Trump Admin Moves To Ban Government Agencies from Preaching 'Un-American Propaganda'; 'White Privilege' Among 'Un-American' Theories To Be Banned in Federal Programs

Trump Admin Moves To Ban Government Agencies from Preaching 'Un-American Propaganda':
President Donald Trump’s administration has ordered federal agencies to immediately start the process of defunding training seminars which use taxpayer money to teach government employees that the country is racist.
Russell Vought, director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, released a memo late Friday which explains why the president is cutting funding for such training programs.
“It has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date ‘training’ government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda,” Vought wrote in the document, which was sent to the heads of executive departments and agencies, and shared online by the White House.
“For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have been required to attend trainings where they are told that ‘virtually all White people contribute to racism’ or where they are required to say that they ‘benefit from racism.’ --->READ MORE HERE
'White Privilege' Among 'Un-American' Theories To Be Banned in Federal Programs:
A new memorandum issued Friday by the White House moves to ban federal agencies from any training that mentions "critical race theory" or "white privilege."
The memo from Russell Vought, Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), was released Friday evening. It says President Donald Trump directed the OMB to stop using federal funding to pay for training related to "'critical race theory,' 'white privilege,' or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil."
The memo comes after a July 15 Twitter thread from Christopher Rufo, the director of the Center on Wealth & Poverty (CWPM) at Discovery Institute, a conservative think tank in Seattle, Washington, about a federal training program called "Difficult Conversations About Race in Troubling Times."
The program was presented to a number of federal agencies, including the Treasury. The program, created after the protests over the death of George Floyd, was cosponsored by the Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI), a department of the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency established in 2011. --->READ MORE HERE
