It isn’t just that Critical Race Theory interests us, we are alarmed that such a Liberty and anti-Constitutional movement has gained so much in so little time.
I do believe that there is enough material out there that GraniteGrok could pile up days upon days of posts on Critical Race Theory and not run out for a long number of said days.
And yes, in reality, this is not just some overnight success. It is the proverbial “takes 12 years to become an overnight success.” And now it is a movement that is working to remove our heritage; that all men are equal (even if we didn’t start that way; our aspirations have always been to better this union) and replace it, as the Democrats forced upon us (and continue to do so) that a person is measured solely by the color of their skins.
Yet, Democrats are racists a THEY are the ones behind this effort. So let’s show what the Democrat Party wishes upon us, shall we? But first, we’ll take a gander of someone who is against it (harshes the race-baiters’ Narrative, doesn’t it?):

Marxist thinkers invented critical race theory (CRT) in order to upend society by claiming that hidden racism pervades American institutions. CRT teaches people to seize on any racial disparity as ipso facto proof of racial discrimination, despite the clear prohibitions on racial discrimination in federal law. Advocates claim that the American status quo is racist — if not “white supremacist” — so extreme measures to reverse historic injustices are the only “anti-racist” option.
Critical race theory teaches Americans to focus on skin color, reversing the ethic of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. It often involves demonizing “whiteness,” which some activists have defined as including everything from a good work ethic to capitalism to Christianity.
- And of course, Mayor Joyce Craig of Manchester, NH gets a mention: Manchester Touts Diversity Training, but Won’t Release Details to Public
Mayor Joyce Craig says she has enacted diversity training for city workers, but her office won’t share specifics on what that entails.
Last month, Craig told WMUR’s Adam Sexton that diversifying the city government’s workforce is a priority. “We have training for all our city employees, for diversity and cultural competency,” Craig said. “It has been an exciting opportunity for everyone here that is front-facing.”
Since that interview, NHJournal has repeatedly asked Craig and her administration for access to the materials used in this “all employee” training. Craig’s office has declined.
Just another reason why she should be defeated at the next election – who wants a Mayor that is against open and transparent Government. Oh yeah, Democrats.
The Walt Disney Corporation has ordered all headquarters employees to attend seminars that inject critical race theory, “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” and “white fragility” into their training. The way that City Journal’s Christopher Rufo describes what’s contained in the whistleblower documents he received from several Disney employees suggests the training regimen is designed to elicit guilt and shame from white employees while falsifying history.
…The core of Disney’s racial program is a series of training modules on “antiracism.” In one, called “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” the company tells employees that they must “take ownership of educating [themselves] about structural anti-Black racism” and that they should “not rely on [their] Black colleagues to educate [them],” because it is “emotionally taxing.” The United States, the document claims, has a “long history of systemic racism and transphobia,” and white employees, in particular, must “work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed.” Disney recommends that employees atone by “challeng[ing] colorblind ideologies and rhetoric” such as “All Lives Matter” and “I don’t see color”; they must “listen with empathy [to] Black colleagues” and must “not question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience.”
Way to go Disney – calling out their Black employees for being weak and stupid. That’s a great policy from the Imagineers: Whites must diminish themselves because Black are unable to raise themselves up. In that one bolded statement, Disney basically said that Blacks are inferior to Whites. Hey, it’s the Old South Democrat / KKK messaging all over again! There’s more but that starts the racist Disney ball rolling. And the messaging in this next bit is???
In another module, called “What Can I Do About Racism?,” Disney tells employees that they should reject “equality,” with a focus on “equal treatment and access to opportunities,” and instead strive for “equity,” with a focus on “the equality of outcome.” The training also includes a series of lessons on “implicit biases,” “microaggressions,” and “becoming an antiracist.” The company tells employees that they must “reflect” on America’s “racist infrastructure” and “think carefully about whether or not your wealth, income, treatment by the criminal justice system, employment, access to housing, health care, political power, and education might be different if you were of a different race.” (Author’s emphasis )
Yeah, the”Happiest place on Earth is pushing Socialism – the maker of the Most Miserable Places on Earth with that “equality of outcome” which makes us all the same. Imagine that – all the Imagineers being all the same with the same exact results – equality of outcome. And this is what Disney wants for us all?
So, there is such a thing as “Government Speech”? Just another name for Propaganda. Catch that “generally considered” bit below. That lawyer, John Edison, should be disbarred for going along with this nonsense.
- Minnesota School District Adopts ‘Black Lives Matter’ Slogan as ‘Official Government Speech‘ — ‘Exempt from Dissent‘
So there it is. A public school system in Minnesota has deemed “Black Lives Matter” and other various slogans to be privileged “official government speech,” thus making them “uniquely privileged” “official government speech,” generally considered to be exempt from challenge by dissenting opinion ordinarily protected under the First Amendment. Rochester Public School board members unanimously approved a sweeping resolution that authorizes the superintendent to actively promote the slogans Black Lives Matter, Brown Lives Matter, Indigenous Lives Matter, All Are Welcome Here, and Stop Asian Hate…
Moreover, RPS Superintendent Michael Muñoz is also directed to take all actions “that further the objectives” of the resolution, including by approving “messaging, signage, and visuals” for the slogans. The district also adopted the six-color “pride flag” as “government speech” to support “a message of inclusion” within schools, according to Just the News.
As reported by the local ABC News affiliate, KAAL TV, the school board claimed the resolution was a “legal defense move.” It’s the “Why is it a necessary legal defense?” question that should not be a shock to anyone. And here’s the answer, per KAAL:
By declaring certain phrases involving the Black Lives Matter movement as government speech, the board is protecting itself from legal action because it is allowing one type of speech, but not any speech in opposition to those phrases.
John Edison, the Rochester Public Schools attorney told KAAL:
“So here with adopting the messages that you’re adopting as government speech, you’re saying these are the messages that we’re communicating as a school district, and by doing that we’re not also creating a forum to allow other types of speech to enter the forum.”
Who knew that Government worker Janice Starkey of the Hanover School District had heard of it and believes that Silencing others that go against the Government Policies is both allowed and right? So Government Speech is that speech made up by politicians and government workers to shut the rest of us up? Starkey thinks so!
Don’t like something (as we are seeing) that the Right says? Just lazily and slothfully call it “racists”
- ‘Social Justice’ Class for Kids: ‘Make America Great Again’ Is ‘Covert White Supremacy’
Remember summer school? Driver’s education? Perhaps a typewriting class (which I “might” have taken). Easy, “non-serious” stuff. Welp, times have changed. Just ask students at Thomas Pyle Middle School in Maryland, who were enrolled in the school’s five-day “social justice” 2020 summer course, “Reading and Taking Action for Social Justice”. As reported by Just the News, Judicial Watch obtained presentation slides and other materials related to the almost unbelievable course.
In reference to a slide titled “What is systemic racism?”, students were shown a pyramid slide depicting “Differences between overt and covert white supremacy.”
(Click to embiggen)
According to the pyramid, “Make America Great Again” is an example of “covert white supremacy, ranked just below “lynching,” “hate crimes,” “the N-word,” and “racial slurs”. Students were also taught that “white privilege” means being favored by school authorities and having a positive relationship with the police. (Translation: “Yes, black students, teachers are out to get you — and your fear of the police is justified, so…”). More insanity: examples of other unacceptable covert “white supremacy” include thinking “but we’re just one human family,” “colorblindness,” “cultural appropriation,” “celebration of Columbus Day,” “police murdering POC [people of color],” and “bootstrap theory.”
- Diversity trainings get dangerously close to compelled speech, legal scholar argues (see above, Janice Starkey above)
The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech — but it also protects against compelled speech — yet many universities essentially compel a certain type of speech through diversity trainings. “Just as it is well-settled that the government cannot prohibit individuals from expressing an unpopular view, it’s also well-accepted that the state may not compel individuals to speak or adopt the government’s favorite point of view,” argued Terry Pell, president of the Center for Individual Rights.
And I have been fighting this coerced speech aspect of School Districts embedded in the NH School Board Association’s Policy JBAB (Transgender and None-Conforming Students) and pronouns. This new change of status by Government workers and elected Boards is evil and a throwing away of one of our Republic’s major pillars. It is DANGEROUS that Government is now starting to believe that it and it alone has the Power to determine what an Individual can and cannot say.
And yes, this crapola has turned into a racket:
Positive Coaching Alliance charges up to $10,000 for diversity and inclusion training
Little League baseball coaches in Alexandria, Virginia, will be required to take a diversity, equity, and inclusion course this month.
In an email to coaches on Thursday, Alexandria Little League board president Sherry Reilly announced the league’s partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance. All Little League coaches and board members were asked to cancel practices in order to attend the Sports Can Battle Racism workshop on May 24.
Virginia school districts have mandated similar training for their teachers. Arlington County schools required teachers to participate in an equity training program in which they were taught how to create an “actively antiracist learning environment.” Loudoun County schools spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on teacher training sessions based on critical race theory—the idea that American institutions are inherently racist.
A Sports Can Battle Racism workshop document for coaches includes six core themes, from “Create a Caring Climate” to “Model Anti-Racist Behavior.” Coaches are encouraged to teach themselves to perceive their own “internalized racism” and look for “potential institutional racism” in the community. Coaches are also asked to “be on the lookout” for moments that they can use as “anti-racism learning opportunities.”
