Nicola Richards: What I learned from my haunting meeting with a Holocaust survivor

Nicola Richards is the Member of Parliament for West Bromwich East.

This week on Holocaust Memorial Day we mark 75 years since the liberation of the concentration and death camps of Europe and the end of the Second World War.

That’s 75 years since the world understood the full scale and horror of what had happened as the Nazis and their collaborators tried to eliminate the Jews of Europe.

I am pleased to see that people in my constituency, as well as across the country, feel a sense of responsibility in ensuring that the memory of six million innocent Jewish men, women, and children carries on to the next generation. Today, we should reflect on how we can use our knowledge and understanding of the past to create a future in which such antisemitism, racism, and hatred is no more.

However, I know that we face a very real challenge. Despite what we know of the Holocaust, antisemitism, racism, and hatred are still a very real problem here in the UK and across the world – and rising year on year.

Two years ago I met an incredible woman: Susan Pollack MBE, a Holocaust survivor. Susan was born in Hungary in 1930. As a young girl, aged about eight years old, she remembers beginning to notice antisemitism in her home town – her brother was denied a place at university because of anti-Jewish laws, and when her uncle was murdered by fascists the attacker was sentenced to just two years imprisonment (and he actually served much less).

The situation deteriorated after the outbreak of the Second World War. Physical attacks became more common, anti-Jewish graffiti appeared on the streets, and radio stations began broadcasting antisemitic propaganda.

In 1944, a letter was issued by the council for all Jewish fathers to attend a meeting. Susan’s father was among those men who went to the meeting, but when they arrived, they were herded into waiting lorries and taken to a concentration camp. Susan never saw her father again.

That year almost all of the Jews of Hungary were deported (mostly to Auschwitz-Birkenau), and Susan, her brother and her mother were ordered to leave their home. They were sent to a ghetto, and later sent by cattle truck to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Upon arrival the family were separated. Susan soon learnt that her mother had been sent directly to a gas chamber, where she was murdered simply for being Jewish.

Susan survived camps, slave labour, and a death march. On 15th April she was liberated by the British Army from Bergen-Belsen. She and her brother, Laci, were the only members of her family to survive the Holocaust – over 50 relatives were murdered. Many of those who survived were the sole survivors of their families, towns, and communities.

When I met Susan, we were both standing on Parliament Square. We were at a rally where over 2000 people had gathered to stand up against a growing tide of antisemitism. I couldn’t believe that I was stood talking to a Holocaust survivor. I couldn’t believe that Susan had lived through so much, had seen antisemitism tear her family and community apart, but felt like she had no choice to protest against the same hatred over 70 years later.

Susan is brave, determined, and exudes such passion and hope for the future. But, I imagine that she found it hard that day – I wondered how she felt standing there, knowing that the age-old hatred that led to the murder of 50 members of her family is still here with us today.

In Europe and across the world antisemitism remains a problem that must be addressed. We owe it to the victims and survivors of the Holocaust to remember.

But we must do more than remember. We must stand together, and we must act – we are all responsible for shaping a world in which people from all backgrounds can live free from fear of persecution. We must share the truth of the past; we must ensure that the eye-witness accounts we have heard live on; and when we see antisemitism, racism, or hatred of any kind we must call it out.

Unfit for office. But worse even than Corbyn are Labour’s moderates – who are willing to put his anti-Jewish racism into power.

It’s claimed that the twentieth century saw a totalitarianism of race, fascism, and one of class, communism.  But the truth is that the two tended to mingle.  The nazis were class warriors, at least in their earlier phases (the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, our italic).  And the communists were sometimes race ones.

Stalin “always hated Jews”, Paul Johnson tells us.  “He hated the fact that so many of his relatives wished to marry Jews, and refused to meet five out of his eight grandchildren.”

So perhaps the institutional anti-semitism of Labour under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership should be all that surprising.  But it still has the power to shock.  One Jewish party member was told that “Hitler was right”; another heard two members agree that Jews are “subhuman”. Another that “we only have prostitutes in Seven Sisters because of the Jews”. An unsuccessful council candidate was told to go home and count his money.

An online post referred to “bent-nosed manipulative liars”; another to “cockroaches of the Jew kind”.  Others used such terms as “kike” and “yid”.  One Jewish Labour MP was called a “yid c**t”.  Another was told that “we shall rid the Jews who are a cancer on all of us”.  The party has certainly lost the MP concerned.  It was Luciana Berger, now a Liberal Democrat – unable to bear Corbyn’s Labour any more.

Another member was called a “f**king Jew”.  Another former Labour MP, Louise Ellman, has left the party.  But why continue this shaming list?  Please note: none of these quotes are connected with Israel.  None of them even land in that murky territory where anti-Zionism and anti-semitism meet – for example, where Israel’s actions are compared to the nazis’.

All that is necessary to add is that the source of these quotes is decidedly non-Conservative.  It is the closing submission to the Equality and Human Rights Commission of the Jewish Labour Movement, the party’s “only Jewish and longest-standing affiliate”, as it describes itself.  The assertion that Labour’s anti-semitism is “institutional” and “endemic” is the Movement’s own.

And it is in no doubt at all why it has come about.  “Since Jeremy Corbyn has become leader of the Labour Party, he has made the party a welcoming refuge for anti-semites,” the submission says.  It goes on to list in detail Labour’s failing to deal with the problem under the following headings: failure to implement processes to protect Jewish members from anti-semitism; hostile response to those calling out anti-semitism…

…Denial; discrediting of victims; defence of perpetrators; active victimisation of those calling out anti-semitism: on and on the submission goes.  The more of the detail one reads, the less Corbyn’s own personal views matter.  Whether he is or isn’t himself anti-semitic becomes scacely the point any more (though the evidence suggests that in his characteristic dim muddy way he is.  (“Zionists don’t understand English irony”, he once said.)

Yes, anti-Muslim prejudice, and even anti-semitism, can be found on the Right.  ConservativeHome needs no-one to remind us so: after all, we were the first conservative media outlet, as far as we know, to call for an enquiry into the former – doing so as long ago as 2010.  We later supported an enquiry into all forms of hatred by the anti-extremism commissioner.  The Conservatives have taken up the idea of an independent enquiry.

But there is a solid reason why most of our media colleagues have fixed their attention on anti-semitism and Jeremy Corbyn rather than anti-Muslim prejudice and Boris Johnson.  It is because while parallelism always has a mesmeric attraction, there is sense in not applying it in this case.  Which is why Sayeeda Warsi’s campaign has struggled to gain lift-off outside its usual Guardian and Independent stomping grounds.

If the parallel really applied, Johnson would have been playing footsie for years with, say, David Duke.  (Steve Bannon is not the same thing – and his relationship with Johnson is clearly tangential, in any event.)  And the problem with Party members would be far wider and deeper than all the available evidence suggests that it is.  That independent enquiry into prejudice and hatred cross-party would tell us more.

In the meantime, there is an election to be getting on with.  Most voters will have what to them are more pressing reasons to reject Corbyn than anti-semitism.  After all, nearly all of them aren’t Jewish.  Labour’s anti-semitism thus touches few of them directly.  Far more simply don’t trust Labour with their taxes.  Or think Corbyn just isn’t a leader. Or hate his pro-IRA history. Or else just want to “get Brexit done”, as Johnson keeps putting it.

They nonetheless have – in the other sense of the words that follow – an interest in anti-semitism: a stake in opposing it, one might say.  Hatred of Jews is what doctors would call an early indicator, a bit like memory loss in relation to Alzheimer’s: a warning of what is to come.  If Labour is prepared to treat a group of people with such institutional viciousness, simply because of who they are, how will they treat other people they dislike?

If the party’s own internal processes won’t deal with anti-semitism justly, how can its leaders be trusted to use the machinery of government fairly?  For example, would businesses get a fair price for assets that are nationalised?  Would companies get proper value for the shares they commandeer?  What price would Labour compel landlords to sell their properties at?  What wages would they force businesses to pay?

As Neil O’Brien recently put it on this site: “where Corbyn’s ideas really differ from previous Labour leaders is that he doesn’t really believe in the rule of law. Your house, your business, your savings: all these things don’t really belong to you, in Corbyn’s eyes: you have them only as long as the government suffers you to have them, and they can be retrospectively taken away if he sees fit.”

The Jewish Labour Movement knows all this very, and has decided that, Labour though it is to the core, it cannot give Corbyn the thumbs-up – or even wrap itself in the silence that can be taken for consent.  Others have decided otherwise.  We know what his own Shadow Health Secretary thinks of Corbyn, thanks to Guido Fawkes’ story yesterday.

We scarcely need to guess what the stalwarts of Blairism and Brownism think: Yvette Cooper, Hillary Benn, Jess Phillips, Liz Kendall.  Unlike Berger, they haven’t been driven out.  Unlike Tom Watson, they haven’t walked away.

They’re still there – standing for election.  Their anti-Toryism outweighs Corbyn’s anti-semitism.  It must do: or they wouldn’t be prepared to support him as Prime Minister in the event of Labour forming a government.  We say that they are therefore even worse than he is – worthy of a place in an even lower circle of hell.

Corbyn either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about the vileness of the institutional anti-semitism that he has brought to his party: the other of what was, until he got hold of it, Britain’s great modern democratic twins.  They know.  And truly, they care.  But not enough.

Black Security Guard Fired From High School After Telling Student Not to Call Him the N-Word Gets Last Laugh

There’s good news this week for Marlon Anderson, the black security guard at a high school in Wisconsin who earlier this month lost his job after telling a combative student who was calling him the n-word to stop using the word.

The Associated Press reports:

MADISON, Wis. — A Wisconsin school district is rehiring a black security guard after he was fired last week for repeating a racial slur while telling a student not to use it, a union official said Monday.

Doug Keillor, executive director of Madison Teachers Inc., said that the union was contacted by school officials Monday saying interim Superintendent Jane Belmore decided to rescind the firing of Marlon Anderson.

Anderson said in a Facebook post Monday afternoon, “I’m back!!” He said he learned of his rehiring while at his new job Monday.

“Thank you to the 1,000 plus students for allowing your voices to be heard and to all the people from across the globe for reaching out to my family,” Anderson said in his post.

Read Anderson’s full Facebook post below:

I'm back!! While at work today at Boys & Girls Clubs, I learned from the Madison Teachers Union President that School…

Posted by Marlon Anderson on Monday, October 21, 2019

Anderson told multiple media outlets last week that the school dismissed him after a situation involving a black student quickly became volatile:

[Marlon] Anderson told NBC News on Friday that after a black student repeatedly called him a n—–, he asked the student last week to stop.

This week, Anderson said he learned that school officials terminated his employment, citing a zero tolerance policy on the use of derogatory language by staff members.

“My understanding of the policy was white staff shouldn’t use the N-word under any circumstances,” Anderson said. “But I had no idea me being called the word and me telling the student not to call me the word would get me fired.”

Having a “zero tolerance” policy on the n-word is one thing, but enforcing it by way of firing a black man for telling a student to stop using it on him was just over the top.

Fortunately, Anderson didn’t give up on the job he loved. Not only that, but students, faculty, and the community reacted to the news he was fired by showering him with support. A local boys and girls club location even gave him a temporary job just so he could make ends meet while the appeals process with the school district ran its course.

Watch the emotional interview he did with WFMY last week on what he went through, and how he describes hearing students use the word all the time:

The Madison Metropolitan school district is reportedly reviewing their zero tolerance policy in light of this incident.

Journalists are Amused by the Irony of Canadian PM ‘Jussie Trudeau’ Winning a Minority Government

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-4 Journalists are Amused by the Irony of Canadian PM ‘Jussie Trudeau’ Winning a Minority Government racism Race Justin Trudeau Front Page Stories Featured Story elections Culture Canada Andrew Scheer Allow Media Exception

 

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau managed to squeak out a narrow victory on Monday night, winning a minority government. Trudeau prevailed over his Conservative rival, Andrew Scheer, to win a second term. Late polls showed a very tight race.

Given the numerous photos and videos showing Trudeau in black and brown face that surfaced in the months leading up to the election, many journalists are having a little fun with the fact that he has won a minority government.

Conservative icon Michelle Malkin, who refers to the Prime Minister as “Jussie Trudeau,” tweeted that “Jussie Trudeau is now a real minority — and he doesn’t have to wear blackface!”

Twitchy points out that the New York Times‘ headline states that Trudeau’s party will lose its House of Commons majority, rather than saying Trudeau won a minority government.

Other media outlets, such as CP24 (above) and AFP News relished the irony of it all and couldn’t resist.

Here are some responses to the news by twitter users (via Twitchy):

Someone explain to Justin that minority here does not mean he has to go shoe polish shopping

Trudeau finally gets to be a real minority.

Congrats to Canada for re-electing its first black PM.

I see what you did there…

For those who may have missed the photos.

And finally, “That face when you’re ’bout to form a minority gov.”

Can you imagine if even a single photo emerged of President Trump wearing black face?

Beto O’Rourke Told a Room Full of Democrats That You – Yes You – Are a Racist

Beto O’Rourke by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Democratic 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is so woke that he’s officially become the wokest candidate among the pack. What’s more, he can’t wait to show you how woke he is.

While addressing the Alabama Democratic Conference’s semi-annual convention in Birmingham, Alabama, O’Rourke showed you just how racist he’s not by pointing out that everyone in America is a racist country because it’s racist at its foundations.

Bold strategy, Cotton.

“Despite my obvious pride in the role my community played in the civil rights history of America, despite what I think we represent to this country and the rest of the world — about the genius of America being able to integrate people who come from everywhere and call this country home…this country, though we may not be in El Paso, Texas, is still racist at its foundation, at its core, and throughout history,” said O’Rourke.

His calling this country “racist” naturally received applause from the Democrat attendees.

It’s odd to me that we still hear this kind of rhetoric from Democrats who currently govern a country where they elect minorities on both sides of the aisle. Democrats who live in a country where we just recently had a black president. Where we have celebrities, athletes, and business owners of every shade of skin color and ethnic background.

The institutional racism O’Rourke is mentioning here is nonexistent. A country that is racist at its core wouldn’t allow for any of the above. While it’s clear that many minority communities have their struggles, blaming it on some nebulous spirit of racism is like saying it rains because it does. The social justice left that O’Rourke belongs to would rather commit to the narrative that bad things happen to minorities because of racism, and not really look at the underlying causes as to why.

But the most insulting part is that in order for a country to be racist, there have to be practicers of racism. According to O’Rourke, that’s you. You’re racist. Maybe you don’t think you are, or maybe you don’t mean to be, but O’Rourke and woke Democrats like him are here to tell you that you’re just the worst.

In short, he thinks you’re horrible and that the only way to fix you is to give him power over you.

Trump’s Policies are Making Black Women Obese, ‘Kill Our People,’ Says Angry (Obese) Rutgers Gender Studies Professor

Last month, Rutgers University gender studies professor Brittany Cooper appeared on an episode of the Oprah network’s show “Black Women OWN the Conversation.” She participated in a panel discussion about why so many black women are obese.

In case any of you missed it, she made the connection between President Trump’s policies and obesity rates among black women. Speaking to an audience of 100 black women, Cooper said, “I hate when people talk about black women being obese. I hate it, because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create. We are living in the Trump era. And look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.”

She told the group that when black women follow the same diet as white women, “we lose less weight and we lose it slower.” According to Cooper, “public health practitioners think that our stress responses in the body change our metabolism.”

Drumroll, please. Wait for it.

“It’s literally that the racism you are experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don’t work for you the same.”

The women in the audience all nod in agreement.

Leading the panel was a very fit young black woman. My heart rose for a moment when she said, “It’s also important for us to note that we have the power,” but fell when she completed her sentence with “to choose how we see ourselves.” What?

She continued “We will be fortified to fight all of these external issues when we pour into ourselves enough to say, ‘I love me. I’m not the conditions that surround me. I am not my experience. I am more than the circumstances I have gone through.”

To say that Trump’s policies are responsible for the obesity of black women is, obviously, ridiculous. I searched the internet for any year-over-year comparisons to see if obesity has increased over the last three years among this demographic, but was unable to find any up-to-date studies.

Studies do show that obesity is disproportionately higher for black women than any other group. Four out of five are considered to be obese. And obesity rates have increased in the U.S. overall in the past two decades.

But these women are preaching a victim mentality. It is self-defeating and it is dangerous. How about instead of telling these women “It’s also important for us to note that we have the power to choose how we see ourselves,” you tell them ‘it’s also important for us to note that we have the power to choose what we put into our mouths, to go out for a walk once a day or to go to the gym.’

To blame obesity on race is self-defeating. To blame obesity on President Trump’s policies is insane.

The U.S. economy is the healthiest it’s been in years. The unemployment rate, both overall and among blacks, is the lowest it’s been in half a century. I doubt very much that economic pressure among blacks has increased in the last three years.

Putting aside any Trump connections, instead of giving these young women excuses for their obesity, thereby perpetuating the cycle, why not tell them it doesn’t have to remain this way?

I know. We are living in the era of Trump. And everyone is a victim.

In a clear case of a zero tolerance policy running amok, a black security guard at a high school in Madison, Wisconsin was canned this week because he told a confrontational student to stop calling him the n-word.

NBC News reports:

[Marlon] Anderson told NBC News on Friday that after a black student repeatedly called him a n—–, he asked the student last week to stop.

This week, Anderson said he learned that school officials terminated his employment, citing a zero tolerance policy on the use of derogatory language by staff members.

“My understanding of the policy was white staff shouldn’t use the N-word under any circumstances,” Anderson said. “But I had no idea me being called the word and me telling the student not to call me the word would get me fired.”
[…]
The school board president said officials would review the district’s policies.

“We’ve taken a tough stance on racial slurs, and we believe that language has no place in schools,” the board president, Gloria Reyes, said in a statement.

So the best approach to fighting racial slurs in school is to fire a black employee who used the word in the context of telling a black student not to call him that same word?

That. is. crazy.

Here’s an email that was sent from the school district to parents about what happened, noting an incident involving “a staff member using a racial slur with students.” It also stated that the staff member “will not” be returning to the school, and stipulates there are no exceptions to the rule:

Fortunately for Anderson, there’s light at the end of the tunnel. After appealing the school’s decision, he had a temporary job offer. So now he’ll be able to earn a living while he awaits word on his appeal:

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Dane County offered a job to a security guard who was recently fired from his position as a security guard at Madison West High School.
[…]
“Marlon Anderson has an amazing track record working with local teens,” The Boys and Girls Clubs of Dane County said in a Facebook post. “We are pleased to welcome Marlon to this temporary position until his appeal is finalized by Madison Metropolitan School District.”

Thanks to the widespread outcry from students, staff, and the community, that appeals process is being expedited, which is great news.

If two trains leave Tulsa at 3 p.m., 1 traveling at 75 mph and the other 85, and if the first goes east and the other west, how long will it take for them to be 487 miles apart?

The answer: White cisgender b*st*rds have systematically subjugated all others through social constructs and capitalistic manifestations of the inherent patriarchal evil.

Perhaps you haven’t learned the new math, but there’s a lot of it goin’ ’round.

Just see: “Seattle Public Education Posts Its White-Privilege ‘Math Ethnic Studies Framework,’ And It Just May Blow Your Mind

But for those of you who understand that objectivity is outdated and not subscribing to microagressions is a microagression and commiting a microagression is a macroagression, do we have a job for you.

Dr. Kate Clancy is offering the opportunity of a lifetime to one lucky “anti-racist, intersectional feminist biologist” jonesing for a PhD.

If you’ve always wanted to study how…

Well, I’ll just let her tell it:

“Are you an anti-racist, intersectional feminist biologist looking for an awesome lab in which to get your PhD? Want to study how environmental stressors (including those from structural racism/sexism) influence women’s & gender diverse people’s reproductive function?”

She’s nothing if not specific. Because, what if you were a racist intersectional feminist biologist? Wrong fit.

But if you’ve got the goods, she’s sittin’ on go to “advocate for you”:

According to her Twitter profile, Kate’s an associate professor at the University of Illinois. Her interests: “Harassment, discrimination, stress, and menstrual cycles.”

Apparently, she also hosts the Period Podcast, “a podcast about ladypart science.”

And if you’re worried about sexual violence in the world, Kate’s fixing it:

As for the job opening, she’s got some interest:

“Can I get a second PhD? Because I think I would love that environment!”

“I mean… it’s too late for me. But are you looking for postdocs?”

“Is the fall start strict? I have a current masters student who would be really interested in this, but doesn’t finish until end of 2020!”

“If this had been two years ago I would have been there in a second! Doing my PhD already but if/when you’re looking for a post doc in a few years, you’ll hear from me so quick”

Some naysayers got serious:

“Dr. Clancy, you should come see the institutional racism and slaughter of whites in South Africa. Some liberals calls it payback. Was never this bad under Apartheid though. Read the book “Kill the Boer” by Ernst Roets.”

“Makes me highly suspicious of your work. The study of biology should have no political leaning, and to recruit on ideological bent is a huge red flag. I knew this crap was in the humanities, but it seems it’s metastasising…”

“If you had any sense whatsoever you would completely and utterly ashamed of yourself for spreading this ideological excrement. It is truly a a clear indication of a deep disorder of the mind.”

And there was this head-scratcher:

But then there were these:

And this:

I’m posting this one mostly for the screen name:

And just in case you’re interested in the opening but intimidated by Kate’s academic disposition, she’s a chick who can get casual with the best of ’em:

Hillary: British tabloids might be a wee bit racist in targeting Markle

Westlake Legal Group hillary-view Hillary: British tabloids might be a wee bit racist in targeting Markle The Blog tabloids Royal Family racism meghan markle Hillary Clinton

Finally, the Brits have their own reason to feel annoyed at Hillary Clinton. For some reason, the former top diplomat decided to weigh in on a controversy involving the press and the royals in an interview with the Times of London. While doing a press tour for her new book Gutsy Women, Hillary accused the tabloids of unfairly scrutinizing former American Meghan Markle, and said she believes the now-princess’ biracial ethnicity is at least part of the reason:

Hillary Clinton defended Meghan Markle in a new interview, saying her biracial background “certainly” played a role in the British tabloids’ harsh treatment of her.

“I do want to say that the way she’s been treated is inexplicable,” the former Secretary of State told The Sunday Times of London in an interview.

“If the explanation is that she’s biracial, then shame on everybody,” Clinton said — adding she believes race is “certainly part of it.”

First of all, whether it’s true or not, why is Hillary Clinton lecturing Brits over their alleged latent racism? It’s as much a non-sequitur as having Boris Johnson or David Cameron drop by to lecture us on whatever wokeness deficiency they might see among Americans. Whether or not it’s factual is almost beside the point. How would they grasp the issue without living here to know the parameters of the issue? It’s cultural imperialism of the kind over which we actually do get lectured by our elites.

Anyway, the charge is almost impossible to verify, plus it ignores decades of rabid coverage and criticism of the royals long before Markle showed up on the scene. British tabloids have hounded royals without shame or ethics at least since Charles courted Diana, and the tabloids literally chased Diana to her death 22 years ago. It’s not difficult to believe that the tabloids are treating Markle unfairly, but they’ve been doing that with royals for a very long time without needing racism as animus. One would imagine that Markle would have understood that before marrying into the highest-profile, most privileged family in the West, if not the world.

And let’s not pretend that the royals aren’t playing the media at the same time. Prince Harry and Princess Meghan have been doing publicity for a show that will air this weekend titled Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, a show that includes exclusive looks at their baby Archie. The show also airs their side of the couple’s fight against the tabloids while at the same time serving as a platform for their self-promotion. If the British tabloids treated anyone else outside of the royal family unfairly, would they also get an ITV Sunday night PR film to set the record straight?

If the royals want to use accusations of racism as a brush-back pitch, that might be one thing. Why Hillary feels the need to inject herself into that feud is impossible to grasp, unless it’s out of solidarity from one self-regarded royal to another.

SJWs Are Now Going After Dungeons & Dragons for a Very Stupid Reason

One of two things has to be true about social justice warriors and the things they complain about.

Either they’ve never played the games or experienced the media they’re “outraged” about, or they live so deeply in their own world that it puts them into a sort of psychosis, forcing them to see a “reality” that is starkly different from actual reality.

This happens with everything. Movies, video games, and comic books are all pegged by social justice warriors “racist,” or “homophobic,” or “sexist,” or “uninclusive.”

All of these claims are demonstrably false. Nerd culture specifically has been nothing but inclusive, seeing as how nerds have always been a subculture that has almost been forced to stick together. People forget that before being a nerd became cool in the present day, being one meant you were going to be the target of ridicule and, likely, a little bit of violence. Nerds found their clique because companionship is needed, in part, for their own sanity.

One thing nerds loved to do is play Dungeons & Dragons and, wouldn’t you know it, just like every other thing nerds hold dear, it’s now come under attack by the SJW crowd too for being “uninclusive.”

By Gygax, the claims by this woman are ridiculous by the premise alone.

When it first became popular, people thought it was some kind of demon worship. It wasn’t, but it was also looked down on as incredibly nerdy. Over time, the game became more popular, and despite the fact that there are video games that allow you to play games like D&D without all the dice rolling and math, it still remains a popular game to play today.

I should know, as I’m one of those nerds who like to play D&D.

I like it because it becomes more than just a game. You’re hanging out with your friends, drinking, and joking around while you use your imaginations to solve problems and create stories on the fly. What’s more, all of the D&D games I’ve played, with the exception of one, had a mixed bag of people.

Men, women, lesbians, Hispanic people, black people, right-wing, left-wing, and more have all been in my D&D sessions. Like most nerdy things, there’s such a wide array of people involved in it that the word “uninclusive” has never been something I’ve associated with it.

I’ve never, in my life, seen someone forming a D&D group say that someone wasn’t invited because of what they were born as. Not once. Ever.

I’m not saying it hasn’t happened, and perhaps this woman has been excluded from games before, but I’m willing to bet it was because of one of two things. Perhaps it was because it was a group of men wanting to form a men’s only game, which is perfectly fine. Men and women should be able to form groups of exclusively men or women if they so choose.

Or second, and most likely, this woman is an annoying bore who is so caught up in identity politics that the group just didn’t want her around, killing the buzz.

And fair enough.

But this is more than just one woman. This is the BBC making this claim that D&D is uninclusive. Why?

Because social justice politics demands it has a seat at every table, no matter what that table is, in order to force anyone at that table to act and speak a certain way. While they’re attempting to force Dungeons & Dragons players to adhere to the rules of social justice etiquette, they’re also in the sports world, attempting to force football players to do the same.

This isn’t just a take over of nerd culture, it’s a takeover of the culture, period. Nothing is safe, everything will be attacked. Everything is up for infiltration and alteration.

This is what SJWs do. It doesn’t matter if their excuses for doing so are demonstrably false.
