Sandia Labs Goes Nuclear On Employee Who Sparked Internal Revolt Over Critical Race Theory
Sandia Labs – America’s premiere government-funded nuclear weapons design lab, has taken aggressive action against an employee, Casey Peterson, who produced a viral video “pushing back on the narrative of modern systemic racism and white privilege.”
Here’s the long and short of it via Christopher Rufo – director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth & Poverty, who has directed four documentaries for PBS, Netflix and international television – and has declared ‘war’ on critical race theory.
On Tuesday, Peterson made a YouTube video “pushing back on the narrative of modern systemic racism and white privilege.”
The video quickly hit 10,000 views within the labs and dozens of Sandia employees contacted Peterson to express support.
Within hours, Sandia executives dispatched a counterintelligence team to lock Peterson out of the network and scrub his communications from internal servers …
… By the afternoon, executives were panicking about the brewing rebellion placed Peterson on paid administrative leave …
… This is the first explicit rebellion against critical race theory in the federal government—and the coalition is growing. “We need to completely rip [critical race theory] out of Sandia root and stem,” Peterson says. “It is cancer and we need to get it out of the labs right now.”
… Keep this in mind: Sandia Labs is a federally-funded research agency and designs America’s nuclear weapons. Senator @HawleyMO and @SecBrouillette have launched an inspector general investigation, …
… Here’s the bottom line: this is the first shot in the rebellion against critical race theory in the federal government. Casey Peterson has taken a courageous stand and the Inspector General must conduct a full investigation of Sandia Labs—and hold executives accountable.
We are opening up a multi-front war against critical race theory in the federal government: (1) investigative reporting to expose the truth; (2) internal rebellions to increase the pressure; (3) inspector general investigations; (4) laying the groundwork for an executive order. ||08/28/2020
