Critical race theory and critical thinking can't coexist, they are mutually exclusive.

I haven't thought about Democrats since Jan 20th 2021.

I've been watching all the reforms and stuff that Republican states have been passing. One of my favorite places to watch is Montana. They JUST flipped red in 2020, electing Republican Governor Greg Gianforte after a decade of Democrap rule.

Gianforte is sniffing out unnecessary regulations like a free market dog, and I love it.

The Frankfurt School has entered the chat.

It all goes back to the Hegelian Dialectic, twisted by Marxism, then re-targeted by Marcuse and the rest of the Critical Theorists.

Not only are they mutually exclusive, but they're training children to think with critical theory, rather than with critical-thinking.

Straight from the horses mouth (I don't know how to do a quote block that's multiple paragraphs):

The critical-thinking tradition is concerned primarily with epistemic adequacy. To be critical is to show good judgment in recognizing when arguments are faulty, assertions lack evidence, truth claims appeal to unreliable sources, or concepts are sloppily crafted and applied. For critical thinkers, the problem is that people fail to “examine the assumptions, commitments, and logic of daily life… the basic problem is irrational, illogical, and unexamined living” (Burbules and Berk 1999, 46). In this tradition sloppy claims can be identified and fixed by learning to apply the tools of formal and informal logic correctly.

Critical pedagogy begins from a different set of assumptions rooted in the neo-Marxian literature on critical theory commonly associated with the Frankfurt School. Here, the critical learner is someone who is empowered and motivated to seek justice and emancipation. Critical pedagogy regards the claims that students make in response to social-justice issues not as propositions to be assessed for their truth value, but as expressions of power that function to re-inscribe and perpetuate social inequalities. Its mission is to teach students ways of identifying and mapping how power shapes our understandings of the world. This is the first step toward resisting and transforming social injustices. By interrogating the politics of knowledge-production, this tradition also calls into question the uses of the accepted critical-thinking toolkit to determine epistemic adequacy.” From “Tracking Privilege-preserving Epistemic Pushback in Feminist and Critical Race Philosophy Classrooms,” Hypatia, by Alison Bailey, p. 881.

Go FL and TX

Someone else here said it once and it bears repeating

We will end up with 25-ish states that have CRT training and 25-ish that don't

So in 20 years, children who grew up in certain states will have radically different views from the children that grew up in the other states

So much so that they will probably be unable to ever find common ground or agree on the very fabric of the US

This is the balkanisation of US, that can only end in secession or war

If I understand correctly Abbott didn't ban CRT outright. He left it up to the teachers. Or something like that. It was a watered-down ban.

booblitchutz 13 points ago +13 / -0

First of all, Abbot doesn’t make laws, the legislature does. He can only sign or veto the law. I know with the last year we have grown accustomed to Abbot having absolute power.

Second, the law bans the school district or state education agencies from requiring CRT or accepting funding or trainings on CRT and requires them to include lessons on American Exceptionalism. It doesn’t explicitly ban a teacher from teaching white hate but it can’t be part of the curriculum. Parents can pressure the school boards to remove teachers that are going off the curriculum.

Also you can no longer get school credit for attending a BLM riot, which believe it or not, was a thing.

imnotdeadyet 6 points ago +6 / -0

You can bet these teachers will teach it. They get their marching orders from the union. The only hope is to catch them on video, expose it and let the parents go nuts at school board meetings and demand they be fired. If we can fire a few of them, then we may be able to get it out of the schools, but it is going to take a long time and the left is the left. They will not go done without a fight. We also need to get the lefty's off these school boards. It is starting to happen in Texas, but we have a long way to go.

DeplorableCentipede 1 point ago +1 / -0

In general, I find that most people will accept the liberal ideas they are taught but the minority that does reject those ideas will reject them more strongly and be better equipped to counter them than those who are simply taught that the ideas are wrong or aren’t exposed to them at all. This is especially true for children with conservative parents who leave a foundation for their children’s worldview before allowing them to be exposed to the liberal insanity.

3
operatorstorm712 3 points ago +3 / -0

In many states, my own for example, it's going to be children who grew up in certain areas of the states -- most likely urban areas.

The CRT pushers managed to get their agenda pushed through -- but by the closest of votes (6-5), along political lines -- but they had to water the wording down enough that schools still do have some wiggle room so as to avoid it. This is where local political participation comes in. Locally, in my case, the school board candidates who were pro-CRT/pro-'inclusivity' got smacked down, hard, in the recent elections.

We'll see what happens in the fall.

This is the only way as even “republican” states won’t stop it. Parents need to pull their kids and educate them elsewhere or homeschool.

0
JohnnyThomas 0 points ago +1 / -1

This is not the solution, because that's not going to happen on a wide enough scale to matter.

That's going to leave a few kids un-brainwashed but so socially inept that they can never hope to influence other members of their generation (don't argue with me on this; I was homeschooled, I know homeschoolers, I know what it's like; the homeschool moms and mommy blogs that tell you that "the socially awkward homeschooler is a myth" are flat-out lying).

Meanwhile, the vast majority of the generation will continue to be brainwashed.

Conservative parents need to get off their asses and get involved with the school system to stamp this shit out. Until then, the collapse will continue.

2
Mrs.Frostbite 2 points ago +2 / -0

Gosh. My “socially Inept” homeschooled child had a graduation party and over 150 people showed up mostly kids! And she’s so brain washed she somehow was able to be involved in journalism and was editor of a state classical education publication, was involved in the local youth symphony, won an award and played a solo at the highschool and was vp of a club for the tri state region. She has also saved enough through work to pay her way through her future four yrs of college (by the way her supervisor at work just informed my husband and I we raised an amazing child). But I digress.

Being involved in the public school system is fine and locally we are trying but during this time I will not allow my children to be involved within the public education system. My children are my responsibility to educate and keep safe and sending to a public school now is not keeping them safe mentally or even sometimes physically And they definitely are not taught what any child should be taught.

Finally is public education worth saving? Read up on the history of public ed and where it began and why it was started. Not much has changed in over 100 yrs. Public ed is all about creating a workforce which takes commands but doesn’t ask questions. So I stand by my statement to remove our children from the indoctrination of public ed.

Oh great, another "that's just your experience" reply... As if my walls didn't have enough holes punched in them already.

That's great for you. That's great that you were able to be one of the vast minority of homeschool parents to do it right.

That's not the case for A LOT of homeschoolers. A lot of homeschool parents have neither the time nor energy nor resources to homeschool without their kids turning borderline autistic. The kids end up raising themselves and sometimes even each other; and guess what: they're not good at it. They go out into the world lost, with no direction, no instincts, nothing. Not only am I an example of this, but I've seen it in many, many, many, many other homeschool "graduates". And the fact that you homeschool parents refuse to acknowledge that, and even sometimes express pride in it, is absolutely infuriating.

And you're missing my bigger point. If you only focus on your kid while every other kid in America remains brainwashed, your kid will just be a lone dissident, easy to remove from the conversation. Most parents will absolutely take the easy route to educating their kids, both for the reasons I've mentioned above, and just because they don't see a need. Homeschool parents think it's okay to raise their kids to be islands. But we don't live in the times of "Little House on the Prairie" anymore. You can't just find your own, isolated patch of land and expect that everything is going to be okay because nobody's bothering you anymore. We live in a social world. And the left, the ones who understand that, are winning. A big enough wolf pack can kill a bear.

Conservatives need to stop running from the system and fucking fight it in a way that will actually make a difference.

Honestly you'd need to get rid of most of the teachers. They're brainwashed with this shit during their teaching degrees.

Even if you ban CRT it informs their entire way of thinking it'll just seep in to their other lessons.

1
RaberContour 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah, we need to eliminate the requirement for a four year degree to teach elementary school. It's pointless, as you don't need it to teach children. It can be done in two years or with vocational classes during high school.

We are just putting so many women into debt and brainwashing them. The debt also inhibits them from having kids which makes them even crazier.

2
Klown_Schwab 2 points ago +2 / -0

Based AND red pilled.

We should discourage women from going through the highschool -> university -> career pipeline imo,

Like get married to a slightly older man who's already got his career off the ground, say age 25~26, and have kids at age 22.

By the time the kids are 18 the mother will be 40. That's plenty of time to go to school and have a career. 4 year degree, graduate at 44. Work age 44-64 then retire.

But no modern society says women should go to school, work on muh career, sleep around, then get married and have kids in their late 30's.

This model is ruining relationships by enabling promiscuity, women having less kids and less healthy kids.

And never forget the role Mayor Pete's father played in this whole mess. Antonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks were one of, if not the, most important writings of the Marxist Frankfurt assholes. It was written in the 30s when Benito put him in prison. They were only translated into English in 1971, and soon after exploded through the universities. Who do you suppose did that translation?You guessed it, Mayor Pete's father.

Of course the family was later rewarded with Mayor Pete himself becoming a Rhodes scholarship recipient, and Cecil Rhodes was one of the original prick globalists, whose unparalleled fortune is still funding this totalitarian insanity.

Can you see how the leftists are playing the LONG game? This isn't an organic movement or some recent societal trend just because most people are just now waking up to it. It's the manifestation of decades worth of effort from a very motivated group of lunatics.
