“If we teach that that somehow this founding of the United States of America was somehow flawed, it was corrupt, it was racist, that’s really dangerous,” he said for The Cats Roundtable host, Catsimatidis. “It strikes at the … very foundations of our country. I certainly worry about that.’’
“It’s called critical race theory or the 1619 Project. … But at the end, they’re attacking the central understandings that we have shared together for 245 years and attempt to divide the country.”
The CRT has Marxist Roots, focusing on race. Proponents of CRT see racism from the American public point of view. One effort to promote these ideas in American schools grasped the public’s attention when the Education Department proposed a rule to prioritize the works of CRT proponent Ibram X.
“I’m an optimist, but I do worry that if we become fractured, or if we lose faith in our constitutional principles, that somewhere, somehow, or some adversary, like the Chinese Communist Party, will come to undermine what’s made our country so special,” he said.
Pompeo also supported the Americans to control the children’s education, and they should learn about socialism and communism history.
“They should be taught a broad array of history and then conform good judgments on their own, and have critical thinking on their own,” he concluded.
