Undercover Video: Gillum Staffers Call Florida a ‘Cracker State,’ Admit He Makes Promises He Can’t Keep
“You go to Port St. Lucie, Orlando…man them crackers ain’t gonna let us do that s**t dawg.”
Project Veritas released its latest video on Wednesday, which shows staffers for Florida Democrat governor candidate Andrew Gillum throwing racial slurs against white people, criticizing the state, and admitting he makes promises he cannot keep.
The undercover journalist asked Omar Smith, who claimed he went to college with Gillum, about receiving funding for all the programs Gillum has promised to implement:
SMITH: “That’s not for them to know… That’s not for them to know. Remember our saying, modern day fairy tales start with ‘once I am elected.’”
Smith explains that most of Gillum’s campaign promises could never be implemented, and that the Gillum campaign knows this:
SMITH: “So, let’s go back to Mr. Gillum’s platform, right? Raise the corporate tax in Florida from 7 to 11 percent. That will never happen. Raise teacher’s pay to $50,000, that will never happen. Give me another position. Medicare for all, that will never happen. The reason being, the legislature that write the bills is all Republican controlled. Democratic governor, Republican legislature. So, unless the legislature writes a bill, and it got voted on the floor, it cannot pass.”
Smith stressed Florida needs to change the racial makeup in the legislature in order for Gillum to do everything he wants to do, which led to his racial tirade against white people.
Smith called Florida “a f***ed up ass state” and a “cracker state.” He continued:
Get it? Ask anybody outside of here. You go to Port St. Lucie, Orlando…man them crackers ain’t gonna let us do that s**t dawg. Boy, you crazy? I lived in Tallahassee for 10 years, I’ve seen it. I went to a black college. Even my father wife, she like oh them crackers gonna take over FAMU (Florida A&M University). N***a’s ain’t ever gonna be s**t, they can’t get it right. I hear that s**t so much, I’m like y’all mother f***ers crazy. Really?
So to change all this, Smith said, “You have to appeal to white guilt.”
The journalist asked if it has to be done by force. Smith responded that “we’re voting for him hoping that once he make it, somebody else will pick up the fight to make sure that the proper, the proper legislators get in office when we vote again in August, to execute the agenda of the Governor.”
Another staffer said, “Progressive is like the Tea Party of the Democrats.” Smith then interrupted, “It’s the far right. Medicare for all, borderline Socialism.”
The journalist thought this meant the Blue Wave the Democrats keep talking about, but Smith said that is the Progressive agenda and they “are the crazy crazy crazy Democrats.”
Then Smith admitted that “Gillum is a Progressive” and “part of the crazy crazy crazies.”
Field organizer Christian Rodriguez told the journalist that while Gillum is a full blown progressive, he cannot portray himself as that because the campaign needs “the people who are independent votes, we need moderates, we need everyone.”
Smith went further: “… We don’t, do we have to let [the voters] know what the agenda is ahead of time? We can’t… We cannot… You alienate everybody. Then you get painted like, oh, Gillum is being painted, no. You are a socialist, you are way out of left field…”
Cliff Eserman of the Broward County Democratic Party said that Gillum had to show his far left side in order to win the primary, but it’s normal that in the general election, “he’s going back to left of center.”
Eserman also informed the journalist that while Gillum “does believe in Medicare for all,” that issue “is a federal issue.”
Then there’s gun control:
Dale Holeness, who is the Broward County Commissioner and also works on Gillum’s campaign, explains Gillum’s gun control views:
HOLENESS: “There ought to be at least a three-day waiting period for everybody and a full background check for everybody… And we need to- And these automatic guns with sixteen rounds a minute, they ought to not be on the streets either, so that’s his plan.”
Adrian Young, who works for the Florida Democratic Party also elaborates on Gillum’s gun control views in the report:
YOUNG: “… I do think he’s not saying specifically like I’m going to ban bump stocks or I’m against ATs, only because he’s running a race right now. I do think he would support anybody doing that stuff, Bill Nelson… But I don’t think he can say it just [be]cause he’s trying to get the moderates and the gun-toting people in North Florida…”
