Newt Gingrich: Critical race theory spreading – but parents pushing back and here's how conservatives can help

On the surface, it may seem progressives are winning as CRT infects schools across America, but the fight against this racist indoctrination is really a winning issue for conservatives.

According to CRT, racism is a social construction that pervades every aspect of American life, benefiting all White people (regardless of their socio-economic standing) at the expense of non-White people. Advocates of CRT believe the solution is to undo many of the cornerstones of American society. The theory is a form of cultural Marxism based on race rather than class.

The media portrays CRT as a serious academic field confined to law schools. MSNBC guest host Zerlina Maxwell, for example, said last week that CRT “refers to the study of structural racism and it’s not taught until college or graduate school, law school. It’s a law school class, everybody … So, let’s start by making it completely crystal clear at the top of this interview, that critical race theory is not taught before law school.”

CNN analyst Natasha Alford similarly claimed that “lies about the so-called dangers of critical race theory have spurred legislation against teaching what is normally taught in law schools.”

It’s telling how adamant the left is about CRT only being taught in law school. Evidently, they know how bad it would look for CRT to be taught to younger kids.

Which of course is happening across the county.

In Cupertino, California, an elementary school forced third-graders to deconstruct their racial and sexual identities and rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.” 

In Springfield, Missouri, a middle school forced teachers to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix,” based on the idea that straight, White, English-speaking, Christian males are members of the oppressor class and must atone for their privilege and “covert white supremacy.”

And in Seattle, the school district told White teachers that they are guilty of “spirit murder” against Black children and must “bankrupt [their] privilege in acknowledgment of [their] thieved inheritance.”

Some school boards claim they don’t teach CRT, but an examination of their curricula reveals they’re in fact teaching CRT. Indeed, Highlands High School in Fort Thomas, Kentucky, amended its curriculum in an elective course to teach “social equity,” while the content of what was being taught aligned with the premises and goals of CRT.

Parents don’t want their children learning CRT – and are increasingly willing to say so publicly.
