“Woke” radicals have taken over education.
Millions of parents were asleep at the wheel as it happened.
But Ron DeSantis has a plan to stop the awful thing happening to kids around the country.
One of Donald Trump’s most important acts as President was when he shone a light on the neo-Marxist idea of Critical Race Theory.
Trump learned about CRT while watching a Fox News segment with conservative journalist and activist Christopher Rufo.
Rufo has been one of the leaders in exposing CRT and similar fringe ideas that have quietly seeped into the mainstream.
One of the consequences of Rufo’s work is that politicians and even everyday parents are alert to what is now happening in K-12 education and other institutions across the country.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has arguably been the most forceful politician in fighting wokeness, and now DeSantis is putting forth the Stop WOKE (Wrongs against Our Kids and Employees) Act.
The Stop WOKE bill would defund CRT consultants in public education, and prohibit school employees from being forced to attend “woke” training seminars.
“Just to understand, when you hear equity used, that is just an ability for people to smuggle in their ideology because we don’t need to have these terms. We have a society based on equality, where you’re treated equally. Regardless of your upbringing, regardless of your race, you have the same rights and privileges as anybody else. Equity is used to put the thumb on the scale in favor of their ideology.”
DeSantis is entirely correct.
Diversity, inclusivity, and equity – also known as the DIE religion – are buzzwords that are code for a leftist agenda.
It’s not a coincidence that DIE proponents are invariably avowed communists, socialists, Democratic socialists, Marxists, or fellow travelers of some sort.
“Our legislation will defund any money for K-12 going to CRT consultants . . . No taxpayer dollars should be used to teach our kids to hate our country or hate each other . . . We’re also not going to allow the staff or employees or teachers in our education system to be subjected to that type of training where they’re forced to sit there and listen . . . This is wrong when it’s done to our kids, but it’s also wrong to force employees to have to go through that.”
People have long understood that universities lean Left.
Many didn’t realize just how far Left they leaned until a rash of conservative speakers were harassed, assaulted, or de-platformed altogether on college campuses a few years ago.
Now Americans are realizing that radicalism has filtered down to K-12 education, and it’s been happening for a long time.
