WASHINGTON — This week, Florida Republicans ludicrously claimed that when Democratic legislators in Florida staged a sit-in on the House floor to protest Republican Governor Ron Desantis’ proposed redistricting maps, they were “staging an insurrection” that was “far worse than what happened on January 6.”

SHOT: Florida House Republicans compare a Democratic protest against redistricting to the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol

CHASER: Last year, Florida Republicans passed a law granting civil immunity to drivers who ram into protesting crowds, regardless of resulting injuries or death. Clearly, the GOP understands the importance of exercising your constitutionally protected right to protest.
