Another ‘global warming’ heckler interrupts Ron DeSantis

NH DeSantis
The Governor continues to be a target of protests.

Ron DeSantis continues to be greeted by critics during his standard stump speeches.

In Nashua, New Hampshire, the Governor was again interrupted as he delivered remarks.

“You’re taking millions from oil and gas billionaires,” yelled a Generation Z activist as she sprinted across the stage.

DeSantis was relatively unruffled.

“It’s interesting. I’m sure there’s probably some of these others here. These people started coming in in Iowa and screaming, you know, about global warming when we were in the middle of a blizzard,” DeSantis quipped. “I’m like, you know, kind of pick your points here.”

The Governor’s campaign has already been fundraising off these interruptions.

He has had a variety of remarks ready for them.

“This is wrong with the college system right there. That’s Exhibit A,” DeSantis said during the aforementioned Iowa stop. “He was stumbling around to get his flag out. He telegraphed that a mile away.”

DeSantis suggested previous protesters either “bumrushed” or “were invited” into a Fox News town hall earlier in the week, where they also offered climate critiques.

A December event also was interrupted by a heckler.

The Governor was talking about how Florida “beat (Anthony) Fauci on COVID” when a woman began calling out about an alleged “sex offender” in public schools.

DeSantis told her to “stop it.”

“I’m not finished. I’m doing my thing,” DeSantis said.

The interruption lasted less than a minute, allowing DeSantis to talk about removing “(George) Soros prosecutors,” returning to his spiel.

In South Carolina, he was interrupted by someone from the crowd, who called him a “fucking fascist” and briefly derailed a rote speech.

“We’re not going to let you impose an agenda on our kids,” the Governor said. “We’re going to stand up for our kids. We’re going to make sure to do it right. That’s what we’re going to do, yeah!”

In Tega Cay, DeSantis dealt with LGBTQ activists, escorted out after unfurling a rainbow pride flag.

“We don’t want you indoctrinating our children!” DeSantis shouted, per the Post and Courier. “Leave those kids alone.”

Addressing the New Hampshire GOP at the Amos Tuck Dinner, the Governor dealt with some women storming the stage chanting “Jews against DeSantis.”

They were removed, with the Governor looking only briefly concerned before offering a quip to return proceedings to normalcy.

“You’ve got to have a little spice in the speech. You’ve got to have a little fun. Why do you want to pay the ticket for that, to get in? But different strokes for different folks,” DeSantis said.

    So what form of transportation did this “Global Warming” nut take to get to this event? Does this “Global Warming” fruitcake like to travel on airplanes and take cruises? If he is really all in and drives an EV, then s he aware of how his car is charged and where those precious minerals come from that are part of his battery. Where and how will that dead battery be disposed?

        I bet you drive a car too. Probably have some sort of credit card attached to an airline miles program. Take a cruise or two a year and keep your home nice and cool every Florida summer. Now go drink some more of the Demo Jumgle Juice. Even Botox Kerry got called out about his use of a carbon emitting private jet. Drink up zombie.

        Notably more doofus than babbling DeSSantis are his dullardly Fox-echo defenders.

    How did the soft activist get to the meeting? Did she take an Uber? Drive? Fly? How does she cook his food? Gas stove? Electric? Microwave? How many cell phones, chargers, lap tops and IPADs has she had that ended up in the trash? Another pathetic paid fool. Useless female. Weak. How embarrassing to be such a tool. Of all the things to shout, this is it? This is your contribution to life, liberty and the pursuit of justice? We have people crossing the border who want to kill other people, we have 4 year girls being sex trafficked, we have homeless vets dying in the streets, we have runaway teens overdosing in the streets of San Francisco, but yes, let’s play puppet and shout useless words into a crowd that mean nothing and won’t change anything or help anyone. CRINGE.

      The Dude approves the above message and is glad to see there are more free thinkers out there not influenced by the Facebook and Tik Tok zombies educated at FTU (Free Tuition University) Bernie Sanders disciples professors. Those profs can’t function in the real world so they hang out at Pot Smoking U peddling their distorted views. Please post more.
