DeSantis did not display that sign. You did display that sign. Question - who is the racist?

 

You must be referring to Ed Hall.


Ed Hall has spent the last twenty years building a reputation as an editorial cartoonist with bite. He graduated from The University of Florida in 1986 with a Masters degree in Fine Art.


After college, Ed Hall worked for several weekly publications in and around Jacksonville, and finally settled at The Baker County Press in Macclenny, Florida where he continues to work as the weekly cartoonist.

 

Over the last 11 years, Hall has won 9 Florida Press Association Awards, 3 Newsmaker Awards, and numerous fine art awards. In 2003, Ed was presented the53rd Annual Green Eyeshade Award for weekly cartoons by The Society of Professional Journalists.
Ed has also three times received the prestigious Excellence in Journalism Award from The Florida Press Club.

There are other sources for this. Spin it anyway you want, the largest Tea Party group on Facebook is indeed racist. So are the admins. DeSantis even ran campaign ads there. SO much for his monkey whistle. 


Can you honestly say that you NEVER used the phrase : "monkeying around"? Most people that use that phrase never intend it to be a racial slur and those that feel it is are probably closet racists.


The problem for DeSantis is he was speaking English, and he said MONKEY UP, not monkey around.Change monkey for mess and see the difference. In both cases, there's an understood "you" attached - (you)mess around means you have a casual relation with someone or something. But (you)mess UP means you have committed a deliberate act to botch, bungle or destroy.

 

The expression "Monkey Up" is active and direct and the term "Monkey" has been a racial slur for a VERY long time. It may have been a "slip of the tongue" but a "freudian slip" is a real thing and does in fact reflect the speakers true feelings, in this case racism directed against his opponent.


Since you proclaim yourself as an expert on racism (like "all southern Republicans are racists") possibly you can point out other instances where a verb is racist slur.

We have been discussing the meaning of that one word in that one interview and there seems to be disagreement over it's appropriateness

 

But beyond that, what do you know about him that would qualify for the term "raging racist". Or are you just feeling poorly today?

Here's another one...  He's a racist!  No backup, no proof or evidence just; HE's a RACIST!

 

What a strategy...  Let's watch the upcoming election.

 

You folks really need to get a grip on reality.

 

TOO FUNNY!!

Go for it but you won't like the outcome.  Floridians are not too interested your socialist candidate...  

 

You are listening to the people that moved here from the Northeast.  We (the voters) have not let too many of them run things here after they screwed up their Northeastern states and cities...
