American Rescue Plan Funding Went to ‘Oral Historians’

As inflation hits 8.6%, President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan is leaving many angry over its ridiculous spending choices.

The trillion-dollar COVID-19 relief package went towards very woke and completely unnecessary pandering. “Under/unemployed oral historians” received quite the payday for their research and studies into anti-racism, Indigenous and Latinx histories.

Like quite a few languages, Spanish uses gender-related suffixes in their words, such as Latino and Latina. Apparently, this is too offensive to some liberals, so the term “Latinx” was invented as a gender-neutral option.

Because Americans don’t have bigger things to worry about with hyperinflation, food shortages and widespread unrest, the Biden administration found it fitting to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on woke mumbo-jumbo.

Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan in March 2021, with no Republicans voting for it. The Democratic Party claimed this expensive plan was necessary to help ease the economic burden that has hit the United States. The National Endowment for Humanities supposedly needed $135 million, of which $87.8 million was sent to cultural-related expenses. It was sent to “nearly 300 cultural and educational institutions to help them recover from the economic impact of the pandemic, retain and rehire workers, and reopen sites, facilities, and programs.”

However, a large portion of the money was not spent on anything that had to do with economic recovery for American citizens and businesses.

The $825,000 sent to the Oral History Association was used for a project called “Diversifying Oral History Practice: A Fellowship Program for Under/Unemployed Oral Historians.” To make things even more interesting, this grant project gives eleven year-long fellowships of $60,000 each for oral historians “from communities which have been historically marginalized in the field,” such as “Indigenous peoples, people of color, people with disabilities, and working-class people.”

One of the grants went to a woman who wants to protect “Mother Earth.” Another grant user is working on something about Latinx and the stereotyping of minority women.

The Oral History Association was just one of the dozens of cultural institutions that sucked millions from the relief package that Democrats deceivingly said was for the American people’s well-being in terms of economic relief.

Taxpayers, isn’t it so comforting to know that millions of your hard-earned dollars are going to such inclusive and culturally appropriate things as this? All while you try and make ends meet.
