Leftist editorial board blasts NM parents’ concerns over CRT as ‘fake outrage’

On Monday, the Santa Fe New Mexican editorial board blasted New Mexico parents seeking to have a seat at the table regarding their children’s education, invoking the nail-biter gubernatorial election in Virginia, which has kept parental rights at the forefront.

The editorial board noted how the Republican nominee, Glenn Youngkin, featured a mother in his television ad who did not want her son to be forced to read a graphic book called “Beloved.” But the New Mexican board defended the book, writing, “It is a challenging book that describes the realities of slavery, but nothing beyond what an AP class can handle.” 

According to parents who read the book, it “contains incest, rape, pedophilia, graphic sex, extreme violence, sexual abuse, physical/emotional abuse, infanticide, and an extensive amount of profanity including lots of the F word.” 

But the New Mexican board claims Youngkin’s focus on parents after his Democrat opponent, Terry McAuliffe said parents should not tell schools what to teach, is just the GOP using education as a “wedge issue.” 

“From mobs opposing mask mandates in schools to irate crowds demanding ‘critical race theory’ not be taught, the goal is to make and keep parents angry. There is not a critical race theory curriculum in K-12 education. There is, however, a greater willingness to tackle tough subjects and teach fact instead of myth,” claims the board.

“In New Mexico, where we thankfully have been spared much of this fake outrage, the proposed new social studies standards are being attacked as part of a so-called liberal indoctrination of students. One victim of a concerted campaign against the standards is an in-person hearing,” added the editorial board. 

“Fake outrage” is now apparently what liberals are calling pleas from truly concerned parents, guardians, and community members who want to have a seat at the table regarding their child’s education. 

Regarding New Mexico’s proposed updated standards to the social studies curriculum released by embattled alleged sexual predator Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s administration, Critical Race Theory and other extreme anti-American measures are being proposed. A hearing will take place on November 12, but concerned community members are encouraged to reach out to the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED). Find out more on the NMPED website.

  1. I’m wondering how they can say there is no CRT when anyone can get on Left-wing websites and see that it is real and is being taught gleefully in schools around the country. Many school websites, especially the elite schools back East proclaim they are teaching it. Because they are sneakier in the New Mexico schools, and maybe call CRT another name, doesn’t mean they aren’t teaching it. And around the country, they have had filthy books in schools and public libraries for children since the late 1980s.

  2. History is full of so called RACE Theory ? NASDAP ( aka NAZIS ) Communist doctrine used it to divide , but the key word is THEORY meaning lacking facts or supportive evidence , a conclusion lacking iformation , or in this case a belife system , doctrine , dogma , etc. meaning it is PROPAGANDA !
