(FreedomWire.org) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted the Democrats and mainstream media as protests erupt over the highly anticipated Roe v. Wade opinion.
DeSantis warned the left’s attempt to intimidate Supreme Court justices would be “considered an insurrection” just days after a man was charged with attempting to murder Justice Kavanaugh.
“I think that we have a rule of law in this country, and you don’t get to just have a mob descend on Supreme Court justice’s house or try to impede the operations of government because there may be a decision you don’t like,” DeSantis said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “That would be considered an insurrection to stop a court from functioning, and yet they seem to be able to get away with a lot more than if the shoe were on the other foot.”
An armed California man was arrested last week near his Maryland home with intentions to kill Justice Kavanaugh. He was carrying a gun, knife, and other burglary necessities at the time of the arrest, according to authorities.
“You had someone travel from… halfway around the country to come and murder Justice Kavanaugh,” DeSantis said. “And that was like not even significant news in a lot of the mainstream media.”
DeSantis noted that outlets like CNN did not want to cover this story because it was inconvenient politically for them.
“The silence is deafening from a lot of our media outlets on this,” DeSantis added. “They do not want to talk about it.”
DeSantis slammed the double standard.
“If the shoe was reversed,” DeSantis added “they’d be going berserk if some Trump supporter were doing anything approaching . . . that.”
The facts backed up DeSantis’ comments.
The New York Times covered the assassination attempt on Justice Kavanaugh.
