At some point in their educational journey, most students learn the basic tool for identifying truth called critical thinking.
Unlike the racist Critical Race Theory (CRT) which is a concerted effort to force racism into every action and decision, critical thinking helps you take in information and determine if it is true or biased propaganda.
In an article I found on the far left propaganda network MSNBC, you can see CRT expounded in written form.
Ja’han Jones who appears to be racist against “white” Americans, references their skin color several times. He is an anti-gun activist who demeans police while writing this article for NBC’s host Joy Reid’s blog. In addition, he advances untruths such as Kyle Rittenhouse traveled over state lines on his way to the “demonstrations”.
“Kyle Rittenhouse, who fatally shot two protesters and wounded a third during anti-police brutality demonstrations in Wisconsin last year, has been found not guilty of homicide — an outrageous yet unsurprising verdict in a trial marred by controversy.”
“Rittenhouse, who is white, was 17 when he traveled from his hometown in northeast Illinois to the protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year armed with his semi-automatic rifle. On the night of Aug. 25, 2020, as he carried his gun through the streets, Rittenhouse shot dead Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, now 27″.

The case had the makings of an acquittal before the trial even began. The outcome seemed clear even before an almost exclusively white jury pool was selected.
“Rittenhouse is a white teen who abides by white rules, and white people empathetic to those rules seemed poised to insulate him from repercussions.”
The day he pleaded not guilty to felony homicide, Rittenhouse flashed a white supremacist symbol and was “loudly serenaded” by a group of men at a bar who belted out the anthem of the Proud Boys, a far-right extremist group, according to prosecutors.
On the night of the shooting, minutes before Rittenhouse opened fire, police in Kenosha thanked the rifle-toting teen and offered him water as he walked the streets. “We appreciate you guys, we really do,” one officer told him.
With these endorsements, white conservatives felt all the more comfortable swaddling Rittenhouse in the protection they often give to police and vigilantes serving white conservative interests — from George Zimmerman to Mark and Patricia McCloskey. Rittenhouse is just their latest darling, pitifully seeing heroism in an armed teen who set out to patrol pro-Black protests as though he were police.
“Their support for Rittenhouse isn’t a counterweight to progressive social policies like equitable policing — their support is a physical threat to people supporting those policies.”
“Conservatives are encouraging white vigilantes like Rittenhouse to police progressive spaces by all means. As one Slate article put it last year, “’Own the Libs’ Is Gradually Morphing Into ‘Kill the Libs.’”
Mr. Jones through his article tries to change the attackers to being fatally shot protesters, the night of the shooting goes from fascists burning down businesses to anti-police demonstrations and his inference is white people can’t administer justice.
So if you see tweets, have conversations with co-workers or if you have family members who digest this type of propaganda, without the use of critical thinking, you can expect them to not go well.
I recommend you let these types of opportunities go by without discussing this trial and other SJW actions as you will not change their minds, but could ruin Thanksgiving dinner and your workplace relationships permanently.
