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
It’s hard to say which radical leftist political hack is the dumbest of them all. Or maybe they’re not as stupid as they act and sound, but instead try to act so woke that it just seems this way.
I might think this of some democrats, especially the older ones – the Schumers and Pelosis. Neither of them are as dimwitted as they sound, but they’re forced to bend themselves into pretzels to remain viable to the new crop of leftist democrats, some of whom really just stupid and angry. read more
According to a number sources on the interweb, including her own website, the subject of the following Blaze article is a “Psychologist, Professor and Preacher – Healing the legacies of racial and gender oppression.”
Now I’ve met a number of ministers, priests, monks and preachers in my time. And not one has shared that he has prayed to God to help “hate” anyone. read more
Today I discuss a bill that is being proposed in Kentucky, by a Republican, which will make it a crime, a Class B misdemeanor, if they (protesters or rioters), “accost, insult, taunt, or challenge a law enforcement officer with offensive or derisive words, or by gestures or other physical contact, that would have a direct tendency to provoke a violent response from the perspective of a reasonable and prudent person.”
Well isn’t that vague and ridiculous, lumping in words with violent acts. How convenient. And isn’t it always the way. Bad policy always begins with well-meaning Republicans, unable to comprehend the slippery slope they put us on, as not-well-meaning leftists eventually get a hold of it. read more
There is an idea or saying called Six Degrees of Separation, where all people on average are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. A derivative of this is a game, called Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, where you choose 6 celebrities, and through a similar process, all roads lead to Kevin Bacon. I’ve never tried it, but I understand it does work.
However, the left is more apt to play Six Degrees of Racism, where they choose six political or current event topics (one and the same for leftists), and eventually all roads will lead back to racism.
To the casual observer, this may seem incongruous, but as racism is a leftist’s go-to, can’t-fail play, it is logical that every thought or emotion will lead back to racism.
The Daily Wire has chronicled another such example.
from the Daily Wire:
Illinois ‘Anti-Racist’ Training: Expecting People Of Color To Teach White People Is ‘Covert White Supremacy’
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.”
Well this sounds at least as bad as it truly is. The indoctrination of our youth continues and likely will now go into hyper-drive, or perhaps even ludicrous-speed, now that the leftists have taken control of the national stage, and thus the U.S. Department of Education.
The Blaze article below uses the term “alleged” on more than one occasion, which means that the story has yet to be confirmed for sure. However, it’s also one of the instances where you just read and say, yeah, I can believe they would do that, knowing how radical and pro-Marxist a lot of the public school teaching profession has become. Don’t worry about kids not reading or writing or becoming proficient in math. No, let’s have a black power rally instead.
And a student rally for the black communist radical Angela Davis? Please! But hey – why not – after all, she did endorse Joe Biden.
I read an article in the New York Times last week that I found both fascinating and disappointing. Although, I must admit, the disappointing part was wholly expected.
It is entitled, “He Wants to Save Classics From Whiteness. Can the Field Survive?”
“Dan-el Padilla Peralta thinks classicists should knock ancient Greece and Rome off their pedestal — even if that means destroying their discipline.”
Yesterday an article was posted at Campus Reform that the “Harvard Kennedy School students sent an open letter to administrators demanding racial equity actions, including a mandatory anti-racism course for Masters degree students and a full “audit” of the curriculum using an “anti-racist, anti-colonial lens.”
Evidently over 200 students are demanding this new “equity-based” curriculum.
I discuss the difference between the old standard of demanding equality to now demanding equity.

Did you ever notice that the people who cry racism the loudest and most often are white college professors. It’s almost as if they were trained in school to become Guilty White Leftists. It’s uncanny. And here’s yet another.
from Campus Reform:
According to this professor, ‘Science, statistics, and technology are all inherently racist’
