Orlando, FL — On Saturday, the sick and twisted radical left decided to try to take down Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. How? By using a tragic accident where two people were killed after being hit by a car in Ft Lauderdale. Their method should not surprise us. After all, it comes from the radical left that will “never let a crisis go to waste.”
They believed that they had the opportunity to capitalize on the situation. It was a pride parade event that was being held. A truck, driven by a white driver, accelerated through a gay men’s chorus and killed two people. You can see a video of the driver being led away below.

That’s all the left needed to know. Almost immediately, #DeathSantis started trending on Twitter blaming Ron DeSantis for what happened. They referred to recent legislation he had signed that they claimed would allow white supremacists to target the LGBTQ community. They shared how this was a white supremacist, hate-motivated attack. That was until it was not any of those things.
In fact, local news outlets are reporting that the driver was a part of the same group that the men’s chorus belonged to. The driver was wearing their shirt and was a participant in the parade as well. That did not slow down the trending tweets and attacks on DeSantis however.
After their hypocrisy was pointed out, radical media outlets tried to come to the defense of those who suggested this was a white supremacist, anti-LGBTQ attack by spinning it that it was an assassination attempt on Democratic congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Even that does not appear to be true based on eyewitness reports that the driver got out of the vehicle and said it was an accident. Others were reporting that they heard him say his foot got stuck between the gas and brake pedals of his vehicle. No official report has been made as of yet.
While anytime someone dies like this is a tragic event, it shows how despicable the radical left is in their attempts to smear and destroy anyone who is against their socialist agenda. DeSantis is an outspoken opponent of anything the radical left has tried to do. He was against shutdowns, lockdowns, and his state was part of the first ones to open back up.
He has signed laws against Antifa, which is what many were upset about, where the group likes to block highways. He has said his state will not be a sanctuary for those radical ideas and groups who seek to destroy cities in the name of equality.
His actions are supported by a majority of Floridians as well. In a recent poll, DeSantis received a 55% approval rating for his work. He has consistently polled high in approval ratings in his state and is considered a threat if Donald Trump chooses not to run for President. This is no doubt why the Democrats want to go after him.
So they tried to capitalize on a tragic event such as this. Again, it is not a new low for the Democrats to capitalize on a tragedy. It is, however, the latest attempt to capitalize on a tragedy where no one among the mainstream media will hold them accountable.
Big Tech is complicit too. Twitter did nothing to stop the misinformation, continuing to allow the trend to take place for hours after the first suggestion DeSantis was at fault. While they are quick to pull down conservative talking points, they allowed these outright lies to continue to trend and gain popularity.
People across our country must wake up to what the woke radicals are doing. Exploiting crisis in the name of equality is not fighting for equality at all. They have so many convinced that they are fighting for social justice, while everyone is overlooking that this is purely about politics and control.
These attempts were never about the LGBTQ community. It was about the radical left’s desire to eliminate Ron DeSantis so they can continue their march toward a socialist United States. It was a despicable attempt using a tragic event to attempt to leverage control.
