Casey DeSantis Derangement Syndrome: Alligator Image On Jacket Criticizing Wokeness Is Racist!

Casey DeSantis Derangement Syndrome: Alligator Image On Jacket Criticizing Wokeness Is Racist!

Attacks on the wife of Ron DeSantis are increasing from all political directions. That tells you something right there.

The left has found a new person to obsess over and criticize. Florida’s First Lady, Casey DeSantis, has already been slimed by Politico, and the Daily Beast called her a ‘Walmart Melania,’ but the left is only getting warmed up.

The latest non-troversy is over a leather jacket Mrs. DeSantis recently wore in Iowa. This is not just criticism. It’s a special blend of crazy and stupid.

Here are a few reactions to that tweet:

The Insider wrote about the jacket:

Casey DeSantis wore a leather ‘Where Woke Goes to Die’ jacket in 85-degree weather in Iowa

With his candidacy for president now official, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his wife Casey have vowed to visit all 99 counties in Iowa.

The couple on Saturday attended their first Roast and Ride, an annual event hosted by Sen. Joni Erst, in Des Moines, where Casey wore a leather coat emblazoned with an illustration of an alligator over an outline of the state of Florida, along with a statement that echoes one of her husband’s key campaign messages: “Where Woke Goes to Die.”

As Politico notes, it was 85 degrees during the event.

The term “woke” is a keystone of DeSantis’s presidential campaign and is something he repeatedly mentioned during his successful second gubernatorial run.

The left’s unhinged attacks on Casey DeSantis are already so over the top that even the far-left hosts of the Young Turks are calling it out:

Megyn Kelly recently discussed the issue with Jesse Kelly:

The left is about to show us that their insanity was never really about Trump. It is about any Republican who might win.

I’ll leave you with this observation from Ace of Spades:

Note the almost-comical and brazen message: DeSantis is worse than Trump, and Casey DeSantis is worse than the woman we demonized for seven years, Melania.

They’re not even embarrassed of this crude propaganda, or that literally everyone in the world predicted it.

They don’t mind being predictable in service of the Marxist-Maoist cause.

    I just took the time to look at his twitter entry. Democrat, studies black history, and…. (wait for it…) is bla, er, Black.

Remember when Mitt Romney was the devil? If they will portray Mittens as a horrible, evil conservative, then what must they think of, well, anybody who is even remotely conservative?

I heard this today and I have to admit that even I am stunned. What “Dr” could come up with this nonsense but the appalling fact is that there are many so warped they will listen.

    A Dr of Education? Black Studies?

      A psychologist, professor emeritus at Florida International University who has written several books about racism in Florida. Also a progressive Leftist. From his tweets he clearly hates DeSantis. One tweet references the fact that UF was forced to ditch its “Gator Bait” battle cry, which had been used for 25 years, because the phrase had been associated with this “historic racial imagery.” Over the 25 years that thousands of UF students— black and white— have used the term, how often has the phrase conjured up this imagery? Interestingly, the UF football player who originated the phrase, who is black, was opposed to the battle cry being banned.

      With Dunn, I suppose it could simply be a matter of him being a hammer, seeing nails everywhere. But there were truly horrendous racist events in Florida. It seems to me that by calling an innocuous jacket or a beloved school battle cry “Racist”, one diminishes the truly despicable acts of racism that existed.

        “One tweet references the fact that UF was forced to ditch its “Gator Bait” battle cry, which had been used for 25 years, because the phrase had been associated with this “historic racial imagery.””

        A perfect time for a Dean with [some contents in his Speedo] to tell the good professor, “Shut up and teach.”. But, no, the good Dean and other administrators danced to his marionette strings like good little white folks, and that is that.

        A very cogent and informative comment! It’s all about emotional manipulation of a targeted segment to acquire more money, affirmation, or power. Demagogues are unfortunately ubiquitous, and quite opportunistic, so racial conflict draws them like flies. They feed on the fears and frustrations of the gullible and uninformed, which which is why they cluster at universities, as well as wherever there is a breakdown of social order. They gain power the worse things get, which is why they actively seek to bring harm and chaos. They are fundamentally cynical narcissists, and will abandon causes and followers when they no longer useful. This adaptability can make some of them quite durable and persistent, a la Al Sharpton. The media love them because of the attention they generate. But they also stir up disgust after a while, and that eventually becomes their undoing.

Common on. Alligators are hardly an obscure racial reference. Look at all those statutes of Jefferson Davis standing next to an alligator. And you can’t watch any movie depicting the antebellum south without running into a damn alligator. Song of the South is full of them. They were originally even part of the Disney ride

“Black babies as alligator bait was a theme in racist Florida humor of the early 1900s. It’s an inside joke. If you are not from Florida, you may not get it. …”

Casey’s from Zanesville, Ohio.

BTW “Dr.” Dunn — could you tell us how many black babies have been aborted in the past hundred or so years?

    Answer: Way more than enough to have gotten Hillary elected President, absent Roe v. Wade.

“ The latest non-troversy is over a leather jacket Mrs. DeSantis recently wore in Iowa.”

Thank you for the “Mrsl and not “Mzzzzz”.

Now, please, how about “leftist”, not “liberal?

I’ve lived in the deep south my entire 58 years and this is not true.
Anyone that has gone Alligator hunting knows that a small, yapping dog is the preferred bait.
I have never heard about black babies as bait.
What the hell is wrong with these people?

    This was my reaction, too. I have lived in Florida for most of my life (excluding grad school), and I have never heard of this, either. If you have to dig back 200 years to “prove” someone is racist in 2023, you are a race-baiting clown. Period. This is all nonsense from start to finish.

      “Black babies as alligator bait was a theme in racist Florida humor of the early 1900s”
      A concern troll fishing back over 100 years for a racist tweet from a completely different (and dead) person is quite likely a record.

      I came to Florida in 1972. Alligators and Crocodiles were both on the endangered species list. You literally had to go boating in the Everglades to find one. Now they are ubiquitous throughout the state. I was a teenager when I came here. Right during the transition to hard integration. Some how we found a way to acceptance and friendship. It wasn’t easy, but we did it. 50 years later we are almost back to where we started. SMH

For Democrats it’s always a hundred years ago.

The d/prog have been captured by the deranged lefties and don’t care to hide it any longer. Their geriatric leadership has let the lunatic lefties set their agenda so they can cling to the trappings of their office and power, at least the power they haven’t yet surrendered to the loons. Everyone is an ‘ist’ and everything is an ‘ism’ but only when it isn’t ‘phobic’, except when it is both simultaneously.

It’s a fun image on the jacket. I’d get one if I were a Floridian.

The woke left is clearly more terrified of DeSantis because he knows how to win, fight the woke world and govern

Black babies are medical supply material for liberal medical research

Yawn, Melania light

Trying too hard

Feeding black babies to alligators is disgusting. It’s the kind of thing one expects to find in Hunter Biden’s laptop.
