Sen. Ted Cruz introduced a bill Thursday that would block federal funding for teaching critical race theory in the workplace.
Cruz went on to refer to critical race theory, which teaches that the United States is inherently racist and has been adopted by companies and school districts across the country, as “Marxist ideology that sees the world as a battle, not between the classes — as classical Marxism does — but between the races.”
After calling critical race theory “inherently bigoted,” Cruz slammed the Biden administration for rescinding an order from former President Donald Trump earlier this year that declared that “no government funding goes to anti-American or racist and sexist training, like CRT, in the workplace.”
Republicans across the country have been pushing back on critical race theory, arguing that it promotes anti-white racism, while Democrats insist that opponents of the controversial teaching are racist.
