It’s ‘Communist’ Not ‘Critical Race Theory,’ Folks 

It is hard to believe, but Joe Biden may not even be America’s most accomplished plagiarist. The “antiracist” radicals can stake a claim, given their own renown and remuneration and their ruination of others.

By plagiarizing the tenets of communist China’s Cultural Revolution, the anti-racist grifters have turned white progressives’ self-loathing masochism into a veritable pinata of perks, power, profit, and tenured sinecures in the bowels of academia and corporations. 

Consider this excerpt from the 1966 People’s Daily op-ed by Chen Boda, “Sweep Away All Monsters and Demons” that kicked off the carnage of Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution:

The proletarian cultural revolution is aimed not only at demolishing all the old ideology and culture and all the old customs and habits, which, fostered by the exploiting classes, have poisoned the minds of the people for thousands of years, but also at creating and fostering among the masses an entirely new ideology and culture and entirely new customs and habits — those of the proletariat. This great task of transforming customs and habits is without any precedent in human history. As for all the heritage, customs and habits of the feudal and bourgeois classes, the proletarian world outlook must be used to subject them to thoroughgoing criticism. It takes time to clear away the evil habits of the old society from among the people. Nevertheless, our experience since liberation proves that the transformation of customs and habits can be accelerated if the masses are fully mobilized, the mass line is implemented and the transformation is made into a genuine mass movement.

Sound familiar? Perhaps, the following will clarify matters:

The WOKE revolution is aimed not only at demolishing SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES, which, fostered by the WHITE SUPREMACISTS, have poisoned the minds of the people SINCE 1619, but also at creating and fostering among the masses an entirely new ANTIRACISM and EQUITY—those of the ANTIRACISTS. This great task of transforming SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES is without any precedent in human history. As for all the SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES of WHITE SUPREMACISTS and PEOPLE OF COLOR WHO THINK WHITE, the ANTIRACIST world outlook must be used to subject them to thoroughgoing CANCELLATIONS. It takes time to clear away the SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES of WHITE SUPREMACISTS from among the people. Nevertheless, our experience since liberation proves that the transformation of SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES can be accelerated if the WOKE are fully mobilized, the CRITICAL RACE THEORY is implemented and the ANTIRACIST transformation is made into a genuine mass movement.

While terms and usages are malleable—such as “antiracist” for “anti-rightist,” “whiteness” for “bourgeois,” and so on, ad nauseam—these left-wing grifters have merely substituted race for class. Ergo, the “antiracists” ideological Trojan horse’s ass, critical race theory, is really just Communist race theory. It has been plagiarized from Communism and weaponized to prey upon Americans’ abhorrence of racism and prejudice to cancel everything our nation cherishes, and then usher in a miasmatic cesspool of totalitarian socialism or Communism. 

For those who doubt, ponder the following from Chairman Mao’s February 27, 1957 speech to commence the “Let One Hundred Flowers Bloom” campaign, “On the Correct Handling of Contradictions Among the People”: “What should our policy be towards non-Marxist ideas? As far as unmistakable counterrevolutionaries and saboteurs of the socialist cause are concerned, the matter is easy, we simply deprive them of their freedom of speech.”

That’s right. The mendaciously self-declared “antiracist,” Communist race theory grifters even plagiarized cancel culture.
