A top adviser to President Joe Biden who is also working on helping select his nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is a promoter of the highly divisive and controversial curriculum known as critical race theory as well as a member of a Black Lives Matter board.
Biden announced on Feb. 3 that Minyon Moore would advise him on the nomination process; during a Democratic presidential debate in 2020, Biden pledged to nominate a black woman to serve on the nation’s highest court.
A subsequent press release from the Biden White House explained that Moore “is a top public affairs strategist and organizer” who will “mobilize a nationwide engagement effort focused on confirmation.”
The press release also stated that Moore previously worked for the Clinton administration and once served as CEO of the Democratic National Committee.
The Blaze adds:
But the press release failed to disclose that Moore currently sits on the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation’s board of directors, the Washington Examiner reported. It is not clear when Moore joined the board, although she was not listed as a board member last year.
Meanwhile, Moore is also a proponent of critical race theory.
According to the Washington Examiner, Moore admitted recently that she talks with Kimberlé Crenshaw, a prominent attorney and a leading scholar and advocate of CRT, every Monday.
Recently, in a discussion with Crenshaw and others, Moore asked the CRT scholar how left-wing activists can empower people to clap back against political fallout over the curriculum, citing Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s 11 executive actions signed on his first day in office.
“I know that critical race [theory] is one part of it, intersectionality is another, and you have a lot of people that really are interested in helping,” Moore said to Crenshaw. “It’s almost like we are on this Zoom right now to say, ‘Please, baby, please, please, please tell us.”
In a statement to the Examiner, the White House said Biden is “proud” to have Moore advising him.
“The President is proud to have Minyon Moore on his team as he prepares to announce and confirm an extraordinarily qualified nominee after seeking the recommendations of Republicans and Democrats in the Senate,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates said.
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation told Fox News, meanwhile, that Moore “has been required to cease all involvement in matters pertaining to her work with Black Lives Matter while she is part of the White House confirmation team.” But of course, her association with the far-left group is already known and there is a legitimate concern that her associations with both BLM and affinity for CRT will greatly influence her recommendations to Biden.
Biden has interviewed three finalists for the Supreme Court nomination — all of whom are black women — and his nomination announcement is expected by Monday, NBC News reported.
Bates told NBC News that Biden “continues to evaluate eminently qualified individuals in the mold of Justice Breyer who have the strongest records, intellect, character, and dedication to the rule of law that anyone could ask for.”
All of the possible candidates are “deserving of bipartisan support,” Bates said.
