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: Biden Calls Military Members ‘Stupid B—’ During Overseas Speech As Vice President

And the MSM will remain silent.

It wasn’t that long ago when the mainstream media pushed a story accusing President Trump of denigrating US military members. The reports have been widely debunked, as one would expect. However, here’s actual footage of 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling them “stupid bastards.” And the MSM will remain silent. From The Daily Wire: A video emerged on Friday of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” during a speech overseas to U.S. soldiers while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration. WATCH: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1309604720546373633?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1309604720546373633%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-video-emerges-of-joe-biden-calling-u-s-troops-stupid-bastards-during-speech-biden-campaign-responds Team Biden has put out a statement saying Joe was just joking. They must be tired of doing that by now. When Joe was in Germany he decided to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough. According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1096974881801957376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1096974881801957376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjoe-biden-goes-to-germany-trashes-america-as-an-embarrassment%2F

Pelosi: If GOP Moves Forward With SCOTUS Nomination ‘There Has To Be A Price To Pay’

And what would that be??

Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think Joe Biden should debate President Trump. She doesn’t give a legitimate reason why, but come on – we all know why. Joe isn’t all there. From Fox News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his “henchmen” have no “fidelity” to facts or the truth. Asked during an interview on “Morning on CBS” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.” Here’s video of Pelosi claiming there “has to be a price to pay” if Republicans move forward with a SCOTUS nomination before the general election. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHx56Kxmea0&feature=emb_title Rush Limbaugh makes an excellent point about this upcoming SCOTUS pick. Congressional Republicans, take note. From The Hill: Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged Senate Republicans to skip the confirmation hearing process for President Trump’s soon-to-be announced Supreme Court nominee and head straight to a floor vote. “I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped,” Limbaugh said Monday on his daily radio program. “We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/mmfa/status/1308100957390151683?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308100957390151683%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fmedia%2F517408-rush-limbaugh-encourages-senate-to-skip-hearings-for-trumps-scotus-nominee H/T: Right Scoop
