Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin testified just weeks ago before the House Armed Services Committee that critical race theory is not being taught, pushed, or embraced in the military.
Was the Biden administration trying to gaslight the American public?
Because a U.S. Air Force Academy associate professor quickly let the cat out of the bag in this Washington Post opinion piece that it most certainly is.
“As a professor of political science … I teach critical race theories to our nation’s future military leaders because it is vital that cadets understand the history of the racism that has shaped both foreign and domestic policy,” she wrote.
U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn called out political science professor, Lynne Chandler García, for bragging about her deception.
Critical race theory is a form of Marxist critical theory which views all human activity through the prism of race, rather than class, and teaches that race is the defining feature of our society, Lamborn said.
“I oppose teaching our cadets that the country they serve is fundamentally racist. Critical race theory is an anti-American ideology rooted in Marxism and has no place in any of our service academies.”
The Colorado Springs Gazette reports García has worked at the academy since 2017.
She claims the U.S. military was racist during its infancy because George Washington is said to have opposed recruiting free black men and slaves into the Revolutionary War, and therefore racism “ingrained in the system from the beginning.”
However, as many as 8,000 black men are believed to have fought for the American colonies in the Revolutionary War.
In the famous painting of Washington crossing the Delaware, a Black man in uniform in front of the general is believed to be Prince Whipple, Washington’s aide and body guard who was emancipated during the war.
