DeSamtis IS REMOVING Free Speech from Universities because the only "diversity" they need is white


https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/24/ron-desantis-florida-governor-bill-indoctrination-colleges

The new law requires colleges and universities to conduct an annual survey measuring “intellectual freedom and viewpoint diversity” on their campuses. It’s an effort to gauge “the extent to which competing ideas and perspectives are presented”, as well as how free students, faculty and staff feel “to express their beliefs and viewpoints”, the bill says.

....


But critics fear the assessment will instead end up intimidating teachers, chilling free speech and disproportionately representing the perspectives of those who feel aggrieved. They are also concerned the data could be wielded to punish faculty or universities.

At DeSantis’s behest, Florida’s board of education also recently banned educators from teaching critical race theory, which analyzes racism as a systemic, persistent part of American life and has been weaponized by Republicans who say teaching about oppression in this form is divisive. The board similarly barred materials connected to the New York Times’s 1619 Project, a widely lauded effort that focuses on slavery’s consequences as well as Black Americans’ contributions.

Guess I might as well leave DU again

I will still be out there doing the best I can in whatever way I can.

But a lot of these discussions go in circles.

If you want to understand, they say look it up.

If you want to be understood, they say it isn't about you.

Well if you want my help but you can't tell me WTF you want, specifically, then it's stupid to have the conversation.

If I have to figure it out on my own, I will and peace to y'all.

I'd take a bullet for you but I damn sure can't handle these ridiculous conversations any more.

Peace Out.

Very interesting article about how Anti-Racist Activism can have a backlash on Interracial Couples

I know I personally look at the idea of "white" domination as more of something that is under the surface culturally and that if you are NOT racist, you don't dig in that toolbox.

Sometimes being white we have learned things unintentionally that need to be unlearned also, but I agree that to assume all other races are "victims" isn't appropriately respectful or helpful.

To acknowledge actual equality is to SEE their power as valid whether everyone else acknowledges it or not.

What do people here think of the article below?

It's not due to any racist malintent that I worry these crucial gains are being undermined. Quite the opposite in fact. In 2020, American had a great racial awakening, after George Floyd's horrifying murder was caught on tape. More and more people started to confront racism, which was of course a very positive change. Yet as the movement progressed, the necessary correction began to take a troubling turn.

I learned that some activists claim all white people are oppressors, while people of other racial groups are oppressed victims. I learned that they think that a racial power dynamic exists in every interaction between white and nonwhite people, and thus oppression is present in every activity of life. Acknowledging and fighting against white people's oppressive role, I learned, is essential for "anti-racism." And refusing to acknowledge it is "White Fragility."

As the people around me became more deeply mired in this worldview, I wondered, where does interracial marriage belong in these narratives? Why would oppressed persons want to marry oppressors? And if these activists are right, wouldn't we have to conclude that no authentic relationship could exist between white and nonwhite people?

So how does Biden's approval so far compare to whathisface?

It's probably an easy confusion... Dump sees bigger numbers and thinks he's winning, but the Disapproval is bigger than Biden's approval. That's apples and kumquats, dude.

Ever heard of Scopolamine being used for interrogations? IE Guantanamo Bay??



SCARY THOUGHT.... toward end of second *USH there were pushes for a drug to make people more susceptible to suggestion...

THERE IS ONE OUT THERE... called Devil Breath (aka-scopolamine)

https://www.thecabinchiangmai.com/blog/colombian-devil-breath-world-scariest-drug-kills-your-free-will/


Possibly a product of Nightshade... it's been used in various strengths to combat sea sickness, as a TRUTH SERUM and can ZOMBIFY a person (street drug is called Devil's Breath.)

IN ALL THESE MASS RALLIES... what if this drug were pumped out into the crowd?


WOULD it be possible to find it in the blood stream?


How long does Devil's Breath stay in your system?

It's also nearly impossible to detect, as it's only in your bloodstream for four hours. So by the time you emerge from your zombie state and go to a hospital, the remnants are gone.

I FEEL LIKE A CONSPIRACY NUT someone tell me this IS NOT possible.



BUT it would explain why seemingly normal people are CONVINCED an insane man is perfectly right about everything and fit to be President.

Not the ONLY explanation, but IF in the next violent wave, and it's happening in August...

IF WE TEST THE INSURRECTIONISTS for Scopolamine within 4 hours of the start of the violence AND it is found in their systems, that would be proof of intentionally INCITING (DRIVING) a group to violence against the government.
