Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It

The Courage of Our Convictions: How to Fight Critical Race Theory

In this article by Christopher Rufo, he outlines the Marxist basis of critical race theory, how it has infiltrated every part of society, and how to fight back.

Key quotes:

“Its supporters deploy a series of euphemisms to describe critical race theory, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion,” and “culturally responsive teaching.” Critical race theorists, masters of language construction, realize that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell. Equity, on the other hand, sounds non-threatening and is easily confused with the American principle of equality. But the distinction is vast and important. Indeed, critical race theorists explicitly reject equality—the principle proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, defended in the Civil War, and codified into law with the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. To them, equality represents “mere nondiscrimination” and provides “camouflage” for white supremacy, patriarchy, and oppression.”

“I’m just one investigative journalist, but I’ve developed a database of more than 1,000 of these stories. When I say that critical race theory is becoming the operating ideology of our public institutions, I am not exaggerating—from the universities to bureaucracies to K-12 school systems, critical race theory has permeated the collective intelligence and decision-making process of American government, with no sign of slowing down.”

“There are three parts to a successful strategy to defeat the forces of critical race theory: governmental action, grassroots mobilization, and an appeal to principle.”

A Teacher Speaks Out: Paul Rossi on Critical Race Theory and Anti-Racist Teachings “Demonizing” Kids at his School

In this podcast, Megyn Kelly conducts an in-depth interview with a New York City math teacher who was fired from teaching after speaking out against Critical Race Theory.

Rossi observes, “Community stability is the highest truth. When you’re focused on the community or you have a group mindset, then anything that disrupts the stability of the group is dangerous. This is a totalitarian mindset. Let’s not mince words. This is what happens when you prioritize groups over individuals. It leads inexorably to this mindset and my Head was reflecting that mindset I think. Individualism is dangerous that mindset.”
