Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said that he would be keeping an eye on the woke corporations in his state after a meeting with the Florida State Board of Administrations.
DeSantis said, “When faced with Chinese censure, these huge corporations censor what the CCP wants them to suppress, and we witness groveling apologies.”
Anyone in the free world who would suck up to China tells you that people in the US sympathize with Communism. That’s not a great look for the free world.
DeSantis tasked Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Attorney General Ashley Moody to “revoke all proxy voting authority granted to outside fund managers, clarify the state’s expectation that all fund managers act solely in the financial interest of the state’s funds, and conduct a survey of all of the Florida Retirement System’s investments to determine how many assets the state has in Chinese companies.”
Put short, DeSantis isn’t messing around with China, and he’s going to prove it. With less investment in Chinese companies, the economy will begin to see the ramifications of their actions and human rights violations.
Patronis noted that between the COVID-19 pandemic and the supply chain issues, China had been a fundamental part of the breakdown of the US economy and how China has been buying influence in Hollywood, California, and Washington, DC over the last several years, making them a prominent investor in movies and politicians.
DeSantis has already placed Ben and Jerry’s parent company Unilever in hot water because of their antisemite views. DeSantis put the company on the States List of Scrutinized Companies that Boycott Israel.
This move officially makes Florida the most American state in the entire country. Florida is going against a whole country, and Biden is still the weakest president we’ve had in a very long time.
Where your money goes matters, funding communist regimes isn’t in any American values and doesn’t have a place anywhere in American society. Not only does Communism destroy countries, but the Chinese Communist Party has put in place concentration camps of Uyghur Muslims and used them for slave labor to make products.
Biden’s idea of moving back to buying American isn’t working out. It has turned out to be another lie that Biden told on the campaign trail, and if you were honest with yourself, you already knew that. The COVID-19 vaccine mandate is threatening Americans’ jobs, and raising taxes on the top 1% will prove to be disastrous to middle and low-class citizens.
