Leftists are big mad over the 2020 presidential election …
Why? Because the residents of Florida, including the countless Cuban refugees who fled socialist-styled oppression to seek sanctuary here, dared to commit the unforgivable sin of voting against policies that would have advantaged others at their expense.
Leftists like anti-Trump zealot John Leguizamo, a Colombian immigrant who angrily tweeted Wednesday that “Florida is dead to me” and that he doesn’t care anymore if the state’s 21+ million “lemmings drive their golf carts into the ocean!”
Florida is dead to me! Let the lemmings drive their golf carts into the ocean!
— John Leguizamo (@JohnLeguizamo) November 4, 2020
His anger was over Florida going red in the 2020 race.
Other high-profile leftists have been just as venomous in their rage over Florida citizens choosing to prioritize their own interests over those of, say, elitist Hollywood celebrities like Leguizamo who’re worth millions upon millions upon millions of dollars.

Such “nice” and “tolerant” people …
As to the claim that “nobody” likes Florida, as of Thursday results from the still-ongoing 2020 election showed that over 68.5 million Americans and counting had voted for President Donald Trump, and 5.6 million had come from Florida.
This means that outside of Florida, there are at least 62.9 million Americans who agree with the “lemmings” in the Sunshine State who also voted for Trump.
And regarding those so-called “lemmings,” many of them are of Hispanic origin just like Leguizamo, and that makes leftists like him very angry.
The very night of the election, The New York Times’ writer Ida Bae Wells, the creator of the discredited 1619 Project, argued that the term Latinos shouldn’t exist anymore because Hispanics who support conservative policies and principles are white.
One day after this election is over I am going to write a piece about how Latino is a contrived ethnic category that artificially lumps white Cubans with Black Puerto Ricans and Indigenous Guatemalans and helps explains why Latinos support Trump at the second highest rate.

People are consistently surprised by how Latinos trail only white voters in their support for Trump, but this is simply an unsophisticated understanding of the Latino as a category created by white po. Do white Cubans as a group identify naturally identify w Mexicans in camps?

Such a large number of Latinos in Florida voted for Trump because both Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris have repeatedly flirted with socialist ideas and principles.
Just this week the VP nominee posted an advertisement whose messaging was practically “right out of the Cuban communist manifesto.”

In the ad, Harris contrasted equal treatment — which involves everybody receiving fair and equal treatment — with equitable treatment, which involves resources being redistributed so that everybody “start[s] in the same place.”
“There’s a big difference between equality and equity. Equality suggests, ‘Oh, everyone should get the same amount.’ The problem with that, not everybody’s starting in the same place,” she said in the disturbing 50-second advertisement.
Writing for Reason magazine, Robby Soave explained why what she’d said was extremely problematic.
“A government should be obligated to treat all citizens equally, giving them the same access to civil rights and liberties like voting, marriage, religious freedom, and gun ownership. The government cannot deny rights to certain people because they are black, female, Muslim, etc.—this would be unequal treatment,” he wrote.
“A mandate to foster equity, though, would give the government power to violate these rights in order to achieve identical social results for all people. In accordance with this thinking, the authorities might be justified in giving some people more rights than others. Indeed, this would arguably be strictly necessary, in order to create a society where everyone ends up in the exact same situation.”
In other words, to foster equity, you must implement an authoritarian Communist government, period, because there’s no other way to redistribute resources and rights.
And so naturally, Latinos in Florida — particularly those who fled oppression in Cuba or are the children of Cuban refugees — weren’t too thrilled at this prospect. Perhaps Florida’s white, black and Asian Trump supporters weren’t either.
But does Leguizamo have any interest in learning about their reasons for voting for the president? It doesn’t seem like it. It appears he’d rather just spew vitriol instead.
Speaking of which:
