Ron DeSantis just released a plan to protect the economic freedom of Floridians from the woke mob

Feb 16, 2023

Ron DeSantis has been fighting to rid Florida’s educational system of the Left’s woke ideology.

DeSantis is also going after politics in the banking and financial sectors.

And Ron DeSantis just released a plan to protect the economic freedom of Floridians from the woke mob.

Most Americans are now aware of how deeply-entrenched the woke Left is in our nation’s educational system.

But a lot of Americans are unaware that the Left’s woke ideology is slowly taking over the financial and banking sectors as well.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) banking is a new scheme Democrats and the Left are using to try and impose the Green New Deal on America by forcing state pension funds to prioritize woke politics over profits.

Ron DeSantis previously signed a resolution prohibiting banks, payment processors, corporations, and credit card companies from rejecting services to Floridians based on their social, religious, or political views.

But DeSantis is now taking action to protect state pension funds and 401k investment funds from the Left’s woke ESG’s.

On Monday, DeSantis held a press conference where he stood behind a sign that said “Government of Laws, Not Woke Politics.”

During the press conference, DeSantis ripped left-wing elites for inserting their “political ideology into investment decisions, corporate governance, and really just the everyday economy.”

As DeSantis Daily previously reported, the proposal DeSantis put forward would codify into statute the resolution enacted last year prohibiting ESG investing in pension funds for state and local government employees.

“Our legislative proposal will ensure that financial institutions will no longer be able to discriminate against hard-working Floridians and small businesses on the basis of political, religious or social beliefs.”

“What ESG says is ‘no we’re not going to do, even if it would do a better return, we’re not going to allow you to invest in certain areas,’” DeSantis said, before adding that ESG is “constricting the ability of people to invest your money and that means you’re not going to do as well as you could have.”

“Some people say that you do better with this, but that doesn’t make any sense,” he added.

DeSantis also ripped the Left’s use of Chinese-style “social credit scores” to determine lines of credit and worthiness for bank accounts.

Banks that “engage in corporate activism” would also be prohibited from holding government funds.

Ron DeSantis promised that “Florida is where woke goes to die.”

And he is making good on his promise by booting the woke ideology out of Florida’s financial and banking sectors.
