Radical Right Wing Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is destroying Democracy & behaving like a Anti-Democratic Fascist Authoritarian Wanna-be Dictator

Title from YouTube: “Ron DeSantis Gives Himself Even More Power To Rig Florida Elections”

Description from YouTube: “Florida’s authoritarian Republican governor Ron DeSantis has signed a bill into law giving him control over a new Election Police Force. But that’s just the beginning of what this sweeping new legislation will do, and the rest of the bill is actually even worse than the police force. Voter rolls will have to be “cleaned up” every single year, which is a code for purging voters. And common Get Out The Vote tactics will also now be illegal. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains how this bill will officially make Florida a permanent red state”.


Republican Ron DeSantis proves he’s a SICK, Deluded, Self Aggrandized, Egomaniac with his ‘God made a fighter’ who was ‘Anointed By God’ Propaganda Political Ad

This ad makes it seem DeSantis thinks the sun rises and sets in his ASS and is God’s gift to Mankind.

Floridians re-electing DeSantis proves how STUPID and GULLIBLE they are, seemingly having no idea what a tyrant DeSantis is, who claims he’s made Florida “one of the Freest States in American”, when in fact, he’s taken away rights and made it one of the most oppressed. Floridians re-electing DeSantis has helped reinforce his grandiose delusions.

People used to wonder how the Germans could be so stupid, gullible, lawless and insane to support a Psychopathic Dictator and Brutal Mass Murder as Hitler. We’ve been seeing it happen here in the United States since 2016 when millions voted for Trump and Republicans. We’ve been seeing how millions of Americans are oblivious to Trump’s lawless and insane behavior, and the damage Republicans has been doing for years to our country.


Title from YouTube: “Ron DeSantis’ Corruption Scandal EXPOSED”

DeSantis tries to make it seem he’s fighting for citizens when he’s actually fighting for corporations (like most Republicans) and to advance his own political career. Per the description from YouTube: “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is at the center of a major corporate corruption scandal. DeSantis has signed off on $5.7 billion in tax write-offs and giveaways to corporation, while raising taxes on working people by $1 billion. In return, he’s banked about $30 million from Wall Street and other corporate donors.”.


REPUBLICAN Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proves what an arrogant, self-serving asshole & piece of shit he is by Berating  Students wearing masks. This display shows how DeSantis is a Wanna-be Dictator Tyrant who demands everyone do as he dictates or suffer the consequences. He proved it when he Punished Disney and the Tampa Bay Rays for exercising their Freedom of Speech (videos with details on this page).


DeSantis Takes Page From Autocrats’ Playbook With Migrant Plane Stunt

Alex Wagner outlines how couching the scapegoating and abuse of immigrants in whiney grievance politics like Ron DeSantis has done with his inhumane stunt of abruptly sending 50 migrants to an island in Massachusetts is a textbook autocrat political ploy that not even the disgraced Trump regime was willing to try.


The Right’s Embrace of Fascism and Authoritarianism


This videos gives insight into the oppressive laws Republicans has been passing in recent years and how Russia exemplifies many of the same anti-democratic ideals and values held by Republicans.

The United States will become as oppressive as Putin’s Russia unless Republicans are STOPPED by Voting them Out of Office.


Calmes: Russia’s crackdown on liberty sounds all too familiar to Americans

The news makes for a sickening split screen. We see the ravages of Russia’s war on Ukraine, where it’s as if the black-and-white scenes of carnage and fleeing refugees in World War II Europe – scenes consigned to history books, we thought – have been updated in horrific, real-time color.

Per the above article; “Russia’s crackdown on liberty sounds all too familiar to Americans We see the ravages of Russia’s war on Ukraine, where it’s as if the black-and-white scenes of carnage and fleeing refugees in World War II Europe — scenes consigned to history books, we thought — have been updated in horrific, real-time color. Vladimir Putin’s heinous war has united the Ukrainian people”.

“Then there’s the coverage of the figurative war here in America, a culture war waged by Republicans against women, minority groups, LGBTQ people, educators, public health officials and just about anyone not of a right-wing mindset. This needless conflict divides us, for Republicans’ political gain”.

“Such domestic battles are a luxury of peace and prosperity. I’m reminded of conservatives’ culture wars amid the good times at the turn of the century, before 9/11 made a mockery of the invented threats and brought Americans together against a real one”.

“Even as Ukrainians suffer bombings of hospitals, a maternity center, apartments and schools, our bloodless war proceeds on its several fronts: Against women’s constitutional right to abortion before a fetus’ viability. Against teachers’ rights to speak freely about race and gender. Against transgender youth and their parents. Against public health officials dealing with a once-a-century pandemic that’s killed nearly a million Americans”.

“On abortion rights, Republican-led states aren’t even waiting for the conservative U.S. Supreme Court to turn back the clock a half-century. They’re rushing either to ban abortions at 15 weeks’ gestation, significantly before a fetus is viable (the latest bill just went to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to sign), or to go further and copy Texas’ plainly unconstitutional law that ended nearly all abortions in that state, home to 7 million women of reproductive age”.


Florida Republicans Push State Into Full Blown Fascism

Description from Youtube: “Republican-controlled Florida legislature has passed a bill that would force college professors to be recorded in the state, and once a year they would be forced to undergo questioning about their personal political beliefs. Many students would also be subjected to the same kind of questioning. This is actual fascism in the United States, and the Republicans in Florida say that they are doing this to stomp out “cancel culture.”


Wanna-Be Dictator Florida Republican Fascist Authoritarian Governor Ron DeSantis wants to revive a World War II era program in the state of Florida that would allow him to create his own, personal military branch in the Sunshine State. He has asked the Republican-controlled legislature to give him money for the “Florida State Guard,” which was a program in the Second World War used to bolster the state’s National Guard numbers after they were deployed elsewhere.


The Truth Behind The DeSantis ‘Election Integrity’ Stunt In Florida

Gov. Ron DeSantis Could Be Our Next Presidential Nightmare

In a recent straw poll, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came out as Republicans’ first choice for the 2024 presidential election. But before you celebrate Republicans turning away from Trump, take a look at all the ways Ron DeSantis could be…so much worse!


Furious that Disney spoke out against Republicans ridiculous “Don’t say Gay” law, anti-democratic, fascist wanna-be dictator Ron Desantis plans to Punish Disney which will cost local residents (as detailed in the above video).

Description from Youtube: “During a special session of the state legislature on Wednesday, Florida Republicans voted to strip the Disney Corporation of their “self-governing” status that has been in place for over half a century. While Republicans are celebrating the move, the public is left unaware that they are about to pay for this”.


“Punishes those who dare speak out against his OPPRESSION”


‘A Solution In Search Of A Problem’: DeSantis Goes After Disney’s Special Status

Fallout over Florida’s controversial new law that critics have called the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill continues. This is another example of how Republicans focus on divisive social issues instead of governing and actually doing things to improve people’s lives. Republicans ridiculous “Don’t say Gay” law which is ‘A Solution In Search Of A Problem’. This law doesn’t fix any existing problems… it’s more unnecessary Republican Fascist BIG GOVERNMENT legislation to enslave and regulate every aspect of people’s lives.


DeSantis unleashes vengeance on Disney. This is the stuff of Nixon’s enemies list | Editorial

Editorials and other Opinion content offer perspectives on issues important to our community and are independent from the work of our newsroom reporters. In an act of pure vengeance, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis used his powers last week to expand the legislative special session and strip Walt Disney World of the special taxing district that independently governs it.

Per the above article: “In an act of pure vengeance, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Tuesday that he was using his powers to expand this week’s special session in a push to strip Walt Disney World of the special taxing district that independently governs it. It’s clear that the governor has been nursing a towering grudge against Disney ever since the company had the nerve to listen to its employees and — belatedly, but rightly — speak out against the “Don’t say gay” bill, withholding political campaign contributions in Florida. And it may be that the taxing district, which has been around since 1967 and encompasses two cities, is an outdated concept. The district functions much like a government, with the ability to issue tax-free bonds, provide police and fire service and, notably, build its own nuclear power plant”.

“This is the stuff of Richard Nixon and his enemies list. For those who may not remember, the country’s 37th president kept a list of enemies that was revealed during the Watergate scandal. Its purpose, according to Nixon’s assistant in a 1971 memo, was to plan “how we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.” And that’s what’s going on here”.

“He’s covering his tracks, though with the most transparent of excuses, by saying that he wants the Legislature to consider getting rid of all special taxing districts that were enacted before 1968 and haven’t been reestablished since. So far it looks like that would include just a handful of districts along with Disney’s Reedy Creek Improvement District. House Speaker Chris Sprowls defended the governor’s move, saying the House has long contemplated this action. That doesn’t pass the smell test. In the war between Disney and DeSantis, this isn’t a grenade, it’s a precision missile strike, and it’s aimed right at Central Florida”.

“Back in 1971, Nixon’s list had 20 names on it. Over the next few years, it grew to 576 names. We all know how that ended. Now we have DeSantis’ frightening misuse of power. It must stop here, and that starts with lawmakers stiffening their backbones. Today, it’s Disney. Tomorrow, who knows?”


Anti-democratic, Fascist, Power Hungry Republicans are labeling anyone who disagrees with them as “Groomers” and Pedophiles”


The Right Wants Freedom For Themselves but Not For Others


“Ron DeSantis’ Wish To Be Supreme Dictator Of Florida About To Come True”

Florida governor Ron DeSantis has finally won, and the state legislature agreed this week to allow him to have absolute control over the state by giving him the authority to redraw Congressional districts. This power is reserved only for the state legislature, but after a lengthy battle with the authoritarian DeSantis, the legislature gave up and let him have his way.

This is an election rigging tactic similar to how Right-Wingers turned Hungary into a anti-democratic authoritarian fascist one-party-rule dictatorship where elections & the courts are rigged, all of the media is state controlled and Propaganda is seen everywhere.


Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) signed a bill that bans abortions performed after 15 weeks without exceptions for rape, incest or human trafficking. Passing laws of oppression and taking away people’s freedom is Republicans TOP Priority… NOT pursuing policies and programs which help people.


New Florida law allows public college students and faculty to be surveyed on political beliefs

A new law that will go into effect on July 1 in Florida will allow the state to survey students, faculty and staff at public universities on their political beliefs. Proponents say it will help ensure “intellectual diversity.”  This is another example of radical anti-democratic fascist authoritarianism by Republicans


DeSantis Signs Bill Requiring Colleges To Survey Student, Faculty Beliefs

The government has NO BUSINESS monitoring or interfering with what is taught at Universities. This is the type of “BIG BROTHER” behavior you find in Anti-Democratic Fascist Authoritarian Dictatorships like Russia, China, North Korea and Banana Republics.


Ron DeSantis wants to form an election security police force

Anti-democratic Authoritarian Fascist Republican, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is proposing the creation of an election security force to monitor elections in the state, when there were only 2 confirmed cases of election fraud, both committed by Republicans in the Villages retirement community. DeSantis should move to Russia, China or North Korea. He’d fit right in with those Anti-democratic Authoritarian Fascist bastards.


Ron DeSantis’ Election Police Power Will Backfire On Republicans

Florida’s authoritarian governor Ron DeSantis will soon have his very own “election police force” that will report directly to him. The alleged reason this is needed in Florida is to stamp out voter fraud, but Republicans need to be careful what they wish for. Most of the voter fraud cases that have been found in the state were elderly Republicans, and when this becomes a public spectacle, Republicans will be the ones looking bad.


Ron DeSantis Anti-Freedom, Culture War Laws Get Stricken Down When Challenged in Court




Florida Employees Threatened With Demotions If They Criticize Ron DeSantis

State employees in Florida have been sounding the alarm bells about the quasi-dictatorship that they are working for, with multiple individuals saying that they have been threatened with demotions if they criticize Republican governor Ron DeSantis’s COVID policies. They are living in fear, as one employee put it, and they feel like they have no one to turn to.


Similar to Florida Employees being threatened if they criticize Ron DeSantis, during the invasion of Ukraine, Russia passed a law which would put people in prison for up to 15 years for criticizing Putin and Russia’s policies. It’s easy to see that Republicans are headed in this direction and would not hesitate to be just as extreme if given the opportunity. Right-wingers around the world are all the same… it’s in the DNA to be authoritarians who want to control every aspect of people’s lives.


Florida Gov signs law requiring students, faculty be asked their political beliefs

Story at a glance Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed HB 233 Tuesday. The legislation will require public universities to survey students and staff annually about their beliefs to assess “viewpoint diversity” on campuses. The bill does not specifically say what will be done with survey results, but DeSantis suggested budget cuts could be imminent if universities and colleges are found to be “indoctrinating” students.

Per the above article;  Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed HB 233 Tuesday. The legislation will require public universities to survey students and staff annually about their beliefs to assess “viewpoint diversity” on campuses. The bill does not specifically say what will be done with survey results, but DeSantis suggested budget cuts could be imminent if universities and colleges are found to be “indoctrinating” students.

Under House Bill 233, surveys would be conducted annually on campuses to assess viewpoint diversity and intellectual freedom, and determine “the extent to which competing ideas and perspectives are presented,” and whether students and faculty “feel free to express beliefs and viewpoints on campus and in the classroom.”

The legislation, which goes into effect July 1 2021, also aims to ensure students are being shown ideas that they “may disagree with or find uncomfortable.”

The measure was among three education bills signed by DeSantis Tuesday. Other measures included an expansion of civics education for K-12 schools, including instruction about the perils of communist and totalitarian governments.


Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried compared Gov. Ron DeSantis to Adolf Hitler during a recent interview. Fried, a Democrat who is running for governor in 2022, made the remarks during Friday’s edition of The Florida Roundup podcast.  Co-host Melissa Ross, a reporter for Jacksonville public radio station WJCT, asked Fried about her past references comparing DeSantis to an “authoritarian dictator.”


“He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people’s abilities to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books,” Fried said. “That’s what dictators do. Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler.”

“This governor is doing it for the sole purposes of power and doing so to make fear and to instill that, to blame people for what is happening in their lives, blaming certain parts of our society and culture, and that’s exactly what Hitler did to the Jews back during World War II.”

Fried proclaimed that DeSantis was “not fit to serve” after the state allowed as many as 1 million at-home COVID-19 test kits to expire. DeSantis has said the demand wasn’t there at the time before the omicron surge in Florida led to long lines at testing sites throughout the state.
