Severe retards and loonies sought to staff the DOJ 5

More than they have already? Seems so.

Christian Adams tells this hilarious story:

The PJ Tatler has obtained documents from the Justice Department detailing efforts to recruit attorneys and staff … who have “psychiatric disabilities” or “severe intellectual disabilities.” On May 31, 2012, Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez issued a directive to affirmatively recruit people with these “targeted disabilities.”

This DOJ policy does not merely involve prohibitions against discrimination, but rather the documents reveal deliberate recruitment efforts to hire as attorneys and staff for the Department of Justice people suffering from psychiatric disorders and intellectual disabilities. Moreover, applicants can “self-identify” their disability by means of the “Standard Form 256, Self Identification Disability.”

Those with “targeted disabilities” may be hired through a “non-competitive” appointment. That means they don’t have to endure the regular civil service competition among applicants, but can be plucked from the stack of resumes and hired immediately instead.

According to the documents, those with these “targeted disabilities” may be hired “before the position is advertised” and even “before the position’s closing date.” Moreover, lawyers with psychiatric disabilities and “severe intellectual” disabilities receive a waiver from the requirement that a new DOJ employee have practiced law for one year before being hired.

How did they ever become lawyers?

Anyway, we like the plan. We think it’s a great idea for the DOJ to hire lunatics and retards. The less able the Obama-Holder DOJ is to carry out its unjust, iniquitous, corrupt policies*, the better for the nation.

    Your interpretation of DOJ policy is incorrect, as is the “Tatler”. This is typical Internet junk journalism. I hope you aren’t a Republican. We don’t need any more of you idiots making us look bad.

    • Jillian Becker

      If we are incorrect, Charles, put us right. Quote accurately what we have “misinterpreted”.

      Who are the “we” who don’t need any more of us idiots making you look bad? If you are a Democrat you look bad anyway. Or do you speak for the DOJ? On its staff, are you? If so, you couldn’t look much worse.

      And yes, many of us are Republicans and/or Libertarians. We oppose Collectivism, Redistributionism, Socialism, Statism, the Left, whatever you want to call it.

      Fortunately or unfortunately, not many of us are idiot enough to be hired by the DOJ.

    The thing is, once they’re on the federal payroll, they’ll be hard to remove, even if there is a change of administration. “Discrimination!”

      Right. So maybe this is their way of sabotaging the next administration – they’ll be stuck with these people.

    Or maybe so they will never notice what’s going on, and if they do figure it out and blow the whistle, Holder can just point out their mental problems and get off the hook.
