Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a new state law that requires public schools to teach children about the evils of communism to counter the left-wing garbage that liberal teachers are pushing.
“The bill also expands our previous efforts in civics to add a requirement to the high school government class that the students receive instruction on the evils of communism and totalitarian ideologies,” DeSantis said this week.
“We have a number of people in Florida, particularly southern Florida, who have escaped totalitarian regimes, who have escaped communist dictatorships to be able to come to America. We want all students to understand the difference,” he added.
“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? It’s important for students to understand that,” the gov. said.
The gov. also said that people who battled communism will be honored.
“Florida will create a portraits-in-patriotism library so students can learn about real patriots who came to this country after seeing the horrors of these communist regimes,” he said.
