VA parent who survived Mao: Scholastic critical race indoctrination 'a replay' of Mao's 'cultural revolution'

本周早些时候, Xi Van Fleet spoke during a school board meeting in Leesburg condemning the school board for the critical race theory curriculum it is imposing on young students.

We are teaching our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history. Growing up in 中国, all of this sounds very familiar. The Communist regime use the same critical theory is to divide people. The only difference is that used class instead of race. This is indeed the American version of the Chinese cultural revolution,” she said at the time.

上 “汉尼提,” Van Fleet expanded on her warning to America as a onetime victim of mandated Maoist indoctrination:

I just want to let the American people know that what is going on in our schools and in our country is really a replay of the cultural revolution in China,” 她说, calling the similaritiesterrifying.

“[Critical race theorists] use the same ideology, the same methodology, even the same vocabulary. The ideology is cultural Marxism.

At school in Maoist China, Van Fleet recalled being divided into groups ofoppressor” 和 “oppressedbased on what social class the student came from.

The same is happening today in schools and other institutions, except it is based on White and non-White races, 她指出.

Chinese dissenters from the Maoist doctrine were labeledcounterrevolutionary”, as dissenters in America are labeled “种族主义者” – a moniker that in both regards islike a hat that fits allthat can ruin one’s life and livelihood.

Van Fleet added that the left’s intent on取消文化” 和 “取消” everything from public statuary to references to uncomfortable historic events, to historic figures they deem flawed is the same thing that Mao sought when he essentially erased thousands of years of Chinese cultural history.

We basically canceled the whole Chinese civilization pre-Communism and we changed our school names, street names, store names, even our personal names,” 她说.

Wokeness – to be specific – we used class wokeness in China,” she also recalled.

Your level of wokeness determines your chance to get a promotion or to get benefits and who decides your level of wokeness? The party leaders,” 她说, implying the same can be said in the United States for people and workers who do not ascribe to their moral superiorsintended ideologies.

Van Fleet added that she knows from experience thatfreedom is fragileand that many other Chinese-Americans also know the struggle and see the parallels between the left’s cultural Marxism and the Maoist revolution of the 1960s.

“[C]ritical race theory is not antiracism. It itself is racist. It is divisive, destructive and it is dangerous.
