Ron DeSantis is history

One of the best ways of learning is through history. I happen to find the history of our country fascinating. So, I’m sure do many of you. Evidently, though Ron DeSantis does not. Some stories are just deeply saddening to write. This is one of them.

The “Governor” of Florida — Mr. Ron DeSantis, is throwing his support whole-heartedly behind a new bill. What is this bill? Could it be to help eliminate poverty? Nope. Perhaps it helps small businesses. Nope- not that either.

The bill DeSantis is supporting has to do with History. Basically, the bill would draw a huge X through our history. This legislation would prohibit schools, businesses, anyplace — from making white Americans feel “discomfort” or distress when any sort of training about our country’s History is going on. Say goodbye to History. This bill is titled: “Individual freedom.”

“An individual should not be made to feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race.” Can you just imagine the problems this bill could cause? Can you just imagine the lawsuits?

Democrats can, which is why they’re loudly objecting to this bill. However, their objections don’t seem to bother DeSantis, who appears to be lurching further and further into lunacy.

Our History is part of us. It is what molds and shapes us, and it is a touchstone to the past. It reminds us of times gone by that we never want to go back to. Taking it away or attempting to “whitewash” is not fair to the children of the brave heroes who fought and died for our freedoms and made this country a better place.

And some history will always cause us discomfort. That is because this country has done some evil things. That can’t be denied. Apparently, though, DeSantis DOES want to deny it.


It is vitally important that we beat DeSantis this year, and it won’t be easy to do. We have to, though. We need History. The touchstones of History bind us to the past and remind us of what not to ever do again. And the consequences of losing that could be infinite.
