Mainstream Media Accuses DeSantis of Violence And ‘Dangerous Statements’



MSNBC’s Katie Phang is out slinging disinformation again. This time she accused Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis of inciting violence and “dangerous statements”.

It’s amazing that her last report on how DeSantis banned books in Florida was quickly labeled ‘satire’ by the network. It’s interesting how they did not publically clarify that little number—But here were are with another whopper.

Phang began her segment being as inciteful as she should be by saying, ” violent language has grown more mainstream among Republicans.

And we’ve seen how it could lead to real-life consequences from the January 6th insurrection to the recent attack on the FBI’s facility in Cincinnati. So, when Governor Ron DeSantis, a leading member of the Republican Party, with a possible eye on the presidency makes dangerous statements like these we shouldn’t take it lightly.”

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried joined Phang claiming, “It’s very dangerous, and we are seeing the heightened, just, violence in our state.

I mean, I was out at a forum a couple of months ago and had a Proud Boy that was in the forum who accosted me verbally and so you are seeing this aggressiveness all throughout the state. You’ve seen neo-Nazis marching in our street. We’re seeing even the rhetoric that’s going after that federal judge who signed the warrant.”

Fried added, “And unfortunately, DeSantis is just escalating the situation by having these commercials, these talking points. And it’s getting dangerous out here.”

It’s funny because Flordia is not one of the states headlining in crime. Mind you, they are the “a Florida man” capital of the world, and states like California, Illinois, and New York are all drowning in crime in comparison.

The two had a bit of an awkward moment as Fang brought up Fried’s recent loss in a race for commissioner in Florida. She then went on to play a clip from the guy who beat her in the races, Charles Christ—A weird move but hey, it’s her clown show.

Fried doubled down on Phang’s rhetoric claiming that the left needs to fight fire with fire. In this case, they’re discussing violence which has been nonexistent on the right.

KATIE PHANG: So, violent language has grown more mainstream among Republicans. And we’ve seen how it could lead to real life consequences from the January 6th insurrection to the recent attack on the FBI’s facility in Cincinnati. So, when Governor Ron DeSantis, a leading member of the Republican Party, with a possible eye on the presidency makes dangerous statements like these we shouldn’t take it lightly.

Joining me now on set is Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who ran in the Democratic Primary to take on Ron DeSantis for governor in November. Charlie Crist ended up with the nom. Commissioner Fried, thank you again for being on the show. Listen, during your campaign, you made it very clear that Ron DeSantis was trafficking in divisive rhetoric. I mean, that’s almost an understatement, wouldn’t you tend to agree?

NIKKI FRIED: Yeah, It’s very dangerous, and we are seeing the heightened, just, violence in our state. I mean, I was out at a forum a couple months ago and had a Proud Boy that was in the forum who accosted me verbally and so you are seeing this aggressiveness all throughout the state. You’ve seen neo-Nazis marching in our street. We’re seeing even the rhetoric that’s going after that federal judge who signed the warrant.

And unfortunately, DeSantis is just escalating the situation by having these commercials, these talking points. And it’s getting dangerous out here.

PHANG: So, you’re the only person who actually successfully won a statewide race as the commissioner of agriculture and unfortunately lost in the primary to Charlie Crist. So Charlie Crist was actually on the show, a while ago, and he was asked by me, how do you plan on fighting Ron DeSantis when it comes to maybe this ultimate battle royale between the two of them and quickly, this is what he had to say about that.

CHARLIE CRIST: He is on the battlefield of hate. I am on the battlefield of love. I’m gonna beat him because I am running on love and love always wins.

PHANG: Okay. So Nikki. Let’s speak frankly here, though, I mean, shouldn’t Charlie Crist be ready to fight fire with fire?

FRIED: Yeah, you got to be ready because unfortunately we’re in a different time right now. Where you are having someone like Ron DeSantis, who spent the last three-and-a-half years, even during his campaign for governor in 2018. He really tried to show this machismo personality. That he is just going to go, whether it’s the media, going after the media during the COVID, and going after anybody who goes against him.

I mean look, he and I battle it out all the time in cabinet meetings and you’re not gonna get the respect of people in our state and be able to pull other individuals away from this awful rhetoric if you’re willing to stand up against it. And that’s why we did throughout the entire campaign. But also what I’ve been doing as commissioner of agriculture. Being in the trenches every single day. Taking him on. Because people want to know, yes, we need to reunite our state. Yes, we have to start the rhetoric. Yes, we’ve got to stop the culture wars. But we have to get your first.

PHANG: Yeah.

FRIED: And in order for us to get there, we’ve got to show strength. And that’s what Democrats want. Democrats want right now, those fierce fighters that are gonna stand up for our ideals and push back on this dangerous rhetoric.
