World Net Daily slams anti-white conference in Minneapolis.


CofCC.org played a leading role in exposing a tax payer supported anti-white conference in Minneapolis. We railed against it for weeks, and our Minnesota chapter vowed to protest it. Our work has paid off. In the last couple of days the conference has been denounced by Sean Hannity on Fox News, the Star Tribune Opinion page, Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government.com, and World Net Daily.

It was Kersten who pointed how that Lakeville, Minn., schools sent a delegation to the events, paying $160 per person, plus $125 a day for substitutes. That came even as the school board was announcing $7 million in budget cuts with 94 teachers losing their jobs.

“There was wailing and gnashing of teeth, but the board set its jaw: There’s not a dime for anything extra,” Kersten wrote. “Unless you’ve got an ax to grind with white folks. Then the money spigots open.”

Columnist Warner Todd Huston took a decidedly critical tone over the events.

“Alright you evil, rotten, racist, white oppressors, it’s time once again for the ‘White Privilege Conference,’ this year to be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota… Come on out you white teachers so we can get your rotten minds right about how racist you are and so that you can go back to your students and let them know how racist they are,” he wrote.

He described the “problem” as multiculturalism.

“We are all the same, you see, Indians, Hispanics, Blacks, all at harmony and all equal … well, unless you are a whitey, of course. If you are a whitey, well you have some splanin’ to do! … It’s about time you admitted your malevolence, dang it!”

The “cure” offered by the conference is “a weekend of indoctrination on white’s crimes all for the ultimate education of our children back home in our schools. You see, the kids are all right … as long as they ain’t white,” he wrote.

Kivel’s writings explained how he lookd to Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba and southern Indian for “inspiration.”

The Minnesota Council of Conservative Citizens promised a protest at the convention.

Conference organizers estimated about 1,500 would participate in its goal of “fostering difficult and critical dialogues around white supremacy, white privilege, diversity, multicultural education and leadership, social & economic justice, and the intersecting systems of privilege and oppression.

This conference has been held at a variety of other locations previously, but Minnesota has established a reputation for controversies like this.

WND previously reported when a lawyer for the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus confirmed to an educational rights organization that a plan described by a critic as teaching America as a “hellhole” hasn’t been adopted, and came about because of brainstorming efforts by the education department.

The issue of the program at University of Minnesota-Twin Cities was raised by officials with The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education at the time.

The group questioned President Robert Bruinicks about the legality of the program. The proposal included the suggestion of examinations of teacher candidates on “white privilege” as well as “remedial re-education” for those who hold the “wrong” views.
