SHOT: Rush Limbaugh dies, FL Gov Ron DeSantis order flags to half-staff on day of interment
…Limbaugh, a longtime resident of Palm Beach, Florida, passed away at 70 on Wednesday from lung cancer, and will be buried in the state. DeSantis announced Friday during a news conference that “once the date of interment for Rush is announced, we’re going to be lowering flags to half-staff.”
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D) announced Monday that she will instruct offices under her control to defy Gov. Ron DeSantis’ order to lower the flags in the state to half-staff in honor of conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh, who passed away last week.
…”Lowering to half-staff the flag of the United States of America is a sacred honor that pays respect to fallen heroes and patriots,” Fried said in a statement. “It is not a partisan political tool. Therefore, I will notify all state offices under my direction to disregard the Governor’s forthcoming order to lower flags for Mr. Limbaugh – because we will not celebrate hate speech, bigotry, and division.”
The agriculture chief added, “Lowering the flag should always reflect unity, not division, and raising our standards, not lowering them. Our flags will remain flying high to celebrate the American values of diversity, inclusion, and respect for all.”
She is the one showing partisan bigotry in this case. She also is continuing the stereotype that Conservatives are always hateful and sowing division – from HER point of view. Typically, she is demonstrating that the Democrat “value” of diversity doesn’t include those that disagree with her, that the Democrat “value” of inclusion has no room for those that hold other opinions, and she’s clearly showing no respect for anyone outside of her tribe.
The Democrats are in a constant flux of projection – and apparently none of them have mirrors in their houses that can reflect back what their actual psyches look like nor how their words sound to others.
IMHO, it is a constant exercise of the Big Lie – continually paint your political AND spiritual opponents with definitions that make them (er, me?) as not just wrong and nasty, but criminals that are due nothing but contempt and dismissal. We know where this tactic arises from – through out the last century it was used by the Left (e.g., Nazis, Fascists, Communists) to demonize those “not them” in order to create “States of Emergency” (like the fencing in of Washington DC against a nebulous threat of QAnon, Antifa, and “white nationalists” (e.g., Trump supporters) and other nefarious (but unnamed) militias that were supposed to ransack DC – or will be soon in the future. You know, just like soon to appear Global Warming Apocalypse) that warrant huge changes in our lives to protect Democrat Power and Representatives.
