AGBell: His First Collegiate Degree

agbl-logo-768x679.png
“….the fact remains that the first collegiate degree received by the famous inventor of the telephone came from the National Deaf Mute College.”-[Atwood, Gallaudet College: It’s First One Hundred Years]
 
Red flag. What does it mean Alexander Graham never received a formal college degree nowhere–but only National Deaf Mute College? What does it mean? Is that why Gallaudet University is still Audist? What kind of profiting is that? Bell’s contribution becomes top secret in Gallaudet’s money. What does it mean when a college degree becomes guarantor of audist-class existence?
 
We need to be vigilant and resist against Audist mazes. The million question: Who awarded Alexander Graham Bell the degree? Was it Edward Miner Gallaudet?
 
We need to be vigilant and resist the mazes of Audism.

Greatest Mistake….

Today in 2017, Deaf people are continually battered and harassed by discrimination, injustice and hate by Alexander Graham Bell’s policy which is the greatest mistake…..

The Sinister Life and Celebrated Death of Alexander Graham Bell

The Hidden Hand: Hate in Deaf Community

 

 

be54be5309f4d879c5d44663120a43c6--maureen-ohara-maureen-osullivan.jpg

Every year, on Saint Patrick’s Day, my grandparents would watch their favorite movie, 1952 “The Quiet Man” because Maureen O’Hara and John Wayne were their favorite actress and actor. Plus, it was filmed in Ireland. As they say, “Erin Go Bragh!” [Ireland forever]

Then I learned later that John’s name was not his birth name. He was born as Duke Morrison. I also learned that he was hungry for supremacy. That does not fit Hollywood’s image. I learned that the other night about a year ago that it has happened in California, a Republican congressman was attempting to make a special honor called “John Wayne Day” held in May and the Democrats came out protesting strongly against the idea. The bill failed because they hold zero tolerance policy against Racism and hate. That is what we all should do the same thing. How do we feel about white supremacy?

When you see an image below, John Wayne actually said that in 1971 Playboy magazine interview below. University of Virginia wrote about John Wayne, “Wayne has grossed more than $400 million for his studios–more than any other star in motion-picture history. But because of his uncompromising squareness–and his archconservative politics–he was still largely a profit without honor in Hollywood.”

-1.jpg

Now, can we do something about Audism and hate? What about those hearing actresses and actors who are pretending to be Deaf in the big picture front of Deaf eyes? Why are Deaf people rejected as an aspiration to a world in which all forms of inequality and dehumanization among ourselves that allows a society to oppress Deaf people who have plenty of talent out there?

Some people would say that a degree of “diversity” is a wonderful thing, but within certain demographics it has continue to practice the old, dirty politics, and there are plenty of people in this or that minority culture for whom the old-fashioned non-cultural politics is more relevant. For most people of any group, including the minority groups, the specifically diversity issues are actually a small proportion of the actually important yet invisible issues affecting Deaf people anywhere.

Should Audism be “extinct” in Deaf community, in the sense that the public eye of Alexander Graham Bell is quite welcoming to anyone Deaf. This is not always true. Struggle with sign languages everywhere, communication and personal appearance exists in the term subtle diversity in the society. In Canada, more specifically, Nova Scotia “NS” in ASL— 12 years ago in the legislative Act of 2005, the honor created “Alexander Graham Bell Day” where they celebrate his achievements on March 7th every year ever since and it has became a personal insult for the Deaf community.

While the only Alexander Graham Bell Day in the world, Canada is the front runner and they should get rid of it. One day they will. Do not wait too long. Celebrating Alexander Graham Bell Day is like creating a massacre filled with laughter! What do you think when you see “education” first thing? It may be most complex noun of all. It means, “to train someone for what?”—And it is a teacher-centered, not student-centered. If a teacher thinks a Deaf pupil is better off speaking, then the pupil is really stuck.

I strongly believe in student-centered learning and teaching (peer-teaching) is best of the best for the Deaf as they often teach each other. That is what a Deaf culture is supposed to be. Paulo Freire once said, “The teacher acts and the students have the illusion of acting through the action of the teacher.

Deaf people are not part of inventory or investment! Is ASL suffering language bigotry? What do we mean Audism when we say that an oppressor usually a hearing person believes a given proposition about the Deaf? We all need to be outspoken promoters of social justice and  defender of the oppressed! We need to follow a good example what California did and support Deaf Canadians to get rid of AGBell’s Day! So, do you think we should remove all the ranks of Audism in public eye? Alexander Graham Bell’s 1884 hate speech:

We should try ourselves to forget that they are deaf. We should try to teach them to forget that they are deaf.”-Alexander Graham Bell, 1884.

Cite: Ladd, Paddy. Understanding Deaf Culture: In Search of Deafhood. Page 129.

Isn’t Bell doing exactly the same thing what John Wayne said about, I don’t believe giving authority and positions of leadership and judgement to irresponsible people…—AGBell’s speech was instructed to teach Deaf people to hate their own “identity” and forget their existence as the state of being Deaf and lose all the ranks of leadership just because Deaf people are viewed as socially inferior and ‘irresponsible’ people. AGBell was really afraid. The dark side of AGBell has been revealed. His leadership is now weak. The evolution of FEAR begins.

After all, that is the worst massacre created by Alexander Graham Bell and its followers. There may be more reasons behind that. On the left bottom corner, the postage of Alexander Graham Bell–look at his fists. He was so charged to attack Deaf community. That’s the hidden hand, folks!

-1.png

Lastly, Wayne’s words, “Our so-called stealing of this country from them [Native Americans] was just a matter of survival.” What an asshole! Generally speaking for “matter of survival” would be any incident where Deaf people would be oppressed by another and the perpetrating group has the control of power.

The stories told by Deaf people becomes the collective journey and how their struggles and circumstances meet with the full use of force. In other words, if people agree that AGBell created a massacre for power, politics, hate, and the oppression ranks, then it meets our criteria.

It makes him less human. His primary goal was to destroy the survivorship of ASL and Deaf people. That makes Bell a bigger asshole. What is so funny right now? Well, I have this book, A**holeolgy The Cheat Sheet: Put the Science into Practice in Everyday by Chris Illuminati sitting on the bookshelf; I saw a perfect introduction from the book: The Ten Demandments of Being an Asshole.

  1. The asshole cares about the asshole the most.
  2. The asshole is always right.
  3. The assholes rarely apologizes.
  4. The asshole never accepts the word “no.”
  5. The asshole is always in control.
  6. The asshole always has a plan.
  7. The asshole takes what he wants.
  8. The asshole always look good.
  9. The asshole learns from his (few mistakes)
  10. The asshole is always evolving.

I rest my case.

Did AGBell Take the Possession of Deaf Community Out of Lincoln’s Words?

LincolnHead.jpg

Fighting hate. Teaching tolerance. Seeking justice. All those years I’ve read books about Abraham Lincoln. I visited Lincoln Memorial many times. I visited Lincoln’s summer retreat. I’ve visited Ford Theatre. I’ve visited Petersen House. The only place I did not get to visit Springfield, Illinois, the birthplace of Lincoln. Not yet.

Few days ago, I just completed reading a book about Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, the great debate between them. Douglass was Lincoln’s personal adviser that Lincoln himself had the biggest change of heart all because of Douglass. Thanks, Douglass!

First, I would like to talk a little more about Alexander Graham Bell. He was a professional thief. He stole the phone idea. He stole written lines from influential people, for example, stealing the line from Helen Keller. Look between Keller and Bell’s lines. Disclaimer: Keller said it first WAY before Bell claimed it was his. So easy to see this!

Keller’s line: “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”

Bell’s line: “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”

So obvious!

He stole Deaf people’s life. How? Did AGBell copy the idea from Lincoln’s 1858 quote? Let’s take a serious look at those similar speeches between Lincoln’s 1858 hate speech and AGBell’s 1883 hate speech. First, let’s take a look at AGBell’s hate-filled words first:

Those who believe as I do, that the production of a defective race of human beings would be a great calamity to the world, will examine carefully the causes that lead to the intermarriages of the deaf with the object of applying a remedy.”

I must warn you this that the quote by Lincoln you are about to read will be graphic that may make your skin crawl. This quote was the most racist and hate language you would see anywhere from Lincoln [seriously!] and I was very surprised what I read with my own eyes. I was in total disbelief. Lincoln’s words:

I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races—that I am nor ever have been in favor in

making voters or jurors of negroes, or of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”—Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) 16th President.

Yes, yes, yes, Lincoln really said that! Were you surprised? Admit it.

Source: Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858. [The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume III, pp. 145-145]

I am sure that Lincoln may be very much regretted to say this. Few years later, Lincoln toured several Civil Wars, he saw the great pain in Black soldiers who were severely injured, killed, became whether North nor South soldiers became Deaf and the hollow ground that fights for democracy. Stories became Lincoln’s stories. I am also sure that Frederick Douglass who stood strong and believed that Lincoln would have the change of heart after realizing that being a racist is not the pivotal answer and he knew that hate do not win at all costs.

slide3.gif

Douglass saw a great potential in Lincoln who took the greatest power to overthrow hate. That took a REAL MAN to stop being racist and believed in equality. You do not see that like that often. That is why Lincoln supported the idea of 13th Amendment—and abolishes slavery for good all because of the mistake he said in 1858. It shows that Lincoln believes in returning the favor out of love. That’s really big! Love trumps hate. (Tsk. Tsk. Wonder who it reminds me of?)

AGBell loved Lincoln’s racist idea to make him fame and infamous and saved for the best to attack Deaf community. Did you ever wonder that AGBell may get the idea from Lincoln? Just sharing thoughts on this.

AGBell did not own up and apologize and show that it is important to continue practice hate against Deaf people. Did you ever wonder why there is not a single photograph of AGBell and a Black Deaf person together in same photo? Was AGBell a hardcore Racist? That is exactly why AGBell believes in continuing slavery. Same way. Again, hate does not win. Lincoln was honest about his mistake. AGBell will never admit his mistake. Can Racists become better people in the future? Who was better person? What about Audists?

We need to fight hate against AGBell. We need to teach tolerance against AGBell. We need to seek justice against AGBell. Every inch of human cost. The bottom line is that Lincoln overthrew Racism. AGBell did not overthrow Audism because he was at the level of false hope. That’s where it went the wrong way. Oops.

Whenever you visit Cap City for the first time or visit the city again, be sure to visit Tower of Books. Since Lincoln’s death in 1865, about 100 books every year has written about President Lincoln, the most popular president in American history. That’s over 15,000 books already written about Lincoln. If you want to see the Tower of Books, you need to visit Petersen House first before see it. Let’s write 15,000 books about how AGBell fucked Deaf community up.

ASL: The Meaning of ‘Justice for All’

Washington-DC-Wood-Flag-7_1024x1024.jpg

There are millions of visitors who visit District of Columbia, the nation’s capital. What I did not realize that today on this date, July 16, 1790 when DC was picked as nation’s capital while the first American president, George Washington signed The Residence Act that made a city.

There are indeed still consequences in today’s Deaf community. The fracturing of the social media takes a larger scope and understands that it is not OK to attack Deaf community.

District of Columbia’s motto: Justia Omnibus, which means Justice for All. When President Abraham Lincoln signed the bill to create higher education for Deaf people: National Deaf Mute College (Now Gallaudet University) in Washington, DC; Deaf people have the right to carry rightful justice that they have every aspect of human right to use sign language for communication, knowledge, and information. That was the main topic. Simple.

The creation of the university was built by many stories you cannot imagine how much it meant to them. DC was only 74 years old city when Gallaudet University founded. As Alexander Graham Bell was 17 years old living in Scotland that time, did you ever think what would AGBell think about that day, 8th April, 1864? Did his father or grandfather tell him the news? Did AGBell have a plan to destroy “all for justice” policy and erase sign language in favor for oralism? Was it the plan to preserve Bell family’s name and legacy to destroy an American motto at what highest cost possibly be?

Exactly 100 years after the founding of nation’s capital, AGBell had the nerve to set up American Association to Promote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf now known as Volta Bureau, AGBell’s headquarters in the same city. AGBell challenged Edward Miner Gallaudet on the sacred ground of Gallaudet University that can be found in a book, Never the Twain Shall Meet by Richard Winefield. Help ourselves understand. The American democracy is not easily misunderstood.

With-Liberty-And-Justice-For-All-Tattoo-Design-1.png

Justia Omnibus, is an American motto, which means NO ONE CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM DEAF PEOPLE in 1880 and the next 100 years today. AGBell do not have the authority to prioritize and revoke all for justice in Deaf community’s favor of ASL.

The District of Columbia gave Deaf people a life to grow and teaches that justice for all to overcome Audism at Gallaudet University. Why cannot the Board of Trustees [BoTs] flesh out all the connections between AGBell’s headquarters and the university for dirty money? Make it ASL/Deaf-centered, ASL/Deaf-controlled, and ASL/Deaf-oriented. What’s wrong with that? Today, we will stand by human rights to use ASL—Justice for All! Justia Omnibus! ASL wins!

Happy birthday, DC! ASL JUSTICE FOR ALL.

Can We Stand Together Against Hate?

ea80bb2b-ed9e-42e9-aec2-e5d99a8ac646-Solidarity2.PNG

Alexander Graham Bell (AGBell) wants to normalize hate ideology. Many parents of Deaf children fell prey to his tactics. AGBell is a hate group in many eyes. American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture has been threatened through horrifying words invoking the truth.

We need to send a strong message to AGBell loyalists who encourage hate/violence and stop them by using Internet platforms as weapons of intimidation. We also need to help ASL community who will be targeted by hate and discrimination in AGBell’s Regime. Do you agree that AGBell, the number one in leading hate against Deaf people?

Enough of AGBell followers to intimidate ASL/Deaf culture. How many AGBell chapters in America today? AGBell is a dangerous breed and a huge reactionary agenda. Remember the justice that we have human rights to use ASL anytime.

Chris Haulmark: Where is the Values of Integrity?

IMG_2926.PNG

Yes, I was well aware that Chris Haulmark is a Democrat at first; which was a big joke. Why did I write that Chris is a Republican in the first place? Because, his way of thinking and values are exactly what the Republicans are today. There is no way that Chris has blue blood in his veins.

I grew up in a Blue blood family and can see a Democrat when I see one. Chris is not even that close. He would dehumanize Deaf people by proclaiming them unworthy of the least consideration as human beings. This is precisely how Trump got Republicans to accept the corruption and bullying. Once Chris have “successfully” enshrined the idea of a class of Deaf people justly denied any rights, then Chris set the bar who fits that class. In fact, Chris registered his home address in Arkansas, not Kansas—by possibly using someone else’s fixed address in Kansas. Is it even legal?

IMG_2927.PNG

Once running for U.S. Congress seat, it is not even funny business that everything has to be valid and trustworthy in order. I mean, I am talking about United States Congress seat! His press releases and goals—not an inch to talk about criminal justice reform as Democrats are strongly encouraged about it. See the difference?

Plus, Chris does not have any political experience even in American Deaf community. None! The only experience he has is from Alexander Graham Bell freaks. It was quite a comedy show what Chris was putting on and made a fool out of himself. Bullying and pathological lies are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Once the alien is created, it is all but impossible to control it.

Knowing this is the worst part. Awareness of one’s lack of freedom does not make one any less confined, just as the awareness of one’s drowning does not make one any less of a drowning person, it only adds the burden of panic. I do believe in second chances for Deaf returned citizens to rebuild their life and change their ways.

Although what Chris did by “destroying” my reputation as an invited speaker for Deaf Protest, it was a long term damage and Chris wreak on Deaf people, especially when they were vulnerable, is too heinous and his callous narcissistic attitude toward Deaf returned citizens and society is too dangerous. Haulmark offers a glimpse of an answer here: It is OK to preach hate against certain of Deaf people he thinks he knows everything. We need to keep up patterns of his irrational thoughts and behavior that have questioned for most of its existence.

I have seen how Chris’s attitude towards Deaf people with full of hate. He is not even qualified to run in United States Congress. Not even as a Democrat at this matter, too. Haulmark’s agenda and goals were a total joke, which indicates both a streak of lack of idealism and practical politician’s value of compromise. He enjoyed his vacation in Mexico and had to escape from America for time being as the “snitch” on the ‘program’ and he chose to do that—figure that out, will you?

After all, Chris Haulmark’s speech will live in infamy. Chris is throwing gasoline on a dying controversy for motivated political gain to help Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in fame. This man is not qualified for a political seat at all.

Chris Haulmark for United States Congress Seat

ASL Is Not A National Disgrace

n-PLEDGE-OF-ALLEGIANCE-628x314.jpg

TETRA IMAGES VIA GETTY IMAGES

Alexander Graham Bell 2014 Volta Award winner, Ann Geers of the University of Texas at Dallas makes a damaging article that Deaf children who are cochlear implant users who do not NEED to learn American Sign Language in April 2017 report.

Geers has no right that she thinks ASL is not important or necessary. In fact, a growing body of biased research acknowledged by Alexander Graham Bell Association has shown that the face of hate, bigotry, Audism, and pure evil. This is the face that AGBell looks in Deaf children’s eyes and tells the world that they are going to do about it by eliminating ASL and use listening and speaking instead. This is un-American!

It is completely rubbish that in Geers’ words:

The findings are clear. Children who did not use sign language had better speech and language skills by statistically margins at 36 months postimplant, and these children also developed better spoken-language and reading skills near the end of elementary grades than children who used sign language.”

Karl White is the most ignorant, hidebound and Audist in recent American history is the perfect face of hate. It is time for Karl White to get off his high horse. The self-righteous White stated that despite the fact he supported Geers’s findings. White’s report along with Louis Cooper, ‘Opportunities and Shared Decision-Making to Help Children Who Are Deaf to Communicate’ in June 2017 report that would make your stomach sick.

maxresdefault.jpg

In fact, Karl White, who now believes that he makes decisions for Deaf children at his own authority—why is ASL subjected to a national disgrace and makes sure Deaf children would live with their now very public humiliation for the rest of their lives if they subject to the rules not to learn ASL or face punishment?

In my opinion, Ann Geers and Karl White brutalized Deaf children again and again—again, again, again—again, again—again. It smacks of Tabloidism! What happened to the legal and moral obligations set out by RESPECT ASL?

We all need to be aware that ASL is a productive member of society, believe it or not. White, Geers and the supporters of Alexander Graham Bell who believes ASL is bad and they need to take a serious look in the mirror because if we as an ASL society cannot move past this then why even try to destroy ASL in the first place? It is pure hate! Enough of placing ASL in national disgrace!
