Joe Biden’s racist, Marxist education rule must be killed

The public has two more days to make comments against a proposed rule by the Biden administration that would promote the execrable “critical race theory” in public schools.

The rule is legally suspect and morally monstrous. The mere fact that it was proposed at all is inexcusable.

Critical race theory is a neo-Marxist ideology that espouses overt racism in the name of anti-racism. In effect, it teaches that racial identity is at the center of modern life and that the United States was founded on, and remains a pernicious embodiment of, racism. Its very soul supposedly is imbued with racism.

It teaches that all white people are inherently racist, that blacks cannot be racist because they have no power, and that free market capitalism must be jettisoned because it is a tool of white oppression.

Critical race theory’s trendiest faux-intellectual, Ibram X. Kendi, has written that “in order to truly be antiracist, you also have to truly be anti-capitalist.”

Manifestations of CRT already in left-wing public-school systems are numerous and horrendous. Think tank leader Christopher Rufo has written about some of them. “In Philadelphia,” for example, “an elementary school forced fifth-graders to celebrate ‘Black communism’ and simulate a Black Power rally to free 1960s radical Angela Davis from prison, where she had once been held on charges of murder.”

He also noted that “in Seattle, the school district told white teachers that they are guilty of ‘spirit murder’ against black children and must ‘bankrupt [their] privilege in acknowledgement of [their] thieved inheritance.’”

Those are just two of more than 1,000 examples Rufo has cataloged.
