Pushback Starts: Texas Legislator Offers Bill To Stop Wokeness On Campuses | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Hank Berrien.

    A bill from a Texas legislator is targeting the often one-sided leftist political viewpoints present in higher education institutions, demanding that DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) offices on campuses be banned.

    The bill, Texas H.B. 1006, states clearly that "each institution of higher education has the general responsibility to foster a diversity of viewpoints" and to "maintain political, social and cultural neutrality." It was introduced by Republican Rep. Carl Tepper.

    The bill says that public institutions of higher education must adopt a policy that must "prohibit the funding, promotion, sponsorship, or support of any office of diversity, equity, and inclusion." The institution must allow student organizations and faculty to invite speakers to speak on campus and "establish disciplinary sanctions for students, student organizations, or faculty who unduly interfere with the expressive activities of others on campus."

    The bill also provides an opportunity for redress for someone who feels the institution has failed in obeying the standards of the bill, allowing them to bring an action for injunctive relief to compel the institution to comply. The fees and costs that the person bringing the action would garner would come from the budget of the office of the chief executive officer of the institution or the institution's system.

    Education activist Christopher Rufo, whose dedicated work has exposed the use of Critical Race Theory-tinged curricula in schools and other organizations, praised the bill.

    "D.E.I programs have become offices of racialist ideology, speech suppression, and political indoctrination-and deserve zero taxpayer support," Rufo said while announcing that he would be "making a series of announcements early next year about a national campaign to abolish D.E.I. offices and reform higher education from the ground up."

    "We are assembling a team of the brightest policy minds in the country and will be *laying siege the universities*," he declared.

    Rufo has exposed the impact of the diversity movement numerous times: in the Seattle city government in July 2020; in the company that designs nuclear weapons for the United States in August 2020; in the San Diego Unified School District in December 2020; and in the second-largest defense contractor in America in July 2021.

    Former Heritage Foundation president Dr. Ed Feulner has said of DEI programs at universities, "In some of the world's greatest universities, woke is everywhere. We're all in favor of more opportunity, but equity implies everyone will turn out equal and it has become more of a leveling down."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
