DeSantis Signs Reforms to Teach Florida Students Communism is Evil


Florida Governor Ron DeSantis keeps winning.

After banning Critical Race Theory (another form of cultural Marxism), DeSantis signed educational reforms to teach students the horrors of communism.

The ideology was responsible for 100 million deaths across the globe in the 20th century and those atrocities should be taught in every institution.

While both communism and Nazism were disgusting stains on humanity, the former is severely lacking in school curriculums compared to the latter.

And to be clear, they are both wickedly evil and should be condemned.

Speaking from personal experience, I’ve learned more about the atrocities attributed to communism in the past few years than my entire education.

And I wouldn’t be surprised to hear similar stories.

That’s why a large portion of Millennials and Generation Z are infatuated by communism & socialism.

They weren’t taught the suffering, poverty, and tyranny they produce.

And it’s extra important in Florida since many of its residents fled communist & socialist regimes.

Unsurprisingly, control freaks raged on Twitter condemning to expose the true nature of communistic regimes:

AP reported:

Civics education will be expanded in Florida, including instruction about communist and totalitarian governments, and state universities will be prevented from quashing conservative ideology under bills Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Tuesday.

DeSantis signed three bills at a Lee County middle school, two of which dealt with civics education, the other guaranteeing the freedom of expression at state universities.

DeSantis said students need to be taught that communist and totalitarian governments are 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 life to be able to come here? DeSantis said. ”It’s important that students understand that.”

The new law will require the development of a K-12 civics curriculum that, among other things, would include “portraits in patriotism” that tell the personal stories of civic-mindedness. Among those stories will be “first-person accounts of victims of other nations’ governing philosophies who can compare those philosophies with those of the United States.”

State university students will be required to pass a civic literacy assessment exam and take a course on civic literacy in order to graduate. Currently they can choose the exam or the course. High school students who take a United States Government course will have to take take a civic literacy assessment exam. If they pass, the university civics requirements will be waived.

The third bill DeSantis signed protects free speech at state universities by saying the schools can’t shield students from accessing or observing ideas and opinions “they may find uncomfortable, unwelcome, disagreeable, or offensive.”

Republicans have often criticized universities for promoting liberal ideology. DeSantis said parents worry that when they send their children to universities that they’ll become indoctrinated.

“It used 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.”
