Rep. Burgess Owens on Tuesday introduced a bill that would ban the federal government from funding diversity training that divides employees based on their race.

Owens’ Say No To Indoctrination Act comes in response to the spread of the controversial Critical Race Theory doctrine in schools, governments and corporations nationwide.

“From the Tulsa Race Massacre to Jim Crow and Juneteenth, young Americans deserve to know about every significant event in our country’s history,” the Utah Republican said of his legislation.

“Critical Race Theory, however, teaches students that America is irredeemably racist and that intrinsic characteristics such as race, color and national origin define you. As we strive to combat the injustice, I am proud to present the act of non-indoctrination to keep taxpayer dollars from funding discriminatory practices and divisive worldviews.”

Owens’ bill was the first reported by the Daily Caller.

In June, President Biden signed an executive order requiring training on race and diversity at the federal government level, which Republicans say is divisive and only inflames racial tensions.

Last summer, government workers in Seattle were segregated based on race during diversity training, and white employees were given instructions on how to “undo” their “whiteness.”

Former President Trump issued an executive order during his presidency aimed at curbing the spread of the divisive formation, but that order was overruled by President Biden.

“This poisonous left-wing doctrine is blatant racism, plain and simple, and it has no place in our schools, no place in our military, and no place in our country,” Trump said. noted during a speech in Arizona this weekend.
