From the Washington Post news section:

New rules make N.C. schools discuss racism. Some officials opposed the ‘anti-American’ change.

By Marisa Iati
Feb. 5, 2021 at 2:41 p.m. PST

North Carolina’s state school board on Thursday approved new standards requiring social studies teachers to discuss racism, while some board members slammed the move as “anti-American” in one of many fights playing out across the country about how schools teach history….

Several members of the school board have criticized those guidelines as falling within an “anti-democratic” and “anti-capitalist” framework that overemphasizes the nation’s sins in comparison to its victories.

But none dare call it what it is: anti-white racism.

    Exactly this. The framework for thinking something is anti-white has been successfully marginalized by the same school curricula now being resisted. The more the left pushes this agenda the more whites will begin to see it in explicitly racial terms. Duh.

    It seems like the left knows this, along with the fact that they've vastly overplayed their hand, and are now accelerating their doubling down hoping it won't be noticed until it is too late.

    I'm hopeful but not confident that something constructive will come of all this.

    Whoa.

  3. Years ago I often heard Japan criticized for insufficiently apologizing for its role in World War II, the terrible things it did in Korea and China, the Rape of Nanking, torture and murder of POWs, etc. I was in agreement with these criticisms.

    As I watched what was happening in my own nation, with constant discussion of America’s sins, which could never be put behind us and absolutely never forgiven, I came to respect the Japanese approach. For a nation, as for an individual, it is unhealthy to spend an inordinate amount of time dwelling on your flaws and past sins. Psychologically, it destroys you.

    And then I realized that that was the whole point: not to make us a better people, but simply to destroy us.

    About Korea as part of the Japanese Empire
    Check out this book
    New Korea by Alleyne Ireland
    http://yeoksa.blog.fc2.com/blog-category-57.html

    Walter Alleyne Ireland was a British author and an expert on the subject of tropical colonies of the British empire.

    From the book
    "The Japanese administration in Korea has done more to advance the interests of Korea than any other government has done to advance the interests of any country in the world... That Korean agricultural exports should have increased in little more than a decade by more than a thousand per cent; industrial exports by more than three thousand per cent, fishery exports by nearly three thousand per cent...would, if Korea were a self-governing country instead of a Japanese colonial dependency, be hailed throughout the Western world as an astounding example of national progress."

    "... the credit is due chiefly to the humane and conciliatory attitude of Governor-General Saito toward the Korean people, and to the wise measures which, for more than six years, have been the fruit of an unstinting employment of his unusual energy and of his still more unusual administrative talents."

    "... Vice-Governor-General Ariyoshi, one of Japan's most expert and highly regarded civil administrators, a man whom, from my own observation, I know to be a tireless worker and sympathetic toward the Korean people."

    Furthermore, Alleyne calls the Resident-General Ito Hirobumi "a sincere friend and well-wisher of Korea". The Resident-General Ito was assassinated by a Korean nationalist An Jung-geun (安重根) in 1909, who is today praised by Koreans as a national hero!!!

    Or to feel guilty for the sins committed by other people you never even met. And don't get me started with those who believe I unfairly benefitted from my being white. Yeah, like when I tried to apply for a job (before the Internet and you had to visit the business to apply for a job) and was told that they were not accepting applications. The HR person whispered to me an apology after looking over my resume and noted that if I were black he could hire me on the spot. White privilege, they call it.

    That hip hop guy released another song yesterday, and he just seems to be getting started. He has over a million views in a day, a lot of pent up, frustrated support and it is clear that there are going to be a lot of folks following in his footsteps with more like this.

    (Not really my favorite music though)

    The hook is:

    I don't care if you mad at me, okay?
    Go ahead and change the channel
    Don't waste your time tryna cancel me, okay?

    The first few lyrics:

    I can't be canceled, there's no way that you can stop me
    I'm fully independent, there's no label who can drop me
    Y'all been starting rumors, let me help you with some, yeah:
    "I'm a racist, I'm a sexist, I'm in love with Donald Trump"
    Y'all can't cancel me, my life is scandal-free
    There ain't no sponsors taking losses 'cause the brand is me
    My hands are clean, my family and my fans agree
    Y'all can't cancel me for facts because you're mad and weak

    "Cancelled"

    I can't be canceled, there's no way that you can stop me

    "I'm a racist, I'm a sexist, I'm in love with Donald Trump"

    My hands are clean, my family and my fans agree
    Y'all can't cancel me for facts because you're mad and weak

    Go ahead and tell the world I'm ugly and racist
    I braid my hair and I don't care about cultural appropriation
    I lived in the ghetto, lived in South Central, there's no Caucasians
    And still I loved every single one of my neighbors
    How's a man say I'm clickbait if he gonna use this face
    To get clicks on his page, y'all hypocrites are bitch-made
    But I ain't tripping 'bout these bullies, it ain't sixth grade
    Go ahead and diss me tryna sell a couple mixtapes

    I'm not afraid, take my face and my name, paste it on the front page
    I'm already famous and you'll never change it by hating or claiming you'll take it away
    My grind wicked, write my rhymes different, you can try to quantify the fine limits
    There's a dying gimmick, can't deny I'm winning, this is pure fire, this ain't white privilege
    I do what I want, get all the Gucci and Louis Vuitton—
    Outta my closet, outta my crib, I do not want it, that is for kids
    That is for rappers who ask you to produce their beats for free, pretending online like they rich
    I am not playing it safe, I said what I said, it is what it is

    I don't care if you mad at me, okay?
    Go ahead and change the channel
    Don't waste your time tryna cancel me, okay?
    They love me 'cause they know that I'm an asshole
    Say what you want, I guess it is what it is
    Haters can talk but they can't cancel the kid
    Go 'head and go walk, try and say this is it
    But I swear to God, you can't cancel the kid

    Everybody knows my name, from local folks to global fame
    I'm vocal 'bout the social justice movements, I expose the fakes
    Turn rappers into ghosts in graves, make no mistake, they bones will break
    I'll throw them in the wolf enclosure, slowly turn and close the cage
    Acres full of sheep, you know that I'm the only GOAT, I'm great
    They spoke my name to mostly hate, I don't complain, I'm woke, I wait
    A total focused soldier, wrote the Art of War, know every page
    I'm numb to all the dumbness, smoke tobacco laced with Novocain
    I won't behave, I stoke the flames, I'll choke they throats with golden chains
    Use vocal cords as skipping ropes and jump till I am soaked in brains
    From open planes to coastal waves to solar rays in open space
    Can't find nobody doper 'less you poke your veins and snort cocaine

    Whoa, y'all can't cancel me
    Just get mad that I'm the man until you smash the screen
    Like whoa, I can handle heat
    I walked through hell in open sandals drinking gasoline, yeah

    I coulda been a star
    Coulda had a mansion and a car
    And a Grammy album on the charts
    I'm a savage, Randy with the bars
    I don't rap 'bout Xanax, goddamn it
    Can't cancel facts, we need answers
    Championing trash to the masses
    Actually massively damages, yuh
    Keep tryna cancel me, yuh
    I own the masters so, yuh
    I make the beats, I write the songs, I own the cameras, yuh
    I coulda been famous
    Dumbed my music down till it's basic
    Get it on the hottest Spotify playlist
    Modify my catalog and go mainstream, yuh

    I don't care if you mad at me, okay?
    Go ahead and change the channel
    Don't waste your time tryna cancel me, okay?
    They love me 'cause they know that I'm an asshole

    Haters can talk but they can't cancel the kid
    Go 'head and go walk, try and say this is it
    But I swear to God, you can't cancel the kid

    I feel like all these rappers lately on a mission
    They starting drama, they don't really want no problems, so they talking whispers
    Don't even start, no competition, y'all are finished
    They say they feeling froggy but I bet none of these frogs gon' ribbit
    They think I'm soft but I promise y'all that I'm solid
    Like a rock inside a Teflon box and dipped in carbon fiber liquid
    I'm not religious but I walk with Christians
    If Jesus died for all my sins, he'd need a million crosses tall as buildings

    Whoa, y'all can't cancel me
    I'm a god and you're the devil, stop attacking me
    Like whoa, nails in my hands and feet
    Y'all some snakes, I don't need fruit from that apple tree
    I ain't doing features or buying beats, I'm a wolf, I don't lie with sheep
    I am what I am and I can't hide my teeth
    Way too many rumors, I'm like, who said it?
    Never met him, if he dissed me, probably 'bout to drop a new record

    I do what I want, don't matter if I get approval or not
    Y'all ain't get to cyberbully me or try to push on me until I'm becoming some dude who I'm not
    Head full of ludicrous thoughts, producing the songs, my music is truth and you brutally shocked
    I'm shooting my shot, I'm Biggie, I'm Shady, I'm new school 'Pac
    Go ahead and call me a piece of garbage, make a starving artist your primary target
    I'm the largest monster in the farthest darkness, now my claws are sharpened, I'm an army sergeant
    If people wanna hate then I'm grateful, it's only gonna make what I say less painful
    Look at my face, embrace I'm unstable, I ain't gonna break or shake or feel shameful

    I don't care if you mad at me, okay?
    Go ahead and change the channel

    Years ago I often heard Japan criticized for insufficiently apologizing for its role in World War II, the terrible things it did in Korea and China, the Rape of Nanking, torture and murder of POWs, etc.
     
    There's a lengthy Wikipedia article with a list of aplogies that Japan has made. I myself am responsible for some of the entries, because I live in Japan and read about them in local media, although oddly they never make it into Korean, Chinese, or American media. I eventually just gave up working on the piece, since the apologies just keep flowing: There are many more than make it into Wikipedia.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_war_apology_statements_issued_by_Japan

    Beyond apologies Japan has paid reparations of various sorts to Korea, repeatedly, and every few years more are demanded by Korean pressure groups. The lesson of reparations is that there is no closure to it. Even if you seem to have a single negotiating counterpart, the official government of the country, a new administration will disavow what the previous has done. Now the South Korea supreme court has gotten into the act, threatening to seize assets of Japanese businesses.

    I think the big difference between China/Korea and Japan is education. Japan is criticized for not having enough on the war in textbooks. As a result Japanese don't have strong feelings about the matter. China and Korea practice hate education and induce hatred for Japanese in kids from a young age. Which educational approach is morally correct? Who cares. The Japanese approach works and the Chinese/Korean approach doesn't work, in producing a cooperative modern world. Do what works, not what doesn't work.

    The US is the greatest perpetrator of violence in the world today, by far, not to mention of poverty, sickness, and general immiseration. How could anybody with half a clue think differently?

    Watch out for them Cuban drones. And the Chinese ones. And the Russian ones.

    Oh, wait. They don't drone nobody. Gee, I wonder why. I mean, the greatest country in the world drones people every day. Including American citizens. Without trial.

    The US should rightly be taken to task for "the cannibalisation and military colonisation of much of the world, and for installing and supporting the dozens of brutal military dictatorships around the world."

    That's outrageous, though I'm so beaten-down at the moment that it hardly even registers.
  6. When I think of it, outside of the US – and even in the US – I haven’t heard that term, much.

    But, what I did hear, numerous times, is “black racism”. Most people simply don’t notice anti-white animus among, say, east Asians, Mestizos or dot Indians. Those who do, dismiss it as something not visceral enough. And quite a few have registered black racist attitudes towards anyone, and whites especially.

  7. Slate does a deep dive and dishes on the Democrats:

    https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2021/02/maga-nazi-propaganda-january-sixth-ellipse-video.html

    The next clip lingers on Joe Biden, with a vacant stare in his eyes and the video footage slowed, while Trump’s inauguration speech plays, “For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government, while the people have borne the cost.” It is clear from the image of Biden that he is not making the decisions.

    The video shifts to an image of Senator Charles Schumer, reminding the viewer of prominent Jewish leaders of the Democratic party. Schumer is wearing a Kente cloth, an image evocative of Ku Klux Klan ideology—that Jews support Black liberation movements as a way to undermine white rule and destroy the nation.

    The next frame shows the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, flanked by two Jewish Congressman, Reps. Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff. Pelosi, too, is controlled by Jews.

    Notice that she doesn't claim any of this is "fake". Joe does have a vacant look; Schumer is wearing African garb; Pelosi is flanked by two powerful Jews.

    They've moved from attacking "fake news" to attacking "news".

    Essentially: "You're pointing things out. SO DID THE NAZIS!"

  8. But none dare call it what it is: anti-white racism.

    Spot on, Steve. I’m sort of a fan of the “rectification of names” (thanks Confucius) here, so calling anti-White racism, rooted in Black Supremacism and strains of Marxism, anti-American, anti-capitalist, and anti-democratic makes as much sense to me as calling plastics anti-wood, or anti-metal, or anti-ceramic, or anti-ivory.

    The stoneware and porcelain makers who privately flailed about over paper plates and Tupperware probably had to decide whether and how to make their peace with those upstart products that were cutting into their revenues because they possessed some objectively identifiable virtues that ceramics lacked.

    I’ll cut my windbaggery short. Anti-White racism has “virtues” to its adherents, individuals and big corporations alike. We talk about those “virtues”, wage-cutting, divide-and-conquer politics, unearned redistribution, the prospect of “reparations” etc. I’m not sure such a “virtue” is a virtue at all, but more like verbal cover for thuggery.

    We ought to be asking much more sharply whether the “virtues” of anti-White racism are grounded in truth, and whether a position of anti-White racism can ever lead to a more just America.

    Pilfering and profiting is not enough. Victims must be destroyed.

    From Ron Unz:


    “In the early 2000s I read The Master Switch, a widely-praised history of modern communications technology by Columbia University professor Tim Wu, who has subsequently become a leading Internet-rights activist. I found the account fascinating, with so many stories never before known to me. However, I couldn’t help but notice that all the powerful mass-media technologies of our modern world–film, radio, and television–had been invented and pioneered by Gentiles, mostly of Anglo-Saxon origin, but in each case control was seized by ruthless Jewish businessmen, who sometimes destroyed the lives and careers of those creators. By the 1950s, nearly all of America’s leading concentrations of electronic media power—with the sole major exception of Disney Studios—were solidly in Jewish hands. In an open society such as ours, these are the central levers of political influence, and over the next generation or so, America’s long-dominant and heavily Anglo-Saxon ruling elite was replaced by a mostly Jewish one, a development I alluded to in my long Meritocracy article of a few years ago.”

    Since statistically nearly all "White" People got to the USA AFTER Slavery, most in the 20th Century -- there are basically no sins for White people in the USA to be "mindful" of -- meanwhile Black People are pouring in from Africa and Haiti -- more Black People have come to the USA in the few decades than were brought here in all of Slavery -- so if the USA is supposedly so "RAYCISSSSSS" what is up with that?

    The truth is that Racism in the USA was all but over when Obama figured to re-ignite the phony "Racism" we hear about now 24/7 for political reasons and did so with the help of the Mainslime Media and Communist Academia -- the Crime Statistics show that White People should be up in arms as to the attacks against them by Blacks, the rape statistics are that "one" Black woman was raped by a "White" last year and 10,000 White Women were raped by Black Men, Robberies and Murders etc. are all way out of whack given the population numbers at issue -- not the other way around as portrayed in the lying Mainslime Media -- that is where the "sin" we should be "mindful" of exists today in the USA

    How exactly does being damned by a nation’s elites for the real and imagined sins of one’s ancestors — while their virtues are dismissed — harm an individual? How exactly does the routine and selective application of this program destroy solidarity and diminish good will?

  15. School boards, often totally controlled by teachers’ unions, are deflecting from the fact that they are not prepared to reopen to in-class teaching. So, lets talk about racism or sexism. The City of San Francisco is suing their own school district and school board because they still are not open for in class learning. The school board has ‘a plan to discuss a plan’ to re open, after 10 months. The School Board President, a Ms. Lopez, said the kids are learning ‘ new things.” They are learning about their houses, their families and their heritage”, while at home. The SFUSD had enough time to plan to rename 44 schools. Buffalo’s teachers are in court to stay out of class. One teacher testified she saw mouse droppings and a dead mouse in a trap when she toured her shuttered school. Judge asked the School District Health Officer if the dead mouse would cause the school to be closed in pre flu days…no it would not. America needs to seriously examine its public schools. Stay safe.

    Years ago I often heard Japan criticized for insufficiently apologizing for its role in World War II, the terrible things it did in Korea and China, the Rape of Nanking, torture and murder of POWs, etc. I was in agreement with these criticisms.

    As I watched what was happening in my own nation, with constant discussion of America's sins, which could never be put behind us and absolutely never forgiven, I came to respect the Japanese approach. For a nation, as for an individual, it is unhealthy to spend an inordinate amount of time dwelling on your flaws and past sins. Psychologically, it destroys you.

    And then I realized that that was the whole point: not to make us a better people, but simply to destroy us.

    About Korea as part of the Japanese Empire
    Check out this book
    New Korea by Alleyne Ireland
    http://yeoksa.blog.fc2.com/blog-category-57.html

    Walter Alleyne Ireland was a British author and an expert on the subject of tropical colonies of the British empire.

    From the book
    The Japanese administration in Korea has done more to advance the interests of Korea than any other government has done to advance the interests of any country in the world… That Korean agricultural exports should have increased in little more than a decade by more than a thousand per cent; industrial exports by more than three thousand per cent, fishery exports by nearly three thousand per cent...would, if Korea were a self-governing country instead of a Japanese colonial dependency, be hailed throughout the Western world as an astounding example of national progress.”

    “… the credit is due chiefly to the humane and conciliatory attitude of Governor-General Saito toward the Korean people, and to the wise measures which, for more than six years, have been the fruit of an unstinting employment of his unusual energy and of his still more unusual administrative talents.”

    “… Vice-Governor-General Ariyoshi, one of Japan’s most expert and highly regarded civil administrators, a man whom, from my own observation, I know to be a tireless worker and sympathetic toward the Korean people.”

    Furthermore, Alleyne calls the Resident-General Ito Hirobumi “a sincere friend and well-wisher of Korea”. The Resident-General Ito was assassinated by a Korean nationalist An Jung-geun (安重根) in 1909, who is today praised by Koreans as a national hero!!!

    Slate does a deep dive and dishes on the Democrats:

    The next clip lingers on Joe Biden, with a vacant stare in his eyes and the video footage slowed, while Trump’s inauguration speech plays, “For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government, while the people have borne the cost.” It is clear from the image of Biden that he is not making the decisions.

    The video shifts to an image of Senator Charles Schumer, reminding the viewer of prominent Jewish leaders of the Democratic party. Schumer is wearing a Kente cloth, an image evocative of Ku Klux Klan ideology—that Jews support Black liberation movements as a way to undermine white rule and destroy the nation.

    The next frame shows the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, flanked by two Jewish Congressman, Reps. Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff. Pelosi, too, is controlled by Jews.

Teachers are tasked with implementing a broadly unpopular agenda, and are beginning to come under fire themselves for being too white. While many of them may go along with the party line in public, I doubt they are quite as enthusiastic about it as as they seem. Many of them have children in schools themselves, and they can’t be all that thrilled about some of what is on the table.

    So why not make it all about coronavirus and just refuse to go back to school until they can work out some deal that exempts them from the worst of this stuff?

    I think we’re going to see this happening across the board in institutions in liberal parts of the country. It’s sort of like the affirmative action evasion tech companies have been practicing for some time — the more you’re trying to avoid it the more you must display woke credentials, attack wreckers, be partisan, etc.

    Also, I’d like to add that people in power seem to be generally unaware of the extent to which ordinary Americans are simply dropping out of the system altogether. It’s as though the pie is noticeably shrinking. Among the people I know, many are so averse to public schools that they’ll avoid sending their kids to them even if they don’t have the means to send them to private school (or, in many cases, the motivation to homeschool). Schools have included a form of homeschooling as an option, doubtless to keep the kids on the rolls and secure funding, and lots of parents are choosing that, although in the cases I know of it’s a total fiction.

    Truth is, teaching public school students is an awful job. Teachers have no authority, can't get rid of troublemakers, are constantly told to make classes fun and engaging, go to stupid pro dev sessions to be hectored by non-teachers etc. And the pay really sucks.

    The 30-40% students who are failing because they never log in were also failing in class. Many schools have a no-fail policy. They're all socially promoted anyway and few students read at grade level and can't handle algebra I. Everyone basically has given up. Lots of turnover in teaching.

    It's not. Read what they say, they are hysterical babies who think they are very likely to die from Covid if they contract it. Many are also very lazy and enjoy teaching from home for a few hours a day. I would estimate the correlation between teachers who support continued remote learning and support pushing critical race theory and other woke ideology is school is well over 90%. Most of them went into education because they wanted to "make a difference or "change the world."

  23. “North Carolina’s state school board on Thursday approved new standards requiring social studies teachers to discuss racism.”

    Reporters are generally vague about the differences between statutes (public vote by a legislature and approval by the executive), regulations implementing those statutes (put into effect by an agency after a public notice and comment period), and guidelines (agency policy statements generally without the force of law). Perhaps that is because it is the exercise of power which interests and excites them, not whether the power is being exercised legitimately.

    IF the article is accurate, the people of North Carolina have allowed the creation of an unelected state school board which has the power to dictate all education curriculum (la?) statewide, just by a majority vote. The article hints that this is legally binding…I guess the good people of N.C. will find out, pretty soon.

    My ambition would be to develop history lessons regarding white history. It would be relatively easy and cheap for an individual or small organization to produce an online recorded lecture series specifically about white people and our history. It could be expansive and aimed at different ages. It would be impossible for it to be accredited but keep the content level high and interesting and it would be a great success.

    With the advent of teaching CRT and other nostrums in public schools this could be used to bolster or supplement a public or private school education. Parents, in the privacy of their own homes, could expose their children to a real and positive experience that is currently lacking. It would also make a very bold statement that whites can and will control their own narrative and it would probably rock the system. It would not have to be over the top, only direct, accurate, and unapologetic.

    We are currently homeschooling out elementary age school child. As such, we can pick much of the content that he sees including history, etc. Many of the parents are purposefully doing the same choosing a 'traditional' education. It is clear on the chat boards that this is a direct reaction to what is being taught in the PS system. Even the private and religious schools are becoming woke.

    The best part of this is that if Big Tech and the TPTB tried to stamp it out, it would go go underground and completely viral. Teaching my children about our history would no longer be in the hands of people who do not have their interests at heart.

  24. America is such a sad place. The populace is slinking around wearing multiple “virus” masks. Its leaders feature a corrupt old man suffering from dementia, along with evil comic book characters like Nadler, Schumer, Schiff and Pelosi.

    Granted, there are some beautiful landscapes. And its people did accomplish many great things in its past. But if one is honest, you would have to acknowledge it has been a decaying, dysfunctional dystopia for a good many years now.

    Don't underestimate the power of fellow-White (((Howard Zinn))) and his People's History of the United States, which was taught in every High School and/or college from 1980 on. The wikipedia page is enlightening, but here's a taste:

    . . . writing for The New York Times, columnist Michael Powell praised the text's impact on changing the perspective of modern histories:

    To describe it as a revisionist account is to risk understatement. A conventional historical account held no allure; he concentrated on what he saw as the genocidal depredations of Christopher Columbus, the blood lust of Theodore Roosevelt and the racial failings of Abraham Lincoln. He also shined an insistent light on the revolutionary struggles of impoverished farmers, feminists, laborers and resisters of slavery and war. Such stories are more often recounted in textbooks today; they were not at the time.[10]

    Writing in Dissent, Georgetown University history professor Michael Kazin argued that Zinn is too focused on class conflict, and wrongly attributes sinister motives to the American political elite. He characterized the book as an overly simplistic narrative of elite villains and oppressed people, with no attempt to understand historical actors in the context of the time in which they lived. Kazin wrote:

    The ironic effect of such portraits of rulers is to rob 'the people' of cultural richness and variety, characteristics that might gain the respect and not just the sympathy of contemporary readers. For Zinn, ordinary Americans seem to live only to fight the rich and haughty and, inevitably, to be fooled by them.[11]

    The Flyover State Department of Education last week made a public statement about re-opening the K - 12 system. Ok, well, the private schools have already been open for weeks, the community colleges and state uni's have started up hybrid with some online and some face-to-face, so...sure, at least get the high schools re-opened. Makes sense.

    Not so fast! Not so fast! Because multiple school boards have decided that they need to study on the issues, consult with teachers, cast a horoscope, read some Tarot cards, etc. before their schools re-open.

    I know teachers over 50 who aren't really keen on going back into the classroom. Some of them are really fat and so have at least one & probably more risk factors. They can't get vaccinated yet. I sympathize.

    But I also know truckers who have been rolling for most of the last year, and that means hauling loads through cities, refueling at not-so-touchless truck stops, staying in the sleeper because no hotels are open, and so forth. Nobody's offered truckers anything special, and they do their part to keep the world going. In fact when I'm on an Interstate I see more Amazon trucks, for obvious reasons.

    If teachers are afraid of their classroom, maybe they should learn to do something else that doesn't induce fear. Because the current situation is not working.

    Not. Working.

    I've been wondering recently whether the massive teachers' strike isn't a veiled protest against the woke juggernaut. Teachers are tasked with implementing a broadly unpopular agenda, and are beginning to come under fire themselves for being too white. While many of them may go along with the party line in public, I doubt they are quite as enthusiastic about it as as they seem. Many of them have children in schools themselves, and they can't be all that thrilled about some of what is on the table.

    So why not make it all about coronavirus and just refuse to go back to school until they can work out some deal that exempts them from the worst of this stuff?

    I think we're going to see this happening across the board in institutions in liberal parts of the country. It's sort of like the affirmative action evasion tech companies have been practicing for some time -- the more you're trying to avoid it the more you must display woke credentials, attack wreckers, be partisan, etc.

    Also, I'd like to add that people in power seem to be generally unaware of the extent to which ordinary Americans are simply dropping out of the system altogether. It's as though the pie is noticeably shrinking. Among the people I know, many are so averse to public schools that they'll avoid sending their kids to them even if they don't have the means to send them to private school (or, in many cases, the motivation to homeschool). Schools have included a form of homeschooling as an option, doubtless to keep the kids on the rolls and secure funding, and lots of parents are choosing that, although in the cases I know of it's a total fiction.

    There's broad institutional collapse ongoing in blue states and counties, and it's as though nobody cares. Never seen anything like it here in the US in my life.

    Don’t underestimate the power of fellow-White (((Howard Zinn))) and his People’s History of the United States, which was taught in every High School and/or college from 1980 on. The wikipedia page is enlightening, but here’s a taste:

    [MORE]

    . . . writing for The New York Times, columnist Michael Powell praised the text’s impact on changing the perspective of modern histories:

    To describe it as a revisionist account is to risk understatement. A conventional historical account held no allure; he concentrated on what he saw as the genocidal depredations of Christopher Columbus, the blood lust of Theodore Roosevelt and the racial failings of Abraham Lincoln. He also shined an insistent light on the revolutionary struggles of impoverished farmers, feminists, laborers and resisters of slavery and war. Such stories are more often recounted in textbooks today; they were not at the time.[10]

    Writing in Dissent, Georgetown University history professor Michael Kazin argued that Zinn is too focused on class conflict, and wrongly attributes sinister motives to the American political elite. He characterized the book as an overly simplistic narrative of elite villains and oppressed people, with no attempt to understand historical actors in the context of the time in which they lived. Kazin wrote:

    The ironic effect of such portraits of rulers is to rob ‘the people’ of cultural richness and variety, characteristics that might gain the respect and not just the sympathy of contemporary readers. For Zinn, ordinary Americans seem to live only to fight the rich and haughty and, inevitably, to be fooled by them.[11]

    Or to put it another, whites aren't doing anything to other races that they aren't doing to their own race. The current age is a bit like the Medieval Age, when elite whites exploited working class whites through feudalism and constantly lectured them about religious morals. However, instead of being exploited through feudalism, they're now exploited through debt bondage, and instead of being lectured about religious morals, modern white proles are lectured about the sins of racism, sexism, and nationalism.

    I've been wondering recently whether the massive teachers' strike isn't a veiled protest against the woke juggernaut. Teachers are tasked with implementing a broadly unpopular agenda, and are beginning to come under fire themselves for being too white. While many of them may go along with the party line in public, I doubt they are quite as enthusiastic about it as as they seem. Many of them have children in schools themselves, and they can't be all that thrilled about some of what is on the table.

    So why not make it all about coronavirus and just refuse to go back to school until they can work out some deal that exempts them from the worst of this stuff?

    I think we're going to see this happening across the board in institutions in liberal parts of the country. It's sort of like the affirmative action evasion tech companies have been practicing for some time -- the more you're trying to avoid it the more you must display woke credentials, attack wreckers, be partisan, etc.

    Also, I'd like to add that people in power seem to be generally unaware of the extent to which ordinary Americans are simply dropping out of the system altogether. It's as though the pie is noticeably shrinking. Among the people I know, many are so averse to public schools that they'll avoid sending their kids to them even if they don't have the means to send them to private school (or, in many cases, the motivation to homeschool). Schools have included a form of homeschooling as an option, doubtless to keep the kids on the rolls and secure funding, and lots of parents are choosing that, although in the cases I know of it's a total fiction.

    There's broad institutional collapse ongoing in blue states and counties, and it's as though nobody cares. Never seen anything like it here in the US in my life.

    Do you think that maybe they don't actually want to teach the new woke curriculum? I'd be nervous about it if I were a teacher. Some parents are not going to react well, and a lot are going to highly resent them for it.

    You know, in the post-war resistance in Eastern Europe (Ukraine in particular), teachers bore a lot of the brunt of popular anger against the USSR. OUN specifically targeted them in many cases. Eventually the Soviets started handing out medals to teachers:

    The Flyover State Department of Education last week made a public statement about re-opening the K – 12 system. Ok, well, the private schools have already been open for weeks, the community colleges and state uni’s have started up hybrid with some online and some face-to-face, so…sure, at least get the high schools re-opened. Makes sense.

    Not so fast! Not so fast! Because multiple school boards have decided that they need to study on the issues, consult with teachers, cast a horoscope, read some Tarot cards, etc. before their schools re-open.

    I know teachers over 50 who aren’t really keen on going back into the classroom. Some of them are really fat and so have at least one & probably more risk factors. They can’t get vaccinated yet. I sympathize.

    But I also know truckers who have been rolling for most of the last year, and that means hauling loads through cities, refueling at not-so-touchless truck stops, staying in the sleeper because no hotels are open, and so forth. Nobody’s offered truckers anything special, and they do their part to keep the world going. In fact when I’m on an Interstate I see more Amazon trucks, for obvious reasons.

    If teachers are afraid of their classroom, maybe they should learn to do something else that doesn’t induce fear. Because the current situation is not working.

    Not. Working.

    The school situation in the USA is bizarre. Here in Australia the schools reopened months ago and there was no resultant spike in covid cases.

    @anon

    My solution would have been to offer the vaccine to all teachers first. It would have been relatively easy to assemble all of them and administer the shots en masse. This would have then allowed the schools to reopen helping the children get back to a classroom environment and their parents back to work. It would also have been very popular politically and easy to promote. Seeing that 90% of the teachers support the Democrats and voted the current regime into power, make it mandatory. If they don't come back, can them. It is what they asked for.

    All the bellyaching we are getting from the teachers about 'safety' issues is only half the issue. Many are just dragging their feet because they can hide behind the children and their 'safety'. Many teach specifically because it is a 'safe' job. No traveling, night work, heavy lifting, etc. If Covid-19 is an occupational risk, it is only moderate at best. Due to my circumstances, I had to take many low paying PHYSICAL HIGH RISK low status jobs so getting Covid (already had it) pales in comparison. This is true for any one who is in construction or works outdoors. Work break is over.

    It’s not. Read what they say, they are hysterical babies who think they are very likely to die from Covid if they contract it. Many are also very lazy and enjoy teaching from home for a few hours a day. I would estimate the correlation between teachers who support continued remote learning and support pushing critical race theory and other woke ideology is school is well over 90%.

There was one school where they were talking about lynching the Tea Party in the faculty lounge and I very politely questioned it and got a call into the principal’s office telling me it wasn’t a good idea for subs to get above their station.

    Another similar thing happened the next year at another school when merit pay came up. They can tell who’s on the team and I eventually kept my head down and was accepted but HR just hired straight out of school to prevent any possibility of those kind of issues.

    There was another school where they posted new hires on the wall of the admin offices and hadn’t hired a white man in four years. Pretty clearly a need not apply situation. This was at the same time there were ads running on the radio trying to convince people to pursue a second career in teaching, so you know whatever.

    The problem with that is that that public school teachers in NC won’t actually work — the NC public schools are mostly still closed.

This impedes their main mission of indoctrination of the children of the working and middle classes to hate their parents and their country.

I found the account fascinating, with so many stories never before known to me. However, I couldn’t help but notice that all the powerful mass-media technologies of our modern world–film, radio, and television–had been invented and pioneered by Gentiles, mostly of Anglo-Saxon origin, but in each case control was seized by ruthless Jewish businessmen, who sometimes destroyed the lives and careers of those creators. By the 1950s, nearly all of America’s leading concentrations of electronic media power—with the sole major exception of Disney Studios—were solidly in Jewish hands. In an open society such as ours, these are the central levers of political influence, and over the next generation or so, America’s long-dominant and heavily Anglo-Saxon ruling elite was replaced by a mostly Jewish one, a development I alluded to in my long Meritocracy article of a few years ago.”

    Bill, I am confused. Here in WNY, where you can cross over into Canada at four bridge crossings, there is no traffic, other than commercial trucks, allowed from the States into Canada. And no traffic from Canada, other than commercial trucks, allowed into NYS. trudeau and cuomo are butt buddies, and both failing miserably in their handling of Covid. Now, a most interesting thing my iStever friends, while Yanks cannot travel to Canada to check on their property in the land of the Beaver, Canadian Snow Birds can helicopter from Canada to an executive airfield in Buffalo, bringing their luggage and pets with them, and then have their cars shipped to the same airfield so they can continue to the sunny shores and links of the USA ( featured article in the Buffalo News.) One commenter said he sold his cottage on Lake Erie but could not retreive his personal possessions and a friend of mine from church had to have a Canadian neighbor hire a contractor to do roofing at his Ontario cottage as he was not allowed to inspect his cottage. Bill are you a member of the Mohawk Nation? Otherwise why are your girls going to school in Canada?

    Here in Whatcom County it's pretty much the same, but there are exceptions, like the Indians, and more recently for people with legal reasons, such as those who have court-ordered parenting plans (like me). So I can technically cross into Canada to exercise my custodial rights without having to quarantine, but only for what's explicitly stated on the order. I've chosen not to bother with the hassle since the kids are big enough to cross themselves. So I just drive up to Blaine and wait for them to cross, then after my time I drop them off at the border when it's time for them to go back.

    It was pretty surreal over the summer, because people who missed their relatives, spouses, lovers, etc., set up tents in the Peace Park up there. US Customs allowed the impromptu reunions, but the Canadians didn't, so all the tents were set up on the American side. It was like a cross between a carnival and a homeless encampment (lots of those on the West Coast lately).

    I am as far west as you can get on the American/Canadian land border, with the exception of Point Roberts (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_Roberts,_Washington), the little pene-exclave that juts out into the Strait of Georgia, forming Boundary Bay. Point Roberts is supposedly where they put mafia rats in the witness protection program because you have to cross two borders to get there.

    The Jews naturally trademarked the best word: Anti-Semitism. It sounds bad, but it's just vague enough to cover whatever you need it to. Who even know what "Semitism" is? Could be cultural, racial, religious, geopolitical (i.e., Israel), ideological (Zionism). But if you are against it you are very bad indeed, by definition.

    One of the creepier developments on the woke left has been defining white people as adherents to some evil ideology of "Whiteness." I doubt "anti-Whiteism" would ever catch on, but someone needs to coin the right word to name this phenomenon.

    It's amazing how an effective word can change the debate. Think how much mileage the wokesters have gotten out of "white privilege" and "systemic racism." The good guys occasionally score a verbal hit too, such as "virtue signaling" and (going way back) "political correctness."

    Joe, while only a dope would argue that Ohio is New York State lacrosse-wise, but, it's actually, as I'm sure your son can tell you, not bad- The greater Columbus area in particular has a high end DI team, the Buckeyes, and two top level D III squads, Denison, and Ohio Wesleyan, where one of my boys played. Denison and OWU play in a league where there isn't as much competition, not exactly the Empire 8, the Liberty league or NESCAC! A bunch of good HS programs in Columbus, too.

    My youngest, who had a great career at Beloit College (yeah, I know, not exactly the top of the mark) lives in Springfield, OH, and is looking to get involved in youth lax, somehow- he's coached HS and club in both MA and CO; and because he was one of those guys who had to work hard to make himself into a good player, he's a good coach.

    We haven't heard about NESCAC yet- if I were a betting man I'd say no season. Sad for me, as I live literally a block from the Amherst College Field, although they were going to have a weird season anyway, due to their coach having been dismissed and the team suspended from post-season play due to (bogus, IMHO) allegations of racism.

    If there is lax in Western New York (two years ago at the Frozen Four I was politely instructed on the difference between "Upstate" and "Western" New York) I'm going to take my retired butt out your way and take in some games.

    The 30-40% students who are failing because they never log in were also failing in class. Many schools have a no-fail policy. They're all socially promoted anyway and few students read at grade level and can't handle algebra I. Everyone basically has given up. Lots of turnover in teaching.

Ok, well, the private schools have already been open for weeks, the community colleges and state uni's have started up hybrid with some online and some face-to-face, so...sure, at least get the high schools re-opened. Makes sense.

    Not so fast! Not so fast! Because multiple school boards have decided that they need to study on the issues, consult with teachers, cast a horoscope, read some Tarot cards, etc. before their schools re-open.

    I know teachers over 50 who aren't really keen on going back into the classroom. Some of them are really fat and so have at least one & probably more risk factors. They can't get vaccinated yet. I sympathize.

    But I also know truckers who have been rolling for most of the last year, and that means hauling loads through cities, refueling at not-so-touchless truck stops, staying in the sleeper because no hotels are open, and so forth. Nobody's offered truckers anything special, and they do their part to keep the world going. In fact when I'm on an Interstate I see more Amazon trucks, for obvious reasons.

    If teachers are afraid of their classroom, maybe they should learn to do something else that doesn't induce fear. Because the current situation is not working.

The school board has 'a plan to discuss a plan' to re open, after 10 months. The School Board President, a Ms. Lopez, said the kids are learning ' new things." They are learning about their houses, their families and their heritage", while at home. The SFUSD had enough time to plan to rename 44 schools. Buffalo's teachers are in court to stay out of class. One teacher testified she saw mouse droppings and a dead mouse in a trap when she toured her shuttered school.

    There was another school where they posted new hires on the wall of the admin offices and hadn’t hired a white man in four years. Pretty clearly a need not apply situation. This was at the same time there were ads running on the radio trying to convince people to pursue a second career in teaching, so you know whatever.

    But none dare call it what it is: anti-white racism.

    Spot on, Steve. I'm sort of a fan of the "rectification of names" (thanks Confucius) here, so calling anti-White racism, rooted in Black Supremacism and strains of Marxism, anti-American, anti-capitalist, and anti-democratic makes as much sense to me as calling plastics anti-wood, or anti-metal, or anti-ceramic, or anti-ivory.

    The stoneware and porcelain makers who privately flailed about over paper plates and Tupperware probably had to decide whether and how to make their peace with those upstart products that were cutting into their revenues because they possessed some objectively identifiable virtues that ceramics lacked.

    I'll cut my windbaggery short. Anti-White racism has "virtues" to its adherents, individuals and big corporations alike. We talk about those "virtues", wage-cutting, divide-and-conquer politics, unearned redistribution, the prospect of "reparations" etc. I'm not sure such a "virtue" is a virtue at all, but more like verbal cover for thuggery.

    We ought to be asking much more sharply whether the "virtues" of anti-White racism are grounded in truth, and whether a position of anti-White racism can ever lead to a more just America.

    The Flyover State Department of Education last week made a public statement about re-opening the K - 12 system. Ok, well, the private schools have already been open for weeks, the community colleges and state uni's have started up hybrid with some online and some face-to-face, so...sure, at least get the high schools re-opened. Makes sense.

    Not so fast! Not so fast! Because multiple school boards have decided that they need to study on the issues, consult with teachers, cast a horoscope, read some Tarot cards, etc. before their schools re-open.

    I know teachers over 50 who aren't really keen on going back into the classroom. Some of them are really fat and so have at least one & probably more risk factors. They can't get vaccinated yet. I sympathize.

    But I also know truckers who have been rolling for most of the last year, and that means hauling loads through cities, refueling at not-so-touchless truck stops, staying in the sleeper because no hotels are open, and so forth. Nobody's offered truckers anything special, and they do their part to keep the world going. In fact when I'm on an Interstate I see more Amazon trucks, for obvious reasons.

    If teachers are afraid of their classroom, maybe they should learn to do something else that doesn't induce fear. Because the current situation is not working.

    Not. Working.

  130. None Dare Call It Anti-White Racism

    Good until you deployed the “racism” trope. The R word functions solely as an anti-White slur in the current year. It should never be taken seriously or used unironically, and certainly not used when the intended meaning is “anti-White hatred” — since it is a term that is used to express anti-White hatred, not to call it out.

    Deeper dive: meaning is determined by usage. The R word is hopelessly tainted at this point; imbued with a century’s worth of strong, emotionally-loaded connotations due to its constant use in anti-White propaganda, beginning with the early days of pseudoscientific Boasian race denialism, and progressing to what is now the hegemonic ideology with respect to race — critical race theory.

    Conservatives often have a somewhat distorted understanding of the R word’s meaning, thinking that it means something like “excessive in-group preference with respect to one’s own race, especially if the offender is of European descent,” with a vague connotation of “badwhyte.” “Conservative” leaders encourage this misunderstanding, which is also utilized as a motte by shitlibs and anti-Whites when it’s rhetorically convenient. But the conservative narrative is clearly not the hegemonic one. What is the definition utilized by those who are actually in control of The Narrative?

    For an overview of critical race theory from its proponents, see the link to the hallowed halls of Harvard above or this. For a view from quasi-opponents [interesting that they somehow “forgot” to mention the critical role of Alan Freeman in constructing and promulgating CRT], see this.

    The main tenets of critical race theory dogma amount to:
    1. All Whites are “racist”
    2. Only Whites can be “racist”
    3. “Racism” is a concept with a vague and shifting denotation, but a strongly negative connotation — whatever it is, it’s bad, and people who possess this quality should be hated and despised.

    In other words, the R word is simply a pejorative term for the indigenous peoples of Europe and their diaspora; an anti-White slur. Calling non-Whites and anti-Whites the R word is meaningless; they see it as comical — and they’re right. Like a Black person calling you a “n—-r.” Similarly, if you try to claim “B-b-but I’m not a ‘racist’!” it’s as if a Black were to protest “B-b-but I’m not a n—-r!”

    A related point of critical race theory goes something like “‘Whiteness’ is a toxic ‘social construct’ that is inextricably linked to systemic ‘racism’ and ‘White supreemism’. The only way to eradicate ‘racism’ is to destroy Whiteness”*. This is a good example of this sort of rhetoric:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20200205223618/https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/toxic-whiteness-healing-white-people-internalised-racism-woman-sandra-kim-new-york-a7595216.html

    “Sandra Kim*, the US-based founder of the Everyday Feminism website, thinks she has the answer (sort of) with her course Healing from Toxic Whiteness.”
    [*See the last 2 paragraphs of this comment].

    And what do we have here?
    “Kim launched the course in October 2016 with help from Dara Silverman…”

    Every. Single. Time.

    They’re not actually talking about deconstructing/ eliminating “Whiteness,” of course. They’re talking about eliminating Whites. Just imagine if we were to hear similar rhetoric directed at the Tribe: “Jewishness is a toxic social construct that is inextricably linked to semitic supremacism and systemic semitism. The only possible way to eliminate systemic semitism and build a more tolerant society is to deconstruct/ destroy jewishness.” Oy vey. It would be like anudda shoah all over again.

    Royal Navy Versus the Slave Traders: Enforcing Abolition at Sea 1808-1898 by Bernard Edwards

    On 16 March 1807, the British Parliament passed The Abolition of the Slave Trade Act. In the following year the Royal Navy’s African Squadron was formed, its mission to stop and search ships at sea suspected of carrying slaves from Africa to the Americas and the Middle East. With typical thoroughness, the World's most powerful Navy, the British Royal Navy went further, and took the fight to the enemy, sailing boldly up uncharted rivers and creeks to attack the barracoons where the slaves were assembled ready for shipment. For much of its long campaign against the evil of slavery Britain’s Navy fought alone and unrecognised. Its enemies were many and formidable. Ranged against it were the African chiefs, who sold their own people into slavery, the Arabs, who rode shotgun on the slave caravans to the coast, and the slave ships of the rest of the world, heavily armed, and prepared to do battle to protect their right to traffic in the forbidden black ivory. The war was long and bitter and the cost to the Royal Navy in ships and men heavy, but the result was worthy of the sacrifices made. The abolition of the slave trade led to a scramble for empires.

    Exactly this. The framework for thinking something is anti-white has been successfully marginalized by the same school curricula now being resisted. The more the left pushes this agenda the more whites will begin to see it in explicitly racial terms. Duh.

    It seems like the left knows this, along with the fact that they've vastly overplayed their hand, and are now accelerating their doubling down hoping it won't be noticed until it is too late.

    Racism is, and has always been, a fake word. No honest person can use it. Anti-white is more valid, but it sounds whiny, and is complicated by the distraction that whites’ worst enemy is other whites in power.
     
    The Jews naturally trademarked the best word: Anti-Semitism. It sounds bad, but it's just vague enough to cover whatever you need it to. Who even know what "Semitism" is? Could be cultural, racial, religious, geopolitical (i.e., Israel), ideological (Zionism). But if you are against it you are very bad indeed, by definition.

    One of the creepier developments on the woke left has been defining white people as adherents to some evil ideology of "Whiteness." I doubt "anti-Whiteism" would ever catch on, but someone needs to coin the right word to name this phenomenon.

    It's amazing how an effective word can change the debate. Think how much mileage the wokesters have gotten out of "white privilege" and "systemic racism." The good guys occasionally score a verbal hit too, such as "virtue signaling" and (going way back) "political correctness."

    Since statistically nearly all “White” People got to the USA AFTER Slavery, most in the 20th Century — there are basically no sins for White people in the USA to be “mindful” of — meanwhile Black People are pouring in from Africa and Haiti — more Black People have come to the USA in the few decades than were brought here in all of Slavery — so if the USA is supposedly so “RAYCISSSSSS” what is up with that?

    The truth is that Racism in the USA was all but over when Obama figured to re-ignite the phony “Racism” we hear about now 24/7 for political reasons and did so with the help of the Mainslime Media and Communist Academia — the Crime Statistics show that White People should be up in arms as to the attacks against them by Blacks, the rape statistics are that “one” Black woman was raped by a “White” last year and 10,000 White Women were raped by Black Men, Robberies and Murders etc. are all way out of whack given the population numbers at issue — not the other way around as portrayed in the lying Mainslime Media — that is where the “sin” we should be “mindful” of exists today in the USA

    The Flyover State Department of Education last week made a public statement about re-opening the K - 12 system. Ok, well, the private schools have already been open for weeks, the community colleges and state uni's have started up hybrid with some online and some face-to-face, so...sure, at least get the high schools re-opened. Makes sense.

    Not so fast! Not so fast! Because multiple school boards have decided that they need to study on the issues, consult with teachers, cast a horoscope, read some Tarot cards, etc. before their schools re-open.

    I know teachers over 50 who aren't really keen on going back into the classroom. Some of them are really fat and so have at least one & probably more risk factors. They can't get vaccinated yet. I sympathize.

    But I also know truckers who have been rolling for most of the last year, and that means hauling loads through cities, refueling at not-so-touchless truck stops, staying in the sleeper because no hotels are open, and so forth. Nobody's offered truckers anything special, and they do their part to keep the world going. In fact when I'm on an Interstate I see more Amazon trucks, for obvious reasons.

    If teachers are afraid of their classroom, maybe they should learn to do something else that doesn't induce fear. Because the current situation is not working.

    Not. Working.

    Years ago I often heard Japan criticized for insufficiently apologizing for its role in World War II, the terrible things it did in Korea and China, the Rape of Nanking, torture and murder of POWs, etc. I was in agreement with these criticisms.

    As I watched what was happening in my own nation, with constant discussion of America's sins, which could never be put behind us and absolutely never forgiven, I came to respect the Japanese approach. For a nation, as for an individual, it is unhealthy to spend an inordinate amount of time dwelling on your flaws and past sins. Psychologically, it destroys you.

    And then I realized that that was the whole point: not to make us a better people, but simply to destroy us.

    Years ago I often heard Japan criticized for insufficiently apologizing for its role in World War II, the terrible things it did in Korea and China, the Rape of Nanking, torture and murder of POWs, etc.

    There’s a lengthy Wikipedia article with a list of aplogies that Japan has made. I myself am responsible for some of the entries, because I live in Japan and read about them in local media, although oddly they never make it into Korean, Chinese, or American media. I eventually just gave up working on the piece, since the apologies just keep flowing: There are many more than make it into Wikipedia.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_war_apology_statements_issued_by_Japan

    Beyond apologies Japan has paid reparations of various sorts to Korea, repeatedly, and every few years more are demanded by Korean pressure groups. The lesson of reparations is that there is no closure to it. Even if you seem to have a single negotiating counterpart, the official government of the country, a new administration will disavow what the previous has done. Now the South Korea supreme court has gotten into the act, threatening to seize assets of Japanese businesses.

    I think the big difference between China/Korea and Japan is education. Japan is criticized for not having enough on the war in textbooks. As a result Japanese don’t have strong feelings about the matter. China and Korea practice hate education and induce hatred for Japanese in kids from a young age. Which educational approach is morally correct? Who cares. The Japanese approach works and the Chinese/Korean approach doesn’t work, in producing a cooperative modern world. Do what works, not what doesn’t work.

Never do you hear of the blacks slaughtering the early settlers, or how some hostile, waring tribes decimated other weaker aboriginals. They even complain that their native tongue isn’t taught in schools, even though there are hundreds of dialects very few natives can talk.

In the following year the Royal Navy’s African Squadron was formed, its mission to stop and search ships at sea suspected of carrying slaves from Africa to the Americas and the Middle East. With typical thoroughness, the World’s most powerful Navy, the British Royal Navy went further, and took the fight to the enemy, sailing boldly up uncharted rivers and creeks to attack the barracoons where the slaves were assembled ready for shipment. For much of its long campaign against the evil of slavery Britain’s Navy fought alone and unrecognised. Its enemies were many and formidable. Ranged against it were the African chiefs, who sold their own people into slavery, the Arabs, who rode shotgun on the slave caravans to the coast, and the slave ships of the rest of the world, heavily armed, and prepared to do battle to protect their right to traffic in the forbidden black ivory. The war was long and bitter and the cost to the Royal Navy in ships and men heavy, but the result was worthy of the sacrifices made. The abolition of the slave trade led to a scramble for empires.

    The Flyover State Department of Education last week made a public statement about re-opening the K - 12 system. Ok, well, the private schools have already been open for weeks, the community colleges and state uni's have started up hybrid with some online and some face-to-face, so...sure, at least get the high schools re-opened. Makes sense.

    Not so fast! Not so fast! Because multiple school boards have decided that they need to study on the issues, consult with teachers, cast a horoscope, read some Tarot cards, etc. before their schools re-open.

    I know teachers over 50 who aren't really keen on going back into the classroom. Some of them are really fat and so have at least one & probably more risk factors. They can't get vaccinated yet. I sympathize.

    But I also know truckers who have been rolling for most of the last year, and that means hauling loads through cities, refueling at not-so-touchless truck stops, staying in the sleeper because no hotels are open, and so forth. Nobody's offered truckers anything special, and they do their part to keep the world going. In fact when I'm on an Interstate I see more Amazon trucks, for obvious reasons.

    If teachers are afraid of their classroom, maybe they should learn to do something else that doesn't induce fear. Because the current situation is not working.

    Not. Working.

    Distance ed is like self paced; only the most motivated will benefit. The average will slide behind, and weak students might as well sit at the PS or Switch all day.

    Replies: @Thatgirl, @Desiderius, @Photondancer, @Prof. Woland

    My solution would have been to offer the vaccine to all teachers first. It would have been relatively easy to assemble all of them and administer the shots en masse. This would have then allowed the schools to reopen helping the children get back to a classroom environment and their parents back to work. It would also have been very popular politically and easy to promote. Seeing that 90% of the teachers support the Democrats and voted the current regime into power, make it mandatory. If they don’t come back, can them. It is what they asked for.

    All the bellyaching we are getting from the teachers about ‘safety’ issues is only half the issue. Many are just dragging their feet because they can hide behind the children and their ‘safety’. Many teach specifically because it is a ‘safe’ job. No traveling, night work, heavy lifting, etc. If Covid-19 is an occupational risk, it is only moderate at best. Due to my circumstances, I had to take many low paying PHYSICAL HIGH RISK low status jobs so getting Covid (already had it) pales in comparison. This is true for any one who is in construction or works outdoors. Work break is over.

    "North Carolina’s state school board on Thursday approved new standards requiring social studies teachers to discuss racism."

    Reporters are generally vague about the differences between statutes (public vote by a legislature and approval by the executive), regulations implementing those statutes (put into effect by an agency after a public notice and comment period), and guidelines (agency policy statements generally without the force of law). Perhaps that is because it is the exercise of power which interests and excites them, not whether the power is being exercised legitimately.

    IF the article is accurate, the people of North Carolina have allowed the creation of an unelected state school board which has the power to dictate all education curriculum (la?) statewide, just by a majority vote. The article hints that this is legally binding...I guess the good people of N.C. will find out, pretty soon.

    Replies: @Prof. Woland

    My ambition would be to develop history lessons regarding white history. It would be relatively easy and cheap for an individual or small organization to produce an online recorded lecture series specifically about white people and our history. It could be expansive and aimed at different ages. It would be impossible for it to be accredited but keep the content level high and interesting and it would be a great success.

    With the advent of teaching CRT and other nostrums in public schools this could be used to bolster or supplement a public or private school education. Parents, in the privacy of their own homes, could expose their children to a real and positive experience that is currently lacking. It would also make a very bold statement that whites can and will control their own narrative and it would probably rock the system. It would not have to be over the top, only direct, accurate, and unapologetic.

    We are currently homeschooling out elementary age school child. As such, we can pick much of the content that he sees including history, etc. Many of the parents are purposefully doing the same choosing a ‘traditional’ education. It is clear on the chat boards that this is a direct reaction to what is being taught in the PS system. Even the private and religious schools are becoming woke.

    The best part of this is that if Big Tech and the TPTB tried to stamp it out, it would go go underground and completely viral. Teaching my children about our history would no longer be in the hands of people who do not have their interests at heart.

    I actually think that most teachers would prefer to be back in the classroom, but perhaps I’m fooling myself. Younger teachers are way more woke.

    None Dare Call It Anti-White Racism
     
    Good until you deployed the "racism" trope. The R word functions solely as an anti-White slur in the current year. It should never be taken seriously or used unironically, and certainly not used when the intended meaning is "anti-White hatred" -- since it is a term that is used to express anti-White hatred, not to call it out.

    Deeper dive: meaning is determined by usage. The R word is hopelessly tainted at this point; imbued with a century's worth of strong, emotionally-loaded connotations due to its constant use in anti-White propaganda, beginning with the early days of pseudoscientific Boasian race denialism, and progressing to what is now the hegemonic ideology with respect to race -- critical race theory.

    Conservatives often have a somewhat distorted understanding of the R word's meaning, thinking that it means something like "excessive in-group preference with respect to one's own race, especially if the offender is of European descent," with a vague connotation of "badwhyte." "Conservative" leaders encourage this misunderstanding, which is also utilized as a motte by shitlibs and anti-Whites when it's rhetorically convenient. But the conservative narrative is clearly not the hegemonic one. What is the definition utilized by those who are actually in control of The Narrative?

    For an overview of critical race theory from its proponents, see the link to the hallowed halls of Harvard above or this. For a view from quasi-opponents [interesting that they somehow "forgot" to mention the critical role of Alan Freeman in constructing and promulgating CRT], see this.

    The main tenets of critical race theory dogma amount to:
    1. All Whites are "racist"
    2. Only Whites can be "racist"
    3. "Racism" is a concept with a vague and shifting denotation, but a strongly negative connotation -- whatever it is, it's bad, and people who possess this quality should be hated and despised.

    In other words, the R word is simply a pejorative term for the indigenous peoples of Europe and their diaspora; an anti-White slur. Calling non-Whites and anti-Whites the R word is meaningless; they see it as comical -- and they're right. Like a Black person calling you a "n----r." Similarly, if you try to claim "B-b-but I'm not a 'racist'!" it's as if a Black were to protest "B-b-but I'm not a n----r!"

    A related point of critical race theory goes something like "'Whiteness' is a toxic 'social construct' that is inextricably linked to systemic 'racism' and 'White supreemism'. The only way to eradicate 'racism' is to destroy Whiteness"*. This is a good example of this sort of rhetoric:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20200205223618/https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/toxic-whiteness-healing-white-people-internalised-racism-woman-sandra-kim-new-york-a7595216.html

    "Sandra Kim*, the US-based founder of the Everyday Feminism website, thinks she has the answer (sort of) with her course Healing from Toxic Whiteness."
    [*See the last 2 paragraphs of this comment].

    And what do we have here?
    "Kim launched the course in October 2016 with help from Dara Silverman..."

    Every. Single. Time.

    They're not actually talking about deconstructing/ eliminating "Whiteness," of course. They're talking about eliminating Whites. Just imagine if we were to hear similar rhetoric directed at the Tribe: "Jewishness is a toxic social construct that is inextricably linked to semitic supremacism and systemic semitism. The only possible way to eliminate systemic semitism and build a more tolerant society is to deconstruct/ destroy jewishness." Oy vey. It would be like anudda shoah all over again.

    Here in Whatcom County it’s pretty much the same, but there are exceptions, like the Indians, and more recently for people with legal reasons, such as those who have court-ordered parenting plans (like me). So I can technically cross into Canada to exercise my custodial rights without having to quarantine, but only for what’s explicitly stated on the order. I’ve chosen not to bother with the hassle since the kids are big enough to cross themselves. So I just drive up to Blaine and wait for them to cross, then after my time I drop them off at the border when it’s time for them to go back.

    It was pretty surreal over the summer, because people who missed their relatives, spouses, lovers, etc., set up tents in the Peace Park up there. US Customs allowed the impromptu reunions, but the Canadians didn’t, so all the tents were set up on the American side. It was like a cross between a carnival and a homeless encampment (lots of those on the West Coast lately).

    I am as far west as you can get on the American/Canadian land border, with the exception of Point Roberts (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_Roberts,_Washington), the little pene-exclave that juts out into the Strait of Georgia, forming Boundary Bay.

    An unfortunate fact, a lot of this is a contagion that is spreading, now rearing it’s ugly head here in my country. Every year there seems to be a new history concerning the aborigines, and how they have suffered in the past. It’s always the same. The whites did bad things. Never do you hear of the blacks slaughtering the early settlers, or how some hostile, waring tribes decimated other weaker aboriginals. They even complain that their native tongue isn’t taught in schools, even though there are hundreds of dialects very few natives can talk.
    We just saw another years Australia Day celebrated, only to be hijacked by angry white-blacks intent on pushing their agenda. One year it is survival day, the next it’s invasion day. Some of them were even demanding million dollar payouts for whatever happened centuries ago, to ease their suffering of course. I have never really heard of anything like this happening in countries such as Russia or China, which both have a rather mixed demographic.

    That’s right! The enslavement of criminal no good Africans is and was a good thing. Not a bad thing. You will shackle them up and sell them as property or you will shackle them up committing violent crimes. Take your pick. Either way they will be shackled. America’s answer to this today is unshackle them! The reason is because this country is run by deceived women (liberalism is a woman’s thinking. That’s why it doesn’t make any sense). When white men run the country and white men only, you have what we had at our founding. Goodness, greatness, freedom, bill of rights, independence, etc.

    Slate does a deep dive and dishes on the Democrats:

    https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2021/02/maga-nazi-propaganda-january-sixth-ellipse-video.html


    The next clip lingers on Joe Biden, with a vacant stare in his eyes and the video footage slowed, while Trump’s inauguration speech plays, “For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government, while the people have borne the cost.” It is clear from the image of Biden that he is not making the decisions.

    The video shifts to an image of Senator Charles Schumer, reminding the viewer of prominent Jewish leaders of the Democratic party. Schumer is wearing a Kente cloth, an image evocative of Ku Klux Klan ideology—that Jews support Black liberation movements as a way to undermine white rule and destroy the nation.

    The next frame shows the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, flanked by two Jewish Congressman, Reps. Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff. Pelosi, too, is controlled by Jews.

    Notice that she doesn’t claim any of this is “fake”. Joe does have a vacant look; Schumer is wearing African garb; Pelosi is flanked by two powerful Jews.

    They’ve moved from attacking “fake news” to attacking “news”.

    Essentially: “You’re pointing things out. SO DID THE NAZIS!”

    If we assume a logical consistency, the idea is that noticing ITSELF is wrong.

    Here in Whatcom County it's pretty much the same, but there are exceptions, like the Indians, and more recently for people with legal reasons, such as those who have court-ordered parenting plans (like me). So I can technically cross into Canada to exercise my custodial rights without having to quarantine, but only for what's explicitly stated on the order. I've chosen not to bother with the hassle since the kids are big enough to cross themselves. So I just drive up to Blaine and wait for them to cross, then after my time I drop them off at the border when it's time for them to go back.

    It was pretty surreal over the summer, because people who missed their relatives, spouses, lovers, etc., set up tents in the Peace Park up there. US Customs allowed the impromptu reunions, but the Canadians didn't, so all the tents were set up on the American side. It was like a cross between a carnival and a homeless encampment (lots of those on the West Coast lately).

    I am as far west as you can get on the American/Canadian land border, with the exception of Point Roberts (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_Roberts,_Washington), the little pene-exclave that juts out into the Strait of Georgia, forming Boundary Bay. Point Roberts is supposedly where they put mafia rats in the witness protection program because you have to cross two borders to get there.

    Royal Navy Versus the Slave Traders: Enforcing Abolition at Sea 1808-1898 by Bernard Edwards

    On 16 March 1807, the British Parliament passed The Abolition of the Slave Trade Act. In the following year the Royal Navy’s African Squadron was formed, its mission to stop and search ships at sea suspected of carrying slaves from Africa to the Americas and the Middle East. With typical thoroughness, the World's most powerful Navy, the British Royal Navy went further, and took the fight to the enemy, sailing boldly up uncharted rivers and creeks to attack the barracoons where the slaves were assembled ready for shipment. For much of its long campaign against the evil of slavery Britain’s Navy fought alone and unrecognised. Its enemies were many and formidable. Ranged against it were the African chiefs, who sold their own people into slavery, the Arabs, who rode shotgun on the slave caravans to the coast, and the slave ships of the rest of the world, heavily armed, and prepared to do battle to protect their right to traffic in the forbidden black ivory. The war was long and bitter and the cost to the Royal Navy in ships and men heavy, but the result was worthy of the sacrifices made. The abolition of the slave trade led to a scramble for empires.

    Years ago I often heard Japan criticized for insufficiently apologizing for its role in World War II, the terrible things it did in Korea and China, the Rape of Nanking, torture and murder of POWs, etc. I was in agreement with these criticisms.

    As I watched what was happening in my own nation, with constant discussion of America's sins, which could never be put behind us and absolutely never forgiven, I came to respect the Japanese approach. For a nation, as for an individual, it is unhealthy to spend an inordinate amount of time dwelling on your flaws and past sins. Psychologically, it destroys you.

    And then I realized that that was the whole point: not to make us a better people, but simply to destroy us.

    Oh, wait. They don’t drone nobody. Gee, I wonder why. I mean, the greatest country in the world drones people every day. Including American citizens. Without trial.

    Racism is, and has always been, a fake word. No honest person can use it. Anti-white is more valid, but it sounds whiny, and is complicated by the distraction that whites’ worst enemy is other whites in power.
     
    The Jews naturally trademarked the best word: Anti-Semitism. It sounds bad, but it's just vague enough to cover whatever you need it to. Who even know what "Semitism" is? Could be cultural, racial, religious, geopolitical (i.e., Israel), ideological (Zionism). But if you are against it you are very bad indeed, by definition.

    One of the creepier developments on the woke left has been defining white people as adherents to some evil ideology of "Whiteness." I doubt "anti-Whiteism" would ever catch on, but someone needs to coin the right word to name this phenomenon.

    It's amazing how an effective word can change the debate. Think how much mileage the wokesters have gotten out of "white privilege" and "systemic racism." The good guys occasionally score a verbal hit too, such as "virtue signaling" and (going way back) "political correctness."

    “Anti-Whiteism” is favored by a YouTube / BitChute channel “No White Guilt”, which recently discovered that anti-whiteism is a real word that existed in the Webster’s dictionary about a 100 years ago.

    Someone created a website for it:
    https://antiwhiteism.com/

    The guy (who runs “No White Guilt”) also wrote a book called “Go Free” to help people to linguistically fight the anti-white rhetoric and policies.

    Gandi, ah yes, Albert Shanker the infamous teachers' union president in NYC. Great quote that no one hears about. Could care less about the "kids" they don't pay dues. My son is very involved in lax in Ohio, although Ohio is not the hot bed of lacrosse that NYS is. Ohio has HS sports in full swing and had HS football right through to the State Championships. Unfortunately hundreds of HS football players died from Covid. Buried them in trenches dug on the school grounds. So sad. Stay safe Mr.Gandi.

    Replies: @Redneck farmer, @Achmed E. Newman, @ganderson

    Joe, while only a dope would argue that Ohio is New York State lacrosse-wise, but, it’s actually, as I’m sure your son can tell you, not bad- The greater Columbus area in particular has a high end DI team, the Buckeyes, and two top level D III squads, Denison, and Ohio Wesleyan, where one of my boys played. Denison and OWU play in a league where there isn’t as much competition, not exactly the Empire 8, the Liberty league or NESCAC! A bunch of good HS programs in Columbus, too.

    My youngest, who had a great career at Beloit College (yeah, I know, not exactly the top of the mark) lives in Springfield, OH, and is looking to get involved in youth lax, somehow- he’s coached HS and club in both MA and CO; and because he was one of those guys who had to work hard to make himself into a good player, he’s a good coach.

    We haven’t heard about NESCAC yet- if I were a betting man I’d say no season. Sad for me, as I live literally a block from the Amherst College Field, although they were going to have a weird season anyway, due to their coach having been dismissed and the team suspended from post-season play due to (bogus, IMHO) allegations of racism.

    If there is lax in Western New York (two years ago at the Frozen Four I was politely instructed on the difference between “Upstate” and “Western” New York) I’m going to take my retired butt out your way and take in some games.

    My dad was a school teacher who met my mother while on Shanker’s strike in 1968. He’d initially become a teacher to dodge the Vietnam draft. Only in a utopian fantasy are teachers “all about the kids.” But why should we expect teachers to violate the laws of human nature.

    Replies: @Ganderson

    Teaching was a good job for me- ( retired after 35 years this past spring) I got paid a decent salary to shoot my mouth off- and, all modesty aside I was pretty good at it. I liked the kids, I liked teaching and coaching. I liked the vacations, too, no doubt, but I’d still have done the job if our schedule was more …err… normal.

    I actually think that most teachers would prefer to be back in the classroom, but perhaps I’m fooling myself. Younger teachers are way more woke. Since I began my career in the mid eighties I’ve noticed many fewer of the old time liberals, whom I disagreed with, but who loved their country nonetheless. Most of those people are gone.
