Ron DeSantis is one of the most successful Republican governors in the country.
With his name being put forward as a 2024 presidential candidate, the Left is now taking aim.
And now, all Hell broke loose after this top Democrat just compared DeSantis to Hitler.
There is no elected official in America that enrages the Left more than Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis is the wildly popular Governor of Florida, and he’s now being put forward as a potential 2024 presidential candidate to challenge Joe Biden for the White House.
Of course, DeSantis’ stature as a champion of conservative causes on the right has prompted a massive backlash from the Left, who not only are outraged that DeSantis refused to shut down his state during the COVID pandemic, but are terrified of him running for President in two years.
And now, they’re unleashing one of the most insane political attacks ever, with one top Democrat even going so far as to compare DeSantis to Hitler.
The New York Post reports, “Florida Agricultural Commissioner and 2022 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Nikki Fried compared Gov. Ron DeSantis to Adolf Hitler in a recent interview.
In an appearance on NPR’s Friday Roundup Podcast, Fried was asked about having previously referred to the Republican governor an “authoritarian dictator” by co-host Melissa Ross, a reporter at WJCT in Jacksonville.”
“He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people’s abilities to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books,” Fried said.
“That’s what dictators do. Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler.”
The comparisons to Hitler are not just incredibly insulting, they’re astonishingly absurd.
DeSantis’ entire term as Governor has been centered around getting the government out of the way and letting the people of his state live their lives without interference from either the state capital of Tallahassee or Washington D.C.
DeSantis even once told Joe Biden that he would stand in his way if Biden wished to impose further COVID restrictions on the rest of the country.
And for his stance against the Left’s tyrannical actions over the last two years, DeSantis is now being called a Nazi.
Of course, Fried knows that she is almost certainly going to lose the gubernatorial election to DeSantis next year, even if she manages to win the hotly contested Democrat gubernatorial primary.
But as the last remaining elected statewide Democrat in Florida, Fried’s comments are reflective of the direction the entire Democratic Party of Florida is heading.
Having lost every single gubernatorial election in Florida since 1994, and having lost the state in 2020 when Trump won Florida by what amounts to a landslide compared to previous elections in the state, Democrats like Fried know that time is running out for the party.
And as a result, they’re lashing out at DeSantis because there is little else they can do to stop him.
