Earlier this week, The Floridian posted a clip from the Netflix children's series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous in which two young women are shown kissing. This is just the most recent example of how left-wing elites seek to remodel American culture. On Friday, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) wrote a letter for the American Principles Project outlining the far-left cultural threat.

"Healthy families are at the core of any strong society. Ancient tradition, modern social science, and common sense all agree on this. And yet today, family life is under attack from powerful forces across the nation," the letter opens. Rubio says that "a powerful faction of cultural Marxists" are behind the destruction of traditional American family life, small in number but highly influential. Dissemination of their propaganda occurs through institutions such as education, media, and Silicon Valley. Moreover, "upscale liberals now push the Marxists’ anti-American, anti-family agenda at every level of society."

The letter then describes various measures used to implement this agenda, such as the "draconian" COVID-19 restrictions placed on schools. These remote learning initiatives kept kids out of the classroom for a year, "to satisfy liberal paranoia." Note, Rubio describes, that children were at lowest risk for COVID. "The social and psychological damage inflicted on children... will have lasting consequences for years to come."

Subsequently, Rubio then dives into troubling education standards and teaching material pushed in schools. "Our children were indoctrinated with the destructive idea that every social interaction is based on race," says Rubio, referring to infamous "Critical Race Theory" classes.

Moreover, Rubio adds that children are exposed to "shocking" inappropriate material teaching gender and sexuality.

Additionally, Rubio thrashes Big Tech such as Google, Instagram, Twitter, and Tik Tok, which "censor conservative voices and spread Marxist propaganda." Likewise, these companies implement addictive features that have seen a decline in mental health in our nation's kids, with more suffering from "depression, anxiety, and loneliness" than ever.

The letter concludes that in order to save the soul of American families, parents must retake the schools their kids attend, and politicians must crack down on Big Tech. "We will have to build a new economic consensus that values Americans as workers, family members, religious believers, and members of their communities, not just as consumers."
