Most history buffs know that the Chinese Cultural Revolution was a horrific period that resulted in the death of nearly 1.5 million people.
As you may remember, it started with a massive “youth mobilization movement.”
According to History.com: The population was urged to rid itself of the “Four Olds”: Old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas.
Well, this week a Virginia mom of Chinese origin stood up to compare Critical Race Theory to the CCR.
In an eloquent speech, Xi Van Fleet described why these two ideologies were similar.
This is what she said, according to Fox News:
“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet told the Loudoun County School Board members. “You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history.”
She likened CRT, which critics deride as a form of “neo-racism,” to China’s Cultural Revolution, a Mao-led purge that left between 500,000 and 20 million people dead from 1966 to 1976. The estimates vary greatly and many details have been shrouded in secrecy for decades.

Fox News spoke to Ms. Fleet in an interview:
Van Fleet, whose son graduated from Loudoun High School in 2015, shared some of her experience growing up in China’s Sichuan province with Fox News exclusively Wednesday evening.
The Cultural Revolution began when she was 6 years old, she said, and immediately pitted students and teachers and against one another by hanging “Big Posters” in hallways and the cafeteria where students could write criticisms against anyone deemed ideologically impure.
“One of the teachers was considered bourgeoisie because she liked to wear pretty clothes,” Van Fleet said. “So the students attacked her and spit on her. She was covered with spit… and pretty soon it became violence.”
Communist squads would raid homes and destroy any relics of China’s past culture, history, governments or religion, she said.
“Everything that was considered ‘old,’ feudalist, a vase, Buddhas, everything was taken out and smashed,” she said.
If you listen to her, she says Critical Theory similar to CRT was used during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Identity Politics was used. but with the 5 classes. People were divided in one of five red classes and 5 black classes. Very similar and equally destructive.

"This is indeed the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution," she said. "The critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our school."
Reject CRT. https://t.co/dS9xBO57Dt

CRT is disguised as history but is designed to mislead. Parents should be armed with the right information to stop this cultural Marxism from taking hold in their community ⬇️ https://t.co/DDLpC2wTDp

She’s right. So much of the CCR sounds exactly like CRT.
From the indoctrination of young minds to the rejection of everything traditional to the bullying and harassment.
Children are being indoctrinated in hate and parents need to stand up against it.
Unfortunately, except for a few Right-Wing organizations and websites like ours, very few people have the guts to talk about what’s happening for fear of being canceled.
As Ms. Fleet will probably tell you, that’s exactly how it started in China too.
