$4,250 an hour to teach hate

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 30, 2020

MADISON — Pushers of ‘white privilege’ and “critical race theory” are making a killing on Woke campuses with an insatiable appetite for racist antiracism. 

This week, the University of Wisconsin-Madison (where white shaming is a hotter commodity than Badger T-shirts) hosted a virtual event dubbed, “The Pandemic Effect: Exposing Racism and Inequalities.” 

The two-day session featured Robin DiAngelo, critical race educator and author of the New York Times bestseller, “White Fragility.” The keynote speaker for UW-Madison’s 2020 Diversity Forum earned a cool $12,750 for her three-hour address, according to The College Fix. That’s $4,250 per hour. 

What did DiAngelo do to earn such a hefty pay day? She told the 3,300 people who viewed her discussion, “Seeing the Racial Water,” that the world is mired in systemic discrimination, such as sexism and ableism. Of course the white people tuning in wouldn’t understand, the charlatan asserted. 

“If you are white and you have not devoted years of sustained study, struggle and focus on this issue, you will have opinions that will be uninformed and superficial,” DiAngelo said during her speech, The College Fix reported. 

DiAngelo, who is white, would not allow her session to be filmed. Her contracts stipulate as much. 

Forum attendees also could join interactive breakout sessions on “Witnessing Whiteness at UW-Madison.” They could learn that “Niceness is not anti-racism,” or be schooled on “Liars, Cheaters and Short-Haired Girls: Lessons on Gender Identity, Discrimination, Microaggressions and Beyond.” 

It looks like two corporations chipped in to this white-shaming event. 

“Thank you to sponsors American Family Insurance and US Bank for helping keep the UW–Madison Diversity Forum free and open to the entire community,” a UW webpage states.

As Empower Wisconsin reported earlier this month, Ibram X. Kendi, maybe the most well-known of the antiracism hucksters, raked in $20,000 in August to indoctrinate Fairfax County, Va. school leaders and administrators. Kendi was widely criticized for characterizing Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett as a “white colonizer.” Why? Because Barrett and her husband, who are white, had the audacity to add to their loving family two children they adopted from impoverished Haiti. 

His books are being purchased and taught to students in Madison, Stoughton and elsewhere. And Kendi is scheduled to speak next week at Madison College. The event is sold out.

    Wow. More proof that God’s Word is true:

    So drop US Bank and American Family as corporate race baiters. As if we don’t have enough problems. DiAngelo is another miserable child of a broken home and leftist “education.”

    Why is it that we need a white person lecture us on the ‘systemic racism’ against (fill in the blank here with your favorite group). Seems to me she is just projecting a bit. And by the way, stopped my donations to my alma mater a number of years ago due to this b.s. Foolish me, I took to heart that ‘sifting and winnowing’ statement at the College of Letters and Science that I passed on an almost daily basis

    Just another liberal man hater. So ugly on the inside that it shows on the outside. Stop public funding to these indoctrination camps known as colleges and universities.

    Critical Race Theory and other toxic elitist theories run very deep among the academic’s at our universities. This has been building for decades and has now spilled over in to many corporate boardrooms , human resource departments and politician’s manifesto’s . We are in for a number of very unpleasant years as there are now many “graduates” from toxic teachings of people like DiAngelo, Kendi and many more. This must be cut off with full force–their mission is the ultimate in identity politics–NO more individual rights–YOU are only identified by race, gender, creed–and MUST NOT think for yourself but ONLY think in terms of what they teach!! Hope everyone knows this has also permeated K-12 education as well.

    We each CHOOSE WHAT WE BELIEVE. Parents can CHOOSE to send their own children for an alternate education path and skip “higher” education that seeks to shove uneducated participants to a gutter. I CHOOSE to make my own decisions. I CHOOSE to educate myself on many sides of an issue. I CHOOSE alternate resources. I MAKE MY OWN DECISIONS. I don’t have to have someone decide for me what I’m SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE.

    If you are green and you have not devoted years of sustained study, struggle and focus on this issue, you will have opinions that will be uninformed and superficial on Kermit. But at least you’ll be entertained, not bored and disgusted.

    $12,750? Hell, I’d be willing to teach that crap for a mere $11,550. UW is getting screwed!
