CNN: 'Panic' over Critical Race Theory Because White People 'Afraid' They're Racist

'News' network claims opposition due to being 'afraid they might be complicit in racism'

Critical Race Theory (CRT) has caused nationwide "panic" because white people are “afraid that they might be complicit in racism,” according to CNN.

The far-left "news" network reported Tuesday that people oppose the Marxism-based CRT out of fear they will be “blamed for their ancestors’ crimes.”

CNN has been defending CRT for nearly a decade now.

The Democratic Party mouthpiece has promoted CRT ever since Andrew Breitbart brought it to national attention.

Then as now, CNN portrayed opposition to the theory as the product of white people’s irrational fears, rather than reasoned objection.

And despite opposition to the curriculum being taught in schools coming from parents of all races, CNN falsely suggests that pushback is all down to "racist" white people.

In a story and video by New York-based correspondent Elle Reeve, and video producers Deborah Brunswick and Samantha Guff, CNN claims, without evidence, that conservatives use “Critical Race Theory” to mean “any instruction about the role of race in America, past or present.”

That is what Democrats claim conservatives want, usually as a straw man to deflect criticism, accoridng to Breitbart.

But what conservatives really object to is far more specific — as the story inadvertently reveals.

CNN interviews public high school teacher Keziah Ridgeway, who says that “race and racism are literally the building blocks of this country.”

That is what conservatives oppose, pointing instead to the principles of liberty and equality in America’s founding documents.

Conservatives also oppose the idea that America is beset by “systemic racism,” which suggests the country’s institutions remain racist even after the civil rights era, the Civil War, and generations of change.

In interviews dripping with condescension, Reeve continues CNN’s tradition of targeting ordinary people for humiliation when their views conflict with the left.

At one point, Reeve challenges a parent named Elana Fishbein, who appears to be Jewish and an immigrant, and who says she fears for her children.

Reeve asks scornfully: “Were your children beat up by Antifa kids?”

Reeve does not mention recent antisemitic attacks, including several during Black Lives Matter protests.

Throughout, CNN refers to parents by race, as if to discredit them: “A White man in a suit said…”. (The three CNN staff involved appear to be of pale complexion.)

Reeve also argues with the people she interviews — claiming, for example, that the Constitution’s Three-fifths Compromise is evidence of racism (rather than a way to limit the power of the slave states) and that the 1994 crime bill treated crack differently from cocaine because of race (rather than fear of its potency).

The story claims that Critical Race Theory is feared because it puts “white people in danger of being blamed for their ancestors’ crimes.”

No “crimes” are specified, however.

It also declares that Critical Race Theory is resented because “it could bring attention to the ways that white people today continue to benefit from racism,” as if that is an accepted fact.

The story concludes by predicting that new laws banning Critical Race Theory in some states will eventually be repealed.

The video version of the story aired on Erin Burnett Out Front.
