LAKE OF THE OZARKS, Mo. — Two events in the Lake area next week will focus on Critical Race Theory: its origins and its dangers. “Critical Race Theory (CRT) Exposed,” with Dr. Mary Byrne Ed.D. comes to the Key Gathering Place in Camdenton on Tuesday, June 29, at 7 p.m., and First Baptist Church Versailles on Wednesday, June 30 at 6 p.m.
Dr. Byrne’s presentation will lay out how current events, most notably the recent violence ignited by claims of systemic racism, are grounded in critical race theory; and how critical race theory is grounded in Karl Marx’s writing instructing followers how to start a revolution in a nation.
Dr. Byrne will also explain how almost two centuries of Marxism have infiltrated the U.S. government, the law, churches, the military, and education. She will key-in on the current concerted effort to indoctrinate Missouri school children by instilling the CRT curriculum into the public school system.
Missouri State Rep. Suzie Pollock (R-123) will also give an end-of-session legislative update on the First Regular Session of the 101st General Assembly on June 29 at the Camdenton event. Pollock represents parts of Laclede and Camden counties in the Missouri House of Representatives.
The events are being organized by Concerned Women for America.
