No, this is not another post about butthead professor Ibram X. Kendi. It’s about someone we’ve never heard of — Frederick Joseph — who’s written a book called, “The Black Friend: On Being a Better White Person” that will be published later this year. Apparently it’s a book about anti-racism, and Joseph, perhaps in anticipation of a Biden-Harris administration, exclaimed how happy he is that one day public school children will be forced to read his book on the taxpayer’s dime.
Knowing your children will one day be forced to read my book on anti-racism in school on your tax dollars makes me so happy. https://t.co/lYe3rbz4dA

Ideas so wonderful that the state will have to force children to read them. Good job! 🤪

you are planning to FORCE children to read your books? Do you hear yourself?

Fascism tells you where it is and what it’s thinking. All you need to do is listen.

Mine won’t. I’ll teach them how to not be racist and it won’t cost taxpayers one fucking cent.

Forcing children to do anything out of spite for some randos on Twitter is scummy af.

Pull your kids out of public schools.

Did that this week and this one tweet makes me absolutely sure that it was the right decision.

My kids are gonna be homeschooled, but I’ll be sure to add your book to my teaching section on fascist propaganda.

I like how you openly admit your ideas are so bad that they can only be spread through force

The tone of this is creepy as hell.
Anyone paying attention to the culture war knows that the far left use nebulous and innocuous language to make it sound like it’s a good thing.
It falls apart under the most basic scrutiny as the OPPOSITE of what they say it is.

My kids will never read your tripe. Be happy anyway tho.

Knowing the day that happens I'll be taking my kids out of school for treats and a great time with dad makes me happy.

Thank you for acknowledging that you’re weaponizing a toxic, racist ideology against Americans by indoctrinating schoolchildren. We already knew that but glad you’re finally admitting it.

Will the kids need to wear brown uniforms or will civilian attire be permissible? Just trying to plan ahead.

Mask off, but he’s right – do not send your children to state schools, they are glorified indoctrination camps. Homeschool or form educational classes with like minded families. Listen to them when they say they mean to indoctrinate your children.

We had a good run with President Trump weeding out anti-racism workshops from government agencies and contractors. Too bad that’ll be reversed.
