It's everywhere

The following article was brought to my attention thanks to blogger Matt:
University to students: 'All whites are racist'
A mandatory University of Delaware program requires residence hall students to acknowledge that "all whites are racist" and offers them "treatment" for any incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering the school, according to a civil rights group.''
The civil rights group quoted in the article is the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or (FIRE), and their news release on the story is here:
Referring to the mandatory re-education program, the 'residence life education program', FIRE says
The University of Delaware�s residence life education program is a grave intrusion into students� private beliefs," FIRE President Greg Lukianoff said. "The university has decided that it is not enough to expose its students to the values it considers important; instead, it must coerce its students into accepting those values as their own. At a public university like Delaware, this is both unconscionable and unconstitutional."
The university�s views are forced on students through a comprehensive manipulation of the residence hall environment, from mandatory training sessions to "sustainability" door decorations. Students living in the university�s eight housing complexes are required to attend training sessions, floor meetings, and one-on-one meetings with their Resident Assistants (RAs). The RAs who facilitate these meetings have received their own intensive training from the university, including a "diversity facilitation training" session at which RAs were taught, among other things, that "[a] racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality."
I wonder if some thought I was exaggerating for rhetorical effect when I said at various times. that the PC commissars maintain that 'all whites are racists', with no exceptions. The quote above spells it out: all those of European descent, regardless of 'class, gender, religion, culture, or sexuality' are racists. And since these same leftists believe that to be a 'racist' is to be a vile person, worthy of losing the right to free speech, or livelihood, this kind of blanket condemnation should be distressing to all European-descended people.
The methods used are totalitarian:
At various points in the program, students are also pressured or even required to take actions that outwardly indicate their agreement with the university�s ideology, regardless of their personal beliefs. Such actions include displaying specific door decorations, committing to reduce their ecological footprint by at least 20%, taking action by advocating for an "oppressed" social group, and taking action by advocating for a "sustainable world."
In the Office of Residence Life�s internal materials, these programs are described using the harrowing language of ideological reeducation. In documents relating to the assessment of student learning, for example, the residence hall lesson plans are referred to as "treatments."
In the old Soviet Union, we know that people who were political dissenters were often diagnosed as mentally ill and sent off to re-education camps. There have been 'experts' cited in recent years who have declared 'racism' to be a mental disorder. Can we see where this is going?
The WorldNetDaily article gives us more details on the program:
...people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination�.'"
The education program also notes that "reverse racism" is "a term created and used by white people to deny their white privilege." And "a non-racist" is called "a non-term," because, the program explains, "The term was created by whites to deny responsibility for systemic racism, to maintain an aura of innocence in the face of racial oppression, and to shift the responsibility for that oppression from whites to people of color (called 'blaming the victim')."
[Emphasis mine]
So it's hopeless to protest your innocence; you are guilty by virtue of your genetics, and there is no defense, no appeal. Guilty.
In googling the phrase 'all racists' I came across a link to some kind of college organization against 'racism'.
I would link to it, but I personally don't want the people who created the site following the link to my blog and leaving their droppings in my comment section. But here is an example of their 'solutions' with the title 'A Final Solution to the Problem of Racism in America. They call racism a 'cancer' and say that it is everywhere in America, and there is no escape. So the solutions might be
* Teach them to read.
* Make them travel. Mark Twain said, "Travel cures prejudice." Maybe getting them out of those little white towns and trailer parks would do them some good.
* Deport them to the Caucasus mountains.
* Force them to take a bath every day until they renounce racism.
* Put them on an island. Then they could be happy hating each other forever.
* Require them to attend college classes at state universities -- their failures will instill humility since non-whites will always outperform them.
* Euthenize [sic] all mentally deficient racists (per their own Nazi doctrine) -- this will eliminate over half of them.
* Lock them in a football stadium with lots of machine guns and alcohol.
* Send the Aryans back to India.
* Put them in the boxing ring and let them prove their superiority over blacks.
* Sterilize all racists them so they don't breed back into the population and pollute the human gene pool.
* Fine their mothers for littering society with white trash. If their fathers can be identified and caught, jail them.
* Make them take an IQ test and euthenize [sic] those who flunk.
* Make them wear yellow swastikas on their clothes, confiscate their property, and confine them to walled-in ghettoes or send them to work camps.
* Make them slaves for 400 years so that they understand the evil that they have done.''
All the spelling and grammar errors are left as is, which is a good illustration of the mentality of these people.
If these 'students' who cannot spell and write (or think) are white, they are a sorry example of white self-racism, and if they are 'diverse' which they probably are, since colleges worship diversity above all else, then they are proof that European-descended people are not the only 'racists'. And to think: the people who wrote the above will likely be 'leaders' of tomorrow, armed with their bogus college degrees.
And here, from Blogger News Network, commentary on a CNN poll which showed that 'Americans all Racists'
From the CNN story:
University of Connecticut professor Jack Dovidio, who has researched racism for more than 30 years, estimates up to 80 percent of white Americans have racist feelings they may not even recognize.
"We�ve reached a point that racism is like a virus that has mutated into a new form that we don�t recognize," Dovidio said.
He added that 21st-century racism is different from that of the past.
"Contemporary racism is not conscious, and it is not accompanied by dislike, so it gets expressed in indirect, subtle ways," he said.
That "stealth" discrimination reveals itself in many different situations. ''

We all know this rhetoric; we've been subjected to it non-stop for the last 40 or 45 years. You who are younger are lucky; you have not heard it as many times as some of us have. And unfortunately those who have grown up under the politically correct regime know no other way of thinking, unless somehow they have been kept out of the mainstream or raised by dissenting parents who don't conform to the orthodoxy.
And how do we have a dialogue with people who think we are all racist, and hence evil? The answer: we don't. It doesn't happen. The only thing the other side has to contribute to any debate is slanders, insults, and hatred masquerading as anti-hate zeal.
I've mentioned before that I have an ultra-liberal friend, with whom I used to be quite close, and that since we've grown apart politically, our friendship has suffered. Ideally, among good friends, we should be able to discuss these things honestly and reach some understanding, but it doesn't happen. We tend to avoid the subjects on which we disagree vehemently, and I suspect my friend thinks I have become deluded and that I will come around to the correct way of thinking eventually.
But when I have brought up issues like this, thinking that, as a reasonable person, an educated person, my friend should be able to discuss things reasonably, she reacts irrationally. If I point out a story like this one, in which leftism is showing its derangement and totalitarianism, she merely rationalizes it away. Oh, it's just a few people in some obscure place who got carried away; they aren't typical of liberals or leftists. They're just zealots, most liberals don't think like that. Or: 'the right-wing media exaggerates things like that.'
Actually I see the same kinds of rationalizations among the neocons; when faced with a story that conflicts with their programming, they dismiss it as 'the lamestream media lying again.'
So what do we do, if we can't dialogue with these people on the left?
In my ideal universe, we'd be able to separate from them; the divisions between us and them are becoming so profound, and there is no good faith left, nothing much on which we can agree, that separation is the only real answer. Some will tell me I am being unrealistic, but is it realistic to hope we can live in harmony with people who insist we are 'evil racists' and who will do all they can to discredit us and marginalize us, and would send our dissenting young people off to be 're-educated'?
And here's a modest proposal: since we majority Americans have been declared to be universally racist, it might be sensible for those who are immigrating here to seek a destination country which is racism-free, such as another third-world country, because we are told that non-whites cannot be racists; only whites can be. So white countries should be ostracized by all the 'people of color.' Maybe that would "learn" us.
I really don't know what the answer is, but the answer, if any, is surely NOT for us to start denying, or becoming defensive, or attempting to prove how non-racist we are, as many on the mainstream 'right' love to do, and above all, the answer is NOT to go looking under the bed for 'racists' and 'bigots' and expelling them from our midst. Anybody who does that has in essence bought into the beliefs of the left, and has taken on the yoke of political correctness. Anybody who does that is gone over to the other side, whether they realize it or not.
At the very minimum, those of us with college-age sons and daughters should keep them away from these totalitarian campuses, but the trouble is, almost all colleges are infected with leftism, and the pressure to conform is considerable. I suppose if we bring up our children to be independent-minded, with sound values and principles, they might not fall prey to the ideas that are ubiquitous in our institutions of 'higher learning.' But I think it's the exceptional young person who is not swayed by all the leftist propaganda.
But one consolation in this 'we are all racists' nonsense is: if we are all 'racists' then racism is normal. If everybody has a certain innate characteristic, then that characteristic is the norm.
If we are all racists, then the word has no real meaning. How can something which is universal (as the left claims) be worthy of condemnation? Can you re-make human nature, with your sinister 're-education' programs and your witch-hunts?
If gays can claim the 'right' to their sexual preferences because it's inborn (so they claim) then why can't racists claim the right to be as they are, since it's evidently natural?
And one more question: how can purges against 'racists' on these blogs and forums be instituted, if everybody of European descent is racist? If racism disqualifies you from the right to free speech, and if all Europeans are racists, then no European-descended person has a right to freedom of expression. Ban us all. We'd even have to ban ourselves. Just give up and turn ourselves in for re-education.
I still maintain, however, that if we dissented en masse, refusing to go along with the totalitarian left's dictates, how can they enforce their will on the majority of us? It is really only a fairly small percentage of the actual population who impose this kind of nonsense on us; they are in the main a lot of soft, passive-aggressive people who use verbal intimidation and intellectual coercion. If we refuse to go along, what can they do, realistically, to us? They have as much power as we are willing to give them, and no more.
