Postmodernism and Critical Race Theory With Michael Rectenwald

Racism is everywhere!

At least that’s the narrative the “woke” social justice movement drives.

Political movements spring from ideas and the left-wing social justice movement is rooted in postmodernism and critical race theory. But what are these ideologies? Where do they come from? And how do these ideas play out in society?

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk with former NYU professor Michael Rectenwald about postmodernism, critical race theory and the movement driven by these ideas.

Michael was a Professor of Liberal Studies and Global Liberal Studies at NYU from 2008 to 2019 when he found himself in the crosshairs of the thought police. And no, he wasn’t a right-winger. In fact, he was a Marxist.

Michael holds a Ph.D. in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon University, a Master’s in English Literature from Case Western Reserve University, and a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Pittsburgh. He’s the author of 11 books and hosts his own podcast “Rekt by Rectenwald.” Michael has also created a class for Liberty Classroom titled “Critical Theory, Cultural Studies, and Postmodern Theory.”
