DeSantis: Disney Trying to Wreak Havoc on Our Education System, Injecting Transgender Ideology in Elementary School ‘Is Nonnegotiable for Me’
DeSANTIS: "But I can tell you, Stuart, I have 6-, 5- and 3-year-old kids at home. The idea that we are going to allow a company to come in and try to wreak havoc on our education system, injecting transgender ideology in elementary school, negating parents’ rights, that is nonnegotiable for me. We will stand up for our kids, we will stand up for our parents and, yes, they’re the granddaddy of them all when it comes to Florida politics, but I’m happy to stand in the way of that and push back. If we can’t get the education right, if we can’t agree as a society that it’s wrong to tell a second grader that they can change genders, then this country is just not going to succeed. So I see our country in decline on a variety of fronts, including in education. We’ve reversed that decline in Florida and, yes, we’ve had to stand up to Disney to do it, but that was the right thing to do and I stand by it 100%."
