Professor Lynne Chandler Garcia recently published an op-ed in the Washington Post in which she defended indoctrinating her students on the concepts of critical race theory, or CRT.
Normally, this wouldn’t raise any eyebrows. A member of the intelligentsia teaching her students a boutique academic theory? Hardly shocking. What did get people’s attention was Garcia's place of employment. None other than the U.S. Air Force Academy.
The woke revolution in the classroom is about to go federal. In an early but revelatory move, President Biden’s Department of Education has signaled its intent to impose the most radical forms of Critical Race Theory on America’s schools, very much including the 1619 Project and the so-called anti-racism of Ibram X. Kendi.
Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Rhodes, commander of the 1-8 Infantry – “Fighting Eagles“, has a message for all serving in the military: if you’re white, you’re the problem.
It was recently discovered that Rhodes, who holds a position of authority and responsibility, runs a private, “woke,” left-wing Twitter account under the name “Dru.” If the Twitter account wasn’t enough to convince you of his radical beliefs, his comment at a military function should do the job.
“If you’re a white male, you are part of the problem,” Rhodes reportedly said.

A U.S. congressman is seeking transparency from West Point Military Academy after hearing complaints regarding elements of critical race theory present in its training curriculum.
Rep. Mike Waltz, a member of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee, sent a letter to West Point leaders requesting copies of teaching materials provided at West Point after receiving complaints from various families and cadets.
In a phone interview with The College Fix, the Florida Republican explained that many families of West Point cadets come from military or law enforcement backgrounds, saying “they found it incredibly divisive.”
Waltz’s letter detailed slides from various West Point workshops, including “White Power at West Point,” “Racist Dog Whistles at West Point” and “Understanding Whiteness and White Rage.”
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin Says CRT Isn't Being Taught...
"As a professor of political science … I teach critical race theories to our nation’s future military leaders because it is vital that cadets understand the history of the racism that has shaped both foreign and domestic policy."
The Hard Left: It's Like a Virus...
Now with money, institutions in their hip pocket, and cool popular culture, the Left would not just damn American institutions, but infect them: alter their DNA, and reengineer them into revolutionary agencies.
"Rather than e pluribus unum, rather than teamwork, rather than cohesion, we're being taught an ideology which seeks to divide us based on the color of our skin.
"I've flown into combat zones. It didn’t matter if my copilot was black or not. How are we better for teaching all the elements of critical race theory?"
Worst of all, perhaps, the U.S. military — under the sleepy eye of President Biden — has begun deconstructing decades of work building a cohesive fighting force by dividing soldiers by race.
Critical race theory, a Marxist concoction of black resentment and white guilt, has infiltrated all branches of the military, thanks to the “woke” politics of Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
