Teachers in an Iowa school district are being instructed to classify President Trump’s signature theme “Make America Great Again” as a form of racism and white supremacy, according to slides in a presentation that was leaked to media.
Article by Art Moore from WND.
Newsmax TV host Benny Johnson, who posted some of the slides on Twitter, called it evidence that Critical Race Theory is being used as a political weapon against Republicans.
The training is required for all educators and employees of the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency, one of the largest school districts in Iowa.
Noting that Trump won Iowa by nine points in 2020, carrying 94 of 99 counties, teachers effectively will be branding the majority of the states residents as racists.
“It’s not education,” Johnson said, it’s “naked political vengeance using the state education system and our children’s educators.”
At the time of the presentation in April, a bill was working its way through the Iowa legislature banning “mandatory diversity training for state and local government employees.” The bill now has become law.
The slide that lists “Make America Great Again” as white supremacist puts the following in the same category:
- Columbus Day
- American Immigration Law
- “Mass Incarceration”
- “Denying white privilege”
- Believing America is “post racial”
- Believing people are part of a “human family”
Among the others slides was one that presented “Terms for Deeper Understanding.” The teachers are to find defintions for the terms at two websites that feature CRT advocates Robin DiAngelo and Ibram X. Kendi along with CRT creators Jean Stefancic and Richard Delgado.
Notes for the facilitator of the slide show suggest attendees be asked to question their own beliefs and ponder if they might be racist for agreeing with the term “Make America Great Again.”
The presentation concludes with urging instructors to “plan next steps for our shared learning and organizational growth in the fall.”
The reading list includes the books “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo, “Racial Equity Tools Glossary,” “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi,” and “Eurocentric Curriculum.”
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
