Ted Cruz Pounds Critical Race Theory Into Dust

The man should be president.

One of the great Newtonian Third Law aspects of the Biden administration is that it has revivified Republicans in the attack. And their best rhetorical fighter? Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

The man should be president. No doubt about it. His smarts, courage, and solid conservatism make him a presidential dream walking. But in a time when the bases of both parties want bias confirming mediocrity, can a man with a brain and the guts to use it actually get to the top of the American greasy pole? That remains to be seen.

However, his quest for the Resolute desk has not stopped Cruz from speaking out on the vicious racist travesty that is critical race theory. It is blatant discrimination against anyone who does not meet a PC racial standard. As we’ve pointed out numerous times and as Cruz points out here, those who advocate it are the ideological descendants of the Klan. We’ll throw in Governor Maddox and Bull Connor just for good measure. Racism and discrimination are wrong, no matter who the targets are. A truly level playing field judges merit and nothing more. Democrat racists want to rig the game. Cruz wants to stop them. Bully for him.

FNC: “Senator Ted Cruz on Friday blasted critical race theory as a ‘lie’ and said the school of thought is as racist as ‘the Klansman in white sheets.’ The Texas Republican took the stage at the Faith and Freedom Foundation’s Road to the Majority conference where he took critical race theory head-on, recalling a reporter who he said tried to ‘gotcha’ the senator about “what is critical race theory.’ ”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

“I explained to him and I said, ‘Well, it’s a theory that derives from Marxism. Karl Marx viewed the entire world as a conflict between classes, between the owners of capital and the working men and women, the proletariat,” Cruz said. “A fundamental battle in society…Critical race theory takes that same Marxist concept except it replaces ‘class’ with ‘race,’” he continued. “And it says all of America and all of the world is a battle between the races.”

Cruz correctly said that critical race theory “seeks to turn us against each other” and looks to stoke hatred among people if they have “different-colored skin…And let me tell you right now: critical race theory is bigoted. It is a lie,” the Texas Republican continued. “And it is every bit as racist as the Klansman in white sheets.”

The senator said that, “as a Christian and an American,” he loves his neighbor regardless of the color of their skin, sex, faith, creed or ethnicity, adding that “we are commanded to love…Period. The end,” Cruz said. “And those who would divide us, those who would spread lies. It is evil.”
