Veteran Rails Against Florida School Board’s Equity Statement: ‘Your Job is Education, Not Indoctrination!’
“We are the people, we have a voice, our votes are our weapons, and we will use them in 2022 and beyond”
One positive thing to come out of the pandemic and school closures is that people’s eyes have been opened to what is being taught in American schools.
Angry citizens are speaking out and getting more involved with school boards.
In Florida, a video of a veteran reacting to his school board’s ‘racial equity statement’ is going viral.

Florida military veteran goes viral railing against school’s racial equity statement: Your job is education, ‘not indoctrination’
A Florida military veteran went viral this week after delivering an impassioned speech at a school board meeting railing against the district’s recent racial equity statement.
“The school board recently adopted an equity statement. Why? Your only job is education, not indoctrination,” the unidentified man shouted at the Palm Beach County school board, resulting in cheers from the audience.
“Attention board members: Our nation is a republic! We are the people, we have a voice, our votes are our weapons, and we will use them in 2022 and beyond,” the man continued. “We in the military, our blood, our sweat, is the equity. It is courage, character; not color, not gender, that makes this nation great. Working Americans are united, we are not divided. Stop trying to incite division among us.”
“We are Americans first, and we will be free always,” he said at the end of the clip.

At least Florida has Governor Ron DeSantis. He has been pretty clear on his views of this.
WTXL News reports:
DeSantis hopes to block Critical Race Theory from Florida classrooms
Governor Ron DeSantis denounced Critical Race Theory during a press conference in Pensacola Friday morning, saying he would stop it from being taught in Florida’s public schools.
DeSantis held the press conference to announce a series of tax breaks for consumers. When asked about Critical Race Theory, DeSantis responded, “You can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.”
Critical Race Theory examines the ways in which race and racism influence American politics, culture and the law.
The governor said it was offensive to taxpayers to teach Critical Race Theory in schools, claiming the theory teaches children to hate their country and each other. According to Purdue University, Critical Race Theory scholarship shows how racism continues to be persuasive and why it denies individuals their constitutional rights.
