The Left’s war on American history continues at breakneck speed.
And this time, the battlelines are spilling over into High School graduations.
In this episode of Making the Argument, we cover one outrageous “social justice” commencement speech that went viral for all the wrong reasons.
As part of a nationwide push to implement a wave of new Left-wing political views in America’s public schools, High School graduations across the country are now being used as platforms for liberal ideologues to take shots at the United States.
And in one public school graduation held this past month in Virginia, a county school board member even went so far as to tell the high school graduates that they were graduating into an evil capitalist world filled with racism, white supremacy, and “extreme versions of individualism.”
“You understand that social justice is only political for those that can afford to ignore it,” said Abrar Omeish, the Fairfax County school board member who addressed a commencement crowd at Justice High School on June 7th. “You understand that ‘neutral’ is another word for complicit. And you have made a choice to take a stand.”
The High School itself had been renamed in 2018 from “J.E.B. Stuart High School,” after a former Confederate general.
“Our world is overwhelmed with need. We struggle with human greed, racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, white supremacy, growing wealth gaps, disease, climate crisis, extreme poverty amidst luxury and waste right next door. And the list goes on,” Omeish told the class of 2021.
In this episode of Making the Argument, Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas takes on Omeish’s “Social Justice” speech and the narrative perpetuated by the far-Left that individualism and capitalism are evils that need to be compared to racism and white supremacy.
