Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ rise to fame was swift and exceptional. Because of that, he’s created a few enemies along the way.
And Ron DeSantis turned blue in the face when he found out who was behind this disgusting attack on him.
The sad reality is that there’s no low some people won’t stoop to in an attempt to either commit character assassination and/or get their time in the sun and thirty seconds of fame.
Just consider how the entire Left were willing to support unsubstantiated claims of assault that Christine Blasey Ford was lobbing against Brett Kavanaugh as soon as he had the opportunity to be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
A little convenient, the timing, right?
Well that’s how the Left plays the political game in the modern age. They know full and well their policies are, for the most part, far too extreme for the average American to stomach, much less endorse.
So to stay politically relevant, they’ve done an unfortunately good job of simply making all of their political opponents appear to be “racist,” “sexist,” and basically Adolf Hitler.
So when Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis rose to fame in what felt like like an instant, it was only a matter of time before someone would come around to try to commit character assassination on him too.
Well, now the gross attacks are coming just as fast and hard as DeSantis’ rise to popularity in conservative circles.
Recently, Vanity Fair published a piece on Ron DeSantis saying that a DeSantis administration would be “terrifying” like the Trump administration apparently was for them.
Their arguments in the article were nonsensical, saying that Elon Musk endorsing Ron DeSantis was a prime reason why DeSantis would be an “authoritarian.”
The Vanity Fair article writer, Bess Levin, gave thirteen reason for why DeSantis shouldn’t be President.
Levin laughably claimed that DeSantis is “anti-free speech” and treats people like “chattel.”
Because somehow supporting policies that create more freedom for Floridians as the DeSantis admin has, is anti-free speech and authoritarian.
The article gets worse, though. Later, Levin cites a former college classmate of Ron DeSantis’s, who apparently thinks DeSantis is the “most selfish person” ever.
Vanity Fair writes:
A former college teammate, who simultaneously praised DeSantis’s intelligence, described him thusly to The New Yorker: “Ron is the most selfish person I have ever interacted with. He has always loved embarrassing and humiliating people. I’m speaking for others—he was the biggest dick we knew.” We’ll repeat that for emphasis: “He has always loved embarrassing and humiliating people.” Great qualities to have in an elected official!
Obviously this is just a baseless attempt to attack DeSantis’ character simply because they disagree with his policies and they can’t stand that he’s successful.
Just consider how they put that tidbit from a former college classmate at the very bottom of the article after a bunch of obviously rubbish arguments against his political worldview.
For one, they know that they are just clawing at anything to cut DeSantis down at the legs however possible.
And secondly, the know the DeSantis admin’s policies are very popular with the American people right now.
So the only way to fight is to deflect and demonize. That’s the Left’s game today.
