Caught Red-handed: Critical Race Theory Is Being Taught at West Point

Various news outlets—Fox NewsThe Washington Times, the New York Post, and Breitbart, among others—have reported on a trove of documents obtained by Judicial Watch revealing that the U.S. Military Academy at West Point has been indoctrinating cadets on critical race theory.

That’s in spite of claims to the contrary made by various defense and administration officials over the past few years that the Department of Defense and the military services were not engaging in such practices.

While such instruction to young military officers in training (indeed, all military personnel in any capacity) is worrisome in itself, it’s additionally troubling that the truth had to be pried from the grip of West Point administrators wanting to hide it.

It took “two Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the U.S. Department of Defense, which were filed after it failed to respond to requests for records concerning critical race theory training at West Point … and emails related to such training” involving its most senior leaders, Judicial Watch said.
