Middlebury College Hosts Event to ‘Demilitarize White Bodies’ to Make Them ‘Human’

“Evidence that whiteness is always weaponized is everywhere”

Middlebury College is the school where a mob of students sent a professor to the emergency room a few years ago. Is there something in the water in Vermont?

Campus Reform reports:

Middlebury College promotes ‘demilitarization of White bodies’ so that they ‘might become human’

Middlebury College in Vermont hosted a virtual event in January in which participants discussed how “demilitarizing White bodies” will make them “become human.”

“Evidence that whiteness is always weaponized is everywhere,” an advertisement for the event on the college’s website said.

“The August 2017 Charlottesville, VA, march; dog walker Amy Cooper threatening to call the police on birdwatcher Christian Cooper in New York City’s Central Park; US Capitol Police officers taking selfies with armed rioters and Richard Barnett sitting at the desk of the Speaker of the House of Representatives are just a few examples,” it continued, “Whiteness must be demilitarized so that bodies designated as ‘White’ might become human.”

Titled “Middlebury’s Opportunity to Facilitate the Demilitarization of White Bodies,” the event featured remarks by Associate Professor of Education Studies Jonathan Miller-Lane and was sponsored by the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs’ Program on Anti-Racist Theory and Action Around the Globe.

At Middlebury, Miller-Lane teaches a course titled, “Social Justice and Evolutionary Spirituality,” where students learn “whether we can create intellectually dynamic spaces of regeneration and renewal, using Zoom, while enrolled at an historically White supremacist institution.”

No. So you should immediately drop out.

This is idiocy on a platter.

This is a far cry from when the biggest contention when I was in college was, “It’s a Black Thing, You Wouldn’t Understand.”

participants discussed how “demilitarizing White bodies” will make them “become human.”

Dehumanizing rhetoric: whites aren’t human until they’ve been put through the Left’s struggle sessions.

Why isn’t this considered hate speech?

    Because hate speech can only come from people the left doesn’t like. Duh.

      Hate speech is free speech.
      Hate speech is protected by the First Amendment.
      Speech that offends no one NEEDS no protection.
      Concede any of these points even once, and they win.

“so they might become human” ??

If someone is looking for a definition of “hate speech,” this is pretty good one. This is a college professor explicitly suggesting that people, on the basis of skin color, are not at this time “human” ?? Really? Can I take that lawsuit?

I’m sure this is a blatant violation of Federal Title Who-gives-a-s*t-anymore.

And every and all government back student loan program, and you will see nonsense like this and people like this disappear from college campuses within a week.

“Associate Professor of Education Studies Jonathan Miller-Lane” organizing this struggle session. There’s a pattern in there. University schools of education showing up again and again in this hate-fueled travesty. They are breeding grounds of much of the hate and intolerance infesting America.

Can anybody explain to me the “white bodies”/”black and brown bodies” phrases the left is so enamored of? It’s dehumanizing, doesn’t increase the explanatory power of anything, and quite frankly has no obvious purpose.

    They can’t say men, because that’s sexist. They can’t say men and women, because that excludes the other 55 Heinz genders. They can’t say people, because that marginalizes… well, ask one of them, I’m positive they will come up with some infinitesimal group of freaks it marginalizes. So now it’s bodies.

    Leftists keep changing the map in hopes of correcting the problems with the territory. They go through labeling terms like Kleenex out of a box, and for the same reason. Once the brand new word has had time to soak up the miasma of the underlying concept, it’s treyf, never to be used again, and a new word is designated to be sullied. Crippled, disabled, handicapped, handicapable, challenged. Pervert, sodomite, queer, gay. Negro, colored person, black, Afro-American, black, African-American, Black, people of color. Bum, socialist, communist, progressive.

What does that even mean–to demilitarize white bodies to render them human? I swear I can’t understand most of this stuff anymore.
