Ron DeSantis just blew the woke Left’s phony book ban narrative out of the water

Feb 16, 2024

Ron DeSantis made parental rights in education a top priority for his administration.

Democrats and the radical Left are in a frenzy over it.

But Ron DeSantis just blew the woke Left’s phony book ban narrative out of the water.

Ron DeSantis became a top enemy of the radical Left when he declared war on the woke ideology in Florida.

Democrats and the national media smeared him as “anti-gay” when he signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill into law.

Even though the bill only prohibited teaching gender and sex to children in kindergarten through third grade, the Left misnamed it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill and viciously attacked and smeared DeSantis.

DeSantis is currently working to remove pornographic and sexually explicit material from school libraries in Florida.

But left-wing activists are trying to sabotage his efforts by spreading the phony narrative that he is banning books in the Sunshine State.

On Thursday, DeSantis held a press conference where he set the record straight about the alleged “book bans” in Florida.

“Parents in Florida have a right to send their kids to school knowing that they’re going to be educated but not indoctrinated,” DeSantis said. “And so we’ve provided some very robust protections for the rights of parents to direct the education classrooms.”

DeSantis also pointed out how a few “bad actors” are abusing the process by objecting to books, such as, Johnny Appleseed, The Giver, and even the Bible

“You’ve seen people challenge the Bible,” DeSantis said. “You’ve seen people challenge dictionaries, and oh my gosh, in Florida, you had a teacher, I think in the Bradenton area, that put paper over all the books.”

DeSantis ripped the Left for “trying to obscure the reason why parents have been concerned with the things that people, saw which are clearly not appropriate and they’re basically trying to just confuse the issue to act like somehow that classic works are somehow not welcome.”

“So now what we’ve seen is, you have seen activists that will go and just challenge almost anything that’s not appropriate to be happening,” DeSantis declared. “Hijacking this process is not something that we want to encourage in any way,” he continued. “And it’s been from different motivations.”

“Don’t let these folks pull a fast one on you,” he added. “Don’t let them indulge in phony narratives.”

He called on the State Legislature to find a solution to stopping the “abuses in the objection process.”

“Today, I am calling on the legislature to make necessary adjustments, so that we can prevent abuses in the objection process and ensure that districts aren’t overwhelmed by frivolous challenges,” he said.

The radical Left is going all-out to try and stop Ron DeSantis from taking a sledgehammer to the woke ideology in Florida.

But the Left underestimated DeSantis’ commitment to making Florida be “where woke goes to die.”
