"We want a 'history' that makes us feel good. Look, we know it's largely or entirely bullshit, but we're planning on reifying it and anyone who has the temerity to challenge our saccharine view of this past had better be prepared to get attacked as an unpatriotic, radical socialist."

Well, a history that makes white people feel good, but yeah, that's the gist of it. An exception is definitely carved out for failed political ideologies though. White people are responsible for communism, but conservatives will teach the bejeezus out of that one.

Many people who oppose CRT do so because it goes way past simply teaching history.

It accuses one ethnicity (the current one that is fast shrinking) of being wholly responsible for the shortcomings of another ethnicity.

That is obviously wrong.

Especially in 2022.

Hope the Republicans win the House and Senate in a few months.

Maybe they can do something to stop this pernicious and unAmerican theory from alienating our young people.

CRT is used as a weapon by radicals. Treating White kids like they are guilty for what their ancestors did is wrong.
Okay, I'm gonna need a citation for this one. This claim is repeated constantly, but I've never heard anybody blaming anybody for something that other people did in the past.

Fun fact; CRT is not being taught in any public K-12 school anywhere in America.

Actually, that’s just the narrative.

What it really does is examine vestigial bullshit from slavery and Jim Crow still affecting black people today. And attempts to weed it out.

But it has the words “critical” and “race” right in the name. So it was easy to rule ignorant people up in focus groups.

You know that all of the things y’all repeat ad nauseum were selected through focus grouping them, right? Chose due to their elisitation of the desired emotional response.

It’s science, and the multi billion dollar industries utilizing that science for power and profit badly need regulation.

Do you reall believe the founders would have included modern persuasion science with the first amendment had they foreseen its use in establishing and maintaining every modern tyranny? As the Constitution simply denies all the tools of tyranny they were aware of to our government I doubt they would have let this one slip by.

Ive posted it before...I wont bother again...but the proponents of CRT arent teaching CRT to teach history. From their own mouths, they are attempting to indoctrinate...inflame...convert...and that cant be done without the promotion of hatred and responsibility of ownership. proponents want minority students angry and white students humbled and bowed.

That's not history. That's advocacy.

They do the same thing with homosexuality...they dont want a promotion of tolerance or acceptance...they want children to be conditioned to be 'allies'.

Its Marxism in action. And the reality is...its horribly destructive for no reason other than to seek political gain.

I'm all in on CRT. White people need to have their noses rubbed into their history of racism against brown, black, red and yellow people. Did I miss any colors? Hope not I try to be inclusive.

That is what history class is about. Most the histories of people have never participated in such treatment before they were born.

Yet non-whites who would describe themselves as persecuted by white people continue to demand entrance to majority white countries. And they risk their lives and pay large fees to do it. What sense does that make?

You're so gullible, the Republican manipulators count on people like you. Hey, throw him another fish, he voted for us again.

Hear, hear - this modern propaganda system seems to me, in conjunction with the policies it supports to take all the power and money, the greatest threat to our country in history. It weaponizes democracy - the power of people who are indoctrinated.

Here we go again with CRT being misconstrued as an "acknowledgement" about racial history: Whites need to 'own up' or whatever. And it stops there, since it's mostly white people that want to put on good racial showing.

CRT is about taking white privilege away, since it was unlawfully gained. If you're for CRT, you're also for wealth transfer from whites to Blacks.

Anything less is a performative show. We can acknowledge structural racism embedded in the law, yet we let whites keep 10 times the wealth of Blacks? Sorry, but that's not supporting CRT.

Another person who has no idea what CRT is but believed the propaganda fed to him by right wing media.

Try not to be so gullible.

Nah, that's not it. That's just your interpretation.

You people have told us until we were nauseous that there is no such thing as CRT.

What the hell happened that changed your mind now? Getting sick as hell of teaching 1st graders about sex? I got sick on that one. But it does not bother the left at all.

First graders are not being taught about sex.

The constant stream of lies need to stop.
