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?

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

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.

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!

Who Coined “Deaf Studies” First?

Free Speech vs Hate Speech

Discussing between Free Speech as noted in United States Constitution First Amendment that allows hate speech which is a BIG PROBLEM today in America. Jeremy Joseph Christian who murdered two guys through HATE SPEECH on Metropolitan Area Express (MAX) in Portland, Oregon on May 26, 2017 thinks he has the “right” to provoke it based on FREE SPEECH. Intimidation makes him even weaker person.

 

 

No Human Rights Law Shall Expel ASL Ever

When I read all the letters Illinois Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (IRID) sent to the Honorable Julie A. Morrison, a senator for Illinois about SB0752 and HB1811.

IRID president, William Lee’s words: Requiring fluency in ASL does not need to be explicitly stated in the law in our opinion. It was a huge insult to ASL community that the power dynamics of Audism was allowed to oppress Deaf people. It is also a language hegemony. We do not need to deal with educational bankruptcy and struggle with human rights.

Illinois Association of the Deaf (IAD) followed up with Senator Morrison. I am deeply concerned about the ability of IRID to allow Audism against ASL. My concern has been compounded by the failure exhibited by the professionalism of interpreters to understand the nature of cross-linguistic and cross-cultural inquiry and the integrity of critical thinking in ASL.

President William Lee of IRID needs to look at these dismal facts portend a clear and present danger to the role of Deaf Education in the United States including Illinois that ASL is very important. Lee may filter this post out because it is about insulting Deaf people and witty put-downs of their language and culture. ASL that William Lee and the board of IRID should not continue to oppress.

I am sure just like Deaf students struggling to learn but getting nowhere without ASL, Lee has no business to fulfill his own desires and the best interests of Deaf community, never realizing that his effort is the problem, not the solution. His own insecurity is the motive to attack ASL and the best interests of Deaf community in Illinois for their language and culture.

Imagine this—can you imagine that for centuries Deaf people have suffered appalling language and culture abuses and the devastating consequences of educational and economic sanctions? Can you imagine that in a climate of language oppression, many Deaf students in Illinois would be neglected without ASL over the years in Lee’s words?
