Stop Critical Race Theory in Ohio Public Schools

LFC comments by Brian Massie, Executive Director
I never thought it would happen, but while holding this sign at a protest in Mentor, I was jeered and taunted about holding the sign. (Maybe it was the LFC hat annoyed them.) When I posted an article about mask mandates in school with this picture attached in a Nextdoor app, I received a question asking what this has to do with wearing masks.

Unfortunately, many Americans cannot see the much larger picture of what is happening in the world. Masks and vaccine mandates are symptoms of the much larger problem – the destruction of Western Civilization, the loss of U.S. sovereignty, and the loss of individual freedom and liberty.

Evil works in incremental steps, and what we are experiencing in our country started a very long time ago. Sadly, we believe that we have not “hit bottom”, and we are on the path of destruction. The pace is accelerating because the Communist Democrats are in control in Washington, and the Republican leadership has sold out their country for money and power. We are in a spiritual battle of good versus evil.

Critical race theory (CRT) is a descendent of critical theory (CT), a school of philosophy that began in Frankfurt, Germany, in the 1920s and 1930s at the University of Frankfurt’s Institute for Social Research.

It became known as “the Frankfurt School” and was one of the first, if not the first, Western Marxist schools patterned after the Marx-Engels Institute in Moscow. The Frankfurt School’s scholars fled to Columbia University’s Teachers College in New York in 1934 to escape persecution by the Nazis, and were careful to erase the word Marxism from their research papers so as not to attract attention in America.

Critical theory was, from the start, an unremitting attack on Western institutions and norms in order to tear them down. 

It next became a short step to critical legal theory in the late 1970s and 1980s. CLT built on critical theory’s idea that the world is based on systems of power and claims that American law is systemically oppressive.

From there it was another short step to Critical Race Theory which further claimed that America is systemically racist, and that this racism produced an alliance between working-class whites and the oppressor capitalist class, which prevented working-class solidarity. 

When followed to its logical conclusion, CRT is destructive and rejects the fundamental ideas on which our constitutional republic is based. Applying the philosophy would violate a multitude of American civil rights laws by treating people differently according to race.
