A Democratic nominee for Congress interrupted a live event Thursday night with BlazeTV host Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in Orlando, Fla., calling for action on gun violence.
Maxwell Alejandro Frost, a March for the organizer of Our Lives running for the Democratic nomination in Florida’s 10th congressional district stood up and yelled at DeSantis as he spoke onstage at The Plaza Live, shouting, “Floridians are dying!”
The governor was in the middle of an interview with Rubin, who was hosting the event as part of his book tour for Don’t Burn This Country, a book that “woke up” left-wing politics and called for “Americans to live life.” freest life possible.”
“Governor DeSantis, we lose 100 people to gun violence every day,” Frost said. “We need measures against gun violence!”
A video the contestant shared on Twitter shows security personnel escorting him off the stage and out of the room.
“Hey buddy, nobody wants to hear from you,” DeSantis said as Frost left while the audience booed at the interruption.
“Just asked @GovRonDeSantis to take action against gun violence so we can save lives. That we’re losing 100 people a day,” Frost tweeted Thursday. “His answer? ‘No one wants to hear from you!’ We’re dying and our governor is too busy helping @RubinReport make money.”
Rubin responded on Twitter, noting that Frost “didn’t ask the governor anything.”
“He/him/his butt stormed onto the stage at a sold-out event and started screaming. The whole night was about freedom and liberty. Maybe find something better to protest against. But either way, thanks for buying the ticket!” said Rubin.
Other Democratic activists planning protests at the event interrupted DeSantis and Rubin to make calls for gun control. Business Insider Reports.
A producer from Rubin’s BlazeTV show said there were more than six interruptions throughout the night. Videos posted to social media show activists yelling at the governor, asking, “Why don’t you take care of my life?”
Anti-gun activists have feverishly campaigned for gun control after two mass shootings at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, and a hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
DeSantis, who is running for re-election, isn’t the only GOP official being harassed by left-wing candidates over the gun issue. Last week in Texas, Democrat Beto O’Rourke disrupted a news conference about the Uvalde shooting held by Gov. Gregg Abbott (R) and called for new gun control laws.
Earlier Thursday, Rubin had welcomed peaceful protests against his event, provided they did not “interfere” with the proceedings. After all was said and done, he brushed aside the objections.
“They came. They yelled about a lot of stuff unrelated to the event and they escorted them out,” Rubin told TheBlaze.
