DeSantis Rips Reporter For Trying To Compare Rise In Anti-Semitism With Islamophobia | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ripped a reporter on Tuesday who suggested that Muslims are facing a similar threat level as Jews are right now in the wake of Hamas' October 7 terrorist attack against Israel.

    The reporter asked DeSantis at a press conference about the alleged "increase in violence to Muslims and Muslim schools," which comes as there has been a dramatic increase in anti-Semitic incidents worldwide over the last two months.

    "Yeah, that is not true," DeSantis said. "They are not experiencing the similar threats. ... Are those students being chased for their lives in some of these universities around the country? They had the pro-Israel rally in Washington, D.C., I didn't see any hate there. I saw American flags. I saw Israel flags. I saw that."

    "I think that's a totally false equivalence, and that's what Biden has done," he continued. "Biden has responded to the unprecedented spike in anti-Semitic fervor around the world, and even in this country, he's responded by saying that the real problem is Islamophobia. They are not the same thing. That's just not what's happening, like it's happening here in the United States - and in Florida, obviously, we have areas that are targeted."

    "I don't think those are the same, and I think that there's one vein of hate that is predominating over all others right now, and that is anti-Semitism," he added.

    DeSantis said that the explosion in anti-Semitic incidents in the wake of the October 7 attacks has been so drastic, it has surprised a lot of people who already "were very concerned about this issue."

    "The number of - the percentage of crimes against people based on identity - Jews always lead that overwhelmingly in America and around the world," he concluded. "But in America, not even close. There's not even a close second. That's just the fact on it."


In the most recent Midterms Election, the "Republican Red Wave" turned out to be a "Republican Red Ripple," which, as in all elections, confounded the political prognosticators of what to expect down the governing /political road: What, and who, do you think is best for this meandering Representative Republic in the near future?
  Because they know how to best allocate the public's money back to the right part of the public, the Democrats will NOW always prevail and get my vote.
  With patriotic pragmatism the cornerstone of the best of the Republican Party, they will ultimately save this Constitutional Republic from self-destruction.
  Since the Executive Branch is so important to turn this Representative Republic around, I am still on Team Trump in 2024.
  Since the nation may need a different path to Conservative patriotism in the Executive, I am joining Team DeSantis.
  Because I am entitled to take the government dole, the prevailing favoritism whenever possible, I will support any, and every Democrat candidate.

  Demand real information, using real sources, backed up by facts.
  Promote real journalist entities only, and admonish those that prostitute their profession.
  We Democratic Socialists are doing just fine, thank-you, by promoting lies while having very little real knowledge about so much.

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.
