(PatrioticPost.com)- Last week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made a joke about the Cold War that sent the corporate media into a tizzy.
During a press conference last Friday, Governor DeSantis said if Democrat Stacey Abrams was elected governor, it “will be a Cold War between Florida and Georgia.” DeSantis added that he couldn’t have “Castro to my south and Abrams to my north,” saying it would be “a disaster.”
Naturally, the American corporate media lit its hair on fire over DeSantis’ remark, screeching that the firebrand Republican was comparing Stacey Abrams to Castro while invoking the term “Cold War.”
In a fit of pique, Newsweek demanded a statement from the governor’s office for his daring to use the term Cold War to describe a possible Stacey Abrams victory.
For four years, the corporate media invoked Hitler to describe Donald Trump. But Ron DeSantis uses the term “Cold War” about a possible Stacey Abrams victory is a bridge too far.
You don’t need a statement from a DeSantis spokesperson to understand what he meant.
Free Florida would be surrounded, in the south by the communists in Cuba and in the north by “progressive” Stacey Abrams. This isn’t hard.
But these are the same people who would fact-check every joke Donald Trump ever made. So it shouldn’t be surprising that they would lose their marbles over this.
DeSantis wants Georgians to reject Stacey Abrams in November’s election. He doesn’t want a neighboring state run by a Democrat who wants to turn Georgia into California. So he said he hoped Georgians would “take care of that.”
The spokesperson told Newsweek that Ron DeSantis “wants to keep Florida free and put its citizens first.”
Is it really surprising that he wants the people of Georgia to do the same in their own state?
Thus far, polling out of Georgia indicates voters aren’t too interested in becoming California.
An Emerson poll from last week shows both Governor Brian Kemp and his Republican primary challenger, former Senator David Purdue, beating Stacey Abrams. Kemp holds a 7-point lead over Abrams, 51 percent to 44 percent. Meanwhile, Purdue is leading Abrams by 5 points, 49 percent to 44 percent.
