Democrat Florida Official Refuses GOP Gov DeSantis’ Order
We lost a legend in Rush Limbaugh, the easiest way to know this is to see how much the left hated him. Even worse and more telling, how they reacted to the news of his passing from cancer … with jubilation. It’s just SICK.
I will admit that once Rush’s hearing went and his voice changed I did not listen to him much, but growing up he likely shaped by view of the world more than anyone outside of my family.
Ironically, I grew up to judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. The idea that the left, who wants distribute Covid vaccines based on race, has smearing Rush as a racist, and before his body was even cold, is more than ironic, it’s insane.
Now, I don’t know what the law is when it comes to the state mandating the flag to be flown at half staff, but if this is a legal order, this woman has no right to refuse it…
Ohhhh, wait, she’s a Democrat, she gets to pick and choose which laws she wants to follow and which she doesn’t.
The Gateway Pundit explains:
‘Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) ordered flags at half-staff to honor the late conservative icon and radio host Rush Limbaugh.
However, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, a Democrat, is refusing to lower flags despite the Governor’s order.
“Lowering to half-staff the flag of the United States of America is a sacred honor that pays respect to fallen heroes and patriots. It is not a partisan political tool. Therefore, I will notify all state offices under my direction to disregard the Governor’s forthcoming order to lower flags for Mr. Limbaugh – because we will not celebrate hate speech, bigotry, and division. Lowering the flag should always reflect unity, not division, and raising our standards, not lowering them. Our flags will remain flying high to celebrate the American values of diversity, inclusion, and respect for all,” Fried said.
I will not lower the flags at my Department’s state offices for Rush Limbaugh. Lowering our flag should reflect unity, not division — and raising our standards, not lowering them. https://t.co/HqtzeoUHkr

Florida GOP State Rep. Anthony Sabatini tweeted that:
‘I believe the Florida Legislature should immediately convene in an emergency session and pass a law creating a uniform Flag policy and rid Commissioner @nikkifried of this authority—which is a gross abuse of power’

I love being a Floridian, while most of the rest of the nation is suffering in the cold, under defacto, so called Medical Martial Law, we are going about our lives and moral is returning to the state.
I encourage you all to move here … unless you are going to try to California my Florida, please don’t California my Florida … please.
