It’s all about the Benjamins. And the democrats have a lot of Benjamins floating around all over the place so that their leftist friends can get grants and all kinds of government handouts for their tyrannical and socialist agenda. Instead of governing, the Democrats participate in a mob operation of corruption, using taxpayer money to fund their elections and oppression of the public.

So it’s no surprise to anyone when Fox News reported that money is being used from the Democrat’s American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act to teach Critical Race Theory in places like Illinois, California and New York. Money that was advertised as desperately needed funds to make sure that schools “re- open safely.” It was a matter of life and death, they said.

We already know that the schools have been using the so-called COVID-19 money for snow cone machines, teacher bonuses, new gymnasiums and all sorts of other things that aren’t COVID-19 related.

California was awarded $15.1 billion to reopen schools and their plan included “implicit bias training.” They used their money for “anti-bias strategies,” “environmental literacy,” “ethic studies” and “LGBTQ+ cultural competency.”

New York got $9 billion in ARP funds, some of which was used to make sure that DEI was a priority at all local education agencies.

Illinois got $5.1 billion in ARP funds and they implemented strategies with “an emphasis on equity and diversity” and trained on things like “anti-racism.”

Do you support individual military members being able to opt out of getting the COVID vaccine?

The White House had actually said that this was going to happen in their rhetoric about the money providing schools “with the resources they need to safely reopen and fully serve their students.”

“Fully serve” is in the eye of the beholder – and to Democrats it means to push their ideology and corrupt young minds so that they think and vote like future Democrats.

With Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) being one of the White House’ main priorities and implemented in EVERY department of the federal government, it’s not surprising to find out that the U.S. Dept. of Education report recommended that the states use their ARP funding to “reexamine and strengthen school policies” including their need for a “culture shifts” so schools “reopen equitably for all students.”

These shifts include having districts “implement strategies designed for systemic change at the school and local level” for “safe, inclusive and supporting learning environments.”

As Dire Straits sings, “money for nothing.” Nothing COVID-19 related at least.
