On the latest episode of The Charlie Kirk Show, Judicial Watch CEO Tom Fitton revealed shocking information about the United States Army teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) to West Point cadets.
“It’s frankly no surprise,” Fitton said, touching on the Biden administration’s obsession to incorporate Critical Race Theory in governance programs.
The documents were exclusively obtained by the government watchdog group after it filed two federal lawsuits against the Biden administration in order to obtain information on the highly controversial teachings being taught in the US Military. The lawsuits were a result of the Department of Defense (DOD) refusing to comply with requests.
“Our cadets, our rising officers, are being force-fed this CRT material that talks about…white privilege, black victimization, white oppression. There’s language in there talking about slavery in modern America, suggesting that blacks are facing slavery today,” Fitton told Kirk.
“It’s anti-Americanism,” Fitton said. “It’s repackaged Marxism. They’re not being trained in it as a warning that this is what we combat as a military.”
Fitton said that the teaching of Critical Race Theory to our US servicemembers is the “internal undermining of our military culture and our constitutional system, in the heart of the Army, the West Point.”
West Point Cadets are receiving lessons on CRT, which include lessons on addressing “whiteness” as well as the application of CRT when answering questions, according to the 600-page documents obtained by Judicial Watch.
“In order to understand racial inequality and slavery, it is first necessary to address whiteness,” one slide reads.
The slide goes on to claim that “whiteness” is “a location of structural advantage, of race privilege,” is a “standpoint or place from which white people look at themselves and the rest of society,” and refers “to a set of cultural practices that are usually unmarked and unnamed.”
“The cadets are expected to explain themselves as using the language of CRT in the debate about affirmative action,” Fitton explained. “It’s absurd. It’s a revolutionary approach to undermining everything America is about.”
Fitton asked how the United States can be one cohesive Army when white servicemembers are being taught that they are oppressors, while black servicemembers are told that they’re victims equivalent to slaves.
“Biden is responsible, the Secretary of Defense is responsible, and the military leadership is responsible,” Fitton said. “Shame on them for allowing it to happen.”
