Governor orders flags flown at half-staff for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Press release from the Office of Governor Ron DeSantis

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Governor Ron DeSantis issued the following memorandum today:

On December 7, 1941, over two thousand American soldiers and civilians lost their lives and over one thousand were injured in the Japanese attack on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor. We remember the lives lost on that fateful day and honor the brave veterans of World War II who fought for our great nation.

I signed the attached Proclamation and hereby direct the flags of the United States and the State of Florida to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the State of Florida on Wednesday, December 7, 2022.

  • Because of those who made sacrifices we have the freedoms we have.

    At least one leader recognizes that.

  • We hold the veterans of WW II in the highest esteem. But remember, that war happened as a result of WW I, and Germany on the losing side. Ex-professor Woodrow Wilson created Hitler, who wouldn’t have existed had Germany and the other side won.
    The other side in WW I included the Ottoman Empire, which broke up a spawned the Mideast chaos ever since. So, there’d be no Hitler, no Israel, no PLO, no Arab oil cartel, no Islamic terrorists, etc today.
    Russia was on the “winning side” of WW I but the costs spawned the Bolsheviks and USSR, which wouldn’t have happened if Germany and other side won. Then they wouldn’t have Hitler and WW II later.
    All because Wilson took his eye off the Monroe Doctrine and put us into Europe, again. Then we became globalists, entered Asia and created the China and N. Korea menaces today. While Latin America struggles and our border is invaded with drugs and cheap labor.
    RINO-Dem globalists say “the grownups are back” after stealing 2020, now. Are we happy yet?
