Nyle DiMarco: Eugenics?

“Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will.” 

Fear has much to do with keeping reality the same as it always was–status quo–opening the way to the unknown is hard enough for many of us to accept. Are we not witnessing enough about the biggest social problem in the Deaf community? 

For example, eugenics. Why eugenics? It involves recruitment, transporting Deaf people into a trap of exploitation through the bullying, deception, genocide, and hate to practice against their will. 

Must the gain and loss in this social problem of the Deaf where the society continues to judge gain to be good and loss to be bad, but our nature–our language and culture. Without silence, there is no room for Deaf human beings. Without silence, there cannot be a real appreciation of Deaf people. 

However, in 1988: 

IMG_0788.PNG

Eugenics at Gallaudet University had been fear of the unknown. Genetic engineering, collecting DNA from Deaf people on the sacred ground of the Deaf, profiting them, setting up a cochlear implant center, and bastardizing ASL. 

First of all, it’s the system that is in total control. It starts with us, the Deaf people to fight against the systematic barriers. I am not against cochlear implant users, but I am against cochlear implants itself for many reasons. The cochlear implant is part of Eugenics. 

Please see the picture:

“A geneticist at Harvard Medical School is working on a dating app that matches users based on their DNA. The goal: to eliminate all genetic diseases.” 

Obviously, it is EUGENICS. No compassion. I would like to show you the two pictures written.

Notice how many times Nyle said about ‘we are being casual about eugenics’? Seven times. Exactly. Why?

IMG_0791.JPG

Paddy Ladd’s book, Understanding Deaf Culture: In Search of Deafhood, in chapter 6: he writes: 

IMG_0786.jpg

IMG_0787.jpg

“It has become clear, too, that the rapid growth of this contact, combined with the quality rapid growth in unexamined use of the Deaf culture concept, has created a situation in which Deaf cultural research is needed as a matter of maximum urgency. 

This urgency is increased by the resurgence of Oralism through the cochlear implant ideology, and the advent of genetics which is viewed by some of the ‘Final Solution’. The emergence of the latter threatens to compel Deaf communities to justify their continued existence and it can only be through a clear understanding of the benefits of Deaf culture to the wider society that such a justification can be framed.”

Cochlear implant ideology and genetics: Eugenics is white hearing supremacy’s biggest profitability ratios. Deaf people are being made to be casual about eugenics. Just like Nyle said: “White hearing people”.

Since Nyle called out Harvard Medical University for the practice of Eugenics. Why cannot Nyle call out Gallaudet University for the practice of Eugenics? Oh, wait, since Nyle is an outstanding ambassador for Gallaudet University, does that mean he has to be casual and silent about it? 

images-2.jpg

In 2003: Gallaudet University hosted a conference: Genetics, Disability, and Deafness Conference at Gallaudet University, and it actually happened. It was about breakthroughs in genetic engineering. 

Three years later in 2006, after the conference, the innovation of the cochlear implant center set up on the world’s sacred ground of the Deaf. What kind of investors has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into the innovation into genetic engineering and cochlear implants? What is the difference between genetic engineering and eugenics? 

“Controlled breeding”– That is exactly the EUGENICS. 

IMG_0776.JPG

I would like to share this five minutes YouTube video link below: “Hitler is Not Dead”

Isn’t Harvard Medical School and Gallaudet University doing the same thing by its highest goal to eliminate all genetic diseases, never mind the Deaf? 

Nyle DiMarco, an outstanding ambassador for Gallaudet University and for the Deaf community at large, would you have the balls to call out Gallaudet University for the practice of EUGENICS, too? Or, you are being casual? You said yourself in your own words:

“We are being casual about eugenics”

Harry H. Laughlin’s Hatred of Deaf People

Eugenesia-2.jpeg

Hearing supremacy is a hellavu drug. A mind filled with hatred speaks a sober heart. History did not teach us enough about haters that comes out of their mouth right into the public when they feel safe because of eugenics ideology. Not only that, but Whiteness is like a drug.

After I learned the history about Harry Hamiliton Laughlin, one of the staunchest supporters of eugenical research and policy in the United States in the first half of the 20th century, where Laughlin writes a letter to Professor Dr. Eugene Fischer, President of International Congress for the Scientific Investigation of Population Problems in 1935, responsible for the sterilization of Deaf people where the Nazi party filled with white supremacy loved his idea and used his model in 1933 to verbally and physically assault Deaf people by sterilization.

If it was in 2019, would Harry Laughlin be prosecuted for a hate crime? Would that be a prosecutorial slam dunk……but white privilege gets in the way. Wasn’t he possibly suffering from a lithium imbalance? Isn’t paranoia approaching severe personality disorder characterized by a constant suspicion that Laughlin have sinister motives against Deaf people?

When I learned about the history about Harry Laughlin through Equal Justice Initiative, one of my favorite organization, commented: “On this day [December 2nd] in 1922, eugenicist Henry Laughlin published the “model sterilization law” which encouraged lawmakers to develop more effective and “constitutionally acceptable” sterilization laws.” and realized that he was public enemy number one influencing American eugenics policy. That was where Alexander Graham Bell loved his idea.

The anger, and the arrogance towards innocent Deaf people Harry Laughlin did not know, and cannot fathom to understand this hatred. The damage control has been done. Laughlin who went after Deaf subjects for eugenic sterilization of personal power and a higher degree of self-esteem because it demonstrates that one feels good enough about himself to demand something better or higher from the world.

Harry Laughlin knew who Alexander Graham Bell, the leading eugenicist in the Deaf community who would publish articles on hereditary ‘Deafness’, and they were responsible for the destruction of the Deaf community.

Imagine if Harry Laughlin and Alexander Graham Bell who sit together in order to spew hatred towards Deaf people. Wake up! Inside the media propaganda is yet another effort to dismantle the Deaf community. Or, another effort to deter intellectual freedom to all the Deaf?

Would they really understand the painful history what Harry Hamiliton Laughlin and Alexander Graham Bell had caused enough destruction in the Deaf community? Where is the mistrust of what we see on the news outlets about Harry H. Laughlin and Alexander Graham Bell?

The sterilization of the Deaf people is the worst of all. The Deaf community began to sense differently.

When I first learned about Charles Darwin back in 1988 in eighth grade after taking Biology class, my hearing teacher would speak highly of Darwin’s work, also learned about Francis Galton whom I had no idea he was related to Charles Darwin as half-cousins in college days and told a history lesson where eugenics were taught in schools across the country, only many years later after I read Paddy Ladd’s Understanding Deaf Culture: In Search of Deafhood:

“Against this background, Darwin’s initially explosive ideas on evolution served to reinforce the medical discourse. Deaf people and their languages were confirmed as akin to those of other savages, and an atavistic throwback who, like them, ‘may fancifully be called living fossils [and] will aid us in forming a picture of the ancient forms of life’ ” (1859: 448)

That hit me hard. I had no idea until 2010 when I was 35. The book written by Paddy Ladd had changed my life completely. I feel the wind differently. I relate to the Deaf community and experience a bond with the Deaf community which clearly unknown to you.

Sociology had stolen my heart and became a student of Sociology, and learned that Harriet Martineau, the Mother of Sociology, Martineau was Deaf. I was surprised. I bet you do not know that either. Even my professor whom studied Martineau in graduate school had no idea that Martineau was Deaf.

Not even hearing professors ever mention anything about it. A pattern of ignorance? A certain weaving together of ignorance? Peace, freedom, and global health of the Deaf shall not be ignored.

Martineau was dating Charles Darwin’s older brother, Erasmus Alvey Darwin, and Darwin saw and grabbed the greatest ignorance, the slandering of Deaf people so great that not even an idea exists of what Darwin’s hatred should look like. Would it end all kinds of intellectual oppression? Darwin’s ideology rakes for the highest form of democracy in the broadest sense of hatred.

Despite the vast differences, would The Society for Biodemography and Social Biology, formerly American Eugenics Society apologize for Laughlin’s hatred of the Deaf people? Would they do so with a commitment to develop healthy task to overcome indifference, show of human compassion, that plagues the Deaf community?

Deaf people who lived in Hitler’s Europe, whom were targeted for the display of symbols of hate, thanks to Laughlin’s work. Dealing with the cultural differences, specifically, with the way of life of the ‘minorities’ who live in the society. After reading Crying Hands: Eugenics and Deaf People in Nazi Germany by Horst Biesold, by cultural norms, in processing of a hate crime, and that becomes an issue that all hate crime sessions by Laughlin’s work, must tackle.

Isn’t hate crime by no means unique in the broadest respect of the Deaf people?

If The Society for Biodemography and Social Biology, formerly as American Eugenics Society, refuses to apologize for Laughlin’s action, why should Deaf people be punished more severely because of social and psychological pathology?

Laughlin as an American citizen who breeds in White Supremacy as he received an honorary degree from the Nazi-controlled, University of Heidelberg for the work of race-cleansing. Hate crime violates constitutional rights of the Deaf people, especially Deaf babies.

We must always remind ourselves as well as all others how our Declaration of Independence makes our country different from any other nation around the world. The Declaration proclaims that we have inalienable rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

American Eugenics Society, under the establishment of Harry H. Laughlin in 1926 who was served as the Superintendent of the Eugenics Record Office, probably the best known, if not the most oppressive, White supremacist in America–all but faded into culture of hate.

Will Deaf people ever get a formal apology from The Society for Biodemography and Social Biology?

Harry Laughlin: Sterilize Deaf People!

After I learned that today on December 2nd where Harry Laughlin, a eugenicist published the most damaging paper in 1922 that went ahead and sterilizes Deaf people against their will.

Why Not AGBell in the List of Hate Groups?

hatewatch-headlines_117.png

[https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch]

There are now reported 21 hate groups in District of Columbia released by Southern Poverty Law Center’s HATEWATCH. The only missing group is Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. How come SPLC did not list AGBell in this group? Well, there are few reasons that I will do my best to write and explain why AGBell should be classified as a hate group. Perhaps SPLC would learn from this for a start and go from there.

First of all, it is a sound-oriented world and SPLC does not really understand what Deaf people had suffered in their lifetime experiencing hate. Bell’s action equaled “Audism” of denying the linguistic minority such as Deaf signers such privileges and societal rights to the use of “natural language” Audism should really a logical term to describe AGBell’s eugenics movement for imposing linguistic and cultural superiority and eradication upon Deaf American signers of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

More appropriate terms are linguistic imperialism or attempt to “linguicide” the sociocultural minority, ex. Deaf signers of the post-Milan Conference period from conveying and expressing their own thoughts in practical and efficient language usage. “Linguicism” could be also an acceptable term to describe AGBell’s misguided ideology of assimilating or centralizing the sociolinguistic minority into the society at large on so-called equal basis.

Deaf Americans and other Deaf people everywhere, could enact the strategic multilingualism policies to ensure the protection and preservation of our beloved and precious language (ASL, LSF, BSL, and many others) from possibility of linguistic extinction/loss and sociocultural genocide or undermine the existence of minority language usage. Deaf people everywhere ought to call for the non-intervention policy to make our natural language of the Deaf to the protected status to the listing of endangered language usage in the United States and other countries.

Beginning with the work of AGBell in the late 19th century, Deaf people have been frequent and prominent targets of the eugenics movement. It is not widely known by the general public that, in addition to his work as an inventor, Bell was also a leading figure in the education of the Deaf in the late 19th and 20th centuries. In order to put this issue into context, it is important to consider AGBell and the educational and social programs he promoted.

As it was indicated, the primary characteristic identifying a member of the Deaf community, as opposed to a hearing-impaired person, is the use of ASL. It is a matter of great importance to members of the Deaf community that AGBell was a leader of the movement to “all-oral” education of the Deaf, in which ASL was banned from the educational process and discouraged in ordinary social intercourse.

AGBell and other oralists seem to have been motivated by two major beliefs. First was a belief in the “progressive” idea that American should have a single “official” language, spoken English, and that everyone should acquire in the same way. Signing was thought to result in the failure to have an adequate command of English, which would condemn the Deaf person to a life of poverty and impaired intellect. The use of ASL in the educational process was felt to impede the development not only of speaking and lip-reading but also reading and writing.

51PU3CHz5vL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

The second motivation for the oralists was eugenic in nature and had to do with the supposed genetic bases of the state of being Deaf. The reasoning went like this: AGBell, in an influential monograph titled Memoir Upon the Formation of a Deaf Variety of the Human Raceasserted that sign language and those residential schools where it was used led to the formation of a separate Deaf community.

He noted, further, that the state of being Deaf is primarily heredity and that if Deaf people congregate and intermarry, the state of being Deaf, seen as a severe disability, will increase in the general population. Both of these lines of reasoning are know known to the without foundation-sign language has never been shown to interfere with the acquisition of spoken English skills, and, as is known to all of you, the state of being Deaf has many causes, generic and nongerietic.

In fact, most Deaf couple have hearing children (Lane, 1999) this can be attributed to a wider social awareness of other cultures in general in the United States. Even though awareness of Deaf culture has been perpetuated, the knowledge of the condition is not wholly agreed on by individuals in the hearing community, as evidenced by the results of the true or false portion of community how they view of Deaf people.

That is one of many reasons why SPLC did not really understand how much pain Deaf community has gone through the series of hatred. One day, AGBell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing will be recognized as a hate group. Time will come.

If Gallaudet Wrote Star Wars: Jedi Bell Return

tatooine.jpg

A long time ago in galaxy far, far away…

There is a secret document that has been sealed inside Gallaudet University so deep enough to bury the hatchet—it is like the Federal Bank of New York on the behalf of Federal Reserve System. They hold the gold in there—they act as the guardian and custodian of the gold on behalf of account holders, which include to U.S. government—official organizations.

Gallaudet University is a property of U.S. government and home to many official organizations. Therefore, Gallaudet is home to Alexander Graham Bell Association, an official organization. AGB acts as the guardian and custodian of the Deaf oppression. Have you ever seen a Gallaudet president talk about Racism front of the world before our eyes before? How many Gallaudet presidents combined in total before Bobbi Cordano? I am not talking about text messages, but I am talking about a real-time video—the mother of Truth. That is the first time ever what a Gallaudet-elect president said that. That is history in the making, folks!

This is but one truly social problem, and that is educational ignorance. Whether or not the world has three dimensions, whether the mind has nine or 12 categories, games are to be played. Racism does not including stories, one must first answer! Gallaudet University was built in 1864 for Deaf people first like Tatoonie with the picture above—where it had begun for Deaf people first. Same concept.

Alexander Graham Bell once said, “When one door closes another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” Have you ever seen a picture of Alexander Graham Bell and a Black Deaf student together anywhere? No pictures can be found. It is important to know that Bell did write a memo (letter-alike) to Francis Galton in Britain who coined Eugenics informing him that AGB follows Galton’s philosophy then becomes a honorary president of the Second International Congress of Eugenics a year before his death. People look up to AGB as Jedi of Deaf people—the problem, Jedi was supposed to be good people.

IMG_1429.JPG

Darth Vader was a Jedi before the Dark Side took over his life—and AGB went into Dark Side and fooled many people including Deaf people.

Eugenics influences Racism—a learned behavior in higher education. Galton then writes a letter in return on his paper, “Hereditary Deafness” on his review of Bell’s Upon the formation of a deaf variety of the human race in a 1885 magazine—Review in Nature, Vol: 31, Pages 269-70. The opening paragraph:

The startling title of Mr. Graham Bell’s admirable memoir is fully justified by its contents. 

Finally, in late 2015, President-elect Bobbi Cordano shares her greatest concerns after being invited to be part of town hall by Black Student Union listening to stories about oppression, internalized oppression at best. Bobbi would like to stop Racism and systematic discrimination as long as Alexander Graham Bell’s name is out of the Gallaudet campus. AGB’s systematic discrimination practices Audism, the favorite cousin of Racism. The quote by AGB makes a perfect example why Gallaudet has ignored Racism for so long by allowing that happening inside the door being closed and opens to Racism any time they welcome so regretfully upon the door that white supremacy still practices at Gallaudet. Is that why they do not want us to see the ones, which open for us?

Now I can broach the notion of intellectual oppression at Gallaudet University. There is a real change. It has already felt what solution might be given. At this point the problem is reversed. It was previously questioned of finding out whether or not Racism appears a problem. It now becomes clear, on the contrary, that Racism is or not. Watching the campus unrest at Gallaudet University, a particular fact, is acknowledging it fully. Now, no one will live in this fact, not recognizing it to be important, unless AGB goes away.

It is not just about color skin, but it has a lot of codes in language racism and multicultural competence. For example, a provost would say, “I AM GALLAUDET! I AM GALLAUDET! I AM GALLAUDET!” using political power on a Deaf student in a private meeting is considered Racism. There is a star out in the far galaxy that actually named after Deaf person.

No kidding! His name is Oliver Heaviside, an electrical engineer, mathematician, and physicist from 1850s from England. He invented several mathematical techniques to seek for the solution of differential equations and coined Electromagnetic eight terms. Deaf people do not need to suffer anymore and throw Jedi Bell into the Death Star for once and all. Bell is a death star to Deaf people’s Star Wars. Darth Vader would fry Bell like Vader did to Palpatine, also known as Darth Sidious, who planned to overthrow the Republic and the Jedi Order from with.

Being an ally to people of color in the struggle to end racism is one of the most important things that Gallaudet University needs to do that. Can there at least healthy way to be an ally? Racism needs to be overthrown out of Gallaudet University and the Jedi Order of Alexander Graham Bell. Why return again and again?

A wise Jedi once warned, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

Hate crimes and speech does exist on the campus. A lot of Deaf people had been suffering.  Thank you, Master Yoda! That would become of healthy Gallaudet!

May the Force be with you!

When Should You Give Alexander Graham Bell ‘The Benefit of the Doubt’?

IMG_0116

Today is July 26, 2015: The home of the 25th anniversary for Americans with Disabilities Act known as ADA event held at National Museum of American History to see what the panel including a Deaf professor by the name of Brian Greenwald about eugenics, the same root of Alexander Graham Bell [AGBell] that runs a violation in every bone inside a human being. It is probably the most unforgettable thing ever happened to the Deaf everywhere! Very embarrassing!

In fact, many teachers of the Deaf or a member of Alexander Graham Bell Association go without need assessment and evaluation. They are just on their own and it is called a reasonable accommodation in the United States. I could now easily anticipate a show change to happen to respect ASL as a form of speech for the Deaf, thanks be to the Veditz’s life and death. This situation shall be on our footnotes for academic dialect, debates, discourses, discussions, and dialogues. We must stop such a language bastardization when Mr. Greenwald in the Department of History at Gallaudet University bows to the American Deaf eugenics king…. for what purpose? The same professor who asked to be a moderator for a play called Bell held at National Geographic Society last September 2013. Please check the link below for more information:

Gallaudet University Needs Radical Students

Since AGBell’s death in 1922, his practice is unstoppable today. AGBell’s practice makes a statement to attempt to describe how to figure out to wipe Deaf people off on the same planet we walk and breathe by existence independently on the statement, and the statement will be true or false depending on whether things in the world really are the way the statement suggests so. As an AGBell survivor thanks to Tucker Maxon Oral School’s damage, I will never have an independent mind with freedom and pursuit of happiness.

Now with the legacy that the Deaf professor carry, there are countless survivors of AGBell practice, Greenwald himself fails to seek judicial review to challenge Deaf people with the fact that the 14th amendment under section one, equal protection of the laws guarantees every Deaf signing American a decent and respectful life. Given the fact that the professor keeps AGBell in good standing is a life-threatening legislation, and when will this insanity end? How does the 14th amendment protect Deaf signing people away from AGBell association when they rub in our faces?

Deaf signing people already visit grocery stores, movie theaters, churches, coffee shops, and restaurants. In other words, Deaf people are everywhere in our community and that showing such disrespect for the effort of changing their lives around. There are AGBell people, especially watchdogs, which are very much, strive to injure, harass, giving away hate messages, death threats against Deaf people. It is their mission to burn witches at the stake. Now, it is time to turn off the media and read a book what is really happening to our democratic society where all Deaf citizens are supposedly equal under the law.

Can this guy, Brian Greenwald stop talking so much about AGBell and move to a healthy discourse because quite frankly, when he speaks highly of AGBell, it was so absurd in that it represents the opposite of what a supposedly free and liberty minded society should believe in. The more you understand about eugenics what AGBell has done to Deaf people, the fraud that it is. Celebrate freedom and liberty as well for all Deaf signing people. Protect the Constitution of the United States.

You know when the discussion table held at the museum facing south of the Capitol with United States Congress “guard” the truth, the Congress made an executive decision that AGBell stole the phone patent few years ago while the professor said that AGBell invented the phone as a panelist conveying the message to the audience who shows up to honor their 25th anniversary of the ADA. The United States Congress has more power than Greenwalt. Who is Greenwald to overcome the power of United States Congress?

Finally, where are the Deaf people’s rights not to get shot by AGBell watchdogs, stabbed, facing threatening sentiments with a grudge and $100? When do they finally going to realize that the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness appears way before their rights were mentioned? AGBell targeting Deaf people through websites has becoming a way of life.

Greenwald is currently working on a book about the role of Alexander Graham Bell and the American eugenics movement. It would be total waste to write about the AGBell who oppresses Deaf people everyday in American life today. I am sure that AGBell association is very thrilled to see his book and make AGBell association richer.

How long is it going to take before the government realizes the obvious solution? It is now time to set the clock back on the 1880 Milan “get tough on Deaf people” crime nonsense and it is clear that the time has come to move away from the political lies and manipulations of fear-based oppression and spend 500 and + million dollars on targeting Deaf people and financial reckoning with bold steps toward fact and reason. The calls from the AGBell association continue despite Deaf citizen humanitarian needs.

IMG_0066The Monument. It was built to honor George Washington, the United States’ first president, the 555-foot marble obelisk towers over Washington, D.C. The Deaf people arrived FIRST in America way before Alexander Graham Bell’s birth. Think about that!

Obamacare: Should Cochlear Implant Be Part of Package?

185655_347370528703742_738915819_nDavid Call’s Plague Doctor

What a day in our great country! In Deaf community, it is important to know that the big news yesterday about The Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare has passed to guard the most important act in American history. Nice try, Republicans! President Obama then makes a thunder-bolting message, “What we’re not going to do is unravel what has now been woven into the fabric of America.”

Is cochlear implant [CI] surgery covered in insurance under Obamacare? I hope not. Since Obamacare is a humankind’s natural condition. I hope Obamacare also understand the serious consequences that cochlear implant does not tell us anything; people with CI tells us thing the world need to know. We need to use scientific strategies to investigate the relationship of CI to education. The picture begins here.

Nature vs. Nurture

Again, Nature—it is humankind’s original or natural condition. Nurture—it is something that nourishes or trains. Now some Deaf people have stopped using cochlear implants—when you ask them why stop wearing them, they would say, “My nature is being Deaf.” Even though they were raised nourishing for years and years. Still nature overcomes nurture.

Now, in America’s healthcare with the new law passed, they shall stop training Deaf children in speech and hearing that are nurture while they are not focused on nature of learning in American Sign Language and sign languages. Every group being fair game to this unsavory person makes this practice acceptable, is it not? The message we are missing is the lack of respect for cultural diversity, especially for the oppressed people who are still rejected to this day by the mainstreamed society and who are not empowered yet. This is the key.

Nature vs. Nurture are difficult to discuss in Deaf community because when nurture is unsuccessful, they become anger or disliked that lead the occurrence of belittlement, bigotry, hegemony, etc. Science, as a way of thinking and investigation, is best defined in the truth that cochlear implant is not enough providing channels and is a failure in the eyes of insurance companies. Again, is the cochlear implant surgery covered in Obamacare’s package? You decide.

Being Deaf is the real science of Obamacare. Get rid of plague doctors.
