In the 2018 midterm elections, I was persuaded to support a handful of Republican candidates. Ron DeSantis was running against Andrew Gillum for governor of Florida. Rick Scott was running against Bill Nelson in a Florida Senate race. As always, I end up regretting it.
“As is the case with most laws, the devil can be in the details. Whenever we allow the government to take this kind of aggressive action, we must also allow for strong due-process protections. Without due process, the entire legal system can turn into mob rule. Due process is a crucial part of U.S. jurisprudence and basic fairness.
That’s why a judge should determine whether a person meets the red-flag threshold for having a weapon. Any such person must be given the opportunity to plead his or her case before a judge in a hearing that occurs in a timely and expedited manner. If an extreme risk protection order is carried out, the state must re-prove its case after a short, reasonable period. The process should include criminal penalties for those who instigate it with false or frivolous charges.
We must face the fact that our culture has produced an underclass of predominantly white young men who place no value on human life, who live purposeless lives of anonymity and digital dependency, and who increasingly act on their most evil desires, sometimes with racial hatred. …”
YOU’RE ALL EVIL!
YOU’RE LIVING A PURPOSELESS LIFE!
Unlike Sen. Rick Scott and Gov. Ron DeSantis, my purpose in life isn’t to serve Jewish donors. What have these two mainstream conservatives been up to since they were elected to office last November?
In the Senate, Rick Scott has condemned the Democrats for not showing up at the AIPAC conference and has spent the last six months fighting “anti-Semitism” and supporting anti-BDS legislation. Now, he is supporting his fellow Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s effort to take away our gun rights. Rubio has done nothing for six months but tweet about his plot to overthrow the government of Venezuela and install Juan Guaidó in power. He has rebranded himself as an American Nationalist.
As for Ron DeSantis, he flew to Jerusalem to sign a bill in the U.S. embassy there with Sheldon Adelson which makes “anti-Semitism” a hate crime in Florida. He was led around Israel by Adelson in a yarmulke where he pledged to give “No Quarter” to anti-Semites as Florida’s most “pro-Israel” governor ever. Since returning to Florida, he has ordered the removal of a monument to Confederate general Edmund Kirby Smith and its replacement by civil rights activist Mary Mcleod Bethune.
It is getting to the point where the “pro-Israel” agenda IS the Republican agenda. They aren’t even pretending to have another agenda for non-Jewish voters.
