Mainstream Radicalism: How Did It Get This Far?

Written and Narrated by Ethan Hay

Critical Race Theory (CRT) continues to be pushed aggressively by far-left activists, media commentators, and politicians. But now it has officially been endorsed by the two largest teacher unions in the country. The National Education Association (NEA) (1) originally endorsed CRT on its website, but it was taken down. The NEA, also in coordination with the Zinn Education Project, has had over five thousand teachers sign a ‘Pledge to Teach (2) the Truth.’ This is an act of defiance against bills that have either been signed into law, or have been introduced by a number of states (3) banning the teaching of CRT. On top of that, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) (4) president, Randi Weingarten, has said that the AFT has a legal fund that is ‘ready to go’ in defense of any teachers who espouse CRT, or as she calls it ‘accurate history.’ CRT also continues to affect the military, as was shown by the US Air Force Academy professor who is calling for the theory to be taught to cadets. There have been calls for associate professor Lynne Chandler Garcia, (5) to be removed from her position by several members of congress.

The Black Lives Matter Utah chapter continues to push the hatred that is synonymous with the organization’s entire existence. On the 4th of July they posted on their official Facebook page this quote:

“When we Black Americans see this flag we know the person flying it is not safe to be around. When we see this flag we know the person flying it is a racist. When we see this flag we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do. When we see this flag, we question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is a symbol of hatred.”

Ignoring the fact that their page is filled with content that is either blatantly or borderline racist, (6) they also gleefully presented documents with comments that were horrible to read, saying that these comments were only proving their point. Continuing in this vein, a number of celebrities, like Alyssa Milano (7), also bashed America. She said on a Tik Tok post that the US was founded on the ‘unjust treatment of Native Americans, Africans, and other people of color.’ Then there is the case of Olympic athlete Gwen Berry (8) who turned her back when the national anthem was played during the podium presentation of medals for her heat in the US Olympic trial games. She said that it ‘felt like a setup,’ after coming in third behind Brooke Andersen, who was second, and then first place finisher Deanna Price.

As bad as they are, for the most part they don’t have any actual power other than occupying the social and cultural sphere. However, Anthony Fauci has actual power, and now he is telling people to ‘just get over it and try to save the lives of yourself and your family (9),’ by getting the so-called COVID-19 vaccine. He continues to try and remain relevant as his connection to the Chinese Communist Party (10) is exposed, and he continues to lose credibility due to his constant flip flopping (11) when it comes to the virus. Another person who has actual political power is Health and Human Services Secretary, Xavier Becerra, (12) and he believes that it is ‘absolutely the government’s business,’ to know whether or not people are getting vaccinated. He was echoing a sentiment that was uttered by Former Vice President Joe Biden, (13) saying that:

Now we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes, door to door — literally knocking on doors — to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus.’

After-all, privacy doesn’t matter to the federal government. Just ask Tucker Carlson, who has actually been proven true regarding being spied on by the National Security Agency. Especially after a story was published on Axios (14) that mentioned his desire to interview Russian president, Vladimir Putin. Tucker (15) has said that was an email that was sent privately between him and his producer.

There is good news though as, little by little, Americans are beating back the far left and exposing them for the frauds they are. Quite literally in the case of Michael Avenatti (16) and the media who fawned over him for a bit. The people are done with being taken advantage of, and they are showing that by taking up local politics and running for school board member, (17) so as to protect children and take a stand against racism. We must all stand tall and never surrender to the malevolent nature of the far left.
