Nazi demonstrators brandish Ron DeSantis 2024 signs outside of Disney World

The Governor is in Oklahoma for a political speech; we have reached out for comment.

Gov. Ron DeSantis is in Oklahoma delivering a political speech, but that doesn’t mean disturbing news isn’t happening closer to home.

Rep. Anna V. Eskamani tweeted on Saturday video of Nazi demonstrators outside of Disney World.

A second image, from Twitter user Shannon Watts, contends that “two dozen white supremacists are outside the main Disney World entrance in Orlando right now, marching with signs featuring Gov. DeSantis’s face, swastikas, the n-word and homophobic slurs.”

Florida Politics reached out to the Governor’s Office for comment.

DeSantis has had to address neo-Nazi demonstrations in Orlando before, including back in 2022 when group of neo-Nazis lined a bridge in eastern Orange County, hanging the swastika flag and banners — including a banner with the pro-Donald Trump slogan “Let’s Go Brandon” — and yelling profanities and antisemitic slurs at passing cars.

He was more concerned with Democrats talking about the issue in remarks after the fact.

“So what I’m going to say is these people, these Democrats who are trying to use this as some type of political issue to try to smear me as if I had something to do with it, we’re not playing their game,” DeSantis said back in 2022.

“Some jackasses doing this on the street, first of all, state law enforcement is going to hold them accountable because they were doing stuff on the overpass. So they’re absolutely going to do that, and they should do that,” DeSantis added before going back on the political counteroffensive.

“But I’m not going to have people try to smear me who belong to a political party that has elevated antisemites to the halls of Congress,” DeSantis said, singling out Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

In a tweet posted after the incident and later deleted, press secretary Christina Pushaw responded to Twitter outrage over the Orlando Nazi demonstration by asking, “Do we even know they’re Nazis?”

Pushaw then sought to clarify that statement. “I don’t know what you mean by ‘denying Nazis.’ I was referring to this event in VA, when a group of Democrats dressed up as White supremacists to discredit a (Glenn) Youngkin rally,” she told Florida Politics at the time.

Similar demonstrations including Nazi regalia and pro-DeSantis flags recurred in 2022.

    These are the kinds of people drawn to the anti-democratic types.. especially when they make false promises to “destroy the left” in the USA. You get all the cess and rot in society, the sub-apes, and the anti-government terrorists all of a sudden act like they care about main steam politics. No real leadership is forthcoming…they just keep on fanning the flames of hatred and division so try and gain votes. That’s not leadership. That’s selfishness and stupidity.

      Good morning America,
      Those “Dispicable Nazi” prostesters have proven to be dook 4 brains eff bee eye agents in disguise trying to smear The Ronald and The Donald.

      America, lets get real for a moment:

      Ya know what annoys me, Earl Pitts American? Well I, Earl Pitts American am about to tell you:

      Every RINO out there always qualifying their statements about the corrupt eff bee eye by saying stupid crap like this:
      “We are just disgusted at the corruption at the higest levels of the eff bee eye but”….(and here comes the part that whizzes me off)….”the the rank and file eff bee eye agents are all great hard working wonderfull Americans and BLA BLA BLA BLA”

      Are you RINO’s kidding???? The corruption in the eff bee eye has ran too long, too deep, and totally unchecked for decades.
      Honestly folks the time to stop with your dook 4 brains rank and file agents being great disclaimers passed many years ago STOP IT ALREADY.

      Now its just like saying “Well sure Hitler was a monster but the rank and file SS Agents were really great and wonderful people’.
      What idiot would say something like that about Hitler’s SS rank and file monsters? Nobody!!!
      So stop it already with the rank and file agents of the eff bee eye. The entire agency needs to be shut down while we decide what needs to be done about that former agency in the future.
      Thank you America,
      Earl Pitts American

        Five guys wearing “white shirts, khaki pants and sunglasses” from the Lincoln Project showed up at a Youngkin event. That’s not people in nazi uniforms waving swastika flags and carrying banners with nazi slogans. It’s not Democrats, either. It’s Republicans at another Republican’s event. So, no, that 100% did not happen. You can claim RINO or whatever, but that’s just more inner turmoil from the GOP.

      • Paul Kagan

        June 11, 2023 at 3:29 pm

        Well, that’s because the Lincoln Project is Conservatives who think the Trump GOP is off the rails. Any person of decency would agree.

      • Paul Kagan

        June 12, 2023 at 9:22 pm

        I would have to disagree. They are the old style Conservatives that used to be the backbone of the GOP, but would never get heard in today’s GOP.

    ……and so the DeSantis for President campaign season of hate begins. Today’s Nazi’s for DeSantis demonstration at the Disneyworld entrance included hateful bullhorn screaming of misogynistic and homophobic rants. Stay tuned! ….. after DeSantis announced yesterday that he would reinstate The Fort Bragg name to the military training center named after a miserable traitor confederate…..DeSantis, like Trump before him, has given a participatory voice to the lowest common denominator in American politics!

      They believe the GOP’s lies that the other types of hopeless poors are the reason why they’re so poor and hopeless.

      Newsflash, poors are poor because of the Ivy League guy brought in to be CEO at a rate of 80x (or more) the average pay rate of any company employee. Look at SYSCO Food Service for one current example from Texas. Look at ENRON for a previous example, again from Texas.

      Other newsflash, Ron DeSantis is an Ivy League guy.

        And Republican terrorists don’t wear uniforms when they are blowing up a building and killing over 100 people or attacking the capitol building and killing 5 police men.

        Kindly describe the laws that Biden has violated. The reason you Nazi Republicans can’t impeach Biden is because you have no evidence he violated any laws. Please continue wasting your time and spending your money trying to destroy Biden and the USA.

    DeSantis is reluctant to comment on this Disneyworld Nazi political rally because it’s not in his political self interest to disenfranchise his base.

    DeSantis doesn’t care if flocks of Disneyworld tourist ….. many of them children…..are exposed to such garbage Americans!

    Additionally “Mom’s For Liberty” have had 24 hours to make a statement…..Ho hum ….. all of this is predictable and expected.

    Trump passed the least amount of legislation than any president in history. Look up the FACTS. For years all he did was bitch about Obamacare, he did NOTHING about it. Democrats offered MORE than he was looking for for border a security budget and instead he wrote an executive order for 18 Billion to build a wall that CLEARLY DOESN’T WORK. HE DID LITERALLY NOTHING IN 4 YEARS other than shit on some of Obama’s policies which ANYONE who gets elected can do whenever they want. He said COVID would just go away. He gave Faucci a medal of freedom. You people are so insanely stupid. The worst thing about Trump is that he makes his supporters think that just because they have a right to open their mouths means they have something intelligent to say. None of you do, it’s always the same bullshit. No evidence, no proof, just words, words, words. Then complain like little babies when you get outsmarted by the left (so very unfair). You deserve it because you’re not just stupid, you’re completely weak, brainless sewage. Biden is going to win again and you should just hold yourselves responsible ahead or time rather than predictably resort to crying FRAUD when you lose again, like you always do, because you’re losers. I mean seriously, have you ever, EVER!!! stopped to consider, I mean REALLY REFLECT on the mythological levels stupid you people all are??? Rather than petitioning for REAL change, things you NEED for the future, you’re running cover for a blatant criminal who has done literally nothing for you and who the rest of the world despises. Think about it, you’re debating about whether or not the losers at Disney Flying NAZI flags are real or not and you don’t see how stupid that is? You should be pissed that’s happening regardless if they’re agents, antifa, MAGA or actual NAZIS. But no, because you’re you and you just love giving away all your freedoms and then crying about made-up, babbling words and phrases like a toddler. It’s the woke mob wahhhhhhhh. Trump won wahhhhhhhh. But Biden wahhhhhhh! Crooked HIllary waaaaaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s nauseating at this point.
