It always ends in mass destruction.

Nazi's put themselves above Jews.

English above Indians, Asians, Africans.

In 1957, #ReinholdNiebhur predicted why #evangelicals are paralyzed by #CRT & #systemicracism discussions, and so on, today. It all started from tragic flaws in the theology and preaching of Billy Graham.
Billy Graham and the evangelical “form of the Christian faith,” writes Niebuhr, “relies on an oversimplification of the is­sues in order to create the ‘crisis’ that prompts conversion and the acceptance of the Christian faith.
The best way of inducing this crisis is to call attention to some moral dereliction of the person, in which some accepted moral norm has been transgressed and the conscience is consequently uneasy.

@aravosis I think it was that recent poll that showed over 80% of Democrats are vaccinated and around 50% of Republicans are and of the unvaccinated Republicans about 25% said they won't get vaccinated. #DeltaVariant is killing white people now. When they thought it was just POC they 1)
@aravosis Didn't care. Republicans know that by 2040 white people will be a minority in America & #COVID19 is hastening things along. I saw today that the life expectancy went down due to #COVID19. It's all about white people. They are fearful of being the minority.
@aravosis Why do you think they're so concerned about #CRT? If we teach children our real history they're worried that when they're the minority they'll be treated badly. Stopping abortion is all about bringing up white birth rates. Most abortions are performed on white women. 3)

"...I know that here in RI we do not have a CRT policy, that's not what is being taught in the schools...."…
3/EXCEPT: We DO have a CRT policy here in RI, and not only that, it's being supported by @GovDanMcKee, by RIDE, and also by @SANDRISCANO (Chair - Senate Education Committee) and Joseph McNamara @RIDemChair - (Chair -- House of Rep Education Committee.) SITTING LEGISLATORS.

@BBCWorld I know Steve Wolf but he is wrong. Race is NOT a social construct as #CRT claimed. Health disparities are largely genetic. No single gene for race but African Americans have different gene network for hormone D that regulates immune system. #COVIDdeaths tracked D
Access to insurance & health care are factors & exposure risk, but sets of genes differ in different races. Sanofi Dengue fever vaccine worked well in Mex, Latin American. But in SE Asia it failed. Cause found to be genetic differences. It’s nonsense to claim race isn’t genetic.
I organized a conference on gene networks& disease in 2010. The Human Genome sequenced genes. The research on gene networks has developed over the last 20+ years. The peer reviewed literature in PubMed has hundreds of research papers on the genetic factors in health disparities.

Critical Race Theory #CRT lesson one:

Your grandparents identify with one of these two groups, and have handed down their values.

Take all the time you need with this. - JJ Westgate #ncpol
Critical Race Theory Lesson #2:

These folks birthed the idea of charter schools. - JJ Westgate #ncpol
Critical Race Theory Lesson #3:

These are the grandparents of the seditionists who stormed the capitol on January 6th. - JJ Westgate #ncpol

Let’s be clear about something, because the gaslighting on this is totally out of control. 1/15 🧵#ncpol #CRT
Reasonable minds who stand in opposition to neoracism, or Critical Race Theory (CRT), are not suggesting we not teach history, even the difficult history of the American past, or not talk/debate about present day difficulties 2/15
People are saying students should not be forced to adopt present day discrimination or be forced to accept a politically driven ideology about the United States. 3/15

Many folks are claiming TX Republicans are "removing" teaching requirements about the civil rights movement & its leaders from TX curriculum standards w/ #SB3.
This is not true. But it contains just enough truth to make for powerful political fodder.🧵/1…
True: the version of the #SB3 bill that the TX Senate just passed (w/o Democrat support) did in fact remove a *bunch* of specific people & events from the bill, including stuff on civil rights, women's suffrage, slavery, labor, & more.… /2
Also true: the current version of the bill also removed mentions of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abigail Adams, the American GI Forum, the 19th Amendment, and *much more.* Why remove all of this? /3

Here’s the moral of the #CRT story (again): CRT only gained prominence because it emerged in a vacuum. Had conservatives actively explored how race affects American life since 1965, & provided a better constructive account for actual racism, there be no “banning” of CRT today.
William F. Buckley, whom I admire, took the wrong approach with James Baldwin. It set a terrible precedent. The ensuing “debates” should have been about *how* racism affects Americans# life, not *if* America is a “racist nation” or not.
The focus should not have been solely on rejecting/refuting liberal & progressive arguments but providing a better account of how human moral flaws operate regarding race after the Civil-Rights Act of 1965. Today, throwing Thomas Sowell data at progressives will always fail.

The TX special session is literally a smorgasbord of hate: everything from voter suppression, #CRT and anti-immigration to transphobia and anti-abortion. They even seem to be privatizing foster-care 😳! We may need to call this the #GOPHatesEverybody special session. What say U?

@camanpour Jones was wrong in her premise for #CriticalRaceTheory which is based on Marxist theory, & her own misunderstanding of genomics. #CRT is antithetical to Dr MLK's dream of NOT being judged by skin color. It asserts that "whiteness is the source of all racial injustice"
2 The police are NOT the source of the violence against black people, although the media definitely conveys that impression. #FactsMatter. Below are facts about the sources of violence against black people, from peer reviewed sources and the original databases quoted in them.
3 #FactsMatter Criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson Crime data sources from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports & CDC, found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012. THESE #BlackLivesMatter too!

@LouiseMensch @911CORLEBRA777 @DeptofDefense @USPacificFleet @20committee @GCHQ @ASDGovAu @JoeBiden I've noticed another disturbing trend in academia &the arts, re-writing history to a warped anti-American, anti whatever they want to attack, self flagellating attacks on America, trashing anything successful/excellent, a recurrence of 60s,70s academic/pseudo intellectual hate.
@LouiseMensch @911CORLEBRA777 @DeptofDefense @USPacificFleet @20committee @GCHQ @ASDGovAu @JoeBiden Example #BUNK History has many antiestablishment tropes such as condemnation of any country's long term occupation of a country (eg Afghanistan). While @JoeBiden wouldn't buy it, his far left loonies would. These tropes are similar to #CriticalRaceTheory in their destructiveness
@LouiseMensch @911CORLEBRA777 @DeptofDefense @USPacificFleet @20committee @GCHQ @ASDGovAu @JoeBiden Just as there is #CRT thrust to teach children they are white oppressors responsible for the lack of progress of black people, there is a concurrent "reimagining" History AND a plan to put this reimagined history in childrens' classrooms teaching them this radical agenda. #RVA

If you're college professor teaching #criticalracetheory, you owe it your students to have the read black alternative views like Thomas Sowell as way to help students see that #CRT has flaws & is merely a theory. @jasonriley & I explain why. via @YouTube

Dear Fellow White People,

I am a gay woman of Jewish ethnicity living in #Texas and have faced discrimination in my life. However, my experiences are through the lens of a white woman, someone who doesn’t face the daily #SystemicRacism embedded in our society and institutions.
Let’s be clear. The USA was built on the backs of slaves, human beings who were considered property for no other reason than the color of their skin, and the institutions within this country were both developed and implemented by, and for, white people.
By virtue of this fact, white people have the inherent privilege of living in a world that was created for their benefit.

I've been hearing about CRT a lot and I figure it's finally time to get down to business and figure out what exactly it is.

I wish a had a bigger screen to read about it on, though.
it's a little better readable if you adjust the levels in the camera but sadly I can't do that with my eyes
microsoft the windows 10 interface is really not optimized for a 5" NTSC screen
please make sure you remember to fix this in windows 11

🚨 What “Critical Race Theory” Critics Are Actually Criticizing⁉️

From your television set to the local school board meeting, the fight over #CriticalRaceTheory or #CRT is everywhere!

🧵 Unroll this thread: ⤵️
The “CRT” term has crossed over from the academy to serve as a label used by critics to describe a host of shocking and disturbing practices sprouting up in, among other places, America's classrooms.

The phrase has elicited, unfortunately, a terminological debate… ⤵️
…over what #CRT means, rather than the phenomenon it identifies.

That is at best a distraction, and at worst a diversion: By fighting about what “Critical Race Theory” means, we're avoiding a conversation about what has afflicted our schools over the course of the past year. ⤵️

You have to understand the British elite's war on left ideologies as reactions, not action: BLM triggers the "war on woke"; the huge Gaza/Al-Aqsa demos trigger this new attack on the concept of #WhitePrivilege ... soon there'll be a full-blown attempt to ban #CRT ... 1/...
2/ ... but the action/reaction cycle is international, with the Murdoch empire as the vector. If Fox is banging on about #CRT thousands of times a month, but the UK Times and Sky are not, things feel out of joint...
3/ So the whole Anglosphere, from Sydney to Belfast, has to jump to the rhythm of the GOP right, which in turn is the willing host of fascist groups and ideologies...

Let’s talk about #criticalracetheory . It was started by Black and Latinx law professors as a way to reorient our understanding of the centrality of race and racism to American society. It was particularly concerned with the role of the law in creating and protecting racism. #crt
#CriticalRaceTheory asks us to think critically about the role of race and racial ideology in the construction of our social and political institutions and their organizational culture. #CRT
In its simplest form, #CriticalRaceTheory has 4 main pts:

1) Race is a social construct.

2) Racism is not a departure from the norm, it is the norm.

3) Racism exists outside of individual animus.

4) The stories of racial minorities are essential to understanding racism.

⚠️ Woke: Critical Race Theory

🚨 What's it all about⁉️

Is it real? How bad is it?

🧵 Unroll the thread: ⤵️
The “Critical Race Theory” is in fact hateful *RACISM* only this time towards the white people.

#CRT is an offshoot of Marxism, is globalist in scope, profoundly anti-Christian, and fundamentally anti-American.

⚠️ It's what Democrats have now embraced! 🤦

It's going on in UK too: Hats off to @KemiBadenoch for eloquently making the case against #CriticalRaceTheory!

Most ppl think #CRT originated in the Frankfurt School. Not so. It was Antonio Gramsci. There's really no difference between the "Neo-Communist" School and "Gramscian Marxism"
European Antifascim grew strong in Germany alongside the Frankfurt School, but was suppressed by the Nazis.

A prominent leader was Max Horkheimer (left of handshake).…
Horkheimer et al fled Germany, and eventually came to the United States, to Columbia University.

He eventually returned to (West) Germany, but an associate, Herbert Marcruse stayed behind.…

So … @PringleforAL01 is NOT in a class by himself. These GOP “leaders” have no idea what critical race theory (#CRT) might be, also.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) told the Daily Dot that Critical Race Theory is “different things to different people but the bottom line is that it is a distorted view of racism…. [one that is] trying to turn it into a positive…”
Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL):
“there’s a lot of people that have a lot of different definitions.”
