Despite President Joe Biden’s knack for retreating to a bunker, Florida Democrat and Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried’s foremost image of the modern Adolf Hitler is Florida governor Ron DeSantis.
Citing his increasing popularity among Americans, built upon his post-pandemic strategy that restores free will for civilians wary of restrictions, Fried mounted her charges by accusing DeSantis of “banning books,” “making it harder to vote,” and operating a state-led militia.
The media has frequented the militia narrative on DeSantis’ Florida State Guard without ever citing the civilian-led group’s objective to provide aid during times of natural disaster.
During a podcast interview on Friday, Fried doubled down on her Hitler comparison — targeting one of the few governors that hasn’t demanded documentation to enter establishments.
“He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people’s abilities to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books,” Fried stated. “That’s what dictators do. Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler.”
“Are you comparing DeSantis to Hitler?” asked the interviewer in a baffling query.
“In a lot of ways, yes,” Fried declared. “I have studied Hitler and how he got to power, you know, wanting his own militia.”
The supposedly unbiased media have racked up their allegations toward DeSantis since the start of 2020 as Democratic governors fail to recreate the public image or post-pandemic success that the Sunshine State governor has tirelessly fought for.
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid previously identified DeSantis’ Florida State Guard as a fascistic grab for power — letting you know the validity of that accusation.
Political chicanery continues to make asses out of Dems … and Hitler was a bit of an ass, need we say more?
