When you’re a real Floridian–not someone who came here from someplace else–and see something like the Charlottesville riots, you naturally think, “OK, where’s the Florida connection?”. Because you just know that’s the kind of insanity that draws faux Floridians like a magnet.
I think because of our climate, every whackjob who would normally wind
up living under a bridge or overpass, comes to Florida. Because in Florida
people who live under bridges and overpasses don’t have to worry about
freezing to death. That’s why we get all these goofballs who’ve made our
state’s reputation a punchline.
Of course it wasn’t long before we learned what the Florida link was. And
it is oh-so-quintessentially Florida.
We discover from newspaper articles that, according to famed racist Richard
Spencer, it is none other than a goat blood drinking pagan Orlando former attorney, and current Florida GOP Senate candidate who penned the first draft of the altRightk nazis’ and KKK’s road map for mayhem, the manifesto “The Charlottesville Statement”. His name is Augustus Invictus. Well, his real name is actually something Gillespie but, apparently that wasn’t dramatic enough for a goat blood drinking pagan with political aspirations.
A snappy headline and lead paragraph from the Orlando Sentinel captures the
“Goat blood-drinking Charlottesville speaker from Orlando announces GOP
run for Senate”
…Augustus Invictus, the former Orlando attorney listed as a
speaker at the Aug. 12 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville,
Va., has announced he is running again for U.S. Senate in
Florida, this time as a Republican. …
Yes, this is his second run for a senate nomination. That Orlando Sentinel article has a link to another intriguing item in the Tampa Bay Times.
“White nationalists find hero in Augustus Invictus, killer of goats”
The aforementioned goat blood drinking GOP candidate/Charlottesville
speaker ran against Marco Rubio in 2016 and only garnered 1063 votes. But he lost by only about 50 votes in the Libertarian Party primary that time. (Yes there are, in fact, more than 1,000 voters who cast ballots for a goat blood drinking pagan in my poor, poor pitiful home state.)
I think his new party, the GOP, is a much better fit.
The Miami Herald weighed in on Mr. Invictus as well.
“Goat-blood-drinking ex-Florida senate candidate headlined Charlottesville
Does the altRight know who this guy is? Uhhh, aren’t most of them
Christians? (Yeah, we all know what a violent hate-monger Jesus was, right? No, that would be altRight.)
Why is it none of this surprising? Appalling, yes, surprising, no.
And, of course, like most of the undesirables taking up space here in
Florida, the goat blood drinking GOP candidate is not from Florida. He’s
from Ohio, a state in which the KKK has deep roots.
Ohio, would you please send someone to fetch your native son back home?
