White House directs federal agencies to cancel race-related training sessions it calls ‘Un-American propaganda’


President Trump is moving to revamp federal agencies’ racial sensitivity trainings, casting some of them “divisive” and “un-American,” according to a memo by the White House Office of Management and Budget.

In the two-page memo, OMB Director Russell Vought says that Trump has asked him to prevent federal agencies from spending millions in taxpayer dollars on these training sessions. Vought says OMB will instruct federal agencies to come up with a list of all contracts related to training sessions involving “white privilege” or “critical race theory,” and do everything possible within the law to cancel those contracts, the memo states.

The memo, released on Friday, also tells all federal agencies to identify and if possible cancel contracts that involve teaching that America is an “inherently racist or evil country.”

“The President has directed me to ensure that federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions,” the memo states.

All of the military racists. Desperate move, but I see his pea brain believing in it. Hog Head Barr nodded his approval.

11. I suspect we will find that many such training programs resulted from lawsuits.

They are likely the outcome of a Judge's finding and rulings. In which case they are legally required and can't simply be canceled by royal fiat. Trump and Miller screwed with the law once again because they don't know or care what it says, nor what a Judge they don't own has to say.

It may also be true that they are authorized by Congress and therefore Trump can't curtail the contracts since he doesn't have that authority.

Up yours, your majesty!

14. So equal protection of the law and the formation of a more perfect union is now unAmerican.

If the President of a country can compare the murder of an African American in government custody to a missed putt, that country may be systemically racist.

15. White fragility is at the heart of Trumpism.
