Christopher Rufo is a conservative writer and filmmaker known for his work on issues related to critical race theory and identity politics. He has been a vocal critic of left-wing ideology and its impact on American institutions. During his appearances on podcasts and in interviews, Rufo has discussed a range of topics, including education, poverty, Marxism, and the influence of identity politics in academia and politics. He has argued that institutions, such as universities and media outlets, have been captured by the left and that this has resulted in a narrowing of acceptable discourse and a stifling of dissenting opinions. Rufo has also spoken about the need for change to be written into law and the importance of a moral framework when defining change.
