God Made a Fighter

Twitter
barf smiley

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) released a new campaign ad on Friday ahead of Election Day next week that depicts him as a “fighter” for God.

DeSantis’s wife, Casey, posted the ad on her Twitter account, saying to her husband, “On behalf of millions of people, never stop fighting for freedom.”

The narrator’s lines in the ad appear to be based on a speech that radio broadcaster Paul Harvey gave in 1978, entitled “So God Made a Farmer.”

“And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, ‘I need a protector.’ So God made a fighter,” DeSantis’s ad begins.

The ad shows pictures of DeSantis meeting with officials and civilians while serving as governor. It describes a series of traits God “said” he needs in someone, including a willingness to “travel thousands of miles for no other reason than to serve the people, to save their jobs, their livelihoods, their liberty, their happiness.”

The narrator’s description of each trait ends in him saying, “So God made a fighter.”

How about “Ron DeSanctimonious”:

[www.thedailybeast.com]

During his rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, while touting his poll numbers (from a month ago), Trump found an opening to take a swing at DeSantis, who’s quickly turned into an unofficial 2024 Republican presidential rival.

“There it is, Trump at 71. Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent,” Trump said. “Mike Pence at 7–oh, Mike Pence doing better than I thought.” (It’s the first time Trump’s tried out the nickname, but longtime ally Roger Stone—a fierce DeSantis critic—posted the dig about a week ago.)

The reactions to the Trump name-calling weren’t favorable in conservative circles. [Followed by quotes from several hard right conservatives.]

“Trump’s going to end up doing to DeSantis and his wife what he did to Cruz and his wife,” a Trump adviser told The Daily Beast.

DeSantis and Trump plan to be in Florida on Sunday and hold competing rallies over 240 miles apart.

“Trump is going to try to destroy him,” an adviser said.

If DeSantis is God's choice, then Nietzsche was right - God is Dead.

I'll give him this much: it's a good nickname, and one I've been using under my breath for some time.

But the religious zealots may take unkind to it.

I liked one of the Twitter responses mentioned in a Huffpost article about this:
“This is illiberal, anti-democratic, anti-American, christofascist propaganda. Holy hell.”
