Trump said lay down your life to stop critical race theory. But what about…Oxford commas?


Trump views critical race theory in schools as an existential threat

Critical race theory – which, again, I can in no way identify or define – must be stopped, because thinking about things critically sounds like a pathway to hating America.

I was told by former President Donald Trump that I must be willing to lay down my life to prevent my son Tanner from going to school and being turned socialist by critical race theory. 

At a rally last weekend, Trump said: “Getting critical race theory out of our schools is not just a matter of values, it’s also a matter of national survival. We have no choice, the fate of any nation ultimately depends upon the willingness of its citizens to lay down, and they must do this, lay down their very lives to defend their country. If we allow the Marxists and Communists and Socialists to teach our children to hate America, there will be no one left to defend our flag or to protect our great country or its freedom.”
