For the publisher:
The following comments do not reflect those of the Lee County Council of Commissioners:
This week, the White House proposed that Americans need to “skip” family and friends who are potential “national terrorists”. The latter, according to the “awakened left,” is anyone associated with: President Trump, veterans, members of the NRA, pro-life conservatives, constitutional defenders, Christians and Republicans.
This action is certainly reminiscent of the STASI secret police of the former Democratic Republic of East Germany. After the fall of the Iron Curtain and the subsequent rampage of the STASI headquarters, many East Germans of the former Communist dictatorship found their families and their circle of friends plagued by snitches. Marxism anyone?
We see the teaching of Marxist / Communist based “Critical Race Theory” (CRT) infiltrating our institutions of higher indoctrination, our public educational collectives and many of our enlightened societies. The ideology of the CRT dates back to Marxist academics at the Frankfurt School of Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, fleeing the repression of their Nazi “socialist” brethren in the 1930s and settling at the prestigious Columbia University. Their graduates then infiltrated other institutions of higher education across the United States to promote the pseudo-social science of CRT and ethnic studies.
CRT is moving forward today by embracing buzzwords, such as: “white privilege”, “systemic racism”, “diversity”, “fairness” and “inclusion”. The CRT forces the idea that all white people are bad and that all people of color are the “oppressed,” thus rewriting our history through Project 1619 and denouncing the Constitution of the United States as a document. racist, forever establishing “white privilege”.
Now within the Ministry of Defense, our new Secretary of Defense is actively purging the army of all “white supremacists”. Who are they? Refer to the list above. The Chief of Naval Operations promotes the book “How to Be an Anti-Racist” as part of the Navy’s professional reading program. The problem with the book is that it embraces the Marxist CRT, in that it defines all white people as “racist oppressors” and all people of color as perpetually “oppressed”. Imagine a military man reading this poison and judging all his peers under the CRT. How does one depend on the other, regardless of race, to protect and defend themselves on the battlefield? See how this divisive ideology is destructive for the cohesion and the strength of unity?
The ultimate goal of this Marxist ideology is to divide this country into belligerent groups remaining in perpetual conflict with each other. How do you think you can destroy the greatest nation on this earth? A nation founded on the conviction that “All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. The late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would no doubt see the destructive nature of critical race theory and oppose the very essence of that ideology.
As always, I will stay, In search of our freedoms given by God!
