Seattle Public Schools employs a full-time critical race theorist.
Seattle Public Schools officially endorses "Critical Race Theory" as part of its Black Studies curriculum and is "working to develop a liberatory curriculum for grades K-5 that embeds Black Studies across all subjects."
The Seattle school board does "racial equity training" that explicitly teaches "critical race theory."
Seattle Public Schools is deploying 31 "racial equity teams" who practice "critical race theory" in K-12 schools, including elementary schools.
Ballard High School even has a course that explicitly teaches critical race theory. They're not even trying to hide it.
I found all of this material in less than 15 minutes through Google searches. The argument that "critical race theory isn't in K-12 schools" is an obvious farce—and, luckily, voters see right through it.

How left-wing postmodernism works: the word "looting" is criticized more than the act of looting itself. Symbolic interpretation is prioritized over physical reality—all in service of elite political ideology. Image
San Francisco 2021: Working-class citizens and shopkeepers get robbed, looted, and beaten in the streets. Elite media engages in elaborate racial accounting and linguistic taboos, all to deny a physical reality that is plain to see.
All summer, we saw videos of mentally ill, drug-addicted black men beating elderly Asian-Americans in the streets; now we see mobs of teenagers looting luxury stores.

The Left retreats to language—"white supremacy," "poverty," "root causes"—rather than confront the problem.

LEAKED: CRT cofounder Kimberlé Crenshaw tells NEA president Becky Pringle that "critical race theory traditionally is a law school class," but is "now the huge container for anti-racist work [and] anti-racist education" in K-12 schools—vindicating my reporting over the past year.
This isn't new for Crenshaw. She said the same thing nearly 20 years ago at a critical race theory conference:…
"Critical race theory" has been a master-signifier for left-wing racialist ideology for the past two decades. Our innovation was to promote the signifier to the public and load it with negative connotations. That's how politics works in a postmodern society. Deal with it.

BREAKING: House Republicans have obtained whistleblower documents showing that the FBI is using its counterterrorism division to investigate and add "threat tags" to parents—contradicting Attorney General Garland's sworn testimony.

Merrick Garland must resign.
This is the smoking gun. Attorney General Garland provided zero evidence that parents are engaging in credible threats or acts of violence. And yet, he mobilized the FBI Counterterrorism Division to use counterterrorism tools for investigating, tracking, and tagging parents.
This man is a menace to truth, justice, and law. He used the FBI to run interference for the teachers unions and to suppress middle-class American families. The parent movement must not stop until he resigns in disgrace.

YIKES: Here's the father of Scottsdale Unified school board president Jann-Michael Greenburg, secretly taking bodycam footage of parents on school property and saying he hired a "private investigator who is writing down all their [license] plates."
According to press reports, school board president Jann-Michael Greenburg, a 27-year-old man with no children, lives with and shares a computer with his father, Mark Greenburg. Parents have accused the father-son duo of harassing them and photographing their children.
In the video, Mark Greenburg admits that he rides around on his motorcycle with a full helmet and visor in order to covertly take pictures of conservative parents and their children, who had organized a protest against mask mandates and critical race theory.

BREAKING: Scottsdale Unified school board president Jann-Michael Greenburg has been caught assembling a dossier with confidential information on parents who oppose critical race theory—including photographs of their children.

He must resign.… ImageImage
I've reviewed the dossier and Greenburg has assembled a disturbing range of information on parents: commercial background checks, criminal records, address histories, divorce records, business filings, personal photographs, and other sensitive data. Abusive.
LMAO: The dossier also includes screenshots and links to a lot of my work, which conservative parents had shared on social media. God bless the Scottsdale moms who poasted my content and exposed their creepy and abusive school board president. ImageImage

Every time the media says "woke" and "critical race theory," they're losing. Let's force them to keep repeating the words, until they're run into the ground.
It's also intellectually honest and coherent: "woke" derives from the theory of critical consciousness; "critical race theory" is the discipline driving much of left-wing policy and pedagogy in the United States. If their brands have become toxic, that's their problem.
Politics requires discipline, patience, and repetition. We've made the connection between signifier ("critical race theory") and signified (left-wing racialist ideologies), and persuaded the general public to accept the relationship as valid. Now we wield it as a weapon.
