Florida Governor Ron DeSantis obtained rock star status in the Republican Party.
Polls show DeSantis would be the frontrunner for the 2024 GOP Presidential nomination if Donald Trump chooses not to run for re-election.
And now Ron DeSantis just confessed something to Mark Levin that every conservative should know.
There is no Republican Governor in the country that took a tougher stand fighting back against Joe Biden and Dr. Fauci’s COVID police state than Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis issued executive orders and signed legislation banning vaccine passports and school mask mandates while also gutting the ability of Joe Biden to enforce a federal vaccine mandate.
Because DeSantis rejected the tyrannical lockdowns and mandates, the corporate-controlled media waged a year-long smear campaign against him with fake news stories about how he supposedly allowed seasonal surges of COVID cases by not forcing Floridians to wear masks and submit to forced vaccination.
The fact that Blue States that locked down and imposed mask mandates also experienced seasonal surges, showed that the media’s hyper focus on Florida case counts was a politically-motivated scheme to take out a Republican the media feared could defeat Joe Biden or Kamala Harris in 2024.
Establishment Republicans back down in the face of negative media coverage and adopt the policies and the rhetoric of the Left in order to get the press to back off.
But in an interview with Mark Levin, Governor DeSantis embraced the media smear campaign, saying he viewed it as positive feedback that he was fighting for a conservative agenda.
“When you’re over the target, they are going to come at you,” DeSantis stated. “I view it as positive feedback. If the corporate press nationally isn’t attacking me, then I’m probably not doing my job. So, the fact they are attacking me is a good indication that, you know what, I’m tackling the big issues. We’re going after Critical Race Theory. We’re fighting back against Biden’s mandates, we’re fighting back against the illegal immigration — all those things that a vast majority of Floridians and Americans want to see done, but that does threaten the ruling class and the regime. And so, when you stand up in this day and age that we’re in, when you’re speaking the truth, those folks do not want that to get out, and so they are going to throw arrows at you.”
DeSantis added that the lesson he took from the press smearing him with lies and conspiracy theories was that if you picked the right fights, the Fake News Media was sure to attack you.
But DeSantis added that if Republicans would stand their ground and fight back, they could win even with the media totally aligned against them.
“But I think what we have been able to show is if you stand your ground, if you lead, if you don’t back down and just stand for the right things, there is a groundswell of folks who will have your back, and that ultimately is what it is all about,” DeSantis added.
