DeSantis Rips Leftist Judges Who Constantly Strike Down New Laws: ‘We Win On Appeal Almost Every Time’

 Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed judicial activists who continually strike down Florida laws that they don’t like only for their rulings to get continuously overturned by higher courts.

DeSantis made the remarks on Wednesday after federal Judge Robert Hinkle in Tallahassee, who is one of the left-wing judges who routinely strikes down bills that DeSantis signs into law, batted down Florida’s new law to protect minors from transgender procedures and treatments.

“It is wrong to perform a sex change on a 16 year old, you’re not allowed to get a tattoo, but somehow you can have your privates cut off? Give me a break,” DeSantis said. “This is wrong. And I would also say, this has already been decided by the 11th circuit court of appeals, they upheld Alabama’s law, which was almost identical to Florida’s law, this will be reversed. There’s no question it’ll be reversed.”

“Think about it, when the founding fathers were creating the Constitution, and when the first Congress passed the Bill of Rights or even when they passed the Reconstruction Amendments in the 1860s, do you think a single person involved in that thought that there was a constitutional right to do this genital mutilation? It’s ridiculous,” he continued. “Of course, a state can protect children against this. And we have very powerful testimony how this is irreversible.”

DeSantis said that leftist judges “veto the policy of the state of Florida” constantly and “we lose almost every time and then we win on appeal almost every time. That’s what happens.”

“So if you’re not willing to defend Florida’s duly enacted statutes against liberal jurisprudence, then you’re basically saying the people of Florida shouldn’t govern themselves,” he said. “And that we should just turn over our destiny to some trial judge somewhere. That I refuse to do, we are going to stand up for duly enacted statutes, we’re going to stand up for protecting the innocence of these kids. But I would say it goes beyond that. Because what this is doing, when they’re doing a sex change on a teenager, there’s a lot of people that want to make money off that, consequences be damned, they’re lying in their pockets and they could care less about what’s going to happen to that teenager when they become 25 — which many regret and have big time problems as a result of that.”


“But it’s also just a fact of, you use the term ‘gender affirming care’, which is what media uses and what the left uses,” he continued. “You’re not affirming that, you’re trying to change their basic biology, which you cannot do. You cannot do that. You know, how you’re born is what you are. And so I think it’s about are we going to be rooted in truth as a society or not? And if we’re rooted in truth, then you would say, of course, you can’t do the surgeries, because it’s not going to take and transform somebody that’s a male into a female. So we’ll win that appeal.”
