Critical race theory is fast becoming part of classroom curriculums and the larger culture in general.

The Heritage Foundation recently hosted a panel discussion breaking down what critical race theory is and why it poses a threat. The event features insights from several Heritage scholars and policy experts.

On today’s podcast, we share the audio from the event, “The New Intolerance: Critical Race Theory and Its Grip on America.”

We also cover these stories:

  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., says that soon-to-be-ex-President Donald Trump is partly to blame for the breaching of the Capitol by rioters on Jan. 6.
  • Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, says she isn’t sure it’s constitutional to hold an impeachment trial for a president after he has left office. 
  • The United States says China is committing genocide with its repression and forced labor of the Uighurs and other Muslim minorities.
