Elitist Architects Want Notre Dame Rebuilt to Reflect New Globalist France

“Its burning feels like an act of liberation”.

Published

on

Elitist architects reacted to the fire which tore through Notre Dame by arguing that the rebuilding should not reflect “white European France.”

In a Rolling Stone article entitled How Should France Rebuild Notre Dame?, the cathedral is denigrated as “a deep-seated symbol of resentment, a monument to a deeply flawed institution and an idealized Christian European France that arguably never existed in the first place.”

“The building was so overburdened with meaning that its burning feels like an act of liberation,” said Patricio del Real, an architecture historian at Harvard University.

To describe a horrendous fire that almost completely destroyed the historic cathedral had firefighters not rescued it just in time as “an act of liberation” is completely callous.

The writer of the Rolling Stone piece agues that the rebuilding of Notre Dame should not reflect “a non-secular, white European France,” but should instead be “a reflection of the France of today, a France that is currently in the making.”

This view is echoed by Cesare Birignani, assistant professor at the Spitzer School of Architecture, City College of New York, who says that the previous restoration of the cathedral, which sought to keep it as true to its origins as possible, represented “an idealized version of French history that arguably never existed in the first place.”

What are they going to do, put a crescent moon on top of it? How about surrounding it with minarets? Will that be politically correct enough?

“The idea that you can recreate the building is naive,” says John Harwood, an architectural historian and associate professor at the University of Toronto. “It is to repeat past errors, category errors of thought, and one has to imagine that if anything is done to the building it has to be an expression of what we want — the Catholics of France, the French people — want. What is an expression of who we are now? What does it represent, who is it for?”

Modernist architects with these kind of warped ideas shouldn’t be allowed within a mile of Notre Dame.

University of Washington Professor Says SpongeBob Squarepants is “Racist” and “Violent”

Truly nothing is safe.

Published

on

A professor at the University of Washington wrote an academic article denouncing SpongeBob Squarepants as “violent,” “racist,” and “insidious.”

Yes, really.

Professor Holly Barker’s tirade against the yellow cartoon character was published by an academic journal called The Contemporary Pacific: A Journal of Island Affairs.

In it, Barker argues that the show’s fictional location of Bikini Bottom is unfair because it is based on the nonfictional Bikini Atoll, a coral reef in the Marshall Islands used by the U.S. military for nuclear testing during the Cold War.

“The indigenous people of the area were relocated during the testing, which eventually rendered the area uninhabitable due to residual radiation,” writes Celine Ryan. “Barker finds it unjust that SpongeBob and his pals be allowed to “occupy” the area when the nonfictional indigenous people of the area do not have the option to return to their homeland.”

Barker argues that SpongeBob has privilege because he is an “American character” who can go about his life care free without having to worry about the detonation of nuclear bombs.

This equates to “symbolic violence” because SpongeBob and his friends are perpetuating injustices against the indigenous people of Bikini Atoll by occupying the territory.

“SpongeBob’s presence on Bikini Bottom continues the violent and racist expulsion of Indigenous peoples from their lands (and in this case their cosmos) that enables U.S. hegemonic powers to extend their military and colonial interests in the postwar era,” wrote Barker.

No, you’re not reading the Onion.

And if Professor Barker is reading this; Get over it, it’s a fucking cartoon.

Oak Park Trustee Susan Buchanan: “You Are a White Male! Shut Up!”

Bizarre rant caught on camera.

Published

on

Oak Park trustee Susan Buchanan told her male colleagues, “you are a white male….so shut up!” during a board meeting on racial equity.

Buchanan, who is white, even lectured a Palestinian migrant, Oak Park Mayor Anan Abu-Taleb, telling him, “Your skin is light enough. Stop it!”

The outburst prompted a round of applause from citizens who attended the meeting.

“You have been white from birth,” Buchanan told fellow trustees Dan Moroney and Deno Andrews. “Why are you arguing what is a system of oppression? You’ve never experienced one, so shut up! I don’t want to hear from you! Just stop Dan, just stop Deno. You are not oppressed and people in Oak Park and we are trying to recognize that as a community.”

“We have a chance to make history. It is time for this community to face equity. Enough! And you stop it! You are a white male! You stop it, you are a white male!” she added.

The discussion was centered around a proposal to update the board’s diversity statement.

One of her colleagues tried to argue, commenting, “I think if we reduce these conversations to ‘nobody cares because you are a white male,’ I don’t think we’re doing this right.”

“I’m so tired of hearing two white men tell us what systems of oppression are,” Buchanan said. “This is like if you guys wanted to tell us what it’s like to have a menstrual cycle.”

Because in a meeting focused on anti-racism, it’s not hypocritical at all to silence someone because of their skin color.

Maybe Buchanan should take a look in the mirror before being so racist as to think she speaks for people of color.

“Had Buchanan been a conservative who held views like those of Patrick J. Buchanan, she would be hounded out of office for going on a “racist tirade” against a “Palestinian immigrant,” comments Chris Menahan.

“Had she made the same comments and replaced “white” with “black,” her outburst would be the top story in the country and she’d be facing criminal charges for ethnic intimidation.”

“Instead, because she’s a liberal white woman, the local media ran cover for her, the national media ignored the story, and she instead received applause and succeeded in forcing through her BS virtue signaling statement.”

Meanwhile, the whole farce reminds us of this classic…
