CDC defies Trump, proceeds with critical race theory training despite executive order

Christopher Rufo, the man who brought President Trump’s (and America’s) attention to the issue of the toxic critical race theory trainings happening in the government, has now exposed a new bombshell. He tweeted proof today that the CDC is defying Trump’s executive order to purge CRT trainings from the government:

Instead of posting all his tweets with all the attachments, I’m just gonna post what he wrote on each tweet and you can click on it to see the attachments if you like:

The first three training sessions are focused on “racism, sexism, and other systems of structured inequality,” then teaching CDC employees that they must “address institutionalized racism” to “really set things right in the garden” of a racist nation.

In sessions 6 through 9, the CDC claims that “racism is a public health crisis” and that “systemic racism” leads to “police killings of unarmed Black and Brown men and women” and leads to “the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color.”

In sessions 10 and 11, the trainers will teach CDC employees that they must “target” and destroy the values of “focus on the individual,” the “myth of meritocracy,” the “myth of American exceptionalism,” and “White supremacist ideology.” This is textbook critical race theory.

The final session teaches CDC employees how to become activists. They will be encouraged to join an “Anti-Racism Collaborative with eight Collective Action Teams,” focused on “communications,” making scientific publications “anti-racist,” and influencing “policy and legislation.”

Rufo says he got a message that as of this morning the CDC is moving forward with all of this…

I would imagine that Trump isn’t going to like his executive order being violated like this, and he’ll probably bring the thunder on whoever is responsible for this.

In the meantime, Josh Hawley says it’s time for Congress to fix this:

Yeah, maybe after the election if we have a red wave. But even so, I won’t hold my breath.
