Often, an announcement of death will be nothing short of devastating.
This death announcement, however, has people celebrating.
According to Ron DeSantis, the state of Florida is "where woke goes to die."
Based on the crowd's response to the remarks, you would have just thought he was announcing the end of a world war. They were thrilled. But the fact of the matter is that you would be too if you were just told you no longer had to live under the oppressive thumb of the deep state liberals. DeSantis declared:
They have harmed education by subordinating the interests of students and parents to partisan interest groups. They have imposed medical authoritarianism in the guise of pandemic mandates and restrictions that lack a scientific basis. This bizarre but prevalent ideology that permeates these policy measures purports to act in the name of justice for the marginalized, but it frowns upon American institutions and rejects merit and achievement and advocates identity essentialism.
The governor continued, saying, "We reject this woke ideology. We seek normalcy, not philosophical lunacy. We will not allow reality, facts, and truth to become optional. We will never surrender to the world mob. Florida is where woke goes to die," the governor continued to wild applause.
If Ron has is way, Florida will continue to be a refuge for common sense for quite some time:
In captaining the ship of state, we choose to navigate the boisterous sea of liberty rather than cower in the calm docks of despotism. We will be on our guard. We will stand firm in the faith. We will be courageous. We will be strong. And we thank God and are proud to be citizens of the great free state of Florida.
