The short answer to the question posed in the title is No, Ron DeSantis does not want to see your child die. He doesn’t even want to know about it.
To be sure, DeSantis doesn’t care what happens to your child. He doesn’t care if your child passes COVID-19 onto someone else’s immunocompromised child or to your elderly parents.
The fact that the Delta variant of COVID-19 is more contagious than its predecessor and more deadly to children is of no concern to Ronald Dion DeSantis.
If you think about what it is that DeSantis actually cares about, the only answer that will pop out of the dark recesses of your mind will be that Ron DeSantis only cares about Ron DeSantis.
You might think that no one in their right mind would try to prevent schools from protecting their faculty, staff, students and the families of all those people from a deadly virus, but you would be wrong.
Or you would be right and Ron DeSantis is not in his right mind. Examining the evidence, it’s a tough call.
What we do know is that we’ve never seen people fight so hard for their childrens’ right to get sick and die as we are seeing today and Ron DeSantis is leading that movement.
Only DeSantis knows what his end game is, assuming he has one, but some strange things are going on down there where so many stories starting out with A Florida man… originate.
DeSantis recently signed a bill requiring Florida colleges to assess incoming students’ beliefs. A little too Orwellian for you? I should hope it is.
Under HB 233, signed by DeSantis on June 22, the Florida Board of Education will now require Florida colleges to survey students every year and assess the intellectual freedom and viewpoint diversity at each institution.
Whatever that means.
Soon after HB 233, Pennsylvania’s Republican lawmakers passed a bill to subpoena 2020 voters’ personal information. Not only that, but there is no proposal whatsoever to secure or keep private that information.
Would you even apply for a credit card if they told you that they had no intention to try to safeguard your personal information?
There’s definitely a movement afoot and we should all be aware of it.
Whether it’s phony election audits, anti-common sense, anti-science campaigns, voter suppression or collegiate thought control, democracy is under attack and they are doing nothing to disguise their efforts.
Maya Angelou famously said, When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.
The question is, Will we believe what we can see with our own eyes? The follow up is obvious: What are we willing to do about it?
