It looks like the rhetoric around the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill in Florida is beginning to run out of steam. Today, you have your choice of new Gov. Ron DeSantis attacks: first, that he budgeted himself a personal private jet, and second, as NBC News reports, that he’s targeting black-held congressional seats.
Gov. DeSantis targets Black-held congressional seats. And his own party. https://t.co/WIietYYPX9

Honestly, check out these first two paragraphs by NBC News’ Marc Caputo:
Abortion and immigration restrictions. A new election fraud police force. Limits on classroom discussion and instruction about sexuality, gender and race.
The Florida Legislature has become a front line in the nation’s culture wars, and its regular lawmaking session ends Monday after it provided a springboard for Gov. Ron DeSantis’ November re-election campaign, as well as his White House ambitions.
Caputo writes as if those are bad things. And now DeSantis is targeting congressional seats held by black Democrats, “according to sources familiar with the governor’s thinking.” This is just further proof to MSNBC’s Joy Reid that DeSantis is anti-black as well as anti-everything else.
Bottom line: DeSantis is building his 2024 campaign on a Trump-on-steroids menu of pro-COVID, anti-LGBT, anti-Black, anti-teacher, control-the-women, undiluted fascism. The far right loves it and Florida Republicans are too scared of him to get in the way. https://t.co/oKgjFohfvO

How do you know you can disregard anything Joy says as the ramblings of an unserious person?
Because she says "pro-COVID" as though anyone is pro-COVID. Someone might be less concerned than you, or not concerned, but saying pro-COVID is a good way to signal your tribalism. https://t.co/6SjieA6y91

Nobody is more responsible for the divisiveness in the country we see today than the media, with dishonest and distorted "reporting" like this https://t.co/XSP8xvODVE

I'm no fan of Ron DeSantis, but this is rich coming from someone who furthered a "groomer" myth herself, writing on her blog that adult gay men are almost exclusively attracted to "very young, post-pubescent types." And we're all just supposed to forget about that. https://t.co/Z473VqiS1H
