#DeSatan tickets started at $50 a pop to have a beer with DeFuhrer, but even when the campaign lowered the cost to $1 to puff up attendance they could only get 30 people who were willing to put themselves through the trauma. Next time they should try tying a pork chop around the sonofabitch's neck. #desantisisafascist #desantisfornothing2024
Did the enslaved learn useful skills?
Well, Frederick Douglass taught himself to read and write, thereby violating the law and earning stripes on his back.
Many slaves learned truck gardening because their owners didn’t want to buy food to sustain them.
Slaves learned how to care for livestock, again to feed themselves and to provide additional profit for their owners.
Context is everything but Florida has banned relevant context.
Inside baseball on how Desantis can turn things around, what to do to appeal to such and such voters, historical comparisons, blah, blah, blah.
Just a reminder for those put off by Ron DeSantis' recent atrocities that he was hating the environment long before any of that. HB 919 is almost two years old. In it, he prohibited any municipality from restricting the choices energy utilities make in what type of energy they produce. Prior to this giveaway to the natural gas industry, cities like Orlando and Tallahassee had announced plans for carbon neutrality. #DeSatan #DeSantisIsAFascist #DeSantisDestroysFlorida #Climate #ClimateCrisis
#DeSantis is terrified of facing #Disney in federal court, so he's desperately trying to stack the deck in his favor by claiming the assigned #judge is biased against him. DeSantis doesn't believe a judge should be able to contradict him or his policies. He believes his #power is absolute, and beyond the judgement of the #judiciary.

If DeSantis keeps on ruling Florida like a dictator, I wouldn’t be too upset if Disney flipped him the🖕 & left the state. I sure there are other states that would gladly take the revenues Disney could bring in. DeSantis would be responsible for loosing 77,000 jobs & $1.1B in lost taxes. DeSantis is a bully. The only way to make a bully stop picking on you is to head butt them on the bridge of their nose. They’ll keep picking on you until you fight back. #IHateBullies #DeSantisIsAFascist
What the federal government and private insurers should do is remove Florida from their coverage pool, thereby jacking up the health care costs of the state.
Umm... Can DeSantis' racial agenda get more obvious? Blacks, get out, Spanish speakers, out. We're making room for better coloreds.

The Daily Kos referred to DeSatan as a "plastic dress-up doll." But that's unfair. He doesn't have the good looks of a Ken doll. Or the charisma.

"The softened version of the bills now punish only those people who transport migrants into Florida, not in and around the state itself, and makes no mention of housing or concealing."
Soooo, can we expect to see DeSatan arrested when he flies another planeload of undocumented immigrants from Texas into Florida before carting them off to Martha's Vineyard? #desantisdestroysflorida #desantisisafascist
DeSatan is a creepy fucking weirdo. And Floridians were stupid for giving him power. #desantisisafascist
Oh, my white fragility!! This might offend me! It burns my eyes and pierces my eardrums to learn about history. I think I have the vapors. Quick Jeeves, hand me a mint julep and fan me!
The fundamentalist blacklist in #Florida #DeSantisIsAFascist
Bravo to Barnes & Noble @BNBuzz, which in Florida stores highlights books that the sanctimonious and freedom-hating Governor Ron DeSantis and his crew seek to ban in public schools.

It's such a temptation but to me calling out Republican hypocrisy is such a losing game at this point as they are fully bad faith actors with absolutely no sense of shame. I think merciless ridicule is a more effective tactic.
And also, #DeSantisIsAFascist
I’ve noticed a theme with these pro DeSantis columns. The headline is always some twisted phraseology that you have to read several times to make sense of. I think I could’ve done this one better:
DeSantis lacks a soul. His critics lack enough synonyms for ‘asshole’
DeSantis lacks moral clarity on Ukraine. His critics lack prudence.
I read this twice and still can’t make sense of the tortured logic. The only thing that’s clear is that the author really likes DeSantis’ BS.
I’d also like to note that #DeSantisIsAFascist
Did Ron DeSantis really flip-flop on Russia and Ukraine?

"Stand for Freedom" is a statewide movement and walkout scheduled for noon on Thursday across Florida college campuses. Participants in the movement and walkout are calling on the DeSantis administration to restore diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in colleges and universities. #DeSantisIsAFascist
I'm frankly shocked that the ACLU didn't have a couple dozen plaintiffs ready and the paperwork pre-prepared. This has been coming from the racist, anti-science bastard for a while now.
