As I wrote in a previous commentary, the vast percentage of Vermonters have historically opposed slavery, and arrived long after the Abenaki and other native tribes had disappeared. Yet a deliberate infestation of Vermont with so-called “progressive” ideology commenced in the 1970s, and has now swept every aspect of Vermont government in the form of a “social justice” that is ideologically similar to the eugenics movement that these same progressives developed 100 years ago. Just as that eugenics movement was orchestrated by wealthy elitists, so too is the present subjugation of native Vermonters.
The eugenics movement targeted poor and Abenaki people in Vermont. Today’s effort resembles The “Planet of the Apes” movie — now the white Vermonters awake in a macabre future in which they are ruled not by apes, but by racists. These racists exploit Abenaki suffering — but it is unclear by what authority wealthy people like Vermont’s Director of Racial Equity, Xusana Davis, a recent Vermont emigre of immigrant descent, claim the right to condemn Vermonters on behalf of Abenaki.
In Vermont’s latest remake of “The Planet of the Apes,” a real-life perversion of the Civil Rights movement is realized:
It’s worth remembering that the racial conflicts and the struggle for civil rights in the 1960s underpin the original films. The traditional evolutionary hierarchy is inverted. Apes are superior to humans and humans (who are unable to speak) are viewed as mere animals by the apes. This treatment of the issue might seem heavy handed, and it did attract criticism. In a review of Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), Ed Gonzales commented of the original film: ‘That sly allegory was hatefully perverted by white supremacists, even deemed derogatory by some in the Black Power movement, but its provocation is unmistakable as one directed against the forces of institutionalized racism.’
The controversy about Whoopi Goldberg’s shocking ignorance about the Holocaust, expressed in her self-proclaimed authority “as a black woman,” reflects the race-centered focus harmfully unfolding in Vermont. It also affirms the fundamental and unavoidable new anti-semitism of critical race theory and BLM activism — Jews are wealthy, and therefore oppressors, and thus the victims of the Holocaust are now themselves labeled white supremacists.
Ironically, Whoopi applied a similar nonsense to the Planet of the Apes movies:
Actress Whoopi Goldberg and Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson engaged in a Twitter feud Wednesday after Goldberg said McKesson should “get over himself” after the activist tweeted that the movie “Planet of the Apes” was racist. … ‘DeRay, you need to go back and watch the 1968 original and check out what the apes were wearing. This has nothing to do with you,’ Goldberg said on Wednesday’s taping of ‘The View,’ arguing that the movie wasn’t about race but about environmentalism. … ‘This was a movie about what happens when mankind doesn’t pay attention to the environment, to how we treat animals and each other,’ she continued. ‘That’s what that movie was about. … Get over yourself!’
The progressive racists who have invaded Vermont blend in the Whoopi ideology — they attack Vermonters for being white, and for how they treat animals and the environment! Social justice warriors are the self-appointed moral Taliban for Abenaki, women, the environment, and all non-human life. They condemn America, its history, and its Constitution, and treat “native” white Vermonters with contempt.
I just used a racist adjective to distinguish between “native” Vermonters. This is precisely what the race-hustling Vermont-haters do. Xusana Davis is the first to use a race-stick to measure worthiness to be a Vermonter. “When people declare themselves ‘native’ Vermonters, Davis is apt to ask, without missing a beat, whether they mean that they are Abenaki,” Seven Days reported.
In a 2021 VTDigger interview, Davis finds it “interesting” to discover white people in Vermont, and says “we’re not doing great” on diversity because Vermont is 94% white:
What’s most interesting to me is that when we think about a typical Vermonter, it is often the case that people envision somebody who may be white. Oftentimes, people who are white who maybe are born and raised in Vermont, they’ll say, “I’m a native Vermonter.” And I always think, oh, you’re Abenaki? Because if you’re really a native Vermonter, then you’re probably indigenous to the land. But if that’s not the case, then what does that say about the way that we use language, the way that we think about being native to a place? The way that we think about ownership, not just of the physical land, but also of the culture and what it means to be from there?
Davis adds in her interview: “So when I think about the intersection of race and belonging, and ‘Vermontiness,’ I’m thinking about all of those things — and the way that the message around who’s a real Vermonter circulates so much around whiteness and proximity to whiteness, as opposed to being rooted in the recognition that this remains unceded land, and that we all exist on this territory as a result of force, biological warfare, and the manipulation of laws that keeps some people buoyed by the system and others oppressed by it. So when it comes to a sense of belonging, I think we really have to reckon with that.”
In her interview with Seven Days, Davis condemns Vermont’s police as being associated with a “para-militaristic slave-catching history,” and regularly claims Vermonters don’t own their land. She said “we have to acknowledge that Vermont land was never actually ceded by the indigenous people here,” and added, “so as we think about how we are going to utilize the land, we have to keep that in mind. Lifting up indigenous voices, and making sure that the Abenaki community has a big role in helping to shape the destiny of the state, is of critical importance.”
This is absurd, and Vermonters are being compelled to listen to this toxic race-hate by and through their own government. Apparently the Equal Protection clause (which protects all races) has been discarded. But by what authority does Xusana Davis, or any white liberal, claim to seize white people’s lands on behalf of Abenaki gone for 500 years? If wealth disparity and “equity” are considered, who is the affluent Xusana Davis to traipse into the Green Mountains and dole out retributions against the dirt-poor white Vermonters who comprise the majority of our poor?
To understand just how hateful and enslaving this ideology is against white Vermonters, I will discuss in Part 3 of this analysis more details of what is being done to Vermonters by these race-hustling carpetbaggers.
