Who Is Andrew Gillum?

Article:



A few days ago, 39-year-old Andrew Gillum – the Tallahassee, Florida mayor who proudly embraces the socialist political and economic agenda of Bernie Sanders – won his party's gubernatorial primary race in that state. This sets the stage for November, when Gillum will face Republican Ron DeSantis in the election for governor. Gillum's campaign has been endorsed not only by Sanders, but also by Our Revolution, an activist organization that explicitly promotes the Vermont senator's agenda.

Gillum has a long history of political activism that stretches back to his school days. When he was enrolled at Florida A&M University, for instance, he was very active in the Student Government Association. In early 2000, Gillum helped organize a large “March on Tallahassee” to protest Governor Jeb Bush's 1999 executive order abolishing affirmative action in state university admissions and state contracting. To reward Gillum's activism vis-a-vis this and other matters, the Center for Policy Alternatives recognized him as the nation's top student leader in 2001.

In 2002, Gillum became the Florida Field Organizer with the People For the American Way Foundation (PFAWF), spearheading its “Arrive With 5” initiative – a pro-Democrat voter-mobilization campaign whereby young people pledged to bring five additional voters with them to the polls on Election Day.

On a variety of key political issues, Gillman:

  • strongly favors the expansion of Obamacare as a step toward a government-run, single-payer, “Medicare-for-all” healthcare system;
  • strongly favors government-enforced affirmative action policies designed to compensate nonwhites and women for the effects of past and present discrimination;
  • strongly favors a steeply progressive income-tax structure where high earners pay disproportionately high rates, and where corporate taxes are increased significantly;
  • strongly favors the implementation of a pathway-to-citizenship for illegal aliens;
  • strongly favors the enactment of carbon taxes, higher CAFE standards for automobiles, and federal funding for the research-and-development of wind and solar power technology;
  • strongly opposes Voter ID laws as racist schemes that are designed to suppress minority voting;
  • believes that the enactment of voucher programs through which low-income parents can take their children out of substandard public schools and send them instead to superior private schools, constitutes bad public policy;
  • believes that the availability of guns should be severely restricted, even for law-abiding citizens who have never been convicted of a crime, and that the 2nd Amendment does not guarantee Americans the right to possess a firearm;
  • supports a complete ban on so-called “assault weapons”;
  • believes that the federal government should inject large amounts of funding – in the form of cash as well as federal job-creation programs – to help the U.S. economy recover from downturns that it may experience;
  • believes that the nationalization of banks and corporations is more appropriate than government bailouts of those entities when they fail economically;
  • calls for a national $15-per-hour minimum wage requirement for all workers; and
  • advocates the repeal of Florida’s “stand-your-ground” gun laws which permit people to use deadly force if they feel that their lives are threatened by an aggressor or assailant.


Gillum also has released a video demanding that President Trump be impeached because he allegedly “obstructed justice” by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

As if that list isn’t horrible enough, the fact that there’s a large percentage (thankfully not yet a majority) of Floridians who’ll vote for this loser with his losing proposition, is the most horrifying realization.

I hope the Cubans in Florida remember that it was Obama and the democrats that ended the wet foot/dry foot policy after they failed to deliver the state to Hillary. Democrats don't give a flyin' F about Cubans in Florida. They just want their vote.

Gillum is the next version of Obama. The left has been waging war on the Constitution for 100 years, they never quit and have in fact ramped up their assault. We all need to be ready to rush into the breach and crush them.

For sure, although I don’t think they give a throbbing thrombosis about anyone but themselves.

Are you referring to the Cubans in Florida? I think this is a case where conservative and Cuban-American values align. We both abhor communism. Democrats equal communism.

Voting Republican is the best way to look out for themselves.

No no, I meant democrats. I know S Florida cubans pretty well, the old guard is 90%+ against Obama. The problem is the young ones, to some extent. What is it about Latinos, why do so many of them like socialism/communism?

I had a feeling I misunderstood you. Regarding the young ones, I think it's just a susceptibility to propaganda. Because they are generally low skill workers, leftist propaganda sounds like an easy increase in their standard of living. They are not concerned with big-picture consequences.

Who is Andrew Gillum? I don’t know, but he certainly ain’t John Galt.
