Joy Reid Says DeSantis’ Warning to Potential Looters is a Racist Threat from ‘Segregationist’

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned potential looters to beware because Florida is a Second Amendment state.

Hurricane Ian made landfall on Florida’s west coast on Wednesday as a category 4 storm.

The eye of the storm hit Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Punta Gorda Wednesday with maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour.

Governor DeSantis described the damage as that of a 500-year flood after a 9+ foot surge in Fort Myers.

Looting has been a big concern for those in areas facing severe damage from Hurricane Ian.

“We are a law and order state, and this is a law and order community,” DeSantis said while speaking at a press conference in Fort Myers on Friday. “So do not think that you’re going to take advantage of people who’ve suffered misery.”

“Don’t even think about looting,” DeSantis said later.

“I can tell you in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home,” DeSantis said. “And I would not want to chance that if I were you — given that we’re a Second Amendment state.”

Joy Reid lashed out at DeSantis.

“When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”—segregationist Miami sheriff Walter E. Headley, 1967,” MSNBC host Joy Reid said. “Didn’t take DeSantis long to return to form.”

Apparently Joy Reid thinks only black people loot?
