The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) kicked off on Thursday in Orlando, Florida with a who’s who lineup of speakers.
But all eyes were on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
And the Left is seething after Ron DeSantis delivered a blistering 20-minute speech where he took Joe Biden and his cronies to task.
CPAC is an annual event where the top stars in the conservative movement gather to discuss politics and the future of the movement.
Starting in the 1970s, CPAC was traditionally held in the Washington, D.C. area, but the conference came to Orlando in 2021 because of tyrannical COVID rules and mandates.
Governor Ron DeSantis kicked off the conference on Thursday with a fiery 20-minute speech where he ripped Joe Biden for his many failures and touted Florida as a “citadel of freedom.”
“CPAC, let me welcome you back to the freest state in these United States,” DeSantis began.
DeSantis then delivered a 20-minute speech where he blasted the Fake News Media, “woke” corporations, Joe Biden, and Anthony Fauci.
He said Florida had rejected Biden’s “biomedical security state” by banning mask and vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State.
“We refused to let this state descend into some type of ‘Fauci-ism dystopia’ where people’s freedoms are curtailed, and their livelihoods destroyed,” DeSantis said. “We protected people’s rights, we protected jobs, we protected small businesses, and we made sure every kid had an opportunity to go to school in person five days a week,” he continued.
“Florida set an all-time record number for domestic tourism coming into our state,” DeSantis added.
DeSantis also ripped the Fake News Media for putting out a “blizzard of lies” to protect Joe Biden and the Democrats.
“We have the opportunity to make 2022 the year that AMERICA fought back!!!! We are going to lead the charge here in Florida,” DeSantis declared.
DeSantis received several standing ovations from the crowd during his speech for lines about banning Marxist-based Critical Race Theory, rerouting illegal aliens to Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware, installing three conservatives to the State Supreme Court, and banning so-called “sanctuary cities” in Florida.
“There is no substitute,” DeSantis said, for “the courage to stand in the way of the ‘Brandon administration’” — a reference to the popular “Let’s go Brandon!” phrase that essentially means “F**k Joe Biden!”
“The inflation is because of his policies, and we’re not going to let him forget that,” DeSantis added, talking about how inflation is skyrocketing as a result of Biden’s socialist agenda.
DeSantis was a clear top star of the first day of the annual gathering of conservatives.
Attendees flooded into the conference room ahead of his speech and flooded out after it.
Before his speech, DeSantis was already considered a top contender for the GOP nomination.
If Donald Trump decides not to run for President again in 2024, DeSantis is the clear frontrunner in the Republican Party.
And his fiery speech at CPAC will only make him even more popular among GOP voters nationwide and more hated by the radical Left.
