Texas is passing what is referred to as the "heartbeat bill", which is a provision for providing a $10,000 bounty to those who file civil lawsuits against anyone involved in the process of potentially receiving, administering or even counseling or providing assistance during the process of an abortion.


So if you provide counseling or assistance to people who seek out abortions, then someone sues you, the state of texas awards them 10,000$? Or am I not reading that right?

Doesn't it basically prohibit teachers from morally condemning the KKK? I haven't seen anything about CRT in any of the texts; CRT fearmongering is just the public justification for further dumbing down and whitewashing education, particularly in history. Make it even more about how star-spangled awesome we are.

Also most people who criticize CRT don't even know what it is. "White Fragility" isn't teaching CRT. It's just some corporate grifter teaching liberal white guilt, which is harmful to everyone it affects.

Iirc it prohibits teachers from "being compelled" to morally condemn the Klan.

I've read and listened to Charles Murray while in my "Sam Harris is so cool and logical" phase. He is trash and is basically responsible for making me full-on despise Harris when he defended Murray in a pussyfooted "just trying to be lulgical!" way.

Idk, based on the text I read from the bills, it sounds like they don't want any acknowledgement of things like the KKK or Jim Crow or the Fugitive Slave Act whatsoever. Just "slavery existed but it were not in line with de founding values. Now all races exists in peace and harmony the end!"

Charles Murray sounds like a 19th century phrenologist. As for Harris, you know you suck when fucking Ezra Klein can rip your "argumentation" to shreds.

So since you're so "objective," do you have proof that any schools in Texas are actually teaching CRT in the first place? Anything lower than a college-level course?

How can you make a course out of Cathode Ray Tubes?
