JUST IN: DeSantis Signs Bill Making It Mandatory for Schools to Teach About ‘Evils of Communism’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.23.21

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed new legislation this week that requires public schools to teach children about the “evils of Communism”, an ideology that experts believe claimed the lives of between 50-100 million people in the 20th century alone.

“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.”

“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.”

DESANTIS BANS 'VAXPORTS': Florida Governor Issues Executive Order Banning Vaccine Passports

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.04.21

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued an Executive Order Friday that effectively bans businesses from requiring CoVID vaccine passports for customers hoping to frequent their establishments.

“Today I issued an executive order prohibiting the use of so-called COVID-19 vaccine passports. The Legislature is working on making permanent these protections for Floridians and I look forward to signing them into law soon,” posted the Republican on Twitter.

 

DeSantis signed a series of regulations this week that will shield local businesses from CoVID liabilities. Without the law, owners could potentially be sued by customers and employees for new infections on their premises.

“It’s completely unacceptable,” said DeSantis on so-called “Vaccine Passports.”

“You want to go to a movie theater, should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a game, a theme park? No. So we’re not supportive of that,” he added.

“Florida businesses soon won’t be able to screen customers based on whether they’ve received the COVID-19 vaccine, Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday, even as he signed a bill designed to shield companies from pandemic-related lawsuits,” reports the Orlando Sentinel.

“Can you use your concealed weapons permit and walk onto a Disney property?” asked one critic of the new law. “Can you go into the Magic Kingdom carrying your gun? No. … In Florida the law allows you to have a permit, but private property rights trump that. There’s plenty of restaurants and bars and all sorts of businesses in Florida [that state] ‘No shoes, no shirt, no service,’ because that’s their private property. How the hell is Ron DeSantis going to tell Disney that they can’t require vaccination passports should they want to do so?”

DeSANTIS BLASTS MEDIA: Your Coverage is ‘Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, It’s a Fake Narrative’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.05.21

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called-out the mainstream media over the weekend for promoting a “false narrative” over his handling of the Sunshine State’s CoVID vaccine rollout.

“What you’re saying is wrong, that’s a fake narrative. I met with all the folks in Palm Beach County, I said ‘Here are the options,’” said De Santis.

“It’s wrong, it’s wrong, it’s a fake narrative. You don’t care about the facts. I laid it out for you in a way that’s irrefutable. You’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” he added.
