Representative Jim Banks (R-IN) led his new Anti-Woke Caucus in unveiling legislation aimed at curtailing the Biden administration’s latest monstrosity of an equity bill that seeks to further redistribute wealth and divide the nation along racial and other toxic lines.
The Anti-Woke Caucus’s bill would defund a February 16th Executive Order, 14091, which allows for the creation of a five-year plan to implement so-called DEI initiatives across most of the nation’s federal agencies. Former Barack Obama advisor and current Biden assistant on matters of domestic policy Susan Rice was pegged to lead the program.
“So-called ‘equity action plans’ are rooted in discrimination, promote division, and directly conflict with American values,” Banks said in a statement released to Breitbart News. “This latest executive order will force every single one of the 23 federal agencies to enact the radical left’s climate and equity agendas. The Anti-Woke Caucus will continue to fight these abuses of power that are meant to pit Americans against one another and tear down the principles that made our country great.”
Banks’ legislation would seek to nullify the purported aim of Executive Order 14091, which declares its purpose to be “to advance an ambitious, whole-of-government approach to racial equity and support for underserved communities.”
The New York Post provided further explanation to the societal fabric-tearing agenda, saying it amounted to former Soviet tactics:
Agency heads will have to submit an annual Equity Action Plan to a newly created White House Steering Committee on Equity, which, if we want to continue the Soviet analogy, will be the DEI equivalent of Gosplan.
Agency heads, by the way, are ordered to “prioritize and incorporate strategies to advance equity” into “individual performance plans for senior executives.”
Indoctrination within the government will continue apace. The Agency Equity Teams “shall support continued equity training and equity leadership development for staff across all levels of the agency’s workforce.”
Joining Banks in the Anti-Woke Caucus are Representatives Mary Miller (R-IL), Kevin Hern (R-OK), Matt Rosendale (R-MT), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), and the Liz Cheney-defeating Harriet Hageman (R-WY).
The Anti-Woke Caucus was created as the GOP reclaimed majority status in the lower chamber and has the goal of combating what Banks calls the “greatest domestic threat to America today.” Anyone who has spent even a minute in corporate training or consumed media across a variety of platforms like traditional media, social media, or entertainment knows how divisive DEI is.
Mary Miller likewise commented on the legislation, adding that the president who ran on a message of unity would rather divide the nation along cultural and social lines than deal with real issues.
“Rather than addressing record-high inflation, burdensome energy costs, and the needs of the American people, Joe Biden bypassed Congress and signed an Executive Order to force taxpayer dollars to fund mandatory woke programming for federal agencies,” she said in a statement to Breitbart News.
“I am joining Congressman Jim Banks in introducing legislation to stop taxpayer dollars from advancing anti-American policies from the Radical Left agenda because the American people need our government focused on repairing our nation from years of damage caused by the Biden Administration’s policies,” she added.
