Waltz Presses Sec. Austin on West Point Critical Race Theory Teachings

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Michael Waltz (R-FL) questioned U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on U.S. military academies teaching dangerous Critical Race Theory (CRT).

Sec. Austin, during an earlier line of questioning, stated that CRT is not being taught in the U.S. military.

Rep. Waltz then cited the letter he received from the West Point Superintendent, “With regards to Critical Race Theory, there is one course that has this theory as part of the syllabus, there are two lessons on Critical Race Theory, there is a book on Critical Race Theory entitled ‘Critical Race Theory: An Introduction.’”

“Another thing that was raised to me was a seminar that over a hundred cadets attended titled ‘Understanding Whiteness and White Rage’ taught by a woman who described the Republican Party and Republican Party platform a platform of white supremacy,” said Rep. Waltz.
