Chris Haulmark: Revenge and Punishment Does Not Win

actual-malice-defamation.jpg

Do you think Chris Haulmark deserve a congressional seat for Kansas? The problem is that he is a Republican. That is one of many red flags. He also have a reputation for driven hatred—by rubbing in Deaf people’s faces back in 2015—Deaf Protest what is now Deaf Grassroots Movement (DGM) and viewed DGM as “prime recruiting ground.”

Chris acted as a “leader” along with his best friend from Indiana by oppressing those core leaders and he thinks he knows the best interests for so-called “Deaf Issues”—Oh yes, he was aggressive and confrontational about my participation as invited speakers and made successful to delete my knowledge through fear and lies and made Deaf Protest core leaders to remove me from the platform. I bet it makes Chris feel good about it.

I was invited by Deaf Protest core team to give an inspirational presentation to represent a non-profit organization as a Deaf community liaison to talk about variety of services to understand awareness training through advocacy that brings out the beacon of hope and pursuit of happiness providing successful reintegration with wavering support to improve criminal justice reform to heal Deaf returned citizens or Deaf inmates.

It is best to understand from Deaf returned citizen’s experience in some of the toughest times through a broken heart and through depression. Yes, I made mistakes especially when I was a young lost boy. I made a mistake at age of 12. I have only ONE felony record in my life and I would be more than happy to show the proof. This is an action that will always shape my life’s deeper than you might imagine. I’ve shown plenty of remorse and of course, I understand that my suffering does not equal the suffering I have inflicted. My Deafhood journey begun.

Chris Haulmark did this to me purely out of malice for sheer pleasure. It was fundamentally undemocratic. Bullying does not mean backing the right candidates. He was attempting to make it more difficult for me to fit into Deaf community and wanted me to be shunned in public. Hate has spewed by Haulmark was a directive outward for his own self-loathing. I will be always long shamed by an often ignorant and easily inflamed public and suffer more punishment. I saw a great quote that I thought I should share with you all:

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.”-Robert A. Heinlein

He never apologized or admitted guilt. That is what most of Republicans would typically do by not admitting guilt. However, I do believe people can redeem themselves. If Chris admitted what he did, then it will start by acknowledging this irreparable harm. If not, then put a stop to Chris’s manipulation of democracy. Enough. It is time for more education and understanding about the complexities of bullying and hate.

The questions we all need to remind ourselves: What does Deaf community want of a Deaf returned citizen? Did Chris want only revenge and punishment and no hope for a future, to throw away the key? Since all of us have made mistakes in our lives, no matter what how small or large, do you ever think what life would be like with no chance to better or even redeem ourselves?

The most difficult thing is that Wes Arey, a Deaf returned citizen himself with four felonies has supported Chris Haulmark’s action. Arey knew that it was a criminal act by Chris or was Arey was too naive not to see it? How messed up is that?

Few people see the light of truth within this world of darkness, in the same way few birds escape from the net which has caught them”. –The World, verse 174

That is why I do not support Chris Haulmark to win the seat. He do not deserve it at all. Please do not support Chris or donate money. I will make everything to make sure Chris does not win the seat. Either Arey or Haulmark does not understand what United States Constitution Eighth Amendment means….that is why Haulmark is not qualified even Deaf issues, too. Oh, we do not need more Republicans anyway. Time for a change.

Funny thing is that the official state motto of Kansas in Latin: Ad Astra Per Aspera which means “To the Stars Through Difficulties” and that is why my late grandfather Earl who he was born in Kansas would tell me that Democrats would understand better about difficultites than Republicans. It’s true!  He was a true blue brother!

Chris Haulmark for United States Congress Seat

ASL Is Not A National Disgrace

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

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.

unnamed-1.png

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?
