NextImg:Far-Left American Jewish Group Storms Stage During DeSantis Speech at N.H. Fundraiser

Governor Ron DeSantis was briefly interrupted in the middle of his speech at the Republican Party’s Amos Tuck fundraiser dinner in New Hampshire on Friday night. Protesters stormed the stage chanting, “Jews against DeSantis!”

The Florida governor was in the middle of section of his speech talking about upcoming “governor races, president races,” when two women tried to unfurl a banner emblazoned with “Ron Desantis: Loves Israel, Hates Jews” written in black on a banner before it was quickly ripped as they were escorted off the stage.

“You gotta have a little spice in the speech, right? I mean, you gotta have a little fun,” Governor DeSantis joked afterward to a chorus of raucous applause.

Although it was not clear at first who the protesters were, the organization IfNotNow, a progressive American Jewish group, claimed credit online explaining that the publicity stunt was a means of drawing attention to the Florida governor’s upcoming trip to Israel.

“IfNotNow members are confronting Ron DeSantis at a GOP fundraiser in New Hampshire this evening. We’re making clear that DeSantis is an antisemite whose actions and policies both support Israeli apartheid and put Jews in danger,” the group announced on its official Twitter account sharing a previously unseen recorded version of the events.

The thread went on to condemn “AIPAC and DeSantis” who “support occupation and apartheid at the expense of Jewish safety.” Conversely, “We believe in the opposite vision: where liberation for Jews and Palestinians are inextricably linked. We fight for equality, justice, and a thriving future for all Israelis and Palestinians,” the group claimed.

The New Hampshire Journal shared a photo of a packed conference room at the Double Tree Hilton in Manchester boasting that Governor DeSantis helped break the projection and bring in a total of $382,000.

As the protesters were removed from the conference room, DeSantis poked at them one final time.

“Why you’d want to pay the ticket to get in just to do that, I don’t know!”
