The left, like Crooks and Liars, looks at the video below and claims Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin admitted Critical Race Theory (CRT) is not being taught in schools. What he is actually explaining in the clip below is that there is no CRT course but the ideology is being taught.
John Roberts, one of the new Chris Wallace’s for Fox News, grilled him and the Left is twisting what Governor Youngkin said. But any honest person understands what he said and it’s true.
What the Left tries to do is obfuscate by saying there is no CRT course. Of course, there isn’t in elementary school, but the racist tenets are most definitely being taught.
Governor Youngkin said he went after the tenets of CRT in his executive order banning it yesterday.
“Anyone who thinks that the concepts that underpin Critical Race Theory are not in our schools hasn’t been in our schools,” he said.
“The curriculum has moved in a very opaque way that has hidden a lot of this from parents. And so we, in fact, are going to increase transparency so that parents can actually see what’s being taught in schools.”
“We’re not going to teach our children to view everything through a lens of race. Yes, we will teach all history. The good and the bad. Because we can’t know where we’re going unless we know where we have come from.”
“There’s not a course called critical race theory. All the principles of Critical Race Theory, the fundamental building blocks of actually accusing one group of being oppressors and another of being oppressed, of actually burdening children today for the sins of the past, for teaching our children to judge one another based on the color of their skin. Yes, that does exist in Virginia schools today. And that’s why I have signed the executive orders yesterday to make sure that we get it out of our schools.”
“We absolutely have to recognize what the left, liberals do here is try to obfuscate this issue, saying there is not a course of Critical Race Theory.”
“Of course, there are not in elementary school. But in fact, there are absolutely the tenets of CRT present in the schools and what the executive order went at yesterday.”
CRT is Marxist-based and the left-wing media is pushing it, as are the left-wing teacher’s unions. Are they sincerely trying to equalize for sins of the past by teaching hatred of whites today who had nothing to do with it? We can’t say. What we can say is it’s evil.
