Ron DeSantis transforms Florida's Education Department into his Ministry of Propaganda in stunning..

..move

It isn’t every day that a presumably non-partisan state agency issues a press release with a headline reading like this: “FLORIDA REJECTS PUBLISHERS’ ATTEMPTS TO INDOCTRINATE STUDENTS.”

But that was the choice of the taxpayer-funded Florida Department of Education (FDOE) late Friday. The release -- apparently translated from the original Russian -- announced that state authorities “found 41 percent of the submitted textbooks were impermissible with either Florida’s new standards or contained prohibited topics.”
---
“Florida has become a national leader in education under the vision and leadership of Governor DeSantis,” the press release beamed. “When it comes to education, other states continue to follow Florida’s lead as we continue to reinforce parents’ rights by focusing on providing their children with a world-class education without the fear of indoctrination or exposure to dangerous and divisive concepts in our classrooms.”

“Propaganda is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. If the means achieves the end then the means is good... the new Ministry has no other aim than to unite the nation behind the ideal of the national revolution.”
-- Joseph Goebbels

The end seems to be to make the average Floridian even stupider than they already appear.

5. DeSantis is acting like he got a 3-to-1 victory margin

In fact, his "victory," if indeed it was legit, was only 49.6% to 49.2%

He seems like he is trying to dumb Florida's voters down in case he needs to face them again.

11. I've thought the same thing!

If Repubs win by even one vote, the govern like a GD mandate is bestowed upon them. If Dems win by just one, the narrative is that Dems need to govern from the center with a “razor thin” majority.

It sucks. And I’m over it.

12. Against a relatively unknown Tallahassee mayor.

If Crist wins the nomination, and I predict he probably will, a lot of centrists like him. So, there's a pretty good chance the governor's office will be held by a Democrat soon. I hope.
