Lovable simple-minded fictional character Forrest Gump once shared a bit of wisdom handed to him by his dearly beloved mama when he said, “stupid is as stupid does,” and what one environmental activist did during a speech being delivered by GOP presidential candidate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is an example of this phrase in action. I seriously wonder what in the world possesses these knuckleheads to do stuff like this.
According to the Western Journal:
One environmental activist got more than he bargained for after attempting to rush the stage at a Ron DeSantis campaign event on Thursday. The protester was caught approaching DeSantis as he gave a speech in Ames, Iowa, according to NBC News. A security guard quickly moved in and slammed him to the floor.
The takedown happened so fast that the man barely got a chance to hold up his banner, which read, “DeSantis: Climate Criminal.”
“Ron DeSantis is a climate criminal! How much money are you taking from oil companies?” the protester screamed as he was tossed off the premises. This guy is such a moron it’s actually painful to watch him get owned like this. I mean, I sort of feel second hand embarrassment for him.
DeSantis took the opportunity to point the finger at the radicalization of the university system for producing people like the wackadoo activist.
“This is [what’s] wrong with the college system right there,” DeSantis went on say to burst of cheers from the audience. “That’s Exhibit A.”
“I don’t know if they infiltrated or were welcomed to do that, but they were there and they tried to bum-rush the stage there and they got taken down,” DeSantis stated on Thursday after the protester was promptly dealt with by security.
Earlier in the event, another anti-oil demonstrator had interrupted DeSantis’ speech by yelling about climate change.
“You’re being rude,” DeSantis told the man. “I know you have an agenda. Stop!”
The protester was dragged out of the room by security, according to the Mail.
“This guy … wants you to pay more for gas, more for energy, he wants rolling blackouts in this country,” DeSantis followed up. “We’re not going to let people like that win. We’re going to make sure we’re energy-independent in this country.”
Another crazed environmentalist was booted from the event. Can you believe the amount of insanity that is taking over the younger generation? This is what happens when you stick an impressionable kid into the public school system for 12 years plus. You can’t send your kid for over 40 hours a week to Ceasar and not expect him to come home a Roman, as Pastor Voddie Baucham once said.
DeSantis is polling just behind former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in Iowa ahead of the caucuses there on Monday. Former President Donald Trump, meanwhile, maintains a 35-point lead.
While DeSantis has a strong track record of doing awesome things in Florida and keeping his campaign promises, he’s still way beyond Trump in the polls, so I’m not sold he has much of a chance of being the nominee.
