Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed the mainstream media during a press conference on Monday over its coverage of the recent massacre of participants of a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

DeSantis said that corporate media organizations spin false narratives about incidents that happen and that the record largely never gets corrected.

“And we’re seeing that right now in real time with Waukesha, Wisconsin, in terms of what happened there,” DeSantis said. “You will look at some of these corporate outlets and they will say that ‘an SUV drove into a parade of Christmas folks.'”

“You never actually hear the discussion about who committed this; what was the motivation?” DeSantis continued. “This guy was a career criminal let out on, didn’t really have any bail basically, should not have even been on the street, had clear, anti-white animus. And this was an intentional act. And it seems like, you know, for corporate press, they’re more apt to characterize a parent who goes to a school board meeting to protest bad policies as a domestic terrorist than somebody who intentionally rams an SUV into a crowd of innocent people.”

“So, you have at least six have died, you have many more that have been injured,” DeSantis added. “I know many people are in the hospital. And so let’s just be clear, this was not a car just driving in. This was an attack by a felon who did that, who should not have been on the street and we’ll see what the actual motivation was. It very well may have been in response to what happened with Kyle Rittenhouse. And you have to wonder if that’s the case, almost surely, this guy’s view of Rittenhouse was was colored by all these media lies. He brought a rifle across state lines, that’s a lie. They said that the initial altercation with Jacob Blake, that Blake was unarmed, that’s a lie. They covered up Blake’s criminal history.”

TRANSCRIPT:

RON DESANTIS, GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA: One of the things I think that’s been most frustrating to witness in terms of law enforcement, is how anti-law enforcement narratives are consistently spun by these national corporate media outlets. They will swoop into a community, they will create a false narrative, and then they kind of just leave and they never correct the record when what they’re saying is obviously false. And we’re seeing that right now in real time with Waukesha, Wisconsin, in terms of what happened there. You will look at some of these corporate outlets and they will say that ‘an SUV drove into a parade of Christmas folks’, and you’re thinking like, ‘really is that how it works, the SUVs, they just drive by themselves?’ … And they say, ‘oh, this was a big accident.’ You never actually hear the discussion about who committed this. What was the motivation? This guy was a career criminal let out on, didn’t really have any bail basically, should not have even been on the street, had clear, anti-white animus. And this was an intentional act. And it seems like, you know, for corporate press, they’re more apt to characterize a parent who goes to a school board meeting to protest bad policies as a domestic terrorist than somebody who intentionally rams an SUV into a crowd of innocent people.

So, you have at least six have died. You have many more that have been injured. I know many people are in the hospital. And so let’s just be clear, this was not a car just driving in. This was an attack by a felon who did that, who should not have been on the street and we’ll see what the actual motivation was. It very well may have been in response to what happened with Kyle Rittenhouse. And you have to wonder if that’s the case, almost surely, this guy’s view of Rittenhouse was was colored by all these media lies. He brought a rifle across state lines, that’s a lie. They said that the initial altercation with Jacob Blake, that Blake was unarmed, that’s a lie. They covered up Blake’s criminal history. And then they said that Rittenhouse shot, and first of all, when you’re self defense, it doesn’t matter, you know, kind of what race, but they would say that he shot, most people didn’t know that he shot three white people. So, that’s what the media has been doing. And they tend to point a target on law enforcement’s back. But this is just wrong. And these lies have got to stop. And if it doesn’t fit your narrative, sweeping the facts under the rug is not doing the service that people deserve. It is what we expect, unfortunately, from a lot of these places, but it’s wrong. And I think the way they’ve treated law enforcement across the board over the last two years has been an absolute disgrace. So let’s just be clear, they are not wanting to cover this Wisconsin thing for what it is, they are not wanting the facts to come out the way they are because the facts do not support their narrative. And it’s all about pursuing partisan narratives.
