Not only did DeSantis sign this bill, he signed it in Brandon, Florida. We’re all familiar with the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon” being a stand-in for the more vulgar “F— Joe Biden” chants that began emerging last summer. But DeSantis chose to sign this bill in Brandon, Florida only weeks after the original incident occurred that propelled “Let’s Go Brandon.” DeSantis himself helped give the movement its legs by signing the law in that town.
There’s plenty about Thunberg to be annoyed by. Her lecturing tone as epitomized in her “How dare you!” rant is certainly aggravating, and so is her hyperbolic rhetoric which is often blatantly false. But what’s truly bothersome about her is this: Who the hell is Greta Thunberg, and what qualifies her to be the Pope of Climate Change?
For those who argue that Larry Hogan is governor in a deep-blue state and that it’s better to have a RINO than a Democrat, I would ask you to look at Maryland’s next-door neighbor to the south. Virginia is also a deep-blue state, and one in which a true conservative named Glenn Youngkin was elected governor only four months ago; and he beat his Democratic opponent handily, in fact.
Not only is DeSantis redefining what it means to be a Republican governor, he’s redefining what it means to be a conservative. On his current trajectory, Ron DeSantis could well be the most important conservative voice of this generation. And keep in mind, at 43-years-old he’s the youngest governor in the country, Democrat or Republican.
What Carhartt’s refusal to back off their vax mandate tells me is that they’re fully committed their leftist ideals. They’re on the left, they’re unapologetic, and if you don’t like it then don’t buy their clothes and find someplace else to work. If Biden and the Democrats are in favor of it, then so is Carhartt, no matter how idiotic it might be.
The chants of “F*** Joe Biden” showed that many Americans, particularly younger folks, are fed up with leftism and are becoming increasingly vocal about that dissatisfaction. And the tempering of those chants to “Let’s Go Brandon” only show an appreciation for civility. “Let’s Go Brandon” certainly has a political aspect to it, but it’s more cultural than political. American moderates are increasingly saying: Don’t try to shove your leftist values down our throats.
Through President Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office, he had either proposed or implemented over $6 trillion in new, federal spending. Joe was spending like his son Hunter during a Vegas coke binge. The problem is, of course, Biden was spending money that doesn’t even exist. We were spending more than ever before and putting the country into more debt. Additionally, in late-January when Biden was inaugurated, the economy was already heating up as lockdowns and other Covid measures were being lifted, so we didn’t need more government spending. But that didn’t matter to Joe.
Coming off the heels of the Covid lockdowns and panic of the Covid pandemic, Biden and Team were poised to oversee the natural economic rebound that was inevitable. By the time of Biden’s inauguration in January, businesses were opening up, people were getting ready to go back to work if they weren’t doing so already, and we were vaccinating over a million Americans per day. All Biden and Yellen had to do was to sit back, watch, and not screw things up. But they couldn’t help themselves.
If we all look at Covid and its variants logically, we’ll inevitably conclude that we don’t need mask and/or vaccine mandates. We’ll figure out that we don’t need to shut down schools again and we don’t need to grant sweeping powers to overzealous Democratic governors. And most importantly, if we’re calm and reasonable in how we react to Omicron, we’ll conclude that we don’t need to spend another trillion dollars on some “relief” bill.
If a white male, with a history of making openly anti-black, racially-incendiary statements and repeated acts of physical violence, had intentionally careened into a Juneteenth parade of black elders and young people, it is fair to say that the George Floyd Riots of 2020 would look like a child smacking a pinata in comparison to the reaction to such violence.
