Florida's culture clash pits Gillum against Trump voters

There are 209 comments on the Washington Times story from Monday Oct 22, titled Florida's culture clash pits Gillum against Trump voters. In it, Washington Times reports that:

It has nothing to do with his race, they insist, when asked about the 39-year-old Democrat who could become the state's first African-American governor. Instead, The Villages' deeply conservative residents are convinced a Gillum victory would trigger an era of high crime, higher taxes and moral failing.

They said it wasn't about race when they deployed their simian racist dog whistle against him, also, so what they say has no bearing on their latent or overt white supremacism and appeals to it.

Florida is a state that appeals to many people on Social Security. They know what will happen if they vote Democrat. The Democrats were in power from 2008, until 2016. What did they do for you Seniors? Did you get a bigger check in 2018? Are you getting a 2.8 percent increase in January 2019? Don't let the Democrats stiff you like they did when we had the First Black President.

I heard jaysus says you're not supposed to lie. Did you get a waiver from jaysus?

"[Black Democrat] Gillum responds to [white, Republican opponent DeSantis']'monkey this up' comment."

OTOH, "black, Democratic 'monkeying it up'" equals "g.d. communist" in talibangelical-world. So the two insults are really the same insult.

Gillum is very close to his brother, and the Feds are looking at both of them for corruption. Our friends live in Florida. They voted for all Democrats, except for Governor.

When I take over, Trump supporters will be considered mentally disabled, and stripped of their voting rights.

Identity politics are on the way out. People are seeking candidates prepared to take the political position serious, and get the job done. It doesn't matter if the candidate is black, white, pink, or purple, just be ready to do the job. Gillum is not ready.

He's black which disqualifies him in the eyes of racist reTHUGlicans like you. It's why you do racist ads and robocalls against him, filth.

The Republican ads against Gillum were nothing but lies...I think that turned voters off. Why do Republicans do nothing but lie? Are they just following Daddy's example?

Gillum may actually win. At least I hope so.

Lying is all the Republicans have. The truth is not on their side.

Exactly. Lies, fearmongering and conjuring up false enemies is their closing argument in every election. Same crap, just a different year.
