Critical Race Theory Is About Dismantling America.

Critical Race Theory claims to right the wrongs of American history.

Truth be told, Critical Race Theory is trying to dismantle everything in America. It’s about dismantling capitalism and freedom. This means this concept is ultimately about power.

That's exactly why Critical Race Theory goes where there is little to no resistance. Schools. Think about it. Teachers have power over a captive audience of young, impressionable minds. Most young, impressionable minds at the ages of 12 haven’t had real world experience yet. They haven’t held their first job yet, haven’t seen taxes taken out of their paycheck, or haven’t had career struggles yet.

At the same time, these kids haven't fully tasted the opportunity of America. That’s exactly why they take this theory into schools. Teachers who sometimes think the system is unfair, who mostly think they are underpaid and underappreciated.

Critical Race Theory takes the same premise and fundamentally shifts what America is all about. It takes this American idea, this American ideal of hope, hope that you can be whoever and whatever you want to be, and it turns it into this nightmare where the only way to save the country is to hand over all authority to the state.

But, it was the state that deprived people of freedom. Power used immorally does that. This is why we should be suspicious of Critical Race Theory.

Critical Race Theory aims to turn American into China. Or the old USSR. Where everyone is equal but only equal in misery. There’s no free expression because the state controls speech. And if you don’t align with their thinking, you don’t want to know where you will end up. The state is always a massive power structure, a power structure with this much sway over your life. That is the problem, not the solution. 

When we were in school, we used to advocate for more freedom for everyone. That was the goal. Dr. King marched in the streets for freedom, staged boycotts for it. And the concept stuck. Critical Race Theory isn’t that concept. Instead, Critical Race Theory aims to be the power structure that makes all the rules.

To make matters worse, Critical Race Theory holds 15 years old accountable and makes them feel guilty for things some of their ancestors did. Decisions they had nothing to do with. In fact, none of us alive today had to do with any of those decisions. Living in the past gets you no where. It's about solutions. That solution is always freedom. More of it. Not less.

How bad is this?

In Nevada, Gabrielle Clark and her son, a high school senior at Democracy Preparatory Academy in Las Vegas, have sued the publicly funded charter school for engaging in “coercive ideological indoctrination” that discriminated against the plaintiffs.

The suit claims that the school forced the student to,

“make professions about his racial, sexual, gender, and religious identities in verbal class exercises and in graded and written homework assignments which were subject to the scrutiny, interrogation, and derogatory labeling of students, teachers, and school administrators.”

The suit also alleges that by directing the plaintiff to,

“reveal his identities in a controlled, yet non-private setting, to scrutiny and official labeling, Defendants were and still are coercing him to accept and affirm politicized and discriminatory principles and statements that he cannot in conscience affirm.”

Scary. We're not afraid to talk about race. But, let's do it as adults instead of trying to indoctrinate kids.
