This week I published a podcast and an essay about the spread of Critical Theory in our society. This dishonest ideology teaches that white men are the source of everything wrong throughout history, and that we have built social structures that reinforce our racism and white supremacy. Christopher Rufo has been digging into the use of Critical Theory in federal government employment, and last week Tucker Carlson had him on his show. We all know that President Trump watches Tucker, so this is one of the best ways to expose the president to information that his staff might otherwise shield him from.
Tucker gets results. Yesterday evening, the Director of the Management and Budget Office Russ Vought issued a statement saying that federal agencies must cease spending taxpayer dollars to force their employees to sit through seminars based on Critical Race Theory and so-called white privilege:
It has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date “training” government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda
The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions.
Cultural Marxists have been using Critical Theory to divide Americans and weaken Western Civilization for nearly a century, and the fact that it has become embedded in employee training programs throughout the federal government is an indictment on conservatives who should have nipped this in the bud decades ago. This is a great start, but the rot runs deep, especially in our K-12 and higher education systems. We have a long way to go.
