H/T to Ed Driscoll.
The governor is a leader in GOP efforts to create environments conducive to authoritarianism, from opposing Covid vaccination mandates to critical race theory fearmongering.
I’m reminded of a previous blog post where I said:
How does a government “force a free market”? A free market is one free of government interference! Force is required to have anything other than a free market.
And so it is in this case. That Governor DeSantis is opposing vaccination mandates is evidence that he is not an authoritarian. To claim he is autocratic and/or authoritarian is a lie.
