With newly-inaugurated President Joe Biden having re-instituted the racist, illiberal critical-race-theory programs that were rescinded by former President Donald Trump, a powerful coalition of attorneys and conservative organizations have begun marshalling their forces for a full-frontal legal assault on the new administration.
The assault was announced by filmmaker, writer, and researcher Christopher Rufo of the Discovery Institute in a press release Thursday afternoon, hours after Biden had been inaugurated into office and rescinded the Trump-era executive order that had banned critical-race-theory training programs.
Dubbed the Stop Critical Race Theory coalition, the group will be led by the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth & Poverty in conjunction with a large number of powerful players, including the following:
- Southeastern Legal Foundation
- Upper Midwest Law Center
- Jonathan O’Brien with Schoolhouserights.org
- The Pivtorak Law Firm
- Wally Zimolong of Zimolong, LLC
- Eric Early and Peter Scott of Early, Sullivan, Wright, Gizer, & McCrae
“Critical race theory is a grave threat to the American way of life. It divides Americans by race and traffics in the pernicious concepts of race essentialism, racial stereotyping, and race-based segregation—all under a false pursuit of ‘social justice,’” Rufo wrote in his release.
“Critical race theory training programs have become commonplace in academia, government, and corporate life, where they have sought to advance the ideology through cult-like indoctrination, intimidation, and harassment.”
The exact same sort of racially-based “cult-like indoctrination, intimidation, and harassment” that, if left unchecked, could eventually turn America into an apartheid state where rights and privileges are doled out based on the color of one’s skin.
Continuing his press release, Rufo wrote that the “time to fight back” is now, ergo why he’s put together a coalition whose job it’ll be to file lawsuits in state and federal courts to push back on the encroaching, pernicious rise of critical-race-theory ideology.
The eventual goal, he added, is to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court.
“Our ambition is to take one of these cases to the United States Supreme Court and establish that critical race theory-based programs—which perpetuate racial stereotypes, compel discriminatory speech, and create hostile working environments—violate the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the United States Constitution,” he wrote.
“When we are victorious in the courts, it will have an immediate ripple effect through every school, government agency, and private employer in the nation. We will effectively abolish critical race theory programs from American life.”
Today, President Biden doubled down on critical-race theory in the federal government.
In response, I am announcing a new coalition of legal foundations and private attorneys that will wage relentless legal warfare against race theory in America’s institutions.

The announcement garnered enthusiastic applause from the intellectuals who grasp the dangers of a destructive, illiberal, and patently racist ideology that uses immutable traits to define people and their worth, taking root in the United States.
Among the praisers was former Fox News journalist turned popular podcaster Megyn Kelly, who cited Rufo’s work as an example of how to properly fight back.

She was right, of course, as this was the exact strategy that the left had employed to stymie Trump’s agenda. A multitude of his executive orders, from the one that rescinded DACA to the one that limited federal employee union-bargaining, were struck down by the courts because of lawsuits like the ones being filed by Rufo’s coalition.
The only difference is that whereas every lawsuit that was filed against the Trump administration was heralded by the mainstream press, they have chosen to ignore Rufo’s lawsuits for now. And even if they do eventually cover them, they’ll likely do so in a negative manner that smears Rufo and his partners as “white supremacists.”
So just how illiberal and dangerous is critical race-theory? So much so that one Nevada school that preaches this sick ideology tried to brainwash a biracial boy, William Clark, into acknowledging that he’s apparently a privileged white male oppressor. This was revealed in a lawsuit filed by his family last year.
“Defendants compelled Plaintiff William Clark to make professions about his racial, sexual, gender, and religious identities in verbal class exercises and in graded, written homework assignments which were subject to the scrutiny, interrogation and derogatory labeling of students, teachers, and school administrators,” the suit reads.
“By directing Plaintiff William Clark to reveal his identities in a controlled, yet non-private setting, to scrutiny and official labeling, Defendants were and still are coercing him to accept and affirm politicized and discriminatory principles and statements that he cannot in conscience affirm.”

To be clear, no child — whether fully-white or biracial — should be demeaned as an “oppressor,” especially in such a loving, tolerant country like America.
Yet these sorts of lesson-plans are now on track to become ubiquitous in the public schools of Joe Biden’s America unless of course, someone stops it first.
