Critical race theory, which used to be a fringe idea seems to have taken steroids and grown horns and teeth since Kamala and Biden took over.
This is how the New York Post explains Critical Race Theory (CRT):
CRT is a controversial prescription for addressing racial issues centered around the idea of “white privilege.” It originated in universities and has spread to K-12 schools — both public and private. Its high priest, many parents say, is anti-racist scholar Ibram X. Kendi, author of “How to be an Anti-Racist.”
Though the Trump administration banned the use of federal funds for CRT training sessions for US agency workers, the Biden White House last week proposed using taxpayer money to encourage schools to incorporate it in classrooms.
The Right has been warning about the dangers of this teaching method which will only serve to exacerbate already frayed race relations in this country but their pleas seem to be falling on deaf ears with this administration.

LEO TERRELL: "They are now pushing this critical race theory in the public schools. They are trying to teach our young people to be racists. We will have our future American leaders growing up hating each other. This is the crisis more than anything else." pic.twitter.com/cRl08g9LoJ

Only a Marxist would indoctrinate kids – at a vulnerable age and at the height of their personal insecurities – into hating each other and feeling ashamed of their skin color and heritage.

Sadly, the Biden administration is actively pushing this destructive theory in schools, teaching kids that white students are systemically racist and have an “oppressor mentality”.
According to the New York Post:
Of course, Biden has repeatedly talked up the idea that America is full of “systemic racism,” a foundational tenant of CRT. In his first week in office, he rescinded a Trump-era ban on training that assumes an individual is racist based on race, gender or nationality (i.e., that all white people are oppressors and all people of color are their victims, another core teaching of CRT). His first day, he disavowed the report of the Trump 1776 Commission, which offered a more balanced view of US history in response to the Times’ 1619 propaganda, a project slammed by many of the top academic specialists in US history.
And now his Education Department has begun dangling federal grants to further the same lessons, money that state bureaucrats will surely grab without bothering to let the public know what poison it means pushing.
But parents around the country are finally opening their eyes and pushing back against these dangerous theories.
The New York Post reports:
Podcaster Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of posh Collegiate last November after a letter allegedly circulated accusing white people of “reveling in state-sanctioned depravity” and comparing white children to “killer cops.”
But now, two parents told The Post, Collegiate administrators are listening to families at the school upset with the ideology.
The mother of a Collegiate student said she doesn’t want her name used because she still loves the school and hopes “things can improve from the inside.”
Last month, the school board and teachers of one Virginia county came under scrutiny when it was discovered that some of them were part of a secret Facebook group called “anti-racist parents of Loudoun County,” which targeted and listed families in the school that did not subscribe to CRT.
According to the Washington Times:
A group of teachers and others in Loudoun County, Virginia, compiled a blacklist of parents who they felt disagreed with the school’s teaching of critical race theory (CRT), in an effort to humiliate them online.
The blacklist was in part to “infiltrate,” to use “hackers” to silence parents’ communications and to “expose these people publicly,” the Daily Wire first reported.
Loudoun County has long been at the forefront of woke progressivism. It was the school district which first took aim at Dr. Seuss books for their “strong racial undertones.”

Now Fox News reports that the parents targeted in that secret Facebook group have formed a PAC intent on unseating members of the school board who participated in the vilification of parents:
A political action committee (PAC) launched Tuesday with the intent of unseating multiple school board members in one of Virginia’s most populous counties because of an ongoing feud over critical race theory.
The Loudoun County school board members showed a complete “misunderstanding of their duties and responsibility as elected officials,” reads a press release from Fight for Schools PAC.
It specifically names Beth Barts, Brenda Sheridan, Ian Serotkin, Denise Corbo, Leslee King and Atoosa Reaser. Each were reportedly part of a secret Facebook group where members compiled a list of parents who opposed critical race theory in the school district, according to the Daily Wire.
Slow but sure, parents realize what schools force on kids behind closed doors, and fight back by getting elected leaders involved! Authoritarian Loudoun County, VA won’t admit using CRT even when faced w/ real videos from classes that prove it! VA needs fighters @TheOfficerTatum https://t.co/gYKlUE0F4j

It’s about time parents rise up and take a stand against “woke” teachers and school boards seeking to indoctrinate children in false and hateful teachings.
Such teachings only worsen race relations and increase suspicion and fear between races.
Let’s hope the Virginia PAC is successful in its efforts to unseat the members of the school board who engaged in these vile, underhanded activities on Facebook.
Our children deserve better.
