Unbelievable. Desantis has ordered flags at half mast for Limbaugh!

This is everything you need to know about Desantis.


https://www.theguardian.com/media/2021/feb/20/rush-limbaugh-florida-ron-desantis-flags-half-staff

Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, has said flags in the state will fly at half-staff for Rush Limbaugh, the hard-right talk radio host who died this week aged 70.

Gary Farmer, Democratic minority leader in the Florida Senate, said: “Any move to lower our flag in deference to a man who helped drive the hatred and inflame the prejudices against marginalised groups, people of colour, women and anyone who did not look like him or think like him is wrong and should be rescinded.

But Limbaugh’s Guardian obituary said he “set the tone for the internet age of politics, calling women’s rights activists ‘feminazis’, referring to HIV/Aids as ‘Rock Hudson’s disease’ and claiming ‘environmentalist wackos’ were ‘a bunch of scientists organised around a political position’.

“He argued that the existence of gorillas disproved evolution, characterised both the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (2010) and the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand (2019) as ‘false flag’ operations organised by leftists, and accused the Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe of allowing the Charlottesville rioting in 2017 to worsen in order to boost his presidential ambitions.

“‘Have you ever noticed how composite sketches of criminals always look like [the black activist] Jesse Jackson?’ he asked.”

1. If DeSantis had a brain, he'd be dangerous!

How many poor decisions can one "man" make in a lifetime? Incredible!

3. He's trying to be the next Trump.

Perhaps more so than anyone in the GOP right now.

I’m a resident of Florida and this makes me fucking sick.

4. Just a last-gasp effort to try to make the liberals cry this year

That's all this is.

That's all "Stop the Steal" was. Let's keep making the liberals cry in the face of a crushing defeat.

Weak sauce.

8. Look at it this way.

If it turns out that Limbaugh was shtupping under-aged boys, DeSantis will be supporting that too.
