American Ledger — a corruption watchdog news site — reported Wednesday that DeSantis is one of 52 administrators and moderators for the “Tea Party” Facebook group that is also co-run by failed Arizona Senate candidate Kelli Ward.

The GOP candidate’s participation in the large administrator pool was first revealed on Tuesday by Media Matters extremism researcher Natalie Martinez, who posted screenshots of a string of DeSantis campaign posts in the group. She later learned that another administrator named the candidate as one of the group’s admins.

The “Tea Party” group has nearly 95,000 members, the Ledger reported. In the past, group members have posted about the “ghetto scum” that is Black Lives Matter and made fun of the Parkland massacre survivors.

“One member believed the violent far-right rally of neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 was a hoax,” the report noted, “writing in a post liked by 1,600 users that the rally was ‘orchestrated by the left’ to ‘destroy America.’”

Okay, so I guess we can all stop pretending that when DeSantis warned Florida voters not to “monkey this up” by electing the first black gubernatorial candidate that he did not mean what we all know he meant.

    Conservative gadfly Ben Bergquam and other Trump backers walked around the Google and Facebook campuses Thursday recording livestream video and demanding answers about how the tech companies present data to consumers, >“Stop the leftist propaganda, stop censoring conservatives,” Bergquam shouted on a Facebook Live stream as he toured Google. “We’re on public access. Stop the leftist propaganda, guys. Anybody want to make a comment on the collusion between Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube? The collusion to undermine our country, anybody? Anybody want to make a comment on the collusion to undermine our country and our president?” “He then went to Facebook headquarters to complain about his social media page being removed, although both his personal and activist organization Frontline America accounts are now active.”
    ““The companies that were founded on this idea of free exchange of ideas have become the thought police,”

    “The conservative Club for Growth announced this week that it would spend seven figures on Cruz’s behalf after Labor Day. Until that cavalry arrives, the Texas Republican Party will hold the line.”

    “In essence, that means that preliminary discovery—a pre-hearing collection of available information about the dispute—yielded sufficient facts that a reasonable jury could potentially find that teams, and perhaps the league, had an implied or express agreement to blackball Kaepernick. His attorneys are arguing that a joint decision to keep him out was in part a response to pressure by President Donald Trump, who has vocally criticized the anthem protests and said any player who kneels is a “son of a bitch.”

    $omeone pretending to be Gillum who puts on “an exaggerated minstrel dialect” while “jungle noises” are played in the background…
    The calls end with a disclaimer, the paper reports, that say the calls are being sponsored by “The Road to Power, an anti-Semitic, white supremacist website and podcast linked to Scott Rhodes of Sandpoint, Idaho.”
    “According to the Des Moines Register, a sister paper of the Tallahassee Democrat, the group has been linked to other robocall campaigns in Charlottesville, Virginia, Oregon and California.”

    I think churches are also a feeding ground for developing racist groups. The man on the pulpit no longer teaches the word of God but the word of man. It’s getting crazier out there. I need to go and find a cave because so much shit it happening. The average American who has the voting power to turn this around is as ignorant as the next guy and does not believe that America could get so radical. With the help of Putin we are almost there.

    OT? “Courts have ruled that the program can stay in place for now, although new applications will not be accepted.”
