If you’ve been reading this site for any amount of time, then you know that Critical Race Theory is a bunch of racist garbage which tells African-Americans that they’re helpless and tries to push government control of all areas of life. It’s really just a vehicle to push Marxism on America.
Because of this, conservative Americans (and even politically liberal Americans who aren’t completely insane) have opposed CRT in our government and in our schools, but these people may have lacked the specific language and method to fight CRT on legal grounds.
Fortunately, one man may have given us that legal pathway. Matthew Vadum writes,
Putting the fight against critical race theory –which holds that white people are inherently racist— on a firmer footing by emphasizing that teaching it in public schools violates the Constitution and civil rights laws is an excellent tactic, supporters of traditional patriotic education told The Epoch Times.
Their comments came after Austin Knudsen, Republican attorney general of Montana, wrote a legal opinion about whether Marxist-invented critical race theory (CRT) violated the U.S. and Montana constitutions as well as various federal civil rights laws. He was responding to an inquiry by Elsie Arntzen, Montana’s superintendent of public instruction, also a Republican.
The opinion came as public resistance to CRT grows and intensifies among parents in communities across the country who are fighting back by protesting and taking over local school boards. In 26 state legislatures bills have been introduced or other steps have been taken to prevent CRT from being taught, according to Education Week.
But those measures have rarely offered a comprehensive rationale for banning CRT, which is something Knudsen’s legal opinion provides, sources consulted for this article told The Epoch Times. Without tying objections to CRT to the Constitution or state constitutions, CRT opponents had left their laws more susceptible to being overturned.
Hopefully, this legal opinion will give CRT opponents what they need to take the CRT fight to the courts to end that garbage in America forever.
If you know people involved in the fight to stop CRT, please let them know about this legal opinion so that they can make use of it.
