Understanding and Battling Critical Race Theory

from Christopher F. Rufo for Hillsdale College:

Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It

Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula. read more

Schools are Becoming Increasingly Worthless

from the Federalist:

Your Kids Would Be Better Off Feral Than Going To Schools That Make Them Anti-American Racists

Critical Race Theory in a Nutshell

State-sponsored instruction that makes your child a dogmatic racist relativist is not worth any benefit you feel schools give in return. Not a single one. Being Mowgli would be better.

To obtain or keep teaching licenses, Illinois now requires all K-12 teachers to indoctrinate their students in critical race theory, destructive lies about sex and gender, and other leftist mind poison. The rules clearly communicate that in Illinois public schools are no longer places to learn, but places children will be lied to, manipulated, and warehoused as wards of a corrupt and malevolent state. And this kind of schooling is spreading nationwide.

Every decent parent, family, and church should refuse to allow this kind of instruction to be inflicted upon the children in their care, and assume personal responsibility for securing their genuine education outside such anti-public schools. Those who do not are abdicating their sacred duty to teach their children to love and know the truth.

The new Illinois rules require teachers to demonstrate that they “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives.” It clearly specifies that these include incorporating into all their teaching and curricula neo-Marxist falsehoods about race and sex, and actively discriminate based on religion, viewpoint, and race. The rules require teachers to:

  • Directly oppose and undermine the concept of objective truth: “Understand and value… that there is not one ‘correct’ way of doing or understanding something, and that what is seen as ‘correct’ is most often based on our lived experiences.” This is an exercise in forcing people to affirm two contradictory things, as the rest of the requirements are extremely dogmatic, not open to any other “way of doing or understanding something.”

 

  • Treat themselves and students as a determined product of their race, sex, and sexual behavior: “Recognize how their identity (race/ethnicity, national origin, language, sex and gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical/developmental/emotional ability, socioeconomic class, religion, etc.) affects their perspectives and beliefs about pedagogy and students.”

Biden says “No Mas” to the Latest Caravan of Illegals

by: Brent Smith

Oh Yeah – I’m sure this is exactly what the latest migrant caravan wants to here – don’t come now.

After all the wailing about the Trump administration refusing the angelic migrants entrance into our nation, and the promise from leftists that once we take charge, you’ll all be welcome is turning out to be just another leftist lie.

And why? Well, maybe it is really that they’ll all be let in, but it’ll just take some time as the Biden people are saying. Or maybe it’s something else.

Now I’m just spit-balling here, but the dirty dems did just prove that they’ve discovered (fabricated) the means to win an election without additional illegal alien votes. And historically, if the left doesn’t need you – if you don’t or can’t further their agenda, they’ll toss you aside. Maybe that’s it.

In any event, the Biden people are asking the latest caravan not to come right now.

Now Trump is Saddam Hussein – How Despicable

If you’re surprised by the behavior of Joy Reid, the anti-Semitic, racist, racialist, leftist radical from MSNBC, you haven’t been paying attention. For this is certainly nothing new for Reid.

But still, this is as low as a snake’s belly.Joy Reid: Trump may be bad at being president, but he's good at TV

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Calls For ‘De-Baathification’ Of The GOP

MSNBC’s Joy Reid, joined by her colleague Nicolle Wallace, called for the de-Baathification and scouring of the current Republican Party following four years of leadership under President Donald Trump. read more

Virtue Signalling doesn’t always Work

by: Brent Smith

So this is rich, and maybe even a little delicious. After all the identity politics and feminist virtue signalling, not even the first female college football faux-player could save even a black man’s job.

It was my understanding that black football coaches were pretty safe from reprimand and firing. But apparently I’m wrong. Despite being black, Vanderbilt sacked it’s head coach, maybe … just maybe because he sucks and not necessarily because he’s black. read more

Columbus Wasn’t Indigenous – Neither Were American Indians

by: Brent Smith

As another Columbus Day is upon us, we are reminded again why the loony left is so aptly named and why we describe them as “low information.”

We all know Columbus didn’t just innocently “sail the ocean blue in 1492.” We all know it should be: “Columbus came in with the tide, for the sole purpose of Genocide.”

We know Ferdinand and Isabella said: “So Chris – we hear you want to sail off and discover a new world or something.” And Columbus said: “Nah – I thought I’d go kill some Injuns.” “Great Idea – here’s some cash for the trip.”

And for this reason, leftists across the nation have been protesting the celebration of this murderer. Instead of Columbus Day, many cities and enclaves of higher learning have begun making the politically correct change to “Indigenous People’s Day, and
First Peoples Day.” A few years ago Seattle made the switch to “a holiday that will honor and celebrate the cultural contributions of Native Americans.” Hooray for Indigenous People! Boo for genocidal European illegal immigrant interlopers! read more

A Punch in the Face Doesn’t Even Register

by: Brent Smith

Please read the following paragraphs from an article at Campus Reform and see if you can find what’s missing.

The article is entitled, “OSU: Derogatory terms against Whites ‘do not have the same impact’ as on minorities.”

As I don’t have Campus Reform’s permission to reprint the entire piece, I just pulled the most salient parts to make the point.

And don’t blame the author, Lela Gallery, for not pointing it out. She was doing what an actual reporter is supposed to do – report the facts without bias, allowing the reader to conclude what they will. Leftist so-called journalists should try it sometime. read more

Diversity or Competence – Which would You Choose?

from Walter E. Williams for TownHall:

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Nonsense

Check out any professional and most college basketball teams. Their starting five, and most of their other 10 players, are black, as is 80% of the NBA. This does not come anywhere close to the diversity and inclusion sought by the nation’s social justice warriors. Both professional and college coaches have ignored and threw any pretense of seeking diversity and inclusiveness.

White Men must become Full Diversity Partners

‘Deeply Disturbing’: Sen. Hawley Reacts To Documents Detailing ‘White Men’s Caucus’ Race Training In US Nuclear Facility

Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley wrote a letter on Thursday to U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette demanding an explanation for racially segregated diversity and inclusion training at a federally-funded U.S. nuclear facility.

Leaked documents reported by City Journal contributing editor Christopher Rufo this week revealed a three-day mandatory training in 2019 for white male executives at Sandia National Laboratories, a government contractor that assesses U.S. nuclear weapons. read more

Can we all just stop pretending Biden is in charge of this ticket? CNN probably won’t, but for a brief moment in time last night, the liberal network managed to say the quiet part out loud about Harris taking over for Biden. In what was a rather awkward headline, Chris Cillizza’s piece on the VP pick described things this way. read more
