Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) held a press event in Tampa on Wednesday to “set the record straight, debunking the mainstream media, unions and leftist activists’ hoax of empty library bookshelves and political theater pretending that Florida’s schools cannot teach about topics like African American History, including topics like slavery.”
The primary reason for the crackdown on inappropriate books stems from making sure no pornographic content is available to Florida students at school.
“Exposing the ‘book ban’ hoax is important because it reveals that some are attempting to use our schools for indoctrination,” said DeSantis. “In Florida, pornographic and inappropriate materials that have been snuck into our classrooms and libraries to sexualize our students violate our state education standards. Florida is the education state and that means providing students with a quality education free from sexualization and harmful materials that are not age appropriate.”
The books DeSantis was using as examples of inappropriate materials were found in 23 school districts across the state. While he was showcasing the books, local news channels who were broadcasting had to cut away due to the over sexual nature of the books.
Gov. DeSantis' press conference on the Book Ban Hoax was being live-streamed on social media and carried live by local news. The stream was CUT because the books (found in schools!) were too explicit. Sensitive Content warning on Twitter.

During the live-stream, local news stations had to cut their feeds due to the graphic nature of the books found in Florida schools.
But the left wants these books available for 10 year olds. https://t.co/wA0urBD8OJ

Of the 23 districts that reported removing materials, the most removed were tied at 19 in Duval and St. Johns Counties — not even close to a whole classroom library, DeSantis office said. Of the 175 books removed across the state, 164 (94%) were removed from media centers, and 153 (87%) were identified as pornographic, violent, or inappropriate for their grade level.
Books and courses teaching African-American history not only have not been removed from the curriculum, but it was recently expanded for Florida students.
they need to find out who approved those books for use and fire them for exposing these kids to this.
If you or i provided these books to our own children and the authorities found out about it there would be a family services issue and case opened against us.
DeSantis made the claim that he banned the books. The original number was 58, only to see 54 returned. Just as with “don’t say gay” he did nothing, the pervert teachers are still in the classroom. Now he’s admitting the books he banned are back in the classrooms. The hoax is that he has ever done anything but grab a cheep headline. If people are worried about their kids they need to teach them their selves.
They can help they’re corrupted asses from putting Democrat black entitlement anti-white racist books on the shelves to help poison the minds of young proud, happy,grateful ,American white kids and other beautiful cultures that belong in this country, and who doesn’t don’t live for a corrupted Democrat communist handout or free Obama’s cell phone for the price of selling their soul, to the Democratic Plantation slave party, these ungrateful undeserving violent coddled lazy demons will continue to wait for their next free government entitlements handouts in exchange for multiple corrupted illegal votes, cuz all chosen Democrat fake victim cultures are indoctrinated and programmed to continue living off of something they never even Deserved or earned in their generational experience, and as a matter of fact other cultures were enslaved long before these fake victim of free handouts by Democrat communist corrupted cry babies, who want to be bribed continuously to become another uneducated Democrat voting lifetime fake entitlement slave.
