to protect the religious freedoms of Americans
Like so many other far right Republicans De Santis is pandering to his true-believing base base, Evangelicals, while ignoring the reality that he could offend, the 'others' who do not share the same beliefs as far right Evangelicals, but the R"s do not care if they offend 'others'. The R's want to further fracture the country, using the time proven tactic of divide and conquer done by authoritarian regimes throughout history.
Republicans have long cared primarily about maintaining the wealth of the already wealthy. Little about anyone else. The R's say things like if you do not like the politics of Florida, move to another state. The next state could well be one the R's muck up even worse. The Republican stench is present throughout the county, the R's are a minority attempting to impose their wack beliefs on the majority.. That they have heavily armed thug militias backing them up is worrying.

U.S. intel report warns of more violence by QAnon followers
Knowing the far right includes many individuals who are far beyond wack, and heavily armed. I believe the intel reports, but accept the 72 or so million Trump backers (i.e. a minority of Americans) will disbelieve anything coming from the 'west' and that the far right extremists will wait to read what the Kremlin and Steve Bannon and his Chinese billionaire backer report instead. The far right have shown they are gullible, and will believe any big lie coming from their messiah 45 and his equally wack media,,they'll even believe people like Gen Flynn who suggests a military takeover of the US ala Myanmar.
The US far right and their fellow white nationalists are heavily armed ,violent and a danger to the majority of Americans which includes people of all races and religions.
Unlike Trump's base the majority of Americans prefer democracy, even one as shattered as America's, over Russian or Chinese style authoritarianism.

Have they used up their aliens firing laser beams arguments, and their alien reptiles one. QAnon shaman is a good symbol for their collective wackiness. But so is Ivy League elitist Cosplay Ted Cruz, Marjorie Taylor Greene. Tucker, Hannity and other Murdoch puppets.

It’s so nice to to have to see that repugnant hand shake bullying anymore.
Recall 45 pushing Montengro’s leader at a NATO photoshoot. And I recall some 45' supporters cheered on their Trump for doing so..

That, my friends, is the Barr AG of the United States
Barr and The Federalist Society are, swamp people., as Establishment as it gets. That there are still some claiming Trump was and remains ant-establishment is not surprising.
Tru ebelieving cult members have never known for their objectivity. For example See what % of Trump supporters still believe his big lies. While also believing things like studying science causes mass shootings, and that alien reptiles are running pedophile rings.
No wonder televangelists are some of the richest people in the US. Suckers are born quite frequently in the US
televangelists and 45 Republicans prey on the same sucker base.

A properly functioning Justice system is fundamental to the US republic and the democratic principles, it is built on
it is not surprising 45 and his fellow anti-democracy faction tried to undermine the Justice Department.
45's followers who favor further weakening US systems, have done more damage to the US than any foreign state has in modern history. No surprise the 45 factions get support from authoritarian regimes around the globe. And the 45s cheer on their support for authoritarian regimes and believe reports from those authoritarian states, while disbelieving those from the US and other 'western' states.
And the 45 crowd try to claim they are patriots, while carrying Confederate and Nazi banners and attacking police with their banner poles. And the 45s say it was OK to attack the police that way because they did not use guns

Here is what can happen when sports stars are required to speak to the media.
Marshwn Lynch has his own brand of clothing, his company's profits increased after his 'interviews' as did requests for him to make guest appearances.
Here is another example of a sports personality dealing with the media.
Popovich is very popular except with 45's white nationalists and other right wingers.

t is refreshing to have a Pres with dogs and a cat
Unfortunately Rupert Murdoch's Tucker, Hannity etal, have used Biden's dogs in Murdoch's never ending assaults on Biden. and anyone else who is not far right and a follower of 45.
Murdoch knows, his audiences understand stories about dogs, Murdoch knows that his cable news entertainment shows would lose viewers if they presented stories with anything more complex than dog bites security officer. Murdoch and the others in far right media have dumbed down reporting to appeal to their poorly educated base, Murdoch like his boy Trump knows how successful televangelists have been at pushing big lies on the poorly educated and use the same tactics.
Roughly 72 million American voters fall into the easily manipulated audience. Murdoch/Trump etal, continue to get rich off the far right base that is so easily duped.

Nice to hear that the current White House is not continuing 45's assaults on a free, for-profit press. But then Biden and team seem committed to the democratic principles the republic is built on, not undermining them like 45 did in his and his admin's quest to make the US more like Russia or China.
I have not heard 'fake news' being used by this WH. I have only read or heard 'fake news' used by far right media (arguably the biggest creators of fake news on the planet and by 45 followers, they use it pretty consistently whenever an article with opinions different from theirs is published.
But rhen the 45 crowd have long attacked democracy and favored authoritarianism instead, especially authoritarianism of the Russian variety. See "Muh Russia' posters

Most Parts of the Americas are well aware of the Banana Wars when US troops invaded their countries. Troops Sent by the US government To defend rich US corporations.
The US Americans that profited from the Banana Wars should pay reparations. TheAmerican countries that suffered because of the US Banana Wars, had suffered earlier after Spain had invaded them. Those countries had two of the worst empires in history, Spain and the USA invade them rob them of their resources, and kill off their leaders. That is the story of colonialism around the globe. And still people today cheer on authoritarian regimes expanding their global reach. （See Belt and Road, Eurasian Economic Union、Turkey, the USA for current examples.)
Empires Leave sovereign states alone. If an empire invades a sovereign state it should be held responsible for the next hundred or so years for all damages caused, including taking in peoples victimized and made homeless because of the invasion

45 is the boss of the whiney caste, crying victim constantly. His cries are achoed by his global far right media bckers and his followers in general.
Millions of Mini-trumps lamenting their existence, and blaming 'others' for their shortcomings, Thinking if they keep contributing to thie Trump's coffers, they will be protected. Trump continues to model his appeal along the same lines of televangelists. Same sucker base in both the Trump crowd and thos of the religious extremists, and then the Trump followers complain about Islamic extremists, unable to see how much they have in common with each other

"principled" loser. dont need any more of those, the Republican party is full of them.
Would an example of Republican principles, be revenge porn is 1st Amendment protected, and that it is OK to use bear spray against a police officer because it was not a bullet.
Whens 45 joined the Republican Party principles became a yesterday notion. Along with 'family values' and 'law and order'

but people hate him for being right
That is a perspective.
I do not like 45 because of the damage he has done to the democratic principles the republic is. built on. And also because of the way he has continued to further splinter the country along race, religion and class lines. And because he is one of the most dishonest politicians the country has ever seen. And he has never cared about the country, only about his bank accounts. And the bank accounts of his family. Trump has been right, about as far right as anything the planet has seen since the 1930s. And almost as far right as Russia today

The US far right あんdてぃえrmediahave long exploited the 間やcomfortably dumb Americans, getting many among that group to actually believe shape shifting alien reptiles are running pedophile rings, and also believing alien space craft shot lasers to start forest fires. And far right pols have made dumb statements, believed by their followers claiming injecting a disinfectant will chase Covid away.And that a hurricane can be stopped by exploding a nuclear weapon, and forest fires can be prevented by sweeping the forest floor. And that studying science contributes to mass shootings. Lots of Nobel scientists from the US, but lots of terminally thick, too

The above tickets would put the final nails into what is ledt of the US republic. Both would be the dream tickets of the globe's anti-democracy supportres.
Stalin has gone down in history as the butcher of the revolution, Trump will likewise be known as the butcher of the republic for all the damage he and his supporters have done to the US and its sytems. Trump and ilk must make Xi, Putin, Erdogan. MbS and MbZ, happy, knowing Trump will go down in history as a 'leader' who has done more damage to democracy than they have.

It will be the end of the GOP if Mr. Trump runs again
The GOP will continue its race-based fear spreading, in the Party's ongoing efforts to push white nationalism, there are lots of Americans who are so afraid of others (see Tucker Carlson / Hannity fan bases) the GOP know they have a solid base. Plus read this forum to note how much support the GOP has with White Americans and others in global alt right movements.
