Andrea Widburg has the story at American Thinker, with plenty of documentary explanation: Trump strikes a second, massive blow against Critical Race theory. It's hard to overemphasize how important Trump's new move is. Trump's first executive order against Critical Race Theory indoctrination in government agencies--which he enforced when CDC tried to ignore it--was a big first step toward healing the nation from Leftist inflicted hate mongering. This new executive order extends the ban on CRT indoctrination to:
government contractors, and
"grantees" (i.e., among others, institutions of education).
The scope of this ban is now, essentially, society wide. It adds the ban to two more fundamental societal institutions--the military, with its vast network of contractors, and education--taking them out of the indoctrination game, bringing the Gramscian long march of the Left through our basic institutions to a grinding halt. Control of indoctrination in the military and in educational institutions has been key to the poisoning of our youth's minds with Leftist ideology. Universities can "resist" the ban, but they'll be doing it without federal money.
Obviously this is still the first step. Trump's reelection is an essential next step if we are to see the full fruits of this bold initiative. In particular, if we are to see how far the provision regarding "grantees" and contractors may extend. For example, do social media and tech companies qualify as "government contractors". My guess is that most of them do, in one way or another. This executive order could be a far more effective and expeditious way of addressing the problem of Leftist indoctrination and censorship than years long anti-trust lawsuits. Those lawsuits can begin and continue, but effective change and control over Leftist attempts to silence opposition will not have to wait on the results of antitrust litigation.
Getting a new conservative voice on the SCOTUS will be another big step in this direction.
The stakes in this election could not be more clear.
Excerpts from Widburg's article:
CRT’s modern eugenics, which started in academia, is aimed squarely at whites. Its grotesque, anti-American theory has flowed like sewage out of academia into government and the corporate world.
Last week, though, Trump put a stop to it in government agencies. And yesterday, he expanded that prohibition to the military, government contractors, and organizations receiving government grants (which hits academia squarely in the pocketbook):
Donald J. Trump
A few weeks ago, I BANNED efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies. Today, I've expanded that ban to people and companies that do business...
...with our Country, the United States Military, Government Contractors, and Grantees. Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t, there’s nothing in it for you!
