Sean Spicer Whitewashes Deaf Holocaust Survivors and Victims

Unknown.jpeg

I am still in disgust what Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary said to the world, “Hitler didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”—To me, it is a human militarization language as well as whitewashing America. Do you realize that Spicer also used the violence of hate in denial that he confronts Racism, Anti-Semitism, and all kinds of bigotry in any kind of form?

Spicer also insulted all Deaf survivors and victims—hate crimes in Deaf community is one of the world’s most neglect symbols because it identifies the moment at which he creates white-washing and, in effective yet oppressive language, describe the reasons for growing pain for those Deaf people. As you know, Deaf people were the very FIRST people to be killed in a chemical weapon style. Yes, as in gassing people.

The Nazi campaign against the disabled people begun in 1933 with the passage by the Reichstag of the Law for the Prevention of Offspring with hereditary diseases. The conditions were mental illness, retardation, hereditary blindness, and hereditary deafness. 17,000 out of 375,000 people were Deaf people. 28% of 17,000 Deaf people were under the age of 18. Nine percent (9%) were women who were already pregnant. Hitler created an operation called T-4 where he wanted to see disabled people murdered because they were “life unworthy of life” Infants with disabilities were the first victims. (Gilbert, Jean. Deaf People in Hitler’s Europe. Gallaudet Today. September 1998.)

The word ‘forgotten’ itself is not hard to understand, defined in Webster’s Dictionary as “left unoccupied or unused” and it applies to the outbreak of the hate rhetoric. Deaf survivors of Holocaust, however, were united in supporting all the documents of living in society again.

Why do you think there are books such as Deaf People in Hitler’s Europe, Crying Hands: Eugenics and Deaf People in Nazi Germany, Surviving in Silence: A Deaf Boy in the Holocaust: The Harry I. Dunai Story, Deaf People in the Holocaust: The Extraordinary Story, Survival Artist: A Memoir of the Holocaust and other books were written, researched, and archived their painful stories is important to document?

Are Deaf people viewed as forgotten people? People who committed those actions against Deaf people has not charged with hate crime, wondering if Sean Spicer is ignorant, while most of Deaf survivors and victims are facing the most intense treatment than others, Spicer do not need to mimic Deaf community. After all, Spicer’s knowledge is heavily flawed.

This is a dangerous trend and the White House must not be allowed to let whitewashing get away with this. We cannot have a society that ignores hate crimes in the life’s most vulnerable direction.

Spicer needs to be fired. He does not deserve to be the White House Press Secretary. He failed homework. After all, he is the most uneducated puppet. He needs to visit Holocaust museum–it is like ten minutes drive from White House. Then once he visit the museum maybe he would say, “I need to realize why I am the White House Press Secretary in the first place” and do not JUDGE those survivors and victims!

Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Reich

Stop the Eye of Hate

Laurent Clerc Would Be Disheartened by Cochlear Implants

20080710-0011.jpg

Laurent Clerc. Gallaudet University.

Deaf people are one of America’s most important symbols because it identifies the moment at which the nation was born and, in effective yet complex language, describes the reason for its 200 years anniversary of Laurent Clerc’s arrival. America was only 40 years old when Clerc arrived on an American soil.

If you are offended by the cochlear implant industries that are attempting to take over Deaf community and want to understand how the lies on Earth can allow liars to escape from the truth, profit over Deaf people, while maintaining the highest rate of myths among Deaf children in the industrialized world. 

If you are alarmed that our planet will soon be inhospitable for civilization at the rate that they are attempting to wipe Deaf culture out and wants to know the steps we can take to reserve that trend. 

If you are concerned that the Deaf people soon at the brink of extinction because of cochlear implant industries, taking away the pursuit of happiness from them who need it most and that Deaf people are limited and the right to take their lives over. 

If you are agree that the deadly cochlear implant industries actions of industrialized, corrupt, and Audist forces go unchecked…

There was a five minutes movie on YouTube called Deaf Culture: VICE News Tonight on HBO [Full Segment] that was published on February 8th, 2017. Since the cochlear implant industries has closed people’s eyes to who is really profiting from lies, manipulating stocks, controlling Deaf people on earth, enslaving Deaf children, pulling strings in order to plump up their stock portfolios at your expense and mine.

If Clerc were alive today, he would fight for the voice of Deaf people for a powerful and passionate movement how to fight back for the human rights. For example, take cochlear implant companies debacle–there is an insurance company tactic called “rescission”–where sick policyholders were routinely dumped even if they never missed a premium payment. And while the cochlear implant industries has spread the lies to the millions of people, Deaf people has not been shy about airing the truth;

That America can do better, and, under insurance companies that become greedy and got too good to set up a deal. Let’s face it. The cochlear implant industries makes for comfortable armchair reading. That is because going into the backroom, the boardroom, and the cloakrooms to uncover for you the hard truths about who really controls power in Deaf community can be scary and infuriating.

But the cochlear implant industries refuse to regret knowing what they know now. Because once you’ve had the blinders removed, you’ll never want to be hoodwinked by their lies and sandbagged by the mainstream media, and snookered by powerful corporate interests feeding Alexander Graham Bell board members bullshit flaking for their profit or dirty or even blood money over Deaf people.

Fact. There is the smoke and mirrors you get from the most of the media today, and there is stronghold of Deaf people who fights against cochlear implant industries for the truth. Every step is a splash of cold water on the face.

Together today, we will fight for our democracy and human rights for Deaf people and American Sign Language (ASL), too. I am pretty sure that Laurent Clerc would do the same thing. 200 years later after Clerc’s historic arrival, Deaf Culture: VICE News Tonight on HBO [Full Segment] wrote in summary,

“Today, more than 40 percent of American children born deaf receive cochlear implants. The technology effectively restores hearing by bypassing the ear and delivering audio information directly to the brain. The vast majority of deaf children who are implanted develop hearing and speaking skills comparable to their hearing peers, thus allowing them the option to “mainstream” into normal schools.

Deaf education in the U.S. has gone through many phases. American Sign Language (ASL) is currently the dominant mode of instruction in deaf schools, but there have been periods where ASL was banned and students were forced to speak and lip-read, an ineffective approach known as oralism. ASL has now gained legitimacy and been shown to include the deep grammar and syntax found in spoken languages. It is also the wellspring of deaf culture, a proud community wary of historical attempts to assimilate them into a hearing world.

As more parents opt for cochlear implants, VICE News explores their impact on the medical condition that gave rise to a cultural identity.”

When the Nazi party came to power in Germany in 1933, Hitler was obsessed with racial purity with the idea that nature had created a superior Aryan race. There was 17,000 Deaf people were sterilized between 1933 and 1945. The youngest was nine years old. Deaf people in Hitler’s Europe were among those who were killed by the Nazis during the time because they were Jews, others because as congenitally Deaf people that they were considered ‘defective’ and ‘biologically inferior’ [Gilbert, 1998]

As a Deaf person and Deaf people I know, we have long suffered in silence enduring verbal attacks, physical attacks, and harassment why they and I did not get cochlear implant. As a result, hate crimes against Deaf people are largely under reported. Many Deaf people did not report crimes because of fear of being misunderstood. Deaf people face stigma daily, ASL is one tool, which may help them overcome communication issues but may not erase stigmatization.

A knowledge of history is extremely useful; it lays before our eyes the great picture of the generations that have preceded us; and in relating the events which passed in their time..it lays before us the precepts of the wise…of all ages…”- Laurent Clerc

Today, Laurent Clerc would be horrified by the attacks of cochlear implants.

AGBell’s House Shall be Demolished

IMG_0157.JPG

AGBell’s birthplace.

Yesterday, there was a headline about demolishing a house where Adolf Hitler was born—a birthplace in Austria. Yes, wise decision to do so! Time to heal—and I support the idea. I mean, after visiting United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. more than five times, it is mind-boggling and it makes you THINK what Hitler has done to Deaf people was fucking unbelievable—yet, Deaf people were in silence!  After reading few books, Deaf People in Hitler’s Europe, and Crying Hands: Eugenics and Deaf People in Nazi Germany was painful to read—it is exactly why bigotry and hate crimes had been recognized in Alexander Graham Bell’s (AGBell) hands.

Since AGBell’s time, he had devastated as the whole world and villages that had decimated Deaf people and forced them to walk into the deserts of pain. There are millions of scenes that have tragically become familiar again today by not recognizing enough hate crime in Deaf America. From I can remember those books, I have not seen a detailed story about Deaf people that suffer through hate crimes, the America we live in the shadows of freedom, time for us to prevent hate crimes in Deaf community, too. I must be an advocate for Deaf people who were survivors of AGBell.

Deaf People in Hitler’s Europe written by Donna F. Ryan and John S. Schuchmann, the book made an agreement with United States Holocaust Memorial Museum,

The fate of deaf people in Nazi Germany is a neglected aspect of the Holocaust. Certainly, few would think of them as Holocaust victims or survivors. In the United States, even in Germany, few were aware that during the Nazi era, human beings—men, women, and children—with impaired hearing were sterilized against their will, and even fewer know that many deaf people were also murdered. Under Nazi rule, they shared the fate of all persons with mental and physical disabilities. [Holocaust Studies and the Deaf Community, Henry Friedlander, Deaf People in Hitler’s Europe, p. 15]

I learned that there were an international conference held in Washington, D.C.—1998, called “Deaf People in Hitler’s Europe, 1933-1945”—I was only 23 years old that time living in Great Pacific Northwest.

The media continues to portray “uncalled” hate crimes in Deaf community so wrong is that they has successfully evolved hate speech into story-tellers to guide us to speculate or guess diverse modes of Audism. For example, as a kid I grew up into reading literature, Christopher Columbus thought that the world is flat and the stars revolve around the earth to determine our fate and future. The same future we live shall makes a difference and support Deaf people to minimize hate speech in our community.

If you read Deaf books, try to find why most of survivors who were living in AGBell’s hands, it is clear that they represent a new, important form of hate expression. They mark a fundamental shift in power away from public life dominated by invisible hate crime to dark cave, which now empowers the Deaf community. For example, the books reach places that Deaf community, as journalism cannot touch today.

With a Deaf fellow like myself, who was survivor of AGBell —his ideology was a fearful example of the damage wrecked by inbreeding leadership with Deaf community, is it painful to protest hate crimes against AGBell? The answer is yes! I believe that they should complain to start the healing process. The same Deaf community we live in, sets up us up to ignore the pain of Deaf people who were survivors of AGBell, so we need to turn against the oppression and question why it is still practiced today.

Can we dream that AGBell’s birthplace in Scotland be demolished? We are dreaming because we can see by dreaming a connection between premises and conclusions: we dreamed that we would solve a problem that we would read earlier then we would write down on it on the paper made out of tree, we found out that the conclusion does not follow from the premises in our dreams. As you can imagine, it must be painful to write a story about it. AGBell destroyed Deaf people was the exactly what Adolf Hitler destroyed Jewish people and others—including Deaf people.

Yet, it fails to mark a case that Deaf people experience of a hate crime, literature, or speech. It must be even more painful that people who are AGBell advocates are protesting the ignorance of Deaf American community. In the time of crisis, it is AGBell who holds out, by our very nature, the deepest vision of healing and peace that is possible for Deaf community.

Again, AGBell in Deaf community was biggest insult because Deaf people were not taught to be leaders for their own people—Deaf people. This is the reason they live in silence. We need to feel the wind more often. We relate to Audism nor hate crime in Deaf community as family and experience a bond within the same community, which is clearly unknown to you. We have different inner clocks and deal with time differently. Maybe you can remember the famous artist by Salvador Dali where the clock was melting. That is the most invisible trait that did not prepare us excellently enough for Deaf community to talk about it and easily labels us as intellectually vulnerable in our American society.

The media and newspapers are what you know: a modern of they-Adolf-Hitler. They use the recipe for using propaganda, fear, and scapegoats to convince the readers to go along with AGBell that is supposed to be the bureaucrat’s heaven. Not only Deaf people suffer, but also the Deaf community as a whole becomes more vulnerable. It is time to have AGBell’s birthplace DEMOLISHED house in Scotland and begin healing!

Thanks, friend for sending me the pictures of AGBell’s house. He was actually there in person. Oh, clocks are melting everywhere!
