Tom Cotton Wins First Victory In Battle Against CRT

Videos by OutKick

Senator Tom Cotton scored a 50-49 victory with his amendment to prevent federal tax dollars from being used to promote Critical Race Theory in public pre-K and K-12 schools.

“They want to teach our children that America’s not a good nation, but a racist nation,” Cotton said during a speech on the Senate floor. “Those teachings are wrong, and our tax dollars shouldn’t support them.”

The Stop CRT Act bars federal funds earmarked for K-12 schools from being used to promote Critical Race Theory. It also prevents K-12 teachers and students from being compelled “to affirm” the theory.

West Virginia Senator (D.) Joe Manchin crossed the aisle and voted with Republicans.

“My amendment will ensure that federal funds aren’t used to indoctrinate children as young as pre-K to hate America,” Cotton added. “Our future depends on the next generation of kids loving America and loving each other as fellow citizens, no matter their race.”

It’s believed that there are 30 schools across 15 states using the book Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness, which characterizes whiteness as the devil. One passage from the book says that “Whiteness is a bad deal. It always was.”

“You get: stolen land, stolen, riches, special favors. WHITENESS gets: to mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors, loved ones, and all fellow humans of COLOR for the purpose of profit,” author Anastasia Higginbotham writes.

Now go indulge in some of Higginbotham’s Instagram work and tell me if you want your kids being indoctrinated by this woman.

  1. The fact this is even making it to a vote points to how hollow a victory this is. Why did you leave out that this is a vote for items in the 3.5T nation killing budget that Rs had sworn to fight against passing and now are preparing to cave on just like the 1.5T “infrastructure” hoax?

  2. Yep, who would vote for this? Those who hate America and want to destroy it. Democrats. There are some sick, self hating white motherfuckers running this country. Glad there are folks like Tom Cotton.
