Even if Joy Reid has yet to take up the challenge issued by Winsome Sears, the Virginia Lieutenant Gov.-elect recently made an appearance on CNN that caused quite the stir.
In part because Sears totally and completely walloped CRT, leaving CNN Host Dana Bash pretty much unable to reply to any of the numerous cogent remarks that Sears had to say.
Then again, what did Bash expect, after such an inflammatory opening?
“You oppose critical race theory being taught in schools, which I should say is not part of Virginia’s curriculum … You did say, though, that the good and the bad of American history should be taught, and we should also tell viewers that you’re the former vice president of the Virginia Board of Education …
Explain how you think race should be taught in Virginia public schools.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Ah, right. So, in other words, teaching “the good and the bad” apparently occurs by teaching students that whites are irredeemably racist and blacks are perpetually victims?
That’s the message that Bash thinks should be delivered in public schools? By the way, what a convenient coupling of CRT and “the good and the bad,” as if CRT isn’t all bad.
Fortunately, however, Sears came vastly more prepared than the typical Democrat, and she swiftly corrected Bash before continuing onward to outline a real plan for truly inclusive education.
“I beg to differ that CRT is not taught … It is part of the curriculum, it’s weaved in and out of the curriculum … In fact, in 2015, former governor who was just defeated, McAuliffe, his state Board of Education had information on how to teach it. So it’s weaved in.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Absolutely correct, and yet one of the many inconvenient facts for the Democrats.
Speaking of which, seems like 2015 was an awfully busy year, between the Clintons’ collusion on the Steele Dossier to apparently pushing CRT across public schools in America. Never mind the suspect “gain of function” research occurring in China at the same time.
The legacy of Obama keeps on giving …
Fortunately, Sears has a vastly different attitude towards the nation than Obama does, which is evident in how she would teach “the good and the bad” in American history.
“When we talk about the Tulsa race riots, let’s ask ourselves how did the black people amass so much wealth right after the Civil War, so that it could even be destroyed? How do they do that? You know, they were coming from nothing, from zero, some of them never even got the ’40 acres and a mule.’ Let’s try to emulate that.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Excellent embodiment of “the good and the bad,” not to mention an excellent lesson sorely needed by the Democrats … After all, they prefer to focus on exactly nothing favorable about American history, as that gives them all the more justification to attempt to destroy the nation now.
Sears also continued onward to detail other developments that occurred over American history, including the abolition of history and the expanded access to education.
“The one thing that the slaves wanted, well three top things, their freedom certainly, the next thing was they wanted to find their families, and the third thing was they wanted an education. And my God, when did education become a bad word among black people?” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Sadly, it became a bad word as soon as Democrats decided to aim for effective enslavement via entitlement programs, the inevitable conclusion of a deliberately, and terribly, designed school curriculum (greatly magnified by the addition of CRT).
Nonetheless, Sears vows to move forward with a truly inclusive educational system designed to uplift everyone and hold back no one.
“We are going to have a good education system. It’s going to represent all people. And I’m going to help see that through. Education lifted my father out of poverty when he came to America with only $1.75. Education lifted me because I have to find my own way in this world, and education will lift all of us.” [Source: Fox News]
Too bad Democrats aren’t into “lifting” anyone but themselves.
And they’re not afraid to cause total and complete chaos to do so.
Just consider the highly inflammatory op-ed from John Blake, published on the same CNN that Sears just skewered.
In sharp contrast to the specific details and grace demonstrated by Sears, Blake decided to launch a full on assault filled with generalities and rather extreme bias.
“This angry White man has been a major character throughout US history … He gave the country slavery, the slaughter of Native Americans, and Jim Crow laws. His anger also helped fuel the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol …
It’s this angry White man — not the Black or brown man you see approaching on the street at night — who poses the most dangerous threat to democracy in America.” [Source: Breitbart]
One would think that a violently biased media may indeed cause the most dangerous threat …
Especially considering its deliberate incitement of violence.
