The Democrats and corporate-controlled media tried to use Ron DeSantis as a political punching bag over his opposition to Biden’s mask and vaccine mandates.
They even called him nasty names such as “Ron DeathSantis.”
But one Florida Democrat said something so despicable about Ron DeSantis that it left jaws on the floor.
Ron DeSantis is a rock star among Republican voters nationwide due to his refusal to impose economy-crushing lockdowns and enforce tyrannical vaccine and mask mandates in Florida.
Polls consistently show that Ron DeSantis would win the 2024 GOP nomination for President if Donald Trump decides not to run again for re-election.
However, Ron DeSantis is facing his own gubernatorial re-election this November.
Even though DeSantis is currently in the driver’s seat for a re-election victory, that hasn’t stopped his Democrat opponents from launching nasty attacks and vicious smears against him.
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried is currently the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to take on Ron DeSantis in November.
And during a recent interview with NPR public radio, Nikki Fried went so far as to draw parallels between Ron DeSantis and Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
“Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he’s trying to govern over the people. And that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history too. I saw the rise of Hitler. I learned those stories,” Fried began.
Clearly surprised by her statement, host Melissa Ross followed up by asking Fried if she was serious about comparing DeSantis to Hitler.
“In a lot of ways, yes,” Fried shot back.
“I have studied Hitler and how he got to power. Wanting his own militia. Having his own army,” Fried added.
Hoo Boy… It's one thing to *read* that Nikki Fried compared Ron DeSantis to Hitler; completely another to blow by several offramps en route to that comparison. Will media cover? pic.twitter.com/bMYDowcZGD

Of course, Fried is referring to the recent proposal by Ron DeSantis to revive the Florida State Guard, which is an auxiliary force at the Governor’s command in emergencies designed to take pressure off the National Guard.
Even though more than 20 other states have a state-controlled defense force, Fried and the Democrats falsely accused DeSantis of acting like a dictator by allegedly raising his own army.
“Do I think that we’re going to get to the extent of Hitler’s power? Of course not. But the rise of his power and what he did to scapegoat certain parts, especially the Jewish community in Germany, and how he utilized going after the media, going after and scapegoating people and blaming people and putting fear and taking over the military, that’s what this Governor is doing,” Fried said.
Fried’s attack is backfiring on the Democrats.
Multiple Republican legislators have demanded she step down for comparing DeSantis to murderous dictator Aldolf Hitler.
But regardless of whether she steps down, Fried’s disgusting attack only shows how far the Left is willing to go to try to take down Ron DeSantis.
