Democrats’ worries about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis grow by the day.
And there was more bad news for the left.
Ron DeSantis had one message for Joe Biden that terrified Democrats.
Joe Biden’s administration and its allies in the corporate media began prepping the country for the return of mask mandates and the imposition of forced vaccination and identification papers to prove you got the shot.
At a CNN town hall Joe Biden stated his administration would soon demand children under the age of 12 wear masks in school all day.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rejected Biden’s authoritarian and unscientific decree.
“We look forward to this upcoming year to be a normal school year, be in person and learn like normal kids,” DeSantis stated.
DeSantis declared the state of Florida would reject any federal mandate to require children to wear masks in school.
“There’s been talk about, potentially, people advocating at the federal level imposing compulsory masks on kids. We’re not doing that in Florida, okay?” DeSantis stated.
Governor DeSantis explained that children needed a normal school year, and that masking children did not follow the best science.
“We want kids to be able to be kids,” DeSantis added. “We need them to be able to breathe. It’s terribly uncomfortable for them to do it. There’s not very much science behind it.”
DeSantis continued that Florida would not ban parents from sending their children to school wearing masks, but that the state would not require mask wearing.
“I think it’s really important that — parents can obviously equip their kid to go to school however they want, but there shouldn’t be any coercive mandates on our schools,” DeSantis stated.
DeSantis questioned the benefit of students wearing masks – schools and children were not significant vectors of spread and vaccines are available for teachers – against the potential health and developmental consequences.
“At the end of the day, we got to start putting our kids first. We got to look out for their education. Is it really comfortable, is it really healthy, for them to be muzzled and have their breathing obstructed all day in school? I don’t think it is,” DeSantis exclaimed.
DeSantis pivoted to attacking a favorite target – Dr. Fauci – by describing how crazy Dr. Fauci’s demand was to make three-year-olds wear masks in school.
“I have a 3-year-old son. You’ve got people like Fauci saying he should be muzzled, that you should be throwing masks on these 3-year-old kids. It’s totally unacceptable and certainly unacceptable to have any level of government imposing that on parents and on kids,” DeSantis told the crowd in attendance.
Polls show Ron DeSantis stands as the frontrunner for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination should Donald Trump not run for office.
Republicans began rallying around Governor DeSantis after DeSantis quickly reopened Florida, never imposed a mask mandate, and effectively fought back against tyrannical health officials like Dr. Fauci and the lies from the corporate media.
Joe Biden’s administration agitating for the return of mask mandates will only serve to keep DeSantis in the national headlines and boost his 2024 prospects.
