The Logic of Identity Politics

Image result for images of amelia earhart

Nothing floats liberalism like identity politics. Nobody’s an individual: we are significant only in terms of our membership in an identifiable group. If we want to prosper, we must arrange to be included in a group identified as victims. Then we are entitled to other people’s stuff.

Anyhow, here’s how identity politics works. See if you can follow the simple logic in this example:

*Amelia Earhart was a woman.

*Amelia Earhart was an aviation pioneer.

*I, Reesha Plopkin, am a woman.

*Therefore I, Reesha Plopkin, am an aviation pioneer.

In Lesson Two, we shall see that all Ms. Plopkin has to do is self-identify as a jet pilot–and that makes her one. Hand her the keys to the jump jet!

Yeah, They’re Crazy

I think if I were offered Tucker Carlson’s job, I’d be convinced I was having a bad dream. Or maybe a nervous breakdown.

In this outing, Tucker interviews a smirking paramecium named Dakotah Something, who thinks socialism really, really works and America should try to be like Venezuela. ‘Cause all the probs down there, he says between smirks, are caused by bad people trying to ruin the government’s plans to create a workers’ paradise. Damn, it’s a tough row to hoe, for those “dedicated Chavistas.”

Workers, eh? Socialism is full of airheads who never did a day’s work in their lives. What would they know about work?

Watch this kid’s face and listen to his words. This is a product of our education system. This is what we’re getting for our money.

This is our national folly come to life.

And what we’re supposed to do with the hundreds of thousands like him that our colleges are turning out, beats me.


School: Private Conversation Isn’t Private

Image result for images of duct tape over mouths

Our public education system continues to poison our society. Thanks (I think) to Linda for this news tip. (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/05/17/augusta-school-department-punishes-employee-for-telling-coworker-i-will-pray-for-you/)

In Augusta, Maine, a public school employee was recently disciplined with “coaching”–can these people do euphemisms, or what!–for saying, in a private conversation with another employee who is also a member of her church, “I will pray for you.”

Well, hey, hey! She was “instructed” never to say such a thing in any private conversation. Hello! Aren’t private conversations private anymore? Not in a public school, they aren’t. The employee has filed charges against the school district for religious discrimination.

Even more disturbing, school officials told her that she cannot use “phrases that integrate public and private belief systems.”

Whoa! Hold it right there! Since when does America have any “public belief system”? Has the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment been repealed? Did it happen while we slept? Who established a “public belief system” that binds us all? (“One ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them…” –Tolkien)

These people have got to be sent packing, before we all wake up behind barbed wire. Who do they think they are?

Wake up, O spirit of 1776! Wake up!

The Second Tower of Babel

Image result for images of talking drivel

Trying to prove himself God’s equal, Satan always tries to do what God does. The result is never more than a lame or perverted imitation. But God confounded human language, to stop the building of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11), so Satan has gotta confound the language, too.

He has chosen our colleges and universities to serve him in this enterprise.

Take a gander at this snippet from The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston.

“John Hoopes organized a talk at his university… When I asked him what the talk would cover, he explained to me the discussion would be mostly aimed at helping students ‘think about how “hot” issues such as those of colonialism, white supremacy, hypermasculinity, fantasy and imagination, and indigenous rights… intersect with the narratives that have been and are being spun about [an archeological site].” (pgs. 275-276)

If they thought the jungle growth around their site was thick, it was nothing compared to the impenetrable mass of academic drivel now growing up around it. You’re trying to learn something about an archeological study, and you have to machete your way through all that pure crapola… You’ll never be able to cut it down as fast as it grows up. Academic drivel grows like kudzu.

And in another email sent to me today, Gloria Steinem–a silly old fraud who tries to think young, but hasn’t had a new idea since 1972–blames “forced childbirth” for Global Warming. By “forced childbirth” she means, I think, simply not having an abortion. You see, abortion helps to Save The Planet.

How come everything low-down, bad, or evil is pitched to us as necessary to Save The Planet? I mean, if that were really what we had to do to save it, would it even be worth saving?

But again we see language being used to lie to us and confuse us. I’m sure you can think of as many more examples as I can.


They Need a Jolly Good Thrashing

Image result for images of college student brats

So who said collidge kids are unemployable?

The University of Arizona–your tax dollars at work, fellow peasants!–is paying students $10 an hour to be “social justice advocates” on campus ( http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/may/10/university-arizona-paying-students-be-social-justi/).

What does that job entail?

Idiots–er, students–will be busy “instituting monthly programmatic efforts within the residence halls that focus specifically on social justice issues,” hanging posters all over the dorms, and setting up “social justice events.” With any luck, you will never find out what a “social justice event” actually is.

These paid Social Justice Warriors will also be changed with “reporting bias incidents” and “confronting diversity insensitive behavior.” They will engage in “critical reflection of power and privilege, identity and intersectionality–” what? What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Stop, stop, I can’t write about this anymore. I need a nose to punch! I need a Social Justice Warrior to put into an armlock and make him yell “Long live Donald Trump!” I mean, could these people, with the most earnest effort in the world, possibly do anything at all to make themselves even more obnoxious than they are?

I very much doubt it.


But Is It Art?

Thanks to Linda for this priceless news tip.

Two students bought a pineapple at the supermarket and left it on an empty display case at a modern art exhibit at Robert Gordon University, Scotland. As they expected, the pineapple was mistaken for a work of art and placed inside the display case for everyone to admire (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/05/09/tuesday-funny-pineapple-left-behind-by-students-mistaken-for-modern-art/).

An exhibit official denies that they were taken in by the prank; but I think the joke’s on them. And on the world of modern art in general.

This reminds me of an experience I had when I was studying art in college.

I stayed behind one day to help the art instructor clean out his classroom. Up on top of a row of closets, I found some pieces of twisted fiberglass.

“Where do you want me to toss these?” I asked.

He laughed. “No, no, no! Don’t toss them anywhere!” Those, he explained, were his sculptures, which he was scheduled to display at such-and-such a time at such-and-such a place.

“You’re kidding,” I said. “These are just junk.”

He laughed some more. “You know it’s junk, and I know it’s junk,” he said, “but the people at the gallery say it’s art and they’re going to exhibit it. If I’m lucky, they’ll sell it to someone who’s an even bigger numbskull.”

And there you have it–culture rot, circa 1969.

Big-time “art” has been in serious trouble for at least that long.


Is Any School Safe for Your Kids?

Image result for images of boys in dresses

Up in Canada, the Niagara Catholic School District–please note the Catholic part–had to cancel the performance of a play that seems to want to rush 5-year-olds into transgenderism (http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/05/07/catholic-school-hit-for-canceling-lgbt-play-for-5-year-olds.html ). The play was to be put on in the schools, but the district canceled it after one performance.

School officials said the content of the play was something other than what they had been led to expect. But, gee, the title should’ve been a tell: Boys, Girls, and Other Mythological Creatures. The fact that the project was sponsored by a “gay” group should’ve been another tip-off.

Yeah, folks–just send your 5-year-olds off to school for a good feeding on sexual chaos, here brought to you by the notoriously sodomite-friendly Ontario Ministry of Education. I mean, you know where those people are coming from!

The sponsors of the play blamed the cancellation on “transphobia, homophobia, and misogyny.” If you want to shield your children from these predators, you must be a Biggit and a Hater.

I didn’t want to report on anything like this today, but there it is.


College Course: ‘Strategies of Resistance’

Image result for images of angry professor

Butler U. is offering three credits to students who take a course on “resisting Trumpism” (http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9144)–you know: that thing 62 million of us voted for.

For $36,000 a year (tuition only, not counting everything else), students will be regaled by their professor with tales of “Trumpism and U.S. Democracy,” consisting of “sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism.” Says the syllabus, “On Nov. 8, we lost more than just the presidency. We lost yet more ground in the decades-long campaign against progressive values.”

What values? Big government, abortion, sexual anarchy, stirring up racial animosities–oh, those values.

Can you imagine the uproar if a college, just a few years ago, had offered a course on “Resisting Obamaism”? “Racist, racist, racist! Biggit! Hater!” Loretta Lunch would’ve launched a prosecution.

But this is what they call “higher education.”

America has way too many colleges and universities, way too many college students, way too many far-left loons indoctrinating them, and way, way, way too much money being squandered on what can only be called a grotesque parody of education.

Parents who love and respect their sons and daughters, and wish them to be sane and productive citizens, don’t send them to those colleges.

Until “higher education” is cut down to size, nothing much good will happen to America.
