Front Page Magazine published a good article about the evolution of CRT indoctrination over the last couple years at the USAFA. We have already discussed some of the incidents covered in the first part of the article, but there are many other shocking examples.
Of particular concern is the role of USAFA’s Center for Character and Leadership Development in leading the “critical conversations.” The article points out one example: “This year, a professor at the Center wrote an article in the journal calling not for a “post-racial mindset,” but an “inherently anti-racism mindset” where “anti-racism” means accepting delusional fantasies of America as a “white supremacist” society.”
An article by two other professors stated: “American freedom…is unequal and differentiated, especially by race, ethnicity, gender” and urged that the military should not be an apolitical institution, but that the role of military leaders should be to help soldiers “understand and confront” political debates. Otherwise “American military leaders may miss an opportunity to contribute constructively to a national debate on these important matters.”
The Superintendent, Lt Gen Richard M. Clark (USAFA’s first black superintendent), “described his son going to a BLM protest and suggested that much of the Air Force might feel the same way. “There’s probably an anger that we don’t even know about,” he suggested.” This information was taken from an Air Force Magazine article 2 July 2020, where Gen Clark was reported to say about his son’s attendance at the BLM protest in Washington DC,“But I am encouraged by what my kids saw: That this is everyone’s solution, and that there are a lot of people who are angered by this, not just Black people, but a lot of people who want to do something about it.”
The article also describes alarming academic classes, “Air Force Academy courses like Class, Race, and Ethnicity in Society, and Gender, Sexuality, and Society, offer familiar narratives attacking Martin Luther King’s vision of a colorblind society as racist, and promoting the racist idea of skin privilege. And while it’s not surprising to see identity politics embedded into English and Behavioral Science, the “socio-cultural” element in USAFA’s History department is almost as bad with students being asked to analyze WW1 through the lenses of “colonialism, race” and “gender”. Race, gender, and class are a constant academic theme at USAFA. And race and gender are linked to leadership and accomplishment when it comes to ethics and values.”
a. America is the most diverse nation in the world with millions yearning to come here of all ethnicities, hardly evidence that we are a “white supremacist” society.
b. A bedrock principle of our Republic since our founding is our distinctly apolitical military.
c. BLM’s claims of police murdering thousands of unarmed blacks is completely false, so supporting them is without merit and harms blacks of the inner city the most. In 2020, police shot and killed 457 whites, 241 black and 169 hispanics and 154 other/unknown. The vast majority of all these shootings were justified due to the deadly threat posed by the suspect to either police or members of the public. DOJ’s data shows less than 20 unarmed blacks are shot and killed by police each year and many of those were still justified due to the suspect having other weapons; only a handful were deemed to be unjustified. During this same period the NYPost reported that 8,600 blacks were murdered (90% killed by other blacks), up more than a 1,000 from 2019. NY Post Statistics
