Jimmy Concepts isn't looking too "conceptual" up against a PhD who knows what Critical Race Theory is & where it came from, plus the topology of the entire surrounding academic field.

He looks like a guy out of his depth, babbling.
Jimmy Concepts was just putting the finishing touches on his patented CRT/cultural Marxism vaporization machine, when his friends Ant Man and Rubber Man came racing in.

"Jimmy, Jimmy," they cried, "there's a strange man here to see you. He's scary. He looks... academic!"

This reminds me of the "who killed Anne Frank" teaching exercise. People are given cards with identities such as "Hitler","Himmler","concentration camp guard" & so on and told to line up in order of culpability, from greatest to least...
2) In one of these exercises, a woman with another identity claimed first place and refused to be dissuaded. The most culpable was *not* Hitler, Himmler, a concentration camp guard, or any of the typical suspects that might quickly come to mind.

The woman persuaded everyone..
3) Who bore the greatest responsibility?

It was a pastor, who in the 1920s and 1930s preached hatred of Jews from the pulpit.

The @nytimes' editorial genius lies in finding op-ed columnists w/an exquisite degree of eloquent befuddlement. Take this 12/2015 Ross Douthat @nytimes op-ed column. By 10/2016, as I noted at the time, the Trump campaign was courting the top strategic ally of the Oath Keepers.
2) Specifically, top Trump Campaign officials and surrogates were flocking to appear on a rather obscure radio show that happened to be hosted by the Vice President of Operations of the renegade anti-federal sheriffs group CSPOA, who immediately before the 1/6 coup attempt was...
3)..in direct communication w/the head & founder of the Oath Keepers, the national anti-government paramilitary group that sent coordinated & well equipped squads into the Capital Building on January 6th 2021 in an apparent attempt to kidnap or kill top Democrats & a least one...

Little known facts - John Lennon was assassinated by a former World Vision worker. Reagan's attempted assassin was the son of a WV vice president.

The usual conspiracy narratives say this is about CIA mind control. The reality is different, but equally disturbing...
2) World Vision gets about 20% of its budget from the US government, mostly in the form of in-kind donations from USAID (surplus food).

World Vision USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. It transfers most of that USAID food aid to World Vision International, which is a church...
3) Furthermore, the 2001 990 tax form of the Fellowship Foundation (the Fellowship run the National Prayer Breakfast) claims World Vision as "sister organization".

Besides humanitarian relief, a core World Vision mission is the (evangelical Christian) indoctrination of youth.

Beneath the surface developed a cultic evangelical conservative doctrine which *celebrated* the willingness to sell out one's family - ostensibly in service to Jesus, who functioned as an empty vessel into which could be poured the required marching orders.
2) And, I do not say this in speculation. Here's the late Doug Coe, longtime head of "The Fellowship" which the National Prayer Breakfast:
3) In that clip, Coe gives several examples - the complete loyalty of Hitler's original band of Nazis, to each other, and also the fanaticism of Mao's young Red Guard who, during the Cultural Revolution, were willing to cut off the heads of their own parents, for the movement.

"The modern evangelical movement has about half-a-million full-time workers, and every year sends out around three million short-term workers; it has over 4,000 subsidiary agencies, an elaborate, highly developed, and tightly-integrated global management structure...
2) "..a close partnership with the West’s most powerful governments, and the backing of the world’s largest corporations; and it has at its disposal at least $400 billion in liquid assets, a fleet of 200 aircraft, and over 300 million computers worldwide...
3) "..with an intelligence system that has data-banked information on every community on earth down to the smallest village."

This is important news. But what media outlets reporting it will invariably miss is that anti-democratic far-right evangelicals have been using coercive methods to spread their ideology in the US military for, quite literally, decades.
Here is Colin Powell's former Chief of Staff Lawrence Wilkerson talking about his decision to joint the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which fights the effort towards an evangelical ideological takeover of the US military:
3) Back in '07, for MRFF, I recorded an active duty B1 bomber pilot talking about his expectation that, one day, he would face a choice between his duty to the chain of command (& his oath) and his fealty to Jesus.
