119 - Critical Race Theory is Tearing This Nation Apart

It is not often that I get to sit with a Conservative Icon so, I relish the time with Dr. Carol Swain as long as I possibly can. We discussed her faith and how it molded her into the woman she is today. Afterwards, we discussed critical race theory, Marxism and politics. These were only some of our talking points. 

  • Success comes when you refuse to be a victim
  • Critical Race Theory is tearing this nation apart
  • All we wanted was equal opportunity and non-discrimination
  • I'm sorry bill collector, your math is racist
  • Oh, the irony. Segregation is making a comeback. 
  • The long, slow walk of Marxism into America
  • The Incredible harm of restorative justice
  • Will the real Barack Obama please stand up?
  • Children have to be taught to be racist and CRT does exactly that. 
  • Treasonous behavior and the two-tier justice system in America
  • Please pray for America with me

And so much more! Do yourself a favor and tune into this podcast NOW! You will be blessed by it and inspired.
