DeSantis Vows To Destroy Critical Race Theory In Florida Schools: Offensive To The Taxpayer

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed critical race theory during remarks that he made late last week at a signing for a state tax cut package, saying that he will “play whack-a-mole all over the state” to destroy the much-criticized ideology wherever it pops up.

“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig,” DeSantis said (video below). “So what we’re doing, the Department, the Florida Board of Education is meeting and they are addressing this. And I told them, they need to address this. And we’ve got to do it. I mean, first of all, it’s offensive. Here we are celebrating tax savings. It’s offensive to the taxpayer, that they would be asked to fund critical race theory, that they would be asked to fund teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other.”

“And it’s also, it’s also based on false history, when they try to look back and denigrate the founding fathers, denigrate the American Revolution, doing all these different things that even very liberal historians say is not supported by the facts,” DeSantis continued. “And so I think what we need is we need the Constitution back in classrooms, we need to make sure civics is a priority, but it needs to be taught accurately. It needs to be taught in a fact based way, not an ideological based way.”

“And we are if we have to play whack-a-mole all over the state, stopping this critical race theory, we will do it,” DeSantis concluded. “So, we’ll be taking action, don’t you worry.”
