CRT Is a Racist Republican Lie and Is Not Taught In Schools, Claim Leftist Political Activist and Education Bureaucrats
Oh Hell Yes We Do Teach CRT -- And We Lie to Parents About Teaching It, Says Indiana Teacher and School Administrator

Who ya gonna believe?

First of all, believe me.

Let's start with critical legal theory, which is what critical race theory grew out of.

Critical legal theory is the theory that there are no "innocent" rules in law, no "neutral" laws. All rules, all laws, have winners and losers, and are chosen for cynical reasons.

Rules are chosen to favor one group or another -- and the group which is always favored by the law are the wealthy, the powerful.

Because the law is dressed up as something neutral and objective and just and wise and good, and society propagandizes it as such (for society is controlled by the wealthy and the powerful who selects the laws), the people are blind to the fact that rules and laws are in fact chosen to favor one group over another.

Critical legal theory seeks to make what is invisible -- the cynical nature of imposing laws and rules and protecting power and privilege (we'll come back to that in a minute) for those who already have it -- and provides a "toolbox" of "critical lenses" and deconstructive techniques for doing so.

One idea put forth by the critical theorists is that property is, well, theft, and that the very idea of owing property is a conspiracy of the descendants of robbers who stole the land centuries ago against the descendants of virtuous non-robbers who didn't steal land or had land stolen from them.

All of our assumptions about the legal order must be "challenged."

Sound familiar?

And what is critical race theory? Well critical race theory is the same thing except 1, it hypothesizes that rules and laws are not selected to protect the wealthy and powerful but the white (and, per the intersectional branch of critical theory, the male and straight), and 2, it expands the critique into not just law but all "systems" of society, into everything.

The reason I say this is to point this out: Whenever someone says that you have "privilege," that you should "check your privilege," or that you are "oblivious to your privilege," or that you are "punching down," they are employing the language of critical theory, and using the "toolbox" of critical theory, to deconstruct the oppressive systems of society, and to illuminate the "invisible chains" that oppress the oppressed classes.


Whenever a teacher tells your kid that he is privileged due to his skin color (or sex, or sexual preference, or able-bodiedness) that teacher IS doing Critical Race Theory. He is teaching your child Critical Race Theory. He is indoctrinating your child in Critical Race Theory concepts.

(Note again that Critical Race Theory would, by strict terminology, only apply to race, but the whole "intersectional" strain of critical race theory involves the "complex intersection" of differing but interrelating relationships of privilege and oppression -- straight-gay, white-nonwhite, male-female, cisgender-transgender, able-bodied-disabled, etc.)

It's that simple. The left keeps pretending that Critical Race Theory is only this "high-level academic concept" that only very educated people could possibly fathom.

Bullshit; it's simple-ass pile of stupid nonsense that idiots can master in days, which is why it's so fantastically popular among the stupid and academically ungifted.

The stupid do not go ga-ga for very difficult subjects like high-level math or physics. You do not start a cult for the weak-minded by making would-be cultists write out Honors Calculus proofs.

No, you attract the stupid and smoothbrained with soft, gauzy, easily-concepted bullshit with five or six main rules you can grasp in about an hour and a half, tops. Stuff that makes you feel like you've really learned the shit out of something when in fact you've really done the intellectual equivalent of reading the back of a cereal box.

The Sokal Squared hoax trio had to do some reading in the fields of Critical Grievance Studies to hoax multiple Grievance Journals into running hoax papers, but, get this, they only had to do a couple of weeks' work to become experts in the field capable of producing not only journal-worthy work but award-winning journal-worthy work.

Yeah they're bright people with academic training in other fields but if you can fake up an expert-level mastery of a field in a couple of weeks it's not a rigorous field, is it?

This is not a field with rigorous merit-based barriers to entry. This is a field that is intended to validate the egos of those who feel insecure and left-behind, not to challenge them with difficult subject matter that will only make them feel worse about their limited intellectual capacities.

And furthermore, there is part of a field the academics call praxis, the practice of a theory, the implementation of a theory into action; in stupid critical theory terms, categorizing children into groups according to their "privilege" or "marginalization" is the praxis of critical theory. That is critical theory in action.

Academic papers exploring exciting new frontiers in the expanding horizons of marginalization and "decentering" are the theoretical part of critical race theory, but telling nine year olds that that their race makes them toxic is the praxis.

That's the Applied Critical Race Theory.

So right there, enough of the lies, when teachers tell kids to list the ways in which they are privileged, and which privileges they have because the privileged categories they fall into, that is an exercise in critical race theory deconstruction of power dynamics and illumination of invisible structures of oppression and privilege.

Ever read a Critical Race Theory academic paper? I have. All they are explorations into new ways of claiming this or that yields "privilege" and this or that creates a "marginalized" group.

Anyone who says differently doesn't know what the hell he is talking about or is simply lying, and given that we are talking about the left exclusively making this stupid claim, it may very well be both and almost certainly is.

Now, via let us first take a look at the left lying robotically and remorselessly on this point, telling you to completely ignore what you have witnessed with your own eyes looking over junior's shoulder as his teacher taught him he was a White Oppressor:

Got the lies?

Okay, now let's hear from an expert. A teacher and a school administrator.

Who says Oh yes we definitely do teach critical race theory -- and we're taught to lie to parents about teaching it, too.

On Tucker Carlson last night, his same teacher pointed out that there are two elements of teaching: curricula -- what is taught -- and pedagogy -- how it is taught.

The game teachers are playing is saying "there is no CRT in the curricula," which is true(ish) -- kinda -- but what they're not telling you is that they are explicitly embracing CRT in the pedagogy -- how they teach everything. Critical race theory is the lens through which they teach everything, including math.

Jesse Watters (subbing for Tucker) asked, "Surely not math?"

This teacher said, "Oh yes, definitely math -- 'ethnomathematics,' a mathematics based on a student's individual cultural beliefs and traditions, is all the rage among CRT acolytes."

One important point this guy makes, which I myself should certainly remind myself of: Not all teachers are on the left. Many of them hate this bullshit-- and will even talk to you honestly about what is going on the schools. I suppose some might be reserved because of possible professional consequences, but others might be more willing to let the truth fly.

Below, another teacher says: Do not believe teachers. We are teaching CRT.
