Apparently, You Can Legislate Stupid

Things must be absolutely perfect in Madison, Wisconsin, since our state legislature decided to pass a bill banning words in school. No, I’m not making this up and it also covers governmental training.

The list includes “diversity, equity and inclusion,” “anti-racism,” “conscious and unconscious bias,” “equity,” “hegemony,” “intersectionality,” “patriarchy,” “spirit murdering,” “systemic racism,” “white privilege” and “woke.”

You can’t make this shit up.

Critical race theory is “rapidly progressing into our beloved institutions” and creating “categories of oppressed and oppressors, pitting them against each other,” said Rep. Gae Magnafici, R-Dresser, who authored the bill pertaining to local and state governments.

*facepalm*

Dude, where the actual fuck have you been? Do you have any idea how we actually colonized this country? Or how much genocide took place here?!

“Critical race theory runs counter to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of a nation where children are not judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character,” Magnafici said.

Do me a huge favor: take his name out of your mouth right now. Don’t you dare pretend to speak for him. Because you wouldn’t dare stand by his side and don’t even act like you would.

But, it gets worse because fuck everything, we live in a post apocalyptic hellscape: the Wisconsin senate has approved a bill allowing fourteen year olds to work until 23:00. Because, you know, why not exploit children for profit all in the name of a labor shortage?

Tell me again just how awesome and amazing capitalism is and explain it to me like I’m five years old. Because I see nothing awesome, or amazing, or even decent, about any of this.

Slag this noise. I’m done.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
