Florida school board member boasts 'woke' teachers are 'working from the inside'
Cortney O'Brien, Fox News

A Sarasota schools board member revealed at a recent talk that "woke" teachers are "working from the inside."

"I just wanted to give a little reassurance that here in the state of Florida, there are school board members that are woke," school board vice chair Tom Edwards said, in a video originally shared by Florida GOP vice chairman Christian Ziegler and posted on LibsofTikTok. "We are here! And and we are working… We have your backs. You need to know, we have your backs."

"And we're working in the best strategic spot because we’re on the inside," he added. "We're working from the inside."

Edwards said it was a "long, slow process" but he's "built trust" in the schools.

"And I'm not the only one in the state of Florida," he continued. "And I need to tell you, so that you feel a little better. There are coalitions forming to protect you."

I guess this a$$clown Tom Edwards didn't know there was a camera running?

In any case, we will soon see if this is another case of hubris preceding nemesis.

Woke teachers “working from the inside” to corrupt and destroy the children.

And bragging about it.

Those people are sick and disgusting and ought to be serving time.

Simple solution to this. Abolish the Federal Dept of Education. Cut all federal funding of education, including school lunches and every program from every agency that sends money to schools. Then at the state and local level send education dollars to parents of school age children without any strings. Get government out of the education business. In the interim, homeschool your children. It’s a decision that I never regret. My adult children are surrounded by great friends. They are conservatives. They are successful. Most importantly, they are true believers in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

He’s working to “protect” them so that they can attack others for their beliefs and words.

It doesn’t even have to be done at the Federal level. States can operate without Federal money and entanglements if they choose to do so.

“Simple solution to this. Abolish the Federal Dept of Education.”

If your simple solution involves abolishing a department of the federal government, then it’s probably not so simple. Has any federal department ever been abolished in the whole history of country?

I still don’t want my tax dollars going to the Federal Dept of Education. I want every single employee there to be unemployed and in misery. They are the eff’n enemy and need to be treated as such.

Yes, the implementation may be politically difficult, but no more physically difficult than passing over a trillion dollars in spending that don’t have in the past couple of weeks. We need to put on our big boy pants and fight.

Creating future foot soldiers to usher in their communist utopia. That utopia isn’t looking very good at the moment but as Stalin said “You have to crack a few eggs in order to make an omelet”

Talk about misleading titles. She hardly boasted, but rather exposed that fact.

“Florida school board member boasts ‘woke’ teachers are ‘working from the inside’”

And why shouldn’t they as this is what their perverted union is telling them:
Fox News
“AFT union promotes method for teachers to help kids change their pronouns without parents knowing”
