In what could become a daily recurring feature called “Two Americas,” while armed Antifa gangs are being allowed to roam freely in Portland, terrorizing and beating citizens, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis just issued a warning to them: Don’t even think about pulling that leftwing thuggery in Florida.

During a press conference, DeSantis said that if anyone tries to burn something or harm someone, particularly a police officer, during a violent assembly, “there will be consequences. They will be swift, and they will be severe, and they will be such that people who see that happening will know that’s not something we want to do going forward.”

DeSantis said the reason the violence is still going on in Portland and other blue cities is because the perpetrators face no serious consequences, and if they are arrested, they’re quickly released to do it again. He said he’ll protect legitimate First Amendment protest rights, but “the minute you harm somebody else, or you harm somebody’s property,” there will be “very swift penalties for it.'”

He’s not just blowing smoke (that's actually treated as a crime in blue cities.) Last month, he signed an anti-rioting bill that imposes harsh penalties on people who protest violently, travel from another state to participate in a riot or vandalize a monument. It also protects motorists who harm rioters who block traffic, if they believe their lives are in danger.

Naturally, leftist media outlets accused DeSantis of “fascism,” but when you defend armed gangs of radical thugs who pull people out of vehicles and beat them within an inch of their lives, I don’t feel like listening to a lecture from you about how bad you think fascism is.

    This governor is a patriot. He will be an excellent addition to president Trump's team.

    Governor DeSantis has the same values as President Trump, Americans first, Government should not rule our lives, and if Antifa destroys our cities and businesses they should be dealt with a strong fist, the same as BLM. If any of us picked up fireworks and fired into police stations or government buildings we would be arrested and thrown in jail, this should apply to all that break the laws.

    I agree with Governor DeSantis wholeheartedly! If we had more governors like him and if President Trump had used the Insurrection Act of 1807, we would not be in this situation today.
