Missouri Attorney General Joins 20 State Coalition Urging Department of Education to Reject “Critical Race Theory” in Nation’s School Curriculum

May 20, 2021, 09:49 AM by AG Schmitt

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt joined a 20 state letter, led by Indiana, urging the Biden administration to reconsider educational proposals aimed at imposing the teaching of critical race theory (CRT), the 1619 Project, and other similar curriculum into America’s classrooms – a goal that could be accomplished through a proposed new rule by the U.S. Department of Education establishing priorities for grants in American History and Civics Education programs.

Missouri also filed its own, separate comment letter on the same issue, which can be found here: https://ago.mo.gov/docs/default-source/press-releases/2021-05-19—doe-comment-letter.pdf?sfvrsn=629d3919_2

“American history, civics, and historical literacy are a crucial facet of education in schools across the state and country. Reframing that history through the flawed and harmful lens of critical race theory and the 1619 Project would be a disservice to Missouri students,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “Under these proposed new priorities from the U.S. Department of Education, the federal government would decide how American history and civics are taught, injecting critical race theory in the curriculum to the detriment of thousands of students and teachers. Civics education is not about erasing our past, but instead informing our future. The Biden Administration should reject the imposition of critical race theory on the curriculum taught in Missouri and America’s schools.”

The United States Department of Education issued two proposed priorities for the American History and Civics Education programs on April 19, 2021. The first priority proposed by the Department of Education is for “projects that incorporate racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse perspectives into teaching and learning” and the second is for projects that promote “information literacy.”

The multistate letter begins, “Though the Department does not overtly refer to CRT in its priorities, it is prioritizing teaching this highly controversial ideology through the vehicle of this grant program. This is hardly what Congress intended when it authorized this program. CRT focuses how our current government mechanisms are irretrievably flawed. Its theorists posit that our Nation’s values, ideals, foundations and institutions – the things Congress intended to promote – instead produce ‘inequity’ demanding actions to modify this result. This appears to be a view shared by Professor Ibram X. Kendi and advanced through the 1619 Project. It is fair to assume this view would be advanced by a curriculum built from its project.”

Both letters take issue with the proposed priorities use of teachings of “antiracist” professor Ibram X. Kendi. The Missouri letter states, “It is not plausible to characterize Professor Kendi’s teachings—which attack the very foundations of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights—as ‘educating students about the history and principles of the Constitution of the United States, including the Bill of Rights,’ or improving ‘the quality of the teaching of American history, civics, and government in elementary schools and secondary schools, including the teaching of traditional American history.’”

Both letters, sent to U.S. Department of Education Secretary Cardona, argue that the proposed priorities don’t comport with the standards created by Congress in passing the Every Student Succeeds Act, which aim to “improve the quality of instruction in American history and civics by educating students and teachers in ‘traditional American history’ and the principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.” The letters argue that the proposed priorities would do the opposite of what Congress ascribed in the ESSA, and would actually hurt students and teachers.

The multistate letter states, “Issues of race and discrimination are complex, but instead of teaching American history and civics, as plainly spelled out in the statute, the proposed priorities would dilute the quality of American history and civics education in America in favor of a hyper-racialized and ahistorical doctrine. They are not focused on promoting truth or a holistic understanding of American history and the ideals that the Founders used to establish our country as required by statute, but instead are being used to promote revisionist American history and principles that lead to more discrimination, not less.”

In the Missouri letter, the Attorney General’s Office states, “The proposed priorities under consideration by the U.S. Department of Education will unlawfully and unconstitutionally fund initiatives that promote racial discrimination, instead of providing civics lessons that enable students of all races and backgrounds to effectively participate in their government as part of the Constitution’s ‘We the People.’”  It notes that federal law “reflects Congress’s insight that the United States of America is unique, as the first nation in history to be founded on ideals of liberty and equality under law.”  And it points out that “America’s history reflects a progression in which her founding ideals ultimately triumph over any weaknesses and failures of her people.”

In addition to Missouri, attorneys general from Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia also joined the Indiana letter.

Senator Hawley, Colleagues Introduce Resolution Supporting Israel

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) joined Senator Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and 18 other Republican colleagues in announcing a resolution condemning the attacks against Israel by Hamas, an Iranian-backed and funded terrorist organization, and reaffirming the United States’ unwavering commitment to our ally Israel and its right to take whatever means are necessary to stop the murder of its citizens and foreign nationals residing in Israel.

Senator Josh Hawley said, “Israel has every right to defend itself, and the United States must do everything it can to ensure Israel has what it needs to do so. I stand with Israel, and that is why I am proud to join this resolution.”

In addition to Senators Hawley and Scott, the legislation is cosponsored by  Senators John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), John Boozman (R-Ark.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), John Kennedy (R-La.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) and Todd Young (R-Ind.).

David Limbaugh and Peter Kinder to headline for the tribute to Rush Limbaugh at State Lincoln Days

This year Missouri and our country lost a warrior for Conservatism, Rush Limbaugh. We are honored to be joined by his brother David Limbaugh and childhood friend Peter Kinder to have a tribute to Rush Friday night at State Lincoln Days.

“As few others do, Rush lived life his way, and the world is immensely better because of his contributions. He was the tip of the spear from day one and took tidal waves of abuse from hateful leftists who devoted their lives to destroying him — and they failed. Rush was responsible not for the development of modern conservatism but for its explosion into the mainstream of American life. He paved the path for so many other great conservatives. The nation — and all of us — owe him deeply for this. He single-handedly resurrected AM talk radio.” –David Limbaugh

Missouri GOP Thanks Senator Roy Blunt for his Service


  JEFFERSON CITY— Today Senator Roy Blunt announced he will not seek reelection to the United States Senate in 2022. The Missouri Republican Party is grateful for everything Senator Blunt has done for Missouri and The United States. 

Senator Blunt began his service to Missouri as the Greene County Clerk. This position would lead him to become Missouri’s Secretary State—the first Republican to hold that office in 50 years. After his post as the Secretary of State, Roy Blunt was elected to Congress in Missouri’s 7th District. After serving in leadership in the House of Representatives, Blunt successfully ran for US Senate in 2010 and was re-elected in 2016. 

Senator Blunt has always been a supporter of the Missouri Republican Party and a fighter for Missouri. We wish Senator Blunt and his family the best as they move into the next chapter of their life. 


STATEMENT FROM CHAIRMAN NICK MYERS:

“Throughout his years of service to Missourians, Senator Blunt always made Missouri his number one priority. His impact on Missouri and has always done his duty. I look forward to Missouri continuing to benefit from his presence in the US Senate over the next two years.”

Nick Myers Elected as new MO GOP Chair

On January 30th the Missouri Republican State Committee met to hold an election to elect the Missouri Republican Party’s Chair and officers.

The Committee unanimously elected Joplin area CPA Nick Myers as Chairman of the state GOP. Nick, a long-time grassroots Republican activist and Newton County GOP chairman, has served on the Missouri Republican State Committee since 2008. He will serve a 2-year term as Chairman, leading the party through the 2022 elections.

“It is an honor to be elected by the members of the Republican State Committee to lead the Missouri Republican Party,” said Myers. “As recent elections have demonstrated, Missouri is a deeply conservative state. I look forward to working with Governor Parson, our statewide officials, our US senators & Congress members, and our majorities in the State House and Senate to protect and secure our God given rights. To that end the committee and I will be unified in our efforts to elect a State Auditor and win another six year term for our US Senator.”

Since 1983, Myers is the president of Nick Myers CPA PC with offices in Joplin, Anderson and Webb City in Southwest Missouri. He previously served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Redings Mill Fire Protection District, President and Chairman of the Board of the 8,000+ member Missouri Society of CPAs, member of the  American Institute of CPAs Governing Council,  and as an officer of the 2011 Missouri House Apportionment Commission and 2012 Senate Apportionment Commission.

“Nick Myers is a respected Republican leader who has dedicated himself to building our party locally and statewide,” said Governor Parson. “I look forward to working with Nick to grow the Republican Party, win elections, and govern conservatively.”

The State Committee also elected Leann Green of Licking as Vice Chair and reelected Derrick Good of Cedar Hill as Secretary and Pat Thomas of Jefferson City as Treasurer. Each election was uncontested and unanimous.

St. Louis County Republicans Voice Their Support of The Trump Administration’s Pursuit of Election Truth

At their regularly scheduled monthly meeting last night, members of the St. Louis County Republican Central Committee voted unanimously to support President Trump’s attempt to investigate voting irregularities. This included the United States Justice Department and our local officials.

See their resolution below:

Free and fair elections are the bedrock of America’s unprecedented multi-century tradition of the peaceful transition of power. The U.S. Constitution leaves it to the states to develop procedures and safeguards to guarantee that all legally eligible voters can cast their ballots securely and confidently in their elections. When there appears to be evidence that states have failed to uniformly implement these safeguards, it is the right of any candidate in to seek access to the ballots and conduct a review of the vote. However, the U.S. Department of Justice has the ultimate authority to protect the integrity of federal elections.

We, the committee men and women of the St. Louis County Republican Central Committee, believe election fraud on any scale is unacceptable. With reports of potential significant fraud from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin we are extremely concerned not only about the outcome of this election, but also about the American public’s trust of our entire election process going forward.

Problems with the voter signatures, postal marks on mailed in ballots and the extensions granted for such ballots to arrive, as well as the inability of poll watchers to continuously monitor vote counts are all election issues which require investigation and resolution. These investigations and challenges must be concluded prior to the final outcome of this election’s certification in order to secure the public trust in our federal elections.

Therefore the St. Louis County Republican Central Committee resolves to:

  • Support the use of Federal prosecutors authorized to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of the elections nationwide.
  • Support our state Attorney General’s participation in the amicus brief, filed along with nine other states attorney generals in the U.S. Supreme Court, challenging Pennsylvania’s decision to count mail-in ballots which arrived through Friday November 6,2020.
  • Work with the Missouri legislature to review and address any weaknesses in our own state election policies and procedures that might contribute to such public distrust in the future, and develop solutions that will ensure the public’s confidence in the safety and accuracy of our election process.

The St. Louis County Republican Central Committee is made up of Republican Committeemen and Committeewomen elected to the various Townships in St. Louis County. For more information see their website: redstatestl.org.
