Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made a wide-ranging speech Wednesday in which he stressed the need for social conservatives to fight “contaminated” trucks and his position on locking up during the coronavirus epidemic.
Speaking at a religious freedom summit organized by the Alliance for the Defense of Freedom (ADF), he stressed that politicians should do more than adopt a checklist of conservative positions. He said they need to have a backbone and so on to be ready to stand on these things when it’s hard, when the lights get hot, when people throw things at you and they want to pollute you. also where I think the rubber is on the road. “
The ADF is a conservative law firm known for its high-profile cases on religious freedom in the Supreme Court, including a dispute over a Christian florist who refused to serve a same-sex wedding ceremony.

After the Supreme Court’s term expired, the court refused to consider the case and lost some hope. Although the Conservatives saw some victories in the final term of the trial, many criticized the court for not continuing its fight for religious freedom – DeSantis repeated in his speech.
“I have to say that even judges – usually judges of this third article – need to show a little courage and do the right thing,” he said. Justice Neil Gorsuch used the same language to criticize his colleagues’ decision not to use the decision to overturn the precedent of religious freedom against Philadelphia against Fulton.
“You have to see things that are important to this country,” DeSantis added. “You have to be prepared to address legislative issues that have a serious impact on people’s freedoms and constitutional freedoms.”

He was probably referring, among other things, to the florist’s plight in “Arlene’s Flowers vs. Washington,” represented by ADF florist Barronelle Stutzman. The three dissidents in that case – Judges Alito, Roberts, and Thomas – would probably only need one of the other judges to vote to hear the case.
“You shouldn’t look at it through a political lens because you don’t want to make a decision because you’re worried about some blows or you’re worried about what the media is saying or you’re worried about all of these alien factors,” DeSantis Roberts ’decisions said. focusing on the general idea about.
“You swear to uphold and defend the Constitution, and you must be ready to do it without fear and without good, and you must be determined and do the work. Refusal to rule properly or even the fear of any alien consequences is cowardice, and we cannot have cowardly people at this time in our history. “
In recent months, the Florida governor has developed headlines for his bold stance on issues such as critical racing theory and women’s sports, and has been praised by conservatives. DeSantis, who was widely seen as a front-runner for the 2024 Republican primary, used Wednesday’s speech to portray himself as a unique figure among Republicans fighting cultural wars.

DeSantis added that “academic circles, corporate media, big technology, big business – they all accept the left at different levels, have awakened in terms of what they want to see”.
“Most of them are absolutely hostile to any conservative values or traditional principles. It’s obvious, of course. You know, it’s an entry point. If you’re a truth-teller, in many ways, face the wrath of these institutions.” The media will almost try to slander you, Big Tech may censor you, and big business may even try to boycott you, boycott your state, boycott your jurisdiction, but be prepared to put up with what you need. ”

DeSantis also drew on the controversy of transgender athletes, saying, “You see these female athletes, they acted well and then they left the competition because you had two men who would beat them or some other one. things. “
“And it’s fundamentally unfair, it’s discriminating against female athletes, forcing them to treat male athletes. It’s just the bottom line,” he added with applause.
Governor Biden’s coronavirus adviser, Anthony Faucini, was sharply targeted.
Fausi, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has received much praise from Democrats. President Biden said he had “a lot of confidence” in a senior health official, who has also won many awards for his work. Conservatives, however, have criticized Fauci’s approach to locking and sometimes wearing a mask.
“When people [ask] What did you do in Florida? “said DeSantis.” I will give a very short and clear answer: Florida chose freedom instead of fauci-noun. I didn’t want to allow the state to give Fauci’d, ”he added.
