Baby Carriers and Racist Oppression

Moonbattery (a.k.a. political correctness, cultural Marxism, critical theory, progressivism, modern “liberalism”) may be the world’s first truly totalitarian ideology, in that absolutely nothing escapes it. There is no topic that information gatekeepers will not subvert into a denunciation of Caucasians and Western Civilization — not even baby carriers.

From Today’s Parent:

Modern baby carriers that we see and use today are based on traditional baby carriers that have been used all around the world for hundreds of thousands of years. …

This is why it’s so important to respect the cultures our babywearing knowledge comes from, as this ancestral practice existed long before it was popularized in the West. In fact, babywearing has often been denied to Indigenous and racialized parents and children through the process of colonization and assimilation. It was seen as “primitive,” less culturally acceptable or somehow lesser-than, since historically, European, British and white North American mothers typically used prams and strollers to carry their infants. …

As a babywearing educator working with new parents and baby-gear stores, I also emphasize how important it is to learn to pronounce the names of these carriers properly. When we mispronounce or shorten the names, we contribute to the “whitewashing” of babywearing culture, erasing the true origins and traditions.

Only a thought criminal would whitewash cloth baby wraps by not pronouncing “lappa” with a Nigerian accent.

This is only fair, since the rest of the world is always careful to use correct American pronunciation when culturally appropriating electricity, air travel, refrigeration, television, zippers, lightbulbs, et cetera.

Preachy moonbats are repellently obnoxious, yet they are able to bully the herd into conforming to their odious ideology because they are ubiquitous and relentless.

Climate warriors cringe at the words 'Vermont Christmas' -- and seek to replace it with 'climate vacation'

 

 

Ambitious Vermont climate warriors seek to eliminate Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays in schools, and replace them with “Climate Vacations” that will “prevent shopping stress and pollution from manufacturing merchandise.”

That's not a joke. They're serious and their proposal would also shift all students to a completely plant-based diet, regardless of the health threats and poor nutrition that this would inflict on Vermont children, and this doesn't even get into the matter of what the kids will actually eat.

The silliness about eliminating meat from human diets persists in agitators too ignorant of farming and nutrition to spare themselves this public embarrassment. But Vermont’s climate warrior class strives toward an even higher level of absurdity in the attempt to ban the two most prominent historical holidays in the American calendar, feigning a moral “climate cause” in what is really an open attack on Christianity. The new cult does not wish to have reminders of gratitude (Thanksgiving) or care for others (Christmas) persist in its government-controlled moral charge “...to get real about the absolutely most important thing in the world with the absolutely most important people in your world.”

An educational campaign for students to be more mindful of what they buy at Christmas, and what they eat for Thanksgiving -- appealing to personal responsibility in consumption -- might serve well enough. But these proposals go much further:

The proposed ballot would ask voters to make the climate crisis “the top priority” by becoming a carbon-neutral district by Jan. 1, 2025; immediately adopting a plant-based food system; devoting one school day each month to a Climate Emergency Day where education is focused solely on mitigating climate change and living with its consequences; immediately having one day each month for staff development on current climate emergency reports with a focus on how to present findings to students on Climate Emergency Days and creating climate action plans; and making climate costs a higher priority than financial costs.

Climate responses are dependent on “financial costs” -- as to feasibility, but also in that a people suffering economically (say, from massive job losses and spiking inflation) cannot allocate resources to climate remediation. What will be taught to Vermont’s students for a full day each month -- how to turn off the lights at night, take fewer showers, and stop buying junk food and climate-destroying tech gizmos? (That is, personal responsibility.) Or will they be taught that polluting, manufactured, regressive electric cars and solar panels will save the planet (when nothing could be more wrong)?

The truth of far-left motivations must be discerned from the blatant lies. Last summer, Vermont’s capital canceled Independence Day under the pretense of COVID…. then scheduled an African drumming exhibition in its stead. The pretense was COVID-19, but no one with a functional mind believes the City will ever acknowledge the Fourth of July again.…

The pathetic (and wildly unpopular) effort to ban Christian holidays in the name of saving the planet is equally disingenuous. There has been no discussion of banning fireworks displays for celebrations -- how many of these social justice climate warriors mow their lawns, or fly on vacations in polluting jets? If there were ever a group of naked emperors picking at the twigs in others’ eyes, this group takes the prize for most unclothed.

This unconscionable effort in Vermont’s schools arises from a partisan political ideology that is judgmental, unforgiving,
