Florida Dem’s Attempt at Owning Ron DeSantis Backfires

Rep. Anna V. Eskamani, a Democrat from Florida’s 47th District, took to Twitter on Friday to express her dissatisfaction with an upcoming event featuring the state’s popular Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, and political commentator and news talk show host Dave Rubin, a former hardline leftist who has recently seen the light.

The event, dubbed Dave Rubin In Conversation with Governor Ron DeSantis, will take place on Thursday in The Plaza, which Eskamani describes as literally in the heart of one of Orlando’s most LGBTQ+ friendly neighborhoods. She also expressed her displeasure with the fact that it was taking place during Pride Month, writing that Orlandoans deserved more than this culture war.

In a following tweet, Eskamani implied that Rubin was just as homophobic and anti-LGBTQ as DeSantis.

One of the major flaws in Eskamani’s diatribe is that Rubin is homosexual, which he didn’t hesitate to inform her in a response that included an invitation to the Thursday get-together.

A back-and-forth began, with Rubin inviting her to appear on his program and Eskamani performing some political grandstanding by claiming she’d only attend the DeSantis/Rubin debate if she could argue on stage. Rubin didn’t fall for it, instead informing her that her invitation to appear on his show was still valid despite catching her showing the sort of racism she would denounce if it came from a Republican.

The second major flaw in what she stated is her evident effort to portray DeSantis as a homophobe or bigot, which I’m sure stems from his signing the Parental Rights Bill into law in March. Parents who want age-appropriate education for their children in grades K-3 that does not involve woke training on sexual orientation and gender identity politics topics are not homophobic or prejudiced.
