School Boards: "Parents are Domestic Terrorists"

The National School Boards Association (NSBA) has written a letter to President Biden, requesting "federal law enforcement and other assistance" to cope with angry parents concerned about their children wearing masks all day and learning the concepts of Critical Race Theory (CRT).

There's a good reason for parental anger.

Last month the US Conference of Mayors passed Resolution 68 fully supporting the teaching of Critical Race Theory to "all students in public K-12 education."

That's already happening. That's why parents are angry. 

The issue is not really about "race," it's about ideology---an individual worldview.

CRT is Marxist-inspired. Most parents do not want their children abducted by Marxism or public education.

Be informed, not misled.

Take a closer look.

The letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to President Biden begins:

"Dear Mr. President: America's public schools and its education leaders are under immediate threat. The NSAB respectfully asks for federal enforcement and other assistance to deal with the growing numbers of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation. Local school board members want to hear from their communities on important issues and that must be at the forefront of good school board governance and promotion of free speech. However, there must be safeguards in place to protect public schools and dedicated education leaders as they do their jobs."

What is "their job?"

It all depends on whom you ask.

Last month the US Conference of Mayors--- a conference that includes all mayors of cities of 30,000 or more residents--- adopted Resolution 68 in support of Critical Race Theory in all Public K-12 education.

At least the mayors know they are acting against the will of a majority of parents in most school districts, so they are sneaking around the CRT issue while advancing it.

Most mayors tried to mask their support, but several mayors who voted for CRT in all public schools, their names got into social media, including the mayors of Boise, Portland, Louisville, and Chicago. When these names became public, they were immediately taken down from social media. When asked,  a spokesperson for the US Conference of Mayors explained that it is their policy to remove names after resolutions are passed. 

Of course.

More importantly than the mayors in hiding, is the question, "What is the educator's job?"

To educate, of course. Which leads to, "What are you teaching my child?"

That's where we begin to discover the dark cloud of secrecy and deception in our public school complex as it relates to curricula.

This happens to be about teaching children Marxism, but it is the same path used by Planned Parenthood and the LGBTQ activists in the public school classroom.

The NSBA is echoing the narrative of American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten and numerous superintendents of schools throughout the country who have denied CRT is being taught in their school districts, despite partnering with companies that train teachers in the tenets of CRT so that they are equipped to indoctrinate their students.

Weingarten tweeted, "#CriticalRaceTheory is not taught in K-12 schools. The right's culture warriors are labeling any discussion of race, racism, or discrimination as such to try to make it toxic. They're bullying teachers to try to keep them from teaching the truth."

Does anyone other than a flaming far-left radical activist believe that millions of parents across this nation are so racist, they don't want their children to know the truth?

NSBA also asks Biden to issue an executive order that would serve to protect school officials and school board members from parents by reviewing "appropriate enforceable actions against these crimes and acts of violence under the Gun-Free School Zones Act, the Patriot Act in regards to domestic terrorism, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, the Violent Interference with Federally Protected Rights statute, and the Conspiracy Against Rights statute."

A  brief look at Critical Race Theory.

The late Andrew Breitbart explained it in his memoir, "Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save The World.

Critical Race Theory claims that all of our institutions ---our government, our economy, our culture---are based on racial hierarchy, with whites on top and blacks on the bottom. Even things that look race-neutral are, on closer inspection, racist.

CRT is the invention of a group of radical left-wing intellectuals known as the Frankfurt School, who developed it to achieve through cultural change what Marxism could not achieve politically.

Breitbart wrote, 

"It was, quiet literally, a theory of criticizing everyone and everything, everywhere. It was an attempt to tear down the social fabric by using all the social sciences...it was an infinite and unending criticism of the status quo, adolescent rebellion against all established  rules and norms...Critical Race Theory does not create, it only destroys."

Critical Race spawned various offshoots. One of them was Critical Legal Theory, which said that the Constitution, our judicial system, and our laws could never be neutral or objective because they existed to protect those who created them.

A scholar at Harvard  Law School named Derrick Bell applied that reasoning to race, and came up with Critical Race Theory:

  • Critical Race Theory holds that the United States is racist by design because its Constitution and all of its others emerged in an era where slavery was legal. According to the theory, the very institution of private property in the US is corrupt because it was enshrined in a system that saw black people as chattels. 
  • In books like, "Faces at the bottom of the Well," Bell developed his theory further, arguing that continued black suppression remained part of America's cultural identity. He even wrote a science fiction story that later became a short film titled, "The Space Traders," in which America sold black people to aliens.
  • To Bell, the civil rights movement was regrettable, because it, in his thinking, misled black Americans into believing that equality before the law was sufficient. The real problem, in Bell's mind, was that the legal system itself was fundamentally racist.
  • Bell saw only one road to salvation: if the United States amended the Constitution to include socio-economic rights---such as healthcare, housing, education, and the like---it could undo the original sin of slavery by enshrining the redistribution of wealth. Such a constitutional revolution could liberate poor people of every race while also restoring the humanity of black people.

You may recall that Barack Obama often used the phrase, "remake America."

Obama was strongly influenced by Bell, a professor at Harvard, and would later teach Bell's Critical Race Theory to his own students at Harvard.

For the past ten or more years the intellectuals have scoffed at and mocked anyone who raised concern about CRT---saying it's only a theory discussed in upscale classrooms.

That of course, was a lie.

Today it has emerged as a major theme in public education and in racial sensitivity training. People are being indoctrinated every day in Critical Race Theory.

I personally believe that this one single agenda has the potential to bring America down if it isn't properly addressed---which is exactly what it was created to do.

Race is to Critical Race Theory what class is to Marxism.


Now the "Theory" is front and center. Parents are upset, but they're not domestic terrorists. Schools are claiming they 'don't teach it" when they are teaching it. Opportunists are making millions of dollars off the movement. 

Ibram X. Kendi is one of many examples. His writing and public speaking in advocacy of CRT have taken him from having essentially no measurable net worth to an estimated net worth of about $5 million in a year or so. There are many others like him.

The two women who founded Black Lives Matter have admitted publicly they are "trained by Marxists."

These and others are seeking to "remake" America which is essentially the killing of America while making millions off the very principles of liberty and free speech upon which America was founded.

Frederick Douglass, the freed slave who became one of the foremost abolitionists of the 19th century and befriended President Lincoln, once said that July 4 was a mockery to black Americans because the United States had preserved slavery at its founding. And yet in that very same speech, Douglass noted that the "principles of America's founding would prove to be the salvation of the country." 

America is imperfect. But the principles upon which we were founded are unique, Judeo-Christian eternal principles. And it is those principles and the One who gave them, in which we will find our salvation.

Pray for America.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Engaged. Be Prayerful.
