(Patriot Insider) – Go woke, go broke. That certainly has been the case for corporations in the US, just look at Disney.
The American people are just not down with the left’s radical agenda especially where it concerns the grooming and sexualization of small children.
The companies that acknowledge this and revert from the woke course are wise.
State Farm Insurance found out firsthand just how little Americans actually support the woke culture, specifically transgender ideology being pushed on small children.
After facing backlash for their support of an organization that wanted to supply transgender indoctrination materials aimed at children as young as 5 to schools and libraries, State Farm pulled their support.
State Farm had pledged support for the group “GenderCool,” which was attempting to get 5 books with titles such as “Being Transgender,” “Being Inclusive,” and “Being Non-Binary,” into the hands of school children.
On Monday, the conservative group Consumers’ Research put State Farm on blast for the decision with a video titled “Like a Creepy Neighbor.”
“State Farm tells us they’re a good neighbor,” the narrator begins. “But would a good neighbor target five-year-olds for conversations about sexual identity? That’s what State Farm is doing.”

The next day, State Farm abandoned their support of “GenderCool.”
State Farm spokesman Roszell Gadson explained to The Washington Post that the partnership had ended after it had “been the subject of news and customer inquiries.”
“Conversations about gender and identity should happen at home with parents,” Gadson said in a statement. “We don’t support required curriculum in schools on this topic. We support organizations providing resources for parents to have these conversations. We no longer support the program allowing for distribution of books in schools.”
“As a result, we have made the decision we will no longer be affiliated with the organization,” the company said on its website.
Further, a report from RedState says Rand Harbert, State Farm executive vice president and chief agency, sales and marketing officer, sent out a voice message to agents and others about the company’s support of the book project.
Citing a transcript it obtained, RedState reported that Harbert said, “First and foremost, I want you to hear directly from me that we made a mistake with our involvement in this program — and we’re sorry. As soon as we fully understood the issue Monday morning, the first decision we made was to cease our involvement with this organization.
“Let me be clear, our position is that conversations with children about gender and identity need to happen at home.”
Harbert alluded that State Fair was not fully aware of who they had agreed to give money to and what would be done with it.
“As much as we would like to be aware of every program and involved in every decision, it’s simply not possible as most of these gifts are small. In this case, it was $40,000,” Harbert said.
“However, we recognize even small decisions can have a big impact, and we’re taking the necessary steps, so nothing like this happens again,” he said.
Additionally, RedState also reported that a source at State Farm’s corporate office said all of its charitable donations, partnerships and ventures are now being reviewed.
“We’re an insurance company who’s known to be conservative,” one agent from the Midwest was quoted as saying. “That is why this is so shocking. I can assure you (I’m on a private Facebook page for agents only at 4,000 members) that 99 percent of us are beyond pissed.”
“A big ‘why’ that was circling among agents and in private Facebook groups Monday night was: ‘How in the world was something like this green-lighted and not run by agents’ groups for vetting?’” RedState quoted another agent as saying.
“No way this would have ever been green-lighted had this been run by agents.”
That’s because the vast majority of Americans are repulsed by the idea of small children being indoctrinated with radical left ideology on transgenderism. State Farm made the right choice here. Good for them.
