It's darkly hilarious that anyone thinks some kind of good-faith discussion of "cancel culture" is going on while the GOP pushes bills to outlaw discussions of racism and slavery.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is co-sponsoring a bill that would strip federal funding from any school that teaches students about the New York Times' acclaimed project on the history of slavery in America. He has previously railed against federal control of education.

On Thursday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) re-introduced his legislation "to prohibit Federal funds from being made available to teach the 1619 Project curriculum in elementary schools and secondary schools."

His original co-sponsors include McConnell (R-KY) and Republican Sens. Marsha Blackburn (TN), John Boozman (AR), Cynthia Lummis (WY), Thom Tillis (NC), and Tommy Tuberville (AL).

"We cannot continue teaching our children and our troops to believe America is an inherently evil and racist place," he tweeted.

2. Funny, I can see Hollywood talking a little about the 1619 project in TV shows and mentions

In movies. Students might not hear about it in school but popular tv shows will bring it up.

When McConnell and the gop say no Hollywood will say yes.

3. They are members of churches that teach

that Man is inherently evil by nature but seem to think that the institutions and nations created by Man cannot be evil.
