RUSH: From Fox News: "A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors." This story is from a couple of days ago. It got lost in all the gun control news. I'm a little confused by all the outrage here, 'cause I thought this was a major theme in the Obama reelection campaign, and maybe his first term, and that is all of the oppression by the majority. I think it's a fundamental element of who Obama is. I think it's the way he was raised. This is not news. I've shared this with you before.
I think Obama was raised and educated believing that this country was not founded morally and in a just way, that it was founded by the 1% for the 1%. The 1% arranged the system so they could take away whatever they wanted from everybody else, get rich and stay rich and then pass it on to their families, friends and connections, and then deny wealth and prosperity and success to everybody else. This resulted in a class system and minorities got stepped on and taken advantage of and used and worse by their oppressors. I think that's how Obama looks at colonialism. I don't think, just in my mind, there's any question about it.
So this story, when I say I don't know what the surprise is, is because I think this is a major theme in both the Obama campaign and the regime.
"The 'American Diversity' class was taught to students at Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin." And one of the parents reported to Fox News that it was a white privilege class. That's what the class was basically oriented toward, white privilege. "'They’re teaching white guilt,' one parent told Fox News. 'They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, "You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed."'"
Isn't that part of the liberal message today? I mean, Jamie Foxx and what's-his-face, Samuel L. Jackson, as they go out on their promo tour for the movie Django Unchained, isn't that the notion, that there is still slavery? That there is still oppression? Various black athletes have said so in recent years.
"The parent, who asked not to be identified, has an 18-year-old son who was enrolled in the class and became alarmed after she looked at some of the handouts provided to the students. 'I felt it was indoctrination,' she said. 'This is a radical left agenda and ideology that is now embedded in our school.'" It is, and has been for a while. It's called the multicultural curriculum, and the multicultural curriculum teaches this. The multicultural curriculum is 25 or 30 years old, if not older than that, and it teaches anti-Western civilization. It teaches that white European settlers came here and started causing all the trouble. White Europeans brought with them racism, sexism, environmental destruction, homophobia, all of that. That is taught.
What's happened here is a parent just caught on to it. And I think what happened is the reason the parent caught onto it is because they brought it out from behind the curtain. This has been taught for a long time. Now they're just being up front and honest, the teacher is, about what is being taught rather than subtly indoctrinating the kids. They're just being up front and honest about what they're teaching and what it is. And they're calling it white privilege, and they're calling it oppression and they're saying it still exists and that there's segregation, and they divide the class up that way.
"The parent said the students were taught 'if you’re white, you’re oppressing. If you’re non white, you’ve been a victim.'" Yeah. Isn't that liberalism today? I don't mean to sound know-it-all. I'm just saying it's not a surprise to me. In fact, I'm a little bit encouraged that a parent finally sees what's going on, and called attention to it.
