Governor Ron DeSantis and the rest of the state of Florida are taking aim at communism, promising to take action against communist China and the “woke corporations” operating in the state.
DeSantis claimed that Florida will investigate its holdings in Chinese companies and “retake control of its shareholder proxy voting from ideology-crazed investment funds.”
Ron DeSantis came out with the announcement right after conducting a meeting with two other high-ranking Floridians, Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Attorney General Ashley Moody. The three make up Florida’s Board of Trustees and have final oversight over the State Board of Administration (SBA).
The SBA includes two chief officials and more than 200 professional investment and administrative support staff.
“Florida would like to see more production and manufacturing re-shored and we would be a great place to do that,” DeSantis said. “Those in corporate America who prop up a genocidal, authoritarian, imperialist regime that they will not do so with Floridians’ money.”
