When DeSantis Dehumanizes the Latino Migrants

When DeSantis Dehumanizes the Latino Migrants
In July of this year, Ron DeSantis attended a conference that also hosted Swastika waving right-wing Nazis.

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida dispatched two planes carrying 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in an act of defiance over the immigration policies of the United States under the Democrats. Think about this barbarity for a moment. A Governor whose ancestors hailed from Italy as immigrants is paying back the country that welcomed his grandparents by treating other migrants as pariahs. When DeSantis dehumanizes the Latino migrants, no one is safe from the hardship that callousness inflicts on poor migrant mothers and children by White Supremacists miscreants.

Had his grandparents met the same fate DeSantis is leveling against other migrants today, he might have grown to be a broken man. Fearful of his fate. But the warm welcome his grandparents received turned him into a cold and depraved man.

In brief, DeSantis never suffered the humiliation of finding refuge. Nor probably did his grandparents.

The ancestors of the two Republican front runners for the White House in 2024 come from two countries in Europe both of which gave rise to two of the most notorious men in modern history: Hitler and Mussolini.

THE POLITICS OF DEHUMANIZING HUMANS

When DeSantis, and his counterpart in Texas Governor Greg Abbott, act so mercilessly against poor migrants trying to find a better life in America, they, indirectly, dehumanize them. In the eyes of the GOP voters and supporters, the migrants turn into animals for slaughter.

If the Latino community in the United States does not stand up to the Republican dehumanizing their people, there will come a time for all Latinos to face the backlash of White Supremacist brutal actions.

What do you think police killing of unarmed black men is all about?

If all Latinos do not see DeSantis action as an act to brutalize their communities, which hails mostly from Central and South America, then their leaders are utterly incompetent. It’s the first step to keeping the White Supremacists in power even though the demographics, in concert with crashing white birth rates, are changing rapidly in favor of people of color.

Who will rise next in the GOP? A Hideki Tojo emulator?

MUSSOLINI REINCARNATED

In July of this year, Ron DeSantis attended a conference that also hosted Swastika waving right-wing Nazis. One would expect, after this incident, for DeSantis to condemn the group he spoke before few feet away from his podium. In fact, he stayed mum about the whole incident, which makes you wonder where are we going in this country when he is a front runner for President of the United States.

The ancestors of the two Republican front runners for the White House in 2024 come from two countries in Europe both of which gave rise to two of the most notorious men in modern history: Hitler and Mussolini. Geographic coincidence? Most definitely. But is DeSantis Mussolini reincarnated? After all, banning books, acting with cruelty against people of color, prohibiting the teachings of the critical race theory, and suppressing voting rights are all Mussolini-like extreme actions.

Who will rise next in the GOP? A Hideki Tojo emulator?

Think about this notion and ask yourself how far a danger our country has to face before people wake up to the inadequacy and instability of those two men.

Grant you, any GOP front runner ancestors could have hailed from a number of other countries. But the coincidence is worth mentioning even though it really is meaningless.
