Kyriarchy

Kyriarchy

This comment in response to the Joel’s post last night, Saturday Night Card Game (Color blindness is the new racism), is worth running on its own.

Sadly, the idea that being “colorblind” is racist has been around for decades now.  The far left believe that American society is intrinsically racist to the point that even the most innocuous thing perpetuates racism.

They believe that people must be “conscience” of race, because only then will they discover how everything about American culture and civilization is racist and evil.  The same applies to sexual orientation and to gender and/or one’s biological sex.

They believe that straights, whites, and males are “privileged” and that unless American society is destroyed and rebuilt with “social justice” in mind, then those straight white males will ALWAYS oppress everyone else, even if they don’t actually treat people unequally or think of race at all.

They further believe in “kyriarchy.”  This is the supposed way straight white males oppress people: Through interlocking hierarchies. For example, if a straight black man doesn’t like gay people, that is just an example of the “evil American culture” getting one disadvantages group to oppress another such group.  Thus, the left believes the only way to smash the “kyriarchy” is to reject all “anglo-normative,” “andro-normative,” and “hetero-normative” values and replace it with a “non-hierarchical” system based on “social justice.”

They really and truly believe this.  They taught it in colleges decades ago, and now they are trying to get it to go mainstream.

This will not end well…

This isn’t the old complaint about the patriarchy, it’s conspiracy theory 101:

Kyriarchy – a neologism coined by Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza and derived from the Greek words for “lord” or “master” (kyrios) and “to rule or dominate” (archein) which seeks to redefine the analytic category of patriarchy in terms of multiplicative intersecting structures of domination…Kyriarchy is best theorized as a complex pyramidal system of intersecting multiplicative social structures of superordination and subordination, of ruling and oppression.

The craziest theories become the norm, students are trained in them, anyone who opposes them is labeled (take your pick, racist, homophobic, etc.), and they become the standard.

You simply cannot imagine what goes on.  And how well it has worked.

There really is no living with someone who is that hate-twisted and…just GONE.

Common ground with that person simply does not exist. I’m perfectly happy for them to live…somewhere else, far from me our mine.

The ‘kyriarchy’ is of coure a leftist construct. Well, back atcha, lefties. The meme for lefty rulers is that democracy must be perverted to ‘social democracy’, to prevent hoi polloi from electing a wrong leader. ‘Social democracy’ has a built-in aristocracy, in which the loftiest intellectuals with the biggest mouths form a Politburo, who determine what’s the greatest good for the greatest number, and fix their party ‘elections’ to ensure that one of their alpha-members sits at the top.

If that isn’t a kyriarchy, what is?

Odd, just as I awoke this morning I imagined/dreamed the people of the world looking up in a baffled attitude and saying America committed suicide, and it was their educators who taught them to do it.

Fits in perfectly with what I attempted to articulate in the thread about the horror story in CT

This is the nonsense that goes in the “academy” to which you send your* sons and daughters (hope those sexist words won’t get me into too much dutch (oh-oh, maybe that word might get me into racist trouble with the Dutch)) at the enormously high price of 50-60K per year. [*And I probably should be raked over coals for using the term “your” sons and daughters as “your” implies ownership.]

All those truth-in-[labeling/lending/advertising-unit pricing and so forth] laws should apply to colleges. If they did, you as the parent (there I go again with a sexist/patriarchal term) would be told something like this. “Thank you for sending Child A to Whacked-Out U where we will be doing our level-headed best to deprogram him/her [these too are probably no-no terms] from all that input and so-called moral guidance which you have supplied over the last 18 years. As a further note, the Bursar’s Office requests that all future payments be made with certified checks.”

Someone needs to make a scorecard, to keep up with all these leftist lunacies.

My mother and I had a discussion about volunteers. We couldn’t help but notice that the majority of the men willing to do dangerous work as firemen, rebuilding efforts in damaged communities and rescue work during / after a disaster are white men.

I’m not saying that minority men won’t do it if given a chance, Latino men do appear to step up (as law enforcement). Yet, I remember the events surrounding Katrina, and it was so noticeable that most of the helpless were black women and children. Hardly any able bodied men in sight. And the majority of those coming to rescue them were white men. 9/11, I suspect, was no different when it came to heroism.

Have all of these people ever asked themselves what shape the country would be in if white guys didn’t dare to engage themselves in dangerous work to heroically save others? There is no greater example of selflessness and being non-racist than to put one’s life on the line for other human beings.

Can any of the critics say the same?

…and before anyone gets confused, I am a black woman….

The prof said, “The craziest theories become the norm, students are trained in them, anyone who opposes them is labeled (take your pick, racist, homophobic, etc.), and they become the standard.

You simply cannot imagine what goes on. And how well it has worked.”

But I do know how well that it has worked… Just look at the results of the November election!

I am a 52 year old white male. I grew up attending an inner city school in San Francisco with a polyglot student body – every imaginable race and country of origin. My core group consisted of a black male who lived in public housing and went on to be an MD. An italian american who lived with his mother and grandfather and went on to be self-supporting at a variety of jobs. And a japanese-hawaiian musician who went on to teach this type of crap at Columbia University.

I am at a complete loss for an explanation of how he evolved to that. I can see where some of the threads came from but…It is so apart from how I see the world functioning that we can literally find no common ground now. We can discuss the SF Giants world series. But any real discussion of cause and effect in the world and it is like we come from different planets and one of them doesn’t have gravity.

Observing Obama’s use of Susan Rice as a human shield, the race card also provides immunity the elite. As our Libyan ambassador was disarmed and our military stood down, Rice prepared to condemn free speech in America as causal in the avoidable murders. A black female Democrat as front, has triple protection from accusation of dereliction of duty.

America should be aware that every word from Rice was (apparently) a scripted diversion, a bold faced political lie, repeated by our president to the U.N. But with the protective armor of gender, race, and party, the complicit media aligns to malign as racist, any that reveal the duplicity.

So outing “deep cover” Valerie Plame is treason. But Rice can boldly lie about a terrorist attack, and redirect the emotion to an assault on our free speech. Ordained with the robe of Democrat Party, the scepter of womanhood, and the royal crown of AFRICAN americanism, Rice is untouchable in PC world.

Meanwhile the citizenry bark and drool to Big Media’s Pavlovian cues, hating on command. “Dog whistles” indeed.

Our naturally brown-skinned college-age daughter, who knows her ample melanin acts as an unfair and unearned shield against academia types’ unfair white-guilt clichés says she feels sorry for her white male cousin (Luke’s nephew, and one of the sweetest human beings alive) who dropped out of college because the oppressive anti-white male PC BS was too much for him to put up with.

“Kyriarchy – a neologism…which seeks to redefine the analytic category of patriarchy in terms of multiplicative intersecting structures of domination…best theorized as a complex pyramidal system of intersecting multiplicative social structures of superordination and subordination, of ruling and oppression.”

Conspiracy theory 101? Please, that’s from BS 401. No one really knows what that means, which is, of course, wherein its value lies.

And with the Long March through the educational institutions complete and students forcefully indoctrinated with pernicious propaganda like Kyriarchy…what are the next steps? How to reverse that march and recover the institutions? What tactic chosen has to be as long-term and as ruthless as the tactics used to take the institutions over.

Prejudice is manufactured through political, economic, and social opportunity. It is motivated by dreams of instant gratification. It progresses through denigration of individual dignity and devaluation of human life.

Kyriarchy.

Oh dear . If the Leftover English working class girls hear that pronounced with a soft ch then there will be a stream of little Kiriashie-s popping up.

I dread to think what the American babbymommas will do to it. Kiriasha will not be enough. There will be Kiriashashta soon enough.

Here is hoping the Y puts them off.

Sadly, with certain groups becoming supersensitive “princesses and the pea” with regards to racism, our melting pot has become a giant buffet of self segregating racial groups.
