Senator calls Democrats’ left wing ‘the enemy within’

America’s far left has taken control of the Democratic Party, becoming an “enemy within” that has transformed the United States into an unrecognizable country, said Republican Sen. Rick Scott of Florida on Friday.

“Today we face the greatest danger we have ever faced,” said Scott in a speech at the Dallas, Texas, meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference, known as CPAC.

“The militant left-wing in our country has become the enemy within,” he said in remarks reported by Just the News.

Scott, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, acknowledged that his statement is “pretty dramatic.”

He argued the left, with outsized influence on the economy and culture, is portraying a dark vision of America as it targets patriotism, border security, gender and free speech.

“When you turn on the news at night, do you even recognize the country you see?” he asked.

“Are you worried for your family? Are you worried for your freedoms?

Scott said the “woke left now controls the Democrat Party, the entire federal government, the news media, academia, big tech, Hollywood, most corporate board rooms, and now even some of our top military leaders.”

“They are working hard to redefine our country,” he said.

In May, Scott spotlighted the Biden administration’s proposed amendments to World Health Organization regulations that would give the U.N. agency’s director-general unilateral authority to declare a health emergency in the United States.

The WHO, the senator wrote on Twitter, “has served as a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party & helped Communist China cover up info on COVID-19.”

“The Biden admin must NOT give this sham of a health agency national sovereignty over the U.S. & control over Americans’ lives & health.”
