Dan Bongino tackled the rising drawback of indoctrination of kids in American faculties on his newest episode of Fox Nation’s The Dan Bongino Show. Bongino talked to Dr. Carol Swain, who was half of President Trump’s 1776 Commission, about simply how lengthy critical race theory, and critical theory usually, has been coming down the pike.
Swain famous that it has been in the universities since the Nineteen Seventies, starting at the prestigious Harvard University. “It escaped the university campuses,” Swain stated, “and it’s now infecting K-12 education at public and private schools. Christian as well as secular schools, and every sector of our society including the US military.”
“Critical race theory,” Swain stated, “argues that white people are oppressors, that all people with white skin are privileged, they have a property interest in their whiteness, and that racism is permanent.”
“And that minorities, especially blacks, because blacks are being used to advance the agenda, that blacks are victims and they need white people to liberate them by becoming antiracist. But only white people are expected to be antiracist. You never hear that all people should be antiracist,” Swain stated.
“Did you notice that the advocates of critical race theory—which is racist,” he replied, “and I’m sorry, if you support it,” he informed viewers, “you’re a racist too. Suggesting we judge people by their skin color is the essence of racism. But did you notice they live in euphemisms?” He requested Swain.
“And they play these games, these obfuscation games. They can never describe exactly what they’re talking about,” Bongino stated, mentioning Ibram X. Kendi’s definition of racism.
Kendi outlined racism as “a collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.”
Bongino stated that this isn’t remoted to Kendi, and that when he asks for a definition of systemic racism, he finds that almost all of the techniques which can be being mentioned “are in fact run by liberals.”
“The problem is,” Swain replied, “it’s indoctrination that they memorize these concepts and they have no clue what it means.” She stated that is now by kindergarten up by the college stage. “No critical thinking is taking place,” she stated, “and they don’t have to define their terms unless they are asked by a conservative, and none of them can.”
“Critical race theory is racist,” Swain stated, “and I see it as the civil rights issue of our time. I’m proud of President Trump for leading the battle, because he does have a big platform.”
Swain famous the govt order that Trump signed in September 2020, that banned critical race theory in authorities businesses and for corporations that contract with the federal authorities. Biden overturned the order as quickly as he stepped into the Oval Office in January.
“Critical race theory runs contrary to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, our civil rights laws, our constitution’s equal protection clause, and just how we treat other Americans. We don’t shame and bully and intimidate people because of the color of their skin or their nationality or whether they are male or female,” Swain stated.
“Critical theory encourages us to divide and to really hate each other and to fight over things we really should not be fighting over. It dumbs down education and it hurts minorities the most,” she concluded.
“It’s grotesque,” Bongino stated, “I couldn’t agree more.”
