On Friday, Senator Ted (Cancun) Cruz spoke to a group of ‘patriots’ (MAGAts) at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference where he boliviated and ignorantly compared the Critical Race Theory (CRT) to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
“Critical race theory says every white person is a racist,” the senator said. “Critical race theory says America’s fundamentally racist and irredeemably racist. Critical race theory seeks to turn us against each other and if someone has a different color skin, seeks to make us hate that person.”
Cruz continued, “And let me tell you right now, critical race theory is bigoted, it is a lie and it is every bit as racist as the Klansmen in white sheets.”Newsweek:
Of course, the ‘patriots (MAGAts) applauded Cruz’ ignorant and inaccurate comments but, these are the same MAGAts that booed and heckled former VP Pence when he delivered his speech.
Both the NAACP and Democratic National Committee chairman Jaime Harris have criticized Cruz for his ignorant and erroneous comparison:
Currently, CRT has become the new Wing Nut bogeyman resulting in several Red States working diligently to ban teaching the theory in our public schools.
