Sen. Rick Scott Scorches Rioter In Brilliant Op-ed, This Will Make You Proud
Florida Senator Rick Scott delivered a damning and powerful message to liberal extremists on an Op-ed he wrote for FoxNews. Scott didn't mense his words and his message was clear- we will not hand our country over to violent rioters and elitists. Much of what Scott took aim at I think upsets most patriotic Americans who love this great nation. I believe his words and his promise to fight against injustice will make you proud.
Scott began, "I am mad that rioters think they can burn and trash businesses and property of hard-working Americans. The government buildings burned were paid for with our taxes. Business owners have put in long hours trying to make a living and support their employees and their families. No one has a right to burn or trash our businesses."
"I am mad when I hear rioters chant "Death to America.” These are the same chants you hear in Iran," Scott adds.
He continues, "I am mad when I hear rioters chant “We hope they die” after two law enforcement officers were ambushed and shot in Los Angeles last weekend. I am mad that rioters are barging into restaurants and demanding we support their political point of view. How dare they interrupt celebrations, terrorize seniors, and hurt struggling businesses."
Scott wrote, "I am mad when rioters try to tear down monuments of our Founding Fathers. Were our founders perfect? Of course not. Neither are we. Our goal should be to improve, not be perfect. I am not perfect and neither are you."
"If you commit crimes against others, you should be punished to the full extent of the law. It appears the rioters have no plan or clear agenda; they simply want to tear down our country. That will not happen!" Scott declares.
Sen. Scott goes on to talk about America's history and his promise to protect the values of the American way of life:
"I am proud of this country. We were the first country in the history of the world to try governance of, by, and for the people. No other country has done more to promote individual freedom than this country. No one.
Growing up I was proud to read about our fight for independence, our fight to end slavery, and our fight to save Europe, twice.
I thanked God I grew up in this country. I still do."
Scott concludes, "I am mad and my plan is to fight to save our country. There is no Plan B. There is no place to move to. We all have a responsibility to do our part to preserve what President Ronald Reagan called “this last and greatest bastion of freedom.”
"We will not surrender America to fascist punks or woke elitists who despise everything we stand for. It will not happen," the Senator promises.
