Critical Race Theory - I had written about the border in my last blog and wanted to discuss critical race theory, particularly as our children are returning to school. We need to know what our children are being taught and as parents be more involved in our children’s education and school curriculum. Before I pivot to critical race theory, a few more thoughts about the border.
There are Democrats and maybe some misguided Republicans that thought anyone would be better than President Trump. Well, we have “anyone”, and it is not better. To say this administration is not performing for the American people is mild, but name calling never works. When you hire an employee, i.e. - elect a President - you have expectations of job performance. We have a President that doesn’t perform. The border crisis which has continued to go unchecked at the southern border is at the highest level since 2000, with high-ranking administration officials privately admitting that the crossings are unsustainable. (This was reported by abcnews.go.com.) It only took this administration 8 months to determine something we all knew in January. The number of drugs and the cartel at the border is creating drug and other criminal problems that push into our country. These illegal elements are going unchecked by this government. As the Criminal District Attorney in Kaufman County, which is hundreds of miles from the Texas border; our county is affected by the flood of fentanyl to our local citizens. Maybe no one cares about drug users getting lethal doses of fentanyl from street drugs, but inlaid counties deal with the cost and strain to our law enforcement and the family members left behind to clean up this President’s mess.
As millions of children begin the return to their classroom around the country; the Democrats are attempting to transform our American culture with fabricated history about our founding date (1619 not 1776) and critical race theory. Frankly, they have used the crisis of COVID-19 to exploit their political agenda. Critical race theory is yet another example. Critical race theory is being disguised as history. It is not. History reports facts. Historically, no one disagrees with immorality of slavery that was foisted on Africans, which started before this country’s founding and lasted until the passage of the 13th amendment in 1865. This economic caste system predominated the southern states in America and was the primary factor that led to the Civil War.
Critical race theory has a good treatment by William Galston (WSJ, 7/20/21). He outlines that critical race theory is a neo-Marxist movement, which rejects equal opportunity, merit and objectivity. I agree with Galston. At its core, this doctrine pits blacks against whites and makes present-day white citizens responsible for any failings of Blacks and for what was done to the families of Blacks many generations ago. This type of application always places Blacks as victims. In this theory - race predominates everything and there is no objectivity for the merits of an individual or their success, which contradicts the American experience and most American’s personal experience. If this was the type of life that was truly America, why do we have an issue at our borders? Why do people of color want to come into this country? Why are their successes among people of color, if your color limits you from success? Finally, this theory is a reworking of the class warfare that is Marxist theory. In this country, pitting us against each other racially is easier than class, but make no mistake - the outcome is the same. To change our Democratic Constitutional Republic to a Socialist Government and to change governance by the people, to governance of the government. Critical race theory needs to be challenged at every turn. This is not about race or being racially sensitive…this is about socialism. The Socialist hope to cower you by calling you a racist. You are not. You are an American.
