"You better stop, children! What's that sound? Everybody look, what's goin' down"--- in Florida!

DeSantis is tripling the size of his newly created "Florida State Guard". This new militia is separate from the National Guard and is not answerable to the US military.

It essentially is for the governor to use as he sees fit.

Fascism a-borning! When will we step on his neck?

A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state is the State National Guard as well as the Federal Military. Desantis has created a threat to said security. So his macho move may get Americans slaughtered in warfare on US Soil because he has a problem with the size of his dick. I bet he’s a Republican.

With brown or black shirts, depending on which fascist hero he admires most, Adolf or Benito.

If I’m making bad assumptions here, please call me out but I know that in Miami a lot of Cubans vote R because they or their families fled a Communist state so why does this fascist trend not bother them?
