Colonization of Deaf America

no-evil-skulls-halloween-decoration~13810900.jpg

The root of hatred is still there. Alexander Graham Bell Association never formally issued an apology in front of the Deaf community for what they have done to our Deaf citizens including Indigenous Deaf people and to our culture and language.

Where is the formal written letter? Where is the video message provided with subtitles in front of millions of Deaf people? Where is the article being published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the major news outlets apologizing to the Deaf community? It is not going to happen. Why? They are guilty of a hate crime.

The Deaf community is being on the brink of being eliminated. It had been in North America for centuries and centuries. That’s the colonization of Deaf America and that is what Alexander Graham Bell wants to eliminate the Deaf community.

Laurent Clerc helped Deaf America since he first arrived in 1816; Truth be told that Alexander Graham Bell had been attempting to take away rights in the face of exploitation have been at the heart of hate crime targeting Deaf people from all walks of life.

The marginalization of the Deaf community had been targeted everywhere in social life. Deaf citizens had been suffering and unable to exercise capacities in social ways. Alexander Graham Bell was born in 1847 on the third day of March, and the economics of AGBell had been honored for the legacy of the oppressive system.

Nothing could be further from the truth, given that AGBell’s hatred of the Deaf people is the product of violent oppression by the hearing supremacy. The invisibility still carries around the Deaf community, and the colonization continues to attack the political, social, values, knowledge even in the worst colonized mind possible.

AGBell would be the most admired person to weaken the status of the Deaf community even in 2020 today. The neglect of the Deaf community leaves them severely wounded, cutting off access to the truth, and the practices of hatred send a powerful message.

When a campaign partners up with Alexander Graham Bell Association, “makes them possible and even acceptable. What makes violence a phenomenon of social injustice and not merely an individual moral wrong is its systematic character, its existence as a social practice, its legitimacy” –[Young, I. (1990). Justice and the politics of difference.]

It is scary enough that goes too far enough that the structural elements of colonization in the Deaf community are what it is being introduced into the power gain far more destructive more than the Deaf community really understands. It is a human crisis.

The legacy of Alexander Graham Bell is dangerous. Even the self-directed “agreement” of the Deaf community is far vulnerable to give Alexander Graham Bell Association more access to the exploitation.

Rush Limbaugh: Medal of Ignorance

2780.jpg

One of the worst hate-mongers in history, Rush Hudson Limbaugh III would be the first bilateral cochlear implant user to receive the Presidental Medal of Freedom. Correct? His general sentiments would mock Deaf people countless times before becoming “Deaf” which would be instant karma. Is it not a good penalty? 

So stupid that he couldn’t even graduate from college. He does not deserve the title as being ‘Famous Deaf people’ because Rush Limbaugh is not a valuable Deaf member in the Deaf community and has nothing to do with the Deaf culture even if he has a cochlear implant. 

The cochlear implant industry is profit-motivated and would collect profits above the well-being of Deaf people. For example, Oralism, eugenics, AGBell, the anti-ASL campaign, and of course, CI industry–all connected. There are thousands of stories about CI users who have derived little or no benefit from the implants at all. 

While Rush Limbaugh, one of the worst bigots in America, that practices the society’s minds, sending the wave of hatred the same way by mistreating the Deaf community and he is getting the Medal of Freedom is indeed sad and humanely differentiated; Sharing the propaganda of the greatest likelihood of success in cochlear implant industry. 

Rush Limbaugh: “We want everybody to succeed. You know why? We want the country to succeed, and for the country to succeed, its people – its individuals – must succeed.” 

Want to make a bet that the same Rush Limbaugh has strong connections with the Oberkotter Foundation in any way? Limbaugh who would often make a lot of hate-filled comments targeting minorities as a radio-host in the decades of hostility, the approach in which the brutality of the Deaf community has been exposed more than ever before. A word of caution, a life of bitterness can leave Rush Limbaugh empty and shallow.

Cochlear implant industry and Oberkotter Foundation makes a deal to rake in millions, millions, and millions “blood” dollars so freely to dehumanize the Deaf community of ideas, events, and organizations that have produced a set of mob mentality against the legal right of being Deaf. Where is the freedom for the Deaf community? 

In 1992, Rush Limbaugh makes a comment: “The poor in this country are the biggest piglets at the mother pig and her nipples. The poor feed off the largess of this government and they give nothing back.” [“The way things ought to be”, page 40] 

What a selfish asshole, right? The highest civilian, the Medal of Freedom. He was never part of the Deaf community. Period. Not even for the highest civilian. Limbaugh himself has been avoiding from the reality where all the things mean-spirited to not only a political figure but mock the Deaf community. We must end the perpetual punishment of cochlear implant industries.

There Is No Deaf Community

3.png

Dear Rachel Dubin,

You had been chosen to represent and protect Alexander Graham Bell organization in all costs, as you said, “There is no deaf community.”

Everyone Deaf is Deaf. It is healthy. It is beautiful. The truth for human existence and happiness.

You are sending a reactionary political climate to minimize the talents of the Deaf community, for one, American Sign Language (ASL) into the most exploited people in our society. It is clearly that you are being colonized.

The Deaf community had been shining their talents long before Alexander Graham Bell moved into Washington, D.C., 1876 and saw the opportunity to practice linguistic hegemony, hatred, and access to disrespect quality education of the Deaf to profit and exploit Deaf citizens in all costs.

The world’s first higher education of the Deaf known as Gallaudet University was founded in D.C. “Deaf Community”—yet, you are carrying the legacy of Alexander Graham Bell to make the Deaf Community as into Dysfunctional Community.

You have no right to say that there is NO DEAF COMMUNITY—What you are feeding is damage-inflicted self-hate.

You have no right to say that there is NO DEAF COMMUNITY—Deaf souls have been deprived from mental, social, linguistic, and physical capabilities.

You have no right to say that there is NO DEAF COMMUNITY—bullying, verbal or written abuse, humiliation, and public shaming.

We must focus on today—and tomorrow—because the ghost of Alexander Graham Bell continues to haunt the Deaf community, dealing with the hatred reaction and threats. “NO DEAF COMMUNITY” is a human threat. ASL is threatened.

You are doing a favor for Alexander Graham Bell organization with personal and social ill plaguing the Deaf community resulting from low self-esteem just like in 1884:

“We should try ourselves to forget that they are deaf. We should try to teach them to forget that they are deaf.”

While ASL and Deaf community does not exist like Dubin claimed, let’s take a look:

Pedagogy of the Oppressed. Paulo Freire:

“True generosity lies in striving so that these hands–whether of individuals or entire peoples–need be extended less and less in supplication, so that more and more they become human hands which work and, working, transform the world.”

ASL and Deaf community are raising self-esteem are less likely to become self-hate as Alexander Graham Bell policies. The Deaf community is the reason they are transforming the world. Rooting for everyone Deaf, sneak up on us in the middle of our ordinary lives, by the time you realize that you are wasting your time at Alexander Graham Bell’s mercy, attempting to destroy the Deaf community of the larger society, and, your message:

“THERE IS NO DEAF COMMUNITY” to an increasing extent, hate attacks have been more defensive, and the process by fearing rejection, befriend the Deaf community, is a life experience that can impact more negative consequence. The Domino Effect: Creating false images in social media.

Most importantly, Deaf community exists. Centuries and centuries. With probing intelligence, scholarly rigor, and humanist concern, the Deaf community continue to be at the forefront of the struggle to bring the voices of past and present users of ASL within distance of the rest of the world. Rooting for everyone Deaf.

Just like understanding of the past of all the Deaf, inside and outside Kendall Green. Our Deaf community is beautiful, the equal of any throughout the world in moral refinement, wherever it goes. The existence of the Deaf community will never recognize as fallen souls. I was once colonized by Alexander Graham Bell.

What Do AGBell and Columbus Have in Common?

It makes you wonder about those two men (Alexander Graham Bell and Christopher Columbus) who had practiced the greatest threat to human beings.
