Expect the woke left to try to smear you as a “fascist” if you object to children being taught to hate themselves or others because of their race. A recent op-ed in The Guardian has warned us. It headlines the word “fascism” to describe Florida’s 2022 legislation that puts the brakes on some of the most divisive and abusive ideologies being forced into American schools and boardrooms.
One of those curricula is Critical Race Theory, a particularly destructive product of identity politics. It aims to instill resentment and guilt in Americans by relentlessly preaching that America, and specifically “white” Americans, are irredeemably racist. It’s akin to coercive thought reform. But those who speak out against such psychologically manipulative programs seem to have emboldened many more Americans to openly support legislation like Florida’s.
However, as the Guardian op-ed illustrates, proponents of agendas like CRT are reacting to this refreshing outspokenness with ever more demonization. Their smear tactics vilify those who don’t support such lesson plans for impressionable children or training for new employees. “Fascist” is just one of countless smear words that circulate in Big Media to cut off conversation. Others include “bigot,” “hater,” “white supremacist,” “domestic terrorist,” “Nazi,” “homophobic,” “transphobic,” “domestic terrorist,” “conspiracy theorist,” etc.
CRT simply forbids us to see one another as unique persons each with differing perspectives, personalities, experiences, and sufferings. For example, Kendi has written that color-blindness is “a mask to hide racism.” I imagine this is exactly why Martin Luther King’s most iconic quote is nowhere to be found among the 15 quotations engraved on the memorial that was dedicated to him in Washington DC in 2011. To judge people “by the content of their character” rather than the color of their skin is anathema to CRT propaganda.
