Trump Halts Federal Funding of 'Critical Race Theory'

Russ Vought, the Director of Office of Management and Budget, announced yesterday via a tweet:
The days of taxpayer funded indoctrination trainings that sow division and racism are over. Under the direction of @POTUS we are directing agencies to halt critical race theory trainings immediately.
Government-funded Critical Race Theory studies have resulted in required attendance by white-employees at some government agencies, including the FBI, at courses "teaching" them that they are inherently racist.

From a Vought memo:
For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have
been required to attend trainings where they are told that "virtually all White people contribute to racism" or where they are required to say that they "benefit from racism." According to press reports, in some cases these training have further claimed that there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job...The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions.
The defunding is a speed bump on a very dangerous and fast-moving radical left-wing philosophy.

It is better than nothing but it will not result in ending CRT promotion by leftists.

And useful idiot neoconservatives will imply a racist motive.



  1. This great news! Anyone who tells me that I have 'white privilege' or would spout such drivel would get a swift get in their ass. 'White privilege' is every bit as racist as the n-word. It's baffling how moronic crap like this even gets started.

  2. Didn't go far enough. Every organization pushing, teaching, or enforcing this drivel should be omnediuiately barred from receiving any federal funds - grants, contracts, loans, etc.

    1. Sorry for the typos, the word should be "immediately".
