DeathSantis spokesperson says that they want to eliminate “political ideology” from public higher education. Yet Rufo is one of the most ideology driven people I have ever seen. He is a die hard far right to the point of being racist and virulently anti-LGBTQ+. Seriously he wants to roll back every social advance since 1855. Look at what DeathSantis says is a bad thing in education, he DeSantis admin plans to weed out concepts like diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and critical race theory (CRT). Hugs
Florida Politics reports:
Gov. Ron DeSantis has appointed conservative activist Christopher Rufo and five others to the New College of Florida Board of Trustees in his continuing move to eliminate “political ideology” from public higher education.
With the six new members of the school’s Board of Trustees, the DeSantis admin plans to weed out concepts like diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and critical race theory (CRT). The move comes amid low student enrollment at the New College of Florida and as DeSantis ramps up his second term.
In a statement Friday, DeSantis Communications Director Taryn Fenske said New College has been “completely captured by a political ideology that puts trendy, truth-relative concepts above learning.”

Ron DeSanctimonious is not eliminating “political ideology” but adding to it!
He’s not eliminating anything. He’s installing it. Sadly, the media will eat up his lies and regurgitate them back as facts.
in his continuing move to eliminate “political ideology” from public higher education.
By replacing it with his own political ideology.
It’s never political ideology when (R)’s push their political ideology…
Exactly! Note the things he pointed out as “political ideology” are all progressive causes. Pushing right-wing ideology is going to be fine I guess. White nationalism, anti-gay/trans propaganda, misogyny and a white-washed US history will be back on the menu boys!
Nearly every single prominent anti-gay figure has sooner or later turned out to be a closet case. Case in point this week: Matt Schlapp. They’re all working out their own internalized homophobia and self-hatred by trying to hurt other people.
And I think every single leader that the so-called “ex-gays” have had later turned out to be still totally gay. To their credit, several of them later came clean and apologized for their actions.
He’s not a ‘conservative activist.’ He’s a far right liar whose lies have led to the deaths of innocent people and will lead to more. Not might. Will.
And propagandist. He is a twister of words and a creator of hate.
Before it merged with USF in 2001, New College was the toughest Florida college to get into. It was a big deal when I was in high school. Since the merger with a public university, enrollment has plummeted to around 700.
DeSantis is telegraphing to the country what he will do nationwide if elected president.
DeathSantis isn’t going to stop until all of Florida’s public universities and colleges are Evangelical Christian schools.
