It is time to admit that public education operates like a planned economy. Itâ€™s a bureaucratic system where everybodyâ€™s role is spelled out in advance, and there are few incentives for innovation and productivity. Itâ€™s not a surprise when a school system doesnâ€™t improve. It more resembles a Communist economy than our own market economy.
Between Critical Race Theory (CRT), the rewriting of history, pro-Chinese propaganda, “teaching” to the lowest common denominator, and the sexual predators, i.e., #Groomers, that have infiltrated our education system, there’s a lot of sickness in our schools. Parents need to be aware of the symptoms.
While in general this is nothing new among the Left, it’s always face-palmingly bizarre, but freaking hilarious, to see, hear, or read of the Woke sorts turning on each other and devouring their own.
In this case, it’s that very Woke, very social justice conscious mixed-race, immigrant, queer couple, Sonam Parikh and Kate Egghart, had to close their cafe, Mina’s Café, in Philadelphia because of the actions of their even more woke and much more hate-filled employees despite the fact that Mina’s Café’s whole point was to be an exclusive them “safe space” for queers and trans of color and was staffed entirely by others like them.
Cannibalism Or Autophagia
I’m not, and I’m pretty sure nobody else is, sure about exactly what these woke freaks’ revolt was over, except possibly just wanting to seize the business for themselves in an orgy of quasi-violently applied Socialism, but it really doesn’t matter in the long run. They ate their own.
And Egghart’s and Parikh’s capitulation video was creepy as Hell too. It looked like a hostage video and, in all senses of the phrase except physical restraint, it likely was exactly that.
Well, the uber woke “workers” got half their wishes. Mina’s World closed last week. Of course, that means they’re out of work and, given what they are and how they’ve so publicly acted, that unemployment will most likely and rightly be very long-term if not permanent.
Starting in the mid-1950s, America has been dealing with nigh on constant cries – often violent cries – for equality and the destruction of what racial activists have decried as White Supremacy. That was, as problematical and poorly thought out as it was, a necessary pain. There was at that time deliberate and government-enforced inequality between Whites and non-Whites. As such, cries for equality were not inherently a bad thing.
In all truth, back then, it was a good and necessary thing that they won and that the Civil Rights Movement, for all its chaos and flaws, won the day. Though, even then, it was not enough for the Blacks or their enablers and even the venerated MLK later decided that “reparations” should be handed out to his people, thereby setting the stage for later woes.
And therein was the rot that twisted and distorted Civil Rights into the sick caricature and anti-American thing it is today. Equality was decided soon after it was achieved to be not nearly enough.
Equity vs. Equality
Equality – what used to be purported as a good thing and a goal – meant each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity – the Left’s and their minorities’ newspeak for wanting more – states that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome irrespective of those circumstances or their input into the process.
Yes; that’s the sad and maddening truth of what Civil Rights have been corrupted into devolving down to. Equality is deprecated among minorities, especially the Blacks, and their “woke” enablers in these times. Now the word is “Equity” and it is a strident demand for special privileges and advantages, preferably and most often mandatorily at the expense of White people, especially White Men, and most especially Straight White Men.
And this isn’t just hateful and wrongheaded rhetoric. Both government agencies and private sector corporations are putting tangible measure into place to give minorities special advantages and privileges, including but not limited to: prioritized hiring and promotions, special career-based educational programs, and special protections against Whites.
At The Risk Of “Shadowing” Things
At the marginal risk of “shadowing” the issue and its problems, and repeating the judgemental errors of the Warren Court’s opinion on Roe v. Wade, it’s my opinion that the actions taken to further Equity instead of Equality are not just wrong, racist, sexist, heterophobic, and pernicious, they’re unconstitutional and a violation of White people’s – specially Straight White Men – Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. There is little to no functional difference between providing special benefits to people based upon their race, creed, color, gender, or sexual proclivities and denying them such based upon those same criteria. Either way, it falls solidly under the Penumbra of the 14th Amendment and, hence, should be considered a violation of the Civil Rights Act.
Of course, the Left, their minorities, and their politicians disagree with this. Or rather, even if they agree with the premise, they don’t care. Their point in switching from equality to equity was explicitly to take current wealth and future opportunity from Whites and redistribute to others. And, the taking is at least as important to them as their redistributing is.
It’s extremely ironic – sad, often insane, and a clear a present danger to its adherents and those around them, but still ironic – that the LGBTQIA+ rainbow flag is inherently a symbol of division and segregation. After all, White is color of light that is of all parts of the spectrum in unity and harmony and the rainbow is that light broken apart and kept separate. 😉
Ignore the latest would-be plague that the Leftists’ Lamestream Media is trying to promulgate, Monkeypox. It’s Donkeypox that is the disease that’s infected America and which is disfiguring it and slowly killing it.
