a Postmodernist and Marxist construct based on Critical theory that teaches that race is not genetic. Instead, race is a social construct and a basis for political struggles in the fight for racial justice.
Critical race theory provided the foundation for claims that the Founding Fathers are “racist.” Critical race theory was devised by Derrick Bell, Barack Obama’s favorite Harvard professor, in the early 1980s. CRT exemplifies Lenin’s strategy as applied to race. According to Discover the Networks:
Critical race theory contends that America is permanently racist to its core, and that consequently the nation’s legal structures are, by definition, racist and invalid … members of “oppressed” racial groups are entitled—in fact obligated—to determine for themselves which laws and traditions have merit and are worth observing. …
Bell’s theory is in turn an innovation of Critical Theory, which was developed by Marxist thinkers of the Frankfurt School in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1923. The Institute’s left-wing scholars fled Hitler’s Germany in the 1930s, relocating to Columbia University in New York. Critical Theory teaches a view that all aspects of Western society are discredited, and this view forms the foundation of what we know today as political correctness. One of its most famous purveyors was the Frankfurt School’s Herbert Marcuse, longtime associate of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Julian Bond. Marcuse invented the concept of “partisan tolerance,” that is, tolerance for leftist ideas and intolerance of all others. The Southern Poverty Law Center applied Marcuse’s strategy in developing its “Hate Watch” list, and Rules for Radicals author Saul Alinsky used it in his own life’s work.
