In addition to vowing to take on the Biden family’s alleged corruption by appointing a special prosecutor during his Saturday rally in Pickens, South Carolina, Trump said during his speech at the Moms for Liberty Joyful Warriors Summit on Friday that he would be slashing funding for any schools pushing the sorts of things conservatives find reprehensible, particularly when discussed with kids, such as Critical Race Theory and leftist gender ideology.
Making that vow, former President Trump said that he would do so on the first day of his second administration, cutting off federal funds to schools following the left’s lead on race, gender, and other sensitive topics. In his words: “On day one, I will sign a new executive order to cut federal funding for any school pushing Critical Race Theory, transgender insanity, and other inappropriate racial, sexual, or political content on our children.”
Trump then went on to argue that schools should be teaching things like reading, writing, and arithmetic instead of various facets of far-left ideology. To do so, he said they’d cut out things like CRT, climate change extremism, anti-American history like the 1619 Project, and gender madness. They’d replace those lessons with lessons in the useful subjects that kids should be learning. As he put it:
“Under my leadership, the 1619 Project, you remember that beauty, climate change extremists that are destroying our country… the ridiculous 87 different genders the left says there are out there, think of it, and…we’re going to cut it out. We’re going to get it out. We are going to be pressing three basic things plus reading, writing, and arithmetic.”
Continuing, former President Trump noted that the left’s ideology has become a new religion for all intents and purposes. That new, cult-like religion dominates everything they do and leads to craziness like taking kids to lewd drag shows instead of church and Sunday school, to teach them pronouns instead of prayers.
Trump, speaking about that, said, “The Marxist left, and other lunatics preaching radical ideology, have become a cult with their own creeds, and their own mantras, and their own rituals. Instead of taking children to church, they believe in taking children to drag shows. You see what’s happening?’… Instead of teaching them to say their prayers, they teach them to recite their pronouns.”
To effect his goals for the schools, Trump proposed letting parents in school districts vote out principals they’re furious with, abolishing teacher tenure to bring back accountability, and ensuring that parents have full visibility of and oversight over their child’s school’s curriculum.
He then called on the moms at the summit “to continue the noble fight that you are waging to take back school boards all across this country” and said that their tactics are working so far and showing the left that they won’t be bullied into silence, saying, “In school board races, PTA meetings, and town halls across the nation, you have taught the radical left Marxists and communists a lesson they will never forget. Don’t mess with America’s moms.”
