Republicans in New Hampshire have made a stand against their governor on Tuesday, citing his state budget and its lack of appropriate consideration for “systemic racism” as their reason, according to The Daily Caller. Ironically, their resignations clear the way for more conservative members.
Gov. Chris Sununu (R) lost half the Republicans on his Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion thanks to the budget intentionally limiting conversations about racism being linked to biological unchanging factors.
“We feel obligated to inform you that—contrary to your recent public statements—systemic racism does, in fact, exist here in New Hampshire,” 10 members stated in a resignation letter addressed to Sununu.
The New Hampshire Republican signed into law two contentious bills, House Bills 1 and 2, the second of which prohibited the instruction that one “is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously” attributing that to immutable characteristics — such as race or gender.
“We accepted your appointment to this council out of commitment and love for this state and your stated desire to advance diversity and inclusion,” they wrote.
“Given your willingness to sign this damaging provision and make it law, we are no longer able to serve as your advisors,” the council members said.
The Republicans who felt that the governor wasn’t taking racism in their state seriously enough said that they supported the council’s mission to “combat discrimination and advance diversity and inclusion,” but didn’t feel the governor was following that mantra.
Republicans across the nation have come face to face with the racial injustice teachings of Critical Race Theory which teachers children that they are inherently prejudiced and that white Americans have an obligation to make up for historical injustice.
