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.


Lets clear something up. I am not running for office, and MY online tracks are leaner than DeSantis'.

 

Your other option is : Desantis is so stupid he WOULD say something that could e construed as racist. He also is SO STUPID he belongs to a FB group that posts out and out racism. 

 

Which Desantis do you support? The racist one or the STUPID one. 

 

Well, both probably. lil Donnies mouth and stupidity have caused him most of his problems. 

 Since the 80's the right has acted like its free from consequences. <<< why Trump is in trouble..on all fronts. Scofflaws we used to call them. 


Why did you stop beating your wife?

There is no question that Desantis is RACIST. There is no defending his words.

 

Yeah it's all about context.

 

If someone carries a grinder monkey doll it doesn't mean anything.

 

If they carry a grinder monkey doll into a political event where the opposition is black it does.

 

Using the term monkey in this context is either exceptionally stupid or racist

 

As you point out the man is not stupid.

You have done no such thing.

 

Many people say "monkeying around" as it is in common usage.

 

But it DOES NOT have the same connotation as the phrase "MONKEYING IT UP".

 

The argument that Desantis blurted out an unintended phrase also doesn't pass muster. He defended his use of the phrase rather than apologize for it.

 

One would also have you believe that a YALE GRADUATE, that went on to be a HARVARD LAW GRADUATE, that went on to be a JAG OFFICER and PROSECUTOR in the NAVY would blurt out an unintended phrase........ not with that background they don't.

 

Of course, then there is the "icing on the cake". Desantis makes a point that his BLACK opponent is "ARTICULATE". This word when used to describe an individual BLACK person is a well known "dog whistle" that implies that the "ARTICULATE" BLACK person is the exception rather than the rule.

 

There is no question that Desantis is RACIST. There is no defending his words.

 

The best anyone has done is display different words said by different people of different races and then tried to equivocate them....... doesn't work.

I believe the thread is about DeSantis being a racist. Seems pretty black and white to me (pun intended). DeSantis, like every politician except Trump, would practice what he says when he goes on a state wide news program. The odds on his using the racially charged term "monkey" are very small. On the other hand, if this guys is such a doofus he did make that kind of obvious mistake, he is obviously unfit for office.

I always have supported my choice - supported their causes and campaigns - voted for them - and never voted for republicans, conservatives, and those aligned with either trump - or his control - Putin... 

I always have done what all honest, honorable, morally and ethically upstanding patriotic American Citizens have done ever since the days of Nixon - eschew the racist scumbags on the political right...

 

Back on topic,,,

 

Of course DeSantis is a racist - unlike George Wallace, Lester Maddox, and other racists of the sixties, who spoke openly of their racial convictions - DeSantis, trump and all the rest are cowards who have to deny and dogwhistle - instead of speaking openly and truthfully of their racial beliefs...

In current politics?  

Well - aside from republicans, conservatives and others who follow and support trump - there ARE a number of people who are NOT on the right side - the racist side - of the political divide...
