Diversity

Marxist diversity training in Missouri schools

You can’t make this up.

A few weeks ago it was San Diego schools accusing white teachers of being racist. Then a teacher at a Cupertino school was indoctrinating 8yos in a maths class – of all the subjects to conduct it – about deconstructing their own race and accepting their privilege.

Now Cherokee Middle School in Springfield, Missouri made teachers undergo a diversity training program that forced educators to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix” and watch a video of “George Floyd’s last words.”

The diversity trainers, Jeremy Sullivan and Myki Williamson (LinkedIn profile here), both white, asked teachers to acknowledge they were on stolen land and “the dark history and violence against Native and Indigenous People” at the start of proceedings.

The trainers then provided teachers a hand out on the aforementioned “oppression matrix,” which defines white heterosexual males as the “privileged social group” and women, minorities, transgender, and LGBT people as “oppressed social groups.

Teachers identified at the top of the totem pole were told they are responsible for the “racism, sexism, transgender oppression, heterosexism, [and] classism” against minorities who are less fortunate.

Then the concepts of overt and covert white supremacy were introduced. A document claimed that “lynching, hate crimes, KKK, neo-Nazis, [and] burning crosses” are “socially unacceptable” forms of white supremacy, while “education funding from property tax, colorblindness, calling the police on black people, BIPOC as Halloween costumes, not believing experiences of BIPOC, tone policing, [and] white silence” are “socially acceptable” forms of white supremacy. 

As if this wasn’t bad enough, white teachers were forced to actively vocalize confessions about their role in white supremacy as a form of “affirmative consent.” To remain (white) silent was a form of “white supremacy.”

One has to wonder whether those teachers who have been happy to indoctrinate kids with their political biases are now regretting that now the system is now coming for them.

What a disaster to know that kids are being brainwashed by teachers who are now forced to sit through Marxist re-education seminars. School boards should be sacked for allowing such training courses to be tolerated. Alas, activism in the classroom has replaced education.

So much for a platform of unity. Conform or be cancelled, bigots!

The poison of identity politics. By the tenets of the teachings, a white heterosexual homeless man is more privileged than a transgender POC earning $150,000pa.

Got it?

The Great Uniter in Chief compares Republicans to Nazis

You know the path to political harmony in America is often paved with trip wires and land mines.

While the media continue to hail Biden as the mature candidate who will unite a divided country we thought it a bit odd for him to accuse the opposition of employing tactics used by Goebbels and the Nazi propaganda machine.

It was bad enough that Biden threw the Capitol Police – who have protected him for 47 years implying they were a bunch of gun-toting racists with a blood lust against blacks – under the bus.

Fear not, newly elected Congresswoman Cori Bush ( D-MO), a self-proclaimed BLM activist, has vowed to introduce her first bill to remove those who questioned the election result. She tweeted,

“I just introduced H.Res. 25.

It would, under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, investigate and expel the GOP members of Congress who attempted to overturn the election and incited a white supremacist attack.

Call your rep to sign on. We can’t have unity without accountability.”

So a Marxist is suggesting democratically elected officials are worthy of expulsion for apparently inciting a white supremacist attack. Note the language – “investigate and expel.” Will a fair process occur or will they be labeled guilty until proven innocent?

Should all the Democrats that tried to prevent the result of the 2016 election being carried be liable for sedition too?

So should we conclude that every time a conservative white person lawfully and peacefully protests that they automatically be deemed ‘white supremacists’?

Be careful woke white liberals. You might think you’re on the right side of history, but you’re next. They might wish to reflect on the San Diego School District which will force white teachers to undergo white privilege training.

They will be compelled to acknowledge they are on stolen land and that they will experience “guilt, anger, apathy, [and] closed-mindedness” because of their “white fragility.

White teachers will be told “you are racist” and “you are upholding racist ideas, structures, and policies.

So even if you are the most tolerant white liberal in the world, you’re fair game. You’re racist but you just don’t know it. Got it?

Cori Bush’s Op-Ed in WaPo is laced with all the identity politics one could expect, including her dismay at the rough treatment by the police despite her admission to damaging/defacing public property. Aren’t laws supposed to be applied fairly?

Can Bush also explain why the minority vote for Trump went up in absolute and relative terms? A bit odd that they’d vote for someone dripping in white supremacy?

After disparaging the US Capitol Police in her article, Bush should demand her own taxpayer funded private security detail because, by her own conclusions, they can’t be trusted.

With politicians like these filling the ranks of the Democrats, just write off any hope that there is any intention to unite the country. The next 4 years will look a lot more like revenge than reconciliation.

Be careful where you step…

Stuff your outrage Libs

MRCTV’s Britt Hughes highlights the left’s outrage over the storming of Capitol Hill. Never mind the celebratory mood they’ve shown for the last 3 years over violence perpetrated by their own.

America’s cultural revolution and the long march back to equality

Within 48 hours of the confirmation of the electoral votes, unelected tech giants displayed once again how they can dictate terms to the democratically elected leader of the free world and his followers.

The First Amendment might as well have been written in invisible ink.

Now other platforms are following suit, laying the groundwork to ensure directly/indirectly there will be little effort to help unite the country by restricting/cancelling access to conservative sites.

Who is inciting who exactly?

Three quotes to reflect on before we begin:

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it

The one who does not remember history is bound to live through it again,”

and

History is written by victors.

The left is in raptures over Trump’s expulsion from Twitter. Of course they have no issues with cancelling those who don’t share their ideological views. Yet if you question their rights to free speech, hell hath no fury. After all everything that parses their fingertips is good, clean and wholesome. If you say otherwise you’ll be cancelled. Got it?

Yes, the argument will be made that privately run social media companies have the right to police those who may damage site integrity and promote the collective safety of subscribers. Have they been asleep at the wheel for the last 4 years? Even terrorists have been allowed to tweet without sanction.

The problem is that the unelected and unqualified overseers making those determinations to suspend others have shown time and time again they back the side not the principle. OJ Simpson on justice anyone?

A great example is Twitter’s Head of Site Integrity, Yoel Roth (@yoyoel), an avid anti-Trumper. Several days after the 2016 election he proudly tweeted, “I’m just saying, we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason.” We should sleep soundly at night that he also referred to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as “a personality-free bag of farts.” Surely there is no risk of conservative bias with the integrity team at Twitter…sleep soundly!

Black conservative Candace Owens proved just how biased Twitter is when she was suspended for replacing the word ‘white’ with ‘black’ and ‘Jewish.’ She proved the point with respect to the incendiary tweets made by the NYT’s then latest recruit, Sarah Jeong. Never let racism get in the way of the decision making process!

Facebook recently threatened to de-platform conservative comedian JP Sears for satire.

Now, Google has decided to remove conservative forum, Parler, from its Android store presumably just because Trump has endorsed it. So will every single thing that he has supported be shutdown or targeted? Watch out Goya!

Will Apple join the cultural revolution? Are all Parler users foaming at the mouth Trump cultists? Or do some simply like to entertain a wider spectrum of opinions?

Is this merely targeted anti-competitive behaviour? A secondary boycott? Has Parler actually committed any crime? Has Google been unethically marshaling the content and traffic of another private company to form the determination that it needs to be publicly sacrificed? Would it help to appoint a Google overseer to sit on the board of Parler, like Chinese corporates are now forced to accommodate? Will Rumble be the next conservative site to be axed from Android?

Can’t the free market determine whether Parler has a right to exist rather than a select few politburo officials from Google?

We can be sure that if Parler wasn’t experiencing the explosive growth it has had to date, Google would not have seen a need to expunge the threat. Alas too many wanted to seek an alternative platform to exchange ideas. It’s day one, year zero. Black is white. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Got it?

One has to question the legal basis for allowing a hateful and venomous platform like Twitter to function on Google Android but an upstart alternative – which couldn’t hold a flame to the incumbent – needs to be taken out?

Is this the type of healing we’ve been promised by the incoming administration? Restore unity by sitting idly by and allowing the media to silence those that disagree with them?

What better way for Biden to stamp his leadership credentials on uniting a fractured nation than stating how important the 1st Amendment is for all Americans.

But why bother? The tech giants are firmly on his side. After the last 4 years, it is high time to make sure that a monster of their own creation never upsets the political apple cart ever again. We await the glowing support of the climate change agenda, Paris, WHO, discrimination-driven racial equity and the benefits of allowing a path to citizenship or 11 million illegal immigrants.

It does not matter that Trump recently tweeted a video to his followers to go home peacefully and respect law and order. That was deemed incendiary and subsequently blocked. Don’t believe your lying eyes because we will be told what we can and can’t consume. Obviously we aren’t capable of thinking for ourselves.

Clearly to Jack Dorsey’s mob, it was imperative to prevent any sensible commentary by Trump from seeing the light of day. We wouldn’t want anything to challenge the narrative. The tech giant had to ensure that he was portrayed in the worst possible light before cancellation. No right of reply. Voltaire would be rolling in his grave.

We don’t deny Trump has said many silly things over his term but compared to some of the bile that has never faced sanction, it is laughable.

We fear that such moves will only fan the flames of division.

It seems these platforms want to proactively create an atmosphere that allows for the incoming administration to clamp down even harder on supposed enemies of the state. What better way than to douse their opponents in high octane fuel while carelessly playing with matches?

We are always amazed that more haven’t seen the TED talk by a black musician, Daryl Davis, who befriended the KKK by simply ‘listening‘ to them. That was all it took to get so many to hand in their robes.

Note the word “listen.”

Sadly, social media platforms have long drowned out reasoned debate well before the commissars found the need to jail dissidents with sanctimonious edicts.

This is a dangerous precedent being set. By muzzling a country that is built on a constitution that enshrines free speech, it is playing with fire. We ain’t seen nothing yet. America will be decisively cut in two.

In closing we’ve long argued that Trump pulled the scab off the festering wound of deep seated division. He was the catalyst. Not the cause. With the incoming administration, failure to address the growing power of big tech will lead to more people taking the law into their own hands.

We don’t condone unlawful behaviour but will be the least bit surprised if those who feel the most marginalized think they’ve nothing to lose.

If we thought 2020 was a horrible year, 2021 could well destroy that myth but thanks to social media you’ll only be able to view the world through the rose tinted glasses of willfully dishonest propagandists.

The social media giants will do well to remember that “before setting out on revenge, first dig two graves.”

NY legislator’s loony plans to detain people for 2 months if they pose health risk

MRCTV’s Britt Hughes discusses NY’s latest plans to forcibly detain people for 2 months without a court order on suspicion of contracting or having come in contact with anyone inflected with COVID or another deadly/infectious disease.

When will people start pushing back on this nonsense?

Then again NY is no stranger to out of touch officials when it comes to handling COVID.

Three things spring to mind.

1) NY Gov Andrew Cuomo accepted the International Emmy Founders Award for his COVID19 response. Woke celebrities then lavished him with praise in a completely out of touch cringe fest.

The International Emmy Awards tweeted,

Gov Andrew M Cuomo of NY will receive the International Emmy Founders Award in recognition of his leadership during the Covid19 pandemic & his masterful use of TV to inform & calm people around the world.

How telling that the Emmy’s focused on delivery as opposed to results.

How ironic that Cuomo not only laid claim to the most disastrous COVID19 stats of any state but mandated COVID positive patients into nursing homes which directly led to the deaths of 6,000 elderly residents. Don’t tell anyone they conducted their own ‘independent audit’ and found the government not at fault. Who knew?

2) NY Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot openly welcomed BLM protests despite the lockdowns. Mark D Levine, Chairman, NYC Council health committee, went more woke stating, “Let’s be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protesters. Blame racism, 

3) or NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s wife doing a cringeworthy ‘stay at home’ unity dance despite NY businesses getting destroyed.

Speaker Pelosi makes her first move in the Newspeak world

New rules for the 117th Congress in the House of Representatives under Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will eliminate words such as father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather,, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson and granddaughter and replace them with gender neutral terms parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling and first cousin.

There is a deep irony when looking at Pelosi, a woman who always dresses in a manner commonly associated with her gender, to do this. She also made an 8 hour non-filibuster on DACA in 2018 which included the following:

I’m reminded of my own grandson. He had a very close friend whose name is Antonio. He’s from Guatemala and he has beautiful tan skin and brown eyes and the rest. And this was such a proud day for me because [when] my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said, ‘Did you make a wish?’ He said, ‘Yes, I made a wish.’ They said, ‘Well, what is your wish?’ He said, ‘I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.’

Pelosi will establish a ‘Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth,’ with the purpose of ensuring traditional family terms will be “gender neutral” going forward.

We have no doubt this will make absolutely zero contribution in eradicating inequality across America.

We often wonder why the overwhelming majority must be instructed to give way to fringes within minority groups. We are quite sure that minority groups aren’t monoliths and that the majority of those within them are just as comfortable accepting traditional families calling their kids son or daughter. We have no issues referring to people in ways that encourage a polite society but it shouldn’t be compelled. Yet it should work both ways. Isn’t that how we unite?

We won’t be the least bit surprised to see backlash from the very people these rules are supposed to protect because they never wanted to be clumped in with a prescribed view which probably never sought to consult them in the first place. This is exactly what happened with Bill C-16 in Canada.

Furthermore, if the radical fringes so demand equality then they should have no qualms about the English language functioning as it has or centuries. Sadly, equality to these groups is often deemed a form of discrimination in today’s woke world.

Don’t forget in 2017, California passed legislation which gave courts the power to jail those who repeatedly refused to call people by their preferred name or pronouns.

Alas, every new proposal and bill which seeks to foster equality manages to achieve the exact opposite. Promote diversity with segregation. Liberal logic.

We’re guessing the majority of Americans, including minorities, just want to have government focus on ending lockdown induced poverty and getting the economy back on its feet so they can feed their father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson and granddaughter.

Democrats vs Republicans during the festive season

To All My Democrat Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2021, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

To My Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Why should we believe in the science when such people are modeling it?

We were continuously told last year that we must follow the science on COVID-19. No ifs. No buts. We’re all in this together. Right?

Not so fast. Politicians continued to collect paychecks while forcing so many into financial destitution by preventing their right to earn an income. Even worse the political class continuously broke their own draconian rules which landed many of the less fortunate with fines, arrests and in the worst case scenario, prison. Rules for thee but not for me.

Back to the science.

One could be forgiven for possessing a healthy dose of skepticism in questioning the medical advisories by virtue of the constant flip-flopping on how to contain the virus.

Sweden has proven that lockdowns aren’t effective. That didn’t stop a me too approach exercised by most cities/states/countries to adopt economics-destroying stay-at-home orders. It wasn’t based on a science but a safety in numbers approach. The idea that there was less political risk by following a herd mentality rather than herd immunity.

Flu guru Dr Fauci told us masks were ineffective until they became a useful political tool for him to promote their use.

Now a multitude of vaccines are upon us, science doesn’t seem to be the only driver of decisions on how it should be administered.

Were the science to be followed to the letter, wouldn’t the best option be to save lives in aggregate? Wouldn’t that be to give it to the most vulnerable members in society first i.e. the elderly?

Well the CDC has modelers like Jo Walker. Walker identifies as a non-binary trans who goes by pronouns they/them. Walker’s Twitter handle makes a pretty strong case for putting social justice ahead of science. Walker is a fervent supporter of defunding the police and claims to live on stolen land. By that measure, it is not hard to believe that such public disclosure might reveal a certain personal bias.

We don’t know about you but all we look for in data scientists (or any other profession for that matter) is the ability to do the role competently.

Are modelers like Walker partly responsible for pushing the racial inequity narrative at the CDC? In a nutshell, given there are more whites in the 65yo and above category (who just happen to be among the highest risk of succumbing to COVID-19), the CDC believes there is a strong case for minorities being bumped up the queue even if it could result in a higher final death tally.

Put it another way, if minorities dominated the most risky categories (65+) the CDC would have no need to report it because it would merely be the right thing to do.

Expect 2021 to reveal more mind numbing social justice masked as science. So much for uniting people by promoting real equality. Use identity as the yardstick. The more oppression points the better. End segregation by enforcing it.

Then some wonder why fewer and fewer people are in this together. The CDC and many groups like it have ceased being reputable agencies and become activists pushing agendas unrelated to their mandated fields.

AOC channels The Last Emperor

Few things come closer to the recent comments made by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) -who thinks that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (80) and Senator Chuck Schumer (70) need to step aside for the harder left faction of the party – than this clip from The Last Emperor.

While we agree with AOC that both are past their prime purely on their ridiculous policy positions, at the very least Pelosi has regularly kept AOC away from any bodies of influence given her even more radical views. Recall Pelosi referred to AOC’s Green New Deal as a “green dream.”

Still, the Trojan horse in Biden will make way for Harris at some stage and so will begin the cultural revolution within the Democrat Party.

We just thought AOC wanted to publicly blacklist Republicans. Now even her own elders are ripe for ridicule.
