As a Citizen of Florida Ron DeSantis Calls FBI Mar-a-Lago Raid “Another Escalation”

At times of greatest consequence, the legacy of leadership becomes important.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis doesn’t use his official office account to release a statement on the FBI raid in Mar-a-Lago, that likely required a joint cooperative task force response from the state, as customary for fulfilment of a federal warrant upon a Florida citizen.  Instead, Florida Governor DeSantis issues a tweet from his personal account noting the action was yet “another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies.”   Oh well, that’s a relief, heavy sigh, as long as it’s just “another escalation”….

Quick pivot right to the whataboutism politics DC is famous for… “while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves”, and “IRS agents,” etc.

You see, this is what DC does to bang the pots and pans loudly in the UniParty kitchen.  As a congressional representative, Ron DeSantis learned the chaff and countermeasures well.  Actually challenge the federal government?  No way.  Not gonna happen.

Meanwhile, compare the response from future Arizona Governor Kari Lake:

Keep in mind, the personal account of Ron DeSantis could say anything he wants.  Again, for reasons known to political followers, DeSantis chose not using the FL Gov Twitter account for his response to an FBI raid that happened in his state…. that used his joint cooperation task force to execute.

Times of consequence provide insights into strength of leadership.   Or as Ron DeSantis would say “another escalation” amid a lot of escalations that have yet to reach a line where ‘escalations‘ are no longer accepted; at least not for him.  Someone with political ambitions generally draws those lines in a much different place than the regular people impacted by the escalations the professional political class like to bang their pots loudly about.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ~ Sam Adams

State Representative Anthony Sabatini from Florida district 32 seems to understand the dynamic that changed today.
