While Republican Governors across the country are betraying their voters, Ron DeSantis is standing firm.
Because of his leadership, Florida is booming economically.
And Ron DeSantis just obliterated the Left with a statement they didn’t see coming.
With Dr. Anthony Fauci leading the charge, states like Florida have been attacked for ignoring coronavirus hysteria.
The State has been open, and has no mask mandate at the state level, unlike left-wing states around the country.
Because of this, they have faced relentless attacks, much from the mainstream media.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis put them on blast, calling them the “corporate media,” referring to them as “lockdowners” in an interview with Breitbart News.
“Corporate media, they are lockdowners. They supported lockdowns, and they always supported lockdowns. They obviously support blue state governors over red state governors. What Florida has done was basically completely challenge the narrative,” DeSantis said, adding that he has ignored the “talking heads on some of these cable places” and instead did “what the data was telling us to do.”
DeSantis also talked about the importance of protecting the everyday lives of residents, which involved allowing them to continue their lives as normal as possible.
“Quite frankly, it’s not just about COVID. I mean, you have a society here you have to protect. I mean, kids being in school. People being able to work. People have rights and people have freedoms and so we respected those,” DeSantis continued, explaining how coronavirus mortality has recently been adjusted in a way that, again, shows the success of Florida’s approach.
Despite all the attacks on Florida for their lax laws relating to coronavirus, they have consistently had fewer newer cases than states like New York, who the media have elevated as an example for the country to follow.
Of course, much of what was coming out of New York was a lie, considering that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was caught suppressing the publicly available case data in order to look better.
DeSantis pointed this out when looking at age-adjusted deaths due to COVID-19, noting “40 states are higher than the state of Florida for the whole pandemic,” adding that “we’re one of only a handful of states where only 100 percent of the parents have the right to send their kids to school in person.”
Florida has proven that states can re-open just fine, yet the left can’t seem to give up the lie that lockdowns are necessary.
