‘Poison’: FL Gov. Ron DeSantis Eviscerates Critical Race Theory – ‘Happy To Have Banned It In Florida’

DeSantis said he’s happy he banned Critical race theory in the State of Florida, according to The Daily Wire.

“You said the woke class wants to teach kids to hate each other rather than teaching them how to read.”

“We’re not going to let them bring nonsense ideology into Florida schools. You love the state; you love the country. And it’s unthinkable: There are people in positions of leadership in the federal government who believe that we should teach kids to hate our country. We’re not going to stand for it in Florida. Tell us why.”

“First of all, Sean, we’re happy to have banned it in Florida.”

“It’s not going to be allowed in Florida classrooms. Spending tax dollars to teach kids that America is a rotten place is absolutely unacceptable. If you look at how some of this stuff manifests itself in classrooms, that we have seen examples of, it’s not a conspiracy theory, dividing kids based on race, trying to say some are oppressors and some are oppressed based on race. Attacking law enforcement and saying law enforcement attacks people based on race. Those things are poison.”

“That is not what we should be doing.”

“What we should be doing is solid curriculum based on the actual facts of American history and teaching kids what it means to be an American. And part of what it means to be an American is we judge people, not on the color of their skin, but on the content of their character.”

“Well, the good thing is a lot of them are leaving because of those radical policies, and they’ve actually been repelled, and they’re coming because we are an oasis of freedom. So I think that that’s really a good sign.”

Partial TRANSCRIPT:

Hannity: One governor, by the way, who has become a beacon of hope for Americans in Florida and beyond: Governor Ron DeSantis. He’s standing up against Critical Race Theory, against rioting, lawlessness, and against lockdowns. He’s joining us tonight with reaction. Governor, good to see you. Thank you for being with us. Let me read what you said about critical race theory. You said the woke class wants to teach kids to hate each other rather than teaching them how to read. We’re not going to let them bring nonsense ideology into Florida schools. You love the state; you love the country. And it’s unthinkable: There are people in positions of leadership in the federal government who believe that we should teach teach kids to hate our country. We’re not going to stand for it in Florida. Tell us why.

DeSantis: Well, first of all, Sean, we’re happy to have banned it in Florida. It’s not going to be allowed in Florida classrooms; spending tax dollars to teach kids that America is a rotten place is absolutely unacceptable. If you look at how some of this stuff manifests itself in classrooms, that we have seen examples of, it’s not a conspiracy theory, dividing kids based on race, trying to say some are oppressors and some are oppressed based on race. Attacking law enforcement and saying law enforcement attacks people based on race. Those things are poison. That is not what we should be doing. What we should be doing is solid curriculum based on the actual facts of American history and teaching kids what it means to be an American. And part of what it means to be an American is we judge people, not on the color of their skin, but on the content of their character.

Hannity: You know, I look at Florida, where I’m leaning heavily to moving very soon. And I look at your state against critical race theory; you have no state income tax; you have no inheritance tax. You are for law and order and you reward good policing to keep people safe and secure. You go down the list; you didn’t have draconian shutdowns. This is, there’s such a dramatic difference now emerging between red states like yours and blue states like New York, California, New Jersey and Illinois. How do you reconcile these differences? They’re so dramatic?
