Ron Desantis is NOT playing patty-cake with the bad guys like the idiot ‘leaders’ in New York, Oregon, and Washington State have been.
He is taking a hard line on anyone who thinks there is such a thing as their First-Amendment right to riot.
One Polk County Florida Sheriff stole the show when he was given the opportunity to make the announcement.
Here’s the short and sweet version:
Florida Sheriff Grady Judd brought Pictures to Governor Ron DeSantis press conference . .
*Just so all Understand the difference . .
"This is a Peaceful Protest" . . .
"This is *Not a Peaceful Protest"

There is a very discernable difference between peaceful protests and violent crimes like looting, arson, and other aggressive behavior.
One of them will be protected. The other will be prosecuted.
DeSantis, speaking to reporters on Monday at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, said the bill would provide mandatory jail time for those who hit law enforcement officers, in addition to levying felonies against protesters who damage property or injure others. The bill would also prevent protesters who commit crimes from being employed by the state or receiving state benefits, according to Politico.
“We’re not going to go down the road that other places have gone,” the governor said. “If you do it, and you know that a ton of bricks will rain down on you, then I think people will think twice about engaging in this type of conduct.”
DeSantis is a major ally of President Trump, who has called for governors to take a stronger stance against protesters who commit crimes or riot.
“This is a very robust package,” the governor said. “I think what it is saying is we’re not going to let Florida go down the road where some of these places have gone.”
…The legislation would also prevent municipalities in the Sunshine State from getting state grants if they move to defund local police departments. — Examiner

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
