This is not a theoretical matter

MD emails to tell of SJWs getting a friend coming under media assault for a Halloween costume:
SJWAL hit close to home today as a family friend was FIRED from his teaching position after posting a picture at a party in a harmless Kanye get-up. His wife being a 'Kim with a bootay' tag-a-long.

All hell broke loose when the pic was posted and he quickly lost his job and issued sort of an apology. From your material I believe this was still a wrong move.

Now, the media leads with the title of "Teacher apologizes for wearing blackface" instead of "Teacher fired for dressing as Kanye"

You've taught me to see through the rhetoric and never give them a tiny opportunity to redirect the narrative. He was apparently an amazing teacher and benefactor to all his students, who were mostly inner city. It's blown to huge proportion now and experts are stating that he shouldn't have been fired but "re-educated" on the issue of blackface.

What would be your tactics in handling this situation now that he's dug himself into a little larger hole? Amazing to see your book come to life.
I don't know if it is true that the teacher lost his job - that seems unlikely given the teachers unions have made it all but impossible to actually fire a teacher for anything short of serial killing students - but the apology was absolutely the wrong move.

As I explained in SJWAL, the apology has been taken for a confession and is now being used to prosecute and further humiliate him. The correct thing to do would have been to inform the school that Halloween costumes often involve dressing up like celebrities and it would be racist to refuse to dress up like a black man. Then he should have arranged to have a picture taken in the classroom, dressed up like Kanye West and surrounded by his smiling black students.

Remember, always fight rhetoric with rhetoric. An apology is a form of dialectic, and we all know that the only thing replying to rhetoric with dialectic produces is more rhetoric.

Remember: never apologize.

And don't even think about resorting to the stupid "I have never seen color in my life" bullshit that features in the guy's craven, futile, "please don't hit me" apology. If you're not completely retarded, you see "color". Even the literally color-blind see color in this regard. All that sort of statement amounts to is publicly declaring that you are not only a brainwashed coward, but there are five lights too.

As far as what he should do now, all I can say is: stop digging. Stop apologizing. Stop cringing and cowering. He chose his course out of fear and it has already metastasized in the media. Now he has to let the chosen scenario play out. If nothing else, he will serve as yet another cautionary tale demonstrating the foolishness of apologizing to SJWs.

Wow. Besides not apologizing he should have asked the school what grounds they had for trying to fire him. Unless this was 1) a crime in the actually legal sense of the term and not some stupid SJW sense, or 2) took place on school grounds/property/or while acting in his capacity as a teacher, there should be nothing that would be considered an offense he should be able to be fired for. Had he not apologized he could have hired a lawyer and sued the district for wrongful termination. And he should have gotten the best and blackest lawyer he could find. Not sure what his options are now.

"Apologiiiise..."

Blogger Cataline Sergius October 27, 2015 6:37 AM  

He's a teacher, the odds of him being an SJW himself are rather high.

Which raises an interesting point.

The Apology, is even more important for the SJWs when they decide to swallow on of their own.

1, Internal discipline. Fear of the Purge is a strong motivational factor for them. It keeps them going. His SJW friends were probably the first to denounce him before the Central Committee and the first to press him for an apology. He probably felt he was entitled to safety due to past demonstrated virtue.

2. Message control. The SJWs aren't a force to be reckoned with if members are constantly drifting off message. It's important that he stated publicly why he was worse than Hitler for dressing like Kanye. Apparently he didn't get the wording right in his apology.

3. Because the SJW sacrificial lamb, models how these things are supposed to be done for the non-SJW. It's important that the non-SJW be shown the proper way to conduct the seppuku ritual.

4. Demonstrated commitment to the cause by the victim of the purge. If you think he learned anything at all from this, you haven't learned anything at all about SJWs. HE WILL BE EVEN MORE OF AN SJW, now that SJWism has destroyed his life. The term is Effort Justification.


Blogger The Original Hermit October 27, 2015 6:37 AM  

I have to wonder how SJWs are so hungry for blood that they latch onto the flimsiest of pretexts. Blackface is frowned upon because it's deliberately unflattering to black people in general. Dressing as Kanye, and rather well especially considering completely different body/face types seems to be the exact opposite.

Blogger Sherwood family October 27, 2015 6:54 AM  

I am thinking of some useful responses this guy could have had when the accusations started to be leveled against him. I could only think of the ones below. How do you think should he have answered?

"And....?"
"So....?"
"Therefore...?"
"What law does that violate?"
"What business of yours is my Halloween costume?"


Blogger Daniel Többens October 27, 2015 6:55 AM  

I would not count on the teachers union in this case. At least here in Germany, the new president of one of the largest unions, the IG-Metall, just called for the dismissal of xenophobic workers. But the US teachers unions might be less PC.

Blogger Sherwood family October 27, 2015 7:03 AM  

Daniel,

Would such a policy be legal under German law? It would serve IG-Metall right if workers just walked away because of this policy and joined other organizations. I am not sure if that is possible but that is what I would try to do. I have staunchly refused to join the unions at the two jobs I worked at because of their political nature. I am not against unions if they do the job they are there for and don't meddle with stuff that has nothing to do with wages, hours, conditions, etc.

The US teachers' union tends to be extremely PC.

Its a cult, let them eat one another, I encourage it in fact. We are just weeding out the weak minded, and if we actually learn to state the obvious the vast bulk of the populace will come to see the SJW as a cult to be avoided then destroyed.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan October 27, 2015 7:24 AM  

If I could only add one more thing, never let those tards talk down to you, it seems to be their only real weapon and conservatives just love to be talked down to as long as they can then recite their bibliography of great books they have read.

Trolltard after trolltard shows up here to bait Vox and they have nothing but the "Talk down" nothing intellectual to add whatsoever. I thought PedoPhil could have broken that pattern, nope he went straight to talk down mode, he had nothing to say.

Do you really want to be scolded by SJWs, I don't and I put a stop to that right off the bat.

Sherwood,
It doesn't matter if the conduct was illegal or not. All the school system has to do is pull out the standard, boilerplate morals clause included in the contract. They then say "conduct unbecoming of a teacher" and " as a representative of our school, these actions do not uphold our high standards of conduct"
Just like they have done with the various female teachers who have had past careers in porn.

Blogger Daniel Többens October 27, 2015 8:01 AM  

Sherwood family,
in principle one cannot be fired for political opinions. But of course you can be sacked for insulting co-workers or for hate speech at the workplace.... And it is rather easy to slip up an bring objectionable politics into the workplace. Case in point, in August a bus driver was fired for wearing a "Thor Steinar"-brand T-shirt to work. Granted, the brand used to be popular with Neo-Nazis, and his work was busing newly arrived refugees. But both the bus driver and his boss declared, that he was no political activist and that he was not aware of the connotations of the brand. Did not help him. And of course no union spoke up for him.

Blogger John Cunningham October 27, 2015 8:24 AM  

VFM #424 here--I don't know about South Carolina specifically, but in some Southern states teacher unions are fairly weak. and of course, any teachers union is a hotbed of SJW crapola. As #11 Mallory said, "conduct unbecoming" is vague enough to cover almost anything.

Another example of how apologizing doesn't work.

He was still fired. If you read the linked story, it is clear his apology is being used against him as a justification for his firing.

He would have been better off remaining silent.

Even SJW's need to learn that they will be eaten by their own kind if they break PC-protocol, and make the horrible decision go down the rabbit hole of posturing and apologizing. Vox has created something that applies to 100% of the population - whether you are a lubricious liberal or a cowering conservative.

I do like the response, "It would be racist of me not to honor such a gifted minority artist such as Kanye. How intolerant, prejudiced and bigoted of you to take offense at me celebrating the subjugated entertainers in our midst."

Do I really strike you as someone who not only needs someone to come up with ideas for him, but has so much free time on his hands that he has nothing better to do than to implement your ideas?

If you have an idea, then own it. Run it by the folks here, by all means. But don't suggest anyone else do anything. One of the most important lessons of #GamerGate is this: just do it yourself.

Blogger Cail Corishev October 27, 2015 11:19 AM  

There's a great video on YouTube about never talking to the cops to try to show your innocence. A lawyer spends 45 minutes explaining why, and then a cop gets up and says, "What he said." He points out that his job is to get you to incriminate yourself if you can. He doesn't know if you're guilty, or what you might be guilty of (though he figures there has to be something, because there are so many laws), but his job is to get you to confess or incriminate yourself if you will. That's what he's trained to do, so give him nothing to work with.

SJWs are the same way: if you offend them, their goal is to destroy you however they can, so give them nothing to work with. Don't apologize, don't try to explain that it wasn't what they think. The best response here would be a shrug and "What?" Even the "What?" might be too much. When the first person came to him with "concerns," he should have looked puzzled and walked away, then shown up for work like normal. If called into some office, he should have said "No comment." Absolutely nothing he could say could improve the situation, so that's what he should have said: nothing.

If you're a master rhetorician, then maybe you engage them on that level. But a guy stupid enough not to realize what the reaction would be to that costume can't be capable of that.

Blogger Michael Banak October 27, 2015 12:39 PM  

First, I view this blog often, but comment rarely. This occasion, I am speaking to some principles in general.

The "don't apologize" strategy seems to be what the SJWs do. Would further denial of guilt be equivalent to "doubling" down as they do?

I have a hard time applying that rule if I am, indeed, wrong.

For the case at hand, I don't see how he did anything wrong with that get-up. So, I would not expect an apology.

Personal example: I absolutely love joking around with help-desk service agents on the phone. They seem to get a lift out of a customer who will tease them in moderation. In the identification phase, I give them a factoid about myself an then they might say, "Michael, please confirm, your street is "Kildare." And then I answer, "Yes! Hey, you're good at this. What color shirt am I wearing?" Well they seem to like that and other lines I pitch. But one day I said, "... you're good at this, what color underwear am I wearing?" The lady pushed back and said that was rude. As a Christian, I had to agree, and apologized.

I have a hard time applying that "no apology" rule if I am experiencing conviction. For what its worth, this happens rarely.

Blogger ncartist October 27, 2015 12:44 PM

That's not what the rule is for. If you honestly think you've done something wrong, apologize -- once, with conviction, take like a man whatever consequences are due, and be done with it.

When you don't think you've done anything wrong, don't apologize, even (especially) if someone demands it.

Thanks, 48. Kirk Parker, 47. Carl Philipp, 43. Were-Puppy

I find apologies to be a very powerful way to make "shalom," if indeed I am in the wrong. But it must be sincere. I never use the word "if," Example: " *IF* I offended you, I'm sorry." Sounds cheap to me.

One of you hit the key for me. An "aha!" moment. That public-display business is a quest for theater, and I don't like it. Personal, direct peace-making is best. But there is another side. We live in an age where silence is interpreted as agreement. I believe open folly deserves open pushback.

I am not afraid of having a rhetorical gun pointed to my head. I am only concerned about by standing before Heaven, which includes *some* deference to graciousness, comportment and avoidance of *needless* offence.

Here's one for you guys: Last time a liberal SJW at the workplace was whining loudly about the fact that I borrowed a tool from his desk (we all did it, all the time in that hectic environment, and I was just one bench over), I said, "C'mon Willy (not his name), I can't have you telling me I gotta tip-toe around here. Besides, when it comes to resources,
we're all socialist here." Williy had no answer.

He was let-go just a few days later.

Blogger Kirk Parker October 27, 2015 9:00 PM  

"Besides, when it comes to resources, we're all socialist here."

Sounds like awesome rhetorical rejoinder to me!

Blogger Michael Banak October 27, 2015 9:58 PM  

Thanks @52. Kirk Parker

Well, I knew he was a liberal from previous discussions, and the socialistic jab threw up quite a roadblock to his open theatrics. He garnered quite an audience up to that point.

I still felt sorry for the guy as he was shown the door days later. Even I didn't see it coming, and I played no role in that decision.
