Ron DeSantis just triggered leftists with one patriotic image

Aug 15, 2022

Snowflakes in the Fake News Media melted.

They were furious with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

And that’s because Ron DeSantis triggered leftists with one patriotic image.

Governor DeSantis announced Floridians could now purchase “Don’t Tread on Me” license plates and all proceeds would benefit veterans groups.

Leftists at National Public Radio freaked out over the announcement and claimed that the image of the Gadsden Flag – which dates back to the Revolutionary War – was now a symbol of white supremacy and opposition to the results of the 2020 election.

“The imagery of the Revolutionary War-era Gadsden flag dates to Benjamin Franklin but has, for many, come to symbolize a far-right extremist ideology and the ‘Stop the Steal’ movement that sought to overturn the 2020 presidential election results,” a story from NPR read.

NPR quoted a top official from the far-left hate group the Southern Poverty Law Center named Carroll Rivas who claimed that the Gadsden Flag – that the Continental Army fought under – was really a symbol of racism, oppression, and slavery.

“Carroll Rivas compares it to a similar controversy over the use of the Confederate ‘stars and bars’ flag on license plates. In 2009, the group Confederate Veterans, Inc., requested the flag on a specialty license plate, but Texas refused. The veterans group sued, and the case ultimately went to the Supreme Court. In 2015, in a 5-4 decision, the court held that such specialty plates (not to be confused with ‘vanity plates’) were government speech and therefore states have the right to pick and choose what goes on them,” NPR reported.

Every cultural symbol that angers leftists the Fake News Media now claims is rooted in white supremacy and racism.

Leftists detest the Gadsden Flag on license plates because it reminds Floridians that Governor DeSantis rejected Dr. Fauci’s COVID tyranny.

That’s what DeSantis and others mean when they refer to the “free state of Florida.”

COVID lockdowns and the accompanying mandates are hugely unpopular with the public now.

Democrats want Americans to forget they supported shutting down the economy, closing schools, and forcing kids to wear masks.

Governor DeSantis won’t let them get away with that.
