In yet another random act of federalism out of the Sunshine State, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed several education reform bills to expand civic lessons, ban “intellectually oppressive” environments and teach students that communism is evil.
“Why would somebody flee across shark infested waters, say leaving from Cuba, to come to southern Florida? Why would somebody leave a place like Vietnam? Why would people leave these countries and risk their [lives] to be able to come here?” DeSantis said. “It’s important that students understand that.”
In a tweet, DeSantis urged that the civics curriculum will celebrate patriotism.
“FL students will learn about patriots who come to America after fleeing communist regimes. Our students will learn from an integrated civic education curriculum that compares our rights & freedoms to places where they don’t exist like China and North Korea.”
One of the bills seeks to protect free speech at state universities by banning schools from censoring ideas and opinions “they may find uncomfortable, unwelcome, disagreeable, or offensive,” per Just the News.
“It used to be thought that a university campus was a place where you’d be exposed to a lot of different ideas. Unfortunately now, the norm is really these are more intellectually repressive environments,” DeSantis said. “You have orthodoxies that are promoted and other viewpoints are shunned, or even suppressed. We don’t want that in Florida.”

Gov. Ron DeSantis, you will have my vote if you run for President. You have so much common sense, you drive liberals more insane than they already are! Gov. Ron DeSantis you are a true patriot.
Though Why did the article writer think “THIS IS yet another act of random Federalism”??
“Liberal education is defined as a well-rounded educational program in the liberal arts where you learn the fundamentals of academic subjects such as literature, philosophy, mathematics, and social and physical sciences as distinct from professional and technical subjects.”
Todays so-called liberal education is neither liberal nor non-professional. Students are quickly converted to professional media manipulators, protesters, rebels, socialist subverters and anarchists, some even being taught the technical subjects like how to create a Molotov Cocktail, or how to prevaricate in theological or political educational persuasions without being caught or prosecuted, and the new math where you are taught a country gets rich by spending more than it earns. If a “liber” means “free” how do you call today’s educational system Liberal when it is designed to corrupt, ensnare, and enslave so many American minds? Self-Government cannot exist when its people are taught to be socially dependent upon the collective of Government oppression.
I wonder is the anarchists cookbook REQUIRED reading in most of these leftists schools??
O course, an intellectually oppressive environment could be construed as one in which teachers expect students to participate, answer questions, ask questions, in other words, learn something!
I know from experience that I did not really know what to believe until my assumed ideas were challenged by a wide variety of other people who did not agree.
To be a better Christian, associate with Jews, Moslems, Buddhists, and the anti-religious.
To be a better Republican, listen (and reject) the constant line of dishonest propaganda from the CDL group (communists, Democrats, and liberals).
To be a better heterosexual, talk to a homosexual (and reject their chosen twisted lifestyle).
In order to gain the motivation to cling to the truth and right, observe the results of evil in other’s lives.
