A radical black progressive socialist democrat Andrew Gillum, running for Governor of Florida, was quick to throw down the race card using the flimsiest pretext of racializing a colloquialism used by his conservative opponent.
In speaking about his candidacy for Governor of Florida, conservative Republican Ron DeSantis cautioned fellow Republicans, “The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”
You will notice DeSantis did not reference Gillum but socialism when he uses the phrase “monkey this up.”
In an interview with Fox News’ in-house progressive, Shepard Smith, Gillum not only jumped in the gutter to throw the race card and trash DeSantis, but then he denied rolling around in the gutter by himself…
When Fox News host Shepard Smith asked Gillum if he thought the comment was racist, Gillum replied: "In the handbook of Donald Trump, they no longer do whistle calls, they're now using full bullhorns." Smith repeated the question and Gillum responded, "I'm not going to get down in the gutter with DeSantis and Trump. There's enough of that going on. I'm going to try to stay high."
The reference to “whistle calls” is political speak for those silent dog whistles which are used to issue commands to a dog, in the political sense code words that silently rally the base. Bullhorns are being used in a racial context by Gillum as a reference to Democrat Bull Connor’s use of a bullhorn when enforcing segregation as the Birmingham, Alabama Commissioner of Public Safety. And what diatribe would be complete without a reference to President Donald Trump and his demonization as a racist by the radical left progressive democrats who are racists?
Why the distraction?
There is a valid reason that Gillum and his party need to use Alinsky tactics to destroy DeSantis. Truth-be-told, Gillum’s radical “Bernie Sanders’ Marxist: platform will not fly in Florida. Imagine telling Floridians who escaped high-tax states that you want to significantly raise taxes? Imagine telling Florida’s large population that you want to impose single-payer healthcare and nationalize health care to the extent of eliminating the average individual’s freedom to seek healthcare, especially in a system that would ration care to those facing end of life situations? Or telling Floridians that everybody should be covered by Medicare, thus destroying healthcare protections of those receiving Medicare benefits and bankrupting the system?
Even the Democrat establishment did not support Gillum who won on a plurality due to the number of candidates in the race.
The mainstream media is in full “echo chamber” mode SHOUTING RACISM while whispering little or nothing about the FBI investigation into Tallahassee City Hall corruption where Gilliam was the Mayor since 2014. It appears that Gillum wants to turn Florida into another failed radical progressive state like California, New York, and New Jersey. I wonder how the large Cuban population feels about imposing socialism in Florida.
If Floridians vote for this radical activist, look to Florida’s first state income tax because there is no way to pay for Gillum’s gifts and graft.
Even worse, the GOP sees this slander and does nothing.
We are so screwed.
