In last week’s article, I discussed Anheuser-Busch’s decline due to its ads with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. Last I checked, Anheuser-Busch had lost $6 billion in value. The whole “go woke, go broke” mantra seems to actually be affecting a company.

It seems people are finally standing up to the woke agenda, and I commend those individuals. It is a total disgrace to allow a man to parade around in women’s—and sometimes teen girl’s—clothes, using him and his mental illness to boost a company’s woke agenda.

Parents, we are in a stronger battle than ever with the woke agenda, and now it’s in our classrooms. We can’t pretend that it isn’t. Any completely honest teacher will tell you that the curriculum working its way into the classroom is not what you want your children reading or learning from.

Thankfully, people are starting to realize this. According to an 1819 news article by Craig Monger, a recent poll taken by the ALGOP showed that out of the 1,610 surveyed, 36% said that protecting children from woke policies was the most important issue to them.

"People are tired of a liberal federal Department of Education trying to brainwash our children with their progressive agenda," said ALGOP chairman John Wahl. "Even members of the Democrat party have had enough. We need to let children be children again. Education should be about reading, writing and arithmetic, and not social engineering. It's time to stop teaching our children divisive concepts that push woke policies and transgender lifestyles, and instead support returning control to parents and local teachers.”

It’s great to see our political leaders pushing back, but how long will it last? Will they fight until the end to ensure our children won’t be indoctrinated, or are they just saying this to sound good because people are riled up?

Or perhaps our political leaders are finally realizing that it’s time to do something! Take our state back. Take our classrooms back. Take our children back! 

Let’s be vigilant as to where the woke agenda creeps in. For starters, they get to our innocent children through classrooms and books in public libraries, a fact recently noted in another 1819 News article about a group of concerned moms in Prattville, AL, who are struggling to get several LGBTQ+ books aimed at children removed from the toddler and children's section of the Prattville library. 

I grew up in Prattville and attended school there. I did many summer reading programs at the public library. I can’t even imagine picking up a book like those mentioned in the article. The library should be a safe place where mom can grab a book and so can her child, allowing both to drift away to the beautiful stories unfolding on the pages. But that’s no longer the case. We will almost certainly have to look at every book that our children pick up to ensure that it is appropriate.

I said it last week and will say it again. Until we hit these companies and institutions where it hurts—financially—they will continue to feed this in every direction they can. Cell phones, apps, YouTube, social media platforms, schools, libraries, and anywhere young, naïve children can be influenced—if a parent is not vigilantly watching, that is.

Alabama, let's show them that the fight isn’t over. We will stand in the gap. But it is going to take all of us saying no, making no exceptions. It’s our responsibility to keep our children safe and teach them truth. We can do better … and we will do better.
