(ConservativeStar.com) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) stood proud as he delivered the news that his state welcomed more than 117 million visitors in 2021. Not only is he pleased with the numbers, he’s also pleased that he gets to point out the hypocrisy of freedom-squelching Democrats.
DeSantis pointed out that politicians on the Left from all across the country made the “dangerous” trek to Florida, all the while telling their own constituents to stay home, put on a mask, and comply. He says Democrats are upset with his state for “treating people with respect and protecting their freedoms” yet they flock to his state anyway.

DeSantis pointed to big-city mayors and TV news personalities who went on record advocating for lockdowns and mandates and then headed south as though the same rules and restrictions shouldn’t apply to them. He added that people “vote with their feet,” and often don’t live up to their own set of standards.
Democratic hypocrites who made the list of visitors to the Sunshine State include New York’s own Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D), who is on the side of whatever the radical Left is currently doing; Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), whose draconian mandates earned her tens of thousands of protesters throughout the pandemic; and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont (D), who decided he wanted some sun and fun over Christmas break.
All of these visitors, including tens of thousands of tourists, helped spark Florida’s economy while others continued to remain stifled.
