Matt Gaetz is a Republican Representative from Florida’s first district. His overly zealous support of Trump proves that he doesn’t love his country, or the people of his state, but he does love the sound of his own voice. Although they are baseless and fallacious, Gaetz has an opinion about everything.
His latest rant was in defense of the white couple who threatened peaceful marchers in St. Louis. They stood in front of their home and shouted at the men and women exercising their first amendment rights, while pointing guns at them.
“In Joe Biden’s America your job is illegal, you are locked in your home, borders don’t exist, MS-13 lives next door and the police aren’t coming when the mob arrives. This is all of us.” Just minutes after Gaetz tweeted his bullshit, twitter was overwhelmed with responses which were less than kind.
One week ago Gaetz tweeted another very racist remark; he just can’t help himself.
“Some might call that ‘male privilege or ‘white privilege.’ You know what? Those terms are just racist terms to try to tell people to shut up, and we’re done being quiet.”
Trump, Gaetz, Moscow Mitch, and other racists are very angry today. Polls reveal that 70 percent of all Americans support the Black Lives Matter movement, while the white men in the Republican Party are running scared, fearing that the three-and-one-half years of supporting the worst president in history will cost them their reelection bids.
The American people must vote for other Americans. With the exception of Mitt Romney, not a single Republican in name only loves his or her country. If they did, they would refuse to support Putin’s puppet.
