Meanwhile, DeSantis-backed, self-reported felon School Board Member Rick Nolte continues to enjoy complete immunity and silence from the Polk sheriff and state attorney.
I have called Canady’s office numerous times for a plethora of reasons and never get a response. The latest being her position on allowing nazis to demonstrate in downtown Lakeland. While we all have the right to protest, we all know the history behind this hate group and the what they embody as a “group”— Canady refuses to publicly ridicule such demonstrations of hate and tell her constituents that she doesn’t support this extremist organization. Canady and Judd’s silence on this event further the belief they are just as complicit in proliferating the culture wars. Also, a megaphone was used during that demonstration and the (user) was not arrested for that … while not long ago a teenager was arrested during a reproduction rights protest for using a megaphone.
Nobody proves the pen's might more than you my friend! I pray journalists are kept safe in this ever widening retribution machine that is comprised of Tallywhackers... but if Micky and Minnie may have to toe the line, can the 4th estate still be held above the fray?
OK, Billy. I am prochoice and will be working to get the prochoice amendment on the ballot. I agree that arresting someone for throwing a pair of underpants is absurd, BUT using a pair of underpants as a "weapon" is moronic and holds the prochoice movement up to ridicule. It is really hard to have any respect or sympathy for such a silly, silly woman! Where is her brain?
Well, in this case she may have alienated more people than she energized. We need to get enough signatures to get the amendment on the ballot and I don't think this sort of behavior encourages allies. What in the world did she think was the upside to her prank? All she did was give Grady the opportunity to hitch up his britches and show his dictator side. The publicity is not good for either of them.
