Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed a bill protecting women’s sports from a radical left-wing agenda.
Now certain corporations and left-leaning associations are pushing back against him.
He’s having none of it.
Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was defiant during an appearance on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Tuesday, rejecting any potential forthcoming pushback from out-of-state entities threatening punitive action against the Sunshine State for signing into law legislation that would protect women’s sports.Breitbart News
You can watch his interview with Tucker Carlson here.
Here’s an extract.
DeSantis told host Tucker Carlson you could not be “cowed” by so-called woke corporations.
“Well, it is interesting, Tucker,” he said. “I think, as these bills were going through various legislatures, I remember the NCAA putting out a statement that said any state that enacts this, we’re not going to hold events there. And so I called the Speaker of the House in Florida and said, ‘Did you hear what they said?’ He said, ‘Well, we definitely got to get this done.’ You can’t be cowed by these organizations but particularly by woke corporations from doing the right thing. So my view was throughout this whole time was we have to protect our girls. It is discriminatory to force them to compete against biological males.”
“The price of having a tournament is I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida — I am much more willing to stand with the girls and to hell with these events,” he added.Breitbart News
This is great to see from a Republican governor.
DeSantis is holding the line when it comes to social conservatism in the state of Florida.
Big business and leftist advocacy groups have grown accustomed to getting their way, thanks to RINOs and Democrats.
DeSantis is made of stronger stuff, and he isn’t caving to their pressure.
This is why it’s extremely important for as many conservatives as possible to observe the 2022 gubernatorial election in Florida, because the Deep State does not want DeSantis in power.
He actually opposes them, and that’s not something they’re used to.
It’s the same reason President Trump agitated them so much.
That’s also the reason why many Americans suspect the 2020 election wasn’t a fair contest.
The same suspicions could arise in the 2022 gubernatorial election in Florida, if patriots don’t ensure there is no funny business going on.
So let’s make sure that if DeSantis gets re-elected, which we should all campaign for, his victory is 100% confirmed!
