AFT President Randi Weingarten:— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) July 7, 2021
“Critical Race Theory is not taught in elementary schools or middle schools or high schools.”
“Culture warriors” are “bullying teachers and trying to stop us from teaching accurate history.”
Just as an analyst, I must say the war on CRT is good politics for the GOP:
- It taps into White grievance politics which is the animating force of Donald Trump’s base
- It is overwhelmingly unpopular and deeply divisive even in the bluest parts of the country like New York City, Beverly Hills and NOVA
- It activates suburban moms and was a winner in Southlake, TX
- It strongly resonates with Independents
- It forces Democrats to choose between progressive activists or swing voters in the suburbs
- Progressive activists are dragging the NEA and the Democrats into yet another extremely unpopular culture war battle with populists
- It villifies teacher unions which are an old conservative target
Regardless of what you think about the issue, you got to admit it is smart and savvy politics. This will likely help boost Republicans in the suburbs in the 2022 midterms.
“The political left wants critical race theory in every school district in the nation.
The nation’s largest teachers union has approved a plan to promote critical race theory in all 50 states and 14,000 local school districts.
Over the weekend, the National Education Association (NEA) held its annual Representative Assembly, with delegates from across the United States voting on priorities and allocating funding for the upcoming school year, with the ideology of critical race theory — a form of race-based Marxism — taking center stage.
The union, which represents 3 million public school employees, approved funding for three separate items related to this issue: “increasing the implementation” of “critical race theory” in K-12 curricula, promoting critical race theory in local school districts, and attacking opponents of critical race theory, including parent organizations and conservative research centers.
This is a significant reversal. For the past month, liberal pundits and activists have insisted that critical race theory is not taught in K-12 schools. This was always a bad-faith claim — critical race theory has made inroads in public schools for more than a decade — but the NEA’s official endorsement is the final nail in the coffin. …”
Will conservatives actually succeed in banning CRT in public schools?
If they did succeed in this little project, it would chill the spread of anti-white demoralization propaganda. It is more likely though that these state laws will be sued and struck down in federal court and it will result in a legal battle which will drag on for years and ultimately it will wind its ways through the federal court where “conservative” judges (Gorsuch or Roberts?) will ultimately rule in favor of CRT in public schools. Last year, Gorsuch and Roberts ruled that “trans” was covered by the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
They implemented (((Common Core))) anyway. I think this is just an exercise in demoralization but it certainly is agitating the peasants. Agitated peasants are better than passive boomer peasants were.
Agitated peasants may not be better than passive peasants if they are not properly informed. They only become exhausted after being agitated long enough. The so-called left’s CRT drama and the right-wing ANTI- CRT drama are both pure confusion! When confusion reigns nothing good will be accomplished, nothing will really change. The Tucker Carlson show is right-wing agitation and confusion.
Mostly agree but knowing something is wrong is the first step in any awakening. My boomer family is pretending everything is1980’s normal for example. In laws watch Cheers and MASH reruns.
Or the ones going to vacation resorts or cruises. Not a care in the world.
Dear Tucker..the Tuckmiester
I saw your show last night..a few comments…
1)stop quoting Martin Luther King…MLK were he alive today would fanatically be supporting BLM..
2)It is precisely because America has become multiracial….1965 nonwhite LEGAL Immigrant Increase Act…..that CRT is being imposed on Native Born White American School Children….for post-1965 Nonwhite LEGAL Immigrants and their nonwhite US Born Children are the Democratic Party Voting Bloc and this massive nonwhite Democratic Party Voting Bloc will always be about race…enough with the MLK Fairy Tales..
Dear Patrick… As always, you have hit the target in the center of the bulls-eye!!
Agree. When whites try to act all normie and quote MLK, Mandela, blah blah…it’s sickening.
Still waiting for the MLK files to be released. Has it been 75 years? And why was his wife allowed to make that happen?
I’m not sure federal courts can force this. From what I understand, education programs are set by states and local school systems. Like voting we are fortunate that it’s mainly local. This is so devisive that even progressive parents hate this. I live in the Ozarks. No school system here is going to be willing to endure the public explosion this would cause. The problem is keeping this from being introduced in small dribs and drabs under the radar. I will suprised if this is more than a few years fad that goes away eventually quietly when it’s seen it doesn’t help black kids, and drives away school supporting white parents. I’m old enough to have seen one fad after another, whole language rather than phonics that for teaching reading for instance. Just get ready for a while, while a whole new mob of grifters get rich from it, kids suffer, and another stupid left ideology leaves a failure. Get ready for another boost for religious and private schooling.
Suddenly the 1st Amendment regarding teachers “right to teach” will become really important. I really don’t care anymore. It really isn’t much different than the (((Howard Zinn))) garbage they have already been teaching for 40 years.
Yeah, the NEA is really pushing the communist-socialist propaganda.
Exactly. I see nothing new.
This is why Germany chased a certain group out of teaching.
All the more reason to embrace e-learning, web and computer biased education.
Our WHITE kids need to be proficient in solid facts, history , STEM and industrial crafts, not politically speculative utopian theories (which always end in a hell on earth).
We should refrain from attacking people like Rufo who are genuinely exposing and attacking CRT, but be ready to draw the disaffected and redpilled to our cause.
Ruffo is a tool. He made it known he wanted nothing to do with “whiteness” and has only come out against CRT because “it is racist against all races”. Like Tucker he does more harm than good. He is another gate keeper. When asked about what he liked about being white he said “it is a social construct”. He offers us nothing
The jews are teaching White children to hate themselves.
And they’ve been teaching Christians the same, for 15 centuries.
@ trying to indoctrinate white kids!?, They are indoctrinated, already!
Yep, but they want more.
They want to completely breed out WHITENESS.
I think it will actually be worse because conservatives decided to grift off the issue. We will see hardcore race propaganda in K-12 everywhere because conservatives brought it up without any intention of pushing through to the end or any plan for winning.
Conservatives are like the WWE to the left’s UFC. There’s this pattern where conservatives declare a fake professional wrestling fight for the purpose of bringing in donations, but the left ends up thinking the fight is real and pummels them to death.
It is ironic that Dart hit the bullseye. This is a republican grift and they have all denounced anyone who says that CRT is anti white. “No it isnt. Race is a social construct but CRT really punishes asians”. He is saying whiteness is a social construct but Asians arent? Ruffo offers us nothing
Whites alone are the targets of this CRT jewshit. Anyone who denies it, like race-mixer Rufo, is a lying turd trying to lead righteously angry White normies into yet another cul-de-sac.
The real goal of CRT is to demoralize and limit Whites from succeeding and having an economic advantage. Low IQ nonwhites will be put in STEM jobs and there will be a few whites along to do the real work.
Just like when you used to go to Chipotle, and they’d have all Mexicans dishing up your food, but at the end, there was always a white cashier handling the money.
Over the past 60 years, schools have been insidiously converted from education to indoctrination factories.
Once heard a teacher say that elementary school is NOT about academics, it’s about SOCIALIZATION. Imagine that.
