DeSantis Signs Legislation Establishing ‘Victims of Communism Day’ (WATCH)


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation on Monday that establishes November 7th as ‘Victims of Communism Day.’

The bill honors those who have suffered under communism and reminds people of the destruction communism has caused worldwide, including a death toll exceeding 100 million.

DeSantis affirmed Florida’s commitment to tell the truth about communism.


The Hill reported:

DeSantis also announced at the bill signing that he plans to approve $25 million in state funding for the preservation of the Freedom Tower, a historic landmark for the state’s Cuban community, NBC’s Miami affiliate reported.

Florida Lt. Gov. Jeannette Núñez (R) said at the news conference that the bill was in line with efforts to remove critical race theory teachings and other “woke terms” in the classroom. Critical race theory is an academic framework used at the graduate level that analyzes U.S. history and institutions through the lens of racism.

“Throughout this country, we are seeing communism and socialism being romanticized,” she said at a press conference. “Positive attitudes are at an all time high in this country. But not here in Florida, because freedom, not Marxism, has a home here in the free state of Florida.”

Núñez added the legislation would “not only teach our children but their children’s children, the importance of freedom, the terrible tyranny of communism, making sure that November 7, they will all understand what has happened throughout this globe throughout history.”
