Gov. DeSantis Says His State Will Not Tolerate “Elite-Driven Phenomenon” CRT

Governor Ron DeSantis introduced legislation on Wednesday in a bid to crack down on the teaching of Critical Race Theory as well as other ‘woke’ ideology in schools and places of employment,

The legislation would ban the teaching of the concept in schools and allow private corporate employees to sue their employers if they are made to undergo critical race theory training.

The Florida governor said that his state would not tolerate the “elite-driven phenomenon” of “cultural Marxism”.

“Nobody wants this crap, OK? 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.

Summit News Reports: As he spoke about the bill, called the Stop Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees Act (Stop W.O.K.E Act), DeSantis noted “We want all our students to understand why was our country founded. What were some of the key ideas that made us different,” adding that core rights “do not come from government.”

The governor continued, “I think what you see now with the rise of this woke ideology is an attempt to really delegitimize our history and delegitimize our institutions.”

“And I view the wokeness as cultural Marxism,” DeSantis added to rapturous applause.

DeSantis emphasised that proponents of CRT “want to tear at the fabric of our society and our culture, really things we’ve taken for granted, like the ability of parents to direct the upbringing of their kids,” displacing it with a “militant form of leftism”.

The legislation will provide parents a private right of action to enforce prohibition of the teaching of CRT and to recover attorney’s fees if they are successful.

Labelling CRT as “state-sanctioned racism,” and “indoctrination,” the governor proclaimed “No taxpayer dollars should be used to teach our kids to hate our country,” adding “We also have a responsibility to ensure that parents have the means to vindicate their rights when it comes to enforcing state standards.”

“How is it not a hostile work environment to be attacking people based on their race or telling them that they’re privileged or part of oppressive systems when all they’re doing is showing up to work and trying to earn a living?” DeSantis asked, adding “We believe that that violates the Florida Civil Rights laws, but to the extent that it doesn’t, we’re going to make sure that the law does include this.”


  1. Just like Trump said, “we will never become communist”. then look what happened. I just have a real bad feeling that Desantis is part a really big trick.

    • Thi g is you are communist but just don’t know it because if the Secrecy the law operates with You don’t own yourself, you don’t own Ypur money or anything you’ve bought it with it. While your governmentt believes in debt budgetary pucy all your money is debt dollars accruing interest being negated by I flatiron but still impiverishibg we the people who live really on hire purchase of incomes.

      • yes, the vaccine program is a population thinning, with Control experiments going on with them. We are lab rats. But they want us dead but will use us to see if they can alter our DNA and make us more docile and obedient.
        It is all right in front of everyone, the evidence. but no one can see it.
        They express their agendas to us thru Hollywood and books. Rent the old movie 1970s “Logan’s Run”. cheap movie, but the format that they are bringing on is an exact match. “Soilent green”

  2. The law and history need to make it clear that it was the imperialism of the English and Spanish and Dutch in particular CROWNS that ran the racist propaganda in order to get their SUBJECTS to COMPLY and obey and follow orders to kill and rob North American Indians Africans Australian aborigines especially the genocided entire Tasmania population, and continental Indians as well as many other non Caucasians in order yo serve as loyal citizens under the rule of Law constructed from the combined efforts of Church and Crown as the culprits. Not the subjects who were hung or shot or tortured and burned, garroted, hung drawn and quartered, boiled or baked, if they disobeyed.
