DeSantis this weekend said:



So this guy wants to be POTUS and get rid of millions and millions of Americans who believe in an ideology that he does not like. (An entire group of people that has served in government -- state and federal -- for years, and many with honor.)

Where have we heard threats like this before? 

How will DeSantis "destroy" leftism?

DeSantis doesn't say, he just threatens to annihilate an ideology he doesn't like. Will he round us up and send us to the firing squads? Does this jackass not read history? He's threatening to destroy thinking he doesn't agree with.


Yeah. When someone tells you who he is, believe him. 


Imagine the pearl clutching if a prominent Democratic presidential candidate publicly said, “I want to destroy conservatism in this country."

He never said get rid of people just crazy ideals which have resulted in doctoral government. Expose “climate change” for what it is which is promoting fear so the government can control you life.

The leftist have already said they will control every aspect of your life and are doing a good job of creating a left utopia.

This is DeSantis's EXACT quote:

DESANTIS: "Because the - everyone knows if I'm the nominee, I will beat Biden, and I will serve two terms and I will be able to destroy leftism in this country and leave woke ideology on the dustbin of history."

The definition of "destroy:"

Definitions from Oxford Languages
put an end to the existence of (something) by damaging or attacking it.

DeSantis wants to destroy the left. How will he destroy it? Because "destroy" means to END THE EXISTENCE OF SOMETHING.

Will the jackass kill anyone who's a lefty?

The left never said it would control every aspect of anyone's life, find me a quote anything like the one DeSantis made about destroying the left. BTW, Conservatives are now forcing girls and women to carry a pregnancy either by her rapist or even if it endangers her life. That's a bit of "forcing" isn't it. Forced pregnancies by the state are as bad as forced abortions by the state.

When you, Anon, are fine with someone who wants to destroy certain Americans for what they think and believe in, YOU, are a danger to our American democracy.

PS Climate change is real.

Shaw, well stated.

I second your statement that Climate Change is real. Those of us humans who are observant have watched for decades as ecological whistleblowers were either recruited by Big Oil or removed from the planet when they left the USA to do environmental work on other continents.

Just as DeSantis didn't use the word ban when removing books from schools across their state, his minions will be remove humans who espouse any ideology DeSantis deems to be woke or to the left. Anyone who denies this scenario hasn't read ANY history and is willfully placing their head in the sand because they don't want to think too hard.

I wondered once how the German population was snookered into supporting the Nazi regime. So kind (/S) of the universe to provide a real life example in my lifetime.

To hell with all those neo-Nazis who want to destroy our democracy. THAT is their goal.

This is the purpose of their war on truth, democracy, education and our freedom. They want to dictate forced births, what books children can read, what teachers can teach, how people dress and perform, and force their radical Right, racist, one-party dictatorship on our nation. All while projecting and howling that the "left" is trying to control them.

Leftism is anti-racist, so they hate it.
Leftism is supporting school children's safety by banning assault weapons. So they hate it.
Leftism is supporting public education and public healthcare, so they hate it.
Leftism is supporting our Constitutional taxes on the rich and corporations, so they hate it.
Leftism is supporting our Constitutional regulation of commerce. So they hate it.
Leftism is supporting our Constitutional provision for the general welfare. So they hate it.
Leftism is supporting cleaner air and water by regulating polluters. So they hate it.
Leftism is supporting feeding the poor and treating the sick. So they hate it.
Leftism is protection of our Constitutional voting rights. So they hate it.

American neo-Nazis will accuse all who opposes them as "communists". Just like Hitler did to those who didn't "Sieg Heil" and goose-step for his Third Reich.

This is why all American neo-Nazis love Trump and DeSantis. They share the same hate for fellow Americans who show intelligence, honesty, decency and compassion.

DeSantis wants to kill "Leftism".

Former President Trump has written that he wants to defund the US department of Justice and the FBI.

Right now these two ppl are the leading GOP candidates running for president.

Where are the sane conservatives who will step up and repudiate these ideas and refuse to support or vote for either candidate?

Grey One talks sass, Dave Dubya, Dave M.

Leftism/Liberalism/Progressivism are all ideas, and anyone who knows history knows that ideas are carried in the hearts and minds of people. Just read about how the ideas of liberty and self-government grew in the progressive minds of the founding fathers.

How does one destroy leftist/liberal/progressive ideas? You have to destroy the people who hold those ideas. That's what DeSantis is saying. (Like most shallow-thinking demagogues, he didn't think the implications of his words out). IMO, and in other's, DeSantis is promising a purge of people whose ideas HE and his ilk don't like.

That's how you get rid of "leftism" in this country.

And if that doesn't scare the beejeebus out of every thinking American, I don't know what will.

Also. Remember this:

CNN 12/2/2022: "Former President Donald Trump called for the termination of the Constitution to overturn the 2020 election and reinstate him to power Saturday in a continuation of his election denialism and pushing of fringe conspiracy theories.

'Do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,' Trump wrote in a post on the social network Truth Social.

So a former POTUS wants to terminate the Constitution because he lost a free and fair election, and a POTUS wannabe promises to purge America of "leftism." How DeSantis proposes to do that, he will not say, because, IMO, he's nothing more than a coward and a bully.

When people keep showing you who they are with their words, BELIEVE THEM!

Since when do Americans accept leaders who threaten to purge people who hold ideas they don't like?

How thick does your head have to be to not realize that climate change is happening? Maybe when the coastal cities go underwater some of the granite heads might change their mind. Na, probably not.

Les Carpenter said...

Anonomous above, DeSaimag ntis, and Trump all define the very worst in and of America.

Ignorance, greed, and hate. The path of a very many on the rightwing journey trying to fundamentally change America in the image of an authortanrian plutocracy.

Shaw Kenawe said...

DeSantis is also making amateur mistakes and unforced errors early in his neo-fascist campaign to be POTUS:

"Ron DeSantis called Ukraine a territorial dispute. Then he had to of course clean up on aisle 8 when everybody pointed out to him that this was an autocratic government... and this was a real geopolitical threat to the West and the U.S."

For a supposed smart guy, he says very stupid things.
