Red-State Governor Destroys Far-Left With Aggressive New Law

This week, Republican Governor Kay Ivey signed a measure into law that prohibits offices promoting diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) from being located in public schools and colleges.

Introduced in February, the measure also forbids restrooms to be based on “biological sex” and forbids publicly supported institutions from endorsing and spreading “particular contentious notions.” After the measure passed the state House of Representatives 75–28, Ivey signed it into law. CNN reports that Ivey stated the purpose of the bill was to thwart a “liberal political movement antithetical to what the majority of Alabamians think.”

In a statement to CNN, Ivey said that her government “will continue to value the state of Alabama’s rich diversity” and that this is unaffected by the law. On October 1, the law is scheduled to take effect.

Furthermore, no “training, orientation, or course work that supports or demands agreement to a controversial notion” may be demanded of contractors, employees, or students. Eight “divisive concepts” are listed in the bill, such as the notion that “any race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, or national origin is inherently superior or inferior,” or that “fault, blame, or bias should be assigned” based on “race, sex, ethnicity, color, religion, or national origin,” or that moral character is innately racist.

A crackdown on DEI practices has also started in other states. For example, in November 2023, the Iowa Board of Regents ordered the elimination of all DEI programs at state colleges, with certain exceptions made for those that complied with federal standards. Following Republican Governor Ron DeSantis’ signing of a bill in May 2023 prohibiting DEI at state-funded colleges, the University of Florida shuttered its “Office of the Chief Diversity Officer, removed DEI posts and administrative appointments, and suspended DEI-focused contracts with outside vendors” in March.
