Spanish philosopher George Santayana in 1905 famously wrote: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” In a 1948 speech to the British House of Commons, Sir Winston Churchill paraphrased Santayana: “Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.” The aphorism is a chilling warning.

Even more chilling?

Those who do remember the ominous warning or have learned from it — fully aware that “the masses” have not —and as a result count on it working all over again — against an unwitting population or society precisely because it’s true.

As reported by Fox News, a Virginia mom who suffered under Communist Mao Zedong’s intentionally and brutally misnomered Cultural Revolution before immigrating to the U.S., blasted Virginia school board members in a powerful speech at a public meeting on Tuesday over their steadfast support of the controversial critical race theory.

Van Fleet, who was able to immigrate to the U.S. when she was 26, slammed the board for teaching kids to loathe America and its history, drawing parallels with Communist China.

“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools. You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history.

“The Communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people. The only difference is they used class instead of race.”

As Van Fleet continued to describe life under the purge, the “identical traits” between the Cultural Revolution and critical race theory became chillingly apparent.
