ANALYSIS/OPINION: Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida signs the “Stop Woke Act.” This bill prohibits discrimination and it states that ALL history must be taught in schools. Teachers will not be permitted to distort history to serve their ideological goals. Civics, character, merit and mental health will now be taught.
Many leftists try to use the excuse that there are no courses actually named “Critical Race Theory” or “CRT” in our children’s curriculum, and that therefore it is not being taught. That is not the case.
As DeSantis points out, enumerating the principles of CRT and injecting them into our children’s education is not education. That is indoctrination. CRT is not only being taught to our children, but to our adult workforce as well under the guise of “workforce training.”
Big corporations like Apple and Google are teaching people that all Americans are raised to be racist!!
Walt Disney even incorporated a white privileged checklist into their training!! Under this new bill, things of this nature will be a total violation of our civil rights.
So, in contrast to CRT, this bill encourages teachers to inspire their students with stories of overcoming adversity no matter what your race or the color of your skin.
As many of you may know, we at KTJ Nation are huge fans of a man named Tom Woods. Tom is a true Patriot, always fighting for our freedoms and educating people about truths while debating the leftist lunacy. He has now teamed up with Praxis, an alternative to the indoctrination universities that exist currently.
Even before Covid, there were ridiculous events happening on college campuses. We all have heard of them. However, college ridiculousness combined with Covid lunacy has produced some very scary results.
For instance, universities in California are demanding both the initial shots and the booster for all students, and are threatening those who do not comply. Penalties range from having their WiFi shut off to not being able to participate in campus activities, to outright expulsion.
A professor at Loyola Marymount University blamed “white supremacy” (which does not exist) for Will Smith slapping Chris Rock.
Other professors have been saying they hope for the death of Clarence Thomas, one of the best justices in the history of the Supreme Court.
A brief scan of headlines at The College Fix brings up “Case Western Reserve University Offers Paid Social Justice Fellowships,” “Student Newspaper Deletes Article Because It Included Too Many Quotes From White Students,” and “Students, Professors Demand Scholar Be Allowed to Call on ‘White, Male, or Someone Privileged’ Last.”
Not so long ago, things were bad but not quite as bad as they are now. The history department had its propagandists, but it also had genuinely serious scholars.
In this day and age we cannot imagine being inside academia. We’d have to fight every psychotic left-wing obsession in the universe, on top of the sudden and arbitrary restrictions and vaccine requirements.
The universities, which supposedly consist of our best and brightest, are where the most draconian and irrational COVID restrictions were imposed.
And of course they are where the dumbest and most destructive social theories, and theories of law, are to be found.
We always knew if ever these ideas (along with the intolerance of opposing views that we associate with our universities) were to start creeping out of academia and into society, we’d be in trouble.
Unfortunately, it’s looking like that time has come.
We can understand why many parents wouldn’t want to send their children into these nuthouses.
But what else are they supposed to do? Not get the official credential, and have to suffer with an inferior job?
Well, it turns out there is a genuine alternative.
It’s called Praxis. It’s an apprenticeship program whereby a college-age person gets on-the-job experience with a startup company, followed by a guaranteed job offer.
A bunch of young people who listen to the Tom Woods show, have raved about it and done really well. If you’re a parent (or a young person) who would consider a college alternative like this, we recommend watching their presentation and making up your mind.

OPINION: We’re not sure if anyone￼ actually watched the Oscars last night. KTJ Nation certainly did not. Apparently, Hollywood has once again proven how clueless and out of touch they really are. The Oscars have sunk to a new low as well. Alas, it is now OK for someone to commit assault and battery in the middle of a formal awards show with thousands watching. We doubt there were even that many tuned in, as it had the second lowest ratings in history.￼
In true liberal Hollywood fashion, the “hosts” of the show tried to paint Florida as “anti-gay.” They also ineffectively attempted to satirize and marginalize the important legislation about to be signed by the Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis.
The bill prohibits classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity for children in kindergarten through Grade 3. It builds on the Parental Bill of Rights signed into law last year. Needless to say, none of the Hollywood hosts bothered to actually read the bill before making themselves look petty and ignorant.
Governor DeSantis responded today by saying, “If the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein as exemplars and as heroes and as all that, if those are the types of people that are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear that like a badge of honor.”
