Episode 727 – He’s In!

DeSantis is finally going to go all in, running for President. The news media is wigging out over how he’s going to do it.

Target is virtue signaling and it’s not working out. Worse yet, the are allying with some very iffy personalities.

And an alligator is Florida proves that Charles Darwin was right.


He’s In

According to the Daily Wire:

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is officially entering the 2024 presidential race this week during a special event with Twitter owner Elon Musk.

The conversation between DeSantis and Musk will take place on Twitter at 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday, according to multiple reports. The conversation will be moderated by Republican donor David Sacks, who is supporter of DeSantis and a close ally of Musk.

The Daily Wire can confirm that the reports are accurate.

Along with the announcement, a video was released. Here it is:

With DeSantis actually declaring, we can expect to see the gloves drop.



We Are Winning

According to Fox News:

Some southern Target stores were forced by the corporation to move LGBTQ Pride merchandise away from the front of their locations after customer “outrage” to avoid a “Bud Light situation.”

Many Target locations across the country feature massive June Pride month displays on an annual basis, with items this year ranging from “tuck friendly” bathing suits for transgender people to mugs that say “gender fluid.” But the retail juggernaut has been criticized by some conservatives for the displays, with children’s items particularly irking many customers. 

A Target insider told Fox News Digital that many locations, mostly in rural areas of the South, have relocated Pride sections to avoid the kind of backlash Bud Light has received in recent weeks after using a transgender influencer in a promotional campaign. 

It was worse than the article starts off. It continues:

A Target insider said there were “emergency” calls on Friday and that some managers and district senior directors were told to tamp down the Pride sections immediately.

“We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that’s a third the size. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage,” the Target insider said.

“We call our customers ‘guests,’ there is outrage on their part. This year, it is just exponentially more than any other year,” the Target insider continued. “I think given the current situation with Bud Light, the company is terrified of a Bud Light situation.”

This is called winning.

But it gets worse for Target. According to Fox News:

Target has found itself in hot water again over its gay pride collection, this time because of its partnership with a controversial designer.

The major retailer partnered with U.K.-based brand Abprallen to sell merchandise with pro-LGBTQ messages to celebrate Pride month. A search on Target’s website finds some of the items. 

While the company was already under a microscope over its “tuck-friendly” swimsuits, some social media users were angered to discover that Abprallen’s designer Eric Carnell is also an outspoken Satanist whose brand features occult imagery and messages like “Satan respects pronouns” on brand apparel.

I love this.



Darwin Wins

This story is just funny and I love the way the Blaze tells it.

According to the Blaze:

A man in Florida fell into a pond behind a bar and later awakened to find out that his arm had been bitten off by an alligator.

23-year-old Jordan Rivera told WBBH-TV that the bathrooms were full at the Banditos bar in Port Charlotte early Sunday morning, so he decided to go out back to relieve himself.

“I just saw a little lake and just went over there and just, you know, take a little pee, what not,” Rivera explained. “Something happened where I either tripped or the ground below me just went down.”

He said he went into the water, and the next thing he remembered is that he awoke in the hospital without his right arm.

“Confusion, I was like ‘Whoa,’ because I just woke up and I was just sitting here. And I looked over and I saw my arm the way it was and I was like, ‘Whoa,’” Rivera continued. “It kind of feels like my arm is just there but not there.”

Hmm, wonder why the ground suddenly fell from below his feet behind the bar? I love that the guy was wasted but that never comes up in the story.

There was a video and guess what? He looked wasted.

Later in the article, initial theories as to how he lost the arm were debunked.

Although his story has captivated many in Florida, some have spread rumors that Rivera was feeding the alligator when he lost his arm. He vehemently denies the rumor.

“That is completely not true,” Rivera added. “They don’t even serve food at that bar, so I couldn’t have even served the gator food.”

Florida officials said they captured the alligator and euthanized the animal, adding that it was measured at ten and a half feet long.

Darwin lost this one. This guy can still breed.
