The article, “Dispelling Myths about Deafness” in response to Washington Post article about Nyle DiMarco written by Meredith Sugar, the President for Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing attacking Nyle DiMarco is a good example of hate speech and media slandering. The feeling of the media oppression by Alexander Graham Bell is not, for all that, the notion of the media oppression. It lays the foundations for it, and that is all. While the 1880 Milan Resolution was about hate crime, Alexander Graham Bell philosophy is to encourage the media slandering that practices hate speech. It is alive; in other words, it must stop or else reverberate through through every single place around the world.
Ludwig Wittgenstein writes, “the world is the totality of facts, not of things.” Meredith Sugar’s what it means to be “deaf” has changed—is a hate phrase is about things. She is unable to address an inescapable fact; Deaf people is about our being Deaf. The state of being Deaf, implies American Sign Language, the language and culture that is rejected a spurious, based on folks’ beliefs that ASL has no immediate system of rules and that if you make up a rule for it, saying that you can sign and talk at the same time, you have got a kind of hypothesis. It is more even unthinkable to imagine such the fact that Meredith Sugar will serve as our language and culture spokesperson, especially in Deaf community where the language oppression is reviewed and appraised daily. It is important to protest her hate speech.
Without Deaf people is therefore as anti-American as taxation without representation. Deaf people need the type of revolution that they must be addressed directly around the world with respect when they have their constitutional rights to use American Sign Language. Deaf people have been around since the dawn of the humankind, and their language and culture has yet to be articulated and facilitated properly and respectfully.
Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing as well as Meredith Sugar approve a show of hate speech by mocking and degrading Deaf children, what kind of message is that sent to the Deaf children and their families who struggle against hate speech and prejudice on a daily basis? What about the self-esteem of these Deaf children that are already demoralized by hate speech?
The hate speech must be stopped. Meredith Sugar has no standing at all. Her philosophy is ridiculous. To start with everything what Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing—start the protest anew, as this moment were your first and last. It is the lowest of the low what she had done. Stop harm Nyle, ASL and Deaf children’s primary language!
