Democrats do not seem to be getting the message.
It’s costing them dearly.
And now this Democrat is going to be really sorry he just picked a fight with Ron DeSantis.
Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren put out a video pledging to fight the suspension handed down by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over Warren’s refusal to fairly and evenly enforce the law.
“I’m not going down without a fight,” Warren ranted. “I refuse to let this man trample on your freedoms to speak your mind, to make your own health care decisions, and to have your vote count.”
Warren – a Democrat who won office with the backing of George Soros – claimed his pro-crime policies were popular and Constitutional.
“I was elected because the people of this county share my vision for criminal justice, trust my judgment, and have seen your success,” Warren added. “I swore to uphold the Constitution, and that’s exactly what I’ve done. DeSantis is trying to take away my job for doing my job.”
DeSantis suspended Warren after Warren refused to enforce the state’s anti-rioting law as well as Warren’s announcements that he would not enforce the state’s 15-week abortion ban or any potential new law banning transgender surgeries for minor children.
Governor DeSantis stated he was not going to sit idly by and watch as woke politics poisoned the state’s criminal justice system.
“I don’t think the people of Hillsborough County want to have an agenda that is basically woke, where you’re deciding that your view of social justice means certain laws shouldn’t be enforced,” Governor DeSantis explained.
George Soros made a bet that by backing left-wing candidates in District Attorney’s races that he could push the nation’s criminal justice system far to the Left.
But while Soros saw electoral success with candidates like Warren and Chesa Boudin winning out in San Francisco it proved to be a pyrrhic victory.
Left-wing District Attorneys emptying the prisons of violent criminals and supporting no cash bail policies helped cause a surge in crime.
That spike in crime in Democrat-run cities now threatens the Left’s hold on power in the Midterm election.
Voters out in far-left San Francisco even recalled Boudin after his disastrous pro-crime agenda turned the city into a hellscape.
Governor DeSantis does not want things anywhere in Florida to reach that level of crisis.
So he stepped in and suspended Warren for not doing his job as other conservative Governors ought to do if they find themselves in a similar situation.
