people will be wholly unable to care for themselves and natural selection will take its course… leaving the fit to survive.

    I once demanded that an on-line socialist explain why they attack Christians, but not muslims, pointing out that muslims are for everything her kind are (supposed to be) against.
    The answer was that her kind considers muslims “the far enemy” while Christians are “the near enemy”.

    So calling Robinson an anti-American, hyper-sensative bastage who hates Whites would be a micro-aggression?

    A lesson for the go along to get along crowd.

    It is not possible to obey enough to satisfy Progressive fascists. They will always create more rules or laws you can break, even inadvertently. They do that because that is how they control over you. Go ahead and bend over for them with a smile, they will still enslave you in the end.

    Woo hoo! This is ripe for exploitation! Here’s how….the definition of “microaggression” is: “everyday verbal, nonverbal and environmental slights, snubs or insults,
    whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile,
    derogatory or negative messages to target persons.”

    You white male conservatives in the state department, band together and immediately clog the HR department with complaints of constant microaggressions. The phrase “It’s right there in black and white”, for example, is a microaggression! (It puts the word “black” in front of white so that when spoken by a black person, it’s demoting the white person to second-class citizen). So are the words “cracker”, derivatives of the work “honky” (such as “honk”), and any references to the word “white”. Just read Al Sharpton’s rantings for the last 8 years for ideas. There’s plenty there.

    Do it. Why not? Clog their works with their own BS. Become the pain in the ass that all the leftists are. Only by loading them down with their own rules and regs will they put a stop to such foolishness. And, if HR refuses to deal with your grievances, then threaten to sue them because they’re not taking your case because you’re white. That’s racism.

    (Sarc/on) Yes, I vividly remember my Dad and his generation (the WWII generation), and how they were greatly concerned about the growing threat of microaggressions, second only to the threat of Nazism, of course. (Sarc/off)

    WTF has happened to this country?

    You know, I’ve looked, and I can’t find anything says that the State Department’s list of responsibilities that makes domestic social matters any of their business.

    Maybe they should confine their whining to diplomatic matters.

    Why is it that every federal agency becomes it’s own independent government?

    It was called “Cloward-Piven,” after former Columbia professors Richard Cloward and Frances Piven. To bring down America and our capitalist system, they were taught to overwhelm the system with massive spending, entitlements and debt. That would cause the economy to collapse, wipe out the middle class, and bring Americans to their knees, begging government to save them.

    It’s the exact plan Obama has been implementing. – Wayne Allyn Root

    A micro-aggression is only 1/1,000,000th of an actual aggression, so they’re really not that big of a deal.

    Exactly. If the laws/rules don’t specifically state a gender or race, then it’s open for anyone to use. Just be ready for pushback from the HR department. They don’t like it when men come in and complain about the women unintentionally harassing them.

    Along with an arsenal of state of the art weaponry and unlimited ammunition stockpiles. Basically, everything us peasants are not allowed to have.
