Constitutional scholar Mark Levin hosts the third largest nationally syndicated radio program in America on the SiriusXM Patriot Channel and over 300 stations across the country. His show on Thursday, 28 April 2022 was particularly informative, covering the long march of Marxism through our government education system, culminating with Critical Race Theory indoctrination in our classrooms today.

Here is the show summary from The Mark Levin show, Thursday, 28 April 2022:

On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, the progressive movement is the application of Marxism to American society. Progressive intellectual John Dewey once wrote at great length about how well Stalin was doing with government-run education. Dewy felt that teaching subjects without a social purpose uniting children in support of their government. Dewey enjoyed the support of Democrats and Republicans like Teddy Roosevelt. The goal of the progressives has always been to control what is taught in the classroom and this is why small children are being indoctrinated against capitalism and success and to reject the family structure they come from. This is precisely what is taking place in our country today.

Then, President Biden says that when your kids are in the classroom they’re no longer your kids, in effect, suggesting that they now belong to the government and the teacher’s union. Millions from the American Rescue plan went to schools for Critical Race Theory training in the name of the COVID pandemic. Kudos to all the parents and other citizens standing up against tyranny.

Later, Sec. Mayorkas has proposed a ‘disinformation governance board’ at the Dept. of Homeland Security. All members of the free press should object to the creation of a government ministry of truth that decides what is true and what is false.

All of this while the border remains open, and the economy shrinks by 1.4%. Afterward, filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza joins the show to discuss his latest film 2000 Mules which chronicles the actions of ballot mules delivering harvested ballots to COVID ballot boxes during the 2020 election. D'Souza explained how vote stash-houses work within leftwing democrat districts.

Is Critical Race Theory Being Taught in Our Schools? Here Are the Facts, by Douglas Blai, Daily Signal, April 28, 2022:

... Jonathan Butcher, an education expert at The Heritage Foundation, says critical race theory isn’t just now showing up in classrooms. He contends it’s been there for decades.

“[In the] 1980s, 1990s, you’re having teachers become trained in the idea that America is systemically racist, that we should be teaching students not so much about what they share as Americans, but about their identities, the things that separate them and make them different from each other,” Butcher explained.

Butcher found the trend so troubling, he wrote a book, released April 19, "Splintered: Critical Race Theory and the Progressive War on Truth," to help expose just how dangerous the ideology is....

Well, if you listen to the words that the students, and even professors, use in their shout-downs, in their demonstrations, in their letters demanding certain racially charged policies, they are using the very words and phrases from the critical race theory lexicon.

The point here is that we don’t just have a free speech crisis on college campuses, we have a racially charged political environment that is trying to view everything around us as the result of some sort of racist intent, and that’s at the core of critical race theory....

... critical race theory is based on critical legal theory, which came in the 1960s, really, 1970s, which itself was built on something even older called critical theory.

Critical theory is from Germany in the 1920s, and it’s this revitalization of Marxism... you’ve got a group of Marxists in Germany who wanted to add Marxism to culture, not just make it a conversation about the conflict between economic classes....

When the critical theorists came to America in 1937 and they settled at Columbia University, they began to affect professors and students in all sorts of areas of study. Law was the first, and so you have critical legal theorists...

Critical pedagogy—which is the idea that you take this critical legal theory, critical race theory, and you add it to teacher training programs—came about around the same time....

That’s where, as you move into the 2000s and you start to see policies from—first, Barack Obama’s administration...

What does critical race theory lead to?... There was a headline in recent months about, out in Denver, there was a public school that made their playground only available to black families for a period of time. These kinds of policies are, in fact, racially discriminatory. They violate the Civil Rights Act....
