Libraries Are Tools of Racist Oppression… or Something…

     It has long been clear that the Progressive Left believe everything is racist (or sexist or homophobic or &c.). Yes, even libraries are tools of racist oppression!

“If you look at any United States library’s collection, especially those in higher education institutions, most of the collections (books, journals, archival papers, other media, etc.) are written by white dudes writing about white ideas, white things, or ideas, people, and things they stole from POC and then claimed as white property with all of the “rights to use and enjoyment of” that Harris describes in her article. When most of our collections filled with this so-called ‘knowledge,’ it continues to validate only white voices and perspectives and erases the voices of people of color. Collections are representations of what librarians (or faculty) deem to be authoritative knowledge and as we know, this field and educational institutions, historically, and currently, have been sites of whiteness.

“Library collections continue to promote and proliferate whiteness with their very existence and the fact that they are physically taking up space in our libraries. They are paid for using money that was usually ill-gotten and at the cost of black and brown lives via the prison industrial complex, the spoils of war, etc. Libraries filled with mostly white collections indicates that we don’t care about what POC think, we don’t care to hear from POC themselves, we don’t consider POC to be scholars, we don’t think POC are as valuable, knowledgeable, or as important as white people. To return to the Harris quote from above, library collections and spaces have historically kept out Black, Indigenous, People of Color as they were meant to do and continue to do. One only has to look at the most recent incident at the library of my alma mater, Barnard College, where several security guards tried to kick out a Black Columbia student for being Black.”

     This insanity did not spring forth ex nihilo. Indeed, this crazy person’s little rant actually outlines how he/she/it “connect[ed] all these dots in a coherent way”, which provides an incite into how these monsters are birthed within the mind of the oh-so-woke Left.

Pictured: White Supremacy in Action

     Of note, this would have just stayed sub rosa from most people if it were not for a (now deleted) tweet promoting it from Library Journal.

     First, one must recognize that all this is precedented on the worldview that everything in society is based on heirarchical systems of power and privilege.

     In the aforementioned rant against libraries, the author demonstrates how the conclusion was reveled through “mind-mapping”, which is like smoking chronic weed laced with bath salts through a cough-syrup bong without the benefits of getting stoned.

     During this intermittent stream of conscious incoherence of the author, the following six aspects came together with all the well thought-out rationality of the Munich Agreement:

  • Inspiration from the Shinto-inspired “organizing” specialist Marie Kondo who is “anti-clutter”.
  • Swedish death cleaning in which those who aren’t lucky enough to have private insurance just give up and prepare for their (White) death.
  • An “instruction session” for “Reading and Writing Autobiography” involving “mind-mapping”.
  • A “librarian of color” who declared that books written by straight white men are a physical manifestation of white men ideas, like some grimoire involving the Great Old Ones or something.
  • The belief that the concept of property was invented by White oppressors in order to enslave and oppress the “noble savages” outside of Europe.
  • A group chat with other woke librarians.

     Aside from the fact that the anti-clutter/minimalism movement is “classist” and doable only by the already well-off, the constructed argument/excuse is that because most books are written by White men, that those books then perpetuate the Whiteness of those White men, meaning that any library collection (beyond presumable a tiny and vetted “woke” library) is White Supremacism incarnate.

     As is become so common-place as to be expected, those who we expect to be curators and keepers of wisdom and knowledge, are instead using their institutionally privileged positions with all the institutional power that comes therewith to instead destroy that knowledge and wisdom because they see said knowledge and wisdom as being but vectors of oppressive power and privilege, and thus the root evil which must be destroyed with any other outcome being a victory for the “systems” of oppression.

     While some fools have stated this is a reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater (nor bothering to realize that the root problem will just find another host to feed off of), it is a reminder that if we truly want to win back the culture, it is necessary to counter-infiltrate these institutions and professions. That is how you fight back as they fought.

First They Came For The Drinking Straws

     California, where banning plastic straws is all the rage, and where there have been serious attempts to ban everything from printed receipts to the internal combustion engine, is not pushing forward with an initiative to make it illegal for hotels to give you those little bottles of shampoo, condition, and/or lotion. And if they do, they’ll get a fine of up to $2000.

     This new Chapter 6.1 of the Public Resources Code (really?), adds section 42372 (that’s a lot of sections!) to read, in part: “A lodging establishment shall not provide a small plastic bottle containing a personal care product to a person staying in a sleeping room accommodation, in any space within the sleeping room accommodation, or in an area that is shared by the public or guests.

     Oh, they encourage “bulk dispensers”, but at this point is there any doubt that eventually they will ration how much they dispense? Let’s just hope they don’t do the same with the toilet paper…

Firing Line Friday: Vietnam and the Intellectuals

     In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.

     Far too often, the response to Progressive intellectuals is an anti-intellectualism that, rather than fight those intellectuals, conceded academia and other such institutions. Perhaps opposing Progressive intellectuals does not mean one has to surrender a more conservative intellectual vein of thought, as seen by Buckley debating the Noam Chomsky.

Quick Takes – The College Left: Segregation by Race; Inhuman Conservatives; Literal Cannibalism

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Eat the rich… literally.

     First, a little soothing, dulcet mood music:

     Carrying on…

Dissent can not be allowed, it is well known to Leftists, but even intermingling with the “other” is to be eschewed…

“American University has created a space for students of different identities to come together and foster a sense of community, but some students recently complained it’s too inclusive.

“The room, known as the Hub for Organizing Multiculturalism and Equity, or HOME, opened in November 2017 in the wake of alleged hate crimes against black students.

“More recently, a feature in The Eagle campus newspaper on the 1-year-old room detailed how some students are frustrated that officials allow students of any ethnicity to use it, rather than only students of color, and also that ‘several students said they viewed HOME as a response to their request for a black house.”

     Of course something ought to be done…

Monkeys With Human-like Brain Development: Are Clever Catgirls Far Behind?

     There has been talk of engineering primates to be more human like, with an interest in creating such hybrids going back to the days of Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov. And now, the first actual steps towards this have been scientifically achieved.

“A group of monkeys were found to have “human-like” brain development, including faster reactions and better memories, after a joint Sino-American team of researchers spliced a human gene into their genetic makeup.

“Researchers from the Kunming Institute of Zoology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and the University of North Carolina in the United States modified the genes of 11 monkeys (eight first-generation and three second-generation) with the addition of copies of the human gene MCPH1.

“Microcephalin (MCPH1) is a key factor in our brain development and, in particular, eventual brain size. Mutations in the gene can lead to the developmental disorder microcephaly, which is characterized by a tiny brain.”

     Obviously, in order to make kemonomimi girls, including catgirls of course, fit for domestic ownership, it is necessary that they have an intelligence level above that of a Kzinrretti.

Transing of Cancer

     There is little doubt that when healthcare becomes “free” and thus rationed, non-medically necessary procedures, like abortions and so-called “gender conforming” operations/hormone treatments would get preference over kids dying of cancer.

     Now, however, they can kill two birds with one stone:

“[A] group of parents united in concern about transgender identity being pushed on children, released a heartbreaking video of a father whose son may lose his battle with cancer thanks in part to a reckless diagnosis of gender dysphoria (the persistent condition of identifying with the gender opposite one’s biological sex) and rushed hormone ‘treatments.'”

     That’s right, you may die, but at least you can get your body mutilated and jacked up on hormones in order to pretend to be the other sex. Ironic, then, that we are told that small children must be allowed to “transition” lest their lives be put at risk!

“‘Aside from whether or not my son is transgender, these hormones are certainly hastening his demise,’ the father adds.

“In researching the transgender issue, he ‘learned that there’s no real research to support putting a young man like my son on hormones, that there’s no consideration for his health risk, and that there’s no protocol to diagnose this and no attention paid to the underlying issues like trauma. The counselors cite that there’s no way to evaluate whether a person is transgender. It’s just if they think they are, you have to go along with that, which doesn’t make sense to me.’

“The reckless pursuit of transgender identity can cost lives. Many former transgender people have regretted their cross-sex identity, returning to their biological sex and lamenting the permanent scarring they received from hormones and surgery. Yet the direct and immediate threat to a boy’s life due to transgender ‘treatments’ is horrifyingly new.”

The De-liberation of Venezuela

     Chavez and then Maduro claimed, in large part, to be liberating the Venezuelan people. They’ve certainly succeeded in “liberating” them from peace and prosperity. Why they even used the vaunted Cuban healthcare system to “liberate” them from their own health and well being. And such ecological wonder of wonders, they even “liberated” Venezuelans from the modern scourge of… electricity.

     This leave Maduro the time and resources to go after the real enemy: Comedians.   Also, the freedom to crush anyone who dares challenge him for power and authority.

     Why, Maduro’s regime is even popular with such internationally fashionable leaders as… Vladimir Putin, who is helping to spread the love/troops necessary win the hearts and minds bullet-riddled-guts of not only the Venezuelan people, but of Venezuela’s neighbors as well.

Firing Line Friday: The Warren Report: Fact or Fiction?

     In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.

     Considering the ongoing obsession with the “Mueller Investigation” report and all the insanity and conspiracy theories sprung therefrom, perhaps might be of interest to see discussion regarding a far more (in)famous repot: The Warren Report.
