VICTORY: The President has just signed a full Executive Order abolishing critical race theory from the federal government, the military, and all federal contractors.

The president has effectively declared war on CRT—and extended the battlefield to all of our institutions.

To begin, the president explains that our nation was founded on the ideal that "all mean are created equal" and denounces critical race theory's "pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country."
The President writes that the "malign ideology" of critical race theory "is now migrating from the fringes of American society and threatens to infect core institutions of country." He cites my original reporting on the Treasury Department, Argonne National Labs, and Sandia Labs.
The ambition of the executive order is breathtaking: the President will prohibit federal funds from supporting critical race theory trainings in the federal government, in the military, and by all federal contractors.
The point on federal contractors is a major escalation: if a private company wants to work with the US government, they can no longer teach critical race theory anywhere in their offices. This could potentially disrupt CRT programs in half of the Fortune 500.
The executive order will also disrupt the flow of money to academia's critical race theory programs. The order stops all federal grants that support CRT—with the potential to cripple hundreds of academic projects moving forward.
Finally, the executive order has a strong enforcement component: all federal diversity programs must be approved directly by OMB and OPM, and agencies are directed to initiate adverse action proceedings against managers who continue to hold CRT trainings.
The executive order also opens the legal floodgates: the President instructs the Attorney General to assess whether critical race theory trainings create a "hostile work environment" and constitute a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
The President's executive order is nothing short of astonishing: he has used all of the mechanisms of power to disrupt the "ideological poison" of critical race theory—and immediately takes the fight to the bureaucracy, universities, and woke corporations. He is playing to win.
When I began my reporting, I visualized a single goal: persuading the President of the United States to abolish critical race theory in the federal government.

With this executive order, he has gone much further—and taken a dramatic step towards saving the country. Swords up!⚔️

SCOOP: Buffalo Public Schools claims “all white people” perpetuate systemic racism and forces kindergarteners to watch a video of dead black children warning them about “racist police and state-sanctioned violence.”

I've obtained whistleblower documents that will shock you.🧵
The story begins with the district's diversity czar, Fatima Morell, who developed a new antiracism curriculum and told teachers they must become “woke” and achieve “critical consciousness,” a Marxist pedagogical concept training students to identify and subvert their oppressors.
In a presentation to teachers, Morell claimed that America “is built on racism” and that “America’s sickness” leads some whites to believe that black people are “not human,” which makes it “easier to shoot [them] in the back seven times if you feel like it.”

SCOOP: A Philadelphia elementary school forced fifth-grade students to celebrate "black communism" and simulate a Black Power rally to "free Angela Davis" from prison.

I've obtained exclusive whistleblower documents and photographs from the school. Here's the story. 🧵
Last year, a fifth-grade teacher at the William D. Kelley School designed a social-studies curriculum to celebrate the political radical Angela Davis, praising the "black communist" for her fight against "inequality" and telling students to "define communist" in favorable terms.
At the end of the unit, the teacher led the ten- and eleven-year-olds into the school auditorium to "simulate" a Black Power rally to "free Angela Davis" from prison, where she had once been held on charges of murder. The students chanted "Black Power!" and "Free Angela!"

SCOOP: Students at the elite United Nations International School launched an anonymous social media campaign denouncing their teachers as "racists" and "oppressors"—and school administrators immediately caved to their demands.

Here's the full story. 🧵…
The saga began last June, when students launched an anonymous Instagram channel and threatened to publicly "cancel" their teachers and principals for their "vast history of systemic racism," "white liberal racist thinking," and "direct, intentional, repeated racial trauma."
Next, the students demanded that the school institute mandatory antiracism trainings, "decolonize" the curriculum, create "safe spaces," support the "exploration of diverse gender identities," reject the "Eurocentric focus of mainstream academia,” and teach "intersectionality."

SCOOP: A middle school in Springfield, Missouri, recently held a diversity training program that forced teachers to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix” and watch a video of “George Floyd’s last words.”

The whistleblower documents will astonish you. Let's dig in. 🧵
The training at Cherokee Middle School began with a “land acknowledgement,” claiming that “Springfield Public Schools is built on [the] ancestral territory" of Native Americans, who had been oppressed by white colonizer "violence." Image
The trainers then forced the teachers to watch a nine-minute silent video of “George Floyd’s last words.” It's a cult technique used to overload the senses of the participants and create an “emotional anchor” that serves to justify subsequent political arguments—with no debate. Image

SCOOP: A Cupertino elementary school forces third-graders to deconstruct their racial and sexual identities, then rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.”

I've obtained exclusive whistleblower documents from inside the classroom. They will shock you. 🧵
First, the teacher told the eight- and nine-year-old students that they live in a “dominant culture” of “white, middle class, cisgender, educated, able-bodied, Christian[s]” who “created and maintained” this culture in order “to hold power and stay in power.” Image
Reading from This Book Is Antiracist, the teacher taught the children the theory of "intersectionality" and claimed that “those with privilege have power over others" and that “folx who do not benefit from their social identities ... have little to no privilege and power.” ImageImage
