I was shocked to read this today, at first:
A WA teacher’s union president says reopening schools is an example of “white supremacy,” concern over a child’s mental health or suicide risk is “white privilege,” and [the] push to reopen schools is like rioters pushing to enter the U.S. Capitol.
Then I realized I should not be surprised.
I know that not all teachers believe this sort of insanity, but more and more do. After a half-decade of indoctrination in universities (which used to be called “teacher’s colleges” or even “normal schools), we should expect this. The “terror” of the Beer Flu pandemic and the mental instability caused by the evil Donald Trump for the last four years is surely a reason to excuse this sort of craziness.
(Yes, I’m being sarcastic.)
But regardless of whether this panic and freaking out is understandable or not, I cannot think that ANYone would want their children to be taught by people with these kinds of mental problems. Even social justice warriors and extreme Democrat “leftists.” (Assuming, of course, that they do procreate.)
These kinds of crazy claims and accusations are more and more common, and just not from teachers. We can, for instance, turn to the many statements made by Congress-creatures (from both old parties) since the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol three weeks ago. And in the bills introduced in that institution. I don’t know whether they need to be placed in an institution (for their own good but especially OUR good). Or whether we just need to recognize that Congress IS an institution for the criminally insane.
(I don’t think I am exaggerating TOO much to say that Arkham Asylum (from the DC Batman stories) might pale in comparison to the evil and madness seen under that big iron dome in the District of Criminals. The evil of the Joker, Harly Quinn, Poison Ivy and the rest of those inmates is tangible, but none of them kill (or support/facilitate killing) or steal on anything close to the scale of the FedGov. All enabled, ordered, and/or tolerated by the Conscript Parents in the Senate and the Pervert’s House on the other side of the building.
Though the FedGov is bad and a horrific example to the States (whose servant it is supposed to be), nowadays, some States are trying very hard to exceed the evil nature and the insanity we see in various Statehouses. Every day there is a new example of the next stupid act imposed on their people by their “elected representatives” and/or their “freely and democratically-elected” dictator, tyrant, or monarch. Not just in red States, but blue ones as well.
Megalomania? Absolutely. Proud and arrogant and supreme in their confidence that they are the elite (or the vanguard of the proletariat). Certain that people are too stupid and cowed to object. And ensuring that any which ARE not stupid or cowed are dealt with.
If we were still a federation, we could vote more with our feet than people are now, to escape from the nutcases running their State to another State where the “leaders” are not quite as insane. (Thus you have people escaping from California to move to Colorado, and people escaping from Colorado to Wyoming – even while people are starting to flee Wyoming for South Dakota.)
But the FedGov is role model, instigator, and facilitator of the insane behavior of “civil servants” (simple civil masters, honestly). And with the grand insider and government geek, Mr. Joe, in charge? (Well, his handlers…) It is getting worse by the day.
Which brings up the subject of our own sanity. That of the people of these States: are we not insane to accept this sort of thing? Whether it is schools or local governments or FedGov? Are we not exhibiting some of the same acceptance of unreality as these?
More than ever, we need to just say no, and then demonstrate that we really mean it. No to laws, no to regs, no to nonsense spouting from the really insane, no cooperation, and no support – no taxes.
Think on it.
