DeSantis responds in force to NAACP’s Florida travel advisory: ‘A total farce’

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized the NAACP Wednesday evening for issuing a travel advisory this week warning Black Americans against visiting his state. “The good news is fewer and fewer Americans are gullible enough to believe this drivel and platforms like Twitter are there where people can debunk these lies in real time,” DeSantis continued Wednesday.

“I would just say, as an American citizen, if you are uncritically accepting narratives spun by legacy media and left-wing groups, you’re failing at your job of being a conscientious citizen.”

“I think people just see right through it,” he added.”By the way, have any of these travel advisories —because they’ve been doing this for a while, these left wing groups — have any of them worked? Well, we’re the number one state for net in-migration and have been every year since I’ve been governor. We just capped the highest quarter for tourism in the history of the state of Florida.”
