A new coalition and the party of parents
"I mean, there are children coming home who feel traumatized by this. That's what parents are objecting to," Maher continued. "We're talking about kids who seem to be too young sometimes to fully appreciate all this. I think if they watched you, they wouldn't know a lot of those words,"

Bill Maher clashed with a black professor on Friday, arguing that it was "disingenuous" to dismiss parents' concerns over critical race theory. Maher hosted a panel discussion on the teaching of CRT. On the panel were Vanderbilt professor Michael Eric Dyson and Harvard professor Glenn Loury. I don't know about Loury, but Dyson is a white hating racist. None of the men disputed that CRT was being taught in Virginia schools. Maher wasn't just taking a stand for common decency, he was sounding the alarm bell for the democratic party. Shortly after the Virginia election MSNBC "news" anchors had a meltdown over the Virginia election, which was a major political upset enabled by Terry McAuliffe's view that parents had no say in what their children were being taught. Two days after the Virginia election, the aforementioned Dyson called Virginia's incoming black lieutenant governor Winsome Sears a "Black mouth of White supremacy." The "race lady" Joy Reid chimed in with "Republicans deploy ‘get out of racism’ card in VA."  Journalist Glenn Greenwald called the MSNBC segment "one of the most repugnant and racist segments broadcast" this year. Yesterday we also heard repugnant comments right here on NT. Sadly, those comments were allowed to stand.

There is however a reckoning for progressives. They have just smeared a whole segment of American society as "racists." That would be parents and the democrats recently won suburban women. The radical left may not know it yet but they have just given those swing voters back to the GOP. The Republican party is now the party of parents, and the party of blue collar workers and the party of small business and as the Virginia election numbers now show, the party of Hispanics as well. An exit poll from Virginia's election tells the tale:

static.foxnews.com/foxnews.com/content/uploads/2021/11/FNVA-Virginia_as-of-10pm-results.pdf

According to the poll, 54 percent of Hispanic voters backed Youngkin and 45 percent cast their ballots for McAuliffe — a nine percentage point difference for Virginia’s fastest-growing ethnic group.

Why is that? Probably because it is the Hispanic communities which bear the burden of illegal migration resettlement. Also there was post election analysis which pointed out that Youngkin’s focus on lowering taxes, improving schools, creating jobs, and reducing crime enabled him to “peel away a portion” of Latinos who have typically voted for Democrats.

Let us also consider all those that the radical left has cancelled, mocked, silenced, punished or wrongly investigated. Shall I call them the newly created reactionaries? 


We do not yet know how large the GOP tent has grown, but we do know that the Party of Lincoln has a new diverse coalition. Right now it may not be noticed because Republicans should be victorious in future elections simply because of Biden's disastrous policies. We can never get complacent. Republicans must deliver for their new constituents.

The Democratic Party will surely be more divided during the 2022 campaign than it has been this year. It will be at war with itself.

Let us give thanks.

Yes, they are going thru a lot of the same that the Republican Party when thru with the Tea Party and the chaos that ensued from the division. It seems like the division seems much larger in the Democrat party now however.  While the split between the hard-left progressives and the moderate Democrats is large, I think the true popcorn moment will come between the urban and the rural Democrat members.

If children come home traumatized from a lesson about the horrors of The Holocaust, will that be a good reason to stop teaching it?  Where is the "reality" line going to be drawn?  

Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it” is attributed to the American philosopher George Santayana and it can be accurately quoted as “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” as stated in his work, The Life of Reason: Reason in Common Sense.

To me there seems to be a contradiction between tearing down Confederate statues and teaching CRT.

The problem we have in America under the left isn't that slavery isn't/hasn't been taught, it's the lie the media is telling about what CRT actually teaches. CRT is avowedly a revolutionary doctrine. Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, who are proponents explained it in their book entitled "Critical Race Theory: An Introduction." In the book they assert that CRT questions the very foundations of the liberal order, including equality theory, legal reasoning, Enlightenment rationalism, and neutral principles of constitutional law.” They admit that CRT goes against rational thought. They admit that CRT teaches that whites are inherently racist. At the same time the dishonest American media is claiming that the argument is really about whether “schools should teach slavery.”

That's the new narrative and latest big lie from the media.

Lets not forget that one word which brought the fight to the surface....

DEPLORABLE!

It encapsulates in one word what they think of anyone that doesn't agree with them mindlessly.....

They have had two opportunities to place a marxist/progressive in the white house, Al Gore & Bernie Sanders.... (Hillary Clinton wasn't a  true socialist/progressive, she was just an opportunist willing to use them to her advantage)

And they exploded with hate when both failed.... Against Bush and the republicans and then against their adopted party...

Actually it is refreshing to see them coming out of the closet now into the open instead of remaining under the democrat skirt looking up...

CRT is not taught in k-12, marxism is not taught in k-12, socialism is not taught in k-12. 

To suggest otherwise is just lying. 

Many "conservatives" are suffering from CRTDS.

Many white parents dont want to hear that America is historically a racist country, yet there isnt the slightest bit of doubt that it has been.  The evidence is way past overwhelming. 

Why not everyone just admit it and we go on to better things for all? 

The country will turn majority "people of color" in the next few decades and in time the truth will become the accepted national narrative.  Why dont we make things right before then so we can say we made history right before it was forced on us by time and demographics?

Hillary Clinton said that about half of trump's base was deplorable. That always sounded about right , although "deplorable" has a range of shaded meanings.  One could argue that anyone who would vote for Trump was a tad deplorable, as he was , in 2016, a KNOWN pathological liar, crook, bigot, moron , and cheat.

The truth is already here. T eaching about slavery and segregation may be the least-contested element of the CRT debate. Recent polling indicates  that 74 percent of white Americans and 75 percent of black Americans “favor teaching students that the dispute over slavery was the principal cause of the Civil War.” More than four out of five Republicans and Democrats alike want social-studies texts to discuss that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves and the federal government’s mistreatment of Native Americans.



However lying about what CRT actually teaches and calling American parents "racist" is going to take the radical left out of power. And that's a good thing!

White parents dont mind slavery being mentioned in schools, they just dont want it emphasized that whites owned the slaves and that racism was the basis for Negro slavery. 

What about the 100 years between the end of the Civil War and the civil rights movement?  What are schools to teach about that? That entire span was a prolonged era of open and widespread racism and segregation and discrimination. 

The truth is you dont know anywhere near enough American history to suggest we have taught American history truthfully in schools.

No John, white parents don't want their children taught that they were born racist and black parents don't want their children taught that they are victims who can never succeed.


What about the 100 years between the end of the Civil War and the civil rights movement? 

We all know about it.


 What are schools to teach about that? 

Exactly what they've taught - that the hard fought promise of America had yet to be fully realized.


That entire span was a prolonged era of open and widespread racism and segregation and discrimination. 

The era after slavery was abolished was a long hard struggle in the south. America eventually got there and now is the most decent, generous nation on earth. How about teaching that?

Opinion | Is America a Racist Country?

Charles M. Blow 6-7 minutes   5/2/2021


Charles M. Blow

May 2, 2021

Last Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina added himself to the long list of Republicans who have denied the existence of systemic racism in this country.   Graham said on “Fox News Sunday”   that “our systems are not racist. America’s not a racist country.”

Graham argued that the country can’t be racist because both Barack Obama and Kamala Harris had been elected and somehow, their overcoming racial hurdles proves the absence of racial hurdles. His view seems to be that the exceptions somehow negated the rule.

In the rebuttal to President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress, the other senator from South Carolina, Tim Scott, the lone Black Republican in the Senate, parroted Graham and became an apologist for these denials of racism, saying too that the country wasn’t racist.   He argued that   people are “making money and gaining power by pretending we haven’t made any progress at all, by doubling down on the divisions we’ve worked so hard to heal.”

Scott’s argument seems to leave open the possibility that America may have   been   a racist country but that it has matured out of it, that it has graduated into egalitarianism.

I personally don’t make much of Scott’s ability to reason. This is the same man who said in March that “woke supremacy,” whatever that is,   “is as bad as white supremacy.”   There is no world in which recent efforts at enlightenment can be equated to enslavement, lynching and mass incarceration. None.

It seems to me that the disingenuousness on the question of racism is largely a question of language. The question turns on another question: “What, to you, is America?” Is America the people who now inhabit the land, divorced from its systems and its history? Or, is the meaning of America inclusive of those systems and history?

  • Did you know you can share 10 gift articles a month, even with nonsubscribers?

Share this article.

When people say that America is a racist country, they don’t necessarily mean that all or even most Americans are consciously racist. However, it is important to remember that nearly half the country just voted for a full-on racist in Donald Trump, and they did so by either denying his racism, becoming apologists for it, or applauding it. What do you call a country thus composed?

Historically, however, there is no question that the country was founded by racists and white supremacists, and that much of the early wealth of this country was built on the backs of enslaved Africans, and much of the early expansion came at the expense of the massacre of the land’s Indigenous people and broken treaties with them.

Eight of the first 10 presidents personally   enslaved Africans . In 1856, the chief justice of the United States wrote in   the infamous ruling   on the Dred Scott case that Black people “had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”

The country went on to fight a Civil War over whether some states could maintain slavery as they wished. Even some of the people arguing for, and fighting for, an end to slavery had expressed their white supremacist beliefs.

Abraham Lincoln said during his famous debates against Stephen A. Douglas in 1858 that   among white people and Black ones   “there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of the superior position being assigned to the white man.”

Some will concede the historical point and insist on the progress point, arguing that was then and this is now, that racism simply doesn’t exist now as it did then. I would agree. American racism has evolved and become less blunt, but it has not become less effective. The knife has simply been sharpened. Now systems do the work that once required the overt actions of masses of individual racists.

So, what does it mean for a system to be racist? Does the appellation depend on the system in question being openly, explicitly racist from top to bottom, or simply that there is some degree of measurable bias embedded in those systems? I assert the latter.

America is not the same country it was, but neither is it the country it purports to be. On some level this is a tension between American idealism and American realism, between an aspiration and a current condition.

And the precise way we phrase the statement makes all the difference: America’s systems — like its criminal justice, education and medical systems — have a pro-white/anti-Black bias, and an extraordinary portion of America denies or defends those biases.

As Mark Twain once put it: “The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’Tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”

Being imprecise or undecided with our language on this subject contributes to the murkiness — and to the myth that the question of whether America is racist is difficult to answer and therefore the subject of genuine debate among honest intellectuals.

Saying that America is racist is not a radical statement. If that requires a longer explanation or definition, so be it. The fact, in the end, is not altered.

After a few decades of discussing nothing but "race", the verdict is finally in: America is not racist country. It is the most benevolent  country on earth. One that allows haters like Charles Blows to make outrageous claims and scum like Al Sharpton to prosper after staging hoax after hoax and even letting people right here on NT call the country the most vile names. A racist country would never stand for that, nor would it fight a bloody Civil war to end slavery or elect a black man president twice.

Oh ya, that would include offering opportunities to foreign born minorities!

Total nonsense. One could easily both be a racist and believe human beings should not own one another. 

As far as electing a black man twice - it proves nothing. 

I think America has largely moved past racism in terms of overt acceptance of prejudice and bigotry that existed for much , if not all of the nations history up until the past few decades, but there are still tens of millions of white racists in America. Does that make America a "racist country" today? It is a matter of opinion.

We all know that answer. Your understanding of racism in America is woefully one sided and totally inadequate.

IMO racism IS "inherently racist". I think it is beyond doubt that racism is INHERITED, i.e LEARNED behaviour from others, such as from parents.  It is NOT a natural instinct, and it has been proven to be true.  Children who are not taught or who have not learned from others to fear or hate those of a different colour are at most only curious about it when encountering it, if they even think of the difference at all.

We can never get complacent. Republicans must deliver for their new constituents.

Could someone please tattoo this on every last Republicans forehead at the federal level. They are not Democrats. No one is electing them just because they are not Democrats. Get a damn plan in place. Show the voting public that there will be structure and order after midterms when the Democrat chaos is voted out of office. It is not like there isn't a horde of crisis to choose from.

  • Start with the border and immigration. Border security comes first; and that means getting a plan in place to secure it and getting the border patrol back to doing their jobs of enforcing it; and stopping the real criminals the coyotes, drug runners, and Cartels from entering the US.  
  • Second go with the pandemic. We have an administration that doesn't listen to the courts; so that leaves you to rein them back in. Rules are in place that make it harder to enter this country by legal means; than by simply crossing our southern border. Entering legally means everyone must show proof of being fully vaccinated; and a negative Covid test 3 days before coming. There is no reason these same rules shouldn't apply to anyone trying to enter illegally. I don't really care if Biden vetoes every last damn bill you pass regarding immigration; the point here is to prove to the US voter that you are working hard for them- and show that Democrats cannot be trusted in positions of power. 
  • Third, there are still US citizens, Green Card holders, and special VISA holders trapped in Afghanistan. Since the administration has forgotten about them "turned the page"; it is up to you to fold their feet to the fire and find out how many people are left, where they are located, and apply pressure to the Taliban to allow them all out. Also, since rescue has turn into a private organizations affair; find out what they need in order to make their lives easier. No more red tape from the Biden administration; that didn't care about who they evacuated when they controlled the air port- no vetting needed. But now the administration is forcing all evacuees to stay in third party countries for weeks while they go over documentation that was supplied by these organizations before the planes departed Afghanistan.
  • School choice needs to be a national option; not just whatever the state decides. Federal tax payer dollars should not be siphoned off to Democrat indoctrination center public schools that don't care about parents or children. 
  • Present an economic option to the tax and spend Democrats. Help out businesses that have been crippled by the pandemic; and force people back to work! This endless give away to keep people on the sidelines is hurting not just the economy, but also taxes, the debt, and inflation.
  • Fight the administration over it's crippling energy plan. Show that there is an alternative to "Get used to doing with less".

Clock is ticking to midterms; but I don't get any sense of urgency from the GOP.

Rules are in place that make it harder to enter this country by legal means; than by simply crossing our southern border. Entering legally means everyone must show proof of being fully vaccinated; and a negative Covid test 3 days before coming. There is no reason these same rules shouldn't apply to anyone trying to enter illegally. I don't really care if Biden vetoes every last damn bill you pass regarding immigration; the point here is to prove to the US voter that you are working hard for them- and show that Democrats cannot be trusted in positions of power. 
  • Third, there are still US citizens, Green Card holders, and special VISA holders trapped in Afghanistan. Since the administration has forgotten about them "turned the page"; it is up to you to fold their feet to the fire and find out how many people are left, where they are located, and apply pressure to the Taliban to allow them all out. Also, since rescue has turn into a private organizations affair; find out what they need in order to make their lives easier. No more red tape from the Biden administration; that didn't care about who they evacuated when they controlled the air port- no vetting needed. But now the administration is forcing all evacuees to stay in third party countries for weeks while they go over documentation that was supplied by these organizations before the planes departed Afghanistan.
  • School choice needs to be a national option; not just whatever the state decides. Federal tax payer dollars should not be siphoned off to Democrat indoctrination center public schools that don't care about parents or children. 
  • Present an economic option to the tax and spend Democrats. Help out businesses that have been crippled by the pandemic; and force people back to work! This endless give away to keep people on the sidelines is hurting not just the economy, but also taxes, the debt, and inflation.
  • Fight the administration over it's crippling energy plan. Show that there is an alternative to "Get used to doing with less".

Clock is ticking to midterms; but I don't get any sense of urgency from the GOP.

"The problem we have in America under the left isn't that slavery isn't/hasn't been taught, it's the lie the media is telling about what CRT actually teaches. CRT is avowedly a revolutionary doctrine. Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, who are proponents explained it in their book entitled "Critical Race Theory: An Introduction." In the book they assert that CRT questions the very foundations of the liberal order, including equality theory, legal reasoning, Enlightenment rationalism, and neutral principles of constitutional law.” They admit that CRT goes against rational thought. They admit that CRT teaches that whites are inherently racist. At the same time the dishonest American media is claiming that the argument is really about whether “schools should teach slavery.”

That's the new narrative and latest big lie from the media."

CRT IS NOT BEING TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS K-12.  SO THIS IS ALL UNTRUE.

 Indoctrination happens in the absence of thinking, many teachers who engage in indoctrination do so unconsciously. They themselves take what they’re given and pass it along without thinking. Ideologues write the scripts/textbooks for teachers, which is how LGBT advocacy and CRT become included in lessons.

I already knew of Weingarten's stand, but I listened to it anyway. I'm a bit surprised at your defense of her and her all powerful union that did so much damage to NYC education:

"Reacting on July 7, 2009, to Weingarten's statement, upon taking control of the AFT, that New York City is "the best laboratory in the world for trying new things," the  conservative editorial board  of  The Wall Street Journal  asserted this could be true "if it weren't for Ms. Weingarten's union," and wrote that the UFT under her direction had done everything possible "to block significant reforms to New York's public schools."




We all know what she did to working families during the pandemic:

"The president for the American Federation of Teachers took to Twitter Friday evening to announce that over 100 percent of mothers with young children left their jobs amid the  coronavirus pandemic  to handle childcare responsibilities at home – then received a storm of criticism.

"115% of mothers with young children left their jobs in 2020 because of childcare responsibilities," Randi Weingarten said.
Those "childcare responsibilities" included being forced to stay home and watch their children when the pandemic shuttered school around the country – a move backed by Weingarten and other teachers unions.

"If you care about reversing this trend you care about accelerating reopening," quipped user Nick Pappas. "In other words, you aren’t Randi Weingarten."

"How can you possibly post this article in good conscience w/o also acknowledging the role of closed schools?" asjed Twitter user Carolyn Cohen.

Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, a professor at the New School in New York City, pointed out that open schools play a crucial role in childcare for working women.

"Childcare crisis = inextricable from school closure crisis," she argued.

The sharp increase in the number of women who left their careers could mean female economic equality has been set back by an entire generation, reported Mother Jones Friday.

But President Biden’s latest spending bill, the American Jobs Plan -- deemed an infrastructure bill by Democrats, but considered a bloated package by conservatives – also directs funding to address women’s inequality in the workplace.

A new concept known as "caregiving infrastructure," has been allotted in the $2 trillion spending bill, and addresses care needed for older and disabled persons. 

In addition, the administration is expected to introduce a separate package for childcare – a federal spending concept that could change how women are able to balance raising a family and their careers.

But even as the White House attempts to push initiatives to help women get back into the workforce, school closures and hybrid programs will continue to take their toll on female employment. 

Teachers unions across the nation have used the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity to vie for increased benefits and financial gains for their members. 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced in February that it was not necessary for teachers to be fully vaccinated to safely return to the classroom, but schools remained shut to in-person teaching."





Do I believe a word she says?    NO!

The union, which represents 3 million public school employees, approved funding for three separate items related to this issue: “increasing the implementation” of “critical race theory” in K-12 curricula, promoting critical race theory in local school districts, and attacking opponents of critical race theory, including parent organizations and conservative research centers.

And we haven't mentioned the insanity that is occurring in CA.
Tuesday, March 23, 2021

The California Department of Education (CDE) voted to adopt the fourth version of an ethnic studies curriculum after four years, three previous versions, and more than 100,000 objections. The reason for so many objections? The curriculum continues to be founded on critical race theory (CRT), which is the view that our legal, economic, and social institutions are inherently racist and are exploited by some Whites to retain their dominance by oppressing and marginalizing others. The CRT-focused curriculum will foster divisions among students and will almost certainly not improve learning outcomes, as advertised by its proponents.

They are ideologues and they can't help themselves. Just like with what they did with that BBB bill. They are going to lose bigtime whether or not they can pass that rotten monstrosity. They just want this country transformed and now they will do whatever they can before they get tossed out.

That is correct. What we see here on NT is not simply democrats. There are a number of very hard core progressives. Do you remember China indicting the "Gang of Four?" Well, it seems that there may be another version of that. I believe there is a gang of 8 and yesterday I think a gang of 1 was christened.

I've proven it, it's state law in the State of Washington... All levels of state controlled education have to have CRT theory as it basis... I've posted one school districts plan of implementation as well...

The only people arguing against it, claiming there's no proof or excusing it are doing it from from their own political bias...

All your exclamations of falsity only serves to reveal your biases... But then  we know your biases Tessy...
