Critical Race Theory Is Tearing Down American Institutions

Can it be stopped?

Critical Race Theory is all the rage when it comes to Republican and conservative indignation. Usually, when something has this wide of a consensus, I’m suspicious of it. Tyranny of the majority and all that. But this time the teeming unwashed have got it right. Critical race theory is a direct threat to the republic. It must be stopped. But can it be thwarted? Mark Brnovich, Attorney General of Arizona, shows us the threat. It’s up to us to combat it.

Brnovich: “United States of America is the land of opportunity, committed to the rule of law, dedicated to the proposition that all of us are created equal with certain unalienable rights. Millions have fled to the beacon of hope on our shores over the past two centuries.

Yet there are those who have made it their mission to tear down every institution and principle that has made the United States so unique in world history. These movements have always existed but appear to be more pronounced today with the promotion of critical race theory.

Critical race theory is nothing more than the neo-Marxist idea of how race has influenced the inception and history of our nation, building upon a Marxist utopia of destroying and creating a new society based on class. The radical concept, using race in place of class to achieve the long-term Marxist goal, is already threatening to consume many of our institutions – from the U.S. military, to our churches and our professional sports leagues, and even our legislatures.

A new report from the National Archives singles out the National Archives Rotunda as a prime example of structural racism because it “lauds wealthy White men in the nation’s founding while marginalizing [Black Indigenous People of Color] BIPOC, women, and other communities.” The authors of the report suggest that the federal government “reimagine the Rotunda” to “create a more inclusive tribute to the nation’s founding.”

Perhaps most disturbing, critical race theory is now corrupting our most vulnerable and cherished by undermining the education of our youth. The good news is that thousands of parents, including many in Arizona, have awakened to this attempted infestation of the minds of our children and are standing up to school boards and university systems to stop this curriculum before it takes permanent hold of our society.

The proponents of critical race theory seek to demonize and undermine Americans’ confidence in our system by arguing that the American Revolution and our founding were created to further and protect slavery, and therefore the entire American experiment is inherently flawed. This is fundamentally false and should be rejected by every American who knows their history books.

Slavery is a flawed chapter of American – and world – history, but it is one chapter. It is not the foundation or the core of who we are. Why do proponents of critical race theory do this? The strategy comes from a classic revolutionary playbook that says if you want radical change in a country, you must first convince people that their current institutions are so systematically flawed and not worth saving, and that people who support them should be ashamed of themselves. That opens the door for some new vision of change – one that is more concerned with the centralization of power than being grounded in facts.”
