Becoming Venezuela– Team Obama Announces "Marxist" Purge of GOP Civil Servants
Here’s the latest on the socializing of America…
The Obama Administration’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to purge the federal government of Republican civil servants to purify the federal bureaucracy.
Rush Limbaugh reported this today:
Via the Rush Limbaugh website:
RUSH: Yesterday on this program, in reporting the absolute collapse of the energy sector in energy colossus Venezuela I said to you people that I keep an eye on Venezuela because that’s where we’re headed. Get this. The Obama administration intends to purge Republicans from the civil service retroactive to five years ago starting in the year 2010. I found this at RedState.com: “Via Instapundit comes word that the federal government’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to purge the federal government of Republican civil servants all in the name of purifying the federal bureaucracy.” I’ve got the copy of the Office of Personnel Management memo right here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. I will explain how this works later on in the program, but I just wanted to get this out there.
Here’s the relevant paragraph from here John Berry, who is the director of the Office of Personnel Management:
“Beginning January 1, 2010, agencies must seek prior approval from OPM before they can appoint a current or recent political appointee to a competitive or non-political excepted service position at any level under the provisions of title 5, United States Code. OPM will review these proposed appointments to ensure they comply with merit system principles and applicable civil service laws. I have delegated decision making authority over these matters to career Senior Executives at OPM to avoid any hint of political influence.”
“The memorandum goes on to apply this change to civil servants who were political appointees in the last five years, in effect freezing these employees out of other positions, denying them promotions, and forcing them out of their jobs.” This is what Marxists do. This is a purge. This is typical of Marxist regimes, totalitarian regimes. I’ll tell you what. I hope the next Republican administration learns this lesson, because there are going to be thousands of Maoists sleazing their way into the bureaucracy after whatever number of years that Obama is in the White House. The bureaucracy is being polluted with these people. And just as the Democrats and Obama are going to purge all Republicans from the civil service, you know, some people might say, “Well, you have a class-action suit on this.”
