Ron DeSantis is leading half of America against Biden’s woke corporatism

Mar 17, 2023

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida isn’t just making the Sunshine State great again – he’s helping Americans all over America.

The DeSantis model in Florida is serving as a blueprint for other red states from coast to coast to follow.

And now America’s Governor is leading nearly half of the United States against President Joe Biden’s woke corporatism.

Welcome to woke capitalism

Republicans have long been stereotyped as the political party in bed with big business.

At one point in time that may have been the case – but in recent election cycles, it’s become clear the opposite is true.

For a myriad of reasons, millennial corporate leaders tend to favor Democrats and far-Left causes.

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has made a nationwide name for himself by fighting Big Business interests – like Disney – and coming out in the winner’s circle.

And DeSantis has doubled-down his efforts by divesting in mega conglomerate BlackRock, for the company’s woke policies.

BlackRock, a do-it-all company that is closely aligned with the World Economic Forum and the Democrat Party, has a history of pushing for social activism and woke policies.

The company has pushed for carbon-emission reductions, DEI board hires, and other Environmental Social Governance (ESG) moves.

And now they’ll be without $2 billion in Florida investments.

But America’s Governor isn’t stopping at BlackRock.

The Republican Governor of the Sunshine State approved a measure preventing the Florida Retirement System Pension Plan from investing in any company that follows ESG.

“Corporations across America continue to inject an ideological agenda through our economy rather than through the ballot box,” DeSantis said in a press release.

“Today’s actions reinforce that ESG considerations will not be tolerated here in Florida, and I look forward to extending these protections during this legislative session.”

America’s Governor is leading the charge

DeSantis’ bold move has started a trend in other red states.

And now the potential Presidential pick is formalizing an alliance with 18 other red states all vowing to take a stand against President Biden’s ESG agenda.

“We as freedom loving states can work together and leverage our state pension funds to force change in how major asset managers invest the money of hardworking Americans, ensuring corporations are focused on maximizing shareholder value, rather than the proliferation of woke ideology,” a joint statement read. “[Biden’s actions] puts the pensions of thousands of hardworking Americans at risk to the radical environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) movement, rather than prioritizing investment decisions on the highest rate of return.”

The statement went on to point out that American workers and retirees are already struggling to make their paychecks and retirements stretch thanks to runaway Bidenflation driving up the cost of almost everything.

“The proliferation of ESG throughout America is a direct threat to the American economy, individual economic freedom, and our way of life,” the statement continues.

“Putting investment decisions in the hands of the woke mob to bypass the ballot box and inject political ideology into investment decisions, corporate governance, and the everyday economy.”

Along with Florida, the other states joining this effort include: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
