It’s Florida, he’ll never get voted out so he feels like he can let his asshole flag fly.

I know there are progressive people in Florida, but based on this jerk, I would say let the state sink into the ocean.


#3

Maybe just give Florida’s million+ alligators something to boost their appetites?


#4

In before Bugs Bunny GIF.


#5

How dare you say that!! That is cruel to the alligators and I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t eat something that rancid anyhow.

From the source article:

It’s unclear whom Artiles was referring to, since the only black senators in the state Senate are all Democrats — and none of them backed Negron’s bid to lead the chamber.

This may be his defense: that he’s an equal-opportunity racist.


#7

Alligators and crocodiles.


#8

See, you don’t even need the sunglasses anymore.


#9

So… basically Wednesday.


#10

Can’t wait until one of these assholes call another a “cuck”

I’m not knocking St. Thomas Uni, I’m just saying maybe don’t rely on his intellectual heavy lifting. I wonder if they offer classes on “Not Being A Racist Asshole” at Christ Fellowship?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh YEAH, that’s the sauce:

Maybe it’s not about racism at all. Maybe it’s about a pathetic middle-aged man trying to pretend he’s Jessie Pinkman.


#13

Ah, so he’s on meth. Gotcha.


#14

gods… I wish I had the cash to get the hell outta this state.
I live in Largo (right next to Clearwater ) and used to think Tenn & GA were bad but this state takes the cake.

when he stands among his peers
none shall know his lack of wit
if he speaks but little.
But no one is less aware of his folly
than the man who never shuts up.”

Couldn’t that qualify as ‘cruelty to animals’? I mean, bad indigestion hurts.


#17

Florida State Sen. Frank Artiles


#18

And he’s referred to as “aging”???

/sigh


#19

Jesse was free with the “Bs” but I don’t think he ever used the N-word.

He was a murdering meth dealer, not a monster.


#20

Plus, as often as he used that word I think he never said it when referring to actual women, so he wasn’t as sexist as it might seem. I do recall him referring to Skyler White as “ball buster” though.
