    Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis slammed the legacy media during a press conference Thursday about his new legislative push taking action against illegal immigration amid President Joe Biden's ongoing crisis at the southern border.

    DeSantis specifically took aim at the hypocrisy of media organizations who complained about the events of January 6, 2021, but have ignored when left-wing protests interfere with legislative actions in government facilities.

    DeSantis' remarks came in response to a report about changes that are happening at the Florida Capitol that will reportedly modify who is allowed to hold demonstrations on the grounds.

    DeSantis said that the rule change did not come from him and that he was not involved in the decision.

    "I would imagine that it's just, you go there, and you speak your mind, great," DeSantis said, "but you'll have some groups that will try to take over capitals like we've seen in other state capitals."

    "And, you know, it's interesting, if they're doing that from the Left, then the media says, 'that's democracy in action,'" he continued. "They don't say it's an 'insurrection' if you take over a capital because of that, but I think that's what it's getting to."


    DeSantis also took aim at false claims that are being peddled by the media about Florida's education policies, specifically "media lies" about his decision to ban Critical Race Theory and gender theory in Florida A.P. African America Studies.

    "You have the reporter saying that 'Governor DeSantis does not want students to learn about slavery and its aftermath,'" DeSantis said. "Well if you actually looked at what our standards are, not only is it not prohibited to teach that, it's required to teach that."

    "We are required to teach all aspects of black history, not queer theory, but actual aspects of black history. ... They are lying to you," DeSantis added.

    The governor said that the media is lying to people to "try to create a narrative" because they have an agenda that they are trying to push for political reasons.


Considering the renewed and unequalled dishonesty in elected politicians, at all levels of governing, and their associative nefarious bureaucrats doing their corrupt bidding: What is your opinion of YOUR government, and what do you intend to do about it?
  Today's overall government is just fine, and I will continue to vote for politicians that make promises to suit my individual needs.
  Today's overall government is poor, but I will continue to endeavor to learn what is true from the the most honest of media, and pick those representatives that best represent what is good and decent.
  I spend quite a bit of time on Eastern NC NOW; so ... I am having a far easier time separating the proverbial "wheat from the chaff" in finding honorable citizens to support.
