BRETT: I’m just trying to choke back the laughter that I’m about to break into here at this story. “Virginia Little League Coaches Must Attend ‘Anti-Racist’ Training,” and it’s not so much the anti-racist training that I’m laughing thinking about but the complications that are about to manifest. You’ll understand in just moments.
Coaches at a Virginia Little League “are encouraged to teach themselves to perceive their own ‘internalized racism’ and look for ‘potential institutional racism’ in the community.” In the community and outside the baseball diamond? So, like, around the town like going up and down the block? How…?
Okay. So they’re supposed to look for “‘potential institutional racism’ in the community. Coaches are also asked to ‘be on the lookout’ for moments that they can use as ‘anti-racism learning opportunities.'” So they want the coaches to have this training, and then the coaches will be present on the diamond coaching the kids in sports and then be able to then walk the streets as sort of a patrol, I guess, and point things out to kids as potential “anti-racism learning opportunities.
“The alliance also offers a quiz that allows high school athletes to assess their ‘privilege.’ Being a child of a parent or guardian with a college degree is one example of privilege,” one example they give. “Athletes and coaches can also use the website’s ‘identity wheel,’ which includes sections on sex, sexual preference, race, and religion, to ‘increase awareness of how privilege operates to normalize some identities over others.'”
So, this is a Little League that’s now gone woke (a piece out of the Washington Free Beacon) in Virginia. The coaches have to go to this training, have to teach the kids how to use the identity wheel and all that sort of stuff. So I understand that there is something called critical race theory. Have you heard of critical race theory? Of course you have.
So would this be critical base theory? I mean, it’s baseball, it’s Little League. Would you take the wheel? I understand we got three strikes. You got three outs, and you got nine innings. So are we going to adjust the way the game is played? Here comes Joe. Let’s look at Joe and assess. Let’s turn the wheel accordingly so that Joe is now going to get six strikes.
And when he does get a hit, he goes to third instead of first, so that… Okay, Joe; so you understand, okay, oh, here comes Wendy. Wendy, let’s turn the identity wheel for Wendy. Wendy, we’re not really seeing anything here that may apply to you. Does your parent or guardian have a college degree of any kind? They do? Okay. What is it in?
Oh, it’s an MBA? Okay. Wendy’s got two options here. She’s either gonna have two strikes or three strikes. Just bring her up, no matter what. Head back there to the bench there, Wendy. I’m sorry to have to tell you, you’ve got too much privilege to be batting three. You lose a turn.
You can run the base paths, but it won’t count. We want you to feel like you participated. Leave the mask on. In fact, give her a second mask. Run fast. You got some work to do. Rush talked about what your kids are being taught about diversity.
RUSH: From Fox News: “A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors.”
“The ‘American Diversity’ class was taught to students at Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin.” And one of the parents reported to Fox News that it was a white privilege class. That’s what the class was basically oriented toward, white privilege. “‘They’re teaching white guilt,’ one parent told Fox News. ‘They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, “You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.”
“The parent, who asked not to be identified, has an 18-year-old son who was enrolled in the class and became alarmed after she looked at some of the handouts provided to the students. ‘I felt it was indoctrination,’ she said. ‘This is a radical left agenda and ideology that is now embedded in our school.'” It is, and has been for a while. It’s called the multicultural curriculum, and the multicultural curriculum teaches this. The multicultural curriculum is 25 or 30 years old, if not older than that, and it teaches anti-Western civilization. It teaches that white European settlers came here and started causing all the trouble. White Europeans brought with them racism, sexism, environmental destruction, homophobia, all of that. That is taught.
What’s happened here is a parent just caught on to it. And I think what happened is the reason the parent caught onto it is because they brought it out from behind the curtain. This has been taught for a long time. Now they’re just being up front and honest, the teacher is, about what is being taught rather than subtly indoctrinating the kids.
They’re just being up front and honest about what they’re teaching and what it is. And they’re calling it white privilege, and they’re calling it oppression and they’re saying it still exists and that there’s segregation, and they divide the class up that way.
“The parent said the students were taught ‘if you’re white, you’re oppressing. If you’re non white, you’ve been a victim.'” Yeah. Isn’t that liberalism today? I don’t mean to sound know-it-all. I’m just saying it’s not a surprise to me. In fact, I’m a little bit encouraged that a parent finally sees what’s going on, and called attention to it.
