Larry Elder, the right wing talk show host, and an African American, seems likely to be the major threat to the tenure of California Governor Gavin Newsom in the upcoming Gubernatorial Recall election on Tuesday, September 14.
What is his record of beliefs and statements?
He is an ardent supporter of Donald Trump, regularly praising him on Twitter.
Elder has argued Trump is not responsible for the January 6, 2021 Insurrection.
In a 2000 book, he called for:
abolishing the Internal Revenue Service
creating a national sales tax
reduce government by 80 percent
end welfare and entitlements
abolish the minimum wage
eliminate corporate taxes
Also, he has condemned Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty”; thinks the ideal minimum wage is ZERO; has condemned labor unions, and said many teachers are incompetent and should be fired; and prefers charter and private schools to public schools.
Elder also is anti abortion; anti gay; thinks California is “soft on crime”; and is a denier of climate change and the dangers of second hand tobacco smoking.
He is also against mandates on COVID 19 and masks; and sees no problem with mass rallies held by Donald Trump. Additionally, he has made highly controversial remarks on women, very misogynistic in nature.
So Elder would be a nightmare for California, and could gain the power to select the replacement for Dianne Feinstein, who might leave soon due to dementia, and that would change the political balance in the US Senate!
The Republican Party has long advertised itself as the party against strong central government.
But now, the governors of Florida, Texas, Iowa, South Dakota and others have set themselves up as dictators of state government, threatening local county governments and school boards who want to promote vaccinations and masking as ways to deal with the COVID 19 Pandemic.
By refusing to promote public safety and health, Ron DeSantis, Greg Abbott, Kim Reynolds, Kristi Noem, and other reckless Republican governors are promoting a death cult, and will cause mass loss of life, more for young people, who cannot yet be vaccinated.
So the party, supposedly, of pro Life, is now just the opposite.
Something must be done to take away the dictatorial power of these dangerous state governors, who are total hypocrites on government authority!
America is faced with a group of Republican Governors, most notably Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas, but also others, who are conducting themselves as Fascist dictators, showing total recklessness in the midst of the COVID 19 Pandemic!
These two monstrous, arrogant leaders are both aiming for the possibility of being the Republican Presidential nominee in 2024, and going out of their way to play up to Donald Trump, with the hope that he will not run, or be able to run for President, and will endorse one or the other as the next candidate of a party now seen as a cult, not the traditional conservative party of the past.
The danger is that the COVID 19 Pandemic will lead to the hospitalization and death of many more Floridians and Texans, with the refusal of both governors, and others, to respect the Centers for Disease Control, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and federal guidelines of the Biden Administration, on vaccination and masking.
