On the day after President Joseph Stalin Biden attacked Florida Governor Ron DeSantis during his angry COVID vaccine mandate speech, a Florida appeals court sided with the Florida governor over his mask mandate ban by putting a hold on Leon County judge’s ruling that the governor could not enforce a ban on mandates in schools.
The thing to remember here is that Ron DeSantis, unlike leftist tyrant governors, did not force Florida children to do anything they didn’t want to do. He allowed anyone who wants to wear a mask to be able to do so. He just said that school districts could not mandate that people had to wear masks if they didn’t want to. That’s called American freedom, something that Joe Biden doesn’t understand.
The 1st District Court of Appeals agreed to a request by the state to reinstate a stay on Judge John Cooper’s ruling during objections from a gang of parents who said the move could cause “irreparable harm” to their children amid a rise of COVID-19 cases. This, even though we know children have a near zero chance of catching COVID and even less of dying from it.
This ruling means that the state can enforce the rule that school districts can not mandate children wear masks for up to eight hours a day.
Last month, Cooper ruled that the state couldn’t penalize school districts that force strict mask mandates if they demonstrate that their policy is “reasonable” and necessary to achieve a “compelling state interest.”
In Cooper’s ruling, he said that DeSantis overreached when he issued an executive order in late July directing the Florida Department of Education and the Florida Department of Health to issue emergency rules, giving parents a choice on whether their children should wear masks in class.
How come leftist judges always rule against people of power who are doing things to enhance liberty and freedom and never against people of power who wish to enforce their own win on people regardless of why?
“Upon our review of the trial court’s final judgment and the operative pleadings, we have serious doubts about standing, jurisdiction, and other threshold matters,” the order reads. “These doubts significantly militate against vacating the automatic stay, the stay should have been left in place pending appellate review.”
“We are disappointed by the ruling and will be seeking pass-through jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of Florida. With a stay in place, students, parents and teachers are back in harm’s way,” said Charles Gallagher, the leading lawyer for a group of parents suing the state over its mask mandate. These are the people who don’t understand what freedom is.
DeSantis and Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran have been fighting court battle with parents over the state’s mask orders while a number of school districts have imposed mask mandates in violation of DeSantis’s order.
Thirteen school districts in Florida out of 67 now have strict mask requirements in violation of the state’s order. In response, and after a fair warning, the state began to withhold funds equivalent to the monthly salaries of school board members in Broward and Alachua counties and began investigating others for non-compliance of the masking order. That’s what President Houseplant meant when he attacked the Florida governor in his Thursday night angry COVID mandate speech and said that the federal government would make up the lost wages of Florida school board members for disobeying the law. The chief law enforcement officer in the country encouraged school officials to break the law.
On Thursday, Houseplant’s administration announced a new grant created to cover any fines or withholding of funds that school districts face because of state mask rules.
For four years under the Trump administration, the leftists suddenly discovered states’ rights and used the concept to attack former President Donald Trump. Now, with Joseph Stalin Biden in the White House, they forgot all about states’ rights and they want the federal government to assist them in breaking state laws.
Here’s DeSantis standing up to tyranny for the people of Florida.
DeSavage just ended Biden.
This is not even fair.

The lesson here is when you stand up to tyranny it crumbles, and having Biden threaten you isn’t all that frightening. Just ask the Taliban.
