Must See: Protests Outside The Capitol Amid Leftism In The Classroom

Written By BlabberBuzz | Friday, 19 November 2021 02:15

Activists went to Capitol Hill this week as part of a demonstration against concepts like critical race theory (CRT) in education.

The event – called 'Government Is NOT a Co-Parent' – was hosted by the Independent Women's Network and featured addresses from many members of Congress. Signs read "We've had enough" and "Government shouldn't control our kids" – touching on stress among administrators, educators, and parents throughout the nation.

Tuesday's event comes as CRT opponents are celebrating many GOP wins in Virginia, which are believed to serve as a hint for things to come in 2022.

"Right now, there is a revolution occurring where parents are starting to take back their schools, and I think we need to be voices for that," Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, told Fox News after his speech at the rally. He continued that Republicans have to embrace the issue before midterms as the battle over education is playing out across the nation – not only in Virginia.

"Youngkin's success reveals that Republicans can and must become the party of parents," read a recent memo from the Republican Study Committee (RSC) regarding the campaign of Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin. "There is real energy from parents that we need to understand."

Defenders claim that CRT-type training helps enhance dominant groups' perception and understanding of what the oppressed experience regularly. These types of training have further been advanced as methods to "dismantle" or weaken alleged structures imposing burdens through bias and discrimination.

Angela Onwuachi-Willig, a specialist on critical race theory at Boston University School of Law, said to the Boston Globe that CRT helped people understand the complexity of race – beyond "simple" narratives that they may have been shown.

While states generally handle education policy, federal actors have become more enmeshed in the matter in recent months.

"With Joe Biden in the White House and his dangerous agenda – and Nancy Pelosi and these socialist Democrats running the Congress – we have to fight back," announced Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., who chairs the RSC.

He continued that the election in Virginia was an "inspiration," with results that would play out in other areas throughout midterms.

President Biden's Education Department beforehand came under fire for pushing grants for what seemed to be CRT-related ideas. Meanwhile, part of his coronavirus relief has been leveraged to push "equity" and other initiatives. More controversially, Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a memo that raised questions regarding how the administration perceived purported intimidation from parents at school board meetings.

Roy, who attended high school in Loudoun County, Virginia, told Fox News: "I can promise you that if the people put Republicans back in charge, we'll be having a lot of oversight hearings in this administration."
