Many politicians have mouthed boilerplate criticisms of the spread of the radical woke agenda in schools and businesses, but recently Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida took real action against it. DeSantis proposed legislation to ban state funding from schools that teach critical race theory. Constitutional Rights PAC reports:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proposed legislation Wednesday to ban state funding from schools that teach critical race theory and prohibit corporations from including it in employee training programs.
DeSantis announced the Stop WOKE Act at a Wednesday press conference, blasting critical race theory and “wokeness” as “an attempt to delegitimize our history and to delegitimize our institutions.”
Critical race theory, which says U.S. institutions and culture are systemically racist and oppressive to racial minorities, has generated widespread controversy nationwide over its presence in public school curriculum.
Progressive activists and Democratic politicians have insisted the academic framework is not taught in public schools despite substantial evidence to the contrary and say efforts to ban it are attempts to whitewash American history and avoid teaching students about racism.
Action Line: It’s not enough for politicians to go on Fox News and say they oppose the radical woke agenda. They need to actually use their power to do something about it. If you don’t see your state’s leaders stepping up to fight against a philosophy that could tear down America, it’s time to look for a new place to live. Start with my Super States.
