This weekend, a DeSantis campaign staffer retweeted a video featuring Ron DeSantis looming over neo-Nazi imagery. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:

“This is just who he is,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “Ron has been given every chance to denounce neo-Nazis and what they stand for, and he refuses to do it. His administration has already attempted to rewrite the history books on slavery — is the Holocaust next?

“In high school, I visited Auschwitz on the March of the Living. I stood at the site of one of the darkest atrocities in human history, and I wondered how anyone could have stood by while Hitler rounded up and murdered the Jewish people. My people. Almost 80 years later, neo-Nazi propaganda is being mainstreamed by the modern Republican Party.

“DeSantis and Republican leadership haven’t just allowed neo-Nazism to flourish in their party, they’ve legitimized it. This is the United States of America, not Nazi Germany, and Americans everywhere — Democrats, Republicans, and everyone in between — should be asking themselves if their elected officials are doing everything they can to keep it that way.”
