And Republicans are guilty of it!
It’s one of the Rules for Radicals: Accuse the other of that which you are guilty.
Syndicated Washington Post hack Dana Milbank learned Saul Alinsky’s lesson well. The headline in the 06-24-21 WI State Journal is a fair summary of Milbank’s hackery: “GOP just proved critical race theory correct.” (Headline differs in the WaPost.)
How did they do so? By blocking Chuck Schumer’s “landmark voting rights bill.” (Dead Giveaway Alert: Use of the adjective “landmark” means the writer supports the bill, which federalizes elections in the 50 states.) Because (of course!), Republicans want to disenfranchise nonwhite voters by requiring a photo I.D.! (More at “Partly constitutional isn’t enough.”)
Calling everyone a racist if they don’t go along with the agenda is a favorite tactic of the Far Left.
The Babylon Bee got it right: “White liberals watch in amazement as black man acquires I.D.”
‘Pick your target, isolate him’
Another Alinsky mandate! Milbank gets off on U.S. Sen Josh Hawley, R-MO, (a convenient target for the senator’s foolish support of the January 6 insurrection) for stating “Critical race theory is, in fact, very real” and that its adherents “pit whiteness and blackness against each other [to] reduce every American, no matter their character or creed, to their racial identity alone.”
That’s as good a definition of CRT as we’ve come across but Milbank wants microfilm and finger prints.
“Hawley offered zero evidence for his claims, beyond Biden reinstating racial sensitivity training and his nomination of an Indian American woman who taught an anti-racism class in which she used an article claiming “Trump’s election was an example of white supremacy.”
Um, that’s a shooting range full of smoking guns right there, isn’t it? Mr. Milbank? Why would America the Beautiful Deplorable require sensitivity training if we were not all Bull Connor with-a-firehose racist? Plus, vote wrong (Trump) and you’re a racist.
Lions and tigers and Fox News, oh my!
Milbank then plays the Fox News card. Critical race theory has been around for decades in academic circles, Milbank continues “without attracting much attention until Fox News took it up last summer.”
Good on Fox News for reporting what the Washington Post, NY Times (progenitor of the 1619 Project), et al would not! If CRT had been confined to the sociology department, no harm no foul. But it has spread — like the Covid virus — through the schools of education to every K-12 district from Bonduel to Beloit, to Tony Evers’ state agencies and county and city government here in Madison WI. Entire classrooms are being guilt-tripped; business, government, and academia are hiring do-nothing diversity officers who subject the population to re-education camps teaching that showing up on time is a racist white construct.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Critical race theory doesn’t really exist but Republicans are guilty of it just the same because they oppose the Democrats’ “voting-rights bill,” as Milbank frames it (Dead Giveaway Alert #2) that assumes black and brown people are too stupid to obtain free photo identification. 80% of Americans approve of voter I.D., including 62% of Democrats (The Monmouth U poll). Are they all racists, Milbank?
Hows the tractor running these days!.
Parents have discovered that CRT is being taught in our government schools and are taking action.
Parents are asking pointed questions about it, so much so, that the CRT proponents are in a defensive crouch. School boards have assumed their default ostrich position and stuck their heads in the sand. They make ridiculous claims about how parents don’t want students to learn about the history of slavery and other such nonsense. You can tell they’re losing because they’re not actually defending it. They’re just attacking anyone who dares criticize it.
CRT will fail in Wisconsin as it is failing all across America. Proud proglobotic proclaim: “CRT is NOT being taught in public schools.” and also, “Getting rid of CRT means that students will not learn about slavery and racism.”
But both things cannot be simultaneously true.
Educrats should get their story straight and stick to it.
CRT is divisive racist opportunism all dressed up as enlightened Woketopia.
Reverse racism dressed up as anti-racism is a big load of CRT. (H/T: Blaska)
If Lefties were really serious about ending the last vestiges of racism, they’d stop teaching indoctrinating our children that all white people are racist.
Easy-peasy, Puddin’ Pie. Mock a Lefty and make him cry.
There’s another solution. If the #HateAmericaFirsters, #AngryBlueFisters and end-stage TDSers continue to teach CRT, recall the school board.
“Even North Korea is not this nutz”… Link after quotes….
“As American educational institutions continue to be called into question, a North Korean defector fears the United States’ future “is as bleak as North Korea” after she attended one of the country’s most prestigious universities.”
Yeonmi Park has experienced plenty of struggle and hardship, but she does not call herself a victim.
“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park said in an interview with Fox News. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”
Those similarities include anti-Western sentiment, collective guilt and suffocating political correctness.
It only got worse from there as Yeonmi realized that every one of her classes at the Ivy League school was infected with what she saw as anti-American propaganda, reminiscent to the sort she had grown up with.
“’American Bastard’ was one word for North Koreans” Park was taught growing up.
“The math problems would say ‘there are four American bastards, you kill two of them, how many American bastards are left to kill?'”
She was also shocked and confused by issues surrounding gender and language, with every class asking students to announce their preferred pronouns.
“English is my third language. I learned it as an adult. I sometimes still say ‘he’ or ‘she’ by mistake and now they are going to ask me to call them ‘they’? How the heck do I incorporate that into my sentences?”
“It was chaos,” said Yeonmi. “It felt like the regression in civilization.”
“Even North Korea is not this nuts,” she admitted. “North Korea was pretty crazy, but not this crazy.”
I think that the real racists here are the ones screaming the loudest about CRT. They are the educrats who love CRT as it gives them status to teach it. It has also enriched a self described marxist, Patrisse Cullors who used to be the head of Black Lives Matter who is a very wealthy property owner who is pushing CRT for the money it has brought for her espousing it.
If only 9-10% of Black students can read, write and do math with proficiency at grade level, despite the enormous amounts of dollars we spend per student, then what chance do they have in a world where you have to be able to read, write and do math with proficiency in order to do any job other than entry level jobs that don’t pay for squat.
Having worked many of those jobs myself, as my own education was not all that great, I can only say that CRT will fail the Black people of this country as it will not prepare them at all for the future.
After working 40+ years with my hands doing hard work in order to make a living, I can only see the end for the young Black people of today will be no different than what I as a white man in his 60’s have experienced.
To all young people, learn to read, write and do math with proficiency to work in a trade that pays a lot of money, or do the same in order to go to college will reward you will with a lot better life than I have.
I can only hope and pray that you do. I would rather see successful young people of all races do well in life than to see them drown in their failure, as they were never taught what it takes to do well.
