FL Gov. Ron DeSantis Fights Communism, Slams Biden’s Disinformation Board

There are an endless number of politicians who run for office promising to change the system, but then simply settle, working within the constraints put in place during decades of previous administrations.

This lack of conviction in most political leaders makes those who actually choose to serve their constituents by passing legislation for their betterment, stand out.

Instead of just joining the social media debate over Communism, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Monday blasted the Biden administration over the creation of the Disinformation Governance Board, explaining that they are attempting to “stifle dissent, to try to elevate a chosen political narrative that’s endorsed by the regime” — a move that is contrary to a “free society.” 

DeSantis made the remarks during a press conference in Miami, Florida, where he signed a bill recognizing November 7 as Communism Victims Day to “honor the more than 100 million people who have fallen victim to communist regimes across the world.”

From DeSantis’ office press release:

 Today, Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill (HB) 395, establishing November 7 as “Victims of Communism Day” to honor the hundreds of millions of people who have suffered under communist regimes across the world. The Governor also announced that he will approve $25 million in the budget to support renovations and restoration of the historic Freedom Tower in downtown Miami. Additionally, the Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 160 to approve road designations across the state, including three designations to honor brave Cubans who fought against the Castro Regime.

“We want to make sure that every year, folks in Florida, but particularly our students, will learn about the evils of communism, the dictators that have led communist regimes and the hundreds of millions of individuals who suffered and continue to suffer under the weight,” the governor said, noting that there are still people who openly promote “things like socialism and communism.”

DeSantis pointed out what the legislation represents.

“We’ve got to be willing to speak out when we see things that aren’t consistent with our values in our own country,” he said, pointing directly to recent actions of the Biden administration — namely, the creation of the Disinformation Governance Board led by radical leftist Nina Jankowicz.

“Having the federal government set up a disinformation bureau in the Department of Homeland Security is wrong,” he said. 

“What they are doing to try to stifle dissent, to try to elevate a chosen political narrative that’s endorsed by the regime and to try to marginalize dissenters,” the governor said, is “not what a free society is all about.”

DeSantis said he believes the administration will use the bureau to “feed the social media platforms with what they want to be censored and not want to be censored.”

“There is no orthodoxy that the government can impose on us. We’re able to speak, speak our mind,” he said, adding that the disinformation bureau needs to be eliminated.  

“That is a big danger to free expression in this country,” he warned. 

“We want to make sure that every year, folks in Florida, but particularly our students, will learn about the evils of communism, the dictators that have led communist regimes and the hundreds of millions of individuals who suffered and continue to suffer under the weight,” the governor said, noting that there are still people who openly promote “things like socialism and communism.”

DeSantis later stressed the importance of recognizing what the legislation represents.

DeSantis said he believes the administration will use the bureau to “feed the social media platforms with what they want to be censored and not want to be censored,” as leftists panic over the prospect of losing control of the narrative, particularly in light of Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter. 

“There is no orthodoxy that the government can impose on us. We’re able to speak, speak our mind,” he said, adding that the disinformation bureau needs to be eliminated.
