Why Deaf Community Should Not Label ROAR as Hate Group

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?

Can “Data” Twist?

While I took advanced statistics class, I learned so much that I felt that it could benefit you to understand why data can easily twisted.

ASL: Emotional Intelligence?

Will we agree that American Sign Language (ASL) ever succeed as an emotional intelligence?

Rethinking ASL Justice & AGBell Colonialism

woty-justice-2018-5930-eb57eec534ce5401d7d6a7b1ae4b6f31@1x.jpg

Without question, 2018 has been emotional, heart-breaking, heart-crunching, heart-wrenching, hurt, being lied to, being deceived, confused, showing the culture of bystander, denials, and lost souls for Deaf community. Where is justice for American Sign Language (ASL)?

LEAD-K. It was never about data. It was about Alexander Graham Bell. With our help, we need to stand up for justice and stop Alexander Graham Bell patronizing Deaf people down. In fact, the word of the year for 2018 by Merriam-Webster has chosen “justice”—how fitting it is.

In New York Times by Dan Levin, writes that:‘in choosing the noun, Merriam-Webster said that it was looked up on its website 74 percent more often than in 2017’

 LEAD-K was never about justice. It was more like travesty. What is travesty? Representing in a false or distorted way and that is how Deaf community felt about being represented in a false picture that it is all right to team up with Alexander Graham Bell.

LEAD-K helped Alexander Graham Bell gain more prejudice against ASL in our Deaf community. They are allowing Alexander Graham Bell to gain access to hate and Surdophobia in Deaf schools and mainstreaming schools.

Two years after LEAD-K formed, there are two things are absolutely clear: Alexander Graham Bell’s words and actions reflect the Audism, Surdophobia, and Hate Speech that had been at the face of the LEAD-K campaign. Now Cued Speech is forming in Virginia and Illinois—and wants to spread all over America with the help of LEAD-K. It was never about data or improving literacy in reading and writing.

A coalition of activists had been spending a lot of time, energy, and passion to bring the truth about Alexander Graham Bell’s hateful ideology. There are plenty of Deaf artists who drew pictures of how Alexander Graham Bell are dangerous proves effective, with survivors of Alexander Graham Bell gaining greater understanding through their own artwork.

There are plenty of Deaf writers who took it to the streets, social media, and public, showing the truth about Alexander Graham Bell and sends a message onto the platform to distribute truth and challenging the lies that makes Deaf students “successful” with Cued Speech, listening and speaking, and cochlear implants, and the list goes on, making Alexander Graham Bell for the message.

LEAD-K claims that it would support the foundation of Deaf children, and help protect young lives from the destructive effects of Oralism, but Deaf community got fooled badly.

The educational materials would help and empower Deaf people with the facts they need to live healthy, Audism-free lives. We need to continue and stand up against Audism and Surdophobia practice and conquer the language hegemony or oppression.

Now it is time for us to spread the truth. We stand up for social justice! We stand up for ASL justice!

Are Deaf People Beyond Hate in Society?

tim181112v1_cov-hatefinal.jpg

When I was reading Beyond Hate written by Jon Meacham, Nancy Gibbs, Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., Katie Couric, and Deborah Lipstadt in TIME magazine issue November 2018, the quote caught my eye by Gibbs:

“Hate, among all our base instincts, is the most distinctly human. In animals, violence and venom are tools of survival; in humans, of supremacy, small, scared people hate, self-hating people hate, bullied and betrayed people hate as though hate will make large and safe and strong.”

Can we accept the fact that Deaf community is being built on hate crime as well, too?

Out of all people knows that hate crime comes with self-hating, in the language documentations that practice hate speech, which can supposedly hide from the society how Deaf people dealt with. How does it help to say that hate crime is the inerrant language of the Deaf, if in fact, the society does not require statistics of the Deaf in the eyes of law?

Isn’t that also the mirror of beyond hate? Nancy Gibbs writes, “you can’t be fooled, you won’t be puppets, you know better, you know the truth.”

Deaf people are no longer serve as puppets to please the hearing supremacy, the truth is coming out.

By the way, my English and synatx may be poor, but I make mistakes. I am not perfect. I am Deaf and I try my best to improve my written English skills every day. It may be poor, it’s a form of bullying and I’ve dealt with shit before even in English classes when I was an undergraduate student. I am not perfect.

Image below–once you read this book “Globish: How English Became the World’s Language” wrote by Robert McCrum, it will open your eyes and mind why English is supremacy and powerful.
