In the zero-sum game of Republicanism, you cannot be nice or polite to anyone without hurting a conservative. Our latest example:
Guilford GOP school board campaign manager says helping children of color feel like they belong hurts white children
GUILFORD, CT. (WFSB) – Mary Beeman, the campaign manager for the Guilford republican school board candidates, commented, “helping kids of color to feel they belong has a negative effect on white, Christian, or conservative kids,” during a UConn. virtual education forum.
The forum was on how to teach race and critical race theory (CRT) in school.
Of course it was about CRT, even though it is not a topic in education beneath the graduate school level, but that part never seems to be mentioned.
And of course, Beeman offers the inevitable correction as follows: It’s Your Fault You Didn’t Understand Me:
When questioned about her comment, Beeman said, “The statement I made was poorly worded and shown out of context.”
Which makes one wonder what a good context might be, you know, outside of a Klan rally.
