University Professor John Caputo Denounces Sanity as Racist

Sanity itself is politically incorrect according to our moonbat ruling class. That isn’t hyperbole; it’s what students are learning at school — at least if they are taking classes from John Caputo:

A philosophy and religion professor at Syracuse University gave an interview to The New York Times Thursday in which he critiqued the notion of pure reason as simply being a “white male Euro-Christian construction.”

Prof. John Caputo was being interviewed by fellow philosophy professor George Yancy for the 13th installment of an interview series Yancy conducts with philosophers regarding racial topics.

Professor Kaput pontificates:

“‘White’ is of the utmost relevance to philosophy, and postmodern theory helps us to see why,” Caputo says in the interview. “I was once criticized for using the expression ‘true north.’ It reflected my Nordo-centrism, my critic said, and my insensitivity to people who live in the Southern Hemisphere. Of course, no such thing had ever crossed my mind, but that points to the problem. We tend to say ‘we’ and to assume who ‘we’ are, which once simply meant ‘we white male Euro-Christians.’

The end result of critiquing whiteness, Caputo suggests, is the realization that the supposed “reason” underlying philosophy is just another form of white privilege … or something of that nature.

“I think that what modern philosophers call ‘pure’ reason — the Cartesian ego cogito and Kant’s transcendental consciousness — is a white male Euro-Christian construction,” he says. “White is not ‘neutral.’ ‘Pure’ reason is lily white, as if white is not a color or is closest to the purity of the sun, and everything else is ‘colored.’ Purification is a name for terror and deportation, and ‘white’ is a thick, dense, potent cultural signifier that is closely linked to rationalism and colonialism. What is not white is not rational. So white is philosophically relevant and needs to be philosophically critiqued — it affects what we mean by ‘reason’ — and ‘we’ white philosophers cannot ignore it.”

There was a time when people like this were kept in rubber rooms. But now the ruling class has a use for them.

For progressivism to succeed, the destruction of Western Civilization must be absolute. Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad. So philosophy is turned over to malevolent lunatics, in an attempt to do to the concept that 2 + 2 = 4 what they just did to the Confederate flag.

  1. Okay. *huffs and puffs*

    This guy is clearly off his rocker (Yep, I’m a RAAAAAAAAAAAACIST)!

    Also, white reflects all of the colors of the rainbow, therefore white people are the most ‘colored’ of ’em all. Black is actually the lack of color. Take that, doody-bubble brain.

    This all makes perfect sense though considering the lunatics are running the asylum. “Hey, my crazy is normal, your normal is crazy!”

    Good grief.

    Serenity now (insanity later)!

    In a system where people are rewarded for undermining human achievement rather than building on it (the whole “critical theory” deal just being another form of cultural warfare), this is what you get. I could be wrong, but I still don’t think most of these academics actually believe their own horse shit. If I’m right, that makes them the worst possible sell-outs.

    And he gets to mentally masturbate to the tune of $200k per year or more, no doubt. May he be the next victim of a “polar bear hunt”. Pethaps “Trayvon” will abscond with his ATM card and pin and clean out his bank account too. Do you suppose that might assuage his “white privelege?”

    fella: You need to go north, then bear right at the fork in the road…

    critic: You’re just showing your nordo-centrism, and there is no way in hell I am voting for a Republican!!

    I had thought that the reason that most maps are oriented ( another eurocentrism) to the North was that most of the people who made maps as well as most of the land to be mapped is in the Northern hemisphere. We have also had the convenience of a fairly bright and easy to find star over our North Pole. It doesn’t hurt that our planet’s magnetic field has one of its poles near the North pole.
    This guy has studied very hard to ignore, what in times past, ‘ every schoolboy knows’. People like him are probably the reason why we don’t hear that phrase much, outside of old books and movies.

  38. Ray Caruso says:

    I thought “true north” meant in the direction of the geographic North Pole rather than of the magnetic pole. But then again, geography is a white construct. And so is thought.

    True north is racist? News flash ass breath, north isn’t a race. The Southern Hemisphere is a geographic region, not a race, Euro-Christian is not a race.

    Notice how the entire justification for his position is anti-white racism. Nothing in his rambling diatribe is even remotely related to race, except whites. As I have said many times, progressives are natural born racists.

    If Herr Doktor really believes this load of bullshit, he should off himself, TODAY!

    These lunatics cannot be reasoned with, or bargained with. They must be destroyed if civilization is to survive.

    We have White Supremacy, Professor, because for 2500 years we, whites, have produced the best minds on the planet, the greatest flourishing of the arts and sciences ever seen, the most complex and organized societies. We have White Supremacy, whatever exactly it may be, because we have been the earth’s most successful race. No other has come close. Deal with it. Now, it isn’t that we whites want to be supreme. It is just that we haven’t been able to help it. It isn’t our fault that we produced Newton, Archimedes, Einstein, and all those mutants. They are just birth effects, things that happen to even the best families. You have to play the hand you are dealt. A little sympathy would be appropriate.

    The question I’ve got is why we should even pay attention to the pronouncements of people who have virtually no knowledge of life outside their academic specialties?

    Yes, they’re ‘experts’ in their field. Yay for them – but it’s entirely possible to focus so hard on one aspect of your field and completely lose sight of the much broader world.

    (And then you’ve got to wonder how much of his attitude is because he’s been indoctrinated to believe that anything other than the accepted groupthink is horribly and totally racist.)
