A Virginia mom who grew up under Chairman Mao’s brutal communist regime has angrily ripped critical race theory as being “the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.”
“Critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism — it should have no place in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet said to cheers and clapping at a Tuesday meeting of the progressive Loudoun County School Board.
“You are now teaching, training our children, to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history,” she told the meeting of the district already bitterly divided for pushing the policy that critics accuse of itself being racist.
“Growing up in Mao’s China, all of this seems very familiar,” insisted the mom, who finally fled China when she was 26.
“The Communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people. The only difference is they used class instead of race,” she said.
