Critical Race Theory vs the Golden Rule

By: T.F. STERN | Self-Educated American

There have been many discussions of late regarding the teaching of Critical Race Theory in classrooms across the country.  There are varied opinions regarding the topic’s legitimate purpose, much less whether it should be used as an indoctrination tool in public schools where students are manipulated by social group think methods.

There used to be a simple thought process taught in schools, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.  This strange concept is often called the Golden Rule.  Jesus Christ shared this idea during His ministry and public-school administrators are reluctant to include it as part of basic social interaction, they have deemed it inappropriate based on its being religious indoctrination.  Social media ‘Fact Checkers’ might say the Golden Rule doesn’t meet with current Community Standards.

The definition of Critical Race Theory makes it a bit more interesting since those who are pushing this concept appear to have created their own religion, one which rivals Christianity; but I’m getting ahead of myself…

Wikipedia’s definition indicates that “Critical race theory is an academic movement of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the law as it intersects with issues of race and to challenge mainstream liberal approaches to racial justice. CRT examines social, cultural, and legal issues as they relate to race and racism.”

While similar to Wikipedia, Britannica’s definition holds that “Critical race theory (CRT), intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color.”

It would appear that the intellectual community, academic activists who have taken over the public schools, have incorporated Social Justice as a means of correcting mankind’s propensity to judge people by the color of his/her skin.  Not only to reprimand all lighter-skinned individuals for having judged a person by the color of their skin; but to recompense those with darker skin for hundreds of years, even thousands of years of presumed oppression.

The Judeo-Christian justice system, which the civilized world has used throughout recorded history, teaches an eternal principle, that individuals are responsible for their actions; responsible to their fellow citizens, and, more importantly, responsible to God.  Through the efforts of those wishing to replace that justice system with Social Justice, individual responsibility would be altered into a collective responsibility.  This corruption of reality is at the heart of the intellectual argument.

The Fake China Defector Story

By: Cliff Kincaid

Just Like liberals, conservatives are suckers for a big story that sounds good and confirms their preconceived prejudices. Consider this from Mike Huckabee: “Information from Chinese Defector Might Change the Course of History.” It’s the conservative equivalent of the fake news Russian disinformation dossier.

Does anyone seriously believe that a legitimate top Chinese intelligence official would defect to the United States under the China Joe Administration? As researcher Jim Simpson says, “Why would the guy take his life in his hands for the Biden crowd? Insane?”

The “defector” is either insane or the story is a Chinese plant. My suspicion is the latter.

The story comes from a sex-scandal columnist for the conservative website Red State who lives in a blue state and whose bio identifies her as a “sports fanatic.” Jennifer Van Laar broke the story of former Democratic Rep. Katie Hill’s sex scandal and now wants us to believe her deep sources in the intelligence community confirm there is an alleged defector from the Chinese Ministry of State Security, Dong Jingwei, in the hands of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), spilling the beans on China.

China claims the spymaster is still in China doing his job.

Even if the official has come to the U.S. for whatever reason, the story is reminiscent of the notorious Russian “defector” Yuri Nosenko, who conveniently showed up in America after the JFK assassination to tell U.S. intelligence agencies that Lee Harvey Oswald was not under Soviet KGB control. Oswald, a Marxist member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, had defected to Russia and then returned to the U.S.

The motive was clear: the Russians wanted to avoid another confrontation with the United States and escape responsibility for murdering an American president.
