This is General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff talking about Critical Race Theory before Congress:
White Rage. He reads Critical Race Theory so he can understand White Rage and why January 6th happened.
Critical Race Theory cannot and will not accurately explain January 6th, it will only make the situation worse. Which seems to be the point.
The January 6th protesters are very explicit about why they stormed the Capitol. They believed that Trump lost due to fuckery.
The exact sort of fuckery ranges from the belief that large numbers of fraudulent ballots were counted to all the sudden and unilateral changes in voting rules due to the pandemic favored Biden and was tantamount to changing the rules in the middle of the game.
Other forms of fuckery, such as social media and media organizations actively suppressing stories unfavorable to Biden and going overwhelmingly against Trump were also at play. How many stories recently have we found out with actual evidence that Trump was right and everyone else was wrong?
On its face, it’s just hard to understand how the guy who packed venues to standing room only lost to a candidate who mounted the laziest campaign in history and has all the signs of senility, and the guy who lost gained votes over his first victory.
I have said it before and I will say it again, at the heart of every form of political extremism is a seed of legitimate grievance. If that legitimate grievance is not addressed, it will grow and bear extremist fruit.
The Democrats spent four years complaining that Trump was an illegitimate President and stole the election by collaborating with Russia, but the moment that Trump supporters say “there seems to be fuckery here and we want you to prove Trump lost to our satisfaction” it’s a threat to democracy and our country.
So without a doubt, nobody in power on the Left wants to know why January 6th happened. They need another excuse that takes the question of election fuckery out and further delegitimizes the protesters.
Critical Race Theory and the idea of White Rage does that perfectly. According to CRT, White People are uniquely fragile and when they don’t get their way at the expense of minorities, the White People can’t take it and fly into White Rage and become destructive.
And understand it is vital to teach this to our military so our military can continue to defend DC.
You need the military to believe that anyone who opposes a Leftist administration is doing so because they are fragile White People going into a fit of White Rage.
The very last thing you want is a member of the military to say: “You know, these people make a good point. Our President does have pudding for brains and seems to want to nuke Americans more than China.”
For a military to be useful against the citizens of its own nation, the military needs to be indoctrinated not to feel empathy for its fellow citizens.
The Germans were fed all sorts of Antisemitic propaganda.
The Soviets were conditioned to hate the Kulaks.
Mao’s Red Guard were encouraged to turn in family members who were not loyal to Mao.
The soldiers who are clearly ideologically opposed to the Left are being purged out. The rest are going to be taught that White Americans who opposed the Left are dangerous because of their White Rage.
General Milley is defending teaching CRT in the military because he wants a military that has been trained to see American citizens of a particular demographic (non-Woke, Trump-supporting, White people) as the enemy.
