For awhile now I assumed that DeSantis' Culture Warrior persona was nothing but cynical politics. No one, so I thought, could be so vicious against whole sections of his own state's population and so willing to attack major employers except as a means to gain and hold unchecked power. But he isn't backing down even when his hate filled talk and cruel actions seem to be losing him political support. I wonder...is DeSantis a True Believer after all? Does he really have no notion of social justice, kindness and public service? Is he really THAT reptilian?
