Is it time to finally call Governor Ron DeSantis a goody two-shoes?
At every turn, DeSantis seemingly makes the correct decision for his state by consistently and correctly identifying the true enemies of the people and fighting tirelessly against them.
Whether it be Joe Biden’s insidious administration, Dr. Fauci’s medical authoritarianism, the propagandist media, and now the anti-white far-left, DeSantis knows who to take on and is unafraid of doing so.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proposed legislation to ban state funding from schools that teach critical race theory and prohibit corporations from including it in employee training programs.
On Wednesday, DeSantis announced the Stop WOKE Act at a press conference, blasting critical race theory and “wokeness” as “an attempt to delegitimize our history and to delegitimize our institutions.”
Critical race theory, which says U.S. institutions and culture are systemically racist and oppressive to racial minorities, has generated widespread controversy nationwide over its presence in public school curriculum.
Progressive activists and Democratic politicians have insisted the academic framework is not taught in public schools despite substantial evidence to the contrary and say efforts to ban it are attempts to whitewash American history and avoid teaching students about racism.
“I view the wokeness as a form of cultural Marxism,” DeSantis continued. “They want to tear at the fabric of our society and our culture, really things we’ve taken for granted, like the ability of parents to direct the upbringing of their kids.”
Florida rejects narratives that teach our children and culture to hate our nation and to hate each other.

If adopted, the legislative proposal would expand on the governor’s directive to the Florida Department of Education earlier this year that prohibited the inclusion of critical race theory in public schools. The new law also treats businesses that require critical race theory training as maintaining a “hostile work environment” under Florida law.
DeSantis, who is running for reelection as governor in 2022, is widely seen as a potential 2024 presidential contender and often leads Republican primary polling when Former President Donald Trump is not included in the list of possible candidates.
If only more elected Republicans – like Mitch McConnell – were brave enough to match the intensity of the far-left in their efforts to radical transform the country into a dystopian egalitarian hellhole.
