Despite heavy media criticism, North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson continues his fight against Critical Race Theory (CRT) and indoctrination.
In a video released by Fox News, conservative Republican Robinson explains his experience with CRT and how he opposes and fights against the indoctrination of students within his state.
He began by telling how his daughter suffered a lot of indoctrination at the high school she attended in Guilford County. Finally, after several confrontations with teachers, he had to “put my foot down, and let them know that we weren’t going to stand for my daughter being discriminated against because of her political and religious beliefs.”
The conservative knows that this is not something new and has been going on for decades but that they only became aware of it when they began to look for the origin of this indoctrination.
For Robinson, the CRT came about during the debate over the indoctrination of students, and they began to investigate where the anti-American sentiment in the curricula originates.
The lieutenant governor also recounted that when he first became involved in politics and during the campaign that brought him to his current position, many parents approached him concerned about this trend occurring in schools. However, he assures that “Those folks that say this is a conspiracy-driven issue, they are not living in reality.”
He also explained that the consequences of CRT were enormous as it led to teachers quitting teaching and many parents decided to pull their children out of public education to safeguard them.
“If public education is not working for your child, you don’t have a choice, you have to pull your child out and put your child in a place where they’re going to get an education that’s going to help them be successful in life, and that’s what we’re seeing across the board,” he added.
He said parents must know who represents them on the school board. “That is absolutely essential.”
The Republican thinks the criticism is because they don’t want to acknowledge the concern among parents on the issue. But, he said, “It’s one of these issues where people look at me, and they see a conservative, and they see what many of them would call a far right-wing conservative nutcase, and they refuse to acknowledge. They refuse to acknowledge the complaints of hundreds of thousands of parents across the state, millions across this nation.”
At the same time, he expressed his thoughts on the media.
“Let’s just be honest about it, there are many, many news agencies out there that are not fair and balanced,” and he asks not to pay attention to these detractors.
On the other hand, he clarified that most teachers and administrators are not to blame. He is not looking to demonize them but is doing this because many people in North Carolina are calling for something to be done about it.
In conclusion, he said that this is not an episode of a show that lasts an hour and the good guys win, but that “It’s going to be a long and bitter struggle.”
