Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Draws Up Strong Anti-Riot Legislation in Expansion of Stand Your Ground Law




Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis is looking to expand his state’s Stand Your Ground law with specific anti-mob legislation, according to the Miami Herald.

The Miami Herald’s report is negative and critical in tone, but it does mention that Governor DeSantis is simply following up on his promise to crack down on mob violence.

He has proposed expanding, to quote the Herald, “the list of ‘forcible felonies’ under Florida’s self-defense law to justify the use of force against people who engage in criminal mischief that results in the ‘interruption or impairment’ of a business, and looting, which the draft defines as a burglary within 500 feet of a ‘violent or disorderly assembly.'”

DeSantis’ proposal would also make it a third-degree felony to block traffic while protesting, offer immunity to drivers who unintentionally hurt or kill a protester who blocks traffic, and allow the state of Florida to withhold funds from locales that cut police budgets.

Anti-Lockdown Protests Heat Up in Spain After Government Extends State of Emergency

A Sign of What’s to Come in the U.S.?



Last weekend ZeroHedge reported on growing unrest taking place in Spain on October 31, 2020 when the Spanish government decided to extend a six-month state of emergency as a response to the second wave of the Wuhan virus pandemic.

Anti-lockdown protesters took to the streets of Madrid and Barcelona that same night. Reports of at least 32 people were arrested and 12 others suffered injuries when the protests took a violent turn in Madrid. According to RT News, other protests took place in Malaga, Vitoria, Valencia, Santander, and Burgos.

Spain’s prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, urged the Spanish public to remain calm while the protests became increasingly violent. Sanchez tweeted:

“Only from responsibility, unity, and sacrifice will we be able to defeat the pandemic that devastates all countries. Violent and irrational behavior by minority groups is intolerable. It is not the way.”

The extension of the national state of emergency order came about during a time when Wuhan virus infection cases began surging in Spain.

RT News stated, “protesters clashed with police in the capital city of Madrid, vandalizing ATMs, as well as breaking and burning trash cans in the city center.”

In Barcelona, anti-lockdown protesters were infuriated about the national curfew and how it has negatively impacted the economy.

Spain is one of the European countries most impacted by the Wuhan virus. Tensions are rising across other European states as the case counts steadily climb and other countries respond with their respective lockdown policies.

Such developments should worry Americans due to the fact that a Biden administration would be very enthusiastic about pursuing a draconian lockdown policy. Under a Biden presidency, it’s very likely that the U.S. would abandon its current federalist approach to the lockdowns and instead adopt a total police state manner of handling this pandemic.

Americans would be wise to not fall for the Democrats’ snake oil on November 3.
