The Senate voted Monday night to call on the federal government to keep contentious “critical race theory” doctrines out of the national curriculum.
By a vote of 30-28, the Senate supported a notice of motion put forward by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson calling “on the federal government to reject critical race theory from the national curriculum.” …
Speaking at a conservative conference in Texas last week, Republican Senator Ted Cruz blasted critical race theory, saying it “says every white person is a racist.”
“Critical race theory says America’s fundamentally racist and irredeemably racist. Critical race theory seeks to turn us against each other and if someone has a different colour skin, seeks to make us hate that person.”
“And let me tell you right now, critical race theory is bigoted, it is a lie and it is every bit as racist as the Klansmen in white sheets,” Senator Cruz said.
