There has been a push for critical race theory to be taught in schools across America. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) demolished Critical Race Theory on Friday explaining just how “racist” it is. Critical Race Theory applies Marxism’s theory of economic class conflict to all race.
Cruz recounted a conversion the senator had with a reporter up on Capitol Hill when the reporter asked him to define CRT while speaking at the Faith & Freedom Coalition Road to Majority Conference in Orlando.
“Apparently he thought I would turn to him and say, ‘Gosh I have no idea,’” he said.
“It’s a theory that derives from Marxism,” Cruz said he explained to the reporter. “Karl Marx viewed the entire world as a conflict between classes, between the owners of capital and the working men and women, the proletariat; a fundamental battle in society. Critical Race Theory takes that same Marxist concept, except it replaces class with race.”
“And it says all of America and all of the world is a battle between the races. Critical Race Theory says every white person is a racist. Critical Race Theory says America is fundamentally racist and irredeemably racist. Critical Race Theory seeks to turn us against each other, and if someone has a different color skin, seeks to make us hate that person.”
“And let me tell you right now, Critical Race Theory is bigoted, it is a lie, and it is every bit as racist as the Klansmen in white sheets,” Cruz said to applause from the crowd.
“As a Christian and as an American, I love my brothers and sisters, whatever skin color you are, whatever ethnicity you are, whatever faith you are, whatever creed you are. We are commanded to love, period, the end,” he added. “And those who would divide us, those who would spread lies, it is evil. It is exactly that, it is evil.”
