Ted Cruz hammers CRT racism
Naturally, that upset people in the mainstream media because they resent anyone who would dare call them out for their hypocrisy and double standards. You can’t position yourself as a champion against racism and then push CRT, which at its very core is racist. You only have to look at Ibram X. Kendi, the current figurehead pushing CRT, and his “anti-racist” movement understand that.
Kendi proposes that racism isn’t actually racism if it’s creating “equity” in the system. Note the distinct language shift from the prior term of “equality.” In other words, the proposition is that racial discrimination is actually good if it somehow elevates those viewed as “oppressed” by current systems. Of course, how the current systems cause oppression is a question always left unanswered. Are there specific laws that need to be changed? Which ones, exactly?
Further, to push the perverted idea that it is moral and necessary to be racist in the pursuit of equity, CRT proclaims that white people hold implicit, inbred racial views and benefit from “privilege” that justifies discrimination against them to balance outcomes. Obviously, things get even more convoluted and complicated from there, but the nuts and bolts of what the modern left call critical race theory is simply racism by another name.
In other words, Cruz is correct. Those pushing insanely racist ideas about white people are no better than the white supremacist donning a white hood. Racism is racism, and there is no justification for it. At the end of the day, it is the government’s job to provide equality, not equity. Equity of outcome is an impossible goal that takes agency away from individuals, supposing that all hard work leading to success is somehow tainted.
The racism of CRT has previously gotten a free ride in academia where the administrators support this kind of racism and may even believe the crap being pushed by its supporters. It has also been accepted by management in some companies and by some commanders in the military. That being said it is still patently racist in concept and tone. It is shameful that so many have been conned by this total BS.
It is interesting to see how ill-equipped the leftists are to deal with conservative arguments and those of parents when confronted about this racist program. The Admira being questioned by a Congressman about it seemed flustered by the specific questions. School boards targetted by parents seem equally flustered.
