Holy cow! I thought I knew a little about Critical Race Theory (CRT), but this paper recently put out by the Heritage Foundation written by Christopher F. Rufo totally blew my mind. Please read this article: Critical Race Theory Would Not Solve Racial Inequality: It Would Deepen It . It’s a little long but well worth the time to read. Here’s a summary from the article:
“Critical race theory is an ideology which maintains that the United States is a fundamentally racist country and that American institutions such as the Constitution, property rights, color blindness, and equal protection under the law are vestiges of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalist oppression—all of which must be overthrown in the name of “anti-racism.” Ultimately, critical race theory and “anti racism” policies would deepen racial divisions and undermine the very institutions that are essential to addressing poverty and inequality across all racial groups. Policymakers concerned about these issues should reject critical race theory and orient public policy toward rebuilding the institutions of family, work, and education, which have been proven to lift Americans of all racial backgrounds out of poverty.”Critical Race Theory Would Not Solve Racial Inequality: It Would Deepen It, Christopher F. Rufo
As explained in the article, CRT in its ultimate form is anathema to all American conservative thought. The objective of its proponents is nothing less than the complete overthrow of our American way of life in favor of a race-based, fascistic autocracy with unelected leaders at its head.
This really cuts to the heart of the Liberty Relearned pro freedom/anti-tyranny message, so please click here to listen to the podcast, and please, share this with anyone who believes in the values of American conservatism: liberty, equality under the law, and free market capitalism, basically the American way of life.
