Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who is currently running for governor again, described Critical Race Theory (CRT) as a “right-wing conspiracy.”
Caught on tape earlier this month, McAuliffe said to a woman who asked his thoughts on CRT, “It’s another right-wing conspiracy. This is totally made up by Donald Trump and Glenn Youngkin. This is who they are. It’s a conspiracy theory.”
McAuliffe’s comments about Critical Race Theory came about a week prior to the National Education Association (NEA) speaking in support of Critical Race Theory. NEA has donated more than $100,000 to McAuliffe, and its Virginia arm has endorsed the former governor in his new bid for office, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. McAuliffe has also received substantial donations from another major teachers’ union and Critical Race Theory supporter, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).
Becky Pringle, president of the NEA, said last week when asked about Critical Race Theory in an interview with CBS News that it is important to “make sure that [students] have the opportunity to be those problem solvers we need them to be so we can confront the institutional racism that this country lives with every single day,” adding that “it’s not just about history. It’s about right now as we very well know.”
Pringle contended that “we are doing a disserve to our students” by not teaching about systemic racism. “Parents, allies throughout all of our communities are saying, no, we have a rich history in this country. We need to make sure that all of that history is included in what we teach our students,” she said, “because we believe in them and we know that when we teach the truth they will become the leaders of a just society.”
It’s funny that every time Conservatives disagree with liberals, we are suddenly conspiracy theorists. Especially when it relates to racism and social matters.
