‘The Longer You Are in the Tea Party, the More Racist You Become’: What Educators Learned
theblaze.com ^ | may 9, 2014 | erica ritz

Posted on 05/10/2014 11:40:38 AM PDT by lowbridge

Would it surprise you to learn that educators were recently taught at the fifteenth annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, that “racism is central to America;” “the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become;” and “this country was built on white principles for white people”?

-snip

The trio said the speakers repeatedly emphasized how important it is to start teaching students about “white privilege” when they are as young as four and five years old, and that they also conflated racism was conflated with capitalism.

Olson said one of the main messages was, “in order to deal with racism … we need to attack capitalism and [change] our very economic structure and economic system.”

Hoft added: “It’s not about moving the country, moving society, in a positive direction … It’s very clear that they’re just pushing Marxism.”

The whole 'White Priviledge' thing is getting tiresome.

It's way past time to start shouting down these < redacted > and repudiate them.

Another sad attempt to get whitey to pay for their lack of accomplishment.

Well racists, we're done paying. Get off your posteriors and make something of your existence.

Always excuses. "I'm a useless spore because the white man set up the system for himself."

Duh.

Of course the people who built this country did it for themselves, but were decent enough to make provision for others.

Whitey made a country that allows you to succeed. That doesn't mean you don't have to try.

Ok....Conservatives have known that the government indoctrination camps have been preaching godlessness, racism, fear of guns, and anti-Americanism.

Right now, nearly every teacher in this nation, both in private and government schools, from K-12 through graduate school, were trained by godless Marxists in Marxist-run colleges and universities.

So?...What is the plan, conservatives? Hm?

And...NO! Reform is not, not, not possible. It is impossible to reform a K-12 system that is, and **always** has been, a single-payer, compulsory-use, compulsory-funded, and socialist-entitlement MONSTROSITY!

Celebrating 100 years!

“There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. ~ Booker T. Washington (1856-1915.) ~ Educator, Author, Civil Rights Leader

Racism is the the refusal to accept cultural relativity.

If you agree that Trayvon was the result of the low-end African-American thug culture, you are by liberal definition, a racist. Trayvon's culture is to be celebrated, not demeaned.

All cultures must be equal in validity, including the Thugee Sect, Ghetto Gangsters, etc. Rap just as good as Mozart. Fathering multiple illegitimate children by different mothers (and not supporting them) just as good as nuclear families. Welfare just as good as work. Islam just as good for the US and Europe as Western Christian Culture ... maybe better.

Disagree? Well then, you are a racist. Hegemonic, Patriarchal, Gender Normative, Imperialistic, Capitalistic, Eurocentric, etc. Deal wit it.

...“this country was built on white principles for white people”

I am so SICK of these a$$hats referring to me and folks who think like me as racists. I’ll take that challenge, any day.

IF the statement from the article is true (it isn’t), then it begs the questions:

What are [insert ethnic group of your choice] principles?

How are the ‘principles’ of any other ethnic group so diametrically opposed to those I hold?

Freedom and liberty are color blind, just as they are independent of hair length, tattoo choices, foot size, and myriad other characteristics that make me unique in the world of human beings.

We may (and likely do) disagree on the utility of fedgov meddling incessantly in the lives of the people, but that has NOTHING to do with ethnicity, UNLESS one holds that some ethnic group or another is incapable of running their own lives for their own benefit within the constraints of common law. The logical conclusion is that the folks calling me racist ARE IN FACT THE REAL RACISTS.

Liberals always say “never label people”, yet, they label anyone that doesn’t agree with them as ‘racists’.

The term ‘racist’ has lost its meaning.

I have seen a lot of racism in the past 20 years, and the vast majority of it is anti-white. It comes from the left and from groups who are not necessarily minorities on the planet, but who are minorities in the US. That's just the truth. Having said that, most people, MOST, are not racists. People may have subconscious prejudices etc., and we all have to work on those things, but overt racism is not something that is holding many people back in this country (there are always exceptions).

On the other hand, try getting fair treatment if you admit to being a Republican or a ‘conservative’ in any environment that is primarily liberal.

The only power those scum have is tyranny. The only way they get to lord it over your head is if you let them.

Our Founders showed us how to deal with tyrants when reasoning with them became an exercise in futility.

It's futile to have any kind of discussion with such people. They would see you in chains or executed if they could.

The Tea Party is about Liberty and Freedom from Tyranny.

The only “racists” in sight are those seeking to keep minorities under their control, in order that they may retain power.

They’re never going to stop, because then they’d have to succeed or fail on their own merits, and apparently they themselves believe it would be “fail”. We began with civil rights, moved to equality, then affirmative action, then disparity of results, now “white privilege”. When that’s played out, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be a new meme coming out the pipeline. It will never end, because it’s all they have. Just like the poverty racket, the racism racket is self-perpetuating and eternal.

My great, great, great, great ....grandfather fought to have his liberty from King George. His children/grand children fought to give the black man the OPPORTUNITY TO LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

My question is this...what have THEY done to squander that opportunity?

YOU don’t like my whiteman’s principles? Why? Because they are too hard in demanding a moral character? A moral character that someone in YOUR history laid his life down for?! Tell me...tell me again who freakin’ died to give you the OPPORTUNITY to have freedom?

Who today gives you that opportunity? No one man? Bullshit, yeah I done went there and said it...BULLSHIT! Every person who pays taxes, every entrepreneur who funds a scholarship, every church that puts food in your mouth gives you an opportunity to better yourself. And you best damn well learn that, that opportunity is an UNEARNED PRIVLEDGE.

All those people supporting themselves...and your sorry backside are not privileged to do that. It is you who is privileged, you ungrateful excuse for an American.

‘The Longer You Are in the Tea Party, the More Racist You Become’: What Educators Learned

Well YEAH.... I mean DUH....

Liberals have redefined the word 'racist' to mean having any disagreement with any liberal about any topic.

Therefore, this statement in the headline is a total given.
