How do we protect white people when many such people don’t care? The fad is self-abasement. The writer says “union members with a specific skin color would receive 50% of the vote, regardless of the number of members with that skin color! And the member who opposed this decision as being unfair was called racist!” Pure insanity. I lost my teaching job fighting race-based discrimination and slanting of education and history. I deeply appreciate the article.

It's just Marxism--the same tired (and potentially deadly) politics of resentment--in a new costume. Race and gender have replaced class as the criteria for victimhood, but the results are similar, and will get worse if we don't continue the fight. For people who have no God, this new form of Marxism takes on the characteristics of a new religion, which explains their often irrational zeal. I love what Flannery O'Conner said about this:

“If other ages felt less, they saw more, even though they

saw with the blind, prophetical, unsentimental eye of

acceptance, which is to say, of faith. In the absence of this

faith now, we govern by tenderness. It is a tenderness which,

long cut off from the person of Christ, is wrapped in theory. When

tenderness is detached from the source of tenderness, its logical

outcome is terror. It ends in forced-labor camps and in the fumes of

the gas chamber.”

Very moving article. Back in the 1990s, when I was compelled to take critical race and gender theory courses in order to get my bachelors degree in Communication Studies at Montreal's Concordia University, one of my profs - a young Asian woman - reviewed some material with the class and then added her thoughts: "Personally, I don't think racism will go away by guilting people about it and then applying reverse racism. Two wrongs don't make a right." I forget this prof's name but even if I remembered it, I would not publicize it. Because if she's still teaching at this university and is still making her views known, she won't be teaching there for much longer.

This is solid. The blame oriented victim-celebration culture of the Ontario school system is a genuine problem. Lets get to work with a pro human approach a fix it!

God bless Richard Bilkszto and his family.

One absolutely disgraceful thing is that the debacle in Ontario education is happening under a Conservative government. Where is the solution?

I have no faith whatsoever that Premier Ford, or any other politician will do or say anything. They are all intimidated and without courage or character. This is something that has been coming for a long time. I suspect there will be far more of this vile behaviour in our future, not to mention the violence that will be used to silence dissenters. With respect to education, the government needs to allow parents to pick the schools they want for their children, and send their not inconsequential tax contributions to that school.

Excellent article. But I think you mean systemically, not systematically.
