Opponents of anti-racism education win big in a bitterly divided election in Southlake, Texas. Conservative candidates who opposed a school diversity plan won every local race, taking about 70% of the vote in the wealthy Dallas-Fort Worth suburb. https://t.co/m7rtlYh3X0— NBC News (@NBCNews) May 3, 2021
From @decunningham2: While Joe Biden carried the Tarrant portion of #TX06 by 12 points, Republicans performed exceptionally well in the special election. Republican candidates combined for an 8-point win over Democratic ones, and the election itself will result in an RvR runoff. pic.twitter.com/HYoS4Xrbhc— Elections Daily (@Elections_Daily) May 2, 2021

BTW, I predicted this.
Back in 2019, I anticipated that Donald Trump would lose the 2020 election. I also predicted that the Wokelash and the collapse of Conservatism, Inc. would begin shortly thereafter.
“Candidates opposed to teaching ‘critical race theory’ in the classroom have swept a local school board election in Texas, following a bitterly contested campaign that saw passions rise on both sides.
In Saturday’s election in Southlake, candidates opposed to the new curriculum won the two open seats on the Carroll Independent School District board overwhelmingly, with nearly 70 percent of the vote.
The election followed a harsh dispute over plans the district introduced last summer to require diversity and inclusion training after a video went viral showing some of its high school students laughing as they shouted the N-word.
Parents packed school board meetings to oppose the plan, arguing it would create ‘diversity police’ and discriminate against white children. Some even pulled their kids out of the district, and one mother sued, pausing the plan’s implementation. …
In Saturday’s election, the result was a landslide, with candidates backed by the conservative Southlake Families PAC winning every race by a nearly 40-point margin, according to Southlake Style.
In addition to the two seats up for election on the school board, conservative candidates swept the elections for mayor and two open city council seats.
Voter turnout for the election shattered participation records for a local race in Southlake.
The results, which come amid a national debate about lessons on race in the classroom, were as a victory for parents who view critical race theory (CRT) as damaging and divisive. But the outcome was a bitter disappointment for those who view CRT as vital to fighting racism. …”
This was in a wealthy suburban school district in Tarrant County that swung to Joe Biden in the 2020 election. Imagine what White working class voters think about this shit. There is a revolt against wokeness brewing among White parents in even the bluest coastal enclaves.
If anything is true, the polls are underestimating the breadth and depth of the pent up resentment against political correctness or wokeness. We know this is true because White professionals lie about it to pollsters. There is so much pressure to conform to woke progressivism that the people who dissent from the elite orthodoxy hide their true beliefs. It is by far the most potent of all cultural issues.
Note: You’ve probably noticed that we changed our tone here and have been heavily leaning into this. Wokeness is nothing more than explicit anti-whiteness. We need to be harnessing the backlash and pushing it in a pro-White direction and exploiting the issue to undermine “antiracism.”
