GOP lawmakers want to keep Marxist-based CRT far from troops

female airman (USAF)Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill have witnessed Critical Race Theory creep into corporate cubicles and the federal government, and the push is on to keep the Marxist-based theory far away from the U.S. armed forces.

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) has introduced the Combat Racist Training in the Military Act, a companion measure to legislation introduced in the Senate by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas).

The bill prohibits the Pentagon from using training materials that promote critical race theory, Rep. Bishop told reporters this week, “and it stands for the idea that CRT does not belong in our armed forces.”

At the same press conference, Rep. Chip Roy pointed out that America’s schools are teaching white children their country is evil and they should apologize for their own race.  

“The press should be the press and go look,” Roy told reporters, “because this is real."

Critical Race Theory claims all whites are born racists whose inherent racism makes them oppressors of minorities, who are therefore oppressed from birth. A white person who insists they are not a racist means you have not become “woke” to the truth and hence need to be introduced to terms such as “oppressor” and “equity” and “white privilege.”

When the liberal media is forced to report on the issue, which is becoming more frequent, the radical training is often described in generic and simplistic terms: “President Joe Biden rescinds Donald Trump ban on diversity training about systemic racism,” reads the Jan. 20 headline at USA Today.

One News Now reminded readers this week that Donald Trump ordered an immediate stop to white employees of the federal government being forced to sit through CRT training but Biden ordered the training to continue the day he took office on January 20.

"Critical Race Theory asserts that people with white skin are inherently racist,” Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) said at the press conference, “not because of their actions, words, or what they actually believe in their heart, but by virtue of the color of the skin.”

Antonio Gramsci, an Italian intellectual and avowed Marxist, called the idea of infiltrating politics, academia, and the media “Cultural Marxism."

At the press conference, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona) seemed to hit on that history by pointing out Critical Race Theory claims to be a “great equalizing philosophy” when it is not.

"It's meant to bring and foment dissent, confusion, chaos, and ultimately control into a nationalized central government,” he warned. “That is Critical Race Theory."

Chinese soldiers with masksWhat a difference a year makes: Donald Trump was mocked and vilified by the Left for suggesting the Chinese virus that swept across the world came from a high-level research lab in Wuhan, and now all of his detractors seem to be infected with memory loss as the common-sense lab leak theory gains acceptance among those who dismissed it a year ago.
