Critical Race Theory is one of the most hotly contested topics today. But, most people can’t tell for sure the difference, the limits, and the real context of it.

So, to freshen you up a bit, let me share a few words of Christopher Rufo, writer, and editor in his co-owned outlet, the City Journal.

According to Rufo:

“In explaining critical race theory, it helps to begin with a brief history of Marxism. Originally, the Marxist Left built its political program on the theory of class conflict. Marx believed that the primary characteristic of industrial societies was the imbalance of power between capitalists and workers. The solution to that imbalance, according to Marx, was revolution: the workers would eventually gain consciousness of their plight, seize the means of production, overthrow the capitalist class, and usher in a new socialist society.

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.

There are a series of euphemisms deployed by its supporters to describe critical race theory, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion,” and “culturally responsive teaching.” Critical race theorists, masters of language construction, realize that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell. Equity, on the other hand, sounds non-threatening and is easily confused with the American principle of equality. But the distinction is vast and important.”

And this brave teacher, Daniel Buck, took to Twitter to get the word out about what is really going on with it.

Buck is a teacher in Wisconsin with a master’s in education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Here’s what Buck says about the Critical Race Theory:

“Look, Twitter, I’m about to drive home. But I keep seeing this take. Critical Race Theory is not in schools. It’s all a Republican lie. It’s gaslighting, rah rah rah rah. Okay. Critical Race Theory, critical pedagogy, all of it. Not just critical race theory, but critical pedagogy is in schools. To suggest otherwise is patently false. Gloria Ladson Billings, in the 1990s, wrote a paper. What is Critical Race Theory doing in a nice field, like education? Okay, in the 90s. Kimberly Crenshaw wrote another scholarly article about celebrating 20 years of Critical Race Theory. And in it, she says Critical Race Theory has worked its way into all sorts of different fields, including philosophy, economics, and education. Paolo Ferry, not a Critical Race Theorist, but he is a critical pedagogy or pedagogue, is one of the most assigned texts in schools of education. Okay, are students reading Richard Delgado, a Critical Race Theorist in high school classrooms? No. But the language, the theory, the philosophy, the application, the arguments, the policies of critical theory, in general, not just Critical Race Theory, are worked into every part of schooling right now. Okay, it starts in the academy, and then it leaks on to everything else. There are interesting discussions to be had about whether or not a high school student could learn about critical theory, like they learn about communism or capitalism, okay. These are debates that we can have. But we got to start from a place of truth, which is that critical theory is in K-12 education, okay. I’m a teacher. Make sure to follow this. Not a lot of people are saying this. And a lot of teachers are, but I know other people are thinking it, so make sure to retweet, like and follow. Have a great day. I want to go play with my dog now that the workday is done.”

Another thing that Dems like to say, is that politicians have “worked up” parents and fed them lies.

That’s also not true.

What happened to a lot of parents, is that when their kids were under lockdown and had to go to “Zoom class,” they got to see what was going on in their classrooms – some for the first time – and were shocked and horrified.

Many people think this is the left’s way to indoctrinate young and impressionable minds… and given Dems past history, it’s not a stretch to believe that, is it?
