Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula. – Christopher Rufo, “Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It”, imprimus.hillsdale.edu

The phrase “Critical Race Theory” appears on the Virginia Department of Education website despite Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s repeated claims the curriculum is not taught in Virginia.
On the Virginia Department of Education website, several examples of the department promoting Critical Race Theory can be found, including a presentation from 2015, when Terry McAullife was governor, that encourages teachers to “embrace Critical Race Theory” in “order to re-engineer attitudes and belief systems.”
Additionally, superintendent memo 050-19 can be found on the site from February 2019 promoting both Critical Race Theory and the idea of “white fragility.”
Also in 2019, under Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, Superintendent of Public Instruction James Lane sent a memo to Virginia public schools endorsing “Foundations of Critical Race Theory in Education,” as an important “tool” that can “further spur developments in education.”
City Journal’s Christopher Rufo detailed the revelations in a Twitter thread Saturday taking issues with McAuliffe’s claims that Critical Race Theory is a “racist dog whistle” that has “never been taught in Virginia.”
Rufo also posted screenshots from the department’s website citing Critical Race Theory in Education” as a “best practice.”
“It’s not taught in Virginia and it’s never been taught in Virginia,” McAuliffe said earlier this month about the controversial curriculum which teaches that the United States is fundamentally racist. “And as I’ve said this a lot, it’s a dog whistle. It’s racial, it’s division and it’s used by Glenn Youngkin and others, it’s the same thing with Trump and the border wall, to divide people. We should not be dividing people in school.”
The McAuliffe campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the presence of Critical Race Theory in Virginia public schools.
Additionally, the Virginia Department of Education did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
This week, the Virginia Department of Education drew criticism for promoting a book telling teachers they “must embrace theories such as critical race theory.”
In June, officials in Loudoun County, Virginia education officials acknowledged that Critical Race Theory influences their work and in July it was revealed that a Virginia school district spent over $30,000 on Critical Race Theory training for administrators.
Education has been a major focal point of the gubernatorial race between McAuliffe and his GOP opponent businessman Glenn Youngkin who has drastically narrowed and even erased McAuliffe’s lead in some polls and a recent Fox News poll shows that a strong majority of parents support Youngkin.
Voters will decide between McAuliffe and Youngkin on Tuesday, November 2.
Christopher Rufo, in the article from which I quoted at the beginning of today’s post, explains that
There are a series of euphemisms deployed by its supporters to describe critical race theory, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion,” and “culturally responsive teaching.” Critical race theorists, masters of language construction, realize that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell. Equity, on the other hand, sounds non-threatening and is easily confused with the American principle of equality. But the distinction is vast and important. Indeed, equality—the principle proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, defended in the Civil War, and codified into law with the 14th and 15th Amendments, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965—is explicitly rejected by critical race theorists. To them, equality represents “mere nondiscrimination” and provides “camouflage” for white supremacy, patriarchy, and oppression.
In contrast to equality, equity as defined and promoted by critical race theorists is little more than reformulated Marxism.
So, Former Virginia Governor and member of the Democrat Elite lies like a rug.
I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.
The Democrats are attempting to create a generation of Marxist-loving, anti-American, Useful Idiot “New Bolsheviks” through the use of Racial Division and Revisionist History.
However, the United States of America remains the country that everyone wants to come to, legally or otherwise.
Because for almost 250 years, this “Shining City Upon a Hill” has had a reputation as a land in which everyone could make their dreams a reality…if they were willing to work to achieve it.
Our economic system of capitalism has been the cause of millions of Americans achieving their dreams and providing for their families.
America is a country chiseled out of the wilderness by rugged individualists who wanted not only the freedom to prosper…but the freedom to worship as they pleased also.
America is a “Sweet Land of Liberty”.
And, Liberty is Freedom with responsibility.
The responsibility to provide for yourself and your family…and to protect our precious liberty if our country goes to war.
Far Left Democrats like McAuliffe could care less about the sacrifices made and the lives lost to secure the Sovereign Nation which is today’s America.
Because they themselves are a bunch of “useful idiots” who want desperately to “share the wealth” and insult patriotism by calling it “nationalism” and “bigoted White Supremacy” in order to “radically change” our proven economic system of capitalism into “Democratic Socialism”, a form of Marxism, a political theory which has never worked in any country in which it has been tried.
For several generations, Democrats have told the impoverished that “Uncle Sugar” will take care of their every need as long as they keep voting them into public office.
However, these same impoverished Americans found out during the Presidency of Donald J. Trump the rewards of a good job and hard work.
Boys and girls, the reason that the Biden Administration, Terry McAuliffe, and the rest of the Far Left Democrats do not want Americans to be proud of America and our actual shared history that it reminds Americans of every good and just quality that this nation was founded upon and which has kept us strong for almost 250 years.
It fills us with pride and gratitude that we live in the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth.
Everything that the Far Left Democrats despise.
The Leader of the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, who brought Marxism to Russia, wrote
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”
However, Lady Margaret Thatcher, a close friend of President Ronald Reagan, laid that falsehood to rest with the following quote…
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
And, you know what?
I would much rather live in “the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” than under a failed political system where you can not even buy a decent roll of toilet paper.
Until He Comes,
