In a hot article just published on the Blaze dot com, Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis demonstrates his competence as Governor and his responsibility for carrying out the will of the people.
For his decision to sign the “Parental Rights in Education” bill, DeSantis was criticized by Disney, an the target of an irrational rant that didn’t even make sense by Chasten Buttigieg (husband of Pete Buttigieg) on Twitter.
Let’s start with the Tweet.
Every LGBTQ student, teacher, parent, nurse, astronaut, mechanic, soldier, etc in Florida is still LGBTQ. The governor can sign a bill making it illegal to acknowledge their existence, but he can’t make them disappear with a pen. Love will always win, friends. Onward.Chasten Buttigieg (Twitter)
The Governor did not sign a bill making it illegal to acknowledge the existence of LGBTQ members. Buttigieg’s Tweet is really an over-the-top reaction to a provision in the bill that has nothing to do with the LGBTQ community and everything to do with parents protecting their children from what they feel is inappropriate for them at their ages between Kindergarten and 3rd grade.
Prohibits teaching children about gender identity or sexual orientation in kindergarten through third grade: “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”
And now Disney (the Company)?..
Disney also lashed out by declaring that it will push for a recently approved piece of legislation to either be repealed by the state legislature or rejected by the courts.
DeSantis, at this point, made it known that Disney had crossed the line with this statement.
And the Governor responds..
“This state is governed by the interests of the people of the state of Florida. It is not based on the demands of California corporate executives. They do not run this state. They do not control this state,”Ron DeSantis
The state of Florida is governed by the interests of the people, and is not based on the demands of California corporate executives. This is where Ron DeSantis wins. That’s what our democratically elected officials are supposed to do; represent the will of the people.
I applaud DeSantis for not only demonstrating what it truly means to be a Governor of a state in this country, but for standing up to that new threat America is facing right now.
The people in Florida have spoken, and the parents of students have spoken. They want their young children protected. What’s wrong with that? Again, I repeat, what’s wrong with that?
I agree with the provision in the bill, and I can’t even believe it would be challenged in the way it has.
I mean Buttigieg is using love in his Tweet, “Love will always win,” and you have to understand, these are the kinds of over-the-top and non-sensical statements we’ll see from people who:
- are trying keep the country divided
- promote a loose interpretation of the Constitution
- would rather have our elected officials carry out the demands of private interest groups instead of the will of the people
Again we see that new threat the America people are facing, Fascism. (Government/Corporations) (Buttigieg/Disney)
This is a win for Ron DeSantis.
This is a win for the state of Florida.
This is win for the Floridian people.
This is a win for America!
