Like most Broward Democrat events, their Saturday morning anti-gun rally in Sunrise featured more politicians and activists than average citizens. The partisan rhetoric was very heated at times, but a few brave elected Democrats did praise Florida Republicans for passing several measures after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas massacre. While the battle cry from most speakers focused on changes in Federal law, not a single Federal officeholder from Broward attended the rally.
Former Republican and NRA darling Charlie Crist also joined the politicians in Sunrise. The attendees included State Sen Shevrin Jones, State Sen Lauren Book, State Sen Rosalind Osgood, State Rep Christine Hunchofsky, State Rep Marie Woodson, State Rep Robin Bartleman, Broward County Commissioner Jared Moskowitz, Broward School Board Member Debra Hixon and Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Ben Sorensen.
Longtime Broward Democrat consultant and school board whisperer Barbara Miller thinks Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the “Parental Rights In Education” bill will turn Florida into an “anti-gay hellhole.” Democrats and their media accomplices have dubbed legislation the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. But Barbara Miller was silent when her husband mocked diversity in a transphobic screed on his Facebook page.
Taking a cue from Larry King’s USA Today column of the late 20th Century, James Fox Miller posts lots of stream of consciousness news and notes on his Facebookpage. Earlier this year, Mr. Miller lamented on how tough it is to get accept to a good college these days. Miller wrote:
“I embrace concept of diversity, but sometimes think that my grandchildren need to be black or brown transgender, bulemic Buddhists from Somalia to be able to be admitted to school that five years ago would have been a snap.”
Archie Bunker could not have said it better. But make no mistake, James Fox Miller is no knuckle-dragging conservative. When he’s not mocking eating disorders, Buddhists and LGBTQ kids from Africa, Miller posts vulgar attacks on former President Donald Trump and other Republicans.
While it may seem easy to dismiss the rants of another south Florida senior citizen, the Miller’s play a prominent role in Broward politics. Last month, the Millers hosted the Broward Teachers Union political director at their vacation home in Italy. Barbara Miller is the paid consultant for numerous politicians such as Florida State Representatives Robin Bartleman, Michael Gottlieb and Marie Woodson as well as Broward County Commissioner Beam Furr, Broward School Board Members and Broward judicial candidates.
Do they think white children are getting hurt by black and brown LGBTQ kids getting into college?
Broward Democrat politicians gathered at the Broward Supervisor of Elections (SOE) office on Saturday to protest new Florida voting laws. The rally was part of a national Democrat campaign to garner support for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s House Resolutions (HR 4 & HR 51) and Senator Chuck Schumer’s “For The People” agenda. The highly partisan campaign rally was hosted at the taxpayer-funded SOE office in Lauderhill.
REDBROWARD asked Supervisor of Elections Joe Scott if he invited any Republicans to the rally. “I didn’t invite anyone,” Scott said. “This isn’t my event.”
Yet, when he was introduced, Joe Scott said he was “so happy he was asked to host the event” at the SOE office. Who asked Joe Scott to host the event?
Scott accused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis of scheduling upcoming elections to hurt Democrats. After he spoke, Scott can be seen using SOE equipment to fix sound problems.
The good news: The Broward SOE office is now available to host partisan political events. The awning over the office’s front door provides the perfect shade for those hot and humid summer rallies!
Other speakers included Fl State Rep Bobby DuBose, Fl State Rep Robin Bartleman, Fl State Senator Shevrin Jones and Broward County Commissioner Beam Furr.
Democrat State Committeeman Ken Evans was in the crowd as was political consultant Barbara Miller.
Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness arrived after the rally ended. Better luck next time Dale!
