'Where woke goes to die' is more than a slogan in Ron DeSantis's state of Florida.
Need some good news?
Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida, has a way of always delivering good news.
On the culture wars front, he's gotten the steamroller out, flattening wokester investing in public pensions on what's known as the ESG model.
According to the Daily Wire: (Daily Wire excerpt in Post #1)
The good news doesn't stop there, though.
In a move that brought unusually loud screams from the left, DeSantis junked another problem besetting Florida and the rest of the country -- woke indoctrinating education. (Woke indoctrination excerpt in post #1)

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis approved measures on Tuesday to prevent the Florida Retirement System Pension Plan from investing in accordance with the environmental, social, and corporate governance movement, also known as ESG.
According to DeSantis’ office, the approval of the resolution will ensure that public fiduciaries “invest state funds in a manner that prioritizes the highest return on investment for Florida’s taxpayers and retirees without considering the ideological agenda” of the ESG movement. Critics say the philosophy confuses profit maximization with political and social agendas such as reducing carbon emissions or promoting purported racial equity.
“Corporations across America continue to inject an ideological agenda through our economy rather than through the ballot box,” DeSantis said in a press release. “Today’s actions reinforce that ESG considerations will not be tolerated here in Florida, and I look forward to extending these protections during this legislative session.”
Woke indoctrination excerpt:
While Florida has prided itself on leading the culture war for conservatism, a new educational policy may rock the boat for Florida Democrats. Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) along with Florida Republicans have officially erased AP African American Studies from state curriculum, causing backlash from progressives.
Governor DeSantis has made educational reforms a defining role in his first term as governor, and he does not seem to be holding back on this any time soon.
The governor's Spokesman Bryan Griffin issued a statement concerning why they have taken this action, "The Florida Department of Education has rejected the College Board’s AP African American Studies course because it lacks educational value and historical accuracy. As submitted, the course is a vehicle for a political agenda and leaves large, ambiguous gaps that can be filled with additional ideological material, which we will not allow. As Governor DeSantis has stated, our classrooms will be a place for education, not indoctrination."
DeSantis seems to be taking no prisoners!
“DeSantis seems to be taking no prisoners!”
The rest of the GOP could take a lesson from him.
ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is increasing inflation just like they crazies want it
With normalcy bias causing average citizens to fail to detect this nihilistic, self-destructive bent on the part of fake do-gooders.
Viva la Desantis!
desantis for president 2028...
florida first!... 😎
It's a lost cause in many of the blue states. But you can fight the woke crap in some purple states like North Carolina. Tread carefully on the abortion issue. That one is a loser.
Great first steps.
Now, make it a fire-able offense to teach CRT or any of it’s rotting sh*t. We don’t teach children to hate people based on race in Florida - or to hate the country they live in.
Good for DeSantis.
