This isn't an exaggeration; it's real.
I read conservative/libertarian blogs around the web, and many of them claim it is Liberals/Democrats who want to control your lives and impose their "woke" ideology on everyone.
None of those bloggers are reporting this (I wonder why).
This should be every Libertarian's nightmare. I'm not sure about the current Trumpublicans, since it's been my observation that they eagerly embrace and admire authoritarians. This may be popular in Florida, but people in other states who cherish democracy and do NOT want some power-tripping governor telling them what to think, say, and see DO NOT embrace DeSantis's authoritarian nightmare:
What DeSantis is setting up in Florida is the very definition of an authoritarian government -- deciding what everyone under its boot should read, see, hear, and think.
It is most definitely NOT American. You can go to places like Hungary, Iran, and Afghanistan to see how DeSantis's plan for Florida will work out:
