In his latest podcast episode of “Ask Charlie Anything,” Charlie Kirk breaks down his three rules for moving to another state that does not share the politics of the state you are moving from.
Victor from New Mexico asked Charlie, “What do you think about people leaving blue states to red states? Don’t you think it’s somewhat hypocritical if they leave a blue state to a red state and continue to vote the way they used to?”
Kirk used Florida as his example to answer this question as people have been flocking there from tyrannical states with extreme lock-downs to get back to normalcy and freedom.
He goes on to explain how states handled the Chinese Coronavirus differently, with Florida and South Dakota performing wonderfully while states like New York, California, and Illinois handled it terribly and destroyed their economies by continuing to lock-down and also not allowing schools to open.
Kirk points out that the one common denominator among the terrible states is that they are all run by Democrats. The problem is that people who voted for these politicians and their failed policies are fleeing the blue states for more prosperous red states. Unfortunately they don’t seem to leave their bad ideologies in the place they left and try to change the states that they move to.
Charlie breaks down his 3 Rules for moving:
- People must remember that they are moving for a reason. Moving is not an easy process so the reason is usually a strong one in order to uproot your life. Typically you are not satisfied in your current condition or something looks better on the other side. If you don’t realize that politics play a big role in that decision then you are in for a wake up call.
- The change that you think you want to bring to the state you’re moving to is probably not a good one and should be left in the state you came from. There is a reason the red state you are moving to is doing well as they have policies in place that work for the people in that state.
- A lot of natives in the red state that you are moving to do not have the ability to move and also enjoy the state they live in so don’t impose your failed ideologies from your blue state that will make their situation worse.

A Bill Pushing Left Leaning Politics Into the Classroom in Illinois Has Officially Passed
In an article we previously wrote concerning the Illinois State Board of Education passing a bill called “Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards has officially been upheld by the Illinois Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR).
Some of the new standards include teachers assessing “how their biases affect how they access tools to mitigate their own behavior (racism, sexism, homophobia, unearned privilege, Eurocentrism, etc.)”
Bettina L. Love is a prominent advocate of Critical Race Theory in education and she believes “White Teachers Need Anti-Racist Therapy.”
If teachers do not do so voluntarily the new standards would allow schools to force teachers into therapy for their whiteness , along with punishing them with a loss of license and certification if complaints are made about them not adopting “progressive” ideologies. Teaching about “systemic racism” will be required as well.
Some Republican lawmakers voiced their opposition to the standards earlier this month, saying they add unnecessary politics to the classroom.
Sen. Sue Rezin, R-Morris, said she asked ISBE to include more diverse perspectives on their task forces to avoid standards like this from being so controversial in the future, and said the board made some of the changes Republicans asked for.
Rezin said her office got an unusually high number of calls and emails about these standards.
These new teaching standards will take effect in October 2025.
Some lawmakers were not happy with the decision including Republican Candidate for Governor and Former Senator Paul Schimpf:
“I am extremely disappointed that JCAR approved the State Board of Education’s Culturally Responsive Teacher Standards. These standards politicize the teacher certification process and undermine the authority of local school boards, superintendents, and parents to control their children’s’ education. This is yet another example of top-down, administrative overreach by the Pritzker Administration and illustrates a clear example of why Illinois needs a new governor.”
New Jersey Passes Bill that Requires "Social Justice" and Racism Education in Public Schools
New Jersey lawmakers would like public schools to be held more accountable when it comes to teaching black history. Last month, lawmakers passed a bill that, if signed by Gov. Phil Murphy, would make it a requirement for schools to learn about racism and social justice in order to graduate.
“Our children will learn about Black history and not just being a slave,” said Assemblywoman Angela McKnight (D., Hudson), one of the bill’s sponsors. “We will know the contributions that Black people continue to do.”
The new law will complement the state’s Amistad law, which requires public schools to incorporate African American history. Her bill will put the Amistad Commission under the state Department of Education, tighten regulations and oversight, and mandate professional development for teachers.
Students in high schools across the region have been pushing for changes this year after the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. They want schools to address systemic racism and implicit bias among staff and students.
New Jersey and Pennsylvania require history to be taught, but districts decide the content of their courses.
Cherry Hill East, a school system noted by the Inquirer as “predominantly white,” would be the first school in the state to mandate the course on African-American history in order to graduate. The course was proposed by the students after a Black Lives Matter protest in the spring.
Pleasantville first-grade teacher Tamar LaSure-Owens, who has been leading a charge to infuse Black history into everyday lessons, believes the latest legislation would help teachers better present historically accurate and culturally sensitive information about all races.
“We need training,’ said LaSure-Owens, who has helped develop a model Black history curriculum at the Leeds Avenue School. “We need a curriculum that we can put our hands on.”
