Yesterday, my colleague Jeff Charles wrote an article that caused a bit of a stir. He titled it “Critical Race Theory Is Going to Win,” in which he noted that critical race theory (CRT) is an idea that has caught on with the left and that the right hasn’t done, or won’t do, the necessary things to stop it. He wrote that while making it illegal in some states to force on others, conservatives haven’t brought forth the necessary ideas that solve problems CRT claims it will.

For instance, one of the things the extreme left wants to do is abolish the nuclear family. In fact, it was part of the Black Lives Matter mission statement until it became too dicey to have that agenda item in the open.
