    Why a "Thinking Democrat" is an Oxymoron.

    The democrats in the House voted down a bill that would ban funding for segregated learning and CRT in schools, despite the bill being introduced by a black man who explained how destructive and divisive CRT is to our society.

    “The Critical Race Theorists believe we are defined solely by our skin color. They believe that America’s institutions preserves white supremacy. Some believe our nation is hopelessly racist. To try to make this divisive theory understandable, they put people in groups like race, color, and national origin. In doing so, students are taught to judge others based on their appearance. In the 1960’s, this was called pure racism,” he continued.

    This was the Democratic response to Owens:

    In response, Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Jim McGovern entered an article from the left-wing site Media Matters into the congressional record.

    “Republicans and their friends in the media need a new scare tactic because they don’t want to talk about the economy or how we crushed the virus. We are not going to debate on whether racism exists in America because it does. And we are not going to debate whether we should teach our kids racism is wrong, we should,” McGovern claimed.
    Doubly dumb. First, he cites the media. Second, he gets CRT wrong.

    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

    I didn't know the economy was doing well and we "crushed the virus". Good to know.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    He got that wrong three. Democrats are out of touch with reality.

    You deserve one of these just for the thread title.
