Recently, a small group of what must amount to the seven or so real Nazis in America and the undercover FBI agents that keep their organizations running held two, small rallies in Florida.
Taking place in Orlando and Orange County, the rallies weren’t exactly Nuremberg 2.0; rally, they were an example of a few detestable people rallying around a destable cause. As you can see, it was just a few people:
"The Jew is the devil"
"Jews rape children and drink their blood"
"Jews brought slaves here"
A horrific antisemitic, anti-black rally is happening right now in Orlando, FL orchestrated by white supremacist Eddie McBride and his group NSM

Predictably, the leftist media freaked out when DeSantis didn’t immediately focus upon a dozen or so people yelling about something in Orlando. The Miami Herald editorial board, for instance, said:
“Denounce the Nazi demonstrators in Orlando, Gov. Ron DeSantis.
It’s that simple. Say they are abhorrent. Say they are despicable. Say they have no part in this society or this state.”
As if DeSantis has done a single thing to indicate that he’s pro-Nazi. The accusation is absurd, and, like the “denounce white supremacy” card the leftist media would constantly use on Trump, just a smear meant to get people to associate him with detestable people. It’s an obvious tactic, and one DeSantis wasn’t falling for.
Instead of playing there game and engaging in ritual self-flagellation because they demanded it, DeSantis went on the offensive, blasting the media and defending his record brilliantly.
He began by slamming those that are trying to use an incident completely unrelated to his governorship for political gain, saying:
“So what I’m going to say is these people, these Democrats who are trying to use this as some type of political issue to try to smear me as if I had something with to do that, we’re not playing their game.
You know, some jacka**es doing this on the street. First of all, state law enforcement is going to hold them accountable because they were doing stuff on the overpass. So they’re going to absolutely do that. And they should do that.”
Then, after showing that he understood just what they were doing by trying to connect him with the Nazi rally, DeSantis went on the offensive against the Democrats and their allies, comparing their record of anti-Semitism with his record of pro-Israel, pro-Jewish policies, saying:
But I’m not going to have people try to smear me that belong to a political party that has elevated anti-Semites to the halls of Congress like [Minnesota U.S. Rep.] Ilhan Omar, that have played footsie with the BDS [Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions] movement, that even had people in their party that have cavorted with Farrakhan.
No, we’re going to take our record in Florida and what we’ve done, [including] sign the strongest antisemitism bill in the country. We’ve stared down companies who were indulged in BDS like Airbnb. And we’ve won.
We’ve provided record funding for Jewish day schools. And we’ve had the strongest relationship between Florida and Israel than we ever had in terms of education, business, all these tremendous things that have happened since our since our state visit in 2019.
Next, he took a hammer to their whole strategy, exposing it as a sickeningly obvious and opportunistic attempt to try to distract people from Brandon’s failures, especially the border crisis:
And so they try to play games to try to politicize, why would they do that? Why would they want to elevate a half dozen malcontents and try to make this an issue for political gain?
Well, because they want to distract from the failure that we’ve seen with [President] Biden, and they’re all joined at the hip, all these policies, they all support in Florida 100%. The inflation that these policies have caused, that’s absolutely killing people at the gas pump, in the grocery store, making everything we do in the economy more expensive.
You look at the disaster on the southern border, people from like 100 different countries pouring into the country illegally, hundreds of thousands of people a month. They support those policies, those are bad policies.
You look at the crime throughout the country that’s really spiraling out of control because of soft-on-crime policies. We’re not going to let that happen in Florida.
But that is something that they’re tied at the hip with. You look internationally how our country’s been humiliated, how these other problems are happening, all because of the failure of leadership.
And so that is what they’re trying to avoid, is being able to be held accountable for that. So we’re not going to let them get away with these stupid things where they’re trying to smear somebody unfairly, and I will not be smeared by them and that’s just a reality.
And oh, by the way, Florida is probably, maybe other than Israel, the number one destination for Orthodox Jews to move to if you look over the last two years, because we do it right because we have provided tremendous support. And that’s just what we’re going to continue to do in the state of Florida.”
It was a brilliant speech, one that took a hammer to the opportunistic leftists trying to smear him by associating him with the Nazis while also highlighting his excellent record and defense of the Jewish community. Watch him here:
As the saying in “Blues Brothers” goes, “everyone hates Illinois Nazis.” Well, leftist media, everyone hates Florida Nazis too, including Governor DeSantis.
