DeSantis Accused of Trying to Wipe Out Gay’s in Florida

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is surely used to being called all kinds of names like, “racist” or “bigot” or even a “Right-Wing Nutjob” but I don’t think he would ever have thought that someone would accuse him of trying to erase the identities of the entire gay community.

Well, it happened, courtesy of State Rep. “Carlitos” Guillermo Smith, who made another off the way, attention-grabbing remark.

Apparently, by not adding a special funding directive in the state budget for the gay community in Orlando, DeSantis is wiping out Carlitos’ identity as a gay man.

Next, can we expect Smith and others to accuse DeSantis of not being a “breeder” and being a closeted gay man?

Wait, DeSantis does wear those black cowboy boots all the, so he may be part of some Village People tribute band? (Sarcasm)

Jimmy Patronis @JimmyPatronis-We’ve worked hard to hold China accountable w/ transparency. Thru @GovRonDeSantis approval of HB 7017, @FLDFS is empowered to identify how China has been working to influence American institutions. If Biden won’t push back on China, Florida will.
