Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) introduced a bill to ban the military from being indoctrinated with so-called critical race theory that fundamentally argues that white people are innately racist, and that America is a racist country, the Western Journal reported.
“Anti-American and racist theories, such as the Critical Race Theory, teaches students to distrust and even hate their country and fellow citizens. The United States armed forces should not promote or otherwise encourage anti-American and racist theories that demoralize and divide its members while undermining its mission to ‘bear truth, faith, and allegiance’ to the Constitution,” the bill states.
“Not only will such racist ideas undermine our troops’ faith in each other, they’ll also erode their trust in our country’s guiding principles. The United States military shouldn’t be promoting such divisive, un-American ideas,” Cotton wrote.
Some of the core subjects that critical race theory (CRT) proposes that “America is a fundamentally racist country,” or such things as a person’s moral character or worth is determined by their race, that whites bear the sin of their ancestors for having owned slaves, and that because they were born white they are racist.
Indeed, the premises of the CRT are racist and divisive toward whites because by believing in them the end result would be that whites are hated, punished, and enslaved to “pay” for what happened almost a century ago, no matter what kind of people they are today.
“Our military’s strength depends on the unity of our troops and the knowledge that America is a noble nation worth fighting for,” Cotton said when introducing the legislation.
Considering that American society and thus the military has a vast genuine diversity of races, ethnicities, and people of different walks of life, although the United States remains primarily a Caucasian country, imposing such theories could only drift into internal conflict capable of destroying the sense of unity needed in a military.
In September 2020, President Trump signed an executive order to remove critical race theory from federal institutions.
Cotton’s proposal is a response to advancing Democratic indoctrination
President Biden’s Pentagon chief, Lloyd Austin said even before taking office that he would fight to cleanse the troops “of racists and extremists.”
Recent reports denounce the use of texts promoting critical race theory in the list of reading materials for the military.
Similarly a Navy slide training leaked to the media reveals that it is okay for a military member to talk about the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement but not about other political positions opposed to it.
While the term ‘extremist’ is not clearly defined by Democrats, the direction in which the Biden administration is going is more than clear.
