Former President Donald Trump delivered a fiery warning about critical race theory over the weekend – exposing it as “flagrant racism” being forced into “every facet of our society.”
Trump spoke at Arizona Federal Theatre for the “Protect Our Elections Rally” hosted by Turning Point Action, and the former president slammed Democrats for adhering to an “America last” ideology.
“We shouldn’t be apologizing to the world,” he said. “We’re apologizing for America, just like Obama apologized. Remember, he apologized. They should be apologizing to America for what they’ve done to it. That’s who I think should be apologizing to.”
“The Biden administration’s ‘America last’ philosophy … is also making a mockery of our country right here at home,” he continued.
“Earlier this year, Biden signed an executive order pushing toxic, critical race theory into our children’s schools and into our military. How about our military? This poisonous left-wing doctrine is flagrant racism, plain and simple, and it has no place in our schools, no place in our military and no place in our country.”
Trump was referring to President Biden’s first day in office when he signed an executive order rescinding Trump’s order that restricted the federal government and its contractors from teaching critical race theory.
“If you remember, I ended it very rapidly with a very powerful executive order, but that executive order was immediately repealed and terminated by the radical left,” Trump said. “A Republican Congress will defund it and ban it once and for all. They’re going to ban it. They will get it done.”
Trump also went after the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, who last month defended the military’s examination of critical race theory, which Trump referred to as “a Marxist ideology.”
“Can you believe it?” Trump asked the crowd. “He said he wanted to quote, ‘understand White rage.’ He wants to understand White rage. What the hell is he talking about that for? Our generals should not be focused on learning left-wing ideology. They should be focused on defeating America’s enemies and winning our future wars. Hopefully, we don’t have them, but if we do, we have to win them.”
Trump said he remains a target of the left because of his and his movement’s patriotism and belief in the American worker.
“They’re still coming after me because I will never stop fighting and winning for you,” he continued.
“Going through it for five years, five years. From the very beginning of our movement, we have been fighting against some of the most corrupt, powerful and entrenched forces imaginable. The professional political class, the deep state, the fake news media, the Russia hoaxers, the globalists, the socialists, the communists, the lobbyists, the corporate special interests who are absolutely terrible, and now the critical race theorists – all of them oppose our movement for a simple reason: We believe in putting America first.”
“It’s very simple,” he added. “We believe in strong families, strong borders and strong sovereign nations. We believe in fair trade for the American worker.”
President Trump in his speech over the weekend – which should serve as a fierce rallying cry for 2022 elections – also warned that communism has reached America.
“What’s happening to our country has sadly happened to many others. We are at the beginning of a communist system,” Trump said. “Radicals are seizing power and destroying everything we hold dear as Americans, and it’s happening. And I said it was going to happen.”
Trump said leftists are ushering in communism by dismantling the rule of law, censoring speech, taking over the free press, and imprisoning political opponents.
“Look at what I’ve been through for years — and of course [they] hold fake phony elections,” he concluded.
