This past Tuesday, the left-wing media attempted yet another social assassination. Their targets this time was Chip and Joanna Gaines, the interracial power couple that are the stars of the show “Fixer Upper.” They attempted to paint the couple as racists for sending a $1000 donation to the campaign for the local school board of Chip’s sister, which seeks in part to put an end to the highly criticized critical race theory from being taught in schools.
An endless barrage of media headlines seemed to ignore the fact that the campaign for Shannon Braun, the woman that was donated to, was, in fact, Chip’s sister. The media sharks also set critical race theory in a false light that showed it as nothing more than teaching students about “racism” in general, which we definitely know it is not.
One headline from The Hill read: “TV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines donate to campaign against critical race theory in schools.”
Another article was reposted on Yahoo! News as Insider took off with the Headline: “Chip and Joanna Gaines reportedly donated $1,000 to a Texas school board candidate trying to ban teaching about systemic racism.”
The one thing in common about all the headlines and articles from the left-wing smear machine is ‘Chip and Joanna bad; Chip and Joanna racists’.
They gave $1000 to Chip's sister who is running for local school board.
And this is the headline… https://t.co/8igS5PYlie

While campaigning for the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District (GCISD) School Board, Braun stated that critical race theory is “the single most divisive threat” to education, as reported by The Dallas Morning News.
“I will vote down anything and everything that further promotes critical race theory in our school district and actively work to remove all critical race theory,” Braun stated as a campaign promise to parents in the district.
James Lindsay, the founder of New Discourses and a leading expert on critical race theory, brought to light that the divisive ideology doesn’t nothing but hurt people as it forces them to see just two camps: the “oppressed” and the “exploiters.”
The Daily Wire stated:
Lindsay begins by noting that, in the teachings of Critical Race Theory, skin color is the most important part of you. If you belong to a racially “minoritized” group, then you’re oppressed; if you belong to a racially “privileged group,” you’re an exploiter.
“Critical Race Theory begins from the assumption that racism occurs in all interactions,” notes Lindsay. … Because Critical Race Theory teaches that racism is present in every interaction, proponents of the ideology are forced to interpret every interaction “critically” — in such a way that identifies the racism. And Critical Race Theory will always find the racism it seeks, says Lindsay, “even if it has to read your mind to do it.”
This whole debacle isn’t the first time the left-wing smear machine has targets Chip and Joanna. The pair have, once before, had a failed ‘cancelling’ by the media for alleged “homophobia” due to the fact that they did not feature a gay couple on their television show.
