Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has asserted that there is no basis for saying systemic racism exists in the United States, dismissing the idea as “a pile of horse manure.”
Being interviewed on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” on Thursday, DeSantis disputed the idea of alleged systemic racism being attempted by leftists and progressive Democrats, saying that Florida is banning the “Marxist ideology” of critical race theory in public schools.
Daily Caller reproduced on its Twitter account when DeSantis responded to the journalist when she asked him about the idea that the U.S. is a systemically racist country.

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says that the idea of ‘systemic racism’ is a bunch of ‘horse manure’: ‘It’s a very harmful ideology, and I would say really a race-based version of a Marxist-type ideology.’”
DeSantis argued his position on the racism fallacy, recalling that the United States has provided more opportunities for all types of people than any other country in the history of the world.
He added: “And it doesn’t matter where you trace their ancestry. We’ve had all kinds of people who have been able to be very successful.”
Regarding the critical race theory, precisely the current that seeks to impose the idea that there is systemic racism in the United States, DeSantis described it as a “very harmful ideology” and assured that under no point of view will the taxes of Florida citizens be used to finance those type of ideals.
“In Florida we want to treat people as individuals, not as members of groups,” he said.
DeSantis thus joins the list of Patriots defending the idea that the notion of racism is being used in the United States by leftist globalist groups to destroy the traditional structure of the country, making people believe, especially children, that the foundations of the country are based on repression and discrimination instead of freedom, inclusion, and progress, as it really is.
“Anti-American and racist theories, such as Critical Race Theory (CRT), teach students to distrust and even hate their country and fellow citizens,” says the bill introduced by Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton, which seeks to prohibit the military from being indoctrinated with so-called ‘critical race theory.’
Paradoxically, the premises of CRT are extremely racist and divisive towards whites, because by believing in them the end result can only be that whites are hated, punished and enslaved to ‘pay’ for what happened almost a century ago, no matter what kind of people they are today.
