President Trump has apparently had enough of seeing taxpayer money wasted on things like teaching critical race theory and white privilege at the federal level. Numerous agencies have previously paid obscene amounts of money to race hustlers to come in and tell them how racist they are. That’s coming to an end, and it’s something that never should have gotten started.
Here is how one outlet is describing the move over at ABC7.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has directed the Office of Management and Budget to crack down on federal agencies’ anti-racism training sessions, calling them “divisive, anti-American propaganda.”
OMB director Russell Vought, in a letter Friday to executive branch agencies, directed them to identify spending related to any training on “critical race theory,” “white privilege” or any other material that teaches or suggests that the United States or any race or ethnicity is “inherently racist or evil.”
The memo comes as the nation has faced a reckoning this summer over racial injustice in policing and other spheres of American life. Trump has spent much of the summer defending the display of the Confederate battle flag and monuments of Civil War rebels from protesters seeking their removal, in what he has called a “culture war” ahead of the Nov. 3 election.
Oh, they are just so triggered. Here’s the official announcement from the White House if you want the exact language they are using to go after the spending on these courses.
The Washington Post also gnashed their teeth. At first, they attempted to make it seem as if Trump was just making up the existence of the critical race theory classes. But then they get around to quoting an “expert” saying how vital such courses are to fairness in government.
“If we are going to live up to this nation’s promise — ‘we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal’ — we have to see each other as human beings, and we have to do whatever it takes, including taking whatever classes make that possible,” Hart said. “These classes have been very powerful in allowing people to do that, and we need them more than ever. There’s danger here.”
The OMB memo later says that “the President, and his Administration, are fully committed to the fair and equal treatment of all individuals in the United States.” It was first reported by RealClearPolitics.
The memo comes after Trump has put himself at the center of intense national debates about race, police tactics, the Civil War and the Confederate flag. Democrats have long taken aim at Trump’s comments about race, including his false assertion that former president Barack Obama was not born in the United States.
There’s the mention of the Confederate flag again, so you can tell the memo went out for how to frame this news.
While the media are going to freak out, as usual, this is a great move by the President. The grifters who teach these courses are not interested in actually solving racism. They are only interested in profiting off of it, and telling white liberals how guilty they are is a lucrative gig these days. Taxpayers have an expectation that their money won’t be spent on useless, partisan nonsense, and that’s exactly what critical race theory is. It serves no purpose but to further divide Americans along racial lines while promoting victim-hood.
Each person should be treated as an individual and each person should be responsible for any evil in their hearts. But nobody’s tax money should be blown paying faux academics to peddle damaging nonsense about white privilege and “subconscious bias” or the like.
