DEI Hits The VA: White Vets Are NOT Allowed in New Programs, Rep. Gaetz Demands Oversight Hearing


Get ready for this one, folks.

Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz is making moves and continuing on his warpath against DEI.

He sent letters the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), demanding explanations.

Why?

Well, reports surfaced showing that the VA is running anti-White race-based training programs and workshops that specifically state that White veterans are NOT allowed to be involved in.

Gaetz isn’t having it and wants answers.

Let’s see the VA try to wriggle out of this one.

Rep. Matt Gaetz wasn’t having any of that disrespect towards veterans.

Daily Caller reports:

Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz will send letters Tuesday to the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) calling on them to explain reporting that shows the VA is offering race-based training programs and workshops that exclude white veterans.

The Daily Caller first obtained copies of the letter, which reference a Monday report by the Washington Free Beacon. A review by the outlet found that the programs are taking place in at least four states, Michigan, California, Minnesota and Ohio, according to the VA’s website. In the letters, Gaetz calls on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Michael Bost to hold an oversight hearing by his Committee and calls on VA Secretary Denis McDonough to provide him with information regarding the report.

“I am writing to you today to request an oversight hearing by your Committee into a number of outrageous, race-based ‘support’ groups operating at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. As we both know, the VA is tasked with the critical mission of providing support to American veterans, and I believe that the attached Washington Free Beacon article will shock you. That article outlines a number of examples of purported ‘support groups’ that exclude white American veterans from participation, in violation of law and the Constitution,” Gaetz wrote in of the letters.

“These programs appear to be popping up nationwide, and appear on the official VA website, indicating a serious policy and oversight problem at the VA. No federal resources, let alone sponsorship by the agency itself, should be given to these discriminatory programs. My attached oversight letter to the VA went out today as well. I would be very pleased for any help your leadership position can provide here, on behalf of American vets of all races,” he added.

Here’s Rep. Gaetz continuing to call out DEI:

Here’s a tweet that Gaetz pointed out, stating it’s from a military hire that is literally in charge of a diversity and inclusion program:
