“bill would prohibit the armed forces from directly promoting the core tenets of critical race theory”
One of the most astonishing things of the last year has been seeing the left successfully migrate woke culture into every aspect of American life, including the United States Military.
Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who is a veteran, is now introducing a bill which seeks to block the military from Critical Race Theory indoctrination.
Chris Rufo reports at City Journal:
Senator Cotton’s Stand
Tomorrow, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton will introduce legislation to ban critical race theory trainings in the United States military. The bill is concise, and desperately needed…
The premise of Senator Cotton’s legislation is that the military should encourage its members to “love the United States,” defend the “founding principles of the United States,” and maintain policies that treat people as “human beings with equal dignity and protection under the law.” Critical race theory, according to the findings in the bill, undermines these three goals by presenting the United States as a racist, oppressive nation and by encouraging racial division under the guise of “social justice.”
Cotton’s legislation would put an end to this. (Disclosure: I reviewed and provided feedback on an initial draft of this legislation.) The bill would prohibit the armed forces from directly promoting the core tenets of critical race theory: that “the United States of America is a fundamentally racist Nation;” that “an individual, by virtue of his or her race, is inherently racist or oppressive;” and that “an individual, because of his or her race, bears responsibility for the actions committed by other members of his or her race.” The bill also includes a provision against segregating members of the armed forces by race, which has become common practice in many CRT training programs.
Chris Rufo is right. This is needed.

So important, thank you Tom! ?

It should be extended to Universities and schools.

The big question is whether or not this would pass.
I think the chances are slim/none, but then I've become quite the pessimist as years have gone by and the race-hustlers have taken over.
Still, I appreciate the effort, and to the extent that it shines a light on this stupidity as it has seeped throughout out military.

Other Republicans need to get behind this. Hold press conferences with veterans to explain why it’s so important. Just keep pushing. This is a fight worth having.
