U.S. Sen. Rick Scott took on the pro-abortion activists clamoring about the seemingly pending doom of Roe v. Wade. Scott appeared to take a page from the book of the “What is a woman?” activists challenging gender ideology.

US Sen. Scott Of Florida Leads Effort For Senate Condemnation Of Critical Race Theory In Schools

U.S. Sen. Rick Scott of Florida, joined by two other GOP senators, has introduced a bill to condemn Critical Race Theory, the academic exercise that argues all of America’s systems are rife with racism to benefit white people.

The resolution sponsored by Scott characterizes CRT “as a prejudicial ideological tool, rather than an educational tool, and should not be taught in K–12 classrooms as a way to teach students to judge individuals based on sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin.”

Moreover, CRT “seeks to portray the United States, not as a united Nation of people, families, and communities striving for a common purpose, but rather a Nation of many victimized groups based on sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin, the resolution states. And its teachings “stand in contrast to the overarching goal” of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is “to prevent discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in the United States.”

Joining Scott in seeking Senate denunciation of CRT are Sens. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Mike Braun of Indiana.

Scott’s resolution further notes that CRT “serves to resegregate institutions of education and balkanize students into groups by race and ethnicity,” and its intention is to indoctrinate school children “to eventually transform the United States by stigmatizing its economic system and creating a hatred of all its institutions.”

The senators, in the document, also condemn CRT for reinforcing “the soft bigotry of low expectations by substituting systemic racism as the determining factor in academic achievement gaps rather than the ongoing failure of policymakers and the education system to provide students of color necessary educational opportunities.”

To show how this folly metastasizes, the resolution points out a few examples of how CRT is manifest:

The discredited, race-baiting 1619 Project of The New York Times is taught in 4,500 classrooms nationwide;

The California Department of Education Foundation argues that math instruction “promotes the concept that White supremacy manifests itself through the focus on finding the right answers”;

That Madison Metropolitan School District requires staff to participate in a mandatory 21 hours of “professional development”  that says teachers leading a classroom, keeping a class on schedule, and using the term “student” are a “part of White, Western thought and are racist”;

The San Diego Unified School District Board of Education voted last fall to change “discriminatory” grading practices, and no longer mandates that students to turn in homework on time “in order to be an anti-racist school district”;

The senators also note that state lawmakers are fighting back by introducing bills to prevent schools from teaching CRT principles such as America is “fundamentally: racist or sexist and that an individual’s race or gender may make them “responsible for actions committed in the past.”

This is needed because the federal government won’t help.

The resolution points out that in the waning days of the Trump administration, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights posted a webinar that showed how the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits “racially exclusive practices.

Yet, under President Joe Biden, the department has archived the webinar and labeled it “not for reliance.”

Scott and the other senators thus call on the Senate to condemn racism “in all forms,” and encourages the American people “to eliminate racism and defend the civil rights of all individuals,” especially within the nation’s education system.

Additionally, the resolution calls for compliance with existing civil rights laws, for support for states’ efforts to protect “curriculum transparency” and school choice, and for condemnation of professional development exercises that focus on ostracizing one individual or group from others and the requirement of teachers to receive CRT education as a prerequisite for certification.

In a statement, Scott said, “The far-left wants Americans to believe that our nation is inherently racist and bad. They want to discredit the values America was founded on. They’re wrong.”

“We can’t stand by and allow ’woke’ liberals to divide our nation,” he added. “Students in Florida and every state across this nation deserve better and I’m proud to lead my colleagues today in a resolution to stand up against this dangerous policy.”
