Texas Bill Banning Tenets of Critical Race Theory and Action Civics Sent to Governor

The Texas legislature has approved a bill that would ban the teaching of concepts associated with Critical Race Theory and “action civics.” The bill has now been sent to Gov. Greg Abbott (R). In an interview with Yahoo News published Friday, Texas state Rep. Steve Toth (R), the primary author of House Bill 3979, said the bill is in keeping with the message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “This bill is a direct reflection of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,” Toth said. “It echoes Dr. King’s wish that we should judge people on the content of their character, not their skin.” The bill prohibits teachers from discussing concepts related to Critical Race Theory (CRT), a Marxist philosophy that embraces the notion that all social and cultural issues should be viewed through the lens of race. The legislation particularly bans teaching or discussing the ideas that “one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex,” or that “an individual, by virtue of the individuals’ race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex.” The bill prohibits teaching that “an individual should feel

America First Conservatives Bash Daily Wire’s ‘Pathetic’ Fundraiser For AOC’s Abuela

Neoconservative media organization The Daily Wire is receiving heavy criticism from conservatives on social media for orchestrating a GoFundMe publicity stunt that aims to raise tens of thousands of dollars for socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s grandmother. While AOC has drawn heavy criticism for complaining about her grandmother’s living conditions while enjoying a luxurious lifestyle in D.C., the Daily Wire’s fundraiser has been castigated for extreme tone-deafness at a time when conservatives are enduring record levels of financial persecution. “Just over a week ago, my abuela fell ill,” Ocasio-Cortez originally wrote on Twitter. “I went to Puerto Rico to see her- my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID. This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR. People are being forced to flee ancestral homes, & developers are taking them.” Although Cortez admitted later on in the thread that “for the record – my abuela is doing okay,” and “She had a place to go to and be cared for,” the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh quickly organized a page for AOC’s “abuela” on GoFundMe that was heavily promoted by other Daily Wire personnel. We’ve raised nearly 10 thousand

Hillary Clinton Riles Up Twitter by Wrongly Claiming 6 January Rioters ‘Killed’ Capitol Policeman

A total of five people died as a result of the storming of the Capitol by pro-Trump protesters. However, only one of them was actually killed: a protester shot in the neck by one of the police officers defending lawmakers, something that netizens were quick to remind to the ex-presidential candidate. Commenting on a move by Republican senators to filibuster the passage of a bill on the 6 January commission, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton alleged that the GOP did this in order to conceal the truth about what happened on the day of the Capitol riot. And apparently, Clinton indeed needs a dedicated commission herself to get all the facts about that day straight, because in the same tweet she erroneously claimed the rioters killed a Capitol police officer on that day. An angry mob attacked our Capitol, our lawmakers, and our election. They killed a policeman. And Republican leaders would rather we all not know more about what happened. — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) May 28, 2021 Indeed, even before the dust from the riot settled, the first reports suggested that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, 42, “collapsed” and died after sustaining injuries

Matt Gaetz Attacks Sex Trafficking Allegations as Being Part of “Organized Criminal Extortion” Scheme

Representative Matt Gaetz has slammed allegations of sex trafficking leaked to the New York Times as being part of an “organised criminal extortion scheme” against him and his family. On Tuesday evening, the New York Times broke a story that Representative Gaetz was being investigated by the Department of Justice for alleged “sex trafficking.” The investigation, allegedly opened under Bill Barr, the former Attorney General, was looking at whether Gaetz “had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him,” and “whether Mr Gaetz violated federal sex trafficking laws.” Speaking to Jonathan Swan from Axios, Gaetz slammed the allegations as “searing as they are false.” When asked what the charges could relate to, Gaetz told Swan that in his single days he “provided” for women he dated. “You know, I’ve paid for flights, for hotel rooms. I’ve been, you know, generous as a partner. I think someone is trying to make that look criminal when it is not,” he said. Not only were the sex trafficking allegations completely false, Gaetz said, but they are “rooted in an extortion effort against my family for $25 million… [by an ex-Department of Justice employee] in exchange for making

‘Verbal stumble’ or blatant lie? Biden says US had no vaccine when he took office as new admin criticizes Trump’s jab rollout

Joe Biden, who was fully vaccinated before his inauguration, has been accused of playing loose with the facts after stating that there was no Covid-19 shot when he entered office. But some insist it was a harmless verbal slip. Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper at a town hall event on Tuesday, the US president explained in a rather disjointed way that the United States lacked both vaccines and health workers capable of administering them when he moved into the White House last month.  “The biggest thing though…it’s one thing that the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator. How do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?” he said.  The only problem: Both the Moderna and the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines were given emergency use authorization by the US Food and Drug Administration before Biden was sworn in on January 20. In fact, Biden himself received his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on December 21. The procedure was even televised live in an effort to reassure Americans that the drug was safe. As CNN reported, when Biden received his second dose of the drug on January 11, some nine million Americans had already
