Attorney General Austin Knudsen once again demonstrated why he is so highly admired by his constituents, having won the heart of Montanans by having the tenacity of a lightning bolt while exemplifying what it means to be a ‘gentleman and a scholar.’
In this case, he did it again by offering a personal touch and small act of kindness and reflection after he was contacted by a concerned citizen concerning the dangers of Critical Race Theology and the way it is creeping into our schools and governing bodies.
“Committing racial discrimination in the name of ending racial discrimination is both illogical and illegal. Montana law does not tolerate schools, other government entities, or employers implementing CRT and antiracist programming in a way that treats individuals differently on the basis of race or that creates a racially hostile environment.”
This story of backbone and defense of what’s right is uncommon for a politician, leading a Montana resident, Rebecca Ondov, to send Knudsen a note thanking him for his strong stance on CRT and then getting a response in return, writing:
“Wow! I was shocked to get this personal note from the Montana Attorney General. I wrote him a personal note about CRT. His response made me question if these folks, who are fighting against the evil, feel like they are all alone.”
Below is Knudsen’s response.
As Montanans, we are overwhelmingly proud of our Attorney General, who fights for us and with us.
