On Thursday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went on the attack and demolished claims that the United States being systematically racist and blasted critical race theory.
When asked by Laura Ingraham during a town hall if he thought America was a “systemically racist country, the Republican Governor called it “a bunch of horse manure.”
DeSantis said, “I mean, give me a break. This country has had more opportunity for more people than any country in the history of the world, and it doesn’t matter where you trace your ancestry from. We’ve had people that have been able to succeed.”
DeSantis went on to comment, “And here’s the problem with things like critical race theory that they’re peddling. They’re basically saying all our institutions are bankrupt, and they’re illegitimate.”
“Okay, so how do you have a society if everything in your society is illegitimate? So it’s a very harmful ideology, and I would say, really, a race-based version of a Marxist-type ideology. So we’ve banned it in our schools here in Florida. We’re not going to put any taxpayer dollars to critical race theory, and we want to treat people as individuals, not as members of groups.”
