No One Can Win, Everyone Must Lose

 

In the zero-sum game of Republicanism, you cannot be nice or polite to anyone without hurting a conservative. Our latest example:

Guilford GOP school board campaign manager says helping children of color feel like they belong hurts white children

GUILFORD, CT. (WFSB) – Mary Beeman, the campaign manager for the Guilford republican school board candidates, commented, “helping kids of color to feel they belong has a negative effect on white, Christian, or conservative kids,” during a UConn. virtual education forum.

The forum was on how to teach race and critical race theory (CRT) in school.

Of course it was about CRT, even though it is not a topic in education beneath the graduate school level, but that part never seems to be mentioned.

And of course, Beeman offers the inevitable correction as follows: It’s Your Fault You Didn’t Understand Me:

When questioned about her comment, Beeman said, “The statement I made was poorly worded and shown out of context.”

Which makes one wonder what a good context might be, you know, outside of a Klan rally.

    When exactly was she questioned about her comment? It was a forum. She should have been questioned as soon as the words came out of her racist mouth. Oh, wait. It was a GQP forum? Nevermind.

  2. Frank Wilhoit: “Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition …There must be in-groups whom the law protects but does not bind, alongside out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect.”

    You simply cannot exist as a conservative without looking down on and feeling superior to other people.

    Why they’re freaking about schools:

    Any time a redneck asshole conservative “Karen” makes racist statements couched within an educational forum, it is usually a visceral reaction to the few remaining vestiges of white guilt that she and others like her struggle with but fail to acknowledge for a fear of being considered ‘weak’ by her contemporaries.

    I live next to the elementary school in a mixed community, so i see children everyday. Children are not racists, they behave as if they have not learned the concept yet. It is always refreshing.

    Her statement was poorly worded, and her thoughts were poorly thunk.
