DeSantis Stands Up For Freedom, Rips ‘Media Hysteria’ Driving The Infringement On People’s Rights

ORLANDO, FL – Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) defiantly spoke out on Monday that he will not be bringing back lockdowns to his state based on “media-driven hysteria” over the new omicron variant COVID-19.

“We are not in Florida going to allow any media-driven hysteria to do anything to infringe people’s individual freedoms when it comes to any types of COVID variants,” DeSantis said at a press conference that was held for him to talk about his plans to give more funding to law enforcement.

“In Florida, we will not let (the federal government) lock you down,” DeSantis continued. “We will not let them take your jobs. We will not let them harm your businesses. We will not let them close your schools.”

This came after President Joe Biden said that lockdowns were off the table “for now” as researchers scramble to find out if this new variant impacts the efficacy of the coronavirus jabs.

“If people are vaccinated and wear their masks, there’s no need for the lockdown,” Biden said as he called on Americans to get their booster shot, according to The National Review. “Dr. Fauci believes that the current vaccines provide at least some protection against the new variant and the booster strengthen [sic] that protection significantly.”

During his press conference, DeSantis also asked lawmakers to approve $73 million so that he can increase the minimum pay for entry-level sworn state law enforcement officers by 20 percent.

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

“My proposal also includes an increase in pay of 25 percent for all other state sworn law enforcement personnel to help our state law enforcement agencies retain the folks we already have and also to reward them for hard work serving and protecting Floridians,” DeSantis said, adding that he would additionally like $5,000 bonuses to recruit and retain both law enforcement officials at both the state and local levels.

“My proposal also includes an increase in pay of 25 percent for all other state sworn law enforcement personnel to help our state law enforcement agencies retain the folks we already have and also to reward them for hard work serving and protecting Floridians,” he continued. “Increasing salaries for state law enforcement by 20 and 25 percent respectively is going to make a real difference for those officers [and] their families.”

DeSantis is a governor who actually respects law enforcement, and he’s arguably handled the COVID-19 pandemic better than any other leader in the country. It will certainly be interesting to see if he decides to use these successes to run for president in 2024.

Since the new variant is nothing, can we borrow DeSantis for awhile? Arizona needs a good governor.

Love Gov. DeSantis-he is handling Florida just Great!
Would like to have someone tell him that this “latest Democrat/Fauci/NEW STRAIN is like a joke on the people, as the name of that New African Strain spells out what they KNOW is the truth: “MORANIC”

With Fauci leading the way as the ‘Dem Operative he is, as it is, to KEEP people in Fear w/ Lockdowns!
