The so-called mainstream media have been complicit in fueling the radical left.
But the problem is much bigger and goes deeper than corrupted media institutions.
And one journalist revealed the scary thing happening in public schools.
The Democrat Party and the left are currently in the throes of madness.
The hard left of the party is usurping the old guard establishment quickly, and the establishment is trying to decelerate the radical takeover by placating the socialist wing.
But the damage done by the left goes much deeper than that.
The far-left indoctrination begins at universities and trickles down into K-12 education.
And columnist Libby Emmons has first-hand experience with this troubling development.
Emmons has the perfect profile of a social justice warrior—Sarah Lawrence undergrad, Columbia MFA in theater, Brooklyn-based playwright—but she has since become disaffected with the left.
Emmons became awakened by the dangers of the left and has since written for Quillette, the Post Millennial, and currently serves as a senior contributor for The Federalist.
Emmons recently wrote a chilling tale about how her ten-year-old son is being brainwashed in New York City public schools.
Due to the Wuhan virus lockdowns, Emmons was able to listen in on her son’s distance learning lecture.
What she heard was startling.
Emmons quoted one of the teachers saying to the class:
“[T]oday what we’re going to talk about is systemic racism. Does anybody have anything that they might know about systemic racism? I know you’ve heard of racism, but this is a little different, it’s called systemic racism. And we’re going to watch a video on it, because this video does a good job of explaining it all to you.”
“Systemic racism” is the left’s favorite catch phrase because it doesn’t really mean anything and cannot be combated without “systemic change,” which is code word for some type of socialist policy.
The ideologues who use terms such as systemic racism are invariably Marxists or fellow travelers.
Their plan is to cynically use race to divide the country, and the methodology is to look for any disparities in society and immediately attribute them to racism.
Propaganda like the 1619 Project is pumping this stealth Marxist view into the heads of people across the country, and they’re targeting a younger and younger audience.
Emmons laid out that fact in her column:
“What this means is that the school is teaching kids how to interpret history before they learn the history they are meant to interpret. They’re telling kids what opinions to have before they’re giving the facts about which that opinion should be formed. Educators are making sure that these fourth graders look at history through the lens of critical race theory before they even know what that history is.”
This is an insidious plot by the left, and it’s only going to get worse unless people are made aware of what’s going on and push back against the ideologues and gutless bureaucrats that let it happen.
