FGA announced that they will be filing Freedom of Information Act requests (FOIA), to target 23 agencies mentioned in the Equity EO, which includes the Departments of State, Justice, Defense, Labor, Transportation, Education, Social Security, and Health and Human Services.
FGA asserted that the plan was developed by a far left activist organization, and said it was “designed to circumvent the normal, democratic process and instead force their ideology onto Americans.”
“These equity teams are a Trojan horse planted in the heart of every federal agency to fundamentally change decision-making across the bureaucracy. Their goal is to continuously and permanently embed Left-wing ideology into every agency action," Tarren Bragdon, FGA President and CEO said of the executive order, the outlet reported.
“We cannot allow this new ‘woke army’ to force un-American philosophy into all corners of our federal government. They will degrade our nation’s capabilities and effectiveness, while undermining our liberty and security," he continued.
“We’ve seen the economic devastation over the first two years of the Biden presidency. If radical ideology is ingrained into every policy and regulatory decision at all agencies, the impact on the American people and economy will be widespread, devastating, and impossible to reverse,” Bragdon added.
He made a reference to part of Section 2 of the order, which describes and explains the requirement that agency chiefs across the administration must ensure the formation of an “Agency Equity Team” within their agencies to “coordinate the implementation of equity initiatives,” in order to deliver “equitable outcomes” to the American people. 'Equitable' to the Democratic Party's leftist wing, of course, means discriminating against white people and getting away with it.
“The clock is ticking on President Biden’s term. And the radical forces inside his administration and their partners on the outside know they have limited time to embed their ‘leaders and practitioners’ into every federal agency before they lose power. If successful, this ‘woke army’ will outlast the Biden presidency and become a permanent fixture deeply entrenched in our government," said Stewart Whitson, FGA legal director.
“Through this investigation, FGA is fighting to expose this attempted ideological takeover of our federal agencies, and we won’t stop until we’ve uncovered the truth. We will share the information we uncover with Congress, the states, and the American people so that, together, we can help stop this unconstitutional effort before it’s too late," he added, according to the outlet.
On his first day as President, the first executive order President Biden signed was Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government (E.O. 13985). In February, just over two years later, President Biden signed Executive Order 14091, Further Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through The Federal Government. As its title suggests, this new executive order builds on the previous one and thereby furthers the Biden administration’s effort “to continuously embed equity into all aspects of Federal decision-making.”
Make no mistake, this 'order' -- which is certain to be challenged in federal court as soon as the worst elements of it begin to be enforced -- will further erode civility in our multi-ethnic country by pitting Americans against each other based on skin color...something that was supposed to have been dealt with time and time again over the centuries.
