Idaho State House Passes Legislation Banning Anti-White ‘Critical Race Theory’ in Schools
Legislation to ban the teaching of Marxist Critical Race Theory in Idaho schools has passed in the state house by a 27-8 vote.
Manhattan Institute senior fellow Christopher Rufo made the announcement in a Twitter post:
The bill, House Bill 377, will now be considered in the state senate after being approved in the house. If approved and signed into law, the legislation would ban schools from teaching “that any sex, race, ethnicity, religion, color, or national origin is inherently superior or inferior.”
“The Idaho legislature finds that tenets…often found in “critical race theory”…exacerbate and inflame divisions on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, or other criteria in ways contrary to the unity of the nation and the well-being of the state of Idaho and its citizens,” the bill states.
Big League Politics has reported on other states, including Florida under the stewardship of Gov. Ron Desantis, taking aim at critical race theory:
“Critical race theory will not have a place in any public schools in the Sunshine State.
Governor Ron DeSantis announced on March 17, 2021 that Florida’s curriculum will “expressly exclude…Critical Race Theory.” DeSantis declared,“There’s no room in our classrooms for things like Critical Race Theory. Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money.”
In his announcement, DeSantis unveiled a $106 million proposal to promote civics education and civics literacy in public schools.
“Our schools are supposed to give people a foundation of knowledge, not supposed to be indoctrination centers, where you’re trying to push specific ideologies,” DeSantis said at a press conference in Naples, Florida.
Under this proposal, the Florida Department of Education will be instructed to set up the Florida Civic Seal of Excellence, which according to News4Jax, is “a new professional endorsement for civics education.” DeSantis announced that teachers who finish the training will be able to receive a $3,000 bonus.
“Let me be clear: there’s no room in our classrooms for things like critical race theory,” DeSantis remarked. “Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money.”
Former President Donald Trump has viciously attacked critical race theory, describing it as “toxic propaganda” that will“destroy our country”. In the final months of his presidency Trump instructed all federal agencies to halt all funding to any training that “teaches or suggests” that America is an inherently racist country.
DeSantis believes that critical race theory is capable of fostering division.
“They’re trying to make people view each other based on race, I want to do the opposite, I want to treat people as individuals. I want to treat people based on character, but when you put this curriculum in, it ends up creating more divisions,” he commented.”
Republicans are finally getting serious about fighting back against Marxist indoctrination in schools. However, it may be too little, too late; Black Lives Matter terrorists are already on the march, with institutional backing, to devastate Western Civilization.
