My wife likes to use a Cantonese expression: "One eye open, one eye closed," meaning you are aware that something is true but pretend it isn't for the sake of appearances and to avoid conflict. So it is for ideologically-inspired antisemitism on the left. https://quillette.com/2021/09/17/how-social-justice-extremists-spawned-a-generation-of-progressive-antisemites/

Caption from Chicago Daily News (1952):

"Sleepy Explorers: Tuckered out alter exploring Chicago via a midnight elevated train ride, five-year-old James Davis fell asleep in a police station while his pal Ronald Sullivan, 8, kept a drowsy watch. (Con't, 1/2)

In this week's podcast, @hold_mydrink and @BlogUnwoke spoke with @TheFIREorg's Bonnie Snyder about ideological indoctrination in K-12 education and her new book Undoctrinate.

"Demand for social justice rhetoric—esp. involving black pain & trauma—leads to a supply of victimhood narratives. The conditions for the victimhood economy are in place, & some black people benefit from it, as do white antiracists, as it legitimates them as ‘the good guys’." 1/2

"I never felt 'oppressed.' This idea that I’m oppressed is one of the most backward ideas I've encountered. At best, it’s an overdramatization of inequalities ever-present in human civilization."

New post in the Journal of Free Black Thought:

"There's justice and then there’s the victimhood economy. These two models have different motives."

My latest with @JeffreyASnyder: "By contributing to a misguided safety-&-security model of education, trigger warnings ultimately deprive all students of the most powerful learning opportunities." cc: @AdamMGrant @emzanotti @jonathans_tobin @DebMashek

First black woman to enlist in the US Army:

Cathay Williams (1844–1893) posed as a man, William Cathay, to enlist. *May* have been in Civil War. Definitely active as a Buffalo Soldier 1866-1868 in the 38th US Infantry Regiment.

She was born in slavery.

In the final teaser for this week's @hold_mydrink + @Counter_Weight_ pod, @TheFIREorg's Bonnie Snyder tells us one of the problems with some educators is that they are working backwards from conclusions instead of encouraging open inquiry.
w/ @DavidLBernstein @truth_inbetween

Increasingly, students who disagree with the CSJ narrative are likely to feel isolated from their lecturers and classmates. If you're experiencing this problem and you feel alone, check out our latest video: https://youtu.be/5-GIHMfk91U

A true comic and artist unencumbered by orthodoxy of any kind. A unique voice that will be sorely missed, not the least because we need all the help we can get to save Western culture from the grip of woke. #NormMacdonald #freethinkingartists #Newtown

Performers and portrayers (some of whom actual aristocrats), aided by their consorting politician friends, embark on an orgiastic virtue-signaling fest telling the rest of us what to think/do/feel. True decadence and a sign that Western culture is declining fast.

Happy book release day to @TheFIREorg's Bonnie Snyder! Grab a drink and join us on Thurs for our podcast with Bonnie on how to Undoctrinate the classroom.

In the 2nd teaser for this week's @hold_mydrink + @Counter_Weight_ pod, @TheFIREorg's Bonnie Snyder notices a dispiriting trend of lying just to go along to get along. Stay tuned!
