Joe Biden and the Democrats truly regret the day they decided Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was the Republican they wanted to pick a fight with.
That decision continues to blow up in their face.
And Ron DeSantis just scored a huge piece of revenge against Joe Biden that will drive leftists crazy.
Governor DeSantis made a major announcement that Retired Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Chris Graham would lead the Florida State Guard.
Unlike the National Guard, which can be federalized and must follow federal mandates, the Florida State Guard is a completely state-based unit.
Governor DeSantis explained that he signed legislation creating the unit after Joe Biden imposed an immoral and un-American COVID vaccine mandate on the U.S. military.
“When he came into office, he decided to impose a COVID vax mandate on the U.S. military. You had a situation where most people in our military are the lowest of the lowest risk for COVID, to begin with. Many of them had already had COVID and had recovered in 2020 into 2021, and yet imposed these mandates on them. And that has had the impact of actually kicking people out who had served honorably, who just decided this is not what they want to do,” DeSantis stated.
Joe Biden began kicking Americans out of the military just because they did not want or need the COVID vaccine.
Many saw this as Joe Biden attempting to purge conservatives from the armed forces.
DeSantis explained that the Florida State Guard will be made of Floridians and not subject to any federal mandates or orders.
“The Florida State Guard will be comprised of Floridians, and it’ll be designed to assist and help only Floridians, it will not be subject to be mobilized by the federal government, and the federal government cannot impose policies or penalties on the Florida State Guard,” DeSantis added.
When DeSantis signed legislation creating the Florida State Guard, Democrats and many in the corporate-controlled media shrieked that DeSantis was creating his own paramilitary force to seize dictatorial power.
But DeSantis noted that other states – including deep blue New York – have their own state guard and there was nothing abnormal about the practice.
“Florida will join over 20 other states and territories that currently have their own state guard, including states like New York,” DeSantis continued.
Joe Biden thought he could purge conservatives from being able to serve in the armed forces by imposing an unpopular vaccine mandate.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recognized this was wrong and gave those looking to serve but who didn’t want to get the jab another option.
