When a Deaf individual deny that Audism and oppression is happening at Illinois School for the Deaf that results in a failure to comprehend social responsibility to stand up against Audism. Never been Cued Speech been mired in so many conflicts of interest. Or one surrounded by so many questionable characters. And, until Audism occurred, it is not the same and no Deaf student shall never face a full-frontal attack on their most cherished democratic values: American Sign Language (ASL).  That is the step of a language hegemony.

This is not the America we know and love. Alexander Graham Bell-controlled Deaf Illinois—ideologically extremist, anti-ASL, insensitive to Deaf community, and hostage to Oralism—is a danger to their democracy.

Beginning with the ISD administration, the oppressors have been focused on establishing one-language rule—their own rules or face punishment. Now, thanks to in part to oppression restricting and ASL suppression, hate speech, the lies, and distortions of Oralism ideology, combined with the matrix of oppression that has lost touch with its base, they may think they’ve achieved. Wrong.

ASL means for the freedom of speech. It is their idea of democracy. It is an affront to everything ASL stands for. There is the language oppression pushing for the hate and opportunism wooing from Oralism and this Cued Speech practices. It is time to uncover the corruption, back-room deals, and Oralism greed that we need to know to resist Audism and oppression.

When a Deaf person witness and ignore Audism and oppression, we let the person know that our fearless concerns to carry social responsibility and stand up against hate speech and the corrupt oppressors of bullies like hearing supremacy. The idea of driving extreme oppression was an early warning signal that marked a new direction in Illinois Deaf community.

The truth is, Deaf community in Illinois is fighting an uphill battle to save their freedom of speech: ASL. Oralism has Alexander Graham Bell’s back, big business, and Cued Speech in its corner. But they have the truth. And that is a force to be reckoned with in these politically oppressive times. Remember Audism Unveiled DVD?

How much of oppression will survive the age of Illinois School of the Deaf? Why is oppression spying on Deaf community? Why did the administration elect Cued Speech in the first place? Can ASL survive oppressive climate? Can ASL help Illinois School for the Deaf face its brutal past? Is it possible for Illinois School for the Deaf devastated by Cued Speech to be brought back to life?

When a Deaf individual denying Audism, oppression and hate speech, the greatest strength against the corruption of Oralism is knowledge.
