Howie Carr writes for the Boston Herald about one negative consequence of diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

Here in Boston, we know just how corrupt the FBI can be.

For instance, framing innocent men for murders they did not commit, or providing explosives for gangsters to use to kill reporters.

Or taking payoffs to set up informants to be rubbed out by serial-killing cocaine dealers, and then after committing such crimes being promoted to director of the FBI training academy in Quantico, Virginia….

I could go on and on about the Boston FBI office. But you get the picture.

Still, as bad and as overrated as the G-men have always been, they’re worse now.

And the feds’ latest descent into abject incompetence and corruption can be summed up in three letters — DEI.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

DEI — the same three letters that have destroyed Harvard University and all academia, the airline industry, medicine and just about every other damn institution that once made America a First World nation.

That’s the verdict of a new report by House Republicans, based on testimony from current and retired agents, many of them supervisors.

“The FBI,” the Judiciary committee reports, “has lost its way in a toxic culture of dysfunction unable to find the courage to remedy recruitment and selection processes that have become self-destructive.”

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Claudine Gay could not be reached for comment.

“The FBI does not appear to be getting experienced, ‘mature’ candidates, such as the former cop, former military person, the professional career person, the lawyer, accountant or engineer.”

Sound familiar? The U.S. Army has the same problem. The brass can’t seem to recruit anybody who can do a push-up. Who in their right mind wants to risk their life by joining an organization run by entitled, shiftless incompetents who despise them?
