As elites attempt to bring in immigrants whose beliefs and values are fundamentally at odds with the nation, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a warning over the weekend that the United States needed to address its political correctness problem seriously or else the woke mindset will end up being the death of the nation.
DeSantis made the comments on Saturday at the Republican Jewish Coalition Leadership Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada, during a speech that was mostly focused on Israel.
“We already have some of the strongest in the United States, we now have an ability to expand those because the money that’s going into Iran, they’re not using it to make the lives of their people better. They’re using it to fund terrorism throughout the Middle East. So we’re standing up and we’re doing what’s right. And again, this is about leading not with mere words, but deeds. And we’ve done that time and time again.” he said.
The 45-year-old went on to highlight his record of helping Jewish communities in the state, combating anti-Semitism on college campuses, assisting with the evacuation of people from Israel after the October 7 attacks, and sending a sizable amount of supplies to the nation, all while stating that support for Israel and the Jewish people is “personal” for him.
He declared that in order to “expand our state-based sanctions against the Iranian regime,” he has called a special session of the legislature to reconvene in a few weeks.
He added that Israel’s border defenses were breached, which contributed to the attack on the country.
Citing this, he said the United States should take immediate action to fortify its border with Mexico.
“I was also the first candidate to say that we in the United States cannot accept refugees from the Gaza Strip. And here’s the thing. We got to start looking at these issues with clear eyes. Political correctness will end this country if we don’t stop doing it. And I said you don’t want the Gaza. And what they said was, ‘well, they’re not all Hamas’. Well, look, they elected Hamas. Let’s just be clear. They were cheering for Hamas when Hamas perpetrated this attack, just like they cheered when Al Qaeda knocked down the Twin Towers. They were cheering Palestinian Arabs when that happened.” DeSantis said.
