DeSantis signs bill establishing ‘Victims of Communism Day’

''.......Florida Lt. Gov. Jeannette Núñez (R) said at the news conference that the bill was in line with efforts to remove critical race theory teachings and other “woke terms” in the classroom. Critical race theory is an academic framework used at the graduate level that analyzes U.S. history and institutions through the lens of racism.

“Throughout this country, we are seeing communism and socialism being romanticized,” she said at a press conference. “Positive attitudes are at an all time high in this country. But not here in Florida, because freedom, not Marxism, has a home here in the free state of Florida.”.........

I agree with what he said, but I think the most important part is almost left for last - GOP attacks on right to vote, the most basic freedom of American democracy.  Then the right to organize (unions).

Republicans have not been for "freedom" since the days of Goldwater and Reagan.  Most people forget or never knew that the ultra-conservative, extremist, segregationist and so forth Democrats abandoned the party in 1964 and later to become REPUBLICANS.  The foundations of the current Republican Party are these very same people.

Another example where the GOP believe by denying freedom they are promoting freedom. 

"we are seeing communism and socialism being romanticized":   So what?   If capitalism is sooooo much better than those other two,   what are GOPers afraid of?

An educated, thinking, democracy loving voter.

The irony is that I am not sure there is or ever was a true Communist country.  The countries claiming to be communist were merely just another form of dictatorship - sort of what the GOPers really want in America.

Thanks.  This shows the dumbness of too many Republicans and the people who vote for them.  

Sunsetting every Federal law would necessitate a massive bureaucracy just to handle the "paperwork" for reconsideration of each law.   It takes forever to get a bill through both houses of Congress now, but Scott wants to create a HUGE increase in number of bills to be considered every year.

Why didn't he do this when he was governor of FL?  Because it is a dumb, expensive and unworkable idea.

His plan to make everybody pay taxes is also unworkable and would be hugely expensive.  It would require a massive increase in the IRS, especially for the lawyers to contest the non-payers such as Trump and many corporations.

South Carolina legislature will come back into special session once Roe v. Wade decision is released by Supreme Court.  Current law which will become effective that day calls for no abortions after six weeks.

So, obviously the Republican dominated government has every intention of rushing new, more restrictive anti-abortion laws into effect ASAP.  Will not wait for the regularly scheduled session which begins Jan. 2023.  NOTE:  senators and governor are not running this year, but all house members are.  Current session supposed to end June if they get the budget and everything else done on time, but seldom do.

Even though currently in session, rules prevent introduction of new legislation at this point.

This special session will be at extra cost to the taxpayers since the legislators will receive extra pay.

This type of over-the-top  rhetoric can only hurt the cause.    Haven't libs and Dems learned from the deplorable comment.   Labeling an entire political party as 'evil' isn't going to help change the minds of non-partisans or moderates.

The killer was only 18.   One parent is a Dem,  the other a Republican.     Based on his age I assume he has never voted in any election.

The new difference is that Republicans and people who vote Republican countenance the racist attitude of many.  While most will not go out and kill people, in their hearts they don't see the big problem.

I agree though that over the top rhetoric can hurt the Dem cause.

MSM tend to label specific 'issues' into one 'big problem' and then this is how most partisans view these specific 'issues',  and then the major parties can't compromise because any compromise doesn't address the 'big problem'.       So instead of incremental changes to addressed specific issues associated with a major topic (immigration,  reproductive rights, social-justice,  access to guns etc...),    no changes are made OR when one party gets enough power too-many changes are made.

As Republicans Mitch McConnell and House speakers have shown over past years, they are opposed to "incremental changes" because the GOPer base is opposed to any changes except to further strengthen the desires of the base.

What you illustrate is what I few as the problem;    a partisan that believes all the problems are due to the other side.

Not sure what you meant, but McConnell and the Republican House leaders have shown over the past few years a great reluctance to offend the base by compromising or even discussing issues.   That's fact, not opinion.

And so have Pelosi and Schumer.    Granted not as often as McConnell but it has occurred.    Take immigration reform:   DACA applicants would be citizens by now if the Dems had agreed that such applicants can't sponsor the illegal immigrants that brought them here to become citizens.     Dems should have accepted this deal (even if it favored GOP proposals over Dem ones) and then worked to grant more illegal immigrants amnesty via future legislations.     

Instead both Dems and GOPer are left holding an empty bag which in most cases benefits the GOP.

This is just my take here.  I don't expect you to agree and maybe I'm wrong and the issue is 99% GOP obstruction.
