Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) have introduced the Combating Racist Training in the Military Act (S. 968/ H.R. 3134). This bill would prohibit the Armed Forces and their service academies from promoting critical race theory.
Of all the institutions the Left has used to impose this radical ideology on individuals, the ramifications of it taking hold among members of the military could be life and death. Teaching service members that they are inherently superior or inferior to those that they serve alongside will demoralize and divide units, undermine cohesion, and make them less effective in combat. In addition to weakening national security, this puts individual soldiers at greater risk on the battlefield.
The military should be above politics.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is a yearly must-pass authorization bill. It authorizes all the military’s activities. Senators should support adding the Combating Racist Training in the Military Act (S. 968/ H.R. 3134) as an amendment to the NDAA.
The Senate continues the markup of the NDAA. A “markup” is where a committee debates, offers amendments, and ultimately holds a vote to move a bill out of committee and to the full chamber floor. The House will markup its version of the NDAA in September. After that, the two chambers will conference, and negotiators will negotiate the differences between the two bills.
