We missed this yesterday when we did our piece on Gov. Ron DeSantis rolling out tougher penalties for those arrested for crimes committed during protests. As Twitchy reported, TV producer Andrew Kimmel called the tougher penalties — such as making it a third-degree felony to obstruct traffic — “actual fascism.”
Now we have video from the press conference in which DeSantis rolled out the new legislation, which won’t be voted on until next year. And just to clear up any confusion on what constitutes a peaceful protest vs. a riot was Sheriff Grady Judd, who brought pictures in lieu of puppets and crayons so the press could understand the difference.
'SOME PEOPLE ARE SLOW LEARNERS' In typical Grady Judd fashion, the sheriff brought cue cards to the governor's press conference to help illustrate the difference between peaceful protests and riots. pic.twitter.com/dNrcJmqVpG

We went from teaching world history, cursive writing, memorizing the multiplication table to teaching remedial English in schools.
Now, we have to use pictures to explain what is lawful and unlawful behaviour. Future looks great!

My favorite line, "Some people are slow learners." Yep, they sure are.

Thank you, Sheriff, for leading by example. With any luck, you will inspire more to do the same.
