This video works! My remarks to the New College of Florida Grads. Enjoy.
This was a beautiful and heartwarming talk you gave to these students, Michael, and it really touched my heart because I lived in Florida for 40 years and I can’t believe what is happening there in front of our eyes. It is like DeSantis read exactly what it is to be a fascist and is now giving Florida a very bitter taste of what it will be in this country if he were ever able to become President. Even if he isn’t elected, he will be spewing his authoritarian claptrap if he runs and people buy into it which, to me, is very frightening. One of the first things fascists do besides lie and manipulate is to ban books. I think this is heartbreaking. And this is only the beginning. I will continue my pledge to buy banned books, such as “Maus”, say gay every opportunity I get and I will watch Sesame Street.I know you will continue to speak the truth in a compassionate way and encourage us to speak up and speak out about the values and principles our country was founded on. Thank you!
Good message, Michael. I guess New College must be State funded to allow such transgressions from the guv. He is a disgrace. I hope Disney abandons the State completely. New Mexico would probably welcome Disney with open arms, and they are not subject to hurricanes or earthquakes as far as I know.
Thank you, Michael, for paying attention and helping us all pay attention. I send my heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to these grads as well.
A warm, sweet message. Thank you, Michael. It reminded me of a quote attributed to Wavy Gravy, "Put your good where it does the most." Amen.
When good people stand up for each other Tyrants shrink and run away.
These young people give me hope. Lets help them get to where they are going. Let us also redefine replacement theory, where these bright young people will replace the dusty old, hate brained, zombie herders.
People joke about Florida as being Death's waiting room. Is it Democracy's turn in Florida?
What subliminal brainwashing techniques are Republicans using to get these idiots in positions of power? People keep voting for these fatheads that abuse the power they are granted.
Yuck, America. Do better.
Thank you so much for supporting these students who’ve been through hell this year. The fight continues in Sarasota and in much of Florida as we protect all of our voices!
Thank you Michael~ for your voice in this world~
How do I send the Florida graduates a video of support as a professor from my university?
Thank you Michael. That was a beautiful and heartwarming message.
Michael, thank you for this heartfelt message.Your sincerity is palpable, and every New College of Florida will feel it.
Great message. I live 6 months in sarasota and 6 in reality in traverse city! We are thinking of canning Florida although there are people who dislike DeSatan. But thankful my heart and head is I am Michigander. I will happily pay a ton more in taxes but NEVER will be Florida resident.
That was a very nice video. I am missing something. I'm usually on top of things but I don't know what is going on with New College of Florida. I will have to do some research. But I like your speech.
Wonderful message for these graduates. We all wish them brighter and safer futures. Vote!
The beautiful voice of reason and decency. Thank you for saying it for all of us who are like-minded.
