Prestigious Library Journal Comes Out Against… Libraries

Diogenes’ Middle Finger:

If You Don’t Believe Our Culture Has Gone Off The Rails, Well Just Read This:

Don’t Oppress My People With Your Public Libraries
The Twitter feed of the prestigious Library Journal, a “global community of more than 200,000 librarians and educators,” proudly directs its readers to the mental exertions of one of it’s own, Ms. Sofia Leung and her screed entitled “Whiteness As Collections”

“Our library collections, because they are written mostly by straight white men, are a physical manifestation of white men ideas taking up all the space in our library stacks. Pause here and think about this.”

Ms Leung, an academic librarian, is unhappy that public libraries in the US, a white-majority culture with a white-majority history, tend to have among other things, lots of books by authors with pale skin, white dudes thinking great thoughts, or as we used to call it, Western Civilization. This, we’re told, is an “interesting mini-eureka moment” that our Queen of Intersectional Rumination feels compelled to share.

Ms. Leung airs her distaste for “white men ideas” – as if they had been uniform across continents and throughout history – while reminiscing about attending a “white AF conference” two years earlier. I was unsure what the “AF” might refer to and searched for some literary or scholarly explanation. It then occurred to me that a “white AF conference” is, to borrow the woke vernacular, a white as fuck conference. Which is how not-at-all-racist academic librarians convey their thoughts, apparently.  more here

  1. If attacks on whites are bad now just imagine if we were in the minority. This is exactly why whites are inclined not to want minority populations grow to large in this country, they can see the abuse coming. Nobody expects from minorities the kind of welcoming attitudes we’ve shown {with exceptions} to them.

  2. …it is not surprising that Dems want to get rid of paper books. It’s MUCH easier to rewrite history if its all digitized and YOU control the companies doing the digitizing…

  3. Take away straight males and you evolve to the obamas. And rosie o’donnell.

    Quite a world that would be.

    Tell this sexist racist to go — no, better yet: kick his ass.

  4. She so woke!
    “I still have some thinking to do around this topic, but curious to hear what others think. I’m less interested in hearing that you don’t buy it, so don’t bother with those types of comments.”

  5. Keep your filthy hands off my books, both the ones I borrow from the public library and especially my own books. Why do I keep hearkening back to Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 when I hear this or Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. These people just want people to be illiterate and dumb as dirt so they can easily control and manipulate them. Words especially written words mean things that they can not allow since it might cause people to think for themselves. I hate book burners and those who would lead us into new Dark Ages if they totally banned books. Maybe I’ll to become a monk in order to preserve the written word for future generations.

  6. Professional academics are death to freedom.

    They’re the ones who come up with terrible ideas and plans to enslave us, then sit back and let the dumber ones carry out their brain-sick plans. Worse, they never learn when their ideas fail, they just repackage and try to sell them again.

    I include the whole panoply of communist “thinkers” in what I refer to as professional academics, starting with Marx and Engels.
