“On The Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
These are hard times for young people, especially if they’re trying to raise children.
Homicides are surging. Prices are rising. And every elitist in the media, Hollywood, academia, all the way down to their local school board wants to tell them how to raise their children: vaccinated, angry at America, guilty over their skin color, and afraid of everything.

At least American parents have one friend: Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida. What he just did will have parents cheering… and entitled liberals’ heads bursting into flames.
He introduced a new bill to stop schools and workplaces from forcing racially charged socialism on kids and employees.
The Stop Wrongs Against Our Kids and Employees (Stop WOKE) Act would put parents and middle-class workers back in the driver’s seat—and put left-wing radicals out of a job.
The Stop WOKE Act bans teachers from indoctrinating the state’s kids into racially divisive ideologies like critical race theory (CRT), which is implemented through textbooks like the “1619 Project.”
“In Florida we are taking a stand against the state-sanctioned racism that is critical race theory,” said Gov. DeSantis. “We won’t allow Florida tax dollars to be spent teaching kids to hate our country or to hate each other.”
Wokeness is nothing but “an attempt to delegitimize our history and to delegitimize our institutions,” Gov. DeSantis said. “I view the wokeness as a form of cultural Marxism.”
The Stop WOKE Act would prevent schools and universities from hiring the thought police known as “diversity officers” to force students to use someone’s preferred pronouns.
The act—whose name is a supreme act of trolling—also says that if any private employer holds trainings promoting CRT concepts like toxic whiteness, it will constitute a “hostile work environment.”
“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?” the governor asked.
And the Stop WOKE Act wouldn’t just lay down the law; it gives parents and workers the right to use it to protect themselves. If a workplace starts teaching CRT then parents, students, and workers can sue and collect damages… and huge legal fees.
If the Florida legislature passes the bill, it would be the biggest setback the CRT agenda has had since it became the hot radical cause after last year’s BLM riots.
Critical race theory teaches that America is “systemically racist” and always has been. Its laws oppress minorities—Blacks, women, Hispanics, gays, and anybody else whose vote the Democrats are trying to scrounge up. CRT teaches that any problem they have isn’t their fault; it’s because the system is biased against them.
CRT also teaches that all Americans can be divided (as part of the Democrats’ favorite pastime) into two groups: the oppressed and their oppressors. All white people (especially straight, white, Christian males) are oppressors and always will be.
The only way to change it is to make America a socialist nation. All CRT would really do is give power to rich, white liberals pretending to look out for minorities… and DeSantis isn’t having it get kids expelled or people fired anymore.

Gov. DeSantis said the government has a duty “to protect people and protect our kids from some very pernicious ideologies that are trying to be forced upon them all across the country.”
“They 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,” he said. “No taxpayer dollars should be used to teach our kids to hate our country or to hate each other.”
Democratic state Sen. Shevrin Jones said the whole topic of CRT is “a non-issue,” because DeSantis and Republicans “know full well that CRT is not taught in K-12 schools or workplaces.” For once, a Democrat almost told the truth: Critical race theory isn’t’ taught in Florida’s schools, because Gov. DeSantis banned it.
His Department of Education told schools to get that liberal, anti-American poison out of Florida’s classrooms… but if he loses reelection in 2022, the next governor could change that. The Stop WOKE act would make the ban on CRT official Sunshine State law.
And it would stop huge corporations like Bank of America from telling its employees to adopt CRT—and teach it at home, because toddlers “develop racial biases by ages 3-5.”
“There is a new group of people emerging and asserting the authority of the American people: these are American parents,” said Chris Rufo, a Manhattan Institute scholar who has exposed the ugly, racist teachings of CRT. In the last year public school administrators “have accelerated Critical Race Theory in K-12 public schools, and they have done something that no government should do: step between parent and child.”

DeSantis—who is a frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination—is putting parents, workers, and common sense back in charge in Florida.
Thank you, Governor.
Right now, America needs 49 more of you.
