President Trump RIPS Critical Race Theory as “Psychological Abuse” in New Op-Ed
In spite of the efforts by Big Tech and the corporate media to silence former President Donald Trump, his message continues to get out as he arguably remains the most revered member of the Republican Party.
Former President Trump recently wrote an op-ed for RealClearPolitics that urged Americans to fight extreme racial theories plaguing our nation while pitching various reforms and solutions that Americans can utilize to win the battle. Trump’s focus lied on an extreme left-wing dogma called “critical race theory,” (CRT) a doctrine that teaches children to view the world through the racist lens of skin color and stresses the idea that America has an evil history.
Trump began arguing that America has for a long time been the most tolerant nation in the world, invoking famous words from the late Martin Luther King Jr.
“Instead of helping young people discover that America is the greatest, most tolerant, and most generous nation in history, it teaches them that America is systemically evil and that the hearts of our people are full of hatred and malice. Far from advancing the beautiful dream of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. — that our children should ‘not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character’ — the left’s vile new theory preaches that judging people by the color of their skin is actually a good idea.”
The former President went on to make perhaps one of his greatest attacks ever of the ideology, comparing its damaging effects on a child’s psyche to that of abuse.
“Teaching even one child these divisive messages would verge on psychological abuse. Indoctrinating generations of children with these extreme ideas is not just immoral — it is a program for national suicide. Yet that is exactly what the Biden administration endorsed recently in a rule published in the Federal Register aimed at inflicting a critical race theory-inspired curriculum on American schoolchildren.”
After criticizing CRT and explaining the harm it can bring, former President Trump urged Americans to stand up against it once and for all, offering various solutions for both citizenry and the legislature alike. These included both Congress and every state legislature “pass[ing] a ban on taxpayer dollars going to any school district or workplace that teaches critical race theory,” states passing “laws requiring that all lesson plans have to be made available to parent,” local organization of parents across the country against leftist “civics education” (described by Trump as a more extreme Common Core), and automatic vouchers for any parents who object to an institution’s teachings in order to grant choice over their child’s education.
Finally, former President Trump took a stab at tenure monopoly in the public K-12 education system, arguing that it is now a tool misused by educators across the nation in order to push political propaganda.
“Finally, states need to break the tenure monopoly in public K-12 schools. Tenure was originally supposed to protect competent teachers from being subjected to undue political influence; it has turned into a mechanism to protect incompetent teachers who themselves wield undue political influence over our children. Educators who are alienating children from their own country should not be protected with lifelong tenure; they should be liberated to pursue a career as a political activist.”
Unfortunately for left-wing activists from the media, big tech, and education establishment alike, it appears that the effort to silence former President Trump has largely failed. For the sake of our nation, one can only pray that Trump’s continued influence will push enough Americans across the nation to squash the poisonous political ideologies that permeate our education system once and for all.
