Perhaps a seance…

The Kennedy School misunderstands the word “conservative.”  Conservatives believes in the rule of law which allows each person to pursue her own individuality so long as she doesn’t harm others.  Pseudo-conservatives dominate and kill whole populations.  The receivership of Flint and the rerouting of poisoned water into the city has crippled young black children permanently as well as poisoning adults. Lead damage is irreversible and has lifelong, augmenting effects.  It is as bad a racist crime as one can imagine. Snyder refused to listen as people protested, and tried to deny the heroic work of Dr. Mona Hanna-Atisha who exposed it.  And as Michael Moore’s movie “Fahrenheit 11/9” shows, the poisoning continues because Obama, too, did not stand up to it.

        Being a “fiscal conservative” here refers being an opponent of democracy (receivership) who with malice aforethought kills people – against long public  outcry backed by medical evidence – is another terrible slur on conservatives.

     Perhaps this school of Public Policy might focus on better analogies to its moral sympathies.  James O. Eastland was a “conservative” (sometimes even a “liberal)” toward “white” people.  Under Jim Crow, over 4,000 black people were lynched and thousands of his “voters” took their children to picnics to “experience” the spectacle.

       Heinrich Himmler helped organize mass murder of Jews, Roma, mental patients and the colonization of the “Wild East” through invasions against Poles, Ukrainians and Russians.  Himmler and the death camps were terribly efficient in their slaughters.  Perhaps they should rename the fellowship for one of these gentlemen.  Maybe a  séance with Himmler and the Governor channeling Anglo-Saxon/Aryan spirit could earn some government funding…   

      It is an honor to Chelsea Manning who stood up, at a great price, against the criminality of American foreign policy that she was disinvited at the Kennedy School.  Dr. Hanna-Atisha won the 2016 Stephen Gools award for social change from Hurley’s Children Center in Flint and received a $250,000 fellowship from the Heinz Foundation.  Choosing her reflected a sense of decency and intelligence. That the Kennedy School lacks…
