Democrats are lashing out at Republicans.
That’s their only strategy because they can’t campaign on their record.
And Ron DeSantis just punched back at Democrats who accused him of promoting violence.
Democrats have been attempting to fear-monger about Republicans.
Joe Biden’s approval ratings are in the dumps, so Democrats’ pitch is that Republicans are “too extreme” for office.
That’s why Democrats have been attempting to frame Republicans as violent, even though the Democrats were the ones who egged on rioters in 2020 who burned and looted American cities and even paid bail for protesters.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre supported Joe Biden’s claim that Republicans were “semi-fascist,” and she included Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Jean-Pierre said, “[J]ust last week, you had Governor Ron DeSantis suggest that Dr. Fauci should be physically assaulted. And former President Trump has done the same many, many times.”
First, Biden said he wanted to “beat the hell” out of Trump, so perhaps Jean-Pierre should start there.
Second, she ignored the full context of what DeSantis said when calling Dr. Anthony Fauci a “little elf.”
In response to Fauci’s outrageous claim that lockdowns did not cause damage, DeSantis said during a fiery press conference, “You have people like Fauci saying that his lockdowns didn’t cause any permanent damage to any young kids. I got news for you. It did, and we are going to reap those rewards across the whole country for years and years and years because they treated kids so poorly . . . And I’m just sick of seeing him. I know he says he’s going to retire. Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac.”
DeSantis’s hyperbolic comments were clearly not a call to violence or mayhem – conversely, Kamala Harris told protesters and rioters “don’t let up” during the summer of rage when dozens were murdered and billions in property were destroyed.
Dave Abrams, a spokesperson for the DeSantis campaign, responded, “Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci needlessly locked people in their homes and out of their jobs, kept kids away from school, and sent tens of thousands of seniors to their deaths – those are the physical assaults they ought to be talking about from the podium.”
Democrats are attempting to distract from the fact that they forced people to shut down their businesses, locked them inside their homes, and let criminals out of jail early so they could rampage through the streets.
