We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Habermann at the NYT saying playing "Edelweiss" was a nod to Nazi sympathies is even dumber than Tucker intimates. Not only was "The Sound of Music" an anti-Nazi musical, but it the song wasn't published till 1959.
We need accountability. The people who are behind the hoax need to be exposed, arrested, tried and imprisoned. Or they will keep on doing this.
I saw video clips from MSNBC, CBS and NBC last night on YouTube and it was like nothing had changed, they were just one lie after another., starting with claiming that the Russians were being directed by Trump because of his speech at the campaign rally. The only good thing is they would have like 100 upvotes and 5,000 downvotes, although, for the MSNBC clips, YouTube kept on erasing the downvotes.
The Teaching And Learning Program Manager at MIT libraries, Sofia Leung (“I believe that social justice work is library work and that we should all be collectively engaged in our liberation”), has detected impurity in the stacks.
She hates old books because white people wrote them and loved them. That’s what it amounts to. This woman is not some SJW kook beavering away in the basement of Evergreen State, or a dyspeptic grad student in Grievance Studies. She is an important librarian at MIT. What’s more, the venerable trade publication Library Journal tweeted her blog entry. The blog entry in which she calls for the purging of library collections because white people wrote them and loved them and collected them. Their existence offends her sense of justice.
Do you not see what’s happening here? Those who control a culture’s memory control its people. Sofia “Social Justice Work Is Library Work” Leung wants to throw certain books down the memory hole because they are racially impure. If this catches on, then some sane institutions stand to inherit some valuable books tossed out by woke universities … unless Sofia Leung Thought requires the burning of those whiteness grimoires so they can’t pollute the minds of others ever again.
