Isn’t this interesting?
In a surprising turn of events, it was just discovered that dozens of cultural and educational institutions spent millions of taxpayers dollars that was taken from President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package to fund programs which were calling for social and climate justice.
Basically, millions of taxpayer dollars appear to have been spent by museums and universities to fund climate change, racial injustice and more.
According to Yahoo News, $135 million of the money from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act that was passed by Democrats alone was then given to the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) the NEH then used $87.8 million of that money and spent it on “nearly 300 cultural and educational institutions.”
Here is the kicker, most of that money was then given out as grants which had little to do with helping them recover from the pandemic.
One example is how $499,023 of that money went to the University of Montana so they could “bring awareness to racial justice.”
Another example is how $50,000 went to a nonprofit organization aimed at “reopening programs that teach Indigenous canoe-building and explore pre-colonial sea life.”
There was also $471,905 which went to the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh work on an existing exhibit on Ancient Egypt.
The list goes on and on about how our tax dollars were taken from Biden’s American Rescue Plan and spent on frivolous things that had nothing to do with pandemic recovery.
