House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Tuesday chastised Democratic members for relentlessly hailing the controversial academic movement—Critical Race Theory (CRT)—that takes root from Marxist ideologies.
“Democrats are desperate to pretend their party has progressed from their days of supporting slavery, pushing Jim Crow laws, and supporting the KKK,” tweeted McCarthy on June 29.
“But today, the Dem. Party has simply replaced the racism of the Klan with the racism of Critical Race Theory,” he added.
McCarthy’s post embedded a video of him speaking in front of Congress over a House bill passed this Tuesday, June 29, after a vote of 285-120.
H.R. 3005 will require Confederate-related statues in the Capitol statewide to either be removed or replaced for their “slavery” sensitivity. All the present Democratic members voted in favor of the legislation.
Among those who supported the bill, McCarthy was disbelieving of the Dems’ interest in solving racism, citing their ardent inclination to segregative ideologies.
“The Democratic Party has doubled down on what I consider this shameful history by replacing the racism of the past with the racism of the critical race theory,” he said in the video.
CRT aims to teach students concepts of races, diversities, identities, and histories to raise a future generation of more equity awareness. But, unfortunately, it is promoted by most liberal minds who believe that the United States is racially corrupted.
But those who understand Marxism recognize it as an educational plan to counter racism that will ensure more discrimination.
When CRT was being formulated during the 1990s, it was based on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism.
Reiterating the leftists’ historical openness to racist philosophies, McCarthy stressed their zealous attempt to reduce discrimination in the United States via CRT would ultimately result in a more hateful future community.
“Just a few years ago, then Vice President Joe Biden praised Democrat senator Robert Byrd. He was the Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan. In his eulogy for Byrd, he said, ‘For a lot of us, he was a friend, a mentor, and a guide,’” said McCarthy.
“Another leading Democrat who praised Byrd at the time was Speaker Pelosi. She called Byrd a friend, a great person, and a great American patriot.”
Judging that adopting CRT will “continue to fuel hatred and division across the country,” the congressman stated, “America must reject Critical Race Theory for this simple reason—state-sponsored racism is wrong, and always will be. It was wrong when it was segregated lunch counters of Jim Crow, and it was wrong when it was segregated classrooms of Critical Race Theory.”
