Govt. Nuke Program Brainwashed White Male Employees at Tax-Funded Retreat

Exhibiting qualities like 'hard work' may be 'devastating' for minority coworkers...

One of the federal government’s nuclear research programs reportedly hosted a taxypayer-funded, three-day retreat last year to deconstruct “white male culture” and force white, male employees to confront their “privilege.”

Sandia National Laboratories, which is in charge of designing some of the U.S.’s nuclear weaponry, sent its white male employees to a luxury resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico last year, according to a report by Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth & Poverty at the Discovery Institute.

According to documents uncovered by Rufo, they were required to attend a workshop titled “White Men’s Caucus on Eliminating Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia in Organizations.”

In the training, led by a company called “White Men as Full Diversity Partners,” male employees were told that symbols such as the “MAGA hat” represent white supremacy, and that they are intrinsically associated with “white male culture.”

Among the other toxic “white male” qualities they were told to rid themselves of: “rugged individualism,” a “can-do attitude,” “hard work” and “striving towards success.”

These traits are “devastating” to the workforce because they inherently lead to “lowered quality of life at work and home, reduced life expectancy, unproductive relationships, and high stress” in women and in ethnic minorities.

To combat this inequality, the employees were directed to write letters to women and minorities about their experience at the retreat, and to apologize for participating in a toxic culture created to sustain white male privilege.

In at least one session, the employees were forced to repeat affirmations against white privilege so as to “accept their complicity” in the “white male system,” according to Rufo.

A spokesperson for Sandia National Laboratories refused to confirm or deny whether its employees attended the event, but said in a statement that the program has always prioritized “inclusion and diversity,” and that it seeks to welcome “multiple perspectives” and “different working styles.”
