Ten Great Big Lies of Critical Race Theory
Critical Race Theory is not a Marxist strategy to promote revolution against America by criticizing all aspects of life as proofs of racism.
Critical Race Theory does not use the charge of racism to condemn and destroy everything good in life so that a mob of the unhappy will form to rise up in revolution and overthrow a free constitutional capitalist America.
The cure for racism is racism. The cure for racism against blacks is racism against whites. The cure for racism is affirmative action. The cure for racism is redistribution of wealth. The cure for racism is reparations. The cure for racism is Marxist revolution securing the power to impose perfect material and status equality.
Financial inequality is not proof of racism. It is racism. Capitalism, because it leads to unequal financial outcomes, is racism. We must end capitalism to end racism. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, which is not the training arm of Critical Race Theory, does not begin the process of dismantling capitalism by awarding jobs and school admissions based upon racial quotas.
A person’s skin color determines if they are a racist. All whites are racists. All blacks are not racists.
Your actions don’t determine if you are good or bad. Your race determines if you are good or bad. Blacks are good. Whites are bad. If you disagree, and if you say only your actions can determine if you are racist, then you suffer from white fragility. You are using defensiveness to maintain white privilege. You are protecting white supremacy. You are protecting the systemic racism of American society.
The commitment to a level playing field and a color-blind society is racist. Martin Luther King was a white supremacist devoted to a colorblind society. A society devoted to a level playing field is the epitome of a racist society.
Blacks cannot lead meaningful lives or control their destiny because systemic white racism ruins their lives. Whites cannot lead ethical meaningful lives because all whites are responsible for all of the sins of history, but especially for systemic racism. Whites can only properly atone by renouncing their white privilege, by condemning the white race, and by joining the Marxist cause.
All of the beautiful things in life must be destroyed. It is not that beautiful things, like God and religious faith; like family; like love between a man and a woman; like parents devoted to protecting their child’s innocence; it is not that all of these things fail to provide meaning. The problem is they provide overwhelming meaning. They are the undeniable meaning of life. They define a good life. So they must be ruined. Spreading misery and unhappiness and confusion far and wide is the order of the day demanded by Critical Race Theory Marxism. Systemic unhappiness must rule a critical mass of the populace so that the mob will band together, rise up, and fight for the revolution.
Critical Race Theory is not Race War Marxism. Critical Race Theory does not encourage tribal hatred among races. The goal of Critical Race Theory is not a classless socialist society. Marxism does not crush individual dreams and aspirations. Marxism does not jail dissenters. Marxism does not bankrupt countries. Marxism is not a criminal enterprise devoted to murder. Marxist’ ends justify any criminal or violent or dishonest means used to win and maintain power and to crush and destroy rivals. Marxism is not suicide by societal destruction. Marxism has never been tried. Marxism will not destroy America. Marxism is not a hate crime.
