Critical of Critical Race Theory by Tom Reynolds
President Trump’s “Executive order on combating race and sex stereotyping”, effectively banned promoting Critical Race Theory within the federal government. His opponents attempt to label President Trump as a racist but it is those who promote Critical Race Theory that are the racists. In his Executive Order, Trump laid out principles that would have been embraced by Martin Luther King Jr. and his civil rights movement. Critical Race Theory directly opposes the racial progress made in the last half century; it divides, rather than unites.
Many people are not familiar with the details of Critical Race Theory, which clearly does not correspond with the spirit or the letter of the Constitution and the civil rights laws; this unconstitutionality allowed President Trump to ban it.
In order to familiarize you with it, so you can better defend the Constitution, the following is a direct quote from the President’s Executive Order, “This ideology (Critical Race Theory) is rooted in the pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country; that some people, simply on account of their race or sex, are oppressors; and that racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans”.
In the executive order, Trump banned teaching the following divisive concepts that are at the heart of Critical Race Theory:
an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously;
an individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex;
an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex;
any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex;
meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic and objectivity were created by a particular race to oppress another race;
an individual’s character traits, values, moral and ethical codes, privileges, status, or beliefs are because of his or her race or sex”;
an individual’s fault, blame, or bias is a result of their race or sex;
members of any race are inherently racist or are inherently inclined to oppress others;
members of a sex are inherently sexist or inclined to oppress others;
and last but not least, the United States is fundamentally racist or sexist;
In direct contradiction to Critical Race Theories, on Monday, in Washington D.C., a black man from Georgia swore in a white woman from Indiana to be one of only nine Supreme Court justices. Take that you race baiters!
Those that want to take away your 2nd Amendment rights will embrace the divisiveness of Critical Race Theory as a way to destroy America. President Trump can attempt to stop this divisive theory within the federal government but the private sector has the freedom, under our Constitution, to continue to divide us. Check out your local schools funded by your taxes or the colleges charging tens of thousands of dollars in tuition, as they are indoctrinating our youth, counter to what Trump is outlawing. Ask candidates for political offices to condemn Critical Race Theory.
On November 3rd, vote against the proponents of Critical Race Theory.
