USAID Announces International Woke Program, Gives Gaetz Firepower to Abolish Agency

Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has introduced a bill to abolish the United States Agency for International Develop (USAID), citing their record of “pushing radical, leftist ideology abroad” instead of employing common diplomatic practices that foster proper relationships with foreign nations that are “consistent with American values.”

According to the Heritage Foundation report, USAID used American taxpayer dollars to take advantage of foreign aid programs to “export radical leftist ideology across the world.”

Abortion programs, gender equity programs, and climate alarmism programs were among those USAID utilized.

Just days after Rep. Gaetz introduced the legislation to abolish USAID, the agency announced a new program that would promote “comprehensive sexuality education.”

The Florida Congressman said that this move by USAID “proved my point in less than 24 hours.”

“On Tuesday, I introduced a bill to abolish USAID. The next day, USAID introduced a new framework to promote “comprehensive sexuality education” abroad via ‘LGBTQI inclusive development.’ They proved my point in less than 24 hours. They do not serve a meaningful purpose. They only work to promote international wokeism. USAID should be abolished,” stated Gaetz.

The legislation would no longer make federal funds available to USAID and would force the agency to rescind unobligated funds and transfer all other assets and liabilities to the Secretary of State.

“American taxpayer dollars are being wasted to fund radical leftist propaganda in foreign countries. The American people will not tolerate government-funded degeneracy at home, and we certainly will not accept its force-feeding abroad under Old Glory,” stated Rep. Gaetz.

He would go on to mention, “USAID does not serve a meaningful purpose. It is used as a slush fund for international wokeism. Therefore, serious lawmakers in Congress should support its complete abolition.”

The legislation is co-sponsored by Representatives Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Eli Crane (R-AZ), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL).

Moreover, Rep. Gaetz also introduced the End Birthright Citizenship Fraud Act of 2023.

The bill would prevent children born to foreign nationals from automatically attaining citizenship at birth, with the exception of lawful permanent residents, lawfully-admitted refugees, and those "performing active services in the U.S. Armed Forces," as Rep. Gaetz's press release described.

Gaetz represents Florida’s 1st District.
