Recently Florida Governor candidate Andrew Gillum beat around the bush abut his signed freedom pledge to radical anti-law enforcement group Dream Defenders.
Not only did Gillum sign the pledge in question, he has evidenced a close personal and professional relationship with Dream Defenders, the group that promoted the pledge. Gillum has talked about aiding the group’s activism and written in strong support of Dream Defenders and its co-founder, Phillip Agnew. In turn, Agnew himself recently described a long and close working and personal relationship with Gillum and said he considers Gillum to be “part of the movement.”
PolitiFact noted that Dream Defenders confirmed Gillum signed the pledge:
Gillum signed a Dream Defenders Freedom Papers elected officials pledge in June 2018, along with three other Democratic gubernatorial candidates, according to Dream Defenders spokeswoman Nailah Summers. Summers said 30 Florida politicians have signed the pledge.
At FloridaPolitics.com, Jacob Ogles wrote, “Actually, yes, Andrew Gillum signed a Dream Defenders pledge.” The pledge contains specific language stating “I pledge my support to the Freedom Papers.” The “Freedom Papers,” in turn, exclaim that “police and prisons have no place in justice.”
The “Freedom Papers” also advocate textbook socialist principals such as claiming that “by virtue of being born each of us has the absolute right to adequate food, shelter, clothing, water, healthcare, effective public transportation, dignified work, living wages.”
