Casey DeSantis rolls out ‘Mamas for DeSantis’ hype video

Casey mamas
'He'll do for America what he did for us in Florida.'

Florida’s First Lady is kicking off the presidential campaign’s iteration of “Mamas for DeSantis” with a new video highlighting the Governor’s stances against drag queens, masks and Anthony Fauci.

“Winning the fight in Florida is just the beginning. We must protect parents’ rights and the innocence of our children. We must restore sanity in our society. We need every mama and every grandmama in every corner of the country to stand up and fight back by electing Ron DeSantis President of the United States,” asserted Casey DeSantis in a video she tweeted out Thursday.

The video, which runs slightly more than two minutes, juxtaposes stern narration against a visual backdrop of a parade of horribles for DeSantis and his supporters.

From file footage of a police officer arresting a mother somewhere for violating pandemic-era lockdowns to toddlers crying due to forced masking, and from visual reminders of figures ranging from the champion transgender athlete Lia Thomas to President Joe Biden, the video contends that said mamas have “witnessed a lot” and have “put up with enough,” “forced into science and compliance, told we must trust the science.”

“When you come after our kids, we fight back. There’s nothing we won’t do to protect our children. They’re not yours,” the voiceover contends, juxtaposing Biden against “fighter” Ron DeSantis.

“He’ll do for America what he did for us in Florida,” the narration contends, fighting DEI, protecting “girls’ sports” and “freedom.”

The video’s roll out is aptly timed. Mrs. DeSantis is in Iowa Thursday, where she will appear with Gov. Kim Reynolds to launch a “Mamas for DeSantis” group in the city of Johnston.

“As the mom and dad of young children, Gov. DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis know that when parents are engaged, America prospers,” reads an event invitation that has been reported by multiple outlets.

    Casey DeSantis rolls out another bit of far right propaganda. Digging their graves…and they care not.

      This is a marathon, so I would be concerned for Casey’s health running a marathon.

      While she is thin, she does not look like she has a healthy kind of fitness. She looks to be the “closet full of hidden zip-locks of her own vomit” kind of thin.

      If Casey runs for the marathon finish line, she probably gonna black out around 11k and collapse in a pile on the hot asphalt.

      Please be careful Casey. As hideous as you and Rhonda might be, I don’t wish death upon anyone. Everyone dies, so that would be a total waste of a wish.

    Mama doesn’t have control over their reproductive rights and choice. Mama give up their rights to the MAN.

    It was Sarah Palin who coined the term “mama grizzly’s” and Casey is un-original. It worked for Sarah for about one minute.

    “Parental rights” is a phony issue. No one is coming after anyone’s kids. Casey DeSantis is using the Joseph Goebbels playbook. Demonizing the LGBTQ community seems to be a crowd-pleaser in some quarters. Sadly, some people are buying into it.

      “Demonizing the LGBTQ community seems to be a crowd-pleaser in some quarters. Sadly, some people are buying into it.”
      ==========

      “The DeSantis campaign slouches toward sewage. ” — Joe Klein

      “He [DeSSantis] embraces his meanness. He luxuriates in his darkness. Let other politicians peddle the pablum of inspiration. He prefers to ooze the toxin of contempt” — NYT

      We of course know it as the lower orders of redneckism, the dregs.
      (Not the good-ol-boy sort.)

      These Anti-others type of people like Rhonda be demonizing their own children and/or grandchildren and in some cases even demonizing their own closeted selves due to Catholic shame, Baptist shame, or whatever brand of shame they subscribe themselves and their children to. Try accepting people for who they are. Drag queens don’t want to convert you. It’s Christians that are always trying to convert nons into their group. Drag queens don’t proselytize. If a drag queen gives out food and the soup kitchen, they don’t demand their customers wear a tiara. DQ’s are not like Christians that force the people at the soup kitchen to pray to Jesus and listen to a bunch Bible stories while they eat. Only religious types want your children. DQs don’t want your children anywhere around them. Nowhere! Nada! DQs are forced to go read books to kids so the kids cant see the DQs are not the devil, they’re just folks in costumes having fun and reading books to kids, not the devil like mom and dad said. If you don’t want drag queens reading books to kids, stop telling your kids drag queens are the devil!

    Him doing for the United States what he did for Florida is far from a selling point. Anyone that lived here before his Governorship knows that.

    At least Casey’s team knows to leaves words on the screen long enough to be read, unlike Rhonda’s gay video team that flashes us with words intended to be scary but the only scary part is the bad decisions in leaving the words on screen for a split second when they’re 2 or 3 sentences long AND moving around on screen. Casey’s amateur hour isn’t as bad as Rhonda’s amateur hour but they both still just silly and don’t motivate voters to do anything but hit mute and/or “close tab”

    Horrible video. So much much vague anger, so much white hate. So much crap using kids as pawns

    Picking fights is not leading. We tried the dark vision of America and it sucks. No thanks, Ron. You’ve got nothing positive to offer – fear is all you e got.

    I’ve figured out why Ron and Casey’s videos are so terrible. They are looking at their campaign as if it were an episode of The Apprentice.

    Ron just wants to be VP, so yeah, that fits. The Apprentice, Florida edition.

    Apprentice level quality productions from Ron and Casey, they believe, will get Ron into the VP slot on the Trump ticket. It might even work.
