January 6 : how Democrats used the Capitol protest to launch a war on terror against the political right / Smith, Lee

"The events of January 6, 2021, are being exploited by the Democratic Party and the national news media to criminalize political protest and free speech in America. American's were shocked and outraged to the chaos unfold at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. The melee shut down plans by some Republican lawmakers to object to Congress's official certification of the 2020 presidential election results. Democrats, the new media, and many leading Republicans immediately blamed the roughly four-hour disturbance on President Trump. The president "incited an insurrection," the American public was told. It prompted a second impeachment trial of Donald Trump after he left office. But one year later, the original narrative of what happened that day has crumbled while hundreds of American's have been swept up in an unprecedented investigation led by Joe Biden's Justice Department to punish them for their involvement in the January 6th protest. The public has been mislead-- and flat-out lied to-- about a number of aspects related to that day. This book exposes them all."--Back cover.

On critical race theory : why it matters & why you should care / Ray, Victor (Victor Erik)

"From renowned scholar Dr. Victor Ray, On Critical Race Theory seeks to explain the centrality of race in American history and politics, and how the often mischaracterized intellectual movement became a political necessity. Dr. Ray draws upon the radical thinking of giants such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Ida B. Wells, and W.E.B. Du Bois to clearly trace the foundations of Critical Race Theory in the Black intellectual traditions of emancipation and the civil rights movement. From this foundation, Dr. Ray explores the many facets that CRT interrogates, from deeply embedded structural racism to the historical connection between Whiteness and property, ownership, and more"--Provided by publisher.
