In the world of hypothetical questions, one must ask an important one: What would have happened if Ron DeSantis was President on January 6, 2021, and he just lost the elections? What would he have done? We know exactly what Donald Trump did, which only failed not because the 45th President did not try hard enough, but because he is a verifiable incompetent nitwit.
However, with a smarter Ron DeSantis on the verge of announcing his candidacy, and Trump facing existential legal problems that will certainly put a damper on his electability, the American voter has the right to ask him the question because DeSantis might follow in Trump’s footsteps should he win and lose again. We need to understand where DeSantis stands on this issue. Especially that President Biden approval numbers cannot guarantee his re-election.
Ron DeSantis was aloof and distant when he served in Congress, which point to a superiority complex commensurate with extreme Narcissism.
THE SAME NARCISSISM AND THE SAME AUTHORITARIANISM
If one compares the personality traits of Donald Trump with those of Ron DeSantis, one would find the same elements that prompted Trump to try to overturn the elections in 2021. Mainly, that both are extreme narcissists who cannot bother to define themselves within the context of a vibrant democracy, and both have authoritarian tendencies that challenge the rule of law.
In fact, there are plenty of data to show some of these traits, mainly how Ron DeSantis was aloof and distant when he served in Congress, which point to a superiority complex commensurate with extreme Narcissism.
Furthermore, Ron DeSantis boasts the same authoritarianism and despotism that marked Trump’s 4-year term in office. If you recall Trump deploying military helicopters to disperse peaceful protesters, or asking his staff whether he can “shoot them in the legs or something.” DeSantis would have done exactly the same thing given his thin skin, if not more.
We simply cannot afford to have another angry white nationalist reach the apex of power again.
DESANTIS IS TRUMP ON STEROIDS
Under similar circumstances, which Trump faced, such as the likes of large protests, or losing an election, what would Ron DeSantis do, in your opinion? Taking into consideration that DeSantis banned books and dehumanized migrants, both of which represent the early stages of an autocrat moving to stifle liberties and freedoms.
Not to digress, but Hitler also burned books and dehumanized the Jews of Europe.
If one has just a slither of a doubt that DeSantis might duplicate, replicate, emulate, or follow in the footsteps of Donald Trump, one must vote for President Biden again. This country cannot afford another fascist leader attempting to break our institutions because the majority of the American public refutes their brand of conservatism.
We simply cannot afford to have another angry white nationalist reach the apex of power again. Unlike Trump, DeSantis is smarter and a bit more competent, which also means if he tried to replicate Trump, he might succeed in installing himself as the permanent commander-in-chief.
We believe on January 6, 2021, DeSantis would have deployed the military to take control of the government. Or at least tried to.
