(PatriotWise.com)- After attempting to address a crowd of leftist protestors in Florida, Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) was screamed down and chased away by the demonstrators.
One sign read: “One term Ron! Bitch, that’s it.”
The demonstrators were waving pro-abortion rights placards while opposing Republican Governor Ron DeSantis (R).
Crist was governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011. He is presently seeking to unseat Governor DeSantis. In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Crist, a former Republican, has been the center of controversy due to his views on abortion.
We call your bluff, Democrats! Some protestors followed Crist to his car as he fled, while others yelled, “Voting blue is not enough. The crowd did not reciprocate the congressman’s attempts to make pleasantries and hand waves with them.
According to Creative Loafing, Tampa Bay writer Justin Garcia shared a video from the women’s rights march on Twitter. Garcia questioned the former governor about what had transpired as he followed Crist to his car.
As he rolled up his window, Crist stated, “Everybody needs help, and I’m here to help.”
The Crist incident was also captured on camera by WUSF Media journalist Stephanie Colombini, who revealed that the protestors were marching in Tampa against a Moms for Liberty event. They apparently turned down Democratic state senator Janet Cruz as well.
In 2010, Crist stated that he would uphold “pro-life legislative attempts,” demonstrating his previous pro-life stance. What has changed since then?
Jim DeFede asked Crist that question in May.
His answer was, “Nothing.” A blatant lie.
At his core, Crist is a slime that simply seeks a winnable election as a way of paid employment. He has no moral foundation.
Crist continued by stating that he supports the right to an abortion and that it is his crucial campaign topic.
Crist’s message that has been pinned to the top of Twitter states: “On my first day as governor, I will issue an Executive Order to defend reproductive freedom in Florida.”
Nikki Fried, the agriculture commissioner for Florida, is running for governor alongside DeSantis and has taken advantage of the ambiguity surrounding Crist’s position on abortion by portraying him as a pro-life candidate in a recent advertisement.
