Ron DeSantis, Republican candidate for Governor of Florida, suggested in an interview shortly after his nomination, that his just-nominated Progressive-Democrat opponent, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, would, if elected, monkey up the Florida economy.
Oh, the hue and cry from the Progressive-Democrats, the NLMSM, and from Gillum. A colloquialism that plainly means to mess with things, or to mess things up, suddenly is a racist bull horn—much more than a dog whistle according to Gillum.
How can this be? One candidate says another candidate will mess things up, and this is racist!?
Oh, wait—Gillum is black.
Notice that. Gillum isn’t a political candidate who happens to be a black man; he’s a black man who happens to be a political candidate.
Americans for generations have worked hard to make race irrelevant. All men are created equal, equal employment, Martin Luther King’s dream, and on and on.
But not anymore. The Progressive-Democrat, his Party, and the Left in general insist that what’s important here is the man’s race, not his policies. It’s his race that gives meaning to the colloquialism, not his policies.
This emphasis by the Progressive-Democrat, his Party, and the Left in general on race is rank racist bigotry. That it’s wholly artificial, done by politicians solely for personal political gain and by pseudo-journalists solely for click bait makes their racism even worse.
Gillum’s cynically artificial racism should disqualify him from public office.
