Critical Race Theory isn’t new. It has been craftily injected into our societal thought behind closed doors for decades. It has held many labels from “Diversity Training” and “Black Studies,” to “Reconstructing Curriculum,” but the objective has always been the same; and though many people have penned the “curriculum” there is only one author.
Most reasoned people recognize it for what it is.
What we don’t understand is the “why” of it all. Why would someone purposefully try to make freedom bad, truth a lie and the American dream wrong? Why would anyone want to convince people they are either oppressed or an oppressor because of their gender or color?
That’s what a lot of parents are wondering as they show up en masse at school board meetings to protest this pernicious, agenda-driven “curriculum” being thrust on our children.
It is the “why” that led me to a teacher’s training in the winter of 2016 in hopes of finding at least some understanding if not answers.
What I discovered was quite alarming. So, I turned on my phone recorder to capture it all.
You can listen to the audio of the “training” on the Moms for America website.
The program titled “Reconstructing Curriculum,” is a program sponsored by Minnesota Humanities which receives funding from Susie Buffett, Warren Buffett’s daughter. The instructor (who I will call Professor O) was a professor of Black Studies at the University of Nebraska Omaha. His “training” consisted of instructing the room full of teachers how to teach their students to recognize they are either racist or the victims of racism.
Professor O told the teachers that epistemologically the world will always be White privileged because all of our values, morays and culture are based on the moral judgements of White, European, heterosexual, theocratic Christian men. Because of that he said, we will always be a racist, sexist, homophobic culture even though we don’t realize it.
Professor O spoke of the need for free college because White privileged males are the ones that can afford it. He talked about time having no relevance, values being relative and White privilege permeating our culture.
At a teacher’s meeting in Omaha, which I previously wrote about, the instructor—a Black Lives Matter Leader—told teachers “Meritocracy is a myth. The idea that people can ‘pull athemselves up by their bootstraps’ is a lie. It only works for those with privileges.”
A national organization named “Black Lives Matter at School” (BLMS) is infiltrating our children’s schools with a “new uprising for racial justice” which includes teaching globalism, transgender and queer affirming agendas as well as promoting racism and sexism. The program has already been endorsed by the National Education Association, the largest teachers’ union in the United States.
Our schools have become a very dangerous place for our children. It has been reduced to a propaganda breeding ground where our children are taught they are either oppressed or the oppressors. The left says, if you’re Black you’re told you’ll never succeed because White people won’t let you; If you’re a girl you’re told you’ll never succeed because men will always hold you down; If you’re a boy you’re a future rapist and if you’re a White man you’re a racist rapist.
Is it any wonder our kids are depressed and suicide is on the rise—especially among teenage boys? We have stripped our youth of everything that gives them purpose and passion. We have stolen the American Dream from them by telling them it doesn’t exist and denied them the opportunity to succeed by telling them they will always fail no matter how hard they try.
And that is the very reason parents—of all color—are standing up against this nonsense threatening our children. Moms are showing up at school board meetings and are starting Mom’s support groups, holding rallies and launching parent meetings. Moms for America Cottage Meetings are popping up in homes across the country with hundreds of moms joining a virtual Healing of America series online each week. Moms for Liberty has 27 chapters in 17 states with over 200 waiting in cue and Moms like Hannah Petersen are launching Facebook pages that grow to 10,000 members overnight. Moms are rising up to protect their children, inject commonsense and stand against this Marxist takeover.
Moms are realizing this is a war for the hearts and minds of our children but those trying to harm our children underestimated the powerful force of mothers defending their young. Mama Bears have been poked and Marxist Teachers Unions and government overlords have no idea what they’re in for. This is just the beginning.
