If Democrat Florida governor candidate Charlie Crist thought no one would pay attention to him picking as his running mate Karla Mats-Hernandez (Karla Marx), who mourned the death of communist dictator Fidel Castro, boy was he wrong. Taking advantage of Crist’s bad judgment, of which he has a decades-long history, the DeSantis campaign has launched new campaign merchandise that features Crist’s Castro-admiring running mate (via Florida’s Voice):
The DeSantis Campaign released new merchandise available for purchase with the tagline “Cubans Against Karla Marx,” referencing Democrat Charlie Crist’s running mate, Karla Hernandez-Mats.
Hernandez-Mats was slammed for a Nov. 26, 2016 Tweet issued after the death of Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro known for brutalizing and abusing inhabitants of the country.
“A political figure dies at 90. Most in Miami rejoice, many in Cuba mourn #FidelCastro,” she originally said.
“Charlie knows full well the pain and devastation that the Castro regime has inflicted on Cubans, and still he willfully chose someone who celebrates the murderous dictator’s regime. This is appalling, but sadly not surprising, because Charlie himself has visited Cuba to pose for a smiling photo with a Communist regime mouthpiece,” the DeSantis campaign told Florida’s Voice.
“Charlie might not care about the victims of communism or the devastation that this evil ideology has wrought on every country where it’s been tried, but Governor DeSantis does.”
After backlash, Hernandez-Mats deleted the tweet and compared Gov. Ron DeSantis to Castro.
Besides her sympathy for the Cuban tyrant, Mats-Hernandez is also a far-left extremist and union boss with quite a dubious history. Therefore, she has earned the name Karla Marx.
Of course, the Crist campaign will try to spin this as some type of attack and the Florida media will jump to the defense of Karla Marx, but the truth is impervious to their propaganda. The reality is Karla Marx is a far-left extremist who insulted Cuban American voters in Florida with her public mourning of Fidel Castro.
We won’t forget on November 8th.
