Meet the Craziest Anti-Israel Boycotter

screen-shot-2014-04-03-at-12-51-53-pm

The BDS movement is nuts. But even within every nutty movement, there is a horrifying walnut of insanity that no one can crack.

And that brings us to Kat-Yang Stevens.

Ms. Stevens showed up at the Cornell Student Assembly BDS divestment resolution debate, where it lost badly, and apparently began screaming a lot.

It goes without saying that she isn’t a student. But what she is defies description. Let’s let her speak for herself.

 

Confused?

Let’s try adding some vowels and fixing the spelling.

“My organizing 2 bring down colonialist white supremacist cisheteropatriarchy transcends the physical.”

That doesn’t help much. I know. Let’s try a Twitter bio.

Queer-Cis-Asian Am.-Settler/ writer / educator / agitator / organizer // smashing colonialist imperialist capitalist white supremacist cis-hetero patriarchy

Something more detailed maybe?

Kat Yang-Stevens is a cisgender queer woman and first generation Asian American of Chinese ancestry. Kat grew up on and currently lives on occupied territories belonging to the Onondaga & Cayuga Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy in so-called New York.

Full Time Unpaid Community Organizer

In other words, she’s a lesbian who took too many useless college courses before dropping out to annoy people full time.

The last one is the least surprising and the least confusing. And of course she has a zine. Because it’s 1982 on her planet. You can order an issue for only $13 or you can buy five cups of hot coffee and spill them all over yourself. I’m not sure which is a better use of your money.

She hates Keystone, accuses environmental groups of racism and claims to have narrowly avoided the “school to prison pipeline”. Apparently that’s a major problem for spoiled Taiwanese brats living in occupied New York.

Also she claims to have PTSD (what unpaid full time community organizer doesn’t?) and is constantly being victimized by fellow lefties, who, for some inexplicable reason, claim that she’s insane, when she’s only confronting their white supremacism. Also she likes to refer to herself in the third person using gender neutral pronouns to define her identify.

“Kat uses gender neutral pronouns to define themselves and their identity. Those pronouns look like: they, them, their, themselves, etc. Please hold this in your consciousness while you are reading this document to avoid confusion.”

Yes, please securely fasten this in your consciousness.

Kat Yang Stevens has many well thought out ideas that she likes to share with the world.

 

Duh. Obviously.

 

Darn that Zionist patriarchy. Always interfering with a glorious feminist Muslim Caliphate which might consider allowing women to drive cars.

 

If only Kat Yang Stevens could find some land that isn’t stolen from anyone. I hear Antarctica is available.

 

But not when Jews accuse people like Stevens of anti-semitism. That she claims the right to question.

 

You too can be a settle and engage in ritual self-shaming/bragging, even if you’re a woman of color.

When Kat isn’t yelling at people on Twitter about white supremacism, she’s a delightfully fun person who is yelling at them about white supremacism off Twitter.

Here’s a sample of her account of her battle against gender neutral pronoun microaggressions at an anti-racist cooperative.

Partners Ryan “Clover” Owens and “Friede” Lisa Sanders, previously close friends of Kat who had organized with Kat around environmental issues in the past, persuaded (and, at one point, begged to ease their own financial burdens) Kat to sublet a room and then to move into Ghostcat, known as a cooperative and collectively run house in downtown Ithaca for social/environmental justice organizers. Ryan and Friede presented living at Ghostcat as an opportunity to create a healing space with the support of the collective that they had repeatedly vocally asserted was an “anti-racist, anti-colonial, anti-hierarchical, feminist” space.

Less than two weeks after moving in, Ryan informed Kat that it was not okay for Kat to use gender-neutral pronouns because “Kat is not trans” implying that only trans people are “allowed” to use gender-neutral pronouns, he also consistently refused to address Kat with the pronouns they use. Kat’s (polite) refusal to allow Ryan to dictate their gender pronouns was the first instance in which it became evident that, like many other of Ryan’s microaggressions, this was not about topic or content, but about Ryan’s consistent need to be the authority and most valid voice in the household.

It’s really amazing that the left ever gets anything done. Some more samples from this electric kool aid adventure.

Ryan also insisted that the argument between Kat and Tyler resulted in an ex-Ghostcat housemate and friend of Ryan’s who was visiting that night to become “triggered” by Kat’s “violent yelling”

During a house meeting when Kat expressed concerns about the unilateral decision (made by Ryan and Friede and a housemate no longer even living in the space) to incorporate Hope Rainbow into the Ghostcat Collective,

Kat then tried to explain how unfair that was and how it’s actually racist to say that Kat was a threatening presence in the house simply because Kat is known for addressing dynamics of white supremacy.

Hope then signed the lease for Ghostcat, allowing Ryan and Friede to leverage Hope’s greater access to financial resources (which had enabled her rather than Kat to sign) and a classist, capitalist logic of property ownership, to unilaterally dissolve Ghostcat as a collective.

Hope, a white woman, had hair that she had fashioned into “dreadlocks”, which have a vile history that has been reappropriated in part as a symbol of Black power and to reject white culture.

Kat and Kenton had to immediately move their stuff out with the help of several friends. While they were doing so, some people acted out — in their long-term anger against Ryan’s history of manipulative and exclusionary behavior, and the dissolution of the only radical political collective in Ithaca — by damaging one item of furniture, messing up a spice rack, and writing messages on posters and mirrors that named Ryan, Friede, “Mateo”, and Hope as liars and questioned their “radical” credentials.

Ryan indicated on several occasions that people involved are “lucky” that he didn’t call the police. Ryan has been using this incident ever since to justify repeated attempts to make Kat houseless from other living spaces, to delegitimize Kat as an organizer, housemate and person, and promote his narrative that privileges his own “safety.” He has been able to spread this narrative, that is, by taking advantage of people’s unconscious capitalist assumption that property is more valuable than people, and of society’s racist tendency to automatically label those who act out of a place of ongoing, extreme marginalization and oppression as “dangerous” and “criminal.”

I really think that if we forced the entire left to live in one big collective together, by next spring there would just be a pile of bodies alongside novel size denunciations of each other.

    I’m betting that Kat also sounds like Curly of the Three Stooges when he goes “woo, woo, woo, woo!” when she’s really in a dither. But then Curly would look like Einstein next to Kat. All apologies to Curly.

    Cow-Young Stupid.

    I got my B.Science at Cornell (with distinction) and there were no Kats there then. I fear we are headed for a coup as more and more Kats are unmasked by such as yourself, DG. See http://clarespark.com/2014/04/19/totalitarianism-2/. ‘Totalitarianism’ (2). I do hold to the sexist stereotype that women are intuitive, though it doesn’t take a clairvoyant to read the tea leaves.

  • A Z

    Kat is Taiwanese?

    I went to two of the links and skimmed them. One of the links said one of the people involved was a Taiwanese/Italian mix It was 10 page or more article (I word searched it). Katy had to have been born in America or moved here before puberty. I found it hard that someone from Taiwan could be that stupid. I would find it harder to believe someone from mainland China could be that stupid, but the generations are changing. Maybe a red price or princess could be that otherworldly.

    I can’t imagine what the parents are going though.

    • John C

      And yet more dumb racism.

      • Pete

        I have been to China more than a few times for business and vacation. I have visited all corners of China except Xinjiang, Manchuria, and Tibet. I know quite a few Chinese, so in my opinion Kat-Yang Stevens is by far the dumbest one I have ever heard or seen.

        So to your dumb point. Am I a racist? Not hardly, but you sure are dumb.

        • John C

          You are both.

          • Pete

            You know of china through … the Leftist literature?

            WOW, that makes you a wise sheeple indeed!

          • John C

            Not very bright, are you? My comment was about the racist generalisation.
            However, several members of my family know China very well.
            As to your implication that I derive information from Leftist literature … it’s hilariously stupid.

          • Pete

            Several members of your family but not you.
            - Very telling. black sheep of the family.

            My comment was about the racist generalisation.”
            Wow, it was racists to say most Chinese are not a b_tt stupid at Kat-Yang? You are in deep, but keep reading that Leftist literature.

          • John C

            “keep reading that Leftist literature” – more of the same dumb crap.
            I don’t read that stuff.
            But at least I can read, which you clearly can’t.

          • Pete

            I don’t read that stuff.” Really?

            When you pick a fight so many people?

            - “Anyone in Greenpeace is worth 10,000 of you.”

            - “One doesn’t get chained to a bed for this kind of psychosis, you ignoramus.” No they use straps and drugs nowadays. So much more humane. The velvet glove was such an improvement over the iron fist.

          • John C

            “When you pick a fight so many people” – look up ‘non sequitur’, idiot.

            “Anyone in Greenpeace is worth 10,000 of you.” – simple fact.

            “No they use straps and drugs nowadays” – not for that kind of condition, ignorant clown.

            You may also want to work on your English syntax. If you know what that is.

          • Pete

            Poor you. I forgot to put the preposition “with” in front of the word ‘so’.

            Sometimes I also transpose the letters r & o, when I type the word from. That must really traumatize you.

          • John C

            Your stupidity may traumatise you, but why should it traumatise me?

          • Pete

            I am not traumatized when I misspell a word, leave one out (while listening to the radio and bouncing between reading the news and replying to you) or magle some grammar. You on the other hand seem positively stricken.

            I can always correct a misspelling or grammar. It will take you much longer to repair any damage you have done jumping down people’s throats.

          • John C

            I see no evidence that you know what ‘stricken’ means.

          • Pete

            No you are definitely stricken.

          • Pete

            Kat Yang is the 2nd non-Indian from New York State that I have heard adopting a a fake Indian ancestry from a made up tribe, which is very delusional.

            Psychiatrists use drugs for deluded people, which makes them lethargic, slow witted and easily handled.

          • John C

            Yes, dear, but not straps unless they pose physical danger to themselves or others, and even then only if antipsychotics and a safe room aren’t enough.
            How about you write about things you know something about?

          • Pete

            And you know more than I?

  • Jane Meep

    All your obsessive diatribe does is make me miss Bill Buckley even more. He would have disagreed with her, too, but he would have been a gentleman about it.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      I don’t think you knew him all that well then. Buckley would have been far more devastating if anything.

    • Mark Duran

      And I’m sure you also lectured Cornell’s resident hosebeast on her civility deficiency as well, right?

  • Carlos_Perera

    As Kate McMillan of _Small Dead Animals_ would say, “The children are the future . . . and that’s why I’m stocking up on 5.56mm NATO ammunition.”

  • objectivefactsmatter

    There are lots of people that have no clue about questioning what the difference between what is and what can never be. They focus on visions of an “accessible” Utopia and all of the alleged reasons why they can’t have it. Hint: If you can read this, you’re probably one of the reasons she can’t have it. According to her and her mentors.

  • De Doc

    That thing needs some serious psych meds.

    • Drakken

      Euthanized preferably.

    Why isn’t she chained to a bed in some mental institution? Was she born in America? If not, who allowed her in?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Her type of mental illness in now in the White House

        Scary…

    • John C

      One doesn’t get chained to a bed for this kind of psychosis, you ignoramus.

  • adam

    Sobering thought to think this is what colleges are putting out these days. Just imagine how it will be when they get jobs and government positions, if civilization is even still here at that point.

  • Fritz Kohlhaas

    She needs to be sectioned!!!

  • herb benty

    No wonder common sense eludes these people. Those anti-semitic, marxist profs have done their dirty work well.

  • Abberline

    Someone like her would not last a week in Stalin’s USSR or North Korea. Only on U.S. college campuses could psychotic wretches such as her be given any sort of hearing.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Wretches like her would be sending people off to firing squads… until they got sent themselves.

      • Abberline

        Absolutely, and as they are putting the blind fold over her eyes she will still be denouncing capitalism, Zionism, racism, sexism et al.

  • iluvisrael

    This useful idiot should lead a gay parade in riyadh, damascus or teheran. That’ll shut the pea brained lesbo up for a while.

      Or gay pride hamasstan / gaza.

      • iluvisrael

        It’s a very long list, but that’s the thing about these so called ‘activists’ – most are bratty, phony cowards who don’t have the balls to confront real evil.

  • http://www.aresonableworld.com/ Bradley

    Even though I know people like this hold academic and (some) political positions of power, I cannot stop laughing at the ridiculousness of someone like this. It appears so extreme as to be a parody of leftism/multiculturalism/relativism nonsense, as opposed to a brief look at a real person. I pity any neighbor subjected to Kat.

    I’ve met kids like this working for Greenpeace standing outside the market I go to shaking people down for money.
    They and this one are totally off their meds.

      Well Mike, take them fishing in that boat of yours and see if the sharks get a hankering for them? ;) Just tell them the sharks are really little fishys and the fishys just love them.

    The purest form of Left wing, progressive, Obama loving individual that has walked on two feet. She should run for Chairwoman of the Democrat party.

      Who says that she loves Obama? She probably thinks he is a cisgender patriarchal uncle Tom who lives in land stolen from the Chihuahuas.

      These people don’t love ANYONE but themselves.

    This epic battle basically means the psycho bitch didn’t pay her rent and they kicked her out. What’s sad that people like her manage to make fantastic careers in the surreal, distorted world of socialism.
    She reminds me of Sharikov, one of the characters in brilliant “A Heart of a Dog”. Mikhail Bulgakov’s absurdist parable of the Russian Revolution.
    A world-famous Moscow professor — rich, successful, and violently envied by his neighbors — befriends a stray dog and resolves to achieve a daring scientific first by transplanting into it the testicles and pituitary gland of a dead man. But the results are wholly unexpected: a distinctly and worryingly human animal is on the loose, and the professor’s hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare beyond endurance.

    As in The Master and Margarita, the masterpiece he completed shortly before his death, Mikhail Bulgakov’s early novel, written in 1925, combines outrageously grotesque ideas with a narrative of deadpan naturalism. The Heart of a Dog can be read as an absurd and wonderfully comic story; it can also be read as a fierce parable of the Russian Revolution.
