Florida has been the epicenter of the Left-Right culture war, with Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) leading the way for conservatives nationwide, and tackling the "Woke society" head-on.  During a recent press conference in Tampa, Florida, Gov. DeSantis condemned the practice of children attending drag queen shows and told attendees about a Miami bar whose liquor license was striped over their concerning position on minors.

When asked about a video in Dallas, TX that showed children tipping drag queens, DeSantis called the practice, "totally unacceptable."  However, another video that was identified as an incident in Florida, came to the attention of Gov. DeSantis.

"Wait a minute," said Governor DeSantis about the Florida incident, adding, "Having kids involved in this is wrong.  That is not consistent with our law and policy in the state of Florida, and it is a disturbing trend in our society to try and sexualize these young people.  That is not the way you look out for our children, you protect children, you do not expose them to things that are inappropriate."

DeSantis then disclosed that the Florida state government began an investigation of the aforementioned Miami drag queen bar which uncovered some rather shocking details.  Not only were minors attending the drag queen bar display, but the bar also provided a kid's menu, which essentially demonstrated that the visitation of minors was not a freak one time incident.

DeSantis was met with boos when he claimed the bar had a kid's menu and added, "They looked under Florida law, and were able to initiate this procedure that would basically take away the liquor license for them, and that basically ends the story."

DeSantis also further hinted that this would not be the last time the state has to reign in on drag bars that endanger children if necessary.  Even in the past Florida has battled for the safety of children in the face of these displays
