Democrats keep finding out it’s a bad idea to pick fights with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
But this latest dust up was beyond the pale.
And this attempt to cancel Ron DeSantis just blew up in the Left’s face.
The Tikvah Fund is a conservative group that hoped to rent out the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York for an event in June.
But when the Tikvah submitted a speaker’s list that included Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, trouble began.
As DeSantis Daily previously reported, the museum asked the group to pause its $11,500 payment – half the rental fee – and eventually canceled the event because of Ron DeSantis’ presence.
Chief executive of Tikvah Eric Cohen explained that museum canceled the Governor over Ron DeSantis’ support for the Parental Rights in Education Bill – which prevented teachers from grooming young children with transgender and homosexual agenda ideology.
The New York Times reported:
The next day, Ms. Chan asked the fund to “pause” its $11,500 deposit payment and requested a conversation with its leaders, according to emails. In subsequent phone calls, Eric Cohen, the chief executive of Tivkah, was informed that an event with Mr. DeSantis could not be held at the museum, which describes itself as “a living memorial to the Holocaust,” because the “Don’t Say Gay” bill does not align with its values of inclusivity, Mr. Cohen told The Times.
The museum did not allow political speakers or events at its museum, Mr. Cohen said he was told, despite recent events featuring Democratic politicians like Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Cohen slammed the Museum of Jewish Heritage for engaging in deceitful ideological censorship.
“The museum has implied that Tikvah wanted to host a partisan political event,” Cohen declared. “Our event endorses no candidates and serves no political party. It is all about ideas, just like every prior conference we have held at the museum.”
The institutional Left, from Hollywood to the corporate-controlled media, tried to cancel Ron DeSantis over his standing up to woke ideology infecting schools.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage probably feared left-wing mobs storming the Museum and violently protesting DeSantis.
The Holocaust is a historical horror that should be free from partisan politics.
But instead of standing firm and working with Tikvah to host the event as scheduled, they panicked and folded out of fear of the woke outrage mob.
However, the Left’s attempts to cancel Ron DeSantis only made DeSantis an even bigger star in the minds of Republican voters.
