Biden's $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Spent Millions on Social Justice Propaganda for Kids

As is to be expected, Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion stimulus was packed with pork. 

When the bill was being debated last year, the Wall Street Journal published estimates that only $825 billion would be going towards direct COVID-19 relief, the other $1+ trillion was allocated to “expansions of progressive programs, pork, and unrelated policy changes.”



The details of some of that "progressive" pork has been revealed, and just one federal agency has spent eight figures worth of so-called "COVID relief"on indoctrinating children with social justice propaganda. 

According to Fox News
A federal government agency dedicated to supporting libraries and museums across the country spent $15 million in funds from President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package on programs pushing "anti-racist" education and "social activism" for children.

In October, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), announced $15,255,733 in American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act project grants "to institutions across 49 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to support the role of museums and libraries in recovering from the coronavirus pandemic."

A review of the grant recipients shows that many projects that received funding from the relief package included "anti-racist" education and "social activism" for school-aged children, and many others which had virtually little to do with recovery efforts.

To give just a brief overview of the kind of programs that $15+ million funded; the IMLS gave the Rochester Museum and Science Center in New York $49,632 for a field trip for third graders where they'll get to see the "Take It Down!" exhibit, which "tells the story of a community led effort to remove racist artwork from a historic carousel, as a tool for anti-racism education."

Another $43,400 went to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts so they could train their guides to "incorporate greater cultural fluency and responsiveness into their tours using an anti-racist lens," and to introduce new topics for school audiences, including "social-emotional learning, identity, empathy, and social activism."

The Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts got $50,000 so they could offer "equity, diversity, and inclusion-focused STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs for pre-K through 12th-grade students."

The Studio Museum and Harlem got $50,000 to build a 9-foot bronze statue that will somehow "address Black masculinity, stereotypes and shared diasporic experiences." Northwest Mississippi Community College got $33,000 to create a "safe space" for students dealing with pandemic related stress and racial injustice. Meanwhile, the Anchorage Museum got $50,000 to hire a staff member who could collaborate with "communities of color" and "LGBT communities" and a curator to "work with communities" on whatever "climate justice" is. 

And that's not even 2% of it.
