Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) took to the Senate floor to speak on his support of law enforcement, which comes at a time when he’s also published an op-ed in support of law enforcement officers while also condemning rioters that have taken to the streets in recent months.
In the Fox News op-ed, the former Florida Governor cited a recent shooting involving two law enforcement officers, saying that he is mad when he hears rioters chanting “we hope they die” in response to the officers being shot in Los Angeles over the weekend.
Scott asserted, “I want all communities to. Be safe,” warning that “defunding the police will not make a single community safer.”
Calling it “a ludicrous proposal,” he admitted that his “plan is to fight to save our country.”
In calling for support to his cause from his colleagues, Scott noted that “we all have a responsibility to do our part to preserve what Reagan called ‘this last and greatest bastion of freedom.’”
In his Senate Speech, the Florida lawmaker shared the same sentiments, arguing that “the left has worked hard over the last 50 years to discredit the values of America.”
“What if our country turned the keys over to the far left and turned away from capitalism in favor of socialism?” Scott questioned. The answer? “Darkness.”
