A Virginia mother who grew up in China under Mao’s Cultural Revolution before coming to America says the tactics being used by the Justice Department and the National School Boards Association are eerily familiar to Communist tactics she’s seen before.
Fox News reports:
“When I was in China, I spent my entire school years in the Chinese Cultural Revolution, so I’m very, very familiar with the communist tactics of how to divide people, how they canceled the Chinese traditional culture and destroyed our heritage,” Xi Van Fleet told Fox News. “All this is happening here in America.”
“They call(ed) them racists for a long time, but that did not work,” Van Fleet said, referring to the parents who have spoken out about critical race theory. “So, they have to upgrade to domestic terrorists.”
Van Fleet told Fox News: “I have to say, this will backfire. If intimidation works, America has fallen a long time ago.”
“I do have a question: What’s [the] next step? Is the Tiananmen Square crackdown the next, or the parents who one day risked their lives just to speak out for the children? That’s why I’m here,” Van Fleet told Fox News.
Recently, Attorney general Merrick Garland released a memo calling for the FBI to investigate and punish those who make threats of violence against school officials after seeing a “rise” in threats from parents regarding the implementation of Critical Race Theory in schools.
