Hierarchical Elites Use Critical Race Theory To Gain Riches, Power

Critical race theory is just another scheme for hierarchical elites to get rich quick and gain bureaucratic power, said journalist Christopher Rufo on “The Truth with Lisa Boothe” Wednesday.

“Like any good Marxists throughout history, the people in charge of the regime or the ideology always manage to get rich,” Rufo said. “You see Ibram Kendi striking multimillion-dollar deals left and right. … This ideology is self-serving for elites. So people like Ibram Kendi, people like Nikole Hannah-Jones, people like the Secretary of Education, they can use this ideology to secure their own status and power as left-wing elites, while really offering nothing to the tens of millions of poor kids, of any racial background in our country. Critical race theory offers them nothing, offers them no means of improving their lives, no means of making their way up the ladder.”

Rufo said this is “a moral crime” that is now cemented in American institutions through “nice, soft-sounding words” such as “diversity, equity, and inclusion” but is actually “a kind of mechanism and the bureaucracy to launder in critical race theory.”

“I think that the ideology is certainly dominant and well-established in the universities, that’s old news,” he said. “But what I think is, I’ll give them credit, their stroke of genius, the critical race theory supporters, is that they’ve turned their ideology into a bureaucracy.”

Rufo said there are a lot of contributing factors that play into certain disparities but critical race theory “flattens every explanation to a single explanation, which is always and forever racism.”

“They’ve changed from just pure theory to actual political power by cementing themselves in the bureaucracy as diversity, equity, and inclusion,” he said.

Rufo reported on Wednesday that the African American Policy Forum “has created a strategic plan to mobilize left-wing media and K-12 teachers against me.”

The slides obtained by Rufo detail his background along with other “frontline spokespeople” in the fight against canonizing the new racism of critical race theory.

“It’s quite interesting: in the guidebook, critical race theory founder Kimberlé Crenshaw admits that CRT ‘originated in law schools,’ but was adopted by ‘K-12 teachers’ and applied to the public school curriculum,” Rufo noted.

He also said the memo “is filled with the hysterical language of the Left.”
