DeSantis prohibits tax dollars for woke ‘diversity, equity, inclusion’ programs in higher ed – LifeSite

SARASOTA, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed new legislation Monday banning any state or federal tax dollars from going to “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) programs at Sunshine state colleges or universities, the latest in his efforts to purge left-wing indoctrination from education.

Senate Bill 266, one of three education-related bills DeSantis signed in a ceremony at New College of Florida, also “prohibits programs, majors, minors, curriculum, and general education core courses that violate Florida law regarding prohibited discrimination or that are based on theories that systemic racism, sexism, oppression, and privilege are inherent in the institutions of the United States and were created to maintain social, political, and economic inequities,” according to the governor’s office.

With Drag Queens now targeting babies in a quest to normalize their degeneracy, it’s time for our lawmakers to ensure children in society are legally protected from this grooming.

SIGN: Drag Shows for children must be outlawed

“Burlesque for Babies” is the latest depraved iteration of the Drag Queen Story Hours that have targeted children across the western world. 

This involves woke parents taking their babies and toddlers to watch grown men, invariably wearing high-heels, make-up and little else, dance inappropriately for attention, gratification, money and grooming.

If you don’t believe us, just watch what this pro-LGBT commentator has to say (WARNING – graphic content): 

This is nothing less than grooming – an attempt by perverted men to sexualize children with erotic dancing.

SIGN & SHARE: Lawmakers must end the grooming of children by Drag Queens

How else can we describe half-naked men “twerking” in front of babies, if not by calling it “grooming”?

Aside from the degenerate men wanting to sexually perform for children, the other major culprits are of course the parents who bring their children to see them, tacitly endorsing the bondage outfits and overt perversion to allow these drag queens fulfill their sadomasochistic dreams with children. 

Any adult who wants to be naked, or close to naked, in front of children is an immediate threat to young people, which is why lawmakers must do everything to combat this degeneracy before it’s normalized.

Normalization is, of course, the goal of the LGBTQ movement, and that’s why we have to push back now.

SIGN: “Burlesque for Babies” and Drag shows for kids must be outlawed

Please SHARE this petition with as many people as possible before we send it to your politicians.

“Florida has ranked number one in higher education for seven years in a row, and by signing this legislation we are ensuring that Florida’s institutions encourage diversity of thought, civil discourse, and the pursuit of truth for generations to come,” DeSantis said, according to the New York Post. “Florida is taking a stand for empowering students, parents, and educators to focus on creating opportunities for our younger generations. I am happy to have worked with the legislature to get this important legislation signed, sealed, and delivered.”

One of the other bills, HB 931, requires state universities to establish offices responsible for hosting speakers from across the political spectrum and ends the “political filters that are increasingly used to require political statements and ideological attestations by faculty and students in hiring, promoting, and admissions.”

The new laws are the latest in DeSantis’ ongoing efforts to follow through on the promises he made in his second inaugural address to continue getting ideological proselytization out of education and more thoroughly making Florida the place “where woke goes to die.”

He has taken numerous actions to prohibit critical race theory and age-inappropriate sexual discussions from classrooms and help elect like-minded conservatives to local school boards as well as force compliance with state standards such as keeping restrooms sex-specific. Last month, he proposed legislation to impose new standards on colleges and universities pertaining to accountability, historical accuracy, and prohibiting ideological indoctrination or the enforcement of ideological conformity.

Those actions, in turn, are part of a broader conservative record that has generated substantial interest in DeSantis for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. The governor has not yet announced his candidacy but is expected to in the coming weeks, having just concluded an ambitious legislative session featuring conservative legislation on abortion, crime, transgenderism, education, and more.
