DeSantis Derangement Syndrome?

Posted on | June 22, 2021 | Comments Off on DeSantis Derangement Syndrome?

During Saturday’s LGBT “pride” parade in the Broward County, Florida, community of Wilton Manors, a truck went out of control and ran over two members of the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FLGMC), killing one of them and severely injuring the other. The truck, as it turns out, was driven by an elderly member of the FLGMC who, because of health problems was unable to walk the parade route, so the organizers had chosen him to drive the lead vehicle in the parade. His foot slipped and hit the accelerator — an accident — but immediately after this accident, before it was known what had happened, Democrats pounced:

Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Mayor Dean Trantalis (D) said that an incident on Saturday in which a pickup truck ran into a crowd at a Pride parade, leaving one person dead, was a “terrorist attack against the LGBT community.”
A white pickup truck ran over two people, killing one, in Wilton Manors, Fla., just outside of Fort Lauderdale. The vehicle reportedly barely missed Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D), who was riding in a convertible at the parade.
“This is a terrorist attack against the LGBT community,” Trantalis, who was in attendance at the parade, told local station WPLG. “This is exactly what it is. Hardly an accident. It was deliberate, it was premeditated, and it was targeted against a specific person. Luckily they missed that person, but unfortunately, they hit two other people.”

For a while Saturday, #DeathSantis was trending on Twitter, because of a (bizarre and irrational) belief that this alleged “terrorist attack” was somehow related to the anti-rioting bill that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently signed into law. But even if this had been an anti-gay “hate crime” (which it wasn’t), there was nothing about the anti-rioting bill that would have applied to such a circumstance. The whole thing was a paranoid delusion, symptomatic of the fear-based agenda of the Democratic Party, in which everything is organized around a struggle against forces of oppression. When they’re not busy shrieking about homophobia, Democrats lecture us about the insidious power of “systemic racism,” warn us that voter ID laws are “disenfranchising” black people, and claim climate change is destroying the planet.

This is the entirety of their agenda — all fear, all the time — and we should not be surprised by the hysteria it produces.
