Ron DeSantis Furious About "Chake Qay-Varra" (Che Guevara)

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this week establishing a “Victims of Communism Day.” A feature of right-wing reactionaries is to have some sort of boogeyman to fearmonger against and a staple throughout the years is that there are communists within American ranks that the people need to be warned about. This plays especially well in a place like Florida with a lot of exiles from Cuba and Venezuela. DeSantis said during a press event, “you can see at a college campus students flying the hammer and sickle from the Soviet Union flag. You will see students that will have t-shirts with Che Guevara on the t-shirts. You will see students that will idolize people like Mao Zedong. That to me speaks to a tremendous ignorance about what those individuals represented.” DeSantis takes advantage of every culture war battle he can get involved in and this week it just happens to be the right’s fight against communism.
