Gaetz and Greene Rile Up the MAGA Faithful With Talk of Guns and Election Lies at Florida Rally

Source: Daily Beast

THE VILLAGES— Supporters of Reps. Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene descended on the Brownwood Hotel and Spa in The Villages, Florida, on Friday night to hear two of the most controversial Republican members of Congress speak—and to presumably find some solace in the fact that even though Donald Trump is out of the White House, his two most zealous disciples are still determined to spread the MAGA gospel.

Ahead of the event, some supporters were turned away after the venue reached capacity. Outside, near a side entrance to the hotel, a group of six people decked out in Make America Great Again regalia chanted “USA! USA!” and “All Lives Matter! All Lives Matter!” They followed up by shouting, “Stop the steal! Stop the steal!”

Inside, a trio of police officers turned away latecomers trying to enter a ballroom where a standing-room-only crowd of about 1,000 people arrived almost an hour earlier to hear Gaetz and Greene speak.

Nancy Formisano, a snow-haired 73-year-old wearing a tag that read “The Villages for Trump VIP member,” held a red placard with Greene’s name near the rear of the ballroom. “It only holds 400 people,” the maskless Trumper told The Daily Beast. “But they crammed in as many as they could. I’m just so glad so many people showed up.”

10. Good on 1,000 in a 400 venue. They'll be filling up the graveyard right next door STAT!

And yes there is a graveyard right nearby. Sounds cruel but hey, they deserve to die....of gross stupidity. The country will be better off.

7. Villages was vaccinating 60+ early, thanks to DeSantis.

If any of those retirees is not vaccinated, it's by their own choice.

I'd bet most of the residents of the Villages has been vaccinated. Even the ones who loudly talk anti-vax.

11. You'd be dead wrong pal! I do know that most R's at the Villages did not get vacc'ed.

Why? Both De Satan and Trump said not to do so.

Gaetz and Greene- two absolutely worthless pieces of shit.

12. The country cannot surrender to thugs and thuggery

but surely it's been done in other ways throughout history. Those who immigrated to the US in the 1800s - German, Irish, European, Russian, the Quebec Diaspora - were fleeing oppression of various kinds.

18. I live on the west coast of FL, not far enough away from that swamp. But yeah, FL feels like a

backwater with infrastructure. The secret to surviving FL is to be in it and not of it.

23. It seems like Gaetz must be skating through Legal Woes?

Seems like he's going to be able to freely grift from Trump supporters in order to pay for his legal expenses, protecting him from facing justice, just like any other wealthy fraudster criminal.

I just love our so called "justice system". Anybody else would be detained while awaiting trial.

Oh. Wait. he hasn't even been arrested yet, you say?

Well, just put a check mark on the "anyone else would have been arrested and detained" list of class and white privilege.
