Looks like the fictional news media is learning the hard way that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis plays hardball when the varied leftist outlets begin disseminating blatant mistruths.
He also plays hardball when the same mindless media outlets launch a massive attack on the state he governs.
MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson recently decided it would be a great idea to rattle off all the reasons why DeSantis apparently can’t win a presidential election, claiming that, in part, the alleged electability of a candidate may be directly correlated to the state from which they hail.
“In my view, there are three states that you can’t really run from if you’re trying to win across America. You run from New York, you’re too crazy, you’re a liberal. You run from California, you’re too crazy, you’re liberal, and you’re trying to make sure I can’t get plastic straws,” Johnson drawled.
Uh, with respect, Johnson, as annoying as the attempts to ban plastic straws (and gas stoves) may be, most people are actually far more concerned with the rise in extremely violent crime, not to mention transgender militantism, that appears to have swept “liberal” states.
Unsurprisingly, Johnson’s feedback regarding Florida was vastly more vicious.
“You run from Florida, it’s all crystal meth and alligators, right? I mean, that’s what people think. And I’m not saying that’s the case. I’m saying those are sort of the national reputations of those states. So, when you see Ron DeSantis running and claiming that he’s going to do for America what he’s done in Florida, it seems like that’d be a problem,” Johnson brayed.
“All crystal meth and alligators,” huh?
Well, the crystal meth could certainly be traced to Democrats’ deliberately open border policies, and as far as alligators are concerned, absurd federal environmental regulations have ensured that they retain alleged “endangered” status, despite the number of alligators outnumbering the number of Floridians (and transplant New Yorkers).
Besides, for such a horrible state, as Johnson portrays, tax refugees from deep blue states sure seem to love fleeing there, especially during the pandemic.
As usual, the DeSantis team had a vastly superior comeback to lamestream media, especially as they managed to incorporate walking political disaster Andrew Gillum, the avowed socialist who ran against DeSantis in 2018.
“MSNBC contributor @DrJasonJohnson claimed that when people think of Florida, they mostly think of ‘crystal meth and alligators.’ Dr. Johnson would know all about that, because he came to Florida to campaign for Andrew Gillum, later found passed out in a hotel with crystal meth,” the DeSantis War Room tweeted.
Fairly hilarious, especially as the MSNBC host apparently forgot their golden boy was indeed caught with crystal meth and two other men in a dodgy hotel room in Miami.
Gillum predictably denied drug abuse, merely admitting to a problem with alcohol instead.
Looks like the media is starting to go all out in its attacks on DeSantis, clearly fearing what risk the Florida governor may pose to whatever braindead Democrat candidate they manage to drag out for 2024.
Including all out lies, as evidenced by yet another MSNBC “contributor,” Andrea Mitchell.
“What does Governor Ron DeSantis not know about Black history and the Black experience when he says that slavery and the aftermath of slavery should not be taught to Florida schoolchildren?” Mitchell sneered.
Wow. That one isn’t even a spin … that one is just flat out false, as DeSantis openly, and clearly, stated that he was fully in favor of real history being taught.
Black queer and transgender ideology? Not so much.
Realizing how egregiously out of line her open lie was, Mitchell later admitted to being “imprecise” with her words in what DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin referred to as a “non-apology” from the egregiously irresponsible network.
“In my interview last Friday with Vice President Harris, I was imprecise in summarizing Governor DeSantis’ position about teaching slavery in schools. Governor DeSantis is not opposed to teaching the fact of slavery in schools, but he has opposed the teaching of an African American studies curriculum as well as the use of some authors and source materials that historians and teachers say makes it all but impossible for students to understand the broader historic and political context behind slavery and its aftermath in the years since,” Mitchell backpedaled.
“Some authors and source materials?” Somehow, it seems that the history of slavery can be understood without the left’s obsession with transgender ideology.
Especially as many in the black community have hardly embraced the absence of gender with the same vigor that spoiled, woke, utterly indebted college students have.
Unsurprisingly, Griffin remained unimpressed.
“I saw her ‘post script’ and it’s a typical non-apology response that doubles down on her lie … Saying one was ‘imprecise,’ when what they said was a blatant lie, is not an apology. @MSNBC /@NBCNews should not be viewed as an objective media organization. Stop letting the corporate media be the gatekeepers of truth,” Griffin declared.
Perhaps the mainstream media should start running disclaimers before all their shows … admitting that whatever content viewers happen to see may well, be in fact, an utter lie.
Alternately, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is more than welcome to start levying handsome fines upon media outlets caught in brazen lies and defamation.
That way, Biden can also acquire more revenue to continue his pointless spending!
… but lose the blatant disinformation channels that helped propel him to “victory” in the first place.
