Ron DeSantis continues to earn claps from cultural conservatives as Florida moves a little more to the social Right.
Or, perhaps, to what was the center until very recently.
In May, The Sunshine State’s governor made a promise.
Upon signing a tax-cutting package, he announced he’d “play Whack-A-Mole” against Critical Race Theory in Florida schools.
He spoke of lipstick and stickin’ it to taxpayers:
“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig. … 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. … 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.

“The woke class wants to teach kids to hate each other, rather than teaching them how to read, but we will not let them bring nonsense ideology into Florida’s schools.”
