Michael Eric Dyson: Republicans anger over Gen. Milley’s study of critical race theory proves ‘white rage is boiling in their blood’

“I’ve read Mao Tse-tung...Karl Marx...Lenin. That doesn’t make me a Communist,” Gen. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said. “What is wrong with understanding — having some situational awareness of the country which we are here to defend?”

Gospel singer Shirley Caesar's 'Star Wars'-themed theater goes viral - CNN Video

Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Shirley Caesar's $1.5M home listing went viral for its movie theater full of Star Wars and Star Trek memorabilia.

He was just pointing out a very valuable idea. Republican white rage. I agree with him fully. He's awesome. This is something DeSantis don’t know or don’t care about. I wonder which? Yet - you've read them to understand how to defeat them, NOT, to try and rewrite American history. Like most despots they don’t want the masses educated.

Reading about these historical public figures make you informed; and you can better understand their thinking. I respect General Milley’s thinking and openness. 'In an age of Information, Ignorance, is a Choice'. Especially when people,just assume what's being stated. Oddly enough, I am only scared of NOT learning.

also known as know thy enemy Anti-white racism = Biggest growing threat to our democracy The right is only about fear.

Michael Eric Dyson: Republicans anger over Gen. Milley’s study of critical race theory proves ‘white rage is boiling in their blood’Vanderbilt University professor and author of “Tears We Cannot Stop” Michael Eric Dyson reacts to General Milley’s response to the “utterly reprehensible” attack Republicans made at a House Armed Services committee earlier today when they discovered Milley has read critical race theory RepMattGaetz completely out of your depth but solid effort. Like Mike Tyson vs. a kindergartener

this is terrible news carlson: No! I choose to remain ignorant and I make damn good money at it. My Inquirer inspired show will get'em every time.............y'all. I cheered so loudly when I heard him, I woke the snoring dog! White rage should be considered as a severe Mental illness. This no longer a political party it’s definitely a CULT

No MSNBC: It has nothing to do with 'situational awareness' -- it's the action you take because of that 'awareness' of which you are responsible. If Milley doesn't understand that --- he NEVER should have moved to the ranks of a General. Help us all with this type of thinking! Should have read the bible.

Politicians make policy not generals. They're job is to prepare and train the military in order to protect us from FOREIGN enemies, not an imaginary racist country called America. Dems have infected every facet of America with their hate and racism. Because he’s not trying to “understand” he’s trying to implement this CRT crap in the military… he wasn’t thinking of trying to implement socialism or communism by reading Mao or Lenin… that’s the difference

Republicans need to stop believing cartoonish/hollywood representations of our military. They were stunned to find out these commanders are intelligent, well-read, & have a curiosity to learn about things outside GOP doctrine in order to engage the enemy effectively & protect US

Watch: Gen. Mark Milley Delivers Powerful Defense of Studying Critical Race Theory“I’ve read Mao Zedong. I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist,” said the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff I need 150000 dollars I inspired that much music I need as much as I can get right now Couldnt agree more. If grown adults are afraid of books or ideas being taught to kids -they are still under the illusion kids dont decide this stuff for themselves anyway. Innit?

Trumpisgoingdow Knowledge is a Republican's enemy. Defend knowledge and it puts you at odds with the Republicans. At least he agrees CRT is inline with mass murderer thinking. There is a difference between indoctrination and education. CRT has been weaponized. Fight4Righteousness 'Some distinguish indoctrination from education on the basis that the indoctrinated person is expected not to question or critically examine the doctrine they have learned.'

CRT has been weaponized. Fight4Righteousness Recognize your enemy. So Milley reads Kendi to understand 'white rage.' Does he also read Mein Kampf to understand Jews? God damn right. 'White Rage' is the perfect description.

Milley defends U.S. military teaching of critical race theoryGen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, responded to criticism from Republican lawmakers Wednesday that members of the military are taught critical race theory, the academic concept that racism is a systemic, social construct. Will they encourage them to go on to a Liberal College and earn a MASTERS degree in a Democracy which is code word for Ostracize them into silence thus bringing back Slavery because nobody is allowed to hear the cries of ostracized for freedom Straight Garbage. Sounds more like a Russian asset than a general tbh

NYT, MSNBC’s Mara Gay: ‘Disturbing’ to see ‘dozens of American flags’ on trucks on Long Island White rage 😎 Steven Sund said he had asked House and Senate security officials for permission to request that the D.C. National Guard be placed on standby days before the protest, but was turned down Technically that’s correct, reading those books does not make you a Marxist.… Defending them, that makes you a Marxist‼️

Dr. Dyson's reaction was spot on. Critical Race Theory is Creationism v2.0. The only difference is that the evangelicals are 'blue' this time. Exactly Boy he went off!! soundoff needed Truth truthmatters PinkyDonaldson They asked the question he answered.

Gen. Mark Milley: ‘I want to understand white rage, and I’m white’“I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military … of being ‘woke’ or something else because we’re studying some theories that are out there,” the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. good luck What does this have to do with anything markets related? We can be offended about “wokeness” as long as we don’t ever address actual issues. Like female rape.

The General spoke the fucking truth, take that. The problem, ya tool, is that people get the impression that 'just might' be sympathetic to it. Nah? We outspent China 6:1 in military spending for decades. We still outspend them more than 2:1. There is a reasonable chance they could beat us in the Pacific and Taiwan. They own us in cyberspace. Woke, well read, or not, anyone see a problem here thejointstaff chairmanjcs 🤔?

GOP solution…. Do not allowed the republicaniski GOP to take control of America election system, the Red States are controlled by Putin.

Top U.S. general hits back at right-wing uproar over racism teachingsThe United States' top military officer on Wednesday hit back against a growing conservative movement opposed to teaching certain theories about racism at educational institutions, saying military university graduates should be 'open-minded and be widely read.' Why is Gaetz even there? He is a champ at embarrassing himself and all intelligent life! Just intersectional nonsense predicated on the ideas that groups have rights. People need to be taught individual (!!!) responsibility and not hide behind whichever group they identify with.

Creator of term ‘Critical Race Theory’ Kimberlé Crenshaw explains what it really is'The original point of critical race theory originally was to think and talk about how law contributed to the subordinate status of African Americans,' creator of the term Kimberlé Crenshaw says. GinaMcGalliard One of my former professors. She is awesome. They don't tell you that any sociological-based idea system is inherently prone to activism and enforcement of principles. DuBois said it himself that sociology must include activism and action towards change. It goes beyond just thinking and talking. Man y'all can beat the hell out of a dead horse.
