From ‘Don’t Say Homosexual’ to Slavery, the Left Openly Lies About DeSantis

The Left’s outright lies about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recommend that they worry him and goal to sandbag him via their typical strategies—rampant deceit and racial division.

First, CBS Information’ “60 Minutes” concocted an elaborate fiction during which DeSantis, a Republican, supposedly organized for Palm Seashore County seniors to obtain COVID-19 vaccines via Publix, as a payoff for the grocery chain’s $100,000 donation to his reelection marketing campaign. 

This pay-to-play fantasy started to unravel when Publix defined that its shops had administered seasonal flu photographs for years, and the firm had volunteered to supply COVID-19 photographs on a non-exclusive foundation.

Then, left-wing journalists, politicians, and the neo-radical Walt Disney Co. accused DeSantis of signing the so-called Don’t Say Homosexual invoice and rolling again homosexual rights.

In actual fact, nowhere within the 1,307-word Parental Rights in Schooling Act does the phrase “homosexual” seem. This statute is as silent because the Sphinx about “homosexual,” “straight,” and “celibate.”

The regulation does say that “classroom instruction … on sexual orientation or gender identification might not happen in kindergarten via grade 3,” a superbly affordable place that ordinary People overwhelmingly assist. So, DeSantis’ enemies flat-out lied about this measure, to tar him as a monstrous “homophobe.”

Third, leftists play the race card as routinely as most People breathe. So, naturally, when DeSantis objected to the School Board’s Superior Placement Black Research curriculum, they accused him of—what else?—a racist conspiracy to whitewash slavery.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell outrageously claimed that DeSantis “says that slavery and the aftermath of slavery shouldn’t be taught to Florida schoolchildren.” After DeSantis’ press crew screamed bloody homicide, Mrs. Alan Greenspan conceded that her execrable feedback had been “imprecise”—in the identical approach it could be imprecise to name Florida a Canadian province. Mitchell full-on lied.

White Home press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre additionally lied about DeSantis: “If you consider the research of black People, that’s what he needs to dam.”

DeSantis, actually, signed laws that requires the educating of slavery.

As DeSantis’ press secretary Bryan Griffin informed me, the governor “proposed, championed, and signed” Particular person Freedom, Home Invoice 7. Accepted final April 22, the “Cease WOKE Act” established “required instruction” in Ok-12 authorities faculties, together with “the enslavement expertise, abolition, … the very important contributions of African People to construct and strengthen American society and have a good time the inspirational tales of African People who prospered, even in essentially the most troublesome circumstances.” 

This regulation additionally encourages academics to debate “slavery, racial oppression, racial segregation, and racial discrimination … .”

DeSantis additionally signed Home Invoice 1213 on June 23, 2020, mandating that Florida college students study concerning the 1920 Ocoee Bloodbath, an atrocity perpetrated by Democratic Ku Klux Klan members and a few 250 white racists who fatally shot, burned, and lynched an estimated 30 to 35 black Floridians to cease them from voting and scare others from the polls.

After implementing what he helps, DeSantis just lately opposed particular matters inside the AP course that go far past slavery into one thing resembling, at finest, Black Lives Matter propaganda. A small pattern: 

  • “Intersectionality and Activism” options readings by former Black Panther Angela Davis, the 1980 and 1984 vice presidential nominee of the Communist Celebration USA. 
  • “Motion for Black Lives” highlights Rutgers sociology professor Leslie Kay Jones, who whined about “the white supremacist superstructures that oppress us.”
  • “Black Queer Research” showcases Yale Ladies’s, Gender, & Sexuality Research professor Roderick Ferguson who explains: “It means constructing types of queerness that reject the given realities of the federal government and the market.”

“Florida statute requires the educating of slavery and its aftermath,” DeSantis’ deputy press secretary Jeremy Redfern famous Feb. 22 by way of Twitter. “We simply know that ‘queer studies’ has nothing to do with Jim Crow.”

The Democrats’ mental and public-policy chapter is confirmed by the truth that leftist politicians and journalists don’t problem DeSantis’ pro-American, pro-freedom, pro-market governing philosophy. As a substitute, they yell, “Homophobe!” and “Racist!” and lie, lie, lie as loudly as potential.
