DeSantis just won’t quit. As Brandon and his Administration struggle under the weight of his failures and past, poor decisions, DeSantis is upping the ante in the fight between red states and a woke federal government by working with the Florida legislature to encode the protections against Covid tyranny that Floridians were blessed by during the pandemic.
Announcing that fight for sovereignty and highlighting how the Biden Administration’s fight for continuing Covid tyranny makes encoding the protections all the more important in a recent speech, DeSantis said:
“And even today, Biden and his lawyers at the Department of Justice, were in federal court in Miami, trying to get reimposed the mask mandate for airline passengers, which a district judge had struck down last year. Even after all of this, they still want to put you back in masks when you fly on a commercial airline.
“And so. And so we were in a situation where these reforms were great. They were important. We were really leading the way, the legislature decided at the time to make them in place for I think about two years.
“And so they’re due to expire on July 1 of 2023. Now, you know, at the time, if you would have told me, hey, they’re expiring, that may be a problem. I just said, well, two years from now, we’re going to be no one’s going to want to be doing really, I mean, we should be fine.
“But I think what we’re seeing is some of these people just won’t quit. They’ve imposed that or mask mandates on schoolchildren in some of these enclaves throughout the United States, you still have universities that are forcing the students to get these booster shots, even though there have been studies showing they’re at more risk from negative effects of the shot than they are from COVID itself at that age.
“And so this is just nuts that we’re still doing this. And so we believe that there’s no turning back from our direction we need to continue to lead and we need to lead with this.
“We need to lead with this by making all of these protections permanent in Florida statute which we are going to do in the upcoming legislative session.”
Opinions in the comments on the above video were mixed. One commenter, for example, cheered DeSantis and said he should be the president, saying “Somebody please, get this man a Presidency!” Another called on their governor to start acting like DeSantis, saying “@GovBillLee Please do the same for us in the great state of Tennessee.”
But, on the other side of things, one commenter suggested that The Swamp is letting DeSantis do well as a way of pushing the old regime back into power, saying “Ron DeSantis is doing good but I fear they’re letting him do good and making a utopia out of Florida in order for the Bush dynasty to slowly put the sheep’s clothing back on. He is a Yale boy Kappa Delta epsilon bush dynasty don’t believe me look it up.”
