Critical Race Theory: Neo-Communism in American Society

by Mustang

An ancient Chinese philosopher once advised, “Know your enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be in peril.  When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal.  If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril.”

A good battlefield commander will choose the time and place of the fight, but long before he arrives at that decision, he must know his own strengths and weaknesses and know his opponent.  What are the enemy’s goals?  How does he intend to achieve them?  For what purpose?

America — do you know who you are and what you stand for?

We have known the enemy’s goals for 174 years.  Many of us have first-or-second-hand knowledge of the enemy’s intentions.  We, our parents, or our grandparents fought the enemy for at least 72-years … and we witnessed the enemy’s defeat.  The enemy then was communism.  Its proponents were the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.  The fight necessitated giving up thousands of our loved ones.  It was a hard-fought battle that resulted in well over 100-million deaths.

The fight was started by two men who died long before any of us was born.  Karl Marx (1818-1883) — a self-loathing Jew, was raised in an upper-middle-class family, wealthy enough to send Karl to the University to study law, where he whiled away his time drinking, dallying, failing, and then taking up philosophy. Marx’s partner, Fredrich Engels (1820-1895), was the scion of a wealthy industrialist.  Of the two, perhaps Engels had the most significant input to the Communist Manifesto (1847), and Engels may have been the more radical of the two. Both men, while raised as protestants, later professed atheism.  Their atheism makes perfect sense because these two men produced the world’s wickedest ideology.  Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels laid the foundation for humanity’s worst suffering; it continues today.

Marx and Engels

Despite the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 or China’s adoption of communism’s lighter side, its threat remains.  Russia and China today remain adversaries.  The leaders of these two countries have softened their approach, but many of their philosophical strategies and tactics remain unchanged.

The timetable for achieving worldwide domination has shifted, however.  After the fall of the Soviet Union, communist leaders realized that it would take them much longer to achieve their goals.  The delay involves a process of retooling — starting over, as it were, to convince younger generations that the murder and suffering of tens of millions of people never actually happened.

The conversation has already shifted.  We no longer talk about communism, Marxism, Leninism, Stalinism, or Maoism.  We instead refer to these communist-inspired philosophies as human progress.  Progressivism is less objectionable.  A progressive-minded person, they argue, is admirable, worthy, caring, and humane.  The success of this argument is readily apparent by the number of modern nations (having repudiated national socialism in the mid-20th century) today embrace democratic socialism: the European Union, China, Russia, Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, and the United States of America.

The purpose of socialism is communism.

  • Vladimir Lenin

It does not matter how well you dress up a pig; it’s still a pig.  Whether you choose to use the word “Marxism” or “Progressivism,” this scheme only works by dividing human beings into classes and then setting them against one another.  Divide et impera.

The language used by Marxists tells us who they are.  In the early 20th century, the communists urged and fully expected the down-trodden workers to “Rise!  Seize the means of production” and “overthrow the capitalists!” Rise.  Seize.  Overthrow.  The problem for the Bolsheviks was that there was no popular uprising of workers — not in Russia, not in China, and certainly not in the United States.  There was no prevalent abandonment of life in Russia; the Russian Revolution was nothing more than a well-orchestrated coup d’état.

Nor was there a widespread abandonment of Chinese culture in 1949.  Communism came to China as a combination of two things: another coup d’état combined with a general weariness of government corruption by Chang Kai-shek, the nationalist leader at the time.

And yet, the result of both revolutions was similar: unfathomable human suffering in labor camps, public show trials that served as warnings to dissidents, retribution directed toward the families of dissidents, murder on an unbelievable scale, mass starvations … and in the end, more than 100-million dead.  What, then, recommends communism to anyone?

Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels were the authors of the world’s darkest days — and one would think that the world had had enough of it.  Why, then, has it reemerged in the 21st century?  Why, of all places, in the United States?

Communism was never compatible with American society.  The only classes in the United States were those devised by pseudo-intellectual academicians and government bureaucrats to push forward their various agendas.  No matter the circumstances of their birth, every American has always had the opportunity to rise above that station and pursue happiness and fulfillment as they, themselves, envisioned it.  Some of us made good decisions, some of us didn’t.  Some of us benefitted from education, hard work, and good citizenship, while some suffered the effects of laziness of mind and spirit, which consigned them to poverty and bitterness.  Others became victims of the Democratic party’s efforts to discriminate against them because of the color of their skin.

American society has never been a utopia — and the United States’ enlightened government never claimed a utopian goal.  Still, most Americans (not all, sadly) firmly believe in the American dream.  This uniquely American vision is the reason so many millions came to America.

Despite the 600,000 Americans who died in the quest to free all men from the filth of slavery, and even though these freedmen overwhelmingly supported republicanism for over 70 years, American blacks were fooled by a massive shift in political strategy within the Democratic Party.  It began around 1933 but went into full swing in the 1960s.

When Democrats realized black Americans would not be intimidated by the terror of white supremacist organizations, they found a new way to put the Negro in his place.  Rather than relegating Jim Crow to inferior status through segregation laws, Democrats offered him “free” benefits.  All Mr. Crow had to do to receive those benefits was to vote for Democratic politicians and accept their premise that blacks were in every way inferior to whites.  The Democrat’s success in this effort has been overwhelming — and there are few better examples of Marxism at work inside the United States than this.

If we wanted to understand why adults behave the way we do, look no further than their family structure and how they were raised.  When children grow into adulthood, their behavior reflects that of their parents.  What, then, do children learn from disorganized homes?  They know, and pass on to their children, all the undesirable characteristics of a stressed society: the relegation of women to roles of dependency, abandonment of children to one-parent enclaves within black-only tenements, rejection of education as a pathway to success, lack of self-respect or sense of self-worth, reliance on or addiction to harmful substances, and acceptance of the greatest discriminator of all — low expectation.  Our black communities have not yet tired of this horrendous treatment; in fact, they continue to embrace it.

Beginning in the late 1960s, radical sociologists and communist agitators Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven (at Columbia University) developed a strategy guaranteed to keep blacks enslaved to the good graces of the Democratic Party.  Remember, in 1966, Democrats controlled the White House and both houses of Congress.  There is no better description of their intent to create racial division and destroy American society than in their own words:

“Conservative Republicans are always ready to declaim the evils of public welfare, and they would probably be the first to raise a hue and cry.  But deeper and politically more telling conflicts would take place within the Democratic coalition … Whites – both working-class ethnic groups and many in the middle class – would be aroused against the ghetto poor, while liberal groups, which until recently have been comforted by the notion that the poor are few … would probably support the movement.  Group conflict, spelling political crisis for the local party apparatus, would thus become acute as welfare rolls mounted and the strains on local budgets became more severe.”

The preceding, then, was a reformulation of Marxist theory as it applied to life in the United States.  Since there was no class struggle in America, Cloward-Piven created one.  Gone was the original struggle between labor and capitalist industrialists, replaced with the beginning of identity (racial) politics.  This work continues today, redefined as progressive ideology and democratic socialism, along with an even more recent buzz phrase: Critical Race Theory (CRT).

This new invention first appeared in the early 1990s.  Initially viewed as just another academia/progressive “dingbat” theory, CRT has since become the default ideology of all of America’s institutions — from federal and state government agencies, public school systems, teacher’s colleges, and even within corporate board rooms. It’s easy enough to recognize.  Since the truth of it is bothersome to most Americans, as neo-Marxism, CRT proponents instead refer to it as diversity training, inclusion training, equity training, and social justice awareness programs.  Equity, for example, sounds sensible and is easily confused with the traditional American concept of equality.

There is no correlation between the two.  As proclaimed in the founding documents and civil war amendments, equality demands that we afford every citizen with the same opportunities.  It is the reason we have public schools, for example, and civil and voting rights legislation.  CRT advocates reject this notion, however.  To them, equal opportunity simply means white supremacy and the oppression of racial and ethnic minorities.  Something more is needed, they argue.

Equity demands the suspension of property rights, seizing wealth from those who earned it, and distributing that wealth to people of color.  One such advocate of this proposal is Cheryl Harris, a UCLA law professor; another is Boston University’s Ibram X. Kendi.  These morons demand the creation of a new federal agency called the Department of Anti-Racism — an independent agency with the power to nullify, veto, or abolish any law, including our Constitutional guarantees of free speech, expression, association, religion, the right to bear arms, or any behavior deemed by the department as insufficiently anti-racist.  According to Kendi, “In order to be sufficiently anti-racist, you also have to be anti-capitalist.”

Equity programs would end private property, end federalism, and subject earned income and investments to redistribution to those who just happen to have darker skin color than the rest of us.  So, what have the CRT advocates done so far?  Their behaviors so far have been mostly confined to brainwashing and propaganda.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation began conducting workshops on intersectional theory.  The Department of Homeland Security informed its white employees that they were guilty of mico-inequity and determined to re-socialize them into less “oppressive” behaviors.  The Treasury Department wanted its employees to know that their whiteness contributed to racism.  At the nuclear facility at Sandia Labs, white male executives were forced to attend a re-education camp where they learned that “white male culture” was comparable to the Klu Klux Klan — an institution formed, manned, and maintained by the Democratic Party.

To a real American, CRT is a bad omen for the future of American democracy, but it gets even worse in public schools, where children are systematically brainwashed to lament their own race — an indoctrination not unlike that which encourages young children to despise their natural sex.    In Philadelphia, a middle school forced its fifth-grade students to celebrate “black communism.” In Seattle, Washington, one teacher in-service program informed teachers that they are guilty of black children’s spiritual “murder.”

“Give me four years to teach the children, and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

  • Vladimir Lenin [Note 1]

Recognizing CRT for what it is, President Trump signed an executive order prohibiting CRT training within the federal government.  Joe Biden rescinded Trump’s order on his very first day in office.  Beyond President Trump’s actions, is anyone else in government pushing back against this new communist assault upon the American Republic?  The official answer is, for the most part, no.  I do not doubt that the good Americans subjected to this form of brainwashing will retain their core beliefs while avoiding any discussion on the merits (or lack of them) of CRT.  But maintaining core values while remaining silent about this new assault on American freedom simply will not do.  Not among officials, and not among everyday Americans, either.

Where is the repudiation of CRT?  Are these communist morons making genuine headway toward transforming our country into a new Soviet state?  While most Americans today, even conservatives, hesitate to speak openly about social, political, or racial issues, proponents of CRT have free reign to espouse their view without fear of any contradiction.  Have most Americans become intimidated, or have they simply dismissed the CRT argument as hogwash?  One pundit claims that the CRT bunch has constructed a rat trap argument: anyone who disagrees with CRT becomes evidence of white oppression.  It is a clever strategy, but will “normal” America let it proceed unchallenged?  My hope is that real Americans will loudly repudiate every notion that our nation was founded on racism and then renounce even louder every attempt to mount yet another communist coup d’état against our Constitutional form of government.

To defeat this “enemy,” — and that specific characterization of modern-day communists is accurate and proper, we must know the enemy, know their intents, and recognize their strategies for what they are.  To those who would suggest that Marxism is simply another political point of view, stop and realize that America’s repudiation of communism encompasses traditional precedents.  We real Americans renounce communism because of its harm to the entire world.  One-hundred million dead and still counting.  Fellow Americans — we are at war.  There can be little question that these CRT buffoons follow the same path as Stalin, Beria, Khrushchev, Mao, and Pol Pot.

Notes:

[1]  There are several similar statements in this vein attributed to Vladimir Lenin.  The most popular of these is “Give me a child for eight years, and it will be a Bolshevist forever.” According to Paul F. Boller, Jr., and John George at Oxford (1989), the attribution originated with J. Edgar Hoover in his testimony before Congress on 4 March 1966.  Boller/George believe that “it is doubtful” Lenin ever made this statement because, since it was attributed to him in 1923, several strokes during that year incapacitated him to the point where he did no serious writing.  Lenin, of course, died in January 1924.  The pronouncement “It is doubtful” doesn’t discount the statement, only questions whether he made it, possibly misattributed to 1923.  Since the source of the quote is J. Edgar Hoover, there is always room for doubt.

CA proposed ethnic curriculum – Chant to the Aztec deity of human sacrifice

 

The state board of education will vote on this Marxist curriculum next week: if it passes, it will install the principles of critical race theory and its related ideologies into the state’s 10,000 public schools, serving 6 million children.

While we focus on D.C and senile Biden, the march to distort history and radicalize our youth continues in high speed in California.

R. Tolteka Cuauhtin, the original co-chair, worked on the early American history material. In the references, he denounces the United States as a “Eurocentric, white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal, heteropatriarchal, and anthropocentric paradigm brought from Europe.”

In a related “mandala,” Cuauhtin claims that white Christians committed “theocide” against indigenous tribes, killing their gods and replacing them with Christianity. White settlers thus established a regime of “coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide.”

According to Cuauhtin, whites began “grabbing the land,” “hatching hierarchies,” and “developing for [whiteness],” which created “excess wealth” that “became the basis for the capitalist economy.” Whites continue to subject minorities to “domestication” and “zombification.”

Decentralize the public school system and give parents the $15,000 a year per child to choose their own education. Families deserve the chance to educate their kids—not subject them to this taxpayer-funded poison.

Here we go:

Revenge of the Gods

California’s proposed ethnic studies curriculum urges students to chant to the Aztec deity of human sacrifice.

 

Next week, the California Department of Education will vote on a new statewide ethnic studies curriculum that advocates for the “decolonization” of American society and elevates Aztec religious symbolism—all in the service of a left-wing political ideology.

The new program, called the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, seeks to extend the Left’s cultural dominance of California’s public university system, 50 years in the making, to the state’s entire primary and secondary education system, which consists of 10,000 public schools serving a total of 6 million students.

In theoretical terms, the new ethnic studies curriculum is based on the “pedagogy of the oppressed,” developed by Marxist theoretician Paolo Freire, who argued that students must be educated about their oppression in order to attain “critical consciousness” and, consequently, develop the capacity to overthrow their oppressors.

Following this dialectic, the model curriculum instructs teachers to help students “challenge racist, bigoted, discriminatory, imperialist/colonial beliefs” and critique “white supremacy, racism and other forms of power and oppression.” This approach, in turn, enables teachers to inspire their pupils to participate in “social movements that struggle for social justice” and “build new possibilities for a post-racist, post-systemic racism society.”

……..

The religious narrative is even more disturbing. Cuauhtin developed a related “mandala” claiming that white Christians committed “theocide” against indigenous tribes, killing their gods and replacing them with Christianity. White settlers thus established a regime of “coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide,” characterized by the “explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity.”

The solution, according to Cuauhtin and the ethnic studies curriculum, is to “name, speak to, resist, and transform the hegemonic Eurocentric neocolonial condition” in a posture of “transformational resistance.” The ultimate goal is to “decolonize” American society and establish a new regime of “countergenocide” and “counterhegemony,” which will displace white Christian culture and lead to the “regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity.”

…..

California parents should be concerned. Under the guise of “equity” and “empowerment,” activists within the public education system have developed this radical new curriculum in order to transform California schools into factories for left-wing political activism.

They have recast the United States as an oppressor nation that must be deconstructed and subverted through politics. The curriculum’s vision statement makes this aim explicit: it presents education not as a means of achieving competency, but as a “tool for transformation, social, economic, and political change, and liberation.”

Boston Schools suspend testing for advanced learning – too many Whites and Asians

 

And they wonder why the US educational standards are the worst for a 1st world country. Then they turn around and say we must lower standards while allowing schools to turn into businesses instead of education. Of course figuring out how to educate all the kids might be a better approach…….

A selective program for high-performing fourth, fifth and sixth graders in Boston has suspended enrollment due to the pandemic and concerns about equity in the program, GBH News has learned.

Superintendent Brenda Cassellius recommended the one-year hiatus for the program, known as Advanced Work Classes, saying the district would not proceed with the program for new students next year.

“There’s been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address,” Cassellius told GBH News. “There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be antiracist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”

New students will be admitted in the fourth grade by standards to be determined at the school level, according to a BPS spokesman.

There will be no new students admitted in the fifth or sixth grades, the spokesman said, but those already in advanced work will be allowed to continue.

A district analysis of the program found that more than 70 percent of students enrolled in the program were white and Asian, even though nearly 80 percent of all Boston public school students are Hispanic and Black.

Anne Boleyn now Black – New portrayal of history

 

Anyone who has been watching TV and Netflix has seen a dramatic change in the makeup of the cast who portrays various characters.  Commercials themselves have now become mind bending challenges to our cultural expectations.

This is a sensitive topic and I am sure this will be controversial. But since when did Queen Anne become Black? Are we to defy a reality that Anne just wasn’t Black? And for film? I give you a flashback as to how we got here.

More of the cancel culture? Is this the “history” of the future?

 

Variety can reveal the first look of “Queen & Slim” actor Jodie Turner-Smith as Tudor queen Anne Boleyn — the most notorious of Henry VIII’s wives, best known for her untimely demise by execution — in three-part psychological thriller “Anne Boleyn” for ViacomCBS-backed U.K. broadcaster Channel 5. The show wrapped production on location in Yorkshire in December, and is set to air later this year.

Produced by Fable Pictures and Sony Pictures Television, “Anne Boleyn” garnered headlines last year for Turner-Smith’s casting, which marks one of a handful of times a Black actor has portrayed a major royal figure on a British terrestrial broadcaster. More recently, Sophie Okonedo played Queen of England Margaret, who was married to Henry VI, in the BBC’s “The Hollow Crown.” She starred opposite Benedict Cumberbatch.

Oscars new requirements for ‘Best Picture’ – includes cognitive disability, deaf

This should insure mediocrity in the film industry. “People with cognitive or physical disabilities, or who are deaf or hard of hearing” counts for inclusion in the requirements to be in the “Best Picture” category. Apparently Walmart comes to the film industry.

The diversity and inclusion initiative has been a heavy focus for the Oscars the past few years, shown by the expansive membership initiative. Today, as part of the Academy Aperture 2025 initiative, AMPAS announced new representation and inclusion standards in order to be eligible in the best picture category.

For the 94th and 95th Oscars ceremonies, scheduled for 2022 and 2023, a film will submit a confidential Academy Inclusion Standards form to be considered for best picture. Beginning in 2024, for the 96th Oscars, a film submitting for best picture will need to meet the inclusion thresholds by meeting two of the four standards.

The Failure of Education – America’s war on its children

 

The Failure of Education

America’s war on its children

by Mustang

If (fill in the blank) isn’t working out to your expectations, then all you have to do is throw more money at it. That’s the message we regularly receive from people who make their money from selling “education.” But, is it true?  Of course not.

The American education system is an utter failure and has been for decades, and there is no more significant proof of that than observing today’s young adults.  They have no academic skills beyond cheating on tests; they lack essential knowledge about our nation’s history or even their own states. They are unable to comprehend cause and effect relationships, and they cannot reason.  If our education system is the doctor, then we’ve killed the patient.

Educationalist (a term I use in the most disparaging manner possible) Kate Barrington wants us to know about the American education system’s top fifteen failures.  None of her “failures” represent the underlying problem of American schools, but here’s what she identified as her most significant concerns:

    1. Insufficient government funding
    2. Charter schools siphon away money from public schools
    3. Teachers aren’t making enough money
    4. Too many teachers are fired for political reasons
    5. There is too much bullying going on in schools 
    6. Students are “too poor” to learn
    7. Schools are over-crowded
    8. Students are too anxious and hyper-active to learn
    9. Insufficient parental involvement

She never once mentioned political brainwashing imposed on every child in public schools, never said anything about the costly athletic programs that take away time and money from academic curricula, never mentioned the dismal results of “high stakes” testing, or the fact that students receive no training in civics education, are taught revisionist history, or that they are bored to the point of tears in the classroom.  

Ms. Barrington didn’t say that our children cannot construct a proper sentence, much less a paragraph, or that an average first-year high school student can only read at the fifth-grade level and cannot perform algebraic computations or has no interest in the wonder of science.

She also never mentioned that the United States (federal and state expenditures) spends, on average, $800-billion on educational programs EACH YEAR.  That figure approximates $15,000.00 annually for each child in elementary and secondary schools.  Maybe we shouldn’t focus so much on what we spend on American education — perhaps we should be asking what we’re getting as a return on that investment.  Are we getting smarter kids who, within a few years, are knocking them dead in the corporate structure, on Wall Street, as engineers, as scientists?

No — actually, American kids (including those graduating from college with a four-year degree) are mediocre compared to the rest of the civilized world.  Forty years after the publication of A Nation at Risk, a ground-breaking report by the National Commission on Excellence, America’s kids are dumber than ever despite the doubling of our expenditures on education.  

Constructing more schools does not equate to better education — it only means more children per year are less competitive globally.  What other conclusions can a rational person make when more than two-thirds of the student population cannot demonstrate mastery in grade-level mathematics and science, reading, or even understanding the history of their own ancestors?

Here’s an interesting statistic: 85% of our nation’s high school graduates each year are unqualified to enter college as freshmen without substantial remediation.

According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, the average expenditure worldwide is around $9,800 per student annually.  Around the world, then, nations who spend far less educating their children are producing young adults who can (and do) read, who can communicate well in writing, who understand complex mathematics, and are geared toward careers in science and engineering.

Equally important, we must address the question of whether America’s young adults are as well-adjusted psychologically as their “other world” cohorts.  There does not appear to be any evidence to support such a claim.  Considering high incidents of violence in schools and throughout local communities, the opposite seems right. America’s young adult is maladjusted, and if there is not a trend toward psychopathic abnormality, it certainly seems that way.  

What, then, should we deduce?  Should we conclude that in exchange for $800-billion annually, we are getting psychologically damaged young adults?  As young adults, our children not only do not know who they are but also don’t care.  

Our young adults do not understand that the rights they enjoy extend to every other citizen, as well — so supporting such notions that they must silence a citizen who has different views from their own — forcibly, if necessary — tells us that our education system has grown at least two (maybe three) generations of dangerously maladjusted human beings.  Moreover, they are irrational in thinking that such behavior benefits a healthy society.

America is getting no bang for its buck.  Rather than demanding more money (to waste), perhaps reduced spending is a better plan.  Pay teachers less money, not more.  Stop pretending that high school football programs are equal in importance to science and mathematics.  Stop spending hundreds of millions of dollars on textbooks that facilitate revisionist brainwashing or communicate anti-white racial biases.

When compared to the children raised in third-world countries, our children are stupid, psychotic, and socially inept.  Is this our return on our ever-increasing investment in the American education system?  One notable scientist suggested, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”  We attribute this quotation to Albert Einstein’s Parable of Quantum Insanity.  Perhaps the educationalists should make a note of it.

Angela Davis: “Capitalism is racial capitalism”

 

They are coming out of the woodwork. Those that have been promulgating the destruction of our country and we need to pay attention. Decades of their hard work is coming to fruition. We were warned.  Angela, an avowed Marxist has been spinning her wares in colleges educating our youngins in the finer points of revolution.

Educator and activist Angela Davis (1944-) became known for her involvement in a politically charged murder case in the early 1970s. Influenced by her segregated upbringing in Birmingham, Alabama, Davis joined the Black Panthers and an all-black branch of the Communist Party as a young woman. She became a professor at UCLA, but fell out of favor with the administration due to her ties. Davis was charged with aiding the botched escape attempt of imprisoned black radical George Jackson, and served roughly 18 months in jail before her acquittal in 1972. After spending time traveling and lecturing, Davis returned to the classroom as a professor and authored several books.

 

She hasn’t mellowed. The latest:

 

Scroll down a paragraph at the link for an interview that reveals more at

Subtext:

In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera’s Steve Clemons last week, veteran American Angela Davis offered some crucial insights into the meaning of the Black Lives Matter rebellion, its place in history and the strategic challenges it faces. In the interview, she honors “the impact of these amazing gatherings that have happened everywhere in the world in response to the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery and Tony McDade and Rayshard Brooks and others,” and considers how this movement might transform American institutions.

……

“Of course, the real work happens after the dramatic demonstrations … what we’re going to have to do is to take up each institution, schools for example. The demand to get cops out of schools is so important because schools, especially in Black neighborhoods and neighborhoods of other communities of color, have begun to replicate the environment of police stations and prisons. So this is the beginning, I’m hoping, of a long process of self-examination and transformation of the institutions that constitute society.

“And I want to talk about the importance of understanding the impact of global capitalism, because that is often the elephant in the room that is largely responsible for the seemingly perpetual existence of racism. Capitalism is racial capitalism, and I think we need to confront that today and move in the direction of envisioning and hopefully building a socialist society.”

…..

On U.S. electoral politics

“I have many critiques, of course, of the Republican Party, particularly given its turn toward white nationalism and racism and misogyny. But I think the Democratic Party is also very problematic, especially in its connection with global and corporate capitalism. I don’t think we can assume that any candidate from that party, much less the one who is running now, will lead us in the radical direction I think we should be moving in. However … it is absolutely essential to vote. It is through the electoral process that we will oust the existing president.

 

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

The Progressives and how they are treating us ‘little people’

 

I am just sitting back watching the absurdity of how those who judge us with the low sloping foreheads are getting treated during this “pandemic.”

Since my retirement community where I live has a so called Nursing home as part of its continuing care, we are essentially ‘Locked down” in our apartments. Our previously delicious meals are now delivered and placed on our door knobs in the prescribed black boxes.

Amazon Prime is running the Sopranos…. I am into it at about the 20 hour mark. The world and its morality right now seems to share much in common. My cynicism grows. Just explaining where this intrepid blogger is at.  Here we go:

Although Harvard is a tax-exempt, nonprofit university, its $40.9 billion endowment is worth more than the valuation of many large companies, such as AirBnB and Lyft. Its endowment is also worth more than the gross domestic product of some small countries, including Bahrain and Iceland.

 

 

More craziness from the “Progressive” democrat leadership. This in the form of education. After all, they can’t give one inch in allowing the public schools possibly to lose one single student.

And that my friends is the best of the swamp I could find today.

 

Muslim Sorority arrives at Kansas State U. – Gov. has requested more ‘refugees’ for 2020

 

Our next generation of Muslim imports coming along to birth potential terrorists. Omar must be very happy. In a heart warming video Omar embraces her new activists. An as an aside, what it wrong with the Kansas Governor and the citizens of good old Kansas?

Greek sororities don’t abide by the sharia, so assimilating and joining a kufr sorority is not an option for devout Muslims.

Five years after Mu Delta Alpha was first introduced at the University of Texas at Dallas, the Muslim-based sorority has arrived at Wichita State.

Saniya Ahmed

Saniya Ahmed, a junior studying health science at WSU, started the endeavor to bring Mu Delta Alpha to Wichita.

Ahmed grew up in Wichita. As an young student who went to all of the university’s elementary events, she said she saw WSU as her second home. But when she began college, she had trouble reestablishing that second home feeling.

So, Ahmed did what many college students do. She looked into joining Greek life. But as she went to the informationals and did her research, she said she couldn’t find one that called to her personally.

“I really wanted it, but I just felt like I would have to compromise a part of myself to fit in,” Ahmed said. “A part of Greek life is about finding your home, and you can’t really be at home if you feel like you have to compromise a part of yourself

Ahmed said Mu Delta Alpha’s current mission is to focus on educating the community.

“We took that upon ourselves to make sure that we have an educational piece at every event that we host,” Ahmed said. “We are providing that opportunity for other students who might not know a lot about Islam, or might not have ever engaged before with the Muslim — to be able to utilize the resources we offer, but also ask us questions to clarify what they’ve understood.”

[CS: In Islam this is known as dawah and is used to recruit converts to Islam. As for clarifying what someone else has understood, that is called taqiyyah in Islam. Or lying. And will typically center around the meaning of jihad, the second class status of women in Islam, and the brutalities of sharia. All to be whitewashed as “misunderstandings”.]

Ahmed said that while Mu Delta Alpha is a Muslim-based organization, students do not have to be Muslim to join. The organization is open to members of all different faiths.

Other than than that, all is well in the swamp.

Brits Labour Party plans to abolish and confiscate private schools

 

Best hustle out to your local theatre and catch “Downton Abby” for a view of the last vestige of the once great Great Britain. If Brexit was a problem for the UK and Boris Johnson, let’s look at what Corbyn’s Labor party has in store-

Nigel Farage: “I’ve no doubt, Mr McDonnell, you all want us to be dragged down to the bottom in your new Marxist state.”

Boris Johnson

Leaders of elite private schools have vented outrage over Labour’s plan to abolish them, branding the policy “incredulous” [sic] and an “act of unprecedented vandalism”.

Jeremy Corbyn’s party voted at their conference to integrate all private schools into the state sector if they win the next election.

….

“It doesn’t feel like I’m living in the UK any more,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Properties and funds held by private schools would be “redistributed democratically and fairly” across the country’s educational institutions as part of the reforms.

Private schools’ charitable status would also be scrapped and universities forced to limit their intake of privately educated students to just 7 per cent – the same proportion as in the wider population.

Boris Johnson also called it a “pointless attack” on the education system, adding that it was based on a “long-buried socialist ideology”.

Mr Adshead, head of the fee-paying Old Vicarage School in Derbyshire, said: “For me it seems quite incredulous [sic] that in 2019 I’m discussing whether my private land will be seized and then redistributed.” More at Independent UK

How far behind are we?

Kansas Library board undecided about sex crime checks for story tellers

 

Library board can’t agree on sex crime checks proposed after drag queen story event.  So goes the headline. Perverse to say the least. Setting aside the issue of decent role models for our kids, do we really not care if sex offenders are interacting with our kids? Parents! Board! What is wrong with you!

A proposal to background-check people for past sex offenses before they are allowed to make presentations at Wichita libraries was put on hold Tuesday, after a split in the board between those who want a complete ban on sex offenders and those who want staff to have some leeway.

The policy originated in a backlash against a drag queen story time almost a year ago at the Advanced Learning Library and has been criticized by the leader of the LGBT-rights group Equality Kansas.

 

Drag queens drew more than 200 people on September 25, 2018 to the downtown Wichita library for story time.

 

On a motion from board Chairman Kevin McWhorter, the board voted to send the policy back to its operations committee for further revision.

Board member Lamont Anderson Sr. referenced a long list of sex crimes covered by the proposed policy including rape, aggravated sexual assault, aggravated sodomy, solicitation of prostitution and lewd and lascivious conduct. Ed: You think so?

“To me, some of these, they’re just hard noes,” Anderson said. “It’s not someone I would want presenting to my granddaughter. That’s just me being truthful.

Pastor Craig Coffey, who leads a small congregation in Derby, said the board erred earlier in passing a policy that appears to allow drag queen story hours like the “Say YAAAS to Reading” event that drew a standing-room-only crowd at the library last year.

The event brought about 220 adults and their children to watch men who were dressed and made up as women read from LGBT-sympathetic children’s books.
