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

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.”

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
