This could be one of the most important pieces of legislation in decades.
According to a new report released by The Federalist, House GOP members have just introduced new legislation that will CUT funding of schools that teach fake history that misleads students. The legislation comes as leftists have been trying to use fake history to spread misinformation about America’s past.
Cutting Funding For Fake History
According to the report, a new bill has just been introduced by Colorado Rep. Ken Buck and Georgia Rep. Rick Allen. The legislation would bar federal funds from being given to schools that teach propaganda referred to as the “1619 Project”.
The 1619 Project originated with The New York Times, and has been long infecting students with bogus history and baseless claims that are ultimately un-American.
According to Rep. Buck:
“The 1619 Project teaches children a historically inaccurate account of our nation’s history. Federal funding should not go towards schools that teach flawed and inaccurate curriculum in classrooms. We should be able to acknowledge the stains on our nation’s history while still continuing to celebrate the good our country has done.”
The curriculum, which was created by the failing New York Times, has already reportedly reached a horrifying 4,500 classrooms. And could potentially reach more unless Republicans take action now, as they are doing.
Tom Cotton Joins Fight In U.S. Senate
Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas has also joined the fight against the divisive and misleading content meant to undermine America.
In fact, Senator Cotton actually introduced his own bill in the U.S. Senate back in July. Cotton said that the New York Times material is total “left-wing garbage.”
Cotton went even further, stating:
“Not a single cent of federal funding should go to indoctrinate young Americans.”
