EXCLUSIVE: Seattle teachers' union offering 'affinity groups' for 'white Jewish and white co-conspirators'

"It is a time for White Co-Conspirators to critically analyze their personal and structural actions within our jobs and outside world in order to grow their anti-racist skills."

A Seattle teachers' union is offering "affinity groups" for "white Jewish and white co-conspirators" in order to "…grow their anti-racist skills." The groups can be counter towards teachers' "clock hours" as part of their required continuing education.

The Seattle Education Association (SEA), the union for teachers in Seattle Public Schools, sent an email obtained by The Post Millennial, to their members on February 8 advertising the event.

According to the description of the event, "The SEA White Co-Conspirators Affinity Group is a space for our white co-conspirators to work intentionally on understanding white culture, white supremacy, and white privilege. It is a time for White Co-Conspirators to critically analyze their personal and structural actions within our jobs and outside world in order to grow their anti-racist skills."

"We are also holding a White Jewish Co-Conspirators Affinity Space from 4:30-5:30 PM to help every educator feel brave in our anti-racist work!"

The group is offered every other month during the school year. The email also included an invitation for SEA’s Educators of Color Caucus which "…is a place for us to come together to create a space for healing and work together to organize for liberation. In the EOC Caucus, we will hold an affinity space to process through the impact of racism within our jobs and the outside world. The affinity space will additionally be a time to find joy together. However, that is not enough. We also want to start thinking about how to organize together for liberation and what we need to build out in our SEA in order to achieve this."

Justine Brooke, formerly of Campus Reform and current Turning Point USA Ambassador told The Post Millennial that she signed up for the group and was given the option to identify as 'Jewish' when she registered for the group. When the group began she was promptly barred from the Zoom session with no explanation given.

Brooke told The Post Millennial, "'Progressive' educators are pedaling the same racist stereotype driving the persecution of Jews since the beginning of time: that we are monied and privilege, stepping on the rest of society. Most members of polite society now condemn when Hitler and the Nazis peddled this rhetoric. Now, the antisemites have realized it’s kosher to peddle the same hatred as long as they lump all Jews with whites and persecute us in the veneer of Social Justice, or in this case, 'anti-racism,' which generalizes one entire race of people that they owe something to everybody else and must ‘pay back’ for somehow wronging the rest of the world."

"These re-education 'training' sessions put on by the Seattle teacher’s union are lumping Jews into that group of "evil white oppressors,'" Brooke added. "To fit the modern day requirements of what it means to be and ‘anti-racist’ you must be an antisemite. What’s the disturbing is the fact they’re teaching students this."

"Jews are White now that it’s considered bad to be White. When it was considered bad to be non-white, we were non white."

Brooke continued, "It seemed like the hosts of tonight’s re-education session were only going allow the 'good' Jews in the meeting who apologize for being Jewish and adopt their narrative about us. I was forced to say whether or not I 'identify as Jewish.' What has changed since the times when academic institutions placed racial quotas on admitting Jews?"

This form of discrimination against Jews was recently thrust into the limelight when host of The View Whoopi Goldberg was suspended from the show for two weeks by ABC after claiming that the Holocaust was "…not about race" but rather about "man's inhumanity to man."

Her rationale was that the Holocaust involved two groups of white people. She then doubled down on those remarks during an interview with Stephen Colbert before apologizing via Twitter and again the next day on The View before her suspension.

Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Education Association did not respond to requests for comment.
