One of the top issues in American politics is the teaching of Marxist-based Critical Race Theory to children in our schools.
Parents are showing up at local school board meetings in droves across the country to voice their opposition to Critical Race Theory.
And Florida Governor Ron DeSantis just signed three bills that will make proponents of Critical Race Theory red with rage.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is a rising star in the Republican Party.
Republican voters like the fact that Ron DeSantis is willing to stand up and fight back against the Democrats and their mouthpieces in the Fake News Media.
Despite being viciously attacked by the media, DeSantis kept Florida mostly open during the entire COVID-19 pandemic.
He opposed authoritarian mask mandates and also banned so-called “vaccine passports” in Florida.
And under his guidance, the Florida Board of Education recently banned the Marxist-based Critical Race Theory from being taught to students in the Sunshine State.
But Ron DeSantis just took the fight directly to the Left by signing three bills on Tuesday that will make the Democrats and corporate-controlled media turn red with rage.
“Today, Governor Ron DeSantis signed HB 5, SB 1108 and HB 233 that will collectively strengthen civics instruction and civics literacy education in Florida’s kindergarten through postsecondary public schools,” said DeSantis in a press release.
H.B. 5 will require high school students to learn about ideologies that “conflict with the principles of freedom and democracy essential to the founding principles of the United States,” particularly “communism and totalitarianism.”
The bill also establishes a “Portraits in Patriotism” library, which will be based on the lives of those who have represented civic-minded qualities.
“We have a number of people in Florida, particularly southern Florida, who’ve escaped totalitarian regimes, who’ve escaped communist dictatorships to be able to come to America,” DeSantis said about the “Portraits in Patriotism” library.
One of the other bills, SB 1108, will make both a civic literacy course and assessment a requirement to graduate from state colleges and universities in Florida.
Furthermore, in an attempt to counter conservative censorship on college campuses, HB 233 requires state colleges and universities to annually assess the “viewpoint diversity and intellectual freedom at their institutions.”
“It used to be thought that a university campus was a place you’d be exposed to a lot of different ideas,” DeSantis said.
“Unfortunately, now, the norm is really that these are more intellectually oppressive environments. You have orthodoxies that are promoted, and other viewpoints are shunned or even suppressed. We don’t want that in Florida. You need to have a true contest of ideas,” declared DeSantis. “Students should not be shielded from ideas and we want robust First Amendment speech on our college and university campuses.”
