If you’re even just a little bit like me, you must be looking out at America today and wondering ‘what in the world went wrong’ to transform our once mostly-sane and mostly-free nation into what is has become today, what Susan Duclos recently called the ‘terrifying changes‘ happening to our nation every day with the total banishment of ‘common sense’ from large parts of the country.
Thankfully, we don’t have to look too far at all to find one of the main ‘culprits’ in what is nothing less than the ‘planned takedown of America’ and as we’ll be exploring that within this ANP story, nothing less than a classic Communist ‘divide and conquer’ strategy is now being used against America in what is known as ‘critical race theory’.
With Susan warning within that May 10th story that ‘we must speak out and we must fight back’ or we’re going to completely lose our country, it’s great to see people already doing just that as we hear in the very brief video directly below in which one courageous black mother takes a blowtorch to ‘critical race theory’ in front of the entire school board.
Warning that ‘critical race theory’ is nothing less than Marxism, as we’ll explore in this story, it’s an ideology taken from some of the worst and most sinister totalitarian regimes in history as the NY Post had reported in this May 6th story titled “What Critical Race Theory Is Really All About”.
Critical race theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy. Yet most Americans have never heard of it — and of those who have, many don’t understand it. This must change. We need to know what it is so we can know how to fight it.
To explain critical race theory, it helps to begin with a brief history of Marxism.
Originally, the Marxist left built its political program on the theory of class conflict. Karl Marx believed that the primary characteristic of industrial societies was the imbalance of power between capitalists and workers. The solution to that imbalance, according to Marx, was revolution: The workers would eventually gain consciousness of their plight, seize the means of production, overthrow the capitalist class and usher in a new socialist society.
During the 20th century, a number of regimes underwent Marxist-style revolutions, and each ended in disaster. Socialist governments in the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, Cuba and elsewhere racked up a body count of nearly 100 million people. They are remembered for gulags, show trials, executions and mass starvations. In practice, Marx’s ideas unleashed man’s darkest brutalities.
So before we continue with a lengthy look at how Marxism is tied to ‘critical race theory’, let’s go ahead and take a quick listen to this video posted to the youtube channel of Dinesh D’Souza showing a courageous American who shows us exactly how ‘speaking out‘ and ‘fighting back‘ against CRT is done in 2021, keeping that fighting back ‘legal’ and ‘peaceful’ while we still can.http://www.youtube.com/embed/KcJS2UJVwMc
While this story over at CNN (saved at Archive) gives us a radical leftist view of ‘critical race theory’, reporting that according to one of the scholars behind it, ‘critical race theory recognizes that systemic racism is part of the American life, and challenges the beliefs that allow it to flourish’, as the Heritage Foundation had reported in this March of 2021 story, such theory is shooting for nothing less than turning our current ‘order’ upon its head.
Called ‘Purging whiteness to purge capitalism’ by this May 4th Law & Liberty story, have you ever been called a ‘white supremacist’ for simply supporting President Donald Trump during his term in office or for disliking Joe Biden’s agenda, even if you’re not white? If so, you’re a victim of ‘the new leftist intolerance’ spreading quickly across America. First, from this CNN story giving us a leftist point-of-view.:
“Critical race theory is a practice. It’s an approach to grappling with a history of White supremacy that rejects the belief that what’s in the past is in the past, and that the laws and systems that grow from that past are detached from it,” said Kimberlé Crenshaw, a founding critical race theorist and a law professor at UCLA and Columbia universities.
While the theory was started as a way to examine how laws and systems promote inequality, it has since expanded.
“Critical race theory attends not only to law’s transformative role which is often celebrated, but also to its role in establishing the very rights and privileges that legal reform was set to dismantle,” she told CNN. “Like American history itself, a proper understanding of the ground upon which we stand requires a balanced assessment, not a simplistic commitment to jingoistic accounts of our nation’s past and current dynamics.”
And now, from this story over at the Heritage Foundation we see what CTR really is.:
‘Critical race theory’ suggests that race, gender and other identities are social constructs that support larger systems of oppression. White men—by virtue of their male sex and light skin color—are oppressors twice over, while black women are twice oppressed, and white women are both oppressors of blacks and oppressed by men. Within this system, success is possible, but only if one joins the system that critical race theorists believe oppresses people of color. Thus if an oppressed individual achieves success, he or she becomes an oppressor regardless of their identity.
So in the left’s totally warped philosophy, even if a person has never held any ‘white supremacist’ viewpoints, one must be a ‘white supremacist’ in the eyes of CRT proponents, simply for a person being a white male or a white female or a so-called ‘person of color’ who has succeeded in life.
With such a philosophy falsely immediately labeling the 60% of the US population that IS white as being ‘racist’, as well as the 10’s of millions of non-white people across America who have worked hard and found their niche in life and have become successful at what they do, as ‘oppressors’, no wonder it feels like America has gone mad with lies being taught as ‘truth’ in schools across America, further dumbing down the children who will become a massive voting block in the future.
And with roughly 49% of young Americans already believing socialism/communism is ‘the answer’ to the problems that they face, completely ignoring the fact that such regimes have brought some of the worst genocides via ‘death by government’ to our planet in its history, and now at least 124 retired US Generals and Admirals warning that Joe Biden and Democrats are attempting to dismantle the US Constitution and rush in to America a satanic brand of Marxism/socialism, we shouldn’t be the least bit surprised that Republicans are fighting back against CRT.
(ANP NEEDS YOUR HELP: Donations and ad revenue are all that keep ANP online, so please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this fight for America’s future at this critical time in US history. With ‘slow-Joe’ Biden occupying the White House, and at a time of systematic, ‘big tech’censorship and widespread Democrat corruption, truthful media and alternative views are crucial.)
So while the left insanely screams that so-called ‘white privilege’ and ‘white supremacy’ have long been ruling over America, falsely labeling anybody who supports putting America first in our political and economic policies as ‘white supremacists’, what about the tens of millions of white families and individuals who are fighting to survive, living in poverty and living on the streets?
With racial and sex discrimination now being carried out by the United States government as reported in this Daily Mail story reporting that a lawsuit has been filed against Joe Biden’s administration for prioritizing restaurants and bars owned by women and minorities in its COVID-19 relief package, arguing white men are being ‘pushed to the back of the line’ for aid for their eateries, America is headed towards a time where the theories of CRT are ‘normalized’ as reported inthis December 2020 story at the Heritage Foundation titled “Critical Race Theory, the New Intolerance, and Its Grip on America”.
Critical Race Theory (CRT) makes race the prism through which its proponents analyze all aspects of American life—and do so with a degree of persistence that has helped CRT impact all of American life.
CRT underpins identity politics, an ongoing effort to reimagine the United States as a nation riven by groups, each with specific claims on victimization.
In entertainment, as well as the education and workforce sectors of society, CRT is well-established, driving decision-making according to skin color—not individual value and talent.
As Critical Theory ideas become more familiar to the viewing public in everyday life, CRT’s intolerance becomes “normalized,” along with the idea of systemic racism for Americans, weakening public and private bonds that create trust and allow for civic engagement.
Nothing less than a classic Communist divide and conquer strategy, as the Federalist had reported in this September of 2020 story, we’ve seen these techniques being used before so if Democrats are successful, chaos and the destruction of what most Americans consider ‘normal’ will soon follow as ‘socialism 101’ is unveiled across America. This extended excerpt from this Federalist story.:
Of all the ways identity politics is used as a tool to sow hatred among people where there should be the potential for friendship, “critical race theory” is one of the gravest offenders.
Every person of goodwill should know that judging people based on their physical characteristics is cruel and wrong. This is not the nature of critical race theory, however. Rather, the insidious ideology is being used to promote estrangement rather than friendship, and hostility rather than goodwill. Indeed, the tactics used by proponents of critical race theory share many parallels with old tactics used by the Bolsheviks.
It’s important to remember that because very few of its activists have shown much sincere desire to end racism, critical race theory should not be taken entirely at face value. If a majority of its supporters were sincere, they would be willing to have fruitful discussions in a civil society that supports civil discourse. Rather, critical race theory’s agitators are committed to tearing down civil society on the pretense that it is an incubator for “systemic racism.”
As with all forms of identity politics and intersectionality, critical race theory stokes divisions between people where few or none existed before. It’s all about relational aggression and predatory alienation. Let’s look at a perfect example of this process, a parallel case from Soviet history.
As peasant farmers tended to be overwhelmingly religious, traditional, and family-oriented, the Bolshevik government hated them with a fiery passion. Increasing the acrimony further, the peasants resisted giving up their family-run farms—a roadblock to the Soviet leadership’s desire to exercise complete control over the nation’s food supply.
To collectivize agriculture, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin devised a plan to stir up hostilities among the peasants where resentments had never existed before. As would be the case later with Mao’s Red Guard (and today’s radical statue-toppling, Molotov-cocktail-throwing radicals), the Soviets used mobs of youth to do the dirty work.
The communist youth league, known as the Komsomol, went into villages to propagandize and incite divisions, turning formerly peaceful neighbors against one another. In his book “The Whisperers: Private Life in Stalin’s Russia,” Orlando Figes describes the situation:
The villagers had never heard such propaganda in the past, and many were impressed by the long words used by the leaders of the Komsomol. At these meetings, the villagers were told that they belonged to three mutually hostile classes: the poor peasants, who were the allies of the proletariat, the middle peasants, who were neutral, and the rich or ‘kulak’ peasants, who were its enemies. The names of all the peasants in these different classes were listed on a board outside the village school.
This process is eerily similar to the way critical race theory — and all identity politics — has been applied in America. You can see the same three divisions: victims, oppressors, and those who might save themselves by becoming “allies” of the victims.
Note the reference to the Komsomol using impressive “long words.” Today our miseducated youth are easily impressed by new terms such as “systemic racism,” “intersectionality,” and “white fragility.” Finally, the wokesters identify and condemn those marked as oppressors — doxing and canceling them by name — in a written list of names posted in the village. Today such work is helped along by media and Big Tech.
The whole idea is to sow chaos where there was peace — or, at least progress. It is to disrupt and destroy any sense of community a person may have. Figes continued: “These divisions were entirely generated by the Komsomol. The villagers had no previous conception of themselves in terms of social class. They had always thought of themselves as one ‘peasant family.’”
Also bringing up Saul Alinsky and his ‘Rules for Radicals’ within that story, the connections between Marxism/communism and ‘woke-ness’ run strong in 2021 America, leading to today’s critical race theory agitators actually calling for a form of race consciousness that breeds in themselves the same sort of blind hatred that we’ve witnessed carried out by tyrannical governments against their innocent people for centuries, leading to some of the worst genocides that we’ve seen in all of time.
Each of the videos below take a look at ‘critical race theory’and why Americans need to fully understand what CTR is to understand how to fight back against it at a time when it is being now not-so-stealthily unveiled across America.
