Critical Race Theory (CRT): We hear a lot about this today but just what does this entail in our present-day observations? What you are about to read will more than likely make make me labeled as an extreme racist for showing the truth behind the CRT, but I am not afraid to bear this burden to remain free to think what I wish to think and do. If we, from all creeds, ethnicities, and cultures open up our eyes to the facts, we can force the CRT ideology back into the devil’s house where it belongs. We will dive into this ideology, which is, as Christopher F. Rufo Founder and Director, Battlefront states, “Critical Race Theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990’s, built on the intellectual framework of Identity based MARXISM.”
That alone makes a huge statement to see right away that the ideology is based upon and built upon identity-based Marxism. Marxism is one of the unwanted ideologies to be expressed in a free society. A quick definition of Marxism is due to understand why Marxism is not good for a FREE nation.
Definition of Marxism : the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx especially : a theory and practice of socialism (see SOCIALISM SENSE 3) including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, the class struggle, and dictatorship of the proletariat until the establishment of a classless society.
We must understand just what Critical Race Theory really is. The first thing to show is that it is a pure theory based upon a Marxist/Socialist ideology that never ever turns out good for any nation. To understand Marxism/Socialism, all we have to do is to look at some nations who based their society upon those dark ideologies such as China, Soviet Union (Today’s Russia), Cambodia, Cuba and Vietnam, just to mention a few. Taking an excerpt from Christopher F. Rufo, it can be seen what is meant and what has to be understood to put a stop to this very bad ideology that hates white people and will never accept fact which show everyone has an equal opportunity if they work hard, get an education and, most of all, do what they love.
What is real is that everyone of those who developed this Critical Race Theory were, and are, professors that make more than most people who will read this article. Keeping that in mind, we will continue with some very interesting facts dealing with the ideas associated with CRT. Today, we hear one word from Joe Biden that fits the entire CRT into the works of our nation and that word is “EQUITY.” Why is the old “equality” not being used?
It can be stated very clearly that equality is not what CRT wants and to show this, read this piece:
“The Courage of Our Convictions How to fight critical race theory”
Christopher F. Rufo How to Fight Critical Race Theory | City Journal (city-journal.org) April 22, 2021
The Social Order In contrast to equality, equity as defined and promoted by critical race theorists is little more than reformulated Marxism. In the name of equity, UCLA law professor and critical race theorist Cheryl Harris has proposed suspending private property rights, seizing land and wealth, and redistributing them along racial lines. Critical race guru Ibram X. Kendi, who directs the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University, has proposed the creation of a federal Department of Antiracism. This department would be independent of (i.e., unaccountable to) the elected branches of government, and would have the power to nullify, veto, or abolish any law at any level of government and curtail the speech of political leaders and others deemed insufficiently “antiracist.”
One practical result of the creation of such a department would be the overthrow of capitalism, since, according to Kendi, “In order to truly be antiracist, you also have to truly be anti-capitalist.” In other words, identity is the means; Marxism is the end. An equity-based form of government would mean the end not only of private property but also of individual rights, equality under the law, federalism, and freedom of speech. These would be replaced by race-based redistribution of wealth, group-based rights, active discrimination, and omnipotent bureaucratic authority. Historically, the accusation of “anti-Americanism” has been overused. But in this case, it’s not a matter of interpretation: critical race theory prescribes a revolutionary program that would overturn the principles of the Declaration and destroy the remaining structure of the Constitution.”
Given this review of what the CRT people wish to happen, we can clearly see that they want a black supremacist style of government where whites will be driven down and treated no better than slaves unless they agree to what the CRT people want. That is ever the way to be free. however, read what else Mr. Rufo went on to state.
How to Fight Critical Race Theory | City Journal (city-journal.org)
“What does critical race theory look like in practice? Last year, I authored a series of reports focused on critical race theory in the federal government. The FBI was holding workshops on intersectionality theory. The Department of Homeland Security was telling white employees that they were committing “microinequities” and had been “socialized into oppressor roles.” The Treasury Department held a training session telling staff members that “virtually all white people contribute to racism” and that they must convert “everyone in the federal government” to the ideology of “antiracism.” And the Sandia National Laboratories, which designs America’s nuclear arsenal, sent white male executives to a three-day reeducation camp, where they were told that “white male culture” was analogous to the “KKK,” “white supremacists,” and “mass killings.” The executives were then forced to renounce their “white male privilege” and to write letters of apology to fictitious women and people of color. This year, I produced another series of reports focused on critical race theory in education. In Cupertino, California, an elementary school forced first-graders to deconstruct their racial and sexual identities and rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.” In Springfield, Missouri, a middle school forced teachers to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix,” based on the idea that straight, white, English-speaking, Christian males are members of the oppressor class and must atone for their privilege and “covert white supremacy.” In Philadelphia, an elementary school forced fifth-graders to celebrate “Black communism” and simulate a Black Power rally to free 1960s radical Angela Davis from prison, where she had once been held on charges of murder. And in Seattle, the school district told white teachers that they are guilty of “spirit murder” against black children and must “bankrupt [their] privilege in acknowledgement of [their] thieved inheritance.” I’m just one investigative journalist, but I’ve developed a database of more than 1,000 of these stories. When I say that critical race theory is becoming the operating ideology of our public institutions, I am not exaggerating—from the universities to bureaucracies to K-12 school systems, critical race theory has permeated the collective intelligence and decision-making process of American government, with no sign of slowing down.”
Seeing what this already does, it distinctly shows that white people are guilty of racism no matter how far removed they are from anything that resembles racism. Yet, that is the draw of the socialists disguised as Democrats today. They yell without remorse or worry that anything you state against what they want is an act of racism.
We addressed the ideology of “political correctness” in a prior article.
Mr. Rufo brings up some very disturbing items in his article that have to be shown to the world. If “WE THE PEOPLE” sit on our hands and do nothing to stop this Marxist attempt at destroying our society, we all will live in a world where certain groups direct us as to what, when, and where we go, work, and play.
This would never be a free nation again because it will be driven by a radical group pushing their Marxist ideology through their Critical Race Theory upon the white people based solely upon a theory that has failed many times over across the globe.
Our nation, the United States would be reformed with certain anti-freedom, anti-Constitutional people at the controls belittling the white people for acts that at the time were legal.
The entire ideology of CRT is to turn the tables and have the white people treated as the blacks were before they were freed in 1865.
One thing we must remember in all of this is that the entire CRT is used as a sort of reparations for the acts of slavery, which was made legal in 1919 under British Rule and the Northern states refused to allow the blacks to be free in 1776 because the ships from New England were heavily involved in the slave trade. CRT is a way for those who do not wish to live in a free nation to gain control to change the nation into what they want and against the constitutional grounds we stand by today.
Let us show a bit more of what Mr. Rufo is exposing and what “WE THE PEOPLE” have to open up for discussion or forever be held in contempt of our rights!
Never ever be afraid to state what is right. We have to make the statements that these Marxists will use to call us racists, but remember, that in doing so, the very people that say we are racists are the ones acting like what they say we are.
We have to be open and voice our opinion on this subject or we will fail as a nation. To show what I mean, see what is displayed below from Mr. Rufo’s article.
How to Fight Critical Race Theory | City Journal (city-journal.org)
“No longer simply an academic matter, critical race theory has become a tool of political power. To borrow a phrase from the Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci, it is fast achieving cultural hegemony in America’s public institutions.
It is driving the vast machinery of the state and society. If we want to succeed in opposing it, we must address it politically at every level. Critical race theorists must be confronted with and forced to speak to the facts.
Do they support public schools separating first-graders into groups of “oppressors” and “oppressed”?
Do they support mandatory curricula teaching that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism”?
Do they support public schools instructing white parents to become “white traitors” and advocate for “white abolition”?
Do they want those who work in government to be required to undergo this kind of reeducation? How about managers and workers in corporate America?
How about the men and women in our military?
How about every one of us?
There are three parts to a successful strategy to defeat the forces of critical race theory: governmental action, grassroots mobilization, and an appeal to principle.
We already see examples of governmental action. Last year, one of my reports led President Trump to issue an executive order banning critical race theory–based training programs in the federal government.
President Biden rescinded this order on his first day in office, but it provides a model for governors and municipal leaders to follow.
This year, several state legislatures have introduced bills to achieve the same goal: preventing public institutions from conducting programs that stereotype, scapegoat, or demean people on the basis of race. And I have organized a coalition of attorneys to file lawsuits against schools and government agencies that impose critical race theory–based programs on grounds of the First Amendment (which protects citizens from compelled speech), the Fourteenth Amendment (which provides equal protection under the law), and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (which prohibits public institutions from discriminating on the basis of race).
On the grassroots level, a multiracial and bipartisan coalition is emerging to fight critical race theory. Parents are mobilizing against racially divisive curricula in public schools and employees are increasingly speaking out against Orwellian reeducation in the workplace.
When they see what is happening, Americans are naturally outraged that critical race theory promotes three ideas—race essentialism, collective guilt, and neo-segregation—that violate the basic principles of equality and justice.
Anecdotally, many Chinese-Americans have told me that, having survived the Cultural Revolution in their former country, they refuse to let the same thing happen here.
In terms of principles, we need to employ our own moral language rather than allow ourselves to be confined by the categories of critical race theory. For example, we often find ourselves debating “diversity.”
Diversity as most of us understand it is generally good, all things being equal, but it is of secondary value.
We should be talking about and aiming at excellence, a common standard that challenges people of all backgrounds to achieve their potential.
On the scale of desirable ends, excellence beats diversity every time. Similarly, in addition to pointing out the dishonesty of the historical narrative on which critical race theory is predicated, we must promote the true story of America—a story that is honest about injustices in American history, but that places them in the context of our nation’s high ideals and the progress we have made toward realizing them.
Genuine American history is rich with stories of achievements and sacrifices that will move the hearts of Americans, in stark contrast to the grim and pessimistic narrative pressed by critical race theorists.
Above all, we must have courage, the fundamental virtue required in our time: courage to stand and speak the truth, courage to withstand epithets, courage to face the mob, and courage to shrug off the scorn of elites.
When enough of us overcome the fear that currently prevents so many from speaking out, the hold of critical race theory will begin to slip. And courage begets courage. It’s easy to stop a lone dissenter; it’s much harder to stop 10, 20, 100, 1,000, 1 million, or more who stand up together for the principles of America. Truth and justice are on our side. If we can muster the courage, we will win.”

We see here that the very ideology of Critical Race Theory will blame the white man for all the problems of our nation and the only way to resolve that would be to give the blacks a supremacist stand that once obtained, would be no better than living under a solid Marxist dictatorship where one group controls everything and they determine the outcome of everything. That is never the way we live in a free United States. I do hope that this article will show some of what should never be allowed to be taught in any free school in the United States. Critical Race Theory is nothing more than an attempt to make white people the servant of all others.
Our nation was never supposed to be run in that manner. We are a free nation and all people have an equal opportunity to do what they wish, go where they want, and, most of all, achieve what they wish with a little hard work and education. That is not the traits of Marxism. They are the traits of freedom.
