Measuring an American Dilemma

Charles Murray
Charles Murray

Charles Murray’s just published book, Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America, comes just as Neo-Marxist Critical Race Theory (CRT) doctrines have become major social justice engineering ideology and policy for the Biden Administration and Democrat Party leadership.

Murray is one of the most renowned and courageous political scientists in the U.S. and the world. He has a BA degree from Harvard and MS and PhD degrees from MIT. He is also the author of Losing Ground (1984), The Bell Curve (1994), and Coming Apart (2012), and Human Diversity (2020) 

CRT is not a cure for racism; it is racism of the most vicious, hateful, and unforgiving kind—it is flagrantly anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-family, anti-capitalist, anti-history, and knows no truth or moral standard but power.  CRT is an immediate threat to our military effectiveness and the integrity of our educational institutions. It is a protection racket that is corrupting American corporations and university administrations, and a divisive threat to public order and safety.

Truth Suppressed Is Still the Truth

H.K. Edgerton, Asheville, NC

If you Google “Black Confederates,” you will know a lot about Google’s politics. It should also be obvious that there is a tremendous and undoubtedly well-funded effort to dismiss and ridicule the idea that anything more than a tiny minority of blacks would willingly resist and even take up arms against the Northern invasion of the South from 1861 to 1865. The most recent escalation of this demonization of the South and anyone connected to its resistance to Northern domination coincides with the emergence of Neo-Marxist Critical Race Theory (CRT) and woke identity politics, but it is also a continuation of propagandistic false historical narratives on the causes and conduct of the Civil War and postwar Reconstruction policies.  This brand of identity politics garners votes by inciting racial tensions and promoting attitudes of militant hostility to win elections and advance political agendas.  Suppression of important Civil War truths and the important role of Black Confederates in the war serve anti-American agendas.

The Battle for Scriptural Authority

In Voddie T. Baucham’s just released book, Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism’s Looming Catastrophe, he makes a plea to the Church:

“I believe we are being duped by an ideology bent on our demise. This ideology has used our guilt and our good and godly desire for reconciliation and justice as a means through which to introduce destructive heresies. We cannot embrace, modify, baptize, or Christianize these ideologies. We must identify, resist, and repudiate them. We cannot be held hostage through emotional blackmail, and name-calling. Instead, we must:”

 “See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.”  - Colossians 2:8

The Poisoned Chalice of Critical Race Theory

Fault Lines (cover of Voddie Baucham new book)
Fault Lines (cover of Voddie Baucham new book)

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a Neo-Marxist ideological framework and sociological and psychological toolset for undermining the cultural, social, moral, economic, legal, and political foundations of a people, nation, or government.  

CRT’s primary tool is to exploit or even to fabricate racial grievances, which are built into social injustice narratives supporting Marxist cultural and political objectives. These narratives may have some truth to them, but they are most often built primarily upon subjective “lived experience” and blatant falsehoods that contradict objective facts and reason. Marxists believe that power is the only truth, so subjective “lived experience” and its supporting ideology and train of lies always trump objective truth or moral protest.  This borders on post-modernist philosophies denying objective truth. The Marxist perpetrators of these false narratives often claim that the narratives are a “higher truth” that cannot be seen or understood by white people or their allies, because they don’t have the “lived experience.”

Remembering John C. Calhoun

John C. Calhoun, 1822
John C. Calhoun, 1822

In 1830, President Andrew Jackson through Senator Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri, arranged for an elaborate Democratic Party dinner to celebrate on April 13, the birthday of Thomas Jefferson and the Jeffersonian principles of the new Democratic Party.  This was held at Brown’s Indian Queen Hotel in Washington.  Political tension was increasing because of the effects of the substantial and controversial tariff increases that had been passed in 1828.  These tariffs favored Northern manufacturers and punished farmers, especially those exporting agricultural products. The tariffs were having the most devastating economic impact on the cotton producing states of the South.  Among these, South Carolina, was suffering the most.
