The lobbying group that works to introduce anti-immigration ideology into state policy defines a white nationalist as "Caucasian who supports the rule of law & America First," and the group seems determined to insert that definition into Florida legislation.
H/t @StopSpreadSRQ
A Mar 2019 email from FLIMEN that included above definition was addressed to staff of RPOF chairman #JoeGruters, Sarasota who is one of the sponsors SB168: Federal Immigration Enforcement, referred to as the sanctuary-city ban, which DeSantis signed into law in June of that year.
July 2019, nine civil-rights groups, including Florida Immigrant Coalition and the Farmworker Association of Florida, joined the City of South Miami & sued Ron DeSantis & Attorney General Ashley Moody in Miami federal court in an effort to prevent the law from taking effect.
U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom in Miami struck down key portions of the law in a scathing 110-page ruling, saying SB:168 violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution, making clear that the legislation was rooted in prejudice.
The comms between FLIMEN & Gruters’ office are evidence of their shared discriminatory intent. Allowing anti-immigrant hate groups that overtly promote xenophobic, nationalist, racist ideologies to be intimately inv in a bill's process is a departure from procedural norms.
These instances demonstrate that Senator #JoeGruters & SB 168’s supporters were aware of FLIMEN & FAIR’s racist ideologies," she writes. "Nevertheless, there is no record evidence establishing any effort to renounce these discriminatory views." miaminewtimes.com/news/miami-jud…

🚨The Family Research Council (FRC) and it's activism arm FRCAction continues to facilitate harassment & attacks on public education. Here, FRCAction is providing a pre-written letter to send/bring to their School Boards. Image
The letter here allows the "activist parent" to fill in the blank for name & location.
The letter states "I suggest that membership groups like the School Boards Association are an unnecessary drain on resources..." Image
It lists a series of questions to ask such as: "Does this Board agree with NSBA that parental involvement and opposition to school board policies is "equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism?" Image

Watch how fast Phil Archer's office takes action.

That will explain a lot about Central Florida corruption.
His office ignored complaints regarding Jason Brodeur and Joel Greenberg until the pressure popped and FEDS wanted to come take a look.

They're adding bumper sticker sponsors.

👀 Is that the John Birch Society (JBS)?
Luis Miguel for US Senate
APU
Lexit
Republican Freedom Caucus
Florida Freedom Keepers

Anyway, Florida is a Rogue State. Guessing this "protest" won't be subject to the DeSantis laws...
Certainly looks to be the John Birch Society logo.

The John Birch Society Is Back | Bircher ideas, once on the fringe, are increasingly commonplace in today’s GOP and espoused by friends in high places. And the group is ready to make the most of it.
