Bill Clinton Falsely Claims Critical Race Theory Not Being Pushed in Schools

Republicans "made Critical Race Theory sound worse than smallpox," says former president.

Former President Bill Clinton once again lied to the American people, claiming Critical Race Theory doesn’t actually exist in schools, but that Republicans use it as a scare tactic to win elections.

Fareed Zakaria, host of CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” asked Clinton on Sunday if Biden could “break the historical pattern” of the “midterms going badly” for Democrats this time around.

“Absolutely. We could hold both these houses, but we have to say the right things,” Clinton said. “And we have to note the Republicans always close well. Why? Because they find some new way to scare the living daylights out of swing voters about something.”

“That’s what they did in 2021 — where they made Critical Race Theory sound worse than smallpox. And it wasn’t being taught in any public schools in America,” Clinton insisted. “But they didn’t care. They just scare people.”

Clinton added, “You still have to get those people. It’s just that there’s so many fewer because as the parties have gone more ideological and clear and somehow psychically intolerant, they pull more and more people toward the extremes. But there’s still some people hanging on there who are really trying to think and trying to understand what’s going on.”

Contrary to Clinton’s baseless remarks, Critical Race Theory being pushed in schools across America is well-documented.

Blue cities in the U.S. have even pledged to make CRT a central focus of school curriculum.

The Biden administration has even earmarked billions of dollars of COVID-19 relief funds for schools that prioritize CRT in their classrooms.

That’s why parents across the country have been speaking out against the racist propaganda at school board meetings, prompting Attorney General Merrick Garland to launch investigations into parents who spoke out against CRT in 2021.
