“This is the Tea Party to the 10th power,” Steve Bannon, Trump’s former adviser who has zeroed in on local school board fights over critical race theory, said in an interview. “This isn’t Q, this is mainstream suburban moms — and a lot of these people aren’t Trump voters.”

Concerns about critical race theory, which examines how race and racism permeates society, have been percolating for months in what activists describe as a sincere grassroots phenomenon led by parents. Critical race theory dates back to the 1970s, but as the country remains in a prolonged conversation about race following George Floyd’s death, a new political battle over how to teach American history has emerged.

It has increasingly become a major focus of the Republican establishment, which has sought to capitalize on the angst even as some officeholders have failed to define what critical race theory is and the threat it poses. (Critical race theory, for example, does not imply white students should feel guilty about past civil rights issues and is not taught in many of the schools where lawmakers are seeking to ban it).

Their efforts to elevate the issue have worked.

Google searches for “critical race theory” skyrocketed on March 18, for example, the same day that Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis proposed banning it from Florida’s school curriculum. Fox News mentioned critical race theory nearly 1,300 times over a three-and-a-half-month span, according to an analysis done by the liberal watchdog Media Matters for America. Last week, Texas became the fifth state that passed a law taking aim at critical race theory or similar topics, and legislation has been proposed in more than a dozen other states.

Democrats, liberal political analysts, and even celebrities have used the power of the Black press and broadcast news to push back.

Becky Pringle, president of the National Education Association and a friend to the Biden White House, supported a thorough teaching of American history — including the more painful parts — in an NBC interview last week. “We have made many mistakes in this country, but our kids, our kids deserve to learn all of that truth,” she said.

Journalist and author Ta-Nehisi Coates and Hollywood actress and LGBTQ activist Lena Waithe, along with dozens of academics and writers, are also backing efforts to support teaching students about systemic racism. They penned an open letter in The Root in support of Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of the New York Times Magazine’s 1619 project, which many Republicans see as a key tool for pushing critical race theory.

They are combating the decision of major Trump World and other national Republican figures who are increasingly entering the fray. Earlier this month, Republicans at the North Carolina GOP’s annual convention jumped to their feet with enthusiastic applause when Trump called for a ban on critical race theory from the local school level to the federal government. Some top Republicans aren’t coy when they talk about the electoral benefits that stoking such a culture war issue could provide.

“I look at this and say, ‘Hey, this is how we are going to win.’ I see 50 [House Republican] seats in 2022. Keep this up,” Bannon said. “I think you’re going to see a lot more emphasis from Trump on it and DeSantis and others. People who are serious in 2024 and beyond are going to focus on it.”

Jessica Anderson, executive director of the Heritage Foundation’s advocacy arm, said critical race theory is one of the top two issues her group is working on alongside efforts to tighten voting laws. A former Office of Management and Budget official in the Trump administration, Anderson’s Heritage Action for America put out a pamphlet on Monday calling critical race theory a “destructive” ideology and urging voters to call on their lawmakers to support anti-critical race theory bills introduced by Reps. Chip Roy (R-Texas) and Dan Bishop (R-N.C.). It also urges voters to use Freedom of Information Act requests as a tactic to identify critical race theory-tied elements in schools’ curricula.

“It could turn out to be one of the most important conservative grassroots fights since the Tea Party movement,” she said.

In addition to Heritage Action, a new group called Citizens for Renewing America, an outfit started by Russ Vought, Trump’s former Office of Management and Budget director, has rushed in to bolster anti-critical race theory efforts.

As OMB director, Vought drafted a September memo warning federal agencies that Trump wanted them to “cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions.” More recently, Citizens for Renewing America has circulated a 33-page document titled “An A to Z Guide on How to Stop Critical Race Theory and Reclaim Your Local School Board.”

In Washington, Heritage Action is pursuing a long shot strategy to try to shoehorn anti-critical race theory language into must-pass legislation such as the annual defense spending bill. Vought’s group, meanwhile, is pushing for Republicans to force the provisions in Bishop’s bill to be included in legislation to raise the debt limit this fall.

“We believe it’s necessary for us to find leverage points to get that onto bills that must pass,” Vought said in an interview.

NYC Candidate Sliwa: Beware the ‘Slow Creep of CRT’ into New York’s Public Schools

Published

New York City Mayoral Candidate Curtis Sliwa sounded the alarm on Critical Race Theory this week; saying the toxic ideology has no place in New York City’s school system.

“I got three sons in public schools, all of whom should have been redshirted – as all children should have been redshirted because we stole an academic year from them in which they spent half the time playing Fortnite and Roblox instead of listening to instruction – if they even had a laptop,” he told Fox News Wednesday. “Instead of doing that and leaving everyone back and allowing them to progress academically, we’re talking about the problem [of] systemic racism.”

“Let’s face it. If the kid can’t read, if the child can’t write, if the child can’t function in a classroom atmosphere, how can [educators] anticipate creating a culturally diverse curriculum that is going to address that problem?” he said. “So it’s back to the basics. It’s what I was raised with. It’s what most Americans were raised with. It worked for our generations. Why are we changing it for this new generation, and in fact, handicapping them?”

“The problem in the classrooms of our public school system is not any bias that teachers have. It’s not systemic racism that is causing the classrooms to be unmanageable with young people who are not only truant but disruptive in the classroom,” he said. “It’s the children and the young adults who need sessions in behavioral management and how to behave in school because clearly, they’re not getting that at home.”

“That means we’re not focusing on reading, writing, arithmetic, and the most important is teaching our children respect to the administrators, safety officers and the other school personnel,” he said. “That’s where the problem is. And everybody wants to avoid it.”

SLIWA BLASTS DE BLASIO: ‘You’re a Police Hater! There is No Doubt About It!’

posted by Hannity Staff – 7.01.21

Guardian Angels founder and Republican candidate for Mayor of New York City Curtis Sliwa ripped Bill de Blasio in downtown Manhattan Thursday; saying the current leader of the nation’s biggest metropolis is a “police hater.”

“You now have almost a billion-dollar budget — more than most countries — and you still won’t re-fund the police!” Sliwa said.

“Which means you’re a police hater! There is no doubt about it.”

“The reality is we need more police, we need to hire more police. We need to take the handcuffs off the police and put it on the criminals.”

“We had a lot of different needs to bring the city back. We had to focus on jobs. We had to focus on schools … I think we really struck a balance,” said de Blasio at a press conference when asked about the funding.

SLIWA on HANNITY: AOC is ‘All Out Crazy’, Nothing But a ‘Sanctimonious Hypocrite’ on Public Safety

posted by Hannity Staff – 6.29.21

New York Mayoral Candidate Curtis Sliwa ripped the city’s Democratic leadership on ‘Hannity’ Monday night where he slammed AOC, a.k.a All Out Crazy, for having armed security guards while denying public safety to average people.

“You have dedicated decades of your life to fighting crime… This city now, New Yorkers want to be safe, but are there enough of them?” asked Hannity.

“You’re right. AOC – All Out Crazy- who has armed security officers with her at all times. Just like the rest of her Democrat Socialists of America and Social Justice Warriors, who are all sanctimonious hypocrites. They deny public safety to average people by putting handcuffs on the police instead of the criminals!” said Sliwa.

“I never surrender. I never retreat. Last summer, when the looters took over the city streets, I was out there battling them with the Guardian Angels,” he added.

OMAR ERUPTS AGAIN: Ilhan Omar Blames Border Crisis on ‘White Nationalism’

posted by Hannity Staff – 3.29.19

Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar weighed-in on the country’s escalating border crisis this week; baselessly blaming the migrant caravan’s arrival in El Paso on “white nationalism.”

“This is abhorrent and inhumane. It’s without a doubt a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country. As a country, we have to acknowledge that this is how people are being treated here and decide that we are better and we must do better,” tweeted Omar.

The embattled legislator made national headlines weeks ago when she accused American politicians of supporting Israel due to secret campaign donations and a “dual loyalty” to the Jewish State.

OMAR ERUPTS AGAIN: Ilhan Omar Claims Israel Denying ‘Freedom’ to Millions, Mocks Their ‘Democracy’

posted by Hannity Staff – 8.20.19

Embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar continued to escalate her fiery rhetoric against Israel this week; saying their government is denying “freedom” to millions of Palestinians while mocking the Jewish State’s “Democracy.”

“We in the United States have a constructive role to play. We give Israel more than $3 billion in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East,” mocked Omar.

“We must be asking, as Israel’s ally, the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land and ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid,” she added.

Omar posted a massive, anti-Israeli tirade on social media Friday, just hours after she was denied entry into the Jewish State for her outspoken support of multiple boycott initiatives.

“Let’s be clear: the goal of our trip was to witness firsthand what is happening on the ground in Palestine and hear from stakeholders —our job as Members of Congress. But since we were unable to fulfill our role as legislators, I am sharing what we would have seen,” she posted on Twitter. “First, I planned to hold meetings with members of the Knesset (both Jewish and Arab) along with Israeli security officials.”

“The humanitarian crisis in Gaza is one of the worst in the world—with 97% of water unfit for human consumption and on the verge of collapse. Most of the people in Gaza are children,” she added. “77% of shops have closed bc of military occupation. Palestinians walk with garbage nets above their heads, put up to catch trash thrown by settlers. Violent attacks on Palestinians are routine.”

WATCH: Biden Mistakes Donald Trump for Barack Obama, Dismisses Moment as ‘Freudian Slip’

Published

President Joe Biden confused his former Boss with the former President during a speaking event Wednesday; stating he was in charge of the Great Recession under Donald Trump before correcting himself moments later.

“Back in 2009, during the Great Recession, the President asked me to be in charge of managing that, then President Trump. Excuse me, Freudian slip, that was the last President, he caused, anyway, that was President Obama, when I was Vice President,” bumbled Biden.

 

The President’s behavior in recent weeks has raised new questions over his fitness for office.

Biden snapped at reporters from the Oval Office Monday alongside the Iraqi Prime Minister; calling one members of the press pool a “pain in the neck.”

“Mr. President, Veterans Affairs is going to have a mandate for its healthcare…” started the reporter.

“You are such a pain in the neck!” exclaimed Biden. “That has nothing to do with Iraq.”

“I take that as a compliment,” fired-back the journalist.

“I’ll answer your question. Yes, Veterans Affairs is going to require that workers have to be vaccinated,” confirmed the President.

His comments come hours after he launched into a bizarre speech where he seemingly forgot the name of a member of Congress then asked about the location of a guest’s mother.

“Congressman Scott, Congressman, … where is he? There you are… You understand this better than anybody does. I want to thank you Congressman for all your work,” said Biden.

“I want to thank you all for being here… By the way, where’s mom? Is she here? She’s watching, oh okay. I thought they looked and said mom was out there. I was going to ask her to stand up. But mom, you can’t stand up if you’re home,” added the President.

Watch the President’s comment above.

AXELROD ON BIDEN: ‘He Either Can Cut It, Or He Can’t’

posted by Hannity Staff – 8.15.19

Democratic strategist David Axelrod weighed-in Thursday on Joe Biden’s potentially reduced campaign schedule; saying “this is bad advice” and claiming the former Vice President can “either cut it or he can’t.”

“This is bad advice. You can’t cloister the candidate and win. He either can cut it or he can’t, and the only way he can prove he can is to be an active and vigorous candidate. He’s running for president of the United States, for God’s sake!” posted Axelrod on social media.

Allies and political insiders close to Joe Biden are reportedly telling the former Vice President to scale back his campaign stops and speaking events; hoping the reduced schedule will minimize future speaking gaffes.

“Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president’s schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days,” reports The Hill

. “The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.”

“He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also has to pace himself,” said one insider.

“I think you’ll see the same schedule and maybe even more Joe Biden,” one ally said. “Everyone wants to see Joe Biden be Joe Biden. If he’s held back in any way, that’s almost the antithesis of who he is.”

“I think it’s the wrong approach,” they added.

“Joe Biden has spoken his mind his entire life, which voters know and love about him,” said Biden’s deputy campaign manager. “He’s a real person, he’s authentic, and that will never change. He’s going to keep taking on Trump and making the case to voters about the stakes we face in this election, regardless of how the press chooses to cover him.”

President Trump routinely refers to Biden as “sleepy Joe.”

60% of the POPULATION? Biden Says ‘200 Million People’ Have Died in the US from CoVID

posted by Hannity Staff – 9.21.20

Former Vice President Joe Biden continued to baffle millions of Americans Sunday when discussing the Coronavirus pandemic in the country; falsely asserting “200 million people” have died in the USA from CoVID-19.

“It’s estimated that 200 million people will die, probably by the time I finish this talk,” said Biden.

Nearly one million people have died from CoVID-19 around the world since the outbreak began earlier this year; including 200,000 in the United States.
