RT: Democrat Nikki Fried claimed Ron DeSantis acts like a dictator

In an interview with NPR last week, Florida’s current agriculture commissioner and former marijuana lobbyist Nikki Fried took aim at her rival and incumbent governor, Ron DeSantis.

“He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people’s abilities to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books,” Fried told the radio network.

“That’s what dictators do. Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler,” she added.

Later in the interview, she backtracked slightly. “Do I think that we’re going to get to the extent of Hitler’s power?” she said. “Of course not.” 

Her remarks prompted DeSantis supporters to defend his record on Jewish issues.

Bal Harbour Mayor Gabriel Groisman, who himself is Jewish, tweeted that DeSantis is “loved by the Jewish community.” “Disagreeing with his policies doesn’t make him Hitler. Low,” he tweeted on Saturday.

Florida’s Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez also backed DeSantis and pointed to the state’s funding of Jewish schools and an initiative to vaccinate Holocaust survivors against Covid-19 in their own homes.

Defending her own remarks on Sunday, Fried doubled down on her historical comparison. “Ron DeSantis and his anti-democratic demagoguery is a danger to our state, our country, and yes, the world. Choose your own historical example if you want, but it’s the damn truth,” she tweeted.

DeSantis is billed by some as a potential 2024 presidential contender.

  1. Wow, Florida is faced with voting for the Cuban Mafia, backed and controlled by the Kazarian Mafia…or voting outright for the Kazarian Mafia. Yes sir, American politics at it’s finest. I do wonder though, does Fried (a student of history) remember just who it was that financed Hitler? Is Fried her real name…or a just a double entendre moniker?

  2. Curious what Nikki Fried’s position was when DeSantis signed House Bill 741 into law during his visit to Israel, a bill many argued classifies political speech and constitutionally-protected political expression, such as boycotts, as anti-Semitic.

  3. I get it: DeSantis is an autocratic jackass, possibly able to get away with it in redneck, Trump-lovin’ Florida. That said, I see a bit of a double standard. If “Jews” are going to throw the “Hitler” card around, I don’t have a problem with that, but if that’s the case, please stop the with incensed indignation when any oppressed group of people anywhere else in the world have the temerity to describe their oppression as a “holocaust”.
