An article on Critical Race Theory posted by taxpayer-funded National Public Radio heavily quotes American schoolteachers who paint opposition to the controversial teaching material as an attempt by the “thought police” to “go after teachers” to thwart the “overwhelming demand for racial equality and social justice in the United States.”
Article by Joe Schaeffer from Liberty Nation.
The May 28 article was posted as news – not opinion – in the “Race” section of NPR’s website. Its author, Adrian Florido, is described as “a national correspondent for NPR covering race and identity in America” whose “beat takes him around the country to report on major flashpoints over race and racism, but also on the quieter nuances and complexities of how race is lived and experienced in the United States.”
‘We Need To Do It’
“Teachers Say Laws Banning Critical Race Theory Are Putting a Chill on Their Lessons,” the headline read. Things don’t get any less one-sided from there. “[E]ducators say” Republican-led efforts to ban the teaching of CRT in public schools “are already forcing teachers to second-guess whether they can lead students in conversations about race and structural racism that many feel are critical at a time the nation is navigating an important reckoning on those issues,” Florido “reports.”
The NPR racial beat writer described the anguish felt by one teacher:
“In Oklahoma City, teacher Telannia Norfar said she and her colleagues at Northwest Classen High School had planned to discuss a schoolwide approach to help students understand current events – including the murder of George Floyd, family separation at the Mexico border and the use of racist terms such as the ‘China virus.’
‘We need to do it, because our students desire it,’ she said. ‘But how do we do that without opening Oklahoma City public schools up to a lawsuit?’”
NPR notes that Paula Lewis, chair of the Oklahoma City School Board, worries that her dedicated educators will be handcuffed by a new Oklahoma state law. “While the new law does not ban its teaching, Lewis said it is likely to limit how much teachers feel they can dive into conversations about topics such as structural racism and white supremacy before and since the [1921 Tulsa] massacre,” Florido writes.
Vida Robertson “directs the Center for Critical Race Studies at the University of Houston-Downtown,” Florido relates. Robertson labeled a Texas anti-CRT schools bill “a concerted attempt by Republicans to stifle a widespread and overwhelming demand for racial equality and social justice in the United States by mischaracterizing critical race theory as some abhorrent plot to undermine America.”
The Curse Of Parents Who Pay Attention
These teacher comments reflect the central theme of the article: CRT is as necessary as math or spelling in educating America’s youth today. Robertson fears the GOP bill “will give parents who are uncomfortable with the nation’s ongoing racial reckoning a tool to go after teachers.”

Amazingly, opposing a highly divisive program that seems to have the sole purpose of instilling guilt in white American schoolchildren’s minds over the history of their country is described as Orwellian-styled authoritarianism by these teachers.
Meghan Dougherty, “who helps public school teachers in Round Rock, Texas, develop social studies lessons plans,” detailed the horrific experience a “colleague” was subjected to when a parent took an interest in the CRT lessons being fed to his child.
“[D]uring the [coronavirus] pandemic, [the teacher] gave students a virtual lesson on race and prejudice in U.S. society. She said a father at home overheard a portion of it,” Florido writes.
“Then he wrote an email to the administration complaining that the teacher was accusing his child of being a racist when they were having a conversation about implicit bias and what implicit bias is and how it affects us,” a wounded Dougherty exclaimed.
“She said [a] proposed [state legislature] bill makes it feel like the thought police are descending on Texas,” the intrepid NPR race reporter added.
Good luck with that line of defense. It’s not easy to play the “we’re the ones being bullied” card when your fellow credentialed advocates are saying things like this:
“They have no idea what critical race theory is, what it does, who the founders are. They’ve never read a book, much less a paragraph on it,” Georgina Perez, who serves on the Texas State Board of Education, said of CRT critics, the progressive Texas Tribune reported on May 22 . “I understand that maybe some white people are uncomfortable. Well, dammit, when Black people were being lynched, they sure as hell weren’t comfortable. Native Americans being removed from their land and Mexican Americans being shot to death in the middle of the night, that sh-t wasn’t comfortable either.”
Is it really such a mystery why parents don’t want Georgina Perez or anyone who shares her ideology near their young children’s classrooms?

‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are pacing to be short by about $3700 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
