  • The American Medical Association Falls to CRT

    American Thinker ^ | 17 Jan, 2022 | S.R. Piccoli
    “The old world is dying and the new world struggles to be born. Now is the time of monsters.” This well-known quote is a liberal translation of Antonio Gramsci popularized by Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek, which renders “In this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear” as “Now is the time of monsters.” Antonio Gramsci, the Italian Communist leader and theoretician who is considered the forefather of Critical Race Theory, had probably no idea that, a century later, such an accurate insight into his time would prove to be incredibly prophetic of our own here and now. Today the...
  • ‘A Stunningly Corrupt Enterprise’: Jordan Peterson Blasts Academia, Resigns As Tenured Professor At University of Toronto

    Daily Wire ^ | 1-19-22 | Ben Zeisloft
    Canadian psychologist and bestselling author Jordan Peterson announced that he is no longer a tenured professor at the University of Toronto. In an article for The National Post, Peterson — who recently sat down with Daily Wire editor emeritus Ben Shapiro in the inaugural episode of “The Search” — pointed to the school’s obsession with “Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity,” which he abbreviated simply as “DIE.” “I had envisioned teaching and researching at the U of T, full time, until they had to haul my skeleton out of my office. I loved my job. And my students, undergraduates and graduates alike,...
  • Dori: Upcoming book reveals ‘toxic liar’ who headed Seattle Schools’ ethnic studies program

    Ready to hit bookstore shelves in less than two months, “Race to the Bottom: Uncovering the Secret Forces Destroying American Public Education” is a shocking expose that will come as a surprise to many. The author, Luke Rosiak, is an investigative reporter with the Daily Wire and former writer for the Washington Post. I’m hoping to get Rosiak as a guest on The Dori Monson Show closer to the book’s publication – but the advance was so good, I had to talk about it here. In his quest to reveal what is happening in “racial equity” and “ethnic studies” programs...

    America’s colleges and universities are loaded with professors who insist on teaching students various theories that amount to nothing but fringe opinions and who don’t engage intellectually with those who disagree, but merely try to “cancel” them. There are, however, still some professors who won’t play those games. One of them is Erec Smith, who teaches rhetoric at York College of Pennsylvania. He recently wrote an article for Newsweek, “Black People Who Oppose Critical Race Theory Are Being Erased.” In it, he attacks the methods that are used to ignore and silence blacks (and others) who don’t accept the mainstream...

    American Thinker.com ^ | January 18, 2022 | Walter Myers III
    Critical Race Theory (CRT), a relatively young legal theory that has been circulating in legal academic circles since the 1980s, suddenly burst on the scene of public consciousness in the past year. It continues to be a topic of controversy due to its being advocated for inclusion in K-12 instruction. As with other subjects that become political footballs, CRT elicits very strong views -- especially among those with minimal understanding of the theory. Unless a person has taken the time to earnestly read source materials from CRT’s original authors, it is all too easy to fall into one camp or...

    "A friend of mine" (Verified facts)
    I hope Gov Youngkin realizes that the race-based education crisis that permeates Virginia Schools goes so very, very far beyond history classes taught according to Critical Race Theory. Meet Dr. Kendria Boyd. She works in Fairfax County Public Schools as assistant principal who oversees special education. It's difficult to allege she was hired to eliminate white teachers from Edison High School, because attributing motives is always uncertain. But her (publicly available) doctoral thesis from the University of Pittsburgh was a survey of a handful of non-Black teachers which it found, horror of horrors, that they didn't realize that they were...

    Over almost six decades, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech has inspired American students to believe that they will be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Dr. King gave the country hope of a brighter future, but now a much more hopeless vision of America undermines his dream. It pervades American classrooms and tells students that their dreams will be limited by their race. Critical race theory is showing up in schools across America. And when a Virginia middle school began implementing it, courageous parents stood up recently to...

    For decades, Republican Party elected officials have tried to make nice with their Democratic Party colleagues, the liberal media and deep state bureaucrats. Instead of acting like courageous conservative leaders, they ended up delivering policies that were Democrat-lite. This capitulation led to the catastrophe the country is now facing under the Biden administration. President Joe Biden entered office after a disputed election, with no voter mandate, but that did not stop him from launching the most left-wing agenda of any administration in American history. His first year in office has been an utter catastrophe, the worst start of any American...

    This past weekend, I watched a number of documentaries with my children about an America that no longer exists. We watched as people of our complexion were violently denied access to restaurants, hotels, schools and more. My kids witnessed, from an undeniably changed present, a vile history that defies understanding. It was so hard for them to imagine such a world where they could be so easily rejected and reviled simply because of their beautiful color. A hard-fought Dream has become a reality here in America. The codified systemic racism heralded as “heritage” met its demise because good people—both black...

    Liberty Daily ^ | 01/15/2022 | JD Rucker
    Since before the Virginia election, I’ve been skeptical of Republican Glenn Youngkin. I supported him against Democrat Terry McAwful, of course, but I never considered him to be a constitutional conservative which we desperately need in America right now.It’s for this reason that I was skeptical about posting an article regarding his flurry of executive orders after officially taking office today. While the vast majority in conservative media claimed that he had “banned” Critical Race Theory, I wasn’t going to write my own article about it until I read the actual executive orders. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do that...

The orders include:Ending the use of Critical Race Theory in public educationInvestigating “wrongdoing” in Loudon CountyOpening the economy for all businessWithdrawing from previous “green energy” initiatives that have been harmful to Virginia’s economy and bureaucracySlashing “job-killing” regulationsAllowing parents and students to opt out...
  • 1619 Project Author Gets Historical Facts Wrong

    Townhall.com ^ | January 13, 2022 | Jerry Newcombe
    Nikole Hannah-Jones is the New York Times Magazine reporter who wrote the 1619 Project which is being used in many schools across the country. The 1619 Project postulates that America began in 1619, when the first black slaves were brought here---not 1776, when the founders declared independence. Hannah-Jones made an historical faux pas in a tweet the other day, in which she said that the U.S. Civil War began in 1865. She later apologized, claiming that her tweet was just “poorly worded.” She said she knows the conflict that ultimately ended slavery in America began in 1861 and ended in...

    “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” ― Ronald Reagan. Government-controlled education has no intention of giving parents control of their children’s education. School districts have unprecedented funds to teach Critical Race Theory and Social-Emotional Learning. After decades of being told big brother knows best, “big brother” received the ultimate test during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. Most schools were entirely unprepared for virtual learning. Very few studies are available to know how the loss of instructional time has affected students. When schools reopened, they mandated masks and vaccines for...

    Glenn Youngkin recently was elected Virginia's governor partly because he promised to ban teaching of CRT. CRT stands for critical race theory, which argues that every American institution upholds white supremacy. Before Youngkin's surprise victory, the media mocked him for complaining about CRT. NBC's Nicolle Wallace said it isn't even taught in public schools. "That is like us banning the ghosts!" she laughed. She is wrong. In my new video, journalist Asra Nomani reveals some rather creepy CRT lessons that are taught in many schools. Nomani filed Freedom of Information Act requests that forced school districts to reveal how they...

    The first, greatest experiment in human intellectual life was conducted around 500 BC, in ancient Athens, when the cream of a few philosophers for the first time in history, broached the possibility of rising above the common tyranny of empires, for a rational rule of law and government to be conducted on an enlightened basis. Yes, the Athenians excluded the commoners, and their enlightenment reposed on the subjugation of non-Athenian states. So have all other civilizations. Yahweh commanded the same of the Hebrews in Deuteronomy 20:10, that they could offer peace and servitude to remote foreign peoples if they would...

    Fired FBI executive Andrew McCabe says America's conservatives are as bad as Islamic terrorists and the federal government needs vastly increased powers to spy on them. The stunning words from McCabe came during his recent speech at the University of Chicago, and were captured by a report in The Federalist about his comments on conservatives. "I can tell you from my perspective of spending a lot of time focused on the radicalization of international terrorists and Islamic extremist and extremists of all stripes … is that this group shares many of the same characteristics of those groups that we've seen...
