As the election campaigning gets underway ridiculously early (seems wrong that these people get to take a year and a half off neglecting their duties in order to campaign, but that’s another topic), we might as well have a thread about one of the most evil and dangerous candidates.
Here he is publicly announcing his plan for a Night of the Long Knives:
The governor also vowed tougher action against Mexican drug cartels, saying: “At the border they’re going to be shot stone cold dead.”
What’s a little concerning is that, while he currently seems to stand little chance of getting the Republican nomination vs. Trump, with Trump in so much legal trouble, there’s a possibility that he might get it by default. And as much as we’d love to see Trump take a hit, that is a little terrifying.
Why do people hate other people so damned much?
The GOP is the Party of Hatred. They hate everybody, including each other if there aren’t enough external enemies to keep them busy.
Good question… it seems to be a combination for wanting to blame others for the state of the world, to feel better about themselves by punching down, and self-loathing of some kind.
But they also have tax cuts, so that’s why REAL Americans keep voting for them!
He’s like an over-compensating Rodrigo Duterte.
As if, this guy is full-on fascist. The DOJ needed to step in as soon as he picked a fight with The Mouse, and that was before the *blatantly unconstitutional" legislation.
Uh, yeah - this sounds like a death-knell for his campaign.
Plus, according to my wild and weird theory of Presidential surnames, his is still too ethnic.
However, the DeSantis family that my dad knew ran a funeral home and were good people.
Right wing want winning optics to Reagan Reanimate.
Fuck 'em if they stay connected.
A dictator purging the ranks of those who aren’t loyally licking his boots? How unusual.
I wonder if the schools in Florida are allowed to teach enough history for people there to recognize that.
I don’t understand how half of what that fasschole does is even legal, and then I remember… oh, yeah; it’s the white supremacy.
And I’m sure DeSantis is happy about that. I’m sure he loves the “poorly educated” too.
Nazi Germany had that problem in the late 1930’s. Of course, that’s precisely the type of society DeSantis wants.
