The Perfect Storm of Liberalism has arrived.

A professional collapse inside the several departments and agencies of the United States government created by a decades-long erosion of standards. An erosion fed by all manner of deadly liberal obsessions from racial quotas to political correctness to an addiction to lawsuits, the tolerance for a culture of out of control spending, wildly improper personal behavior, and more.

This deadly combination is now surfacing repeatedly in scandals as seemingly different as those engulfing the Secret Service, the GSA, the U.S. military, the Department of Justice, and every other tentacle of the federal government imaginable.

Let's look at it liberal issue by liberal issue and examine how this perfect storm of liberalism is swamping the affected government department or agency in question.

Let's start with:

• Racial quotas and the Secret Service: An American Spectator source has fingered the hot-button issue of racial quotas as a serious problem for the Secret Service, an allegation now surfacing (hesitantly to be sure) in no less than the liberal Washington Post.Scissors-32x32.png

Her move prompted grumbling among some longer-serving white supervisors that she was unqualified, according to people with knowledge of the situation, including a former agent who left recently. A lot of the "good old boys" were not happy, said the former agent, who, because of the sensitive nature of personnel decisions, asked not to be identified.

 

Her we see the problem of affirmative action/hiring quotas. It matters not if she is a good supervisor or not or if standards were lowered or not. It appears there is a wide spread idea that she was hired/promoted for reasons other than her qualifications. As long as people are hired/promoted for any reason than they earned it, expect to see more of this...true or not...there will always be a question.

 

30-40 years ago a person could make an argument that so sort of affirmative action/hiring quotas was needed...but as the saying goes, That was then...This is now.
