Highlights from the National White Privilege Conference in Madiso, WI 2014.
The city of Madison hosted the 15th annual national White Privilege Conference last week at the Monona Terrace to discuss issues of white supremacy, social justice, education and the Tea Party. The MacIver Institute highlighted one of the breakout sessions on Tuesday about white privilege in the classroom.
We are continuing our coverage of the conference with more details about other sessions that were held. Our second account comes from the breakout session titled: Against the Tea Party.
The session was facilitated by Leonard Zeskind, a human rights activist who writes on the topics of racism, anti-Semitism and the white supremacist movement. He is a lifetime member of the NAACP and serves as the current president of the Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights, which regularly reports on the Tea Party. He is also the author of Blood and Politics: The History of White Nationalism from the Margins to the Mainstream and serves as a fellow for The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
Massive Progressive Liberal. Ministry of Truth all the way.
Zeskind began the session with a series of questions to gauge what the group was interested in and what the main focus of the discussion should be. Among questions about attendees’ views on the Tea Party, he took an opportunity to thank people for participating in the 2011 protests over Wisconsin’s collective bargaining reforms known as Act 10.
Which, they lost and the state suddenly was more prosperous. So that must be why the Liberals and their Union thugs hate the Tea Party.
“How many of you engaged in the fight on trade union rights in 2011?” he asked the group. About a third of the room had participated. “Give yourselves a hand.”
Zeskind said the goals of the session included discussing the structure and strategies of the Tea Party, how to defeat it, and the relationship of the Tea Party to racism.
Does he even understand it? or is just the nebulous enemy of his ideology?
He drew multiple comparisons between the Tea Party and White Nationalists and highlighted a study that shows Tea Party members are racist.
A study done by Progressives no doubt because that’s a very broad statement.
“There’s been a recent academic study, and I say academic because people here are, most of you are academic something-or-the-others, and there has been a longitudinal study that finds the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become,” he told the group.
And the longer you’re a Progressive Liberal the more Orwellian you become. The more you have a desire to rule over everyone in a very Socialist Control Freak manner. The more Progressive you get the more like the Thought Police you become. 🙂
Soon after, an attendee asked, “In your judgment would you say the Tea Party is a ‘hate group’?” Zeskind said that he doesn’t use the term, but argued the group is racist.
Gee, thanks for the backhanded compliment.
“I don’t ever use the term ‘hate group.’ I don’t use it, it is unscientific, imprecise and subject to all sorts of bullshit as far as I’m concerned,” Zeskind said.
Which is why MOST Progressive label anyone who is against them a “hate group”, but this guy is so superior he’s above all that. 🙂
“You know, I used to use it when I was in that universe of working for somebody else, and so-forth. I think you call it for what it is. Is it racist? Yes.”
It’s racist because anyone who disagrees with Homo Superior Liberalis is a racist and a bigot, full stop. At least that’s the way they view the world. If you disagree with them you must there be one because their exclusionary Thought Police Politically Correct mind is so vastly superior to the mere mortal that its hard for them to think down to your level.
During the 90-minute session, Zeskind also discussed what he believes is at the core of the Tea Party.
He has no FUCKING CLUE, but this should be ideologically entertaining. Its a bit like an Orwellian socialists trying to figure out what freedom is.
He talked about the term, dispossession, which he said is the notion that the status of white men has fallen.
So fundamentally, The Tea Party is made up of primarily White People, and since White People are all racists then the Tea Party is Racist.
Anyone want to point out the logic error? 🙂
“Now it just so happens that white men still have all the privileges that they have ever had. They are still richer than all bejesus, and they got the best health care, and so-forth and so-forth,” he said during the session.
I do? Where? Did I miss a memo or a secret handshake?
“But these people think that black people are running the United States of America.
Wow, you’re a twonk. I think the Socialist Democrats and The RINO Elitist Republicans are running the country.
But then again, on the Left, EVERYTHING comes down to race and gender division politics. They can’t conceive of the world in any other way.
Mind you, electing a “black man” was supposed to make this a post-racial world, at least that was the lie the Left told the White Guilt Crowd to get them to vote for the Socialist in the first place.
Then when he got elected, they made sure that anyone who disagreed with him or them was in fact a Racist by definition. Instead of “post racial” you have “nothing BUT racial”.
These people, these Tea Partiers think that black people are oppressing them as white people. These Tea Partiers think that they are a dispossessed majority.”
Half right. We are a dispossessed people, the one that thinks the Constitution has been shredded for Political Elitism and Political Correctness.
We Believe in the Constitution. The Left does not. The Republican Elites do not.
But since Progressive see EVERYTHING through the prism of race or gender we are the Anti-Christ because we are evil on both to them. We are the soldiers of their Anti-Christ.
The people who want Freedom & The Constitution back.
How evil is that! 🙂 Man, I just can’t contain my evil…
He said members of the Tea Party describe themselves as “Obama’s slaves,” and are fighting to keep their white privilege.
That undoubtedly is what THEY THINK we say, because it makes them feel good. The problem is, unlike groupthink Progressive Liberals the Tea Party is not a hive mind and it reminds me of a woman I knew in college.
I was in The College of Education at Arizona State in the early 1990s (long story) but I met this classmate who was absolutely convinced to her core that their was Satanism in schools and her job as a teacher was to root that out and destroy it.
Imagine what would happen if she didn’t find it?
Her entire reason for her self-worth and self-righteousness would be crushed. So, of course, she’ll find it. Even if its not there.
It must exist.
So the Tea Party and anyone who opposes a Progressive must therefore be eith a Racist or a Bigot or Both. End of story.
And they fundamentally don’t understand sarcasm.
“That’s the funny thing about white privilege. These folks want it, but they don’t think they have it anymore, since the white monopoly on the presidency was broke, it’s not their country,” Zeskind told the group. “They want their country back, to quote them.”
Don’t you love how everything fits very neatly into THEIR ideology. The perfect enemy of their State.
About 70 people attended the session and it eventually moved away from the Tea Party and focused on white people in general, and education, specifically.
Because education is political (as stated yesterday by one their own) and they must get the young before they are infected by “freedom” of thought.
Zeskind argued that parents who enroll their children in private schools “put their kids in little white academies,” and they enroll them in private education because they are racist.
After all, that WOULD haave to be the ONLY reason. The fact that public schools are crap and overrun by Progressive Liberals has nothing to do with it. 🙂
Zeskind also discussed his role as a peer-based organizer. He said the best way to organize is through building relationships.
And controlling people.
“I worked in heavy industry. You bet I organized on the job. I went to the shithouse with the guys…ate lunch with them, skipped work with them. Occasionally we got drunk on the job,” he said. “You had relationships, you were friends, you could talk about anything with the people that you knew.”
And naturally non-union people (which is the vast majority) never do that. They are all white elitist racists…
He argued it is important to organize against the Tea Party to defeat them.
Defeat The Constitution, you mean.
“I think standing up and saying, whatever organization or wherever you’re active at, having that organization stand up and say the Tea Party is a racist problem and we want to get rid of it. If you’ll stand up and say it like that, people will listen to you.”
Progressives will because they have a Hive Mind. Everyone else will think you’re a nutter! Which you are…
Zeskind encouraged everyone to check out more information on white supremacists and Tea Party members at the Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights (IREHR) website. IREHR aims “to continue examining racist, anti-Semitic, and far right social movements, analyzing their intersection with civil society and social policy, and to educate the public and assist in the protection and extension of human rights through organization and informed mobilization,” according to their website.
Blah, Blah, Blah, $3 words for “we’ll invesitgate anyone who disagrees with us and label them a racist or bigot and try to control the thoughts and minds of everyone so that Big Brother is supreme”. All Hail Big Brother.
He’s watching you…
The conference was paid for in part with taxpayer dollars. (Maciver institute)
They were too cheap to even pay for it themselves, they had to have other people pay for it. Typical Liberal.
PRESS RELEASES THREATS MADE AGAINST THE CITIZENS OF LA PLATA
On September 2, 2015 at approximately 4:43 P.M., the La Plata Police Department was alerted to a threat of violence against La Plata residents that was made on social media. The agency is working with allied law enforcement agencies to establish the creditability of the threat and the identity of the individual. The tweet read, “IM NOT GONNA STAND FOR THIS NO. MORE. TONIGHT WE PURGE! KILL ALL THE WHITE PPL IN THE TOWN OF LA PLATA”
More information will be forthcoming as it is available. The Department has added extra officers to patrol in an effort to protect the public.
The individual was identified as Carlos Anthony Hollins and was taken into custody. The culprit continued, however, to post on social media and defend his tweet, insisting that he was just “joking.” (townhall)
Of course he was…Just like Hillary was telling the truth about Benghazi.
Lighten up will you it’s not like the Far Left thinks all White people and all Cops are Racists! 🙂
