Many might have caught some of the crazy fear-driven viral stories this week about DeSantis wanting to start some state civilian-military that will be at his command. What many of these viral headlines are missing is the fact that 22 other states including Texas, California, and New York already have these units.
DeSantis recently pitched a new plan to re-establish what’s called the Florida State Guard that can quickly aid Floridians in emergency situations like hurricanes.
“We want to make sure that we have the flexibility and the ability needed to respond to events in our state in the most effective way possible. That will require us to have access and be able to use support in ways that are not encumbered by the federal government or don’t require federal government. So I’m going to be recommending in the budget $3.5 million to re-establish the Florida State Guard. The Florida State Guard will act as a civilian volunteer force that will have the ability to assist the National Guard and state-specific emergencies.”DeSantis
Many news outlets went viral with headlines that were far from the truth and were just headlines to rile up the few readers they still have.
CNN’s homepage, for example, was dominated Friday morning with the headline, “DeSantis proposes new civilian-military force,” something the liberal outlet stressed, “he would control.”
“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis wants to reestablish a World War II-era civilian military force that he, not the Pentagon, would control,” the CNN article began. “But in a nod to the growing tension between Republican states and the Biden administration over the National Guard, DeSantis also said this unit, called the Florida State Guard, would be ‘not encumbered by the federal government.’ He said this force would give him ‘the flexibility and the ability needed to respond to events in our state in the most effective way possible.’”
It wasn’t till midway into the story, that CNN admits that other states have these same unites setup and Florida would be the 23rd state to do it. So with the story going viral, of course, many of the talking Libtard celebrity heads had to join the fun, one of them being Joy Reid.
“So… y’all know this is fascisty bananas, right…?” Reid tweeted.
Silverman, an outspoken liberal, pushed back at the MSNBC star’s hyperbolic remark.
“Please read the article before you post this stuff you’re a news outlet. The truth has to matter,” Silverman told Reid.
With propaganda outlets going into full attack mode on Desantis over this announcement, shows you how much the Democrat party are scared of the Florida Governor who has become a hero to much of Florida and the nation.
