Obama said in 2008 "Both parties have monkeyed around." Guess he must be a racist.

A "monkey wrench" fumbles its target up.

To "monkey something up" is to fumble up whats being done.

"The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases, and bankrupting the state..."

He is referring to not monkey it up by Floridians embracing socialism... It has nothing to do with race, but everything to do with not messing up the good fortune Florida has had so far by embracing socialism...

Admit it, the left CAN NEVER admit to be wrong, and only when "the left" says something is racist it must be true...

I think it was a subconscious slip, at best. Okay? I give the guy a pass, this time. If he hints at, or throws racist bait around again, it isn't an accident.

How does recognizing racism, make one racist?


Seeing racists under your bed, where the commies once hid, is all it is.

Ya know, like someone having fair skin and being in the hood. They're obviously racists trying to incite racial riots.

Who would have thought that democrats would elect someone who wants to implement socialism in Florida?...

It is obvious by now that the left, and the elites like Soros, alongside the UN, want a one world socialist regime. They can only achieve that if the U.S. is either socialist or bankrupt, and both would be better. You have got democrats stating that they do want the vote of illegals, so they can drown the votes of law abiding U.S. residents and U.S. citizens.

If back on the 2008 election up to 5.7 million illegals could have voted in the Presidential elections, how many more could be voting now with democrats giving more chances that allow illegals to vote in their states?...

For crying out loud New York has an illegal immigrant, César Vargas, as the first undocumented lawyer. He is in the open to the fact that he is an illegal alien and the government of New York are protecting him... Vargas, like most Mexicans vote as a majority democrat/socialist. The people that Soros and other left-wing Liberals are funding to be brought over to the U.S. as a majority mostly are democrat/socialist, despite the fact that they are trying to escape socialist or even communist regimes.

Obama shut down the last law which allowed Cubans, who as a majority vote Republican, seeking asylum in the U.S., but democrats are doing everything in their power to allow illegals who mostly are democrat/socialist and even communist in the U.S.

Because it is not racist to use a phrase that even DEMOCRATS use...


Context...


Yeah "context, Desantis was talking about "monkey it up by choosing SOCIALISM"... He wasn't referring to Gillum, who quickly tried to make this about "racism..."


Is the monkey an animal commonly used to denigrate socialism? I’ve never heard that before.


Stop monkeying around...

You know fully well what the 'context' was, but it's edgy to go with the flow... a thousand leftists banging randomly on typewritersm might even compile a cogent argument, if given enough time.

I think thee's a trend on the right that is also about being "edgy" right now, and toying with boundaries, going with the presidential "shock and awe" flow.

But, Obama didn't suggest that electing a man, who happens to be black, would "monkey it up".



Actually he said “We've got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction, let’s build off the success we’ve had with Governor Scott. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”

Clearly he meant monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state, because that is exactly what he said.

Strange phrase, "monkey up."

I would have said "Let's not throw a monkey wrench into things." Or "Let's not monkey around with things."

"Monkey up" sounds like he doesn't want more "monkeys" in the mix.

im sure he knows he's pushing the boundaries.

Feels like they are wearing out the word racist to the point where it doesn't mean anything anymore.

No. You shouldn't. Because it's a fallacy/changing the subject. Instead of discussing Desantis you are now making it about Obama. Someone, that, has no reason to be in this discussion. Even if he did say it. It would be irrelevant to the topic if I brought up the fact that many conservatives compared Michelle Obama to an Ape. So let's keep on topic.

And for the record. I neither like nor dislike Obama. I think he was just an OK president.

Clearly you don't know what a racist is , so let me help you.


In order to be classified as racist you MUST be or do the following:

1. Only Caucasian can be racist.

2. Verbally disagree with an African American or not support them can only mean you are racist.

3. Any involvement between a white person and a black person that leads to a negative consequence to the black person can only be a racial issue.

4. Not belonging too nor following the morally superior Democrats ways and laws can only mean that you are a Nazi homophobic racist


Hence Obama cant be racist according to the universal law that only WHITE people are racist. Despite being half white he still cant be racist as he has the right to choose and pick when to throw the racist card.

Nothing more than fake manufactured outrage by the left. They are desperate.... They have no plans to sell and must rely on lying.
