“It is from Critical Race Theory we get terms like ‘systemic racism’ and ‘white privilege’ which radical leftists love to throw around so much,” said Senator Hanson in a post on Facebook.
The One Nation leader noted that Critical Race Theory was behind recent reports of school children being shamed in front of their peers for being white, Christian “oppressors.”
“While many would rather just bury their heads in the sand and ignore this problem, One Nation is at the forefront of the fight to ensure the children of Australia receive an education, not an indoctrination,” she added.
Senator Hanson said the fight is now on to ensure the Australian Government keeps its word by keeping this “divisive, radical left-wing indoctrination” from schools.
