Congress

Joe Manchin Is The Only Democrat To Vote With The GOP To Ban Critical Race Theory From Being Taught In Public Schools

Finally some good news.

All 50 republicans and 1-Democrat voted in Favor of Tom Cotton’s “Stop CRT Act” which will ban federal funds from being used to teach Critical Race Theory in public schools.

The Epoch Times reports: The Senate on Tuesday passed an amendment that bans federal tax dollars from being used to promote or teach critical race theory (CRT), a quasi-Marxist ideology, in schools.

The amendment, introduced by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), was included in the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation budget package. Last month, the Arkansas senator introduced the Stop CRT Act to prevent federal funds from being funneled to teach the theory in public schools.

CRT ideologues, Cotton said on the Senate floor, “want to teach our children that America is not a good nation but a racist nation,” adding: “Those teachings are wrong and our tax dollars should not support them.”

“My amendment will ensure that federal funds aren’t used to indoctrinate children as young as pre-K to hate America,” Cotton further stated. “Our future depends on the next generation of kids loving America and loving each other as fellow citizens, no matter their race.”

All Republicans and one Democrat voted in favor of Cotton’s amendment, passing 51–49 in the upper chamber. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), whose home state of West Virginia voted heavily in favor of former President Donald Trump, was the lone Democrat senator to join the GOP.

According to the report, some media outlets and pundits have claimed that CRT is only taught in higher education settings, such as in colleges and universities, and isn’t being widely adopted by teachers. However, critics of CRT have said there are plenty of examples of young children in school being taught to believe that white people are inherently racist—a key CRT tenet—and that “systemic racism” permeates every U.S. institution.

Cotton, during his Senate speech, pointed to several examples of CRT being used in schools, saying that at least 30 schools in 15 states have assigned the CRT-aligned book, “Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness,” which depicts “whiteness” as the devil, or Satan.

Next time a leftist tries to tell you, “There’s no CRT in K-12” remind them that 49 Dems VOTED AGAINST disallowing fed funds to PROMOTE CRT in k-12. Thankfully, @Sen_JoeManchin apparently has a conscience. https://t.co/pC0wW3YX9m

There has been a reported on the Overland Park, Kansas  school district that was implementing CRT under a different acronym, DENI – which states:

“America is a racist country built on racist ideas.” She continued, “privileged white people oppress people of color and heterosexual people suppress gay people.” …the training encourages teachers to “use your voice and educate and share the truth about racism with others, and help organize or attend protests.”
