Iowa Teachers Forced Into Mandatory CRT Training, Told to Classify MAGA as White Supremacy: Report

Western Journal

The lies of critical race theory are being spread through various outlets across the country. One place where lies about “inherent racism” have been heavily promulgated is inside public schools.

According to Turning Point USA Chief Creative Officer Benny Johnson, an area education agency in Iowa has expanded its definition of racism to include practically anyone who disagrees with it politically.

Johnson tweeted a picture on Tuesday of a chart that was reportedly shown to teachers and that originated with the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency. (Iowa’s area education agencies are not school districts, but rather aim to “work as partners with children, families, and educators to ensure equitable, efficient, and effective educational services that prepare all Iowa children for a life well-lived,” according to Iowa’s Area Education Agencies.)

The chart provides what it calls “examples of racism.” Some of them are classified as “overt white supremacy,” and they are mostly things that any rational person would oppose. Examples include “lynching,” “hate crimes” and “swastikas.”

Underneath these examples are an array of ideas the chart defines as “covert white supremacy.” One of the ideas in this category is the phrase “Make America Great Again.”

The suggestion that former President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan is inherently “white supremacy” is absolutely ridiculous. The left cannot even provide evidence that Trump himself is a white supremacist, let alone every person who supported him.

Johnson also pointed out that Trump won Iowa in the 2020 election by more than eight percentage points.

This means teachers were reportedly being told to define the majority of people in their state as “covert white supremacists.”

“This is NOT education,” Johnson wrote. “It is naked political vengeance using the state education system and our children’s educators.”

As Johnson pointed out, this type of training underscores how dangerous the ideas contained in critical race theory can be. The theory suggests that every white person is inherently racist, whether they know it or not.

The goal of this type of training is not to eradicate racism, and it clearly deepens racial divides much more than it heals them. However, Democrats have a vested interest in convincing white people they are inherently evil.

If voters actually believe they are evil, Democrats can utilize that guilt to convince them to support leftist policies. By classifying “Make America Great Again” as “white supremacy,” this area education agency has accidentally said the quiet part out loud.

Other terms defined as “covert white supremacy” by this chart include “claiming reverse racism,” “denial of racism” and “not believing experiences of people of color.”

In other words, every white person must admit not only that they are racist, but also agree that it is impossible for a person of color to ever be racist. Those are both disgusting and completely false implications.

In addition to the chart, teachers were reportedly given definitions of terms including anti-racist and critical race theory. Johnson argued the very definition of CRT in this presentation explains how dangerous it is.

“Unlike traditional civil rights, which embraces … step by step progress, critical race theory questions the very foundations of the liberal order … and principles of constitutional law,” the definition read.

On June 8, Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill prohibiting “the idea that one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex [and] that the United States of America and the state of Iowa are fundamentally or systemically racist or sexist” from being included in mandatory diversity training, KCCI-TV reported.

While Johnson did not specify the date on which the area education agency’s reported training took place, he said that it would not have been allowed under this new law.

On the other hand, Reynolds issued a statement on the incident following an inquiry from Johnson.

“This is indoctrination, not education,” Reynolds said. “And it’s exactly why I took action to ban teaching divisive concepts and critical race theory in Iowa schools. Kids need to be taught how to think and not what to think.”

The alleged anti-Republican training from this area education agency is a very fitting example of the ways Democrats exploit race for their own benefit. This type of partisan brainwashing should be banned in every public school across the country.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
