Watch: Gov DeSantis Gives A Masterclass On How To Deal With The Woke, Calls The NCAA’s Bluff
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis just gave a masterclass on how to deal with woke culture and he called the NCAA’s bluff.
DeSantis recently signed a bill into law protecting biological girls from having to compete with males transitioning or self identifying as females in sports. Recently the NCAA threatened to not host tournaments in states that don’t allow male transgender athletes to complete with biological females.
During an appearance with Tucker Carlson, DeSantis expressed that it was the NCAA’s threat that motivated him to sign the bill.
“As these bills were going through various legislatures, I remember the NCAA put out a statement saying ‘Any state that enacts this, we’re not going to hold events there’. So I called the Speaker of the House in Florida (Chris Sprowls) and said ‘Did you hear what they said’ and he said ‘yeah’ and I said ‘we’ve definitely got to get this done,’” DeSantis said.
“You can’t be cowed by these organizations, particularly by woke corporations, from doing the right thing. If the price of having a tournament is I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida, I am much more willing to stand with the girls, and to hell with these events,” DeSantis said.
“If corporations want to come in and try to bully us around, they’re going to get nowhere,” DeSantis vowed.
In a speech DeSantis declared that his goal is to protect female athletes and isn’t going to be bullied by any woke organizations.

It appears that the NCAA has already caved to DeSantis college baseball regional tournaments will be played in Florida, Arkansas, and Mississippi and all three states protect female athletes.
