Time Magazine Says that Helen Keller that was Blind & Deaf was "just another privileged white person

The same liberal rag that just honored Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as it’s “Person(s) of the Year” instead of maybe, the front-line medical professionals who have been working tirelessly on the pandemic, or G-d forbid President Trump for his stewardship over Operation Warp Speed has hit a new low.

TIME Magazine actually did a hit piece on Helen Keller, declaring her to be “just another privileged white person.” 

For those not well versed, Helen Keller was the victim of an undiagnosed illness which rendered her blind and deaf by the age of 19 months old.

Despite all the odds facing her, and in spite of her disabilities and the lack of resources at that time, she raised millions of dollars for the disabled, according to The Blaze.

She also published 12 books and was a leading proponent in the fight for women’s suffrage and rights of disabled Americans.

Keller graduated from Radcliffe College, now known as Harvard University and was the co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Keller was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the highest civilian honor available to average Americans. All of those accomplishments were apparently not good enough for Time. 

A woman named Anita Cameron spoke of Keller, claiming that Keller was not radical, but rather was “just another, despite disabilities, privileged white person,’ calling her story “another example of history telling the story of privileged white Americans.” Wow.

Anita Cameron 

Cameron describes herself as a “fierce black autistic lesbian.” She’s apparently into all the woke labels. She is also a member of the American Disabled for Attendant Programs Today organization, her Twitter profile notes, and of course she’s displaying the heretofore unknown “Black Disabled Lives Matter” banner.

It was that comment that got TIME attention it probably did not want.

Keller clearly had some less than mainstream, ostensibly radical views. For example, TIME noted, “Critics of Helen Keller cite her writings that reflected the popularity of now-dated eugenics theories and her friendship with one of the movement’s supporters Alexander Graham Bell,” TIME said. However TIME added that, “The American Foundation for the Blind archivist Helen Selsdon says Keller ‘moved away from that position.’”

TIME sought to emphasize Keller’s more socialist and radical left-wing ideology as she moved from childhood to an adult.

TIME said most students who learn about Keller “don’t learn that she co-founded the American Civil Liberties Union in 1920; that she was an early supporter of the NAACP, and an opponent of lynching; that she was an early proponent of birth control.”

Call us crazy but those positions don’t sound all that radical compared to the radicals pervasive in America today, and in fact indicate Keller would be pretty comfortable at a support rally for Black Lives Matter. One would think liberals would be all over this.

In fact, Keller “was a member of the Socialist Party, and corresponded with Eugene Debs, the party’s most prominent member and a five-time presidential candidate,” TIME said. “She also read Marx, and her associations with all of these far-left groups landed her on the radar of the FBI, which monitored her for ties to the Communist Party.”
