DeSantis calls systemic racism ‘a bunch of horse manure’

Published

Florida Gov Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted the concept of systemic racism in a Friday town hall with Fox News. He called the idea “horse manure” and said America has more opportunities than any other country.

“Well it’s a bunch of horse manure,” DeSantis said, “I mean, give me a break. This country has had more opportunity for more people than any country in the history of the world and it doesn’t matter where you trace your ancestry from. We’ve had people who have been able to succeed and all.”

The governor tore into Critical Race Theory and questioned how a society can stand if the people subscribe to that line of thinking.

“And here’s the problem with things like critical race theory that they’re peddling,” DeSantis said. “They’re basically saying that all our institutions are bankrupt, and they’re illegitimate, okay so how do you have a society if everything in your society is illegitimate.”

DeSantis had led the fight against this growing ideology, having banned it a month ago in his state.

“So it’s a very harmful ideology and I would say really a race-based version of a Marxist-type ideology,” he said. “So we’ve banned it in our schools here in Florida, and we’re not going to put any tax dollars to critical race theory. And we want to treat people as individuals and not as members of groups.”

White House Confirms It Is Looking Into Shutting Down Oil Pipeline Amid Fuel Crisis

Gas Pipeline

The Biden administration confirmed that it is considering shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan despite the ongoing fuel crisis in the country.

“Revoking the permits for the [Line 5] pipeline that delivers oil from western Canada across Wisconsin, the Great Lakes and Michigan and into Ontario, would please environmentalists who have urged the White House to block fossil fuel infrastructure, but it would aggravate a rift with Canada and could exacerbate a spike in energy prices that Republicans are already using as a political weapon,” Politico Pro reported. “Killing a pipeline while U.S. gasoline prices are the highest in years could be political poison for Biden, who has seen his approval rating crash in recent months.”

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked about the report during Monday’s press briefing, asking, “why is the administration now considering shutting down the Line 5 pipeline from Canada to Michigan?”

“So, Peter, that is inaccurate,” Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed. “That is not right. So, any reporting indicating that some decision has been made, again, is not accurate. … So, again, I would — it is inaccurate what you just stated, but —”

“What’s inaccurate?” Doocy asked.

“The reporting about us wanting to shut down the Line 5,” Jean-Pierre said.

“I didn’t say ‘wanting.’  I said, is it being studied right now?  Is the administration studying the impact of shutting down the Line 5?”

“Yeah. Yes, we are. We are,” Jean-Pierre admitted.

 

The news comes as gas prices have reached their highest since 2014, when Biden was vice president, and are currently about 50% higher than they were when Biden entered office.
