Masterminds, Libertines, And Thugs
Yesterday, Jeff Goldstein published a post concerning the new diktats issued by the Massachusetts Board Of Education on the subject of the ‘gender identity’ of students and the correct behaviors expected [nay, demanded] of other students.
He linked a post by Todd Starnes of Fox News on the story [worth quoting at length so that you will get a good, solid taste of the horror of it all]:
Parents across Massachusetts are upset over new rules that would not only allow transgender students to use their restrooms of their choice – but would also punish students who refuse to affirm or support their transgender classmates.
Last week the Massachusetts Department of Education issued directives for handling transgender students – including allowing them to use the bathrooms of their choice or to play on sports teams that correspond to the gender with which they identify.
The 11-page directive also urged schools to eliminate gender-based clothing and gender-based activities – like having boys and girls line up separately to leave the classroom.
Schools will now be required to accept a student’s gender identity on face value.
“A student who says she is a girl and wishes to be regarded that way throughout the school day and throughout every, or almost every, other area of her life, should be respected and treated like a girl,” the guidelines stipulate.
According to the Dept. of Education, transgender students are those whose assigned birth sex does not match their “internalized sense of their gender.”
They said gender nonconforming students “range in the ways in which they identify as male, female, some combination of both, or neither.”
“The responsibility for determining a student’s gender identity rests with the student,” the guidelines dictate. “One’s gender identity is an innate, largely inflexible characteristic of each individual’s personality that is generally established by age four…As a result, the person best situated to determine a student’s gender identity is that student himself or herself.”
The new rules would also prevent teachers and administrators from telling parents with which gender their child identifies.
“School personnel should speak with the student first before discussing a student’s gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent or guardian,” the directive states.
The guidelines were issued at the request of the state board of education to help schools follow the 2011 anti-discrimination law protecting transgender students.
“These students, because of widespread misunderstanding and lack of knowledge about their lives, are at a higher risk for peer ostracism, victimization, and bullying, the document read.
The Massachusetts Family Institute denounced the new rules calling them a violation of privacy.
“Fundamentally, boys need to be using the boys’ room and girls need to be using the girls’ rooms, and we base that on their anatomical sex, not some sort of internalized gender identity,” said Andrew Beckwith, the institute’s general counsel.
Beckwith told Fox News the new policy has a “very broad standard that is ripe for abuse.”
“The policy allows students to have one gender identity at home and another at school,” he said. “And it refuses to let teachers and administrators tell parents what gender their child is at school.”
Another part of the directive that troubles parents deals with students who might feel comfortable having someone of the opposite sex in their locker room or bathroom.
The state takes those students to task – noting their discomfort “is not a reason to deny access to the transgender student.”
And any student who refuses to refer to a transgendered student by the name or sex they identify with could face punishment.
For example – a fifth grade girl might feel uncomfortable using the restroom if there is an eighth grade transgendered boy in the next stall.
Under the state guidelines, the girl would have no recourse, Beckwith said.
Beckwith and others say the education department is using a loophole in the anti-discrimination law to create a “stealth bathroom bill.”
“It’s affecting students as young as kindergarten,” he said.
The directive also calls on schools to implement gender neutral clothing rules.
“For example, some schools require students to wear gender-based garb for graduation or have gender-based dress codes for prom, special events and daily attire,” the directive states. “Schools should eliminate gendered policies and practices such as these.”
Jeff proposes a way to deal with such cretinism by use of ridicule that is well-worth implementing — do take the time to click here and read about it.
There are so many angles from which one could approach this horrific and outrageous situation, but I will confine myself to one aspect for now.
In the comments at Jeff’s place, bh remarks [emphasis mine]:
What all of us mean when we use “gender” is what was once simply “sex” (the noun, not the verb). One sexed a chicken, one didn’t gender a chicken.
Now, if we look up currently accepted definitions we see that “sex” is fixed (with our kind anyways) and biological and “gender” is fluid and kultural. To make these different things synonymous is their goal: intentional confusion over one of the most basic concepts known to life since we moved past asexual reproduction. Gender is not sex and male is not female. A is A. A is not B.
That’s the goal of the Leftist Masterminds — to sow Chaos in every nook and cranny of Society because it leads to instability. They want Western Culture to crash and smash into pieces so they can build their Heaven On Earth more easily.
And, because the Culture is so debased and deranged already, they find no shortage of willing and clueless Libertines to use to spread the Chaos.
This, I believe, is a key point that must be understood about Leftism and what kinds of people inhabit it’s dank caves if we are to be able to effectively wage war against this unWestern strain of thinking.
There are many shades of Leftism.
The Masterminds are those who concern themselves with the big picture and the overall goal, the end. The conclusion they seek is, quite literally, Heaven On Earth — their desire is to bring about Perfection, to rid Life of all of it’s messiness, all of it’s strife, all traces of individuality. Harmonious thinking and action is the only way what they believe to be the horrors of existence can be defeated. They believe that only the achievement of this end they seek will cause all suffering to cease. The Leftist Masterminds desire nothing less than a return to Eden.
Their fixation on this goal and their knowledge that Human Beings are instinctively resistant to such Harmony, leads them to conclude that their goal can only be achieved by re-engineering all Human Beings. Well, then, what to do, considering how stubborn their fellow citizens are? How do we get them to want to be re-engineering [ie: to 'love Big Brother']?
The Masterminds have concluded that this requires something akin [only akin in a loose sense] to what boot camp does: one has to break down the individual, strip him of who he is, and rebuild him in the Leftist Image.
How to do that?
The Masterminds of old long ago concluded that the answer was to reduce Western Society to rubble, to tear away everything we are familiar with, to destroy our faith in trust in tradition and custom, to crush our belief in Prudence and Morality. They realized that we would not conform to their Harmony unless we had nowhere else to go.
Hence the decision by the Leftist Masterminds to launch their long, destructive march through all of the institutions of The West [America was the biggest nut to crack because of our unique Nature, but the Masterminds were nothing if not determined to do it]. The sowing of Chaos was the means they realized they needed to implement if they were to have any chance of reaching their ‘glorious’ goal.
Being Masterminds, however, which means they, by definition, must be an Elite, a small group, the Leftist Masterminds needed help in their efforts.
There first alliances were with the criminally minded. These types were easy to recruit because they could be shown that working with the Masterminds would benefit them in the only way they cared about: materially. But, the Masterminds also realized that these criminals had a Nihilistic vein running through them that could be exploited — and exploit this they did.
But the Leftist Masterminds needed more ‘respectible’ people to spread their virus — criminals employ brute force which is quite the turn-off to most people.
So they sought out the Lost Souls — those who had lost faith, for whatever reasons, in God and were searching for a replacement to fill the aching void in their damaged souls. Their pool of these kind of people rose over the decades because of another successful offensive the Masterminds launched with the help of the ever-swelling pool of Fellow Travellers and Dupes: they killed God.
And, since a belief in the One God, is the basis for all Morality, this successful murder helped to further sow Chaos and open up the ever-yearning-for-meaning hearts and minds of people to the Left’s replacement religion: their Ideology, which, like the Jewish and Christian religions, offered the promise of a Kingdom Of Heaven. ‘But’, the Masterminds promised, ‘you wouldn’t have to wait until you died to enter Paradise’ — they promised it in the here-and-now, if, ‘gosh darn it, you just help us!’
And these Lost Souls joined.
To keep them happy, the Masterminds provided them with the rationale to engage in onanistic behaviors of the non-sexual and sexual kind. Being Nihilists — haters of their own lives — these Lost Souls easily joined a movement which allowed them to engage in whatever activities they wished to. All that the Leftist Masterminds required of them was they they spread the good news of the Libertinism. And being deep down revellers in their own misery, the Lost Souls took to the task with great enthusiasm because every miserable person loves to drag others down into their own wretched gutter so they don’t wallow alone.
When dealing with a Leftist, we need to suss-out what kind they are — Mastermind, thug, or Libertine — in order to be able to correctly choose the right weapons to defeat them.
The Battle Rages On…
