Arizona teachers fined $5,000 for getting controversial

 

The state of Arizona is famous for the zany antics of its Republican politicians. I call your attention to the ongoing audit of the 2020 election, an effort initiated to please the disgraced ex-president, Donald Trump, with the majority of the GOP minions joining the bandwagon. The leading idiot is Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader, and general rabble-rouser for the insane idea that Trump won the 2020 election. 

But that's only background to lead into the latest lunacy by an Arizona legislator, a part of the GOP, of course. It seems that Republican Rep. Michelle Udahl has introduced legislation that could fine teachers $5,000 if they bring up a "controversial" subject in the classroom. But that's not all, this also applies to anyone aiding a person doing the same. Here's George Orwell's take...
"In writing 1984, Orwell's main goal was to warn of the serious danger totalitarianism poses to society. He goes to great lengths to demonstrate the terrifying degree of power and control a totalitarian regime can acquire and maintain."

 Moron Michelle Udahl says her bill is only designed to ensure accuracy of teaching. Elvia Diaz, columnist for USA Today adamantly says "It is not." As far as I'm concerned it stinks of Charles Koch in his drive to make everything conservative and this is his way to warp the minds of children while their young minds are the most pliable. Koch and his gang of radical rights are afraid of a concept called Critical Race Theory (CRT).


This is the definition of CRT according to Britannica...

"Critical race theory (CRT), intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color."

Since it has become clear that Republicans are racists, particularly in their recent statewide moves to limit the ability of people of color to vote, legislation like that of Udahl is probably only the first of many to come, just like the voter suppression movement. Just keep in mind...if you take Koch out of the action, you will have removed the leader.
