With the moral teaching of parents shifting to the school, a vast number of programmed Marxist graduates are being concentrated into government, the media, and corporate leadership. Parents have been sidelined out of fear that any challenges to the curriculum will isolate their children and pin their parents as bigots, conspiracy cracks or Christians out of touch with the woke generation, and ultimately afraid their employer will cut them lose for not upholding these intoxicating values.
There is a climate of fear facing our schools and employees attending a CRT session in the workplace where one might be construed as not woke enough or walking on eggshells over a potential inappropriate phrase. Clearly, the West is in trouble with the moral teaching shifted from the parent to the schools and where the cultural power in society is now derived from a socio-political upheaval in government, companies, and the education system.
A well-known Marxist headlined a diversity and inclusion session at an elite California K-12 preparatory school. Angela Davis, a militant black power activist, long accused of anti-Semitism in backing the BDS movement against Israel and the recipient of the Soviet Union’s International Lenin Peace Prize in 1979 for her praise of dictator Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik Revolution that left millions of people dead, informed students that we would need to take apart capitalism if we wanted a more progressive direction…if we want our children to move in a trajectory that is described by freedom.
Davis, who was at one time on the FBI’s most wanted list for her involvement in a courtroom plot that left many dead, referenced the Black Lives Matter movement, environmental justice, and the transgender fight. She urged students to struggle against the notion that the United States is the best country in the world and that racism is a product of capitalism. Davis said freedom is not an endpoint but rather an infinite struggle.
More than a thousand students were saturated with a session against their very own country and democracy. The spokesperson for the school considered Davis’s lecture would be good for students to focus on activism…a teachable moment. Be clear, this same teaching is taking place in many schools.
It is simply wrong to teach kids these socially constructed race categories. The woke values do not include openness to a variety of other points of view and civil debate. The phrase “white privilege” will shame children who would have otherwise strived with integrity and esteem to achieve advantages regardless of one’s racial background. In contrast, competition taught at all levels in school regardless of one’s skin color has created determination, perseverance, character and strongest economy the world has ever seen; and yet we have still not lived to see a progressive Marxist country excel to greatness. Make no mistake that graduating students under CRT teachings would move forward in life with far less freedom and opportunity; and remain uninspired in mediocrity while the leftist elites solidify their grip to power. It is a destructive ideology to teach children to be pessimistic and full of grievance rather than being full of optimism and gratitude.
In the grip to control the progressive political narrative of the left and Democrat Party in America, the blatant and overt actions of Big Tech, whether Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, or Google is overwhelmingly evident in their targeting of conservatives and those who align politically with former President Donald Trump.
Recent post-election turmoil in Washington made it a most convenient opportunity to up the ante in eliminating free speech in a coordinated effort by Big Tech to remove posts, news organizations, and shutting down independent social media venues operating on Big Tech’s servers. They all but engaged in a book burning bonfire that is emblematic of past harsh and oppressive regimes seeking to censor, silence, and crush our prevailing culture that threatens the Neo-Marxist global utopia. Big Tech is working toward total control of our lives and extinguishing purported extreme values and opposing political power threatening their monopolistic stranglehold.
Big Tech is the state-run social media arm of the Democrat Party in deciding whose First Amendment rights will remain viable and protected. It should come to no surprise that Facebook injected $500 million into swing state counties with questionable late night ballot dumps during the 2020 Presidential Election.
It is a very dangerous game when the civil rights of conservatives are being violated and censored in their ability to communicate an opposing political position. Yet, Big Tech has no issues permitting China or Iran to spew narratives thwarting democratic values or inflammatory posts against freedom in Hong Kong or the elimination of the Jewish State of Israel. A very similar scenario took place last century with Nazi Germany silencing the opposition; and followed by mankind uttering the words ‘Never Again’ when millions of people were brutally executed in concentration camps.
Former President Trump decried Big Tech’s censorship following an interview he gave to his daughter-in-law Lara Trump when the talk was removed from Facebook and Instagram. The former President said, “What is happening in this country – nobody ever thought would happen. It is total censorship. You don’t have free speech in the country”. The social media giants justified the podcast being removed by saying it featured President Trump speaking and the voice of Donald Trump past or present will be blocked. Facebook’s oversight board, known as their “Supreme Court” has voted to continue blacklisting Trump from the platform with no planned date to lift the ban.
African American sports journalist Jason Whitlock had his twitter account locked out for posting a tweet criticizing Marxist Black Lives Matter founder and executive director, Patrice Cullors, for buying a $1.4 million home in an exclusive L.A. neighborhood. Whitlock, when railed for the tweet, said Cullors had a lot of options on where to live and she chose one of the whitest places in California (88% white, 1.8% black) and that he found her to be hypocritical as a trained Marxist and advocate of the BLM movement to act like a capitalist.
It has been reported that Cullors has purchased four properties totaling $3 million. There are some estimates that BLM has raised $90 million in 2020 through various individual and corporate donations, however it is unclear how the leaders are paid because the organization’s finances are opaque.
Whitlock has long criticized BLM to be one of Big Tech’s “sacred cows” and for being the antithesis of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Civil Rights Movement which was founded in Christian love. Simply put, Marxism’s rejection of Christianity is a rejection of King. A Twitter spokesperson said Whitlock’s tweet violated the Twitter rules on imparting private information, yet the NBA’s lead activist Lebron James’ tweet picturing a police officer with a life-threatening message towards the officer was widely viewed and shared.
If BLM leader Cullors, Lebron James, and Big Tech truly cared about Black lives, they might turn their attention beyond the few tragic deaths in police apprehensions to the greater plight and racism facing Blacks in America. There are over 7,000 African American murders in American cities annually where cultural differences and economic disparity has kept races apart is a critical tragedy.
The way of life and crime in minority neighborhoods may never change in our diversly rooted world where human beings are by nature tribalistic and tend to assimilate more closely with a group. We do not see Blacks moving from the Englewood district of Chicago to homes dominated by Whites in Streeterville nor do we witness Whites in Auburn Hills moving into the inner neighborhoods of Detroit. BLM leader, Cullors, had the opportunity but she chose to be close to the wealth she had accumulated.
One other major tragedy on an unimaginable genocidal scale in predominately Black neighborhoods is the strategic ethnic cleansing measures put in place by the government to target the births a great American racial group. With over 700 Planned Parenthood abortion mills, it is estimated that nearly 80% of the facilities are strategically located in urban centers mostly dominated in minority or black neighborhoods. Black babies at some of these locations are aborted at four times the rate as white ones. The African American women are clearly the target customer far beyond the women’s right to choose or simply the platform for reproductive freedom. Planned Parenthood has stepped into the gap with government funds to alleviate inconvenient economic fetal matter and remain in business with a steady flow of Black customers.
