Bombing and killing innocent people is not the solution. Religious bigotry: Enough.

Why Deaf Community Should Not Label ROAR as Hate Group

 

amygdala.gif

Hearing people, for example, hearing supremacists whose knowledge about Deaf people is the path of creating a hate crime where they usually experience blatant hate crime in which ignorance had aggressively gone behind the human consciousness what is called amygdala where the hate and fear created right there.

I would like to point out that Deaf community has no place to call ROAR (Reframing Our ASL Rights) a hate group. They are not even an expert. Not take a feather out of someone.

Creating an illegal activity toward such a group to target ROAR because ROAR does not believe in partnering up with Alexander Graham Bell (AGBell) that condone bigotry towards Deaf community for years and years.

ROAR believes in the strongest principle: American Sign Language (ASL)—and should not be vilified because of truth in the language that benefits many positive outcomes. The prejudices against ASL that strikes at the heart of state of being Deaf along its most vulnerable fault, for example, San Andreas fault.

I study hate crimes for 12 years and counting, and most often brings truth and knowledge by reading books, taking workshops about hate crime, hate speech, and hate groups, have shown strengths and weakness, even in Deaf community. As for Deaf community, hate groups is vaguely defined, and Deaf community has no place to call ROAR a “hate group” in the broadest sense of knowledge.

Since AGBell’s death in 1922, the bigotry towards ASL and Deaf people have continued to be reactionary in written hate literature about Deaf people. It takes years and years to understand what hate group really is about and it does not take one minute to make a statement that it is a hate group without knowledge. It does not work that way.

We need to understand the pledge to take a collective action to admit that AGBell was the scourge of hatred online—especially from the ideology of AGBell supremacists who increasingly use their lies to practice hate speech towards Deaf community whose their innocent lives has been claimed and stolen. It was not about data. It was about AGBell’s platform to magnify language bigotry and hate towards Deaf people today and tomorrow.

Today, the total of hate groups in America: 1,020—a huge jump in the last few years in the age of Trump. AGBell is the most invisible hate group towards Deaf people is also showing a weakness toward them as the world’s smallest minority and gain of hate groups in America.

Just like Deaf people are the world’s most invisible people where Deaf people has been experiencing a rising climate of hate because of bigots in AGBell’s divisions. The data only offers to hide the hatred ad how much it has been revoked and ignored, the truth is so much for all of us to do in order to become a stronger society to challenge hate practices, especially by AGBell.

Like I said, it does not take one hour to call out ROAR, as a hate group just because Deaf community thinks as an expert answer to label them is a big mistake. That is what culture of hate looks like—the assumption in many shapes and forms that does not meet the norm in the society. It is an act of character assassination.

There was never been anyone like Alexander Graham Bell in America. Never has leadership of AGBell been formed in so many conflicts of interest. Is it noticeable that so many questionable characters have filled it? And, until AGBell, Deaf community has never faced such a full-fledged attack on our most cherished principles: Protect ASL and state of being Deaf.

Clearly, I am disappointed that Deaf community thinks it is best to call ROAR, filled of Deaf people as good group, filled with ASL/DEAF-HEART to call them a hate group. That’s low. We should call AGBell as a hate group instead of belittling its own Deaf population.

In what ways did hate group define Deaf people to escape truth from language destruction? In what ways were those attempts to hide? We all need to remember the truth what AGBell has done with the lessons of the hate practices to continue genocide, language bigotry, and ideologically extremist, anti-Deaf, insensitive to ASL, is a big step to face the danger to Deaf people’s democracy in ASL and state of being Deaf.

Beginning with the AGBell administration, it has been nothing but all one—one-sided community: language bigots, and now, thanks in part to lies and distortions of hate-wing media, where AGBell has attacked Deaf people in social media with its base, they might have achieved its goals, and it starts with ROAR to stop the ideological practice of hate, and it is hardly a hate group. That is against the principle of ROAR’s democracy and it is called: truth to everything what Deaf community should stand for. Do not become puppets for AGBell.

On the final note, we can stop hate and opportunism from AGBell organization and it is without that AGBell is a hate group where plenty of corruption, back room deals even with the data. For 140+ years, AGBell has been the source of bigotry confronting Deaf America. Let’s stop the corrupt abuses of bullies like AGBell.

What made ROAR a hate group in the first place that believes in freedom for civilization? How can ASL protect themselves from AGBell’s lies, disinformation, and its enemies? Can Deaf community we live in return the most important question of all in our lives, to its trust-mongering roots to protect ASL and state of being Deaf in healthiest formula?

ASL: A Jedi Academy Story

38232d245cba75057f77c077459399c6--star-wars-themed-classroom-star-wars-school-theme.jpg

Happy Star Wars Day!

Sign Wars: A New Hope reminds Deaf community to continue and preserve sign language that ranks as one of earliest, dating to First Deaf Jedi story taught by Master Yoda, the wisest Jedi to train Deaf Jedi how to carry a new hope for Deaf community.

Master Yoda have seen that the sociological fact of a language hegemony in the majority or in the minority has very different effects on Deaf people.

It is amazing that sign languages around the world have taught Deaf people like a Jedi to preserve sign languages to stand against wars staged by Alexander Graham Bell Association and Oralism practices.

Gotcha! I was looking for something simple picture and found this, “Jedi Academy: The Phantom Bully” by Jeffrey Brown. It is a perfect metaphor for Deaf people to be trained by Master Jedi to challenge phantom bullies from Alexander Graham Bell Association. Jedi Academy will always preserve American Sign Language (ASL) and its world’s sign languages, no matter what. ASL is knowledge. Without ASL, no knowledge.

Imagine Yoda would explain to Deaf Jedi(s)—“A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.”

And that is where Yoda taught Deaf Jedi(s) to stand against hate practices by Alexander Graham Bell Association, “Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate…hate leads to suffering.”

When it is a majority, AGBell take their perspective. They narrow the truth Deaf community seek and how they ignore problems. Ignorance, is one of the most powerful forms of influence in English language.

When Deaf community faced with a minority, Deaf people share their stories to build stronger information and solve problems from the society’s point of view–not only the Deaf community as minority’s point of  view is challenging. It is one thing that Deaf community has been manipulated consciously daily and it is not even fair to them.

It is a problem for the quality of ignorance in society to discuss that applies the quality of the healing. How could ASL make progress toward a finish line if someone kept moving it as they continue to progress Deaf community for communication, information, and knowledge on the success of ASL today and tomorrow?

The upcoming movie will be shown this weekend, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is showing at movie theaters. It is going to be interesting and exciting movie to watch.

As Hans Solo once said, “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parasecs.”

Exactly! ASL is the millennium language in less than 12 parasecs! That makes ASL and Deaf community more unique and intellectual discourse to continue hope forever! Once again, thank you, Master Yoda!
