Everything Is Racist When a Democrat Wants to Win an Election or Argument

Monkeyshines.

[T]his is apparently, according to the media, a nefarious dog whistle.

This requires us to ask a question. What was DeSantis' racist strategy? To use a word that, when used as a verb, as DeSantis did here, is defined by the dictionary as "to play or trifle idly; fool"? A word that is commonly used in a variety of political contexts (see, for example, Gillum himself using the term "monkey on the commission’s back" [link at source])?

Was DeSantis so clever about his wording that he knew that a common phrase, applied to a socialist candidate who happens to be black, would activate his evil white supremacist voters? If so, why wasn't he clever enough to realize that the world would come crashing down on him? After all, that was pretty predictable, wasn't it?
