People with mental health issues were once institutionalized, then they weren’t – because some decided it was better to let them wander the streets.
Now they are being institutionalized again, just this time in graduate programs at Ivy League universities.
They now make millions of dollars by producing intellectual pornography based on little more than myth and thinly supported theories. This psycho-porn is lapped up by the elites who wish to use that mental illness as a lever to power, and people with similar mental illnesses who are looking for a way explain their own failures in life and to blame those failures on anybody but themselves.
It sure seems that these institutions are turning out a lot of people with a lot of acronyms after their names who simply reject reality, dismissing facts and data that destroy their premises, constructing their own reality and language from whole cloth. Most of these people are second or third rate “scholars”, psychopaths and sociopaths whose only worth to society is as a weapon for the people who seek to destroy Western civilization in general and America in specific.
We have Yale sponsored psychologist Aruna Khilanani, speaking on the topic “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind” who admits to having:
“… fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a fucking favor.”
Ibram X. Kendi, the most current star of Cultural Marxism, was born in 1982. His mom was a business analyst and his dad a tax accountant. Kendi has spent his entire adult life in academia. From his high school graduation in 2000 until his receipt of his Doctorate in 2012, his only academic focus was “African American Studies” (BS, MS and Ph.D.)
Do you suppose he might just have an insular vision of racism in America? Just how much racism would you think there was at Florida A&M (a HBCU) or Temple University in the 2000’s?
Kendi was recently asked to define racism – and he couldn’t put together a coherent response. Here is Kendi’s definition of racism:
“A collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.”
I was taught in the third grade that a proper definition of a subject should not contain references to the subject as a basis because that creates a circular argument – i.e. communism is communist in nature because communists do it. That’s not a definition, it tells you nothing (other than the person who says such things has no clue what they are talking about).
And that is from the 38 year-old Ibram Henry Rogers from Queens (who took his wife’s last name when they married), a Ph.D. level “scholar” in African-American Studies and the current star of Critical Race Theory.
But you understand why Kendi couldn’t go to Webster’s definition of racism, right?
If he did, people would see that CRT is just basic racism, only this time it is socially condoned racism prosecuted by a subset of black Americans against white people.
Just like the hysterical, gun-grabbing left who cannot tell you what an “assault weapon” is, it would seem if you are going to advance psycho-porn to destroy American culture, you at least need to have a thorough understanding of the item or charactistic on which your entire body of work is based.
I get how this works, trillions of dollars have been spent on welfare and preferential programs to lift black America out of poverty and eliminate discrimination – and yet the elites see little to no progress. To them, it might as well be 1850 because the debate about race is as sharp, angry and divisive as ever.
In a remarkable illustration of absurdity, black intellectuals and social activists share common cause with with Skinheads, the KKK and other white supremacist groups, concluding segregation and “separate but equal” is the way to go and Brown vs. Board of Education was wrongly decided.
Let us have the oft-mentioned but never honestly held “national conversation on race”.
But before we do, let’s do this – let us stop assuaging white progressive psyches, those laden with white guilt in the form of PTSD contracted in the foxholes of university faculty lounges and the bloody battlegrounds of the cocktail parties in the Hamptons and the Aspen Ideas Festival. Let’s out the fraudulent academics whose only purpose in life is to produce race based psycho-porn. Let’s stop teaching our kids to be racists and ashamed of their skin color.
Then we can talk.
One thought on “Institutionalizing the Mentally Ill”
Very well said, Michael. Truth is hard from some folks. Especially the mentally ill.
