Florida Governor Ron DeSantis shredded pro-lockdown liberals during a speech Wednesday in which he claimed that his state had chosen ‘freedom over Fauci-ism.’

As Fox News reports:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gave a wide-ranging speech on Wednesday in which he emphasized to social conservatives the need to combat “smear” campaigns and touted his stance against lockdowns during the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking during a religious liberty summit hosted by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), he argued that politicians need to do more than embrace a checklist of conservative positions. He said they should “have the backbone and the wherewithal to be willing to stand for those right things when the going gets tough, when the lights get hot, when people are throwing stuff at you and are trying to smear you. That is really where I think the rubber meets the road.”

ADF is a conservative law firm known for bringing high-profile religious liberty cases before the Supreme Court, including the controversy over a Christian florist who refused to serve a same-sex wedding ceremony.

As the Supreme Court ended its term, it declined to hear that case and prompted disappointment among some. Although conservatives saw some wins in the court’s most recent term, many have also criticized the court for not going further in championing religious ‘liberty – something DeSantis echoed in his speech.

DeSantis has seen his star rise in recent months as more and more Republicans notice his bold leadership style and refusal to bow down the radical left.

I think DeSantis should run for president, on his own ticket. What he done Florida, he would do for the United States. Show China that they can’t take us over, like it is now. With sleepy Joe.

not china per say it is thw super rich that are running things as they have bought everything politicians, media, school administrators, the alphebet soup of govt agencies, big tech (although some of big tech are the suoer rich) and you ar ecorrect China is a part of it I think it os these super rich that are the ones who think they are God, soros has said this and I believe it was in that 60 mins interview that they have edited out parts. I know they edited out the part where soros says his time with his mentor in nazi Germany, who took him on rounds to confiscate the jewish wealth was the best time of his life. He is one nazi that should have been hung when other nazis were hung for war crimes, well some, all except the ones that would be helpful to the west , i.e., the US.
