Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis was in Las Vegas, Nevada, over the weekend on his “Florida Blueprint” tour. During his speech, he couldn’t help but draw attention to one particular component of the Florida Blueprint: the total domination of the Republican Party.

Former U.S. Representative from Florida Debbie Mucarsel-Powell heard that and was struck by the obvious parallels between DeSantis and late Marxist Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. It couldn’t be more obvious now that they’re pretty much the same person, you see:
In Cuba, Castro followed the one party, one state rule. One party state is a a state under a dictatorship. DeSantis is following in Castro’s footsteps but he won’t get too far. Floridians are seeing right through his extremism. https://t.co/0LJn8I4UWn

Fidel Castro ruled over Cuba with an iron fist and no party to oppose him. Ron DeSantis governs Florida and the Democratic Party was on the ballot in statewide elections and voters overwhelmingly rejected it.
Obviously Florida is turning into communist Cuba as we speak. If Debbie hadn’t pointed it out to us, we might never would’ve put two and two together!
A ridiculous and desperate comparison.

In so, so many ways. Let us count some of them, shall we?
It’s shocking that the Cubans continued to re-elect Castro.

When did Cuba have free elections, Debbie?
— Giancarlo Sopo (@GiancarloSopo) March 14, 2023
Certainly not while Castro was bangin’.
The won elections Deb. How is that like a dictatorship?

And do we really want to go there as far as one-party domination amounting to statewide dictatorship? Because …
GP Now do New York and California. https://t.co/oj3T4NK1qj

Wouldn’t California therefore be a dictatorship?

If democrats won every single statewide office in FL..would you be calling it a dictatorship if the one party state was the color blue? I doubt it. Try running better candidates. https://t.co/CiSRTQeq4L

That would certainly be a good start.
The difference being that Florida does have two parties AND the people roundly reject one of those parties – yours!

That doesn’t make Florida a dictatorship, Debbie. It just makes it red.
If DeSantis is a dictator, like Castro, he is doing the poorest job of being one. Just terrible.
