Beloved TV Character SpongeBob Squarepants Is ‘Violent,’ ‘Racist’ Colonizer, Says College Professor

That’s a new one…

The article is titled, “Unsettling SpongeBob and the Legacies of Violence on Bikini Bottom.” It was written by Holly M. Barker, a professor at the University of Washington. And yes, Holly argues that SpongeBob is “violent” and “racist” and a “colonizer.”

Because when it comes to anything in the world in which now live, there’s a decent chance a radical will declare it racist. It’s almost a guarantee, at this point.

Nothing can just be. Everything must have a darker, deep-rooted statement meant to tick off liberals at every turn. It’s as if the creator of SpongeBob secretly made his world-famous character a racist hoping one day the left would call him on it, right?

From Daily Wire:

“Billions of people around the globe are well-acquainted with SpongeBob Squarepants and the antics of the title character and his friends on Bikini Bottom. By the same token, there is an absence of public discourse about the whitewashing of violent American military activities through SpongeBob’s occupation and reclaiming of the bottom of Bikini Atoll’s lagoon. SpongeBob Squarepants and his friends play a role in normalizing the settler colonial takings of Indigenous lands while erasing the ancestral Bikinian people from their nonfictional homeland,” reads the abstract for Barker’s piece.

Continued:

Barker’s abstract asserts that SpongeBob has colonized Bikini Bottom — the underwater home to the lovable characters — and claims the cartoon is “whitewashing” the “violent American military activities” against natives on Pacific islands, specifically the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands, used by the U.S. military for nuclear testing:

This article exposes the complicity of popular culture in maintaining American military hegemonies in Oceania while amplifying the enduring indigeneity (Kauanui 2016) of the Marshallese people, who maintain deeply spiritual and historical connections to land — even land they cannot occupy due to residual radiation contamination from US nuclear weapons testing — through a range of cultural practices, including language, song, and weaving. This article also considers the gendered violence of nuclear colonialism and the resilience of Marshallese women.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA.

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog.

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
