Conservatives looking for the next leader to take up Donald Trump’s mantle have been repeatedly disappointed.
Very few of Trump’s most loyal lieutenants (Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley among them) have any executive experience. But there’s one man who has consistently shone as a beacon of populist sympathies mixed with competence and control.
That’s Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has quietly led Florida in the best pandemic response in the country, all the while infuriated media elites and fighting conservative battles in the best Trumpian fashion.
Now DeSantis is again showing that he understands the battles of our time, by identifying big tech censorship as the “big issue” and promising to fight it.
Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday that putting an end to “censoring conservative speech” on popular social media platforms is one of his top legislative issues this session.
Thursday, DeSantis spoke at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
“We need to really think deeply about if we are a disfavored class based on our principles, based on having conservative views, based on being a Christian, based on whatever you can say that is not favored in Silicon Valley,” DeSantis said in front of the conservative crowd.
I’m really starting to like this guy. We don’t know if Trump is interested in running for president in 2024, but what we do know is that the Trump revolution must live on in the GOP. RINO’s like Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Liz Cheney can’t be allowed to regain control.
Whether it’s Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz or Ron DeSantis, we need to make sure that we never go back to the bad old days of the Bushes, Cheneys and McCains.
