Florida GOP Sen. Rick Scott on Friday joined some of the Republican congressional conference's most conservative thought leaders onstage at CPAC Texas, warning the audience that the radical left is "the enemy within."

"Today we face the greatest danger we have ever faced," said Scott, whose public views about the future of the GOP has  recently increased his national profile. "The militant left-wing in our country has become the enemy within." 

"Now that's pretty dramatic," Scott acknowledged. "And here's why."

He argued the members of the country's most extreme left have seized control of the country's economy and culture and portrayed a dark vision of America today.

"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? 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." 

Scott also listed what he thinks are among the far left's top targets – patriotism, border security, gender, and free speech.
