Democrats are terrified about the 2024 election.
One Republican worries them as much as Donald Trump.
And Ron DeSantis hit Democrats with some bad news that terrifies Democrats.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
On Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis introduced the Stop W.O.K.E. Act which is legislation designed to combat Marxist ideologies in schools and places of employment in Florida.
“No taxpayer dollars should be used to teach our kids to hate our country or to hate each other.” DeSantis stated.
“Nobody wants this crap,” DeSantis told the crowd.
“This is an elite-driven phenomenon being driven by bureaucratic elites, elites in universities and elites in corporate America. And they’re trying to shove it down the throats of the American people. You’re not doing that in the state of Florida,” he said.
He explained that the proposed legislation would give “parents a private right of action to be able to enforce the prohibition on CRT and they get to recover attorneys’ fees.”
In addition the proposed legislation would “defund any money for K-12 or higher ed going to CRT consultants.”
It also makes clear that CRT training would be considered an “unlawful employment practice,” making it “clear that corporations and public sector employers violate the Florida Civil Rights Act when they subject their employees to training that espouses race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating including critical race theory.”
The Stop W.O.K.E. Act, according to Breitbart News:
- Gives employees a clearer path to a private cause of action against discrimination in the workplace;
- Improves a private cause of action for parents and students against indoctrinating practices K-20;
- Protects teachers who are trying to do the right thing and pushing back against unlawful mandates from their elected district leadership; and
- Gives the State Board of Education enforcement authority in K-12 settings.
DeSantis pointed out the efficacy of the proposed law: “Here’s the thing: A lot of times, these people will fear lawsuits more than a fine from the state Department of Education because when you do a lawsuit, you get discovery. And you’re subject to that, and when they say they’re not doing CRT and then you have all this information showing that they are doing it, it really is an uncomfortable position for them.”
Democrats are predictably clinging to the notion that Critical Race Theory isn’t taught in school despite all evidence to the contrary.
“Let’s be clear, Gov. DeSantis and his administration know full well that CRT (critical race theory) is not taught in K-12 schools or workplaces,” Sen. Shevrin Jones, D-West Park, said in a statement Wednesday before going on to blame Republicans for completely manufacturing the idea.
If that was true, why are Democrats so bothered when CRT gets banned?
The ideas that Democrats want taught are so bad they can’t even admit to the American public what those ideas are.
It’s of primary importance to make sure that the next generation of Americans aren’t indoctrinated into racist beliefs and that’s just what Ron DeSantis is working to ensure.
