Biden Department of Ed. Official Thinks Democracy is Based on White Supremacy

“As a teacher, how many times have you been asked to uphold white supremacy through dominant-culture norms”

The left’s obsession with “white supremacy” is abnormal and unhealthy.

Biden DOE official: Democracy is based on white supremacy

One of the most common refrains heard from Democrats this past election was that democracy “is on the ballot” as Republicans literally are a threat to the American way of life.

But according to one Biden administration senior Department of Education official, the democracy we so value is actually a product of … white supremacy.

Fox News reports that on her now-protected Twitter account, DOE Office of Educational Technology Deputy Director Kristina Ishmael (pictured) wrote that “[Democracy is] also built on white supremacy, which I see perpetuated in education circles when BIPOC folx are being told they’re too negative by addressing real issues instead of superlatives.”

(Translation break: “BIPOC” = “black, Indigenous, people of color” and “folx” is a gender-neutral version of “folks.”)

Ishmael’s tweets also ripped American Evangelicals (“welcomed ‘hate’ and ‘white supremacy’ into its institution”), noted how she left a discussion because a white guy had “dominated” it, and how she was “tuning out” white people in general.

Ishmael also tweeted that the term “stakeholder” is “colonizer language to ID the white men who staked their claim to land” and that the “ideal” concept of (body) weight and shape is a “White supremacist ideal.”

From the story:

In another tweet, Ishmael seemingly cast doubt on whether White gay men deserved to be considered a marginalized category in curriculum.

“In most ‘inclusive’ materials,’ the most dominant folx are still represented in the marginalized group (e.g. white, cis, gay men). This does not include the nuance of this group,” she said.

In other instances, Ishmael blasted the “white perspective” in curriculum.

“[M]ost of my curriculum was written from a very narrow and white perspective,” she said.

“As a teacher, how many times have you been asked to uphold white supremacy through dominant-culture norms,” Ishmael said. …

Still waiting for the GOP to shutter the Dept of Ed. Mr. Reagan promised…!

If dominant-culture norms means white supremacy in America, doesn’t that mean Black supremacy in Africa, Yellow supremacy in East Asia etc?

Or does Ishmael hold that only Whites need to be marginalised and silenced?

If there is no longer any place for Whites in White (majority) nations …

“Biden DOE official: Democracy is based on white supremacy”
It definitely is, but only the way YOU guys do it.

“folx” is a gender-neutral version of “folks.”
Pardon me? What gender are “folks?”
This is as stupid as claiming that “thx” is a gender-neutral version of “thanks.”
It’s a silly chat abbreviation, for heaven’s sake.

“Ishmael’s tweets also ripped American Evangelicals (“welcomed ‘hate’ and ‘white supremacy’ into its institution”), noted how she left a discussion because a white guy had “dominated” it, and how she was “tuning out” white people in general.”
Good! Use your aggressive feelings, girl! Let the hate flow through you! And your journey towards the Dark Side will be complete!

Why shouldn’t there be dominant cultural norms established by the founding stock of the country? I don’t think we’ll see Ishmael complain about the oppression of “dominant cultural norms” in Zimbabwe or Botswana, or even Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

They changed the definition of “nuance” to “gotta throw in some extras for black people”.

Time to ask Congress to defund the Office of Educational Technology?
