Woke Genocide: Social Justice And Aztec Gods In California

     The California Board of Education has voted to implement the so-called “Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC)”, which is based on the Marxism-derived “Pedagogy of the Oppressed.” How bad is it? It will have students appeal to Aztec gods that countless people in the past were sacrificed to and even achieve the final solution of a “countergenocide” against White people.

     The veritable Christopher Rufo yet again presents source documents:

Oregon Poised To Ban Diesel

     A measure has been introduced to the Oregon legislature to outlaw diesel fuel in Oregon.   This is one of those measures that you only have to read the plain text of the legislative summary to understand quite explicitly that this is exactly what they are trying to do.

“Prohibits retail dealer, nonretail dealer or wholesale dealer from selling petroleum diesel for use in motor vehicle on or after specified dates. Requires public improvement contract to require that motor vehicles be powered by fuel other than petroleum diesel. Prohibits public body from using petroleum diesel in motor vehicle under control of public body.”

     Even if Democrats in Congress can’t push through a “Green New Deal” on the Federal level, doesn’t stop even more Left-wing states from doing it on the state level.

Quick Takes – Marriage à Trois: Polyamory As A Constitutional Right; Polyamory Acceptance; Polyamory Normalization

     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: Take that, duo-normative diarchy!

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Is there any reasoning used against polyamerous marriage that wasn’t used against same-sex marriage that was dismissed as “irrational animus”?

     Not really.

“The majority in Obergefell did not find the fact that the West, for at least two millennia, held a stable conception of marriage — a union between one man and one woman, open to procreation and the rearing of children — compelling grounds to reject the claims of the plaintiffs. Obergefell clearly conceives of marriage as a ‘right’ — civil, legal, and moral — to be extended to consenting claimants, with only passing regard for the existing strictures of the institution. Anthony Kennedy’s opinion uses a nebulous, inchoate definition of marriage predicated on poetic notions of ‘dignity’ and ‘love’ rather than the traditional, unbroken consensus of Western civilization. Why would the Court find the traditional restriction of marriage to a union between two persons a compelling reason to withhold the right to marry from three (or more) claimants?

“If ‘love,’ ‘dignity,’ and the pursuant tax advantages are the constitutive parts of marriage, on what grounds would Rauch or the courts withhold those ‘rights’ from polygamous unions?”

Segregation As Social Justice in Florida

     A “school of the arts” in Jacksonville, Florida, apologized for a planned “cultural issues” discussion that was going to be segregated by race—oh, they didn’t apologize for planning to hold it… only for letting parents, who ended up complaining, know about it beforehand.

“Douglas Anderson School of the Arts were planning on holding a cultural discussion with its students on Thursday. The meeting would feature Dr. Tammy Hodo, a local TEDx speaker and lead consultant at All Things Diverse, and Grammy winner/DA Alum Ulysses Owens. Parents received an email Tuesday night informing them of the meeting.

“What parents were not expecting were the students being separated and attending two separate meetings, based on the students race.

“‘Good Afternoon DA Families:

“‘Dr. Hodo, President of All Things Diverse, LLC, and Ulysses Owens, DA Artist in Residence and DA Alum, will be hosting two student meetings on Thursday morning, March 4. These meetings are to discuss cultural issues that have arisen at DA and to ensure that DA truly is a place for all.

“‘The two meetings are scheduled as follows:

“‘9 am will be for all 11th and 12th-grade students of color, and 10:30 am will be for all 11th and 12th-grade white students. There will be an announcement made before each meeting to dismiss students to the cafeteria.”

     At first the school tried to justify it.

“‘Our diversity consultant is hosting two meetings in hopes of creating a safe space to allow students to be transparent about their experiences at DA. We realize that we can’t control what happens outside of school but it does impact the lives of students and they bring that with them to school. We are not immune to what happens in the world around us and are attempting to be proactive in our methods. If last year taught us anything it is that we still have a lot of work to do regarding race relations as a nation and a school.’”

     They canceled the even for now and offered a non-apology apology:

“‘Working with consultants in the area of diversity, an event scheduled for Thursday was communicated in such a way as to have the appearance of dividing, not uniting, our student body.

“‘One of our core values as a school is a belief that the arts is a powerful way to bridge differences among people. We now realize that the communication around the event and the manner in which the event itself was organized are contrary to our values and to the goals we have for improving our culture. Therefore, we are revisiting our approach with our consultants and will develop a new strategy for leading our students through these sensitive topics and conversations. The events scheduled for Thursday are being canceled while we reconsider our approach.’”

     They didn’t apologize for implementing segregation, but for not being able to get away with it. The segregation wasn’t contrary to their values, only the way they communicated their intent!

Making Babies Check Their White Privilege

     Not even pushing Critical Race Theory in K—12 education is enough. Now, White babies must be purged of their Whiteness from birth and constantly reminded that even as a helpless infant, they are evil oppressors who should fight against things associated with their race, which is necessarily evil.

     The veritable Christopher Rufo yet again obtained source documents from an “‘equity’ toolkit” from the Arizona Department of Education.

     Notice how they claim that racism is caused by “letting children draw their own conclusion based on what they see”.

     Ya know, if you have to have a monopoly on what people think, then maybe, juuust maybe, it is you who are imposing a system of oppression.

I Learned It From You Leviathan!

     One of the most distinct effects of any totalitarian system is the primacy of childcare and dependency being the honor and duty of a child’s parents, but rather the purview of the state. Even today, those on the Left who openly admit to their totalizing ideology that while parents may have custody of a child and be the ones who have to shell out their time and money, said child is still Leviathan’s child in reality.

     Remember how it was the parents job and responsibility to teach their children and be expected to be the first to intervene to keep issues, such as drug use, even if the parents themselves are imperfect, such as with the (in)famous “I learned it from you Dad” anti-drug PSA:

     Indeed, in many states abortion, contraceptives, and even gender “transitioning” are things that a parent has no say over, assuming that the state even lets the parent know about it to begin with, and now New Jersey is adding drug abuse and addiction to what parents aren’t allowed to know about their own children.

“A new law in New Jersey is sparking criticism from parents and police officers throughout the state, as the bill restricts law enforcement from notifying the parents of minors who are caught with possession of marijuana or alcohol.

“The law, signed in February by Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy, allows people to carry up to 6 ounces of marijuana. It also prohibits police officers from notifying parents when their child is caught by law enforcement with marijuana or alcohol for the child’s first incident. After the first reported incident, officers can relay the information back to parents.

“However, police note that there is not a way to confirm if a minor has any prior incidents reported.”

     ‘Twould seem that parents no longer are responsible, even if a child suffers in the long term.

     Children no longer learn their behavior from their parents who can raise them and correct them when they tread down a dangerous path. They’ll learn if from you, Leviathan, they’ll learn it from you.

Racial Struggle Sessions In Nevada Schools

     A “White-presenting” student, and not even a student who unequivocally White, was humiliated and denigrated for his “Whiteness” amongst a Nevada class of otherwise non-White students, including requirements that he admit his “privilege” and how he, and he alone in the class, benefits from oppression.   Thankfully, good people are standing up against this, and have filed a lawsuit, with a request for an emergency motion for preliminary injunction.

     The school authorities, and those behind this, gave a rather pathetic response. The lawyers for the victim of the schools racial animus “destroyed”, as the kids now-a-days say, the school’s arguments in a reply.

     It beatdown just gets worse from here.

The Ides of March

I hear a tongue shriller than all the music
Cry “Caesar!” Speak, Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the ides of March.

Caesar:
What man is that?

Brutus:
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.

     A little mood music:
