GOP Rep Jim Banks is running for the US Senate seat in Indiana.
Banks said in his announcement: “We need conservatives in Washington who aren’t afraid to fight Biden’s radical agenda.”
In the issues section of his Senate campaign page, Banks vows to secure the border, secure our elections, back the blue, defend life, oppose wokeness, stand with Israel, and fix the American economy.
Banks started the first-ever anti-woke caucus in Congress.
In an op-ed, he warned about wokeness and how it “is especially prevalent and dangerous at universities and in primary schools because the Left recognized students as the most vulnerable and useful targets for indoctrination.”
FOX News reported:
A Republican in the House of Representatives will be forming a new caucus to take on “wokeness” across the country, which presents the “greatest domestic threat to America today,” he said.
Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., announced Friday that he will be creating the “first-ever Anti-Woke Caucus” to take on political correctness groups, which he said have formed a “tyranny” that is vastly changing America through “indoctrination.”
“Wokeness is especially prevalent and dangerous at universities and in primary schools because the Left recognized students as the most vulnerable and useful targets for indoctrination,” Banks wrote in an op-ed for American Mind titled”Fighting the Woke Agenda in Congress.”
“This utterly un-American doctrine would be comical were it not so powerful. And it is powerful because it is enforced not only by every major national institution. It is promoted and funded by the federal government itself,” he said.
