Antifa, a group many believe to be supported by the democrat party, continues to “protest” across the country. Many of these so-called protests result in property damage and in some circumstances bodily harm.
In places like Portland, Antifa, and other groups have been given carte blanch to go about as they please looting and even attempting to burn down federal buildings.
While some locales may be ok with this type of behavior, rest assured it will not be tolerated in Florida so long as Ron DeSantis is governor.
The Blaze reports,
“I think if you look around the country, what happens is, like in Portland, these people riot every night,” he said. “They go, they get their mug shot, and then they get put right back on the street to do it again. That’s what we don’t want.”
He added, “The minute you harm somebody else or you harm somebody’s property, you do those types of things, the only way we’re going to put a stop to it is to have very swift penalties for it.”
Pointing to areas such as Portland, Oregon, DeSantis added that crime is spiking in areas across America due to a lack of support for police.
“There’s a lot of places around this country that have not stood by law enforcement, and the tragedy of it is, you’re seeing crime spike in certain parts of our country like we haven’t seen in decades,” he explained. “The people that are going to be most affected by that are the most vulnerable members of our society.”
He also added that he is issuing the statewide bonuses because it is imperative for law enforcement and first responders to function and serve the country as they always have.
“One of the reasons we are here today with the bonuses is because we know just how important that is. It tells people, ‘Hey, if you are in Portland and you think you can come down to Florida and do this, stay out of our state!’ We don’t want you coming down here and causing problems,” DeSantis insisted. “If anyone does cause these problems, if you try to burn something down, try harm anybody, but particularly a police officer during one these violent assemblies, there will be consequences. They will be swift and they will be severe. They will be such that people who see that happening will know that’s not something that we want to do going forward.”
The actions of Governor Ron DeSantis prove that all politics is local. It is not and should not be up to the federal government to ensure we are safe at the local level. We need competent leaders like what we are seeing with DeSantis in other states, counties, and municipalities throughout the country.
There is a reason the mainstream media is doing everything they can to disparage DeSantis as they see him as a threat to the establishment. With leaders like DeSantis, people will begin to realize they no longer need to rely on the federal government to protect them.
It’s apparent we aren’t the only ones who support DeSantis and his mission to keep Antifa out of his state.

Antifa’s days are numbered in Florida, we need this movement to expand across the country so we can purge them from all of our towns and cities. We all agree with everyone’s right to peaceably assemble. What Antifa is doing is not peaceful and has no place in this country!
