From the New York Times news section:

Online Furor Over a Student’s Hijab Engulfs a Liberal Town

… By Tracey Tully
Oct. 22, 2021

MAPLEWOOD, N.J. — A 7-year-old girl came home from school earlier this month upset, impatient to tell her mother a story.

The second-grader said her teacher in Maplewood, N.J., had begun to pull off a hijab she wears as an observant Muslim, exposing her hair and prompting her to hold on to the head covering, the family’s lawyer said.

The girl’s mother recounted the story on Facebook. …

Soon, the story was cascading across the internet, drawing news crews and police cars to the front of the elementary school as the controversy roiled the liberal suburb.

Fundamental facts surrounding the Oct. 6 interaction remained in dispute, but Reddit and Instagram were awash in opinions. New Jersey’s governor weighed in on Twitter, and a statewide Islamic group demanded the teacher’s “immediate firing.”

It was the fifth week of school. The teacher, Tamar Herman, has said that she brushed back the girl’s hooded sweatshirt because it was covering her eyes, unaware the girl was not wearing her usual hijab underneath. The “moment” she realized it, Ms. Herman said, the student “kept the hood on.”

But the seconds-long interaction between a white teacher and a Black student was already firmly in the grip of an online maw, underscoring the extraordinary power of social media to quickly pass judgment

on white women, a.k.a., “Karens.”

, with little regard for accuracy or fallout.

“It’s made clear what was always kind of clear: There’s dividing lines around race and religion and identity that we have yet to really tackle in substantive ways,” said Khadijah Costley White, who teaches journalism and media studies at Rutgers University and runs SOMA Justice, a nonprofit created to promote racial justice in the school district.

Would somebody make clear what the professor said was made clear that was always kind of clear? To me, it seems clear that that this is the umpteenth example of the enormous surge of racist hate for white women. But most people don’t seem to have even noticed it.

By last week, administrators for the school district, South Orange-Maplewood, had fielded more than 2,000 emails — most from outside the state and nearly all calling for the teacher’s termination, they said. The teacher sought police protection after people showed up at her house and threatened her online, her lawyer said. …

Because the claim involved potential bias over a religious item worn to cover hair and maintain modesty, the school district stopped its investigation and it was taken over by the Maplewood Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

“At this point we’re just trying to determine what occurred,” said Katherine Carter, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office.

Ms. Herman, in a statement, said that she asked the student to “raise the hood of her sweatshirt” because it was covering her eyes.

“With her mask on too, her whole face was covered. I gently got her attention by brushing up the front of her hood,” said Ms. Herman, who has been placed on paid administrative leave.

“The moment I realized she was not wearing her usual hijab underneath, she kept the hood on,” she said. “And the learning went on.”

The student returned to school on Monday, her lawyer, Robert L. Tarver, said. Her mother, Cassandra Wyatt, who also wears a hijab, appeared Thursday at a news conference arranged by Mr. Tarver but did not comment. She has told ABC-7 Eyewitness News that her daughter no longer wanted to wear a head scarf.

“The teacher put her hands on the child,” said Mr. Tarver, adding that another person in the classroom had recounted the story similarly. “It was not a hoodie. It was a hijab. I have seen the actual clothing.”

The same day, another parent complained that Ms. Herman threw a student’s drink in the trash, telling the child it “wasn’t water,” a permitted beverage, according to an email sent by the family and shared with Mr. Tarver.

The 493-student elementary school has the highest percentage of students of color in the district, which educates children from two neighboring commuter towns that are roughly 25 miles from Midtown Manhattan. About 56 percent of students at Seth Boyden are Black, 23 percent are white, nearly 4 percent are Latino, 2 percent are Asian and the rest identify as multiracial.

If over half the students are black, then it is segregated and can’t possibly be good. If less than half the students are black, then the oppressed black students are isolated and lonely.

… Seth Boyden has also been the focus of efforts to further desegregate the towns’ schools. The Black Parents Workshop, a local advocacy group, enlisted Mr. Tarver to file a federal lawsuit that accused the district of discriminating against students of color and allowing a wide achievement gap to persist between Black and white students.

As opposed to no other school in America.

The lawsuit was settled last year and the district agreed to make changes.

Ms. Herman has taught in elementary schools for more than 30 years and often volunteered to teach at a Hebrew school, relatives said. A former student and parents of past students described her as warm and caring, signing off emails, “Together we can make the world a better place!”

Lesson plans she sent to parents in March when classes were being held virtually included an image of a girl wearing a pink hijab while reading.

… After Ms. Herman’s Jewish faith was injected into the online discourse, the conversations on Facebook pages popular with residents of Maplewood and South Orange grew even more fraught.

    I’m guessing black American Muslims kind of take Islam as a grab bag and pull things out without context, so they don’t apply them as real Muslims would. Think of it this way. Islam is a civilization. America is a civilization. How well do they do adopting our civilization? Why would they do any better with one they do not even live in? Yeah, they have Islamic-tier IQ, but still. It’s not a culture they live in. It’s one they’ve read about, but blacks are not strong readers.

    Tl;dr

    Black Americans are not Muslims. They are LARPing as Muslims.

    As for the teacher, life must be hard for Jews who are sincere about the multicult. They think the diversity should like them. More realistic Jews know they are just using minorities as cudgels against whites, and do not expect the diversities to love them.

    I was thinking the same thing. In actual Muslim countries, pre-pubesant girls don't wear hijabs. In western countries, Muslim girls do. Why the difference? They want to inculcate Islam into their kids and distinguish and their kids from the ummah.

    Black women who wear hajibs, and who make their small daughters wear them, have an ulterior motive. It's to avoid having to deal with black hair and the lengthy process necessary to tame it to respectability. If you're too lazy to comb and braid your kid's hair, you just slap a hajib on her.

    The crime was not the hijab. It was that an infidel, and worse a Jewish infidel, dared touch a Muslim. Do you think the girl and her Mom were unaware of Ms. Kumbaya’s religious background? I’m sure she advertised it believing we are all one big happy family. In Pakistan if this happened, and maybe in France, the mob would not be calling for the infidel’s figurative head but her very real one.

    Not really. In Iran the school uniform for girls K-5 age 5 to 10 is a long sleeved over sized pale pink robe. The head scarf is white and long, down to the shoulder blades. Looks like the scarf buttons under the chin. Good idea for little girls.

    Height and curves matter much more than first menarche . 4’10 or 11 is the standard height to don big baggy robe and scarf Muslim dress. 5 feet the absolute maximum. So tall girls might wear the scarf and robe as young as 9 or 10. Equally important is curves. Some girls are skinny flat chested with small hips. Curvy plump girls need to wear the robe as soon as the hips widen.

    Plus, Islam is getting more and more strict about the outward practices. Like creepy old Iman’s monitoring what other people’s daughters wear. Rape your 6 year old niece but make sure she wears modest Muslim dress.

    So Howard's falling apart. Is it possible that smugass rich white liberals (besides Mackenzie) are no longer donating to historically black colleges because the college tuition for their own kids is very expensive, and what's more, blacks are being given admission preference over their own white kids at Ivy League schools?

    Hijab girl in children’s books ‘is sexualising four-year-olds’

    Transport chiefs have been forced to drop a children’s road safety campaign depicting a Muslim nursery schoolgirl wearing a religious headscarf.

    The £2 million campaign was accused of sexualising a child because the hijab is traditionally worn by women only from puberty as a sign of female modesty in front of men. The images are included in children’s books distributed through nurseries and in stories on a website.
    The Children’s Traffic Club London, promoted by Transport for London (TfL), has recruited more than 66,000 children across the capital.

    TfL, which is chaired by Sadiq Khan, the capital’s Labour mayor, apologised last night and said that it would stop using the images.

    Mr Khan was alerted to the pictures by The Times. The books were introduced under his Conservative predecessor Boris Johnson, now the foreign secretary, in 2015.

    The stories are illustrated with characters from ethnically diverse backgrounds. The Muslim girl, aged three or four, is called Razmi and is always shown wearing a religious headscarf. Razmi is seen indoors in the home of a Chinese girl and that child’s grandmother and on outings.

    Gina Khan, an advocate of Islamic women’s equality, said: “You are sexualising a four-year-old girl. It is as simple as that. The reason a female is covered is so men don’t look at her. How can you integrate in society if you have a four-year-old girl wearing a hijab?”

    Shaista Gohir, chairwoman of the Muslim Women’s Network UK charity, said: “It’s like trying to get that child to try to grow up far too quickly. A child needs to be treated like a child.”

    She criticised the tendency of the media to stereotype by always portraying Muslim women as wearing headscarves when many choose not to. Such a depiction in an educational book sent a message to boys that girls are supposed to cover their hair, she suggested.

    Aisha Ali-Khan, a Muslim feminist campaigner, said the publishers of the book need diversity training. “The hijab is a Saudi-isation of British Muslim identity,” she said. “If you are a Muslim girl and look at these images and see this girl is Muslim and she is wearing a hijab and you aren’t, you will think there’s something wrong with you. It is far too young. You are a child. What are you being modest for?”

    Dame Louise Casey, the government’s integration tsar, intervened in a row in Birmingham this year when a Catholic school came under pressure to let a four-year-old girl wear a Muslim headscarf. She has expressed concern that “time and again I found it was women and children who were the targets of these [kind of] regressive practices” against the vulnerable.

    The London road safety books take pains to emphasise diversity. An Irish-origin child is taken, wearing a shamrock-emblazoned hat, to celebrate St Patrick’s Day in Trafalgar Square with “hundreds of happy people all dressed in green”. A middle-class white boy is taken by his father to watch the tennis at Wimbledon while a black man takes his niece to play football in the park.
    A TfL spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any offence caused by this content and we will not use these designs in future.”

    Attitudes to women wearing headscarves

    In Iran girls as young as seven are expected to begin wearing the hijab.
    In Saudi Arabia, all females are required to cover up once they reach puberty.
    In secular France, Muslim headscarves are banned in state schools. The burkini, a loose head-to-toe swimsuit for Muslim women, was forbidden by some mayors in towns on the Riviera after the massacre by a jihadist driving a lorry in Nice on Bastille Day last year.
    Turkey used to enforce headscarf bans but these have been lifted since President Erdogan, whose party is rooted in conservative Islam, came to power. His wife, Emine, wears a headscarf.
    The Metropolitan Police and Police Scotland have included optional hijabs in their uniforms.
    World Hijab Day, when non-Muslim women are encouraged to wear the headscarf, has been promoted by hardline preachers.

    Gina Khan: "You are sexualising a four year old girl. It's as simple as that. The reason a female is covered is so men don't look at her."

    Yeah, four years old is too young to sexualize little girls. Muhammad waited until his child bride was nine before he consummated their marriage.

    Although, if a four year old girl decides that she's a he, then some of the outraged liberals would be furious if you tried to make the case that she's too young to know who or what she is. Hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery would be urged to begin as soon as yesterday, and anyone who disagreed would be labeled as ignorant, bigoted, intolerant and hateful.

    Can the Lunatic Left keep up with all of these contradictions? No. They are stumbling and fumbling all over themselves in the attempt.

    Feminist Athletes are upset that Transgender Men are outperforming them in their chosen sports. Yet, they still want to be considered equal to Men.

    Negroids want to live in a good neighborhood (translation: a White neighborhood) and then complain about their neighbors being Racists.

    Negroes are just as smart as White people according to Joe Biden, but they need an extra 20 points added to their college admission exams to pass.

    Asians are afraid of being beaten up by White Men, but Black Men are overwhelmingly the ones who are attacking them.

    White Women are terrified by the looming specter of White Serial Killers, but are more likely to be raped and/or murdered by dating a Negro (who just happen to comprise the majority of Serial Killers).

    Many White Men that are labeled Serial Killers are actually Mestizos or Jewish.

    Foreigners come here to live the American Dream, but insist on replicating the conditions that made their homelands Nightmarish. Do people even have dreams in foreign countries? And, if so, do those dreams ever include making their own countries better?

    The implosion is surely imminent.

    As Steve has pointed out many times, one of the most underreported items in America is the slow demographic changes in schools. How many non-Hispanic whites older than 50 attend public schools that now have none or almost no non-Hispanic white students. As Steve has pointed out, many communities from Los Angeles to Houston to Washington, DC have seen public schools go from virtually all white in 1960 to all black in 1990 to virtually all Latino in 2020.

    True. The Nation of Islam is a fraud. Islam has universalist ambitions, while NoI promotes black nationalism. Islam is not exactly free from the taint of having enslaved Africans. Black slavery in the USA occurred for less than 250 years; while in the Muslim world it ran for 1,250 years. This is not obvious from present-day demographics because the Muslims made sure that their black slaves seldom had any surviving children.

    “Mohammad,” he replied.

    “You’re in Ireland now,” replied the teacher, “so from now on you will be known as Mike.”

    Mohammad returned home after school.

    “How was your day, Mohammad?” his mother asked.

    “My name is not Mohammad. I’m in Ireland and now my name is Mike.”

    “Are you ashamed of your name?” his mother asked. “Are you trying to dishonor your parents, your heritage, your religion? Shame on you!”

    And his mother beat the shit out of him.

    Then she called his father, who beat the shit out of him again.

    The next day Mohammad returned to school.

    The teacher saw all his fresh bruises. “What happened to you, Mike?” she asked.

    “Well, shortly after becoming an Irishman, I was attacked by two fucking Moslims.”

    Hijab girl in children’s books ‘is sexualising four-year-olds’

    Transport chiefs have been forced to drop a children’s road safety campaign depicting a Muslim nursery schoolgirl wearing a religious headscarf.

    The £2 million campaign was accused of sexualising a child because the hijab is traditionally worn by women only from puberty as a sign of female modesty in front of men. The images are included in children’s books distributed through nurseries and in stories on a website.
    The Children’s Traffic Club London, promoted by Transport for London (TfL), has recruited more than 66,000 children across the capital.

    TfL, which is chaired by Sadiq Khan, the capital’s Labour mayor, apologised last night and said that it would stop using the images.

    Mr Khan was alerted to the pictures by The Times. The books were introduced under his Conservative predecessor Boris Johnson, now the foreign secretary, in 2015.

    The stories are illustrated with characters from ethnically diverse backgrounds. The Muslim girl, aged three or four, is called Razmi and is always shown wearing a religious headscarf. Razmi is seen indoors in the home of a Chinese girl and that child’s grandmother and on outings.

    Gina Khan, an advocate of Islamic women’s equality, said: “You are sexualising a four-year-old girl. It is as simple as that. The reason a female is covered is so men don’t look at her. How can you integrate in society if you have a four-year-old girl wearing a hijab?”

    Shaista Gohir, chairwoman of the Muslim Women’s Network UK charity, said: “It’s like trying to get that child to try to grow up far too quickly. A child needs to be treated like a child.”

    She criticised the tendency of the media to stereotype by always portraying Muslim women as wearing headscarves when many choose not to. Such a depiction in an educational book sent a message to boys that girls are supposed to cover their hair, she suggested.

    Aisha Ali-Khan, a Muslim feminist campaigner, said the publishers of the book need diversity training. “The hijab is a Saudi-isation of British Muslim identity,” she said. “If you are a Muslim girl and look at these images and see this girl is Muslim and she is wearing a hijab and you aren’t, you will think there’s something wrong with you. It is far too young. You are a child. What are you being modest for?”

    Dame Louise Casey, the government’s integration tsar, intervened in a row in Birmingham this year when a Catholic school came under pressure to let a four-year-old girl wear a Muslim headscarf. She has expressed concern that “time and again I found it was women and children who were the targets of these [kind of] regressive practices” against the vulnerable.

    The London road safety books take pains to emphasise diversity. An Irish-origin child is taken, wearing a shamrock-emblazoned hat, to celebrate St Patrick’s Day in Trafalgar Square with “hundreds of happy people all dressed in green”. A middle-class white boy is taken by his father to watch the tennis at Wimbledon while a black man takes his niece to play football in the park.
    A TfL spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any offence caused by this content and we will not use these designs in future.”

    Attitudes to women wearing headscarves

    In Iran girls as young as seven are expected to begin wearing the hijab.
    In Saudi Arabia, all females are required to cover up once they reach puberty.
    In secular France, Muslim headscarves are banned in state schools. The burkini, a loose head-to-toe swimsuit for Muslim women, was forbidden by some mayors in towns on the Riviera after the massacre by a jihadist driving a lorry in Nice on Bastille Day last year.
    Turkey used to enforce headscarf bans but these have been lifted since President Erdogan, whose party is rooted in conservative Islam, came to power. His wife, Emine, wears a headscarf.
    The Metropolitan Police and Police Scotland have included optional hijabs in their uniforms.
    World Hijab Day, when non-Muslim women are encouraged to wear the headscarf, has been promoted by hardline preachers.

    True. The Nation of Islam is a fraud. Islam has universalist ambitions, while NoI promotes black nationalism. Islam is not exactly free from the taint of having enslaved Africans. Black slavery in the USA occurred for less than 250 years; while in the Muslim world it ran for 1,250 years. This is not obvious from present-day demographics because the Muslims made sure that their black slaves seldom had any surviving children.

    I’m guessing black American Muslims kind of take Islam as a grab bag and pull things out without context, so they don’t apply them as real Muslims would. Think of it this way. Islam is a civilization. America is a civilization. How well do they do adopting our civilization? Why would they do any better with one they do not even live in? Yeah, they have Islamic-tier IQ, but still. It’s not a culture they live in. It’s one they’ve read about, but blacks are not strong readers.

    Tl;dr

    Black Americans are not Muslims. They are LARPing as Muslims.

Ten years ago in the waiting room for a medical procedure our loved ones needed, I chatted with a woman (white woman) who had just retired from teaching first or second grade in Irvington NJ, a black area a few miles from Maplewood. She was so relieved to be out of that school. The children and their mothers were horrible. They address ed her as “white lady,” not by her name. The mothers were always looking to make trouble so they could get money from the school. White teachers lived in fear of accidentally touching a kid.

Also, has more of the type of rental housing they are now building particularly near train stations as the towns are easily commutable to NY. Towns are much more liberal and more “diverse” than towns further west. Recently mentioned as areas NY Times writers like to live in (though lags Montclair for this) Lots of BLM signs. If you were not black and were going to send your kids to public schools and weren’t ok with the idea of diverse schools you wouldn’t have moved here. So few Asians and less Italians, Irish than towns further west.

    Tensions go back to the 90’s or earlier with the first talk of eliminating tracking in schools and worries about the achievement gap. And the schools are probably trending less white over time. So this incident is not a surprise and probably more fun stuff to come.

Friedan, Pogrebin, and deCrow were professional class people. Steinem was a magazine writer who'd grown up poor and had a fluctuating income as an adult. The real rich lady feminist was Clare Boothe Luce, but she had all kinds of bones to pick with the purveyors of post-1963 feminism).

    This exact thing happened recently in my area:

    A swarm of 300 dirt bikes and ATV driven by unknown persons of an unknown race coming from an unknown nearby city rode thru the neighborhood. It was close enough to my house that I could hear the roar. My neighbors literally have BLM signs in their yard.

    https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2021/09/28/radnor-montgomery-county-dirt-bikes-atvs-police-villanova-safety/

    Now it's a dirty little secret that not that many cops are on duty at any one time in the suburbs. I know the number in my township and without revealing any operational information I can tell you that is less than 300. So when a horde of 300 golems showed up, they badly outnumbered the cops and basically what the handful of cops on duty did was stand and watch. They sure don't want to end up doing 22 1/2 years like Derek Chauvin. They don't get paid enough for that. Actually what they did in Radnor is put up a road block at a main intersection so they they would have to turn and drive back into my township (thanks a lot, guys).

    Now luckily, THIS TIME, all the golems did was ride down the street and make a lot of noise. But I suspect it was a probing attack and next time they are going to do more. The next time some George Floyd overdoses in police custody they will be back.

    I can also tell you that if they visit my house I will greet them warmly. And I don't mean with a BLM sign.

    Hijab girl in children’s books ‘is sexualising four-year-olds’

    Transport chiefs have been forced to drop a children’s road safety campaign depicting a Muslim nursery schoolgirl wearing a religious headscarf.

    The £2 million campaign was accused of sexualising a child because the hijab is traditionally worn by women only from puberty as a sign of female modesty in front of men. The images are included in children’s books distributed through nurseries and in stories on a website.
    The Children’s Traffic Club London, promoted by Transport for London (TfL), has recruited more than 66,000 children across the capital.

    TfL, which is chaired by Sadiq Khan, the capital’s Labour mayor, apologised last night and said that it would stop using the images.

    Mr Khan was alerted to the pictures by The Times. The books were introduced under his Conservative predecessor Boris Johnson, now the foreign secretary, in 2015.

    The stories are illustrated with characters from ethnically diverse backgrounds. The Muslim girl, aged three or four, is called Razmi and is always shown wearing a religious headscarf. Razmi is seen indoors in the home of a Chinese girl and that child’s grandmother and on outings.

    Gina Khan, an advocate of Islamic women’s equality, said: “You are sexualising a four-year-old girl. It is as simple as that. The reason a female is covered is so men don’t look at her. How can you integrate in society if you have a four-year-old girl wearing a hijab?”

    Shaista Gohir, chairwoman of the Muslim Women’s Network UK charity, said: “It’s like trying to get that child to try to grow up far too quickly. A child needs to be treated like a child.”

    She criticised the tendency of the media to stereotype by always portraying Muslim women as wearing headscarves when many choose not to. Such a depiction in an educational book sent a message to boys that girls are supposed to cover their hair, she suggested.

    Aisha Ali-Khan, a Muslim feminist campaigner, said the publishers of the book need diversity training. “The hijab is a Saudi-isation of British Muslim identity,” she said. “If you are a Muslim girl and look at these images and see this girl is Muslim and she is wearing a hijab and you aren’t, you will think there’s something wrong with you. It is far too young. You are a child. What are you being modest for?”

    Dame Louise Casey, the government’s integration tsar, intervened in a row in Birmingham this year when a Catholic school came under pressure to let a four-year-old girl wear a Muslim headscarf. She has expressed concern that “time and again I found it was women and children who were the targets of these [kind of] regressive practices” against the vulnerable.

    The London road safety books take pains to emphasise diversity. An Irish-origin child is taken, wearing a shamrock-emblazoned hat, to celebrate St Patrick’s Day in Trafalgar Square with “hundreds of happy people all dressed in green”. A middle-class white boy is taken by his father to watch the tennis at Wimbledon while a black man takes his niece to play football in the park.
    A TfL spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any offence caused by this content and we will not use these designs in future.”

    Attitudes to women wearing headscarves

    In Iran girls as young as seven are expected to begin wearing the hijab.
    In Saudi Arabia, all females are required to cover up once they reach puberty.
    In secular France, Muslim headscarves are banned in state schools. The burkini, a loose head-to-toe swimsuit for Muslim women, was forbidden by some mayors in towns on the Riviera after the massacre by a jihadist driving a lorry in Nice on Bastille Day last year.
    Turkey used to enforce headscarf bans but these have been lifted since President Erdogan, whose party is rooted in conservative Islam, came to power. His wife, Emine, wears a headscarf.
    The Metropolitan Police and Police Scotland have included optional hijabs in their uniforms.
    World Hijab Day, when non-Muslim women are encouraged to wear the headscarf, has been promoted by hardline preachers.

    True. The Nation of Islam is a fraud. Islam has universalist ambitions, while NoI promotes black nationalism. Islam is not exactly free from the taint of having enslaved Africans. Black slavery in the USA occurred for less than 250 years; while in the Muslim world it ran for 1,250 years. This is not obvious from present-day demographics because the Muslims made sure that their black slaves seldom had any surviving children.

    To wit:


    Jewish women played a significant role in all aspects of the American feminist movement, advocating for women’s suffrage, birth control and reproductive rights, peace, improved conditions for working women, the Equal Rights Amendment, and gender equality. In the early and mid-1960s, Jewish women—including Betty Friedan, Bella Abzug, Gloria Steinem, and Letty Cottin Pogrebin—helped to launch second-wave feminism. Many younger Jewish women pioneered radical feminism later in the decade. In some women's liberation collectives, as many as two-thirds to three-quarters of members were Jewish.

    Most American Jews have reached the point where they no longer have to run a pawn shop in the ghetto and interact with blacks on a daily basis. It’s much nicer when you can live in the suburbs and confine your interaction with blacks to the “Black Lives Matter” sign in your front yard. But a few Jews still have to deal with actual blacks and that’s rarely pleasant.
     
    Living in the suburbs among conscientious, well-off whites while supporting your golems from a distance is a sort of win/win for American Jews.

    But BLM seems to be the kind of bungled incantation that sics the golems on the suburbs. And the golems themselves may not make the necessary distinctions when they get there.

    But BLM seems to be the kind of bungled incantation that sics the golems on the suburbs. And the golems themselves may not make the necessary distinctions when they get there.

    This exact thing happened recently in my area:

    A swarm of 300 dirt bikes and ATV driven by unknown persons of an unknown race coming from an unknown nearby city rode thru the neighborhood. It was close enough to my house that I could hear the roar. My neighbors literally have BLM signs in their yard.

    https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2021/09/28/radnor-montgomery-county-dirt-bikes-atvs-police-villanova-safety/

    Now it’s a dirty little secret that not that many cops are on duty at any one time in the suburbs. I know the number in my township and without revealing any operational information I can tell you that is less than 300. So when a horde of 300 golems showed up, they badly outnumbered the cops and basically what the handful of cops on duty did was stand and watch. They sure don’t want to end up doing 22 1/2 years like Derek Chauvin. They don’t get paid enough for that. Actually what they did in Radnor is put up a road block at a main intersection so they they would have to turn and drive back into my township (thanks a lot, guys).

    Now luckily, THIS TIME, all the golems did was ride down the street and make a lot of noise. But I suspect it was a probing attack and next time they are going to do more. The next time some George Floyd overdoses in police custody they will be back.

    I can also tell you that if they visit my house I will greet them warmly. And I don’t mean with a BLM sign.

Upon retirement, you go live like a king on Caribbean island X. At Steve we all know about blacks and their affirmative action Gov't jobs. Many/most of these alleged jobs are do-nothing, pencil pushing with 100% job security. They luv this sheeeet! They are smarter than white people on this, and they hire their own.

    Substitutes account for 14% of all primary and secondary teachers, and not all of them are young people starting out. The average teacher is going to spend 3-4 years subbing throughout the course of his career. The mean compensation for subbing as we speak is $200 per day. The number of elementary schoolteachers is such that the subprofession could be staffed with about 77,000 new entrants per year and the number of middle and high school teachers is such that the subprofession could be staffed with about 86,000 new entrants per year. Higher ed is currently issuing 82,600 BEd degrees and 146,700 MEd degrees per year.

    Emma Goldman was notable for anarchism, was departed a century ago and died 80 years ago. She had nothing to do with post-war feminism. Rosa Luxemburg was a German Communist who died a century ago. Katha Pollitt is a red-haze journalist who writes for a publication whose circulation has averaged about 80,000 during her tenure there. Gertrude Stein died 75 years ago and is known not for feminism but for expatriate salon life, oddball literature, and lesbianism. Susan Sontag was another francophile litterateur who fancied red-haze politics, not a distinctly feminist writer. The others are better examples of Jewish feminist, but your complaint misses my point. These women were problematic for what they wrote and promoted, not for being Jewish.

    I think they were all trying to get back at their Jewish fathers by being rebellious. Their fathers must have all made it clear to them that having a smart daughter was good but it would have been even better if they had had a smart son instead.

    Black women for example aren’t trying to get even with their fathers because you would have to know who the guy is first.

  102. If we can’t get to “separate nations” at least “separate schools”?

    The ability of something like a “school” to work depends entirely upon having common norms. Everything from what you are going to teach to how the students are expected to behave. Obvious stuff. And we simply do not have it.

    (Public schools are plausibly ok if you have a one-people nation, or have a coherent national majority with the confidence and will to demand compliance with its norms. We don’t have that.)

    Again, where are the Republicans?

    The schooling disaster both from demographics and leftist ideology has been rolling along–getting worse every year–since the 60s minoritarian coup. It is not only harassing the Republican constituents–making their lives worse–it also leads to defections of some of those constituents’ children, and the edu-blob serves as a giant jobs program and organizing machinery for the parasite party.

    But BLM seems to be the kind of bungled incantation that sics the golems on the suburbs. And the golems themselves may not make the necessary distinctions when they get there.
     
    This exact thing happened recently in my area:

    A swarm of 300 dirt bikes and ATV driven by unknown persons of an unknown race coming from an unknown nearby city rode thru the neighborhood. It was close enough to my house that I could hear the roar. My neighbors literally have BLM signs in their yard.

    https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2021/09/28/radnor-montgomery-county-dirt-bikes-atvs-police-villanova-safety/

    Now it's a dirty little secret that not that many cops are on duty at any one time in the suburbs. I know the number in my township and without revealing any operational information I can tell you that is less than 300. So when a horde of 300 golems showed up, they badly outnumbered the cops and basically what the handful of cops on duty did was stand and watch. They sure don't want to end up doing 22 1/2 years like Derek Chauvin. They don't get paid enough for that. Actually what they did in Radnor is put up a road block at a main intersection so they they would have to turn and drive back into my township (thanks a lot, guys).

    Now luckily, THIS TIME, all the golems did was ride down the street and make a lot of noise. But I suspect it was a probing attack and next time they are going to do more. The next time some George Floyd overdoses in police custody they will be back.

    I can also tell you that if they visit my house I will greet them warmly. And I don't mean with a BLM sign.

    To wit:

    Jewish women played a significant role in all aspects of the American feminist movement, advocating for women’s suffrage, birth control and reproductive rights, peace, improved conditions for working women, the Equal Rights Amendment, and gender equality. In the early and mid-1960s, Jewish women—including Betty Friedan, Bella Abzug, Gloria Steinem, and Letty Cottin Pogrebin—helped to launch second-wave feminism. Many younger Jewish women pioneered radical feminism later in the decade. In some women’s liberation collectives, as many as two-thirds to three-quarters of members were Jewish.

    The crime was not the hijab. It was that an infidel, and worse a Jewish infidel, dared touch a Muslim. Do you think the girl and her Mom were unaware of Ms. Kumbaya’s religious background?

    Hijab girl in children’s books ‘is sexualising four-year-olds’

    Transport chiefs have been forced to drop a children’s road safety campaign depicting a Muslim nursery schoolgirl wearing a religious headscarf.

    The £2 million campaign was accused of sexualising a child because the hijab is traditionally worn by women only from puberty as a sign of female modesty in front of men. The images are included in children’s books distributed through nurseries and in stories on a website.
    The Children’s Traffic Club London, promoted by Transport for London (TfL), has recruited more than 66,000 children across the capital.

    TfL, which is chaired by Sadiq Khan, the capital’s Labour mayor, apologised last night and said that it would stop using the images.

    Mr Khan was alerted to the pictures by The Times. The books were introduced under his Conservative predecessor Boris Johnson, now the foreign secretary, in 2015.

    The stories are illustrated with characters from ethnically diverse backgrounds. The Muslim girl, aged three or four, is called Razmi and is always shown wearing a religious headscarf. Razmi is seen indoors in the home of a Chinese girl and that child’s grandmother and on outings.

    Gina Khan, an advocate of Islamic women’s equality, said: “You are sexualising a four-year-old girl. It is as simple as that. The reason a female is covered is so men don’t look at her. How can you integrate in society if you have a four-year-old girl wearing a hijab?”

    Shaista Gohir, chairwoman of the Muslim Women’s Network UK charity, said: “It’s like trying to get that child to try to grow up far too quickly. A child needs to be treated like a child.”

    She criticised the tendency of the media to stereotype by always portraying Muslim women as wearing headscarves when many choose not to. Such a depiction in an educational book sent a message to boys that girls are supposed to cover their hair, she suggested.

    Aisha Ali-Khan, a Muslim feminist campaigner, said the publishers of the book need diversity training. “The hijab is a Saudi-isation of British Muslim identity,” she said. “If you are a Muslim girl and look at these images and see this girl is Muslim and she is wearing a hijab and you aren’t, you will think there’s something wrong with you. It is far too young. You are a child. What are you being modest for?”

    Dame Louise Casey, the government’s integration tsar, intervened in a row in Birmingham this year when a Catholic school came under pressure to let a four-year-old girl wear a Muslim headscarf. She has expressed concern that “time and again I found it was women and children who were the targets of these [kind of] regressive practices” against the vulnerable.

    The London road safety books take pains to emphasise diversity. An Irish-origin child is taken, wearing a shamrock-emblazoned hat, to celebrate St Patrick’s Day in Trafalgar Square with “hundreds of happy people all dressed in green”. A middle-class white boy is taken by his father to watch the tennis at Wimbledon while a black man takes his niece to play football in the park.
    A TfL spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any offence caused by this content and we will not use these designs in future.”

    Attitudes to women wearing headscarves

    In Iran girls as young as seven are expected to begin wearing the hijab.
    In Saudi Arabia, all females are required to cover up once they reach puberty.
    In secular France, Muslim headscarves are banned in state schools. The burkini, a loose head-to-toe swimsuit for Muslim women, was forbidden by some mayors in towns on the Riviera after the massacre by a jihadist driving a lorry in Nice on Bastille Day last year.
    Turkey used to enforce headscarf bans but these have been lifted since President Erdogan, whose party is rooted in conservative Islam, came to power. His wife, Emine, wears a headscarf.
    The Metropolitan Police and Police Scotland have included optional hijabs in their uniforms.
    World Hijab Day, when non-Muslim women are encouraged to wear the headscarf, has been promoted by hardline preachers.

    Gina Khan: “You are sexualising a four year old girl. It’s as simple as that. The reason a female is covered is so men don’t look at her.”

    Yeah, four years old is too young to sexualize little girls. Muhammad waited until his child bride was nine before he consummated their marriage.

    Although, if a four year old girl decides that she’s a he, then some of the outraged liberals would be furious if you tried to make the case that she’s too young to know who or what she is. Hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery would be urged to begin as soon as yesterday, and anyone who disagreed would be labeled as ignorant, bigoted, intolerant and hateful.

    Can the Lunatic Left keep up with all of these contradictions? No. They are stumbling and fumbling all over themselves in the attempt.

    Feminist Athletes are upset that Transgender Men are outperforming them in their chosen sports. Yet, they still want to be considered equal to Men.

    Negroids want to live in a good neighborhood (translation: a White neighborhood) and then complain about their neighbors being Racists.

    Negroes are just as smart as White people according to Joe Biden, but they need an extra 20 points added to their college admission exams to pass.

    Asians are afraid of being beaten up by White Men, but Black Men are overwhelmingly the ones who are attacking them.

    White Women are terrified by the looming specter of White Serial Killers, but are more likely to be raped and/or murdered by dating a Negro (who just happen to comprise the majority of Serial Killers).

    Many White Men that are labeled Serial Killers are actually Mestizos or Jewish.

    Foreigners come here to live the American Dream, but insist on replicating the conditions that made their homelands Nightmarish. Do people even have dreams in foreign countries? And, if so, do those dreams ever include making their own countries better?

    Most American Jews have reached the point where they no longer have to run a pawn shop in the ghetto and interact with blacks on a daily basis. It's much nicer when you can live in the suburbs and confine your interaction with blacks to the "Black Lives Matter" sign in your front yard. But a few Jews still have to deal with actual blacks and that's rarely pleasant.

    Somali girls as young as two wore the headdress in our old St Paul neighborhood. Why?

    Do you know any little girls of that age or a bit older? Because they demanded to. Somalis are by far the most stylish dressers among Moslem women. They know how to make the stupid things look good.

    Substitutes account for 14% of all primary and secondary teachers, and not all of them are young people starting out. The average teacher is going to spend 3-4 years subbing throughout the course of his career. The mean compensation for subbing as we speak is \$200 per day. The number of elementary schoolteachers is such that the subprofession could be staffed with about 77,000 new entrants per year and the number of middle and high school teachers is such that the subprofession could be staffed with about 86,000 new entrants per year. Higher ed is currently issuing 82,600 BEd degrees and 146,700 MEd degrees per year. The course lists are commonly chock-a-block with junk, so it’s not going to diminish social welfare to shutter and purge teacher’s colleges.

    Ms. Herman has taught in elementary schools for more than 30 years and often volunteered to teach at a Hebrew school, relatives said. A former student and parents of past students described her as warm and caring, signing off emails, “Together we can make the world a better place!”

    Lesson plans she sent to parents in March when classes were being held virtually included an image of a girl wearing a pink hijab while reading.

    … After Ms. Herman’s Jewish faith was injected into the online discourse, the conversations on Facebook pages popular with residents of Maplewood and South Orange grew even more fraught.

    Ms. Herman sounds like one of those progressives with a savior complex who devote their lives to serving blacks to make a statement about how magnanimous/non-racist they are.

I thought that was so wrong but no parent dared raise objection lest they should draw ire from the leftist mob of the Seattle area. Thankfully after second grade the family moved to Dubai, because America was too free i.e. decadent for them.

    One year the school decided to start a “Culture Night”. The music teacher sent out an email to the school explaining that culture night doesn’t mean Beethoven or ballet, it means for kids to display posters, dance to Bollywood music to explain their “diverse culture” to the dumb white families. Not too long ago, that would’ve been seen as racist, associating people with their “native” culture. Now it’s racist not to associate them with their “diverse” culture. Everything has gone upside down.

    Yeah, four years old is too young to sexualize little girls. Muhammad waited until his child bride was nine before he consummated their marriage.

    The problem lies with the teacher who was Jewish. The Indian kid was just a convenient excuse. I can only hope his parents call that out for racism.

    Jews have been trying to erase Christmas from our schools for decades. Since Kindergarten, my kids were brought to the library each year around Christmas time for "Holiday readings". The librarian, who was Jewish, would read aloud books about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa to the kids, but *never* once about Christmas or any mention of Christ. The school library keeps many books on Judaism and Islam, but not a single one on Christianity. The school's annual "Holiday songfest" has the choir singing all kinds of "holiday" songs that no one's ever heard of that never includes a single word about Christmas, Christ or God. They are not even allowed to sing about the Christmas tree because it contains the word Christmas.

    But that was public school, it does make you wonder why a Jew would teach at a Catholic school. Another Catholic school in the Seattle area got in trouble about 8 or 9 years ago for firing a swim coach who lied about his sexual orientation on his job application. The principal, a respected and beloved nun who had run the school for decades, stated clearly that she fired him not for being gay but for lying on his job application. But no matter. The media/internet/student protest mob descended on her mercilessly, she ended up quitting and the lying gay coach was reinstated.

    Why do gays and Jews teach at Catholic schools when they know there are specific rules regarding these schools that make them different from public schools? It's clear they are there just to raise trouble and upend the status quo. Meanwhile no such hell will ever be raised in a Hebrew school. If a white Protestant kid is present in a Hebrew school you can be sure they wouldn't stop celebrating Hanukkah for him.

    Most Jews of my acquaintance (and yes, some of my best friends are…) love blacks in the abstract, and dislike them in the particular.

    That pretty much is the position of all my Jewish friends.

    I see a lot of, and predict a lot of, Sailerisms in all the world around me. One is that there will come a day--soon--when someone (likely a black woman), goes on a rant, with typical "aint this so dumb" laughing,

    "why we be called "minorities" we the majority...white folk the minority"

    and overnight two things:

    1. Being in and of the majority will be the new, cool, thing

    2. Being part of the minority, which will only be white people, will have no meaning, except that we will be told "of course the majority should rule" (in all matters).

    That is exactly what all this constant prattle about “our democracy” is laying the groundwork for. It will be “OUR democracy” — not yours, crackaz.

    Many White Men that are labeled Serial Killers are actually Mestizos or Jewish.

    Jews are white and the number of Jewish serial killers identified in American history can be counted on your fingers.

    According to Muslim custom, face/body covering for women is not used until the menarche.

    Not really. In Iran the school uniform for girls K-5 age 5 to 10 is a long sleeved over sized pale pink robe. The head scarf is white and long, down to the shoulder blades. Looks like the scarf buttons under the chin. Good idea for little girls.

    Height and curves matter much more than first menarche . 4’10 or 11 is the standard height to don big baggy robe and scarf Muslim dress. 5 feet the absolute maximum. So tall girls might wear the scarf and robe as young as 9 or 10. Equally important is curves. Some girls are skinny flat chested with small hips. Curvy plump girls need to wear the robe as soon as the hips widen.

    Plus, Islam is getting more and more strict about the outward practices. Like creepy old Iman’s monitoring what other people’s daughters wear. Rape your 6 year old niece but make sure she wears modest Muslim dress.

    Nieces attended a private Roman Catholic school in Seattle. One boy in the class was an E. Indian. He was a Roman Catholic. A Keralian Catholic in communion with Rome and the Pope.

    The Roman Catholics of Kerala India claim they were converted to Catholicism by one of the apostles, St Thomas back around 50 AD. There’s no proof of that as far as I know. But there are regular communications from Indian Roman Catholic bishops in the Vatican archives as early as 500s AD. Definitely not converted by Portuguese missionaries after 1470 AD.

    When oldest niece was in 4th grade the Jewish teacher totally abolished the class Christmas celebrations on the grounds that Christmas was offensive to the E. Indian boy. Ignorant moron assumed and committed the crime of stereotyping an E. Indian as Hindu.

    I doubt ignorant moron teacher was aware that not all Indians are Hindus.

    Think about it. A kid from one of the oldest RC communities in the world. And ignorant moron teacher abolished Christmas celebrations because she assumed all E Indians are Hindus.

    Even if the boy were Hindu Muslim Parsee Tribal etc the parents would not have sent him to a RC school if they were offended by Christmas.

    The problem lies with the teacher who was Jewish. The Indian kid was just a convenient excuse. I can only hope his parents call that out for racism.

    Jews have been trying to erase Christmas from our schools for decades. Since Kindergarten, my kids were brought to the library each year around Christmas time for “Holiday readings”. The librarian, who was Jewish, would read aloud books about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa to the kids, but *never* once about Christmas or any mention of Christ. The school library keeps many books on Judaism and Islam, but not a single one on Christianity. The school’s annual “Holiday songfest” has the choir singing all kinds of “holiday” songs that no one’s ever heard of that never includes a single word about Christmas, Christ or God. They are not even allowed to sing about the Christmas tree because it contains the word Christmas.

    But that was public school, it does make you wonder why a Jew would teach at a Catholic school. Another Catholic school in the Seattle area got in trouble about 8 or 9 years ago for firing a swim coach who lied about his sexual orientation on his job application. The principal, a respected and beloved nun who had run the school for decades, stated clearly that she fired him not for being gay but for lying on his job application. But no matter. The media/internet/student protest mob descended on her mercilessly, she ended up quitting and the lying gay coach was reinstated.

    Why do gays and Jews teach at Catholic schools when they know there are specific rules regarding these schools that make them different from public schools? It’s clear they are there just to raise trouble and upend the status quo. Meanwhile no such hell will ever be raised in a Hebrew school. If a white Protestant kid is present in a Hebrew school you can be sure they wouldn’t stop celebrating Hanukkah for him.

  154. Every month the Council on American Islamic Relations threatens people just like Tamar Herman –

    Here is the tally from last year –

  155. underscoring the extraordinary power of social media to quickly pass judgment

    on white women, a.k.a., “Karens.”

    Naturally, as the teacher was herself a “Becky”. Which is why a sudden ceasefire was called on all Beckys last year (which will probably be news to black parents, although I suspect most woke strategy maneuvers will be news to black parents. Still, it ends with a sista stickin’ it to Whitey via the proxy of a Jewish teacher, and Stickin’ It to Whitey is the only kind of woke strategy that matters to them, so……hooray?)

    Regardless of how this single case ends, though – all palefaces lose. Because even if you wash your hands of garbage gubmint schools and opt for private or parochial school – or simple homeschooling – for your kid, you will NEVER be exempt from the ever-increasing annual shakedown on April 15, a good chunk of which goes to (cough) “schools”. As do any number of sin-tax boondoggles, from Lucky Strikes to lotto tickets – to say nothing of Atlantic City. Rest assured: you can vote any way you wish, for any candidate you choose, except for freedom from the dagger at your throat… and don’t you forget it.
