The race for governorship is heating up in Florida. This race is an important race as Gov. Ron DeSantis is rumored to run for President in 2024. Many Democrats acknowledge that Charlie Crist has a nearly impossible battle. DeSantis has a lot of support.
Gov. Ron DeSantis and Charlie Crist have agreed to at least one debate. Christ expressed his eagerness to debate Ron DeSantis and hold him accountable for his radical, anti-choice, billionaire donor agenda.
The DeSantis War Room, a Twitter account dedicated to promoting Gov. Ron DeSantis’ reelection campaign, shared a video Monday of Rep. Charlie Crist equating the Republican Governor to Satan and himself to Jesus Christ.
According to the account, Charlie Crist compares himself to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Jesus Christ in less than a minute. This election is about decency and being decent to one another. It’s about being kind to everyone, Crist remarked, before referring to his Republican opponent as “DeSatan.”
“Some people call him DeSatan,” Crist told the crowd, pointing to his campaign banner and explaining how the race is “DeSatan vs. Christ.” The decision is simple. There is no doubt about that, and it’s simple: he’s bad, and we’re good, according to Crist.
Crist, who recently withdrew as the Democratic contender for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, will face DeSantis this fall.
Yesterday in Aventura, Florida, DeSantis slammed President Joe Biden’s immigration policy. He doubled down on a threat to ship undocumented migrants from Florida to Delaware before highlighting his “anti-woke” policies and how he mostly ignored federally approved pandemic standards.
DeSantis’ speech sounded more like a State of the State address than a campaign speech (he did not mention his Democratic gubernatorial opponent, Charlie Crist).
He spoke about Florida’s surge in registered Republican voters, noting that when he was elected Governor in 2018, Democrats outnumbered Republicans by about 300,000.
According to the most recent data, registered Republican voters outweigh Democratic voters by a 271,000-person edge. (According to the state elections website, Republicans have a nearly 231,000-voter advantage.)
He praised Florida’s record $22 billion surplus, which his administration revealed in June, and was supported by a yearly 24% rise in general tax receipts. The Governor ascribed a large portion of this to his COVID-19 reaction, vaccine passport prohibition, and mask mandates.
DeSantis added that Florida would remain a law-and-order state for as long as he is in office and will hold criminals and those tasked with holding them accountable. While other states, such as Illinois, are eliminating cash bail and implementing other criminal justice reforms supported by wealthy funders such as George Soros, whom DeSantis specifically mentioned, Florida would not accept such moves, he added. If you engage in rioting, looting, or mob violence in the state of Florida, don’t anticipate the Portland treatment, he stated.
In the last two years, his legislative policy has resulted in “ballot harvesting,” becoming a third-degree felony. When requesting an absentee ballot, voters must produce identification. Furthermore, the state has prohibited the widespread mailing of vote-by-mail ballots.
Hot-button cultural themes such as critical race theory and transgenderism received attention and comment from the crowd, who clapped when the Stop WOKE Act and the Parental Rights in Education Act were mentioned.
He added that irreversible sex-change operations should not be performed on persons too young to have tattoos, and the Board of Medicine will soon issue a new rule prohibiting such procedures on minors.
All of these characteristics, according to DeSantis, are signs of the “woke mind virus” spread by far-left progressives, whose perspectives he describes as “ideology run amok.”
Near the close of his speech, he reminded the audience, “The Left is playing for keeps.” This will not be an easy victory since they have so much backing from the highest levels of society. Sure, we must employ common sense, and yes, we must comprehend and (are) correct on the subjects.
However, it is becoming increasingly important that you do it while demonstrating courage under fire because if you stand up for what is right, you will be attacked by the corporate press. Big Tech may censor your speech. The opposition will slander you, but you won’t get anything done if you’re not willing to take the arrows. You must be prepared to fight and to stand, he said.
