Ibram X. Kendi Shoots Both Feet

Ibram Henry Rogers, or as he calls himself nowadays, Ibram X. Kendi, is bright enough to have monetized his hatred of white people with a lucrative scam that bilks self-hating white liberals. His outfit raked in $10 million in a single donation from Twitter’s top moonbat Jack Dorsey. Yet it turns out that Kendi is not so bright after all. He made a mockery of his own bogus ideology with a single tweet:

On Friday, Kendi shared a news article of a recent survey that discovered more [than] one-third of white students lied or misrepresented their race on college applications.

Four-fifths of white students who admitted to lying or misrepresenting their race said they did so to improve their chances of being accepted. Half of those students who admitted to lying explained they did so to improve their chances of being awarded financial aid earmarked for minority students.

There are plenty of racial impostors out there, but nobody pretends to be white. People who are half-white/half-black, like Obama, call themselves black, so as to avail themselves of the obvious advantages.

Yet according to the critical race theory ideology that Kendi has exploited to achieve fame and fortune, blacks are oppressed. The systemic racism that permeates every aspect of society works not in favor of blacks, like in the real world of Affirmative Action, but against them. That’s why Black Lives Matter mobs are justified to burn down the police station and loot Target.

It should be obvious to a small child that CRT is utter BS, yet the liberal establishment has managed to gaslight a large percentage of the population into treating it as if it were valid. Kendi doesn’t make the job of journalists and educators easier with tweets like this:

Kendi deleted the original tweet after realizing that he had shot himself in the foot. But the gales of laughter continued, forcing him to resort to rhetoric:

“A White man is attacking a Black person with lies (which are violent). The Black person resists. The White man keeps attacking until he declares he ‘broke’ the Black person,” Kendi responded to one person on Twitter.

Criticism of a black leftist = lies = violence, so shut up. Not much of an argument, but no doubt it passes for sophistication at Boston University, where Kendi spews his race hate and where undergraduate tuition runs $58,560.

The liberal establishment will forgive its golden boy Kendi for the misstep above — not for this one though:

“Even talking about gender, you know, I think it was last week my daughter came home and said she wanted to be a boy,” Kendi said in a video that includes his name on the screen. “You know, which was horrifying for my wife to hear, myself to hear.”

Exhibit A for the prosecution:

Transsexuals tower above even blacks atop the cultural Marxist pyramid of power. Ibram X. Kendi can hate whites until the bile bursts out his eye sockets, but he still stands exposed as a thought criminal.

Ibram X. Kendi Tries and Fails to Define Racism

Ibram X. Kendi has become wealthy and powerful by denouncing the racism of Caucasians. Public schools pay Kendi as much as $333 per minute to discuss the topic. Jack Dorsey of the Big Tech Thought Police gave him $10 million to showcase his own wokeness. Yet Kendi cannot even define what the word “racism” means. His lame attempt would serve as a good example if you want to explain to a 6-year-old what the term “circular definition” means:

“So racism, I would define it as a collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.”

Seriously, that’s his definition. He could have saved himself a few syllables by just saying, “Racism is that which is racist.”

As you can see, the pretentious and not very bright Ibram X. Kendi is a bad joke. That makes him suited for his prominent role in America’s self-inflicted demise. The country is choking to death on the bad joke that is modern liberalism.

Racial Arsonist Paid Ibram X. Kendi $333/Minute by Public School

As noted earlier, Caucasian-hater Ibram X. Kendi is nowhere near as dumb as his rhetoric, having realized that there is big money in moonbattery. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave him $10 million. Taxpayers must have deep pockets too:

The Fairfax County school district is defending its decision to pay $20,000 for an author who spoke to its administration and school leaders about racism for one hour.

That comes to over $333 per minute. Not bad pay for spewing poisonous lies. I wonder if he shared with the educrats his insight that Amy Coney Barrett is reprehensibly guilty of colonialism for adopting children from Haiti.

FOX 5 asked the district if the money could have been spent on something more germane to the current education climate – like technology training for teachers or more resources for transitioning back to in-person learning.

They say funds allocated for COVID-19 have specific uses beyond Kendi’s presentation.

Funds allocated for… What the…?!?!?!

Looks federal taxpayers financed Kendi’s pernicious BS in the name of COVID-19.

This poisonous ideology is largely responsible for the riots that have been tearing our country apart. That’s why Trump admirably banned critical race theory brainwashing for government employees and federal contractors.

If only bureaucrats would pile up our money and set it on fire, instead of using it to systematically destroy American society.

Jack Dorsey Gave $10 Million to Radical Racist Ibram X. Kendi

How crazy would you have to be to castigate Amy Coney Barrett on grounds of “colonialism” for rescuing Haitian children from poverty by adopting them?

Maybe not so crazy, when there are people like Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey throwing their money around:

For reasons that the future historians who analyze our decline will struggle to understand, there is big money in moonbattery.

Dorsey is one of a handful of people with a stranglehold on the flow of information. Twitter is so arrogant that it repeatedly censors the President of the USA for ideological reasons.

If Democrats prevail in November, that stranglehold will tighten. This is great news for malevolent lunatics, but not such great news for the rest of us.

Biden Effect on Military Recruitment

The effect on the military of allowing Biden and his leftist handlers to take control has been devastating:

[E]very branch of the military is facing a drastic shortfall of new enlistees. As of late June, the Army was 60% short of its target numbers. The Air Force is 4,000 short on new recruits. Though the Navy and Marine Corps won’t release figures until later this year, they have also acknowledged that they are unlikely to meet recruitment quotas.

What is driving people away from the armed forces? The moonbattery and incompetence (if not treason) that are personified by Joe Biden:

On this front, nothing looms larger than President Joe Biden’s disastrous evacuation from Afghanistan last year, which left 13 American service members dead. Following the debacle, a report on the attitudes of Afghanistan veterans found that “73% feel betrayed, and 67% feel humiliated.”

Wokeness under Democrat control is suffocating:

Pentagon bureaucrats and Biden administration officials have also plowed ahead with their plans to “wokeify” the military, alienating vast swaths of Americans in the process. The Army and Navy have both pushed Critical Race Theory texts like Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be An Anti-Racist on their “recommended reading list.” CRT has also made its way into the curriculum at West Point and other military academies. Just last month, the Navy was slammed for forcing new recruits to watch training videos on “proper pronoun usage.” Several Republicans in Congress have also raised concerns about woke policies in this year’s military funding bill.

Those who want to be homosexualized and preached to about the racistness of their white skin go into academia or journalism, not the military.

To be an effective soldier, you have to believe you are fighting for something worthwhile. Who in their right mind would risk their life for the agenda of people like Joe Biden, Lloyd Austin, Mark Milley, and Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby, a damp bureauweenie willing to pretend that the real enemy is climate change?

The leftist kooks who rule over us do not engender patriotism.

Moonbats Defile Monticello

To destroy a nation, you have to turn it against its own heritage. You have to tear down its greatest heroes. This is why the Black Lives Matter riots prominently featured the destruction of statues of the Founding Fathers. It is why Monticello — long preserved as a shrine to the greatness of the author of the Declaration of Independence — is now being used by America’s enemies to propagandize against its creator Thomas Jefferson:

The new emphasis is the culmination of a 10-year effort to balance the historical record, officials of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the nonprofit that owns the estate, have said.

But visitors complain that employees go out of their way to belittle Jefferson and his life.

Jefferson has been targeted for erasure on the grounds that he took part in a society that did not comply with 21st standards of political correctness. Like the rest of the landowners in 18th century Virginia, he had slaves.

Already his statue has been expelled from New York City Council by Bill de Blasio after nearly 2 centuries. Now they have transformed Monticello into a soapbox from which to denounce him, rendering the monument pointless.

The propaganda is executed with the subtlety we have come to expect of progressives. The ticket booth in the visitor’s center is “decorated with a contemporary painting of Jefferson’s weeping slaves.” Exhibits focus on Sally Hemings, a mixed race slave with whom Jefferson allegedly had children. If liberals prevail, this possibly fictional relationship is all that will be remembered about him.

Upon entering the mansion, visitors are confronted by a gigantic modern painting of a faceless black man. It was commissioned in honor of “Juneteenth.” Smirks Monticello guide Susan Woodward,

“It’s quite provocative, I do believe.”

The book shop features the excretions of proponents of critical race theory Ibram X. Kendi and Ta-Nehisi Coates. How provocative.

The message that Jefferson owned slaves and was therefore a bad man is ubiquitous. Visitors are also belligerently reminded that Monticello was built on land where sacred savages once roamed happy and free, before evil white people like Jefferson came to oppress them.

This will surprise no one:

The Thomas Jefferson Foundation is run by a roster of big-money Dem donors and former Democratic officials…

The foundation is chaired by Melody Barnes, former assistant to Barack Obama and director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, who has griped in WaPo about all the nice things people say about that scoundrel Thomas Jefferson.

Allowing leftists to take over Monticello is like putting satanists in charge of the Vatican.

$4 Million to Be Forgiven for Friends Cast Being White

About Catholics defines an indulgence as “remission (removal) of temporal punishment for sin in response to certain prayers or spiritual works.” The corrupt buying and selling of indulgences helped launch the Reformation back in the 16th century. Yet the practice continues to this day, having been revived by our state religion, Critical Race Theory. Marta Kauffman is paying $4 million to remit punishment for the sin of creating a sitcom about white people:

Kauffman has pledged $4 million to African and African American studies as she apologised for the lack of diversity on ‘Friends’.

The 65-year-old, who created the sitcom with David Crane, 64, gave the donation to her alma mater, the Boston area’s Brandeis University, to create an endowed professorship.

Her Marta F Kauffman ’78 Professorship in African and African American Studies will support a distinguished scholar with a concentration in the study of the peoples and cultures of Africa.

That is, her indulgence payment will fund racist demagogues along the lines of Ibram X. Kendi of nearby Boston University.

Kauffman said she felt “embarrassed” ‘Friends’ featured a predominantly white cast.

Crawling in self-abasement before the vengeful gods of CRT, Kauffman bleats,

“Admitting and accepting guilt is not easy. It’s painful looking at yourself in the mirror.”

Her fellow moonbats will not forgive her. They never do. Forgiveness has no place in their religion.

North Korean Defector Terrified by Our Public Schools

Yeonmi Park escaped from North Korea at age 13, so she recognizes what has been going on in our government schools:

“This is exactly the dictator’s handbook. … They always go for young children because they have [not] lived their life enough to… have critical thinking skills. Their brains are very plastic, very malleable…”

She also recognizes the attempt by the ruling class to control us by controlling our language:

“So the thing about North Korea is that is so oppressed to the point we don’t even have the word for oppression… There’s actually even the control of the language in words. And this is why it concerns me where there’s such a something called a speech code, the things that we cannot talk about in America right now,” she added.

Warns Park,

“I think it’s our personal responsibility to protect as many … children as we can from this massive indoctrination coming from the left.”

The price of failure will be America becoming another North Korea.

Park added that Ibram X. Kendi’s antiracist socialism, whose concepts are taught in many U.S. schools, terrifies her. She recalls how North Koreans gave up their land and rights for the sake of equality and ended up getting nothing in return.

At least Park had the possibility of escaping to America. If leftists like Kendi prevail, where will the next generation of Americans escape to?

Cultural Revolution survivor Lily Tang Williams seconds Park’s warning:

Devotion to Wokeness Sends Netflix Into Tailspin

People are tuning out the endless barrage of moonbattery that gushes out of their TVs like a leaky sewer main. The woke are going broke: Disney, CNN, the odious Jon Stewart, and best of all, one of the most pernicious forces in modern society, Netflix:

Netflix saw its stock tank 25 percent after it reported losing 200,000 subscribers in the company’s first quarter – the sharpest decline in a decade. …

With the closing of the second quarter, Netflix is projected to lose 2 million global subscribers.

In desperation to raise revenue, Netflix is going to try inflicting ads. That will not increase viewership, but refraining from producing crap like this might:

Then again, it might be too late. The public already associates Netflix with in your face and down your throat moonbattery. As Elon Musk notes,

“The woke mind virus is making Netflix unwatchable.”

This is the cancerous company that created Cuties, a series sexualizing prepubescent girls, and Dear White People, devoted to denouncing whites as bigots. It has worked with and/or glamorized the most reprehensible representatives of the ultraleft, including professional haters of whites and America Ibram X. Kendi and Colin Kaepernick. It gave $50 million to the Obamas out of Democrat cronyism.

Speaking of the Obamas,

What, people don’t want to listen to the Moonbat Messiah drone about how wonderful he is? Who would have guessed?

Wokeness has reached maximum saturation. At last, the floodwaters can begin to recede.

Okay Groomers

A prominent talking point in the liberal establishment media is to express righteous indignation against those who use the term “groomers” to refer to the LGBT militants and their allies who hysterically oppose Florida’s much needed Parental Rights in Education law. The word hits home because it is accurate.

For example:

A transgender first-grade teacher named Ray Skyer at a Boston-area charter school was shockingly given permission by the school assistant principal to tell kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade students his views on gender identity.

The “identity share” encouraged by Brooke Roslindale School Assistant Principal Sarah Hammond occurred in a Zoom call instead of in person, so there is a video record.

Here’s how Skyer instructs children who don’t know better:

“So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or girl based on what they look like. Most of the time that guess is 100% correct; there are no issues whatsoever, but sometimes the doctor is wrong; the doctor makes an incorrect guess. When a doctor makes a correct guess, that’s when a person is called cisgender. When a doctor’s guess is wrong that’s when they are transgender.”

This passes for education under moonbat hegemony:

Kids are taught that the determination of whether a baby is a boy or a girl is not determined by chromosomes or genitalia, but is just a guess.

The implication is that doctors may as well flip a coin. Children are implicitly invited to wonder whether the doctor guessed wrong in their own case. The point is to destabilize children when they are at their most vulnerable, so as to render them more susceptible to recruitment into the LGBT world. It is straightforward grooming, as the Florida law is intended to prevent.

Skyer teaches first grade. The grooming starts even younger:

A preschool teacher has gone viral on social media after describing how she teaches her young, impressionable students about her personal life — including the fact that the teacher is polyamorous, gender-fluid, not identifying as either female or male — and that she is a pagan witch.

The genderfluid witch, which calls itself Lois Schwartz, gives us a glimpse of how children are instructed:

“And at one point I got a haircut, and I had gotten the sides of my mohawk shaved down and I come into work and one of the children goes, ‘Lois, are you a boy? You have short hair.’ And his sister goes, ‘No, Lois is a girl.’ And a third child, who is my favorite, suddenly yells, ‘No guys, we’ve been over this. Lois isn’t a boy or a girl. Lois is a witch. Duh.'”

People like this are molding the next generation in their image:

The only positive side to liberals controlling education is that it provides Allie Beth Stuckey with an opportunity to make fun of the Ibram X. Kendi/Robin DiAngelo type of grifter while subjecting groomers to their own woke style of rhetoric:

Anti-Defamation League Redefines Racism

Under liberal rule, we are told we are racists, and that this is the worst thing imaginable, by people whose worldview is quintessentially racist. Even some progressives may have enough self-awareness to feel squeamish about denouncing dissidents as racist while imposing an ideology centered on worship of blacks and hatred of whites. No matter; as their endless subtractions from the Newspeak Dictionary prove, leftists control the language.

The social justice warriors of the Anti-Defamation League are changing the definition of “racism” so as to exculpate racists like themselves. Their new definition of racism:

Racism: The marginalization and/or oppression of people of color based on a socially constructed racial hierarchy that privileges white people.

Racism isn’t racism; racism is what evil white people do.

Not even low-IQ race hustler Ibram X. Kendi could come up with a more preposterous definition. His definition of racism takes the circular route: “a collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.”

Expect Merriam-Webster to adopt the ADL definition soon.

A passage from Lewis Carroll comes to mind:

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”

“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master — that’s all.”

That was before the word “master” was excised from the Newspeak Dictionary.

Carrie Bourassa, Racial Impostor

As rule by cultural Marxists makes it ever more advantageous to belong to a group designated as “oppressed,” we see ever more racial impostors. The latest to be exposed is a faux-Indian named Carrie Bourassa:

A Canadian medical researcher who rose to become the nation’s top voice on indigenous health has been ousted from her government job and her university professorship — after suspicious colleagues investigated her increasingly fanciful claims of Native American heritage and learned she was a fraud.

Carrie Bourassa, a public health expert who served as scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, was suspended on Nov. 1, five days after the state-owned Canadian Broadcasting Corporation published a lengthy expose on her background.

Bourassa identifies as a member of the Métis nation. Her ancestors are actually from less politically fashionable Eastern Europe.

According to the ideology of our ruling class, a man can literally become a woman simply by claiming to be one. However, joining racial identity groups that have been granted cherished victim status is not so easy.

What did her in was getting carried away with the act:

Colleagues began to doubt Bourassa’s story as she began to add claims of Anishinaabe and Tlingit heritage to her tale — and took to dressing in stereotypically indigenous fashion.

It started to unravel in 2019, when she appeared in full tribal regalia — draped in an electric blue shawl, with a feather in her partially braided hair — to give a TEDx Talk at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

“My name is Morning Star Bear,” she said tearfully as the crowd cheered.

Poranna Gwiazda Niedźwiedź, more like it.

“I’m Bear Clan. I’m Anishinaabe Métis from Treaty Four Territory,” she proclaimed as she described an impoverished childhood beset by violence.

Please welcome Carrie Bourassa to the Racial Impostor List, where she has the embarrassing company of Elizabeth Warren, Rachel Dolezal, Kristen Rosen Gonzalez, Shaun King, Jessica Krug, CV Vitolo-Haddad, Satchuel Cole, and Kelly Kean Sharp.

As professional racist Ibram X. Kendi discovered the hard way, that so many whites pretend to be nonwhite exposes critical race theory as a preposterous lie. Good thing the liberal establishment has a backup religion in the global warming hoax — even if that too is a preposterous lie.

Salvation Army Switches Religions

No institution is immune from the Long March Through the Institutions. Once moonbattery has infiltrated, the rot spreads until the entire organization has been subverted and its original purpose subordinated to advancing leftism. This has happened even to the Salvation Army.

As noted earlier, when Chick-fil-A caved in to leftist bullies, it demonstrated submission by cutting off funding to the Salvation Army. Soon afterward, the Salvation Army followed suit:

The Salvation Army wants its white donors to give it more than just money this Christmas season. Its leadership is also demanding they apologize for being racist.

It’s part of a push by the Christian charitable organization to embrace the ideas of Black Lives Matter, an activist group working to, among other things, “dismantle white privilege” and “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”

The Salvation Army’s Alexandria-based leadership has created an “International Social Justice Commission” which has developed and released a “resource” to educate its white donors, volunteers and employees called Let’s Talk about Racism. It asserts Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic.. to black people or the culture, values and interests of the black community.” …

In an accompanying Study Guide on Racism, Salvation Army authors explain that all whites are racist, even if they don’t realize it.

With the possible exception of satanism, it would be hard to imagine an ideology more antithetical to Christianity than the Black Lives Matter/critical race theory brand of cultural Marxism that the Salvation Army has embraced. Ideologues who denounce all members of races they hate as “racist” deny that we are not interchangeable representatives of a race, but individuals with souls. As noted above, Black Lives Matter is explicitly hostile to the nuclear family, which it aspires to subvert and destroy. It was founded by self-avowed “trained Marxists.” Marxism is overtly hostile to Christianity; consequently, many Christians have perished under Marxist regimes. BLM promotes sexual perversion and degeneracy. Its ideology has inspired massive looting and hundreds of riots.

Not everyone is pleased to see the Salvation Army switch to the religion of wokeness:

“In my estimation, CRT is a Trojan horse taking in well-intentioned Christian enterprises that—because they care about justice and oppose oppression—naively promote the most serious threat to biblical Christianity I have seen in 50 years,” wrote Christian apologist and radio talk show host Greg Koukl in a Facebook post earlier this month.

Entitled An Open Letter to The Salvation Army, Koukl prefaces the post by informing TSA that he is terminating his monthly donations and directing them to another organization.

Koukl isn’t alone:

“I have been a faithful supporter of The Salvation Army for many years. My parents were supporters when they were alive, and they passed that down to me and my siblings. It was always a joy to see the red kettles around the holidays, as well as to hear of the efforts of TSA in helping the poor and those affected by disasters,” wrote Richard N. Nakano. “Now I have noticed TSA has taken a turn to the far left politically, championing and virtue signaling such ‘woke’ policies as LGBTQ ‘rights’ and CRT. I am very disappointed the TSA has turned away from its Christ-centered mission, and is now embracing such un-Christian, world-centered views.”

Nakano went on to write, “Until the TSA admits its error, denounces these woke views and turns back to its original foundations, I will NOT support it—financially or otherwise. There are other Christian organizations I can send my donations to, just as deserving and NOT politically subservient to the woke mob.”

Why give money to the Salvation Army when you can cut out the middle man and donate directly? Twitter top moonbat Jack Dorsey gave $10 million to Ibram Henry Rogers a.k.a. Ibram X. Kendi, whose race hate propaganda is explicitly endorsed by the Salvation Army.

Salvation Army Goes Woke

One after one, the institutions fall to the radical left. Those who have been kicked in the mouth by militant moonbats respond by kissing the boot that just knocked their teeth in. After CEO Dan Cathy expressed support for holy matrimony, Democrats and LGBT militants waged a war against Chick-fil-A, vandalizing stores and preventing them from opening. Cathy’s response was to publicly clean the sneakers of a representative faux-oppressed black rapper and call for whites to abase themselves before politically sacred blacks. The company began to shovel money at radical left causes and cut off funding to the Salvation Army, which the antihate crowd hates for being Christian. Now the Salvation Army itself is falling:

Despite being apolitical historically, The Salvation Army has begun to promote political and racial ideologies under the banner of its New York-based International Social Justice Commission …

The stated objective of the Salvation Army is to advance the Christian religion. However, it is being subverted to advance critical race theory instead. By evaluating people by their race instead of valuing them as individuals, CRT is fundamentally non-Christian.

The Salvation Army initiative attacks “colorblindness” on race with the same argument used by Ibram X. Kendi, author of the book “How to Be an Antiracist,” which is to characterize it as a false neutrality that reveals a person’s inner racism.

The initiative also includes definitions of institutional racism, systemic racism, and “Whiteness” that identify real or perceived differences in life outcomes (“inequities”) as attributable not to individual effort and other circumstances, but to discrimination.

White Salvationists are called upon to “repent” and offer “sincere apology” for being members of a racist race.

Until now, the Salvation Army has never been the least bit racist. On the contrary,

The organization was a trailblazer on racial equality.

But leftists don’t want equality. They want equity. This entails punishing groups targeted as “oppressors” and bestowing special advantages upon groups privileged to be called “oppressed.”

Critical theory is a poisonous ideology that works to empower some at the expense of others by instilling division and hatred. It is the polar opposite of Christianity. Its advocates infiltrate Christian organizations and render them un-Christian.
