Ron DeSantis is near the top of Democrats’ enemies list.
He’s followed Donald Trump’s lead and hit back in the culture war.
And DeSantis just infuriated the “woke” Left with one declaration.
The debate over transgenderism has heated up, and the Left are losing.
The majority of Americans do not believe that a man can become a woman and vice-versa, which is why the Left are exerting so much top-down control in order to push their worldview on the public.
A recent example involves University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, who “transitioned” and competed on the women’s swim team as a senior.
The corporate-controlled press is attempting to make all of society believe that biological males have no advantage over females in athletic competitions.
Thomas dominated the field in the recent NCAA championship swim meet, but Governor Ron DeSantis acknowledged second-place finisher Emma Weyant, a Florida native, as the true NCAA champion.
“By allowing men to compete in women’s sports, the NCAA is destroying opportunities for women, making a mockery of its championships, and perpetuating a fraud. In Florida, we reject these lies and recognize Sarasota’s Emma Weyant as the best women’s swimmer in the 500y freestyle.”

Many progressive women have found themselves on the side of conservatives on this particular issue because the far-Left has even drifted away from the second-wave feminists.
Tennis legend Martina Navratilova said that Thomas should have an “asterisk” in the record book.
Harry Potter author JK Rowling has been slandered endlessly by the far-left for stating that “biological sex is real” and a man cannot become a woman.
Feminists at the Women’s Liberation Front (WOLF) tried to have a public discussion about the transgender issues, and only the conservative Heritage Foundation would platform them; leftist organizations were either too scared or in league with the transgender lobby.
DeSantis is inviting more slings and arrows from the Left.
He’s recently been smeared for promoting the Parent Rights in Education bill, which was mischaracterized by liberals as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill even though the word gay does not appear in the text anywhere at all.
The bill simply prohibits public schools from having classroom discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
In other words, activist teachers are prohibited from classroom lectures on radical gender theory when it comes to eight-year-olds and under.
Over 60-percent of Americans agree with the bill, which is why the Left have to lie and censor to change public perception.
