Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has now announced new actions designed to target and punish corporations pushing an ultra-woke agenda.

As News Six reports:

DeSantis said “imposing woke ideology on the economy” has become prevalent among the “biggest economic actors” in the country. He listed examples of Wall Street, banks, major asset managers and big tech companies.

“And what you’ve seen is you’ve seen a rise of something called ESG — environmental, social, governance — where they will grade different companies based on how they’re performing on those metrics. And then even using that when they’re managing pension funds for people and we’ve got retired teachers, law enforcement, that rely on these pension funds, and they’re putting in all these other criteria rather than just what’s the best investment,” he said.

The governor said Florida would prohibit the State Board of Administration’s fund managers from investing the state’s money based on political factors.

DeSantis also said Florida would prohibit Wall Street, banks, credit card companies and money transmitters, like PayPal, “from discriminating against customers for their religious, political or social beliefs.”

DeSantis made the announcement during a news conference in Tampa.


  1. Bravo. Other red states should follow suit and remove all their investments from ESG directed companies.

  2. So now Uncle Ron wants to start limiting Bill of Rights freedoms and responsibilities for big corporations, more than just Hobby Lobby religious rights over Constitutional rights. Well, he’ll soon be gone from the Florida, if not American, political scene if he keeps touting ‘freedom’ and stopping it with new laws like limiting corporations’ rights. Bye, bye, Uncle Ron.
