Asra Nomani, author of “Woke Army: The Red-Green Alliance That Is Destroying America’s Freedom” and co-founder of Save Merit, is emphasizing the necessity of “winning this war against the woke army.”

“It is not an exaggeration to say that the future of America depends on our winning this war against the woke army … I wouldn’t say that lightly except behind me, your listeners and you can’t see it, but behind me, stacks of books in which I’ve been fighting this extremism within my Muslim community that is a national security threat. Right? We know this,” Nomani says.

“And then after that, I organized my books chronologically. That’s the OCD in me—’70s, ’80s, ’90s, filled with those books. And then I have my books on critical race theory and all this oppression studies and grievance studies, and then the indoctrination books for the kids,” Nomani adds. “‘Woke Baby,’ ‘A is for Activist,’ ‘ABCs’ that have now become ‘GayBCs.’ Right? Indoctrination on every level of a child’s identity.

Nomani continues:

And why do I know how serious this is? Because in that first part of my life as a warrior against extremism within my Muslim community, I know you’ve heard the term of madrasas, right? It’s the term for those schools in which the jihadis would indoctrinate children. It’s the public school system in nations like Pakistan and Afghanistan, and they would indoctrinate children from a young age.

Where have we heard that again? The Cultural Revolution, of course. Entire nations’ destinies have been defined by what we teach children, and that is exactly what it is at stake here, and that’s why we have to win this war.

Nomani joins today’s episode of “The Daily Signal Podcast” to further discuss the “war on merit,” the potential short-term and long-term consequences of the war on merit, and her advice for any parents who want to get more involved with what is happening at their child’s school.
