President John F. Kennedy said in 1964, "we must make the world safe for diversity."
In contrast, our supercilious incoming Florida Speaker of the House shows his animus amid animadversions against LGBTQ people. What a maniacal jerk.
PAUL RENNER attacked "Drag Queen Story Hour" two (2) days after a murderous attack on Colorado Springs Gay bar patrons on the Transgender Day of Remembrance -- a murderous attack on transgender people by the 22 year old grandson of an anti-LGBTQIA California legislator.
PAUL RENNER is out of his mind -- albeit a cartoonish, narrow mind full of hate and spite -- if he thinks being a legislator means targeting discrimination victims for hateful attacks on his first day as Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives.
RENNER's sense of timing is execrable -- only two (2) days after anti-Trans homicides, and on the 59th anniversary of JFK's assassination, and two (2) days before Thanksgiving. It is an insult to all LGBTQIA people and our families.
RENNER's remarks remind me of the time when the St. Augustine Record, then owned by Morris Communications, printed an extremely hateful anti-Gay letter on Thanksgiving Day. Lousy timing.
Does RENNER need a checkup from the neck up?
Corporate lawyer PAUL RENNER was elected to represent Flagler County and the southern part of St. Johns County after moving here for the express purpose of running for office, having been defeated by two votes in a Duval County Republican Primary.
PAUL RENNER appears to be a dutifully loyal American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) supporter and another louche lickspittle for the rich and powerful. ALEC peddles corporate and rightist agendas to its willing accomplices, unoriginal, other-directed Dull Republican state legislators.
Speaker PAUL RENNER's character will soon be on display to the world. Does PAUL RENNER support changing state law at the drop of a hat? Will he vote too allow Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS to run for President without requiring him to resign to run, as under current resign-to-run law?
DeSANTIS resembles a whinier version of the late racist Alabama Governor George Corley Wallace. Like George Wallace, DeSANTIS has support from corrupt craven critters, like RENNER.
The rich and powerful who own the soulless Republican Party whip up bigoted Bubbas by abusing hatred of Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, Lesbians and Transgender people as KKK style recruiting posters.
We've grown accustomed to such sibilant sinister flummery, dupery and nincompoopery here in North Flori-DUH. People have grown immune to developer-funded postcards from the edge and money bombs in campaigns captained by the like of former St. Augustine City Manager WILLIAM BARRY HARRISS, developer and State Senator TRAVIS JAMES HUTSON, and former Sheriff DAVID SHOAR (who legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994).
These caudillos and their casuistry poison the well of democracy with aminadversions and diversions, such as our unenlightened St. Johns County School Board's transgender bathroom case, where millions of dollars have been spent on lawyers defending the indefensible in the case of Drew Adams v. St. Johns County School Board.
PAUL RENNER is inattentive to constituent concerns in the Dull ME-Publicans'
Since 2015, I have seen PAUL RENNER go through the motions at annual meetings of the St. Johns County Legislative Delegation, where I have supported the St. Augustine National Historical Park and National Seashore at every meeting since 2006. RENNER never sticks around to talk with people. He appears to me to be vain and self-absorbed. He's never asked a question of any significance of any speaker.
I find bumptious, bigoted PAUL RENNER to be lacking in social skills, inattentive, insouciant and insolent.
When House Speaker Paul Renner was duked into the Speaker gig by members of his classless Dull Republican legislative class in 2018, assuming the Republicans would still control the House in 2022, all of the members of his class prayed.
To PAUL RENNER: Try tolerance. Show a little class. Sit up straight, sir, and listen to what people are telling you, from this day forward, sir
Listen and learn from what we tell you at our December 19, 2022 Legislative Delegation.
You must work for us, and not for corporations that hire you as a corporate lawyer, from now on.
You sound like a pompous ass, with your drooling dueling ideological perversions.
You work for us, not ALEC.
As Robert Kennedy said, "What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love, and wisdom, and compassion toward one another; and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black."
Pray for PAUL RENNER.
