Unlike most politicians, it’s often best not to mince words and get straight to the point. But, one politician in the U.K. is standing up to extreme progressivism by calling it out for exactly what it is…extreme.
Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) Kemi Badenoch, who is also an Equalities Minister, stood up against what she believes is a detriment to school children all across the globe, but particularly in the U.K. — Critical Race Theory and the Marxist Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization/movement.
Badenoch perfectly described the mentality taught in Critical Race Theory, which is designed to divide people until the seemingly false pretense of equality, unity and anti-racism.
What we are against is the teaching of contested political ideas as if they are accepted fact. We don’t do this with communism. We don’t do this with socialism. We don’t do it with capitalism. And I want to speak about a dangerous trend in race relations that has come too close to home to my life, and it’s the promotion of critical race theory — an ideology that sees my blackness as victimhood and their whiteness as oppression.
I want to be absolutely clear. This government stands unequivocally against Critical Race Theory.
That is such a simple, yet precise analysis of what Critical Race Theory entails.
After Badenoch condemned the practice, she switched her focus to BLM.
Black lives do matter, of course they do. But we know that the Black Lives Matter movement, capital B-L-M, is political. I know this, because at the height of the protest, I’ve been told of white, Black Lives Matter protesters calling — and I’m afraid, I apologize for saying this word — calling a black, armed police officer guarding Downing Street ‘a pet n***er.’ That is why we do not endorse that movement on this side of the house. It is a political movement, and what would be nice would be for members on the opposite side to condemn many actions that we see this political movement instead of pretending that it is a completely wholesome, anti-racist organization.
