The newest Fox attack on "critical race theory" echoes the Great Replacement conspiracy theory

This also makes it very clear that when Fox News promotes a scare campaign at “critical race theory,” they don’t mean a branch of debates in higher academia — they mean any acknowledgment that systemic racism exists as a problem in society. (Whatever else you might do about it.)

Fox News has been openly pushing an effort geared toward the midterm elections to elevate the specter of “critical race theory” — a broad academic discipline that seeks to explore how the history of racism in America still has an effect on modern life and society — and to present it as a national threat.

Now the network has gone one step further and has actually published materials that seek to recruit people for local school board campaigns.

In an article on Wednesday, headlined “Conservative think tank creates 'A to Z guide’ for stopping critical race theory in schools,” the Fox website promoted the political organization Citizens for Renewing America, headed up by Russ Vought, who served as director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Trump administration.

The story contains a byline of Fox News reporter Matt Leach, part of the network’s purported “straight news” division. Its opening paragraphs, however, were more a direct call to action rather than straight news coverage.
