A Quick Word on Critical Race Theory Going Forward
One of the problems right-wing movements in America have had in the last few decades is they are extremely susceptible to grifters. They come in, make a little bit of money, get a little bit of fame, pervert the message and drive the entire agenda into a ditch.
The explosion of critical race theory into the public discourse presents a great opportunity because it strikes at the core of something deeply wrong in this country, but to see everyone suddenly weighing in on the matter is very concerning.
Here are some of the biggest names in the Anti-CRT movement guiding American conservatives:
James Lindsay – a liberal
Christopher Rufo – a liberal
While these two have provided novel insights into some of the philosophies behind these movements, they are liberals. To have them leading the conservative movement right now is totally insane.
Other figures emerge in viral videos, like this melanin-enhanced gentleman.
Here we see a long-winded argument against CRT saying that it is “divisive,” he references Martin Luther King Jr.’s call to judge others by the content of their character rather than skin color, and that’s about it. This is wholly insufficient for what we are facing, and I will show you why.
Stacey Abrams wrote an article in 2019 where the realization of critical race theory in politics was on full display.
The article was in response to an essay by some neocon swamp creature who argued the Democratic party should return to traditional Marxism and focus on class warfare, and that identity politics was too divisive. Abrams explains that, yes, it is divisive, but it’s not as divisive as you think once you understand the grand plan. Only then do you see it’s actually unifying. She explains in the final sentence,
By embracing identity and its prickly, uncomfortable contours, Americans will become more likely to grow as one.
You may say, “but how is that supposed to work?”
Abrams spends most of the piece talking about the various conspiracy theories of systemic oppression of victims across the space-time continuum by “dominant groups,” a phrase she used 6 times. Thus, we see her preferred cultural Marxism model coming into focus.
But who are the victims, and who are the dominant groups?
The victims, Abrams explains, are the following,
…women, Native Americans, African Americans, immigrants, and the LGBTQ community…
So I’d ask all the MLK-posting Republican Party officials, who is left? Who is the dominant group that critical race theory’s ideology seeks to mobilize the masses against?
There’s only one group left, and so you better stop with the bullshit and get real about what is happening here.
Promoting 1960’s liberalism will not work in combating what we are facing, and that has been 99% of what I have seen thus far. If you don’t know any other system to promote, then support someone offering a different worldview, because 1960’s liberalism takes us right back to 2021.
We cannot allow this moment of awakening to be pissed away. We cannot allow ourselves to revert to the same failed strategies. We have to level the playing field and let them know that if they really want to continue down this path of bigoted identity politics and scapegoating obviously good people as evil, then we are no longer afraid to utilize this strategy either. They can either drop it, and we can try this experiment called America, or perhaps we can pick up identity politics as well and make their dreams come true.
Take a few minutes to study history and tell me where you think this goes — Institutionalized demonization, dehumanization, legalized discrimination — where do you think this goes, Mr. Republican? Do you really think they’re going to stop their decapitations at our statues?
Be a man and defend yourself, your heritage, and our children’s future, White man.
