Jesus Hates Deaf People
Colorado Springs – In the deaf community across the country, and primarily on the east coast near Washington, D.C., there exists a small, but powerful cult of Deaf people. These Deaf people worship all things Deaf – from Deaf toilet paper to Deaf penile implants. They reject any and all things related to the hearing world (although, they do sure appreciate most things hearing people gave them, such as the internet, automobiles, cellphones, iPods, surround-sound stereos, and flutes, among other things.)
They drive what is mythically known as Deaf culture (a researcher recently called for new research methodologies to update demographics related to how many people use American Sign Language in the US. By extension, Deaf culture is predicated upon a belief that the majority of Deaf people collectively join together to create a culture through signed language – except nobody knows who is or isn’t Deaf). There exists a Deaf community and then there exists a separate Deaf culture.
Actually, Deaf culture has a cult of Deaf people called, the One-Eyed People. These people run Gallaudet University, the nation’s primary educational institution for the deaf. They crucified Jane Fernandes last year by spreading truthful rumors about Fernandes – she had an iPod and was caught downloading musical files at Gallaudet one Sunday afternoon.
Well, actually, it’s more than that: Fernandes grew up without sign language for the better part of her childhood and was told to hate Deaf people as soon as the doctor pulled her from the womb. iPods are a form of hateful expression towards the One-Eyed People, and because Fernandes is considered to be an oral deaf person (notice the lowercase in the word, “deaf.” “Deaf” people like their capital letters and have a patent pending on the word, “Deaf,” for economical and political reasons), she was considered to be “not Deaf enough,” to lead Gallaudet.
See, the One-Eyed People cult believe that because Fernandes called for stricter academic standards – along with opening up Gallaudet to reflect a wider, more diverse deaf community across the country – she is doing the same thing Alexander Graham Bell did: profess a love for graham crackers. One-Eyed Deaf people hate honey-roasted graham crackers, and Fernandes, an admitted addict to graham crackers and milk, is considered to be as evil as Bell.
Bell’s mother went deaf when he was a young boy; as he became older, he married a deaf woman. While busy inventing modern-day cellphone-fueled road rage (which the One-Eyed People never exhibit), Bell advocated eugenics. The concept of forbidding mentally retarded people from having children is eugenics (actually, many disabled groups at the onset of the 20th century were forced to be sterilized due to state laws – but primarily the Deaf culture consistently whines about it, still.) But the One-Eyed People want mentally retarded people to be happy citizens and to breed prolifically because they oppose eugenics.
Adolph Hitler advocated eugenics after Bell, although in Bell’s defense, most of America during Bell’s time also supported eugenics advocacy. Even the Rockefeller Foundation supported eugenics, although nobody in the United States killed off a lesbian to purify any race like Hitler did. And because Hitler killed 6 million people as part of his desire to cleanse the human race of “undesirables,” Bell is guilty of the racial crime of not just being a graham cracker lover, but also an audist.
Audism has two rules: to be an audist, you must first bitch-slap a Deaf person into submission. Actually, it won’t work unless you’re a hearing person. That’s the second requirement. So, you’ve got to be a hearing person and bitch-slap a Deaf person to be guilty of being an audist – a hearing person expressing superiority over a Deaf person. Oh, and there’s a third requirement I almost forgot: any person who desires to “cure” or “fix” Deaf people is an audist, too.
Fernandes issued a series of statements to the press, calling for Gallaudet University to become an academic institution of higher learning. She called for inclusion and diversity, noting that the demographic make-up of the school represented a KKK fan’s wet dream come true: mostly white deaf people. Fernandes pointed out that other minority groups were being left out at Gallaudet, and sought to eradicate the influence of the KKK-inspired One-Eyed People cult.
But Fernandes is a eugenicist because she mentioned people with cochlear implants as becoming part of Gallaudet. As the technology improves and becomes less expensive, the number of children born with hearing loss receiving the implants will increase significantly over the next few years.
The One-Eyed People view all things related to cochlear implants as “evil,” and that any organization that promotes the implants are essentially eugenicists. They also feel that because the NFL allows the no-huddle offense (the first huddle in football is credited to a Deaf football team), and also allows Tom Brady to receive coaches’ plays via a radio implanted into his helmet, that the league advocates anti-Deaf political policies – or audism.
The One-Eyed People view cochlear implants as a threat to their cult. In fact, increasingly, some members of this group are comparing American deaf people with foreigners. If you’re like Fernandes, you are not American – you are of some other unknown nationality. One Deaf political blogger says comparing a Deaf person with a deaf person is like comparing an American to a Brit.
In efforts to save their cult from foreigners, the One-Eyed People want to protect what they call, “Deaf culture.” Gallaudet University is a Deaf culture school, receiving $108 million per year from the federal government. Forget the YMCA or the Boys & Girls Club – Gallaudet is the Taj Mahal of culture clubs around the world. For $108 million, the school bans iPods and old-school sound-boxes because these are against Deaf culture.
So, Gallaudet should somehow be a cultural and educational facility, promoting only Deaf cults. This is the kind of thinking that would compel lesbians to start their own Van Dyke University because lesbians are somehow deprived of an education in a straight people’s world. They want to teach classes on how to be a cunning linguist while celebrating lesbianhood. Actually, the real reason to protect Deaf culture at Gallaudet is as the president of Van Dyke University said:
“We basically got tired of being dicked around.”
The One-Eyed People cult has been dicked around for too long by hearing people – mostly those not white. In fact, Fernandes has consistently pointed out that too few people of color are represented on the Gallaudet campus. Because of this statement, one educator of the Deaf at another deaf educational institution has circulated a petition online in hopes of further politically lynching Fernandes because of Fernandes’ iPod. If being orally deaf and with an iPod wasn’t bad enough, simply telling people your opinion is grounds for continued aggressive tactics against you. May a Deaf God help you.
The petition states that Fernandes has harmed “Deaf culture” while at Gallaudet. So that must be the problem: Fernandes didn’t properly (and positively) address the “Deaf culture” element at the school. For that, the petition states, she must be eradicated from Gallaudet completely.
As it turns out, the many wise and extremely fair and judicious members of the One-Eyed People cult engage in positive advocacy. When I asked a Deaf political blogger, “What can I do?” to work with him on our opposing views, he responded by publishing a YouTube link (shortly after I wrote this article, the link and portions of the original article were removed) on his blog of some dude kicking ass in a mixed martial arts match. He thought that was me, and many members of the One-Eyed People cult nodded in collective agreement. “So that’s why he’s so mean to Deaf people – he likes beating up people! Look! If it’s on YouTube, it must be true!”
Not only that, but there’s several Deaf bloggers and video loggers (vloggers) who routinely make claims that they talk to their friends, neighbors and other people who do not have iPods at Gallaudet as proof of investigative reporting. One commonality among many Deaf bloggers and vloggers is the consistent use of unknown, unnamed and anonymous sources of comments. In fact, many of these Deaf people like to claim that because an unknown Deaf person said it, it must be undeniably true.
One Deaf woman who works at a Deaf school (and a member of a group that has close ties to the One-Eyed People cult) claims that an administrator reprimanded her for trying to shove her political ideals onto a young child. Turns out the vlog itself was an entire rant and rave against oralism and nobody seems to note that there’s a Deaf woman politicizing a young child in the name of protecting Deaf culture. She added a bit about her friend and somehow, lots of Deaf people believed the vlog as if a crime had been unquestionably committed against the Deaf woman.
When a Deaf person makes a claim against hearing people, it is considered as truthful as the Bible itself because Deaf people just don’t engage in audism, and they never lie and they never see/do things wrong. What a Deaf person says is gospel – same as the Bible – and should never be challenged, especially relating to all matters concerning Deaf/deaf education around the country.
And speaking of the Bible, I couldn’t help but remember hearing stories about deaf people in the Bible as a deaf child. Deaf people were portrayed as being nasty and possessed by evil spirits, or demons. But Jesus Christ healed a deaf man, and so that means Jesus hates Deaf people. It is so because Jesus “cured” a deaf man – an act of audism.
The ultimate promoter of audism is the Christian Bible. There is no Deaf God or Deaf Jesus or Deaf Mary or Deaf donkey that delivered a Deaf Christ to a Deaf manger to a Deaf crowd of Deaf farm animals while a Deaf star shone brightly over Wal-Mart. I didn’t make these rules up, you know? The One-Eyed People came up with this all by themselves.
Since the One-Eyed People reject Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior because he cured a deaf man, they want Gallaudet to create a Deaf religion. The president at Gallaudet, they feel, should be the High Priest of Deaf society. People who are deaf and have iPods are considered sacrificial lambs for the sake of the cult. To appease the Deaf God, the cult finds victims and unmercifully attacks them until they either become Deaf or become British – whichever is worse.
Since the 1988 student-led protests, the Gallaudet campus has been terrorized by the One-Eyed People cult. Their only focus is on protecting Deaf culture at all costs. Lately, they’ve been touring around the country, protesting against people and organizations alike for being “oral” or evil. The AG Bell Foundation is a private educational program, an option for parents of hearing children to consider.
Many members of the One-Eyed People cult have began launching rallies and protests against this organization. The reason? Because AG Bell Foundation focuses on other educational means – outside of signed language. Still, the AG Bell Foundation offers parents resources to the National Association of the Deaf (which at one point, equated cochlear implants as a form of “cultural genocide,” but after being bitch-slapped by a few audists, the NAD reversed and now supports cochlear implants as a parental option) and issues press releases stating that parents have a choice and that AG Bell Foundation has nothing against Deaf culture. And the only thing that matters to cult members is the fact American Sign Language (ASL) is not mentioned as part of the educational curriculum and believe this to be evidence of AG Bell Foundation promoting “cultural genocide.”
The One-Eyed People cult lump anyone with a differing view on deaf education (read: ASL and Deaf culture) as being on par with the AG Bell Foundation. And it’s the same as being a eugenicists as were Bell and Hilter, too. And don’t forget, Jesus Christ. In the final analysis, anyone who presents a threat to the One-Eyed People ought to be removed – especially if it threatens the $108 million a year cultural civics center that they want Gallaudet to turn into.
The One-Eyed People cult insists that all deaf children born in this country (90-95% of deaf children are born to hearing parents) should be indoctrinated as a future One-Eyed member. As soon as a baby is plucked from a mother’s womb, the cult insists that the baby has to be taught ASL for the singular purpose of protecting Deaf culture. In fact, one researcher stated the problem with Deaf culture today:
Since the potential recipients of cochlear implants are, in the main, the prelingually deaf children of hearing parents, the burden of banning the implants would be borne by people who are not members of Deaf culture, and who owe that culture nothing over and above what we all owe cultures in general. I conclude that we cannot ask the parents of these children to sacrifice the interests of their children for the sake of Deaf culture.
The fact remains that Jane Fernandes was sacrificed in the name of protecting Deaf culture at Gallaudet. It was not so much an administrative or managerial issue because many of the faculty there at Gallaudet are like the Deaf educator who is seeking to have Fernandes removed via a petition: they oppose any free-thinking deaf people who analyze Gallaudet with a vision to improve the school’s academic and research standards.
Gallaudet should be a university that promotes diversity and inclusion, along with a student population that is not restricted to young men and women walking around with cardboard cutouts placed over their faces, viewing the world through a singular one-eyed peephole.
Still, I want to know: is a Deaf Christian an oxymoron?
Good thing I’m atheist.
Be good .. or be good at it.
