“I’ve worked in my district to curb voting access among Black residents. I’ve claimed the 2020 presidential election was stolen, ignoring the fact that I won reelection on the same ballot. I honestly don’t know what else I can do. I mean, do they want me to choke an immigrant to death with my bare hands? I will.”
DeSantis, is that you?
Sounds like Glen Youngkin.
Why the fuck aren’t these guys in prison already? I mean, they are both under indictment. How incompetent is the prosecutor who cannot get their bail revoked?
Freudian Slip… or clumsiest ever dog whistle?
2022 GOP: The “say nothing” party
They saw that it worked here, and will try to duplicate it elsewhere. I hate them with a burning passion.
This is why the Dems current strategy is so important, i.e., clearly stating what the Dem party has done for the populace (pointing to Biden’s accomplishments) and comparing that to what the GOP has not done for the populace.
And also pointing out how dangerous the MAGAt candidates are to the lifestyle to which Americans have become accustomed. Conservative groups like The Lincoln Project have been doing most of the heavy lifting there but some Dems are starting to air ads to that effect as we enter the final run-up to November (e.g. Hochul vs. Zeldin in NY).
Apparently, DeSantis did steal Trump’s idea… but not all of it.
Republican candidates continuing to avoid their own constituents.
How it is that voters go for (in cases, repeatedly) a candidate who won’t give them the time of day?
Are they Just Following Orders given by their pastor, their media talking-heads, their besties on Fb, brainwashing by some more overtly toxic source, poor nutrition? perfect storm of all of the above? or what?
Up the street, the coffee shop Happyrock hosted a family-friendly bingo event that featured drag queen performers on Aug. 24. When 32-year-old Soleil Passanante and her 9-year-old son arrived, Passanante said about 15 men – some wearing the black and gold colors of the Proud Boys – were outside the shop, yelling homophobic slurs at performers and accusing attendees of pedophilia.
Three Gladstone police officers arrived, but did not intervene.
“My son got to see first-hand what hate looks like,” Passanante said. “It makes me feel embarrassed to live in Gladstone, and I’ve never felt embarrassed before.”
So nice I had to watch it twice.
More of this, please.
I love that man. Bless him. He took his son’s tragic death, and the insurrection and has turned them into a righteous crusade to save us.
