Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis warns leftist rioters to ‘stay out’ of state

Taking a strong stand against the sort of violent, destructive rioting seen in cities across the country since last summer, the Daily Wire reports that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has warned the instigators of such chaos to stay away from the Sunshine State, a stance sure to meet with the approval of former President Donald Trump.

In a press conference held last week, DeSantis emphasized his administration’s unwavering support for law enforcement, something evidenced by his April decision to sign strong anti-rioting legislation that has been characterized as among the toughest measures taken anywhere in the nation.

The Florida law boosts penalties for any protestor who blocks a roadway or defaces a public monument and creates potential liability for local officials in lawsuits filed by those injured in protests if it is determined that authorities did not take sufficient action to quell violent demonstrations, as NPR noted.

Making it crystal clear that the type of unrest that has overrun cities such as Seattle, Minneapolis, and Kenosha will not be permitted to take root on his watch, DeSantis said, “Hey, if you’re in Portland, you think you can down down to Florida and do this? Stay out of our state, we don’t want you coming down here causing problems,” according to the Daily Wire.

Emphasizing the zero-tolerance approach to rioting that now prevails in Florida, DeSantis continued, “And if anyone does cause these problems, if you try to burn something down, if you try to harm anybody – but particularly a police officer – during one of these violent assemblies, there will be consequences. They will be swift, they will be severe, and they will be such that people that see that happen will know that that’s not something we want to do going forward.”

Drawing a clear distinction between Florida’s stance on rioting and that of liberal local governments in other parts of the country, DeSantis lamented the apparent reluctance on the part of the latter to take decisive action against those causing devastation in their communities.

“I think if you look around the country, what happens is, like in Portland, these people riot every night, they go get their mug shot and then they get put right back on the street to do it again. That’s what we don’t want,” adding:

What we want to say is, you know, the difference between going out and doing First Amendment stuff, which obviously we all support, it’s part of being American. The minute you harm somebody else, or you harm somebody’s property, or you do those types of things, the only way we’re going to put a stop to it is to have very swift penalties for it.

Trump, also a Florida resident, has long voiced his support for DeSantis and his policies and, according to Politico, said late last month that he would “certainly” consider tapping the young governor to be his running mate if he decides to seek the White House again in 2024, explaining, “He’s a friend of mine. I endorsed Ron, and after I endorsed him, he took off like a rocket ship. He’s done a great job as governor.”

Considering the manner in which DeSantis’ own profile has risen so dramatically and favorably within the Republican ranks over the past year, however, it remains to be seen whether he would be content to be Trump’s number-two or if he plans to seek the Oval Office in his own right.

  8. Why can’t more governors be like Desantis of Florida??? He’s on the right track…I say Governors GROW SOME STONES and do good for your state We would not have so many problems if only other Governors would wake up and follow our Constitution

  9. I wonder what hole Cheney has her head up, I know it ain’t mine, as it was still working the last time that I used it. She said that she would not help anyone spread the “Big Lie” that there was election fraud. So I guess that she will spread the “Bigger Lie”, that there was no election fraud, to help her buddies in the DNC. I think that she will have better luck running for president as a Democrat. She would at least have the media and press on her side, if she wins the nomination that is.

  10. There is a reporter that is leaving Fox and going to CNN. They said that she would be their new space reporter. She will be giving daily updates on the space between the ears of the Lemon. These updates will be interspersed with updates on Statler and other CNN personnel with light years of space between their ears. Who is going to report on her, she is leaving FOX to Work for CNN, leaves the question of how much space is between her ears.

  11. Finally a man we can look up to!To bad there aren’t more of them in our country! Not since President Trump has there been such a man!

  12. How do we ask/beg/implore/request that Gov. Desantis send some of his gumption, knowledge and insight to our Indiana gov.? ASAP re antifa & blm? Terrorism should to be allowed or accepted in the U.S.A.!

  13. Biden is not very bright. If he noted the way Germany’s Angela Merkel governed as a result of her background as a Physical Chemist, he would be managing the presidency quite differently and successfully. The key is to manage in small reversible steps, e.g., don’t give all the money away at once; only maybe 25%. Then those who need it the most will come forward to claim it as theirs and those who need it less will not get it because there are others who need it more. After this first 25% amount is exhausted another amount can be provided; this way there will be little waste on those who don’t need it .
    Governing in this way is slower but it is more accurate in accomplishing the goals one wishes to achieve.

  14. A Trump DeSantis ticket would be perfect for the White House.
    A few months ago while listening to one of the videos I suggested a President Trump Vice president DeSantis for the White House. I was Ridiculed by one of the people that saw my statement. What do you know Missy, did I know the future!! Or not!! GOD Bless President Trump and vice President DeSantis!!😊

    1. There is one in every bunch. Simply ignore, you knew what was good.

    2. Do you really want Florida to lose DeSantis?! I’d rather see him be president with Trump advising him than in the comparatively powerless position of Vice President.

  15. Texas needs to do the same. Lock the rioters up and throw away the key.
    Saying that a rioting, looting and burning is simply a protest is a lie.
    These people are liars. Biden’s moron border czar telling the lie that the border is closed.

  16. As I have stated before in other replies Biden/Harris are clueless and lie, and I believe Biden was on the take along with his son.

    1. It was always Biden making the deals, his son Hunter was his bag boy, so that the money could not be traced to him. He used his own son to shield himself, and his son would take the fall if found out.

  17. I’m with DeSantis all the way – shoot to maim or destroy since the protestors want to do this to America !!! Enough bull is enough – obey the laws or stand the consequences !!! Florida used to be known as a party state and old folks home – that’s changed !!! The new Florida is reason enough to have the rest of the US follow their suit !!! It’s a shame these comments don’t go anywhere but to those posting comments, but, it’s good to vent !!!

  18. WE know we could depend on our Governor, because what he says goes. He is not a Chimpanzee, Gorilla or a Coyote, HE IS STRICTLY A MAN OF HIS WORD, HE SAYS WHAT HE MEANS AND MEAN WHAT HE SAYS AND if you don’t like it TOUGH. He is the King of our SUNSHINE STATE and if you don’t like how he runs it, STAY OUT.

      1. I don’t think he will, however, if they show up it’s law of the jungle. Kill or be killed, need a weapon or got one?

  19. The liberal mobs will have to test the waters, just to see how hot it is. The nation will be watching this.

    1. Every militia against antifa/blm and that ilk will be watching and if they need it we’ll be happy to give backup. That’s over 10,000 outsiders. However, we don’t want to cause trouble, just stop it.
      Did you see the video from blm yesterday? The loudest one who was saying “You gots to know” gots to know that he forgot his magazine and the rifle doesn’t work too well without it.

      1. Because it’s illegal to have a loaded firearm in downtown Portland check out the laws it’s archaic and delusional as hell like everything else is

  20. WITH THAT WARNING WH DEMOCRATS WILL PAY ANTIFA AND BLM TO GO TO FLA TO BURN ROB AND KILL AS MANY AS THEY CAN.

    1. Let them try and a VERY FERM EXAMPLE “will” be set that hopefully other states will grow a back bone and do the same…..

        1. Really bad idea. Let our governor and the police and courts handle it. Reactionary counterforce only escalates the damage done.

      1. Its time we stand up to these paid thugs. They are there to destroy and keep people in fear. The need to be stopped. Good for Governor DeSantis. He has shown he will not tolerate this disgusting attempt to over throw the government. They need to shoot to kill if they do not disburse. Get to the bottom of the money who’s paying them and then take them all down.

        1. Colleen I could not agree more and the idiot puppets will not stop their crap unless serious action is taken agains them.
