Disgusting Nationwide Trend No Match for DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis clearly does not trust what public schools are teaching in his state, and he plans to combat what he considers “indoctrination” regarding social issues, cancel culture, etc., in every way that his administration can.

At a recent news conference, he made his mission abundantly clear.

“Following woke indoctrination in our schools, that is a road to ruin for this country,” he said. “And we’re not going to let it happen in Florida.”

Since becoming governor in 2019, DeSantis has become known for taking combative positions on controversial issues, including education. He recently signed a number of measures aimed at preventing the sort of “indoctrination” he and many in the GOP fear is taking place.

His “Stop Woke” act sets limits on how issues involving race may be taught. And it allows parents to sue teachers and school districts that violate it.

Another measure, the Parental Rights in Education Act, dubbed “Don’t Say Gay” by critics, bans any instruction involving sexual orientation or gender identity in the earliest grades and says beyond that it must be “age appropriate.”

In an interview in June of this year with Christian fundamentalist group, Focus on the Family, DeSantis said he believes there’s a “concerted effort to inject … gender ideology and sexuality into the discussions with the very youngest kids [in our schools].”

DeSantis’ focus on the schools took shape with the onset of the COVID pandemic in 2020, when he began battling with school districts over face masks and other issues. Since then, he’s made parental rights one of his main issues, taking aim at school boards and administrators who he believes need to be held accountable.

In his Focus on the Family interview, he said, “There’s an element on the far left that believes parents really have no role in the education of their kids. You drop them off at school … and they impose the ideology and worldview that they want.”

More recently, DeSantis rolled out a civics education initiative that he says will make sure students in elementary, middle, and high schools aren’t taught a distorted view of history.

“You’re learning the real history. You’re learning the real facts,” he said. “It’s not going to be done in a way to indoctrinate students with whatever modern agenda someone may have.”

Critics of DeSantis and his policies say his initiative is less about kids and parental rights as it is about pandering to the base of GOP Voters. DeSantis is running for re-election as governor in November but is also widely seen as a likely contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.

    Ron DeSantis will be a magnificent president for our country! The democrat far left corporate press has slandered and smeared Donald Trump so much for so long that he doesn’t have a chance of being elected again. Ron DeSantis is strong and the press has not yet begun to attack and slander him because they are preoccupied with Donald Trump. Ron DeSantis is my choice for our country’s next president. Of course, we must never forget about voter fraud and cheating revealed in Dinesh d’ Souza’s book “2,000 Mules.” So the question is: Why hasn’t the weak RINO party ever done anything to fight the democrats cheating and fraud in all elections? I think we need a new political party called the Conservative Part. The RINO party needs to be eliminated and replaced by the Conservative Party.

  3. I feel exactly the same way.

  4. Just what we need; less rights, more uneducated people, more discrimination against citizens, less attention to infrastructure, health, real education,, etc. Florida is at the bottom f the list in most good qualities in the country. DeSantis is a fascist who had already caused countless deaths with his messed up covid response.
    Vote him out asap.

    • What rock does this William Stout live under. Everything he seems to believe in is socialist/communist. If you put his brain in a bird it would fly backwards.
