Free to Offend: Episode 1
Nevada Policy Communications Director Michael Schaus talks with Nevada Policy Vice President Robert Fellner about the concept of “critical race theory”—the academic theory behind the progressive movement’s war against “institutional” and “systemic” racism.
In short, the theory redefines racism to mean any events or actions that have disparate outcomes between races, or any outcomes in which participation by race does not perfectly match that race’s proportion to the general population. This redefinition fuels actual racism in many ways—one of which is the requirement that people be defined as members of a racial group rather than as unique individuals. The so-called “anti-racists” also believe this redefined notion of racism permeates virtually every institution and system in modern society, and that it is their job to root out and identify these invisible acts of racism.
Fellner argues this belief system is doing far more damage to our society than most people realize. It’s not just the rioting and protesting that has been spurred on by this school of thought, governments and businesses are also adopting the radical (and ironically racist) principles behind this cultish academic theory.
Schaus and Fellner dig deep to find out what, exactly, this theory proposes. And, more importantly, how it is being weaponized against well-intended Americans to restrict their rights, their freedom of thought and drive political intolerance.
