UPDATED June 9, 2023 6:45 AM:
Who will attend a local Republican fundraiser tonight?
Who will see the Florida Republican karma chameleons on display one day after President DONALD JOHN TRUMP reported his indictment on Espionage Act, obstruction of justice and other federal criminal charges?
What will U.S. SENATOR RICHARD LYNN SCOTT, Florida House Speaker PAUL RENNER and other longtime TRUMP supporters say?
Driving under the influence of the Tea Party, you may call today's DONALD JOHN TRUMP Republican Party our American Taliban, as Jeff Daniels and writer Aaron Sorkin did in The Newsroom.
Our local Republican Executive Committee hate group is holding a fundraiser [tonight].
The oddly oxymoronic MOMS FOR LIBERTY's talking head, Ms. QUISHA KING, will join like-minded St. Johns County Republicans for a $125 funderaiser at the St. Johns County Golf and Country Club tonight, June 9,2023.
After I filed an Open Records request last month, our School Board cancelled the June 9, 2023 Republican fundraiser's first venue, our First Coast Technical College, to prevent a probable violation of School Board's longstanding rules against political fundraisers on School property.
June 9, 2023 SJC REC fundraiser speaker QUISHA KING is a former Republican National Committee employee, who inveighs against public schools, inclusion of LGBTQ+ people, critical race theory and "liberal" books. What kooks.
MOMS FOR LIBERTY is now classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Other June 9, 2023 GQP fundraiser speakers include U.S. Senator RICHARD LYNN SCOTT, Florida House Speaker PAUL RENNER and County Commissioner KRISTA KEATING-JOSEPH.
St. Johns County Republicans weren't always anti-Gay.
There is a recent history of angry animus and animadversions attacks on LGBTQ people by St. Johns County's rebarbative Republican ideologue leaders, including:
o Disgraced former County Commissioner JEREMIAH RAY BLOCKER, who sua sponte blocked requests for proclamations for LGBTQ- Pride, as well as School Choice and Worker Memorial Day. BLOCKER lost by 175 votes in the closed Republican Primary to Ms. Krista Keating-Joseph. See BLOCKER Top Ten list with links to dozens of articles, here.
o Former REC Chair and current County Commissioner ROY ALAIMO, Jr., a former DeSANTIS Congressional staffer who was appointed to County Commission by Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS, twice had votes of no confidence by the REC but was named to Commission bob DeSANTIS anyway! Unhinged former PZA member ROY ALAIMO wrote fundraising letters using anti-LGBTQ hate and animus and animadversions about "the Left" to solicit funds, stating that the goal of the local REC was to defeat all Democrats serving on local nonpartisan boards.
o The late SJC REC Chair WILLIAM MARK KORACH, II, fired for misconduct by the Republican Party of Florida, including a savage attack on trans high school student Drew Adams, taking anti-trans rights position without proper approval. State GOP chairman Blaise Ingoglia removed WILLIAM KORACH from his County Chairman post on May 29 on the recommendation of a party grievance committee. The grievance committee was convened after three local party members and a state committeewoman filed a nine-part grievance against him that alleges, among other things, public drunkenness, “improper acts towards females” to include “even touching improperly,” promoting personal opinions on party letterhead, failing to file accounting records, conducting a business meeting without a quorum and improperly electing new members to the committee.
These local American Taliban pols remind me of the September 23, 2011 Republican primary debate in Orlando. Florida Dull Republican anti-Gay bigots booed the YouTube video of an openly Gay Army Captain serving in Iraq, Stephen Snyder-Hill.
June 9, 2023 SJC REC fundraiser tickets are still available for $125: Hobson's choice of chicken or pork.
o No word on whether any known or suspected drag queens will buy tickets or picket the fundraising event.
o No word on whether suspected drag queens will be interrogated, arrested, given ideological purity tests, or subjected to physical examinations or DNA tests by the likes of Commissioner ALAIMO, Senator SCOTT, Speaker RENNER or Ms. QUISHA KING.
Pray for these Republicans.
Pray for them to try tolerance.
