Honest to Dawg, that is straight-up fascism and a shake-down to boot, and it worked. I’m actually shocked that the Special Olympics caved to DeSantis rather than cancel the event. My faith in the Special Olympics is damaged, maybe beyond repair. Money before kids is not a good look for the Special Olympics. Seems rather exploitive to me.
If you ever wonder what American Fascism will look like, just keep an eye on Floriduh. Sun-baked idiot and notable fascist Ron DeSantis is more likely than not to be in the 2024 Goat Rodeo.
