Rick Scott issues travel advisory for ‘socialists,’ warning Florida is ‘openly hostile’ to them

Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) issued what he described as a “formal travel advisory for socialists visiting Florida,” on Tuesday, warning that the state was “openly hostile” to socialists and their enablers.

“The state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by Socialists and others who work in the Biden Administration,” Scott, who is also the state’s former governor, said in a press release.

Let me be clear – any attempts to spread the oppression and poverty that Socialism always brings will be rebuffed by the people of Florida,” he added. “Travelers should be aware that attempts to spread Socialism in north Florida will fail and be met with laughter and mockery.”

Scott’s statement is a mocking response to recent travel issued by social justice groups declaring Florida an unsafe state for certain minority groups.

IMHO article is wrong, it was not mocking. While he does not have the power to do that the message of intimidation is loud and clear.

Well, at least he is honest. Southern conservatives can't have socialists bringing poverty to prosperous capitalist utopias like Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi or Arkansas. Socialists have almost no power in those states, and it's plain to see how much better off they are for it!
