On Thursday Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced a bill that would block federal funding for critical race theory training at the federal level.
If the bill sounds familiar to anyone, it’s because former President Trump did this in September 2020. Through the power of executive order, Trump prohibited the spread of ideological thought that blames a person’s sex or race primarily for their station in life.
But it didn’t last. "I'm rescinding the previous administration's harmful ban on diversity and sensitivity training," Biden said in his first week in office, back in January.
The senator from Texas mentioned that in his public remarks.
In a press release Cruz stated the following.
"The federal government has no right to force a political agenda onto Americans, especially one that aims to tear down our institutions and divide us based on race. Critical Race Theory originated out of the critical race studies movement. It is a Marxist ideology that sees the world as a battle, not between the classes - as classical Marxism does - but between the races. This is inherently bigoted.”
In the months since President Biden rescinded the executive orders, the US military has had an ideological overhaul in the name of the far-left postmodernist lens. Official Department of Defense memos outlined the shift in priority to demanding enforcement of LGBTQI+ protections, internationally. Anti-white rhetoric has reached top army brass, and a Space Force commander was forced to step down from duty for voicing his objections to critical race theory.
U.S. Rep. Burgess Owens of Utah introduced a similar bill to the house back in May of this year.
