What in the actual fuck Florida!?! If you didn’t know, Ron DeSantis trafficked about 50 Venezuelan asylum seekers from San Antonio Texas to Martha’s Vinyard this past week with taxpayer funds. The funding is legal as it was approved by the state legislature with no regard of the resources this steals from Florida’s most vulnerable citizens. These migrants were told they were being transported to Boston for services and jobs. So these human beings that were fleeing a country we fucked up (look into Reagan’s Latin American escapades and The Chicago Boys) would have rather astonished when they arrived on an island community known to be vacation homes for the 1%. The community knew nothing about this until they arrived so the state of Massachusetts jas been scrambling to get these people assistance. This is flat out fucking inhuman and cruel of DeSantis. Greg Abbott bussing migrants all over the country because they’re not a “sanctuary state” is already terrible but this was next level. And these deranged xenophobes are using your money, resources and infrastructure to score points with the most racist troglodyte end of their fucking base because the people don’t mater. Only power. There’s an election coming up and if you don’t wanna wait that long, they have addresses you can show you up at.

Ron DeSantis (governor of Florida introduced a bill to make it illegal to discomfort white people through the teaching of Critical Race Theory. Yes, he is fucking criminalizing anti-racism in the most efficient way possible. The best way to stop racism is to kill ignorance with education. Discomforting white should be a default and a life goal. I propose we use social media to pump CRT and antiracism to as many Floridians as possible. Legislation like this is the new face of the Klan. It’s more insidious as it has more power with which to be irresponsible. If we don’t want this fascism to keep spreading and strangling us, we must fight. You cannot sit on the fucking sidelines. If you’re fence walking, you’re one of them. This is a new Jim Crow. Allowing people to learn the truth and decide for themselves is the next step in civil rights. Sitting by during that era was wrong, now it’s unacceptable as there’s no reason to not know better.

The fuckin nazis are makin noise again. Over the weekend the group Patriot Front marched at the Lincoln Memorial. This is the name change of American Vanguard who were the khaki commandos at Charlottesville whose own member killed Heather Hayer with his car. This is highly problematic as they’ve had plenty of time to plan and organize coming from a group who has demonstrated a willingness to kill. Also Proud Boys marched over the weekend. The most concerning is that Ron DeSantis is working to establish a state guard in Florida. This proposal will be about 200 volunteers who will serve alongside the National Guard bit be strictly beholden to DeSantis. My bet is 200 members of neo nazi leadership to recruit and marshal those federal resources. Like I said, they weren’t hiding, they’ve been planning. Make sure the streets is watching and have each other’s backs out there.
