Sen. Ted Cruz Introduces Bill to Block Federal Funding For Critical Race Theory Training

By Cassandra Fairbanks

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has introduced a bill which would prohibit federal funding for any agency or recipient of federal funding to teach Critical Race Theory (CRT) during workplace training.

Sen. Cruz introduced the END CRT Act on Thursday as a companion to a similar bill introduced by Utah Rep. Burgess Owens in May.

In a statement from his office about the bill, Cruz referred to the controversial teachings as “Marxist ideology” that sees the world as a battle between races, not classes.

“The federal government has no right to force a political agenda onto Americans, especially one that aims to tear down our institutions and divide us based on race. Critical Race Theory originated out of the critical race studies movement,” the senator said in the statement. “It is a Marxist ideology that sees the world as a battle, not between the classes – as classical Marxism does – but between the races. This is inherently bigoted.”

“On President Biden’s first day in office, he rescinded the Trump administration’s commonsense executive order ensuring no government funding goes to anti-American or racist and sexist training, like CRT, in the workplace. President Biden’s decision was unsurprising but shows the Democratic Party will stop at nothing to indoctrinate Americans. I am proud to introduce this bill to block federal funding for CRT and ensure the U.S. government doesn’t contribute to this radical ideology.”

Rep. Owens also commented on the bill, comparing CRT teachings to the Jim Crow South.

“I grew up attending segregated schools in the Jim Crow South during a time when people were treated differently based on the color of their skin,” Owens said. “Critical Race Theory preserves this way of thinking and undermines civil rights, constitutionally guaranteed equal protection before the law, and U.S. institutions at large. This is the United States of America, and no one should ever be subjected to the discrimination that our laws so clearly prohibit.”

On President Joe Biden’s first day in office he revoked President Trump’s executive order prohibiting federal agencies, federal contractors, and federal grant recipients from providing workplace training to their employees that use any form of blame-focused training such as race or sex scapegoating or stereotyping.

Cruz and Owens bills aim to preserve Trump’s original order.

    TOTALLY agree. We have to fight off this communist uprising. NOTHING good will come from it. Look at the former Soviet Union, the current CCP, North Korea…..
    Oh yes, these people have TOTAL freedom to vote for who they want – so long as it is for the current communist agenda…..

    America – you are heading the same way – you have to STOP IT!
    If commie-law Harris takes full control, you guys are FUCKED.

    Good to know. At least Cruz is trying to throw a stop stick under the clown car on fire that is the Xiden Admin currently hurtling over a cliff and taking the rest of us with it. Capitol Hill is so broken and corrupt, I don’t think it can be fixed.

    Thank goodness! Pure propaganda.

    Thank you Cassandra for this article. What can the public do to support this bill?

  5. LovieDovie says:

    When RINO Paul Ryan was the speaker, he wouldn’t put out ANY legislation because he knew the numbers weren’t in the senate.
    I’d rather have folks like Cruz TRY than just sit back and do nothing.
    We Conservatives have got to start rubbing it in the face of the Marxists.
    We can’t take it sitting down.

    I see people complaining that this type of action is just theater on Cruz’ part, but when the issues of CRT were being pushed during the Trump administration, the Republicans had only a tiny bit more leverage than they have now. It won’t pass now and it wouldn’t have passed then. If Cruz isn’t allowed to put out this kind of bill now when it is mostly symbolic, then when was he supposed to put it out? He doesn’t have endless resources to constantly have a staff coming up with legislation that checks boxes for the right’s goals or for constitutionalist-type efforts.

    It will at least force democrats to continue to dig the “CRT isn’t being taught” hole that is a semantic argument.

    This is really good reporting, it would be great if Tim pool kept the promises he made in the launch video of the record breaking SCNR / Subverse wefunder and delivered this kind of reporting there as well. Maybe then all those investors wouldn’t feel like they were lied to.

    Call me cynical, but this looks like nothing more than an ineffective play to his base, which I will do nothing more than to associate criticism of CRT with someone “reasonable people” aren’t allowed to be seen associating with

    He knows it won’t pass. I’m so fucking tired of these people only taking the initiative when they know they don’t have the ability to follow through. DC is the real Hollywood
