Schools or Indoctrination Centers? The Answer Should be Obvious

by Al Benson Jr.

As time goes on we are learning more and more about how public schools are pushing this Marxist oriented Critical Race Theory garbage. And I call it garbage because that is what it is The agenda for this is to cause hate and division between the races so they will never be able to come together and realize who their real enemies are and what those enemies are doing to all races.

The fact that those enemies are able to use the public schools in this country to promote their leftist propaganda should show people who really controls the public schools in this country. And I am not going to advocate that we get in there and fight to take “our” public schools back. That has been tried and it is an exercise in futility. The public schools were never, and I mean never, ours to begin with. They have always belonged to the enemies of the Lord Jesus Christ, right from day one!

Oh, I know lots of you don’t want to hear that. Your dear old Aunt Bessie taught in them for years and she never found any problem with them. Now I am not attacking Aunt Bessie’s sincerity but I do question her discernment and the discernment of those Christians who think like she does. And believe me, I have known lots of them. When my wife and I decided to homeschool our children, lo these many years ago now, we got more opposition from the Christians than we did from the world. Those Christians wanted us to put our kids in the local public school and they were quite disappointed when we refused to do that.

Their discernment in this critical area had been tampered with and they unknowingly came down on the side of the Lord’s enemies. After spending two years in Kanawha County, West Virginia during the textbook protest there in the mid-1970s I became convinced that the public school system does not exist to educate. It exists to indoctrinate our children in leftist values. I have never had cause to change my mind on this issue. In fact what I see going on in public schools today more and more bears out my original contentions.

I just read an article on https://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 9th by Julian Conradson which stated, in part: “Investigative journalist and Critical Race Theory opponent Chris Rufo has identified over 30 school districts across 15 different states that are teaching the radical anti-whiteness book Not My Idea by Anastasis Higgenbotham….The book teaches children to primarily identify by their skin color while it paints white children as evil, saying: “Whiteness is a bad deal. It always was…Another page says “Racism is a white person’s problem and we are all caught up in it.” This is an absolute croc. Whatever “racism” exists in this world is a human problem not just a white problem and to teach kids this stuff is to lie to them and do them a grave injustice .Christopher Rufo notes that this book is meant for youngsters as young as kindergarten and it “traffics in the noxious principles of race essentialism, collective guilt, and anti-whiteness.’ Rufo has noted that “Critical race theory is driving public education–and must be stopped.”

But it won’t be stopped and the only solution to not having your kids poisoned by it is to get them out of public schools. Some are learning the lesson and are doing that, but not enough. A good example is California. An article on https://www.zerohedge.com for July 9th noted that: “The most recent homeschool figures are more than twice as high as they were during the 2018-2019 school year, when 14,548 PSAs (private school affidavits) were filed. There were 22, PSAs filed during the 2019-2020 school year. The largest increase in homeschoolers was especially notable among minority groups, including black and Hispanic learners. In African American households the proportion of homeschooling quintupled from 3/3 percent in spring 2020 to 16.1 percent in fall 2020.” By the same token, the percentage of Hispanic families that opted for homeschooling rose from 6.2 percent to 12.1 percent. And this is in just one state, a state not especially friendly to homeschooling. But this tells you something. More minority folks are getting the message that the public school system ain’t really their friend–and that’s important. Now if only the white folks who are continually slandered by that system would begin to get that message! One can only hope the Lord will begin to open their eyes–if they still have eyes to see.

Critical Race Theory Is The New Holy Writ For Public Schools

by Al Benson Jr.

For you Christian (and also other) parents who still think your local public school is still okay for your kids I have to further burst your bubble in the hope of waking at least some of you all up.

I will quote from an article on https://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 5, 2021. The headline for this article states More than 5,000 Woke Teachers Sign Pledge to Teach CRT ‘Regardless of the Law’. The article says, in part “Throughout much of 2021, conservatives, in both classrooms and in the halls of state legislatures have been fighting back against the pervasive influence of critical race theory in public schools. Laws banning the instruction of CRT tenets in public schools have passed in more than 20 states, and there is reason to hope that the tide is beginning to turn in the fight for the country’s history and principles.” I wish I could agree with the latter part of his statement, but I am unable to.

He then notes the Zinn Education Project “that refuses to accept defeat, and desires to teach American children that this country was founded upon the ‘disposition of Native Americans, slavery, structural racism and oppression.” He also observes that “The organization is named for Howard Zinn, a socialist activist and ‘historian’ who wrote A Peoples History of the United States’ a left-wing propaganda pamphlet disguised as a textb0ok that has made its way into history classes all across the country.” So whatever else comes down the pike, you have to realize that Zinn’s book is already here and in use.

The article continues “Now the ZPE is circulating a ‘Pledge to Teach the Truth’ which identifies left-wing methods of analysis like critical race theory as ‘the truth’ and decrees that the signees–all of whom are educators–refuse to be ‘bullied” into compliance with the law.” In other words, these “teachers” who are really nothing more than change agents, are going to teach what they darn well please–no matter what their state laws say. We are told that, so far, there are more than 5,000 teachers in all 50 states that have signed on to do this. And I would be willing to bet that the vast majority of them teach in public schools. So, if you think your kids are “safe” from leftist propaganda tactics in public school because your state has a law against them on the books let me tell you that this is probably not the case–unless your state legislators show some guts on this issue. Even then the outcome is questionable.

Why are the kids not safe with a law on the books that prevents teaching critical race theory you ask. I will quote the headline from another Gateway Pundit article, this one for Independence Day, July 4th. How ironic! This one says Nation’s Largest Teachers Union Approves Plan to Promote Hate-Based Critical Race Theory in All 50 States and 14000 School Districts. The teachers union the article is talking about is The National Education Association, which most public school teachers belong to. Not all, but most. The NEA calls critical race theory “reasonable and appropriate.” They’ve got to be kidding, right? Well, actually, they are not. For a leftist teachers union, critical race theory is very appropriate as it helps to spread the leftist agenda in public school classrooms nationwide.

This is the kind of thing naive parents do not comprehend when they go to school board meetings. A school board meeting in Loudon County, Virginia was recently shut down when parents had the gall to complain about some of the crap their kids were being taught in public schools there. The parents didn’t like what was going on and the school board did not want to hear their legitimate complaints so they shut the meeting down. What this means is that the school board in Loudon Country will do what it damn well pleases and the parents will have no say!

This sort of thing is going on all across the country and still parents continue to funnel their children in to these public brain laundries we are still foolish enough to refer to as “schools.” I am not indicting all public school teachers here. There are still some good ones, but they are part of a shrinking minority–not representative of the public school’s real mission–propagandizing the students with an extreme left-wing bias.

Parents, especially Christian parents need to wake up to this fact and start removing their kids from these schools. I have noted statistics from several states showing public school enrollment is dropping–but not enough! More parents need to begin to get the message, to wake up and smell the coffee. The children they save may well be their own–but they need to get those kids out of the public schools asap.

Independence Day–Are We Really Free?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The title to this article is a rhetorical question. Anyone with a brain already knows the answer and doesn’t need me to tell him. Heck, no, this country is not a free country. In fact it has not been free since the Lincoln administration. We have had the illusion of freedom, with just enough “house privileges” from our federal master to keep us pacified while he reached for total control over our lives. With Harris/Biden in the White (Red) House he now feels that goal is within his grasp and he is getting impatient to grasp it in his hot little socialist hand.

A conservative commentator recently said that the New World Order has successfully taken control of the federal government. When you look at what is now going on it is hard to argue too much with his assessment.

Just about every person Harris/Biden has picked for any official position is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, which means that, in reality, the CFR is running the country, not Biden. Biden is nothing more than their vehicle through which they take total control, if he is even cognizant of what is going on. Biden was their transmission belt to power and when he has accomplished all he can to install them, they will simply disconnect him and put him out to pasture, where he should have been in the first place.

Donald Trump was a major speed bump in the New World Order’s agenda to reduce the US to a banana republic. So everything Trump did had to be undone as quickly as possible. Stealing the election from him was a major first step and keeping him out of office has to be their logical next step. While Trump was not able to restore freedom to America, at least he tried. He is the only president in my lifetime that tried. But I think he underestimated the vice-grip the New World Order had on this country at least since the beginning of the 20th century.

So what about “freedom” in America? Ask the good folks in the South how “free” they are to celebrate their history and heritage. That history and heritage, indeed their very culture, has been under constant assault for at least three decades and probably longer. Their flags and monuments have been torn down, desecrated and vandalized to the point where many of them need a county sheriff to protect them if they go to a cemetery to commemorate the grave of one of their fallen heroes. So how “free” are they? The radical socialists and communists in this country want to destroy not only their history and culture, but them as well.

And these same communists and socialists want to destroy the ranching and farming culture of the far West. After all, who needs real beef when they can be forced to buy Bill Gates’ synthetic phony. It’s all about cultural genocide and Authentic American cultures comprised of people who dare to think for themselves must be destroyed because they are major impediments to the agenda of the New World Order. They will not willingly be slaves to that Order so they have to go!

You want to know who is really free in this country? How about Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and a whole host of other far left groups? They can burn, destroy, pillage and vandalize to their heart’s content and the prostitute press labels them as “peaceful protesters.” The police won’t dare to touch them and the cities they loot and burn have wicked politicians who label what they are doing as “reparations.” The far left can intimidate people with impunity and if those people dare to resist then they are arrested because as we all know, anyone resisting the far left is automatically a “domestic terrorist.”

So, in light of all this, please tell me how “free we are this Independence day!

Unitarian/Socialist Influence On Public Schools

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The recent June 21st issue of The New American magazine is a special report on education in America. The people that publish The New American realize that the major problem we have with education in this country is the public school system. An informative article by Alex Newman in this issue is entitled Government Schools vs. Christianity. Among other things Alex Newman noted: Despite the myth of religious ‘neutrality’ and ‘secular’ schooling perpetrated by the government school establishment and its apologists, all education is fundamentally religious in nature. That is just as true in government schools across the United States as it is in Islamic madrassas of Pakistan. The only question is what what religion and what worldview is being taught.” This is a cogent truth that most people, Christians included, never seem to grasp.

Newman goes on to observe that “non-Christians and anti-Christians with communist leanings were primarily responsible for the government takeover of education in America beginning in the mid-1850s…The gradual replacement of Christianity in the public schools began early on in the history of government-run education. It started with Communist Utopian Robert Owen, the first serious advocate of a total government takeover of education in America. In Owen’s view, only government training of children in collectivism from a young age could produce people ready to dispense with private property and live for what he viewed as the greater good of the collective.

Owen’s collective colony in New Harmony, Indiana went belly-up after only a few years, as most of such socialist experiments did in the 1800s. And there were a lot of them here in the 1800s, from Brook Farm to Fruitlands to New Harmony to the Shaker towns in several states, although the Shakers lasted longer than some of the others.

After his dismal failure at New Harmony, Owen teamed up with Orestes Brownson to promote a “secret society modeled on the Carbonari, an early 19th century Italian secret revolutionary society to work toward that goal.” And Newman tells us that the object of this society was “…convincing the public to support a government takeover of education. The second was to get men elected to the legislatures who would help advance that mission. But there was an even more ambitious goal: setting up a national system of compulsory government schools that would exclude all religion.” Brownson said that “The great object was to get rid of Christianity.”

And Unitarian Horace Mann “wanted to get the Bible out of education under the guise of stopping ‘sectarianism’.” Mann was totally opposed to the Calvinist church schools in Massachusetts. Mann was totally opposed to Reformed theology–indeed he had apostatized from it and formed his own creedal statement of how he felt life should be lived and he wanted to foist that apostate world view on the children of Massachusetts.

All of this happened in the early to mid-1800s–not the 1900s! Our problems with public schools go way, way back to their beginnings. You are not going to reform them by going to parent-teacher meetings or running for the local school board or throwing more public money at the public schools under the fallacious guise of “quality education.”

The public school system will not be reformed because it is doing what it s founders intended it to do. Those who say public education has failed do not understand what this system was created to do. Actually, the public schools have been a howling success at what they were created to do–propagandize your children into accepting and embracing the socialist, anti-Christian worldview.

This should be apparent to anyone who engages in serious thought when you see what is being taught in public schools in our day. Our public schools are teaching concepts that Lenin and Mao would love and endorse. Why do you think that so many of our kids are so sold on communism and socialism? Because they are getting it taught to them in school, that’s why. Oh they don’t call it communism. They give it nobler-sounding names like Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project and a host of others. But what it amounts to is socialist doctrine and propaganda. If you choose to use public schools your kids are being indoctrinated in this stuff.

The articles in this latest issue of the New American advocate that you remove your kids from public schools and work to defund them and I could not agree more. Every new bond issue for public schools that comes up should be voted down. And they would be if only parents started to grasp the agenda of these brain laundries in sufficient numbers.

This Chinese virus that kept so many kids out of school last year allowed parents to get a look at at least some of what was being taught in schools and lots of parents did not like what they saw. Enrollments in public schools are down this year in many states, even here in Louisiana. Home school enrollment is on the rise–and that is good. We need to continue this trend.

More parents need to begin to grasp what the public school system is really all about, particularly Christian parents. Their primary goal is robbing your children of their faith and turning them into good, compliant little collectivists. Despite the efforts of some good teachers, that is the objective of the public school system and those that promote it, and people need to start figuring that out.

When a Socialist Became the Secretary of the Interior

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have noted in recent articles the impact that socialists and communists had in the history of this country well before the twentieth century–going all the way back to the 1840s. Lots of historians–so called–will seldom, if ever, acknowledge this. Even less will they make mention of the basic socialist foundations of the “conservative” Republican Party. This is history we are not supposed to be taught. And mostly, we aren’t. We have to find this out for ourselves by doing the homework.

One thing that does aid us is that more and more, the socialists are not bashful in admitting their impact on our earlier history. Where the historians ignore it, the socialists brag about it. Donnie Kennedy and I, when we wrote our book Lincoln’s Marxists, the first edition of which was called Red Republicans and Lincoln’s Marxists found this to be true. Incidentally, the first edition of our book is still available.

I just recently came across an article entitled https://worldhistory.us/american-history/impact-of-the-forty-eightors-on-the-amer… that was quite frank in what it admitted. It was published in August of 2018. In part it noted: “For the German-American Forty-Eighters, the best political instrument to ply their revolutionary ideals was the new Republican Party…As a result, the German Forty-Eighters became a significant voting bloc in the Republican Party.

Another German Forty-Eighter, Carl Schurz, a farmer and abolitionist from Wisconsin, helped pave the way for Lincoln’s presidential victory…Schurz mobilized a large part of the German-American vote for Lincoln in the general election…Unfortunately, the German-American reputation as fighters suffered during the course of the war. Schurz, who was awarded with a command by Lincoln, led German-speaking units at the battles of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. His soldiers retreated pell-mell in those battles.” Germans supplied around 750,000 of the Union’s 2.5 million soldiers. That was in the neighborhood of 30%. Not all of those were Forty-Eighters, but a fair number were.

The article opines that the War of Northern Aggression would have happened whether the Forty-Eighters were there or not but it says “…the outcome might have been a bit different.

As for Carl Schurz, his propensities for socialist activities continued and he ended up becoming the Secretary of the Interior in the Hays administration. Pretty lofty position for a German socialist to occupy in the federal government. In our book Lincoln’s Marxists we provided a bit of information about Schurz and his time in the Interior Department. It was not Schurz at his best.

But even more harm was done by his wife, Margarethe Meyer Schurz. It was she who introduced the idea of kindergartens into America. She was a disciple of Friedrich Frobel, the founder of the Kindergarten movement. It is worth noting that, when the socialist revolutionaries were driven out of Germany and legitimate government was restored, kindergarten were banned in that country. When I first started this blog back in November of 2011 I did an article dealing with the socialist origins of the kindergarten movement. Like so many other socialist agendas it came into existence in the 1800s, not the 1900s in this country. And our children are not the better off for it. Yet, along with the rest of the public school movement we seem to have embraced it.

Now, with Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project, along with the whole transgender movement some are beginning to see what the public schools have been doing to their children and lots of them don’t like it. Let us hope they realize they need to get their kids out of those indoctrination centers we call public schools.

It should, by now, have begun to dawn on people that a lot of the problems we have in this country were introduced here by European socialists of one stripe or another. And when they arrived they found home-grown American socialists who were more than willing to aid them in the destruction of our God-given liberties. That’s what socialism is really all about.

Marxist Propaganda In Public Schools Posing As Education

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have written about Critical Race Theory before, and I probably will again. It is such a pernicious world view that it deserves all the negative publicity possible. At this point, several state legislatures around the country have bills in their legislatures to ban the teaching of this theory in their public schools and, while I have no use for the public school system, I do applaud these efforts. At least some in these state legislatures recognize what a horrendous insult to real education this leftist drivel really is.

However, for some reason, that does not hold true in the state of Washington. According to https://thefederallist.com/2021/06/03/washington-mandates-critical-race-theory this leftist plague will be visited on all public school students in that state. According to this article: “The race-obsessed framework isn’t relegated to schools in Seattle, where you’d expect a victim-centered ideology like critical race theory to flourish. Thanks to the state’s Democrat-controlled legislature, a trio of bills just signed into law mandates critical race theory training for all public school teachers. Another even requires training for medical students, teaching them it’s as essential to be social justice activists as it is to treat patients.. While critical race theory mandates go into effect in the 2022-2023 school year, many districts are already jumping on board.” Two mentioned are the Issaquah School District and the one in Bellingham.

The article also observes that “Staffers learn that black people cannot be racist because they don’t have power, that whites benefit from white privilege even if they experience ‘high poverty’ and that virtually every American institution is founded in white supremacy.” Can you imagine teachers being forced to communicate this lunacy to their students? This is not education. This is Marxist indoctrination, pure and simple. It occurs to me that those who promote this sort of thing are the real racists and not those they are trying to teach this stuff to.

You have racial prejudice among all ethnic groups, not just white folks, and to try to tell students that they are “racist” just because they are white is doing them a real disservice. By the same token, telling black students they lack the ability to have racial prejudice is lying to them. And those that promote this twaddle know that.

I mentioned in a previous article, an article by Christopher Rufo on Imprimis for March, 2021, Volume 50, No. 3 where Mr. Rufo deals with Critical Race Theory. He states: “Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula.” If you can locate Mr. Rufo’s article on the internet https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/imprimis_Mar_3-21

From what he has said, it doesn’t look like the leftists have missed out in many areas–education, business, you name it. While we have been busy and bemused watching ball games and reality shows the radical leftists among us have been busy with their efforts to subvert our institutions–and mostly we don’t begin to have the remotest clue. Where has the Christian Church been while all this was going on? Don’t hold your breath waiting for the answer to that one! I’m not sure you want to know!

For the poor folks in Washington who will be subjected to all of this I have some advice. Get your kids OUT of the public school system immediately if not sooner! Unless you want your kids to be trained to be good little Marxists, you don’t need this! And people in other states need to keep an eye on this situation, lest your legislators betray you and cave in to this sort of thing.

The leftists seem to come up with lots of noble-sounding euphemisms–tolerance, brotherhood, inclusiveness, and others, but when you look at the real guts of what they are peddling it is usually just a sugar-coated Marxism, with just enough sugar to fool the naive.

Critical Race Theory is bad news–Marxist bad news. Those who want to protect their children from this pile of leftist cow chips need to be aware of that fact. And once you become aware, then inform others.

Critical Race Theory and The Local Public School

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

In March of 2021 writer Christopher F. Rufo did an article for Hillsdale Colleges’ publication Imprimis in which he dealt with Critical Race Theory and its origins. I can’t deal with it all here. It is long and informative and you may be able to find it on the internet–if it hasn’t been censored off by now. For my purposes here I will give you a brief quote. Mr. Rufo noted that: “Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions.” One of those public institutions is the public school system and Critical Race Theory is, regardless of what some try to tell us, alive and unfortunately well in our public school systems in America.

I read an article for May 24th on https://www.thegatewaypundit.com which observed: “In Cherokee County, Georgia there was a grassroots victory at the school board level as concerned parents convinced their elected school board members, on the spot, to prohibit the implementation of Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project based on their concerns. .According to (a) reader, interest in the topic of CRT and the 1619 project was intense and concerned citizens overfilled the building where the school board meeting was held and many had to be out in the parking lot:..The school board voted 4-1, with two abstentions to approve a resolution to prohibit implementation of critical race theory and the 1619 Project..from being taught in Cherokee schools. Groups of concerned parents , teachers, students, and other concerned citizens around the country are organizing similar resistance to the Marxist teaching style and learning aids called CRT, with lobbying efforts at their school board and local government levels, seeking similar resolutions to have it banned from public schools.”

Now, let me ask a question here–have any of you older folks ever seen a situation similar to this? To some of us who have lived in West Virginia, this is a carbon copy of the beginning of the Kanawha County Textbook Protest that took place in that county in West Virginia during the mid-to-late 1970s. The Kanawha County school board, with the exception of the one honest lady on it, Alice Moore, tried to foist off a set of really raunchy textbooks on the students in that county. The parents in Kanawha County protested, picketed the schools, marched, and contacted their political leadership at the state and local levels–and no one could, or would, help them. And there was no help forthcoming at the federal level because it is the federal level that is responsible for what your kids are spoon-fed at the local level. Anyone trying to tell you different is either naive or a liar. Everything in public schools is filtered through the grid of the federal Department of Education, except maybe the times the kids are allowed to have recess. Local control of public education is a vaunted myth that should have died out after the feds put down the textbook revolt in West Virginia , using whatever methods they needed to.

So I will say this to the good folks in Cherokee County, Georgia. You have put off the implementation of Critical Race Theory in your public schools–for now! However, if you don’t keep your eye on your local school board, and think you have won this fight for good and all, then somewhere down the road, this “educational” Marxist construct will resurface once the parents quit watching out for it. It may come back with a different name to throw parents off track but it will be back–just as sure as the turning of the earth!

In order to prevent your kids from again facing the probability of being subjected to this Marxist drivel posing as education you would be better advised to remove your kids, if at all possible, from the public school system and either find a good Christian school or teach them at home. For those willing to make the sacrifice this can be done. It means learning to accept the responsibility for your own kids’ education rather than leaving the job up to local school educrats who may or may not have your kids’ best interest at heart. This is not a blanket indictment of all who teach or have taught in public school. We have a niece who teaches in one. Rather it is a warming to be alert because there are many in the educational bureaucracy at all levels who view your kids as cannon fodder to the leftist propaganda they intend to shove down their throats as part of the destruction of your culture and history.

Christian parents especially need to hear this, but I fear not many of them will listen. A lot I know never did and they were anxious to even avoid this discussion. Being forewarned, however, is to work toward being forearmed. To all but leftist parents–understand this-the public school system ain’t your friend–it is the culture destroyer of your heritage.

Critical Race Theory and “Woke” Evangelicals

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I can recall, back in the 1980s, which seems like ancient history now, that one of the evangelical authors that got lots of attention was Os Guinness. Evangelicals raved about his work. At that point I had not read much of what he wrote. At that point he seemed rather apolitical to me and that seemed to be what evangelicals back then liked–someone that was either apolitical or leaned slightly to the left. It was considered in some evangelical circles to be rather avant-garde to lean to the left politically. What many evangelicals did not seem to realize was that all politics is, at root, theological and that politics is only someone’s outworking of his theology. Therefore, if your politics leaned to the left, so did your theology.

Many evangelicals, even today, still have not figured this out.

I have wondered if the evangelicals who loved Os Guinness back in the 80s would still love him today, but I have doubts about that due to a column on https://www.wnd.com/2021/05/evil-critical-race.theory written by Art Moore. Mr. Moore says: “One year ago, few Americans outside of higher education had heard of Critical Race Theory, which contends the concept of race is not biological but rather a culturally invented category designed by white people to oppress people of color. Now, having leaked from its academic lab, CRT is spreading exponentially to school boards, corporate offices the military and governmental agencies…But it’s urgent that citizens of this nation realize that CRT is not merely ‘erroneous teaching’ and that the ‘leak’ was no accident, warns Os Guinness, an Oxford-educated scholar with an unusual cultural and political vantage point. Born to Christian medical missionaries in China where he was a witness of Mao’s communist revolution, Guinness contents that CRT is part of an intentional, systematic, revolutionary movement in America stretching back to the 1930s that intends to replace this unique experiment in ordered liberty with a system responsible for the deaths of more than 100 million people in the 20th century…The so-called ‘cancel culture’ and Critical Race Theory are ‘the fruit’ of what has been described as the ‘long march through the institutions’ and ‘the triumph of cultural Marxism, or neo-Marxism,’ Guinness said in an interview with Eric Metaxas.”

And Moore observed that “Guinness noted that the term ‘long march through the institutions’ was coined by communist student activist Rudi Dutschke in the 1960s. It was popularized by German-American Marxist scholar Herbert Marcuse of the so-called Frankfurt school of critical theory in his 1972 book Counterrevolution and Revolt.”

So this entire thing we have been fed is a communist construct. Moore noted that “The sexual revolution and cultural Marxism, Guinness told Metaxas, are ‘the heirs of the French Revolution.” And Guinness tells us “The tragedy is today we’re switching from the American Revolution to the heirs of the French Revolution, and that switch is disastrous.” Guinness is right on the money here.

Moore noted: “Guinness, a British citizen who has lived in the United States since 1968, said that many evangelical leaders are ‘incredibly naive’ about what is happening today because they don’t see the big picture. He recalled the many Zoom calls with evangelical pastors in which he has participated amid the cultural upheaval following the death of George Floyd. Many of these pastors speak of ‘social justice’ Guinness said, without understanding they have ‘drunk the kool aid’ of cultural Marxism.”

Guinness tells us that “The way of the cultural Marxist, the radical left, is only power, and it makes the problem worse, not better.” Those that understand Marxism know that this is intentional. not coincidental.

As I worked over this article, the thought came to me–where were the Christians when all this has been happening? Sad to say, they were probably out to lunch–a long, prolonged lunch, which is probably where they drank the kool aid of cultural Marxism!

Unless evangelical pastors start waking up to what’s going on and warning their congregations about all this the future of the church in our day is bleak indeed. I know the Lord will win the victory in the end, but I think he wants to use His people to help win that victory. If His people have been put to sleep with cultural Marxist kool aid that victory may take longer than it otherwise would have.
