DeSantis Slams Corporate Media for Pushing False ‘Insurrection’ Narrative, Ignoring BLM Riots

Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has slammed America’s corporate media for its blatant hypocrisy.

DeSantis took aim at the media during a press conference Thursday.

He was speaking to the press about his new legislative push taking action against illegal immigration amid Democrat President Joe Biden’s ongoing crisis at the southern border.

The governor blasted the Democrats and their allies in the corporate media trying to frame the event at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, as an “insurrection.”

He called out the hypocrisy of the same media outlets pushing the false “insurrection” narrative after ignoring the violent far-left Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 that destroyed communities across America.

His remarks came in response to a report about changes that are happening at the Florida Capitol.

The changes will reportedly modify who is allowed to hold demonstrations on the grounds.

DeSantis said that the rule change did not come from him and that he was not involved in the decision.

“I would imagine that it’s just, you go there, and you speak your mind, great,” DeSantis said.

“But you’ll have some groups that will try to take over Capitols like we’ve seen in other state Capitols.”

“And, you know, it’s interesting, if they’re doing that from the Left, then the media says, ‘that’s democracy in action,’” he continued.

“They don’t say it’s an ‘insurrection’ if you take over a Capitol because of that, but I think that’s what it’s getting to.”

DeSantis also took aim at false claims that are being peddled by the media about Florida’s education policies.

He specifically highlighted “media lies” about his decision to ban Critical Race Theory (CRT), “queer studies,” and radical gender theory in Florida A.P. African America Studies.

“You have the reporter saying that ‘Governor DeSantis does not want students to learn about slavery and its aftermath,’” DeSantis said.

“Well if you actually looked at what our standards are, not only is it not prohibited to teach that, it’s required to teach that.

“We are required to teach all aspects of black history, not queer theory, but actual aspects of black history

“They are lying to you,” DeSantis added.

The governor said that the media is lying to people to “try to create a narrative” because they have an agenda that they are trying to push for political reasons.
