Cawthorn Introduces Bill to Prevent Biden Administration Funding of Critical Race Theory
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 12, 2021
Today, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) introduced the Protect Equality and Civics Education (PEACE) Act, which will prevent the Department of Education from using taxpayer dollars to fund its radical, anti-American critical race theory priorities.
"America’s classrooms are the cradle of Democracy. Critical race theory is a cowardly attempt, by those who hate this nation, to rob the cradle and rewrite American history in one swift move. The Ayatollahs in Iran train their children to hate America abroad, now the radical left wants to save Iran the trouble and teach our next generation to hate America at home. Critical race theory is dangerous because it is a lie. America was built on a dream of freedom and opportunity not hate and division, this dream still echoes through the halls of American Democracy, although far too often it is relegated to the shadows by those on the left. This legislation will ensure that critical race theory is dismantled and that American children are taught true American history, not false anarchical hysteria," said Rep. Madison Cawthorn.
"America is not a racist country. We are a collection of the failures and successes of past generations to create a nation grounded in the idea that all people are created equal. That is what our schools should be teaching our youth, that no matter your background, there is room for you to succeed in America. This bill will prevent the Biden administration from indoctrinating our children with a left-wing, racist ideology," said Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Republican Leader of the Committee on Education and Labor and co-sponsor of the bill.
