“Critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism — it should have no place in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet said to cheers and applause at a Tuesday meeting of the progressive Loudoun County School Board.
“You are now teaching, training our children, to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history,” she told the meeting of the district already bitterly divided for pushing the policy that critics accuse of itself being racist.
“Growing up in Mao’s China, all of this seems very familiar,” insisted the mom, who finally fled China when she was 26.
“The Communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people. The only difference is they used class instead of race,” she said.
The mom — whose son graduated from Loudoun High School in 2015 — compared the current division in the US to her experience growing up under Mao Zedong, one of the most brutal rulers in history until his death in 1979.
She recalled seeing “students and teachers turn against each other,” and school names being changed “to be politically correct” as they were “taught to denounce our heritage.”
Mao Zedong brutally ruled China until his death in 1979.
“The Red Guards destroyed anything that is not Communist — statues, books and anything else,” she said.
“We were also encouraged to report on each other, just like the Student Equity Ambassador program and the bias reporting system,” she said of systems that other parents have sued over.
