The Left refuses to acknowledge the scientific fact that there is a biological difference between males and females.
This “woke” ideology could destroy women’s sports.
And Ron DeSantis just spoke one truth that will have the radical Left seeing red.
In recent years, the “woke” Left has pushed to allow transgendered males to participate in women’s sports.
Of course, many Americans are rightly concerned that this will ruin women’s sports, as biological males who claim to be female have an unfair advantage.
Some Republican officials are stepping up and taking action at the state-level to protect the integrity of women’s sports.
Even though the NCAA threatened not to hold the College Football Playoff, the NCAA Tournament, or any other championship events in Florida over it, last year Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that banned biological males from competing in girl’s high school and college sports.
On Tuesday, Ron DeSantis doubled down on his opposition to biological males competing in women’s sports by announcing he will sign a proclamation that recognizes Sarasota native Emma Weyant as the “best female swimmer” in the women’s 500-yard freestyle event.
Weyant recently lost the 500-yard freestyle by 1.75 seconds to Lia Thomas, who became the first biological male to win an NCAA Division One championship in the women’s event.
“If you look at what the NCAA has done in allowing basically men to compete in women’s athletics, and in this case swimming . . . you had the number one woman who finished was from Sarasota, Emma Weyant, she won the silver medal, she’s been an absolute superstar her whole career,” DeSantis began.
“To compete at that level is very very difficult. You don’t just roll out of bed and do it. That takes grit. That takes determination . . . She had the fastest time of any woman in college athletics,” DeSantis continued.
DeSantis then ripped the NCAA for trying to “destroy women’s athletics.”
“Now the NCAA is basically taking efforts to destroy women’s athletics. They’re trying to undermine the integrity of the competition. They’re crowning somebody else the women’s champion, and we think that’s wrong,” DeSantis said.
“This is a Floridian who I think deserves to be recognized,” he continued.
“She earned that. We need to honor that appropriately,” he added.
“If the NCAA was willing to ensure the integrity of women’s competition, she would have been crowned national champion,” DeSantis finished to a round of applause.
From banning the teaching of Marxist-based Critical Race Theory to protecting young children from being brainwashed with “woke” gender ideology to standing up for women’s sports, Ron DeSantis has led the fight in the ongoing culture war against the radical Left every step of the way.
And that is one reason why Democrats are terrified of DeSantis – and why he’s adored by Republican voters.
