Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is set to debate Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in November. In the meantime, he appears keen to continue transforming California into the leftist antithesis of Florida.
Whereas Florida prioritized freedom over fear during the pandemic, Newsom's administration issued various mandates and all but shut down the state's economy. Whereas the Sunshine State protects children from sex-change mutilations and irreversible hormone therapies, California is now a "refuge" for those seeking confusion-affirming medical interventions. Whereas Newsom ratified a law enabling judges to keep men who prey on grade-schoolers 10 years their junior, between the ages of 14 and 17, off sex-offender registries, DeSantis signed a bill making sexual battery of a child a death penalty offense.
In his latest contrastive effort, Newsom has ensured that parental pressure and conscientious educators won't get in the way of state-approved LGBT and identitarian propaganda finding its way into the hands of 5.9 million K-12 students in over 1,000 districts throughout California.
