At a news conference Thursday discussing his new legislative campaign to combat illegal immigration despite President Joe Biden’s continued crisis at the southern border, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis reportedly lambasted the mainstream media for its biased and false claims against him.
DeSantis especially targeted the hypocrisy of media outlets who complained about the events on January 6, 2021 but seemed utterly obliviously when left-wing rallies disrupted legislative actions in government buildings.
DeSantis’ words were in reaction to a story regarding modifications at the Florida Capitol that would allegedly affect who is authorized to stage protests on the premises.
DeSantis stated that the rule change was not initiated by him and that he was not involved in the decision-making process.
“I would imagine that it’s just, you go there, and you speak your mind, great, but you’ll have some groups that will try to take over capitals like we’ve seen in other state capitals.” he said
“And, you know, it’s interesting, if they’re doing that from the Left, then the media says, ‘that’s democracy in action,.’ They don’t say it’s an ‘insurrection’ if you take over a capital because of that, but I think that’s what it’s getting to.” he added.
