(CNN) Senate Republicans are holding up President Joe Biden's nominee to lead the Office of Personnel Management over concerns about her stance on critical race theory.

GOP Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri has placed a hold on Kiran Ahuja's nomination to lead the federal personnel agency "because of her history promoting radical critical race theorists," Hawley spokesperson Kelli Ford said.

"These associations merit real scrutiny, especially in light of Ms. Ahuja's nomination to a role that would allow her to reinstate race-based training sessions throughout the entire federal government," Ford said in a statement.

The hold on Ahuja's nomination is just the latest flashpoint in a broader conservative effort to push back on critical race theory, which recognizes that systemic racism is part of American society and challenges the beliefs that allow it to flourish.

1. Nikole Hannah-Jones is right

Right wing racists weaponized something that's been existence for decades and the media and progressives bought into the lie and then joined forces with them to help them take it to another level.

Nice job, guys.

9. Do tell about progressives joining the RW racists to to frame the debate to halt Bidens

nominees over critical race theory? Seious question. I'm just hearing about this and have heard no progressives joining them to ban CRT.

11. So no Progressives have joined forces with the RW to halt Biden"s appointee and ban CRT?

You said that Nikole Hannah-Jones is right about what she said. But you took it a step further and added Progressives, which were not mentioned by her, nor anywhere in the article.

I wonder why.

Right wing racists weaponized something that's been existence for decades and the media and progressives bought into the lie and then joined forces with them to help them take it to another level.

Nice job, guys.

12. I didn't say that

Not sure how you got that from my comment, which you helpfully reposted but seem not to have actually read.

I also was not aware that when commenting about an article, I am limited to discussing only what is in the article.

Good to know. :eyeroll:

13. So you aren't talking about what Nikole Hannah-Jones said that you said she was right about?

How was I to know your comment was about something else totally different that's not being discussed in this thread.

14. How were you to know?

You could have just read it.

But if you didn't understand what I wrote, now you know. Problem solved.

16. I did read it and it was clear you were agreeing with what she tweeted. And a bit more.

I comment on what is posted, not what is not posted. Thaty way I don't have a problem.

What she said that was posted in the OP

6. Of course. Many times he got to third pick and they got through.

I think he did a few during recess as well. Biden should consider doing that on some of these.

An overly-ambitious attention-*****.

18. Until Republicans blew up the process, the Blue Slip was the best way to ensure Republican

presidents got input on judicial nominations from Democratic home state senators

19. Hawley needs a "Race-Based Training Session" or 2. Or 10.

Because the term is somewhat nebulous, it can be demonized without having to provide any rationale.

Nearly every legitimate academic who teaches and writes on Social Justice uses CRT.

Nearly every bad-faith GQP propagandist who rails against it couldn't explain what CRT is, except through the slander they've focus-grouped.
