WATCH: Gov. DeSantis Compares School Reopening to the Killing of Osama bin Laden

With anxious parents around the state of Florida debating whether or not to send their children back to school in the next few weeks, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) shared a metaphor which is unlikely to provide much reassurance.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, the Florida governor relayed comments made to him by Martin County Superintendent Laurie Gaylord.

“She viewed reopening her schools as a mission akin to a Navy SEAL operation,” DeSantis said. “Just as the SEALs surmounted obstacles to bring Osama bin Laden to justice, so too would the Martin County School system find a way to provide parents with a meaningful choice of in-person instruction or continued distance learning.”

The remark drew heavy criticism and mockery:

There is more at the link above.   Remember DeSantis has threatened to withhold state education funds from any school district that doesn’t offer in person classroom schooling.    Again this is all about getting the parents back to work so the state can get money and the stock market can stay high.    It is all getting the kids out of the house to free the parents up to be the good slave labor the economy needs with the hope that once people start going back to their jobs ( even though there are no jobs to go back to ) then everything will magically return to the old normal.  That is also why the state is hiding and down playing the real Covid virus cases and hospitalizations.    Hugs

    Really, governor? Maybe Trump should have said back in January or February, wearing masks is like a Navy Seals mission to kill Osama Bin Laden. Maybe more supporters would be wearing masks and 163,000 plus would not have died. Yet, instead the president naysayed it, called it a hoax as late as February 27, 2020, ironically the night of the first official US COVID death.

      Hello Keith. The soldiers that went after Bin Laden had all the supplies, training , and funding they could want to accomplish their mission. Teachers do not have any of those things. Talk about suicide missions. Hugs
