SCOOP: Seattle Public Schools tells teachers that the education system is guilty of “spirit murder” against black children and that white teachers must “bankrupt [their] privilege in acknowledgement of [their] thieved inheritance.”

Let's review the whistleblower documents.👇
The trainers begin by claiming that teachers are colonizers of Native American "ancestral lands" and that “the United States was built off the stolen labor of kidnapped and enslaved Black people’s work, which created the profits that created our nation.”
The participants identify themselves by both gender pronouns and race labels. While it has become commonplace in academia to use gender pronoun identifiers, this is perhaps the first example of an institution creating the expectation for explicit race-labeling in the workplace.
The trainers tell white teachers that they "must commit to the journey" of anti-whiteness, even if their "lizard-brain" makes them "afraid that [they] will have to talk about sensitive issues such as race, racism, classism, sexism, or any kind of ‘ism.’"
The central message is that white teachers must recognize that they “are assigned considerable power and privilege” because of their “possession of white skin.” To atone for this guilt, they must “bankrupt [their] privilege in acknowledgement of [their] thieved inheritance.”
Next, the teachers hold a discussion about “spirit murder,” which, according to Dr. Bettina Love, is the concept that Americans schools “murder the souls of Black children every day through systemic, institutionalized, anti-Black, state-sanctioned violence.”
The goal of this program is to transform public schools into activist organizations. At the end, teachers must explain how they will practice “anti-racist pedagogy,” address “current social justice movements taking place,” and become “anti-racist outside the classroom.”
In recent years, the district has expanded its Department of Racial Equity Advancement and deployed “racial equity teams” in dozens of schools. The stated goal is to “advance educational racial equity,” but in practice, this program often serves to enforce an ideological agenda.
Seattle Public Schools likes to claim they are “teaching tolerance,” but in truth, they are teaching hate.

The Seattle City Council will consider legislation to provide blanket immunity to misdemeanor crimes to any person who suffers from poverty, homelessness, addiction, or mental illness.

Here's how the legislation would work. 🧵
As a pretext, the councilmembers claim that "income inequality," "local law enforcement's killing of Black, Indigenous, and people of color," and "poverty, institutional racism, and systemic oppression" are the root causes of crime. ImageImage
The legislation would exempt anyone with an addiction or mental health disorder from a wide range of crimes, including theft, assault, harassment, drug possession, property destruction, and indecent exposure. ImageImage

SCOOP: San Diego Unified School District is forcing teachers to attend "white privilege" training, in which teachers are told "you are racist" and "you are upholding racist ideas, structures, and policies."

The leaked documents from the training session will shock you.👇
The training begins with a "land acknowledgement," in which the teachers are asked to accept that they are colonizers living on stolen Native American land. Then they are told they will experience "guilt, anger, apathy, [and] closed-mindedness" because of their "white fragility."
After watching clips of Robin DiAngelo and Ibram Kendi, the trainers tell the teachers: "you are racist," "you are upholding racist ideas, structures, and policies," and that they must commit to becoming "antiracist" in the classroom. They must submit to the new racial orthodoxy.

My feature documentary "America Lost" premieres tonight on PBS World!

It's hard to get a conservative film on national public television and we had to fight off multiple attempts to cancel it.

Grateful to my friends at PBS who stood up for this film!…
It's been a journey for me with this film.

When I first made the decision to engage politically, I had old funders refuse to return my calls and old friends refuse to work on the project.

The documentary world is hyper-ideological—and I realized that I had to get out.
Two years ago, as I was finishing "America Lost," I wrote my first essay for @CityJournal, which led to an incredible line of opportunities with conservative think tanks and publications.

The documentary world closed its doors; the political world swung them wide open.

SCOOP: The government of King County, WA has a segregation problem.

According to new documents, King County Public Health held a series of racially-segregated diversity training sessions, teaching employees that they have "internalized racial oppressions [and] superiority."

Last year, the King County government gathered their homeless healthcare workers into racially-segregated sessions—called "race affinity caucuses"—to root out "White Supremacy Culture" and "decolonize their minds."
The trainers told white employees that they needed to deconstruct their "internalized racial superiority," "work through guilt, shame, & other barriers that hold white people back." Then they "remind[ed] white people that work needs to be done to dismantle racism every day."

Dear @TheJusticeDept: the King County Library (@KCLS) is now admitting to instituting a policy of racial segregation.

They use the euphemism "caucused listening sessions," but they explicitly separated people by race—and are in violation of the Civil Rights Act.

Shut it down.
Regarding their point in the final paragraph: as I wrote in my New York Post exposé, I reached out to the race training firm that conducted the segregated sessions and they refused to comment on the story.

Segregation is wrong—and woke segregation is no better.
The screenshot above is from the @KCLS official Reddit account:

SCOOP: Three Seattle-area government agencies are now holding racially-segregated diversity training programs.

I've obtained exclusive whistleblower documents that expose this shocking new policy, which could be described as "segregation for social justice."

Let's dig in. 🧵
The King County Prosecutor recently implemented a new policy requiring employees to sign an "equity and social justice" pledge and assigning “continued training for white employees,” who must “accept responsibility for their own racism” and “question the White power structure.”
The King County Library System hired a private firm to conduct racially-segregated "listening sessions" to root out “institutional privileges and systemic inequities embedded in the current socio-political conditions.” They claimed to have found widespread "institutional racism."
