Lemon: GOP Opposing Critical Race Theory Is Whitewashing Racism from America’s Past
CNN anchor pushes CRT during broadcast
CNN anchor Don Lemon accused Republicans of “trying to whitewash racism” by blocking children from being taught Critical Race Theory (CRT).
Lemon claimed Donald Trump "spawned deadly violence at the Capitol" before claiming Republicans were trying to "whitewash it like they are, still, trying to whitewash racism in America’s past."
"Trying to block teaching America’s school kids about the history of racism in this country and the impact on our country."
"Railing against it, calling it anti-American.”
Trump said in a video:
“The Biden administration has, also, issued regulations to indoctrinate America’s schoolchildren with poisonous and divisive left-wing doctrines such as critical race theory and the exact opposite of the American belief that we all are created equal in the holy image of God.”
Trump also said earlier:
“Republicans at every level should move to immediately ban critical race theory in schools, and we should ban it in workplaces, we should ban it in our states, and we should ban in the federal government.
"And it should be done immediately."
“Let’s just be clear about this, critical race theory, that term, right?"
"That is the new boogieman for the right. There’s always got to be a boogieman."
"First, it was, um, ACORN, remember that, for a while? Acorn.
"Then it was The New Black Panthers, The New Black Panthers," Lemon said.
"And then, it was, oh, Antifa, Antifa, Antifa.
"It’s always some boogieman, whether it’s Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, whatever it’s got to be a boogieman."
"So now, critical race theory is the new boogieman."
"Don’t fall for the okey-doke.
"It is so transparent, but people do fall for it, as we know since there was an insurrection on Capitol Hill from people who were co-opted by the big lie."
"So, now, critical race theory is the big lie.”
Earleir this week, Neon Nettle reported 58 percent of Americans have an “unfavorable” view of Critical Race Theory (CRT), according to a section of a YouGov poll sponsored by The Economist.
The survey found just 38 percent of Americans view CRT favorably.
CRT embraces Marxist ideology with the concept that all social and cultural issues should be viewed through the lens of race.
