Only WOKE Institutions Will Get Infrastructure Bill Money

Written By BlabberBuzz | Thursday, 11 November 2021 05:15

Democrats introduced their alleged “bipartisan infrastructure” legislation as the tamer of the Biden Administration-backed measures in front of Congress this fall. It also included another culture war win for Leftists.

Under section 60307 of the newly passed deal, American institutions that get funding from the infrastructure legislation are denied the power to support scientific facts about sex.

“No individual in the United States may, on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity that is funded in whole or in part with funds made available to carry out this title,” the infrastructure bill reads.

The use of the word “perceived” automatically punishes businesses for recognizing sex in areas such as sports, where men who claim to identify as female try to play on women’s teams.

Institutions that do not comply with this risk oversight and legal action from the Administration.

As Federalist contributor Rachel Bovard stressed, 13 House Republicans and 18 Senate Republicans upheld the bill when it came across their desks but were deceived in the process. Multiple GOP members claimed they simply wanted money for “roads and bridges,” but they ended up settling on one of the biggest culture war details in the process.

"So to claim that a vote for the infrastructure legislation was merely a vote for ‘roads and bridges,’ devoid of any other major political context, is just willfully ignorant of the obvious and openly stated politics at work. A vote for the infrastructure bill was very clearly a vote for the reconciliation legislation," Bovard wrote.

Republicans who supported the bill predictably defended their vote as one for “roads and bridges,” pointing to the benefits that the bill’s largest provisions — like the $47 billion in climate funding and the $66 billion for the failing Amtrak system, provided without any reform — will ostensibly bring to their districts.

Over at National Review, Philip Klein called the move by these 13 Republicans “political malpractice,” and a “betrayal."

As Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.) told The Hill, “I thought it was good for our district, I thought it was good for our country.” Meanwhile, left-of-center commentator Andrew Sullivan huffed about the “fanatical tribalism” being applied to a bill about infrastructure.

This reconciliation legislation, which has already undergone cuts following massive conflicts between Progressives and holdouts on the Democrat side, seeks to classify radical climate law and other Leftist wish-list items.
