FL bill bans critical race theory in schools, businesses to end ‘discomfort’, ‘psychological stress’



School desk

Florida has introduced a new bill to combat the woke culture of teaching “critical race theory” or CRT. The bill aims to avoid making people “discomfort” when being taught CRT by banning it from public schools and private businesses.

On January 18, it passed the state Senate Committee on Education with six ‘yeas’ and three ‘nays.’ It now moves to debate among state senators. The bill states individuals shouldn’t be made to “feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race, color sex, or national origin.”

Additionally, the bill states educators and businesses cannot teach that “one race, religion, ethnicity, or sex is inherently superior to another race, religion, ethnicity or sex; an individual, by virtue, the individual’s race, religion, ethnicity, or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive whether consciously or unconsciously.”

In June of 2021, Florida’s state Board of education banned CRT from public school classrooms for the purpose of guarding children against lessons that could “distort historical events.” Governor Ron DeSantis supported the measure in front of state senators in Wildwood, Florida in December of 2021, saying:

“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.”

Naturally in politics, there are plenty of those who are against the idea. “Students deserve the best education we can provide, and that means giving them a true picture of their world and our shared history as Americans. Hiding facts doesn’t change them” said Florida Education Association (FEA) President Andrew Spar in a statement to ABC News. “Give kids the whole truth and equip them to make up their own minds and think for themselves.”

BREAKING: House fails to pass stopgap funding bill to avoid government shutdown

The House of Representatives failed to pass a continuing resolution negotiated between conservative and moderate House Republicans in an effort to avoid a government shutdown.

The Spending Reduction and Border Security Act was introduced by Republican Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida on Sept. 18, following negotiations between the conservative House Freedom Caucus and centrist Main Street Caucus, as a compromise between divided factions of the House Republican Conference to achieve unanimity while avoiding a government shutdown. The bill failed the House by a vote of 198 yeas to 232 nays, with all Democrats voting against the bill.

The bill would fund the government until Oct. 31 and cut public spending by 8.1285%, according to the bill’s text. This would yield $1.59 trillion for one month until the House and Senate pass 12 appropriations bills to provide permanent funding for the 2024 fiscal year.

The Biden administration issued a statement on Friday staunchly opposing the bill, claiming that its cuts to public spending were too severe. It indicated that President Joe Biden will veto the bill if it is presented to him, which means it is unlikely to be passed by the Democratic-led Senate, either.

The Senate has been working on its own bipartisan continuing resolution to fund the government, which includes funding for Ukraine. House Republicans have criticized the bill, with Donalds saying that it is “dead on arrival” in the House.
