Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Florida on Thursday, the state’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis didn’t hold back when criticizing Dr. Fauci, mainstream media and Big Tech.
Florida’s biggest “critics” and pro-lockdown Americans still come to visit the Sunshine State, DeSantis noted in the speech.
Explaining why even many liberals escape their Democrat-run states to vacation in Florida, DeSantis said, “From the very beginning, we refused to let this state descend into some type of Faucian dystopia where people’s freedoms are curtailed and their livelihoods are destroyed.”
“We protected people’s rights, we protected people’s jobs, we protected small businesses and we made sure every kid in the state of Florida had an opportunity to go to school in person five days a week,” he continued.
The governor added, “In Florida, we reject the biomedical security state which erodes liberty, harms livelihoods and divides our society. And, we not only reject it when it’s government, we have done things like ban vaccine passports and mandates, because it’s unacceptable to subcontract out Fauci-ism to big companies. So, we’ve stood for freedom across the board and the result is Florida has defeated Fauci-ism. Freedom has prevailed in the Sunshine State.”
DeSantis also targeted “wokeness” during his speech, noting it has infected almost every major institution from academia and corporate America to the bureaucracy and legacy media.
The media, the Florida governor said, is dividing the nation while propping up the Biden administration.
“They are not in the business of telling the truth, they’re in the business of spinning partisan narratives to be able to benefit their side,” he told the crowd. “They don’t speak truth to power, they’re defending the regime in power, and if you speak up, they come after you, they’ll smear you, they’ll defame you.”
DeSantis added, “All they do day after day is concoct a blizzard of lies to try to deceive the American people. And make no mistake, that’s going to intensify leading up to November. They’re going to do anything they can to take the blame off Biden and to try and fool the American people into keeping Democrats in office.”
When it comes to Big Tech, the popular Republican governor detailed how they work with mainstream media and the Biden regime to censor conservative voices or anyone else who dissents with establishment narratives.
“When you have a society that’s veering away from the truth, anybody that stands up and speaks the truth will come under fire,” DeSantis warned.
