Despite the fact that Republican leaders in the state rolled over to the political left and voted to remove the Children of the Confederacy plaque from the Texas State House, polling shows that Texan voters overwhelmingly support historical monuments in the state.

“Texans back monument protection by 64-26, with support from 60% of Hispanics and 35% of African-Americans,” said a memo by the Courageous Conservatives PAC.

According to the poll, 11 percent of black voters and 14 percent of Hispanic voters were undecided. A full two-thirds of Spanish-speaking Texan voters support preserving the monuments.

The poll comes in the wake of a unanimous vote by spineless GOP leaders in Texas to remove the confederate plaque. Unsurprisingly, the GOP establishment in Texas is out-of-touch with voters.

“The board’s governing members, which include Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Speaker Dennis Bonnen, voted on Friday to take the plaque down,” according to The Dallas Morning News.

All three Republican leaders constructed a scenario that allowed the plaque to be removed using a questionable interpretation of law by Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton in which he deemed the decision to be within the purview of the State Preservation Board.

But not all Republican lawmakers in Texas are so weak-kneed.

Rep. James White, R-Hillister, a black man, is fighting along with colleagues “to mandate that the location of relocated monuments must be approved by the Legislature, the Texas Historical Commission or the State Preservation Board.” They want to make sure that any historical monuments that are moved end up in places of prominence, so that history is not simply erased on a whim. White put forth a bill called the “Texas Hero Protection Act.”

White reportedly said that the bill “would protect a monument or picture of Jefferson Davis just as much as it would protect a monument or a picture of the Buffalo Soldiers.”

BIG: Trump Bans Federal Contractors From Engaging in Hateful Critical Race Theory Indoctrination

No more race-based indoctrination.

Published

Weeks after banning the use of hateful critical race theory indoctrination sessions among federal agencies, President Donald Trump is expanding the CRT ban to companies that receive lucrative federal government contracts.

The President announced he is expanding the ban to cover private government contractors in a series of Tuesday tweets.

The ban on governmental contractors will doubtlessly instill panic in the CEO’s of powerful Fortune 500 companies, who love to tout their supposed virtue by staging race-based trainings on their often unwilling employees. Many of these companies are largely dependent on payments from the United States government, despite masquerading as a “free enterprise.”

The President’s executive order on the matter refutes the liberal identity-politics doctrine alleging that some people are inherently oppressive or evil on the basis of their race.

The ban’s coverage of contractors that do business with the United States military may be the most significant. Organizations such as Sandia National Laboratories, which is a longstanding federal nuclear research institutions, were busted staging hateful “trainings” in which white male employees were coerced into repeating progressive and BLM-style drivel.

Christopher Rufo, whose reporting may have been essential in bringing hateful CRT trainings to President Trump’s attention, has obtained a copy of the executive order banning its practitioners from receiving government contracts. View it here.
