Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to shock the country as he pushes through legislation that counters everything Biden and the Democrats are trying to accomplish with their radical agenda.
DeSantis continues to stand firm in his conservative beliefs, from his approach to the COVID pandemic to his battle with the cruise industry over vaccine passports.
And just the other day, Ron DeSantis proved once again he will not be tossed around by woke bullies.
On June 1, DeSantis became the latest Republican Governor to sign a bill that bans biological males from competing in girls’ high school and college sports.
The irony of this bill being signed on the first day of “Pride Month” was lost on no one.
The NCAA has made it clear to other states that have passed similar legislation that they will pull all tournament games out of the state.
Ron DeSantis just does not care.
In a recent interview with Tucker Carlson, the Governor told Carlson that the NCAA attempted to pressure Florida State Legislators into dropping the bill.
Unfortunately for the NCAA, the threats just proved to make the bill sponsors and DeSantis himself more determined to pass the bill.
“I think as these bills were going through various legislatures, I remember the [National Collegiate Athletic Association] put out a statement saying 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 I said ‘Did you hear what they said?’ and he’s like, ‘Yeah and I said, ‘We’ve definitely got to get this done,'” DeSantis said in the interview.
DeSantis went on to say, “you can’t be cowed by these organizations, particularly by woke corporations from doing the right thing.”
Like so many other Governors, Ron DeSantis is trying to protect the girls that are being hurt by these “transgender-inclusive” sporting events.
The Left has gone so far to appease the LGBT mob that they are actually stripping away rights from women, which is something liberals used to champion.
Republicans across the country are looking for more elected officials like Ron DeSantis, who aren’t afraid to tell the Left no.
Big corporations have made it abundantly clear that they are loyal to the Democrat Party and the radical agenda the Party is attempting to ram through.
More politicians need to be willing to stand up to the Left even if it means losing a money-making sporting event in their state.
