Fed Agency Hires Race-Baiting Comedian

Tom Fitton By Thursday, 13 August 2015 12:46 PM Current | Bio | Archive

In the era of Obama, it often seems the worst crime one can commit is to make a comment deemed offensive by totalitarian guardians of various racial and other demographics.

Yet these same liberal guardians often make patently racist remarks and think nothing of spending your tax dollars to subsidize this so-called hate speech. As we posted in Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles blog:

The U.S. government paid a controversial civil rights activist/comedian to deliver an anti-white racist tirade at a major federal agency during Black History month and Judicial Watch has obtained the disturbing transcript and the shocking video of the offensive political rant.

It took place at the United States Census Bureau earlier this year and the paid speaker was Dick Gregory, a self-professed humanitarian and drum major for justice who claims that his social satire changed the way white Americans perceive African American comedians.

But Gregory’s angry outburst at the Census Bureau was not funny to some employees, and the agency was forced to explain that it will thoroughly review its procedures for selecting future speakers to “ensure their views are appropriate for the federal workplace.”

Based on Gregory’s well-known reputation as a fiery race-baiter, it’s unlikely that the government officials who booked him didn’t know about his discriminating, shock-based performances. The Census Bureau paid Gregory $1,400 to “share a wealth of history as a Civil Rights Activist,” according to the records obtained by JW under the federal public records law known as the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Instead, American taxpayers funded a disgusting stand-up routine filled with the “N-word” and replete with conspiracy theories about whites and the U.S. government targeting prominent blacks — including Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X — for assassination or career destruction (golfer Tiger Woods and beleaguered comedian Bill Cosby).

Gregory also said whites stole black inventions, such as ice hockey and the cotton gin, and accused the U.S. government of conspiring to kill Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio.

The movie "King Kong" is really a depiction of former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson dating white women, Gregory claimed at the Census Bureau performance, and whites treat President Obama “like dirt” and “like he’s a Redneck Cracker that can’t read or write.”

Gregory delivered most of his routine in Ebonics (also known as African American Vernacular English) and advised his black audience not to obey “white racist cops,” which he also referred to as “filth.”

The rioters who destroyed Ferguson after a cop fatally shot a black man with an extensive criminal record who had just committed a robbery didn’t steal enough merchandise from the businesses they looted, Gregory told his government audience.

“I was complaining about Ferguson because the [N-word] wasn’t getting enough,” Gregory said, according to the transcript obtained by JW. “Did you see the brother go in there and walk out with a half-pint, I said, ‘Get some tips.’ And, y’all be trying to trick them white folks and say rebellion. No rebellion is put together, predicated, on some white person shooting a black person and that tips it off. Those was riots, riots.”

Gregory also told his audience of public servants that if he were president of the United States no white people would be in his Cabinet. “Had I been elected to be the president, listen good white folks, none of y’all would be in my Cabinet,” he said. “Now don’t worry about black folks who be saying ‘oh, he didn’t mean it.’ So, I’ll say it 10 times, none of y’all be in my Cabinet, none of y’all be in my Cabinet, none of y’all be in my cabinet.”

Many years ago, I met Dick Gregory. Mr. Gregory was interested in JW’s efforts to investigate the mysterious circumstances of former Clinton Commerce Secretary Ron Brown’s death (which he seems to reference in his remarks). He is a smart man, is well-known in the black community (walking down the block with him in D.C. gives one a new appreciation of what a “celebrity” is), and can often be funny. So it is shameful that he wastes his God-given gifts on such racially hostile nonsense and calumny against the police.

Frankly, his words are bothersome and expose the hypocrisy of the left on racial matters. The real scandal is the waste of $1,400 of your tax dollars to pay him — and the waste of tens of thousands more dollars in the time wasted by government employees listening to him.

One must wonder if whites are welcome to work at the U.S. Census Bureau after viewing a video such as this. (By the way, this anti-white racial animus is all too common in the federal bureaucracy.)

Will the FBI and the leftists at the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department investigate this incident? We all know the answer to that, so it will be up to JW to continue to expose this corruption in our federal government.
