DeSantis: ‘We’re Not Going To Tolerate It’ (Video)

( – Florida’s GOP Governor Ron DeSantis has enacted legislation that terminates the capacity for educators to exploit a book challenge law previously established to shield students from exposure to pornographic content in educational settings.

The revised legislation now significantly constricts the opportunities for Florida inhabitants, who are not parents of children in the state’s educational framework, to contest book titles, The Daily Wire informs.

“The idea that someone can use the parents’ rights and the curriculum transparency to start objecting to every single book to try to make a mockery of this is just wrong. That’s performative. That’s political,” DeSantis articulated on the eve of the bill’s signing.

DeSantis expressed that constituents are disillusioned by the efforts of certain left-wing activists attempting to banish classic literary works.

“We don’t care about your performative efforts to try to make a name for yourself, that’s not appropriate,” he stated.

“So when you have some school administrators or teachers that are saying that somehow state law requires them to take classic books off the shelves, that is a lie. That is not true. That is depriving students of a valid education,” the governor added.

“So I think that 90% of the things, I mean, when they would say that somehow, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ couldn’t be done when that was on the state’s summer reading list for the Florida Department of Education, don’t tell me Florida law says you can’t do that. When they said you couldn’t do a book about Hank Aaron, when that was the Book of the Month for the Florida Department of Education, don’t tell us you can do that,” DeSantis elaborated.

“We’ve had one teacher put a video out, covered up every book in the classroom, ‘Oh, the state!’” he conveyed in a mocking tone.

“You know, that’s passive aggressive nonsense, and we’re just not going to tolerate it. … Here’s a good test. If I stood here with a photo from one of these books and you guys wouldn’t be able to put it on your air, then it’s probably not appropriate in the sixth-grade classroom. I mean, that’s probably where we go,” Florida’s governor concluded.
