There is one good reason why so many Americans are fleeing blue states to relocate to Florida. The governor, Ron DeSantis. The Republican leader has not only talked the conservative talk. He’s made good on many promises, actually leading like a conservative. He’s helped flip Florida, making it a solidly red state. And recently, he signed a bill banning woke content from Florida schools.
Right on cue, Democrats sued. A judge ruled that the ban cannot be applied to Florida colleges and universities. But the governor appealed, taking the matter to federal court. Now, a federal judge ruled on the matter. And the radical left is having a bad day.
From The Post Millennial:
A federal court has ruled in favor of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, stating that his “Stop WOKE Act,” piece of legislation that outlaws the promotion of critical race theory and other “woke” ideologies on the state’s college campuses is not unconstitutional.
A federal judge struck down an injunction against Florida’s “Stop WOKE Act.” This bill, signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis, prohibits critical race theory from being taught in public schools and colleges.
Democrats sued, claiming the bill was unconstitutional. And a lower court blocked the portion of the bill that affected college campuses. But the federal court found no violation of law, lifting the injunction.
The bill took aim at content that is typically considered “woke” or supporting far-left political claims. Democrats tried to make the case that it violated the First Amendment, among other claims. But the bill only prohibits false information from being taught in schools. Since most CRT is based on historically inaccurate views of our country’s heritage, it cannot be taught in schools.
The bill also prohibits clearly partisan political ideas from coloring school curricula. Democrats might scoff at that, but schools have never been allowed to push politics onto students. Only in recent years has the radical left become militant in its attempts at brainwashing children into becoming America-hating leftists.
This court ruling is a major victory for patriots. And it should inspire more states to pass similar bills. Conservative states need to take a stand against bad curriculum that exists only to poison students’ minds against their own country. If more states follow DeSantis’s lead, the woke agenda in our schools will shrivel and die.
- A federal court ruled in favor of Gov. DeSantis’s “anti-woke” bill.
- The bill bans CRT and other woke, political ideas from being taught in schools.
- The judge overruled an injunction blocking the bill from affecting colleges.
