Your DHS professionals in action: maturity is a relative thing

It’s nice to see that the women’s movement in this country, at least on the Left, has come so far that they now feel free to subject their male colleagues to the same frat-house disdain and abuse they and their forebears endured:

Janet Napolitano-run Homeland Security treated male staffers like lapdogs, federal discrimination lawsuit charges

A blistering federal discrimination suit accuses agency honcho Janet Napolitano of turning the department into a female-run “frat house” where male staffers were banished to the bathrooms and routinely humiliated.

James Hayes Jr., who now is New York’s top Homeland Security cop, claims Napolitano filled top spots in Washington, D.C., with two of her gal pals who were bent on tormenting male employees.

The suit identified them as Dora Schriro, who is now running the city Department of Correction, and Suzanne Barr, the chief of staff for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Soon after Schriro and Barr were hired in January 2009, male staffers were treated like lapdogs, Hayes claims.

Barr “moved the entire contents of the offices of three employees, including name plates, computers and telephones, to the men’s bathroom at ICE headquarters,” the suit says.

Barr also stole a male staffer’s BlackBerry and fired off a message to his female supervisor indicating that he “had a crush on [her] and fantasized about her,” Hayes claims.

Sometimes, Barr took a more direct approach. In one case, she called a male colleague in his hotel room and screamed at him using sexually humiliating language, the suit says.

Hayes claims that after he reported the abuse to the Equal Employment Opportunity office, Napolitano launched a series of misconduct investigations against him.

And this is the mindset of people charged with the solemn responsibility of protecting us from another 9/11.

I feel more secure, don’t you?

Now, of course, we don’t know the truth of Mr. Hayes’ claims; he could just be an embittered ex-employee who’s just making stuff up for some reason. But it rings true. For some reason, and to put it bluntly, many on the Left lack maturity. Whether it’s vandalizing the White House or excusing people who poop on police cars — and now, it seems, workplace sexual harassment– time and again Our Betters on the Left (all bow) seem to think it’s okay for them to do things they would denounce as crimes against nature, were they committed by Republicans.

That’s not to say Republicans and conservatives don’t have their problem children, too. (John Ensign, anyone? Larry Craig?) But we, at least, usually police our own and send the offenders away. That’s because conservatives recognize that this behavior is juvenile, wrong, and unworthy of someone granted the public trust and the dignity of office.

For many on the Left, that seems to be a feature, not a bug.

    Don’t you know…don’t you know? The border is more secure because Napolitano said so! This is what we get when we elect folks with the minds of third graders. And if Il Duce II wins another term…as they say in Brooklyn…fugge-abou-it!

  2. Bill says:

    Also, I can’t remember, was it John Ensign or Larry Craig that left the scene of an accident and staggered home in a drunken stupper all while he left behind a woman, in the prime of her life, to die by drowning? Perhaps the great folks at N.O.W. can answer that for me. Or which one of these two left behind a ‘stain’ on a young interns dress and lied about it? Still hearing crickets from those good ‘ol gals at N.O.W.!

    Don’t look for anyone in this administration, from top dog (Il Douche) to lap dog (anyone below JanNap or Eric the Liar, including the media) to be gone unless there is a reason for the Paranoids to suspect disloyalty (loyalty is almost as important as ideology).

    And they can always use the excuse, “We can’t be discriminating against men! There is no such thing because sexual discrimination laws were designed to protect WOMEN, not men!!! (Sound familiar, Eric?)

    Of course, since Hayes, Jr. has filed a lawsuit, you can count on him ending up in prison or taking a back-walk on a slab somewhere. It’s the Chicago way.

    @ Bill:

    How on Earth could I forget Ted Kennedy, or his partner in the “waitress sandwich,” Chris Dodd?

    Sounds like DHS has an unhealthy dose of insecurity and immaturity both. BTW, is there a Mr. Napolitano or need I ask?

    @Drew: Probably, but we’ll never know her name…
