DeSantis Signs Bill Requiring Students to Learn About the Evils of Totalitarianism and Communism

People Whining About DeSantis Online.

DeSantis said this about the bill:

"The bill also expands our previous efforts in civics to add a requirement for the high school government class that students receive instruction on the evils of communism and totalitarian etiologies. We have a number of people in Florida, particularly southern Florida, who've escaped totalitarian regimes, who've escaped communist dictatorships to be able to come to America.

We want all students to understand the difference, why would somebody flee across shark infested waters say, leaving from Cuba to come to southern Florida? Why would somebody leave a place like Vietnam? Why would people leave these countries and risk their life to be able to come here? It's important that students understand that. Now as part of this bill, Florida will create a 'Portraits in Patriotism' library so students can learn about real patriots who came to this country after seeing the horrors of these communist regimes."

DeSantis signed three bills, one which requires schools to focus on the Bill of Rights using personal stories of those who fled communism to illustrate the need for human rights. Another creates a standard of civics education.

The third bill requires colleges to annually assess the freedom of speech on their campuses, to make certain that ideas can be shared and are not censored.

The typical "True Conservatives" will whine some pseudolibertarian horseshit about teachers' rights to indoctrinate our children being inviolable, and claiming that the state should not interfere with curricula.

Notice this pseudolibertarian urge is never around when leftwing bureaucrats are imposing socialist, racist indoctrination on children.

Also notice that while defenders of CRT like David French and other "True Conservatives" insist that children -- especially white ones -- be taught and re-taught and over-taught the historical evils of whites, they suddenly lose their zeal for teaching about historical evils when it comes to the historical evils of their new bestest friends on the socialist left.

CNN needs a new shtick. They got their way: Trump is gone. Trump told them, flatly and repeatedly, that once they got their way then their ratings would tank, they'd be a bigger laughing stock than they were before, and people would decreasingly care about anything they have to say.

77 These sensible if obvious policies do face a dubious future, against the inertia of a thoroughly degraded and Gleichschaltung-poisoned "education" "system". As noted by someone else above - who thinks that the ocean of pretty much poorly educated, multi-degreed, vastly overpaid unionized teachers, whose "politics" are those of a particularly dumb young person, frozen forever, will implement such policies faithfully?

Or that the parents who put masks on their kids, have allowed their kids to be propagandized for decades, and vote for every additional small ocean of money to be wasted on "education" when it comes along, will help enforce them?

94 CSPAN has that "Reel America" program on one of its channels. The other day, they played the news footage of JFK's reception at the Brandenburg Gate and his "I'm a Berliner" speech. It was frighteningly apropos to what's going on in America today.

"There are many people in the world who really don't understand, or say they don't, what is the great issue between the free world and the Communist world. Let them come to Berlin. There are some who say that communism is the wave of the future. Let them come to Berlin. And there are some who say in Europe and elsewhere we can work with the Communists. Let them come to Berlin. And there are even a few who say that it is true that communism is an evil system, but it permits us to make economic progress. Lass' sie nach Berlin kommen. Let them come to Berlin."

==============================
They tried that wedge when Trump was in office; how he disliked Jared, (reading between the lines: b/c he's A JEW!!!). This was not long before the Abraham Accords began coming to fruition, largely b/c of Jared's quiet diplomacy. Another huge reason why the left had to take Trump out: The entire uni-party has far, FAR too much invested in ongoing conflict in the M.E. To quote a one trick pony face: "There will be no peace in the Middle East without a two state solution."
Trump blew that meme to hell.
And he will never be rewarded, or forgiven for that matter.

122 This is back to the future for me. Graduated from HS in Florida in 1985. Civics was a required course as well as a course entitled Americanism vs. Communism (everyone called it AvsC). In AvsC we were taught exactly what Desantis describes, how entrepreneurial capitalism is much better than the communist alternative. Somewhere along the line, they apparently stopped doing that. Happy that future Florida students will at least get exposed to the danger of thinking communism is a viable alternative.

Big, beautiful new homes for half the going rate in the bay area, with property. On a lake. With a friggin' dock. If I want to be a bit more frugal, I can save a few hundred thousand and have a smaller place and at least an acre of land.

From last thread:
"115:But I can't tell if this is wicked smart or insanity-laced stupid, because we keep getting out-maneuvered by these people."

I think we are up against supernatural powers. In a Denzel Washington movie from years ago, the devil jumped from person to person and only he could see it. I think the devil has his willing participants, Nancy for sure is his pawn. He is moving the chess pieces. We as humans cant get out ahead if him. But God can so we just need to keep praying for protection and follow the next best step.

2. When this curriculum gets published, I suggest buying the textbook, no matter what state you are in. The textbook publishing industry publishes books specific to the biggest states: CA,TX, FL and a few others. I am particularly interested in the personal stories. That could be pretty powerful...so regarding what I just wrote, many forces will be moving against getting anything published.

No, the only way to implement it is by destroying humans. That is in its very own ideology. It's that whole "socialism is a middle step to communism" thing.

People and communism don't mix. The answer to this problem is to get rid of people. Remember, a core concept involved is that the New Socialist Man emerges, implements perfect communism and the moment that utopia is established brings about the end of history.

That New Socialist Man who will implement communism? He isn't man as we know him. He's something else. He's post-man. Communism is quite literally a millennialist death cult. When they win and finally achieve it, it will be with a different species and the old species is now dead.

263 Communism is a particular type of socialism. You take the scientific socialism of Marx and Engels and add Leninism to justify single party dictatorship, then truncate the eschatology of ever actually achieving full communism. You've got Kruzchev/Brehznev/Gorbachev/Obama statist corrupt socialism.

Might I add that most people today don't have the mental capacity to begin to grasp the intricacies and monumental repercussions of the above. To them, the ones clamoring for this thing they know nothing about, they only know their needs will be met by "Obama stash" or the like.

The insidious thing, like much of the Leftist ideology, is that it exploits a part of human nature in a small way. Humans learned to cooperate in small groups as a matter of survival ( not just family members, that is.)

That's the fundamental flaw in communism, IMO: it convolves government with economics. Economic decisions are made with political considerations in mind, rather than purely economic ones.

We have the same problem here with government interference in the economy, which guarantees misallocation of resources. Decisions get made on the basis of who has the most clout, rather than what is the best use of this resource.

To my mind, too much about Spruance, Tibbetts and the UDT at the cost of the narrative sweep. When the Battle of Samar is polished off in one page, something is wrong.

I'm not saying it's bad, I just expected something different. Though Spruance deserves a biography worthy of his accomplishments. A better admiral than Halsey in 1944-1945.

384 Hadrian, thanks. Well I'm assuming he did Samar quickly because he'd done an entire book on it already, though one could expect an author to "crib" his own work, I suppose, making it easy to do more.

Been a few years since I read it, don't recall the details you're giving about UDT/Tibbetts/Spruance. Agreed on Spruance. Actually, outside 1942 in the South Pacific - which was a crucial and enormous contribution meriting major status all by itself - Halsey was "at best" a mixed bag, possibly with a negative net balance. What served him well in the Solomons campaign didn't really work out so well later.

Pretty clear Halsey was saved by his public reputation several times, when King and Nimitz would have quickly relieved anyone else.
