Thursday on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, demagogue Rep. Steve Cohen stated falsely that Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin (R) “created an issue to appeal to people, which was basically appealing to their racial animus and their racial prejudices” by talking about Critical Race Theory (CRT), which “doesn’t exist in the schools in Virginia.”
“[H]e campaigned to win and he campaigned and talked about keeping racial — Critical [Race] Theory out of the schools in Virginia. Well, it’s not in the schools in Virginia,” Cohen lied.
“I want to keep dinosaurs out of the bathrooms of little girls. We don’t have dinosaurs in the bathrooms,” Cohen ranted. “But I could be against it, and everybody’s against it. And that’s the same thing about this Critical Race Theory in Virginia. It doesn’t exist in the schools in Virginia. So, he created an issue to appeal to people, which was basically appealing to their racial animus and their racial prejudices.”
Democrats insist illogically that 1) CRT doesn’t exist, 2) CRT exists but is not being taught in schools, and 3) keeping CRT from being taught in schools is racist. Which is it?
In fact, CRT not only exists but, whether or not educators actually call it Critical Race Theory, its ideology is being disseminated in curricula nationwide from pre-K through graduate school. Its racial divisiveness is poisoning the country, and supporters like Cohen are the real racists for pushing it.
