Woman Who Survived Mao’s Cultural Revolution Warns Critical Race Theory is the Same Thing
“I just want to let the American people know that what is going on in our schools and in our country is really a replay of the cultural revolution in China”
Loudon County in Virginia has become a hot spot in the ongoing battle over Critical Race Theory in public schools. One mother who attended a recent school board meeting to speak out against CRT is a woman named Xi Van Fleet.
Van Fleet was a girl in China during Mao’s Cultural Revolution, and she is warning that she sees history repeating itself.
In the clip below, Van Fleet suggests that Critical Race Theory is Cultural Marxism, and that it is following the same pattern as the Cultural Revolution and even uses some of the same language.
She notes that the only major difference is that in China, it was all based on class, whereas here it is being based on race. Watch:

Thursday night, Van Fleet appeared on the Sean Hannity show to elaborate on her point.

VA parent who survived Mao: Scholastic critical race indoctrination ‘a replay’ of Mao’s ‘cultural revolution’
A Virginia parent, whose remarks at a Loudoun County school board meeting against critical race theory and cultural Marxism went viral this week, described on “Hannity” how the tenets public schools are using regarding CRT are similar to how Chinese Communist revolutionary Mao Zedong successfully divided the society she lived in as a young child in the 1960s.
Earlier this week, Xi Van Fleet spoke during a school board meeting in Leesburg condemning the school board for the critical race theory curriculum it is imposing on young students.
“We are teaching our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history. Growing up in China, all of this sounds very familiar. The Communist regime use the same critical theory is to divide people. The only difference is that used class instead of race. This is indeed the American version of the Chinese cultural revolution,” she said at the time.
On “Hannity,” Van Fleet expanded on her warning to America as a onetime victim of mandated Maoist indoctrination:
“I just want to let the American people know that what is going on in our schools and in our country is really a replay of the cultural revolution in China,” she said, calling the similarities “terrifying.”
“[Critical race theorists] use the same ideology, the same methodology, even the same vocabulary. The ideology is cultural Marxism.”

Watching this, I was reminded of Maximo Alvarez, the gas executive who escaped Communism in Cuba as a child. Alvarez was sounding the alarm about Marxism in America back in the summer of 2020.
How many times must we be warned by people who escaped Communism about what is happening in America today?

“How many times must we be warned by people who escaped Communism about what is happening in America today?“
Many, many more times. Wish they would organize and be more vocal. Tour all over and attend local government and school board meetings.
Bring megaphones in case they cut off the mics!
I am always impressed by the value that so many refugees from Communist countries bring to America, especially many of the staunchly anti-Communist Vietnamese we imported when we abandoned our fruitless war there. (And many of them ended up surrounding DC, in Maryland and Virginia.)
At the same time, I am dismayed how the fascination with Marxism is often only one generation away, as in the case of David Hogg’s former comrade Emma (now “X”) Gonzales. Sometimes the disease doesn’t even take a generation, as we see in Chief Art Acevedo (to be fair, he became a Cuban refugee at 4yo, so it’s not as if he had any direct political experience to internalize).
Critical Race Theory is the same thing as the cultural revolution in China. Well of course it is. Just different name. Change the name and do it again.
… and again, and again.
+ MILTITARY PURGE
Another similarity with China’s Cultural Revolution is the purge of US Military ranks to remove those who are not deemed ideologically pure.
This is dangerous. Once it is completed, the Marxists have a viable military option. They have already identified a paper threat (white supremacists) and can use that as a pretext for Martial Law.
The soldiers are the evil decedents of the original evil Cultural Revolution. This time, they have the Democrats, the eGOP, “education,” and the media.
Thank you Van Fleet. You are a freedom fighter.
And, “teacher”/”educator” unions at every level of the system controlling politicians and taxation of citizens. … And now that it has been “confirmed” that voting systems do not reflect accurately votes cast, it is absolutely “taxation without representation”. Unions need to be de-legitimized and union members need to admit that their participation is not in the long term interest of themselves, their children and families, or their Country.
I think Xi Van Fleet has made one error. She is assuming that the Louden county school board views Maoism as a bad thing.
The cold hard truth is that the board – and the education establishment in general – is salivating at the prospect of show trials, gulags, and outright genocide. The increasingly bellicose talk from the Biden* regime about using the military to wage war on US soil and kill “insurgents” (read: anyone who does not bow the knee to Communism) is merely the latest warning.
Agree the Recovering Lutheran
My opinion I have seen our Communists since Barky still using class warfare, only since the idea of using race warfare against DJT has it become the main driver
Obama lost me at redistributive change, then he doubled-down with diversity (inequity, and exclusion), political congruence (“=”), advocacy for the “burden” (denying women and men’s dignity and agency), wars without borders (and transnational terrorism), [catastrophic] [anthropogenic] immigration reform, progressive prices because Obamacares, and the general establishment of the Pro-Choice religion.
Critical Racists’ Theory presumes diversity [dogma] (i.e. color judgment, class-based judgment), not limited to racism, sexism, ageism; inequity; and exclusion.
To China’s credit, they have progressed from the Cultural Revolution (the Great Leap) to one-child to selective-child matching their Western peers. Wicked solutions, final solutions, justified by what are purportedly hard problems.
Before Mao Zedong, the population of China was about 400 million. After his hero-mother program (and the likely expectation of the next generation to have as many children as their parents did), it was about 1 billion, and China has far less arable land than the USA does.
This seems to me like a legitimately hard problem. It’s not to excuse Mao’s many blunders and cruelties, but don’t weaken the argument by throwing this into the pot. I’ve never heard anyone propose a better solution for what China should have done, to slow the population trajectory toward 2 billion.
A better solution? How about scrapping a political system where the state is responsible for paying the cost of everyone’s existence, just for existing? When people have to support their own sprats, they pay attention to how many they (and their property) can afford. Back in the days before birth control, this was a much less realistic expectation — now it should be a no-brainer.
Put yourself in the shoes of Deng Xiaoping. The billion people were already there. What to do now? And he did liberalize the society significantly.
She should be encouraged to run for Congress. If not, at least her school board.
The similarity to the Cultural Revolution is intentional. Most people see it as a great atrocity. Some see it as an instruction manual.
