Florida governor Ron DeSantis has been criticised by LGBT+ campaigners after officials in Jacksonville were told to turn off lights that were put up in support of Pride Month.

According to the city of Jacksonville, it was told by Florida’s Department of Transportation to turn off rainbow lights on the Acosta Bridge because it was “out of compliance”.

That's okay, the more people DeSantis pisses off the better. Getting him defeated is the most important thing.

So he cancelled Culture Club ?

Just remember.... Florida Voters in the majority are very, very, reactionarily right wing. This sort of crap is raw meat to his voters. What next ? Everyone has to own a gun ? Registered Democratic Party members are enemies of the state and get rounded up ?

What will the SCOTUS do when a useful lawsuit about this law reaches them ?

Yes, the name of the game with conservatives is to outrage and see what sticks to the wall, which is why all it takes is real pushback sometimes for them to slink back to the cave. FL DOT can follow a simple directive at first, but then find some backbone when criticized.

Now it’s up to DeSantis to escalate, instead of pontificate. Let him keep pushing rightward. It’s not a long term strategy, it’s desperation and pyrrhic victories.
