TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – Even though Governor Ron DeSantis (R) called Nazis demonstrators “jacka**es,” Florida Agriculture Commissioner and Democrat gubernatorial candidate Nikki Fried is still demanding that he “condemn” Nazis.
However, in a flashback to May of 2019, DeSantis signed landmark anti-Semitism legislation which provided record legal protections for religious groups and instituted a legal definition of anti-Semitism. Fried was seen at the ceremony applauding DeSantis’ signing of the bill into law.
“I’m proud to sign this bill to make clear through a bipartisan effort that anti-Semitism has no place in our state and our educational institutions will not tolerate discrimination against the Jewish people,” DeSantis said.
“I was especially proud to hold a ceremonial bill signing in Jerusalem. Florida is the most Israel-friendly state in the country and as long as I’m Governor, we will continue to stand with the Jewish community.”
Critics of Fried point out that it is self-evident that DeSantis is anti-Nazi and pro-Jewish community. Despite his stance on Israel and the Jewish community, he still denounced Nazis by calling them “jacka**es.” Despite this, Fried and left-wing figures claim he has not denounced them, similar to Democrat efforts against Donald Trump during the 2020 Election with white supremacy.
Supporters of DeSantis believe that it is not his responsibility to condemn every small demonstration of hate groups – they do not represent his views, and they are not linked to him.
