ANNALS OF DeSANTISTAN: Ron DeSantis fumes about ‘so many foreigners’ studying at U.S. universities. (Florida Politics)

Our gasbag inarticulate former Congressman, Florida Boy Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS, hates foreigners.  Add xenophobia to the list of his ideological perversions.  Add "foreigners" to the list of people whom he hates.  Our Nation of Immigrants would not exist without "foreigners."  Foreign students bring new perspectives and also pay higher tuition.  Shameless DON DeSANTIS is trolling for KKK and KKK-adjacent votes.  Spread his shame.  Look forward to Nikki Haley beating him in debate.

Ron DeSantis fumes about ‘so many foreigners’ studying at U.S. universities

The Florida Governor says colleges should be 'doing more American students' instead.

Florida’s Governor is telling Granite State residents that there are too many “foreigners” at American universities, in his latest appeal to Republican Primary voters.

“I think these universities should be doing more American students anyways. Why are we trying to bring in so many foreigners? But anyways, they do it,” Ron DeSantis said in Laconia, New Hampshire.

He contended that “foreign students don’t have the right” to study domestically. Then he offered a more familiar promise that he says he’d fulfill if elected President.

“If you’re on a student visa and you’re making common cause with Hamas here, I’m going to cancel your visa and send you home.”

The Governor made the comments at an event staged by the Never Back Downsuper PAC.

Though he hasn’t condemned “foreigners” at universities writ large until now, DeSantis has had plenty to say about Hamas and Palestinians during the course of this campaign.

DeSantis has used Palestinians as a punching bag on the 2024 campaign trail. He has claimed that stateside pro-Palestinian protesters are “bozos” who are “advocating a second Holocaust.” He has also attempted to eliminate student chapters at Florida universities that he says support “Hamas terrorism.” However, that move appears to have been squashed for the moment.

Additionally, the state just held a Special Session of the Legislature that was largely devoted to supporting Israel symbolically.

More recently, the Governor griped about Bethlehem, which is controlled by Palestinian Arabs, as a “pigsty” and went on to complain about a historic mosque next to the Church of the Nativity.

It's all about autarky (which Hitler was quite fond of as well), isolationism, and so called anti-globalism. The rest of the world is supposed to make America rich in a myriad of ways and not the other way around. They don't view cooperation as mutually beneficial only they have a competitive, zero sum game worldview. These are the sorts of people who quite frankly won't hesitate to take military action over some disagreement or some other situation that diplomacy could overcome. Authoritarian regimes that offer their people little else tend to demonize an external enemy or other countries to justify their existence but that's not really necessary here. God forbid the man get creative and lay out a plan to make more people's lives better.
