History repeats and recycles in ways which may not be so obvious. During the soviet era and before, during the time of the Inquisition; millions of people in different parts of the world were detained, arrested, tortured and killed simply for not believing in the systems in power in "the correct way" or daring interpreting them in a way which did not fit the established power's narrative.
Continual indoctrination, propaganda and saturation with the narratives combined with public examples of punitive measures against those who did not comply, succeeded in converting millions of people. Those who did not believe the narrative learned to mime acceptance and keep their views to themselves if they did not want reprisals on their family, friends and themselves.
Every major belief system whether political or religious, uses "education" to inculcate their beliefs in the young and propagate it for generations. Whether that belief system may be considered "righteous" or "beneficial" by those who enforce it-the methods used to ensure it spreads are similar throughout time. Only the vehicles and instruments of dissemination have changed in the last thirty years-the internet, social media, the rise of the "Technological Industrial Complex" (TIC).
An integral element of all these systems to impose their belief systems is shaming and guilt. "Confessional sessions" are part of meetings, classes, events so a collective pressure is built to personally and collectively declare one's crimes and/or sins. Whether these "crimes" are legitimate or fabricated doesn't matter. An outpouring of "guilt" is the agenda. Once one (or a group) concedes they are "guilty" then the social pressure to "reform" or make "reparations" is supposedly justified.
The insidious construction of a "Critical Race Theory" as if it is a novel, legitimate academic recommendation worthy of proclaiming and interweaving in all levels of education (pre-kindergarten through graduate schools) permeating all training be it through the military, government or business programs and via all public media platforms including sports events - is nothing more than recycled political indoctrination used by the Nazis and the Communists since the early 20th century. The repetition of questioning and public shaming of those who do not "believe" are tactics used effectively since the Inquisition from the 1200s-1800s.
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is designed to further divide, create tension, lower expectations, elevate "victimhood" and shift responsibility on the basis on skin color...not actually even race since so many are bi or multi racial in the the 21st century. It defies all science, *(including genetics) or actual historical facts since it "rewrites" both history and science to suit it's postulate. It is not solution oriented in any respect. CRT seeks to perpetuate problems as a rationale for continual funding and "development" toward "anti-racism" and CRT "re-training".
“Anti-racism,” as the diversity hustlers define it, doesn’t teach Americans to judge each other according to the contents of their character. Rather, the ideology stands for precisely the opposite: a rigid and simplistic account of race, in which minorities are permanent victims and whites are forever tainted by racism."
The National Education Association voted to promote critical race theory calling it “reasonable and appropriate.” America's largest teachers union approved implementing the hate-based doctrine in all 50 states and in 14,000 US school districts.
There has already been pushback from parents and teachers. Teachers in public schools and numerous teachers in private schools have gone to the press with their concerns and reasons for resigning. (See a few articles linked below)
The CRT proponents have strategically placed writers in all major media to counter any "dissenters" with articles titled "Why do conservatives fear CRT?" in the New Yorker, or "Why We Need to Teach CRT" in education weekly and "White supremacy in the Military". Their bias is evident.
A few states and local school boards have gone to the courts to ban CRT in schools but this may only address the obvious curriculum materials. Teachers have been forced to undergo the training during their teacher training or compulsory professional development sessions (PD). All subjects and not just the obvious i.e. social studies, have been permeated with this political, social engineering agenda-from math to physical education.
Parents, grandparents, concerned family members and citizens will need to do more than shake their heads to stop this spread. Fortunately, there are a number of media (mostly independent media) which are also coming to the fight. The New York Post is one to take a strong stand. nypost.com/2021/07/04/why-america-needs-to-ban-critical-race-theory-in-schools/
Just as the soviet and fascist systems depended on snitches, the US public education system employs "questionnaires and surveys" to ascertain what category a child or student's family "fits into". The questions are both subtle (especially for children) or forthright in intruding into family life, beliefs, customs and habits.
As a parent, you may not even know these surveys and questions were answered by your child in school. They do not require you to give your permission or review the answers. Regardless, all the answers are coded and compiled into data bases for child/student/family profiles. Did you know this?
It takes courage to stand up and express your opposition to CRT. Some local school boards require you to “sign in and state your issue” before they will allow you to enter a meeting. This is a clumsy way to pre-screen and censor possible dissenting views from the community.
Moreover, the US Attorney General Merrick Garland launched a campaign involving law enforcement agencies including the FBI to “apply” a “threat tag” and “track” any “perceived” threats against school officials.
Investigation by Congress revealed emails, memos and a campaign against parents and community members who question CRT and “health mandates” for their children would be targeted. This came straight from the “White House” through the Attorney General Garland.
Yet, parents have the right to object to anything harmful to their children in any guise be it through education, health and/or security protocols. As the New York Post editorial stated:
“Parents have every right to object to practices they think are bad for their kids. And a White House-led conspiracy to use anti-terror laws to scare them into shutting up is outrageous and un-American.”
After a school board in Round Rock, Texas had their own “law enforcement” arrest and take two parents to jail during a supposedly open meeting, the fathers stated:
“This isn’t just about Dustin and me. It is about everyone. If they can come for us and get away with it, school boards nationwide will be emboldened to come for you.” He is right — and parents must work together to stop it.
Eight states have passed laws curtailing and restricting CRT in all it’s forms. 20 states have similar bills to be voted on in 2022 according to the Brookings Institute. One example of legislation implemented is Idaho. www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/may/06/idaho-critical-race-theory
