It’s been well known for a while that Chip and Johana gains follow a strong set of Christian beliefs, although their latest move shows that conservative causes are also close to their heart.
According to reports, Chip and Jo just made a contribution to Chip’s sister Shannon Braun who is running for school board in Texas and is staunchly against critical race theory.
This is a move that’ll definitely get under the left’s skin.
Check it out:
Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV “Fixer Upper” fame donated $1,000 on Wednesday to Shannon Braun’s campaign for the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District (GCISD) School Board — a candidate who is against critical race theory, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Critical race theory is the notion that traditional liberal approaches to dealing with racial inequalities need to be reconsidered because laws favor white supremacy.
Braun, who is Chip Gaines’s sister, is running in the June 5 runoff election against incumbent trustee Mindy McClure.
On her platform, which focuses on giving “our kids the education they deserve,” Braun is a proponent of fighting critical race theory, which she called “the single most divisive threat” in education.
“I will vote down anything and everything that further promotes critical race theory in our school district and actively work to remove all critical race theory,” Braun says in a video posted on her campaign Facebook page.
Oddly, the district she is running for is not teaching critical race theory and does not have an interest in doing so.
The GCISD released a statement clarifying the confusion: “The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, or TEKS, are state standards for what students should know and be able to do in each grade level.”
Good for Chip and Jo, as well as his sister!
She’s doing a great thing in leading the way against critical race theory.
This is only something that’ll divide this even further.
