(TheConservativeNews.org) – The campaign against critical race theory (CRT) is starting to pick up speed across the country. Since news broke that some states were introducing legislation to ban it in schools, the controversial ideology has found itself squarely in the public eye once again. As it essentially proposes that American society is a racist conspiracy, you can see why not everyone is a fan.
One person who would definitely like to see the idea of CRT banished into obscurity is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R). On Tuesday, June 15, DeSantis appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program to discuss critical race theory, among other topics. DeSantis said Floridians “were happy to have banned” CRT and suggested the theory would only “teach kids to hate each other.”
DeSantis went on to discuss the trend of people leaving leftist states with problematic policies (such as having instruction on critical race theory in schools.) Hannity suggested that the governor might encourage immigrants to his state not to bring socialist voting records with them. DeSantis responded that many are leaving “because of those radical policies,” and would therefore not want to see them take root in Florida.
Ron DeSantis is looking more and more like a man who could launch a credible challenge for the White House every time he appears on television. His penchant for calling out liberal hypocrisy would serve him (and us) well in the White House.
