Concerned parent, Indian immigrant targeted by ‘woke army’ gives a speech America needs to hear

Asra Nomani, who is an Indian immigrant and a former Georgetown University professor, told Congress on Tuesday that she is being targeted by a “woke army” that has flooded US schools with books portraying America as racist via Critical Race Theory.

She called the books a “threat to democracy” and told Congress that she has been called “the face of white supremacy” because she believes teachers should focus on math and reading rather than promoting a “divisive ideology.”

Nomani made her remarks during Congressional hearings over white supremacy.

The former reporter for the Wall Street Journal stated on Twitter that she was the only witness at the hearing invited by the Republicans on the House Oversight Committee.

“I wasn’t scared. My argument: we must not replace the old hierarchy of human value with the Woke Army’s new hierarchy of human value!” she tweeted.

“I came to the United States at the age of four. I was an immigrant to the great state of New Jersey and I grew up in Morgantown, West Virginia — a mostly white state,” she said at the beginning of her remarks.

She went on to recount that she was given support and was accepted regardless of her race or religion.

“I was affirmed, I was supported and I was able to grow up a girl who knew not a word of English when I arrived to become a reporter for the Wall Street Journal,” Nomani told those before her.

“I am sitting before you today, apparently the face of white supremacy,” she said, claiming that some woke activists have called her names for her opposition to Critical Race Theory.

The activist and mother went on to relate how her father faced actual white supremacy growing up in India, where the British rulers “literally funneled food away from the people.”

“And so he grew up to be a young man who came to the United States of America because he believed in the values and the principles of this great nation,” she continued.

Nomani then told the committee that she was wearing a white shirt inspired by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s infamous Tax the Rich dress, which was designed by her father.

“It says on here the names, we the parents in the United States of America have been called … things like ‘domestic terrorist,’ ‘white supremacist,’ ‘QAnon moms.’ What is it that we, the parents, have dared to stand up against in the United States of America? It is a divisive ideology expressed through this book called Critical Race Theory that is translated into our school systems with books like this “Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness,” she railed.

“The trickle-down effect of the dehumanization of any human being because of their race is books like this,” she added and then showed the book.

Nomani then thrashed the accusation of white supremacy.

“There is no doubt that the hierarchy of human value that was white supremacy is illegitimate,” Nomani declared. “Every single person is opposed to the idea of white supremacy. But we cannot replace an old hierarchy of human value with a new hierarchy of human value that demonizes children with this book, [which says]: ‘Whiteness is a bad deal’ signing a contract with the devil.”

“What is the message in this? The message is the shaming of human beings,” she accused “No child should be shamed.”

The former professor then shared a poster that appeared in the Los Angles School District and read “F*** Amerikkka.”

“Because the idea is that our nation has become a white supremacist nation, and that is not true, that is not the reality,” Nomani proclaimed. “It is an ideology of activists who are going through America’s school district and our communities and what they are doing is a threat to democracy.”

“White supremacy must be defeated, as must all extremism,” she said.

“This is our mandate as adults for our children. Our children are in a crisis today, and the idea that we, the parents, are now the agents of white supremacy is unacceptable. All of these books that I have here today are the indoctrination that are being put into the minds of our children instead of the fundamentals that are critical to make them educated, enlightened citizens that protect our democracy. This is our greatest mandate and that is the one that I am honored to share with you to realize for our children,” Nomani concluded.
