Letter: Chris Stevenson, Purcellville

Editor: I want to thank LCPS for their openness to studying Critical Race Theory, not to have it taught but to learn things from it. Post-2020 institutions have a mandate to listen more carefully to those marginalized and harmed by the imperfect yet honorable American project.

I also offer a warning voice about culture war profiteers who prey upon beloved Loudoun County friends and neighbors, transmogrifying their valid concerns into fear, then anger, then hatred—the pitting of neighbor against neighbor.

For the “center to hold” in Loudoun County, I and many others believe culture wars must, and can, be avoided. So pled Abraham Lincoln:
“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies.”

    I join with Chris Stevenson in calling for a truce in Loudoun County. As Abraham Lincoln said near the end of the Civil War: “With malice toward none, with charity for all.” It’s time to stop turning on each other. Loudoun is a great county with so much to offer the world. Happy Spring Loudoun!

    Mr. Stevenson continues to portray himself as someone other than the extreme left leaning liberal he is. The only thing about his letter that I appreciated was that he is no longer hiding under the title of a “Conservative for Democrats’.

    The Left has allowed the radical FAR Left to take over their agenda. And they know this has been a disaster for the American people. So now the they want to claim that they’re actually in the “Center.”

    CRT is garbage mythology that elevates racism as the cause of all societal evil and , paradoxically, the solution to all evil.
    It has no place in schools or anywhere else that values credibility and honesty.
