Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking a sledgehammer to wokeness in the Sunshine State.
He’s ready to take one of his biggest battles yet.
Now Ron DeSantis is ready to drop the hammer on this iconic system of wokeness.
The rainbow flag has become a political symbol of choice for the woke Left.
It’s been placed in classrooms, government buildings and even flown at U.S. Embassies under President Joe Biden.
The Left is turning the rainbow flag into something flown alongside, and sometimes on top, of the American and state flags, in Democrat-controlled jurisdictions.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came out in support of a bill making its way through the Florida Legislature to ban political flags from government buildings.
“Well, I haven’t seen it, but if you take a position that we’re going to fly the American flag and the state of Florida flag and that’s it, it’s not targeting anybody,” DeSantis said. “It’s basically saying that we’re not going to get into this business of doing this. So I think that’s totally fine.”
He warned that a bill that would only ban a handful of flags would be “content-based” discrimination.
“But if you say we’re going to fly the U.S. flag, we’re going to fly the state of Florida flag on our public buildings, I think that that’s totally appropriate to be able to do,” DeSantis added.
He noted that political flags, like the rainbow one, and for Black Lives Matter, have been flown at embassies around the world under Biden.
“I mean, you have seen around the world, our embassies flying, I mean, it’s just absurd, some of the things that they’ve done,” DeSantis explained. “And so if the Legislature just wants to say, here’s what we’re doing, these two and that’s that, then I don’t think that there’s any problem with that.”
Bills are working their way through the House and the Senate of the Florida Legislature to restrict the use of political flags on government property.
Republican State Senator Jonathan Martin introduced SB 1120, which states that a “governmental entity may not erect or display a flag that represents a political viewpoint, including, but not limited to, a politically partisan, racial, sexual orientation and gender, or political ideology viewpoint. The governmental entity must remain neutral when representing political viewpoints in displaying or erecting a flag.”
The rainbow flag has become the symbol of the radical LGBT movement and its woke agenda.
This divisive political flag’s days are numbered on government property in Florida.
