Woke Supremacy: SpongeBob SquarePants Is a Violent, Racist Colonizer

Good morning, Clown World!

What is happening in our world of woke supremacy?

Yesterday, it was Victoria’s Secret hiring transsexual and overweight models after being criticized for its lack of inclusivity. The day before that it was a shy boy in Britain being arrested and convicted of sexual assault for approaching a girl. The day before that it was CNN hosting an LGBTQ Townhall where Pete Buttigieg explained how as a cisgendered gay man he didn’t fully understand the nuances of oppression experienced by black transgender women.

This morning the cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants is because accused of violent, racist settler colonialism in Oceania in an academic journal at the University of Washington.

Comicbook.com:

“In an article entitled “Unsettling SpongeBob and the legacies of Violence on Bikini Bottom” published in “The Contemporary Pacific: A Journal of Island Affairs”, Barker presents an argument that SpongeBob SquarePants as well as the other characters in the series are normalizing the taking of land while also contributing to the erasure of the indigenous people living there, specifically referring to the location of Bikini Bottom being a real, non-fiction place.

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 nonfiction homeland,” Barker writes (via Fox News).

She goes on to note that the colonization of Bikini Bottom is “violent” and “racist”. She also makes the claim that the series is a whitewashed version of the real-life activities carried out by the American military against native populations in the Pacific. …”

FOX News:

“Other issues for Barker: a perceived imbalance between male and female characters, and the name “Bob” representing an everyman rather than a culturally appropriate character

In the article, Barker claims that because of these themes, children have “become acculturated to an ideology that includes the U.S. character SpongeBob residing on another people’s homeland. …”

What kind of person would say such a thing?

ABSTRACT

“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. 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.”

Holly M. Barker appears to be exactly the sort of childless, insane woman described by Ann Coulter in his interview with Eric Metaxas. She is exactly what you would expect to find though in any American Anthropology or Sociology department. There is nothing at all unusual about this take on SpongeBob SquarePants. That’s the norm in these fields.

It was people like the cultural anthropologist Franz Boas and especially his student Margaret Mead who laid the foundation of Clown World in the early 20th century with her takes on South Pacific Islanders. She argued that human nature was infinitely malleable.

    These people have to politicalize everything! I suppose they will go after Tom and Jerry next, because Tom is always chasing a little brown mouse, who is obvisiously (to them I’ll bet!) A representative of all the ‘oppressed’ brown people in the world!

    • Frito-Lay cucked to chicano activists, and retired the cartoon character “Frito Bandito” decades ago.

  2. I thought he was a fag to promote fag interests.

  3. Stop denying spongebobs violent history in bikini bottom hunter , soon we will discover the ‘camps’ and mass killing burial sites any day now. Face it folks Spongebob squarepants is a genocidal dictator just like stalin and hitler

  4. I thought “it” was a male at first despite the dangle earrings. It was only after I read the narrative that it was a “Holly” and was, in some form, female. This is just another case of pure mental illness. But, is it the effects of vaccinations (what the f*ck is in them???), Ritalin (inflicts permanent damage), fluoride (a neurotoxin), or some other “control mechanism” product. These things called progressives are going to get worse with time. I think they will far, far exceed anything in Idiocracy.

      We are going to need another Stalin to clean up this mess, madame. Hitler was too mild.

      • Spahn,

        Now your talking like my old friend Gerhard Lauck of the NSDAP-AO who once told Diane Sawyer that Hitler was too much a humanitarian.

  5. This is the sort of pseudo-academic malarkey that is absolutely necessary in today’s WHacademia.

    Why? Because there are simply too many MA/PhD candidates admitted to programs, to keep useless universities solvent! Then, add to that these ‘doctoral wannabes’ are all searching for SOME NEW TOPIC with which to write their theses/dissertations, and you can begin to see the self-perpetuating nature of the modern Academy/Diploma Mill.

    Instead of discriminating in the application process of prior decades, [which rightly kept out women, sodomites, non-whites, and other lesser intellects] today’s managerial class, (while still lusting after money, power, and prestige) has obliterated royalty, nobility, and class- EXCEPT for the ‘ACADEMIC Class’- which was (due the nature of the work involved) in prior eras, a class of either absolutely brilliant teachers, or stellar researchers.

    Trouble is, you rarely get either, as anyone who has suffered through a 300-person “Intro to Psych” class at a major institution finds, upon learning that a Graduate Teaching Assistant [TA] has been ‘assigned’ your class- which is a travesty, in that most Grad students under the age of, say, 30, know NOTHING about ANYTHING, and yet, are supposed to ‘teach’ those, who know less about even less!

    When the first ‘women’s studies’ classes began, back in the dark ages, it was sheer propaganda. But, because the feminist hormone-fest was popular in the ‘bra-burning’ era of the 1970’s (before women en masse began to consider Moloch baby-offering a more potent form of witchcraft), institutions continued to give such legitimacy. Then it was WOmen’s Studies DEPARTMENTS, which then led to every OTHER ‘grievance industry’ begin given the Institution’s “Imprimatur” – and that is what leads us to today’s pseudo-Colleges and Multiversities, where INDOCTRINATION has replaced EDUCATION.

    Instead of ‘the unexamined life is not worth living,’ now we have ‘Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western Culture’s got to go.’
    Truly, a band of college-age Rightists should march at this whore’s institution, and barrage her with bullhorns, placards, and other Leftist/Bolshevik style tactics, until she is made to resign, and lose her tenure.

    Women are to keep silent- especially when they puke forth such garbage and call it ‘research.’

  6. “She argued that human nature was infinitely malleable.”

    It’s malleable alright. But you’ll drive the subject(s) insane in the process. Literally, not figuratively.

    You can perfect Humanity. But you would haf to remove certain qualities such that the end product could no longer rightfully be called Human.

    This will not have the desired effect the Left believes it will. On the contrary, it will have absolutely the worst possible effect. I know plenty of intelligent, broadly conservative, and generally pleasant/agreeable Asian-American millennials and older zoomers, and if there is anything that these people all love it is Spongebob. They will not tolerate this absurdity and will in fact likely begin to question a lot of the other wokeleft talking points – and that’s assuming that the average Asian believes or cares about these talking points anyway. Asians are better at being “racist” than whites, and are not culturally (perhaps not even genetically) burdened by a guilt-based moral/ethical system like westerners, so it’s my theory that, provided the young ones can shake off any shame associated being “racist,” then they can basically be made into populist allies for whites against the left’s weaponized minorities, even if only in the short term.

    Academics come out with dumb statements like this because they want attention and funding. If it was up to me I’d shut down every goddamn university, church and school, because they are all anti-white cultural Marxist pig-sties.
