The White House over the weekend announced that Ben Labolt, a press adviser to former President Barack Obama, had been promoted to White House Communications Director.

In doing so, however, they revealed their focus when it comes to choosing people for high-ranking roles in the administration.

“Ben is making history,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre proudly announced to reporters. 

“As you know, we believe, here in the Biden-Haris White House, that representation matters,” she continued. “He will be the first openly gay Communications Director, which is very, very important indeed.”

Ben Labolt is Gay – And That is What’s Important

Karine Jean-Pierre’s comments on Labolt’s hiring left many viewers baffled. Why is it important for a ‘communications director’ to be openly gay? Not just gay, but openly gay.

It’s a mystery.

Worse, hiring people or not hiring people based on their race, gender, or sexual orientation was illegal once upon a time.

Instead, you have the White House proudly proclaiming the importance of being gay for a very important and high-paying position from the briefing room for all the world to hear.

Can you imagine if a Republican president were making a new hire and their press secretary announced that the person was heterosexual which is ‘very, very important indeed’?

Labolt, don’t get me wrong, has the overall qualifications to do the job for a Democrat administration. But how many straight people were passed over for the job because they didn’t meet the desired demographics?

If somebody else had been hired and an ‘openly gay’ candidate was passed over, you could bet your ass there would be lawsuits filed for violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The Diversity Hire Administration

If anybody would know about being an unqualified diversity hire, it’d be Karine Jean-Pierre. She is an idiot savant, minus the savant part.

On the daily, she fumbles her way around the podium, giant binder in hand to guide her even as she fails to answer basic questions. Recently, she struggled with the word ‘Canada.’

In a sane world, Jean-Pierre wouldn’t be conveying messages on behalf of the leader of the free world. But she’s black, she’s a woman, and she’s gay. And that is very, very important indeed.

Speaking of ‘woman’ we now have a sitting Supreme Court Justice who can’t define what a woman is because she’s not a biologist.

Ketanji Brown Jackson doesn’t know what a woman is but she now sits on the highest court in the land. Why? Because President Biden openly advertised that he would make a nomination to the court based on their skin color and gender. It had to be a black woman.

Which is discriminatory. And illegal.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg also checks the right box for a diversity hire. Sure he’s as white as the driven snow, but damn it he’s gay, and that’s what matters.

In fact, he’s so super-woke that he took nearly two months for paternity leave while America was mired in a supply chain crisis. How’s that hire working out?

Supply chain issues persist. Flight cancellations. Train derailments.

Vice President Kamala Harris was chosen to run alongside Biden because of the optics she provides. And she continues to provide material that would be absolutely hilarious if it weren’t so sad.

Buttigieg, Harris, Jackson, and Jean-Pierre are all borderline incompetent when it comes to handling their jobs. They were chosen exclusively based on certain characteristics. And they are all failures.

Best of luck to Labolt. Let’s hope he doesn’t fall into the same category of failed diversity hires.
