Florida Governor Ron DeSantis racks up wins at a rate that stuns Democrats and left-wing activists in the corporate press.
DeSantis’ latest assault strikes at the very heart of the modern left.
And now Ron DeSantis dropped a major bombshell that is really bad news for Democrats.
Liberals now depend on woke corporations to impose socialist policies the left can never win at the ballot box.
The latest example of corporate America enforcing the left’s orthodoxy comes in the form of the “Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance” scheme known as ESG.
Leftists refuse to actually define ESG because of how destructive it is.
Woke CEOs will withhold investments unless governments adhere to the Green New Deal and live by social justice warrior rules of “equity.”
The World Economic Forum praised the nation of Sri Lanka for earning the highest ESG score.
But adopting the ESG model led to the collapse of the Sri Lanken government as the Green New Deal destroyed farming and food production leaving the people starving.
A rebellion in the streets drove the president from the country and it is now a state of nature.
Governor DeSantis pledged to stop woke corporations from infecting Florida with ESG and turning the Sunshine State into a socialist utopia straight out of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s dreams.
The governor announced that a top priority in the 2023 legislative session would be a bill banning the state from investing pension funds in companies that use ESG.
Governor DeSantis’ bill would also stop financial institutions from refusing service to Floridians based on political views.
According to a press release on the governor’s website the bill includes three main components:
Prohibit big banks, credit card companies, and money transmitters from discriminating against customers for their religious, political, or social beliefs.
Prohibit State Board of Administration (SBA) fund managers from considering ESG factors when investing the state’s money.
Require SBA fund managers to only consider maximizing the return on investment on behalf of Florida’s retirees.
The governor explained this bill was necessary to stop woke corporations from trampling the rights of ordinary citizens.
“The leveraging of corporate power to impose an ideological agenda on society represents an alarming trend,” Governor Ron DeSantis said in a press release. “From Wall Street banks to massive asset managers and big tech companies, we have seen the corporate elite use their economic power to impose policies on the country that they could not achieve at the ballot box. Through the actions I announced today, we are protecting Floridians from woke capital and asserting the authority of our constitutional system over ideological corporate power.”
The left using woke corporations to exert their political will over citizens is an attack on democracy.
And Governor DeSantis pledged voters – and not left-wing social justice warrior CEOs – would decide public policy in Florida.
“Do we govern ourselves through our constitution and through our elections or do we have these masters of the universe occupying these commanding heights of society?” DeSantis stated.
“For every master of the universe who’s prattling on about, you know, no emissions and all this stuff, I don’t see very many of them giving up their private jets,” DeSantis concluded.
