President Trump gave a fiery campaign-like speech in Arizona this weekend.
One of the topics on his agenda was critical race theory, or CRT.
This has been an absolute gift-horse from the Democrat Party to Donald Trump (if he decides to run) and could unite moderates to give Republicans unprecedented wins in 2022 and 2024.
The Problem with CRT
As I see it, there are two major problems with CRT being taught to our children.
First, the teachings are historically inaccurate.
The facts here are twisted to suit a specific narrative rather than having narrative dictated by the facts.
Second, the teachings are divisive and will create racial animosity in children at a very young age.
Trump is latching on to this to drive voters back to the booth for Republicans in the upcoming election cycles.
Trump touted CRT as being “flagrant racism” that has no place in our schools, yet now it is being forced into “every facet of our society.”
The former president stated, “We shouldn’t be apologizing to the world.
“We’re apologizing for America, just like Obama apologized. Remember, he apologized.
“They should be apologizing to America for what they’ve done to it. That’s who I think should be apologizing to.
“The Biden administration’s ‘America last’ philosophy … is also making a mockery of our country right here at home.
“Earlier this year, Biden signed an executive order pushing toxic, critical race theory into our children’s schools and into our military.
“How about our military? This poisonous left-wing doctrine is flagrant racism, plain and simple, and it has no place in our schools, no place in our military and no place in our country.”
Nobody believes our history is perfect, but our history is something to be proud of and learn from.
I can say without a doubt the world would be a far different place, a worse place, had our Founders not broken from the Crown to start our Republic.
