Anyone paying attention to media other than CNN and MSNBC is likely concerned about the direction in which things are headed. A survivor of Mao's deadly regime had a message for a local school board that reinforced fears of a communist takeover in the U.S.
With just 60 seconds allotted to her, the Chinese woman eviscerated the critical race theory curriculum being lauded by school board members in Loudon County, Virginia. She warned that the current cultural climate is becoming more and more similar to the one she escaped in China.
The Chinese Communist Party tried to erase the nation's past by changing school names and removing statues and other remnants of the country's heritage. The party also sowed division in the populace by pitting members of different classes against each other. Sound familiar yet?
The woman lambasted board members for suppressing free speech and pushing an agenda rooted in cultural Marxism. She warned that the assault on our liberty and national traditions by the Left is our own version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools. You are now training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history. Growing up in Mao’s China, all of this seems very familiar. The Communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people; the only difference is they used class instead of race.”
“During the Cultural Revolution, I witnessed students and teachers turn against each other. We changed school names to be politically correct. We were taught to denounce our heritage. The Red Guards destroyed anything that is not Communist: old statues, books, and anything else.”
She pointed out that in China during the Cultural Revolution, students were also encouraged to report on each other: “We were also encouraged to report on each other, just like the Student Equity Ambassador program and the Bias Reporting System.”
She concluded, “This is, indeed, the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The Critical Race Theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our schools.”
