Penthouse Man Of The Moment: Ron Desantis
Ron Desantis Is Winning The Culture Wars, Florida Style.
There's governing Florida, and then there’s governing Florida like Ron DeSantis.
In a political climate where you can be cancelled for looking at someone the wrong way, or have your career voided for putting the wrong pronouns in your bio, how refreshing it is to see a leader actually have the courage to lead.
Republican governor Ron DeSantis recently signed a wide-ranging education bill that’s a screaming f**k you to the culture wars.
The bill included banning transgender female athletes from competing on high-school girls’ and college women’s sports teams.
“In Florida, girls are going to play girls’ sports, boys and going to play boys’ sports,” he said.
To anyone sane, of course, this is just plain-speaking common sense. To woke morons who have tied themselves in knots over what gender a boy born with a penis is, it’s mental gymnastics with no winner and no award in sight.
The only way to compete in the raging culture wars at this point is to proudly speak sense to lunacy.
DeSantis said he would continue to stand up to corporations and power-mad groups and not let them dictate policies in the state.
For every clown who slammed him online as being a transphobic bigot, there’s an army of people who are sick of the way society is going, quietly cheering him on.
He’s unashamedly fiscally conservative, and is not afraid to enforce what is right, while explaining in plain English why
Rather than taking a brief pause to take a bow, DeSantis threw himself into more wrangling to reopen the cruise industry, which has been obliterated by the COVID-19 pandemic, and banned business from requiring customers to show proof of their vaccination status.
He also banned cities and counties from collecting fines from facemask mandates.
Critics say DeSantis is playing politics and making decisions based on a compulsion to pander to his master, Donald Trump.
We say, thank god for good governance.
If you choose to dress your children in red ‘Make America Great Again’ jumpers, as DeSantis did during Trump’s 2017 campaign, you can Force-Guantanamo, working directly with detainees, before going on to be assigned to SEAL Team One and being deployed to Iraq. Then, the US Department of Justice appointed him to serve as an Assistant US Attorney in Florida.
He stands for transparency, strong borders in terms of illegal immigration, he’s unashamedly fiscally conservative, and is not afraid to enforce what is right, while explaining in plain English why.
He has said he would implement a medical marijuana program, has stood up for giving veterans access to medical marijuana if recommended by their doctor, and believes people with concealed weapons permits should be allowed to openly carry firearms.
In 2013, he signed a pledge promising to vote against any global warming legislation that would raise taxes and is a founding member of the Freedom Caucus, a group of congressional conservatives and libertarians.
Basically, DeSantis is the opposite of everything Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews stands for, which swiftly earns him the Penthouse crown for being man of the moment.
