DeSantis just ended his political career by lowering flags for Limbaugh

Last edited Sat Feb 20, 2021, 04:40 PM - Edit history (2)

...DeSantis like Cruz is sure he can get away with it. This will follow him forever. You don't lower flags for a bigot and a hate monger. That becomes your legacy. If DeSantis did this as a favor to Trump, then DeSantis is a fool. I thought DeSantis was smarter than this, but he is not. He thinks he knows the
people in Florida, but a lot of them will use this as a reason to vote against him...That is not just one
time, but forever and forever. Further, this one move will be a talking point about DeSantis forever.
....Again, he is sure he can get away with it, but he can't

86. Yes, I think they watched Trump

and thought, "Well, if HE can do it and survive, what do I have to lose?" The problem is they are NOT Trump. When Trump does it, for some reason it is viewed as bold and unconventional, but when his acolytes emulate his outrageous behavior, it is seen for what it is, a weak, unimpressive imitation.

There can only be one Trump and only he can pull off that crap without consequences. Historians will be studying the phenomenon for many years trying to figure out why, but in the meantime, fools like DeSantis do not have whatever it is that allowed Trump to repeatedly defy reasonable norms. We saw that during the republican primaries in 2016. Whenever one of Trump's opponents tried to use his tactics, it failed miserably. Trump's followers accepted and forgave his antics, but the same behavior in anyone else was a bridge too far.

I suppose these Trump wannabes are doing the world a favor. They showed the MAGA crowd that what they tolerated and even applauded in their leader, they would never put up with from someone else.

It will be January 12, which is Pigboy's birthday.

ďCitizens of this state are encouraged to celebrate the day by participating in appropriate events and activities to remember the life of the famous Missourian and groundbreaking radio host,Ē the legislation says.


I know! I know! To remember the life of the "famous Missourian and groundbreaking radio host," on January 12 I pledge to go to Home Depot and purchase 50 bags of steer manure. (A bag of that product weighs 40 pounds.) Considering who we are talking about and what he did for a living, I can think of no better tribute to that famous Missourian than being sold a ton of shit.

Why?...Because Limbaugh does not stand for the equality of the U.S.A. It is that simple. This discussion

Especially when you compare it with Cruz trying to ..."get away with it." No one knows the total end
at this time, but I think this will destroy DeSantis. He will always have to answer questions about this
flag lowering. There are a whole lot of people who will turn on DeSantis for this. At least that is what
I think.

14. Do a search engine on state demographics

A little while back, Florida had only 36% born in the state. The else came from elsewhere. How many are retirees from the Middle-West and the North East, what is their socio-economic status? Cubans are taught (as are many others) Democrats are socialists, and all socialists are exactly like the worst one they can think of. The Panhandle counties are those that are native Floridians, and they are extensions of Georgia, and Alabama.

53. The FL Democratic is incompetent. They have won 6 of the past 25 statewide elections.

There is constant infighting and the Party is structurally broken.

The one shining star at the local level is Rep. Anna Eskamani. She is fantastic and has a huge following in Orlando. That said, the state party holds her at armís length (at best). The party bosses should get then hell out of the way and let her lead. Her constituent services outreach is fantastic. Her social media presence is phenomenal. The entire party should be following her lead. But unfortunately it does not. Morons.

The largest (at the time) in history.

But Florida forgave him.

Elected him Governor.

Then US Senator.

It's not like he's working a charisma angle. He is a crooked businessman who ripped off the taxpayers for hundreds of millions, and to some people that is not a liability, but an asset.

I've given up the hope that a Republican will lose support because of a scandal. They seem to thrive on shameful behavior, like mushrooms growing on shit.

50. DeSantis is under water in the polls

this is a stupid move politicly as well as morally and it won't help him with Dems or
or most independents.

51. I hope you are right but I think the stupidity of republican voters has no limits

They usually find an excuse even if their politicians physically kick them in their stomachs.

52. I think there will be a...THROWBACK against this..The likes of which we have not seen.

By minorities, churches, newspapers, other statewide institutions like colleges & universities

We have not seen anything like this...but I could be wrong, and I admit it..................

...so then, I will just hide.. ..(Got to go to 3 on this one..)

58. Yes, ...THROWBACK ...the likes that have not seen in Florida..& the U.S.A too.

..."That" state is not..."That" state.

There are millions of people in Florida, who hate Limbaugh and what he stands for, .......................
........and will hate DeSantis for doing this. The fire has just started..& this will be a big fire..the
likes of which are not expected or known in Florida politics. That is my opinion and we will see..
DeSantis is sure he can get away with this, but I do not think so. Opposition will develop and
will be very strong from many places..

56. I hope you're correct.

It's an embarrassment to the people of Florida to have an asshat like DeSatan run the state like it's his own kingdom.

61. You get away with it in a state locked in by bigots and hatemongers, sorry.

There are good folks in FL, but their government and the voting system has been trashed and is under the complete control of the GOP.

DeSantis will not only get away with this, he will earn brownie points with his terrified, hate-ridden base.

sadly,
Bright

62. Just another brick in the wall of evidence

Florida Democrats have to use against DeathSentence in 2022. We need a solid Dem to run against him and we need a functional Democratic Party here.

66. It is Florida. They voted for Trump two times AND voted for Desantis

Desantis is basically Trumpís mini me. If they love Trump/Desantis then majority are probably with flags being lowered for Rush Limbaugh.

68. He had no words for John Lewis

His priorities are quite clear and his supporters priorities are clear. DeSantis supports the marginalization and/or oppression of people that differ culturally from his own background.




Support DeSantis and you are supporting racism.

73. Somebody in the WI legislature wanted Gov Evers to do the same in Wisconsin

He didn't, but it seems flags are at half staff here more often than not.
