FRANKLIN, Tennessee – Clay Travis, John Rich, and other well-known speakers highlighted an event Tuesday where organizers urged Williamson County residents to rise up against woke ideologies in the public school system.
Members of Williamson Families, a Political Action Committee (PAC), also pressed the several hundred audience members to stand up to — and even run against — school board members who neglect their constituents’ most basic concerns.
Organizers held the event at Liberty Hall at The Factory in Franklin.
Travis, whose children attend Williamson County Schools and who co-hosts The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, said the woke ideology is destined to destroy itself — but only if frustrated Americans stand up and say “no more.”
“Like a lot of you, I paid attention to who I voted for governor. I paid attention to who I voted for for mayor, congressman, and senator. I never ever thought about who I voted for a school board election my entire life,” Travis told the audience.
“I know that that was a flaw now. I know that not being as engaged as a parent allowed what has happened over the last 18 months to happen.”
“I went from America’s favorite Disney mom to America’s favorite domestic terrorist,” Baker said in jest.
The Bible, Baker went on to say, commands people in several passages — 365 of them — not to fear.
“God has given you a do not be afraid for every day of the year,” Baker said.
“So surely you can find your bravery for such a time as this.”
Robby Starbuck, a Republican running to replace U.S. Representative Jim Cooper (D-TN-05) also spoke, alongside his wife Landon.
“We are going to say no to every level of government that wants to tell us where we can work, when we can work, if we can open our doors, if we can’t open our doors, if we have to wear a mask inside or outside. It doesn’t matter. We say no.”
Landon Starbuck, meanwhile, told audience members about what she said are globalist goals to take away parental rights, destabilize the nuclear family, and divide families against themselves.
U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) endorsed Robby Starbuck’s candidacy in June.
Rich, a Country Music star, performed later in the evening.
Williamson Families, according to its website, advocate for strong family values, individual responsibility, respect for tradition, and innovation for the future.
