A former race-obsessed leftist turned conservative mother is being heralded as a champion for both her portrayal of critical race theory as “anti-Biblical” and “anti-American,” and her groundbreaking solution to the growing dilemma of this ideology being taught to schoolchildren.
Speaking at the Family Research Council’s annual Pray Vote Stand Summit this Thursday, mother Quisha King argued that “the only” solution is for the public to perform a “mass exodus” from America’s ailing public schools to send a loud, unignorable wake-up call to America’s institutions.
Speaking specifically on a panel about “fighting indoctrination on a national scale,” King admitted that she herself used to be a race-obsessed leftist up until the 2016 presidential election inspired her to wake up for real.
Listen to part one of her remarks, starting from the 1:48:55 mark below:
“Right after the 2016 election, I started to pay more attention to politics and God spoke to my heart and told me that my skin color had become an idol in my life. And that was life-changing, because it was so true. I saw everything through being black, and that was an offense to God, and I had to examine everything that I was doing,” she said.
Including what her daughter was being taught at school.
“When my daughter was asked what pronoun she wanted to be identified by in 8th grade at their first week of school, I’m like what is going on? This is crazy! And so I was like, OK, just pay attention. I emailed the teacher; she never emailed me back. I was like, well, you know, just pay attention to what’s going on,” King continued.
But her daughter did more than just pay attention. She recorded her teacher indoctrinating students in the racial essentialist dogma of critical race theory.
“They were supposed to be discussing books, and the books apparently had some racial themes in them well. [The teacher] never got to the literature of the books or the academic portion. She just started sectioning the kids in the way that she talked to them by their physical characteristics,” King explained.
“‘Oh, I’m sorry, as an African-American child, how do you feel about this? So as an Asian child, how do you feel about that?’ And so on. And we had a board of education meeting in Florida to ban critical race theory, and I spoke up against it because I knew it was happening, and they were trying to tell us that this was not in schools. And I’m like, no, it is!” she added.
It is indeed, though the institutional left has deceptively claimed otherwise by conflating the real-world application of critical race theory with the esoteric philosophy behind it.
At its core, the Florida mother continued, CRT says “America is intrinsically racist,” and “any righteous act that white folks do is just to uplift white supremacy” and the only way to rectify these wrongs is through rampant so-called “antiracist discrimination.”
According to King, there’s nothing good about this ideology.
“Everything about it is anti-Biblical, it is anti-American and it’s just a flat out lie. It’s just not true. You cannot have a country that has been moving towards racial reconciliation literally from its beginnings, if you really really dig into the history, and say that America is intrinsically racist. Those two things just don’t go together,” she said.
Listen to part two of her remarks starting from the 1:48:55 mark below:
Asked by the panel moderator “just how pervasive” CRT has become in schools across America, King warned that it’s become “extremely pervasive.”
“I don’t think parents realize just how pervasive it is. I know in Duval County, I found critical race theory workshops and events as far back as 2011. … So I think understanding that they are not kidding, this is not going away, the enemy has no chill and is advancing forward as fast – we can see,” she said.
She then pivoted to the highly controversial order by Attorney General Merrick Garland earlier this week authorizing federal authorities to work with local authorities to rein in parents who stir up trouble at school board hearings.
“I mean, you’re at home trying to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for your kids, and the FBI could be knocking at your door because you might have said the wrong thing at a school board meeting,” she said.
“These people — they’re serious. They want to silence us and shut us down. I really think at this point, the only thing to do is have a mass exodus from the public school system. That’s it,” she added.
The remarks spurred the audience into loud applause.
Thankfully, King wasn’t unaccustomed to being heralded as a champion.
She first made headlines in June when she slammed the teaching of CRT during a Florida State Board of Education hearing:

Continuing her remarks Thursday, King noted that there’s no other option left because the institutional left — from school unions to school teachers, so-called “journalists,” Hollywood celebrities, virtually everybody — doesn’t care.
“This FBI thing, it just made me realize, like, what else are we supposed to do? Standing up to these people doesn’t seem to matter. I mean, all of us, you know, we’ve been at these school board meetings, we’ve been voicing our opinions, we’re writing articles, we’re emailing teachers, we’re doing all that stuff, and they don’t care,” she said.
“So I’m like, the only thing left to do is to just peace out, you know. And I think that will really send the message, when they can’t take the money from for our child being in their school,” she added.
Indeed, because money talks, and bullschiff walks, and if America’s institutions won’t heed the cries from the country’s parents, it’s perhaps time that they too be given a taste of the ol’ “get woke, go broke” treatment.
A couple of days before her appearance at the conference, King also participated in a brief interview on Newsmax.

“We are uncomfortable. Parents are uncomfortable. We are uncomfortable with them teaching racism to our children. We are uncomfortable with them hyper-sexualizing, sexualizing our children, masking us, forcing vaccines. We’re uncomfortable,” she said.
“We are responsible for our children. They are a gift to us by God and we are lending them temporarily for eight hours of the day. They do not have the ability to legislate morality to our children. They belong to us, and I think they forget that for some reason,” she added.
