Thank you, we accept

Instapundit is troubled by Marquette University microaggressions:
During a recent forum at Marquette University, students and faculty members enthusiastically agreed that the university’s seal is a “microaggression” because it depicts a white explorer being guided by a Native American. “According to one professor at the forum, the seal shows how Marquette’s namesake, French explorer Fr. Jacques Marquette, ‘took advantage of an economic disparity to have a Native American as his guide.'”

I agree. Shut down Marquette and give the land back to the Indians.
On behalf of my people, I accept the good professor's gracious and historically sensitive offer. This will take Voxiversity to a whole new level!

Aren't these people supposed to be getting an education? Case of instructors: You're supposed to be teaching useful knowledge bozos.
Micro aggressions seem like micro bursts: there one second, you get really wet or it crashes your airliner, gone the next. Few remember except for the bereaved or your clothes dryer.

Was it possible that Marquette needed an Indian guide because Marquette didn't know shit about the local geography?

Anyone ever seen the Jim Carrey movie "Yes Man"? There's a scene at the end of the movie where, at a motivational speaker's meeting, Carrey's character convinces everyone to give up their clothes to charity.

We're reaching the point where if that happens in real life, I'm not even going to be surprised. "Clothes are patriarchal oppression!".

took advantage of an economic disparity


wouldn't that more properly be "production disparity"? did the Indians even care about gold, beyond it's ornamental appeal? they wouldn't have thought script useful for anything beyond kindling.

firearms and other metal worked goods and alcohol, they wanted those.

good thing the Indians had plenty of beaver pelts they could exchange for them.

er, wait.

doesn't possession of surplus beaver pelts mean that the Indians held "economic disparity"?

haven't you observed? paying someone for their services and time is "oppression".

you realize what this means?

students pay professors to educate the student. thus the students are "oppressing" the professors due to their collective "economic disparity" advantage.

just as the native Indians helped Marquette navigate through unfamiliar topography, the professoriate help the students to navigate through and unfamiliar pedagogy.

do you pay a barber to cut your hair? Capitalist Oppressor!

do you pay a doctor to inject your infant with mercury laden vaccines? Running Dog!

do you pay a restaurant staff to serve you food? False Bourgeois Consciousness!

The traders and natives were practicing Free Trade. Which worked OK...until there was Free Movement of Peoples. Then things turned really sour for the native tribes...

Although it infuriates me to see the Indians infantilized by modern SJWs. The Iroquois played power politics skillfully. And the only people who actually BEAT the Vikings back were the Byzantine Empire...and the Skraelings in North America. Not bad company to keep.

even better, a policeman ( who is paid a wage from the public purse, ie - taxes, ie - he's oppressed by every single income tax paying member of the public ... including himself ) writes you a traffic ticket. you go to court to defend yourself. thus you pay "court costs", and possibly a lawyer to defend you against the charges.

let's say that the judge, whom you are paying, rules against you.

look at how many people you have been oppressing!
1 - the traffic cop
2 - the lawyer you hired to defend yourself against the charges
3 - the judge and bailiffs
4 - the clerks who collect all fees and fines at the end of the procedure

So does that mean that all the people who buy tickets to tours run by guides are guilty of taking advantage of economic disparity and are committing microaggressions so that the concept of tours should be thrown out? Inquiring minds want to know.

@25 Hammerli280

The Natives were always going to lose once Europeans settled into the idea of colonization for social structure & technological reasons, but the move to relate them to African bushmen is a deep insult to everyone involved. The Tribes were neither idiots nor fools, they just were on the wrong side of historic trends.

Also just so happen to be one of the most ferocious group of fighters history ever put up. You don't see us naming War Platforms after many other groups. And if you ever met a descended Seminole, expect them to spend a while explaining about how their Tribe was never conquered.

Ah but you see they were "exploited". Had they known those beaver pelts were so highly valued by Europeans, they would have demanded even more for them! It was the job of Europeans to educate the natives on matters of commerce until such time as they could trade as equals. But don't convert them to Christianity! That's cultural oppression.

@25: And the Comanche were the only ones to roll back the white advance for many decades. They fought the Spaniards, the Mexicans, and the Texans—as well as every other injun tribe—to a standstill or worse, conquered almost the entirety of Apacheria, etc. Only when Texas joined the Union and the full attention of the US military (plus the widespread adoption of repeating firearms) were they finally defeated for good. Prior to that, they were the superlative warriors—they were known to be able to lean over sideways on their horse at a full gallop and fire 6 arrows under the horse's neck before the first hit its target. The white settlers at the time had muzzle loaders. Imagine trying to reload *that* on horseback. When Jack Hayes formed the Texas rangers and used "special forces" tactics against them (learned from the injuns themselves) and adopted Samuel Colt's six-shooter, they were able to at least hold their own, but the Texans were generally outmaneuvered and out-manned until the US threw in with them.

There's no denying that there was a fair bit of societal sophistication among the injuns, and this is true even though we only saw them, for the most part, after their population had been devastated by the worst plague ever recorded in human history—as much as 95% of the population was wiped out, which is why only a handful of early Spanish explorers ever saw, for instance, Cahokia or the Anasazi; who were mysteriously gone the next time European explorers and settlers came across their land.

Even living in the equivalent of a Mad Max style post apocalyptic dystopia, the injuns were foes that the Europeans could respect.

They never did respect the Africans. That's why we have Tomahawk missiles and we shout Geronimo as a war cry and have Apache helicopters but not Bantu helicopters or missiles and nobody shouts "Haile Selassie!" when jumping out of a plane.

Blogger Lovekraft March 28, 2018 1:40 PM  

Yet another socjus 'crusade of the bitter.' None of these actions do anything to improve a society. They are temporary morale boosts for the leftist racists. This drug requires more intensity to provide the same effect, thus the slippery slope. An ideology based on negativity, envy and attainment of power. But we here know this.

The 'shithole' country 'incident' of a month ago hasn't really gone away, despite numerous incidents pushing it out of the front page.

A clear metric with which to determine whether a nation is healthy, sustainable, representative of the core ethnic group is needed. It would list what should NOT be evident to give it a positive rating (public defecation, gay pride parades, public drunkenness, child marriage, sharia etc).

@33 Desdichado

That period between 1490 and 1600 in the Americas is, because of the general lack of massive local record keeping, considerably lost to history, however it might be the closest thing to a near-term Apocalypse any part of the world had ever seen. It's very likely most of the Indian populations had just barely survived massive, reoccurring droughts throughout the entirety of the Western States and Central Plains, right in time for the global-scale plagues to show up. In fact, being driven to different regions by the drought likely drove up the death toll to the plagues.

European settlers being called the "White Death" would have been more accurate. It was bound to happen the instant the continents could share people, but it was the first Globalist Genocide of the modern era.

@32 links to possibly the single most cucked sentence ever published, even at TownHall. The essay opens with:
Even in our turbocharged political climate, it's important to respect boundaries and maintain a sense of propriety, even when 'the other side's' conduct and rhetoric may feel like an open invitation to escalate, in the name of "fighting back."
Even the punctuation of that sentence is cucked. Guy Benson desperately wants to be pregnant with his wife's lover's child.

Marquette University is located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. It's interesting because it's a fairly nice university, smack dab in the middle of the ghetto. It's not far from where Jeffrey Dahmer lived. I do wonder what they tell the students about diversity, vs. what the kids really figure out about diversity from their own experience.

A couple years ago Marquette fired one of their professors, John McAdams, because he allowed students to disagree with the idea of gay marriage. This at a "Catholic" university.

Give Marquette back to the Indians. The sooner the better.

Blogger Simple living March 28, 2018 8:32 PM
