The real deal.

"B. Provide an already-created, in-depth, study that critiques empire, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism, anthropocentrism, and other forms of power and oppression at the intersections of our society, and that we oppose attempts to ban critical race theory and/or The 1619 Project."

They really are all-in for The Revolution. To some extent, I admire the sheer gall of the whole thing after all the bitching about some Trump Guys In Pickup Trucks and the couple of hundred people let into the Capitol. Team Blue has the bit in their teeth and they are going for it. Any time you can seize power, which is what this is about after all, under a fig leaf of righteousness, the foot soldiers will propel it along.

If Western Civilization is going to save itself it needs to gin up an emotionally strong alternative, and in a hurry. Dabbling with a personality cult was obviously insufficient.

‘Robin DiAngelo Cashes In On Her Audience’s White Guilt, Calls Them All Racist Again In New Book’
Infamous author Robin DiAngelo is yet again seeking to profit off of white guilt, this time even calling her own audience of white progressives racist in hopes they will buy her 'cure.'

“Whiteness is perhaps the premier target of critical race theorists, with psychoanalyst Donald Moss calling it a “parasitic condition” and a “pathology” without a “permanent cure,” while deceased historian, Harvard lecturer, and member of the Communist Party Noel Ignatiev wrote “Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity” in a journal he founded titled “Race Traitor.”

While “whiteness” has frequently been targeted by critical race theorists, DiAngelo pushes the line even farther into dangerous absurdity. By deeming “well-meaning” whiteness as problematic, DiAngelo leads the honest reader to only two possible conclusions.

Either whiteness, and therefore white people, are irredeemably evil regardless of their individual intentions or behavior, a claim that appears to offer a post-modern, moralistic twist to the incredibly dangerous claims of innate racial inferiority that historically ungirds oppression, or well-intentioned white people simply need to unquestioningly cough up their money and guzzle the venomous snake oil that DiAngelo sells in order to finally break free from the sin that taints the circumstance of their very existence.

Neither outcome is suitable for any self-respecting person of any race, but unfortunately DiAngelo has correctly identified her audience. She’s well-prepared to cash in on the guilt of white progressives who iwill almost certainly line up, wallet in hand, as the high priestess of anti-racism teaches her servile laypeople how to root out their “nice racism.”

The real tragedy isn’t merely that DiAngelo is resorting to such a perverse way to make money. What’s truly startling is just how effective it is.

Apparently, the guilt complex of woke white progressives is so intense that many of them will pay to read DiAngelo, a far-left white person, malign the whiteness of far-left white white people in a 224-page audit of the internalized white supremacy that allegedly resides in the collective psyches of woke white progressives.”

Teachers Union President Falsely Claims CRT Critics Want To Ban Schools From ‘Teaching History,’ ‘Discussing Racism’

“One must inevitably ask: Why do Weingarten and other Leftists have to lie in order to get CRT taught in schools? The reason may have something to do with the fact that CRT and similar ideologies are angering parents of all races. Also, only Democrats support CRT, while the rest of Americans reject its teachings.”

Nation’s Largest Teachers Union Moves Forward With Resolution That Dubs Israel ‘Occupied Palestinian Territory’

The NEA is not the only teachers union making comments about the Israel-Palestinian conflict. According to the Washington Free Beacon, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) president Randi Weingarten criticized Jews as being “part of the ownership class” in an interview.

‘Nation’s Largest Teachers Union Says It Will Teach Critical Race Theory In All 50 States, 14,000 School Districts’

The resolution flies in the face of some Democrats and many in the mainstream media who claim that critical race theory doesn’t exist.

The former Virginia Governor and current gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe said that critical race theory is “another right-wing conspiracy theory” that was “totally made up by Donald Trump.” MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd called critical race theory “manufactured.”

Meanwhile, the NEA is busy scrubbing it’s website like a busy Biden appointee to delete references that they just pushed for CRT to be taught in schools, Kindergarten and up. Reminds me of what BLM leadership did about being trained Marxists and rather blatant calls for the destruction of the new clear family. Man, is the CRT crowd, the BLM crowd. and the intersectionality crowd are hung up on transgenders or what?? Like, obsession.

Did like the video of a black man standing up at school board meeting and told the board that they are teaching his daughter to hate her mother. I can’t believe how articulate and sharp those educated parents are.

In another place...on a weekday school board meeting, like on a Tuesday at 2:00 pm, about two hundred to two hundred fifty people stood waiting in the 100 degree sun for the meeting to start. Many never publicly protested anything in their life whole lives, or been involved politics. Don’t sound like Astro-turf to me.

Wipe the server with a cloth. Scrub, scrub, scrub.

A correspondent (No Labels member) sent me a link to a WaPo report on CRT doings in Loudon County, Virginia.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/loudoun-critical-race-theory-transgender-rights/2021/07/05/3dab01b8-d4eb-11eb-ae54-515e2f63d37d_story.html

This was his attempt to show that the lamestream also gives complete reports of what's happening in the country. Well, no. Unfortunately, the content of the piece does not tell the paper’s regular readers what are the race-based specifics that are now being mandated by AFT and NEA for the nation’s classrooms, and citations of the materials that are actually being taught across the land. On the leftwing media neither are shown the actual videos of parents testifying at the various school board meetings both in Virginia and elsewhere, and the quoted responses of the pro-CRT school board members.

It is clear that if one only watches approved media, then he gets a very jaundiced and one-sided view of what’s going on. This is definitely not the case with conservative media which includes in its reporting video segments from CNN, MSNBC, et al, and direct quotes plus audios of Democrat supporters of CRT education.

Especially useful to follow the links on the last URL to find out what’s actually taught. And the obvious hanky-panky conducted by CRT-promoting politicians and institutions in their attempts to deny the actual neo-Marxist content of their new classroom curricula.
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/national-education-association-takes-down-pages-crt-anti-racism-mandatory-vaccine-assembly-proposals

But all this aside, I am forever puzzled by my liberal friends who agree with me, when I outline why large, centrally planned/controlled institutions (public and private) inevitably reach what might be called the bureaucratic performance limit (BPL), and then in their next breath approve policy proposals that will further enlarge an already over-bloated and dysfunctional government that has years of demonstrated incompetency. When I ask them about the dichotomy, they remain speechless and just repeat why the next government ‘investment’ will be for the greater good. BTW, when a private business reaches its BPL, then the classical and very effective response is to become a corporatist, and use its wealth to buy government guns to guarantee its markets and limit competitors.

"...The war over “Critical Race Theory” in this sense has become a political marketing campaign that’s uniquely double-edged in its cynicism. Democrats are pretending they don’t know what the fuss is all about. Republicans are pretending there isn’t a dog whistle in their backlash campaign. At the center of it all is the concept itself, which does exist but is much broader, and both more interesting and more frightening, than the narrow race theory that has Republican politicians in maximum wig-out mode...."

re scenes 216pm - For the links to be live in most text editors like the one here for comments, their URLs must have their own lines - i.e. I'm not aware of any text editor that will parse run-together URLs into individual live links. I have corrected scenes 214pm to illustrate this.
