Comment: That’s how people are supposed to dress in the winter. Maybe Bernie doesn’t own a winter overcoat.
Telling people how to dress and calling them despicable, prejudicial names because some school teacher is a white supremacist hunter and sees privilege in every white person is glaring prejudice and discrimination on her part.
Is she privileged? She’s a school teacher in a public school, who appears to want white people’s money and status without working for it? How about rich Spanish people, are they privileged to her? Rich black people? Rich Chinese? Rich Asian-Indians? Only rich white people? Does she even know any nationalities or does she lump them all together and call them white if they have light-colored skin?
Bernie is a product of the 70s. Guess she wouldn’t know anything about ‘make love not war’ and peace and casual and long hair and dress as you want the way you want mentality of the day, that Bernie continued to carry with him throughout his life. He didn’t ditch it all like so many others.
I don’t see a man in tatters, like this so-called teacher wanted to portray him – a rich man acting poor? No. Blacks and Hispanics do that. I’m surprised she didn’t mention his Jew privilege. Guess she knew that might get her fired.
How did she get a piece published in the San Francisco Chronicle? Must have been some privilege going on there. I’ve been writing for decades and never got anything published in any newspaper. I’m white, what is she? What’s the name of the High School? Too sensitive a subject to reveal? They’re underage? Why is she teaching underage children to hate old white men and how to spot a white supremacist?
She should be removed from the classroom, if this is even real. Is it?
I wonder if this so-called teacher who talks like she’s dirt poor would buy hot clothes and accessories from the streets where she lives, stolen from some high end stores, to attend the inauguration in her kind of style?
A superficial gold-digging person who knows nothing about white people, except to use them as her vehicle to a quick and easy fame – that’s all you need to know about Seyer-Ochi. Where’s the rest of her name? Is that fake too?
Fire the racist for teaching hate to underage children.
It’s beginning to sound like the San Francisco Chronicle had a hand in this charade. The original article makes it sound like Bernie Sanders set himself up as a prop to raise money for under-privileged people. Did he? Or did she?
That bothers me. Why the under-privileged label? I mean using the word should be offensive to this so-called teacher with a hate manifesto that she disseminates to all her students.
And what did she mean by “we” [“This,” she told her students about the images from that day, “is white supremacy, this is white privilege. It can be hard to pinpoint, but when we see, it, we know it.”]”
Are all her students the same race? The same ethnicity? If so, they why so? You mean a person is allowed to accuse someone of ‘white privilege which to her means white supremacy’, and not reveal the identifying color of the ones making the accusations?
White supremacy is white people protesting at the capitol? But black people protesting by burning city centers and attacking police stations is not about black supremacy?
Somebody should enlighten this so-called teacher, that mostly white people protested the Viet Nam war. Yes, at the capitol. Were all of them privileged too?
Seyer-Ochi evidently doesn’t know that in the USA every citizen has the right by law to protest – even white people.
She’s discriminating against white people by calling white people who protest, privileged: “[he manifests privilege, white privilege, male privilege and class privilege, in ways that my students could see and feel,” Seyer-Ochi wrote.]”
- All he was doing was sitting in the blustering cold at the inauguration of Joseph Biden – and she wanted to cash in on it.
Just say an Hispanic or African male rises to fame, success and wealth, do they then manifest Hispanic or African privilege? Can you see and feel it? If she says no or tries to clarify, you know who and what she is. She’s not a teacher. She’s a terrorist looking for a platform and she found it in the San Francisco Chronicle.
How would her poor (I’m assuming) students know what people should or shouldn’t wear to an inauguration as outerwear? She primed them. She planned this attack. Then she used her underage students as backup for her article – an article the San Francisco Chronicle then used to spread hatred toward white people – around the world.
- “[Seyer-Ochi addressed the topic with her students, who she said were also upset by what they saw as the implicit message being delivered by Sanders’s choice of outerwear.
- “What did they see? They saw a white man in a puffy jacket and huge mittens, distant not only in his social distancing, but in his demeanor and attire,” Seyer-Ochi wrote, adding,
- “What did I see? What did I think my students should see? A wealthy, incredibly well-educated and privileged white man, showing up for perhaps the most important ritual of the decade, in a puffy jacket and huge mittens.
Remove this so-called teacher from the classroom. No white student will want to succeed after she has her way with them – if she has white children in her class.
There are some white under age children in her class, right? If so, then she’s indoctrinating them at a young impressionable age to hate their own people, parents even and to avoid success at all cost. You don’t want to end up privileged like them, do you?
If this person of interest to the entire world overnight has no white underage children in her class, then why? Only non-whites need apply?
How do the white kids feel when she’s talking trash about white people? Confused? Probably.
Where does culpability of the San Francisco Chronicle come in? Did they know in advance that this so-called teacher, who is indoctrinating underage children to turn on their white parents, family and friends and to avoid success, used underage children as her sources? Someone at the San Francisco Chronicle read the article; they had to know.
Did they check her story with these children before publishing it? Were those indeed their thoughts – all of them? Do non-journalists have the right to protect their sources, even if they are the ones exploiting them?
“[Seyer-Ochi addressed the topic of Bernie’s casual attire with her students, who she said “were also upset by what they saw as the implicit message being delivered by Sanders’s choice of outerwear”.]”
- So now causal outerwear by white people is seen as white supremacy privilege? And white supremacists implicitly tell the world who they are by the outer clothes they wear, which means absent their awareness?
- A swastika isn’t enough any more? Go for the masses – all white people wear casual outer clothes. Now we got ’em where we want ’em.
This is messed up. Get that person out of the classroom before she indoctrinates more underage minds to explicitly hate white people and before she makes white supremacist hunters out of all them.
That ought to look nice on their college applications: trained in high school in the art and science of hunting white supremacists.
Hey Bernie where’s your hat?
SAN FRANCISCO — Within hours of President Joe Biden’s inauguration, the Internet was consumed by images of Sen. Bernie Sanders sitting, stone-faced, bundled against the cold in a parka and colorful mittens. The meme turned into a fundraising bonanza for nonprofits and a symbol of a new administration getting down to business, as a contrast to the carefully curated image cultivated by its predecessor.
Who could possibly find fault with that?
Well, one person at least, a public high school teacher in San Francisco named Ingrid Seyer-Ochi, who wrote an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle that appeared on Sunday and quickly went viral. Seyer-Ochi’s objection was to the “privilege, white privilege, male privilege and class privilege” symbolized by Sanders’s choice of a relatively casual Burton snowboarding jacket and repurposed wool mittens.
Seyer-Ochi addressed the topic with her students, who she said were also upset by what they saw as the implicit message being delivered by Sanders’s choice of outerwear.
“What did they see? They saw a white man in a puffy jacket and huge mittens, distant not only in his social distancing, but in his demeanor and attire,” Seyer-Ochi wrote, adding, “What did I see? What did I think my students should see? A wealthy, incredibly well-educated and -privileged white man, showing up for perhaps the most important ritual of the decade, in a puffy jacket and huge mittens.
“I don’t know many poor, or working class, or female, or struggling-to-be-taken-seriously folk who would show up at the inauguration of our 46th president dressed like Bernie.”
Prior to the inauguration, Seyer-Ochi had also had her students analyze images from the Jan. 6 riot by supporters of former President Donald Trump at the U.S. Capitol.
“This,” she told her students about the images from that day, “is white supremacy, this is white privilege. It can be hard to pinpoint, but when we see, it, we know it.”…..
