“Ironically, not since the Aryan obsession in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, or South African Apartheid in the second half of the 20th century, has a social movement been so obsessed with race.” This is quote from James Lindsay in the following video that I’m including as a supplement to my last post.
Lindsay’s remarks are with regard to Critical Race Theory (CRT), which has been forced upon us from our government, schools, and in the workplace. As I shared in my post, “Fascism and Communism: two sides of the same coin,” Fascism is defined by the dictionary as follows:
“A governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc.”
And when you have government leaders, educators, and corporations working in tandem to dictate a social ideology, and when you have the government agencies hunting down parents who question their dictatorial demands, you have the very definition of Fascism.
As Lindsay also says about CRT on the video…
“Critical Race Theory is not a continuation of the civil rights movement. It is, in fact, a repudiation of it. To Critical Race theorists, Martin Luther King was both wrong and naive. White Americans can never judge blacks by the content of their character. They can only judge them—always unfavorably, consciously or unconsciously—by the color of their skin.”
As Ashleigh Shackleford emphatically states to all the white people in her seminars…
“”All white people are racist…so even when you’re on your path to trying to figure out how to be a better human being…because I believe white people are born into not being human…that y’all are born into a life to not be human and that’s what y’all are taught to do, to be demons…” (click on picture above to see video clip)
My question is, how is this sentiment any different than what Hitler said about the Jews in Nazi Germany? And, furthermore, Shackleford, like the CRT race grifters, is profiting off of her white audience while demonizing them. Is this insane or what!
This obsession with race, along with their insistence that white people are unredeemable demons, makes CRT and much of the Social Justice movement, more akin to Nazi Fascism than it is to the ideals and liberties that gives these charlatans the right to spew this obnoxious poison and profit from it. Their hypocrisy is galling, to say the least.
So don’t let these CRT grifters gaslight you. Get educated and stand strong and fight against their dangerous racist ideology.
This video is short and informative on this important subject. It starts with a clip where Condoleeza Rice schools “The View” hosts on CRT.
CRT is definitely a concern. Among its faults are the fact that it focuses more on blame than on justice, more on punishing the successful than on helping the needy. It also distracts people from the victory over evil won by Jesus Christ. It worries me that so many people are supporting CRT because of the perception that it aims to teach history and to promote justice, when it is doing neither of those things effectively. J.
Yes, you’re right. What’s funny is that people can leave faith in God, but they still need a “god.” CRT is a religion of sorts in this regard, replacing faith or trust in God with a false justice narrative. It actually works like a religous cult, very manipulative and controlling and its tenets cannot be questioned.
It’s funny that people have moved away from God over the last couple of generations in America but they still need and seek out a higher purpose and meaning for their lives. This is what attracts them to CRT and the SJW movement in the first place. It’s provides a false virtue and sense of righteousness. But what they really need is to receive the grace and love of Jesus Christ. This counterfeit religion of CRT will not end well for them. It’s hyper-judgmental, hypocritical, hateful, divisive, and graceless and it has no redemptive qualities. It’s insidious and evil for these reasons. It doesn’t save anyone, it only destroys people and society in general.
I agree. The people in positions of power who impose this movement on their organizations are inviting their own destruction, but a lot of other trouble and hardship will fall on those who have no connection to the movement. J.
Good post as always MEl. CRT is in such contrast to God and how he created each of us as individuals with unique character traits that have nothing to do with skin color that it’s shocking to not see more Christians, especially church leaders, speak out against it.
I agree, Tricia. We need to stand up to this evil and call it what it is. We are living in times that require good people to stand up and have courage. The neo-Marxist left tries to manipulate us to kowtow to their evil ideology by saying that “silence is violence.” The truth is more akin to what Dietrich Bonhoeffer said: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil…to not act is to act.” And there’s nothing more evil than condemning a race of people for the color of their skin. And it doesn’t matter what the color is, it’s still racism.
Thank God for the parents who are standing up to these race grifters at school board meetings. May we learn from them and be inspired to do our own part to fight against this evil infection.
James made a good point: ““Ironically, not since the Aryan obsession in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, or South African Apartheid in the second half of the 20th century, has a social movement been so obsessed with race.” I watched the clip and neat to see Condelezza Rice speak so eloquently in the beginning of the clip.
Yes, I really like what Condoleeza Rice said on The View. I’ve seen her speaking a lot lately, makes me wonder if she’s thinking of running for office. 🙂
I think she’s way more qualified than Biden 🙂
I agree! She’s brilliant.
I’m also glad The Hoover Institute had her as their president she’s so knowledgeable whenever I see her opening remark before a scholarly lecture from experts
So am I. I hope she becomes more prominent on the political landscape. I think she would be a more unifying voice for our country right now.
I think with her background, character and intellect she can!
Great post as always. You carrectly pointed to the paralles between CRT and fascism.
You didn’t go all the way but I will.
I have written in one of my posts:
“If ONLY Whites are racists and if ALL Whites are racists and if racism is such an evil then what is the logical endpoint if one wants to eliminate racism?
Exactly, it’s the elimination of all Whites.”
Hatred for Jews, justified by religious motives, has existed for millenia.
As horrible as that was, Jews could escape persecution or death by converting to Christianity / Islam.That changed with antisemitism. Once the “Jewish Race” was declared a mortal threat, the destruction of all Jews was the inevitable outcome because you can change your religion or your behaviour but you cannot change your race. That parallel between antsemitism and CRT is very worrysome and troubling.
Very good points. It really is the same hateful and prejudicial spirit that ultimately leads to genocide, if pushed far enough (with the right people in power). This is what makes these fascist ideologies so evil and dangerous.
