Making an example of Disney, Sports Teams, and the Special Olympics
Fabulous article Ruth! Not all GOP members are a venal coterie of mendacious, ignominious chodes. Most are simply unctuous derps, looking for a big payoff, coupled with the power and favor of holding political office!
And you misspelled "drivel."
Wow, your intellectual elitism can’t be any more glaring! No mention of the Left- Wing cancel culture, violence against and threats (by elected officials) against any conservatives! Even the ‘president’ promoting out and out lies! Over 1000 police injured in the summer of Love! 2 billion in damages, all supported by the peaceful Left! The collusion of the Media, which continues to hide the corruption and failed policies of this administration. Have you written an essay about the Russia Collusion story, planted by the DNC, to bring down Trump?????
The entire article is nothing but dribble!
Vote, get your friends to Vote, tell everyone to vote, offer car rides. We must, MUST get rid of this sanctimonious, petty, little dictator-wanna-be!
Does this publication cover any left-wing authoritarianism like vaccine and mask mandates as well as school closures? If not you have no credibility.
I wish someone would stand up to this bully. When I was a youngster growing up in Mobile, Alabama a bully (usually a male) was dealt a knuckle sandwich and the bullying usually stopped after a fat lip. I know that fighting is considered socially unacceptable now, but it sure would be nice to see DeSantis sporting a black eye. Everyone could see for themselves what happens when you screw with the wrong person. DeSantis is just another wannabe Hitler control freak who loves power. He gets a cheap thrill out of screwing with those he considers weaker than him. I wish karma would hurry up with this guy before he turns Florida into his personal dictatorship. I don't condone violence in the political arena because the ballot box method of removal is my preferred method of humiliating his type. The voters of Florida need to wake up and dispose of DeSantis at the polls.
When I saw that happen I wish the Special Olympics had pulled out of Florida altogether. The guy is quite evil. We know it but many don't. It's ok to push back on a bully.
I imagine Colorado would love to have the Rays train there
As president, Trump was a dangerous sideshow. DeSantis would end America as we know it.
I have often said that it’s not so much Trump but what comes AFTER Trump. Unfortunately, this latest post from Ruth will not be read by the very people who need to read it.
The clock keeps ticking and Trumpism is sticking…
DeSantis is using the State to chill free speech of two organizations, Disney and The Tampa Bay Rays. Supposedly, corporations are people. First Amendment violation?
DeSantis has the glaringly obvious fascist characteristics of sadism and intolerance of dissent. His callousness sounds sociopathc. He's telling us who he is..... and we should listen.
Ruth Ben-Ghiat you said "businesses based in Florida should prepare accordingly." Is this not only autocratic capture in that it creates state based incentives for businesses to hue the party line and punish those that do not or dare say anything negative against the leader or his policy but also a step towards fascism in that it coerces businesses leaders to merge with the state?
"Businesses based in Florida should prepare accordingly." This shakes at a new, different pillar of society. It's swallowing up society faster, by shear numbers of people affected, or fear of being affected.
The man seems devoid of "public virtue". Not a good look for a public servant in high office but, is apparently just what a lot of very wealthy donors are looking for.
You are kicking out the jams now here in this article about DeSantis. I am a Sufi and my favorite subject is "Moral Culture." The immorality of DeSantis you point out well.
I should think simply listing his actions, as you have done, would/could lead his opponent to victory. The immorality of it all is clear to me.
