And yet part and parcel of American life.  You want to work for the state of California?  Loyalty oath.  Signed on your first day with HR.

9/11 created a lot of that shiat

Oh, most of it actually dates to the "red scares" of the 1950's and 1960's, such as the loyalty oath for California.  I doubt that is a post-9/11 thing.

For me it was. Working for CA in 97, no oath. Coming back in mid 2000s, oath. Not allowed to opt out or legalese out of it either. They would simply un-hire you.

I didn't Google it the first time, but I should have.  I was right.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leverin​g​_Act

The Levering Act is a law enacted by the U.S. state of California in 1950. It requires state employees to subscribe to a loyalty oath that specifically disavowed radical beliefs. It was aimed in particular at employees of the University of California. Several teachers lost their positions when they refused to sign loyalty oaths.

Beginning with the onset of the Cold War in the years following World War II, government officials at all levels of government in the United States feared Soviet infiltration that might influence public opinion and frustrate the efforts of the United States to counter Soviet influence. Several laws passed and programs established during the Truman administration enhanced the federal government's authority to investigate those suspected of disloyalty and, in particular, to prevent their employment by the federal government. Individual states enacted similar anti-subversion statutes.


My guess is that somebody screwed up in 1997 (or maybe you didn't work directly for the state then, but for a local agency?).  It's not like anybody cared in 1997 or today about this shiat.

The dictionary disagrees with you.
