Trump Calls for 'Critical Race Theory’ to Be Banned on Every Level
'Republicans at every level should move to immediately ban critical race theory'
Donald Trump blasted the far-left and Democrats for pushing critical race theory being taught in schools and urged Republicans to fight against the radical ideology.
Trump also took aim at the Biden administration for attempting to indoctrinate America’s schoolchildren with poisonous and divisive left-wing doctrine” by supporting CRT.
Trump said Critical Race Theory was "the exact opposite of the American belief that we are all created equal in the holy image of God.”
During a speech to North Carolina Republicans, Trump focused on the controversial topic.
Trump also praised North Carolina State House Republicans on passing limits on the use of CRT but also called for Republicans to follow suit.
“Republicans at every level should move to immediately ban critical race theory in schools, and we should ban it in workplaces, we should ban it in our states, and we should ban in the federal government. And it should be done immediately,” Trump said. [RELATED] Armed Leftist Group Warns: 'We Will Kill Everything White in Sight'
Trump's remarks earned him cheers and applause from the audience.
"If government-run schools are going to indoctrinate children with radical ideas, Republicans must immediately pass legislation to empower every parent in America to opt-out of the insanity and send their child to the public-private charter or religious school of their choice."
Trump also slammed “socialist Democrats” for pushing their radical ideology into schools.
“They slander our country, disparage our founding, divide our children,” he said.
Trump said, “phony civic education" was being pushed by Democrats.
“Can you believe that? And make themselves into left-wing activists,” he said.
“And how badly do they treat people on the right compared to people on the radical left.”
In April, the Biden administration announced plans to offer grants for United States history classes that teach critical race theory and the “1619 Project,” a New York Times series that depicts slavery as the centerpiece of the American narrative.
The proposed grants were offered as part of programs that dispense several million dollars a year to K-12 schools.
But critics of the 1619 Project warned the grant program to implement the left-wing curriculum in the Department of Education policy.
President of the conservative National Association of Scholars, Peter Wood, said:
“What’s really happening in the ‘Proposed Priorities’ is an effort to establish funding priorities that will shape the $1 billion per year Educating for American Democracy (EAD) bill pending in Congress."
On Friday, Biden told the class of 2021 that systemic racism is one of "the great crises of our time," and they're graduating at an "inflection point."
"And now you face another inflection point," he said.
"As we put this pandemic behind us, rebuild our economy, root out systemic racism, and tackle climate change, we’re addressing the great crises of our time with a greater sense of purpose than before."
