Let me tell you how it really is; Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is a racist, and he is playing to his racist base. That’s my educated guess, my street sense, and my gut feeling. Both my spider and bat senses scream it.

Perhaps, for purely political reasons, the Miami-Dade Black Advisory Board felt compelled to apologize for one of their members branding the Florida Governor a “racist.”

Well yeah, sure, I guess, but, and this is a big Bertha Butt, my little Nana always said, listen here sugar foot, “If it walks like a Klansman, talks like a Klansman, smells, feels and its words taste like that of a Klansman, then hell child, it’s a damn Klansman.

But hang on, as I understand it, DeSantis is merely playing to his political “base.” Accordingly, the only logical conclusion is - his “base,” his “people” are too a Klansman-minded group of individuals who all share extremely similar racist, sexist, elitist, and xenophobic opinions and values.

So yes, a significant percentage, a weighty portion of the American population that supports him, is too racist, sexist, elitist, and xenophobic.

Those “isms” are as All-American as Hot Dogs, Coke, and Corvettes. Apple Pie, Guns, and race riots. Cocaine, Jazz, and convertible Mustangs.

There’s no denying it: millions upon millions of European Americans arrogantly or ignorantly regard themselves as the only true, legitimate, authentic real Americans and are supporting Ron DeSantis because he, and they, share the same prejudiced, intolerant, bigoted, insular, isolationist, ethnocentric and nationalist viewpoints.

These like-minded folks are rallying around legislation that would prohibit individuals from making people “feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race, color, sex, or national origin.”

Ain’t that a’ bitch?!

Recall when DeSantis warned Floridians not to “monkey this up” by electing Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee, who is African-American.

The last thing we need to do is monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state,” said DeSantis. The quote followed earlier statements that Gillum was “an articulate spokesman” for leftist views.

When originally seeking the Governor’s office, DeSantis showed up and spoke at rallies organized by a Neo-Confederate who has said that African Americans owe their freedom to white people and that the country’s ‘only serious race war’ is against whites. And who donated more than $20,000 to Ron DeSantis and lined up a speech for him at lord Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club, calling former President Barack Obama a “F---- MUSLIM N----” on Twitter.

DeSantis announced the Stop the Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees (W.O.K.E.) Act which gives businesses, employees, children, and families tools to fight back against woke indoctrination. It is designed to be the strongest legislation in the nation and will take on both corporate wokeness and Critical Race Theory. The act piles on the crude and illicit actions Governor DeSantis has already taken to ban Critical Race Theory and the New York Times’ 1619 Project in Florida’s schools. Critical Race Theory is defined as “an academic area of study that looks at how racism is embedded in seemingly color-blind laws and institutions.”

DeSantis, via his legislation, prohibits individuals from making people “feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race, color, sex, or national origin.”

Ain’t that an insulting, belittling, arrogant pompous you know what? If we tell the truth, we shame the devil.

If kids are not taught about institutional racism and the white supremacy it upholds, they won’t question it later when they are voters.

Can’t this combative and combustible argument Manifest Destiny vs. Critical Race Theory honestly can be best described as BS vs. The butt-naked stone-cold truth which the whole wide world agrees upon?

Among the many pieces of this empire’s decadent story, White folks don’t want to be told about are the ghost dances of the late-nineteenth-century American Indian spiritual movement. The ghost dance began in Nevada in 1889 when a Paiute named Wovoka prophesied the extinction of white people and the return of the old-time life and superiority of the Indians.

As their numbers were being whittled down into a form of slow genocide, America’s indigenous folks hoped for the Big Payback and return to the happy days of pre-colonialism, and this righteous yearning scared the White folks of the day to death, they banned the dances and ….

It’s no different from what they’re doing today.

Slaves were never to be taught to read; it was a crime to educate Blacks. Understand, as men like DeSantis and his millions-strong base understand, it’s far easier to pimp, exploit and oppress people who are uneducated, particularly about who they are, how they got where they are, and yes, who did this to them, and how this type of lop-sided society was crafted and maintained. They, like the “help,” to remain uneducated and thus enlightened.

Is Florida the heartless heart n’ soulless soul of the new, ever-spreading 21st Confederacy? Yes, it appears so.

DeSantis, like Trump, is simply saying what the GOP Base believes. The collective goal of this new Confederacy is to take back “their” America and return it to yesteryear when Blacks, Brown folks, immigrants, and women, in general, all knew and accepted their assigned inferior, secondary place in the White man’s country.

Where do you think DeSantis stands on a woman’s right to control her own body?

Something wicked this way comes… it’s Ron DeSantis and his millions upon millions of followers!
