WATCH: DeSantis signs bill requiring students to learn the “evils of communism and totalitarian ideologies”

Tuesday Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that he is signing a bill requiring high school students to learn about the “evils of communism and totalitarian ideologies.”

The bill also creates a library that allows students to learn about “real patriots” who escaped communism and socialism.

“We want all students to understand the difference, why would somebody flee across shark infested waters say, leaving from Cuba to come to southern Florida?” DeSantis explained. “Why would somebody leave a place like Vietnam? Why would people leave these countries and risk their life to be able to come here? It’s important that students understand that. Now as part of this bill, Florida will create a ‘Portraits in Patriotism’ library so students can learn about real patriots who came to this country after seeing the horrors of these communist regimes.”
