At the Core of Critical Race Theory
Bill Proclaims CRT's Marxist Roots
Critical Race Theory is a Marxist ideology that opposes the founding ideals, the form of government, and the way of life in our country, states a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives. Dan Bishop (R-NC) and a dozen co-sponsors introduced House Resolution 1303 on July 29, 2022. The resolution’s purpose is to establish the Marxist roots of Critical Race Theory and detail the threat this divisive ideology poses to the public.
The bill summarizes the following facts about Critical Race Theory (CRT):
Its objective is to call into question the founding and moral legitimacy of the U.S. It does this by framing the U.S. as an intrinsically unjust, oppressive and racist nation. It stereotypes people as oppressors or oppressed based solely on their skin color.
Its creators openly describe themselves as Marxists. Analogous to Karl Marx’s The Communist Manifesto, which seeks to abolish bourgeois private property, CRT seeks to eradicate a special kind of property called “whiteness.” Proponents call for the establishment of a “Dictatorship of the Antiracists,” parallel to Karl Marx’s “Dictatorship of the Proletariat.”
It opposes the U.S. Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the American founding ideals of individual rights. It assails the foundations of the liberal order, including equality theory, legal reasoning, Enlightenment rationalism and neutral principles of constitutional law.
It requires its activists to radically transform U.S. society, as mandated by Karl Marx’s theology of dialectical materialism. Its implementation by the government violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
Its supporters say the only remedy for past discrimination is future discrimination. Any such action is a violation of the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause.
What can you do? At present, the bill has been referred to the House Judiciary and House Foreign Affairs committees for consideration. You can urge your elected representatives to support and pass this bill. Step 1: Write your U.S. Representative and ask them to vote “Yes” on House Resolution 1303 of the 117th Congress. To do this, you can go to Congress.gov, search for H.Res. 1303, find “Give Feedback on This Bill,” and click on “Contact Your Member.” Write and send your message. Step 2: You may need to keep after them until they pass the bill.
Critical Race Theory Clearly Marxist
In a recent interview Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and expert on Critical Race Theory, had this to say about CRT:
What is Critical Race Theory?
The definition is pretty simple. Critical Race Theory maintains that the U.S. is a fundamentally racist country and that all its institutions--from the Constitution, to the law, to the nuclear family, to the social institutions, manners and morays--preach the values of liberty and equality, but these are really just smoke screens for naked racial domination. And, so, they look at the entirety of American history, from the Declaration to the Constitution, even to Abraham Lincoln, and then to the Civil Rights Act, and they say “It appears that there’s racial progress; it appears there’s reconciliation, but that’s an illusion. Actually, it’s just that power has become more sophisticated, more subtle and more insidious.” And, so, you’re starting from that point and then you’re analyzing any social phenomenon and you’re, surprise, surprise, discovering not only that it’s a manifestation of racism, but they try to say “We are going to give you tools to show exactly how that’s true.”
What kind of ideology is Critical Race Theory?
It’s much more a direct Marxist revolutionary philosophy. What they really want is a total leveling of society. And when they’re grasping around for solutions, that’s where you can really get to the crux of what Critical Race Theory is. You take that old Marxist framework of oppressor and oppressed, the war between the classes, you substitute racial categories for economic categories. So, they say the history of the U.S. is not the history of the rich oppressing the poor, but it’s really a history of whiteness and blackness.
And, so, what do they want? They want to overturn capitalism. They think of whiteness and property as synonymous and mutually reinforcing. They also think that some of those key Constitutional pillars such as free speech allow racial domination, so you really need to have a regulator or state power to suppress the speech of people. They want a focused state power. They look to postcolonial regimes in Africa that seize lands and wealth and then redistribute it along racial lines.
When you put all these elements together, you’re really getting the end of the Constitutional system. Because, look, if you don’t have free speech, you don’t have individual rights, you don’t have equal protection under the law…”
U.S. democracy will end under the full implementation of Critical Race Theory.
