    Surge Summary: Progressives have managed to turn Martin Luther King’s “Dream” upside down. The increasingly popular – and twisted – “Critical Race Theory” is telling Americans we SHOULD judge people NOT on the content of their character, but on the color of their skin. Government schools – public schools – are often the current culprits in peddling this reverse-racist, anti-social twaddle.

    Killing King’s Dream

    Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his life fighting for civil rights in America.  His eloquent speech at the Lincoln Memorial should be required reading for every child and policymaker in America, especially our school teachers and college professors.

    What they are teaching today – critical race theory – is killing King’s dream of a society where we are judged based on the content of our character rather than the color of our skin.

    Case in point:  A video has emerged from Loudoun County, Virginia.  In the video, a teacher shows a student a picture of two women and asks what he sees.  The student says, “It’s just two people chillin.”  The teacher asks, “There’s nothing more to that picture?”  And so it goes until the teacher is harassing the student about the race of each woman.

    That’s critical race theory. It turns Martin Luther King’s legacy and teachings upside down.  It is not striving for a racially blind society.  It is striving for a society where the only thing you can see is race.

    This isn’t an isolated incident.  This isn’t just one bad apple.  When parents began organizing to fight back against this radical agenda, teachers and elected officials — public servants paid by the taxpayers — secretly plotted to hack, dox and smear them!  I am pleased to report that there is now an active recall campaign against six Loudoun County school board members.

    I know there are some people who are skeptical of vaccines and don’t trust the government and medical elites.  We can have that debate.  But there is no debate about this: Critical race theory is a poison being injected into the brains of our children that will destroy this country more efficiently than any virus or vaccine developed to fight it.

    My friends, you must fight for your local schools!  It will be unpleasant. You will be criticized.  You may lose friends.

    But unless we’re willing to sit by and lose the country in one more generation, we must stop what is happening in our public schools.

    If you can, I urge you to consider Christian schools, homeschooling, creating pods or coops of like-minded parents who can take turns teaching your children.  But we cannot allow this to continue in our public schools that we are all paying for, and where the vast majority of our children are being indoctrinated.
