Marxism Has Hijacked the Next Generation
The banning of Doctor Seuss, the BLM riots across various cities, and the black-listing of conservative actors all have a common thread: a societal indoctrination of a rebranded version of Marxism, called Critical Race Theory (CRT). Marxist teachings in our education are being engrained into the core beliefs of next-generation Americans, right now, right under our noses; and older generations are having a hard time recognizing it. This article provides insight into why this is.
The idea of Marxism indoctrinating our children may shock some; but understand, it is here. Critical Race Theory is becoming a baked-in doctrine in public schools — K-12, colleges, and universities — as well as in corporate and government diversity training. This type of teaching is taught and discussed under the pretext of “equity”, “diversity”, and “Inclusion”.
Critical theory is the antithesis of American and Western values. It promotes the dismantling of capitalism. It is anti-Christian. It is authoritarian. It is racist. And, it is intellectually seductive and dangerous to our society.

Heritage Foundation Reports
The Heritage Foundation labels Critical Race Theory (CRT) as America’s “new intolerance”. In a report released in December of 2020, Heritage summarizes CRT as a troubling ideology that’s taking hold in America:
“Critical Race Theory (CRT) makes race the prism through which its proponents analyze all aspects of American life—and do so with a degree of persistence that has helped CRT impact all of American life. CRT underpins identity politics, an ongoing effort to reimagine the United States as a nation riven by groups, each with specific claims on victimization. In entertainment, as well as the education and workforce sectors of society, CRT is well-established, driving decision-making according to skin color—not individual value and talent. As Critical Theory ideas become more familiar to the viewing public in everyday life, CRT’s intolerance becomes “normalized,” along with the idea of systemic racism for Americans, weakening public and private bonds that create trust and allow for civic engagement.”

Critical Race Theory Explained
Critical Race Theory looks to be intentionally complex with unique jargon and nebulous terms — such as White Oppression, Intersectionality, white fragility, wokeness. However, it is simple to understand once you know it’s merely Marxism rebranded — spawned from the Critical Theory and Critical Legal Theory ideologies.
Critical Theory: the ideology from which Critical Race Theory (CRT) was born
Critical Theory should not be confused with ‘Critical Thinking’. These are two different concepts. They are so different in fact, Critical Theory followers believe Critical Thinking is a Western concept that oppresses people and should be removed from our educational systems.
How is Critical Theory Marxist propaganda?
It’s well documented that the founders of the Critical Theory ideology were self-described Marxists and they actively promoted the doctrine as a new practical way forward for Marxism in practice. The origins and initial development of this doctrine commenced at the Frankfurt School, Goethe University (Frankfurt, Germany) in 1923.
Early Concepts of Critical Theory
This is Wikipedia’s entry on Critical Theory:
“Max Horkheimer first defined critical theory (German: Kritische Theorie) in his 1937 essay ‘Traditional and Critical Theory’, as a social theory oriented toward critiquing and changing society as a whole, in contrast to traditional theory oriented only toward understanding or explaining it. Wanting to distinguish critical theory as a radical, emancipatory form of Marxist philosophy, Horkheimer critiqued both the model of science put forward by logical positivism, and what he and his colleagues saw as the overt positivism and authoritarianism of orthodox Marxism and Communism. He described a theory as critical insofar as it seeks ‘to liberate human beings from the circumstances that enslave them.’ Critical theory involves a normative dimension, either by criticizing society in terms of some general theory of values or norms (oughts), or by criticizing society in terms of its own espoused values (i.e. immanent critique).
“The core concepts of critical theory are that it should:
- be directed at the totality of society in its historical specificity (i.e. how it came to be configured at a specific point in time)
- improve understanding of society by integrating all the major social sciences, including geography, economics, sociology, history, political science, anthropology, and psychology”
Critical Theory Entered Education in the 70s and 80s
Integrating Critical Theory into education systems was initiated by Paulo Freire, a Brazilian educator and philosopher, who published the book, “The Pedagogy of the Oppressed” in 1968. He traveled the world working as an educational advisor for the World Council of Churches, and later became the Secretary of Education in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Freire’s primary premise on Critical Theory, as he described in his book, is that there are binary social classes in constant struggle:
- an oppressor class that oppresses; and,
- an oppressed class that is oppressed. Further, it is the oppressed class’ task is to liberate the oppressors, and themselves (as members of the oppressed class), from their respective roles.
These two fundamental CT underpinnings compose the foundation for Critical Race Theory.
Critical Theory’s Expansion Across Academia
Across it’s short history, Critical Theory has been adapted across many fields in academia and rebranded as new theories. Examples of new doctrine with integrated CT concepts include:
- Critical Legal Theory (CLT)
- Critical Race Theory (an off-shoot of CLT)
- Critical Criminology (an off-shoot of CLT)
- Feminist Legal Theory (an off-shoot of CLT)
- Queer Theory
- Post Colonial Theory
- Black Marxism
Enter Critical Race Theory (CRT)
An ideology that teaches America is irredeemably racist and must be overhauled
CRT is Intellectually seductive and deceivingly fraudulent. After Critical Theory spawned Critical Legal Theory, Critical Race Theory came into its own under the pretense of ‘civil rights’. CRT’s goal is to jettison traditional beliefs and systems by way of radical social disruption in order to achieve ‘social justice’.
This not your parent’s idea of civil rights. CRT turns historical civil rights on it’s head by redefining many basic terms, such as ‘racism’ and ‘equality’, and creating new concepts outside of the Martin Luther King tradition. As a matter of fact, apologists for CRT say Dr. King was wrong on how he described equal rights.
“This is a clear violation of the law.”
Christopher Rufo, City Journal reporter , discusses Critical Race Theory being taught to a teacher training program in Seattle, WA. Rufo’s reports on CRT can be found here.
BLM ideology is Critical Race Theory
All the beliefs espoused by the three founders of the Black Lives Matter organizations (Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi) come straight out of CRT canon:
- America is institutionally/structurally/systemically racist.
- America’s legal system protects the powerful and amounts to racism codified in statutes.
- neutrality and objectivity are impossible to obtain.
- objectivity and individuality are privileges.
- the gauge by which to judge America is equality of outcome.
- speech and other rights must be suppressed in order to protect the marginalized.
“[CRT] explains how the Black Lives Matter organizations built an aggressive political movement on CRT’s racially focused ideas—ideas apologists can use to justify violent riots,” The Heritage Foundation
Critical Race Theory (CRT)
The Ideology’s 4 Central Ideas
The Social Binary
CRT promotes the idea that for society in broken down into social groups; ie. race, class, religion, gender, ability status, nationality. Within these groups are opposing subgroups members of society are part of; either a privileged oppressor group or a subordinate oppressed group. This is Marxism’s idea of class warfare applied to social identity groups.
The dictionary’s definition of oppression is cruel prolonged unjust treatment and control. Under CRT, the word ‘Oppression’ is redefined. Under CRT, Oppression is used to describe the “disadvantage and injustice some people suffer not because of a tyrannical power coerces them, but because of the everyday practices of a well-intentioned liberal society.” As stated by Iris Marion Young, author of Five Faces of Oppression, CRT defined oppression is about insidious subtle ideas that have shaped our culture that we except as common sense. Incredibly, CRT believers would say someone can belong to both oppressor and oppressed groups at the same time — an example of this would someone who is a white woman.
CRT states objectivity is meaningless, it is a way to oppress others, and it’s a Western White idea that needs to be remodeled.
“Academic literature produced in the past 20 years by educational theorists on K–12 curriculum argue that narrative stories and stories from personal experiences—hallmarks of CRT—should replace instruction about facts.” — The Heritage Foundation
The goal of CRT is to achieve social justice and the dismantling of all oppressive social structures. CRT proponents are attempting to destabilize and dismantle all Western ideas and norms.
Hallmarks of Critical Race Theory
Followers of CRT are determined to do what it takes to remedy “oppression”. They use studies, statistics, and analogies as pretext to dismantle the oppressor’s perceived “power” over various groups they view as oppressed.
Is your child taught CRT in the classroom?
Most written CRT material omits the concept of Equality and replaces it with a new term, Equity. Also, mentions of Dr. Martin Luther King are either glossed over or he is not mentioned at all in CRT materials. The following bullets are more telltale signs your child may have a CRT curriculum.

Describing biographical experiences are a common tool used in lectures. This Tedx talk is an example.
Analogies and Metaphors
With CRT, the use of stories in fhe form of anologies are employed to explain ideological concepts. The lesson in this video is a great example.
