Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rushlimbaugh.com: “Rush’s Retort to Randi Weingarten on the 1619 Project”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

TODD: We have this responsibility to get ourselves comfortable being uncomfortable because we’re going to have to be uncomfortable should we want to win our country back or, you know, have opportunity to have it actually be united again. To not fall in all the way over into communism, we need to get comfortable being uncomfortable. This is nonsense racism critical race theory which is in fact racism being taught in the schools, I know it’s very scary for most people to speak out because it’s not a thing that most people do.

It’s uncommon for most people to do it. It’s impolite. Just one suggestion. Ask them to live by their rules. At school board meetings, ask them, or in a parent-teacher conference if you’re with a white teacher and you’re in a parent-teacher conference, say when are you — when are you resigning so a person of color can have your job? They’re not gonna have an answer for that. Or if they’re teaching the pervasive and pornographic sex ed labeled comprehensive sex education underwritten, by the way, by Planned Parenthood — I wonder why — ask them questions from the curriculum. I’m not kidding. I’m not kidding. School board meetings. Say, “So do you have these sort of devices in — next to your — next to your bed at home? How many? Oh, you’re teaching my kids, I thought it was fair game to ask you if you do this.”

Make them live by the rules they’re creating for the rest of us, because right now these things are beautiful theories to them. But it’s ethereal. Confront them with what it would be like to actually live this way. Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teaches and a maybe of the AFL-CIO was on Fox News with Martha MacCallum on Monday. And she discussed kids returning to skrools, as Rush would have said, and the ongoing debate over critical race theory or say it another way, Randi Weingarten wants teachers to stay home unless they’re teaching kids to be racist. MacCallum’s question: Do you believe that 1619 is a factual program?

WEINGARTEN: So Martha, I believe that — I’m a history teacher, and I’m a social studies teacher. And I believe we should teach history. And from everything I can see and understand from the data I see, 1619 was the year that the first slave boat came from Africa to the United States. So that’s a point in history where I think we should be teaching.

MACCALLUM: I mean that’s very simplistic, you know, take on it. I mean, the 1619 Project that that’s the true beginning and the founding of our nation, not 1776, and that the reason for the revolution and the colonialization was that people want to preserve, colonists wanted to preserve slavery, that the country was founded on the basis of wanting to preserve slavery. But that’s not factual. That is not true.
