A right-wing group in Missouri has launched a “woke heat map” documenting instances of “wokeness” in an attempt to fight back against “critical race theory” and alleged “grooming” in schools across the state.
The group, dubbed “Liberty Alliance,” says it is “committed to fighting back against the Woke agenda that is permeating all across Missouri.”
“The first step in fighting back is uncovering their crazy ideas – from Critical Race Theory to grooming toddlers with sexually explicit books,” the organization states on its website. “That is why we have officially launched the Woke Heat Map – an interactive tool designed to expose the insane actions of the radical Left. This map will alert Missourians of craziness happening in their own communities.”
Right-wing groups have also sought to crack down on left-wing “indoctrination” on college campuses.
Notable among them is Turning Point USA, a conservative youth advocacy group, which runs a “Professor Watchlist” designed to keep right-wing students abreast of “college professors who discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”
The site allows users to submit tips and search for professors by name or university. Some professors on the list include activist Angela Davis, linguist Noam Chomsky, author Ibram X. Kendi, and former FBI Director James Comey. As of 2016, there were roughly 200 academics on the list.
There is the Alliance Defending Freedom: ADF is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
The list specifically breaks down each company’s support of free speech in the market, the workplace, and the public square, analyzing everything from political giving to DE&I (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) policies.
Alliance Defending Freedom also rates ”woke” corporations, and has its “Viewpoint Diversity Score,” a 50-company index that “evaluates corporate policies, practices, and activities to determine whether companies respect their stakeholders’ freedom of expression and freedom of religion or belief as a standard part of doing business.”
