The investigation by Adam Andrzejewski of Open the Books into Kelisa Wing who made headlines for her racist tweets about white people shines a light into how yet another arm of the Defense Department is being twisted by the Biden administration into radical indoctrination.
The investigation uncovers the expected diversity grift in which DEI officials also “build their own brand”. They’re all ‘coaches’ and ‘speakers’ and ‘authors’ with their books and ways to book them for sessions and seminars no matter where they’re working. And they also often have some sort of side-hustle as musicians, actors or dancers they’re also promoting. Not to mention efforts at rolling in an academic gig. So it’s good to be in the DEI business.
But beyond that, Wing was in a powerful position to define education for children of servicemembers.
The children of our servicemembers are educated in K-12 public schools run by a Defense Department sub agency known as Education Activity (DoDEA). Over 60,000 children attend these schools funded by a $3.1 billion budget.
Today, “every aspect” of DoDEA “from the curriculum and assessment to hiring and professional development” is overseen by the agency’s chief diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) officer.
The Chief DEI position was a completely new position within the agency.
This has become routine under Biden. It’s part of revamping every agency to focus on equity. An important point that a lot of conservatives have overlooked in the grand master plan.
And there’s a lot of abuses that come from it.
Wing’s book, Promises and Possibilities, is just one of 21 books she authored or co-authored. Two more are forthcoming. The books are mostly concerned with topics of racial justice and black history. Remarkably, 18 of those books were released just in the past year and a half.
Here are just three examples from her 18-part “Racial Justice in America” short-graphic series:
· What is White Privilege?
· What is the Black Lives Matter Movement?
· What Does It Mean to Defund the Police?
Books in this series are about 32 pages long with many pictures. The titles are targeted towards children aged 10-13 and are seemingly meant for a classroom setting, as they include school activities and projects.
It’s certainly convenient when you suddenly have a pole position in an educational system with a huge captive audience of kids.
In December 2020, while she was working at DoDEA, she published a blog exhorting readers to create a “School-to-Activism Pipeline.”
That’s what the folks behind the Biden administration are after when it comes to education.
It’s the old Marxist strategy. And it’s working.
