White People Doing Yoga ‘Xenophobes’ Professor At Michigan State Claims

Published

on

(Via Zerohedge)


White people are ruining sacred things at an alarming rate, according to Michigan State professor Shreena Gandhi, who recently penned the essay “Yoga and the Roots of Cultural Appropriation.”


Gandhi, a professor of religious studies at MSU, claims that Americans who practice yoga are contributing to white supremacy and colonialism.


I’m unsure that the staff over at Michigan State are in a position to be pointing fingers right now, but that’s a topic for another day.


She writes:


Yoga was often used as a tool to show the British that Indians were not backwards or primitive, but that their religion was scientific, healthy, and rational. This was a position they were coerced into…Beyond its utility, yoga became popular, in part, because it reinforced European and Euro-American ideas of India…Yoga became — and remains — a practice which allows western practitioners to experience the idea of another culture while focusing on the self.


…Yoga contributes to our economic system, but never forget this system is one built upon exploitation and commodification of labor, often the labor of black people and people of the global south.


The professor offers exactly zero evidence whatsoever to back up her claims, which begs the question whether Gandhi herself is subconsciously playing into racial stereotypes. It certainly sounds like a stereotype to say yoga grew popular in the West because it allowed westerners to focus on themselves. Is it not a stereotype to claim all westerners are self centered? All easterners are focused more on their communities and shared values?


Gandhi might have an argument if she offered scientific evidence to back up her ideas, but painting entire cultures with broad stroke stereotypes does nothing more than nullify her argument. One cannot defeat cultural ignorance by backing up claims with more ignorance. She gives no numerical statistics on how many black people work to produce things like yoga pants and stretching mats. No charts for exactly when and why yoga caught on in America. No textual evidence of what “Euro-American ideas of India” really are. Readers somehow become more ignorant than when they began reading the essay.


Gandhi also references a meme in her scholarly work, which does little more than reinforce cultural differences and pit races against each other.

COVID-19 Really?

Published

on

Are the CDC, local governments or politicians responsible for falsely labeling homicide deaths as COVID-19?

As per the Cedar Rapids Police Department they say the body of Jordan Driver Haynes, was found in a vehicle along I-380 was murdered. The county medical examiners office has identified the body and ruled cause of death a homicide. The circumstances are still under investigation. So if the police find an apparent homicide victim confirmed by the county coroner, how can this person come up on the list as a COVID-19 pandemic victim? This has been happening very often, and has been documented and reported. Family members have relatives die of various illnesses and accidents and then find somewhere that their loved ones death has been listed as COVID-19.

We have to expound on the financial incentives for this fraud.  A COVID-19 patient brings $13,000 reimbursement to the hospital from the government. A COVID-19 patient put on a ventilator brings $39,000 from the government. Many hospitals and local governments are running in the red and hemorrhaging funds. In New York City in close to twenty years 16 major hospitals have been closed down. Many blue states are close to insolvency. So the big dollars of the COVID-19 come up may be too sweet for some hospitals and governments to give up. Some doctors have said they have been pressured to label deaths as COVD-19.

So may things about this pandemic situation has not panned out to be what we were sold. The people are skeptical because of prediction after prediction after prediction has been wrong, from the amount of ventilators to the peak of hundreds of thousands dead in a week, to the hospitals being overrun and so on. The so called experts have been, wrong, wrong, wrong. The governors and mayors of blue states seem to relish wielding their draconian dictatorial powers to oppress their loyal subjects unnecessarily. The masses are starting to push back. Now we are having a decline in deaths and infections and an increase in suicides. The tide is starting to turn where the people are saying enough! The virus does not override my constitutional right of freedom to assemble and freedom to practice my religion in my designated house of worship.

The people are saying enough we want our lives back!

SJWs Attack Woman Who Made Native American Feather Art Online

Published

on

Lauren Jean Welding LLC Facebook page had posted a new artistic addition to her roster of impressive work. Unfortunately, completely lacking all logic and frankly mad that someone who have such a hobby that doesn’t include ruining your life or succumbing to our poison pill American culture, the wild pack of SJWs closed in on their target, a woman in Montana who enjoys making Welding Art.

They decided to take their anger out on someone who created a piece of art, giving her bad reviews (currently sitting at 1.2 Stars) & commenting obvious and recycled leftist gibberish.

It’s important to note that a woman, Elizabeth Warren specifically, ran a whole Presidential Election without one word from these people. Her entire career was uplifted and guided by the fact she had applied and then apologized for literally lying about being a Native American. The lack of irony is not without mentioning many of these people would never dare question one of their own.

Go support her page and her collection of art from the masses of future cat ladies and men who share their girlfriends!

Meet Jennifer Pritzker: The Trans-Billionaire Big Tech Doesn’t Want You To Know About

Published

on

Did you ever wonder how LGBTQIAPP+ issues got so hot so fast?  America is so busy debating the mass hysteria (trans-bathrooms, genders, pronouns, & drag queens reading to children) that it hasn’t taken the time to ask.

LGBTQIAPP+ “advocates” have been sold to the public as a grassroots movement.  On the contrary, this was a highly inorganic, strategic & well-funded operation.

Meet Jennifer Pritzker: a transgender billionaire that may be patient 0 to this whole mess.

Pritzker is a lifelong Republican, and major donor to candidates and organizations such as the NRA, John McCain, and Mitt Romney. However, she has re-evaluated her support, citing the Trump Administration’s transgender military ban and other anti-LGBTQ policies.

Pritzker funded hundreds of universities, researchers, journalists, and programs aimed at the normalization of radical factions within the LGBT community.  Millions of dollars have gone into this project. Rather than rehash the good work that’s been done, take a look at this video, as well as the sources below this article. 

It’s not unfathomable Pritzker could even be Deep State… it retired as a lieutenant colonel from the United States Army in 2001 and it’s brother is J.B. Pritzker is the current Governor of Illinois.

Facebook censored multiple outlets today attempting to report Pritzker’s unusual activities.  Share this article to spread the news.
