DeSantis has been vocal about his support for Israel.
But when DeSantis and Republican House and Senate leaders called for a special session – woke leftists were outraged.
And at the end of the special session – woke leftists went ballistic once they learned what DeSantis accomplished.
DeSantis rallies Florida politicians to act
When Hamas attacked Israel and murdered civilians, DeSantis was quick to condemn the Hamas terrorists.
But he did more than just talk – he helped rescue trapped Americans on charter planes and bring them back to the U.S.
And that was just the start.
He rallied the Florida Legislature to act swiftly to ensure not one penny left Florida and went into the hands of Hamas sympathizers.
DeSantis said “Following the horrific atrocities committed by Iranian-backed terrorist group Hamas against Israel, I am calling on the Florida Legislature to act swiftly to ensure our state does not send a penny to the Iranian terror state,” reported the Tampa Bay Times.
“I am glad to see the Legislature’s willingness to convene and address this along with other important issues of the state,” DeSantis continued.
Florida made one thing clear – they stand with Israel
As the Florida Legislature wrapped up their special session – they made it clear they were on team Israel.
The Florida Senate voted unanimously to approve a resolution to condemn Hamas for their horrific attack on Israel . . .
. . . and they voted to provide $45 million in grants to help protect and secure Jewish institutions against hate crimes and antisemitic attacks, reported ABC News.
The Florida Legislature also voted to expand the definition of “scrutinized companies” that do business with Iran.
But some Florida Democrats were upset at expanding the definition of a ‘scrutinized company.’
Rep Anna Eskamani, D-Miami said “I have a lot of family in Iran. Majority of my family is in Iran, and I cannot vote for something that could potentially hurt my family in Iran. And so members, I will be voting no on this,” reported Florida’s Voice.
Woke leftists refuse to stand with Israel
The insanity of protests on college campuses of students “backing Palestine” is composed of many young kids who either don’t understand the history of what’s going on in Israel – or simply hate Israel.
DeSantis wasn’t having it in his state – and called on Florida colleges to ban the pro-Palestinian groups.
He received criticism – but defended his actions.
DeSantis claimed the groups weren’t just in support of Palestine – but actually linked themselves to Hamas.
“You have a right to go out and demonstrate, but you can’t provide material support to terrorism. They’ve linked themselves to Hamas … it’s not a first amendment issue. That’s a material support to terrorism issue,” DeSantis said.
From condemning Hamas, to agreeing Israel has the right to defend itself, to protecting Jewish Floridians – DeSantis has demonstrated a strong support for Israel – and proven yet again he knows how to get things done in the Florida Legislature.
