    Surge Summary: When it comes to addressing a key, transgender outrage of our day, rising Republican star Kristi Noem stumbles. Is it another example of “wokeness” at work even among principled conservatives?

    by Gary Bauer

    South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is a rising star in the Republican Party.  In fact, she was mentioned [Monday] by President Trump as a potential 2024 contender for the White House.

    But she’s hit a bump in the road.  After telling South Dakota how “excited” she was to sign legislation that protected young female athletes from being forced to compete against biological boys who claim to be women, Gov. Noem instead vetoed the bill.

    If voters are sick and tired of anything, it’s politicians who say one thing and do the opposite.

    So what happened?  It appears as though Noem caved to pressure from the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and the NCAA.

    This is just another example of woke corporations attempting to impose their values on the rest of America.  It happened in Georgia.  It happened in Indiana.  It happened in North Carolina.

    Not only that, but big corporations are also advocates for amnesty and cheap labor.  They’re not only undermining the values of most Americans, but they are also undermining their economic security as well.

    They’re using their power to intimidate conservative governors and legislators from passing legislation that the people support.  And they do it by threatening the jobs of the people in those states.  It’s outrageous!

    It’s one thing for conservatives to support entrepreneurs and small businesses.  But we should feel no sense of obligation to woke multinational corporations like Amazon, Facebook, Google, etc.
