State legislators vote to abolish left-wing "diversity, equity, and inclusion" programming in all public universities.
Christopher, l saw some of your posts and videos a few years ago and was impressed. After seeing your recent work I have become a subscriber to your substack. Your fair minded, rational and reasonable ideas place you at the forefront of individuals who are really effective at debunking and dismantling the Woke lunacy that has so much of America in its grip. Let's hope that the WokeNuts can be ousted from the institutions they are infesting and destroying.
Love the phrase “conservative counter-revolution in higher education.” I wonder, however, whether the universities will replace any educators with those not steeped in the DEI culture, and if so, where they’ll find politically center/right professors.
The most concise summary of your work that I have seen - your brief statement seems to include everything you have done to-date. It is a great help to be reminded of the whole and its parts in a few words.
Thank you, Chris! Ive often thought that Trump was, and maybe still is, the perfect storm -- the antithesis to the woke Marxian slow-burn acid rain. I heard you and JP talk about how infantile the woke movement is an it confirmed my sense of stupid , and why an eleven year old schoolyard bully works, to some degree. But you work is 100% pure gold and mature beyond your years. I’m somewhere in between, a dusty carpenter raised in Massachusetts who now lives in the soon to be county of Tennessee! You’ve inspired me to speak up and get back to creating my channel.
Again, thank you!
Thx for your work to expose and push back against the trenchant dogma sweeping education. It is my experience that the equity-based DEI bureaucracy in higher Ed and k-12 functions as an end-around to the equality of civil rights legislation. An antiracist affirmative action. Removing them allows universities to hire faculty and staff who best construct knowledge rather than become epistemically bound by orthodox ideology. Yet how to best ensure viewpoint diversity going forward in FL and TX (ie. increase center and conservative thought)? Took 50-60yrs for liberal thought to give way to progressive dogma. I’m finishing my PhD in 1-2yrs in a humanities field (rhetoric and writing), am center-right socially and politically (and white, male, Christian), have fought thru 3 graduate degrees in 10yrs in progressive bastions. My ability to articulate my perspectives and criticize progressive ones has grown tremendously, against vitriol and close mindedness to put it lightly, yet despite these current legislative victories, I’m losing personal desire to remain and teach. The current emotional and cognitive cost to remain is personally high not to mention job placement should my ‘heretical’ beliefs be broadly broadcast (ie. via substack). My family (wife/4girls) and faith keep me afloat yet my academic profession/discipline will likely be a battle (internal and external) for the next decade or two, not some cozy tenure position. Only I can decide, but what could you recommend for someone in my position? 🙏
Whenever the left accuses Conservatives of using force understand that they mean us refusing to fund their agenda. We are not interfering with their freedom of speech, we are just refusing to fund it.
They need to go through the University’s College of Education courses with a fine tooth comb. They are still teaching the DEI to our future teachers on how to include the BS in the elementary and high school classrooms.
God bless you! Thanks for all you have done..I have experienced the world of DEI in a Healthcare Corp. It’s best described as a fast growing malignant cancer. I was shocked at how fast it spread into every aspect of the organization. Including patient care. I think the public is in for a rude awaking in the coming years. We will see how committed someone is to DEI principles when their loved one is having an operation performed by a surgeon who got where they are due to immutable characteristics, not merit.
Unfortunately, not all campuses are complying. The campus I work for has rebranded the DE&I department and some are now being instructed to, "create modules that will not raise flags with the TX legislature." This was the direction given to some working on a course to be presented to high school students enrolled in a summer program on our campus.
Thank you for all you do - you are a man of integrity and courage!
Amazing and the light at the end of the tunnel. Praying for the warriors like yourself whose courage and bravery in confronting this assault can turn the tide. Thank you so much.
Keep this great work coming!!!!
You have up-dated the word 'reconquista' and made it so much more enjoyable. A stunning success in these states...with more to come! Thank you Chris.
Just upgraded to Founding member.
Keep up the great work.
Any chance of your appearing with Loury and McWhorter on Glenn's podcast?
Chris, God bless your steady and scholarly forward march to face this battle head on. Thank you for your bravery. And please know that many of us don’t just read and comment, but are inspired to act, we share your words with our legislators, join local groups, sharing there as well, and hopefully spreading and planting the seeds of change.
