The federal government bureaucracy is chock full of raging liberals who call the Democratic Party home, which helps explain the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is defying a recent executive order from President Donald Trump.
The president issued an executive order upon learning that some federal agencies are conducting training sessions related to the myth of white privilege and the left’s toxic critical race theory, requiring them to “cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions.”
The Office of Management and Budget was directed by the order to issue guidance on implementation.
However, the CDC appears to be moving forward with a planned session, according to Discovery Institute Research Fellow Christopher Rufo.
He tweeted: “I’ve obtained leaked documents that outline the CDC’s plan to ‘examine the mechanisms of systemic racism’ and address ‘White supremacist ideology.'”
BOMBSHELL: The @CDCgov is moving forward with a critical race theory training program—in violation of @POTUS' executive action.
I've obtained leaked documents that outline the CDC's plan to "examine the mechanisms of systemic racism" and address "White supremacist ideology."

Rufo shared the referenced documents, were participants are instructed to “address institutionalized racism,” in order to “really set things right in the garden.”
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. pic.twitter.com/0EfmHKi2WD

Characterizing racism as a “public health crisis,” one of the planned sessions blames “systemic racism” for “police killings of unarmed Black and Brown men and women.”
Suggesting the story is “spinning out of control,” Rufo noted that there still has been no comment from Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the CDC.
For what it’s worth, Redfield is fairly active on social media.
“We should be fighting a pandemic, but our Center for Disease Control is violating a presidential order to push ‘critical race theory,'” he opined in another tweet.
This story is rapidly spinning out of control for @CDCgov—and still no comment from @CDCDirector. We should be fighting a pandemic, but our Center for Disease Control is violating a presidential order to push “critical race theory.”https://t.co/KlWRRfKW6n

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., questioned whether there has been a violation of federal law in holding the training sessions, calling on Congress to launch an investigation in an interview last week with Fox News.
“I think that the president’s action here to stop funding is absolutely appropriate,” the lawmaker said. “I personally wonder if there has been a federal law violation. It’s not clear that these agencies actually had authority under congressional appropriations to spend that money, the way that they were doing it. So, I really wonder if we got some federal legal issues.”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to Rufo from Twitter:
As if there wasn’t already evidence that CDC was rogue for most of the pandemic…

“The…sessions also advise CDC employees …they must “target” certain “societal barriers to achieving health equity” including a “narrow focus on the individual,” the “myth of American exceptionalism,” and the “myth of meritocracy,” defined ‘If you work hard you will make it.’“

This doesn’t just push CRT this is a 13 wk indoctrination to turn racism into a ‘public health crisis’! If Covid is overdone, wait until we see what they are going to do with the ‘disease’ of racism. Straight line to freedom of speech(and thought). Read 1984!

Government Departments, such as the @CDC are serving ONLY at the pleasure of the President whose constitutional status as chief executive, holder of the “executive power” is granted in Article II.

The director should be fired immediately!

Groupism… not helping humanity at all.

An interesting thing about Critical Race Theory is its claim to be a social “science,” the pseudo-scientific language of “three levels of racism” and “the mechanisms” of systemic racism, etc. Grifters like Robin DiAngelo know how persuasive this claim is for their long con.

The CDC better answer for this! Public trust is being lost in a big way. They are worried about training people are some nonsensical concepts revolving around critical race theory instead of focusing on the worst pandemic of our lifetime. This is disgraceful!
