His new Chief DEI Officer, Angela Sailor, has already replaced “Equity”–a word that leftids have rendered totally meaningless–with “Opportunity.” She has also called Critical Race Theory, beloved of Far Left “educators,” a “dangerous philosophical poisoning in the blood stream.”
The question is, why is there still a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion office? How is this anything but a relic of crazed left-wing social engineering? It was created to activate Critical Race Theory as the doctrine behind the teaching that all white people are born evil and all non-whites are hopeless victims of “oppression,” etc., etc.
Well, cleaning out the Augean Stables of Virginia’s Dept. of Education will not be accomplished in a day: there is an immense quantity of muck to muck out. We should all be grateful to Gov. Youngkin for getting the work off to a good start. He is showing American that it can be done: we do not have to bow before the teachers’ unions.
Some of us would prefer to see “public education” scrapped altogether, and all the children removed from the schools. We expect it will be necessary to do this.
But meanwhile, Gov. Youngkin is trying to do his state and our nation good service; may God bless his efforts.
Last year the California State School Board decided to include prayers to pagan Aztec gods in their “Ethnic Studies” curriculum. For those who are ignorant of history, the Aztec gods were particularly bloodthirsty and human sacrifice on a massive scale was how the Aztecs worshiped them.
The board settled the suit out of court, instructing all personnel to knock it off with the Aztec prayers while denying any liability for damages. There was also a lot of grumbling: “educators,” it seems, looked to heathen Aztec gods to counter “racial injustice.” The whole ethic studies buffet is liberally drenched in Critical Race Theory (“All whites are born evil, all non-whites are oppressed,” etc.).
Warning: Just because they’ve been scared off by a lawsuit does not mean the board has come to see the error of its ways. In all likelihood, that will never happen.
The only way to keep children safe from public education is to keep them out of public schools.
Which is to say, they’re rejecting the whole “transgender” scam.
The document, entitled Catechesis and Policy on Questions Concerning Gender Theory, asserts that use of these false pronouns, “intended as an act of charity, instead promotes an acceptance of the separability of biological sex and ‘gender’ and thus opposes the truth of our sexual unity.”
Honk if you can think of even one Far Left doctrine that doesn’t oppose the truth.
How is it an act of charity to accede to someone’s delusion?
Next–how many “devout Catholic” Democrat politicians are going to go ballistic over this? And how long will it take them to involve the, er, Justice Dept.?
And are you up to speed on Gender Theory? Sheesh, how did we ever get by without Gender Theory?
Dan Crenshaw, running for Congress (I think) in Texas and peppering us here in New Jersey with emails schnorring for campaign contributions, came out with some high-grade idiocy this past weekend.
Now, what kind of politician goes at it with a 10-year-old girl? You don’t argue with children–and certainly not in public, in front of a crowd.
The little girl asked Crenshaw about comments he made on a radio show in 2020–yes, someone could have set her up to do this: we don’t know–some blather about “societal hero archetypes”–some of whom were “real,” like Ronald Reagan or Rosa Parks, and some of whom were… “like Jesus… or Superman.”
Now this was drivel; but all he had to do was smile bashfully and say “I guess I didn’t say that as well as I should’ve, huh? I really didn’t mean to compare Jesus to Superman.”
But no. He snapped at the kid and growled, “Don’t question my faith!” Gee. Phony fake Catholics like Pelosi and Biden always say that when somebody asks them to explain their enthusiastic support for abortion.
Crenshaw trots himself out as a “conservative,” although we have no idea what he’s conserving. Likening our Savior, the King of kings, to a comic book character suggests a mind that never outgrew college freshman sociology courses.
They dropped that plan when they were threatened with a lawsuit.
See, the idea is, you need “20 points” to qualify for potentially life-saving treatment. And if you’re [trumpet fanfare] “non-white,” they start you off with seven points that will never be given to any “white” patient.
Gee, in-your-face racism.
Of course, they could always have some kind of lottery, in which a patient’s race would play no part at all. But then they couldn’t virtue-signal! “Black lives really matter to us! Much, much more than white lives!”
They don’t have enough of certain medicines to go around–so the color of your skin decides whether you get treatment or not? How serious were they about this?
We’ve always told you white liberals are the biggest racists of them all. And don’t they try to prove it!
Point is, this sleaze artist, this slime-ball from the Swamp, had access to the highest levels of America’s politics (yes, he tossed sops to Republicans, too). Anyhow, now he’s pleaded guilty to “an illegal scheme” to pump money into Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential strivings, and they have to decide how long he ought to stay in prison.
“Yeahbut, yeahut! It’s just lobbyin’, and they do it all the time! Everybody does it!”
We need to be governed by persons who don’t stink.
What? Will they shoot you if you set foot outdoors?
How long would the Trib (aptly named, isn’t it? “Trib” for “tribulation”) want this to last? Until there are no more germs around? Until everyone in Utah is shot up with experimental drugs that are currently killing people? Or just until the editors get tired of it and want to move on to some new experiment in totalitarianism?
What are they doing with these students in the journalism schools?
And then they wonder while normal people hate and distrust the noozies.
First she lost to a freshman senator from Illinois whom most Americans had never heard of. Then she lost to a rich guy whose presidential run was his first venture into politics. She has sort of a habit to losing to newcomers.
Well, fine! Run her as many times as it takes to destroy the Democrat Party. She is a profoundly unlikable character, nobody in his right mind trusts her, she’s spectacularly corrupt… Oh, yes, Democrats! Go for it. This time it’s bound to work. This time you’re really gonna kick the football.
You’d think a party with millions of people in it could generate at least one major candidate who was not a crook, an idiot, a wacko, a jidrool, or a nitwit
