Mom who survived Mao’s China calls critical race theory America’s Cultural Revolution:
A Virginia mom who grew up under Chairman Mao’s brutal Communist regime has angrily ripped critical race theory as “the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.”
“Critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism — it should have no place in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet said to cheers and applause at a Tuesday meeting of the progressive Loudoun County School Board.
“You are now teaching, training our children, to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history,” she told the meeting of the district already bitterly divided for pushing the policy that critics accuse of itself being racist.
“Growing up in Mao’s China, all of this seems very familiar,” insisted the mom, who finally fled China when she was 26.

“Small L” liberalism, which has been central to American history, has brought together free people since the end of World War II. It’s the same liberalism that unified the free world against the Soviet Union in the latter half of the 20th century. Liberal principles served as a rallying cry when millions fought against repressive socialist regimes.
Liberalism gives us a standard for how we view our fellow man. It teaches that people should be viewed as individuals, rather than members of a tribe defined by their immutable characteristics. Liberalism maintains that every human being has dignity and should be judged by the content of their character and individual choices --->READ MORE HERE
