AZ Gov. Doug Ducey signs bill banning critical race theory

In the latest salvo against the controversial far-left movement known as critical race theory (CRT), Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) last week signed a bill that prevents local governmental bodies in his state from requiring workers to engage in “training or therapy that suggests an employee is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously,” as The Hill reports.

The measure was passed by the state House by a vote of 31-25, and the state Senate approved the bill by a margin of 16-12.

Ducey heralded the development on Friday, declaring, “I am not going to waste public dollars on lessons that imply the superiority of any race and hinder free speech. House Bill 2906 goes a long way towards protecting Arizonans against divisive and regressive lessons. …Here in Arizona, we’re going to continue to be leaders on civics education and teach important lessons about our nation’s history.”

The governor also noted that the bill’s enactment comes swiftly on the heels of House Bill 2898, signed just a week prior, which ensures that students in public schools “cannot be taught that once race, ethnic group, or sex is in any way superior to another, or that anyone should be discriminated against on the basis of these characteristics,” adding that the bill provides for fines of up to $5,000 for institutions that violate its provisions.

U.S. Rep. Debbie Lasko (R-AZ) also praised the outcome, saying on Twitter, “It’s great to see that @dougducey signed legislation into law to stop Critical Race Theory from infiltrating our schools and government entities! CRT advances a distorted version of history to divide our nation and dismantle our institutions. It has no place in Arizona.”

Arizona Republican Congressman Andy Biggs had a similar reaction, taking to social media to call the fact that CRT “is now prohibited across all government levels and public schools in the state of Arizona” something that represents “a HUGE win for all Arizonans,” and he also thanked members of the legislature for addressing the issue.

Republican state Representative Jake Hoffman celebrated the measure as well, saying, “This first in the nation legislation banning critical race theory at all levels of government makes Arizona the national leader in combating this divisive curriculum.” adding:

Arizona stands with Martin Luther King Jr.’s proclamation that people should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

A host of other Republican-led states have recently introduced bills that would, as well-known CRT opponent and investigative journalist Chris Rufo explains, “prohibit public schools and state agencies from promoting race essentialism, collective guilt, and state-sanctioned racism.”

Hopefully, as the dangers of this pernicious form of progressive indoctrination continue to be exposed, even more legislatures will soon follow suit and join Arizona in rejecting it it in all forms.

Way to go Governor. I hope Indiana takes the same action. I agree with Kathy Johnson, and MLK JR. The color of a persons skin, has no bearing.

The only race I think about is how many people I can lead to God before this body dies and my soul goes to Heaven. The elites and stupids gather there money ignoring who gave them that money or who they took it from. Same stupid thinking, different time. Critical Race Theory and any other theory, should be tested and proven before believed. There was slaves in the past. There are slaves today that work in cleaning and maids and such. If the government is going to blame race for any and everything, they need to look in the mirror first. But it’s not about race. Blacks are former President Obama and now Vice President Harris. The real problem are broken families and priorities in black communities. Focus on keeping families together and getting a degree. Stop making education so expensive. Teach the basics, not politics. We get enough of that from tv. Respect, Honor, Selfless Service, Integrity, Personal Courage. These are Army traits and everyone could use these. The Politicians, bureaucrats and elites should be made to listen and learn.
