Or as the official name of the bill, Love America Act, should be changed to the above title.
This bill has been introduced by Missouri’s insurrectionist, Josh Hawley……and his attempt to stop the teaching of the Critical Race Theory…..in other words an attempt to re-write history…revisionism at its best.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) is the latest conservative politician to take the culture wars to the schools. On Thursday, Hawley announced that he will introduce a bill that bans critical race theory and requires schools to teach kids about the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence. Schools that violate the “Love America Act” will lose federal funding.
“The Left wants to teach our kids that America is systemically racist. That’s false and it’s meant to divide. It’s time to replace lies with the truth!” Hawley tweeted. “Let’s teach our kids what unites us as Americans – what we love together. Let’s teach them the truth,” he added.
The internet is not here for it. The Love America Act was widely panned online, in part because schools already teach about the nation’s founding (some might say exhaustively). And partly because primary schools do not teach critical race theory, an academic theory that examines United States law and history through a lens that includes the influence of slavery and systemic racism. It’s mostly taught at law schools and universities.
Conservatives have nevertheless made critical race theory, often abbreviated to simply “CRT,” a primary front in their war against what they view as excessive wokeness. In their view, it’s racist to teach about racism.
The Love America Act is among more than a dozen pieces of legislation targeting critical race theory in schools at the state level, NBC News reports.
Keep in mind that Hawley was one of the Congresspeople that basically cheered on the insurrection of 06 January…
Like the rest of the GOP they hate the Constitution and what it stands for…..and will work to misinform our children at every opportunity.
These types of slugs need to be removed from all positions of influence….
All history needs to be taught……the good, the bad and especially the ugly.
