While Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was signing a bill that focuses on holding big tech accountable a reporter asked if the legislation was for the benefit of new Florida resident and former President Donald Trump. DeSantis’s response drove the crowd to its feet when he replied that while the bill is for everyday Floridians the de-platforming of the former President of the United States is a major concern in and of itself.
According to The Daily Wire:
The reporter stated, “Governor, I want to ask you about the bill you’re signing here today.” Then she pressed, “You’re a loyal supporter of former President Donald Trump; Donald Trump is now a resident in Florida and he was deplatformed. Is this bill for him?”
DeSantis began, “The bill is for everyday Floridians; this is what we’ve said, and it will allow any Floridian to be able to provide what they’re doing.”
Then he brought the house down: “But I do think that’s another issue that’s been brought to bear: when you deplatform the President of the United States but you let Ayatollah Khamenei talk about killing Jews, that’s wrong.”
In 2014, Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, tweeted a nine-point plan for the elimination of the state of Israel. In June 2018, Khamenei tweeted, “Our stance against Israel is the same stance we have always taken. #Israel is a malignant cancerous tumor in the West Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated: It is possible and it will happen.”
