Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called out major Democrat politicians for spreading a dangerously divisive message to their constituents.
First, the Florida politician focused on the unelected Governor of New York Kathy Hochul (D) who recently told Republicans like Donald Trump to leave her state and “head down to Florida where you belong.”
“Get out of town,” Hochul added. “You don’t represent our values. You are not New Yorkers.”
Criticizing the NY governor’s comments, DeSantis said on Tuesday, “You have the governor of New York saying all Republicans need to get on a bus and leave the state and come to Florida. Who would say something so ridiculous? To say if you don’t agree with me then you don’t even have a right to be here.”

Later during his Tuesday press conference, Governor DeSantis told the press, “And now you have Biden. He’s going to say… the majority of the country that opposes his policies are somehow semi-fascist.”
The Florida Republican was referring to Biden saying last week the MAGA movement’s philosophy is “like semi-fascism.”
Biden also said “MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security,” because they are “a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace — embrace — political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.”
On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre reiterated the administration’s boldly alienating stance.
“The president thinks there’s an extremist threat to our democracy. The president has been clear as he can be on that particular piece when we talk about our democracy, when we talk about our freedoms,” Jean-Pierre said. “The way he sees it is the MAGA Republicans are the most energized part of the Republican party. This is an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights.”
Continuing, the press secretary claimed MAGA Republicans “don’t respect the rule of law” and that they are “pursuing an agenda that takes away people’s rights.”
“This is what the president said yesterday and that’s what he’s going to continue to say,” she added. “The president is not going to shy away to call out what he clearly sees is happening in this country. Again, MAGA Republicans are this extreme part of their party and that is just facts.”
The establishment’s hatred for the American people has never been so obvious and with politicians and media talking heads now openly suggesting the right wing is violent, the next false flag operation is likely around the corner.
