Will "diversity" beat 1st Amendment in Round two?

Bob Unruh says the fight over the "tyranny" of higher education's "diversity" agenda is taking center stage, with judges in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hearing arguments on whether a university can fire an administrator for expressing an opinion that conflicts with the institution's adopted political perspective.
 
"It should be concerning to all Americans that officials at a public institution such as the University of Toledo believe they can fire someone for violating the university's 'value system' even though such actions clearly violate the Constitution," said David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center.

"This case only reinforces the fact that the liberal idea of 'diversity' is code for the tyranny of political correctness."
 
Robert Muise, co-founder of the AFLC, is scheduled tomorrow to argue before the appeals judges on behalf of Crystal Dixon, a former human resources administrator at the University of Toledo.
 
She was dismissed in 2008 for expressing her personal, Christian viewpoint about homosexuality in a letter to a local newspaper.
 
Dixon is appealing a district court's decision that the school's "diversity" interests were more important than the First Amendment.
 
"Anti-Christian bias and bigotry is a hallmark of the 'diversity' crusade that is promoted in our universities and other public institutions – and this case is an egregious example of this one-way diversity and its pernicious impact on our fundamental rights," said Muise.
 
"Here, officials from the University of Toledo violated the Constitution by firing Ms. Dixon for exercising her First Amendment right to freedom of speech."
 
Oral arguments in the case are scheduled before the court tomorrow, but a decision could be some weeks away.
 
It was April 3, 2008, when Dixon read an opinion piece published in the Toledo Free Press that compared homosexuality to the civil rights struggles of African-Americans.

"Dixon, an African-American and practicing Christian, disagreed with this comparison and subsequently submitted her own opinion piece to express her personal viewpoint,"  AFLC reported.
 
"Dixon's opinion piece, published on April 18, 2008, in the newspaper's online edition, stated, in relevant part, "I respectfully submit a different perspective for [the author of the original op-ed] and Toledo Free Press readers to consider . … I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are civil rights victims."
 
She signed only her name and made no mention of her position at the university.
 
One month later, Dixon got a letter from Lloyd Jacobs, head of the university, terminating her employment over "the public position you have taken in the Toledo Free Press."
 
She sued over 1st and 14th Amendment violations.
 
Earlier this year, a trial judge said the school's actions were proper.
 
"Surprisingly, on other occasions, university employees, including its president, Dr. Lloyd Jacobs, have publicly expressed personal opinions and viewpoints about various political and social issues in the local newspapers without any adverse consequences," the law firm noted.
 
"In fact, the vice provost of the University, Carol Bresnahan, was quoted in the Toledo Blade in December 2007 as stating, '[B]igotry is to blame for those who oppose the [domestic-partner registry] law. It's their religious beliefs, and bigotry in the name of religion is still bigotry.'"
 
"Bresnahan was identified by her official university position. Despite the alleged emphasis on tolerance, equality, and diversity at the university, Jacobs did not reprimand Bresnahan for her bigoted, anti-religious comments, let alone terminate her employment. And in explaining the inconsistency, Jacobs testified that 'if you make a statement contrary to the university's value system, that's not fine,'" the law firm said.
 
Dixon's attorneys argue that the university is demanding it "prescribe what 'shall be orthodox' in matters of opinion."
 
Dixon, writing as a private individual about her beliefs, said, "As a Black woman … I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are 'civil rights victims.' Here's why. I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman. I am genetically and biologically a Black woman and very pleased to be so as my Creator intended."

Claudia is right.
We have an "Assimilation Problem" here in America. "Diversity" is a made up problem for Marxist Alinskyite tin-horn demagogue Community Organizers like BHO to exploit. Create your own Crisis 101. Exploit a problem, don't solve it.

by the way, EVERY TIME A DIVERSITY PROGRAM has been started in just about any schooldistrict NATION WIDE, they fail because diversity is not a given thing that we all have to accept and some, usually the most non-diverse of school systems in the nation do not benefit from them at all, because THOSE SCHOOLS AND THE STUDENTS THEMSELVES DO NOT WANT TO BE DIVERSE. They are comfortable in their own skin where they are located and when you re-locate from another school, the student has trouble learning to be diverse in his new surroundings as well as the new surroundings have trouble becoming comfortable in/with their new accomodations, thus the FAIL...... in history, diversification FAILs every time it has been tried, they don't win because there are far too many who want to remain in their own safety net, and have a right to do so, because of where they are, and who they chose to live around. Diversity only wins when a NEWW GOV'T marches in and takes over what was once a strong-hold of a safety net, non-diversified area or nation, sect, or creed, BY FORCE.....

I think that if a person wants to have diversity, then he should make himself "like" those that he wants to instead diversify, in other words, when in Rome, do as the Romans..... not have everyone else become the Americans in Rome who want nothing to do with becoming the American... If you go into something without looking at all the ramifications then you have no one to blame but yourself, IF you do not want to learn Italian in Rome, then you should not go to Rome.... you do not have the right to make the Italians learn English to accomodate YOU. Case in point, when the Mexicans come to the USA, they should learn to do and be Americans, not force us to accomodate them in every one of their supposed needs because they are too lazy or stupid to learn to be like the Americans that they want so much to be accepted by. Grow to be what you want to have everyone else around you diversify too..... am I making sense here??

boy, that guy goes to work to create what he thinks is a really great thing and he ruins a whole school system and board and the makeup of the learning environment while doing it, and he forces "diversity" on to everyone even though most of the people there don't really need it or have ever even thought about it much, thankfully; and he gets away wiith his rhetoric while pushing this utopian way of life, but kills the greatness of the school he infested with his diversity logic..... and then he wants to start over in another schooll district and do the same thing, people pushing people to do more and be other than what they want to be, and that ruins everything he touches......WHAT AN ASS OCTOPUS, devouring all that he comes in contact with by any one of his many "hands".....(his daughter that he uses as an example).

He needs a bit of "anti-diversity" training in his own mind.

If this is not sarcasm, this guy needs to take early retirement so he can devote full time to his unicorn ranch.

Note: It goes full circle. At 70% "diversity" it is so dangerous that he has to take his kid out of that school and put her in a new shool that is great, except it needs more diversity, but he can fix that. Spoken like a true progressive! The agenda is always right, it is the people that fail.

Diversity -- a perfect example of liberal-progressive insanity

You must patiently watch this entire video to the end and pay attention to what he's saying.

I can't make up my mind whether this guy is for real or or whether he's being sarcastic, but it's a wonderful example of the liberal-progressive mindset.

The Corrpution Chronicles says the economy remains in shambles yet Obama keeps wasting taxpayer dollars expanding an already bloated U.S. government, this month launching a new office to help build a "diverse and inclusive workforce" at all federal agencies.
 
The new Office of Diversity and Inclusion will ensure that the entire U.S. government develops comprehensive strategies to drive and integrate diversity and inclusion practices.  It will assist the different agencies in building a workforce that "respects individual and organizational cultures" by examining policy options, data trends and employee survey findings.
 
The goal is to eliminate demographic group imbalances in targeted occupations and improve workforce diversity.  To attain this, special initiatives have been created targeting specific groups, including Hispanics, African Americans, American Indians, women and gays and lesbians.  The idea is to create a workforce that truly reflects America’s diversity, according to the Obama Administration.
 
In fact, the Obama executive order creating the new agency assures that it will promote the federal workplace as a model of equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion.  It will also establish a coordinated government-wide initiative to promote the cause.  The investment is worth it because a commitment to equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion is critical for the federal government as an employer, according to the commander-in-chief.
 
Obama’s new plan will force agencies to identify and remove barriers to equal employment opportunities that may exist in the federal government’s recruitment, hiring, promotion, retention, professional development and training policies and practices.

Totally bogus!  The only people under-represented in the federal government are white males.  Read this and get the REAL facts . . .

What's amazing is that Barack Obama signed an executive order on August 18th directing federal officials to design a government-wide strategy for making the federal workforce more diverse.

Here we are, just eight days later and the plan is produced, documented, and implemented -- but in two-and-one-half years, Obama has been unable to submit a budget.
