Far-left Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib claims parents who speak out against critical race theory are “white supremacists” who are trying to ethnically cleanse America.
“We can’t allow them to whitewash history,” Rep. Tlaib said at an online meeting of the Oakland County Democrat Party African American Committee.
“Their intention is to try to, you know, expand on white supremacy.”
Her remarks came in response to a question from Alexandria Hughes who defined critical race theory as something that “examines the systematic effects of white supremacy in America.”
Breitbart.com reports: Hughes then went on to ask “how [candidates] will use your power to make sure K through 12 schools educators are able to build curriculums that bring awareness to the history of white supremacy, layers of racism, bias, and how that currently exists today?”
Tlaib said, defending an ideology that has been soundly debunked by actual historians:
“It is happening,” she claimed, referencing parents who speak out against racial indoctrination taking place at their children’s schools. “They’re showing up at our school board meetings right now. They are intentional about making sure that we’re not speaking truth to our children.”
She said that the Detroit Public Schools system’s decision to “take away whatever history books they had” in favor of “implement[ing] history through an African American lens” has the potential to “completely change the trajectory of our country — and so it is incredibly important.”
Tlaib also erroneously argued that some parents do not want teachers telling students that “slavery was bad.”
