These are turbulent times in America.
For over 35 years CFACT has been committed to the rights, freedom and advancement of ALL people, everywhere.
Socialists exploiting black tragedy to foist their destructive ideology on an unsuspecting nation is a nightmare none of us deserve.
Black lives are too precious to let this go unchallenged.
On Tuesday, CFACT sponsored an online “Truth Talk.” Over 400 people registered. This was the latest in CFACT’s series of live stream events in 2020 and featured Stacy Washington from National Center for Public Policy Research’s Project 21 and former CFACT alumnus and small business owner AK Kamara. CFACT’s Christina Norman hosted the event.
The subject was the recent race riots and the radical Left’s efforts to exploit them. You only need to pick up a paper to learn that the Green movement has also gotten in on the act; attempting to link race to climate change to stay relevant.
NASA scientist Dr. Kate Marvel recently linked ‘climate change’ to ‘white supremacy’ saying, “climate justice and racial justice are the same thing, and we’ll never head off climate catastrophe without dismantling white supremacy.”
Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg warned recently of the “Colonial, racist, & patriarchal systems of oppression that have created and fueled” climate change.
CFACT asked our panelists, all members of the minority community, what they think about this kind of rhetoric and the tactics of the Green Left.
Stacey Washington: “That is just garbage… it’s kind of amazing to me Dr. Kate would say that white supremacy has anything to do with climate change…To say that we need to have a one size fits all climate change policy and we need to take the language of the civil rights movement and couch that climate policy within the language of the civil rights movement, use that to bludgeon Americans into accepting a lot of command and control structures, instead of saying what works for these communities here…and how can the government cooperate and/or get out of the way of these communities as they address their energy needs their environmental needs, whatever their needs may be.”
AK, who was a member of CFACT’s delegation to the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit with CFACT in 2012, recalled the cries for sustainability and redistribution of wealth. He sees racial justice warriors recycling the same spiel.
“They see that this is a hot button thing,” he said, “if they can repackage it, they can reshape the way we are governed.”
Each day brings new hypocrisy from the Left. The conflation of free market principles and racism is a curious notion; one that demands critical examination. CFACT’s panelists were amused at the prospect of the Left learning what a powerful force free markets have exerted to lift people out of poverty.
If the far Left gets its way, we can all look forward to a Socialist dystopia on the model of Venezuela. Keeping people dependent on big government may make them reliable voters for the Left, but it comes at too high a price to their own well-being.
CFACT applauds our panelists for fearlessly calling out the Left.
The Left wants us divided, resentful and at each other’s throats. That’s how they plan to conquer. Don’t play their game. There is so much more that unites us.
Let us love our neighbor, stand together for law and order and against injustice, and confound our would-be masters by living together in harmony.
