Utah is now the latest state to make a move towards banning critical race theory (CRT) from public school education, with House speaker Brad R. Wilson holding a session at the State House of Representatives to discuss the issue.
He sent a letter to legislatures Tuesday, asking them to return to the state house on Wednesday to talk about two propositions: A bill in support of Second Amendment rights the citizens of the state and another bill to push the Utah State Board of Education to ban critical race theory from public education.
A copy was shared on Twitter by Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. It goes as follows:
“[S]ince the adjournment of the 2021 General Session of the Sixty-fourth Legislature of the State of Utah, matters have arisen that require the immediate attention of the House of Representatives.”
First in line for discussion is:
“A resolution that identifies the need for support in Utah statutes of the Second Amendment rights of Utah citizens and encourages continued discussion of how to strengthen state statutes, including discussion of designating Utah as a sanctuary state.”
The other bill to be discussed is:
“A resolution that strongly recommends that the Utah State Board of Education review standards for curriculum and prohibit the inclusion of critical race theory in curriculum.”

A number of states have also been doing their part to keep critical race theory at bay from children.
According to a Chrissy Clark report, teachers have tried to hide critical race theory by leaving the term and some of its associated phrases out of curriculum, but the key point – that the United States is an inside-out racist country and each interaction should be viewed through the lens of a racial power struggle – is still present.
“Of course, curriculum designers do not insert the words ‘critical race theory’ in children’s curriculum — they put it into practice by generating lessons that introduce racial grievances and calls for advocacy in virtually every subject.”
In case you were wondering, every single Democrat voted against this.

Other states are also working to eradicate CRT, with the Tennessee State House passing a bill that would help the cause. The governor of Idaho signed the ban into law, and Florida’s governor told the state education department to ban CRT from public schools.
