Earlier this week, Florida Governor and presumptive 2024 GOP presidential contender Ron DeSantis announced that he’s written a new book, “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival.”
Florida has led the nation in enacting a bold agenda that protects freedom and, in the process, has provided a blueprint for others to follow. I wrote about the Florida model in a new book which you can check out at https://t.co/qKih6bOzB6.

🚨NEW: Gov. Ron DeSantis to launch new book ‘The Courage to be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival’ in February 2023
“This book is a winning blueprint for patriots across the country. And it is a rallying cry for every American who wishes to preserve our liberties.”

And now, the Resistance is reading through the lines and realizing that Ron DeSantis is an even bigger hypocrite than they thought he was. Because, you see, he’s promoting a new book that he’s written … after having banned a bunch of books!
Instead of paying its own @hcpunion workers a living wage, Harper Collins just paid (a surely eye-watering amount of money) to help fascist book burner Ron DeSantis boost his image before he runs for president in 2024. https://t.co/kwxw5W8m0f

Ron DeSantis, who has led a statewide effort to ban books, is writing a book called “The Courage to be Free.” This is not a joke

Actually, Daniel, not only is it a joke, but it’s a bald-faced lie.
They are not “banned”, you simpletons. https://t.co/WfwdEW3ZjU

“Banned.” They keep using that word. We do not think it means what they think it means.
First of all:

What books are banned? Who banned them?

Which books has the State of Florida banned?
— Paul B. Kelly (@ImInSTL) November 30, 2022
None. Anyone in FL can order whatever books they want. Public schools cannot have sexually explicit instruction or pornography accessible to young children

Yep. And on that note:
Making sure sex isn’t pushed on kids is not the same as banning books.

Not stocking a public school library with pornograpbic and explicit materials isn’t banning books Skippy.

It’s really not. Like, not even a little bit.

This is past the point of being just creepy. It’s just downright perverted.
You do realize you’re advocating for five year olds to learn about how to have sex right and see pictures of it without parental consent, right?

Of course they do. They just don’t care.
