DeSantis On Going After The Deep State: ‘We Are Going To Start Slitting Throats On Day One’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did not mince words this week while discussing his plans for confronting the deep state should he become the next President of the United States.

    "We're going to have all of these deep state people, you know, we are going to start slitting throats on day one," DeSantis said this week at a barbecue campaign event in Rye, New Hampshire, according to The Hill.

    "You're going to see a huge, huge outcry because Washington wants to protect its own," DeSantis added.

    The remarks are similar to comments he made last month during an interview in which he was talking about staffing at the Pentagon.

    "I think the idea that you take a flag [officer] or general officer who recently retired and put them as [secretary of Defense], I think it is a mistake," DeSantis said.

    "You know, they may have to slit some throats. And it's a lot harder to do that if these are people that you've trained with in the past or that you know," DeSantis said. "So we're going to have somebody out there, you know, be very firm, very strong, but they are going to make sure that we have the best people in the best positions, and there's not going to be necessarily prior relationships that would cloud that judgment."

    DeSantis' remarks triggered left-wing federal employee unions, who claimed that his remarks were "shameful" and that it proved he "has no place in public office."

    Former President Donald Trump has also proposed slashing large numbers from the federal workforce should he return to the Oval Office.

    Recent polling from The New York Times has found that Trump and DeSantis remain by far the top two candidates in the Republican primary with no other candidates rising above 3%.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Understanding that this fragile Republic of the self-governed is in a precarious space in our nation's vast history: What is your honor bound patriotic duty in helping to sustain the continuance of these United States of America?
  I will depend on my Democratic Socialist politicians to continue to march hard toward the Left to provide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for all who think and do as they are told.
  I will defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and support all elected leaders who pledge to protect and insure the continued sovereignty of this Representative Republic.
  I am very concerned about maintaining my current life style without working. I was told that as long as I vote Democrat, I had nothing to worry about ... but now I worry.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
