The state of Florida continues to take the lead against both child sex-grooming and the forced indoctrination of employees to distasteful, leftist views forced upon them by employers.
The state’s legislature has passed what supporters are calling the “Stop WOKE Act,” a bill aimed at limiting compulsory workplace and classroom teaching of critical race theory in the state, CBS News reports. The 24-15 vote on March 10 follows soon after passage of an education bill that has enraged homosexual advocates. Called the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, that measure bars adults in schools from talking with very young children about homosexuality and gender.
The Stop WOKE Act , short for “Stop Wrongs against Our Kids and Employees Act,” now moves to the desk of Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has been a vocal supporter.
“In Florida we are taking a stand against the state-sanctioned racism that is critical race theory,” DeSantis said in favor of the bill in December. “We won’t allow Florida tax dollars to be spent teaching kids to hate our country or to hate each other. … We must protect Florida workers against the hostile work environment that is created when large corporations force their employees to endure CRT-inspired ‘training’ and indoctrination.”
The bill does not mention critical race theory by name, but does specifically target employers who include training on critical race theory or racism, banning any training that tries to teach “an individual’s moral character or status as either privileged or oppressed is necessarily determined by his or her race, color, sex, or national origin.”
The bill also limits how teachers and other educators can teach public school students about race, privilege and the founding of America.
