Xi Van Fleet, a mother who lived through Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution before coming to the United States blasted a Virginia school board during a public meeting over it’s support for critical race theory.
“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet told the Loudoun County School Board members. “You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history.”
“The Communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people,” she said. “The only difference is they used class instead of race.”
“We were taught to denounce our heritage, and Red Guards destroyed anything that is not communist…statues, books and anything else,” she continued. “We were also encouraged to report on each other, just like the Student Equity Ambassador program and the bias reporting system.”
“This is indeed the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution,” she said. “The critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our school.”
