I guess we have to take a win when we get one.
But this only shows 4 of the 9 Supremes are saying a state legislature eliminating the black vote is okey dokey with them.
FWIW, here in Florida, DeSantis pushed through a map removing the only black district in the State.

Troy with @MeidasTouch shows a video of a #Florida Republican state rep and farm owner telling undocumented immigrants that #DeSantis’ new anti-immigration law is toothless and only meant to scare away new immigrants because all their laborers are fleeing the state.
I honestly can’t decide if it’s better or worse if he’s lying. But this is just part of the far-right cosplay that DeSantis has taken too literally. Now they’re finding out that words have consequences.

Let's see if #DeSantis campaigns in California or if he conspicuously avoids it the way fucking #Kissinger avoids his feet touching dirt in any country in the EU because he knows he'll be arrested and frogmarched (however figuratively) right to the fucking Hague.
Because, again NOT hyperbolically, any state AG doing their fucking job should be consulting with appropriate federal authorities right now as to how to rendition the governor of Florida and any of his giggling shitty-suit-bedecked master-race-y accessories to a jurisdiction where they are genuinely subject to American law.
I'm not speaking hyperbolically when I say #Desantis and every miserable skiving little Klandroid piece of shit in his administration involved in this needs to be arrested and prosecuted to fullest extent of the law and locked away from normal human beings and it needs to happen right fucking now.

Ron DeSantis has fallen short of the early hype.
His presidential announcement was a dud.
He's still working to connect with voters.

Also: “The data shows #DeSantis has a major unfavorable rating from those aged 18-34 … and the Hispanic/Latino population (68 percent).”
The fact that only 68% of Hispanics disapproved is just… interesting 🤔

Mike Pence is a radical religious bigot with a fascist agenda. His milquetoast presentation disguises a hateful platform of destroying the civil rights of groups not favored by white Xtian fundamentalists.
The only difference between him and Desantis or Trump is this soft media image. They are all fascists.
Good! Pudding Fingers Ron #DeSantis does not have national appeal and his policies are looked upon with disdain outside of #Florida. I suspect he knew this would happen which is why he changed the law in Florida allowing him to be Governor when he loses.

Since #Showtime won't air it - let's spread this far and wide....
there was a written piece on the allegations awhile back, too? Anyone have it? Will keep looking...
The episode’s description reads in part, “Seb Walker investigates allegations from former Guantanamo Bay detainees that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis witnessed acts condemned by the United Nations as torture during his past service at the controversial detention camp as a Navy JAG officer."
"The murder rate in San Francisco is significantly lower than that of the entire state of Florida—an incredible statistic, given that crime is usually more concentrated in cities. The murder rate in Los Angeles is significantly lower than major Florida cities like Miami and Tallahassee. And Jacksonville has consistently had the highest murder rate in the state, despite a series of Republican mayors and lead prosecutors."

Seven pages into the ruling, and still reading.
This is from an article about the case. Link is to the ruling if anyone else wants to read it. Love the facts and citations so far. Nice to see anti-trans bigots getting their asses handed to them.
U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle on Tuesday blocked the state from applying the ban to three minors whose parents are part of an ongoing lawsuit, saying they would “suffer irreparable harm” if they were not allowed to continue access to hormones and other types of treatment.
Hinkle’s 44-page ruling called the decision to pursue the ban on puberty blockers and hormonal treatment a political decision and not a “legitimate state interest.” Several states — including Texas — have also recently enacted bans on gender affirming care.

"Texas sheriff files charges over DeSantis' migrant stunt — Calif. AG threatens 'kidnapping' charges"
"State-sanctioned kidnapping is not a public policy choice, it is immoral and disgusting..."
from the #florida AG, the state senate, the state house of representatives, the state supreme court, all the way down to the county sheriff, there is no one in our state in a position of authority who is not in lockstep with #desantis.
Hell, #tfg is still swamping it here.
I believe the #legislature approved the funds desantis is using to do idiotic crap like this. So nothing is going to happen.
@uspolitics Don't threaten #desantis with kidnapping charges. Charge him with kidnapping! And get the #doj involved. It's a federal crime!
The specific charge being investigated is unlawful restraint, which, in terms of the actions #DeSantis is known to have coordinated, is defined in Texas code as "to restrict a person's movements ... by moving the[m] from one place to another or by confining the person ... if it is accomplished by force, intimidation, or deception ..."
Here, the confinement of people in an aircraft and the relocation of those people to another place, all by using deception, seems clear.
While fascist hatemonger Ron #DeSantis is kidnapping human beings and trafficking them across state lines to #California, similar stunts he pulled last fall may be slowly catching up to him.
The Sheriff and DA in Bexar County, #Texas are pursuing criminal charges over a previous kidnapping perpetrated by DeSantis in September 2022. In that event, DeSantis lured dozens of migrants from Texas onto an airplane under false pretenses and abandoned them in Martha's Vineyard.
Sometimes the best way to respond to a fascist is to mock him. Joy Reid is going all in on that strategy on #TheReidOut and viciously mocking #DeSantis's "fight-the-woke" speech. That speech, for you youngs, is a blatant ripoff of a WWII speech by Winston Churchill, who, unlike DeSantis, really was a leader.
“After days of silence, officials in #Florida confirmed on Tuesday that the administration of Gov. Ron #DeSantis had orchestrated two recent charter flights that carried groups of migrants from New Mexico to Sacramento.” #LockHimUp already.
OK, but seriously guys, don't stuff this box and claim tickets, then no-show. That would be wrong. :ms_bear_flag: #DeSantis #Tulsa

DeSantis Stays Silent on Whether Florida Arranged Migrant Flights to California - The New York Times
>The silence from Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican running for president, on such a high-profile incident is unusual.
My take (reposting from 5/26):
The “woke” epithet is used where people dare to question power. It’s “woke” to observe the asymmetries and absences in the historical record, or to ask questions about whose experiences and perspectives are left out of traditional narratives. It would be instructive to ask #DeSantis whether he believes that critical thinking is an important skill-set for Floridian (or American) school students. The answer seems obvious, but let’s get him on record.
Pretending/imagining to be facing the Third Reich, #GOP presidential candidate Ron #Desantis channels Winston Churchill to ramp up and energize his attacks on free inquiry, critical scholarship, and history education.
#democracy #education #freespeech #history

Charles Pierce on DeSantis's shipping of migrants to California:
"It is completely bizarre that this is allowed to continue. It is an infamous practice, dehumanizing at its essence and dangerously provocative as regards national unity. There are principles involved here far above the meager political pay-grades of tinhorns like Greg Abbott in Texas and Ron DeSantis in Florida. It is a cheap hustle, and it needs to be closed down."

Let's agree that "woke" is a #verb (I woke up and wanted #coffee immediately), and not an #adjective and most certainly not a #noun, as #DeSantis is now insisting on. And once we've agreed to that, can we then agree that in its current usage #woke is a #synonym for #antifascist? @atrupar, @jayrosen_nyu

Why Florida's new immigration law is troubling businesses and workers alike

Businesses are pledging to shutter their doors for the day to protest Gov. Ron DeSantis' sweeping new immigration law.

Permitless carry became the law in April 2023. This shooting is because of #DeSantis and the people who elected him because warring with Disney, passing a law so you can't say gay and banning books is so much more important than gun safety laws.

Wer verstehen will, wie es der Faschist #DeSantis geschafft hat mit einem Gesetz #sb254

sollte sich diese Seite anschauen, auf der @zinnia alle wichtigen Informationen darüber zusammengefasst hat.
"Michael Mann, a climate scientist at the University of Pennsylvania, said that #DeSantis’s stance towards #climate science is “classic #projection”.
“It is Ron DeSantis who is engaged in the ‘politicization of the weather’ by #denying basic, established science – the #intensification of tropical storms with human-caused warming of the oceans.”"
Ron #desantis claims to have raised 8 million dollars in 24h guess how much our president raised in 24h after announcing his VP pick. 26 million dollars 3 times the amount and even Tim Scott someone who only has 1% of the vote doing better than Desantis
Theory I debuted on this week's Esquiring Minds (@emp):
The idea for #DeSantis to announce on #Twitter was no older than Tucker Carlson's move to Twitter (5/10). By his own admission, #Musk was not consulted. That gave #Musk the idea to further cater to the #FoxNews cretins.
That gave devs *at most* 2 weeks to prepare for a Spaces the two dullards believed would have millions of listeners.
Who wants to put these two at the helm of anything?
