Thank Heavens we don’t have to, because the short answer is we would be toast. But there are a number of conservative legislatures and Governors who are make a real difference and preserving the America we know and love. And just as importantly, pushing back against leftist insanity.

Tennessee Governor Signs Bill Banning Critical Race Theory In Schools

Tennesee Gov. Bill Lee signed a bill on Tuesday banning educators from teaching critical race theory in state schools.

The bill went through several rounds of amendments before being passed onto the governor but eventually garnered enough support from GOP legislators in both the state House and the state Senate. Lee also expressed his support for the bill which he said highlights “the exceptionalism of our nation” instead of the topics that “inherently divide” it.
