Sen. Rick Scott Issues Florida "Travel Advisory" to "Socialists, Communists"

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Republican Sen. Rick Scott issued a formal travel advisory Tuesday warning the state of Florida is “openly hostile toward Socialists, Communists, and those that enable them.”

In an announcement, Scott said the advisory is in direct response to the Biden Administration’s “attempts to erase capitalism and the system that has brought prosperity to Florida.”

“Before traveling to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by Socialists and others who work in the Biden Administration,” the advisory states.

Scott added any attempts to spread the “oppression and poverty that Socialism always brings” would be rebuffed by Florida residents. The former governor turned senator said attempts to spread Socialism in north Florida would be met with “laughter and mockery.”

He added the situation would be “far more dangerous” in parts of Central and South Florida whose residents learn the “horrors of Socialism” from Cuban, Venezuelan, and other Central and South American immigrants.

The advisory comes days after the NAACP issued its own travel advisory for Florida, citing legislation surrounding AP African American Studies classes and other controversial legislation.

In an email to 8 On Your Side, the Governor’s Office called the NAACP’s travel advisory a “stunt,” referencing a response DeSantis made about previous travel warnings.

“We get involved in these stupid fights,” DeSantis said. “This is a stunt to try to do that. It’s a pure stunt. And fine, if you want to waste your time on a stunt, that’s fine.”

I never thought of Florida as a place in which I might want to socialize but maybe I’ll give it a whirl now that I know friendly they are.

More Republicans playing Opposite Day while not actually doing anything of substance.

Wonder how much money Republicans cost Florida with their abject hatred of tourists.

should someone tell him that the number of seniors and assisted-income people in the state are all, in fact, benefitting from socialism? They never consider this idea.

Scott is right to issue a warning. Only fascists, MAGAts, and traitors are welcome in Florida. Normal people should stay away.

Huh? He sounds confused - Florida IS a communist state.

Fine. Scare away the tourists. Who does he think is keeping Florida from going broke? The white trash on welfare in the panhandle? All Florida can offer is tourism and you fuck with that, Florida becomes Mississippi!

He looks like a white walker from GoT. Scott should die in a grease fire.

I hope a massive hurricane destroys the whole state this summer. Then we'll see how committed they are to keeping Biden's "socialism" out of the state. They'll be begging for and demanding "socialist" handouts paid for by the rest of us taxpayers. Biden should tell them to pull up their bootstraps and get to work rebuilding on their own.

Agree, R14. But Biden would never because he is a professional and actually cares about people even those who don't deserve it.

by Anonymousreply 15May 26, 2023 2:30 PM

You're right, R15. But when Biden hands out that federal aid to Florida in its time of need, I hope he makes it clear that the governor and the senator have seen the light and now agree that the government has a role to play when it comes to helping people that need help.

These people are the product of an inferior education system. It's a vicious circle: cut funding the schools, get stupid kids, the kids grow up to be dumbass bigots who believe in lies like these idiots, and then do more cutting of school budgets. That is the story of the South. One long descent into ignorance and madness. They don't know even know what terms like capitalism and socialism mean, let alone use them properly.

Secede, Florida. Secede.
