Math is RAAAAACIST!

Saw this today from Zendo Deb.

File this under Stuck on Stoopit!

They would love to outlaw math. TRENDING: Educators work to combat racism, whiteness in math.

Whiteness in math? Math is math. 2+2=4. Simple, but not to the left. Because RAAAAACISM!

“Teaching math for social justice – this paper shares the process of analyzing school math curriculum as an entryway to engage elementary age students’ awareness around the hidden curriculum, transphobia, and genderism,” Yeh has shared.

An entryway to engage students? No, indoctrinate students is more the purpose. More here at Clayton Cramer

“Math equity” doesn’t mean 1 + 1 = 2.

The term refers to the growing insistence among educators that teaching math in the classroom comes with some inherently biased methodology that must be addressed.
Proponents of “math equity” also stress the importance of social justice issues such as race, diversity and gender in math education — a trend that’s catching on.

More professors and educators are tweeting under the hashtag #MathEquity to share strategies on the topic, and webinars and other pedagogical sessions on it abound.
“Equity-based mathematics teaching requires more than implementing new curriculum or using specific practices because it involves taking a stand for what is right,” the website for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics states.

“It requires mathematics teachers to reflect on their own identity, positions, and beliefs in regards to racist and sorting-based mechanisms. It involves noticing students, learning about the worlds they live in, and building mathematics that comes from these worlds. And finally, it involves engaging other educators in partnerships to build equity-oriented communities.”

Unbelievable! Clayton also posts this video, which fits the stupidity of the left

You don’t have to be a moron to serve on the Berkeley City Council…………

Oh wait, apparently being a moron is a prerequisite 

BERKELEY, Calif. — Berkeley, California, has adopted an ordinance to replace some terms with gender-neutral words in the city code.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Wednesday that “she” and “he” will be replaced by “they.” The words “manpower” and “manhole” will become “workforce” and “maintenance hole.”

The City Council on Tuesday unanimously passed the measure to replace more than two dozen commonly used terms. There will be no more “craftsmen” in city code, only “craftspeople” or “artisans.”

Good freaking grief! manholes are now maintenance holes? And what, that ends crime? Poverty? No, it does nothing but make idiots feel better Idiots like Rigel Robinson. Rigel, what sick bastard names their kid Rigel?

Name: Rigel Robinson, 22, student government officer (District 7)

What is the main reason you are running? Berkeley needs bold, progressive leadership to tackle our most pressing issues. Whoever is elected to represent District 7 will need to balance the needs of the city and the campus, students and neighbors. I’m running for City Council because I have been doing exactly that. During my four years at the University of California, Berkeley, I’ve been fighting to elevate student narratives at every level of government — and today, I’m running for Berkeley City Council because it’s time for students to have a seat at the table.

Blah, blah, blah Here is more nonsense from Rigel, and other assorted knuckle draggers who have no clue

In recent weeks, the League of Women Voters of Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville got all the Berkeley City Council candidates onstage to answer questions in a speedy round-robin. For District 7, that meant Ces Rosales, Rigel Robinson and Aidan Hill were on the mic. Notably missing from the stage was sitting District 7 Councilman Kriss Worthington, who is stepping down from the job after more than two decades, leaving an open seat.

Candidates each had one minute to answer questions on a range of topics, from housing and crime to homelessness and racial equity. The event took place at Berkeley City College on Sept. 19.

The first question for the group focused on public safety, and what the candidates might do to address rising crime in Berkeley.

Ok, the question is how to reduce crime. So, how would these mental midgets respond?

Hill pledged, first and foremost, to “make sure that everyone in our city has adequate nutrition,” including plant-based diets and access to water. Hill said Berkeley needs to ensure that the city isn’t simply criminalizing the poorest and most at-risk. Hill said tiny houses and other pathways to housing would be potential solutions to the question of rising crime. The city’s approach to policing — and institutions “that profit off of its criminalization” — must also be rethought, Hill added.

Soooo, give criminals water and a plant-based diet? Then give them tiny houses? And, of course blame police for like enforcing laws! Then there is this nugget of “brilliance”

Robinson said expanding late-night transit options and improving lighting would help people in the neighborhood. He said he’d like to push PG&E to do more with lighting, and called it “unacceptable” that students are feeling increasingly unsafe — and unwilling — to walk between home and campus.

Hmmm, maybe it is the criminals who make the students feel “unsafe”? Maybe enforcing laws would help get stop the criminals?

Charles Blow is your Marxist Moron of the Day

Diogenes gives us a peek of Blow’s idiocy

RS -Yes, the New York Times Charles Blow really said it. He tweeted, “Let this sink in: There are tanks in the nation’s capital and concentration camps at its border. The drift to [sic] toward the unimaginable is unmistakable.”

What is it exactly about patriotic displays that causes the left to completely lose all sense? The mere sight of a flag to a liberal has become the equivalent of showing a cross to a Satanist or kryptonite to Superman. And the most ironic thing about it is that liberals are running headlong toward a socialist ideology which actually does have the potential to rob them of their freedom.

It’s dangerous when “opinion leaders” such as Charles Blow and AOC make remarks like this. Before long, these phrases, outrageous as they are, will be picked up by other political commentators and politicians and will soon become part of normal conversation, just as terms like “manufactured crisis” have. The left has become increasingly anti-American and they no longer even try to hide it.

Blow is sincerely stupid, yet, he has been given high profile column space at the New York Times. The thing is, I think lots of leftists parrot this crap because it will get them on TV, or because they think they are supposed to say moronic things. Others, simply hate America because they are collectivists and therefore hate individualism, which America is founded on. Blow actually believes racism is everywhere, he is a sad, paranoid little man

And you wonder why I call it Marxifonia?

There the Marxists running the Golden State go again

California lawmakers released a final draft of the state’s 2020 budget late Sunday evening that would expand health care to illegal immigrants and cost taxpayers nearly $100 million per year.

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom reached an agreement with Democrats in the state legislature to become the first state in the nation to provide full health care benefits to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants.

As part of a larger $213 billion budget, low-income illegal immigrants under the age of 26 will be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, reported The Sacramento Bee. Under the agreement, approximately 90,000 new individuals would qualify with an estimate price tag of $98 million annually.

And, who will bear the brunt of this……………. Emphasis mine

California will begin taxing residents who don’t have health insurance in order to help ease the program’s financial burden, creating an individual-mandate penalty.Initially implemented under the Obama administration to help pay for the federal Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as Obamacare, Republicans rolled back the federal individual-mandate penalty in 2017.

Yep, they just keep digging. Maybe one day they will become Venezufornia

Boy, the Leftists really hate Chick-fil-A

Here the whiners go again

The student government at a Texas Christian college passed a resolution to remove Chick-fil-A food from the campus dining hall because of the restaurant’s stances on LGBT issues.

Trinity University is a private school affiliated with the Presbyterian Church.

The resolution states that Chick-fil-A donated to “anti-LGBT+” organizations including the Salvation Army, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Paul Anderson Youth Home, and that students in the LGBT+ community have expressed “the drastic assault on their identities and beings as a result of Chick-fil-A’s ideals and actions.”

So now the Salvation Army is anti-LGBT+? Good Freaking Grief!
