The reality be informed, many, if not most, politicians enter public service with out giving a rattling about public service. Most of them merely love the ego-trip of successful an election, savor the embrace of company fats cats who bathe them with bribes (oops, I imply donations), and snort on the struggling and ignorance of the very individuals who put them, and proceed to sheepishly put them, into workplace.
There’s additionally little question that many, if not most, politicians are sociopaths, utilizing their energy and authority to serve their very own whims and pressure their madness to turn out to be legal guidelines. This sociopathy has intensified since America’s premier Nazi, Donald J. Trump, rode a wave of white supremacy and cultish devotion into the White Home in 2016.
And with Trump threatening to run for president once more in 2024, his potential rivals have determined that the one solution to beat him is to out-Nazi him.
And no one is doing this higher than Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis.
I’ve written beforehand about DeSantis in my article When Tyranny Masquerades As Legislation and Order (April 22, 2021) and alluded to him in America’s Complacent Descent Into Fascism (April 30, 2021).
In each these articles, I mentioned the draconian legal guidelines that governors, like DeSantis, have handed to stifle, in defiance of the Freedom of Speech and Meeting Clauses of the First Modification, protests in opposition to racism and different types of social injustice, in addition to their makes an attempt to suppress any and all educating concerning the historical past that created this racism.
One would possibly ask how an individual like DeSantis may get hold of energy. The reply is that Florida is in a considerably distinctive place politically. A good portion of its inhabitants fled from Castro’s Cuba, and thus are inclined to vote for any politician who claims to be Castro’s antithesis.
However now the query is starting to come up that possibly creating a brand new Batista (the dictator Castro overthrew) in Florida is simply as unhealthy.
DeSantis has not too long ago proven that his depravity is starting to even surpass Trump’s. Whereas COVID-19 rages uncontrolled in Florida, and lots of hospitals are filling to capability, DeSantis not solely praises the unvaccinated, he has additionally threatened to chop funding to any Florida college that mandates its college students put on masks.
It might be simple to ridicule Florida’s plight, since its voters are those who elected this monster to workplace, so they’re now merely reaping what they’ve sown. In actual fact, I’d agree that those that create monsters don’t deserve mercy or compassion when these monsters destroy them.
Sadly, as mentioned above, DeSantis has confirmed he’s not solely desirous to kill youngsters who’re too younger to vote, and too younger to get vaccinated or to take action with out parental approval, he’s additionally keen to threat the lives of the over 4,000,000 folks in Florida who had the sense to not vote for him.
But, imagine it or not, DeSantis is allegedly working second solely to Trump in who would be the Republican nominee for president within the 2024 election. And given the voting restrictions he, and others of his ilk, have applied to rig upcoming elections, he would possibly also have a probability to win.
Which implies, if COVID-19 persists, or another pandemic hits inside the subsequent few years, extra Individuals could die for the sake of DeSantis’s murderous ego.
A willingness to destroy democracy by suppressing the fitting to vote; an eagerness to scapegoat and suppress the freedoms of racial minorities for political achieve; and a lust to kill males, ladies, and youngsters in an unhinged and unbridled quest for energy. If this does not make DeSantis a Nazi, I do not know what does.
