Dem US Senate Candidate Jeff Jackson says ‘CRT Doesn’t Exist’

RALEIGH – Deny, deny, deny. That’s the Democrats’ playbook, it seems, when it comes to Woke indoctrination in schools.

Notice your kids school lessons are pushing race guilt and systemic racism as a reality? You’re imagining things.

Worried the local middle school’s ‘Equity & Inclusion’ office is preaching Critical Race Theory as a rule of thumb? Stop it; CRT doesn’t exist.

2022 U.S. Senate primary candidate Jeff Jackson, vying for the Democratic nomination, is showing off his mastery of the narrative-spin, too. The state senator and aspiring U.S. Senator responded to questions about CRT’s influence by denying it’s very existence.

Cal Jr. (Jeff Jackson) refused to answer a voter’s question about his position on Critical Race Theory and even said it “doesn’t exist.” 

“Democrats like Cal Jr. are starting to panic as they realize Critical Race Theory (CRT) is not only dangerous and divisive, but also a political loser,” said NCGOP Press Secretary Livy Polen. “As North Carolina Democrat Senate candidates dodge questions regarding CRT, parents, school boards, and Republican leaders are acting to rid the public education system of CRT’s corrosive effects.”

Here are just a few examples of Critical Race Theory being taught in North Carolina:

    • The Charlotte-Mecklenberg Board of Education paid Ibram X. Kendi, a proponent of Critical Race Theory, $25,000 to speak at an event. 
    • Wake County offered a teacher training course entitled “Intro to Critical Race Theory.”
    • The Durham City Council recently passed a resolution that asks state and federal representatives to “work to ensure… critical race theory is included in our students’ public school education.”
    • The North Carolina Association of Educators President Tamika Walker Kelly vowed to teach Critical Race Theory “even if illegal.”

The following North Carolina County School Boards issued resolutions against Critical Race Theory: 

Of course, this is not the first time Jackson has demonstrated his adeptness at spinning a narrative without regard for the truth. Back in 2017 he got a lot of adoring attention from Rolling Stone for doing what Democrats excelled at the last several years — blame Donald Trump for inspiring bigots and violence.

After Jewish community center bomb threats emerged around the country in 2017, Jackson couldn’t wait to blame Trump directly, calling him a ‘maniac’ that was using such hate as a political strategy. Well, it turned out the person responsible was and anti-Trump Leftist. That information was released just a few days after Jackson’s spread in Rolling Stone, and Jackson apologized for his obviously erroneous and incendiary claim said nothing.

So, Jackson lying that CRT doesn’t exist is a relatively light lift for the ambitious young politician.
