DeSantis Slams Biden For Removing Marxist Terrorist Group From Terror List

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to President Biden’s decision to remove a Marxist guerilla group U.S.’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.
A
statement from DeSantis’ office said it was a “reckless decision to remove the radically communist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) from the United States list of foreign terrorist organizations” because the group has, for decades, “perpetuated countless murders, bombings, assassinations, kidnapping and attacks under the guise of ‘redistributing wealth.’”

DeSantis said, “President Biden’s decision to remove the FARC from the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations will embolden terrorist groups throughout Latin America, empower narco-traffickers and pave the way for Castro-chavismo in Colombia.”

“Biden’s policy is an insult to members of the Colombian American community, many of whom fled that terrorist group’s barbaric attacks on civilians,” DeSantis continued. “This is a serious mistake by the Biden administration and will hurt Floridians. With this mind, my office will ascertain what policy measures our state can take to protect our residents from a resurgent FARC and other terrorist Marxist groups.”

“My administration stands squarely on the side of the millions of Floridians who want democracy, peace and freedom to endure in Colombia and against Joe Biden’s Castrochavista allies,” he added.

Lieutenant-Governor Jeanette Nuñez also criticized the move, saying, “There’s no such thing as a peace deal when you negotiate with terrorists. Removing the FARC from the U.S. list of foreign terrorist organizations not only undermines America’s interests and allies in the region but appeases despots like Maduro and Diaz-Canel.”
According to an exclusive
report from the Wall Street Journal, “The officials said the move could come no later than Nov. 30, coinciding with the five-year anniversary of the historic peace accord between then-President Juan Manuel Santos and rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. Negotiated with U.S. support, the agreement ended a 52-year-conflict and resulted in Mr. Santos winning the Nobel Peace Prize…”

“Colombian officials who spent four years negotiating with the FARC had been quietly pressing U.S. officials to drop the terrorist designation against the group,” the Wall Street Journal added. “By doing that, the U.S. recognizes the steps rebels took to transform their group into a political party, now called the Common People party, officials said.”

The news comes weeks after an Iranian-backed extremist group that Biden also removed from the U.S.’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations launched a missile attack on a mosque and a religions school that killed and injured 29 civilians.

The group, called Ansarallah, had been designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the Trump administration.

“If Ansarallah did not behave like a terrorist organization, we would not designate it as an FTO and SDGT,” Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo explained a statement.

“It has led a brutal campaign that has killed many people, continues to destabilize the region, and denies Yemenis a peaceful solution to the conflict in their country. Rather than distance itself from the Iranian regime, it has embraced the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism even more. Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has supplied Ansarallah with missiles, drones, and training, allowing the group to target airports and other critical infrastructure.”
