Never one to permit outside forces dictate what goes on in his state, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has let it be known that the the policies of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and other globalist influences are utterly unwelcome in Florida, as Katie Pavlich of Townhall.com reports.
The governor’s remarks took on notable relevance as leaders from around the globe converged in Bali at the G20 Summit, an event which yielded some particularly egregious observations from WEF founder and executive chairman Klaus Schwab.
“Deep systemic restructuring”
Prompting DeSantis’ take was Schwab’s assertion that the world is poised for a “deep systemic restructuring” and his declaration that “the world will look differently after we have gone through this transition process.” WATCH:

Schwab’s commentary came during a speech he delivered at the so-called B20, an event that runs concurrently to the G20 and which includes addresses from a roster of global business leaders, according to Newsweek.
“Dead on arrival”
DeSantis, however, is having none of Schwab’s proclamations about the future of the global order, stating flatly, “Things like the World Economic Forum: those policies are dead on arrival in the state of Florida.” WATCH:

“I want to have the values not of Davos imposed on us, but of places like Destin and Dunedin, where I grew up,” said DeSantis.
The governor has been a frequent critic of the globalist influences of figures such as Schwab, billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates, and others, and has not hesitated to articulate the threat he believes they pose to the economy and the broader societal order.
In a Twitter video released by the governor earlier this year, DeSantis blasted the concept of so-called Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards that globalist interests seek to impose on corporations, characterizing them as an attempt to “impose, through the economy, an ideological agenda that could not win at the ballot box.”
DeSantis’ opposition to WEF-style edicts is more important than ever, considering that just last week, President Joe Biden signaled his acceptance of a communique of understanding among G20 nations meant to “build on the success” of vaccine passport systems implemented during the pandemic, underscoring the left’s apparent eagerness to join in Schwab’s larger vision.
Though it remains to be seen whether DeSantis plans to throw his hat into the presidential ring for the 2024 cycle, millions of Americans already appreciate his willingness to take a strong stand against the globalists and their openly stated plans to bring about “great reset” of the world’s economy and society.
