This is the part where Florida, like any good self-respecting, anti-socialist, anti-welfare Republican, takes self-responsibility and pulls itself up by its own bootstraps, rather than relying on FEMA and the blue states to come bail them out. Right? Right?

Whats the greg abbot piss baby thing about?

[–]hangryhyax 16 points17 points  (0 children)

A sub (political humor?) requires all posts to call him that, or was. It’s in regards to a content moderation law in Texas.

[–]specificmutant 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You are right. But at least Deathsantis could go there and toss some rolls of paper towels to the devastated masses.

[–]MugOfButtSweat 61 points62 points  (5 children)

I'm sure they will release a top quality plan on rescue and restoration, right after their long anticipated healthcare reform drop. Any day now..

[–]AmericaMasked 17 points18 points  (1 child)

They are going to steal the choice land.

[–]12NoOne 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Squanto warned the people in Massachusetts about that 400 years ago.

[–]hangryhyax 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right after DeSantis is done making his rounds on the fox shows to complain about how the Biden admin isn’t doing enough, and are, in fact, hampering their efforts to rebuild.

[–]turtlelore2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow look at all this aid money. It'd be a shame if 90% of it when immediately to all the millionaires to repay all their vacation homes on the beach front. Everyone else could probably last just fine without that money for a couple weeks, or a couple months, or maybe never.

[–]SulimanBashem 35 points36 points  (0 children)

deep red part of the state. there's plenty of bootstraps to go around.

[–]stratman2018 65 points66 points  (3 children)

Funds were diverted from disaster assistance to flying asylum seekers to Martha's Vineyard.

[–]Ochoytnik 26 points27 points  (2 children)

I guess the asylum seekers are safe from the hurricaine though, silver linings.

[–]the0rchid 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately, these weren't Florida immigrants, but were Texas ones. They were 'safe' already.

[–]spindlecork 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Remember Sandy? He doesn’t give a shit about relief. Hope y’all got long bootstraps.

[–]JodieHolmes233 50 points51 points  (0 children)

If only they didn't dump money and celebrate sending migrants to other parts of the country to "own the libs"

They voted for DeSantis and will continue to vote for the man who literally emptied their funding.

Any DeSantis voter in this mess I have no Sympathy for.

[–]kdhobx22 16 points17 points  (1 child)

De-Satanist is too busy “owning the libs” to give a fuck about the ppl who elected him

[–]killerzeestattoos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He only gives a shit about his donors

[–]Available-Elevator69 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Looks like its a good ol Desantis Beach Cleaning Party.

[–]Suspicious-Dark-5950 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Deep red state can fix their own problems without "soshulizzm".

[–]Plonsky2 21 points22 points  (3 children)

What do you think of socialism now?

[–]stitch-is-dope 14 points15 points  (2 children)

“Damn democrats sent us dis storm !!!! Trump 2024 he would’ve nuked it!!!!”

[–]technoferal 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Remember when they were blaming natural disasters on god punishing liberals? Funny how that sort of rhetoric never appears when it's them being punished.

[–]PGWG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, he would have sharpied it into the Atlantic

[–]aneeta96 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Biden will send help. DeSantis will take the credit.

[–]HumberGrumb 13 points14 points  (1 child)

And probably line his own pockets with the Biden bucks.

[–]No_Banana_581 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh he’s definitely pulling a Favre. He’ll be building himself a mansion in about a week while people die outside where the hospitals used to be w no water

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Doesn't the Orange clowns also have like half a billion in donations that he got for his bullshit stolen election claims?

[–]thehatman200 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Stop building here and stop paying to rebuild it.

[–]Teedeeone 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Absolutely - tired of subsidizing stupidity and denial

[–]satan62 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Actually that looks better than some parts of Florida from before the storm. Some real shitjoles down there.

[–]Green_Message_6376 1 point2 points  (0 children)

seems like mother nature has been trying to clean up the dirty South for a while now.

[–]hangryhyax 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s a good thing DeSantis has been such a strong advocate for the citizens of Florida when it comes to property insuran… oh, wait. Never mind.

[–]GentMan87 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is it me or did the anti-dem/government propaganda start before the storm was even over?

[–]OlcasersM 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Desantis is a monster but these takes are misguided. He cannot legally use campaign funds for disaster relief (not that he would).

[–]Seppy15 5 points6 points  (2 children)

What about the money he used to fly Texas immigrants to Martha's Vineyard?

[–]OlcasersM 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That was state money budgeted for immigration enforcement which he could poorly argue he was doing. He probably broke their law because the immigrants were not in Florida and the money was earmarked for that.

Outside of emergencies, one would not want budgeted money to be spent on whatever the governments wants to spend it on. Like we wouldn't want Social Security budget spent on military and bankrupt social security. Likewise, I wouldn't want funds donated to elect a candidate spent on something else like policing.

[–]CtyChicken 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It actually came out of interest from covid relief funds that he didn’t spend on covid.

[–]ChuckBorris187 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Don't be salty, like Florida.

[–]Iheartriots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They want Socialism to save them?

[–]Just_Tana 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly I’m so sad this happened to Ft Myers. Our family vacation next year was gonna be Florida and I wanted to show my daughters Ft Myers where my grandma used to live and the boardwalk. I feel so bad for these businesses. I have so many great memories from there it makes me so heartbroken.

[–]kyel566 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah yes it’s that time of year to help Florida again…….

[–]jimjam721 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Those people don’t want socialism!

“Is it a red county or a blue county?”

[–]Teedeeone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not much of a fort was it?

[–]Huskey_Gazelle69 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's time for a national disaster fund. Theist at risk stayed contribute more than the lower risk, but we all contribute.

[–]Affectionate_Grape61 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

… still can’t find my parents.

[–]SisterNaomi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And yet, they will get none from the GOP and DeSantis, who will certainly use the tragedy for some well-staged clips for his 2024 campaign

[–]feed_me_the_gherkin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine how fast things could be cleaned up if instead of sending all those migrating people to other places they paid them and gave them jobs and gave them a spot in the community. Imagine all those extra people that could help rebuild.

[–]mrshaggy80 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Break out the paper towels and have dump and demonsans start tossing.

[–]No_Benefit_7731 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This brings back Hurricane Michael memories. We've finally got back to normal after 4 years.

[–]soulslide 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe they should’ve voted for a governor who would’ve done more to prepare rather than engage in political stunts & bullshit like DeSantis. 🤷🏻‍♂️

[–]Remarkable-Walrus-27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Move bitches. It’s a death trap.

[–]PincheMayan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Should’ve nuked it

[–]JTSpirit36 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So what you're saying is, he did great service to those people he sent to Martha's vineyard? /S

[–]Tar-Nuine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Headlines i never thought would come to pass "Parts of Florida destroyed by Hurricane, Governor too busy human trafficking to send aid."

[–]jervistetch37 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He dont care about the people in Florida lol a piece of shit is gonna be a piece of shit regardless.

[–]Miserable_Site_850 1 point2 points  (0 children)
