The Critical Race Theory May Help Republicans Win a Majority in the House of Representatives in 2022

Critical race Theory

WASHINGTON, DC, July 29 — The Critical Race Theory [CRT] is a significant political issue, but it is intended to foster racial division and anger in our country. It also casts progressive socialist candidates in a very unappealing light. As such, it has the potential of giving Republicans a chance to win back the House of Representatives come to the mid-term elections in 2022.

In a nutshell, the Heritage Foundation says the Critical Race Theory makes race the prism through which its proponents analyze all aspects of American life. And, CRT’s intolerance can be found in schools, the workplace, and the entertainment sector, “normalizing” belief in systemic racism for the average American.

As the Wall Street Journal points out: “Over time, Democrats have lost some working-class voters for cultural reasons, and the woke rhetoric among party progressives may exacerbate that problem. That’s why so many Republicans are using the spread of critical race theory—which advances the argument that America remains in the grip of systemic racism—as a cudgel against Democrats.”

The Washington Examiner reports that a recent Economist/YouGov poll “showed 58 percent of Americans polled find the controversial curriculum somewhat or very unfavorable.” Fifty-five percent of participants in the survey said they understood what the CRT curriculum suggests — that America is an unforgivably racist country and always has been, concluding that it is bad for the country.

The Examiner went on to note that 86% of Democrats had a favorable view of the CRT, compared to 6% of Republicans. In addition, “the poll revealed that independents were more likely to side with the GOP, with 20% expressing a favorable view of critical race theory, compared to 76% with an unfavorable view.”

Finally, a survey conducted by Parents Defending Education in May showed that political extremism in the classroom harms their kids, and they want it to stop. “Seventy-four percent said they were somewhat or strongly opposed to teaching students that white people are inherently privileged and black and other people of color are inherently oppressed. Similarly, only 6% of respondents favored schools assigning white students the status of ‘privileged’ and non-white students the status of ‘oppressed’ – versus 88% opposed, including 78% strongly opposed.”

Thus, as Republican strategist Ford O’Connell told The Hill just last week, the CRT is decidedly an issue that can motivate voters, whatever their party affiliations. He said it is, indeed, an issue with the ability to result in a “red wave” at the polls. Thus, it is likely that GOP candidates will use the CRT as a means of amassing bipartisan votes.

It’s a powerful message, perhaps so powerful, that Ra Shad Frazier-Gaines appears to be suggesting that Democratic candidates should try to steer clear of CRT discussions. As he told The Hill: “I don’t see the need for any member of Congress to address that in their platform. If they’re asked by [the] media, I personally think that they should divert that energy and attention to superintendents of education for their state and school board members. That is the easiest way for them to stay out of fire.”

The Critical Race Theory indoctrinates its adherents that they are right and that its opponents are wrong. However, polling continues to suggest that voters will reject it out of hand.

Critical Race Theory is simply based on false leftist assumptions that purposely ignore the overwhelming progress that has been made in our “melting pot” nation. However, voters have a taste for facts when deciding on a candidate, according to one observer, like the fact that “the most divisive war in which our country was engaged is unassailably the Civil War. If anything, that conflict was the deadliest war in which the U.S. has ever been involved, and it was fought to free black slaves and quash the most pernicious possible form of racism, slavery. And it is another fact that before the war over, Abraham Lincoln, America’s first Republican president, signed the Emancipation Proclamation, something for which America is and always will be proud.

Critical Race Theory needs to be put back into its twisted original academic and political obscurity from whence it came.

Time to cancel the cancel culture, wokeness, Antifa, CRT, and all the other garbage the ultra liberal left is promoting. It’s “grass roots” time to turn around this madness in 2022. If it doesn’t turn around in ’22, it will be too late for anything in 2024.

I don’t know what we can do about cancel culture. I said something simply honest about not caring for a certain type of people, and my granddaughter told me I was “canceled.” Now I am unsure whether I can go to the Safeway or Target and I am afraid to use my credit cards. Don’t know how it works. Maybe after another few months. But what if I say something else that gets me “canceled” again? At least I can go to church and probably the Red Robin but I’m not sure where else.

Republicans MUST stick together if they want to win. The Reps who seem to favor the Dems will also suffer the consequences if the commies come out ahead. Maybe they don’t realize it, which doesn’t surprise me. Keep praying, and by all means, keep fighting!

Yes if people are smart an vote every Democrat out office on every level of government. From your town, state and federal levels. I don’t mean these rhino Republicans ether. Republicans need to stop infighting and stand together or we will fall.

Unless we have an honest election, republicans will never control either branch of Congress again. And when they did control both branches, they refused to pass the legislation they had pretended to support in order to get elected, so I’m not sure why it even matters. Democrats want the country to go to Hell in a handbasket at breakneck speed, and republicans want the country to go to Hell in a handbasket at just barely less than breakneck speed.

The really bad aspect of CRT is that there is no redemption from whatever racisicity a person natively has. Has the CRT crowd ever known let’s say a white person who’s feeling is that racism is the LAST thing on their minds? They exist and should be applauded. Instead the CRT people accuse such people, who are REALLY trying, as liars and unredeemable bigots! This is a recipe for continual war between groups (who all have different “truths.”). These CRT people have no solution for their analysis – only their assessment. The America I have known is a country with solutions that WORK.

As I have said before, those who accuse others of racism without even knowing them or what they stand for are the true racists themselves. We need to stop listening to this garbage and support those who will not stand for this garbage either.

CRT pits us against each other, and that serves the goal to divide us. Look at masking and “vaccination” as similar. These are indoctrinations so that you hate your fellow Americans and don’t notice that the marxists scum infesting our government are stripping away your freedoms.

This started back during the early years of the Obama Administration. People were encouraged to believe that America had become a racist nation. I grew up in the sixties and remember Dr. King and President Kennedy who were leaders and did not support racism, but supported equality for all according to the Constitution. Were they both alive they would be horrified at what is happening in America today. JMHO

True but the dems are already putting their cheating and fraud in place to make sure they steal as many elections as possible. They already dragging out the covid scare to make sure they can again do millions of “mail in” ballots.

CRT is promoted to divide the country. The statement: “Critical Race Theory is simply based on false leftist assumptions that purposely ignore the overwhelming progress that has been made in our “melting pot” nation.” would be better served by replacing the words “false leftist assumptions” with ‘antagonistic leftist assumptions’. CRT is bad for the country and should not be found, as promoted, in any of our schools, public or private. Why indoctrinate our children to hate each other and our country, which is a learned trait, not one they were born with? Parents, and by delegation, school teachers, are those responsible for the children being anti-USA. As to our country, it’s a great place to live, love it or leave it.

What’s being taught to our kids now will eliminate critical thinking in any capacity. We have been trying to force theory into the fact category for way too long. Our poor kids won’t be able to distinguish one from the other.

Maybe it’s time for Red States to secede from the Union and just let the Blue States sink in their over taxation.
Every Red State should gather up and bus EVERY ILLEGAL to a one way ticket to a Blue State. Otherwise, Jackass Joe’s plan to seed Red States will succeed with planting ignorant Democrats to overwhelm us just like what they’ve done to California.

The media is totally for the Dems. Add all the “Democrat, No Matter What” voters and the Republicans don’t have a chance. When the two we have now got elected and will be reelected, say goodbye to the USA. It will become: DSA = Democrat States of America

The democrats don’t have any common sense policies, so they use the blacks like they have done all along with this phony race card mantra. Why do all these immigrants want to come to America? They know they would have the best opportunity to succeed. But not if these democrat buffoons are allowed to destroy us with this communist bs they’re shoving down our throats. They want this covid hoax to last forever so they can control us unabated-evil personified!!!

CRT, is right out of the handbook of cultural marxism on how to destroy a nation’s culture to bring it down.

Of course it could lead to more Republican seats in Congress. That’s the whole reason the millionaire private jet consultant class has taken an issue that isn’t even an issue and elevated it to the most momentous thing in our national history. The actual story is: some academics think we should teach history a little differently than we have been.

Anyway, I remember when gay marriage was still a pipe dream for the left, but the fact that conservatives insisted on shouting it to the rooftops actually gave it more political fuel and led to it becoming a reality. So, go ahead and do what you’re doing with CRT; I’m sure it’ll work out great!

Thanks for the information from Nick the BLM representative. So it isn’t an issue, it’s all invented by wealthy jet set consultants and we should just ignore it. Ever hear the old saw about the “frog in the frying pan”..

On the Navy’s reading list, just take a look,
Recommended is, Kendo’s book.

Since one must be antiracist at heart,
Capitalism is where you must start.

Critical Race Theory, shine the lamps,
Communist re-education camps.

Loan forgiveness, shine the light,
That is UNLESS that farmer happens to be white!

There are Christians on here, with God’s Word are wise,
Listen my friend and let God’s wisdom be your prize.

”It is better to listen to the rebuke of a wise man,
Than for one to listen to the song of fools.”

ps. Nick, God’s Word for good morals is wisdom, believe on the LORD Jesus Christ, as your sin-bearer and have His wisdom, righteousness, etc. Then abortion, transgender, etc. will be clearly seen as the abominations that they are!

Bill, do you ever wear clothes of wool and linen woven together? I sure hope not; it’s forbidden in both Exodus and Deuteronomy. Unless you think that there are some parts of the Bible that are silly and antiquated and don’t need to be followed?

Nick, on occasion I refer back to my comment and I noticed that mine, you again did frequent. For your sake and the gospel, I hope this was time well spent!

Anything sound, the Darwin/Marxist does criticize,
All about race – the godless they victimize.
Hating the Bible and it’s author, God!
Seeking to run over all Christians roughshod.

Total rewrite of history, though ‘you’ say, “little”,
All broken strings on your social Communist fiddle!
Sodomy, child murder, transgender and the like,
Of their lusts God gives them over – Yikes!

Knowledge of why this increase has begun,
Can be found, in ROMANS Chapter One!
If you read Scripture, you may understand more,
Meaningful whether literal or metaphor.

O.T. types and antetypes in Christ fulfilled,
Symbolism – atheists criticism killed.
Prophecies fulfilled by Jesus galore!
In The resurrected Christ – you can be sure!

Without Bible knowledge or cultural history,
From proper hermeneutics you flee.
Atheists and skeptics have searched through the ages,
”Look we found this”, non-issue in it’s pages.

Animal hair and plants – do not mix,
This the skeptic through time picks?
No other book has been thus scrutinized,
Led by Satan, the father of lies.

Ever since Satan in mankind’s fall has debuted,
His lies in one way or another refuted.
There are many Commentaries by Bible scholars,
Vindicating Scripture, even the Internet hollers!

Though one day soon, conservatives may be censored,
Advantage now when at least some truth may be ventured.
Down through the years, collecting books though they are old,
With history being rewritten – soon they’ll be ‘good as gold’!

God’s Ten Commandments, our nation’s past benefit,
Rid them and bid them, the immoral and misfit!
Both the Old and New Testaments main theme,
CHRIST AND THE CROSS, the Scriptures do scream!

Man’s imperfect character, instead of Gods,
Vainly in darkness the skeptic prods.
Attack Scripture, “There was no Hittite Empire!l
Archaeology later proved them a liar!

Searching the Bible, trying to find some thing wrong,
The O.T. Lamb of God, is the N.T. song! ! !
Here and there you may nit pick,
Christ and heaven or sin, death and hell – take your pick?

”The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”
JOHN 1:29

”But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe;
for there is no distinction;
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;
ROMANS 3:21-24

”And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them saying, ‘Be saved from this perverse generation !”
ACTS 2:40

“ They said, Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household,”
ACTS 16:31

Republicans will take back the House and Senate. A red wave. That’s nice. What are they going to do with that? Repeal Obamacare? Reign in the budget? Root out CRT in all of its forms from our schools? Go after tech companies censuring? Stop the political harasment of conservatives and relaese the Jan 6th protesters being held in solitary? etc. etc. etc.? I doubt it.

Too many Republicans seem to be afraid of Nancy and the “squad”. Sad. Time to root out the rhinos as well.

CTR fits into the Far left communists agenda. They have been dumbing down our children in schools for decades especially after Reagan went out of office. The Teachers Unions went totally corrupt, just like the Teamsters union. The Communists are doing everything they can to take over our Beautiful Free Country. The Liberal Dems in our Government have been bought out for money and power. We have to STOP them. Fauci was complicite in doing everything they could to destroy our economy.

In the film Network, The Old Guy News Anchor may be delusional, but he is actually speaking the truth. Odd that back then this was even allowed to be part of the film. He was criticizing the press and the way the media twists the news. The character saw it first hand and it went against his moral code of ethics. The history now of the demise of the newspaper business, and the takeover of that corner of the media world has allowed those who are hell bent on destroying the country in whatever way is the most expedient. The press, media, left dogs , now truly reveal that the tail is wagging the dog. What is amazing is that those oh so educated journalist who work so diligently at producing the GARBAGE we see each night and day in the media, believe they are safe and that they are doing the world a favor. They don’t know the truth from a lie anymore. We see nothing but talking heads.
My greatest concern is that the facts will soon cease to be important to anyone. Apathy will set in and the world will begin to spin down. Even the lies fraud and deceit will be nothing but mundane thought. Consider that in the very very very near future, the Hotel industry will begin to soften, and some realms will completely shutdown due to lack of clients. Why , who cares about vacations, who cares about travel, who cares about seeing some other sight in the country just for the pleasure of it. who cares about visiting relatives. Apathy, being tired of the hassle, the rules the regs, the lack of consideration, fear, complacency. just like inflation it is on the way. Ok , great get a 10 acre plot of ground out in the boonies and go off grid and ??? and ??? forget about the rest of the world. find safety, find an apathetic lifestyle to try to exist in. Might as well be on Mars alone for the rest of your life. The liberal left is attempting to turn our heads. They too believe in, turn the other cheek, but they have a different response, once down then they kick us, and deflate our initiative, all in an effort to put themselves in a better position of power so that they can implement ideas and rules that will perpetuate their style of life. ??? Ya know as an example. we buy alot of stuff !!!!! from China. All kinds of products. So much so that we can’t get car parts as quickly as we once did. because of the pandemic, and trade issues. Problem is China wants to swing the hammer, they want it all their way, well what happens when the US consumer no longer can afford to buy China’s products. what happens when the US consumer has been kicked to the curb by the liberal left so much that we can’t go another mile. Who will buy my Beautiful Flowers. A haunting tune that makes one wonder how much more can we AMERICANS endure. How much more are we going to be asked to accept before it is too much to bare. I see the hand writing on the wall folks. Someone has to stand up and push back, and it isn’t going to be the lip wristed , yellow dogs that stole the election. It has to be US. Yea YOU and ME and all the good people who are seeing what I am seeing. We can’t let the apathy take over. How about this not so sweet thought… ” Wow , remember when we used to go to the park and sling the frizbee and walk around the lake and get the gelato and watch the people doing so many fun things.” I hate to believe that we will lose that life. 246 years since the Declaration of Independence was signed. and we find ourselves looking at the light at the end of the tunnel and it is a train. and we are the ones about to be run over. DO NOT BELIVE FOR ONE SECOND THAT THE NEXT ELECTION WILL BE FAIR. Come on people they have figured out how to fix it and they will. Read my Lips “”” FOLLOW THE MONEY “”” !!! I for one am in the same mindset as the OLD NEWS ANCOR,,,IN THE FILM,, I’M MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE… SOMEONE HAS TO STAND UP AND PUSH BACK AND SOON. GOODBYE YELOW BRICK ROAD?
